Banner folder


Recommended Posts

when i install a new banner it installs it into the 'images' folder. I have a banner folder inside the 'images' folder that i would like it to install to instead, is there any way of this?


Sure, first, edit your admin/includes/configure.php file and add this below your definition for DIR_WS_IMAGES:


define('DIR_WS_BANNERS', DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'banners/');


Then, save that file and edit admin/banner_manager.php, and change all instances of DIR_FS_CATALOG_IMAGES to that plus ". DIR_WS_BANNERS", for example, about line 61, you'll see:


$banners_image->set_destination(DIR_FS_CATALOG_IMAGES . $banners_image_target);


Change that to this:


$banners_image->set_destination(DIR_FS_CATALOG_IMAGES . DIR_WS_BANNERS . $banners_image_target);


Make changes to all instances of it in that file, and then save and edit *catalog*/includes/configure.php, and below the definition for DIR_WS_IMAGES, add:


define('DIR_WS_BANNERS', DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'backup/');


Then save that and edit *catalog*/includes/functions/banner.php, and right about line 86, change:


$banner_string = '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_REDIRECT, 'action=banner&goto=' . $banner['banners_id']) . '" target="_blank">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $banner['banners_image'], $banner['banners_title']) . '</a>';




That should do the trick, but there's a chance I might've missed something, I don't think so though :)

I took a short cut, cuz I'm completely new here

opened my shop Monday - and could not make my banners function.

uploaded the banners by ftp to the banner folder

then in the banner manager - just wrote after .....images "/banners/filename.gif"

this did the trick
