osCommerce

The e-commerce.

The Right hand column

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I posted this in the Templates forum, but it looks like no one is going to reply there. Even since I installed OsCommerce with the template I use it has never used the column_right.php file, I guess this is just how the template was designed. However I would like to use it just like a normal OsCommerce site would. I have the column_right.php file in osc/includes and it seems to have all the necessary code inside it.

 

How do i get it to show up on my site though? What files do I need to edit etc.?

 

Thanks,

 

Ben :thumbsup:

 

I thought i'd include a quick demonstration incase no one gets what im talking about

You need to change most of the files in your root directory (the ones that are used for displaying a page). You need to include this code, but it may not format correctly if they have changed the code on the pages.

	<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">
<!-- right_navigation //-->
<?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'column_right.php'); ?>
<!-- right_navigation_eof //-->
</table></td>

ok, I added that code to my index.php page to start with and it did appear on the page and with all the boxes I wanted, however, the formatting and layout of the page was screwed up.

 

I dont really know much about html or php. If I post my index.php file could you look at it and try to sort out the formatting so that the right hand column is in the right place?

 

thanks :)

 

btw, im using this subdomain to test it on http://testing.discountmania.co.uk/osc/ as I obviously dont want to damage my live site

 

EDIT: I can send you the file if it is easier to read

ok i tried that, you can see what it looks like here: http://testing.discountmania.co.uk/osc/

 

As you can see, the main body of the page and the footer has all moved to the left hand side instead of being centred (im not sure if this will happen on your monitor, im using 1280 x 1024, on smaller monitors you may not see the difference). Im not sure what those 5 grey boxes with text in are, i must have added some google ads or something a while back :(

 

What can I do to get it looking back to normal? heres my live site if you need to see the layout before I added the right hand column. http://discountmania.co.uk/

Templates, like the one you are using, generally hack the oscommerce code up quite a bit so code like the above may not be able to be just copied in. From the way you described the problem, which I see you have fixed, sounds like there was a missing <tr>. You will just have to play around with it, or post if here and someone might look at it for you.
