Move language box to header.php


Recommended Posts



I would like to move the languages box to the header (I already removed the cart, login, checkout icons and would like to put this box there). Can I just copy the include entry in the right side pane or table and put it in the header.php?




Also, anyone have Paypal IPN I could check out? (How it looks to the customer.) I am not sure I want to use Paypal, since we are looking at a merchant gateway solution (ECHO).

Create a file /includes/boxes/language_header.php and place this code in it:


<!-- languages_header //-->




 if (!is_object($lng)) {

   include(DIR_WS_CLASSES . 'language.php');

   $lng = new language;


 if (getenv('HTTPS') == 'on') $connection = 'SSL';

 else $connection = 'NONSSL';

 $languages_string = '';


 while (list($key, $value) = each($lng->catalog_languages)) {

   $languages_string .= ' <a href="' . tep_href_link(basename($PHP_SELF), tep_get_all_get_params(array('language', 'currency')) . 'language=' . $key, $connection) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES .  $value['directory'] . '/images/' . $value['image'], $value['name']) . '</a> ';


echo $languages_string;




<!-- languages_header_eof //-->


Edit your /include/header.php and add this code where you want the languages to appear:


<?php include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'languages_header.php'); ?>


That should make the language flags magically appear in the header for you :D

Great Tip


I have the flags in the Header Table on the left side. Just delete the <tr><td> in the languages_header.php. But how could i set the flags in the middle of the table same as the text ( basket, checkout,account ). I know......after the flag image........align="center" normal. But here?


Also i want the currencies in the header table. I try the same way as the languages, delete the table tags, but get the same box as in the coloum_right.
