category driven banners

Recommended Posts

Hi, just a little tip for anyone struggling with 'the cookbook's Category Driven Banners mod when trying to link internally.


When you click on a banner it opens up a new window which for me didn't really work as i was using the mod to link to products within my shop rather than other websites. I tried for a while to change the code within the contribution and also tried combing 2 contributions to get it to work but couldn't do it.


In the end i found a really simple answer to the problem. In include/functions/banner.php you just need to change the redirect from this


$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>';


to this

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


unfortunately this means that all your banners will open in the current window but that works fine for me.


If anyone knows how to do this without effecting the other banners let me know.
