Conflicting Contributions


Recommended Posts



I've managed to successfully install most of the contributions I need but I'm trying to get a multi-image contribution to work and every one I've tried so far is messing up one of my other contributions.


These are the contributions I have installed in order:-


01 - OSC 2.2rc2a

02 - STS v4.6

03 - QT Pro 4.6.1

04 - CK Editor (WYSIWYG)

05 - SEO Urls


The image contribution that I tried and liked the best was the: Simple Multiple Images (Unlimited) with Fancy Popups V1.3.5


It allows you to add a couple of images and they pop up with a lightbox/fancybox on click but I've tried using file compare tools like WinMerge and it breaks the code in QT Pro. I've tried doing it manually a couple of times and it doesn't seem to work. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it right and it's a case of the code conflicting with something in QT Pro.


Anyone have any knowledge / suggestions about this?

The Simple Multi Image contribution changes the product_info.php and categories.php files extensively. So much so, that it conflicts with MANY other contributions. I would not recommend it. There are other multi image contributions available in the add-ons area.


Having said that, when you begin to add multiple contributions you will find that you will need to change the contributions, or parts of it to work with the others you already have installed.

What would you recommend Chris?


I just need something that can add at minimum, 3 extra images, so I can add pictures of the front and back of t-shirts/hoodies etc. Will be listing different colour variations as separate products, so that's not an issue. I've tried the Ultra Images add on but that didn't want to work either.


Any recommendations from anyone would be good?

u;tra images is such an easy install i do not understand why you have problems with this one, the only thing i see you falling down on is the field listing, here more than one contribution will exist with another but you need to be more intelligent than the install instructions to get it working.

This part of the product_info.php file


$product_info_query = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, pd.products_name, pd.products_description, p.products_model, p.products_quantity, p.products_image, pd.products_url, p.products_price, p.products_tax_class_id, p.products_date_added, p.products_date_available, p.manufacturers_id from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p, " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd where p.products_status = '1' and p.products_id = '" . (int)$HTTP_GET_VARS['products_id'] . "' and pd.products_id = p.products_id and pd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
$product_info = tep_db_fetch_array($product_info_query);


is where a lot of people go wrong as addons tell you to replace the whole code when they are only adding one item to the fields.

This may be allot to ask of someone, I don't know but if I uploaded the Ultra Pics contribution and the same files I have on my FTP, would anyone be willing to spare 15 minutes to do the edits for me?


No worries if not but would be a massive help.

Sorry, you mis-understood my intention. I mean't, if I uploaded the contribution and then uploaded the duplicate files from my FTP into the same zip, could someone do the edits and zip it up and send it back. Then, I could upload the changed files to the test server with the store on and test it out?
