The e-commerce.

[Addon} Modular Front Page


Recommended Posts


I am very new to oscommerce and on a steep learning curve and needing some hand-holding. I have found this forum very willing and helpful. I would like to install the rotator slide model. I have followed the instructions and have installed the model using all defaults to start with:


I have activated the model in Banner Management:


The next screen seems to allow for only one image:



Nothing appears on front shop screen.

I am using osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.4.1 CE

I am obviously doing something wrong. Can someone point me in the right direction?

many thanks

You should post this in another general support thread for CE or you should create a new one. It is not related to this topic.

Meanwhile: you need to add a banner module to your store to show it on your public store side.

There is none included in CE but there has been an add-on just uploaded today:

With using Category Images, is it possible to limit the number of categories shown?

Figured it out.  In the fp_categories_images.php file add to select statement what categories you wish to ignore:   

 $categories_query_raw = "
                from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd
                  join " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c
                    on (c.categories_id = cd.categories_id)
                  c.parent_id = '0'
                   cd.language_id = '" . (int) $languages_id . " ' and  cd.categories_id!='57' and  cd.categories_id!='60' and  cd.categories_id!='60' and  cd.categories_id!='42' and  cd.categories_id!='50' and  cd.categories_id!='59'
                   and  cd.categories_id!='67'
                order by

The older versions of oscommerce used definitions, those items with capital letters in the errors. The later versions did away with those and use actual names. So you have to replace them to get the code to work. In this case, replace




Note that the apostrophes are required.
