Trying to get the "new prodcts for month" gone.. not just the heading but the whole box. I'd like to put my own text in there.... I saw many topics on how to do so (editing the index.phhp and removing it from both locations)

 

However my issue is that if I remove the include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_NEW_PRODUCTS); from line 265.. it also removes my categories box in my left column. Can someone tell me how to just remove the box showing the new products for the month without removing my categorie box also?

 

These are the lines I was playing with either removing or comenting out.

 

include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_NEW_PRODUCTS);

nclude(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_UPCOMING_PRODUCTS);

 

include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_NEW_PRODUCTS); ?>

 

Your help would be GREATLy appreciated!! Going nuts over this.

which version of osc you use?

 

becuase it's not possible in osc 2.2.... there are different boxes for new product and category menu..

 

just comment new product line on index page if you are using osc 2.2

I did comment out both. It removes the new product box however it also removes the category box and that is what I want to avoid. I need to have my categories displayed on the side! I've tried all combinations. And yes I'm on 2.2

 

thanks!

paste your complete code here else do this

 

-- Revert to original code and see if all is being displayed now instead of removing just comment those modules using //

 

e.g //include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_NEW_PRODUCTS);

 

if still your other part gets missing then your dev has modified new prod module to handle some addiitonal display.

The code has not been heavily modified. The area for those boxes has not been touched. you can see it live here: http://soullessapparel.com/shop/

 

Right now I have the single line of code (towards top of index.php) for the new products commented out, but it does nothing. If I were to comment out the other line (towards end of index.php), it would remove the new products box, but ALSO remove my categories box and only leave me with the info box. See screen shots:

 

<?php
   }

   include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_NEW_PRODUCTS);
   //include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_UPCOMING_PRODUCTS);
?>

 

Thats from the bottom of the page, here is the one from the top:

<?php //include(DIR_WS_MODULES . FILENAME_NEW_PRODUCTS); ?>

 

Everyone's help on getting this figured out is greatly appreciated!!! The reason I want to remove the new product box is because there is only going to be a small # of product and it will not be updated often. Also when you view it, the title of "FU" is where the "new product for month" was.. lol.. I edited that, was a little angry you could tell. I want that area gone!! :(

well.. 2 things to update here.

 

1. scrapped what i did already, downgraded and used STS for the site. Way easier, and integrated perfectly as I wanted into my current site (which was just html / css so very easy)

 

2. I for the heck of it, tried to remove the "new for the month" and it worked fine. must just be issue w/ the newer version.

 

Thanks all.
