How do you remove the all right column?

Anyone up for a challenge...

 

I was kind of hoping it might happen in default.php.

I tried:

<!-- body_text_eof //-->

   <td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">

<!-- right_navigation //-->

<?php [b]/*[/b] require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'column_right.php'); [b]*/[/b]  ?>

<!-- right_navigation_eof //-->

   </table></td>

 </tr>

</table>

<!-- body_eof //-->

as well as deleting this section of code, but to no avail. I think I could fumble through it if someone could point me in the right direction and assure me it's possible.

The contributions pages don't have a right column, so there must be a way!

Ok, so I do have a question after all.

I followed directions from Wiki:

http://wiki.oscommerce.com/helpHowtoRemoveBoxes

 

and changed code in default.php, however really it was just adding some spaces.

Well, the column is displaying the code now, and before I

remove the code in question from EVERY php file that displays a page

I would like to be certain there wasn't a typo in the document.

 

So this time, I really could use some assistance!

 

This is what my default is showing now:

I actually need it to go completely away.

I want a background image to repeat down the right side of the page, but the image changes with each page. I tried simply commenting everything out, but there is still something there taking up space when that happens and the image won't come up.

 

Somebody, anybody?

Gracias!

You have to edit all the .php files in your base catalog directory that include column_right.php. You should not have to edit any of the files under include, etc.

 

Hth,

This is the piece of code that generates the whole column right.

Found at the bottom of every page in the catalog folder :cry:

<!-- body_text_eof //-->

   <td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" valign="top"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">

<!-- right_navigation //-->

<?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'column_right.php'); ?>

<!-- right_navigation_eof //-->

   </table></td>

 

The Html part obviously makes a table the full length of you main page and the PHP calls the boxes.

 

Depending on how you want to put your background image?

Either delete the whole code from the <TD> to the </TD> or just delete the call to the column right and put your image as a backround in the <table>.

 

Unfortunaltely if this piece of code was placed in the footer.php file you would only have to make the change there, but it isnt so you will need to alter every page found in the catalog folder.

 

Hope this helps you to acheive what you are trying to do?

if you wanted to remove the column from displaying, rename the file , like from column_right.php to column_right_no.php

To eleimate a file from displaying , its easier to rename it.

Sorry, but you probably will have to replace what you removed to get the script off your page. Your other choice is to replace the default with someones default and go from there.

SCORE!

 

Just in case this may help someone else, I have a tendency to not see things clearly at the end of the day...

 

Anyway, I was trying to figure out how to edit the code, and upon reviewal, I was supposed to remove it.

So, yay, no more right column!

 

:wink:

Thanks to everyone who had a moment to assist...

and Lars,

This link was awesome! I am currently working on my second osCommerce project and it would have saved me so much time if I had been pointed in this direction in the beginning.

It should be required reading for all!

:lol:
