Box Heading showing BOX_HEADING_SHOW_RANDOM

Recommended Posts

Hi

I installed the contribution show_random and I believe that I have followed allthe instructions correct, twice now, but my heading is showing as

 

BOX_HEADING_SHOW_RANDOM instead of the title.

 

Below is a snippet from my includes/languages/english.php

 

// whats_new box text in includes/boxes/whats_new.php

define('BOX_HEADING_WHATS_NEW', 'What\'s New?');

 

// show_random box text in includes/boxes/show_random.php

define('BOX_HEADING_SHOW_RANDOM', 'Spotlight');

 

// quick_find box text in includes/boxes/quick_find.php

define('BOX_HEADING_SEARCH', 'Search');

define('BOX_SEARCH_TEXT', '');

define('BOX_SEARCH_ADVANCED_SEARCH', 'Advanced Search');

 

 

Its the middle one above. I dont see what is different - why would it not say 'Spotlight' could I be missing something somewhere else?

The webpage I am setting the catalog up on is http://www.sheepieshop.com/catalog/

The random box is showing up ok on my page but the title isnt . I am concerned as the contribution is from 2002....

 

Can someone point me in the right direction to fix this please?

Your first suspicion is correct: this contribution is obsoleted due to a change in whats_new.php.

 

The contribution is a modification to whats_new.php v1.30, and the current version is v1.31.

 

The difference causing your problem is that the infobox_box_contents array no longer has the text alignment in it, so this

$info_box_contents[] = array('align' => 'left',
                                'text'  => 'BOX_HEADING_SHOW_RANDOM'

should be

$info_box_contents[] = array('text' => 'BOX_HEADING_SHOW_RANDOM'

Thanks very much for your reply,

 

There were 2 instances of the location in the show_random.php as you described and so I removed "the location reference' from both of them.

 

Unfortunately, the title has still not appeared correctly ( or any different than before) Below is my show_random.php - can you see anything else that may be affecting it? If not, I guess I will just remove this contribution, but it is what I wanted and I cant see a newer one.

Comparing the original whats_new.php v1.30 with the contribution mod, I find only three differences: the "order by" clause is removed from the database search, the name of the box heading is changed, and local variable $whats_new_price is renamed $rprod_price.

 

So, the following is whats_new.php v1.31 with the same changes:

Thanks,

 

I can not get it to work, so I am going to remove the contribution. It is telling me

 

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ')' in /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/sheepieshop.com/httpdocs/catalog/includes/boxes/show_random.php on line 23

 

and I just dont know enough yet to be able to fix it. Thanks again for your help - it was very kind of you.
