I just wanted to say "thanks". This contribution was exactly what I was looking for. It was easy to install -- the directions are great -- and in just a couple of hours I've got it doing everything I want.

 

I just wanted to thank you for all the great work, and for making my life a little easier.

Hi, i've been reading all this thread and I saw someone asking for any way to delete images on the news... I think this hasn't been implemented yet, any update on that?

 

Thanks!

Just point the image to (images/pixel_trans.gif) to get rid of the image.

Ok, thanks a lot, that solves the problem for now.

 

Now, how about popup big images? Because i've noticed that it looks weird if I put a big image on the news summary. So, I put a small image for the summary, but once on the content you can't make that image bigger, in case that you wanna get a closer look.

 

Any solution to that? Thanks for your quick reply on the delete images problem!

I cannot help you with that one, I do not use images for my news stories.

 

When you use popup big images in your products are they distorted also ? If it is then I think the problem is in your configuration-images using image sizeing. The height size has to be blank. I know I had to do it my self for products. I do not know if this sizeing is tied to the newsdesk.

The errors are nothing to do with the contribution as such.

download the file catalog/includes/filenames.php open it and place your cursor after the last ?> then press delete several times, save the file and upload it.

 

Do not use the file manager to edit online as this can cause the whitespace.

 

instead use an ftp program such as ws_ftp to download the file to a local machine and edit then upload using the ftp program

21 Jul 2004 - NewsDesk v.1.48.3

 

newsdeskerror.GIF

 

 

 

Was it bad to do the following instructions below? I did not see an area to update the Newsdesk in Admin area so I then used the instructions in install text file...

 

NOTE !!!

Below code is ONLY for osC -- 2.2 and MS1

 

 

//BEGIN -- newsdesk

array(

'title' => BOX_HEADING_NEWSDESK,

'image' => 'catalog.gif',

'href' => tep_href_link(FILENAME_NEWSDESK, 'selected_box=newsdesk'),

'children' => array(

array('title' => NEWSDESK_ARTICLES, 'link' => tep_href_link(FILENAME_NEWSDESK, 'selected_box=newsdesk')),

array('title' => NEWSDESK_REVIEWS, 'link' => tep_href_link(FILENAME_NEWSDESK_REVIEWS, 'selected_box=newsdesk')))),

//END -- newsdesk

*** MAKE SURE THAT IT IS THE admin AND NOT THE catalog INCLUDES/LANGUAGES/ENGLISH.PHP THAT YOU ADD THE ABOVE CODE TO ***

sorry to jump into the middle of this but I hope to have an easy question for you ...

 

If any of you are familiar with the Article Manager contribution, could you highlight the differences with Newsdesk ?

 

Secondly, is there a demo site for Newsdesk ?

KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON

I do not use the responsive bootstrap version since i coded my responsive version earlier, but i have bought every 28d of code package to support burts effort and keep this forum alive (albeit more like on life support).

So if you are still here ? What are you waiting for ?!

 

Find the most frequent unique errors to fix:

grep "PHP" php_error_log.txt | sed "s/^.* PHP/PHP/g" |grep "line" |sort | uniq -c | sort -r > counterrors.txt

links don't work

 

can you suggest what part of install I should repeat?

admin/FILENAME_NEWSDESK?selected_box=newsdesk

From the install instructions

 

admin /includes/filenames.php

 

#### [ ADD ]

 

// Begin newsdesk

define('FILENAME_NEWSDESK', 'newsdesk.php');

define('FILENAME_NEWSDESK_CONFIGURATION', 'newsdesk_configuration.php');

define('FILENAME_NEWSDESK_REVIEWS', 'newsdesk_reviews.php');

 

define('EDITOR_IMAGE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'modules/newsdesk/html_editor/editor_images');

// End newsdesk

Hello,

When I try to display news desk box (just plain not latest) I get the following error...

 

Warning: Illegal offset type in .../.../.../.../catalog/includes/boxes/newsdesk.php on line 61

 

It continues with the same thing with different line numbers...

61

67

81

102

 

 

How can I fix this? I dont think it has anything to do with sts...

please go to http://www.ipodxtras.com click on any of the [read more] things and they all go to the same article... the sticky one...

why?

 

also the read more things dont show up if there is no sticky article

All of these things work fine on my sites.

 

You have one article which has image with id 5 which has a more of id 6

 

I do not use STS

There is an error in the script which has to do with the [Read More] function.

 

If you enable read more for sticky topics and not for normal topics, then it will appear for ALL topics. You cannot stop this until a new version is released...

Solution: Enable readmore for both normal and sticky topics.
