Hi,

I have just added a contribution to add Modules to identify Featured and Special Offer Products and to list these and list Latest Products, enabling you to get rid of it from home.php/home.tpl.

The archive contains all you need, files, full instructions, a hint for usage, etc.

Code: Select all

http://www.opencart.com/contribution/category/category_id/1
Hope you all like it.

@Daniel, please feel free to use whatever may be useful (?)

Thanks for the great plugin!

I am however having some issues getting this to work. I have uploaded all of the files you provided to my test site. Added the tables to the database. Installed the modules in the admin. And verified everything twice.

The home page of my site is not displaying the new product listings and the options/flags to enable a product as a featured item are non-existent.  I'm confused now, hoping you can help me out.

Thanks,

This is because I left out the product related files from Admin  :-[

I have updated the package and instructions to suit.

All you need to do is copy the three product files from the admin section and it should all leap into life .... ::)

Sorry for the problem - old timer's moment !

No need to be sorry .. Thank you for your help.

The product options / flags now exist in the admin  :)  But it is still not rendering on my catalog pages where the "Latest Products" used to be???

I will keep looking into this ..

Thanks, -JO

Hum ...... strange ! ::)

Try clicking on the home tab, if it all then leaps into action the fault is in layout.tpl  ;D

try modifying your code to read something like :

Code: Select all

	     <?php if (($_REQUEST['controller'] == 'home') OR (!$_REQUEST['controller']))  { ?>
	     <?php if (isset($latest)) { ?>
	       <?php echo $latest; ?>
	     <?php } ?>
	     <?php if (isset($featured)) { ?>
	       <?php echo $featured; ?>
	     <?php } ?>
	     <?php if (isset($specials)) { ?>
	       <?php echo $specials; ?>
	     <?php } ?>
	     <?php } ?>
hopefully it will then work reliably (?)  ???

Thank you very much for the contribution!

it does help.  ;) Thanks

however, i got a small problem on the display of featured products and special offers after i installed to opencart 0.7.7.  if there's no spcial offer product, the following message will display in the  special off section "Notice: Undefined variable: products in catalog\template\default\module\specials.tpl on line 3".  i tried modifying specials.tpl and get the error message away.


specials.tpl

Code: Select all


<p class="heading"><?php echo $heading_title; ?></p>

<?php if (isset($products)) { ?>

<?php if ($products) { ?>
  <table style="width:100%;">
  <?php foreach ($products as $product) { ?>
    <tr class="products">
	<td style="width:108px;"><a href="<?php echo $product['href']; ?>">
         <img src="<?php echo $product['thumb']; ?>" title="<?php echo $product['name']; ?>"
           alt="<?php echo $product['name']; ?>" /></a></td>
       <td><b><a href="<?php echo $product['href']; ?>"><?php echo $product['name']; ?></a></b> - <?php echo $product['desc']; ?></td>
	  <td><?php echo $product['price']; ?></td>
    </tr>
  <?php } ?>
  </table>
<?php } else { ?>
  <p><?php echo $text_notfound; ?></p>
<?php } ?>

<?php } else { ?>
  <p><?php echo $text_notfound; ?></p>
<?php } ?>

I recently installed this contribution as follows and it works perfectly.

After following the installation instructions, I put the following (some surrounding code shown for positioning) into catalog\controller\home.php

Code: Select all

        $template->set('content', $view->fetch('content/home.tpl'));

        $template->set($module->fetch());

        $template->set('show_latest', true);
        $template->set('show_specials', true);
        $template->set('show_featured', true);

        $response->set($template->fetch('layout.tpl'));
and modified catalog\template\default\layout.tpl as follows

Code: Select all

  <div id="content">
    <?php 
        if (isset($content)) echo $content; 
        if (isset($latest) & isset($show_latest)) echo $latest; 
        if (isset($featured) & isset($show_featured)) echo $featured; 
        if (isset($specials) & isset($show_specials)) echo $specials; 
    ?>  
  </div>
So for example, $latest is set if the module is enabled and you only have to set $show_latest in the template of the controller(s) where you want to display the latest products.

Please note
  • the code snippet as shown, would display them all on in the home page.
  • the isset check on $content that was around the content div is moved inside the content div
  • putting everything including $content inside the content div maintains a continuous line on the left side for the default template

I just installed it, too, and it works fine. Well done!

Question: At the moment, when I edit a product via the

/admin/index.php?controller=product&action=update&product_id=nnn

and I select the data tab, it won't show the new special_offer and featured fields.

It would be nice if these could be set there, too. This would require an update of the files

admin/controller/product.php
admin/template/default/content/product.tpl

and shouldn't be too difficult!

I am planning to add these two new product fields as optional features to my Bulk Export/Import module when I have time.

It should do, the version (latest) I downloaded to try, shows these fields for editing.

You are right, I have now installed the latest version which lets me edit the additional product fields, too.

Check your HTML code

"class=... " should not be appearing, guess there is a < missing.

I have used the code and it works on IE7, but on FireFox it wont render the page properly.

Is there a tool to fix this?

Also, as a completely dumb question:

How do I change the:

Powered By OpenCart
Copyright © 2006

at the bottom of the page?

I want to add something to it.

Thanks once again

Actually, a few other pages render differently on these two browsers. There is no tool specific to OpenCart to solve it, you will have to play with the HTML and styles to find a consistent result.

The answer to your second question has been answered many times on the forums. You only need to search.

I have done all what you said.  But it didnot work. I want to display special products on my homepage. I have read all here but I got some confused, So I am requesting you to straighten the matter up , please.
