    Default Re: ? Right column not displaying in template 241

    Thanks 'schoolboy',

    oh -- OK. I didn't realize that when you suggested to look in the 'tpl_main_page.php' file that it was an OVERRIDE file -- ??? ---

    When you opened the override file, did it require the "fixes" as suggested?

    Sorry 'schoolboy'...

    I may NOT be understanding your question...???...however the following is what is in the comments at the top of the tpl_main_page.php file:

    PHP Code:
    to override the global settings and turn off columns un-comment the lines below for the correct column to turn off<br />
     * 
    to turn off the header and/or footer uncomment the lines below<br />
     * 
    Noteheader can be disabled in the tpl_header.php<br />
     * 
    Notefooter can be disabled in the tpl_footer.php<br />
     * <
    br />
     * 
    $flag_disable_header true;<br />
     * 
    $flag_disable_left true;<br />
     * 
    $flag_disable_right true;<br />
     * 
    $flag_disable_footer true;<br />
     * <
    br />
     * 
    // example to not display right column on main page when Always Show Categories is OFF<br />
     
    * <br />
     * if (
    $current_page_base == 'index' and $cPath == '') {<br />
     *  
    $flag_disable_right true;<br />
     * }<
    br />
     * <
    br />
     * 
    example to not display right column on main page when Always Show Categories is ON and set to categories_id 3<br />
     * <
    br />
     * if (
    $current_page_base == 'index' and $cPath == '' or $cPath == '3') {<br />
     *  
    $flag_disable_right true;<br />
     * }<
    br />
     * 
    I may NOT understand how the PHP code works but since the flag is STILL a 'comment' [ie; "*" a the beginning of the line] my presumption is that there is NO override in play. ???

    Featured and bestseller sideboxes will only display if you have featured products, or have completed sales to have bestsellers.

    Do you have these?

    Default Re: ? Right column not displaying in template 241

    OK -- I've been doing some more experimenting and I've been able to get the 'shopping cart' and a 'search' box to display on the right.

    However, still NOT seeing the 'best_seller', 'featured', 'order_history', boxes display which is what I really want on the right. Are there conditions that need to be in place in order for those to show up ?

    Ahh Glenn, you must have been typing as I just posted that thought.

    No... I've just started setting up my ZenCart 2 days ago -- so don't have any sales yet. I was just trying to determine what the best best layout would be.

    Just put a couple of throwaway sideboxes in the right column for now, to get the look of it being populated. Putting particular sideboxes in the desired places later is trivial. The important thing to do is get a feel for the overall look and shape of the site.

    You see it takes an expert (gjh42) to separate the wood from the trees!

    Here's me thinking it's a COLUMN issue, when it's a SIDEBOX issue all along...
