    Default Specials / Columnar display

    Does anyone know where in Zen Cart code the <br /> between rows of specials gets written?

    I can see where it is writing the actual content of the seperate divs for each special but can;t figure out where the break gets scripted to split the, in my case, 3 column rows from each other.

    You can see the issue I'm trying to reslove here: zen.napiers.net - the special offers list at the bottom of the page. When the specials titles and images are of differing heights some unexpected layout issues occur caused by the float:left of the divs. I need to change the <br /> between the rows to <br style="clear:both;" />

    Any pointers appreciated

    thanks

    Instead of adding the <br />, another approach by css.

    Add the following to your stylesheet.
    .categoryListBoxContents {
    margin-top: 0.5em;
    margin-bottom: 0.5em;
    }
    And set the values you perfer.

    And the above only for template based on the classic template design.

    Thanks for the reply. Adding margins to the individual specials in the columns and rows won't help I'm afraid. I need to have a divider between the rows which clears the floats of the above row.

    It would be easy if I could just find which file the Zen code uses to place the <br /> between the rows.

    thanks anyway

    Default Re: Specials / Columnar display

    I don't think that's the right file. Those page breaks are for separating the prev/next links at the top and bottom of the page from the main body of the specials listing.

    The <br /> code I am after gets used when Zen Cart is setting up the columnar display.

    Example - say you have 9 specials and have set up in the admin to display them in rows of 3. Zen Cart inserts a <br /> between each of the 3 resulting rows. I need to figure out which file inserts those <br />'s

    <div width="33%">special 1</div><div width="33%">special 2</div><div width="33%">special 3</div>
    <br />
    <div width="33%">special 4</div><div width="33%">special 5</div><div width="33%">special 6</div>
    <br />
    <div width="33%">special 7</div><div width="33%">special 8</div><div width="33%">special 9</div>

    Oops!

    Sorry, the above info. is not correct!

    Please check the file:
    includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATEt/common/tpl_columnar_display.php

    Line 40

    <br class="clearBoth" />

    Please note, this will also affect all pages using the columnar for display.

    Default Re: Specials / Columnar display

    That's it! Thanks very much. I'd removed the <br class="clearBoth" /> from my code there a few weeks ago and what has caused the confusion is that Zen Cart continues to place a <br /> there even after I removed the code.

    Anyways thanks a lot for your time on this :-)
