    that's kinda cool that code adds the reviewers content text in the side box, which is nicer then then just having the product name but can you cut down the content to 30 characters, as it looks like it displays the whole review in the sidebox

    again thanks again linda

    Change the 60 to what you want ...

    If you need the name in there, you could add it between the image and the description by referencing it like it is on the alt tag of the image:
    $random_review_sidebox_product->fields['products_name']

    Put the 60 back and add a substr around the text ... for example:
    Code:
    substr($random_review_sidebox_product->fields['reviews_text'], 0, 20)

    I used:
    Code:
        $content .= '<a href="' . zen_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_REVIEWS_INFO, 'products_id=' . $random_review_sidebox_product->fields['products_id'] . '&reviews_id=' . $random_review_sidebox_product->fields['reviews_id']) . '">' . zen_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $random_review_sidebox_product->fields['products_image'], $random_review_sidebox_product->fields['products_name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '<br />' . zen_break_string(nl2br(zen_output_string_protected(stripslashes(substr($random_review_sidebox_product->fields['reviews_text'], 0, 20)))), 60, '-<br />') . ' ..</a><br /><br />' . zen_image(DIR_WS_TEMPLATE_IMAGES . 'stars_' . $random_review_sidebox_product->fields['reviews_rating'] . '.gif' , sprintf(BOX_REVIEWS_TEXT_OF_5_STARS, $random_review_sidebox_product->fields['reviews_rating']));
    Meanwhile, glad you have it working now ...

    Great mod it worked for me too. However having made the mod I now have two strange problems and I am not sure if it is related to the mod.

    my site is www.fastbikegear.co.nz and I am using the ZJ black template.

    The first problem is that my manufacturer's info side box now has the same contents as my new products info side box?

    The second problem is that the order that my side boxes appears in does not match that set in my Layout Box Controller?

    Is anyone able to shed any light on what I have done wrong and what I need to do to fix this?

    Many thanks in advance
