    Default new sidebox change text to *.gif

    Hi there,
    I've created a new sidebox called Good to know.
    I've created a header (gif file) for it called goodtoknowhead.gif

    How do I change the text currently displayed to use my custom image?

    Hope this makes sense!!

    Thanks

    Default Re: new sidebox change text to *.gif

    Ok I got the image working for the good to know heading.
    I forgot to add the image to my template file and update the stylesheet headings.php file.

    Somehow the text "Good to Know" is below the sidebox image. Even though it's not visible it's there and it's making any page I place under the good to know heading be out of alignment.

    Do you know how I can get rid of the text?
    I was given instructions for a similar issue in another thread but this is really doing my head in. I just can't work it out.

    please help!!

    Use the Images for Titles mod from Free Addons for your sidebox heading. That automatically handles the headings where you have images properly named and leaves the rest alone.

    Or you can change the define for your new sidebox title to be the image instead of text:
    PHP Code:
    define('YOUR_SIDEBOX_TITLE'zen_image(DIR_WS_TEMPLATE 'buttons/' $_SESSION['language'] . '/your_sidebox_image.gif''Your Sidebox Heading')); 
    Save the image file in /includes/templates/your_template/buttons/english/.

    Hi there,
    where do i find define('YOUR_SIDEBOX_TITLE', zen_image(DIR_WS_TEMPLATE . 'buttons/' . $_SESSION['language'] . '/your_sidebox_image.gif', 'Your Sidebox Heading'))

    I searched for zen_image(DIR_WS_TEMPLATE . 'buttons/' . in Admin> dev tools but it didn't show up!!

    You won't find it. You need to find the existing define for whatever the custom sidebox title is and change it similar to the example. I can't write it exactly for you because I don't know your sidebox id, image filename, etc.

    Use Tools > Developers Toolkit to find the file where the current sidebox title text is defined.

    I changed the blank_sidebox_defines.php file from this
    <?php
    /**
    * blank sidebox definitions - text for inclusion in a new blank sidebox
    *
    * @package templateSystem
    * @copyright 2007 Kuroi Web Design
    * @copyright Portions Copyright 2003-2007 Zen Cart Development Team
    * @license http://www.zen-cart.com/license/2_0.txt GNU Public License V2.0
    * @version $Id: blank_sidebox.php 2007-05-26 kuroi $
    */

    define('BOX_HEADING_BLANK_SIDEBOX', 'Good to Know');
    define('TEXT_BLANK_SIDEBOX', '<a href="http://www.lovetovape.com.au/index.php?main_page=page&id=14">E-Juice</a>');

    ?>

    to this

    <?php
    /**
    * blank sidebox definitions - text for inclusion in a new blank sidebox
    *
    * @package templateSystem
    * @copyright 2007 Kuroi Web Design

    * @version $Id: blank_sidebox.php 2007-05-26 kuroi $
    */

    define('GOOD_TO_KNOW_TITLE', zen_image(DIR_WS_TEMPLATE . 'buttons/' . $_SESSION['language'] . '/goodtoknowhead.gif', 'Good to Know'));
    define('TEXT_BLANK_SIDEBOX', '<a href="http://www.lovetovape.com.au/index.php?main_page=page&id=14">E-Juice</a>');

    ?>

    The text that was there has now changed to
    BOX_HEADING_BLANK_SIDEBOX


    I searched for that in admin and it came up with 4 matches
    they are shown in the attached image.

    Which one do I need to change?

    Cheers,

    Maxy

    There is no Images for Titles image there - it is still the background image. What filename did you use for the header image, and where exactly is it located?
    You appear to have deleted the define for BOX_HEADING_BLANK_SIDEBOX, which is why that particular text is showing. If you find the language file where it should be and add

    define('BOX_HEADING_BLANK_SIDEBOX', '');

    you will get no actual text in that location.


    The tpl_ or box file is still looking for BOX_HEADING_BLANK_SIDEBOX, not GOOD_TO_KNOW_TITLE, and since you have deleted it, it can only show the constant name.

    I changed the Blank_sidebox_defines.php file located here /includes/languages/english/extra_definitions.

    now the text is showing as good to know again.

    The file name is goodtoknowhead.gif and it's located in includes/templates/surfshop/buttons/english/

    and also in includes/templates/template_default/buttons/english/

    Cheers,
