    Does this work with 1.5.5a in the default Responsive classic template?

    I added the blank sidebox module and it comes up in the sideboxes admin but it wont appear on my storefront. I'm using 1.5.5f and I thought I had all the paths correct. Can someone please help. Thank you

    Cheers

    Yes the code would be similar to the information, more information and footer menu links.

    includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/common and sideboxes

    Then you can load those into a new mobile safe browser window or use the stock popup function similar to the [help?] link

    I'm trying to do something that turns out is more complicated than I thought. I'm wanting to do a wordpress sidebox (for a client, not me). The actual sidebox mods require the wordpress and zen cart database to be the same and I'm simply not comfortable with that. I also do not like having to change the html_header for only a sidebox.

    I do know how to include wordpress info on php pages and thought this could be done in the blank sidebox. The code for an external php page is simple:
    PHP Code:
             <?php 
      define
    ('WP_USE_THEMES'false);
      require(
    'blog/wp-load.php');
      
    query_posts('showposts=6');
             while (
    have_posts()): the_post(); 
                
    ?><div class="item">
      <p class="blogTitle"><?php the_title(); ?></p>
      <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
          <p class="blogDate">Posted on <?php the_time('l jS F, Y'?></p>
          </div>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    The actual blank sidebox code:
    PHP Code:
    $content .= '<div id="' str_replace('_''-'$box_id 'Content') . '" class="sideBoxContent">';
      echo 
    $_SESSION['id'];
      
    define('WP_USE_THEMES'false);
      require(
    'blog/wp-load.php');
                
    query_posts('showposts=6');
             while (
    have_posts()): the_post(); 
        
    $content .= '<p class="blogTitle">';
       
    $content .= the_title(); 
      
    $content .= '</p>';
      
    $content .= the_excerpt(); 
     endwhile; 
      
    $content .= '</div>'
    But no matter what I do, the actual result shows up outside/before the actual box. The resulting source code:
    HTML Code:
    xxxxxx Beading  Offers It All With Free USA S&H Beading Supplies, Craft Supplies, Wholesale Beads, Jewelry Supplies, Wholesale Jewelry High quality unique beads, jewelry making supplies, wholesale beading supplies, vintage jewelry supplies, jewelry components, vintage jewelry pieces, beads, beading. Products from all over the world that date back to the 1950ís &amp; 1960ís.<!--// bof: blanksidebox //-->
    <div class="leftBoxContainer" id="blanksidebox" style="width: 175px">
    <h3 class="leftBoxHeading" id="blanksideboxHeading">From the Blog</h3>
    <div id="blanksideboxContent" class="sideBoxContent"><p class="blogTitle"></p></div></div>
    <!--// eof: blanksidebox //-->
    So am I going about this wrong or is this simply not possible to do because of zen cart code? I see the old wp sideboxes mod doesn't use the wordpress short code. No question I can hard code categories into a new sidebox but was wanting to do more than that.
