View Full Version : Layout question + problem / bug?
August 30th, 2005, 06:22 AM
I have the width set to 770 px and when adding statistics and most viewed on index page it gets wider. Can I somehow have the index page 770 wide and use the stats box on right side (or move it to the bottom?).
Also a question of bigger importance is why the category links do not work. The pages wont load! Cell Phone works, but Nokia and Motorola under that wont work! I noticed they stop working when I ad a picture to the items in the category. The Accessories - Motorola has an item (without a picture) and that page loads.
This must also have something to do with the products links that are generated on that page. If I change via admin hte Number of columns for thumbnail pages to zero (0) the page will load!

I can't comment on how things load in cellphones or there browsers. I know nothing of that software and it is highly proprietary.
This software and the links are all coded the same across all 3 our products and it is 100% XHTML compliant. It works and operates on all browsers that we know of ( IE, Mozilla, Safari and Opera ).
Now your table thing is easy. When using the sidebar to make sure it does not break out of the table cell and looks right you simply want to set Photopost width to 100% and then create in the header and footer files of Photopost the following constrainer table
<table width ="770" cellspadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" align="center">
then in the footer

Thanks for the Layout question and I think my other question was maybe badly explained...
Se site to understand better:
If you click on the link Nokia or Motorla they wonīt work. These categories have pics in the reviews. The links below Accessories are reviews without pics. They work.
P.S. I have not ImageMagick installed and Iīm using the GD2 option. It seems to work, but what if I havenīt got GD2 installed. Could this be a problem?

You would need to see if you have gd installed by looking at php info in admin
I cant say what is the problem with those cats as the category never loads for me.
I would suggest you download the build and upload all files except the config files to ensure you dont have any corrupted files.
Without an error its hard to suggest anything
You can in admin set debug to display errors and maybe we can see an error to assist

Looks to me like you did not upload all the files
August 30th, 2005, 01:10 PM
GD support is enabled (2.0.28 compatible)
I did upload all the files but that did not help :-(
Would not like to reinstall after I made that many uploads / reviews...

I think I have solved it. The pages download very slow when it has to get a random images on Index page.
When I set "Show Random images on Index page" to no the page downloads ok. The problem is that how can I remove the show random images on subcategory page?
I think this would solve the problem?

Try turning off category images in showcat and see what happens

Show Category Options (in admin) doesnīt have that exact option, but show avatars seems to do the same thing.
Is this some sort of bug because this thing (slow download when category has pictures in it or index page has random image on *) happens on other hosts with different installations also. The old reviewpost has no similar problems!
Just check the difference by clicking on Nokia and then on Motorola. Motorola loads much faster (no pics in the reviews).
And here is the same installation (with ImageMagick) and itīs also slow:
* Index page download is very slow (20 seconds or more) if you show Random or Most Popular images on Index page.
NOTE! (This bug was reported in the bug section already...)
On the above category page clicking the image gives this kind of URL ending:
Shouldnīt it give this (same as the text link for the product):
Anyone have a solution / fix for this problem?
