In Topic: New page from template?

19 August 2007 - 06:45 AM

Is it better to put it in the template code, or add the pages through the backend using "Manage pages" and input the meta description/keywords through there?

In Topic: How to add to the same query string?

Just in case anybody else is trying to do this, I'll tell you what I did. I'm not sure if this is an elegant solution, but it works. Put this code in your form:

<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=target VALUE="custompage">

This line will explicitly assign the name of your custom page to the "target" variable each time the form is submitted. However, since it's hidden, the form element will not show up on the page.

I'm wondering if what I'm asking for is even possible. It's weird because when I type in the whole query string directly into the address bar like this:


the page behaves correctly. However, if I try to get this behavior by submitting the form on my custom page to itself, the page reloads to index.php instead of index.php?target=custompage.

Is it possible to reload to a URL that has a query string appended to it, such as http://www.mysite.co...rget=custompage, and then add new variables to the query string when the page submits to itself? Any input would be greatly appreciated. I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to put this page into my site... :(

In Topic: Horizontal Category Drop Downs

Sorry I didn't respond until now. For some reason, the forums weren't working for me yesterday.

We would also like to do the same. Where do we change this in the basic skin in 1.3.5?

Go to your skins/customer folder, and then into categories_pages/emenu_main.tpl.

Mike, out of curiosity, I'd be interested in seeing this in action. Link perhaps?

Sorry, but I decided not to go with the horizontal layout. We have too many categories, so the menu looked scrunched together. Just try it out--it's a quick change. :)
