Side menu

Side menu

is there a way to get the menu to display in alphabetical order for the categories, and most recently added for the products? or even alphabetical order for the products to? my client wants to be able to customise the menu himself, this would not be possible would it? IE: move menu items up and down as he sees fit?

the side menu is created in the CSSMenuWriter/intermediate.php file.


you could edit the recordsets herre to add an order by clause


the reocrdsets are at lines 42:

php:
$query_ProductCategories = sprintf("SELECT * FROM categories WHERE CategoryParent = %s", GetSQLValueString($colname_ProductCategories, "int"));




and 69:

php:
$query_ProductMenu = sprintf("SELECT * FROM categories WHERE CategoryParent = %s", GetSQLValueString($catParam_ProductMenu, "int"));





you could edit those to:

php:
$query_ProductCategories = sprintf("SELECT * FROM categories WHERE CategoryParent = %s ORDER BY CategoryName DESC", GetSQLValueString($colname_ProductCategories, "int"));




and 69:

php:
$query_ProductMenu = sprintf("SELECT * FROM categories WHERE CategoryParent = %s  ORDER BY CategoryName DESC", GetSQLValueString($catParam_ProductMenu, "int"));




reordering the categories manually is not supported.

Sorry I know this ticket is a little old, just getting round to doing it, does this apply to ps2? as my intermediate file is different to yours then?

this is what i got

<div id="sideMenu">
<?php /* ?>
<?php require_once('../Connections/localhost.php'); ?>
<?php */ ?>
<?php
mysql_select_db($database_localhost, $localhost);
$query_ProductCategories = "SELECT * FROM productcategories WHERE CategoryID = (SELECT ProductCategoryID FROM products WHERE ProductCategoryID = CategoryID AND ProductLive <> 0 LIMIT 1)";
$ProductCategories = mysql_query($query_ProductCategories, $localhost) or die(mysql_error());
$row_ProductCategories = mysql_fetch_assoc($ProductCategories);
$totalRows_ProductCategories = mysql_num_rows($ProductCategories);
?>
<?php do { ?>
<?php
$catParam = $row_ProductCategories['CategoryID'];
?>
<?php
$catParam_ProductMenu = "0";
if (isset($catParam)) {
$catParam_ProductMenu = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $catParam : addslashes($catParam);
}
mysql_select_db($database_localhost, $localhost);
$query_ProductMenu = sprintf("SELECT * FROM products WHERE ProductLive <> 0 AND COALESCE((SELECT GroupingID FROM productoptions WHERE productoptions.ProductID = products.ProductID LIMIT 1), ProductID) = ProductID AND ProductCategoryID = %s", GetSQLValueString($catParam_ProductMenu, "int"));
$ProductMenu = mysql_query($query_ProductMenu, $localhost) or die(mysql_error());
$row_ProductMenu = mysql_fetch_assoc($ProductMenu);
$totalRows_ProductMenu = mysql_num_rows($ProductMenu);

$WA_localRoot = "".$WAGLOBAL_localRoot. "";
$WA_remoteRoot = "".$WAGLOBAL_remoteRoot. "";
$WA_curURL = strtolower((isset($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]))?$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]:"");
$assumedRoot = $WA_remoteRoot;
if ((strpos($WA_curURL,strtolower($WA_localRoot)) !== false && strpos($WA_curURL,strtolower($WA_localRoot)) == 0) && (strlen($WA_localRoot) >= strlen($WA_remoteRoot) || strpos($WA_curURL,strtolower($WA_localRoot)) === 0)) {
$assumedRoot = $WA_localRoot;
}

?>
<a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>Products_Results.php?Search=true&CategoryID=<?php print $row_ProductCategories['CategoryID']; ?>"><h2><?php print $row_ProductCategories['CategoryName']; ?></h2></a>
<ul >
<?php do { ?>
<?php if ($totalRows_ProductMenu > 0) { // Show if recordset not empty ?>
<li><span><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>Products_Detail.php?ProductID=<?php echo $row_ProductMenu['ProductID']; ?>"><?php print $row_ProductMenu['ProductName']; ?></a></span></li>
<?php } // Show if recordset not empty ?>
<?php } while ($row_ProductMenu = mysql_fetch_assoc($ProductMenu)); ?></ul>
<?php
mysql_free_result($ProductMenu);
?>
<?php } while ($row_ProductCategories = mysql_fetch_assoc($ProductCategories)); ?>
<?php
mysql_free_result($ProductCategories);
?>
</div>

same idea, you just need to modify the recordset code to add an order by clause:

php:
$query_ProductCategories = "SELECT * FROM productcategories WHERE CategoryID = (SELECT ProductCategoryID FROM products WHERE ProductCategoryID = CategoryID AND ProductLive <> 0 LIMIT 1) ORDER BY CategoryName";




and

php:
$query_ProductMenu = sprintf("SELECT * FROM products WHERE ProductLive <> 0 AND COALESCE((SELECT GroupingID FROM productoptions WHERE productoptions.ProductID = products.ProductID LIMIT 1), ProductID) = ProductID AND ProductCategoryID = %s ORDER BY CategoryName", GetSQLValueString($catParam_ProductMenu, "int"));

sorry, the second query:

php:
$query_ProductMenu = sprintf("SELECT * FROM products WHERE ProductLive <> 0 AND COALESCE((SELECT GroupingID FROM productoptions WHERE productoptions.ProductID = products.ProductID LIMIT 1), ProductID) = ProductID AND ProductCategoryID = %s ORDER BY CategoryName", GetSQLValueString($catParam_ProductMenu, "int"));




should be:

php:
$query_ProductMenu = sprintf("SELECT * FROM products WHERE ProductLive <> 0 AND COALESCE((SELECT GroupingID FROM productoptions WHERE productoptions.ProductID = products.ProductID LIMIT 1), ProductID) = ProductID AND ProductCategoryID = %s ORDER BY ProductName", GetSQLValueString($catParam_ProductMenu, "int"));
