Default New Side Box

Hi All.

I'd like to add a new box on the right side, with a list of links to other sites. Does anyone have instructions for doing this please?

Thanks, Steve.

Default Re: New Side Box

Hi there,

It's pretty easy - open up skin1/customer/home.tpl and find the line:

Code:
<div id="right-bar">

And place the following code below it - work out exactly where e.g. below the minicart but above the news section for instance.

Code:
{include file="modules/links.tpl"}

Now save home.tpl.

Now, in your skin1/modules folder, create a new file called links.tpl and place the following code inside:

Code:
{capture name=menu} <ul> <li>LINK 1</li> <li>LINK 2</li> <li>LINK 3</li> ... </ul> {/capture} {include file="customer/menu_dialog.tpl" title="Links" content=$smarty.capture.menu}

Change the links to whatever you would like and save.

Hi John

Thanks for the helpfull information.

Could you tell me exactly how to do the following.

1/ Create a new side box and insert an image.

2/ Create a new side box and insert 2 or 3 images vertically.

3/ Create a new side box and insert a clickable image that can take a customer to a product within my site.

4/ Create a new side box and place a youtube video in it. Can this be done.

Thanks for any direction.

Regards

John

Default Re: New Side Box

This is great!

I want to create one side box to show shop by size

I have in mind to use the search.

Such as, search for large, and all the large sizes come up, and copy and paste the link between capture.

But the problem is, I have the search keywords for large for some other item, and it's show up.

How do I create a search link for just to search the data base, not the title and the keywords.

Thanks!

I am using 4.1.11 and I can't find the line

<div id="right-bar">

This is the 4.2.x template editing section.

In 4.1.x look for:

<!-- /central space -->

Just after this there should be a </table>

After that closing table tag are the right hand menu boxes.

Hope that helps,
Jason
