Default installing Lexity.com addon

Hi Guys,

I was having some problems installing the Lexity.com add-on to my site so I thought I'd add this in case anyone else was having problems with it as I couldn't find any help on the forums.

It says to add this to just before the </head> tags.

I tried adding it to my service_head.tpl file but it didn't work so I just added it directly above the </head> tag in home.tpl.

Code:
<!-- Added by Lexity. DO NOT REMOVE/EDIT --> (Lexity.com supply code to go here) <!-- End of addition by Lexity. DO NOT REMOVE/EDIT -->

Which I did but the { at the start of the java script seemed to confuse xcart.

The way I fixed this was by adding in {literal} before the code and {/literal} after the code so it should look like this.

Code:
<!-- Added by Lexity. DO NOT REMOVE/EDIT --> {literal} (Lexity.com supply code to go here) {/literal} <!-- End of addition by Lexity. DO NOT REMOVE/EDIT -->

This now works a treat and the software itself is quite nice to use.

It isn't anywhere near as good as Google Analytics but it does have a nice user interface and is easy on the eye if you just want a quick overview of who is on your site and and what they are buying.

The best thing is its Free which as i'm sure you are aware us Scotsmen like

David-Allan,

Thanks for the help! We have updated the instructions on our site, too.

The customer/home.tpl file will be in a different directory (than skin1) based on what skin is current active, right?

Yes it will. You can access the current skin directory by using {$AltSkinDir}.

Instead of just surrounding the JS with {literal}{/literal} you can simply replace "{" with {$ldelim} and "}" with {$rdelim}. Then you can still use smarty tags in your script.
