First of all What is the best iPage web host to design your on webpage? Many thanks for any answer or 2. Another question I got... I want to make my shop to be more attractive both for search engines and for people. I am going to add there articles about bad&good sides of tobacco, it's history, details on cigarette types (e.g. European/US/Russian differences), etc. This would also allow me to link to article pages from tobacco-prohibiting sites and catalogs..

The problem is that I want these articles/news to look like a part of a site. I.e. I want an infobox on the front page that shows a paragraph from last/random article, I want articles to be surrounded with usual shop stuff (header, categories, banners), etc..

Could you advice any contribution to integrate articles into store structure?.

Have you ever done anything like this?.

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

Comment #1

Thanx, Richard.

Actually I used this approach already for creating "conditions of use" page..

The bad point is that it requires special care fo each page added. I want articles/news to be added more or less regularly -> I want some more or less automated way to add them and hope that somebody created it already..

I am going to try some News contribution, but hopefully there is something more close to my demands...

Hey Doctor how did you make your center page seperate from the background? Ive been trying to figure that out...I like the way you did your site....thanks..

Comment #3

Vince, I installed some contribution for it..

I don't remember the exact name, but it was something like "center shop"...

Comment #4

I am using the Article Manager contribution, but I was also just enquiring if Newsdesk would be more appropriate..

I don't know much about Newsdesk or it's distinguishing features.

Article Manager is pretty good, the info is organized into a tree topic/article structure - I don't know exactly how Newsdesk works..

Comment #5

Right, thumbs up for Article Manager. Its got a lot of configuration options, article reviews, article abstracts, authors, and cross-sell links to related products. The infobox doesn't show a paragraph as you mentioned, but it has links to New Articles, All Articles, and of course your topics...

The best way to do it is copy one of the existing pages and rename it ie: conditions.php to info.php.

You need to also copy and rename the language file and change the text.

Change the includes to the new lang file.

Your info.php file should say require info.php instead of conditions.php in this line.

Require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES$language'/'FILENAME_CONDITIONS);.

To.

Require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES$language'/'FILENAME_INFO);.

Add the file to the filenames.php.

Again just copy and change this line.

Define('FILENAME_CONDITIONS', 'conditions.php');.

To.

Define('FILENAME_INFO', 'info.php');.

You can make as many pages as you want and add them to the information box or anyplace else for that matter..

There was a good step by step explanation on how to do this in the wiki but I tried linking to it this morning and all the wiki links are now going to the new knowledge base. That is sad, much as I think the new layout is better there was still a lot of info in the wiki that was not included in the new knowledge base..

Anyway it is not really very hard. Give it a shot and if you have any problems post the error message you get..
