    Default Add new products module and featured module to front page when oscmax is in a sub-folder

    I am using wordpress for the opening pages with OSCMax in a sub folder. How can I make the new products module and the featured module from OSCMax appear on the front page of the wordpress site?

    thanks,

    Dan

    Two completely different systems, so not easily (is anything impossible?). Have you actually looked at the code for both?

    I finally had time to look closely at this mod today and have it nearly completed. I have made up a new page with no header, footer or side columns to plug into the Wordpress page and have it plugged in and it displays nicely, showing the new products and featured products from OSCMax in the Wordpress index page. The only issue I am having is that all the links, when clicked on, open within the same wordpress page. In /includes/modules/new_products.php I have added target="_top" to the image and name links, solving that problem, but there is no code for the More Info button or the Buy Now button, so cannot change the links there. In /includes/modules/featured_gbox_products.php there is also no More Info code to change. I changed the original Buy Now button to the original code so that is resolved. Where do I find the code for the Buy Now and More info buttons?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Sounds like good progress and a useful mod for others. Care to share (as a zip)?
    I might find time to take a quick look at the problem buttons.

    As a work-around, I have replaced the More Info and buy Now buttons with text that says "Click Image For Details", which works fine for this installation.

    I've taken a quick glance over what you have sent me and in the main it's looking good.
    In your documentation, you are basing a new template on templates/aabox/main_page.tpl.php - that's an old template and likely to be missing functionality. It's safer to use fallback as a base.
    Could you re-instate the buttons on your test page, so as I can inspect the page?
