Brand Logo

Submitted by shaunmac on Fri, 2012-11-30 20:14.

Is there a way I can add a logo like I have for merchants to the different brands I have?

Hi Shaun,

Since there shouldn't be any overlap the same logos folder can be used - so in the first instance create logos for your brands in exactly the same way as you create / upload merchant logos.

PriceTapestry.org for WordPress doesn't currently support logos on the A-Z pages (this will be added in a forthcoming update) however it is straight forward to add. In pto_atoz.php look for the following code at line 111:

    $each = str_replace("%ITEM%",$row->$module,$each);

...and REPLACE with:

    global $pto_config_externalBaseHREF;
    global $pto_config_externalPath;
    $item_html = $row->$module;
    if ($pto_config_externalPath)
    {
      if (file_exists($pto_config_externalPath."logos/".$row->$module))
      {
        $item_html = "<img border='0' src='".$pto_config_externalBaseHREF."logos/".$row->$module."' />";
      }
    }
    $each = str_replace("%ITEM%",$item_html,$each);

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
David.

Ok I tried this and it doesn't show anything. I even have my merchant images uploaded and they are not showing on the merchant page. The page is {link saved} I would like to be able to show the merchant logo on the price compare part instead of just a text link and maybe on the all merchants page. I was guessing once I got the merchant loges figured out the brand should work. any idea?

Hi Shaun,

Merchant logos (and ergo your brand logos mod) rely on the Base HREF and Install Path settings under the External section of the PriceTapestry.org configuration (wp-admin > Settings > PriceTapestry.org)

Check that these values match exactly the values shown on the Support Info page of the /admin/ area of the associated Price Tapestry installation and that should be all it is...

Cheers,
David.

Yes that was it now it works great thank you.

If I could bother you just one more time please look at this page {link saved} Im not sure how but my sidebar for whatever reason is wrong on all my products pages like this. I was editing my search results/ each, I think and it started doing this. I put everything back but cant for the life of me get it back to the way it needs to be.

Hi Shaun,

Looking at the HTML output of the page it looks like the closing </div> of the main search results container *lt;div class='pto_search'> is inside the closing </table> tag, so that looks like a problem in Search Results / After rather than Each. That should be all it is, let me know if you're still not sure of course and if you could copy your Search Results Before / After / Each templates into your reply that will help...

Cheers,
David.

Once again you got it. I had in my search results/before. I changed it to add the table tag before the pto search and now all is well thank you again. And well done on this great script :)

Hi David

I've just set this up and it works great on the Brand page, but is it possible to also show these logos elsewhere?

I would like to show them on each product page and possible in the search results.

Is this possible?

Happy Easter

Si

Hello Si,

Sure - for Search Results, `brand` first needs to be added to the query as it is not included by default. In pto_search.php, look for the following code at line 375:

  $sql2 = "SELECT id,name,normalised_name,image_url,description,price,rating FROM `".$pto_config_databaseTablePrefix."products` WHERE id IN (".$in.")";

...and REPLACE with;

  $sql2 = "SELECT id,name,brand,normalised_name,image_url,description,price,rating FROM `".$pto_config_databaseTablePrefix."products` WHERE id IN (".$in.")";

And then the following code at line 372:

  $pto_searchResults[$k]->name = $rows3[$product->id]->name;

...and REPLACE with:

  $pto_searchResults[$k]->name = $rows3[$product->id]->name;
  $pto_searchResults[$k]->brand = $rows3[$product->id]->brand;

Now to add support for a new Search Results / Each placeholder %BRAND_LOGO%, look for the following code at line 512:

    $each = str_replace("%PRODUCT_NAME%",$row->name,$each);

...and REPLACE with:

    $each = str_replace("%PRODUCT_NAME%",$row->name,$each);
    global $pto_config_externalBaseHREF;
    global $pto_config_externalPath;
    $brand_logo_html = "";
    if ($pto_config_externalPath)
    {
      if (file_exists($pto_config_externalPath."logos/".$row->brand))
      {
        $brand_logo_html = "<img border='0' src='".$pto_config_externalBaseHREF."logos/".$row->brand."' />";
      }
    }
    $each = str_replace("%BRAND_LOGO%",$brand_logo_html,$each);

Similarly, to add support for a new Product / Main placeholder %BRAND_LOGO%, in pto_product.php look for the following code at line 388:

    $html_product = str_replace("%PRODUCT_NAME%",htmlentities($product->name,ENT_QUOTES,get_settings("blog_charset")),$html_product);

...and REPLACE with:

    $html_product = str_replace("%PRODUCT_NAME%",htmlentities($product->name,ENT_QUOTES,get_settings("blog_charset")),$html_product);
    global $pto_config_externalBaseHREF;
    global $pto_config_externalPath;
    $brand_logo_html = "";
    if ($pto_config_externalPath)
    {
      if (file_exists($pto_config_externalPath."logos/".$product->brand))
      {
        $brand_logo_html = "<img border='0' src='".$pto_config_externalBaseHREF."logos/".$product->brand."' />";
      }
    }
    $html_product = str_replace("%BRAND_LOGO%",$brand_logo_html,$html_product);

Cheers,
David.
