I have another problem.
I try to modify the plaincart and the problem is that the images doesn't show.
The code is this:

<?php
if (!defined('WEB_ROOT')) {
	exit;
}

$productsPerRow = 2;
$productsPerPage = 4;

//$productList    = getProductList($catId);
$children = array_merge(array($catId), getChildCategories(NULL, $catId));
$children = ' (' . implode(', ', $children) . ')';

$sql = "SELECT pd_id, pd_name, pd_price, pd_thumbnail, pd_qty, c.cat_id
		FROM tbl_product pd, tbl_category c
		WHERE pd.cat_id = c.cat_id AND pd.cat_id IN $children 
		ORDER BY pd_name";
$result     = dbQuery(getPagingQuery($sql, $productsPerPage));
$pagingLink = getPagingLink($sql, $productsPerPage, "c=$catId");
$numProduct = dbNumRows($result);

// the product images are arranged in a table. to make sure
// each image gets equal space set the cell width here
$columnWidth = (int)(100 / $productsPerRow);
?>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="20">
<?php 
if ($numProduct > 0 ) {

	$i = 0;
	while ($row = dbFetchAssoc($result)) {
	
		extract($row);
		if ($pd_thumbnail) {
			$pd_thumbnail = WEB_ROOT . 'images/product/' . $pd_thumbnail;
		} else {
			$pd_thumbnail = WEB_ROOT . 'images/no-image-small.png';
		}
	
		if ($i % $productsPerRow == 0) {
			echo '<tr>';
		}

		// format how we display the price
		$pd_price = displayAmount($pd_price);
		
		echo "<td width=\"$columnWidth%\" align=\"center\"><a href=\"" . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . "?c=$catId&p=$pd_id" . "\"><img src=\"$pd_thumbnail\" border=\"0\"><br>$pd_name</a><br>Price : $pd_price";

		// if the product is no longer in stock, tell the customer
		if ($pd_qty <= 0) {
			echo "<br>Out Of Stock";
		}
		
		echo "</td>\r\n";
	
		if ($i % $productsPerRow == $productsPerRow - 1) {
			echo '</tr>';
		}
		
		$i += 1;
	}
	
	if ($i % $productsPerRow > 0) {
		echo '<td colspan="' . ($productsPerRow - ($i % $productsPerRow)) . '">&nbsp;</td>';
	}
	
} else {
?>
	<tr><td width="100%" align="center" valign="center">No products in this category</td></tr>
<?php	
}	
?>
</table>
<p align="center"><?php echo $pagingLink; ?></p>

My images are in the images/product/ folder. The other info about the products (also the image ) are taken from the database.

As far as I could see, the problem is in WEB_ROOT, because the link to the picture is this:

http://wathever.com/home/a369557/public_html/2/images/category/2a5d7eb60c1625144b3bd785bf70342c.jpg

When it should be:

http://www.whatever.com/2/images/category/2a5d7eb60c1625144b3bd785bf70342c.jpg

How can I fix this?
Thanks!

Yeah, something like that but that's just an example.
The link to the image should be:

http://www.example.com/2/images/category/2a5d7eb60c1625144b3bd785bf70342c.jpg

But instead the link to the picture is this:

http://example.com/home/a369557/public_html/2/images/category/2a5d7eb60c1625144b3bd785bf70342c.jpg

I suppose the problem is in these lines:

if ($pd_thumbnail) {
			$pd_thumbnail = WEB_ROOT . 'images/product/' . $pd_thumbnail;
		} else {
			$pd_thumbnail = WEB_ROOT . 'images/no-image-small.png';
		}

Especially in the WEB_ROOT because for some reason it gives wrong path to the file.

Try this... remove the last " / " in your

$pd_thumbnail = WEB_ROOT . 'images/product/' . $pd_thumbnail;

as I analyze your code here... it runs that the syntax of the last " / " will concatenate what ever the value of $pd_thumbnail which results to certain mistake by most programmers

and I have one thing on my mind for sure.... does that WEB_ROOT results as your folder name either?

well that could be a mistake too...

another is you did not put a slash after you concatenate the WEB_ROOT

hey may I know what's your purpose of including WEB_ROOT ?

because by default WEB_ROOT should be the web link and if you want to save it on a folder... you don't need already to include WEB_ROOT in your data path destination according to the regulations of IIS (Internet Information Services)

by the default demand as of PHP 3 or 4 it could be now saved this way

$pd_thumbnail =  'images/product/' . $pd_thumbnail; // <---default file destination handler

or if you want to include WEB_ROOT... it should be this way

$pd_thumbnail = WEB_ROOT. '/images/product/' . $pd_thumbnail;

you may try either on of these code :)

Well I tried your suggestion which I suppose is something like this:

if ($pd_thumbnail) {
			$pd_thumbnail = WEB_ROOT . '/images/product' . $pd_thumbnail;
		} else {
			$pd_thumbnail = WEB_ROOT . 'images/no-image-small.png';
		}

but didn't work.

So is there a way that it can remove this part of the link:

home/a369557/public_html

and so that the link will start from /2/....?

I tried both suggestions, but everything stays the same. Even if I delete the WEB_ROOT it path to the image stays the same.
Actually, I've tried not using WEB_ROOT even before I stared this thread, but no luck.
And I'm actually surprised how on the demo site of the plaincart everything looks OK.

since you just want to out put the image on screen try to add like this

$pd_thumbnail = WEB_ROOT . '/images/product/' . $pd_thumbnail;

I wonder if it is something in the if($pd_thumbnail) itself has a valid value the way you want it

0

I've tried it that way but it doesn't work.
Well as far as I could see, pd_thumbnail shows only in 3 places in the file and to me they all look ok.
Also the database seems ok.

Also I noticed that the web root is defined in the config.php which looks like this:

<?php
ini_set('display_errors', 'On');
//ob_start("ob_gzhandler");
error_reporting(E_ALL);

// start the session
session_start();

// database connection config
$dbHost = 'examplehost.com';
$dbUser = 'exampleuser';
$dbPass = 'examplepass';
$dbName = 'examplename';

// setting up the web root and server root for
// this shopping cart application
$thisFile = str_replace('\\', '/', __FILE__);
$docRoot = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'];

$webRoot  = str_replace(array($docRoot, 'library/config.php'), '', $thisFile);
$srvRoot  = str_replace('library/config.php', '', $thisFile);

define('WEB_ROOT', $webRoot);
define('SRV_ROOT', $srvRoot);

// these are the directories where we will store all
// category and product images
define('CATEGORY_IMAGE_DIR', 'images/category/');
define('PRODUCT_IMAGE_DIR',  'images/product/');

// some size limitation for the category
// and product images

// all category image width must not 
// exceed 75 pixels
define('MAX_CATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH', 75);

// do we need to limit the product image width?
// setting this value to 'true' is recommended
define('LIMIT_PRODUCT_WIDTH',     true);

// maximum width for all product image
define('MAX_PRODUCT_IMAGE_WIDTH', 300);

// the width for product thumbnail
define('THUMBNAIL_WIDTH',         75);

if (!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {
	if (isset($_POST)) {
		foreach ($_POST as $key => $value) {
			$_POST[$key] =  trim(addslashes($value));
		}
	}
	
	if (isset($_GET)) {
		foreach ($_GET as $key => $value) {
			$_GET[$key] = trim(addslashes($value));
		}
	}	
}

// since all page will require a database access
// and the common library is also used by all
// it's logical to load these library here
require_once 'database.php';
require_once 'common.php';

// get the shop configuration ( name, addres, etc ), all page need it
$shopConfig = getShopConfig();
?>

Nope, it didn't work. The interesting thing is, it doesn't work either with or without the WEB_ROOT.

It is solved!
The problem was in the file in which are the category-functions.
I removed the WEB_ROOT and now my working code looks like this:

if ($cat_image) {
			$cat_image = '/2/images/category/' . $cat_image;
		} else {
			$cat_image = '/2/images/no-image-small.png';
		}

Thanks a lot for the assistance!:-)
