character limit for gift certificate

Postby Nikolaus Gruchot » Wed Dec 08, 2004 3:34 am

Hi,

does anybody know where the hard coded wording "character limit" for the
gift certificate message box is located in the files. I have the shopsite
gift certificate all up and working the way I want it, the only flaw is that
I cannot change the (250 character limit) to (250 Zeichen) as it should read
in German.

Thanks,

Niko

The wording "character limit" is in the code itself not and currently
cannot be changed. This will be fixed in the 7.1.2 release due out
shortly. There will be a new string to configure under Preferences >
Store Text > Gift Certificate.

You could probably work around this by replacing the
[-- GiftCertToFromMsg --] tag in the template with the code that it
generates and changing the text there. The current code generated is
--------------------------
<table class="cert_to_from_msg" >
<tr><td class="cert_to_from_msg">Presented To</td>
<td class="cert_to_from_msg_val">
<input type=text name=cert_to value="" size="30" maxlength="100"></td></tr>
<tr><td class="cert_to_from_msg">From</td>
<td class="cert_to_from_msg_val">
<input type=text name=cert_from value="" size="30"
maxlength="100"></td></tr>
<tr><td class="cert_to_from_msg">Message</td>
<td class="cert_to_from_msg_val">
<textarea name=cert_msg cols=30 rows=3></textarea> (50 character limit)</td>
</tr>
</table>
--------------------------
So put this in place of the tag and change the "(50 character limit)" to
(250 Zeichen)

Hello Jim,

done and it works.

Here is something funny: When I do somthing that results in an shopsite
error message displaying on the gift certificate page (in my case I have a
gift certificate saved to my shopping cart and I am alerted that a gift
certficate cannot be paid with a gift certificate)...

-> all fields are emptied in the gift certicate page bearing the error
message
-> the hard coded '- character limit' shows up again at the message box

Happy debugging :-)

Regards,
Niko
