  • Hello all,

    I’m a geek i’ll admit it but when it comes to certain understandings of php i’m lost. Though i dont think this has anything to do with me.

    Trying to use EZSTATIC to be able to put Microshop into 1.5 NOT 1.3

    I’m using WP 1.5, with Falling Dreams 1.5b theme by Razvan Teodorescu and i’m trying to use static pages via the ezstatic plugin. Problem is that the tags Owen describes for installation in NON-default themes is for 1.2 WP. Also where here “the loop” in a 1.5 theme? I tried it in kubrick and yes it works but not everyone wants to look the same.

    Please dont post hack replies. I dont feel like cutting and pasting code all night. I would like to use Owens Plugin.

    As i said it works well in a friends 1.3 WP and i would like to see it work for me. There must be a simple page to understand how to do this. Any ideas anyone?

    thanks in advance

    Have you read the instructions here:

    (FYI: v1.3 was the beta release for v1.5. So, in this case, v1.3=v1.5.)

    i have read it but in my index looks like this for the theme:

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class=”post”>
    <div class=”data”>
    <?php the_time(‘F jS, Y’) ?>
    <h3 class=”titlu” id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>” rel=”bookmark” title=”<?php the_title(); ?>”>
    <?php the_title(); ?>
    <div class=”autor”>Posted by
    <?php the_author() ?>
    <?php the_category(‘, ‘) ?>
    <?php edit_post_link(‘Edit’,’|’,”); ?>
    <div class=”continut”>
    <?php the_content(__(‘(more…)’)); ?>
    <div class=”feedback”>
    <?php wp_link_pages(); ?>
    ” rel=”bookmark” title=”<?php _e(‘Permanent link to’); ?> <?php the_title(); ?>” class=”link-permanent”><?php _e(‘Permalink’); ?>
    <?php comments_popup_link(__(‘Comments’), __(‘Comments (1)’), __(‘Comments (%)’), ‘link-comentariu’, __(‘Comments off’)); ?>

    so you tell me where it would go, lol. i have no idea. if i need to put <!–EzStatic start–> and <!–EzStatic stop–> in there, where?

    none of the tags in this file appear in the instructions link u posted. thank you for the reply.

    Place <!--EzStatic start--> on a new line directly after <?php get_header(); ?> and <!--EzStatic stop--> on a new line directly after this segment of code:

    <?php endwhile; else: ?>
    <p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p>
    <?php endif; ?>

    close but not quite there yet. Mac.

    this is what i get:

    you are my hero though for helping me out. much apprecition.

    Ok, I’m 99.9999999% sure that <!--EzStatic start--> is in the right place. Try placing <!--EzStatic stop--> on a new line right before <?php get_footer(); ?> .

    nope. i have tried putting “stop” all over and none of them work. all this just to use paypal. lol

    dont let me waste ur time Mac. if it cant be done it cant be done.

    thanks for everything.

    all this just to use paypal.

    Actually, you caught my attention right there. You shouldn’t need to use static content to add a PayPal button if that’s what you’re trying to do. Just add its code into your sidebar.

    well sorta. see if you look at my site it’s nothing special and it’s sub hosted 4 now @

    but what i’m trying to do is sell banner ads me and my wife make for the paintball industry. we’ve been doing it for months but more through word of mouth. thought the site would be easy, simple and fast. I could make a mambo site or something but all i need is a place to display simple content.

    now for paypal i wanted to be able to include a shopping cart into the page.
    a paypal button like a donation button isnt what i need. i need to display banner info which i can do in a “page” but can i include paypals code into the “page” format? i dont thinl i can so i figured static was the best option.

    really like to make this work but i dont see it happening with this theme.

    thanks again mac.

    Hm, it actually sounds like WordPress is the exact opposite of what you’re looking for. You’ll probably be happier with Mambo or Drupal.

    well if i could get this ezstatic to work i’d bve all set. but i think i will do a mambo site much easier.

    thanks for all your help

    mac, see my problem is i always try to take the hard road.

    this was all i needed and it works perfectly so far.

    unreal it was in front of me the whole time. thanks though mac for everything.

    Excellent! Sometime we all forget that there’s always an easier solution hiding somewhere.

    I’m not really sure how to use the quicktags provided in Can you perhaps share how you got PayPal to work inside your wordpress pages?

    I was considering building an HTML page with PayPal code in it and embedding it into a page using EZStatic, but I’m not sure if that would work or not.
