Change prestashop stores google maps zoom

Good day visitor.

In prestashop there is "Stores" section.

To change zoom of the default map which loads up after navigating there, go to:

  • /js/ folder
  • open stores.js
Go to line 196.

You will see code like this:

map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'), {
center: new google.maps.LatLng(defaultLat, defaultLong),
zoom: 15,
mapTypeId: 'roadmap',
mapTypeControlOptions: {style: google.maps.MapTypeControlStyle.DROPDOWN_MENU}

Change Zoom to whatever you like.

Good luck!

JQuery email check

To check if user typed his email right you can use jquery.

Atribute of reg:
var emailReg = /^([\w-\.]+@([\w-]+\.)+[\w-]{2,4})?$/;

And IF code:

     error = true;

Full code will could look like

    var email = $("input[name=email]").val();
    var error;
    var emailReg = /^([\w-\.]+@([\w-]+\.)+[\w-]{2,4})?$/;
      error = true;
      return false;
    if(error == true)
      alert("Bad email!");

IE image spacing issue [Solved]

Today / yesterday i faced with IE image spacing issue, which was like pain in my ass.

In Chrome, Firefox and other good browsers everything was perfect, but in IE navigation bar with background images and just images which can be clicked was not perfect. 

Solution for this is just to add CSS for the images with attribute display block.


.tablewithbadimages img

Update ( 2012.01.30 ):

Another solution for this is check if user's browser is IE and do something for all other browsers and other values for IE.

Google web preview bot check PHP

I was faced with problem of google web preview "bot".
Its really not a bot, but a chrome tool which makes preview of site which you hover in google search.

The problem was that google web preview "bot" sees page without cookies in users PC. that means google bot will see all advertises which should popup for new coming user.

So solution for this is to check who is looks at page and don't show anything if its an google bot preview.

PHP code:

$bot_v = false;  
if(strpos($uAgent,"Google Web Preview") > 0) 
{ $bot_v=true; }
