Testimonials Module

  • Testimonials Module
This module is a re-engineered and bug-fixed version of the Customer Testimonial Package based upon

http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=430
 

The Customer Testimonial module allows the admin user to do add or edit Testimonials given by customers on the frontend and make them display on a sidebox on store front.

 

Installation

  1. Upload the 'admin' and 'catalog' folders and files from the 'upload' directory
    to the corresponding Opencart 'admin' and 'catalog' folders.
     
  2. After installation, the following files are newly added:

    admin/controller/module/testimonial.php
    admin/controller/catalog/testimonial.php
    admin/model/catalog/testimonial.php
    admin/language/english/catalog/testimonial.php
    admin/language/english/module/testimonial.php
    admin/view/template/catalog/testimonial_form.tpl
    admin/view/template/catalog/testimonial_list.tpl
    admin/view/template/module/testimonial.tpl
    catalog/controller/module/testimonial.php
    catalog/controller/product/testimonial.php
    catalog/controller/product/testimonial_feedback.php
    catalog/language/english/module/testimonial.php
    catalog/language/english/product/testimonial.php
    catalog/language/english/product/testimonial_feedback.php
    catalog/model/catalog/testimonial.php
    catalog/view/theme/default/template/module/testimonial.tpl
    catalog/view/theme/default/template/product/testimonial.tpl
    catalog/view/theme/default/template/product/testimonial_feedback.tpl
     
  3. The following OpenCart core files need to be changed:

    admin/controller/common/header.php
    admin/language/english/common/header.php
    admin/view/template/common/header.tpl

    If you have a pre-installed VQMod (Virtual Modifier) on your OpenCart system then all you have to do is to upload the 'vqmod' folder and its files from the 'upload' directory to the corresponding OpenCart 'vqmod' folder.

    Alternatively, you can change the header files manually:

    In file admin/controller/common/header.php find:
    $this->data['text_contact'] = $this->language->get('text_contact');
    Add the following after the found line:
    $this->data['text_testimonial'] = $this->language->get('text_testimonial');

    In file admin/controller/common/header.php find:
    $this->data['information'] = HTTPS_SERVER . 'index.php?route=catalog/information&token=' . $this->session->data['token'];
    Add the following after the found line:
    $this->data['testimonial'] = HTTPS_SERVER . 'index.php?route=catalog/testimonial&token=' . $this->session->data['token'];

    In file admin/language/english/common find:
    $_['text_zone']              = 'Zones';
    Add the folling after the found line:
    $_['text_testimonial']       = 'Testimonial';

    In file admin/view/template/common/header.tpl find:
    <li><a href="<?php echo $information; ?>"><?php echo $text_information; ?></a></li>
    Add the following after the found line:
    <li><a href="<?php echo $testimonial; ?>"><?php echo $text_testimonial; ?></a></li>
     
  4. Before using this newly installed Customer Testimonial feature for the first time, you must set the access rights for top administrator as follows:

    In the admin interface, choose

    Admin > Configuration > Users > User Group

    From there, select 'Top Administrator', then click on the 'Edit' link to the right. This will open up an edit window with multichoice dropdown lists for 'Access' and 'Modify' rights. In both of them, you'll see a new entry for 'catalog/testimonial' which you can select by clicking on their check boxes.
     
  5. Finally, you need to 'install' the newly added module to make it visible on the store front, as follows:

    In the admin interface, choose

    Admin > Extensions > Modules > Customer Testomonials > Install

    This will install the module and add some new tables to the MySQL database. Now click on the 'Edit' link to customize your module. In the edit screen, you can specify the Limit, Position, Status and Sort Order for newly added module, don't forgot to click on 'Save' Button as the final step.
