    @Jack_mcs Hi Jack, Thank you for reply. I had the category listing set asTrue all the time, but it doesn't show the category or sub-category at all from the beginning..... Lyn
  3. It has been awhile....3 years....where does the time go? I'm pretty sure Jim's build was simply a stock install so I don't think any add-ons were involved. If you like what you see have a look at a stock install of the version of osC that you're using to see if it does what you want out of the box. It maybe that you've made changes that are preventing you from getting the look/function you're looking for. Dan

    @ce7I wasn't referring to an addon. The CE version comes with category listing modules. You just need to install them in admin.

    @Jack_mcs Hi, Jack, I have 234.1 Edge (BS) version. I had tried all the addons (addons info #9448/#9445/#7959/#8359/#8384/#8415/#7268/#7841, and more), even 2.2 and 2.3 version with no good luck so far....I just found a post by Dan showing Kymation (Jim) boostrap website, which does exactly I am after, when click on the main page, show the 1st tier categories, and if you continue click on categories inside categories, it will show up only categories till no more categories then it show up products. I also post there to ask which addon support this function.... Thanks! Lyn
  6. @Dan Cole @kymation hi, Thank you so much for the information. I have 234.1Edge (BS) installed with few addons. Now come to the final modification of the index page. I visit Jim shop, and it is exactly what I am after, show all the sub-categories on the top, till no sub-categories, then show the product. With the version i am having now, when you click on the one with sub-categories, it doesn't show any subcategories, just products inside that sub-categories.. I had installed Jack_mac's Categories Image which is great, but it is the same only support 1st tier sub-categories. Can I please know ith Kim's website, which addon can do the same work I am after? ..

    I don't recall if you mentioned the version of oscommerce you are using but in the CE version, there are modules to display the sub-categories. Are you using those?

    @Jack_mcs Hi Jack, Thank you so much for reply. Yes, I mix 2 things together I guess. First Sub-categories module. So if you see the image attached, there are many tiers of sub-categories, and right now with your categories images, once click on the ones have sub-categories, it will show products only. Instead, I like to be able to show only sub-categories, and if no sub-categories then show up the products. And if you click on the next tier sub-sub categories, it did the same thing till the final tier of the sub-categories, no more sub-category and show only products. Second appearance of the sub-category pages. So I will try to copy your module and rename to sub-category and the appearance should stay together same as your original one. (I love the one you have much better) And when it is the final tier and showing the products only page, I like the new product index page appearance with VIEW and BUY button instead of wrong position BUY NOW button only. I think this one I will just try to copy the code to make the view button also appear. I will take your suggestion and copy the module and see how it go, will come back later for update. Once again, thank you for your support!! Lyn

    Which osC version are you using? Everything other than 2.3.4.1BS Edge/CE/Frozen (see link in signature below) is seriously out of date and shouldn't be used. Is this Realex add-on the 7 year old one? It may not work with the current osC, and may need to be updated, at least to be compatible with the User Interface. A lot of other things may have changed over the last 7 years, too: API to their server, settings, protocols, etc.

    @timswait To what version of osC are you upgrading? The last 'official' v2.3.4 (and v2.3.4.1 hot-patch) version is very much out of date! The osCommerce project was lead by one person that has been absent for quite some time. In his absence, the "community" has continued with the development of osC. Unfortunately, that one missing person is the only one that can make this continued development an 'official' release. The 'Community Edition' (also called osC-CE (for Community Edition), osC-BS (for Bootstrap, the platform it is based on), osC-Edge, osC-Final, and/or osC-Frozen. These are all different names for the same thing) is a big improvement over the last 'official' v2.3.4 release in a number of ways: 1) It is responsive. This means that it will adjust the screen layout depending on the size of the screen of your customer's device. This is very important in this day of mobile devices. The 'official' version is not responsive. 2) It will work with the newer version of PHP, the scripting language used in osC. As more and more hosts upgrade their servers to PHP 7.x, older versions of osC (including the 'official' version) will crash. 3) It is much more modular. This means that you can turn features on or off, change the layout, or even add new features, all without touching the core code. You can find a link to the latest version of the Community Edition in my signature below. Now, having said all of that, there is no 'upgrade path' to the Community Edition. You would install it clean into a separate directory on your server (local or hosted), and migrate your images and data over from the old store. I am not aware of any detailed instructions on how to migrate your data over, as there have been numerous database changes over the years. This will not carry over any mods or customizations you may have done to your original store. You would have to apply these all over again (you did keep notes of what you did to your shop, right?). Fortunately, many of the mods needed in the older versions of osC are now built-in in the Community Edition. Any styling changes will have to be applied again too. If this all sounds too difficult, you can post a RFQ in the commercial support area of the forum to hire someone to do this for you. HTH Malcolm
  12. greetings, any chance of making this appear using the footer area (width) instead of the index one? It would be cool to see it scrooling bellow the left and right boxes aswell.

    -Also language definitions and updating external libraries. What do these mean, are they done by copying the files in?

    Updating process

    I'm trying to work out how installing updates work. I've got a lot of steps to go through, right from v2.3.1 to the latest! I'm reading the release notes that come with the updates and working out how this works. I can see the steps as: -Maybe run some SQL commands on the database - I can do that -Often add files in the required locations - I can do that -Often modify files - does this just mean copy the supplied files into the relevant places to overwrite the old versions? Later in the document it lists the changes to the files, I'm assuming this is just for reference not meaning for me to go in and edit the files? -Often new modules - I take it these are in the files that are copied in and if I want to use these then I need to install them through the admin page? -API changes -I don't know what this means - is this something else that has to be done? Or is it just something that's included in the new files? -Is there anything else I've missed that needs to be done.

    This is a field I use, but it has to have google entered into it for it to trigger. I tested it pretty well, but one of the reasons I'm having it send me an email is so I know when it's being triggered. This way I can look for false positives. At first, I thought about using the company entry to look for Google since only spammers have entered it. I'm also only giving the message stack a generic error message. I got the idea for an email to me from the payment modules that send debug emails. They also are using Jamaica as the country but entering city, states and zip codes. So, a catch looking for Jamaica with a zip code could be used, especially since I don't ship there.

    "False flag" fields are a common tool for spambot detection, but be careful if you use it -- a real customer might enter "N/A" or something else, fearing that it's needed. Some recommend that you make that field and its prompt invisible in some manner, but then it's still "seen" by a screen reader and even a sighted user might tab to it and wonder what's going on. So, like anything else in life, such fields are not foolproof (i.e., they may snag some legitimate customers). Spammers that use real people to do the signup may not be fooled at all.

    $error === false is use with a boolean.

    == and === are two different things. Which did you mean to use? == (and !=) is simple equality (inequality) with type conversion if necessary (0 and false match), while === (and !==) must also have the type match (0 and false do not match).
  21. Ok you can down load both from the apps. Please note these are basic and need editing of the template file to make changes JcM Header Videos addon's CE

    I've had a few of these in the last month with some different names, but they enter Google for company and google for company tax id each time. I know not company tax id isn't stock code, but I added this to block spammers and I can add more to it if I need. Most regular customers don't enter a tax id, but only spammers enter google for it. I also have it send me an email to notify me it's happened so I can track it. //Added to block spammers if (strtolower($company_tax_id) == 'google') { $error = true; $messageStack->add('create_account', "You have triggered spamming prevention rules. If you info is correct and you are not a spammer please contact us or try again."); $spam_email_text = "Spammer Alert: " . $firstname . " " . $lastname . "Using company name: " . $company . " with tax id: " . $company_tax_id . " triggered spam alert."; tep_mail(STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS, 'Spammer Alert:', $spam_email_text, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS); } //END Added to block spammers

    If that's what they are doing, you are spot on as usual Rainer. The ones I've seen on my site were only changing, as I recall, the email address but if everything is being changed I see the problem. Dan
  26. There are no sliders in my header? Those are video header and video carousel. I have not posted those so far but they are available. I take t is these 2 you are referring to.
