    Email queuing system

    Real life feedback/ideas from shopowners lead me to this change; With one extra line of code in the main module I made this a reality, so now it's possible to use the {{TAG}} system in the Title as so: and when received looks like (eg) this: Pretty damned cool!

    Gone over most of this and it works like a charm. Was easy to install simply follow instructions and should have no issues. I simply copied ove my old config and .htaccess files and was able to log into new admin. I kept it simple by renaming my old admin and naming the new one the same as the old so no config changes needed. Not going to post link to admin! so here is a short view of what the new admin looks like. I would recomend taking a look and using it. Oh and you can show your appreciation for the work done by simon by looking at the bottom of his text in the app's market 😊 buy him a beer or 2. Thank's Simon

    Email queuing system

    I've now created a module for order_success to replace the standard order success email that osC sends. If anyone wants to test it: https://template.me.uk/outgoing/ and progress all the way through the checkout. You'll get an email sent by this new system - so PLEASE use a real email address... This system is looking like another game-changer.

    Email queuing system

    We also now have Filtering (for the outgoing Queue). Now easily see individual customers or slugs. As an example, let's say that the Queue has 200 emails in it waiting to go out over the next 3 months. Examples of use; You want to see all "birthday_greetings", select that slug from the dropdown and press go. You want to see all emails that are going out to a particular customer. Select that customer and press go. You want to see all "review_requests" going to a particular customers. Select slug and customer, and press go. This thing is getting better and better...

    "Frozen" is Bootstrap v3. If yours has BS v4, you're using someone else's build. It may or may not work for you, but can't be supported here.

    Don't go around searching for "Frozen" or "CE" and "osCommerce". There are many "responsive" versions around, but the one in my link below (for "Frozen") is more-or-less the "official" Frozen release. Just use that one.

    So first backup and then backup ant then once again backup! Now just to be safe make a copy of your database. phpmyAdmin select your database then go to operations tab and select copy database to ...... you should then have a copy of your db. test any SQL scritp on a copy first. so use this to set product_status on all products with price over or equal to £299 to 0(turned off) update `products` set `products_status` = 0 WHERE `products_price` >= '299'; tested on CE and MySQL - 10.1.38-MariaDB-cll-lve

    You could give it a go by doing as suggested above by jcmagpie => a new admin folder to run alongside your real admin.

    International SEO

    Every time SEO Urls has been metioned I've heard "there's no point on using it nowadays". Well this is a true example of why these are still useful and why oscommerce has a poor localization. If you have a multilingual shop and you want it to be correctly indexed you really, really need a SEO addon that rewrites urls for each language. BTW I've been tweaking the latest versions of SEO urls 5 and there's a glitch with hreflang tags not being correctly shown until session is set - so spiders can¡t see it. I'll fix it and upload again in case someone wants to use it.

    My idea for Blog in osCommerce

    Hi guys! My simple idea for a blog in osCommerce - you need to use only two conditions: - Add one variable to table categories_description - categories_style_type - Add one variable for the products table - products_blog_status Then, in the files: new_products.php, product_listing.php, product_info.php: if ($categories_style_type == '1') { } elseif { ($categories_style_type == '2') } else {} So you can switch between different design for the product and for the blog. Further, the modules in a database query, add: end p.categories_style_type = '1' So you can disable this blog in the product modules. For comparison, look like a different page: - Category product page http://titanium.oscommerce.ru/dlya-muzhchin/obuv - Blog page category http://titanium.oscommerce.ru/blog/2016 - Product page http://titanium.oscommerce.ru/dlya-muzhchin/dzhinsy-kurtki/dzhinsy/3301-dzhinsy-slim - Blog page http://titanium.oscommerce.ru/blog/2016/chem-nosit-palto In this case, it is fully supported by related content. Look, maybe you will like this idea.

    Check all the sort orders and width settings on product info, looks like you have given another item a lower sort order. The layout is just a numbers game!

    Custom HTML box?

    These days it should be more like "Powered by Burt & A Few Others"

    No as the local css is only for the bits that can be changed in admin! ie to overide the main file. The menu is responsive hence width is set to 100% so it will auto change as screen size changes. You can make small changes with padding but setting a fixed width is not recomended. But as always it's your site so you can do what ever you like. min-width works fine on stock code 😊, just make sure you apply it to the right part of the css. Again I do NOT recomend doing this.

    Upgrading to the latest version

    It seems like every other question posted nowadays is about how to upgrade an older version of oscommerce and the op usually references the official version. This post is meant to provide a quick reference for how to convert an older shop to the current, recommended, one. First, the version that should be used is commonly called the Bootstrap, BS or Responsive version. It can be located here. One should not use the official version. The official version can be installed via the hosts control panel so it is easy to think that is the one to use - it is not. Since the BS version is not directly compatible with other versions, the following steps will be needed: Install the BS version into a new location Convert the database. See this thread for help with that. Install whatever addons the site needs. You need to be sure the addon will work with the BS version. This thread mentions specific ones but there are many others that will work. If in doubt, ask in the support thread for the addon in question. If you intend to use paypal, then install the Paypal App. At this point you should have a working shop. Test it thoroughly, especially the payment and shipping modules, before going live with it. When you are ready to go live, Mark your current shop as down for maintenance ( a simple index.html file is fine for this purpose ). Make a backup of the current shops database and files. Convert the database to the BS version. Replace all of the files with the new shops files. Edit the configure files so they work as the live shop. Remove the blocking page. If everything has gone correctly, the conversion should be complete.

    category control in Admin

    Most of the code in Frozen and later uses the category_tree class to display category data etc. So it's now (or should be!) a lot less code to do the job. You'd still need some type of admin interface to turn categories inactive with some type of 0/1 flag as described above. On the shop side, you'd need to amend the class file to not load the categories if flag = 0 (inactive) here: https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/blob/master/includes/classes/category_tree.php#L41 I *think* (in the shop side) I updated most things to use the Category Tree, eg: Category Box: https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/blob/master/includes/modules/boxes/bm_categories.php#L43 Category Descriptions: https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/blob/master/includes/modules/content/index_nested/cm_in_category_description.php#L40 Category Icons: https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/blob/master/includes/modules/content/index_nested/cm_in_category_listing.php#L46 Etc and so on. I may have missed some. Obviously addons may not (probably almost certainly not) be using the category_tree, so those would need attention for your flag, or they would need to be updated to use the category_tree class.

    Improving your stock gallery in osC CE

    I don't think that modifying the core js file of the application is a good idea, also not start using the uncompressed file. The file is like that for a reason and is not meant to be modified in order to change any settings Any options can be passed to the script before it is called in your code. This is the common way for all scripts of this type. That way you can have individual settings for each purpose keeping the core file healthy. can upgrade easily by just replacing the file without having to re-modify etc More info about passing default parameters: http://www.jacklmoore.com/colorbox/faq/#faq-defaults More info general: http://www.jacklmoore.com/colorbox/faq/

    28d 2019, let's move the Project forward...

    28d04 - Qty Input This module displays a Quantity Input on the product_info page. Core Code Changes: NONE. System is 100% modular. If on Gold, you *might* need to update one file to bring it to a more modern standard. Demo: https://template.me.uk/28d2019/product_info.php?products_id=25 Look for the Qty Input next to the Buy Button... Interested: PM Me please as without shopowner support, osC is no more.

    Our thread on Dashboards got me poking around on the web to see what sort of bootstrap dashboards others were using and I came across what I'll refer to as an InfoBar Dashboard. Here is a screen shot of one that I found and really liked. I can see where this type of Dashboard bar could be very useful....it might consist of a collection of similar styled dashboard modules that can be turn on or off depending on what a particular shop ower might find useful. As a proof of concept and to see if my copy and paste coding skills were up to the challenge, I developed the following module. You just install it like you would any other module...no core changes...well almost none...I discovered that bootstrap and font awesome weren't active on the admin side of the shop so I needed to adjust template_top accordingly. What do you think of the idea? Dan
