    28d28 - Ajax Cart Buttons The fourth and final of my more "interesting" mods. This one changes buy buttons to Ajax, so no page reload required when pressing the Buy button. Shop Side HT module Core Code Changes: NONE. System is 100% modular. Upload, and Turn On. If on CE older than Frozen, some changes will be needed to bring it up to scratch. Demo: Any "buy" button, sitewide...

    Email queuing system

    And here's the Slug page, aka email templates... So, just one more thing to do...send out emails at about the right time, and make sure the emails use the merge_vars as shown (anyone who runs Mandrill will understand merge_vars). But in this relatively simple system, assuming an email was going out to Donald Duck, the word {{FNAME}} would be replaced with "Donald". So, next step is to tie it all together and see if the concept works...

    Email queuing system

    These two (especially the reviews one) are game changing for shopowners, in my opinion. I'm trying to make another game-changer based on the ideas in this thread and have gotten it sort of working; In this example, a new customer "Donald Duck" just signed up...he gave his birthday as 10th November 1960; send at (birthday) will go out 21 days prior: 20th October send at (shipping follow up) will go out in 21 days from now send at (request review) will go out 30 days from now That's the basis of this system. I will also create an admin page where shopowner can easily see the email queue and delete/add emails. This is a complicated project, but I have it under control. Any more ideas for emails to go into the Email Queue?

    28d26 - Carousel (with Buttons) It's a carousel (we all know what they are) but this one has buttons so that the person viewing knows what is upcoming ni the next window. Shop Side index content module Admin Side Nothing, uses the core "Banner Manager" system. Core Code Changes: NONE. System is 100% modular. Upload, and Turn On. Demo: https://template.me.uk/28d2019/ Notes: Totally multi-lingual, both the message overlaid on the image and the corresponding button underneath.

    Email queuing system

    I've installed this system on the 28d Demo - and, so far so good. I (as admin) manually inserted an email in the Queue - set for a few days ago - so it would fire off immediately. Here's the Slug: Here's the received Email: TL:DR; The whole system is working as intended! I'll test it a bit more and then get a couple of shopowner to raise their hands for testing...

    The idiot that coded these things...should have done a little more testing. It's definitely shopowners who are the best testers... So, a few bugfixes have just been sent out - mostly very minor. In all cases, just upload the files included to replace the old. Thank You to all who pointed out my mis-steaks 👍

    php 7.2 - updating CE

    I've a little bit of time in hand and it seems like this is the next necessary thing to solve, the use of php7.2. But I need your help to point out any problematic area so that attention can be given to them. To help...you'll need an installation of CE (any flavour that is Frozen or later) running on php 7.2 - with error reporting dialled right up. To set up error_reporting to show everything that is wrong: includes/application_top.php Find: error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_STRICT); Change to: ini_set('display_errors', 1); ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1); error_reporting(E_ALL); admin/includes/application_top.php Find: error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE); if (defined('E_DEPRECATED')) { error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED); } Change to: ini_set('display_errors', 1); ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1); error_reporting(E_ALL); Save both files. Obviously...you DO NOT want to do this on a live shop as it will show errors to your customers, so hopefully a few people have a test shop to play with... Now if you browse your test shop...all warning and errors will appear. Thank you in advance. Please copy/paste the following as a reply: URL: WARNING/ERROR:

    Shipping table is now a real table :)

    Today I decided I got angry for the last time updating a table rate based module. Afer several tryouts to change the shipping rates just to see I had a typo in the values string -damned colons- and having to manually calculate the net prices for each row from the gross that came from the table provided by the courier... I had enough and modified the table rate module to show a real table where you can see what you're doing. Uses some javascript to update net/gross, add or remove rows and do some basic checks. It can be adapted to any other module that uses the same system. Note: The net pice is caclulated based on the tax class from the module. It will apply only to the countries in the module's zone and it's not savet to database but calculated on the fly. For this column to work you need to set up the tax rate first, save and enter the module configuration again. Here is the file: https://apps.oscommerce.com/wyYLv&sgipping-table-module-update @burt you can replace the stock one if you consider it fits the community project.

    Just to clarify. The add-on works fine, the issues were with the self hosted server setup. Once the server issues were sorted out the add-on installed without any issues and works as it should. Now they just need to setup the add-on as they require it.

    Discount code Inc Paypal Express

    Update on above Can confirm that I have done as Rainer suggested, installed modular shopping cart, ship-i-cart reloaded, and discount codes, haven't switched Paypal express on yet but i wouldn't have thought its a issue, all the data is there all is working great, installed on CE, bootstrap 4 with, PHP 7.2.14 couple of css changes to update to BS4, but thats only visual, worked straight out of the box, as I knew nothing about bs4 it was interesting playing with it, probably forget it all tomorrow though the only thing i couldn't work out is why the work Tax or VAT is not written on the estimated order total, but since noticed its also missing further into the check-out so there must be a language file somewhere that i have yet to find, job for another day with fresh eyes Anyway just a vote for the above add on's makes the checkout much better with all that info on one page before checkout continues Regards David

    ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    Update on above The author kindly PM'ed me and gave me a site to check with screaming frog, this was all ok, but it helps a lot to know it was my end He suggested a Cache issue, but i had cleared the cache many times, but with fresh eyes i had discovered that the although the admin was clearing the cache there was still a file left I manually deleted this in FTP and switched over to cache by file rather than sqlite and it appears to have done the trick, just finished a crawl and the issue has gone away will keep an eye on the reset USU5 Cache to ensure it does actually do as it should, maybe the cache file was corrupted, but this version is running well hope this helps someone regards

    osC CE BS4 running on PHP 7.3

    So running for a few hours now and doing some basic testing and browsing on the site it's stable and working fine, also apperes to run a smoother than before! I know this is very subjective but it defnitly feels a little quicker. Checking the bench mark numbers reported PHP 7.3 is supposed to give about 10% overall improvment over PHP 7.2

    If you never set this add-on up in your admin then it's not to blame for your issues! I would imagin that in the 2 or 3 times you have installed other seo add-ons you have managed to mess up your redirects. I would recomend restoring your test site from your last known working backup.

    28d25 - PDF (per order) Today we have a system that allows Shopowner to attach (an already made by you) PDF to each Order Shop Side account content module hook Core Code Changes: NONE. System is 100% modular. Upload, and Turn On. Demo: None as admin side and account (must be logged in), but here's some images; Admin Side: There is no PDF attached to this Order, so an upload form shows. A PDF has been attached to this Order, on upload it gets renamed to a random name. In the Shop Side, each Order that has a PDF will show like this, which is a link to the PDf to allow to view/save by the Customer. Enjoy!

    Bootstrap 4 in

    Bootstrap 3 will be around for years - no point overthinking that, so forget it. The main "problem" will be upgrade php. Some people say php7.2 is working fine, others report it is not working fine. At the end of the 28d, dependant on support thereof, I hope to have gotten enough time in hand to get the following done and complete; make sure shop and admin are ready for 7.2 (at the very least, possibly 7.3 if I can swing it) -> no warnings and no errors product class -> rework relevant modules to use it But as with all things, one step at a time, and right now that step is trying to get some time in hand to actually do "stuff".
