    Ultrapics + Lightbox 2.03.3

    Hi All, I can no longer add any support to this thread. It's not because I don't want to, but because we made a major business decision to go with another cart software... ZenCart, a code branch of OSC. That brings with it a whole different set of challenges that are different than OSC. While we have loved OSC, and will miss the many excellent contributions others have put out to the community, the move has made it impossible for me to review others' work. In addition, we have abandoned the lightbox concept for the slimbox from mootools (lighter js download for faster page loads). I would have liked to have seen the future of OSC with 3.0, and hope that many others carry on in the spirit of community-based development. Either way, we are committed to the concept of OpenSource, and love sharing what we have developed with others, as they have so freely done with us. Feel free to email me if you wish to ask me any questions, and maybe I can help. My hope is that someone else will take up the charge of implementing this option better than I have. good luck all, and god bless! Albert Savage

    Mike, not sure I understand your question. the lightbox that was added just replaces the popup. If you're uninstalling ultrapics, then you'll need to revert to earlier files. If you overwrote them, I'm not sure how to help on that. You could always go back through the installation instructions one by one and replace the text with the original. The SQL scripts are really just to add 2 things: configuration options, and add fields to tables. Neither of those should hurt you as they should only add to the database, not subtract from it or modify it.

    Problem with my Product Listing Page!

    Whoa Andy, 1. Use a codebox when posting files. 2. If your problem is the product info page, it appears you pasted the index.php. You'll want to past the product_info.php file. Please edit your original post if you can. it's a pain to look through.

    Look at this entry: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?s=&...t&p=1163084 Use the first file definition for all 6 in one column. You can place the column through the require additional_images.php statement by your first image. See this post: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?s=&...t&p=1160494

    Fannu, if you want me to look at your file, please use a codebox. I can then use a file compare program and see where yours is different from mine. As it is, the leading spaces in your file do not come through and I am left scratching my head. First off, the assumption that my change assumes is that Ultrapics is already running on your shop. If Ultrapics is not running, it won't help to change mine. Secondly, my modification only touches 2 existing files and does so nonintrusively. The error that you're experiencing appears in a totally different part of the file, so I can't really shed any light on it at this time.

    1. Was your Ultrapics working correctly before that? 2. Did you follow the instructions as written? We don't even touch the compatability.php file mentioned, so I wonder whether that was working right in the first place. Give a little more explanation as to what you did. BTW, there is no change in the ADMIN section. It isnt' any kind of mod that changes admin.

    ok Belinda, You're going to be happy with this, as I took time out to work through it and test the solution. Keep in mind, this is a hack, and not for everyone, only those who want to do what you want to do... There are 6 things that need to be replaced with 1 in your additional_images.php file Find the following: ULT_THUMB_IMAGE_WIDTH ULT_THUMB_IMAGE_HEIGHT $image_width $image_height LARGE_IMAGE_WIDTH LARGE_IMAGE_HEIGHT and replace them all with 1. There should be 6 instances of each of them. Keep a backup of your file before changing them. This will make the pictures 1 pixel by 1 pixel. I found out you can't use 0. Even tested that. Like I said, I tested it on my test site, so that should do what you want it to do.

    First thing's first... use a codebox when posting your code. It makes it easier to copy and review your code, as well as makes sure there are no errors when I post it back to you. I think that what you're trying to do is make the additional thumbs disappear, right? I'm not sure exactly how all of the variables work, but you could try this as a code hack: Replace all "ULT_THUMB_IMAGE_WIDTH" with "1" and replace all "ULT_THUMB_IMAGE_HEIGHT" with "1" as well. Essentially, I think that should make your thumbs near to nothing. I'm not sure what would happen if you replaced it with 0, but that might be worth it as well... no spaces or anything, just hidden pictures. What you were doing was good because it helps the page load faster, but the admin controls the display of the small pictures on the page to whatever the admin size is. Alternatively to changing to code (a hack), you could try changing the size in admin (image sizes), but I'm not sure where else these might be used. There's more than one way to skin this cat for sure. What you're trying to do changes the dynamics a little bit, but it's a neat idea. I looked at it and it worked well, just there's all of that dead space as you said. OK, since I wrote this, I would try things in this order: 1. Change it in admin to see how it impacts your site. I think this is the "additional thumb width" and "additional thumb height" options. (I'm worried this also impacts the first image, but hopefully not), so proceed to #2 if it doesn't work. 2. Hack the file and replace with 0's. 3. Hack the file and replace with 1's. There are several variants on this approach, I just listed the most straightforward. There are literally about 10 different ways you could use admin/hack to get it to be right. Good luck

    Hello All who read this: I installed this on my shop. It works fantastic... thanks Vger. Except for one small issue. And, I know this issue has been beat more times than a dead horse on this. I would love for someone to come out with a coherent fix for this problem... it's the dreaded declined transaction appearing in the URL. Basically, when a customer's card is declined, they are returned to the checkout_payment page (from the checkout_confirmation page) with no clue as to what has happened other than the URL has some fairly cryptic response (which it appears is controlled by the text file). I'm not a pro at this, but I don't really consider myself a noob. There was an equally cryptic addition to the contribution back in July of this year. The entire contribution says: When the transaction is declined the error is displayed on the address bar. So this is a minor fix to show the customer what a message if the card is declined. include this code below: //for example I placed it under <?php echo TABLE_HEADING_PAYMENT_METHOD; ?> <?php $ccnotif = $_GET["error_message"]; ?> <div style="color:#FF0000; font-weight:bold; font-style:italic "> <?php echo $ccnotif; ?></div> Can someone please confirm if this is to go into the checkout_payment.php file? I tried it (among other things) some time ago, and couldn't get it to execute properly. Has anyone else accomplished this and gotten it to actually work. Like I said... the contribution is great except for this weakness. This means that some of my customers put in the credit card information again and again and just rack up my declines. It's a major nuisance for those who simply need to change to a new card and resubmit. Everything to make paying customers happy, right? Please, if anyone here can shed light on the subject in a coherent manner, please do. Thanks in advance

    Belinda, What you want to do is actually in the additional_images.php file if I understand you correctly. In that file there are 6 instances of: . tep_image_button('image_enlarge.gif', TEXT_CLICK_TO_ENLARGE) Delete those 6 instances (and as always keep a backup of your original file), and you should see those click to enlarge pictures disappear. You can also get rid of the preceding BR tags if there is too much space being taken up.

    Sounds like an HTML problem... you should look at the source in IE7 and find out what is on line 10, char 108 and fix that. If you had a site, I'd take a look at it when I had a moment.

    Only payment/shipping method available

    /catalog/includes/languages/english/checkout_payment.php or find TEXT_ENTER_PAYMENT_INFORMATION in catalog/checkout_payment.php and remove the if/include statement Same can be done with the checkout_shipping.php files in either location.

    well, I'm the father... my wife is the one with the hard job. Unfortunately, no trips to Beijing are in the cards. Thanks for the invite. I haven't used STS. Personally, I wanted pages that look differently (product page only has 2 columns, while other pages have 3, etc) We considered STS at one point, as well as perhaps having a professionally developed site may be in the cards in the future. We have heavily modified our OSC site at this point with all of the contributions, so our next step would be a big one. Let me know how you like STS. I created a secure testsite using the method you describe (copying folders and changing configure files). Just keep in mind that if you use fixed file references (www.yoursite.com/catalog/etc), you need to remember those if you make a copy, as opposed to a referenced location (../catalog/etc). Thanks for the compliments to the site. It's not perfect, but nothing ever is.

    Jason, First thing: this is related to your product_info.php file not having title defined properly in each of the possible locations. Post your file up here if you can't figure out where it should be. Second thing: I don't use products_review.php ... I have disabled people from putting in reviews. It'd be great if you'd like to post a solution to it if you get it figured out. I personally have no desire to do it. Might be different if someone paid me. I have a motivation problem when doing it for free.
