  1. Thanks madcrazygirl! I installed the Discount Coupons contribution and it works beautifully. I hadn't realised it offered discount coupons for shipping. :D Just to make it easier for anyone else to find the Discount Coupon contribution is found here
  2. Hi, I have had a look through the contributions and I can't seem to see one that will do what I want. I need to be able to offer my local customers free shipping with out disabling my Australian Shipping module. What I was hoping to do was find a contribution that allowed you to turn the shipping charge off for particular accounts. I would settle for giving them coupons for free shipping but couldn't find a contribution that would do this either. Can anyone help me?

    Shipping Cost By Zip Codes

    Hi Guys, I'd just like to say that this contribution is a life saver. I'm just wondering if someone can help me 'tweak' it so that it suits my purposes. I'm using it as a way to offer local delivery to select areas and basically I would like to change three things: 1. When the zipcode is not in one of the zones the module just doesn't show up as an option, if this is not possible at least just have it come up saying "Local delivery is not available in your area" instead of having errors and warnings show up everywhere. 2. Zone 1 has free shipping at the moment a message comes up saying that the delivery hasn't been able to be worked out which makes it sound as though I might sting these customers with an undisclosed shipping fee, can it just say shipping is free to your area or something. 3. I would like to change it so that it says "Local Delivery" instead of "Zipcode" I'm sure that's easy to do just haven't worked out where yet. Before installing Osc I've never worked with php before so I really don't know what I'm doing any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks, Carol
  4. Thanks Jack, I fixed my admin/categories file and now everything is working perfectly :D
  5. Hi Jack, Sorry, I don't seem to be receiving e-mail notifcations about this topic and I thought no-one had replied. I'm referring to my admin section. The Header Tags option is on the tool bar with the page control, text control, fill tags however when you go into the catalog and look at the catagories and products there are no extra fields in there. I can't work out what I've done wrong. Carol
  6. Hi, I'm hoping someone out there might be able to help figure out what I've done wrong. I had this contribution working perfectly on my previous installation but since I've moved my site to the root directory I haven't been able to get it working. I have the header tag file show up in my admin section, but nothing in my catergories or products (new or old) even after trying the auto fill option. I can't work out what I've missed. I don't know it will help if you look at My Webpage but please feel free. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. :-) Carol

    Held Orders v2.0 MS2 ready

    Thanks Jack, that's fixed it :D
  8. Hi I have just installed the Held Orders v2.0 MS2 ready contribution along with the fixes recommended for it. When I log into my admin I have the following error show up: Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong, and how I can fix it? If you need more information please ask me!
  9. Thanks again Jack, I installed the Header Tags Controller v2.5.9 and it is working beautifully. :D
  10. Thanks Jack, I'll look into the Header Tags Controller contrib. The contribution I installed was the latest version of that contrib - I didn't know to look for contribs from after July of 2003 so that was really helpful to know. I do look for support threads before I post (found that out early on :) ). Thanks for your help!
  11. Hi, I have been trying to install a category description contribution without any success. So far I have installed the Unique Category Descriptions v1.2, followed the instructions for installation, and nothing has changed on my website. The only thing I can think is that I haven't created the directories properly. Being a complete newbie what I have done is basically ftped a folder called 'Desriptions' into the location specified in the instructions, then I used notebook to create a file saved it as my category name.php and ftped that into the folder. I went through my osc admin file manager to add text to the file and used basic html. According to the installation instructions the paragraph is supposed to appear in the category but nothing is showing up in mine. I have also tried installing Category Descriptions v1.1. Now the issue I have there is that some of the code I'm supposed to change in /admin/categories.php I can't find and I'm supposed to change things in /catalog/default.php which as far as I can see doesn't exist on my directory. Needless to say I haven't even been able to get through the installation process so I don't know if this contribution works on my site. If anyone can give me advice on how to get one of these category description contributions working it would be very much appreciated!!!

    Australia Post module

    I enter my prices the same way. To be completely honest I'm starting to think there isn't any way the aust shipping module has caused these problems. I have other problems with my site that no-one can help me with so I'm about to unistall OSC and start again from scratch. I'll PM you and let you know whether I get the same problem next time I install Auspost!

    Australia Post module

    Tax is showing in admin - although I just noticed it's calculating weird amounts. Just in the website catalog it's not showing up (or being added at checkout).

    Australia Post module

    Hi Leslie, When I first went back into the tax area (because all items in my catalog were showing without tax for australian customers) I did see that the australian zone had been removed. However when I checked in tax zones there was an Australian zone set up: zone name: Australian zones, description: all local zones. There was also a World tax zone set up: zone name: World zones, description: all internation zones. When I went into tax rates only the World zone had been set up so I put in the Australian zone tax rate and my problem disappeared. The issue now is any new products I enter don't show up tax. Do I need to set up the Australian zone, tax zone and tax rate from the beginning, and if so will I need to do that for the 'World zones' as well? Thanks in advance, :D Carol

    Australia Post module

    Since installing the Auspost shipping module any new products I've added to my catalog show up on my site excluding tax. Is that a coincidence or has the shipping module changed something.
