  1. There are two scenario's: 1) you add the break tags when you insert into the database 2) you add the break tags on product_info.php Option 2 will probably be the easiest; use the nl2br() function to echo the products description.

    PayPal module question/problem

    Not sure of your first question, but yes, the Paypal IPN does prevent your scenario - that I am sure of. Kind regards Matthijs

    advice of payment modules

    You should investigate what you need, we can't decide for you. Their rates and availability differ per country of origin and also per monthly turnover, or even goods being sold.
  4. 1) have a table containing all the possible zips and their location (degrees?) 2) add extra field to products table containing the zip id from table above 3) modify the shipping module to calculate differences between clients zip (taken from the zips table) and products zip.
  5. There should be an INSTALL text ...? There is in my version - I am sure of that, perhaps not in an update - try a lower version number. @ John - yes indeed, a lot of stuff happened recently which has prevented me from further working on the new version. Tommorrow Mark and myself will leave for Germany so I think it's safe to say it will be at least another week before I even get the chance to look at the code again. But once finished I promise it will be nice, clean and easy to install :D Regards Matthijs
  6. I've decided the mainpage contribution has it's drawbacks (ie no preview, hassle with files etc) so I have started on a new improved version which is a complete re-write (or actually define_mainpage is a cheap hack :) ) The new version will be database based. That will allow me to do previews and will be a lot easier when you add a language. Since it's a somewhat bigger jobbie it will not be finished tonight but hopefully later this week - I have 20% done right now. Regards Mattice
  7. 6 Apr 2002 was the last version I did - its been a while since I looked at it, but from memory it was a very MINOR change because I used a function in the example text that was no longer available in MS2 - and a text typo (not code) That was it. By the looks of it (all due respect) things haven't improved with the most recent upgrades - I've recently got quite some e-mail requests over it. New version is still on my to do list (also because of the improperly starting PHP tag) but I haven't gotten around to do it. If you look at what I did in version 1 you should be able to figure it out with a crisp define_languages.php from MS2 - it's not complicated at all. If I find the time today I will create an update. Regards Mattice
  8. Does your regular define LANGUAGES work? Its a strange error - I can't see anything really obvious. And did you change the index.php to actually echo the changes? (As described in the text file - think its still called default.php there) Mattice
  9. Does it do it on other languages too?

    Cant find "hide product images"

    Most modern browsers ( Firefox is a good one http://www.mozilla.org ) will have the option to load a site without images. If you know you're users it might be a good alternative. Or they could start surfing with Lynx... ;) You can't really distinguish these users untill they are logged in. Once they are you could, based on that, give them an alternative tep_image() function, one that doesn;t actually display output. HTH Mattice

    Problem with payment method

    Did you test it manually? Don't want to stress you but if you don't receive the card numbers and haven't changed the code I would seriously investigate as someone might have circumvented the server (ie hacked you) :(

    Looking for contribution

    I don't think there is any existing contribution that could serve as a base for that. The attributes are too cumbersome IMO so I would code something from scratch. Dropping it in the cart as a single product shouldn't be too much of a problem, you basically update the description / price in the order table instead of adding it. As for the limitation on ordering the samples - you can never be 100% sure, customers can always register under another name and re-order samples. Regards, Mattice

    Seperate Pricing Per Customer v3.5

    Seems to be your TABLE_PRODUCTS_GROUPS is not defined in the database table defines... so mySQL can't find it. Adding a define('TABLE_PRODUCTS_GROUPS', 'whateverthenameis'); should fix it. Mattice
