  1. Seems like there have been many updates to the contrib since I last looked. Hopefully someone will pick up the support of this thread.
  2. Hi there, I'm really sorry but I've been taken away from osCommerce by other projects. I don't use osCommerce any longer since my last osCommerce client project folded. If anyone is interested, I'm now using Drupal (CMS) and Ubercart (ecommerce module for Drupal, highly recommended), Google it since I don't think I'm allowed to post links to competing projects on these forums. I'd be grateful if someone would take over the maintenance and support of this contribution.
  3. What you describe is not possible with the contrib in it's current state. You would need to add the functionality yourself or bribe/convince someone else to do it for you. You could use a batch image tool to resize the images to your intermediate size and then provide a link to the full sized image in the description.

    Category Discount

    Does anyone know if there is a way to modify this contribution to give the cheapest item for free rather than averaging the total of the items and subtracting that? This seems to be the most common use of this type of discount (in the UK at least) and it would be better for the shop owner too.
  5. Is GD available on your server?

    Full Catalog Backup

    I don't seem to be able to find any info on the error codes. I wish there was more I could do. I've reverted to making a manual backup using gzip by logging in to my server using ssh. If you have ssh and you have shell access you can make a backup like so: ssh example.com -l user@example.com cd /path/to/oscommerce/ tar cvpzf backup.tar.gz . This will make an archive of your oscommerce installation which you can then transfer using ftp or scp. I will be thinking of a better solution over the next few weeks and if I come up with anything I'll post here.
  7. Can anyone confirm this please?
  8. Check your settings in configure.php
  9. Hi phpsurfer, Do you mean the installation was easy?

    Full Catalog Backup

    Well, I've been having some problems with error code 2 recently. I'll post back when I find out why.
  11. It is often the case that templates are not what one expects when they buy them as the creators usually don't care about the ramifications of their modifications on the stability of the system after you have made your purchase. I'm glad you managed to find the problem and now have a working site.
  12. I hope this is not still a problem for you. If it is this is most likely something to do with your configure.php files having the wrong settings for your database.
  13. I can't see how this contribution would cause the symptoms you are experiencing. Maybe you have installed another contribution or messed up your site some other way. I doubt that it would be anything to do with this contrib.
  14. Your settings should only contain /catalog/ if you've got your site in a sub-directory named catalog.
  15. Please feel free to update the contribution.
  16. There are a couple of contributions for this. Please see the contribs section.
  17. Is this still an issue? As this contribution will resample your images it's best to keep high quality originals as the additional processing done by the compression will further deteriorate your images. Try it with higher quality images if it's still a problem.

    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    I've installed osCommerce PayPal IPN Module v2.2 For 2.2MS2 by Terra which seemed to be the latest full release. Everything is working apart from order emails are not sent out and the order status remains at Preparing [PayPal IPN] forever. Is this a common problem?

    PayPal Express Checkout IPN Payment Module

    This was all due to working on localhost. Anyone having problems with this contribution when trying to test it on localhost should try it on their hosted server. Alex: Sorry for the hassle.

    PayPal Express Checkout IPN Payment Module

    I have never had a problem with sessions before until now. Is there anything specific I should be looking at to fix this problem with the 'PAY' button? Well, I did mean that I was going to try another paypal contribution but I guess I'll leave things as they are for now and install them on a fresh installation. The contribution is working apart from the session problem at the end of checkout. Thanks for all your efforts creating this contribution. I hope I can manage to get it working.

    PayPal Express Checkout IPN Payment Module

    I just tried the diagnostics script and everything is green.

    PayPal Express Checkout IPN Payment Module

    I'm talking about: I found it fairly easy to install this contribution by adding the code between the comments in those files. I don't know if there were any other modifications that were not commented. As I had changed my layout quite a bit I had to convert the added files to match my layout. This was not too much of a problem to put me off. I think there should also be some step-by-step instructions as are found with most other contributions. I think it would make it easier for people who may not be used to using a file comparison program. Have you managed to test this contribution on localhost? I can't seem to get it to work. I receive the dumps by email which say 'success' but I don't get an order because the big blue button redirects to the login.php page. Why would this happen? Since only two files were modified (not including filenames.php) and since I made a backup of these files and I turned off this module in the admin, do you think it would be fine to rename the newly modified versions of these files and replace them with the backups, then if I find a way to make this contribution work I can just switch the files again and everything should be back? I need to check out that diagnostic script I guess.

    PayPal Express Checkout IPN Payment Module

    I've just installed this contribution and when I click the massive blue 'pay' button it redirects to the login page. There are no install instructions with this contribution so there is really no way to check if I have done everything correctly as using a file-merge program is pretty hard when you have a 9 month old code base with literally hundreds of contributions installed. I don't really care for the 'express checkout' part of this contribution but I seem to remember that paypal insist that merchants show it as a payment option. I think I'm going to uninstall this, try some others and if they are worse come back to this one. This seems to work fine apart from the redirect on the pay button. Maybe I need to use the same email address at paypal as I am using to create the account in oscommerce? Regards, Richard

    Full Catalog Backup

    That would be very easy. You could have a set of radio buttons to choose which type of archive you wish to create and add the z flag to the command and .gz to the end of the extension when gzip is selected. It would also be easy enough to make this work with zip too. Maybe even detect which are available in the system and only show options to select from the available compression types. Anyway, it's past my bedtime.
