    RSS Feed contribution support thread

    Hi Greg, Can you verify the file that this code is found in? Is it catalog/rss.php? Also, is this necessary if I am not using the Ultimate SEO contrib? I'm using SEO-G. Thanks for any clarification you may be able to provide.
  2. I see it's been awhile since anyone has been on this thread, but maybe someone can offer me a solution. I've installed this successfully and it's working great except that the "Shop by Price" infobox has the title "Manufacturers" instead of "Shop by Price". I've tried to change the title to no avail. I do have many contribs installed too. Could something be interferring? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Here's the site http://derbydogma.com

    [Contribution] SEO-G

    Mark, I just installed your awesome contrib! Thank you so much for such a great contrib and also for such detailed and informative instructions. Simply awesome! After installing I just have a couple questions regarding the XML Sitemap part of this. so I understand that the urls are created progressivly so I checked the xml file and see that the only urls in it are of urls that have been visited. I use another sitemap contrib, so I'm wondering... 1. When I run my other sitemap generator, should it pick up the new (html) urls? 2. Is the only way to verify that the sitemap portion of this contrib picks up all my urls is for me to visit each one (to initially create them)? 3. Is there a way to run the sitemap portion while at the same time having it generate the new urls? It's like you have two contribs in one and that is great, I certainly don't mind putting in the work to manually visit all the categories and products (over 2000). Thanks again for such a great contrib...you will be seeing a donation from me! Adam

    Paypal Order Did Not Register

    This is a common problem with the standard PayPal module included with osC. Basically, the products in the cart are not added to your osC database until the customer hits the "Return to Merchant" button after making the payment at PayPal. If they do not hit that button, you will receive notice of payment from PayPal, but you will not receive the actual order in your osC Admin area. I speak from first hand experience;) There are a couple work-arounds, but the best so far is the PayPal IPN module. This basically puts the order in your database BEFORE the customer makes a payment. It puts it in a kind of "order holding area" in your Admin. Once the user finishes payment at PayPal, your order details are updated in your cart to the normal "Pending" status. The contrib is here and is one of the easier ones to install. The one to install is by Terra, dated Jan. 14, 2007 (for my needs anyway) I highly recommend reading through the install directions a couple times before installing, and if you use GoDaddy as your host (like I do), pay attention to the special instructions for GoDaddy. ...and always remember...BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP....before installing any contributions! I have really screwed things up while installing various contribs, but my backups have saved me! p.s. I am a lover of rare records, great concept for a site. If you need help, PM me.

    RSS Feed contribution support thread

    Problem solved, I feel so stupid:) I had inadvertantly overwritten the admin/includes/languages/english.php with this same file in the other includes directory...catalog/includes/languages/english.php. Luckily, I had a backup of this file, and everything seems to be ok now:) Thanks for your attention to this thread.

    RSS Feed contribution support thread

    The problem still exists for me. After having a chance to investigate, it looks like I had added some code to catalog/admin/includes/languages/english.php when it was supposed to be added to catalog/includes/languages/english.php in step 3. of the install instructions. STEP 3 ------------- Open catalog/includes/languages/yourlanguagehere.php (e.g. english.php) file: ###Add before / above the last ?> tag: define('BOX_INFORMATION_RSS', 'Catalog Feed'); ###Find: define('IMAGE_BUTTON_IN_CART', 'Add to Cart'); ###Add under it: define('IMAGE_BUTTON_MORE_INFO', 'More information'); I thought maybe this was causing the issue, but I have corrected this and the problem in the above screenshots still exists. I am continuing to try and go through the instructions again. If anyone has any further thoughts on what area of code and possibly what file is screwed up, I would be most appreciative:)

    Thanks phi148, It looks like some code in that file is missing from as compared to a backup I have from last month. I have the most recent backup on another computer, so I should be able to get it fixed within the next few days. Thanks for directing me on where to look:)

    Would anyone here be kind enough to share why this might be happening? I would really like to use this contribution:)

    RSS Feed contribution support thread

    Hi everybody, I've just installed this contribution and have run into what I "think" is just a small error on my part. When I am in the Admin area, the words "BOX_HEADING" are in front of everything. Here's a screenshot... Could someone clue me in on where I might have made a mistake? I am guessing it's on the catalog/admin/categories.php? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated:)

    Changing return To Merchant Link on Paypal

    Thanks Douglas, That's very helpful information. I will most likely apply the pending email solution. After making a few changes including a notice to customers on the checkout page, we've had two more orders, both of which were successful. Thanks for your help!

    Changing return To Merchant Link on Paypal

    Just wonder if you've been able to figure out where to change this code. We had our very first order today and had to jump through some hoops to figure out what was ordered. I've been reading a lot about the various "solutions" and your PayPal communication seems viable. It would be great to be able to replace that "return to merchant" link with a logo image of our store saying "return to our store" or something similar. I'll be following this thread in the hope that some help will be coming on where and how to pass the "cbt" variable and replace this link with an image. Fingers crossed:)
  15. Hi Jack, thanks, I will try installing on a fresh install. However, I cannot seem to find a setting in Configuration-->Links to turn off the redirect option. Could you guide me to that?
  16. Jack, thank you for your continued attention. Here's a layout of the issues I'm having: LINK SUBMISSIONS FROM MY SITE The link submission process returns the error "Our link cannot be found on"...whatever website I put it on. I have tried four of my own sites. CHECK LINK IN ADMIN RETURNS ERROR I have 6 links set up and when I hit the "Check Link" button, every one returns this error "Link Check Result: Error Reading URL" LINK EXCHANGE SERVICE ERRORS I have signed up with a couple free link exchange services to see how they work. When I put a link from there on my links.php page using the Links Manager and then accept a link from the service, the perform a check to see if their link is on the page I said it was. Both services have failed to find their link. The page I point them too is http://mysite.com/links.php or http://mysite.com/links.php?lPath=4. I have tried both. In both instances, the services fail to find their link. The address above with the redirect seems to be a problem with at least one service as they specifically state... So, it appears I may have a couple of different issues here (or maybe they're related?). If the redirect issue is a no no with this link exchange, I would assume that this is across the board with other services too. That's just my assumption though, and you know what they say about assuming;) If you could shed any light on the redirect subject and how that affects the usefulness of the Links Manager contrib, I would be very grateful. I just want to know if continuing with this is worthwhile. I hope there are solutions to these issues as I believe having links would help bring visitors. If you can help further, that would be great. I know you're a busy guy on here;)
  17. I have tried with another site of mine and have run into the same error. "Our link cannot be found on http://blahblah" even though it does exist. So I turned off the requirement for a recipricol link and the link submission from the site went through. However, when in Admin-->Links Manager--->Links, I click on the "Check Link" button and an error is returned that says "Error reading URL". If it makes a difference, the two other site are Wordpress powered and in .php I would rather not allow non-recipricol link submissions I think that would kind of defeat one of the reasons for having a links section. I will go through the installation and re-check everything (again), but I sure would like to know what's causing this to happen. Any further assistance is greatly appreciated. Adam
  18. The check phrase is currently set to "derbydogma.com". I would assume then that it is searching for the link that contains this phrase? Could this mean that I am searching for a phrase like, pets, pet health, etc? Things that are relevant to my site? I apologize about my confusion.
  19. Thanks Jack, I've taken a look and it makes sense. I do have a small problem though, that maybe you can shed some light on? I have entered information on the links submit page and I cannot get away from the error message. I have put a link to my store on the above site, but I keep getting this error when I submit. The other website is here. The link to my store is listed under "Favorite Sites" in the middle column. Would you be able to offer any thoughts on why it is not finding the link? I'm not sure how the Links contrib checks for links when submitted, so I'm a little lost. Thanks for any assistance you can provide. Adam
  20. Jack, Thank you, you're right. I was confusing the two. I was expecting a "links" infobox to show on my main pages in the left column. I typed the links page in manually and it works great. I guess I have to just put a link to the links page somewhere on my shop then?
  21. Hi all, I have successfully installed Links Manager and everything is working as expected in Admin, however, I can't seem to get the actual Links Infobox to display in either the column_left or column_right. I know this is probably a simple problem, but I haven't yet figured it out (even after reuploading the files in the hope that I missed one.) I have added this code to both column_left and column_right independently with no success. // VJ Links Manager v1.00 begin require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'links.php'); // VJ Links Manager v1.00 end I have also verified that links.php exists on my server in the right location. Can anyone offer some guidance on what I might check to get further? Thanks, Adam

    New UPS XML Shipping Module available

    GoDaddy requires some additional cURL code. Do this... Go to catalog/includes/modules/shipping/upsxml.php. Look on the page about 3/4 of the way toward the end for this chunk of code... } else { // default behavior: cURL is assumed to be compiled in PHP $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url); // uncomment the next line if you get curl error 60: error setting certificate verify locations //curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0); // uncommenting the next line is most likely not necessary in case of error 60 // curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $xmlRequest); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, (int)$timeout);....etc..etc... Then add this code after the above.... //ADDED THIS CURL BECAUSE OF GODADDY ERROR curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPPROXYTUNNEL, TRUE); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_PROXYTYPE, CURLPROXY_HTTP); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY, "http://proxy.shr.secureserver.net:3128"); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE); That solved it for me.
