    Multi_Vendor_Shipping new thread

    I just looked and could only find it in one file, which matches what I remember when I installed it. At the time, I just figured it was something I had done wrong or was conflicting with another contribution or hack I had made. When you extract the roll up, it is in this file: mvs_0.9RC4.1/catalog/admin/vendors.php I count 9 instances.

    Multi_Vendor_Shipping new thread

    After I installed this, I was getting an error somewhere about 'num_tables', too. It was caused when I installed the rollup version of this contribution. I just found where it was mentioned in the code and removed it. It's been a few weeks, but when I looked into it at the time, it looked like the error was related to a "Geo-something" contribution that I had never installed; like somewhow the code got included in the rollup. So gr8sale's not crazy.

    Multi_Vendor_Shipping new thread

    Fist of all, big thanks to everyone involved in this contribution. I had a specific need for a client and this met that need and more! Thanks HallMarc for wrapping up all the recent changes in a nice package with specific file changes; I'm beyond the point of being able to install big contributions unless they include the specific file changes. Next, to anyone reading this, don't believe my post until someone can confirm it, lol; I've been looking at PHP so long today that it wouldn't surprise me if I'm just seeing things. The issue: I went straight from installing the rollup to the change you just added. In your post above your second change doesn't match what I have. From the instructions in the rollup: =================== Find Lines 64 & 65 =================== // load the selected shipping module require(DIR_WS_CLASSES . 'shipping.php'); ============= Replace With ============= //MVS start // load the selected shipping module if (SELECT_VENDOR_SHIPPING == 'true') { include(DIR_WS_CLASSES . 'vendor_shipping.php'); } else { include(DIR_WS_CLASSES . 'shipping.php'); } //MVS End But your change above suggests I should have this upon completion of the rollup: //MVS start // load the selected shipping module if (($total_weight > 0 ) || (SELECT_VENDOR_SHIPPING == 'true')){ include(DIR_WS_CLASSES . 'vendor_shipping.php'); } else { if ($total_weight > 0 ){ include(DIR_WS_CLASSES . 'shipping.php'); } else { } } //MVS End And why the empty "else" at the end? Anyway, if someone could confirm the type-o or point me in the right direction as to where I went wrong, I'd appreciate it. Thanks again!

    how do I change the homepage to my content?

    Lou, this question has been asked and answered thousands of times here, but I know how it is to feel overwhelmed and just looking for someone to give me a push. You'll need to change catalog/includes/languages/english/index.php . Look for the section that looks like: define('TEXT_MAIN', '***default text here***, yak yak yak'); and replace the BS i used with what you want to be said. Remember, osCommerce has been downloaded and installed tens of thousands of times. I doubt there has been a single "new" problem in the past year, so search the forums and Google to find the answer to your questions, it will save you a lot of time. Good luck!

    Manual entry of Meta tags

    There is not really an easy way to insert static meta tags into your pages. There are some contributions that can help create dynamic meta tags. Search the contributions for "meta" and you'll see some contributions that should point you in the right direction. Good luck!

    Very nice contribution. I installed this about an hour ago and already it is the most popular way for users to navigate my site. Thanks!

    [Contribution] AmazonAffiliate

    On my drive to work this morning, I figured out what was stumping me last night when I posted 1.0 to the contribution section, so I got to work and spent company time working on this thing. 1.1 has two diffrent views to use. Thanks to Francisco Burzi of PHPNuke, in general and specifically for his block-Amazon script that I used for this addon.
  9. I just submitted my first contribution. See it at: http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1499 It basically lets you put your amazon.com affiliate advertisement inside a box on your site. This is an extremely simple addon that I made because I wanted the affiliate link to "gel" better with my site and I couldn't find where anyone else had submitted it. This box has been tested with MS1 and MS2 with no problems, and it is simple enough that I can't imagine it not working with any recent or near-future osCommerce versions. The inspiration came from a stock PHPNuke block by Francisco Burzi that modified the basic amazon ad into a really nice looking Nuke block. I was unable to recreate the functionality that the original had, but I guess it was a step in the right direction. My hope is that a real programmer will take over and crank out something better. I put the Nuke block in the contribution download so someone can try to use that as a base to make something better. The install is very simple and clean. If anybody ever gives it a shot post your comments here.
  10. First of all, great contribution! The interface is very professional and the install was very straight forward. That said I have a problem... Thanks, :D now is better but not show the flag name:http://ponto/solis/admin/images/flags/.gif Are your flag images uploaded to /admin/images/flags ? Well, I had a long post typed up and I just deleted it because I think I know what the problem is. Like the guy above me, I had flags/ defined right below images/, I had the flags uploaded properly, and I had the GeoIP uploaded propperly. But I was getting a red X where the flag should be and no text for the country. I was the only traffic on the site (it's not live yet) and it wasn't registering a nationalality for me. I got ahold of a friend and had him go to the site and click around a little and I was seeing him and his American Flag just fine. I think it's because (I live in the middle of nowhere Texas where good internet connections don't exist) so I have a satellite ISP (anyone thinking of getting DirecWay, don't..for a thousand reasons: don't...but I guess that's another topic). I assume that DirecWay isn't sitting well with the data in the GeoIP. I don't really think anything can be done about it, but I decided to post this anyways just to let you guys know and hopefully prevent another DirecWay user from pulling his hair out like I was. Or...I could be totally wrong with my guess and it is something else alltogether. Anyways, thanks again for the great contribution and terrific support in this forum for it.
  11. Thanks for the time you put into your Contrib! It helped a lot. I saw Linda's post where she explained how to do it, but being a php novice, the examples you provided was a great shove in the right direction. I needed 2 flat rates: 1 for US, and 1 for outside US so your "outsideus.php" was dead on. I have MS2 installed, so I compared your default flat.php to mine, they were identical, so I simply uploaded the outsideus module file and language file and away I went! I don't know if you are aware or not, but in the interest of providing some feedback: in the language files you have "MODULE_SHIPPING_xxxxxxxx_DESCRIPTION" defined where actually "MODULE_SHIPPING_xxxxxxxx_TEXT_DESCRIPTION" is what is needed...at least for me. I saw what I needed to do and fixed it without problems. Also (as you alluded to in your post) your "read me" seems unnecessarily complex. Please don't think me ungrateful or nitpicky, I just figured you would like some constructive feedback. Since the two flat rates are the only shipping options I offer, I am now working on automating the method selection process. Basically I'm going to try and do something in "checkout_shipping.php" like "If $county=United States use flat.php else, use outsideus.php". This way customers won't be able to screw up and select the wrong rate..I guess I would see it in the order email I receive, but this way I won't ever have to worry about not catching it or having to contact the customer to tell them they screwed up (it will also help me improve my php knowledge). If you have any suggestions on how to do this, let me know, otherwise, I'll just bumble my way through it until I get it right. Thanks again for the contribution; it was great, especially for a first one. It was a huge help.
