  1. Thanks for the Reply, Point taken re: older version of STS. I'll put the Worldpay module in then and see how it goes. I'm running the latest version of sts (4.3.3) so hopefully what appeared to be an issue in the past (with the Worldpay call-back not working) will simply not apply any more (fingers crossed). One question investigating this did raise for me was this: Is it possible to selectively enable or disable an individual page from being displayed using STS while having other pages use their relevant template? If I were to use the admin panel controls I can enable / disable sections of the system (info boxes, index pages etc.) or the entire system but not individul pages. Thanks for your continued advice on this great contrib. Regards, Bill
  2. Hi All, I am nearing the end of building our store. I'm using OSC2 MS2 with toe following contributions: STS 4.3; SEO URL's; discount coupon codes; I was hoping to add the Worldpay payment gateway as our main payment processing gateway but I've seen some rather unsettling articles on the forums about STS and Wroldpay not working together. The issue as I understand it is that the Worldpay call back requires that the file it runs NOT use an STS template as STS removes some required information returned by Worldpay in the header. In any event the solution I've seen proposed involves a small code to change to disable use of templates. This involves modifying the sts_display_output.php file. Most of the posts I saw were relatively old and did not seem relevant to STS 4.3.3 so yy questions are this: 2) What is the correct way to disable the use of templates for a specific file. The solution posted on the forums was this: If I use this method then I should be able to set $notemplate = "YES" in any module that I do not require to use STS templates. However I tried this and it appears to suppress the output of the template file but it does not display anything else either - just a blank screen. Therefore can someone tell if this is indeed the correct way to suppress template use on a per file basis in STS 4.3.3 2) Does anyone have STS and Worldpay working nicely together? It would be reassuring to know that at least it can be done! I'd really appreciate any input on this issue. Many thanks Bill
  3. Hi all, I use STS 4.3.3 with the discount coupon codes module. One issue can up during integration which I was wondering if anyone could comment. Basically there seems to be an issue with the code that displays error messages in the checkout_payment.php module. The sections of code that display the error messages are normally held in the header.php file. I looked at my installation files and this code was indeed where it shouod be but there were no error messages displayed when STS was installed. By copy the error displaying code directly into the checkout_payment.php module everything behaves as it should. So finally my question: Does STS use the normal header file ( /includes/header.php ) when it displays my checkout_payment.php file via a template or is the header.php file not used? Does STS have it's own version of header.php in a different location maybe? Just wondering if anyone could thouw any light on this. FYI - the brief discussion I raised on the discount coupon codes support thread starts here: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?s=&...t&p=1007867 Cheers, Bill
  4. Thanks very much. this has worked well. I just needed to enable the 'index templates' in the admin section for the STS module. Without this enabled the index.php_0.html file was not being picked up but the index.php.html was. Thanks again, Bill
  5. Interesting. I'll have a little hunt around on the Simple Template System support thread and see if I can find out what's happening. Thanks for the insight. Bill
  6. What I find strange is that this code is already in my catalog/include/header.php file but the error messages do not show up. So I added this code to my /catalog/checkout_payment file and now the error messages work. Has anyone else seen this? I'm using the Simple Template System v4.3 - is this having an effect on how the header.php file is included maybe? Bill
  7. Hi All, I'm using osc2 MS2 latest release. I have installed the following contributions: uk-customisation; STS4.3; discount coupon codes; SEO Url's; Everything appears to be working OK - it's just me that isn't :blink: I would like to have a custom stpore homepage which displays generic information about the store and displays an image (which may be a short animation at some point as well). The point is that I want this to appear only on the store homepage. I can't figure out which templates I need to make / or alter to achieve this effect. If I use a 'defualt' template then obviously my image appears on all pages. So I looked at making an 'index.php.html' template. This looks more promising but it looks like this template is not just used for the home page of the site bu also when a category is selected for example. Can anyone suggest how I can make a custom homepage using STS please. Many thanks, Bill Apologies for posting this twice. First attempt didn't appear at all and then there were two! Sorry

  9. Sorry - I meant to post this in the STS forum. Have reposted there.

  11. Many thanks for the information Ken. I did search the forum but didn't pick up the discussion of this topic. Once again, thanks. Bill
  12. Hi there, I have been testing with this contrib for a little while now and things seem to going well. I am seeing correctly formatted UK address everywhere EXCEPT when I am logged in to my account and I select to view my previous orders. On this listing the Country "United Kingdom" is only displaying as "U". I tried making orders with my country set to other values and in all cases it appears that only the first letter of the country is displayed. The module where the order details is displayed I think is: account_history_info.php but I cannot see anything obvious (to me at least :) ) that would cause the country name to be truncated when it is displayed. I'd appreciate any ideas on this one. Thanks, Bill
