  1. Website gone strange!

    The website is doing all sorts of strange things. Customers are being constantly logged out, and the site is freezing all the time.I am also finding that if I delete an item it doesn't delete, so suspect this is a database issue. I got in touch with the host and the advice was as below. I have no idea where to find the file they are talking about, I cannot see anything called that, and why all of a sudden is there a problem, it was fine last week and I haven't touched the coding in years! any help would be appreciated, thanks I would suggest to disable the cache.You need to add in the root directory of the website the following code in the .htaccess file to disable mod security:<IfModule mod_security.c>SecFilterEngine OffSecFilterScanPOST Off</IfModule>Please put in your .htaccess file this code to disable the cache:<IfModule LiteSpeed>CacheDisable public /CacheDisable private /</IfModule>
  2. Credit Class & Gift Vouchers for 2.3.4

    Hi, I'm running this, and when I select the start end date for the voucher, the lack of available years is beginning to cause a problem. the drop down menu only allows a year selection from 2010 to 2018, can anyone tell me how I change this to essentially remove the earlier years and add some later ones, i'e so I can run the dates from present to 2021 at least. thanks
  3. Hi, This contribution looks perfect, but with 13 pages of comments/errors/updates I'm a little worried it might be too complicated for me! Essentially my site is already a mess due to the clumsy addition of a dresscode theme. Is this contribution difficult for a non-programmer to do, and is it likely to 'break' my live site if i do something wrong? Windows 10 has just 'updated' my pc, and resets my printer on a document to the last printer i used. I usually have one file open to copy/paste my label info to, whihc is then sent to a thermal printer (small labels), and my invoices go off to my brother A4 printer. Now if I have to change the printer setting each time to the one i want as it no-long saves the printer choice for the document. Hence the reason i need a batch printing method! thanks Kellie
  4. Hi, Pretty sure there isn't any admin switch. I used to remove the yellow paypal button and you do have to edit the code.
  5. Paypal Express Missing Address Line

    Scrap that! I did get this to work on a brand new unmodded install, but on my live website, which is now fully up to date, this fix doesn't work. There are actually numerous places/files which mention the Street_address, but fail to mention company or suburb. I have tried to add these in, and still it carries the address, minus the company and second line of address. If anyone has come up with a solution please let me know
  6. blog module?

    Hi, Czymborjeff@gmail.com did you ever figure this out? I got the same error. Messed about for ages with it. There were spelling errors in a couple of the files though, but even after fixing them, same error (a few places title was spelt 'titel') Given up! But MrPhil, I did want a simple blog - just for news, like 'blah blah fabric back in stock!' etc Kellie
  7. Paypal Express Missing Address Line

    For anyone who is suffering the same issue I finally got this to work! the code above I added 'street_address' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOSTREET'], 'suburb' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SUBURB'], But there is also 3 other places in the code that need the 'suburb' code adding. Essentially I copied the code into word, did a search on the word STREET, and then where ever there was 'street' code that looked relevant added copied and pasted and edited to 'suburb' code.
  8. Paypal Express Missing Address Line

    I also note in my papal express the code looks like this: $sendto = array('firstname' => '', 'lastname' => '', 'company' => '', 'street_address' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOSTREET'], 'suburb' => '', 'postcode' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOZIP'], 'city' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOCITY'], 'zone_id' => '', 'zone_name' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOSTATE'], 'country_id' => '', 'country_name' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOCOUNTRY'], 'country_iso_code_2' => '', 'country_iso_code_3' => '', 'address_format_id' => '');
  9. Paypal Express Missing Address Line

    Hi, This is a problem I have had for ages and the fix didn't work for me. When I put the address in as comapny First Name Last Name Address 1 Address 2 City+, DN4 0RD state, UK it carried to paypal as : Delivery addressFirst Name Last Name Address 1 City+, State DN4 0RD - it then adds this address to the customer address book Do I have to remove and re-install the module after making changes? I am presuming I would, and did so, but I am actually having difficulty figuring out which module I have actually got installed! any idea why this isn't working for me, I am on osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.3.2, but will update when I get a few free hours!
  10. Simple Blog 1.0

    Hi, I've been messing about with this for a while now, and I too cannot get any joy! I get the following as soon as I try to add my 'news' I've tried all sorts, and i'm pretty sure there is an error in the installation instructions or a file missing. Warning: mkdir(): No such file or directory in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 46 Warning: fopen(www.corsetmaking.co.uk\catalog\news/2015/20150301152354.txt): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 47 Warning: fwrite() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 48 Warning: fwrite() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 49 Warning: fwrite() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 50 Warning: fclose() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 51
  11. Hi, Yes, they have a model number and it is unique to each item. I used the EP with my current website, but the more recent add on seemed different and it was with the latest install. I did not run an SQL when I installed this one, though i'm certain I did last time, but it was a while ago.
  12. Okay, I see now that it didn't add some of my items as they were categories without products. I added a couple of products to the empty category and it did download. I then duplicated a couple of those products, changing the product number, and re-uploaded. the new stuff did not show! It will not download categories that have no products - that i can live with additional products added to a category don't upload - that makes the add-on pretty useless! starting to give up now1 maybe it is not compatible with the latest install? I used EP_V2_77a any help would be appreciated
  13. Hi, I have installed this on a new install. very few mods. I am having the same problem as RMD27, it would appear that is only downloading and uploading the first line of my database. So my spreadsheet shows the headers and then one row. If I add further rows they do not show. If I add extra categories/products manually and then download using EP, i still only get one row! I note the suggestion above about MB but i have no idea what/where i would look to see if this was my problem, and I have made so few changes to the installation I certainly haven't been deleting code. Any ideas?
  14. Hi, Can anyone help please. I've just set up a new install and added the store mode (only add on so far). I have currently set it to 'closed', and if you add the product to cart and choose checkout you go nowhere - all correct. However, if you press the yellow tab 'paypal express, you can checkout! The paypal express has been the bain of my life on my other website, and paypal overides my shipping addresses on that one, so i'm thinking this will do the same. On my old site, my only remedy was to make the express button invisible so no-one pressed it! Because the paypal express module is pre-loaded on the new install I cannot believe that there is not a solution to the problem to prevent people checking out - or is it that the store mode is simply not compatible with paypal express? I do find closing the checkout when necessary totally essential and really feel this option should be pre-installed anyway - I cannot live without it!! site is www.corsetmaking.co.uk Thank you - and Happy New Year Kellie
  15. Prohibiting Shipping to States/Countries

    @@Jack_mcs Thank you for the info. I would like to allow my existing customers to remain, and that doesn't seem viable with these options, so it would mean upsetting a few people! I'll wander through the contributions and see if there is any way around it! @@14steve14 - yes I use the RM shipping and that works fine. The problem is if an order is over 2kg it may have to go via courier. I recently sent an order to Korea (Rep) and it was stopped by customs who want Tariff codes for each item. There was over 40 different items! The codes are difficult to figure what goes with what. E.g - you get in the section for Textiles and there is a different code for embroidery fabric, and for nylon and for cotton, etc. My fabrics are often mixed fibres, sometimes I don't even know what composition they are so its impossible to know what Tarrif code it is - and i'll be damned if I know why the hell it makes any difference to customs! In the end I gave up and they returned the package too me. It seemed that had I done the codes customs would have charged ME for exporting - sod that I pay enough tax for things coming in! Kellie
