  1. Thanks TracyS- I just came back here to tell everyone not to worry, and that I've just sussed it all out this very minute, but many thanks for replying so promptly. I'm still using the dynamically generated Categories box, I just wanted to use buttons for 'my account', 'contact us', 'new products' and 'view cart'. My next step is to create the buttons as graphical rollovers, and eventually end up using flash. On the subject of flash, would I use the same technique to carry the session using flash navigation?
  2. OK. I have installed Oscommerce and STS 4 locally, using XAMPP as a test server. I've created an HTML file which is being used as the template, featuring a graphical banner at the top of the page with four graphical buttons to its left for navigation of 'my account', 'new products', 'contact us', and 'view cart,. Lower down on the left is the categories menu. Working in dreamweaver, I've linked each button to its respective PHP file, but its here that I think I am missing something. When it came to testing the site, I noticed that navigating using the categories box held a session id to maintain items in the shopping cart, whereas navigating using my buttons seems to somehow loose the session id. I had a quick scout around on the knowledge base with reference to session id's, but all I came up with is code for use within a PHP file, which is seemingly no use for an HTML STS template. I've read that using the 'force cookies' option would help with my situation, but that it would be of no use as I am planning on using a shared SSL certificate. What do I need to do to give my buttons the ability to carry the needed session id? And if I may run without being able to walk, what would I need to do in order to implement a flash menu in place of my created buttons? Thanks in advance for any help. p.s. If it turns out that I'm just being dense, I humbly promise to ascend a snowcapped mountain and lash myself senseless with a gnarled sappling -completely naked - and post the resulting footage on google video.
  3. I've just enabled register_globals through xampp to fix the problem for now, STS 4.4 works fine until I attempt the register_globals fix. Does this mean I'll likely run into the problem again when I eventually upload to a remote host, and how will I go around combing STS 4.4 and the register_globals fix? Or is my host likely to turn register_globals on for me? (I've heard this is a pretty bad thing to do, however) Sorry if this is a daft question.... Thanks in advance. R.

  5. Hi, I'm completely new with Oscommerce, and only in the process of learning PHP - I'm literally a few days in. I managed to successfully install Oscommerce ms2.2 060817 and everything worked fine after downloading and implementing the register_globals fix. After the installation, my next step was to install STS4.4 - which I did, and this is where things went a bit wrong. After installing STS4.4, the register_globals problem returned. I trusted that repatching the installation with the register_globals fix would circumvent this problem, but I am now left with the following error: Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\catalog\includes\functions\html_output.php on line 78 I installed Oscommerce on a local server, using XAMPP set for PHP 4.4.4 What am I doing wrong, and what would I need to do to fix the problem? I've tried enabling register_globals in the php.ini file in the XAMPP folder, but this seems to have little effect, plus I'd like my Osc installation to work with register_globals off as it will in its final hosting environment. Many thanks in advance.
