    Google XML Sitemap w/ Admin support

    I hadn't noticed any problem at first by turning on the Search-Engine Safe URL's, but a day later I noticed that the product popup images started showing up as the default logo graphic. I thought the problem was with the config files because I had recently moved the catalog directory to the root (it used to be inside of a second directory). After checking out any config possibilities I remembered I'd left the Safe URL's on. Turn it off and all the graphics for the products come back. There's usually a reason something is labeled "still in development". There must come a time when you have to believe you've modded enough, without starting from scratch. I'm using oscommerce 2.2 with STS, Header Tags Controller, All Products, Order Editor and about 20 lesser contributions, while using a shared SSL. I'm amazed any of this stuff works so well :rolleyes:

    Google XML Sitemap w/ Admin support

    Yeah, same problem here. I should'a known better. Who gives a damn about diff's and chunks and - and +, dates, times or other obtuse distractions. I thought I'd take chance again when I saw the new instructions, but I figure this isn't going to work on my shared server anyhoo. The only place I find the path the error is talking about is my two configure.php files, yet my site is working perfectly with SSL and 25 other contributions. I tried it again with the new instructions and hit another wall with the above errors. I don't have SEO installed. I don't think it really matters. I turned on and off the Search Engine Safe URL's with no differences noted. It's time to put this puppy to sleep (and get some myself) and use something like - http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/ It's free and it works. The split up files for the sitemap examples were strange enough, but this contribution doesn't handle anything other than google anyway. There's still a text based file needed for Yahoo and maybe an html based for my home page. A total of 6 hours spend on two nights, but hey, I'm getting better at recovering my system with backups...

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    I've taken a peek at it but it's pretty much in shambles with about 12 patches to version 1.1. I think I'll hold off on something this extensive until I build a new version of the store. It seems like MVS should go in earlier in the development along with your Order Editor for MVS. I'm using STS and about 20 contributions. MVS changes very many of my most modified files and I've already had problems with some contributions not working with STS without changing it's design, like "All Products v4.4" (redeclare clean_html_comments()). I'll go back and visit it later, when I understand how to stop the redeclare problems with STS. The author just points to other forum topics with similar problems, blames STS and all template designs in general, and I didn't understand what exactly I'd have to do to fix my site and still use STS. I've managed to get order editor, header_tag_controller, fedex_direct, paypal_express, cvv2, email_validation,change prices by category, about_us page, and several less powerful contributions working together with STS. Our problem is that we want a food product that can spoil to have to use a fast shipping method even though the fedex contribution offers quotes for slower shipping methods (that's what's so great about having Order Editor). I've posted notices in red all over the products and in the checkout, but some people just won't read. I am hoping there is something that can make fedex specify 2 Day air if a product that can spoil is included in an order. I've also looked at the Ship_Separately contribution, but it makes each item ship in a separate box as far as quoting shipping charges from fedex, so three pounds of product is quoted at $60 shipping instead of $18. Thanks again for your fast and precise help. You didn't make this newbie feel like I was wasting your time :thumbsup:

    That did the trick. I was missing the first line which seems obvious now. This is very nice work and great support! Thank You. We anticipate having to make changes to a fair amount of orders due to our own inability to force a specific type of shipping for a particular item (I'm still working on that). Meanwhile, we want to be able to 'adjust' an order without having to have the buyer make a whole new order. This contribution will allow us to fully track our changes and the status, and keep the customer in the loop. :thumbsup:

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    Yeah! By poking around and adding some info to "admin/includes/classes/oe_order.php", "admin/edit_orders.php", and "admin/includes/languages/english/edit_orders.php". The Order Editor is pulling the CVV number ('cc_cvv2' from $order) but it can't update the record. I'm overlooking something, but I'm a lot closer...

    Sorry, actual name for the contribution I used is Credit Card With CVV2, originally posted by a guy named Donibane.

    I used the contribution named cvv2_2.1 It added a field named 'cc_cvv2' to the orders table. I was able to do something that basic by just poking around, although the entry box is as long as the name or credit card number boxes on the input form (I'll poke around a little more to see how those boxes are sized. I just did another backup...so I'm feeling brave again). At least it does work. Inserting that field manually made me realize that I wouldn't be able to manually install the complex sql changes in your contribution. That's what was so great about finding out about copying the text into the SQL box in phpMyAdmin :) I started at page one and made it to about page 20 in this forum before I started jumping around. Finally, page 87, the last page, had me stoked because "cgreid" asked my question, but it was 3am and I waited until this morning to actually try it. I try to read a lot before asking questions. I don't usually like to advertise my inexperience :rolleyes: This is getting to be more fun everyday, er night!

    That's exactly what I did and - magic! - I'm a newbie to mySql also, but figured that the worst thing that could happen is that I have to reload the database file that I've backed up at least 10 times over the last couple of weeks (I just ftp the whole store folder to my computer). After the sql addtion I did not have any problems finding and replacing the text in the listed documents and adding the new files. I did have one panic when I tried to change an order that had already been made. The "New Order Confirmation" system was sending emails to the buyer with a broken link. It works fine with orders created after the installation.

    Sweet! and just what I needed to install this excellent contribution. I was in the same boat. I've been working with oscommerce and sts for a month or so and I was stumped with this process until reading your instructions which were perfect for my situation. I had made one other edit manually to the database to add the CVV2 contribution, but I did it the hard way apparently... :blink: This was much easier, done the right way. I'm learning so much by working with all these improvements. I got this contribution installed, and it seems to work great. I don't have any tax issues because we will be shipping food items in the US and there's no tax in Washington state, even on shipping, if the product is tax free. Is there a way to show the CVV number in the edit page? I'm just thinking that a customer might want to change their card info and would like to be able to track that also. Thanks again for the hard work!
