    Simple Visitor Newsletter

    I wish I had read this post before I started the install of this conbribution. It needs a lot of work to be ok. The instructions for installation is incomplete. It is missing vital instructions to get it working. It has poor customer management ie: who to send to and who not to. It completely messed up my shopping cart template. I am not being inflammatory here, just wish that someone had written it before I found it. Simple solution is to export your customers details from your database either directly from PHPmyAdmin or such or there is a contribution. Then just import into phpList and you can do everything.

  2. Can anyone tell me why when I add a special, my content drop down half the page. If I remove the special, it pops back up to the top. I am using 2.2, STS template and the Simple visitor newsletter with HTML addon. If some one want to see what I'm talking about, the address is: http://safeweightloss4kids.com/catalog/index.php Hope someone can help. Thanks David

    Ok, for the next person who has this problem, here is the solution. The TABLE_CUSTOMERS_TEMP has to be defined in /admin/includes/database_tables.php define('TABLE_VISITOR', 'visitor'); define('TABLE_CUSTOMERS_TEMP', 'customers_temp'); The instructions left out defining the customers temp table.

    Answered the question myself. You have to change the Email Options under Configuration to Use MIME HTML when sending emails, then when you go into Newsletter manager and either edit an existing newsletter, or create, the dropdown menu is then on that page. Ok, so now I'm up to here. Anyone sort this one??? Seems to be a common problem so I'm sure there is a simple answer. Thanks David

    Can someone please tell me how to send HTML emails. Do I have to enable it somewhere? I have tested using Newsletter manager but it's still text only. I am using STS template and it's taken forever to get even just the box to show up where I want it. I have added emails (works) tested duplicate (works). I have read somewhere in this thread about a dropdown menu regarding the html newsletters -- where's that? I've gone through ever menu item and check everything. Do I need to change details in the Email Options under Configuration? Please help, my head hurts. David F22-Raptor - have you had any luck?

    [contribution] Super Download Store

    Hi Alex, Thank you for replying. I understand that 99.9% (or there abouts) of questions and problems people have with contributions is their own fault for not reading properly or entering code wrong or any other miriad of mistakes, but without someone to point to where they have gone wrong, it get a little frustrating. I have read through all 43 pages of this thread and the only logical thing I can come up with is the paypal module not being edited with the same changes to checkout_process.php (if I understand correctly, this file is bypassed when using paypal module). So having confirmation of this would help me to stop chasing my tail. Then my question is which paypal file: catalog/includes/modules/payment/paypal_standard.php this one? Also, If this is the problem, does someone have an already edited paypal file. Thanks again Alex. Regards David

    Sorry to keep adding bits, but I keep finding bits. When I look at an expired download link that was purchased through Check/Money Order, it shows all 5 files that were downloadable but the link has expired. With the Paypal purchased downloads, the link has expired (perhaps because the date is 1999 on the link expires notification) but only the group name, not the 5 individual files are listed. So as above where I have shown Download links Happy Families in a Heartbeat (D/L) Link expires: Tuesday 07 December, 1999 5 downloads remaining It should look like this: Download links Happy Families in a Heartbeat (D/L) - Download Happy Families Track 1 - 32.74Mb Link expires: Tuesday 07 April, 2009 5 downloads remaining Happy Families in a Heartbeat (D/L) - Download Happy Families Track 2 - 8.92Mb Link expires: Tuesday 07 April, 2009 5 downloads remaining Happy Families in a Heartbeat (D/L) - Download Happy Families Track 3 - 26.02Mb Link expires: Tuesday 07 April, 2009 5 downloads remaining Happy Families in a Heartbeat (D/L) - Download Happy Families Jewel case images - 817.29Kb Link expires: Tuesday 07 April, 2009 5 downloads remaining Happy Families in a Heartbeat (D/L) - Download Happy Families Track 1, 2 and 3 - 67.22Mb Link expires: Tuesday 07 April, 2009 5 downloads remaining Not sure what is going on here. Any help would be appreciated. I am using the PayPal website Payment Standard module and RC2. David

    An addition to that, This appears to only be when using PayPal as check or money order has the download links active and the expiry date is correct. David

    Ok, here's an interesting one. Downloads have been working fine. Just had an email from someone who can't download product now. Checked setting, and he should be able to download. Went in and purchased a product myself, and when I looked at the download link, it says Download links Happy Families in a Heartbeat (D/L) Link expires: Tuesday 07 December, 1999 5 downloads remaining How can the date be 1999. I have checked the server date and it is current. Any other ideas. David

    Doh, thanks Eveline. I should look a little harder before asking. It had to be something very simple but I couldn't see it for looking. Regards David

    Great to see you got a result Eveline. So now, can someone help to give me a result too. I know the answer is really basic but I still need someone to tell me what needs to be changed in order for the actual file names to be displayed when clients are downloading their purchased products ie: instead of - File 21 File 22 File 23 etc. it displays Benandthebulliestrack1.mp3 Benandthebulliestrack2.mp3 Benandthebulliestrack3.mp3 Appreciate the help as always. David

    This was the response from AlexStudio: 1. It means to hide the actual filename and only show the given desciption so hackers cannot steal the files. Of course you can modify the script to show filenames in the list. The response to this question some time ago. So this can be done. Can someone tell me what script/s I need to edit to get the download links to show the actual file name. If possible, give me lots of details. Thanks in advance. David

    So what you're saying is just undo everything. Is there another alternative for having downloads larger than 34Mb say 50 to 150Mb. Thanks David

    Hope someone can help with this. I have large download files (groups of three, zipped into a single file) so I read this contribution and it seemed like it would do the job. Have installed as per instructions. When I run catalog/admin/filegroup_db_setup.php as per step 4 of the instructions, I get this error 1146 - Table 'trans128_osc2.TABLE_PRODUCTS_ATTRIBUTES_DOWNLOAD_GROUPS' doesn't exist select * from TABLE_PRODUCTS_ATTRIBUTES_DOWNLOAD_GROUPS where download_group_id = 0 and language_id = '1' [TEP STOP] I have imported both sql files into my database and on viewing the table structure, I do have a table products_attributes_download_groups in there. Thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. David
