  1. Please, is there anybody out there with experience of Master Products who can help me with this?? When I add an already existing product to a master as a slave it then disappears as a standalone product in the product listing. Help!
  2. Hi Chipo I'm having the same problem I need the products to appear as a standalone product as well as a "Slave". Did you manage to fix this?? Does anybody else have any ideas how to work around this?? Thanks Terry
  3. I'm also getting the following on the admin side too: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/theelec/public_html/linktest/catalog/admin/product_types.php(484) : eval()'d code on line 1 Why is this happening on an fresh install?? Can anybody give me some advice?? Thanks Terry
  4. Hi I've run Linked on a fresh install and keep getting this error: 1054 - Unknown column 'type_show_product_as' in 'where clause' select type_id from product_types where type_show_product_as = 'Option' Does anybody have any ideas??/ It seems strange nobody else has mentioned it, and on a clean install too?? Bizarre. Thanks in advance Terry
  5. Anybody??....Please??
  6. Hi All I really hope somebody can help me with this. I already posted this in the "Master Products" contrib topic and have received no response. I had my downloads store functioning just fine, using the "Super Downloads Store" contrib to manage the downloads. After installing the Master Products contrib - anything I create as a Master Product is being passed to the cart as physical product rather than virtual. This leads to two problems: 1/ No download link 2/ Shipping is being added to the total. I really need the Master Products contrib running to bundle releases together. Can anyone point me to the right area to edit in regards to the product type being passed to the cart?? I can't for the life of me find it. I'm running Rc 2. Many thanks Terry
  7. Hi Guys Big problem with Master Products returning product type as physical rather than virtual. Been working with oscommerce for some time now and have a vague idea of what's going on. I installed Master Products on my mp3 downloads site for the obvious reason of the option to sell lp's or individual tracks. The only problem is that all Master products are being sent to the shopping cart as physical rather than virtual product and therefore the download links aren't showing and shipping is being added. Does anybody have any idea on how to change the product type being sent to checkout?? I'm using Super Downloads Store too, I'm aware that this may present some problems. Please, if anyone could help me it would be much appreciated - I've spent days scouring this forum. Thanks in advance. Terry
  8. Hi All (particularly Top Rasta if you're still around as this seems to be your area of expertise) I've got Master Products up and running fine but it seems to be passing over my downloadable products (mp3's) as physical products and therefore the downloads are not available at the end of the process...And it adds shipping!! I'm a semi newbie at this and can't quite figure out where to look to fix this problem - does anyone have any advice as I'm pulling my hair out over this. Please, help before I lose what little hair I have left!! Thanks Terry
  9. Hi Alex I hope you are well. I run an mp3 downloads store. I´m running OS RC2 on a unix server and am using your rather wonderful SDS (which you gave me some good advice on setting up some time ago). All is good on the site and the SDS is working perfectly. I'm now getting ready to launch the Brazilian version of the site (same server, same appearance, different language/pricing policy/database) and want to know if its possible to access the downloads from the main site rather than copying all of the files onto the Brazilian site (and therefore needing to double storage capacity by 1 tb!!). I tried direct paths to the folders, turning on redirect and nothing seems to work. I'm really pulling my hair out over this one. There must be a way of doing it. The URL for my main site is: and the Brazilian site is: Here is the code for my cat/inc/config.php file. <?php define('HTTP_SERVER', ''); define('HTTPS_SERVER', ''); define('ENABLE_SSL', false); define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', ''); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', ''); define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/teu/catalog/'); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/teu/catalog/'); define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/teu/catalog/'); define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/teu/catalog/'); define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/'); define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'icons/'); define('DIR_WS_INCLUDES', 'includes/'); define('DIR_WS_BOXES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'boxes/'); define('DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'functions/'); define('DIR_WS_CLASSES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'classes/'); define('DIR_WS_MODULES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'modules/'); define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'languages/'); define('DIR_WS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', '/home/theelec/public_html/catalog/pub/'); define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/theelec/public_html/teu/catalog/'); define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', '/home/theelec/public_html/catalog/download/'); define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', '/home/theelec/public_html/catalog/pub/'); ?> Please, if you could have a quick look and see if you can spot any glaring errors or offer any advice it would be much appreciated. Many, many thanks Terry
  10. Hi Bill...Anyone?? Sorry for the bump butI'm really pulling my hair out over this one. There HAS to be a way of doing this. If I have to store my mp3's in two places on the same server I'l have to pay for another terrabyte of storage which is something I really can't afford to do. Please, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Terry
  11. Thanks for your help, and sorry for the multiple posting...They came as an afterthought after addrressing you directly. I tried putting as many direct path combinations to the folder none of which semed to work. I'll give the download by redirect a go. Thanks for the tip - I'll let you know how it goes.
  12. Hi Bill This is a vaguely related issue and you seem very knowledgeable on the subject so I hope you don't mind me posting here. I have my site set up and everything functioning perfectly downloads wise, I'm using Alex's Super Downloads contribution and all is cool. I've recently set up a Brazilian version of the site on the same server, same look etc just different language and pricing. I have 10,000 plus downloadable mp3's on my main site and I want to keep all of the product in one place (on the main site) and access the downloads from there. I've tried putting in direct paths to the folders in my Configure files and nothing sems to be working. I've tried 1000's of combinations of paths and I still keep getting the "No downloads folder" error message. Do you know if what I'm trying to do is possible?? Do you have any ideas from the top of your head how I can do this?? Please let me know if you need me to post any of my php here. Any help is greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance Terry
  13. ...Anyone??...Pleaaaase
  14. Hi Alex I hope you are well....Many thanks for this great contribution. I recently had to migrate my store to another server using php 5. Consequently I had to upgrade OScommerce etc to function correctly in this environment. Rather than upgrade manually I thought I would do a fresh install and copy my design changes over to that. I've tried to install SDS on a fresh install of OS 3 times and keep getting this error: Fatal error: Call to a member function add_current_page() on a non-object in /home/theelec/public_html/catalog/includes/application_top.php on line 312 Do you have any ideas what could be causing this?? I downloaded the latest version of sds too for this (V1.1 - Linsayaang vers.) Please let me know as I'm pulling what little hair I've get left out over this. Many thanks in advance. Terry
