  1. Hi @Goncalvez What payment modules do you have installed? I would try using "Cash On Delivery Module" or "Check/Money Order Module" and do a mock order as a customer to see if that goes through for you and then test PayPal or whatever other payment module you are trying to make work.


  2. Hi @kathy7012  Where you say it shows Tax Class just to the right of that in my admin I have the option of "none"  which leaves it same or "Taxable Goods" which when selected then adds the tax for that item.

    It has been a while, but I believe you need to set that up in admin under "Locations / Taxes" then "Tax Classes" and click to Add a New Tax Class "Taxable Goods". Then you need to go into "Locations / Taxes" to "Tax rates" and set up new Tax Rate for your tax amount needed for your location for the Taxable Goods.

     


  3. Hi @JcMagpie

    Thank you for your contribution. I have installed this on my website and need some CSS help perhaps? On the homepage I get just the top categories show and all is ok, but any other page the subcats pop out and go way off the lower screen and I cannot scroll to see all of the items in the box. Can I make the wording space wider so it will not go so far down or I guess I can just have the top cats show on all pages as at least those will be shown.

    Thanks for any advice.

  4. Hello, welcome to the world of oscommerce! I would highly recommend to download and use the latest and most up to date version which is available at the following link: oscommerce Edge BS version

    The standard version I believe you downloaded will not be very current I am afraid and you will be disappointed. 

    Best Wishes in your journey!

     


  5. @kymationHi Jim,

    Thanks for your advice. I do not fully understand the database as you said. I do have a backup of my database before I made any changes. I cannot remember doing a restore of my database or if I did it was a long time ago and not sure of best method to do so. Should I do it through phpmyadmin in my cpanel or is there a better way? I have read to go into the database and click to check all tables and drop, then import the database sql file of old database. Is this correct?

     

     


  6. I was able to install this on my modified 2.3.4 BS site with using the sql file for 48 US Continental states, but I need to break those out into 3 zones so I have the Northeastern US states in one, middle states in another and then the Western states in 3rd zone. I thought I could use the sql for the 48 states and change it to include only the states I wanted in each zone, but I must be doing something wrong with my code? Can anyone give me a clue what I am doing wrong here?

    Here is original sql file for all the 48 states:

    INSERT INTO `geo_zones` VALUES ('', 'Shp: United States: 48', 'United States:  Continental 48 states', NULL, now());
    INSERT INTO `zones_to_geo_zones` VALUES ('', 223, 1, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 4, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 5, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 12, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 13, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 14, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 15, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 16, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 18, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 19, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 22, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 23, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 24, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 25, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 26, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 27, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 28, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 29, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 31, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 32, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 33, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 34, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 35, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 36, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 37, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 38, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 39, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 40, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 41, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 42, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 43, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 44, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 45, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 47, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 48, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 49, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 51, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 53, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 54, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 55, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 56, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 57, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 58, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 59, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 61, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 62, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 63, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 64, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 65, last_insert_id(), NULL, now());
     

    and here is my sql code for to attempt to add just the Northeastern states:

    INSERT INTO `geo_zones` VALUES ('', 'Shp: United States: NE', 'NE United States', NULL, now());
    INSERT INTO `zones_to_geo_zones` VALUES ('', 223, 14, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 15, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 29, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 31, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 32, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 40, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 41, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 43, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 44, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 47, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 51, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 53, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 59, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 61, last_insert_id(), NULL, now()),
                                            ('', 223, 63, last_insert_id(), NULL, now());

    Thanks for any advice.


  7. I would say Jack gave a very good response for your question. The only thing I think more to add would be with the PayPal Payments Pro (Direct Payment)  - $30/month you get the virtual terminal ability which means you will be able to log into their website and process payments if you take a phone order and such, but if not I would say try the Hosted Solution and see how it goes for the customer to stay on your website if that it what you would prefer and you can always upgrade to the other if needed.


  8. Hi Andre,

     

    Like has been stated, your old database is most likely modified from the template you had installed. I would suggest to compare the table components for the customers info and products that you want to keep from old database to weed out those from template that are the issue causing errors. Of course make Back Up of all files somewhere safe before making any changes! If you set up a new 2.3.4 BS website and let it fill in the database with the demo info you will then be able to take that new database and compare the tables of the things you need brought over to make sure that there is no extra columns, etc that were added for the template you installed on old one.


  9. Hi Heather,

     

    Just curious as to why you decided to go with the standard shop instead of with the bootstrap version right away as that one is responsive and such for handheld devices. I would recommend thinking about going the bootstrap route since it appears you are just starting out and do not have any modifications done and not much time into it yet.


  10. Hi Heather,

     

    You do not put all files into one folder. I am looking at the standard version of the directions. You did not mention which one you have, but believe that is what you are using. Under new files in directions I see this:

     

    2.2.3 New Files
     
    catalog/includes/languages/english/modules/header_tags/ht_theme_switcher.php
     
    catalog/includes/modules/header_tags/ht_theme_switcher.php
     
    ** I think I found your store setup under the folder "cataloginstall" Therefore, that is what you have as your "catalog" folder mentioned in the directions. So you must place that 1 file in package called ht_theme_switcher.php in the header_tags folder which is found under the modules folder which is found under english folder which is found under languages folder which is under the includes folder in your cataloginstall folder
     
    Then you must place the other ht_theme_switcher.php file in the package into the catalog (or in your case catalginstall / includes / modules / header_tags folder
     
    You then need to download and make a copy of your 
     
    catalog (cataloginstall) /includes / template_top.php file. You can try to upload modified file provided in package over the one you have and see if it works or if not, you will need to do a file compare of the 2 and see what would have to be changed manually.
