    USPS Rate V4, Intl Rate V2 (official support thread)

    Hi Jim - I'd recommend considering the following changes to the add-on: 1. adding in a check for and coding to use curl before the http_client as curl isn't as uncommon as you might think and it doesn't suffer the same issues as http_client with xml decoding (the Zencart usps module uses this configuration by default) 2. renaming the function http_chunked_decode because if the pecl http extension was installed (which includes the function http_decode_chunked), this usps add-on will cause an 'already declared' error which may be confusing to some Simon

    Hi Ben - what proof do you have they've done this? If I restore the original code the module breaks, so not sure they've done this. Simon

    It looks like the issue is a change in the response transfer-encoding to 'chunked' .. the numbers / hexdecimals you're trying to filter out are the chunked line counts, with 0 at the end to indicate the end of the 'chunk.' However using curl or even the pecl http_chunked_decode function, it still doesn't parse correctly even though it looks as though it does. Simon

    Yes I could edit the database and remove all the ' quotes ... or it seems change them to this character ’ (which I think is an acute, which USU5 does strip from the rewrite!) as in the book title: The All New Beginner’s Guide Just trying to figure out how USU5 picks which characters to strip from the rewritten urls.

    Hi Marie - I agree punctuation isn't a good idea for seo. Yes I tried the 'remove all n-a characters' setting, apparently a ' (which is a single quote but also considered an apostrophe) isn't considered a non-alphanumeric character. Simon

    Hi - no, I wasn't implying that it would affect page ranking ... more that it could be done, and just wondering if USU5 could produce the same result s'all. Thanks for your time. Simon

    This isn't a USU5 problem, but this should work in the htaccess file: RewriteEngine on # domainname.com redirect to www.domainname.com RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domainname.com RewriteRule ^(.*) http://www.domainname.com/$1 [R=301,L] Simon

    Er, ok ... leaving it with the '39' is better? If I google "youre the voice" I can see the top result is wikipedia with a url : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You're_the_Voice Hmm. Simon

    try uncommenting this : #RewriteBase /catalog/ to become RewriteBase /catalog/ ... it'll make a world of difference :) simon

    Hello Robert, Thank you very much for releasing the code for this contribution - your instructions were very clear and it works just fine. I have tried to find the answer to this by searching the posts so far, but at 89 pages and a 'broad' topic, I've had no success. Can you tell me how we can get a title of a product that includes punctuation (an apostrophe in this case instead of the "39"): /amy-winehouse-you39re-the-voice-p-9172.html? to show as /amy-winehouse-you're-the-voice-p-9172.html? would this be a case for a character conversion file ? thanks for your time simon
