    [contribution] Simple Template System (sts)

    I am in the same boat. I have read and read but I just do not understand what to do. I searched for column_left.php as I wish to add a link to my forum. But found 5 versions. One I disregarded as its in another install on my server but D:\Documents and Settings\Andys\My Documents\mistatees-rc\catalog\includes D:\Documents and Settings\Andys\My Documents\mistatees-rc\catalog\admin\includes D:\Documents and Settings\Andys\My Documents\mistatees-rc\catalog\includes\modules\sts_inc D:\Documents and Settings\Andys\My Documents\mistatees-rc\upload\templates\freeoscommerce_086\content\index SO I have not got a clue which one needs altering and more importantly why> ?

    Well not really. :) Although you can see how confused I am I posted a link to the wrong site. It should be http://www.mistatees-rc.co.uk/catalog/index.php and this is the text I can not alter the size of. "Mistatees-RC is here to provide a service. NOT to take over the world or become the next Bill Gates so if you want anything just ask. Our prices are fair and realistic but we still pride ourselves on personal service." I can alter the text but can not find which style to alter!

    Hi I am sorry if I seem dumb but I have tried my hardest to help myself to no avail. I have installed a template and also STS but can not see how to alter the text in the main image section. http://www.mistatees-rc.co.uk Can any body point me to wards some docs I can follow. The ones I have seen assume too much prior knowledge. Thanks in advance

    Source for v3 Templates?

    Hi again When i say support I mean the useful replies such as yours. (not being sarcastic) But if you see my point the guy asked a month ago and no one replied . Saying what you said was useful. You might not think so but I appreciate the rules prevent you "advertising" even inadvertently but if your reply had of been a month ago...or someone had replied...do you see what I am saying! As for developers waiting I had version 3 for some time now on the basis it seemed point less installing version 2 only to relearn version 3 when it went live. Version 3 will suit be as |i am not going to be doing online transactions until some time in the future. I felt version 3 would have been out of Alpha by the time I was ready to go live. But I do know what you mean though! ;)

    Source for v3 Templates?

    Not at all mate. I have just installed a free template and it suits me just fine. My comment was based on the fact during my search for info on where the tax rates have been hidden in version 3 I felt that I came across many unanswered questions from others with the same questions as I had. Hence it looks to the newbie that support is not that forthcoming. I realise people have lives and are not expected to sit here all night in case I post once in 12 months BUT some posts have not been replied to since August and beyond. A brilliant product.....I used it many years ago! It would be sad to see it die through lack of user support....and that includes new users saying if their problems have been solved.

    seems not. Is this software dying or is support just slow for version 3??

    Tax rates

    I am having the same problem but you asked this question in August. No one know the answer yet??

    Template install

    There should be. I started using oscommerce some 4 years ago and I remember what I had the most problems with now.....layout and templates. I can understand some resentment when some people charge for what other do for free but if editing the main page was made easier and CSS changes easier to access I am sure many more people would be able to use the software.

    [contribution] "Live Customer Support"

    You can see a fair bit about this in search engines but I am not sure how technical the info you require is. http://5679soft.virtualave.net/status.html The guy in the text file of his download might know. I will also carry on looking and post more URLS if they look hopeful. http://www.ykwong.com/statufaq.html http://javascript.internet.com/miscellaneo...icq-status.html (the one above says that the servers get overloaded and do not show the image perhaps thats whats happening to me :) http://www.zend.com/codex.php?id=216&single=1 http://www.eksperten.dk/spm/93933 http://www.faqchest.com/prgm/php-l/php-00/...1314_20240.html http://www.phpbuilder.com/mail/php-general...000071/2321.php http://www.hereintown.net/~wink/ (This one looks a little cranky but I like the way their ICpage updtes the status of ICQ so perhaps they know something to help you never know!) http://www.beginnersphp.co.uk/icqstatus.php that should do for now. Not sure if any of it is any good as I dont understand what you need to know but there might be something there.

    Hi denis I have been really busy in the past two seeks and I have not checked the site much but I just logged in and I notice the images are not showing. IS this due to the ICQ status problems or corrupted or missing files my end? I will have a look around but if its down to status problems I am stumped. thanks in advance

    yes denis has amde some alterations and it now works for both guido amd myself. Hopefully denis will pick this us if not I can let you try it out at your own risk! The one problem we have found but hjave yet to let denis know is that if one person is on live chat and another tries to come on also it crashes the first conversation......but we have some more testing to do first! hope this helps Same for me :cry: Anyway to solve this problem??
  14. Thanks burt ! so a picture starts to emerge but what I could do with is someone who wishes to install live support or /chat/leave a message to install the following contrib http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,872 and tell me if they have problems running it! If any one does do this could you please post your findings. My problems are occuring on a post Nov snapshot so if I really have to I will have to use MS1 BUT as this will entail much work that I can't even remember WHAT I am have done I am slightly reticent to set off down that route just now. I would prefer to find out what the problem is and get that shop live and set a new one up with a view to switching as and when I get all that sorted.
  15. Nice to know its fine for you. In fact I think mine is also BUT its a problem with one contrib I have , the biggest worry and the reason I am thinking that maybe its down to 4.3.1 is because many others run this contrib along with the Author and they have no such problems. It is the most frustarting thing I have with OS Commerce especially as I dont understand enough to know how to test or fix it.............
