  1. A new version has been uploaded with these changes. Tested through Phoenix and php 8. Added version for Phoenix .0.8.0 and above. Changed code for php 7.4 warnings. Fixed mistake with the uninstall code. Replaced HTTP/1.x protocol checks with $_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'].

    adding Url parameters and the Oscid

    You shouldn't pass the full url. You should use the tep_href_link function and only provide the filename and the parameter you want to use. There is the tep_get_all_get_params function that allows you to exclude things like the session ID if it is getting picked up from the page. The session ID should only show up on the first page although, as I recall, on very old shops it would stick around for other pages. In that case, installing the Ultimate SEO url rewriter will fix that.

    [Addon] Store Times BS

    You asked what the code meant, which is what I answered. If the file is missing, that is an issue with the addon. I can't help with that. But some addons get uploaded as partial changes so if there is an earlier version you may want to check it to see if the file is there. If not, maybe someone else knows the answer. If this addon is no longer supported or you can't find the answer, you might want to look at the Store Mode addon.

    PayPal App with osCommerce 2.2-MS2

    @bholiandYes, it will work fine in that version. Just be sure to follow the installation instructions closely.
  5. Hi @valquiria23Yes, that is valid code. However, it should not be needed. Please check your language file, like english.php, to make sure there is a statement to define CHARSET. If there is and if it is blank change it to have UTF-8, like this define('CHARSET', 'utf-8'); It it is already there, check your includes/application_top.php file, if this is for a pre-Phoenix shop, and make sure the code to include this addon comes after the code to load the languages. If both of the above are correct, then it would require troubleshooting to find the cause. The change you mentionrf should work but if your site uses accented characters be sure they are handled correctly by this addon.

    PayPal redirected to shopping_cart.php

    @chuntseTrying to troubleshoot this problem from the code will probably not get you anywhere. I can assure the code is fine and works well. The problem is either in your settings in the admin or at paypal, assuming you have a working shop with ssl and no access limitations. I don't have a fix for you but maybe one of the following will help. For the standard module and order is created as soon as start the process. So if you never even go to paypal to pay, the complete order should appear in admin. If that is not happening, then there is something wrong with your code. In that case, double check that you have the latest app installed (V 5.018). Also make sure you have installed it correctly for your version of oscommerce. The instructions the app can be confusing so you have to be sure not to do something that is not meant for your shops version. The purpose of the PDT is to communicate with paypal. You are not supposed to have to set the auto-return option in your paypal account when the PDT is used but I've seen instances where it was needed so it is better to have that option set than not. In your admin settings, be sure the email address you are using for the standard module is the correct address for the live account. You can't mix live and sandbox credentials. If you have the cache option set in admin->Configuration, try turning it off. You should also look at the paypal log entries in admin. They can sometimes point to the reason for a failure.

    New management and osCommerce v4

    @lyonsperfI only have a passing knowledge of SAAS but like any ecommerce solution, there are downsides to it. Some of those are the server requirements, cost, loss of easy expandability and loss of data from your current shop. So while agree that @osCommerce-Officialhas apparently abandoned this package or, in the least, their lack of presence here is abysmal, I suggest you compare the negative points of such a move. I assume you have done so but just thought it worth a mention. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    [Addon] Store Times BS

    There are two lines. The first one is telling the code to load in a file named opencloz.php That file will most contain a function which the second line is executing.

    @chuntseDo you have the PDT token setting filled in in the Standards settings? Do you have auto-return set in your paypal account and, if so, is the return to https://.../checkout_process.php (assuming you are using ssl)?

    PayPal redirected to shopping_cart.php

    @chuntseIt could be a number of things. Is this a new problem? If you enable the COD payment module can you complete an order? Do you have ssl enabled for the whole site, just the checkout pages or not at all?
  11. There are many addons named Paypal Standard but only one named Paypal App. If you don't have a Paypal section in the left column of your admin, you aren't using the app. That's admin->Paypal, not in the modules section.
  12. I assumed you are using the Paypal App but that may not be the case. If you are not using it, then you should install it first. If you are using it, take a look in the log section to see if it reports any problems with the orders.
  13. That is usually caused by the paypal cert not being current. See this post.

    [Contribution] Option Types v2

    Easy Populate can handle all of the fields in the products and products_description tables. If it doesn't recognize them automatically you can easily add them by editing the file. There are instructions in the file for how to do that.
