  1. Strider: I apologize for the frustration I have obviously caused you. I did search for the answer but did not find, or at leaset didn't understand, it The solution may have been mentioned 400 times but it is a very time consuming process trying to read through all of the posts trying to find such an answer. I don't mind putting forth the effort, but after hour's of looking through posts, I start to get a little dizzy. Now, as far as the "other question" you mention, I'm not sure which one that is. My problem now is that if I order a GV and use check/money order as a payment method, I don't receive the GV's number (which I realize I should not). After changing the order from pending to delivered and redeeming the GV, I still do not get an E-Mail stating the GV's number. It is entirely possible I am doing something wrong, don't have some option set correctly or just don't understand the whole process correctly. But I don't know where to look for the answers other than in these forums. Putting in even a simple search pattern can return hundreds of hits, many of which have nothing to do with my subject. So please try to understand my frustration at not being able to get it to work and feeling as if there is nowhere to turn for help. And, again, I am sorry for the bother. If I said something that offended you, or your effort with this contribution, I do apologize. I asked out of innocence, not maliciousness. Jack
  2. From what I understand, if you don't have the file then you don't need it. I don't have it on my installation either and it works. There are some problems I am having that I have not been able to get answered but hopefully someone will respond eventually. //venting mode on You are right about the docs but I've found that that is true of most of these contributions. It wouldn't be so bad if there was a better way of getting answers to the problems but it seems that once soneone has the contribution installed, they have no interest in helping others. If is a very frustrating procedure. //venting mode off Jack

    [contribution] Simple Template System (sts)

    I had installed STS-1.2 previously and it worked except for a conflict it caused with my browsers title. I had to back it out since I could not get that resolved. I thought I would try 1.8 to see if that problem was fixed. However, I cannot get this version to run at all. I made the changes to all of the relevant files but when I try to display my page, it is blank. So then I just copied all of the files in the release (except for configure.php) to my server to see if it would work at all but I get the same result. Obviously, from other posts, this contribution works. Does anyone have any thoughts as to why I can't get this version off the ground? BTW, if it matters, between installing versions 1.2 and 1.8, I installed a few other contributions listed below. I don't think they are causing the problem but thought it was worth mentioning in case there is a known compatibility problem.

  4. I've searched the forums and the above quote is the closest I have come to an answer regarding my problem. I would like to offer GV's for customers to buy and give as gifts but cannot see how to add them. I did go into admin->Vouchers/Coupons->Coupon Admin and inserted a new coupon. But I don't see any way to insert a GV. Or are they considered the same when adding them? If the above post is accurate, then it would seem that it is possible. Does anyone know how to add a GV to a stores products? Jack
  5. I finally got the contribution installed and it is working except for one problem. If I create a newsletter or E-Mail, save and lock it, and then choose edit, the body text is not displayed. The title is present and if I select preview the body is displayed but not when I try to edit. Is there a way around this? Jack
  6. Can someone give me some help with adding the database? I have phpmyadmin installed and have made some changes to it for other contributions. But the instructions for this one , makes no sense to me at all. I've signed into phpmyadmin and clicked on SQL but I don't see an import button. Can someone help me please? Jack
  7. I'm am trying to install this package. But the part about changing the database has me totally baffled. The instructions state: 2. copy tab.sql to /tmp dir on your server and create database table 'tab' (file: 'tab.sql'). cd /tmp mysql -u USER -p OSCOMMERCE_DATABASE < ./tab.sql I have PhpMyAdmin installed and the db backed up. After that I am at a complete loss as to what the above is telling me to do. Where do I create the /tmp dir - in PhpMyAdmin? Is the starment "create database table 'tab' (file: 'tab.sql')." saying to issue the create command or just to type this in somewhere. And as for the cd /tmp, where do I type this in? If anyone has a clue as to how to do this I would truly appreciate your help. BTW, the whole purpose of installing this is to have tabs on my pages. Is this the best package to reach that end? Jack

    Are you asking how to change the actual text that is displayed? If so, that has to be done in the files themselves. STS is strictly a method to allow you to position where items are on the screen. Is this isn't what you asking, could you be more specific? Jack

    With STS installed, my browser displays $title instead of the name of my site. If I remove the STS files, it displays the correct title. Anyone know how to fix this? Jack

    First off, excellent job Brian. Thanks for doing this. I've installed the latest version at Test Webpage. The problem I am having is that the height of the navigation bar that holds Home is to big. You can see the difference between it and the size of the cell in the section (like categories). Is there a way to adjust this. I have it set to the size of the font in the template. A second problem is with the alignment of the images for the section headers. I changed the left side by placing them in a table to allow me to have control over the spacing between them. The right side has not been changed. The problem is that, on the left side, the corner_right.gif is placed too high. Any idea how to fix this? Jack

    Controlling height and alignment

    I apologize for the post. Just realized it should have been added to the STS thread, not posted as new.

  13. I have a number of categories. I thought to create an EP file for each category and then just upload that particular file. When I do this though, some of the items that have already been added to the db are seen as new items and placed in the wrong categories. The EP file is set up correctly. All I did was download the working full file, duplicate it and then deleted items that I didn't want in it. Then saved it as a particular categories file. If I just upload the full file, I don't have this problem. Does anyone know if this is possible? It would be much easier for me when entering new items into the files. Jack

    Help with Excel Import

    I have no idea. The site was setup by the hosting service when I registered it so I would guess the answer, from the ones you offered, is "cPanel or other Hosting providers control panel software that has MySQL Admin tools." I've looked around the site and can't find anything that looks like an interface although I did find where it says they are using MySQL 4.0.14-nt for the database.
  15. In the instructions for excel import it states: 3. Run SQL query on your database administration tool: ALTER TABLE `categories` ADD `categories_root` INT( 11 ) NOT NULL; Would someone explain what this means? I don't seem to have the sql querry script. Jack
