  1. You could try my Easier Attributes addon. It isn't complete but it does allow searching the attributes quickly.
  2. If the demo works then Harold must have fixed that module, which means the problem is on your end.
  3. I'm not familiar with Modular Product Page so I can't say where the code might be. But it has to be calling the database similar to what is in the instructions so you could try searching your files for it. If you still can't fine it, you can ask in the support thread for that addon.
  4. The uninstall only removes the database changes for this addon. The files are not touched. When you use the uninstall option. there will still be an entry in admin->Configuration for SEO URL's until you refresh the page since the uninstall doesn't force a reset of admin. On the shop side, the database changes are only made if something has changed, not including cache. It is possible for parts of databases to become corrupt. So if you suspect that, using the uninstall option will remove everything so you can try again.
  5. The uninstall option will remove all database changes for the addon. They will be added back in when the shop is loaded. If you just want to clear cache, the reset option should be used,
  6. Check to make sure you have the function for this addon added to the general.php file in admin.
  7. As mentioned previously, I don't think that module works in the App. Using the previous version does work, as you've found so you will need to use It until the app is fixed.
  8. Many things can cause that error. The easy way, if the host is a good one, is to ask them what the error is. If that isn't possible, see if there is an error_log file in the admin directory. If there is, it may contain the reason for the failure. You can also try removing the .htaccess file in the admin directory to see if the problem goes away. If it does, then that file has an invalid path or some other problem. It needs to be added back in or the admin may not be secure/
  9. Nothing has changed in that regard. If it is a new install, you have to make the changes to the tools file. Sounds like you missed that step.
  10. The names of the paypal options can be confusing but for taking payments on the site (instead of having the customer go to paypal), there are two options most use: Paypal Pro and Paypal Advance. There are main differences with those: Pro is $30/month plus fees and you get virtual terminal while Advance is $5/month and no virtual terminal. In the paypal app, the Pro option is performed by the Paypal Pro DP module and the Advance option by the Paypal Pro Hosted module. They are both available the US. The Pro module always works (any version). The Advance module is the one in question. I know for sure that the older, non-app, version for Advance did work. So it sounds like the problem is with your paypal account, assuming that is what you tried. It sounds like you have setup the Pro account at paypal, not the Advance account - they are different. Other than the Standard module, to use any of the other paypal modules requires a special account to be setup at paypal. So you need to decide on what option from paypal you want to use, create that account if needed and then enable the module that matches it.
  11. @@robinwarren As mentioned previously, this isn't a completed addon. You can control the basic attributes in the attributes section and most, I think, of the options section works but the values and settings are nowhere near done. Regarding the order of the attributes, that has always been an issue with attributes in oscommerce. MySQL doesn't guarantee the order data is returned in so it doesn't matter how you input them. They might be in order one time but not another. The way to fix that is to install one of the attribute sorting addons. The Attributes Manager has that built-in so it is the best choice since it also allows controlling them from the product edit page. As far as using this is concerned, if you need values added then create those in the old attributes section, until this one is working. In the attributes tab of this addon, when you select a category that has products, those products will be listed. If you want to add an attributes to a product, or a number of products, fill in the items below the product (option, value,etc.). When the minimum number of required things have been selected, a save button will appear and you can click that to add the attribute. Or, when you select a product click on the Show in Use button to see the attributes assigned to that product. You can then edit any of those. I hope this helps.
  12. You don't need the sandbox for the hosted option so I suggest trying it in live mode. If it fails, paypal can tell you what the failure is as long as the attempt is reaching them, which you said it was.. Usually when you call them you get first level support and they are just reading canned answers. If they can't tell you what the failure is, ask for a higher level tech. It is difficult to troubleshoot a problem like this without knowing what the failure is. Also, I do recall installing the first version of the app on a BS shop a few years ago and it wouldn't work. I then installed the stand-alone version of it and that one worked. So, worse case, you could try that.
  13. Usually when the iframe doesn't show it is because the paypal account is not setup correctly. This video may be useful with that. Also, Paypal Express is required when using that module so if you haven't set that up, I suggest trying it first.
  14. I'd have to see that to believe it, unless, of course, you are talking about paying google with adwords, but that is not what we are talking about. What you are saying, in effect, is that you can control what google does. I've never heard of anyone being able to do that but maybe you are the first. But even if you could somehow manage that, the links would not be ranked in any way, other than being at the end of the list, unless it was for some very unique and useless keyword. If that was possible, it would wreak havoc with googles ranking. All you would have to do is create a new site and have it rank above a site that has been active for 10 years. It just can't happen. Googles unwritten policy is to wait at least 6 months before seriously ranking a site. They do that to get by the ones that just want a quick site. See this post by ahref for some interesting results.
  15. At one point that module didn't work and Harold said he would fix it eventually. I don't know if that was ever done. But you can test it here. If it works, then it is something in your shop. If it fails, then it must still be broken.
