  1. @HeCaresThis thread on upgrading may help a little. But I think you will find you need someone experienced with converting a shop as @ArtcoIncmentioned. If done correctly, you won't lose any data, like customers, orders and products, nor any SEO and Links..

    Please help me with login problem

    To be clear, did you make the changes to the includes/configure file? I see the double slash still there that Phil mentioned. That should be fixed. I successfully created an account on your site. I then used a different browser and was able to login. So if this is an intermittent problem, which it seems to be, it will be difficult to troubleshoot in a support thread like this. All I can suggest is to try various things. For example, see if it only fails in certain browsers. If you have the master password addon installed and if you know of a customer account that can't login, try logging into that account with the master password and see if you can get it to fail. Other than that, I can't think of anything else to try at this time.

    No, I meant turn off the url rewriter. I don't know which you have installed so I wasn't specific. But in admin->Configuration there should be a link for SEO URLs or SEO 5, or something similar. Click on that and you will see the option to turn it off.
  4. You should be able to just upload the seo.class.php file. There is a change to the code in the application_top.php file, which you found, that needs to be made to prevent warnings with php 7 but no other changes are needed.

    The session ID (osCsid) should go away after you click the first link but it isn't doing that. That is probably due to an old version of the url rewriter that is installed. The problem you describe can usually be traced to the session ID and since it works for you if you remove it from the url, that addon seems most likely to be the problem. Try turning it off in admin->Configuration and see if the problem goes away. Note that older versions of Ultimate SEO and most versions, if not all, of SEO 5 won't turn off completely so this test may not be conclusive.

    ELI5: Hooks vs. Modules (Bootstrap Edition)

    @SuperPower09I didn't notice you mentioned Bootstrap 4. My comment about existing addons doesn't apply to it. If you are just playing around, it is fine to use that version but for a production shop, it should be the BS 3 version as @MrPhil mentioned.
  7. A new version has been uploaded. Itjust fixes the problem with the ConnectDB introduced in the last version. If you have applied the fix mentioned in this thread, you don't need the update. But if you want to apply it, just upload the includes/classes/seo.class.php file.

    ELI5: Hooks vs. Modules (Bootstrap Edition)

    In the product_info.php file, you will see a command to get_content. That loads in all of the modules for that page. You can control the sort order of them within that section. But it doesn't load hooks. With hooks, you have to add code to load them in. They are easier to write than modules but can't be sorted with the modules. So which you use depends on what you want to do. If you just want to add a banner to a page that doesn't change, a hook might be the best choice. But if you want to be able to control it a little more easily, the module would be better. But before you do any of that, look at already completed addons. The jssor slider will do what you want and save you a lot of time coding. And there are quote a few other banner-type modules beside that one.

    ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    That is a known problem I introduced in the last update. I will get a fixed version updated. The problem was mentioned in the support thread for that addon. This thread is not for that addon.
  10. Then in that case, Information Page SEO is the only choice.

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    It should be the other way around. There is a setting to ignore products if the quantity is less than 1. If it were really failing like you say, none of your products would be in the feed, assuming they have a quantity. It might be that you have that option set so when you change the quantity to 0 the failing product was ignored. If that is the case, I suggest creating a new product you can test with. Just enter a short name, price and quantity. Run the feed and make sure the new product shows up in it. If it does, copy some of the things from the failing product, like its description, into the working one and run the feed again. Somewhere along the way the test product should fail.

    @Adam_MaynardTry changing these define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', ''); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/'); define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', ''); define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', ''); to these define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/'); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/'); define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/'); define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/'); If that doesn't help, please answer all of the other questions asked.
  13. @fantomenIf you are looking for addon that is just plug n' play, that won't happen due to what is needed to make it work. Information Pages SEO is ready for CE but it requires a few code changes. You might also want to look at Text Master. It is a very simple install but you will need to either edit the definitions or install the compatibility addon.

    Please post your includes/configure.php file here (without the database credentials at the bottom of it) so someone can take a look. Also, is this a new site or was it working before? If it was working before, has anything changed, like moving hosts or installing addons?

    Gift Vouchers Secure

    This is a new version of the long-standing Gift Vouchers addon. It is named "secure" because the previous versions, at least the ones I am familiar with, have a large number of security holes in them. All of those have been plugged in this version and other changes made to further the security. This version also has features other versions don't have. Here are some of the major points of this version: Apply to specific customers. Apply to specific products. Apply to specific categories. Apply to specific manufacturers. Include or Exclude options for products, categories and manufacturers. Date is set by jquery date picker so it doesn't expire. Show only certain coupons in admin display. Sortable columns in admin display. This can be used to replace existing installations but not directly. There are some changes that are needed beyond a normal installation. I have documented those as much as I can but due to the number of versions of Gift Vouchers, I can't cover them all. This version is mainly written for the CE version with the modular checkout addon by @raiwainstalled. It will work in other versions but the instructions are not complete, though using a compare program should work.

    Gift Vouchers Secure

    That's not a clear answer, though you probably wouldn't know that. The official version uses that number but so do some of the CE versions, and the installation is different for those two. Do you recall where you downloaded the package from - here or github? In either case, the instructions are not very good, I'm sorry to say. If you used the install from the Version_CE directory, that assumes you have the modular checkout addon installed. If you used the Version_2.3.4 install, that is probably the one you want but the instructions are sparse. In my defense, I hurried the release because the addon it is meant to replaces would not work in 2019. I will be improving upon the instructions when I can find the time. I do apologize to you, and to anyone else, that have problems due to the instructions.

    Fake accounts

    You could. But how will you know if the IP belongs to a legitimate customer or not?
  18. It is possible but not the best way to do it. The idea is to replace those files with a dynamic page. See the Information box in the footer of my site. Almost all of the links in it have been created with the Information Pages addon. If you want to keep the hard-files, or have others you want to use, there is a one-line change you can make to those files to control the text in admin. So, technically, if you used that method it would be the same as it is with the addon you mentioned, though that would be extra work for no good reason,.
  19. @fantomenIt won't work in your shop because it needs the filenames file which does not exist. I suggest you try Information Pages instead. It is CE compatible and an easier install.

    Fake accounts

    If you are comfortable changing the code, find this in the includes/functions/honeypot.php file tep_db_query("insert into " . $db_table . " set " . $insert_sql_data); and add this above it if (MODULE_HEADER_TAGS_HONEYPOT_CREATE_ACCOUNT_NOTIFICATION == 'True') { HoneypotNotify($cust); } You can add // before the two lines farther above that read HoneypotNotify($cust); That will give you an email for all accounts that are created.

    Fake accounts

    When you say they are getting through, do you mean new accounts are being created by the same IP or are they all individual accounts? As mentioned, one account per IP will always be possible.
  22. Jack_mcs

    Fake accounts

    It uses a database table.
  23. Jack_mcs

    Fake accounts

    You may not. The average size of the root's .htaccess file is under 10-20 KB, in my experience. Adding the code to block the IP's of multiple countries might increase it to 50 -80 KB. That's still a small file as file size goes but having to load it on every click on a busy site can make a difference. On slower sites, you may not see it. You can run a speed test (I prefer gtmetrix.com) with the blocking code removed and another with it added to see if changes much. I would expect a second or two at most.
  24. Jack_mcs

    Fake accounts

    That will work but the number of IP's you need to enter, especially if it is for more than one country, causes the .htaccess file to be quite large. And since that file has to be loaded and checked on every page load, that can slow the site down quite a bit. A better solution is to see if your host will install the GeoIP package. That allows the server to manage the blocks and is more efficient. If they won't, then install View Counter and use its country blocking option.
  25. Jack_mcs

    Fake accounts

    It stores the IP and if they try to create a second account in a certain amount of time, it prevents the account from being created. You can test this by trying to create two accounts. Actually, you should do that because the displayed message may not be what you want to show. The code doesn't do anything else with the IP. I thought about adding code to automatically ban it but if, for example, you have the account limit set to 3 and then a regular customer forgets they have an account and decides to create another one, they would be blocked. So that is a dangerous option for the create account page.
