    Jack_mcs got a reaction from Fredi in Article Manager v1.0   
    The difference is that with a blog article, customers can reply to it. So an article might be a page explaining how to use a knife. While a blog article would be about the various knifes you sell and where customer can respond with their views on which is the best one. Getting customers involved is a way of keeping them coming back. I have one client that sells baby clothes and the site has a blog article where customers can post images of their babies.

    As with most option one needs, you have to install an addon. Recover Cart Sales is the one you want. Although it needs to be updated to work in Phoenix. I planned that update but it will be a while. Maybe someone else has already done it, assuming you cannot.

    It's doubtful you will get it to work with any version higher than 5.5. I suppose if enough time was spent on it, you could rewrite it enough to get a higher version to work. But that won't do much to fix the large number of security holes in the files or its speed. You would be much better advised to replace it with the latest Phoenix version. 
    With that said, the compatibility.php and sessions.php files in the includes/functions/ directory have to be updated for the conversion to properly work. If you can find the latest RC2-A version, you can copy the files from it. Or, maybe, the ones in the 2.3.4.1 version will work. You will probably have to clear the sessions database table. And, as i recall, there are some changes needed in the includes/application_top.php file. Those are posted here somewhere in the forums so you can use google to search for upgrading an ms2 shop and may find them.
    Good luck.

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from secretmatt95 in how to let people upload images   
    You could add a note to the product page, confirmation page or wherever it makes sense, telling the customer to email the image to you.  If you sell things that don't require an image, then you should only show the message for the correct product or word the message to say it is not needed for some items. You can install my Message Box addon that will allow you to add a message to the header. That might be easier than trying to code it. Though you could edit the text for one of the modules to include the message.

    It requires code changes to convert it. The addon changes a relatively large number of core files so it would not be a quick conversion. I have a version for a later oscommerce version than the one for that addon but even it would require quite a few changes to allow it to work correctly with Phoenix. So while the addon will allow you to do what you want, it will take an experienced oscommerce programmer to properly convert it.

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from secretmatt95 in How does Options work in the Product Page   
    The colors, in this case, are handled by product attributes in admin->Catalog. Set an option, e.g. Colours, Options for each color you want and then create the attribute for the product.
    For additional images, the exact procedure varies with your version of oscommerce but there should be a way to add it in the product edit page, unless your shop is very old.

    It will stop them from entering names longer than 15 characters. That doesn't stop the form from working but even if it did, their scripts would just be changed to enter a name of 14 characters.
    If the names have code in them, Google Recaptcha may stop them but may not, depending on what it is. Install Honey Pot and it will catch all such accounts.

    As the name of the addon states, this is for a Phoenix shop.It may work in a Frozen shop but you will need to copy that function from the shop side to the admin's general.php file. Copy the whole thing from the line I mentioned to the closing }.
    If it still doesn't work, there are older versions of the addon that will work in your shop.

    Yes, it is possible. As mentioned, I haven't tried it so there may be something else needed to make it work in oscommerce.  But there are many examples of it on the web. Here is one you can probably use.

    The code for the dropdown will ignore the image so adding it to the array won't help. I think changing this line
    'text' => $manufacturers['manufacturers_name']); to this should work though I haven't tested it.
    'text' => $manufacturers['manufacturers_image'] . ' ' . $manufacturers['manufacturers_name']);

    Good catch on the database error. I do apologize for the problems it caused. The previous versions used INFORMATION_PAGES_SEO_XREF_USE_UL' but it was changed to INFORMATION_PAGES_SEO_FOOTER_XREF_USE_UL' to allow handling the bod id's easier. And I see now that IO forgot to mention that as part of the update.
    Regarding the position of the box, the answer depends on how the recently viewed addon is placing the code. This addon is using a hook for that box. The only way hooks are sortable are by their names so if that addon uses a hook, you could do some renaming to get them placed as you want. But if it is using a module, you can't do it.

    If you did a new installation, then the database should be correct. But if you did an update, you may have to run the install script twice, depending on the version. On the second run, or maybe the first one, there will be a button that says run with reset. Click on that and any new differences will be applied.

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from valquiria23 in Where to buy templates for Phoenix?   
    For the most part, templates have a different meaning nowadays as compared to five or so years ago. The following is all that is needed to get a unique look, though some steps may not be simple, depending on your experience level.
    Install whatever addons you need to change appearances. Image sliders are popular in many templates but there are many other addons that will add unique features to the site. Change the layout of the modules to give it a unique look. Like only one column for infoboxes, or none at all.  Change the colors of the shop to your liking. This can mostly be done via css files. The trick is in finding which class to change. With Phoenix, you can make all of the above changes fairly easily and, maybe, without any code changes. This is why you don't see template shops selling templates. It just isn't worth their time to make css changes and provide some images, in my opinion.
    You may need to make code changes in some situations, like not showing the breadcrumb or infoboxes on the home page but show them on other pages. But you can pretty much change the complete appearance of a shop with the above three steps.

    Hi Jack, @Jack_mcs
    ok, I managed to fix it.
    The FROZEN file: /admin/all_customers.php is missing a line of code:
    add :
    require ('includes / functions / all_customers.php');
    between lines 41 and 42.
    Thank you very much Jack for this interesting addon.
    Have a nice day

    The closing ?> is not required many times so you may not have it in some files. In that case, the instruction just means to place the code at the bottom of the file. You have make the other changes before trying that change because the code being added is looking for the other code.
    Regarding Sitemap SEO, the Frozen version should work in your shop. Sitemap SEO is an on-page sitemap. It is useful for the search engines as well as people. But you should install the Google Sitemap too since it is meant just for the search engines.
    As I recall Gold did not have much code with regards to SEO so I suggest you also install Header Tags SEO.
    And Information Pages SEO helps quite a bit with targeting specific keywords.

    First, take a look at admin->Modules->Action Recorder for the login module. You can set the time between tries as well as how many tries. 
    Second, in the cm_login_form.php file, after 
    $email_address = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['email_address']); $password = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['password']); add this
    if (substr_count($email_address, '@') > 1) { $error = true; } else { and find
    } if ($error == true) { and change to 
    } } if ($error == true) { The above changes will prevent attacks where the spammer tries to enter multiple email addresses. I don't know if a spammer would try that on a login page but it won't hurt to add it just in case.

    That is defined in the database so you must not have ran the database script with the reset option. Do that and the error should go away.
    I can't help you with getting a certain editor to work. I used the TinyMCE  addon to test it since it doesn't require any core changes and it works fine,
    For the article message showing, enter something in the Pages box. If you don't want it to show at all, enter some invalid item, like pid=999999, assuming that is not valid on your site. I'll add an off option in the next version.
