    Thanks for pointing out the typo. It has been that way from when it was first added but was never noticed.

    Yes, that is the correct one. Once it is installed there will be an option to update it to the latest version. You may also have to update the cert file. See this thread for that.

    This addon is meant to inform the shop owner when someone who isn't marked as valid logs in to the admin. This can be used to catch hackers, past employees or just anyone that shouldn't be in the shops admin.
    This addon will work in any version of Phoenix. It may work in Frozen though the hook may need to be altered or added.

    A new version has been uploaded with these changes:
    Changed the code in the HTS display module in admin to prevent php warnings. Changed the code in the HTS test file in admin to prevent php warnings. Changed the code in admin/categories.php to automatically fill in the stock SEO fields. Found by @alix32. Changed code on the keywords page to fix errors in the position code. Changed code in the test file to fix errors. Changed code in the Version Checker for php warning. Corrected link in Version Checker that gave incorrect results. Corrected the install instructions. Found by @geoffreywalton. Moved the keyword search handler to a hook in Phoenix. Removed some unused defines left over from a previous version. Notes:
    1 - The only changes are for the -14 and -15 Phoenix versions. Though the -14 changes will apply to some previous versions.
    2 - Don't rely on the change instructions for the categories.php file. Due to the changes to that file with each Phoenix release, it is just not feasible to keep the install instructions updated. Use a compare program to find the needed changes.

    No, there isn't I apologize for the mistake. I was thinking of Easy Populate. For this addon, there shouldn't be any reason it would fail with that many products when ran as a cron job. It might timeout if ran via admin, depending upon your hosting accounts timeout limit. So try running it as a cron  job to see if it completes.

    It depends on your shops version. The ability to display banners was limited in older versions of oscommerce and relied on manually changing the code. Addons were developed for some that allowed changing them in admin. So you will need to figure out how the banners are displayed to know how to change them. If your admin has a modules section, check it for a module that displays banners. If not, then it is problem in your files. The code was in the footer by default but it was possible to move it to the header, which is where yours is displaying.

    The changes in Phoenix will sometimes change the code to where it is no longer recognized by the code in addons. For example, a function may be moved to a class so the code in the addon can't find the function any longer. There's no way for developers to plan for this so we just have to react after the fact. But as soon as we upload a new version of the addon, the code in Phoenix changes and breaks the addon again. Testing the addon with the new version of Phoenix, identifying the new problems, fixing the code and then uploading the new version of an addon is not a small job so upgrading can't be done for every version of Phoenix. Unfortunately, there's just no way around it.

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from Smoky Barnable 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.

    It's because they changed the minimum width and height to 6x4. Deleting those lines probably cause their default to be used but you could leave them in and change the sizes accordingly.

    Jack_mcs reacted to philip71 in Upgrading to the latest version   
    I did apply to the Phoenix Club yesterday before I posted here, I just haven't received a response yet. I do appreciate the work that has been done to update osCommerce. Still, restricting simple upgrade instructions to those 700 members seems counterintuitive to growing the osCommerce/Phoenix community imho.

    View Counter hasn't been changed to work with that version of Phoenix so I would expect errors or warnings.

    Jack_mcs got a reaction from BadMonkeyMusic in Question   
    There's not a way to do it in the stock shop without changes and I'm not aware of an addon for that purpose. What I think you will need to do is add a new field to the product page that contains how it should be shipped. Then the shipping modules that you use would need to be edited to check that field and enable or disable them based on it.

    I verified this isn't working when updating. It does work for new products. It is a mistake in the code but I don't have a fix at this point. I will get to it as soon as I can. Thank you for reporting it.
