  1. I'm trying to upload a product list but a lot of the products and descriptions have quote characters in them. It seems to throw things off. Are there any recommendations?
  2. OOo on Linux doesn't seem to be forceable. But for future reference, I managed to get it to work by opening the file in gEdit and copying/pasting into Calc. It recognized the tabs just fine. Whew.
  3. Can't specify that in the open dialogue, i actually renamed it to .xls, and i'm opening it in the spreadsheet app first. Worst case, I'll have to send this to a windows machine, open it there, save it differently, then send it back, but I was hoping to avoid that :-(.
  4. A quick Q, if I may: I'm running on Fedora Core 3 with 1.1.2. Unfortunately, when I try to open an EasyPopulate file, insists on opening it in the Word-clone. I guess it doesn't see or appreciate the tabs :-). Anyone know how to force an open in Calc? Thanks.
  5. Hi, I was helping a web programming and database class with OS COMMERCE as their class project. Each student is getting introduced to OSC, PHP and MySQL database programming. The class has gone much better than expected, and the students would like to code a contribution. Their experience with e-commerce is pretty limited, but I thought I would solicit this forum for contribution suggestions -- anybody have a contribution on their wishlist that would be appropriate for such a programming project? The instructor and I would be happy to review suggestions and come up with one or two for the class to code and contribute back to the community. Thanks.. Jason
  6. I'm working up some specs this weekend. I'll try to post some design ideas and requirements. If anybody has any thoughts, suggestions, ideas, requirements themselves, please post them here or email me through the forum. I can imagine how *I* want this to work for my own purpose, but I would very much like to develop a general contribution.
  7. I'm specifically not interested in forking the OSC project. I'd like to think one could produce an "express" module (express.php?) that incorporated some basic logic into a minimalist ordering experience. Perhaps, in addition, we could produce a rss_order.php module that permitted tertiary replication of ordering properties for a given product.
  8. This query comes after some preliminary thinking .. I admit I have a lot more thinking to do on this. Anyway, my interest is in developing an osCommerce "Express" contribution. What this would be is basically a 1-3 page 1-3 item express ordering system. I use osCommerce right now but I have certain other commercial projects in mind that would benefit from some of the back end options build-into OSC (like UPS ordering calculations) but which otherwise, in my mind, would benefit from presenting one product item, the ordering form, and that's it. Anyone else have any interest in a project like this? I have the technical skills to develop this, but if there were other interested parties, I'm very much open to collaboration. Cheers, Jason
  9. This is pretty much exactly what I've been looking for. I'm gonna check pricing and if it works out, I'll order a batch and modify the invoice and packing slip scripts to position the ship-to label properly. If anybody has already done that work for other labels, I would love to have a head start :-).
  10. This is a fantastic submission. We used to call this the "pulse" report back at another e-commerce company. Anyway, from the installation instructions: 2) ADD the following line in admin/includes/application_top.php define('FILENAME_SALES_REPORT', 'stats_sales_report.php'); ..needs to be changed to: 2) ADD the following line in admin/includes/application_top.php define('FILENAME_STATS_SALES_REPORT', 'stats_sales_report.php'); Then it works just fiiiiiiiiiine. Also, I might add a "bi-weekly" report, to coincide with some of the third-party payment system schedules. Thanks!
  11. I got the coupon mod installed and so far it looks really good. One little question: is there a plan to evolve a coupon set into a finite set of individual coupons each with their individual redemption codes? Cheers.
  12. Hi. Okay, I added the creditclass_GV mods to the site and I was starting on the coupon mods. The first thing I did was the sql table mods, and this is the error I got back: Error SQL-query : CREATE TABLE cc_coupons ( cid int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment, name varchar(32) NOT NULL default '', description varchar(128) default NULL, code varchar(32) NOT NULL default '', amount int(5) NOT NULL default '0', type char(1) NOT NULL default 'F', min_order decimal(5,2) default NULL, startdate datetime default NULL, finishdate datetime default NULL, uses_coupon int(5) NOT NULL default '0', uses_user int(5) NOT NULL default '0', products varchar(256) default NULL, categories varchar(256) default NULL, customers text default NULL, use_count int(5) NOT NULL default '0', date_created datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00', date_modified datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00', PRIMARY KEY (cid), UNIQUE KEY code (code) ) TYPE=MyISAM MySQL said: Too big column length for column 'products' (max = 255). Use BLOB instead Back I'm running the 9/12 or 9/14 snapshot. Thanks.
  13. obvious question that may have been answered elsewhere, but: This coupon contrib is based on the credit class, which has this note: "This is based on a July snapshoy before the new breadcrumb logic was intoduced." Does that mean it's not readily integratable with recent snapshots? I just want to make sure I'm not missing out on something. Thanks!
  14. i've been on the same hunt as you for a long time. i *found* the form recently, the problem is i found it when i placed an order with a competitor to see how they fulfilled things. not sure I can rightly send them an email asking them where they got their form. :D it was literally a blank 2-part form with a label area cut out in the upper right quadrant of the page. That would be MUCH easier to align properly. If only I could find the darn thing!
