    pete2007 reacted to Jack_mcs in Using PHP 7.1 with Osc 2.3.4 is it safe?   
    It's not a question of whether it is safe or not. The higher versions of php usually fix security holes in previous ones and shouldn't introduce any in the shop that weren't already there. The real question is if it works or not. You should thoroughly test all parts of the shop to make sure they work correctly, especially when it involves addons. If they do, then you can stay on 7.2.

    Every v2.x release is being sunsetted, including v2.4. Someone is welcome to continue development through the Community Edition program. My focus is 100% on v3.
    All Community Edition releases will have their own support area in the forum and their own version in the Marketplace. Linking to the releases on our downloads page is just the start - it is planned to have dedicated pages for each release so their features can be showcased.

    Yes, at Github.
    1.0.0.0 to 1.0.0.2: https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/compare/v1.0.0.0...1.0.0.2
    1.0.0.2 to 1.0.0.3: https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/compare/1.0.0.2...1.0.0.3
    They will be made aware as CE releases use the same update mechanism from v2.3. This means the update procedure is manual for v2.3 based CE releases (the architecture does not support online updates). Automatic updates will first arrive with v3 and v3 based CE releases.
    Community Edition maintainers have the ability to push out a release to the website without my intervention. In fact, the website automatically checks Github once every hour to see if a new release has been pushed out at Github and automatically updates the download page and posts a news announcement if one was posted at Github.
    This will be addressed when Community Editions are officially announced.
     
    If they want to stay on PHP 5.6 they can with their current installation. If it runs perfectly today, it will run perfectly tomorrow, and there are active developers in the forum that can help when problems arise. If they want to move to another release or platform, they can't stay on PHP 5.6.
    There is a lot of excitement when releases are pushed out, however your current installation is not going to burn if you don't upgrade immediately.

    Good old SA! Great when it works properly but a monster sometimes when it starts scoring high on things and then trying to work out what is triggering those high scores. Glad you got it sorted.
    There are 3 mailchimp modules/addons already. One has 360 in its name made 10 years ago which relies on a deprecated mailchimp API so doesnt work anymore. There are two others one made 2 years ago and another which is v2 of the same addon updated about 15 days ago.
    I found those usable 2 modules/addons lacking and the issue I have with those is that they are essentially javascript plugins that only send the information to mailchimp and doesnt record it in you store or vice versa. So when someone registers on a store and ticks the newsletter box or a pre-registered user goes to their account and tick/unticks to subscribe those actions wont be registered with mailchimp.
    This leaves you then with compliance issues as the user will say for example that they unsubscribe via your store but you'll still be sending them emails because mailchimp doesnt know they have unsubscribed.
    The addon I'll be adding updates the store and mailchimp at the same time so that the newsletter status of customers in the store matches that in mailchimp and vice versa. I need to clean up my code and make it easier to install first but I'll add it once done.

    Your host ought be able to tell you if you're on some spam blacklist. They may even tell you that they added you because you sent out too many emails in a short period. They don't want their servers listed as spammers, either.
    It's fine to email newsletters from your shop's domain, but it should probably be left to a proper bulk email application that knows how to obey host limits for per-minute, per-hour, per-day mailings. It should also try to distribute evenly and at a polite rate to major email systems like gmail, hotmail, yahoo, etc., so they don't feel overwhelmed and report you as a spammer. Do you really need to get all 5000 emails out within one hour? How about over 2 days or so? Needless to say, all mass mailings must be explicit "opt in", and should include a reminder that the recipient signed up to receive them, and a reminder on how to easily unsubscribe. The latter two items reduce the chances that a recipient will report you as a spammer, simply to stop receiving mass mailings from you.

    Perform a reverse blacklist list search (type that into Google and you'll get loads to test on) using the IP address your site is hosted on.
    We ripped out the newsletter functionality from our osC installs years ago. It wasn't a bad idea 10+ years ago but it's way to easy to get blacklisted now. Recipients are fickle and lazy and they'll mark any email they don't like as spam.  Also they're non-compliant, at least the stock osC on the homepage isn't. It doesn't offer an unsubscribe link in the email.
    Use mailchimp, it's free for up-to 2500 recipients I think and rules out the possibility of being blacklisted.
    Full mailchimp integration is a module (already have it running on several stores) I'm planning on releasing if I do decide to become an ambassador.

    @pete2007 it sure is (but don't tell burt I told you this or he'll get all "Stack Overflow" on me!!).
    Again, anyone else reading this, this is method is specific for pete2007's installation which doesn't make use of Header Tags modules nor $oscTemplate->getBlocks('footer_scripts'); and everything is hardcoded in template_bottom.php
    In ext/jquery/main.js find:
    /* BOF Prevent multiple form submissions from multiple clicks on checkout_confirmation.php */ if($('form[name=checkout_confirmation]').length > 0){ $('form[name=checkout_confirmation]').submit(function(){ Replace with:
    /* BOF Prevent multiple form submissions from multiple clicks on checkout_confirmation.php and contact_us.php */ if($('form[name=checkout_confirmation], form[name=contact_us]').length > 0){ $('form[name=checkout_confirmation], form[name=contact_us]').submit(function(){ And then just for the sake of completeness find:
    /* EOF Prevent multiple form submissions from multiple clicks */ And replace with:
    /* EOF Prevent multiple form submissions from multiple clicks on checkout_confirmation.php and contact_us.php */ The only caveat is that it will only display one message i.e. "Loading please wait", might have been nicer to have "Sending please wait" for the contact form.  But if you want you could change it to just "Please wait" which would apply equally to both forms nicely.

    It is a redirect so just test this by removing commeting out code in .htaccess file. Then check if it works. Also check if your normal admin login works, if it does then remove the new admin and clear cache and sessions and carfully make new admin and check again.

    Well talk to your host, many like Go *******dy  will have limits set for number of emails sent per min/hour/day.....
    So deppending on how many you sent you may have been black listed. Talk to you host and find out.
    Personaly never been a big fan of ecarts beeing used for mass mailing too risky as you may get your domain black listed, much better to use a proper email marketing tool or services, mail "monkey"  😊 or some other you have many to select from, they are designed for this type of mass mailling work.

    Hi @pete2007
    Thank you for sending the files in a PM.  I've placed my response here so that if anyone else is in the same situation as you then they can see the solution also.
    Your store setup:
    Doesn't use or load jQuery UI jQuery and javascript is executed from includes/template_bottom.php and not in the <head> tag. Because of this, the script cannot be added directly to checkout_confirmation.php because jQuery loads after the contents of this page. Your site makes good use of a ext/jquery/main.js file instead of inline/on-page Javascript so we'll use this to house the new script. Your store submit button doesn't have any classes applied so no need to copy them to the new dynamic button before hiding the submit button once clicked. Please backup the ext/jquery/main.js file before making changes and be sure to test the checkout_confirmation.php page after making the changes as I've not been able to test this.  You may also need to clear your temporary internet files/cache if your browser doesn't detect the additional code to the file immediately.
    In ext/jquery/main.js
    Go to the very bottom of the file after the closing }); and press return twice to create some spacing.
    Add the following, save and upload.
    /* BOF Prevent multiple form submissions from multiple clicks on checkout_confirmation.php */ if($('form[name=checkout_confirmation]').length > 0){ $('form[name=checkout_confirmation]').submit(function(){ var btnLoadingTxt = 'Loading Please Wait'; var confirmationForm = $(this); confirmationForm.find('button[type=submit]').each(function (index) { $(this).clone(false).attr('id', 'disabledBtn').prop('disabled', true).text(btnLoadingTxt).insertBefore($(this)); $(this).hide(); confirmationForm.prepend($(this)); }); }); } /* EOF Prevent multiple form submissions from multiple clicks */ Because we can't add this code directly to the checkout_confirmation.php page if left as it was it would attempt to execute on every page load.  It would only work on the checkout_confirmation.php page but there's still no point taking extra resources to attempt to execute when not needed so I've added code to check if the confirmation form is present before execution.

    pete2007 reacted to John W in Newsletter Manager, send from a different email?   
    Yes, that is possible. You probably want to look at using something like Mailchimp or the like.  Little searching here and on Google will yeild a lot of info.  Keep in mind that the average hosting account will limit how much email you can send and you don't want to get flagged by Yahoo, Gmail, etc... for sending spam.  Send the same email to several yahoo accounts and you'll get greylisted and maybe worse.  I think Burt has a Mailchimp addon that might be easy to use.
