  1. It is part of the supporters code so folks that are behind the project get it automatically and the pieces fit together nicely. Others will have to find their own way, hence my suggestion to you. Dan
  2. Fredi for the slider you might want to check with Jack...he has a jessor slider but I don't know if he updated it to work with the Advert Mgr or not. I use his slider on an older site with the also old banner manager and it works well. If he hasn't updated it, he might have it on his list of things to do. Dan
  3. You may also find these videos, that Gary posted, helpful if you haven't seen them already. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNn-E2HORmQ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrOacTp4Pyg Dan
  4. Fredi...were you using it in an earlier version of Phoenix or is that a new install of Advert Manager with Dan
  5. The table defines were removed a long time ago so you should be able to just replace... with... Dan

    Store Search Bar (BS)

    Harald is on the only one that can change it but it can always be uploaded as a new version. Dan
  7. Gary, I assume you mean withOUT a core code change? Dan
  8. I have those working and have prettied them up over the years and while they are all individual modules the routine to do accomplish that is hacked into the index page as I recall. At some point I might rework them so they are of use in Phoenix, if and when I ever get the time to look at the admin side of my shop. It certainly won't be anytime soon. Dan
  9. @ArtcoInc Sorry Malcolm I'm not going to be of much use to you on this. My admin is still running on RC2. I've made so many hacks to the core on the admin side of my shop over the years that I'm not sure where to start (not really) and it has a real low priority for me. Dan
  10. As a wise person once said.... If you are not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. Dan
  11. No one should be upset by that. It is a good thing. Shop owners and developers just need pick the version they want to use or support and go from there. You don't need to follow every update as some seem to be doing and then complain to developers that add-ons are broken. Dan
  12. I would, at least start working on updating. Frozen is getting a little long on the tooth and is sun-setted. If you're relying on any add-ons using might be your best bet. I would land there and once you get that as you like....launch it and then begin updating beyond that. Dan
  13. For me that is both fair and realistic. I have add-ons I can't live without and until they are updated the choice is update or keep those functions. My current plan is to get a live site up and running (I'm close) and then keep a development branch going that I can add updates to, both core and add-ons. Taking that to say and when it's ready to release, I'll rinse and repeat. Until the add-ons get to a point where they are not impacted by changes to the core I don't think it can be managed in any other way. If there is, I'd certainly be interested in knowing. Dan

    You don't have to update but it is a good opportunity to see the latest developments, what is planned and the support that is offered. You'll also ensure that any requests you have for help are seen by those who can help. Many of them are no longer active in the open part of this forum, or at least don't frequent it as often as they once use to. Dan

    I think there is one in the Phoenix Club where you can show your gratitude. 😀 Dan
  16. Just noticed an unusual behavior when adding a coupon code on my Phoenix build 4.2 I'm using Discount Codes version 5.1.2. It is set up so you need to login ie not guest checkout and on entering a coupon it validates okay and shows the discount check mark but doesn't update the order totals. On a second click of the apply button the page refreshes and the orders totals are updated as expected. I'm thinking it is probably an issue with the javascript or when it is being loaded. Perhaps a conflict with other javascript that is in use. I also noticed if I hover over the apply button and look at the url...it usually shows https://www.website.ca/_ but on the first page load no URL is shown. To work correctly I think it just needs a page refresh but I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this or if it is unique to my install. Dan
  17. The only other downside I can think of is the possible impact it might have on your search engine rankings. It could result in lower/shared rankings or even penalties I really don't know. When the browsers started throwing up warnings on all none HTTPS pages, most e-commerce folks just jumped on board --- taking the easier, softer way. Everyone already had SSL certificates so why not. Good luck in whatever you decide to do. Dan
  18. Using HTTP is always going to be a security issue which is why the change was suggested. If you don't wish to do that, it's on you. Dan
  19. I guess the short answer is...its a security issue. Dan
  20. I wouldn't recommend that...these days browsers just warn about it and frighten customers away........can users actually turn off https? and if so, why would you want too? Dan
  21. It is usually recommended that you change the first line in your configure.php file to https:// as well so it's like this...have you tried that? define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://www.yoursite.com'); define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.yoursite.com'); define('ENABLE_SSL', true); Dan

    KissIT Image Thumbnailer Support

    Yeah...sorry about that. I had seen your post in that other thread and Rainers reply where he suggested you roll back to a version where KissIT Thumbnailer is working. I thought you had done that and were having trouble. I didn't realize you were still trying to get this to work on, where it probably won't, until he has a chance to update the contribution. Knowing Rainer he will likely update this fairly quick so if I were you I'd just put this contribution aside and work on some other aspect of your build until he has a chance to do so. Dan

    Autoloader question

    I don't know about that but you'll certainly be missing out on a lot of good information and the support, that is provided there. Dan

    Autoloader question

    If you're trying to change the shopping cart class file on the shop side it is in the folder...includes/system/versioned/ Depending on what you're doing you might also be able to add your own class so it doesn't get clobbered on you in future updates. I haven't tried to do that yet but I see folks posting about it in the club. Dan

    KissIT Image Thumbnailer Support

    That is telling you that you don't have the hooks.php file in that directory. Sounds like you failed to copy it into the right folder some where along the way. Have a look and see if it is indeed missing and if so add it from the appropriate update or from a backup, if you have one. You can also get it from the phoenix build on github if you can't find it.
