    Paypal Standard Payments Failing

    @Bordersbloke The crt update worked for me....are you using the PayPal APP? Dan
  2. DeDe does this solve the problem of it not working on an initial page load? See the following post. Dan

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    Fredi...there is no need to be on the bleeding edge....pick a point.... is probably a good spot and hang out there until things have evolved to a point where you want to step up a version or two. Otherwise proceed with caution and be patient. Dan

    AIM and SIM have reached End of Life

    John here is the actual notice that I received...using AIM as well. AIM/SIM APIs and Simple Checkout Officially Deprecated Our legacy Advanced Integration Method (AIM) and Server Integration Method (SIM) APIs, as well as our Simple Checkout option, are officially deprecated, meaning we will no longer provide any updates to these APIs. If your website or payment solution uses one of these methods, this means the following: You can continue to process transactions via the APIs and Simple Checkout Your use of the APIs and Simple Checkout is “as is,” meaning you will not receive any new updates, including new features, payment network mandate updates, etc. Because these methods will no longer be updated, you could face penalties and fees associated with transactions that do not meet mandate/compliance requirements Your transaction processing functionality could deteriorate over time If you are using the AIM/SIM APIs or Simple Checkout, we highly encourage you to upgrade your website or payment solution to use the current Authorize.Net API. This will allow you to stay up to date on new releases, network mandates, and more. Please contact your web developer or payment solution provider for further assistance or to find out whether you are currently using AIM, SIM, or Simple Checkout. For me I'm not sure I'd call it urgent but it would be nice to get out in front of the bus. I don't really want to logon some morning only to find that my main payment option is now failing. Dan

    AIM and SIM have reached End of Life

    Bill, maybe it would be worthwhile asking someone like @BrockleyJohn (who seems to know his way around the payment modules) for a quote on updating the authorize.net module. I'm sure there are others interested in getting it updated to and perhaps we can crowd fund it to make it happen. Dan
  6. It's something I might have done too, in fact I think I have. 😀 Dan
  7. Or you can just install the existing module that comes with Phoenix. At least I assume it comes with Phoenix. Dan

    Upgrading to the latest version

    Or if you're not a member of the club it's on the osC download page... https://www.oscommerce.com/Products Dan

    Import CSV?

    Take a look at EasyPopulate...it'll allow you to import and export product information using a csv file. It might do what you want or at least get you on your way. Dan

    Products Image Verify

    I would turn on error reporting to see what messages are shown. Once you know what the problem is you can then fix them or ask for additional help. Dan

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    I don't use this version but normally if you go to your customers list, select a customer and then create order it should take you to edit_orders.php so you can add a phone order etc. At least it does with the version I use. Dan

    Phoenix Dashboard

    When it gets released beyond the Club, I'm sure Gary will post the usual install instructions. Dan
  13. You need to add that field to your products table. That field was missing in my database at one point too. Back up your database and then try adding it. I did so using... ALTER TABLE `products` ADD `products_gtin` CHAR(14) NULL AFTER `products_ordered`; Dan
  14. Perfect....wasn't hard was it? Congratulations. Just because Gary releases an update doesn't mean that you need to stop what you're doing. Get your store up and running and come back to that at some future date. Dan
  15. Tom I would just follow Gary's advice and copy over the entire database, minus the configuration files. You'll want to keep your Phoenix configuration files. That is the easiest approach and exactly what I did....you'll be missing a couple of fields but Phoenix will complain about those and you can simply add them. You'll end up with some data you don't need but it really doesn't matter...in my case I actually wanted that data. I added extra fields over the years and didn't want to loose any of that information I had collected. Dan
  16. Congratulations Martin. Woot, woot!!! Dan
  17. I think I gave up on this one...faced the same issues and fate as Malcolm did. My advice...move along...it will be a time sink and not likely end well. Dan
  18. Interesting idea. 👍 Dan PS: That's one ugly thumbs up Emoji.
  19. That's a good example....now lets see if there is any interest. Dan
  20. You're right...for some reason, over night, I recalled trying to get a "How to get help" post pinned and we weren't able to do that either so it would need to be a pinless thread. Not ideal but not a show stopper either. Dan
  21. I haven't seen any information on what is involved in the certification process but was under the impression that it was per developer. I'm not sure how feasible or practical that would be, for the masses though. I guess if we had a few certified developers, willing to adopt many of these add-ons it could work otherwise I think number 3 is probably closer to what was being suggested and would maybe serve as a stop gap measure and perhaps a task list. Unless I'm mistaken (and it is entirely possible) I think Gary has the ability to pin posts. Whether he'll want to or not I don't know. Dan
  22. Matt...I had a quick peek. It looks like that dashboard was added in but unfortunately I'm not that up-to-date yet. As I recall, I think we both saw a preview of it and, unless it changed substantially I don't think it would capture what was being suggested here. I think the suggestion was to pull together a list of add-ons, not only certified ones, but also ones from shop owners and other contributors, including add-ons that have been around for years and been updated to work with Phoenix. Things like the Order Editor that is invaluable to many, has been around for years and most recently updated by BrockleyJohn or perhaps the Multi-Zone-Multi-Table add- on I was messing around with the other day or the bunch of add-ons that Jack has been updating recently. Having a list of those that work and are generally very useful would, I think, be a big help to newer users of Phoenix that just aren't familiar with what is available or even how to find them if they did. As I'm sure you're aware, the add-ons area is a mess in it's current form. Dan
  23. I don't think that was what was contemplated here but I'll have closer look. Dan
  24. Good point and it would be helpful to have a good list of add-ons that you can easily drop in, install and configure. Anyone up to that task? Dan
  25. Probably means different things to different people....I see it simple as, what you absolutely need to sell something....ie needed by everyone but again everyone probably has different take on that. My point was to just give Joe an overview of the general direction. What is included, as core, will of course be decided by the core team. Dan
