  1. Google XML Sitemap SEO

    Looks like you could use the compatibility add on or change those constants to the actual file names. Dan
  2. Ebay manager

    @leatherdealer Flo....fyi...bumping is not permitted on the forums. Please refer to the guidelines and in particular item 3. under Posting. It is also not appropriate to 'like' posts hoping someone will visit the forum. Dan
  3. HoneyPot Captcha

    I'm sure Tom will clarify but I think his point is that smarter bots, or perhaps AI bots, might be programmed to recognize traps like that, where the names were so obvious, and might skip the input. An interesting point and one that might become obvious over time ie. you'll know about it. Dan
  4. It would be nice if the modular shopping cart could make the list. Dan
  5. Please provide the information requested in this post. How to get the help you need. Dan
  6. Here is a link to the APP. Dan
  7. Did you try installing the PayPal App? Dan
  8. [Addon] Product Sort Within Category

    Very nice John...I just installed it on a site running on the GOLD version. It was a pretty easy install and does exactly what you described above. It will certainly bring some organization to those category pages where the products seemed to be listed randomly. It is definitely a must have add-on and one that I'll be using on an ongoing basis. Well done! Dan
  9. how to install ??

    I haven't read through it recently but there is a PayPay APP guide here that might help. Dan
  10. Newsletters & Subscribers OSC 2.3

    I think I'm using a real hacked up version of this on a responsive version of osC. I use a double opted in subscription routine so I don't have this issue but you can probably add some thing like Jack's new HoneyPot Captcha add-on to prevent bots from subscribing. I think you'll find his code to be fairly easy to add to most forms. If you are interested in taking a look you'll find it here. Dan
  11. Newsletters & Subscribers OSC 2.3

    With this add-on or MailChimp? What are you looking for a solution to? Dan
  12. HoneyPot Captcha

    I was thinking the same thing but your module makes it easy to take things a step further. Thanks for taking the time to both develop and contribute it to the community. Dan
  13. HoneyPot Captcha

    This is pretty interesting idea Jack....good thinking. In installing it, I also noticed that the action recorder is implemented on the contact us page....that must also slow the bots down a lot. Dan
  14. Fatal error after server crash

    You're right Jack....maybe I should have used the word might instead of should but I'm sure Keiron will soon discover if his hosting package does or doesn't. Dan
  15. Fatal error after server crash

    Selecting the PHP level should be an option in your cpanel. Dan
  16. And Jack just posted this. https://apps.oscommerce.com/t3rEO&honey-pot Dan
  17. OSC 2.3.4 bs and SMTP email

    That's interesting....thanks for taking the time to explain. Now I know something. I'm surprised they don't also offer some type of service to deal with the email issue you described ie offering up a Cloudflare IP but perhaps the nature of what they are doing prevents them from doing that. Good luck getting it figured out. Dan
  18. OSC 2.3.4 bs and SMTP email

    I know nothing about nothing too and the minute I think I do, I realize I don't, but I think you've making this way to tough. It would never have occurred to me to worried about that. You can get a sites IP by just typing in the website address at places like http://get-site-ip.com/ so I'm not sure hackers are going to go the trouble of joining your email list or whatever to hunt down your IP. Dan
  19. OSC 2.3.4 bs and SMTP email

    Huh? Don't you need to include your IP etc in your headers to reach the recipients inbox these days? I'm probably wrong but won't messing with that just get you in their spam box or worst yet, just trashed by the recipients host? Dan
  20. OSC 2.3.4 bs and SMTP email

    Have you been down this road?
  21. Need help? You've come to the right place. This post offers some general suggestions on how to get the help you need, quickly and efficiently. With over 1.6 million posts, your question has likely been asked and answered already so try searching the forums first. Using Google search generally produces the best results. In the Google search bar, just enter osCommerce and a description of the problem you are having or a likely topic for that problem and see what results are returned. You may get the help you need faster than you think. If you can't find the answer you need using Google Search then perhaps someone on the forums can help. Help is provided by volunteers, so please be considerate of their time, and provide as much information as possible. Here is a list of the information you should provide. Not all of it may be applicable to your particular situation, but providing as much detail as possible will result in a faster and more relevant reply. 1. Which version of osCommerce you are using? (you can find this at Admin > Tools > Version Checker). - Please provide the full version number, which is 3 or 4 digits ie 2. Also indicate whether you are using standard osCommerce or the Responsive (a.k.a. "Community Edition", "Community Supported") version. - If you are using version 2.3.4 or and are not sure you can check whether your site is Responsive (mobile friendly) by entering your website address here. 3. Is this a new install or an existing store? - If this is a new install please be sure you are using the latest version of osCommerce which you can get here. 4. What version of PHP are you using? (you can determine this by looking at Admin > Tools > Server Info) - If your ISP has recently updated the version of PHP they are using, it can cause a variety of problems. Fortunately, recent versions of osCommerce have been updated to work with newer versions of PHP, so if you are experiencing issues with PHP, please consider updating your osCommerce software. 5. Now you are ready to provide a detailed description of the problem you are having, including if applicable, the steps needed to reproduce it. - Providing a link to the page where the problem can be seen or if you are receiving an error message, a screen shot or the exact text of the message displayed is extremely helpful. The more detailed information you can provide the better. Be sure to obscure (***-out) sensitive information such as your server account name. If you need to show your configure.php file(s), remove or obscure the database name, user, and password! Now that you've gathered the information needed, you'll need to decide where to post it. 1. If the problem relates to an add-on that you downloaded from the apps area please see if there is a support thread for that add-on, and if so post your help request there. Often the authors of the add-on monitor their support threads, and you'll get the quickest and most appropriate response there. 2. If your problem relates to a 3rd party product or template that you acquired elsewhere, then you should go back to the author or vendor of that 3rd party product and ask for help there. They will be in the best position to help. 3. All other requests for help should be posted to the General Support forum. Start your own thread instead of posting to an existing thread, even if they seem related to the problem you are having. Your problem or the version of osCommerce/PHP you are using may be different and only serve to confuse others who are seeking help with a similar problem. Ask a new question. If all else fails or you need help updating an older add-on, or perhaps creating a new one, commercial support is also available. Requests for commercial support can be posted here.
  22. PayPal App for osCommerce Online Merchant

    As I understand it....v5.018 was an auto update on 5.010 to swat a few bugs....sorry I don't know anything about Hosted Solution whatever that is. Dan
  23. PayPal App for osCommerce Online Merchant

    Didn't one of your posts already state that the Hosted Solution was not yet included in the PayPal app? Dan
  24. search filed error

    See this thread for information on upgrading and have a look at MrPhi's signature file, or mine for that matter, on where to download the latest version. Dan
