  1. And I thought it was the beer. Dan
  2. Steve...won't the KISS thumbnail add-on that Rainer supports do that for you? Dan
  3. A real interesting read. Death of Retail: Fact vs. Fiction While I wasn't surprised to see brick and mortar closings exceeding the new starts, I was surprised by the number of new starts in the dollar store type businesses. Removing those it becomes a really sad picture. What can we do to stand out and offer a different experience as more and more customers shop on-line? In particular, what are you doing or planning to do? For those with repeat customers, what can we do to keep them coming back? Dan
  4. Module Header Tags > Category SEO help please

    Good eyes and suggestion. Dan
  5. Module Header Tags > Category SEO help please

    My guess....I think there was a field added to the database to store that information so if you're not using the database that was supplied with the CE install you'll need to add that field to the database if it doesn't exist already. Dan
  6. In addition are there things we can do to create a user experience that differentiates ourselves from market places like Amazon? While the on-line market is increasing, so is the competition. What can we do differently that will allow us to stand out? Do your customers really care about a pretty website, a better user experience etc or are they only concerned getting the lowest possible price. As a friend of mine always says....is this just a race to the bottom? Dan
  7. Is Text Messaging a Game-changer for Ecommerce? Would you be receptive to receiving promotions via Text? Dan

  9. Not to the South of us. Dan
  10. Hey...he spells colour right. Dan
  11. Orders Not Passing through to Paypal

    You won't get laughed at....post your request there. I was going to suggest that since getting your site up and running again should be a priority. Dan
  12. Orders Not Passing through to Paypal

    It is the last few lines in any message that is posted. The PayPal app may or may not work with older versions of osC but you might want to check that first....if it works with your version try installing it. It may resolve the issue you are having. The log file may well be a unique feature that was added to the app. Dan
  13. Orders Not Passing through to Paypal

    Any hints in the paypal log? Some general information might help too...what version of osC are you using...are you using the PayPal app etc....see my signature file on how to ask for help. Dan
  14. Looking good Henry. Dan
  15. "Frozen" should work Gary and allow everyone to move along. Dan
  16. Larry...you'll need to change all the classes....not a simple task...or mask the error messages...not ideal. I would ask your host to roll the PHP level back to 5.6 as suggested by Malcolm and consider getting a new host if you're not being supported properly. Changing the PHP should be a no brainer for your host...if you have access to your cpanel you might even be able to do it yourself. Dan
  17. What version of PHP did they set it at?....it looks like it is still set at a level higher then it should be for the version of osC that you're using. I assume you're running an older version of osC GOLD? Dan
  18. Versioning for Apps/Modules

    Nice...you're getting there Henry....have some more spirituality on me. Dan
  19. I really like this idea... Best KPI for Ecommerce Growth It would be nice to have a module to send out a brief survey and gather the data and display it on an admin dashboard. Something along the lines of Gary's Key System. If this was developed I'd definitely be interested in purchasing it. Would you? Dan
  20. Versioning for Apps/Modules

    That's a fantastic idea especially if something "critical" should arise. That would have never occurred to me...good thinking Henry. Dan
  21. updated certificates

    @John W The new certificate works fine John and fyi...you don't need to change the gateway either. Mine is still pointed to secure instead of secure2 and everything seems to be working as it should. Dan
  22. Versioning for Apps/Modules

    Critical....even better. Dan
  23. Versioning for Apps/Modules

    I was thinking it might form the basis of a notice on the dashboard so shop owners know to pay attention and get it installed. I was picturing a whole bunch of updates being available and was thinking it would be nice to have a way to know what was critical and what could wait. That might be one indication if you don't have something else in mind. Dan
  24. Versioning for Apps/Modules

    I'm not really clear on what you're doing but for what it's worth, would it be useful to add Security Patch? Dan
  25. @burt Gary....while I'm disappointed as I'm sure Rainer is too, I do agree that it would be better if it was more fully tested, given the changes involved. It certainly was more complicated then anticipated so I think your approach is best....I would certainly prefer that over rushing things to get it into the core only to find out that there are issues with it later on.
