This may have been covered in the thread so far, but 315 pages is quite a bit to wade through. My questions is in regards to the model number size...
//**** Size of products_model in products table ****
// set this to the size of your model number field in the db. We check to make
// sure all models are no longer than this value. this prevents the database from
// getting fubared. Just making this number bigger won't help your database! They must match!
// If you increase the Model Number size, you must increase the size of the field
// in the database. Use a SQL tool like phpMyAdmin (see your host) and change the
// "products_model" field of the "products" table in your osCommerce Database.
define ('EP_MODEL_NUMBER_SIZE', 12); // default is 12
Am I reading this correctly...that all product model numbers must be the same length and match the number of characters defined here? I will be dropshipping products from numerous vendors and each vendor may have their own way of assigning product numbers. If certain products have a smaller product number length will I need to insert additional characters before uploading?
