  1. No, it doesn't give ip info, but you can track order id numbers. it does have session tracking where you can see people over multiple sessions and their paths and actions. Also shows search terms they choose. All anonymous data though.
  2. Occasionally, I have to edit an order down to zero and the low order fee kicks in if it’s set to true. So, first I have to turn the low order fee off and then remember to turn it back on. So, today I had the idea to change the conditional statement to check the order is not zero. If the items are taken down to zero, then the low order fee does not apply. if anyone wants to do this, in class "ot_loworderfee" find if ( ($pass == true) && ( ($order->info['total'] - $order->info['shipping_cost']) < MODULE_ORDER_TOTAL_LOWORDERFEE_ORDER_UNDER)) { and change to if ( ($pass == true) && ( ($order->info['total'] - $order->info['shipping_cost']) < MODULE_ORDER_TOTAL_LOWORDERFEE_ORDER_UNDER) && ( ($order->info['total'] - $order->info['shipping_cost']) > 0) ) { Probably makes more sense to have the zero test condition first, but really doens't matter. I've tested and it works.
  3. I mentioned this to Burt the other day and he didn't realize bestsellers show out of stock items. He's going to hotfix this on his next round. I have Google showing my bestsellers in some snippets for searches, so it's handy to only show in stock items. Google updated within a day on this. I've done a lot of head scratching over time. Worried I would wear out a bald spot.
  4. In my case, there are items that are gone because I can't get them anymore. For bestsellers, I modified mine so out of stock items don't show on bestsellers.
  5. I saw this as an issue a long time ago and have modified how I handle it over time. I have products that can be gone for a while but come back, so I modified the notification to show a link to be notified by email when back in stock. There's an addon that handles some of this to when a stock level is put back in, an email is sent to the notification list with a link to the product. For items that are gone and not coming back I give a "410 Gone" header and a message for the consumer to see. Sometimes, I'll add a redirect in .htaccess from one product to another.
  6. The Google Analytics data doesn't contain any personal data, but you can figure out who some people are with transactions.
  7. The most likely reason that fixed it for you, is that the script is set to be called in footer_scripts. The other option is for it to be called in header, but it's better to delay any script you can to footer. Some scripts need to be in header though, or the page doesn't load correctly.
  8. Google Snippets

    @burt You might find this interesting. I modified my best sellers to only show items that are in stock a while back, so I only show items that can be purchased at the time. Anyway, I marked hydrangeas out of stock yesterday and Google has already updated that snippet to reflect this.
  9. Google Snippets

    Yes, I knew that it would be geo-targetted, but I only ship within the US. I check different states and it shows for the ones I've checked. Rankings vary state by state and cities sometimes. I noticed recently that Google changed some of the info it displays for me. I do think it's interesting that it pulled from the bestselles too! I have to say I'm pretty happy about this right now. Everything helps.
  10. While I was using the display tool in Adwords for different search terms I stumbled on this snippet. It's a pretty specific term that I show up like this, but Webmaster tools, shows high up on my list of terms bringing traffic for the last 28 days. Wish Google would show it for more, but I'll take what I can get. Mine is the snippet for Dried Flowers "R" Us. This is an organic listing, not cpc.
  11. ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    One problem is this addon isn't really maintained and in the future, I think it will be problematic. However, for now, I've been using it for a long time so I'll stick with it. If I were setting up a new shop, I would not employ this addon.

    One thing about it, is most browsers will autofill if you start typing words you remember from URL's.
  13. Falcon Heavy launch

    @clustersolutions Yes, the sonic booms always seemed to be at 3AM or such. Dogs would freak out barking their asses off! Dixie Crossroads is still there, and in my restaurant management days I worked with some managers from there when I worked for Bennigan's. I was at the one near SeaWorld, but we had a bunch in Orlando. Never heard of Frankies though. Time flies, doesn't it Tim?
  14. Upgrading osCommerce 2.2 RC2a to PHP 5.6

    What php version are you upgrading from? You might be hitting problems with "session.bug_compat_42". This might help you https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3575180/what-are-session-bug-compat-42-and-session-bug-compat-warn Even if it's not this, you probably are running into some kind of session problem. If you are good with something like Beyond Compare you can upgrade some of the files that will deal with this. You are probably much better served upgarding to a new current version. It won't be much more time consuming and not too hard.
  15. Falcon Heavy launch

    I saw where they often will use concrete or the like to simulate the load. I have to say that a Tesla is way cooler, and yes, I am that easily impressed. @clustersolutions After the launch Elon went to Fishlips to have a beer to celebrate. I don't know if you've ever been there, but it's a 2 story bar & grill in Port Canaveral. I used to play poker on Suncruise and we'd go to Fishlips before for apps and beer. Pretty good calamari and a great place to watch the cruise ships go out. I imagine the bar was packed for this launch as it always was for the shuttle. Went on Suncruise one night for a shuttle launch, which was pretty cool to see from 3 miles out. The shuttle and a poker tourney!
