  1. This is driving me nuts, I can't figure out what's wrong. Desperate to fix this! When a customer chooses the "Express Checkout" option, throughout the checkout process the address they entered is not displayed, there is a blank space where the address should be and a single comma which normally separates two parts of the address. The same happens in the confirmation email: However, both the shipping address and the billing address do show up in the shop's admin area on the order list. How do I make the address display during checkout and in the confirmation email? Any advice greatly appreciated!
  2. I don't know if there's a way to set up a separate donation facility - I've just set up a "product" which is the donation, and all of that money goes to the charity... :unsure:
  3. Hello, Is it possible to set the automatic emails up so that there is an extra email that can be sent when a customer buys a certain product? My client's store has the option to make a donation to a charity they support, and they would like to thank people who add a donation to their basket to get a separate email thanking them and informing them how their donation is helping. Thanks!

    zone rates

    Hi, this looks like it's exactly what I need - but I'm confused about how I set the zones. In the extra table rate editing, it gives me a drop down menu of zones to use it for, and the menu only has one option, UK. How do I add more zones to it? Edit - sorry, I asked too soon - I was able to add more by adding tax zones. I didn't think of that at first because I didn't think taxes had anything to do with it, sorry!

    Shipping rate by weight cut off point?

    Thank you so much! I didn't realise that was there...
  6. I've tried searching but I'm not sure I understand it all... Is there a contribution that allows me to set the shipping price by a weight limit, ie. so that an order that comes to under 2kg would cost a set amount, and an order that goes over 2kg would have another set amount? Effectively, two shipping prices with 2kg as the cut off point? Any advice much appreciated!

    Error with Three Images contrib

    Hi, I've got a problem with this contrib as well - I've done everything the installation guide says, but when I try to click on 'catalog' in my admin panel, it gives me a blank page. No error messages, nothing shows, just a blank page. I assume the problem is in the admin/categories.php file, but I can't work out where. I've checked that I've put all the additions in there correctly and changed the right lines. Has anyone else encountered this problem?

    Showing products in the categories box

    Result! Found a contribution that shows the products in the categories box: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/912 However, I am still trying to work out how to stop the subcategory lists or product listings from showing - my client only wants people to go straight to the product_info pages from the left hand menu.

    Showing products in the categories box

    I found a way to display the category names as images, but I haven't worked out how to display products in the categories box - I found a contribution that should do this (http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,5366/) but I haven't managed to get it to work. There are no English instructions so I'm not sure I'm doing it right - I swapped the includes/boxes/categories.php file to the one provided and added the necessary lines to the stylesheet, but the whole shop stopped working altogether. Perhaps it wasn't compatible with the version of osCommerce I'm using? (2.2RC1) I really need to somehow get the products to show in the categories box... is there anyone here who's done this?
  10. Hello, I've been trying to find a contribution that would allow me to do this: I need the products to list under the category name in the categories box, so that you could click on a product name in the left hand side and go straight to the product_info page. I also need to make sure customers don't go to a list of products in a category at all, only to the product pages directly. I also need the category names to be presented by images instead of text. In essence, I want my 'categories' box to show the first category's products by default, and by clicking another category's name it would switch to showing the other category's products, but not go to the category's page. Is this possible to do? Thank you in advance.
  11. Sorry, ignore me - I had only downloaded the modified contrib file, the information on where to put it was in the original one which I hadn't opened. My bad :blush:
  12. Hi everyone, this contribution: http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,4474/ looks just what I need, but as I'm a beginner I'm not sure where to put the code it gives you. I assume it's either in the category box file or application_top, but not sure - and I don't know where in the file to put it either. Any advice greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance :)

    [Contribution] STS v4

    An update, I got it sorted. I copied the files from the STS folder to the catalog as instructed but upon closer inspection a few of them still needed the manual edits. This might have been due to me getting my files mixed up. Starting to play around with my templates now, thanks for this contrib, it should make my life a lot easier! :)

    [Contribution] STS v4

    Hi everyone, I tried reading through this thread and searching, but couldn't find a solution to this problem: I have a fresh install of osCommerce 2.2 RC1 and installed STS 4.5.8 as well. My catalog/shop front is now blank. Even if I set STS to false or even choose "remove" to uninstall it, the shop still shows up as blank. I've tried looking in the include files and I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Any advice on where to start fixing this would be greatly appreciated!
