  1. Hello,


    Is this auction contrib one that will allow me to host and operate auctions similar to ebay on my site? In other words..............will this allow me to have other people come to my site and list their items for auction? If not, could someone please recommend something that will integrate with my osc site?





  2. I have tried to look through this forum to find the answer to this issue........ to no avail.

    I have read through the entire docs.txt manual inside the contrib and still cannot find the answer.


    So...... my question is:


    The very first thing I am told to do after installation is go to admin/catalog/EP and choose to "Download a txt file to edit" but, I do not have that option available to me in the "Create then Download Files" box at the bottom of the page as directed.


    Before I move on I want to make sure I am doing everything correctly. Any help or explanation would be greatly appreciated.









    Create then Download Files

    Create entire file in server memory then stream download after completed.


    Download Complete .csv file to edit

    Download Model/Price/Qty .csv file to edit

    Download Model/Category .csv file to edit

    Download Froogle .csv file

    Download Model/Attributes .csv file

  3. Has anyone else had this error message on a fresh install of this contrib when you click on the "All Articles" in the Articles infobox on the main page:


    All Articles

    Current Articles




    1054 - Unknown column 'mydatabase.au.articles_id' in 'on clause'


    select count(*) as total from ((articles a) left join authors au using(authors_id)) left join articles_description ad using(articles_id), articles_to_topics a2t left join topics_description td using(topics_id) where (a.articles_date_available IS NULL or to_days(a.articles_date_available) <= to_days(now())) and a.articles_id = a2t.articles_id and a.articles_status = '1' and ad.language_id = '1' and td.language_id = '1'


    [TEP STOP]



    Everything else with this install seems to work well so far.


    But I do need some help on this one.

  4. Ok........


    I had everything working great again Jack and then I installed UltraPics w/Lighted Boxes contrib and I lost the ability to modify the tags information on my catalog products page in admin.


    I know the foul up must be in the admin/categories.php file, it is the one that shares modifications with both contribs, so I tried first to merge the file provided in UltraPics............ that didn't work.

    Then I tried merging the opposite direction and that didn't work either.


    So then I spent the better half of the afternoon cutting and pasting the HTC admin/categories.php info into the file provided with UltraPics and still no love.


    It must be a relatively simple fix but now I am at a loss as to what to do next.


    Any suggestions from anyone out there who might know or has had similar problems.





  5. Hello All,


    I just installed this contrib w/lighted box and now I do not get any of my options for Header Tags Controller on the product edit page in my admin/catalog.


    I tried merging my original admin/categories.php with the one provided in the download for UltraPics w/Lighted Box and that didn't work.

    I tried merging the one provided with my original and that didn't work either so then I tried recoding it manually and that still produced the same end result.


    Has anyone ever experienced this or a similar problem and if not......... does anyone have any ideas to help me be able to use these two very fine contribs together on the same site.





  6. OK...........


    I had everything working ................. I thought, but


    No matter what I put in the INDEX title section and check the "HTTA" box ...................


    I only get what is listed in the Default title section unless I put nothing in the default title section, in which case I get the regular path listed in the URL address bar.


    Any thoughts on this??????


    Contributions on my site are:

  7. Hello Everyone.


    Can someone guide me to the correct layer in the .PSD files so I can change the color of the graphic borders. I have tried everything I know to change them in Photoshop but do not seem to be getting the result I am looking for.


    I tried just changing the background color but that did not work as I would expect it would. Has anyone ever changed the color of the borders? It should be cinch with photoshop but I think I must be missing something along the way.





  8. Hello Everyone..........


    I am going through the provided "catalog" folder from the "all updates packaged" version with my file merge utility and everything was going fine with all the files that had the SEF code bracketed by the:


    // SEF BEGIN




    //SEF END



    Everything was going fine until I arrived at the index.php file and started comparing it to mine. I have installed a few contributions, including HTC, and there is one very large section of code in the provided SEF index.php file that is very different compared to mine. This code is not as well defined in that, inside of the // SEF brackets some of my code matches and some does not.


    My concern is ................. what do I do with this section? Do I just merge EVERYTHING within the // SEF brackets, or do I do something else?




    Any help would be greatly appreciated.





  9. Ok everyone..................I have looked through all of the "ERROR" related posts on this topic and tried everything mentioned ( changed all related permissions including the images folder to match all header_tags.php folders in all languages as well as commented out the referred code in the other file, and tried a variety of different possibilities for permissions ) all to no avail. I have contacted my hosting service and made damn sure I was using the permissions properly but......................


    I am still getting the errors in the following:


    in the admin - Header tag Area I do not get an error in the fill tags screen,


    but when I go to the text control screen I get the following error:


    Error Permissions settings for the /html/catalog/includes/languages/english/header_tags.php file appear to be incorrect. Change to 755




    And in the page control screen I get both of these errors:


    Permissions settings for the /html/catalog/includes/header_tags.php file appear to be incorrect. Change to 755

    Error Permissions settings for the /html/catalog/includes/languages/english/header_tags.php file appear to be incorrect. Change to 755.


    I am sure it is due to my own neglect but I just cannot seem to find what I did wrong. I have checked and re-checked everything that I did but ARRRRRGH!!!!



    Please be so kind as to offer some help.





  10. I figured I would have to put it in the boxes/shopping_cart.php but I am unclear as to HOW to do it. Which code are you referring to?


    Could you be so kind as to walk me through it? I have never added more stuff to an infobox and put it on the left or right column before.





  11. I like this contrib and installed it on my site but:


    I only have the option to show the estimated shipping costs from the shopping cart view. I was under the impression that this contrib would add a new infobox to all the pages so the customer could get the shipping info anywhere along the shopping experience.


    I believe this site www.frencybee.com has the same contrib but it is available in the shopping cart infobox on the right column at any time after you put something in the cart.


    Can anyone help me with this? I would like to have my site set up the exact same way.





  12. OK........................ just when I thought everything was going so well.


    I was working in Firefox, Safari, and Opera all the time and everything looks awesome!!!!!


    But, when I use Internet Explorer ARRRRRGGGHHHHH................. the tabbed pane stretches out off the page to the right.




    DAMN................. just when the world was perfect. Along comes MS IE!!!!!!!






  13. I could try to help but I know NOTHING about code and just muddled my way through it. On my site the product detail info is in the main info part of a two column site with the navigation on the left. When I first installed the tabbed panes in my product description boxes in my catalog it left me with a picture inside the first tabbed pane with the options drop-down box, add to cart, and reviews buttons above the tabs. That looked really silly to me so I looked through the code on the product_info.php and found where everything was happening. Once I realized where it was being controlled I moved the product pic code out of the description tabbed pane code and placed it above the tabs. Now my Pic is centered above the tabs, right above the buttons for product options, the add to cart, and reviews buttons. I changed the colors of everything so it matched the more grey'ish tones of my site as well.


    If you think I can actually help you out I would be glad to ........................... but like I said " I know NOTHING about code."





  14. A fixed width template should not pose any great problems for this contribution. However any site with BTS or STS template system or an infobox skinning contribution will encounter conflicts with this contribution (and many other contributions).



    I actually got the tabbed panes to work wonderfully on my site. I even changed the colors and stuff so it merged flawlessly into the products details page. It truely is an awesome contribution for me and I hope to be able to change the tabs to a more "rounded tabs" look. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
