    [Contribution] HelpDesk For osCommerce

    /etc/mail/aliases: help: "|/usr/bin/php -q /home/projects/osCommerce/cvs/catalog/extras/helpdesk/osc_mail2db.php config=/home/projects/osCommerce/cvs/admin/admin/includes/local/configure.php All on one line. The "help" user does not have to have a user account on the server - it's just an alias. Note: Don't forget to run "newaliases" to generate a new aliases.db file :) (should be located in the same directory as the "aliases" file) No - as mentioned, configuration is server specific. You can try, but don't blame me if something breaks :D

    I've locked a similar thread regarding recipe/osc_mail2db.php problems on the Features forum channel. http://forums.oscommerce.com/viewtopic.php?t=30806 Discussions should continue on this thread.

    Here is my example at Pair: The option to choose above is "Filter" In the Mail Sent To field I would enter the mail alias entry of help, sales, info, or whatever so that the helpdesk department email address would be help _AT_ oscommerce.com, sales _AT_ oscommerce.com, info _AT_ oscommerce.com, or whatever. [the " _AT_ " string is ofcourse the @ symbol to avoid the forum creating automatic links to non existing email accounts] The Pass To field would contain the following: /usr/bin/php -q /path/to/osc_mail2db.php config=/path/to/admin/includes/configure.php Note: There is no need to enter the | here (as in "|/usr/bin/php -q ....") as this is a html based interface to the mail setup which does the magic automatically behind the scenes. ## The correct term for mail alias entry is indeed Recipe.

    [Contribution] HelpDesk For osCommerce

    There is a reason why little documentation was provided with the contribution in regard to accepting incoming mails - this is very server specific and will be impossible to cover all areas. That is why when people have this working they should report back on the steps they made not only to help others out, but to also put some documentation together. I've put my bit in with the Sendmail example - that is all I did and it works for me. I will mention three types of servers: 1) Localhost (Linux. Windows probably needs a third party application). 2) Shared Server (little control over the server) 3) Dedicated Server (some control over the server) 1) It's more than likely you have no idea what to do otherwise you would not be reading up to this page on this thread :D (smile, sooner or later you will get it working) The most important thing to do is to get mails working with your localhost server. I have Gentoo Linux installed, the appropriate documentation for this can be found here: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/desktop.xml#doc_chap6 If your server documentation is still alien to you, the only suggestion I have is to test this on the shared/dedicated server and let the server administrator take care of it for you. 2) Ask your server administrator! Tell them you need a mail alias entry to parse a script - provide the examples given in the contribution installation text. If your server administrator does not know or has to do research on it, I'd suggest to move to another server hosting company. Hey, this is e-commerce, it should be taken seriously - your server administrator should have the know-how for their own servers! 3) A combination of 1) and 2). ## I hope that helps somewhat - I am not a unix mail guru so I cannot provide more tips. ## The contribution will also work without a mail alias entry, but then incoming emails cannot be tracked and stored in the database. I think the Contact Us page provided needs to be updated in this case as it needs to store the submited information directly in the database instead of emailing it to the mail alias entry (which would not exist).

    [CONTRIBUTION] GZIP Compression 1.0

    Remember that it is just the HTML being compressed, not the images. The images are already compressed in either GIF or JPG or whatever. I have proposed a php/gzip feature internally and will spruce it up and contribute it soon. There is some logic to enable gzip compression only if the client supports it. Here are some rough benchmarks: default.php: Uncompressed length: 27774 Compressed length: 3753 product_info.php: Uncompressed length: 25908 Compressed length: 4045 checkout_confirmation.php: Uncompressed length: 25617 Compressed length: 3428

    Ok, I will fix it. There was no need to make a duplicate contribution. Please email me if there are further problems with the package.

    P& G Shipping Module + Manual Entry V0.3 posted

    The v0.3 contribution has been moved to its package set, which can be found here: http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,585 To the authors, please avoid having multiple contributions in the one file (by the title I presume there is a shipping module involved too).

    Contribution "Add comment to order"?

    When Ian's Credit Class work is integrated into the project, there would have been too much information shown to the customer on this one page. Originally the textarea box was moved to the Checkout Confirmation page however due to the flexibility of the modules, depending on which module is installed and used the information could have been lost if the form on the confirmation page was sent to the payment processor server. It is possible to have the textarea box on the Confirmation page however the modules requiring to make a request to another server via HTTPS POST would need to be done via Curl or using native SSL features in the upcoming PHP 4.3 release - something which would have broken compatibility between servers. This is why it was moved to the Checkout Success page. By using Curl, the form method on the confirmation page would be taken to the processing page (checkout_process.php) where the request to the payment processor would be done in the before_process() payment class method.

    Ebay auction manager for OSCOMMERCE

    Sure you can - sign up an account at SourceForge and get your solution listed at HotScripts. Thats how I started :) I don't know the intentions of your solution on how it will relate to osCommerce - if it no longer relates to osCommerce I will kindly ask you to stop making postings here as this is a support forum for osCommerce only. There are plenty of other forum sites available if all you're looking for is help to get you started in your own ways.
  13. Is someone able to provide the API documentation for both SIM and AIM processing methods - this will help in stablizing the payment module.

    This is an interesting quote from their FAQ: This is also interesting: .. now if that was set here, how many posts would that reduce the forums to? ;)

    DHTML Menu's

    Something that we've started to do in the project is to make sure the bells and whistles (javascript) still work when the browser does not support it. I think the only example I can provide is the product image in the product information page. Clicking on it with javascript enabled will bring up the picture in a new window. Clicking on it with javascript disabled will load a new page with just the image showing. This can be done by specifying logic in <noscript></noscript> tags and be writing the javascript logic in javascript itself (huh? I mean with document.write :)) I do not mind DHTML menus etc - as long as the feature they are representing works with browsers that have it disabled. An example here is a DHTML menu - the buttons representing the menus should still be clickable to go to that area so that browsers that do not show the menu can still navigate on your site. This isnt a case for dropping bells and whistles - but making sure your site can be navigated by as much browsers as possible - which is important for an online shop otherwise potential customers will be that no more.
