  1. 17 Years Young!

    We're 17 today! 17 years working on Open Source. 17 years working with you. Trusting us for 17 years. Thank you! We're not only celebrating just today, but this whole month! New releases coming soon. New websites coming soon. #celebratingwithyou Happy Birthday osCommerce!
  2. Progress Update

    Hi All.. A quick progress update regarding what we've been working on recently. A new Community Team is being formed to help moderate community submitted content and to help with community relations and issues. This not only helps the developers in the team to focus more on code development and less on moderation, but also broadens the voice in the team when community related issues arise and are addressed. This new approach to the team is being ironed out and we'll be glad to invite more active users in the community to help out once everything is running smoothly again. For the curious, those we have initially invited can be seen on the forum staff page. An internal build of v2.3.5 has been in testing and this weekend will be spent fixing the known issues. A majority of reported issues and pull requests at Github have been addressed and will also make their way into v2.3.6 (the Community Bootstrap edition). These releases are planned to be the last in the v2.3.x release series to place all resources on v2.4/v3.0. Accommodations will be made if the community wish to continue working on v2.3.6 for future v2.3.x releases. More information about this will be announced with the releases. The next test builds will be made available to Ambassadors for a wider testing audience. Both releases will be officially pushed out this month. The forum software has been updated to the latest release series and introduces a new Clubs section to the forum. We've moved our partner announcements forum channels to the Clubs section where our partners can customize their own club sections further with logos and additional discussion channels. We're planning on adding multilingual Clubs in the near future, and also community requested clubs (eg, for community release editions). The upgrade of the forum software version was originally postponed due to changes made with user accounts and the integration we have with our main website. This also plays a role with the marketplace integration in v2.4 where user accounts are required. An online update for 2.4 will be pushed out soon to test the marketplace integration and user account logins/creations with. Release dates for v2.4 will be provided when the marketplace integration online update has been pushed out. Two new websites were planned to be launched in Q4 but are being pushed back to Q1 2018 to push our next releases out first. The new websites are for a proper commercial support inquiry / job marketplace website (to replace the not-so-user-friendly forum channel here in the forums), and a new user profile website (for Ambassadors) to highlight ones profile across all of our websites (submissions from our forums, live sites, and apps marketplace websites), with the focus on the person behind the screen name. Hope everyone has a great festive season!
  3. We're proud to announce the introduction of a new App endeavor with the release of PayPal App for osCommerce Online Merchant! We've worked in close collaboration with PayPal to not only bring you updated PayPal payment modules but have also bundled all PayPal modules, including Log In with PayPal, into a single App package for an even tighter integration with osCommerce Online Merchant to enhance both sellers and buyers experiences with PayPal. The PayPal App is optimized for and will be bundled with the upcoming osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.5 release and can be installed on existing installations from v2.2RC2a to v2.3.4. The PayPal App has been architectured to preview and showcase the direction we are taking the new osCommerce Online Merchant v2.4 series in and how the new series will allow you to install and update Apps on your online store through the Administration Dashboard. The PayPal App includes an online update feature that can update itself with a click of a button that will be part of the core in v2.4 for all Apps to take advantage of. We are also extremely proud to be one of the first self-hosted e-commerce solutions to allow the PayPal App to configure itself by securely retrieving the PayPal account API Credentials for you. This is currently available for US and UK sellers and allows you to sign into or create a PayPal live or sandbox account to retrieve the API Credentials from. This makes it extremely easy for new PayPal sellers to start experiencing the PayPal payment methods through a sandbox account and to create a live account as soon as they are ready to accept payments - directly from the osCommerce Administration Dashboard. In addition, the PayPal App includes: - Updated payment modules - Payments Standard: Support for Payment Data Transfer (PDT) payments - Payments Standard: Stock management in IPN notifications - Order Administration: Capture full or partial authorizations, refund full or partial transactions - API Logging: All parameters sent in and received from API calls are logged Documentation for the PayPal App is available at: http://library.oscommerce.com/Package&paypal The PayPal App can be downloaded for free at: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/9184 We look forward to your feedback on this announcement! Please post your feedback to this topic and any support related enquiries to the following channel: http://forums.oscommerce.com/forum/54-paypal/
  4. Happy Holidays!

    We wish everyone a great holiday season and a fantastic start in 2017! Special thanks to the team, our community members, and our partners - thank you for your continued support in not only helping us, but also continuing to welcoming and helping new store owners joining the community. Our highlights during 2016 include the launch of our new Live Sites website, our new German website, and the development of a new osCommerce Online Merchant v2.4 Joli release series currently in beta. The upcoming v2.4.3 version will include a tool that inspects the database schema to display the differences with the installed database structure compared to what is expected from the core database structure of the release. This plays an integral role in supporting upgrades and migrations from our earlier v2.3 release series, and also supporting database schema changes Apps need to perform. Our awesome community members of the month for 2016 are: grandpaj (Jan) Mort-lemur (Feb) Tsimi (Mar) 14steve14 (Apr) Dan Cole (May) clustersolutions (Jun) douglaswalker (Jul) kymation (Aug) raiwa (Sep) Tsimi (Oct) MrPhil (Nov) Jack_mcs (Dec) The 10 most active Add-On developers for 2016 are: raiwa auzStar kymation Tsimi Jack_mcs Shopgate f.figue Gyakutsuki PiLLaO dp.ramone Our plans for 2017 include the production ready releases of our v2.4 and v3.0 release series, using Crowdin to manage the osCommerce Online Merchant language definitions, launching our new Apps Marketplace website, launching a new website showcasing your community profile highlights across our websites, launching our websites in more languages, merging and supporting multilingual communities, relaunching our social media presence, and more exciting endeavors to be announced throughout the new year.

  6. osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.3.4

    osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.3.4 is a general maintenance release focusing on improving core features and the Database Tables "Convert to UTF-8" action introduced in the previous release. This release is in preparation of and building up to v2.3.4. Changelog MySQL Error Functions (Harald) Don't pass a null parameter to the MySQL error functions otherwise PHP will display a warning message. UTF-8 Conversion (Harald) Also manually convert existing data records to UTF-8 and detect encodings to prevent double encodings. Allow a dry-run to show which queries would be performed. LC_NUMERIC Locale (Harald) As LC_ALL is now being used to set the locale, some languages other than English were using commas in float/decimal values which conflicted with MySQL. LC_NUMERIC is now set and forced to the system locale after the main language file has loaded.

  8. 2.4 Series

    Hey Guys.. No download release yet, but... as has been noticed, the v2.4.0 Administration Dashboard is being worked on to also bring it up to the same level of awesomeness you have all worked hard on for the shop frontend. Although we're working hard on this, it will take a little bit of time to get all of the administration pages updated. To help test and bug fix the shop frontend and administration dashboard further, v2.4.0 will start as a beta release series for testing and development purposes only. The first set of releases will focus on new installations first and an upgrade procedure for existing v2.2/v2.3 installations will be provided in later releases. The first v2.4.0 beta release includes a core online update feature to 1-click apply update packages. v2.4.1 will be waiting for you as soon as v2.4.0 is pushed out to help test the online update feature. There are still a lot of changes pending so the following rules will apply for the online update feature: During the beta release phase: any file in the catalog and admin directories are applicable to be updated and will overwrite any local changes made. (Eventually all files will be updated once we move from the GPL license to the BSD license) After the beta release phase: any file apart from the catalog root files and shop template files will be applicable to be updated and will overwrite local changes made in other files (eg, in functions, classes, modules, and admin root files). If a manual update to a root catalog file or catalog template file is required, this will be described in the release announcement. As soon as we're ready to leave the beta phase and push out a production ready release, the version number may end up being v2.4.32 and will be marketed as "v2.4". To reach that goal as fast as possible, we will only be requesting feedback on testing and bugs until the first production ready release is made. Feedback for improvements and new features will be welcome after this to include either in the next v2.4.x releases or in v2.5. We have already accumulated a lot of feedback and ideas so we're now focusing on testing and bug fixes. The online update feature is just about ready. As soon as this is pushed out to github, all the development branches will be merged together and v2.4.0beta will be pushed out with a new announcement in the forum (with information about the App framework). Here's a screenshot of the administration dashboard online update page to tease and wet your appetite:
  9. Hi All.. Attached is a patch that makes the PayPal App v5.010 compatible to v2.3.4 BS. It would be great if this could be tested and feedback provided so it can be pushed out in the online update channel. The PayPal App should be first updated to v5.010, then the contents of the zip package should be copied to your catalog/ directory, overwriting 9 files. update.zip Thanks in advance!
  10. Exposing Admin Folder Name in Emails

    I don't know if expose_php could fix the problem - this setting can only be disabled in the php.ini file and not in a htaccess file. This is why only your hosting provider can change that value. This is noted in the PHP documentation: http://php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php I don't know. If it works for you it may be an alternative solution.
  11. Exposing Admin Folder Name in Emails

    Yep, if you move that file to your admin directory, the admin path will be added to the email headers. This is something only your hosting provider can fix. It would be best to send them an inquiry on how to get it fixed. The test code is using the native PHP mail() function and does not contain any osCommerce code or configuration.
  12. Exposing Admin Folder Name in Emails

    @mhsuffolk, create a file on your webserver and copy the following code to it, replacing your@email_address with your working email address. Request the file with your browser to send a test email. If the php filename is still being shown in the email headers, you will need to contact your hosting provider to get them to fix it for you on their end. <?php mail('your@email_address', 'Test Subject', 'Test Message'); echo 'Sent!'; ?>
  13. Exposing Admin Folder Name in Emails

    Can you please confirm that the mail.add_x_header value is set to Off on the Admin -> Tools -> Server Info page. The expose_php value should also be set to Off.
  14. 2.3.4 to

    v2.3.4.1 is a hotfix release that addresses compatibility with PHP 7 and MySQL 5.7. This is the changelog for the release: * Improve detection of MySQLi during setup. * Update session handler functions to return correct return value types. * Ignore E_DEPRECATED PHP notices. * Set empty MySQL sql_mode for compatibility across MySQL versions.
  15. This is strange as the minimum cURL and OpenSSL version requirements for TLS v1.2 are supported (judging by your screenshots). Do test transactions work with PayPal with "Verify SSL" set to True and "SSL Version" set to either Default or TLS v1.2? It might just be the test connection script failing under your environment.
  16. Just to clarify that statement, the SSL certificate used on the web server (to serve https) has nothing to do with the ssl libraries curl have been compiled with into PHP. Optimally, Verify SSL should be left to True. Try setting the SSL Version from Default to TLS v1.2.
  17. v2.3.5/v2.3.6 First Week in September

    Hi All.. Both v2.3.5 and v2.3.6 were planend to be released today (end of August) however a few more days is needed. This topic will be updated on the weekend with the date next week when the releases will be pushed out. Kind regards,
  18. Hi All.. Something (good) is happening to the Add-Ons website today. Updates will be posted here. 19:20 CEST The Add-Ons website is currently under maintenance. No new uploads can be performed at this time. This should be back in operation in an hour or so. 02:00 CEST Apps Marketplace went online at https://apps.oscommerce.com 04:00 CEST So far absolutely no errors have been logged. Yay. Following is some more information. The Apps Marketplace is replacing the legacy Add-Ons website. All existing Add-Ons are listed in the marketplace. As soon as our next releases are published with the App framework, the listing at the marketplace will allow filtering of Add-Ons for our legacy releases, and Apps for our new releases. Right now only free / open-source uploads are allowed - commercial uploads will be available in the near future. What's New? Here is what's new with the Apps Marketplace: You can now edit the title and descriptions of your uploads. (applies to main packages, for updates see todo list below) A cover image can be uploaded and is shown in app listings / search results. If no cover image is available, a color block is used. Screenshots can be uploaded. Zip files are now only accepted. (previously .tar.gz and .rar were also accepted; these have been converted to zip packages) Uploads of zip files and / or images will place the submission in a background queue for further processing. (this is currently delayed due to other tasks, ultimately it will take about 5-10 minutes. An e-mail is sent out when the processing has completed) Edits cannot be performed if the App is already in the processing queue until it has been processed. Edits to titles, descriptions, maintainers (granting other members access to upload updates), and sorting of existing screenshots will have the changes applied immediately. Searching can be filtered by relevancy and last update date. New submissions are set as private by default, as opposed to being open where other members can upload updates. Granting access to other users to allow them to upload updates is now performed by selecting the member from a auto-suggestion list instead of having to enter their full name in. Either the App can be set to allow upload updates from anyone or from a maximum of 15 selected members. The download button on the App information page is either a Download button to download the latest update, or a View Files button to view the updates that have been uploaded. The Download button is shown for private Apps, and the View Files button is shown for public Apps (Apps that allow anyone to upload updates to). This behaviour is used in case the last update to a public App is not a full package. URL Scheme Apps are now linked to via an App specific code of 5 characters. The following url scheme can be used to link to an App: https://apps.oscommerce.com/abcde The App information page links to itself with a canonical url including the title of the App in the following scheme: https://apps.oscommerce.com/abcde&friendly-url-app-title Either style can be used to link to Apps directly. Download links now have the following scheme: https://apps.oscommerce.com/Get&abcde That will download the latest upload in the App package. Each upload in an App package also has a specific code of 5 characters. Linking to a specific upload version can be done with: https://apps.oscommerce.com/Get&abcde&vwxyz Downloading Apps now requires a user account on our website. This is needed for the marketplace integration into OSCOM to allow one click installations and to be able to manage commercial Apps and licenses when this opens in the near future. Todo Member profile pages. Available 11/July Allow titles and descriptions of update uploads to be edited. Allow main packages and updates to be removed. Allow owners to moderate update uploads from other members. User reviews. Show download statistics. Allow forum support topic to be linked to. 22/August Redirect old links from the addons website to the new marketplace links. Redirects are now partly in place. 07/June Bootstrap v4.0alpha6 is currently used - still need to optimize for a responsive layout The source code is of course up at Github at https://github.com/haraldpdl/website_apps (keeping true to our pledge), it is however not a stand-alone functional installation. I will make sure our complete website is "installable" once all updates to the OSCOM v3 framework have aligned.
  19. Live sites

    The requirement that the site must be powered by osCommerce is no longer in place with the new Live Sites website. This is due to the many forks of osCommerce available and not wanting to spend resources policing each submission. Each submission is processed in the background though to make sure a valid website has been submitted. The listings now serve as an inspiration of what can be achieved in e-commerce, websites (v3 framework), user interface design, and technology.
  20. Add-Ons Website -> Apps Marketplace Migration

    Right now it's possible for the author to edit the short and main description of their submission where a note can be added. It's also possible for the author to allow others to upload updates to the submission (either everyone or specific users) so others can continue development. In the near future it will be possible for authors to remove their submissions. How should the flag work with that in mind? Should a flagged submission allow updates to be uploaded or should it remain in a permanent locked state? Should flagged submissions show in the listing and search results or be hidden and only accessible via a direct url? Should an extra warning be shown in the download window? @raiwa your feedback on this would be great!
  21. 2.3.4 to

    If you're already running on v2.3.4 without any issues, there is no need to update to v2.3.4.1. It would be better to update to v2.3.5 to apply the latest security fixes, compatibility fixes, and bug fixes. You will also have the option to update to v2.3.6 when you're ready to move to the bootstrap series. v2.3.5 will not break compatibility with existing addons - it's a maintenance release that will finalize the v2.3.4 release series and is planned to be the last release of this series. v2.3.6 may break compatibility with existing v2.3.4 addons due to moving to bootstrap. The 2.3.6 version label will be added to the Apps Marketplace once it's released so updated addons and Apps can be clearly labelled.
  22. Add-Ons Website -> Apps Marketplace Migration

    The "AJAX Attribute Manager BS" submission is now linked to the "AJAX Attribute Manager support" support topic.
  23. QTPro BS

    @raiwa done!
  24. Add-Ons Website -> Apps Marketplace Migration

    It will be best to handle such scenarios on a request basis, otherwise the next submitter would be able to change the topic at will. I'll set that support topic link up in the next few minutes.
  25. Add-Ons Website -> Apps Marketplace Migration

    It's limited to topics who were posted by the original author of the addon/app submission. Should this restriction be removed?
