  1. PayPal WPP Direct Payments & Express Checkout Support

    For those who were getting constant "loops" in the payment or shipping pages, I just (finally) found one error: In the Read_Me page, it states to make this change on checkout_shipping.php: 5. FIND the following line around line 446: <td align="center" width="25%" class="checkoutBarTo"><?php echo CHECKOUT_BAR_PAYMENT; ?></td> and REPLACE that line with these: <?php //---PayPal WPP Modification START ---// if ($show_payment_page || !$ec_enabled) { ?> <td align="center" width="25%" class="checkoutBarTo"><?php echo CHECKOUT_BAR_PAYMENT; ?></td> <?php } //---PayPal WPP Modification END ---// ?> Now, I don't know how I missed this the first 49573458 times, but when checking through that many pages it's easy to miss something at the end of one. The problem was that my checkout_shipping did not have that line. Now that the replacement code is tucked in neatly above the "CHECKOUT_BAR_CONFIRMATION" line, I'm going to watch how this works with customers through the day, though I didn't get any errors when testing.

    I have yet to see a solution to this, but about 60% of the time, customers are taken through a loop when using Express checkout. They log in, then click the PP button (either from the shipping page or cart), and it takes them to the PP site, then back to log in again. They log in, and try to do this same process, and it repeats. I've seen customers try it four or more times before just giving up. Sometimes it will work after the first loop, but not usually. However, when I force cookies, some people are then able to check out using PayPal. But then again, some are logged out and unable to log back in. This is very frustrating for the customer, and we receive emails stating so, but even moreso for the company owner. I've removed this mod (using the newest version, but have also used previous versions and had the same issue) twice and reinstalled it, but it still does this. Not to every customer, but enough that I have spent many hours trying to figure out a solution. Any insight that anyone could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    PayPal has been full of problems in the past couple of days. I see this on other sites besides the ones I maintain (not using this mod). FYI, they are supposed to have downtime maintainence on 6/10 at 11pm pacific (as I recall), so hopefully this gets straightened out after then. Had about 10 customers today unable to checkout and there's nothing I can do when it's an intermittent problem with PayPal express. <_<
  4. Simple Visitor Newsletter

    Couldn't quite fix the STS issue, so I just stuck the box in application_bottom, got annoyed with the format, and removed it. However, now newsletters just aren't being sent. It gives me this message in red: Clients that did not receive this newsletter: 2244 Only small packages will be send, as defined by constant BULKMAILER_LIMIT(5 mails) and interval defined by BULKMAILER_INTERVAL (12 seconds). Wait until the counter reachs 0. ? Nothing happens after I click the send button on that page except the "finished sending emails" which I know it didn't. So I try again, letting the first page just sit there for half an hour. Nothing. I've double-checked my installation, which is fine. Changed the email send settings in Configuration as well. Did I miss something beyond clicking the "send" button? <_< Edited: wait, you mean I have to keep going back and doing this over and over and over to send out the newsletter in small allotments? Fun. I blame this all on AOL users having their finger on the "spam" button.

    Those lines are in /create_account.php tsvenkat, I'm also having the problem with STS (apparently), but nothing shows up on the site. Admin side seems to be ok, but there is no box (tried different places) on the catalogue pages. I'll try and work that out and post here if I manage a fix.

    Same thing happens to some customers for me, but when I change the force cookies setting in admin to true, it works for people overseas, but not locally. It doesn't always happen, but about 70% of the time to people using paypal express, which is of course a problem. I did fully remove the old version, and have the newsest release of OsC installed.
