    Dear Jack, based on your suggestions, I started investigating the contribution deeply and it did not take me too long to realize my colleague actually installed an old version of your contribution (v1.4) instead of the most recent one. Therefore, I downloaded the most recent release, installed it and now everything works as fast as lightning even when "show flags" and "external checks" are on. There is, however, a code error which I have found inside the "view_counter_tools.php" file under admin: this error prevents you from successfully creating an .htaccess backup file. As a matter of fact, running the related function under admin/tools/maintenance tools gives you a 404 error. That happens because there are four wrong instances of the file name FILENAME_VIEW_COUNTER_TOOLS (which is correct), while the (wrong) file name in the file shows up as "view_counter-tools.php": it is sufficient to replace the four wrong instances with the correct file name and everything works as it should. Thanks for your valuable help!

    The bad link was actually inside the view_counter_country_block.php file. Removing the link caused the error to vanish on the catalog side and page loading speed is back to normal. On the admin side, however, the page stucks whenever I click on view counter/monitor: not only I am totally unable to access the monitor data but also I am now getting another type of error which is this: Unable to connect to database server! I am going crazy...

    Thanks. I actually downloaded and renamed the DB (i.e.: .BIN file inside the zip) as suggested in your install file, then uploaded the DB file to admin/includes directory: it is almost 600Mb in size. After adding the line you mentioned to the includes/application_top.php file, the following error shoots up: Warning: file_get_contents(http://api.hostip.info/?ip=xx.xxx.xx.xxx): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 522 Origin Connection Time-out in /xxx/yyy/zzz/kkk/jjj/website/includes/modules/view_counter_country_block.php on line 79

    Jack, many thanks for your fast reply! The site in question has recently gone online and is well below 9000 visits in the last 24 hours. I also tried to adjust some of the settings by turning off the flags and country blocking is not even enabled: no way, it stays slower than a turtle...monitor page in admin does not even load and on the catalog side the page loads completely white. Under these conditions, other than turning it off, I would not really know what to do with it...

    Hello Jack. I have installed your contribution on a modified 2.3.4 version and somehow it seems to be working (i.e.: I do not get any errors when I run it). I only have a couple of main issues: whenever I enable the contribution, the main (catalog) website gets from lightning fast to extremely slow and the monitor mode on the admin side gets really slow as well, plus it only shows data once every few attempts/clicks. Would you know what is actually causing the above issues? Thank you Mendoh

    @@greasemonkey Thank you. Installing this contribution is actually driving me insane. I deleted previous installation and reinstalled manually, however, the situation seems to have changed for the worse. Now, when I turn the contribution on, the best that I can get is the central area of main page only, no left or right columns: if I turn it off, everything is back on track.. Also tried this: http://forums.oscomm...80#entry1623850 but apparently it contributed to make things worse...at this point I am definitely clueless...

    ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    Hi everybody. I tried to install this contribution but apparently there is no way for me to get it to work. I performed a full "drop-on-top" installation (very first contribution on a fresh 2.3.4 install!), however, each and every time I turned the contribution on, it cripples my whole webshop. Here is what happens after turning on the contribution: 1) clicking on any product link redirects me to a "not found" page 2) enabling multi-language support does not work at all, it only gives a fully blank page 3) I am unable to use the standard .htaccess file, I only must use the htaccess.txt file (which I found inside the "extras" folder and copied to webshop directory), otherwise I am getting a 505 internal server error Is there anybody having any idea of what might be causing the above issues to happen? I am seriously thinking of uninstalling the contribution completely... Thank you
  9. Hi everybody. I have installed this contribution and apparently everything went smooth except when I try to add a new member to a group of administrators: in this case, I get the following error 1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'and categories_id=20' at line 1 select categories_name from categories_description where language_id= and categories_id=20 [TEP STOP] I get the following error I have tried to search for previous posts regarding this error but nothing shows up. Other similar posts dealing with the 1064 error either have different description or are not related to this contribution. Anybody has any idea on how to solve this issue? Thanks a lot in advance Mendoh

    Enhanced Contact Us for 2.3.1

    @@Mort-lemur Heater! Many thanks! To tell you the truth, I already tried replacing the 1409 value without success because I probably inserted a value that was nevertheless already occupied in the database. After reading your reply I decided to give it another try by inserting a fairly higher value (e.g. 2409 instead of 1450) and that definitely did the trick. Thanks again for your time Mendoh

    Enhanced Contact Us for 2.3.1

    Hello Heater. I have installed your contribution which works flawlessly on my OSC 2.3.3 website. Then I had the (bad?) idea to install this: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8031 Being your nice contribution already installed, I paid attention not to modify the catalog section for contac-us and everything went smooth up until I run the configuration.sql file which returns the following error: #1062 - Duplicate entry '1409' for key 1 Obviously, the http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8031 contribution is not working as I do not get the recaptchas anywhere where I should (create account, write reviews, etc.)... Have you got any idea of what to do to remove the error and complete the installation? Thanks a lot in advance! Mendoh

    Header Tags SEO

    Jack, after TWO DAYS of uninterrupted delirious search, on my way to a full rebuild of my website, I finally found out the reason for CKE malfunctioning. THIS: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6546 I installed a contribution named "Treath Scanner" which is supposed to inform you of possible security holes in your OSC installation: one of the security holes supposedly in place should be closed by installing the above fix, at least according to Threat Scanner. Too bad it totally knocks out CKEditor from operation! I have realized that the changes made to catalog/includes/functions/database.php and catalog/admin/includes/functions/database.php, as proposed by the above contribution, cause the HTML editor to stop working. Do you think the above fix is necessary to secure OSC database or is the 2.3.3 release alreay secure on its own as far as database is concerned?

    Header Tags SEO

    Hello Jack, thanks for your rely. This incredible situation is driving me crazy. I re-installed from scratch and HTS works with CKEDITOR on my local website, then, I uploaded all the modified files to the online website (which for the record is the one that malfunctions) and here we go again: no errors...and no text changes retained! I even checked the PHP and MYSQL version compatibilities, which are ok. I am really starting to think I will have to rebuild everything from scratch for real... :x

    Header Tags SEO

    Hello guys, I would need your help if possible. I have performed a fresh installation of OSC 2.3.3 + Header Tags SEO 3.2.9. I have then tried to install CKEditor and that is where the weird things start to happen: I get no errors of any kind (either in catalog or admin) about CKEditor installation and the editor shows up correctly on the admin side. However, whenever I try to edit any text, my modifications do not show on the shop side and do not stay on the admin side. Text stays into memory but any other type of editing (bold, colors, pictures, even a single change of line) seems impossible to apply. I have spent one entire day trying to figure out why, but due to the lack of errors I am left with no clue: I even tried to install FCKEditor and TinyMCE, but the results are always the same. Anybody has got any idea of where I might have gone wrong? Thanks a bunch! Mendoh

    products Listings

    Hi. How could you do that? I have tried all the available CKEditor contributions for OSC 2.3 but... no way! On a new OSC 2.3.3, I installed the CKEditor: although I get no errors and the editor shows up under admin, there is NO way that changes I bring to text from CKEditor window in admin will reflect on the catalog (shop) side. All I get is nothing done and the text reverting to its original status even when I click "save". Also if I try to add an image, a pop-up window from the editor appears as it should, but I cannot select a thing! (i.e.: it does not point to my images directory at all) There is obviously something wrong, but due to the lack of errors, I just would not know what that would be. Can you assist? Thanks in advance Mendoh

    Links Manager II

    Hello Jack! Many thanks, the error cause was just the one you mentioned and I could get rid of it by switching featured links off in admin. Thanks again! Mendoh

    Links Manager II

    Hi guys. I have installed Links Manager II on my Oscommerce website and everything seems to work fine. Clicking on the "Links" link on the online information box causes the Links page to show up, but also delivers the following error: Warning: Illegal string offset 'links_title' in /opt/lampp/htdocs/*******/links.php on line 79 Anybody has any idea of what the cause could be? Thank you Mendoh

    Links Manager II

    Hello pederb. I had just the same problem as yours and after spending two hours scratching my head about what could be causing that odd 404 error to happen, my suspicions were confirmed after I came across your post above. There is actually a typo in one of the contribution files which prevents the link in admin to point to the actual php file that shows the "link categories" page. To get rid of the error, please go to /catalog/admin/includes/boxes/links.php then, around line 24, you should find "FILENAME_LINKS_CATEGORIES": just remove the "S" from "LINKS", save the file and the error will disappear. I do not think I would have figured out the cause for that error without your precious hint above. Thank you Mendoh

    SiteMonitor

    Dear Jack, thanks for your super-fast reply! The permission settings actually had me gone crazy when trying to have Sitemonitor working properly...I was getting a lot of timeouts errors and writing permission errors. The only way I could solve them was to CHMOD 666 most of the contribution files including reference file and text files, besides, I have to CHMOD777 the admin directory whenever Sitemonitor has to create the reference file from scratch and create the daily log .txt file, otherwise it is surefire error. I really believe my host is to blame for all the above... I tried exactly what you suggested: no way, situation stays just as I described in my previous posting. There is, however, another very weird thing I have noticed, showing there is definitely something which does not work correctly: if, after getting 128 suspected files listed by the "manually check for hacked files" function, I exclude them all by ticking the main "exclude" box, then deselect the only hacker's file from exclusion list and update the exclude file, here is what happens 1) the hacker's file grows fairly big in dimensions and if verified it shows the update with all the 127 excluded files has happened correctly 2) when I run the manual check for hacked files again and tick "use exclude file" the ONLY file which gets actually excluded is just the one that should not (the hacker's file), whereas I still am presented with all the remaining 127 files I previously excluded!! The version I am running is a highly modified 2.2 RC2A Thanks again for your support, much appreciated Mendoh

    SiteMonitor

    Hi everybody. First of all, my congratulations for this very useful contribution. After quite some CHMOD tweaking on my server I managed to have it working almost 100%. There is ONE main thing I still cannot understand, though. When I click on the fourth button "manually check for hacked files", I get a list of suspected files: within this list I found what I am sure to be a hacker's file, therefore, I click on the main "exclude" tick box to select all of the suspected files for exclusion, then deselect the hacker's file. Finally, I tick the "overwrite exclude file" box and click update button. As a result, all the scheduled files for exclusion get actually excluded and the only file that is left is the hacker's file. At this point, should I immediately run a second "manual check for hacked files" and tick "use exclude file" box, I would expect the only hacker's file to show up, HOWEVER, that does not happen at all! What I get is once again the full list of suspected files INCLUDING the hacker's file...something which tells me the "exclude file option" is not working as it should. The funniest thing is that I checked the file "sitemonitor_hacker_excludes_0.txt" (which I previously CHMODed 666) at server level while all the above happens and it gets updated with all the changes! Anyone has got any idea of what is actually wrong? Thanks a lot in advance! Mendoh

    Protection of Configuration

    Yol, thanks for your replies. I installed the latest version of this mod, however, the story does not change. I still get the "Failed to change protection of /my/directory/file.php" error and I also realized that ON / OFF buttons on this contribution's admin panel seem to be totally useless: matter of fact, I see change of color status (i.e. from red to green or vice versa) whenever I CHMOD each file by using FTP control, only. Any ideas about where the trouble could be? Thank you! Mendoh

    Live Support phpOnline

    Almost forgotten! There is a third problem in my installation: if I try to use the language translator by enabling it in admin, I get a warning message saying that "translation system does not work on your server. Please disable it in config.php" What could be wrong? I searched inside config.php but I found nothing related to translation... Thanks again. Mendoh

    Live Support phpOnline

    Hi all. I installed this nice contribution, however, I am now facing two major problems: 1) it seems there is apparently NO WAY to have sounds working. No matter if I assigned 755 CHMOD to all folders, I still cannot get any rings whenever a new customer asks for chat support; 2) no matter if I translated and added the lang_str_it.php Italian language translation file, there is no way to have it changed by admin, I always get English instead. Is there anyone able to help me? Thanks in advance! Mendoh

    Protection of Configuration

    Hi, this is Mendoh with a problem using this contribution. I have installed version 1.1 correctly then successfully protected both "administration panel" and "catalog". After a while, today I tried to switch the whole to unprotected status and no matter the folder I always get a red error saying "Failed to change protection of Administration Panel" and "Failed to change protection of catalog"; if I tried to chmod 775 or 777 on server, I get nothing done and still wind up with 755 permission. Can anybody help me out to find what is wrong? Thanks a lot in advance Mendoh
  25. Insaini, I would really like to say THANK YOU for your posting. I gave up installing this contrib as I really could not get it working...after quite a while I decided to come back to see if there were any replies to my help request and I found your validation_png.php code above. I replaced the validation_png.php file within the original contribution with yours and right now it all works 100%!!! Once again THANK YOU! It is know my turn to give back some useful information in return... For those interested: it is possible to use ANTIROBOT REG + ANTISPAMBOT SUITE (Antispambot, Antispambot Contact, Antispambot Tell a Friend and Reviews) to TOTALLY secure your website against spambots. Installation of these two contributions is feasible and I would like to inform you all how I succeeded to do this: just install ANTISPAMBOT suite to secure contact us, tell a Friend and reviews boxes, then install ANTIROBOT REG to secure account registration and submit link boxes. When installing ANTIROBOT REG, to avoid any conficts, please make sure you completely skip the installation for the contact us box (on the other hand, you may also decide not to install ANTISPAMBOT for contact us and use ANTIROBOT REG to protect contact us page...it is definitely up to you). Hope the above helps! Cheers, Mendoh
