  1. Hi,


    I've been using EasyPopulate for about 7 months now and everything is working great. I've added several custom fields to my database and have been able to modify EasyPopulate to handle these new fields without any problems. Now I want to tell EasyPopulate to key on a field other than products_model. I have 4 vendors I buy product from and each of these vendors uses their own number (sku) in addition to the model number. The problem I have now is that different products from different vendors can have the same model numbers and in some cases a product may not have a model number at all. I've compensated for this in my database by adding a field, products_vendor_sku, and putting the vendors sku number in this field. I've also added a similar field to EasyPopulate and now I want EasyPopulate to key on this new field instead of products_model. Can this be done? Can anyone give me some pointers?




  2. Chris,


    I've been busy with edits all day and didn't get to your last message.


    I would love to have time based reports. But even without them, this contrib is one of the most useful tools I have, and I have a lot .


    There are is something else that could be added in addition to the time based reports, downable exports. Something that would allow me to save the reports on my PC and not on the server.


    Thanks again for an excelent contrib. Keep em comming.


  3. Chris, Chaicka,


    I've looked at the two files for the font problem, but I don't see anything obviuos. But I'll keep looking and you know if I do find anything. On my system I only have the font issue on the initial page. All the other reports are fine. Is yours the same way?


    Is it possible to get an export of each report as well as the whole catalog?


    Chris, I ran the initial report this morning and sorted on margin. I found two items in my catalog selling for less than cost! I made a typo when I added the items and never caught it. Big Thanks to you for this contribution, I was able to find the problem before a customer found it.


    Thanks again,


  4. Zzfritz,


    Thanks for your reply. I found the problem but could not get into the forums to post.


    I have two catalog installations, one live and one just for testing. I installed your mod to my test site, but was trying to get it to work on the live site. When I tried the mod on the test site, it worked flawlessly, so I've installed it to my live site. Great work.




  5. Zzfritz,


    I installed the contrib but I have a couple of problems with it...


    I am unable to "drill down" on anything. I just get the "Monthly Sales/Tax Summary" listing and nothing is clickable.


    All sales are listed as "Exempt" even though about half of them are taxable. The "Taxes Paid" column is correct.




  6. David,


    Ignore my last post. I reinstalled (again) and discovered my problem. I used cut and paste to add the new code and it usually works fine, but for some reason my editor when pasting from your html file , my editor (QUantaPlus) would randomly turn on dynamic word wrap. I did'nt realize it, but a lot of the code was getting truncated. I don't know why I didn't have more errors, but anyway, I finally have this contrib installed.


    Thanks for the great work.


  7. David,


    I've installed the latest version of RMA returns but I've got a couple of problems.


    I've lost my customers, orders and gv_queue lists (maybe others) in admin. I get this error in my httpd log files...



    PHP Fatal error: Cannot instantiate non-existent class: splitpageresults in /usr/local/httpd/catalog/admin/gv_queue.php on line 100



    I get the same error for Orders and Customers, except a diferrent filename and line number are shown. I've checked for split_page_results.php and it does exist in admin/include/classes and it seems to be the only class that cannot be found.


    Line 781 in customers.php

    $customers_split = new splitPageResults($HTTP_GET_VARS['page'], MAX_DISPLAY_SEARCH_RESULTS_CUSTOMER, $customers_query_raw, $customers_query_numrows);


    Line 481 in orders.php

    $orders_split = new splitPageResults($HTTP_GET_VARS['page'], MAX_DISPLAY_SEARCH_RESULTS_ORDERS, $orders_query_raw, $orders_query_numrows);


    Line 65 in gv_queue.php

    $gv_split = new splitPageResults($HTTP_GET_VARS['page'], MAX_DISPLAY_SEARCH_RESULTS, $gv_query_raw, $gv_query_numrows);


    These are the only error showing up in my logs and in admin I just get a blank space where the list should be. No error message.





  8. Anthony,


    Thanks for the reply.


    This means it cannot find the class. I hate to ask the obvious, but can you go back and verify that you installed the original split_page_results.php file in the /admin/includes/classes folder and that is has the correct permissions. This is the only thing I can think of that could be the problem.


    I apologize. I wasn't eBay Auction Sales Manager.


    I deleted everything, restored from backups sequentially and things broke after I installed RMA returns system.


    Thanks and sorry,



    P.S. I've verified that I did restore the original split_page_results.php and it is in the right place, but customers.php, orders.php, gv_queue.php, etc. cannot find it even though they are able to find the other classes. Any idea what might cause this?

  9. Anthony,


    I installed eBay Auction Sales Manager, but I've decided not to use it. I followed your instructions for removing it and now some functions in admin no longer work. Customers, Orders, GV Queue and other things that use splitPageResults class don't display any results. In my httpd log I get this error when I click on GV Queue...


    PHP Fatal error:  Cannot instantiate non-existent class:  splitpageresults in /usr/local/httpd/catalog/admin/gv_queue.php on line 100


    I get the same error for Orders and Customers, except a diferrent filename and line number are shown.


    When I removed eBay Auction Sales Manager I restored the original catalog/admin/includes/classes/split_page_results.php but that doesn't seem to make any diferrence. Can you tell me how to correct this or at least where to start looking?




  10. OregonBum,


    I fianlly got it working and I think I have it pretty well figured out. When I have some time I will post some additional instructions for using this with both right and left columns turned on as well as the banner manager and a couple of custom boxes.




  11. Your problem of not having the center info show up is because you've got an IF statement in the wrong place - again, something I plainly addressed in my readme files & in the comments at the top of the pages that I modified




    I'm going to go back over things today, your README firmly in hand. Can you point me in the right direction to look for the IF statement mentioned above?




  12. Chris,


    I hope you can help. I have not been able to get this to work. I have followed your instructions very closely with 3 or 4 different installs of SECv2_2 and I can only get about 75% of my sight to load.


    I get the header, footer (minus counter) and the main content windows, but in the middle of loading the "Featured Products" box it just stops. The first couple of images on the left of the Featured Products box load but in the top box, "New Products" none of the images load and I have no right column at all, just empty space. All of the links that do load work, even the links with no image. Any suggestion?




  13. Ok,


    I had some spare time at lunch today so I backed up my catalog and my database and then installed eBay Auction Sales Manager to my SECV2_2MS2GV installation. Installation went fine except that the locations/line numbers are off a bit due to the other installed contribs. Not a big deal.


    Because SEC includes a contrib to set admin levels, I had to add the the Auction Manager tools to Admins permissions. Easy enough.


    I ran a simple transaction to test things. I got hung up at the first step of the checkout process with the same shipping problems others here have reported. I set "Use eBay shipping charges for ..." to false and now everything seems to be working great.


    One problem I did have and don't know how serious it is. While I was trying to figure out the shipping issue, I found the following entry repeated several times in my Apache error_log ...


    [Wed Jan 14 14:36:42 2004] [error] PHP Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated - argument passed by value; If you would like to pass it by reference, modify the declaration of fsockopen(). If you would like to enable call-time pass-by-reference, you can set allow_call_time_pass_reference to true in your INI file. However, future versions may not support this any longer. in /usr/local/httpd/catalog/includes/classes/net_http_client.php on line 632


    I made the change suggested and restarted Apache and the error message has not returned, but since the shipping issue was resolved with a settings change in admin, I don't know if the above error caused any real problems. Just thought I'd let you know about it.


    Thanks for a great contrib.


  14. Thanks Anthony,


    Linda's SECV2_2MS2GV is osCommerce MS2 with the SEC (Shop Enhancement Controller) and GV contribs allready installed. SEC is a bunch (20 or so) of contribs in one. Great package but sometimes it's a problem trying to add other contribs to it.


    If no one else has tried this by Friday, I'll give it a shot and post back here. Maybe sooner if work gets slow.




  15. Dave,


    Thanks for these instructions. I had just looked at the EP code to figure out how to add some more fields for SECv2 (to support list price, discount quanty, discount rate and discount type, 8 new fields). This saved me a bunch of time. One thing though, I thought the field location was NOT critical in the EP code. My first import scrambled the discounts and list price. I moved the block of new fields and everything works. Great!


    Now I have one question. While I was modifying the code I noticed support for Linda's header tag contrib. I don't have this contrib but I do have SEC which includes it. How can I let EP know to support the header tags?


    Thanks again,

    Rick Knight



  16. Is it possible to get SECv2 and EasyPopulate to work together? I've modified everything I can think to modify but I still can't get EasyPopulate to work. I did finally get the admin menu option for EP to show, but when I click on it I get a message say I am forbidden to run it. My permissions are correct. Has anyone had any success with this combination?
