    SEO Friendly Urls - a new approach

    I created another site with SEO Friendly URLs installed. I exported the database entries from that new install and pasted them into my working test database (the one that failed) using PHPmyAdmin. Now it works. I fully expected it to work just as you said: But it didn't for me - even after removing all instances of SEO Friendly URLs in the database (I think). I'm struggling with my web browsers after a recent Win10 update so it may not be your fine add-on - it could totally be just me! I'm not feeling the love for Win10 today. My project is on hold anyway due to a PHP v5.2 issue on the hosting server (upgrading to 5.3 breaks other necessary parts of the web site). Feel like I'm in way over my head (I do web design, not SQL). Thanks for the quick response. You rock big time! I may ask you to build the membership directory I'm working on now. OSC is WAY too complex for that job. But I don't code php very well (okay, not at all). I'll try your web site contact form again. Smiles to you.

    SEO Friendly Urls - a new approach

    My database became corrupted and I had to reconstruct. Many of the SEO Friendly fields in the database disappeared. So, I figured I could just use the uninstall SEO Friendly URLs option that was still in the admin. Did the trick - all SEO Friendly URL database entries gone. I then could not figure out how to reinstall your plugin once uninstalled. Oops! Any advice before I pull any remaining hair?

    SEO Friendly Urls - a new approach

    Awesome plugin! So easy to apply, worked perfectly right off the bat! Love it! I'm building an alternative practitioner directory based on OSC - showing "categories" (cities) and "products" (therapists) without all the buying bits. Reviews, however, are critical and so reviews seo useful.
  4. Thanks for the link - SO much to learn. In the end, I decided to simply not use thumbnails as in the original OSC code - preferring 300px images included in each product's description. That resolves the conflict and makes the site look better, imho. Fortunately, I have few products, so the job isn't huge.
  5. I found that if I make lytebox (or lightbox) the last scripts before </head> in my sts template or product_info.php, the script works. But, my other jquery scripts don't work. If instead, I place lytebox before jquery scripts, the jquery works but lytebox doesn't. Basically, whichever script gets played last before </head> works. I'm using jquery to show product info in tabbed boxes for some (but not all) products. Because I like the tabbed look so well, I'll put up with the lack of a lytebox (or lightbox) effect. It would be nice if both would work, though. Oh, well, time to look into a different method of presenting my product descriptions anyway - I never liked the "click to enlarge" idea.

    Tab Menu Section (TMS)

    Jim. Thanks. This looks like my error - I managed to download the wrong contrib version. I'm looking forward to installing the correct version after reinstalling a new version of OSC v2.3.1.

    Tab Menu Section (TMS)

    Thanks, Jim. Unfortunately, that plugin does not seem to work in OSC v.2.3.1.

    Tab Menu Section (TMS)

    I finally figured out how to post the product photo to one of the tabs (not useful, though) - I'd rather add stuff like "Specs" or "Details". I definitely DON'T want to add text that is applied to EVERY product (like that supplied by the contrib). I guess I could create new fields in the product description table... a real stretch of my limited phpmyadmin/mySQL skills - along with the appropriate text boxes in the new product admin page... another stretch of my limited PHP skills - AND the php coding necessary to show the text fields in tabs on the product_info page. I suppose I could post product reviews to one of the tabs... when and if I can figure out how to do that. I love the concept - just want to get some ideas on how to implement it.

    Paypal adds $2.45 to total order!

    I think it likely you have additional shipping added in PayPal. To see, login to paypal.com, under My Account click on Profile. Look for Shipping Calculations. Make sure you select the option at the bottom of the page, "Click here to allow transaction-based shipping values to override the profile shipping settings listed above (if profile settings are enabled)." That should do the trick. Best wishes, Joseph
  10. Thanks, Edgy, Unfortunately, that did not work either. I've tried every configuration change available in the easypopulate.php file, messed with the easypopulate_function.php file, adjusted my configure.php file. I can't get the darned thing to import. I still get: File uploaded. Temporary filename: /tmp/phpIj9uvS User filename: EP2006Nov29-1302-test.txt Size: 3916 I've looked in the /tmp/ directory and it's empty. Is it possible that the temp file is being deleted before it is imported? I don't know... :blink: I'd love to use easypopulate but just can't get around this problem. And I just don't have weeks and weeks of time to dig through the code line by line to find it. But when I do find the problem, I'll be sure to post my solution here for the next poor guy who has this problem. Warmly, Joseph
  11. I posted this yesterday to the wrong forum. :-" Gad, I hope someone can help me out here. I could add products one at a time, but my wits would be gone soon. And there are SO many pages in this forum! It would take me months to read each post - and that's what it would take since my problem is so vague. I installed EP v2.8-MS2 (and just about every other version, too, and I get the same problem no matter the version of EP) I downloaded a full EP data file into MS Excel, deleted all rows but one (for testing), changed the one product's model number and name, saved to tab-delimited .txt file and attempted upload back into EP. I get: File uploaded. Temporary filename: /tmp/phpxTrk0B User filename: EP2006Nov01-1503.txt Size: 411 But there is no new product. Some time ago, when I first installed EP (last year some time), I got the long list of products being uploaded and processed. This time there is none of that - just the little message quoted above. I have a sh*tload of contribs installed: STS v 1.8 Atecno Admin Order Editor Reset Counters Basic Design Pack Star Product Enable/Disable Categories Ultimate SEO URLs v2.2 Who's Online Enhancement 2 TinyMCE in osCommerce shipping insurance 201 Salemaker 2.2 for MS2v102 Cross-sell v2.2 Visitor Stats v1.7b Header Tags Controller v2.2 Links Manager for osC(MS2) v1.01 Does anyone know if one of the above busts EP? And does anyone have a fix for me? I've been playing with OSC since 2003, but I'm not a PHP wiz - although OSC has taught me quite a bit of PHP and SQL. Awesome! Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Why not clickbank?

    I think Clickbank is only good for downloads rather than products. You'd have to make it active for ONLY certain downloadable products while NOT making it available for other products. But if you had a whole site full of downloadable products, Clickbank is a viable option.

    Easypopulate - Product Status Cannot Be Null

    Try it again with a tab delimited text file instead of an Excel file. See if that fixes the problem. JB
  15. I'd like a way in which I can select a date to look at without having to click day-by-day back several months to see what activity a user did on a certain date. I'd just love to see a calendar similar to the one on the "Add New Product" page. If a calendar was showing on the User Tracking page instead of a simple link to yesterday, I'd love it even more than I do now. This is one AWESOME contrib. Thanks!! :thumbsup:

  17. :thumbsup: First things first - this is one AWESOME contrib. My hat is squarely doffed and I'm most grateful to the originators and contributors. This contrib filled a need for a client. :angry: I just noticed this same problem with my installation, too. I hate having links that don't do what you want them to do: [view session] = start over at today's date instead of showing the session. Probably better to not have links for past days than to have links that don't do what they advertise. I'm sure that the fix will have to deal with the date. Perhaps one of the more php literate types will take this on and fix this little glitch. Sorry it isn't me. I look forward to a fix to this awesome contrib. Joseph
  18. Thanks for the help, Rodney. I found your workaround. Now my site works perfectly for what I want to do. I'm wondering how I can get two or more rows of products. That way I could present all products in a category, rather than just the 8 that fit now. Any ideas? JB
  19. Thanks, Chris. I'm hopeful. I guess once I work out the SQL problem, I'll address the STS problem. JB
  20. :thumbsup: First things first - Chemo, what an awesome idea!! :'( Now the bad news - I got a SQL syntax error when I installed the contribution: 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 'BY products_ordered desc LIMIT 0, 5' at line 1 SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS BY products_ordered desc LIMIT 0, 5 [TEP STOP] I'm using the STS contribution and I noticed in an earlier post that the TCB contribution does not work with BTS, so maybe it won't work with STS either. I'm using PHP version 4.3.10 and mySQL version 4.0.22-standard. I can't wait to see this work on my site. Thanks again, JB

    Popup image problem

    :lol: Eureka! I managed to fix my popup problem. I had replaced the header.php file with the original from the OSC MS2 download. That stripped off the javascript portions necessary for the javascripts to work with STS. Now I'm having trouble with Dynamic Mopics. The popup comes up now but all I get is a text link to a nonexistant jpg file "/catalog/images/_big.jpg" when it should be "/catalog/images/voyagerxl_big.jpg" As you can see, the filename is missing (the portion just before "_big"). Where did it go? I've set my paths correctly in the admin so I'm left scratching my head. Maybe I'll solve this problem as well and I'll post it here for others. Joseph
  22. I installed STS as one of my first contribs on my OSC site. I LOVE IT! I'm not a php coder but can handle myself in html and am agile using FrontPage. STS was a perfect fit for me. When I installed STS, I suddenly had no popups - unless I set the "normal" value to 1 and the "template" variable to 0. Then, magically, all popups worked fine - except Dynamic Mopics contrib - it always comes up with a text link that does not compute accurately (it misses the filename variable when it prints to the screen). Even in normal mode, Dynamic Mopics won't work with my STS installation. Still, I'd be happy just to get the damn popup to work in template mode. I think the problem might be in the sts_display_output.php file around line 234: The next line is: and seems to make the popup work fine. But it also keeps me from using my very nice templates. Any ideas? Thanks in advance, Joseph
