  1. I have done that 3 times and I can't get this system to send to the gmail account that I am trying to go to. Situation, I have had a mail account with company WFECA for almost 20 years. They are dropping the internet items that they carried. I have signed up with gmail for an email account. When I try to change emails under my settings, I get no validation email, I can view everything but cannot reply or start a new topic. I have to go back to the old WFECA email address and the validation email comes through fine, so I validate it with user name and code and now I can respond to you and anyone else. The WFECA email account will not be active after 4/30/17. So if I can't get the gmail address validated I will no longer be able to receive any email from OSC forums. Nor will I be able to communicate in these forums. I hope you understand my problem.
  2. I need help from master management that can fix a booboo in profiles. Not sure where this should be posted nor whom to ask for help, please move it if necessary. My personal email address is changing and if I can't get the notification email for the new address I will not be able to continue to get emails from these forums. This has nothing to do with the website, only here on changing email in my profile. My old address still gets notification emails but the new one cannot get a code to activate it. I loose my old email address last day of April. Lord I hope i have this message in the right place and can get some help.
  3. Can my 2.3.4 be upgraded to 2.3.4-gold version or do I have to start allllll over? I know this is probably covered in another thread. I am not much for understanding tech talk and techs can't understand me, so guess we will continue to plug along with this thing called a web site. The next thing I am going to attack is the USPS shipping module. I found a thread that looks like it will solve my problem on that. I have downloaded the Gold.zip from above and will see what I can do with it. Thanks for the links to the updated versions. I will do some reading and see if I think I can handle the change. From what I read the BS edge is still having plenty of problems. Not sure i am ready for more problems. LOL Thanks to all you people that support these forums and help dummies like me, that think we want to have our own web site.
  4. Well Burt you are probably right about me not knowing what I am doing because I certainly need lots of help from the nice gentlemen on this forums. I down loaded the latest version of OSC from the home webpage it is v2.3.4 The only one they have to download. When I go to admin, tools, define languages, and open shipping, or conditions of use, or privacy and touch nothing, then cancel that then look at the page is corrupt. (please see the original post on this thread, you will see what i am talking about the page being corrupted. When I go back to the file the opening <?php has changed to <!--?php and the bottom closing ?> has changed to ?--> The more times you look at the file without deleting the dashes (--) and exclamation(!--) the more dashes you get. If you remember to remove !-- at the top and the-- at the bottom it works fine. Thanks to (I think it was bonbec) that caught that error. I installed this clean download from https://www.oscommerce.com/Products on two different domains (same ISP) and both do the same thing. Thanks for you input here but it would be nice to know you or someone checked it out and put a newer version on https://www.oscommerce.com/Products for download. Especially since V2.3.4 is no longer supported..
  5. That worked first time, Fantastic!!!! You are going to educate me yet. Thank you so very much MrPhil. You are a smart fellow, I really appreciate your help. :thumbsup: Now I am off to find how to add more listings to front page. :sweating:
  6. Thanks MrPhil I will go searching for a search tool as well as the information to make the change. Also going to see if i can find where to change the number of listings that show on the front page.
  7. I would like to change the words conditions of use in the information box to read payment and availability. Is there any way to do this? I have changed what shows when the page is loaded, I have installed v2.3.4 (see attachments) Any help you can give is appreciated. Hopefully I will get this install prettied up soon and stop bugging you people.
  8. If you are using v2.3.4 admin Tools Define Languages to edit these files (be sure to click source at the top of the edit page and check the to and bottom lines. Your file could be getting extra information in this line <?php on the top of the source code. It might show <?!--php if so you will need to remove the !-- and on the bottom where it should show ?> it might show ?--> you need to remove the dashes before saving your edited file. I learned this the hard way and with the help of several knowledgeable gentlemen on another thread. Good luck.
  9. Yes Phil it is the tools function in admin that is causing the problem. I used Softaculous to install on the server and it shows v 2.3.4 I installed on 2 different domains. They both have the same problem when editing .php files using admin tools function. You have to remove the !-- from the first line and the -- at the bottom even if you just go in and look and make no changes.
  10. Frankl, I download Notepad++ several years ago and it probably did catch the error but my ignorance did not see it untilit was pointed out to me above by bonbec. Malcolm, I do download files edit them and then upload the edited file on most things, but it seemed so simple to use the admin tools feature. Thanks to bonbec he caught the error that was causing me to tear out my hair. Felix, I thank you for giving my friend the code for the information box files. She did not understand how she was to use it but we now have that ironed out and I have fixed her files. She and I both thank you. I believe this problem is solved and I am a bit smarter. You gentlemen have been good teachers. Keep up the good work.
  11. Thanks BonBec That must have been the problem, I have edited the home page https://dnlcrafts.com and it shows correctly. My only problem is the information boxes Shipping and Returns and such. Please send me the correct code for those pages If you can. Something evidently went wrong with the install. I use Notepad++ to edit the files. I learned long ago not to use word products because they put in extra code. At least they did years ago. Thanks Phil I believe I have found the problem with my files Looks like something has put <!--?php at the beginning and ?--> at the end of all the editable files. I edit those files in admin/Tools/Define Languages/ and any of the information box items. I guess I will just have to remember to take out the ! and dashes before saving. Sure would be nice to know why the source files comes in like that with the --- and such. I installed OSC using Softaculous so maybe that has caused my problems. I am truly grateful for all the information that all you gentlemen, Json, MrPhil and bombec have given me. I believe most, if not all my problems are solved. At least for the moment.
  12. This is the code inside of the index.php when accessed using mysite/admin/Tools/Define Languages/ english.php comes up with a very long list of files, I then click on index.php and this is what shows when I click the source button <!--?php /* $Id$ osCommerce, Open Source E-Commerce Solutions http://www.oscommerce.com Copyright © 2007 osCommerce Released under the GNU General Public License */ define('TEXT_MAIN', ''); define('TABLE_HEADING_NEW_PRODUCTS', 'New Products For %s'); define('TABLE_HEADING_UPCOMING_PRODUCTS', 'Upcoming Products'); define('TABLE_HEADING_DATE_EXPECTED', 'Date Expected'); define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Welcome to ' .

TEXT_MAINTABLE_HEADING_NEW_PRODUCTSand the product pictures are showing below this I do not know how else to explain this problem. I have copied and pasted the code that Json gave me way up top of this post and if cleared the problem. I tried editing and fixing by coping the code from Json's post several times and it messed EVERY TIME so have just left it alone. If I can't fix things any other way, I will uninstall the program and start over using a different version of OSC or go back to ZenCart. I had an OSC site years ago and it worked great until someone hacked into it and put a bunch of sex crap on it that I could not get off, so had to uninstall that too. What version OSC would you reccommend? Both my current sites are running v.2.3.4 Thanks to you and Json for all your help so far. I know I am a big thorn in your sides.
  13. No I have not changed the permissions on anything. The information box items Shipping and Returns is messed up on my site and Privacy is messed up on the other site I have. They were both edited in admin/Tools/Defines Languages and the files mentioned above. I have not dared to edit conditions. Contact works fine. on both sites. <!--?php /* $Id$ osCommerce, Open Source E-Commerce Solutions http://www.oscommerce.com Copyright © 2002 osCommerce Released under the GNU General Public License */ define('NAVBAR_TITLE', 'Shipping & Returns'); define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Shipping & Returns'); define('TEXT_INFORMATION', ' Your order will ship United States Postal Service next business day after your payment clears.

'); ?--> This is what shows to the public on my shipping and returns page. This in the nav bar Top » Catalog » NAVBAR_TITLE and on the page where my shipping information should be is showing this, HEADING_TITLE TEXT_INFORMATION This is on both conditions and shipping and receiving on two different sites..

  15. I have the same problem but using Australia currency. Installed v.2.3.4 responsive. Prices shows for a couple days then vanish. Anyone have a solution to this problem. "Switch To Default Language Currency" then the Edit Button is set to False" should I Change to True? I have another site that is running US currency, it is set to False and works fine, prices DO NOT drop off after showing for a day or so.
