  1. @@DAVID3733 yep, sorry I missed that bit out. You need to opt in to Google Customer Reviews, as follows: - in Google Merchant Center [sic], top bar near the right hand side: three vertical blobs give you an account settings menu - choose Merchant Center programmes - click Enable on Customer Reviews
  2. oops - sorry - didn't realise we were in this thread. Proper place for this discussion is here: http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/411084-addon-google-customer-reviews-gcr-seller-ratings/
  3. @@frankl The main issue here is deriving the shipping method for a given order - the date handling stuff is really a nice-to-have and pointless if you don't have the timescale for the method - and zone-based timescales also require knowing the method. The only way to get it for a standard osc order is to check the text on the shipping order total which is language-dependent. For the interfaces I've done, I've simply implemented a mapping between order total text and shipping method. This is easy enough to populate manually for a given store but designing an admin function that will list all these texts for a multi-language store is a problem I have yet to crack. The only reliable way to get the text that goes into the order total is to call the module for a quote. Since the language definitions are constants, once you have done a quote in one language, you can't do another in the same php execution. Well, unless you had one or other php extensions loaded that allow you to undefine constants but that's not a general solution. As has been discussed extensively elsewhere, the cleanest approach is to extend the order table (and thus class) to record the shipping method (and payment method for similar reasons). Perhaps zone bands for follow up might fly. From a UK point of view, I can see national, European and Global as three follow-up timescales. It seems to me the most important thing is to follow up after the item is received, and not too long afterwards. Setting a week follow-up on a next day delivery doesn't feel like a big issue.
  4. Google Customer Reviews GCR & Seller Ratings Google customer reviews and seller ratings used to be just for Certified Stores. Now they are being rolled out to all Google merchants. This addon presents customers with an opt-in form on checkout_success. Google follows up after delivery to ask for a review of the transaction. Once you have collected enough reviews, you can show a badge with your seller rating. Consists of a header tags module and a content module that can optionally be used in any area of the chosen pages.

This addon presents customers with an opt-in form on checkout_success. Google follows up after delivery to ask for a review of the transaction. Once you have collected enough reviews, you can show a badge with your seller rating. Most of the addon is in a header_tags module suitable for use in several osCommerce versions. This supports the opt-in and showing the seller rating badge as an overlay. You can choose on which pages the badge is displayed. A content module for osc 2.3.4BS in other positions on the page is also provided. The addon is also provided in a branch of Edge on github: https://github.com/BrockleyJohn/Responsive-osCommerce/tree/google_customer_reviews Download link to follow
  7. Thanks Marcello, I'll take a look. I confess I didn't go far into testing the existing code or running with E_STRICT, I just whacked in a set of refinements and tested them!
  8. Are you suggesting now's the time to pull off a 2.3.4BS Platinum release? Hmmm...
  9. @@ArtcoInc sorry Malcolm, I had included an earlier version of that file without the language fix. I have uploaded a new version of the package (1.4) with the correct file which should give you no problems.
  10. I just found a bit of code in 2.3.1 that needs php5.4 to work properly!
  11. You could just add a 'check code' button (that doesn't do anything) next to the coupon field. If they click it, the script on the field checks the code. If they don't click it, they can't complain!
  12. @@beerbee I'm sorry I missed your post at the time... was busy battling with safari! There's nothing responsively wrong with your approach - and I understand why you'd want to do it as the core solution makes the boxes fit into equal height rows but it doesn't make the actual box-shaped outlines the same height as each other. I think, perhaps, that you could have avoided the cardinal sin and not made any changes to the core code, though. You can assign height to an anchor tag if you change its display so it's not inline, so you could probably write your center-block rule for the first anchor tag in an equal height class, something like .equal-height > a:first-child {...} Incidentally, I think your version only works on grid pages with grid/list choice enabled. I don't think your second rule needs the extra class, you could select using a combination of the existing classes and the tag. Overall, though, it's a good approach for your own store where you know the heights of the images and the font size.
  13. @@MrPhil I think it's much better to hand it all off to a framework and live with whatever limitations it has. Now if you're looking for input to a framework you're writing and giving out for free... :D
