    OSC XML Feed - Help & Discussion

    Hello, Just thought I would share this for those who have added product descriptions and are struggling with illegal characters. Add this code which encode special characters. <php> if ($product_description == 1) { $row['products_description'] = htmlspecialchars($row['products_description'], ENT_QUOTES); } </php> if that doesn't work then you might try this; all characters which have HTML character entity equivalents are translated into these entities. <php> if ($product_description == 1) { $row['products_description'] = htmlentities($row['products_description']); } </php> Hope this helps, Simon

    PayPal not receiving Shipping fee

    I think it has to do with the shipping / order total module. I have just installed a test site, which you can see at www.gpod.co.uk and on a clean install and then the patch install, it doesn't work. I think its a bug personally!!! Simon.

    PayPal IPN 2.8 Shipping not being added

    Hi, I have recently installed PayPal IPN 2.8. All is working except that the final total being sent to PayPal doesn't include shipping costs. Is anyone out there having similar problems and can suggest a solution? Thanks, Simon
  5. Hi, I recently installed EP 2.74 and had some initial problems but have managed to get it sorted now. One of the problems I had were timeouts when uploading large files. Timeouts resulted in a blank page being displayed where the EP page should have been. This can be solved in two ways: - 1. add the following code to the .htaccess file in the admin section altering the variables as needed. These settings will override the settings in the etc/php.ini file settings php_value memory_limit 25M php_value upload_max_filesize 25M php_value post_max_size 25M php_value max_execution_time 900 2. Increase the php script max execution time in /etc/php.ini to 120 seconds. Also increase the maximum allowed post size and file upload size. Hope this info is usefull! Simon.

    [CONTRIBUTION] Nochex APC Payment Module

    Hi Leigh, Firstly, thanks for a great contribution! I am having a similar problem with regards to payments not being changed from "processing" to "received" when a payment is made. I am also receiving the blank email from Nochex with the subject "NOCHEX VALIDITY RESPONSE: NO RESPONSE" I think this all started when I installed an SSL certificate. I have tried all of the suggestion when reading through this forum. Would you perhaps have any other sugestions for me? Regards, Simon Ruddy.

    most popular UK payment module

    I have used Protx from the start and have had no problems up until now. Just recently I have had ?14K worth of fraudulent purchases made on my account within two weeks. Luckily I spotted this immediately and didn't send out any stock. Bank of Scotland Merchant Services have since closed my account with no notice! Protx are good but you have to set up your account properly ie. set up all the fraud screening proceedures that that have just recently put in place. Protx come highly recommended, but beware of Bank of Scotland Merchant Services!
