  1. Over 5 years I have setup a few OsC stores and they were all just average. Then I set one up using a template and it was painful. Then I got onto the Mini Template System and gave it a try. Incredible results (After a little guidance from multimixer!) and any issues were sorted out quickly, including some custom built modules. Initially a test site was setup where multimixer assisted with getting everything on the right track and from there, it was all so simple. Changing things in the Mini Template System is usually straight forward and if I do have a question, the response time is always very good. I would recommend that anyone looking for a simple solution to setting up an OsC store take the plunge and give the Mini Template System a go. You won't look back. Since my initial purchase of the Mini Template System, I have done another 3 sites and all were done in record time, all due to the mini template system. More happy customers. Where I used to do OsC sites when asked, I now go looking for the work. It really is that easy to use and that well done. Brilliant piece of work! Thanks George! Dwane - Australia.

    New Australia Post API Modules

    The International module is not included in that package as mentioned in the documentation. I will do the International module as soon as practical. Note that the Australian Signature/Insured Module has a small bug which will be fixed in the coming days,

    [add-on] Discount Code (support)

    Just a note to anyone who intends to use this contribution in conjunction with the Loyalty Rewards contribution: It is nothing short of painful to get these 2 contributions to work correctly and calculate tax correctly. Discount Codes requires that 'Sub Total' be #1 in the sort order but Loyalty Rewards requires that it be before 'Sub Total'. The 2 can co-exist together (After hours of playing around with it!) and be correct however I found that I had to turn of display of the 'Tax' module as it displayed incorrectly. The total and sub-total are displayed correctly even with the Order Total 'Tax' modeul turned on, however 'Tax' displays an incorrect value by not taking into account the Discount Code component of the 'Sub Total'. Example using 10% tax: $1000 Order Value $100 Loyalty Rewards (10%) $50 Discount Code $850 Sub Total $90 Tax ((Order Value - Loyalty Rewards) x 10%) The Tax should be $85 ((Order Value- Loyalty Rewards - Discount Code) x 10%) This work around simply does not display the tax on the Order Confirmation page, Invoice or Order Confirmation Email. I also ammended the wording in the language file from 'Sub-Total' to 'Sub-Total (Includes 10% Tax)'. This is by no means a fix - Simply a work around. I hope this helps someone get these 2 working together kind-of correctly!

    Ultimate Buttons

    I am having problems with this (awesome) contribution when used with MATC (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5750) We are using MATC on checkout_shipping as a "Must Accept Shipping Delay" (The implementation is the same as the original MATC) and after I installed Ultimate Buttons, MATC stopped working. MATC has a check box that must be ticked before you can continue with checkout. The text above the tick box also highlights if you hover over the button without ticking the box. However, after this contribution was installed, both of these features no longer work. In other words, you can continue without ticking the box which doesn't work for us at all as we are manufacturers of our products. I have looked through the Ultimate Buttons code and noticed that there doesn't appear to be a way of passing the 'parameters' back to the calling function. I am no expert, but that is what it looks like to me. function tep_image_submit($image, $value = '-AltValue-', $parameters = '') { global $language; $css_submit = '<div><span><input type="submit" class="button wood2" value="' . tep_output_string($value) . '" /></span></div>'; return $css_submit; } Can anyone indicate if I am correct or not, and also a potential fix (Without removing Ultimate Buttons!).

    Who's Online Enhancement 1.4

    I am having problem with this contribution after using it for the past 2 years or so. Yesterday the page would not refresh. It just sits there in FireFox with the spinning logo indicating that it is loading. So I tried it in IE8 and it appears to be working fine. I am wondering if this has anything to do with Google changing the API? I have tried disabling the ipinfodb.com stuff, but it still does it which is what makes me think that it has something to do with the Google API. Is anyone else suffering the same issues? And how can the map function be eliminated from the code as I do not use it at all. (I only use ipinfodb.com once in a while and it wouldn't bother me if it had to go too). Thanks! Sylvester99.

    Hi all, Has anyone got a screen shot or link of this contrib in action? I would like to see it before I go ahead and install it. Cheers. Dwane.

    I struggled with this problem also. Finally, I think that I got it solved. The install instructions say to do this: Change (approx line 254) $customers_query = tep_db_query("select c.customers_gender, c.customers_firstname, c.customers_lastname,...................... To $customers_query = tep_db_query("select c.customers_gender, c.customers_firstname, c.customers_lastname,....................... The problem that I found was that it needed to be changed to this: $customers_query = tep_db_query("select c.customers_id, c.customers_gender, c.customers_firstname, c.customers_lastname,....................... Like most of us with this type of contrib, copy and paste is often used.......just not always recommended. I am not a php programmer and I just fumble my way around. So if this needs correction, please feel free. :) Cheers!
  8. Just a quick hint for anyone having trouble with this contrib. After many hours of toying and playing, I found the following code change helped fix a problem with the dates having to overlap for it to work, and even then it still wasn't right. The change involved is replacing the code now() with curdate(). In includes/function/general.php replace the inserted code: ///Added Happy hours specials function tep_get_products_special_price($product_id) { $product_query = tep_db_query("select specials_new_products_price from " . TABLE_SPECIALS . " where products_id = '" . (int)$product_id . "' and status = '1'"); $product = tep_db_fetch_array($product_query); // next check is Happy hours specials check,if specials_hour exist and valid it will return the special_hour price $happy_time = date ("H:i:s"); $product_query2 = tep_db_query("select specials_price_happy_hours from " . TABLE_HAPPY_HOURS_SPECIALS_BASIC . " where products_id = '" . (int)$product_id . "' and status_happy_hours='1' and '" .$happy_time. "' BETWEEN happy_hours_beginning_time and happy_hours_end_time and now() > happy_hours_beginning_date and now() < happy_hours_end_date"); $product2 = tep_db_fetch_array($product_query2); if ($product2){$product['specials_new_products_price'] = $product2['specials_price_happy_hours'];} return $product['specials_new_products_price']; } // End Happy hours specials With: ///Added Happy hours specials function tep_get_products_special_price($product_id) { $product_query = tep_db_query("select specials_new_products_price from " . TABLE_SPECIALS . " where products_id = '" . (int)$product_id . "' and status = '1'"); $product = tep_db_fetch_array($product_query); // next check is Happy hours specials check,if specials_hour exist and valid it will return the special_hour price $happy_time = date ("H:i:s"); $product_query2 = tep_db_query("select specials_price_happy_hours from " . TABLE_HAPPY_HOURS_SPECIALS_BASIC . " where products_id = '" . (int)$product_id . "' and status_happy_hours='1' and '" .$happy_time. "' BETWEEN happy_hours_beginning_time and happy_hours_end_time and CURDATE() > happy_hours_beginning_date and CURDATE() < happy_hours_end_date"); $product2 = tep_db_fetch_array($product_query2); if ($product2){$product['specials_new_products_price'] = $product2['specials_price_happy_hours'];} return $product['specials_new_products_price']; } // End Happy hours specials I hope this helps someone. :)
  9. Just a note to anyone who wants 12 hour time format shown in the Happy Hour box: Find the following in catalog/includes/boxes/happy_hours_specials_basic.php: $uhrzeitbis = substr($random_product['happy_hours_end_time'], '0', '5'); And add after it: $uhrzeitbis = DATE("h:i A", STRTOTIME($uhrzeitbis )); This will display the time as: 05:06 PM From the PHP Date function info, you can change the way the date looks as follows: a - Lowercase Ante meridiem and Post meridiem - am or pm A - Uppercase Ante meridiem and Post meridiem - AM or PM g - 12-hour format of an hour without leading zeros - 1 through 12 G - 24-hour format of an hour without leading zeros - 0 through 23 h - 12-hour format of an hour with leading zeros - 01 through 12 H - 24-hour format of an hour with leading zeros - 00 through 23 i - Minutes with leading zeros - 00 to 59 I fought with this contrib for many hours before finally getting it to fully work as it is supposed to, and to change the time to 12 hour format. Good luck to anyone who tries, however if you are after this feature, it is an awesome contrib.

    [Contribution] Define Content 1.x Support

    Replying to my own post: I got it working. It was due to the wrong permissions set on the admin folder due to the way I installed the contrib.

    [Contribution] Define Content 1.x Support

    I have installed this contribution into my live store and now I cannot access my admin pages at all. I get an "Internal Sever Error" (Error 500). My store front still works and still accepts orders, but admin is shot. I didn't do the WYSIWYG edits, however I already have TinyMCE installed. I did notice that the define_content_descriptions did not have a primary key set?? Is that normal?? I have now deleted everything, dropped the tables but I still get the same error. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Store Mode (Open | Closed | Maintenance)

    Great contribution Scott! Very well written. :) And very easy to install and get going. One (Probably dumb) question though - Does the contribution automatically put the store into a given mode at the dates/times defined in 'Store Offline' and 'Store Online' dates/times? Thanks in advance, Dwane.

    For those having problems with the country indicator NOT showing up on the map, the following worked for me: In admin/whos_online.php: Replace line 414: geoXml = new GGeoXml("<?php echo HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER . "/visitors_georss.php";?>"); With this line: geoXml = new GGeoXml("<?php echo HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER . "/catalog/visitors_georss.php";?>"); This assumes that you have your store in a directory called "CATALOG". If you are using a directory called "STORE" for your store, change "/catalog/visitors_georss.php" to "/store/visitors_georss.php" It worked for me. :D And to get the icon to show up in the 'bubble' that pops up when you click the map indicator, change the following: In visitors_georss.php: Change line 21 from this: $flag_link = "<img src="". HTTPSERVER . FLAGSDIR . $image . "" />"; To this: $flag_link = "<img src="". WEBSITE . FLAGSDIR . $image . "" />"; Hope this helps someone!
  14. Hi all. Does anyone know of a contrib that allows the customer to input text on a product page which is provided to the store owner when an order is placed? I only need a single text box capable of about 200 characters or so. It also need to be able to be disabled per product. We only have about 10 products out of about 400 that need the text box. We make custom made items, and we often require the customer to tell us what text they want us to provide. Ideally, this would be provided to us on the invoice. Does anyone have any suggestions? Cheers! Sylvester99

    Birthday with combo selection

    I think these changes will also need to be done in catalog\admin\includes\languages\english.php if you want dd/mm/yyyy in admin.
