  1. The contrib. author stated a few pages back that she would be spending the next few weeks on a different module she is working on. Could be a few weeks to a couple of months. ;)
  2. I really like how clean the one page layout is, also how you can modify the quantities without leaving the checkout page. However, I can't see a way to update the total or refresh it after I enter a new qty, maybe a refresh icon next to the red 'x's? Also, is there a way to do away with the scrollbar in the product listing when listing several items & the images too? Thanks! Chris
  3. Alrighty, I ripped it all out and started over. :) I've installed Simple Checkout and USPS Rate V4 Intl Rate V2 and everything is working great, it goes downhill when adding the World Postal / Zip / Post Code Validations v1.0 and following instructions for compatibility with Simple Checkout. I'm still getting the country bug, but as long as I leave out the Zip Validations, it seems to work great. Details on the country select bug are the same: Default 'United States' doesn't register as selected (red star, no green checkmark). Cycling through the selections by hitting 'U' cycles them, but when landing on any country it doesn't select it and give a green check. Clicking it with the mouse doesn't select it. I have to select a different country with the mouse, then go back and select United States in order to select a state. Thanks! Chris
  4. fulluvscents, thanks for the fantastic new addons! :D I installed the simple checkout and experienced the same country select bug that a few others have mentioned. I then installed the post code validations add-on, the compatibility changes with simple checkout and your new USPS module. I've double checked all my steps and as far as I can tell I've installed it properly. Here's the specifics on the bugs I'm experiencing. This is when trying to use Guest Checkout: Default 'United States' doesn't register as selected (red star, no green arrow). Cycling through the selections by hitting 'U' cycles them, but when landing on any country it doesn't select it and give a green check. Clicking it with the mouse doesn't select it. I have to select a different country, then go back and select United States in order to select a state. Other than that it worked great! Then, these bugs occured after installing World Postal / Zip / Post Code Validations v1.0, Compatibility - Simple Checkout for 2.3.1 v1.4 and USPS Rate V4 Intl Rate V2 - v.1.0. After entering the zip code and moving from the field, I get a parse error dialoge box. I assume it's going to verify the zip code through the validations? I double checked the changes to existing files and everything seems correct. I click Ok to make it go away and another appears exactly the same, click ok again, one more appears. After selecting Ok on the 3rd box, it goes back to checkout.php and zip code now has a green check. When clicking confirm, it goes to load the simple checkout and our good friend ParseError dialog box returns. Clicking ok brings up this error: 1062 - Duplicate entry '4hml1on1rrsria94oremevb352' for key 1 insert into sessions values ('4hml1on1rrsria94oremevb352', '1329673574', 'sessiontoken|s:32:\"fa28774186abc018db09e31aab83bc4a\";SESSION_SSL_ID|b:0;cart|O:12:\"shoppingCart\":4:{s:8:\"contents\";a:0:{}s:5:\"total\";i:0;s:6:\"weight\";i:0;s:12:\"content_type\";b:0;}language|s:7:\"english\";languages_id|s:1:\"1\";currency|s:3:\"USD\";navigation|O:17:\"navigationHistory\":2:{s:4:\"path\";a:1:{i:0;a:4:{s:4:\"page\";s:12:\"checkout.php\";s:4:\"mode\";s:3:\"SSL\";s:3:\"get\";a:0:{}s:4:\"post\";a:1:{s:6:\"action\";s:18:\"columnRightRefresh\";}}}s:8:\"snapshot\";a:0:{}}sess_discount_code|N;')[TEP STOP] This is in Firefox. With Chrome I still get country selection bug, zip code bug and the ParseError after clicking confirm on Guest Checkout, however the page loads normally with no TEP STOP error and I am able to succesfully place the order. With FF, it fails to load and gives the TEP STOP error. Any ideas? Thanks, Chris
  5. You should use a text editor or html editor to modify the file. You'll find it here: catalog/<your admin directory)/includes/functions/general.php.
  6. That's because you have the one in there from USPS Methods still. Search general.php for ereg_replace() and remove the function that you entered when you installed USPS Methods. Peace, Chris
  7. When I tested it I also had 6.1 installed. Getting rid of that and installing this was easy. Uninstall USPS from the admin under Modules > Shipping. Upload the files under New Files and make the 3 modifications to your existing files as found in the instructions. Once complete, just go back to Modules > Shipping, click install and choose USPS. Then edit the module, insert your USPS ID, selection your shipping options and specify a handling fee if any. Viola, your done! Hope that helps, Chris

    I'm in the same boat of no First-Class Domestic appearing with v6.1a. Everything else works great. Has anyone found a solution for this other than downgrading to 5.22? Thanks, PHRoG
  9. Hey there fulluvscents! I just finished installing your module and LOVE the simplicity of it. The installation was simple and it works smoothly. However, I do have one bug I can't seem to resolve. It's not showing rates for First-Class Mail Int'l Parcel. Here are a few options I would like to see, I think they are all the module would ever need. 1. Define handling fee for either domestic or international, instead of both with one value. 2. Ability to require insurance for either domestic or international and add such fees at checkout. With the above options, I would absolutely switch to this module! Peace, PHRoG

    Paypal express checkout problem

    expiration date only goes to 2020

    It depends on the payment module you are using. I'm using authornizenet_cc_aim.php and mine also ended in 2020. To change this, open up /catalog/includes/modules/payment/authorizenet_cc_aim.php and find this: $today = getdate(); for ($i=$today['year']; $i < $today['year']+10; $i++) { $expires_year[] = array('id' => strftime('%y',mktime(0,0,0,1,1,$i)), 'text' => strftime('%Y',mktime(0,0,0,1,1,$i))); } Just change the +10 above to how many more years you want to show. So if you wanted to set it to 2023, change it like so: $today = getdate(); for ($i=$today['year']; $i < $today['year']+13; $i++) { $expires_year[] = array('id' => strftime('%y',mktime(0,0,0,1,1,$i)), 'text' => strftime('%Y',mktime(0,0,0,1,1,$i))); } Hope this helps! Peace, Chris

    Best Google Base / Products Feed?

    Why do you feel yours is the best solution over say, The Feedmachine or jack_mcs' Googlebase? Peace, Chris
  13. Then you might wanna take a look at the categories table and verify it's there. Because that error says it's not. :P Peace, Chris
  14. It's saying you don't have the column categories_status in your categories table. Check the installation instructions again for information to insert the required rows for the contrib into your database. :) Of course, BACKUP first! Peace, Chris

    QTpro - Help Please

    Hey Angela, Just gotta take it one step at a time. If you don't have time or patience, you might consider hiring a developer to setup your store. :P I'm not running QTpro specifically...however I've heavily modified my own OSC V2.3.1 store to include well over 20 contributions and even made a few simple ones myself now. Basic understanding of html, css, php and mysql are very useful...you will have LOTS of reading and learning to do if you don't already have these skills. I'm not saying you have to be a professional or go get yourself a degree in order to do it, but learning the basics turns a bunch of jumbled nothing into something you can read and understand. w3cschools.com I found is nice, clean and makes the basics of these languages a little simpler to learn. After that, you'll find yourself staring at the MySQL 5.2 manual for a few hours at a time, LOL! Once you can interpret the basic ideas of the code, you can successfully troubleshoot it. There are several ways to import the SQL file. The most common method would be via phpmyadmin, this should be in your hosts control panel. If you are not sure where it is or how to find it, contact your host. Hope that helps! Peace, Chris
  16. You'll need to add rich snippets to your review code. Details here: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/05/introducing-rich-snippets.html
  17. Oops, I posted the wrong modification. :P Here is the correct replacement code: $this->parse( KissMT::init()->entities( sprintf( KISSMT_PRODUCT_REVIEWS_INFO_TEXT, 'Verified Member' ), $decode = true ) . '[-separator-]' . KissMT::init()->entities( $leading_values, $product_results['reviews_text'], $decode = true ) . '[-separator-]' . KissMT::init()->entities( sprintf( '%.80s', $product_results['reviews_text'] ), $decode = true ));
  18. Hey there! For security purposes I had removed the real names from the product reviews and replaced them with "Verified Member". I noticed Kiss MT was pulling the customer name and including it in the header tags. I made the following modification replacing the customer name with a max of 80 characters of the actual reviews text. In includes/modules/kiss_meta_tags/modules/product_reviews_info.php, around line 66: Replace: $this->parse( KissMT::init()->entities( sprintf( KISSMT_PRODUCT_REVIEWS_INFO_TEXT, $product_results['customers_name'] ), $decode = true ) . '[-separator-]' . KissMT::init()->entities( $leading_values, $product_results['reviews_text'], $decode = true ) ); With: $this->parse( KissMT::init()->entities( $leading_values, $product_results['reviews_text'], $decode = true ) . '[-separator-]' . KissMT::init()->entities( sprintf( '%.80s', $product_results['reviews_text'] ), $decode = true )); I'm curious if this will cause any issues? If not, I hope it will help others looking to do the same thing. Peace, Chris

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    Yeah, I tried FWR's version he made back in Jan 2010, however I'm using his latest version of Ultimate SEO URLs 5 released March 2011 and what his instructions tell me to replace, no longer exists...LOL! I think I'll just hold off on GoogleBase/Froogle until you release the new version supporting the new Google requirements and Ultimate SEO URLs 5. ;) Thanks again Jack! Peace, Chris

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    Hello there! I just downloaded GoogleBase v2.8 by Jack_mcs and installed it. I'm using FWR's Ultimate SEO URLs 5. When I try it with default settings and SEO enabled set to true, I get the following errors: Warning: include_once(../includes/classes/seo.class.php) [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/86/7797386/html/mlax/googlefeeder.php on line 101 Warning: include_once() [function.include]: Failed opening '../includes/classes/seo.class.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/86/7797386/html/mlax/googlefeeder.php on line 101 Fatal error: Class 'SEO_URL' not found in /home/content/86/7797386/html/mlax/googlefeeder.php on line 102 I'm assuming that FWR's Ultimate SEO URLs 5 isn't the same as Ultimate SEO URLs as I can't find the seo.class.php anywhere. So, I set SEO ENABLED to False and I get 500 Internal Server Error. I looked at my logs and I found this: [sat Sep 10 16:38:32 2011] [warn] [client 68.186.xxx.xxx] (104)Connection reset by peer: mod_fcgid: error reading data from FastCGI server [sat Sep 10 16:38:32 2011] [error] [client 68.186.xxx.xxx] Premature end of script headers: googlefeeder.php Wondering if anyone else has ran into similar issues?

    [Contribution] - USPS Methods

    Hello there! Thanks for the great contrib. I've having a few errors that I can't seem to pan out. See below: Error: Undefined variable: handling_cost File: includes/modules/shipping/usps.php Line: 371 Error: Undefined index: methods File: includes/classes/shipping.php Line: 98 Error: Undefined index: module File: checkout_shipping.php Line: 211 I'm running OSC 2.3.1. For the first error I look here: 'cost' => ($cost + $handling_cost[0]) * $shipping_num_boxes); I've verified the handling costs in the database and they are all currently set to 0.00. So I'm not quite sure why it's throwing the error. Any help would be appreciated! Peace, Chris

    PayPal Express Checkout API Problems

    The reason is there...it's just hiding from ya. Failure! The PayPal Express Checkout credentials are not set up correctly for the sandbox environment. array(0) { } The test script is for the sandbox environment...not the live servers. I scratched my head for the better part of a day before I figured that out. :D Peace, Chris
  23. I've running OSC 2.3.1 and I've configured the PayPal express module. I believe it's working correctly, but I have a few issues/questions. Once you select PayPal as the payment option it takes you to the PayPal sign-in page. Here it lists what was in the cart for each item it shows the item name, item number, the price and quantity. 1st, the item name is a clickable link and it seems to go nowhere, here is the link it generates: https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_flow&SESSION=R6l_XUxwhJCwKLZSI2tv4DzYOzWJKi-yivM2sxenQTxC7jb_LgSj9RcWAaK&dispatch=50a222a57771920b6a3d7b606239e4d529b525e0b7e69bf0224adecfb0124e9b61f737ba21b08198b897c0dd9782f17cd822063ff41faaba#name0 2nd, the item number is a bit funky and looks like so: Item number: 73{2}29{1}9 Has anyone else experienced these issues? Peace, Chris

    How can I rewrite the URL's?

    First...what version of osc are you using? Second...how do you need to change them? For SEO purposes? If so and you're using v2.3.1 I'd recommend this addon: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7704/v,23 Once you download the file, you'll have step by step instructions on how to install it. ;) Peace, Chris
