    New V2 Forum

    " Support for older versions of osCommerce may be offered on these Forums, temporarily, although we encourage all users to move to the new, better, and more secure version. Support for other Ecommerce platforms and osCommerce forks WILL NOT be offered on these Forums. " I am two minded about investing the time and money in starting up a brand new domain and forum as a meeting place for people still interested in V2 osCommerce. The forum will be non commercial, for information exchange only, as osCommerce was in the beginning. How many people interested in this idea ?

    New V2 Forum

    @osCommerce-Official I have received your take down request citing trademark violation. So I have removed the content from the aforementioned website. You can go ahead and remove my contribution in this thread too, before I receive a similar ridiculous request which I am not in the mood for.

    There's some configuration to do, https://www.v2oscommerce.co.za/index.php if the above do not work.

    osCommerce site and Forums update notice

    I think you're missing the point. You could have had progress and just let the old addons be. Now you risk losing both. BTW its not only the addons, but all the information that went along with each contribution people have made over 2 decades.

    osCommerce site and Forums update notice

    a gross miscalculation IMO. Some people have already decided not to use V4. This action, without notice to the community even, will only reinforce that sentiment further.
  7. 4th post in that thread.
  8. Upgrade to this version:
  9. <span class="pull-right"> pull-right is deprecated now in BS4/5, should be float-end.

    Create a New Theme

    How long should it take to copy an existing theme? I see the folders created on the server, but when i apply the theme to a sales channel it is blank. The screen hangs like this.

    delete remove fake customers spam

    There won't be issues. And this will be a once off exercise assuming your forms have some kind of protection now.

    delete remove fake customers spam

    No. but you can delete them 500 at a time after a visual check and assuming there are no legitimate customers in between. Afterwards you need to go check the tables mentioned in the above posts - customer_info and address_book.

    delete remove fake customers spam

    customers_info maybe ... anyway this is how I would do it. Should not take that long. You can delete up to 500 rows at a time.

    delete remove fake customers spam

    Do this from phpMyadmin, and delete them manually from the customers table. Even if you have thousands of fake accounts you still want to know what you have deleted, to avoid deleting legitimate accounts.

  16. You're not going to get support for the version you still have.

    htaccess redirect

    A simple redirect will work: Redirect 301 /product-name-pr-64.html /product-name-p-64.html

    NEED ADVICE ON MY OS COMMERCE WEBSITE

    Have a look at this contribution of mine: I have done all the work for someone in your position with an old osCommerce. You could migrate your shop to this relatively easy and still be familiar with the product. You would have a responsive framework and up to date code. You can use this as a stepping stone if you later wish to go onto V4.

    NEED ADVICE ON MY OS COMMERCE WEBSITE

    Look for this code in footer.php and then move it to the location where you want it to display. <?php if ($banner = tep_banner_exists('dynamic', 'footer')) { echo tep_display_banner('static', $banner); } ?>

    NEED ADVICE ON MY OS COMMERCE WEBSITE

    I have sent you a PM regarding hosting. The banner code you should be able to move from the footer.php to say header.php and they will display there.

    There are capable hosting companies in SA, do some research. It may also be better for SEO if your server is located in your geographic region. Shared hosting you can get from about R100pm on a monthly basis. SEO does not depend on the underlying script. The principles of optimisation are the same whether you're using osCommerce, Wordpress, or anything else. My advice is to read the Google SEO starter guide, it's evolved into quite a document now. And beware of SEO myths, including on this forum. V4 will be responsive, and have the SEO tools to configure meta tags and do the basic things. The downside of V4, IMO, will be the steep learning curve.
  22. Honestly, modifying stylesheet.css directly is perfectly fine. It was the way of osCommerce, before the guidances of the community edition set in.
  23. If you ask more specific questions, maybe we will be able to help you. Otherwise the scope of your question is too big. In general if you want to use V2 osCommerce today, you have to use one of it's forks. I have already pointed out one. Vanilla osCommerce is another one to be found on this forum. Phoenix is another to be found on their own forum. Alternatively wait for the release of the official V4 osCommerce.
