  1. Customer from Canton Georgia, USA somehow shows on PayPal as being from the country of Georgia, thus calculating the shipping rate to there instead.

    Contacting the customer I was able to sort out her true address and edit on PayPal, but she way overpaid for shipping which I'll refund the difference.

    Here's how her address showed on PP:

    304 Beauty Dr
    Canton, 30114
    GA, Georgia

    What a bit of mess.

    This occurred on a "mostly" Edge version of OSC

  2. Most folks are good, decent and honest.

    However, here are a couple of my favorite customer scam attempts...


    Customer:  I bought this item for my dog and it's too small.  Please send the next size up.

    Checking sale records we find the purchase was months, sometime a year or more ago.

    Response:  I'm sorry that happened.   Please return the item clean and original condition,  with tags attached and we'll process for you.

    Result:  Never hear from them again.


    Customer:  The item you sent is broken/damaged.  How do you plan to make this right by me?

    Response:  I'm sorry that happened.  Please send pictures of the damaged item and the original packing.  Thank you.

    Result:  Never hear from them again.

    Didnt Gary do a module to redirect old products to a new or similar product of your choice which helped with SEo. I could be imagining it though.

    Yes, and I think it was a "soft redirect.  Meaning,  customer lands on intended page, but a message appears to whatever wording you choose.  Mine is.."This product is low on stock or about to be discontinued.  Please consider this recommendation?  Then there's the recommended url displayed.

    The next activation (or perhaps the one after), you'll get;

    • testing123 (inserted via admin)
    • review_request (date changed from 60 days to 1 day)

    Report back how they look?

    Received 4 and all's looking very nice.

    You should be able to just upload the seo.class.php file. There is a change to the code in the application_top.php file, which you found, that needs to be made to prevent warnings with php 7 but no other changes are needed.

    OK  thanks..for application_top.php the change was from

     if ((!defined(SEO_ENABLED)) || (SEO_ENABLED == 'true')) {
       if ( ! (isset($seo_urls) && is_object($seo_urls)) ){
         $seo_urls = new SEO_URL($languages_id);


    if ((!defined('SEO_ENABLED')) || (SEO_ENABLED == 'true')) {
      if ( isset($seo_urls) && !is_object($seo_urls) ){
        $seo_urls = new SEO_URL($languages_id);

    if I have that correct.

    Otherwise with the  new seo.class.php uploaded should be up to date then.

    A new version has been uploaded. Itjust fixes the problem with the ConnectDB introduced in the last version. If you have applied the fix mentioned in this thread, you don't need the update. But if you want to apply it, just upload the includes/classes/seo.class.php file.

    Jack, I am two versions back on this.  Can I just install the latest or should I install each version incrementally?

    I am currently at Version 2.2d-16

    Thank you

    How can I prepare myself (a non-coder) to migrate the site to CE ? I do have some addons like min. purchase amount, and a custom payment gateway plugin.

    For the add ons you have and can't do without you may have to hire a pro to get them to where you want to be.

    I tried keeping up with the updates to get to frozen, but too tedious so I saved my images, config settings, database, etc. Then downloaded Frozen installed that then imported was I saved.

    A few hiccups to sort out but overall ended up getting there.





  9. using CE Frozen, running php 7.0.*

    In the error log I see these notices...not a critical issue at this time but for housekeeping purposes would be nice to fix.  Any ideas?

  10. @raiwa Just an FYI.  This evening using Chrome, when going to a product to edit I was getting "unable to load URL" or something like that pop up window.  In the edit product page the attribute manager would not show. Access to stock was OK. I just could not work with attributes on this page.

    No errors noted in the log.

    I then uploaded the new update you provided today, and still got the same message and result.

    I switched to Firefox and everything worked OK. 

    So back in Chrome I cleared the cache in Chrome, and upon restart of that browser and going to edit a product, all worked..meaning attribute manager appeared again.

    I'm not sure what the cause of that was, the only thing I was working on earlier this afternoon was adding attributes and I saved a new template I created in AM and was loading it onto a couple other products.  Which all worked, then I shut down and later upon attempting to pick up where I left off the above happened.

    So anyway, just an FYI and mentioning for documentation in the event someone else has this happen.

    Actually, now that you/they bring it up, I've a feeling that Chemo's class doesn't close the connection (while of course the core db functions do that via application_bottom). So you have a double saving - one connection instead of two and nothing left hanging around after the page is built.

    @BrockleyJohn couple of days now and there's not been any max_user_connections warnings after modifying the code you provided. I'm going to watch the error logs further to see what happens.
