  1. Is there any reason for not making the entire admin section SSL? I have my sites setup to force the admin site to use SSL, regardless of the page. However, I do not recommend Forced SSL for those using dialup to access their server. Specifically if you are managing products. I think your approach is good, nonetheless. Great Job.
  2. Does anyone have a copy of Admin Access With Levels 1.5 or 1.6? I tried them all and these two were closest to optimal without making the change to using an email for login. It would be nice to know what happen to this contrib from the contribs directory. BTW, this was listed as contrib 1 before. Now there is no contrib 1 at all. Thanks.
  3. Hiyas, I think you have made great improvement on this contribution. I like the idea that you can get your password emailed to you if you forget it. However, I don't particularly care for the email address as the login name.
  4. Hiyas All, LTNS. Been away for a while. Just wanted to share an improvement on this contribution. Situation: After you add a contrib to the list, when you set the contrib active, you get a listing of the records. If you want to add another item, you have to click the link on the left to get to the default page for contrib control before you can add another contrib to the list. I made a modification to allow insertion of a new item after activating most recent. Modification: In installed_contributions.php FIND: <?php if (!$HTTP_GET_VARS['action']) { ?> <tr> <td colspan="2" align="right"><?php echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_INSTALLED_CONTRIBUTIONS, 'action=new') . '">' . tep_image_button('button_insert.gif', IMAGE_INSERT) . '</a>'; ?></td> </tr> Above the <?php INSERT: ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?<tr> ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?<td colspan="2" align="right"><?php echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_INSTALLED_CONTRIBUTIONS, 'action=new') . '">' . tep_image_button('button_insert.gif', IMAGE_INSERT) . '</a>'; ?></td> ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?</tr> This modification will provide an insert button on the page. This perhaps may not be the best method, but it works and is simple. =)

    Admin Access With Levels

    yes, it did seem to disappear. it used to be contrib 1 I have v1.6 of this archived on my server. However, I would like to know what happened with this contrib. Why was it removed from contributions? Well, back to improving myself and my coding. =)

    I hate replying to my own message...but... well here is the fix... In /includes/affiliate_configure.php, just before ?> ADD // Affiliate Banner Fix define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/'); Then In affiliate_show_banner.php, LOOK FOR <?php $pic = DIR_FS_CATALOG . DIR_WS_IMAGES . $banner; echo $pic . "<br>"; if (!is_file($pic)) { echo "failed<br>"; } else { echo "success<br>"; } ?> AND REPLACE WITH <?php $pic = DIR_FS_CATALOG . DIR_WS_CATALOG . DIR_WS_IMAGES . $banner; echo $pic . "<br>"; if (!is_file($pic)) { echo "failed<br>"; } else { echo "success<br>"; } ?> If that does not work for you let me know.

    I have the same problem with this mod, but I am closer to finding the problem. in the affiliate_show_banner.php i found that there is an entry for DIR_WS_CATALOG, which does not exist in my osC. I added it to configure.php at the bottom to make it report properly. define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/'); however, banners still do not show...still working on it

    Thanks for you reply sir LEO What is the difference between commission and customer discount you talked about? mmmm, I only sell 4 subscriptions so in this way avery client can get the commission discount by seting up a affiliate account. Becoming an affiliate does not reduce the rate they get charged for product or services. It only gives them a commission on the sales that are generated through their affiliate ID. Discount is different because it allows you to discount based on what you are selling. Commission and Discount are two totally different things, but can be used in conjunction to give added benefit. When combined, they can also be abused if you aren't careful. Example, if you are commissioning at 25% and discounting at 25% and your profit is 50%, then you have lost all profits. With the situation you have, I would implement some policies. 1. That you only mail out after they have been subscribed at least 30 days. 2. That they actually do refer people. In other words, No traffic from them, no money. 3. They must agree to receive the affiliate newsletter because it is the channel used for communicating information to them. You could also add that they must refer a subscriber if you want. But realisticly, their only job is to get the traffic to your site. It is website designer/store owner responsibility to make the site and banners appealing enough to make a conversion. I see what you are getting at. It sucks to have people sign up just to get a kickback commission because they are only taking up more space. However, on the other hand. Even if they aren't generating traffic, you have an email address that you can send newsletters, which could later generate traffic. Sorry if I'm rambling. I try to be descriptive and helpful..probably too much...=)

    OSC Affiliate

    Most of the mail text can be changed in /catalog/includes/languages/english/affiliate_signup.php

    My OS Store

    The most likely cause for slow loading is image size and possibly too many images. I recommend setting the products listed on main page to maximum of 6. You don't need many listings on main because you get about 3 product listings just from infoboxes. The default for new products is 9. Change this to 6 and this should help some. Then, the image size becomes a big factor. Try to reduce your image size by using GIF format or reducing colors or reducing pixel size, or combination of any of the three. Then, after you have done that, you can start looking at other ways to tweak. such as removing the corner images from the infoboxes.

    My OS Store

    I will help you if you will answer this question first. Why does the subject matter in your post differ so much from the subject you specified?
  12. I looked into this and the easiest way that I see is: Add OSC Affiliate to your catalog and then add the charity as an affiliate. You could modify your checkout page to allow someone to select a referrer/affiliate/charity, etc, which when selected would add the code for the "affiliate".
  13. Let me share a weird problem. I finished tweaking a game website. And yes, I used osCommerce to build a site. You would be surprised how useful osC is. Anyway, I installed the Guestbook contrib early on and it has worked great the entire time. But recently, after site has been running a while, someone posted and now I get a Divide by zero problem Warning: Division by zero in /htdocs/includes/classes/split_page_results.php on line 59 I have not edited split_page_results.php at all. I have a feeling that it may be trying to use a function that was in application top. I removed many of the things that were in app top because we didn't need them. But the weirdest, is that it quit working and no modifications had been done. Anyway...while it worked, I have to say it worked much better than the others I tested...=) Nice contrib nonetheless. It still works great on my other sites.

    product status listing

    Hi, I finaly found some time and will be finishing this hack mostly this afternoon early tomorrow, I am looking for someone to proof read the hack (my documentation skills are rusty). If you are still interested would you be kind enogh to let me know either reply email or post a message in the thread and I will forward the file to you for comment(s) prior to posting the contribution. Regards Seb PS I attempted to send a PM to your account but the forum threw back an error, and there is nothing in my sent box so if I have doubled up - applogies. ok, glad i found this before i started recreating the wheel. i download the product listing 1.0.0 but after reading the contents, soon found it wasn't for osc2.2ms2 anyway, this is something i need and I do have a test server to run it on. i can even clean up the documentation for you... please post or send it to me when you can. thanks.

    PHPBB Integration Username

    The biggest problem I ran into trying to fully integrate phpbb was the way it sets a cookie. It is not compatible with osC. Also, it is terribly hard to make phpbb to look like your site as they have the silver template fully integrated and it's a bear to remove. Right now I am using openBB, but mainly due to the fact that I was able to get lots of information from one of the programmers. I only had to add a field to the customer table called username, modify the create_account.php to allow this. In addition, I will later add a section in account_edit.php to allow current customers to create a username. I'm pretty sure that the same can be done with phpBB. But what I have found to be common among all BBs is that they all have gone nuts over bells and whistles. It would be nice if someone made a modular type BB that allows you to select which bells and whistles you want.
