    Australian Shipping Module

    Yes, the Aust Shipping Module does as it is accesses the aust post rate calculator. It doesn't accomodate satchels though so if you use them you need to set up a seperate table rate as explained in previous post but you would not disable the express post portion of the module if you want the shipping calculated on weight/destination - ie not a set price. Satchels are a set price up to certain weights. Hope this helps.

    Australian Shipping Module

    Thanks Coopco, I think I've got it sorted with a table rate. Seems to work anyway.

    Australian Shipping Module

    I worked it out - I used a table rate for the satchels and removed the express post portion of the shipping module. This is what I used for the table rate which means that anything up to .49gms would be $9.00 and up to 3.00 (3kg) would be $12.00. I don't post anything more than that although there is now a 5kg bag I believe so I'll find out how much they are and add that as well (would be added as 3.01:18.00 (this is assumed amount at the moment). Enable Table Method True Shipping Table .49:9.00,3.00:12.00 Table Method weight Handling Fee 0 Tax Class --none-- Shipping Zone Australian Zones Sort Order 1 I also renamed "table rate" to Express Post Satchels in /includes/languages/english/modules/shipping/table.php as follows <?php /* $Id: table.php 1739 2007-12-20 00:52:16Z hpdl $ osCommerce, Open Source E-Commerce Solutions http://www.oscommerce.com Copyright © 2002 osCommerce Released under the GNU General Public License */ define('MODULE_SHIPPING_TABLE_TEXT_TITLE', 'Express Post Satchel'); define('MODULE_SHIPPING_TABLE_TEXT_DESCRIPTION', ''); define('MODULE_SHIPPING_TABLE_TEXT_WAY', 'Next Day Delivery within "Next Business Day Networks" - Australia Only'); define('MODULE_SHIPPING_TABLE_TEXT_WEIGHT', 'Weight'); define('MODULE_SHIPPING_TABLE_TEXT_AMOUNT', 'Amount'); Hope this helps.
  4. Hi, hoping someone might be able to help. I have installed the Australian Shipping Module and all is working. However, with parcels sent by express post within Australia I use pre-paid satchels - up to 500gms which cost $8.00 and over 500gms up to 20kgs cost $12.00. At the moment, (for parcels over 500g) the Australian Shipping Module calculates shipping using the basic charge of $10.80 plus a distance charge of X amount per kg or part thereof, depending on the destination. This charge comes out to a fair bit more than using a pre-paid satchel. Is there any way I can use say a flat rate or table for express post only but still continue to use the module for ordinary parcels, insured parcels etc and disable the express post part of the module to replace it with a table rate as per above ? Thanks in advance !
  5. Hi, not sure what I need to do/where I've gone wrong but for some reason (doing dummy order) NZ only shows the table shipping. Says "This is currently the only shipping method available to use on this order." With other countries, I correctly get other options - AusPost Int Air, AusPost Int Air Insured as well as table shipping. Can someone tell me why I am not getting these options for NZ ? I have a feeling it might be in the zones somewhere - I have the NZ set up as a country but not sure how I should define the zone in admin - I think this might be incorrect. Also I noticed with COD within Australia that the incorrect amount is being added to the order - the standard shipping is being added rather than Aust Post COD fees. Can anyone advise how to fix this please ?
  6. Oops, scrap that, figured it out.
  7. Hi, can anyone tell me where I might have gone wrong? I just did a test with an order from "Never Never CA 12345 United States" and the zone rates came up as "no shipping available to selected country". I may have set them up incorrectly. Here is what I've done. Any help would be appreciated.

    Australian Shipping Module Error

    Hi did you managed to sort this as I am having the same problem !

    Another Thumbnail question

    I had the same problem and a fellow called Matt kindly responded to my cries for help and I think this is what you are thinking of ? In any case it works perfectly. Step 1: In your images directory create a file called "large" (catalog/images/large) Step 2: Upload all your larger images to the images/large file - make sure you name them EXACTLY the same as the thumbs otherwise it won't work Step 3: Add the "/large" to the popup script - replace DIR_WS_IMAGES (5th line from bottom) with DIR_WS_IMAGES_LARGE. Step 4: You'll also have to DEFINE the large image, DIR_WS_IMAGES_LARGE, in includes/configure.php: define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/'); define('DIR_WS_IMAGES_LARGE', 'images/large/'); {Add this line below the one above}
  10. Amirage, how did you get on asking for support from Template Monster ? I purchased a template from them as well and need to make quite a few mods and believed that support would be provided via the oscommerce forums. Are we being ripped off somehow? I purchased the template because there is NO WAY I could do something from scratch - assume you are the same ? When I posted a question to Template Monster about a contribution they told me that they don't offer support for that and to come back to the forums. Spooks - what do you suggest people like us do ?

  13. Hi All, I have a problem somewhere. I just installed STSv4.5.8 over the top of a template from template monster. I downloaded the new files and I made the changes manually to the admin side. As far as I am concerned I followed all instructions properly (double checked). At first I couldn't log into admin but after reading through forum I deleted some white spaces. Now I can log into admin but at the top of the page I have the error //START STS 4.1 define('BOX_MODULES_STS', 'STS'); //END STS 4.1//START STS 4.1 define('HEADING_TITLE_MODULES_STS', 'STS Modules'); //END STS 4.1 at the top of the screen. Also on left side I don't seem to have STS - this is what is showing Catalog Modules Payment BOX_MODULES_STS Shipping Order Total Customers Locations / Taxes Localization Reports Tools Also, it apears that I can install and edit the the modules (default, product, index, popup etc) when I click on BOX_MODULES_STS - HEADING_TITLE_MODEULES_STS but I then get the message //START STS 4.1 define('BOX_MODULES_STS', 'STS'); //END STS 4.1//START STS 4.1 define('HEADING_TITLE_MODULES_STS', 'STS Modules'); //END STS 4.1 Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /mounted-storage/home61c/sub002/sc38042-KFBW/browbands.net.au/shop/admin/includes/languages/english.php:305) in /mounted-storage/home61c/sub002/sc38042-KFBW/browbands.net.au/shop/admin/includes/functions/general.php on line 22 Since I am a complete beginner at oscommerce and php etc etc I don't know how to fix this - what files etc etc, what to look for. Any help would be gratefully received !!!!! Thanks in advance.

    Headertags SEO

    Hi Geoffrey, yes I did. It has been suggested that this contibution in some form might already be installed on the template I purchased from Templatemonster although, if it is I can't see where I can add extra text which is mainly what I want it for. What should I do ? I deleted the install.php file off the db and the store is back up OK but I would really like this contribution. I am not sure where to proceed from here. I have contacted template monster to see if they can shed some light on whether it's on there or not. Thanks for replying.
  15. Hi, I downloaded this contribution after it was suggested on another forum and I am already in trouble. When opening "www.mysite.com/headertags_seo_install.php" I am getting this message .... 1060 - Duplicate column name 'categories_htc_desc_tag' ALTER TABLE categories_description ADD categories_htc_desc_tag LONGTEXT NULL; [TEP STOP] What do I need to change in the php file please to get it to install? I am using 2.2RC2a from TemplateMonster. Thanks !
