  1. Gives the ability to create new customer accounts from the admin area. The Customer then receives an e-mail with randomly created password Gives the ability to manually create an order for a customer via admin. Invaluable for entering telephone orders onto your OSC Site. From 2 seperate 2.2 contributions - all credit to the original authors. Needs Order Editor to be installed for this to work, Download at: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7844/v,23 Yhe code could do with cleaning up to comply with 2.3.1 standards - but it works on my site, I wrote the install after I had actually installed, apologies if it contains errors.

    Paypal / OSC Rounding Totals

    Hi, I have noticed a bit of an anomaly sometimes when customers use paypal to check out. The order comments come back that the order value does not match the payment total - this is only ever by £0.01, but never the less its quite annoying - all I can think is that its something to do with rounding. I am using stock Paypal Standard module and my checkout process as far as this is concerned is also standard osc I never encountered this on my 2.2Rc2a stores using paypal IPN A screenshot is below:
  3. This subject has got us all racing round (again) making changes to our websites to comply (or at least what we understand as complying). I seem to remember us all doing this with the cookie law..... This makes some interesting reading: http://barker.co.uk/cookielaw So lets do all we can but not get too paranoid........
  4. @puddlec Thanks for the link. A lot of my customers are old farmers who do not use the internet - so email etc is out of the question. The link ou provided gives details on recording verbal consent - which I will do in the order comments box when compiling their order. Anyone got any further comments?
  5. OK I think I am almost there, apart from one little thing that does not seem to have been covered. Scenario is that a customer places an order by phone and we then enter his order on our website (manual order maker and order editor) this allows us to produce the invoice and process his order as a normal web order - problem is that he will not have seen our privacy policy or any of our GDPR statements. The only way I can see round this is to read each customer a rather long and boring statement such as Any comments or alternative solutions would be welcome....
  6. @14steve14 Thanks for the info on the analytics opt-out tool - I have now added a link to the privacy policy to point to this. I have MATC installed at the checkout confirmation page which I point with links to the Privacy Policy and the Conditions of the website plus I have added text to the create account pages with links to our privacy policy. I also have the system set up to attach a pdf version of our terms and conditions, shipping terms and privacy policy to all customer order confirmation emails Many Thanks
  7. OK I think I have done all I need to do?? Stopped using Google Analytics and deleted the code (I dont use it much anyway) Revised my privacy statement using the examples shown here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-data-protection/privacy-notices-transparency-and-control/privacy-notices-in-practice/ Added an option in the "My Account" section for customers to delete their account Unsubscibed ALL customers from the mailing list Sent email to all customers explaining about GDPR, Giving them links to our privacy policy, delete account function and telling them how to re-subscribe if they so wish Added a mondial popup to the site informing visitors about our revised privacy policy.
  8. Im taking a more proactive / drastic approach on this.... I intend unsubscribing everyone at a database level, then sending the email informing them that if they want to receive newsletters then to re-subscribe. I will also include a link to our revised privacy policy and a link to the account deletion page.
  9. Another scenario that I have been considering is that when a customer places an order by phone - we then enter his details on our site...... Im considering having a printed statement to read out to them regarding data collection etc.
  10. I guess we are al going to have to cease using Recover Carts Modules?

    Google XML Sitemap SEO

    Hi Jack, Couldnt find anything on this during a quick scan of the previous pages. I have just added .htaccess code to my site to redirect the whole site to SSL as per post #9 of this thread: http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/410451-time-to-get-secure-if-you-havent-already/ When I generate a new sitemap it generates the links as HTTP - is there a way I can change the sitemap so it will generate all links as HTTPS ? Many Thanks

    [CONTRIBUTION] Sloppy Words Cleaner

    Installed the latest version (21 Nov 2015 by @@raiwa) and its working great - thank you :) I would like to take this a step further as follows: I use Create account and Manual order maker, to allow me to input telephone orders, counter sales, and transfer over ebay sales for invoicing etc. In a lot of instances this involves cutting and pasting address, name etc. This mod has its own create_account.php located in the admin folder, which links to an admin/create_account_process.php Im pretty sure that this can be modified in a similar way to the catalog/create_account.php without much effort. My question is will I also need to add the file account_word_cleaner.php to the functions folder within admin. Many Thanks

    Header Tags SEO

    @@Jack_mcs Hi Jack, Spending some time trying to boost my SEO, and have noticed something: I have added Header Tags Categories Description to my categories (the large box at the bottom) and it only appears on the lowest level category and not its parents - where is the code located that adds this below the category titles? as I may have accidently removed it when carrying out changes to my site. eg: Home Page Category: Clothing (does not show) Child Category: Mens (does not show) Grandchild: Trousers (Description shows) Many Thanks

    Do not skip checkout_confirmation.php with paypal express.

    @@Dan Cole Im actually using PP Express without the app - as the app seems to have teething problems, and nobody is answering support threads on the app - its @Haralds baby and he isnt around much these days. I have noticed a sharp rise in the number of people checking out with paypal rather than my card system since the facility for login with paypal and instant update were enabled.
