    Removing fake customers

    are they using the same IP address? if they are you could block them, that way.
  2. I am already on frozen, is there any point in upgrading to this version?

    session db table is getting very large

    I had a problem when i first moved to PHP 7.X, that the sessions table would not clear, after some digging i noticed that my session.gc_probability was set to 0 you can see what it is set to by checking your server info within tools. then just scroll down or search for it. to fix it i just set session.gc_probability to 1 by putting/changing session.gc_probability = 1 in my php.ini file
  5. Just a fiddle with the addon, and noticed a few things any reason for having two header modules instead of just the one? - one for the css the other for java script could you not just do something like the below - similar was done for the colourbox header tag as part of the product info page $oscTemplate->addBlock( '<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/OwlCarousel2/2.3.4/owl.carousel.js"></script>' . "\n", $this->group); $oscTemplate->addBlock( '<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/OwlCarousel2/2.3.4/assets/owl.carousel.css">' . "\n", 'header_tags'); $oscTemplate->addBlock( '<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/OwlCarousel2/2.3.4/assets/owl.theme.default.css">' . "\n", 'header_tags'); tried turning on showing the product descriptions, and got an error on featured_products_carousel.php line 37 should tep_i_featured_products_carousel_limit_text not be tep_fp_featured_products_carousel_limit_text noticed it was possible to have a product shown, after being selected as a featured product been set to inactive I managed to fix that by adding product_status to the query that gets the information to be shown, then warping the array that outputs the product info in a if statement that checks the product status - not sure if that is the best way of achieving that, but it worked for me.

    IIS report php-cgi exited unexpectedly

    What you can do in plesk is have a different PHP version for each domain. E.g. my server shipped with PHP 5.3 but I installed PHP 5.6 and then later PHP 7.1 Tools & Setting Updatesand Upgrades . Add/remove components web hosting Php interpreter version it will now provide a list of available PHP versions you can install Click on the which version(s) you want to install Plesk will then download and install them for you For the domain you want to change the PHP for you will need to click on PHP settings Near the top you get two drop-down one for PHP version and the second for how it should run. In my case it says fastcgi application server by Apache Those steps where based on plesk 17.8 on Linux, you may get slightly different options I did get PHP 5 from is vendor and a separate PHP 5.3 I could install What you can do is have PHP 5.2 on your current site setup a sub domain for it and have that run on a newer version of PHP. Plesk will also keep any PHP installed this way up to date with any updates.
  7. Just some features that I have put in my checkout Select2 https://select2.org/getting-started/basic-usage, which can be used in the country / state drop down menus. This allows you to either the drop-down as normal, or you can start to type in and it will filter the results As I only got one shipping method I skip. The shipping page the same can be done for the payment method page Use jQuery validation https://jqueryvalidation.org for real time validation of the fields instead of after clicking on continue
  8. I changed to using the css version a few weeks ago, in the tests i did it did cut down on the amount that needs to be downloaded (the amount depends on what icons "packs that get used"), have not see any problems using the css version so far.

    sage pay & php 7.2

    with the Sage pay payment gateways (other payment gateways may also be effected), which requires MCrypt on the PHP website it says that. The mcrypt extension has been abandonware for nearly a decade now, and was also fairly complex to use. It has therefore been deprecated in favour of OpenSSL, where it will be removed from the core and into PECL in PHP 7.2. Whilst my server admin panel allows me to install any version of PHP that i want. is it likely that the Sage pay payment modules would get updated to work with the current / future versions of PHP.
  10. Better, still some screen sizes it will cut some of the text off, just an idea, on the product page you got the special price in red, but not in any of the product boxea same on the product page (well the Samsung Galaxy Tab at least), the right hand menu will cover over the last digit. also just a question is the link to the reviews meant to be that far away from the actual reviews, e.g. you have the you may also like boxes, and then modal etc info, then the review
  11. On the specials. When I had a look on my tablet in portrait, the price goes under the view/buy now buttons,so it looks like everything is either, $2 or $3
  12. @burt I would like to thank you for your work on improving osCommerce. in terms of modernizing it to work with newer versions of PHP, making it work better on mobiles, and most importantly making it easier to install add-ons. As most can now be installed without touching any core files. This makes any updates easier to install, both the addon itself and any updates to the core. To me it does not matter how many times you post something on the forum, it is more about what you have done/will do with the code. To me it is a shame that more people are not interested in helping in making osCommerce better in some shape or form.

  14. something i have just noticed. it is possible for the list of categories to go all over the place, if one or two of them, go over two lines (e.g. if you use a category width of 2 and have a category with a long title) i seemed to fix it at least on the quick test on my site it was doing it on and on the clean frozen version in the tpl_cm_in_category_listing.php, I just added to the second line class="row list-group" and that's all.
