    Shipping Insurance option?

    I have been using the Add-On ~ Shipping Insurance 1.0 for almost two years with my OSC 2.2 store. Works Great! LINK TO ADDON: http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1069 - Quick story - I added this option/addon after a customers order was damaged in shipping. After this... I thought it would be a good idea to give the customer the option to add shipping insurance. That way... they can't say they would have taken the insurance if it was available. I have recently created a new store using OSC 2.3 Would anyone like to take a stab at making this add-on work with 2.3? I have to say that I'm very surprised that shipping insurance isn't talked about more.... Thanks for any help or suggestions from the group:)
  3. Question for the gurus... I was using the following Add-On for 2.2 - Clear Customers Basket LINK: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7295 I am now using 2.3 and would like to use the Add-On again. - honestly... I have no idea how to adjust the add-on to work with 2.3 Any help would be greatly appreciate:) Thanks!
  4. Todays Homework: Add customer testimonials to bottom of /login.php. With the use of banner manager... that way they can be rotated.

      Homework Completed. Works Great!

  5. Cord... I think I'm still confused about setting the dates for which customers I want to notify with the "review reminder" module. I want to notify customers to write a review on the 14th day after they completed their order. I figured 14 days was long enough for them to receive their order and would be ready to write a review on it. But, I don't know how to set that up in the following settings. I thought this would do it... but there doesn't seem to be a list of customers to send to everyday, and there definitely should be. Thanks for the help...
  6. This may help... Although I am using a different module - Contact Customers without Purchase -... this may be the same settings. I also run this everyday and have found this to work. - Set Days Passed to 0 - Set Days to Skip after 1 Good Luck.
  7. Thanks cord. Unfortunately, even when using cronless, it does not work. Cronless is very easy to set up.. so I know I'm not missing anything there. Here's what I have in the nopurchase module. Mailhive is set to - production I have this in the cronless url: http://[MYSITE] .com/mailhive.php?[MYID]=run&module=nopurchase I've also tried this: http://[MYSITE] .com/mailhive.php?[MYID]=run Cronless sends me a confirmation email indicating the cron was ran with no errors. But, I do not receive a copy from mailhive confirming email was sent. Also, after cronless runs the cron.... mailhive still shows that recipients will receive an email. When I manually visit the url the mailbeez runs all active modules with no problems. Hope that's not too confusing... Thanks for the help cord.
  8. 2 full days working with setting up Cron Job... still not working. I'm using godaddy... and tried everything as recommended. I have been configuring this in so many ways... to many to list. I currently have other cron jobs running for other applications with no problem... this is one of the scripts that is currently working. /web/cgi-bin/php5 "$HOME/html/folder/index.php" But when I try.. /web/cgi-bin/php5 "$HOME/html/mailhive.php?MYNUMBERS=run" or /web/cgi-bin/php5 $HOME/html/mailhive.php MYNUMBERS=run or /web/cgi-bin/php5 $HOME/html/mailhive.php?MYNUMBERS=run I have even added: &module=review... To all of the above. I continue to get either of these errors: and Thanks for any help with this. ...brain is numb...
  9. How to pick your battles. Decide between needs and wants when selecting add ons.

  10. I've spent the day working with this add on.. and so far have to say GREAT JOB - Hats off! Just one snag I've found thus far. I set up the cron job and this is what is coming back via email when the cron job is ran... For security purposes, when I first set up the store I changed the path to my admin folder. Seems that could cause a problem possibly? I am also using the IP Trap add on which traps ip addresses that try and access my admin folder. Again, which is not really the admin folder. Any ideas.. suggestions? Thanks alot!
  11. When all else fails... take a break.

    Nivo Slider for OSC

    Now... after fiddling with this for a bit, I found that I may not even be able to use it... Bummer! It's conflicting with another script on the page: <script type="text/javascript" src="lightbox/prototype.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="lightbox/scriptaculous.js?load=effects"></script> <link rel="stylesheet" href="lightbox/lightbox.css" type="text/css" media="screen"> <script type="text/javascript" src="lightbox/builder.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="lightbox/lightbox.js"></script> I would prefer to continue to use lightbox... therefore if there is not a conflict fix for this... I'll leave it alone. But again, this may be a good mod for someone that does not use anything that may conflict with the code. Thanks.

    Nivo Slider for OSC

    I've been looking for a good looking image/banner slider for my site when I came across this... Nivo Slider. Looks like a very good image/banner slider. I would love to add this to my site. I tried to add the code and files as instructed by the website. I figured it would take some code editing to get this up and running. I just couldn't get it working right... well... working at all actually. If anyone has any advice or can offer any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure other osc users would love this too. Here's a link to the site: Here Here's the steps I've taken so far.. and again... I'm missing a lot that needs to be done I'm sure. Added the following code to my footer.php file. (that is where i put most of my <script> code) <link rel="stylesheet" href="nivo-slider.css" type="text/css" media="screen" /> <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js" type="text/javascript"></script> Then added these files to my directory/: jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js nivo-slider.css Then I added this code where I wanted the banner to display: <div id="slider"> <img src="images/myimage1.jpg" alt="" /> <a href="http://mysite.com"><img src="images/myimage2.jpg" alt="" title="My Caption" /></a> <img src="images/myimage3.jpg" alt="" title="This is an example of a caption" /> <img src="images/myimage4.jpg" alt="" /> </div> <div id="htmlcaption" class="nivo-html-caption"> <strong>This</strong> is an example of a <em>HTML</em> caption with <a href="#">a link</a>. </div> I also added this to the same area that I added the other <script> (but it's probably in the wrong spot.. maybe): <script type="text/javascript"> $(window).load(function() { $('#slider').nivoSlider(); }); </script> Thanks again for any help or insight... really appreciate it.

    Image changes at different times of day...

    Isn't that all handled through the .js file? Here's the code in a nutshell.... Add this to index.php: - add before </head> <script type="text/javascript" src="timePictureChange.js"></script> - Create and add this .js file into root: function pixTimeChange() { var t=new Date(); var h = t.getHours(); var r1="pic1.gif"; var r2="pic2.gif"; var el=document.getElementById('myimage'); // See the time below. Note: The time is in 24 hour format. // In the example here, "7" = 7 AM; "17" =5PM. el.src = (h>=7 && h<17) ? r1 : r2; } function addLoadEvent(func) { var oldonload = window.onload; if (typeof window.onload != 'function') { window.onload = func; } else { window.onload = function() { if (oldonload) { oldonload(); } func(); } } } addLoadEvent(function() { pixTimeChange(); }); - Add this code into body: <img src="" id="myimage" alt="time of day"> Again, I think I'm just not adding the proper <img src="?"... hmmm.... Thanks.
