  1. Hi Jim No worries, thanks for the confirmation. I do optimize the database quite frequently, but am on a shared server, so don't know how much others are interfering or how much is actually my site slowing down the server. sooner or later will have to upgrade as we've only added about 5% of the products we want to regards Ken
  2. @@kymation Hi Jim Quick question about featured products and scroller, both work fine, but are very unresponsive when changing thro admin so I get around the issue by changing the products required in configuration table. Could this be something to with the fact that I have more than 30000 products so the drop down boxes are taking a lot of time to populate ? Regards Ken
  3. @@m0jon My apologies Jon, sorry wasn't ignoring you, just logged on for the first time in ages, but looks like you fixed it anyway. ken
  4. @@EuRoPLaSTiKs Are you using v2.3.1 or above, if so my understanding is that page width is set by the 960 grid system, theres loads of post about 960gs, tyr this for example hope this helps ken
  5. @@sharperjafs Have a look at this thread It seems to offer something like, but I think you'll need to convert the add on to v2.3 ken Also try
  6. Hi Clint this is closest thing i've found so far ken
  7. @@pweden, did you ever get the add on to work, if not. I just noticed that if you set up Send Extra Order Email in admin-configuration-mystore, it appears to send full details of the order. ken
  8. @@pweden The Paypal page I'm taken to is nothing like the screenshot, you've posted, it is identical the one that 14steve14 described above. Before you tried installing the add on in this string, did your paypal page have the option for payment by credit card. Are we understanding the process you've gone through correctly - 1. You have a Paypal Business/premier or above account using Website Payments standard 2. You've installed Website payments standard via your admin 3. On a v2.3.1 site, which had no other alterations to the paypal website payment standard files 4. You then tried to add the better description add on and things have then gone downhill. because the add on should only affect the descriptions of the products bought on the left hand side of your screenshot not the payment options ken
  9. Hi Weston please ignore last paragraph of above, god knows what i was thinking
  10. Hi Chris, I'm not using any templates, I re-downloaded v2.3.1 and tried to find the second instance of the code block concerned, but just can not see it. Either I am just being dumb, or the instruction is for v2.2 Probably me being dumb. ken
  11. Hi Chris Thanks for the link, but I'm still a bit unsure about it as the installation file tells me in part 2 find 2, to locate the second occurence of <?php } else { ?> <tr> <td class="main" colspan="3"><?php echo '<b>' . HEADING_PRODUCTS . '</b> <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_SHOPPING_CART) . '"><span class="orderEdit">(' . TEXT_EDIT . ')</span></a>'; ?></td> </tr> <?php } for ($i=0, $n=sizeof($order->products); $i<$n; $i++) { within catalog/checkout_confirmation.php but I can only find 1 instance of this code block. Ken
  12. I have just done a test purchase up to and including the point where a standard v2.3.1 passes the user over to paypal, the options given for payment were "Have a Paypal Account -. Log in" or "Don't have a Paypal Account - pay with debit/credit card. The changes in the add-on will not change these options, without the add-on on left of the paypal checkout page you'll see your site name and transaction totals, I think net shipping and total, if you find a way of successfully introducing this add on you'll see at least three lines of the products the customer has bought on this page, but the right side of the page will not change, as it is definitely controlled by your Paypal Preferences. I know my reply is frustrating for you, but I'm not a programmer, and at least as I understand what you are saying paypal is allowing users to pay by both methods Try doing a test purchase yourself, when you get to the payment method section, does it show underneath Payment Method "PayPal (Including Debit and Credit Cards), if so I think you have your paypal set up accept both PayPal account payments and PayPal as a payment gateway Ken
  13. Hi Weston, I pretty sure that credit card issue is selected within paypal somewhere, although I just looked for it and could see it anymore. I think somewhere theres a check box with a description something like "accept payment without account" Ken
  14. Hi Sam I'm thinking of adding this contribution and just wondered if I need to do anything with the menu.js files which is in the resources folder. Its not mentioned in the installation procedure, so I presume not but have lost a bit of my confidence in upgrading the site, so just thought I'd ask first ken
  15. I'm hoping to make this into add on, I would be grateful if some of you you are better than me at coding/add-ons would have a look, test it and suggest where I could improve the installation file Below is my draft of the installation file ********************************************* All Credit goes to Chritian at and to PiLLaO/reflex-ocasion ********************************************* As always backup your database and files ********************************************* This add on is intending to provide users of v2.31 and paypal standard with a more complete description of any sales which have taken place.. At present v2.3.1 only passes to PayPal standard, the details of who has been paid, the total goods quantity, shipping and total price. I can not gaurantee that this will show show any more than 3 lines on your primary e-mail addess, as this is eactly what it shows my Just Host e-mail account, however I have opted for a second e-mail to be directed to our Microsoft Live e-mail account which shows full details of the order. So just try it and see if works for you As always backup your database and files: ************************************************************************ Instructions to manually alfter yor files ************************************************************************ There are no files to upload, just modifiications of 2 files, I suggest you make a copy of both files by adding "bak" just before the .php of each of these so that at least you original files are retained. ************************************************************************* Files to alter catalog/includes/modules/payment/paypal_standard.php catalog/checkout_confirmation.php ************************************************************************* So here are the alterations to make 1- Open catalog/includes/modules/payment/paypal_standard.php Find: ----- 'item_name' => STORE_NAME, Replace with this: ------------------ 'item_name' => $_SESSION['FixOrder'], 2- Open catalog/checkout_confirmation.php (2A) Find: ----- require('includes/application_top.php'); Add after: ---------- $_SESSION['FixOrder'] = ""; (2B) Find: (it should be in standard v2.3.1. install around line 159) ----- <?php } else { ?> <tr> <td class="main" colspan="3"><?php echo '<b>' . HEADING_PRODUCTS . '</b> <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_SHOPPING_CART) . '"><span class="orderEdit">(' . TEXT_EDIT .
