  1. Unwanted Bots swamping site again, I think we should start a petition asking for bots to banned unless we expressly allow them to pry into our sites

      Done all that, just brasses me off that we should have to do it, these bots use the host resources, if I found the authors of the bots and started their cars and left them running until all the fuel was gone, the would be royally pissed off, thats just how I feel about them stealing resources I pay for !!

      Legally, how could you tell that a visitor is an (unwanted) bot rather than a real customer? Don't forget that without bots, your site wouldn't appear on any search engine results.

    [Addon} Modular Front Page

    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

    [Addon} Modular Front Page

    @@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

    PayPal Payment Standard setup in osc 2.3.1

    @@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

    PayPal Payment Standard setup in osc 2.3.1

    @@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

    Better Description for Paypal Standard in v2.3.1

    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

    Better Description for Paypal Standard in v2.3.1

    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
