    Ebay manager

    Have just installed what looks like is going to be a very useful addition. I keep getting the following error whenever I try to add any info from ebay: EBAY_ERROR_MSG : XML Parse error. XML Error Text: "; nested exception is: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The reference to entity "response_type" must end with the ';' delimiter.". I have all of the keys generated correctly (or so it seems), any assistance would be gratefully received. Kind regards Andy
  2. I have been using this contribution to update stock levels from my suppliers for many years without problem. My suppliers place a stock level csv file on our server and the contrib reads that data in to the database. I have just taken on a new supplier who sends their stock level csv through twice a day but the file name is the timestamp for when the file was created so changes every time it is downloaded from their site. Does anyone know of a way to automatically change the filename to something constant so that the contribution can read the file without me having to modify the filename in the contrib every time I want to update the stock levels. Kind regards Andy

    SEO Friendly Urls - a new approach

    Hi I have installed the add on and got everything working, including the mod above but I now find that the breadcrumb is missing from my product page and the product details are all on the left of the screen. I am using osc 2.3.4 BS Not sure what is is that would be blocking the breadcrumb trail from showing, any tips greatly appreciated. I can post a code snippet that may help. Kind regards Andy

    [Contribution] Option Types v2

    still looking for help with getting this excellent add on to work on my 2.3.4 store. A text area product attribute will not display in my shopping cart and the attribute price is not added to the item cost. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    [Contribution] Option Types v2

    I have a problem in my 2.3.4 store when entering text in to a text field on the product info page. After many hours modifying the 2012 v2.3.1 version I have got it working as far as being able to input text in to the text box on the product_info page. When it is put in to the buyers cart the text is missing from the shopping cart page and any attribute price is not added. When viewing the page source there is a hidden field as I would expect and the text is present in that hidden field. I have uploaded the includes -> classes -> shopping_cart.php file as advised in a previous post. I can paste any copies of my priduct_info or shopping_cart files if needed but haven't done it yet to save pasting lots of unecessary code. any ideas greatly received. Andy

    Easy Populate & Products Attributes

    I was not sure if that would work or not, was a bit reluctant to just delete the columns in case it breaks everything. Will just have to try it and see what happens. Thanks for the suggestion regards Andy

    Easy Populate & Products Attributes

    Getting to grips with this great contribution. Everything is working fine but I want to be able to miss out certain attributes that do not need to be editable in EP. Basically we have attributes that are customer input fields on the item page for customers to add their own text. When I upload an EP file these attributes are deleted from the product on the website. Is it possible to stop these attributes being downloaded in the first place as we do not need to make any adjustments to them and consequently if they are not there they will not be deleted when uploaded. I have seen the following settings in the configuration table: // VJ product attributes begin // **** Product Attributes **** // change this to false, if do not want to download product attributes define ('EP_PRODUCTS_WITH_ATTRIBUTES', true); // default is true // change this to true, if you use QTYpro and want to set attributes stock with EP. define ('EP_PRODUCTS_ATTRIBUTES_STOCK', false); // default is false // change this if you want to download only selected product options (attributes). // If you have a lot of product options, and your output file exceeds 256 columns, // which is the max. limit MS Excel is able to handle, then load-up this array with // attributes to skip when generating the export. $attribute_options_select = ''; // $attribute_options_select = array('Size', 'Model'); // uncomment and fill with product options name you wish to download // comment this line, if you wish to download all product options // VJ product attributes end Guess I can deselect the attributes I do not want in the above settings but not sure what I need to put. I am using EP version 2.77a Hope someone can point me in the right direction. Regards Andy

    Header Tags SEO

    Hello all. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this issue. When I list new products I am getting the meta tags and title of another random product on the site, it is not happening with every product but with just a random few. Here is the latest: http://www.aseawards.co.uk/endurance-series-cast-presentation-p-789.html The product I listed is obviously a presentation cup trophy, but the tags in the source are for a random cricket trophy. The tags do not change every time the page is loaded, the cricket trophy tag is always there. This has happened a couple of times now. Hope someone can shed some light on it. I am using version 2.2 regards Andy
  10. has anyone managed to get this excellent contribution working with Ajax Attribute Manager? I have mangaed to get the code copied over to the attribute manager by parrot fashion but cannot get my head around the .js part. I have got the fields into attribute manager but it will not save to the db, guess this is where the java script comes in. Not being a programmer I have just about got my head around the php part but .js baffles me. If anyone can point me in the right direction on integrating code suffix into the java script of attribute manager I will upload the rest that I have done once it is working. Regards Andy

    Credit Class & Gift Vouchers (CCGV) for 2.3.1

    I recently installed this great contribution and have been informed by a couple of customers that this fault occurs when returning to the site from paypal. It is returning exactly the same fault. Is it possible to post the fix that you found worked?

    [Contribution] Option Types v2

    Hi all not sure if this has already been covered elsewhere, so my apologies if I am asking something that has already been solved. Two issues really that I need help on. 1) Is there a way of setting up a text box input with centred text? 2) I need to pass the above text box attribute to the completed order with the same formatting as the customer inputs in the text box. We sell engraved items and I want to be able to have the customer input their engraving exactly as if the text box were a trophy plate and see it come through with their order, or even on an email in the same format so I do not have to follow up with an email proof of the layout. Take a look at our site, the text box in the example needs to have its curser centred so the customer will type the layout just as it will be engraved. Hopefully you can see what I am trying to achieve. http://www.aseawards.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=334 Thanks in advance Andy ASE Awards

    [Contribution] Option Types v2

    Hi all. Does any one know if it is possible to change an attribute on all products containing that particular attribute in bulk? We want to change an option that costs £1.00 to free and I don't really relish going through every product manually to change it. Any help much appreciated. Regards Andy ASE Awards

    Sorted it. I had installed Osc_sec contribution here and it was blocking AJAX attribute manager! Changed a parameter in Osc_sec and all is back in order again! Thanks to puddlec in that thread for already having experienced this! Regards Andy

    [Contribution] Option Types v2

    Not sure to be honest. After thinking about what I have been doing recently it has been a little while since I edited/added any new products so this could have been a problem for a while and I haven't noticed it. I have compaired the installation with the original download/instructions to see if I have modified any lines of code or anything but all appears to be as it should be. Any ideas where to start multimixer would be appreciated. Regards Andy

    [Contribution] Option Types v2

    I have suddenly experienced a problem with this faultless contribution. When I am at the new product/edit screen in admin, the option type is showing but with no options populated, I know the options are there as they are still showing up in the attributes screen in admin. I cannot add more options to the item as the option types do not do anything. I have receibly been experiencing problems with paypal ipn contribution and one page checkout contribution not being compatible but surely these should not affect the option types contribution. Not very conversant with php but I can understand a little with guidance so any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance Andy

    [Contribution] Option Types v2

    We have different sized products on our ranges that can have vast weight differences. I installed this contribution and it allows you to put in a seperate weight relative to the base weight for each product attribute. In our case; Product 1 has four different options with 4 different shipping weights; options 1 - 4 can have 4 different option weights entered which are passed to the shipping module. You can even add a negative weight for products that have a download option as well as a physical option such as a cd. Shipping is therefore not charged on the download but is charged for the cd. I have not worked out how to integrate it into the option types contribution as my script writing is not good so I just input the weights in bulk on the product attributes screen in Admin. Hope this helps Andy ASE Awards

    [Contribution] Option Types v2

    Thanks for that information. The database field was set to 100 characters. When making a test purchse all the data was on the order but when it comes through to the admin it is chopped off after 32 characters. After a bit more digging around I found out what was causing the problem. In the 'orders_products_attributes' table, the 'products_options_values' field had a varchar() length of 32. I reset it to 100 and all the data comes through now. If anyone else has had this error then I hope this helps. Regards Andy ASE Awards

    [Contribution] Option Types v2

    I have an option value for a customer input text area for customers to leave a message with the product to be personalised. The option has a maximum of 100 characters set in the option value. When a customer fills in the option, it is cut off after 32 characters and I do not receive the rest of the message. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Manual Order Maker

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    not sure if I am posting this in the correct thread. I have order editor 1.5.8a installed along with manual order maker. When I create a new order from an existing customer, the fields are populated in the new order ok but when I click save and I am taken to the edit_order screen all the fields are blank. I know the order is there as it shows up in my customers order history but again with all the fields blank. Is this a fault if the order editor or manual order maker? Any help would be appreciated Andy
