  1. Not really a solution geared for oscommerce users. We have talked about this internally within our company for months now to come up with the best possible strategy to handle multiple stores and here is what we finally decided... We are either building or converting stores from other platforms to our extremely modified oscommerce cart. What this means is that from a business perspective we are working our a*ses off to build and nurture the assets. If and when we were to decide to let go of one of the stores or some of the stores we want it to be extremely easy and simple. With that being said each of our oscommerce stores are independent and the way we will tie them all together is building a "master" admin system which will allow us to manage each store's database. Manage products, orders, customers etc. Again this was just in the discussion phase, so not really sure how practical this approach will be or if there will be any complications.
  2. Recently, while working on cutting down mysql queries, I came across 2 functions which were on php.net *I am not the author of this code* I simply changed a few things around. Installation: open up /includes/functions/html_output.php towards the end insert these 2 functions: //// // Two very nice functions for searching array by either a key or by a value function tep_search_array_by_key($array, $key, $value) { $results = array(); if (is_array($array)) { if ($array[$key] == $value) { $results[] = $array; } foreach ($array as $subarray) { $results = array_merge($results, tep_search_array_by_key($subarray, $key, $value)); } } return $results; } function tep_search_array_by_value($array, $value) { $results = array(); if (is_array($array)) { $found = array_search($value,$array); if ($found) { $results[] = $found; } foreach ($array as $subarray) { $results = array_merge($results, tep_search_array_by_value($subarray, $value)); } } return $results; } These functions are meant to be used by those who understand it's arrays. Basically the idea is that in shot you can store data from mysql queries in an array and the loop them and do a search either by key or value. I am sure there are numerous places it can be used in the admin end as well but I haven't gotten around to that yet.
  3. Hi, so looks like you are an oscommerce expert and I have so many questions. How do I use the forum to ask them?


  4. Hey Steve, Should we go ahead and add the new Bing/Yahoo bot called "bingbot"

    Exploded view of a product

    Yes its possible. You have to use Master Products contribution. As for linking the images so they are clickable for each part, that's something I believe has to be manually done.

    Static pages manager / v2.3

    Look up the contribution called Information Pages
  7. Robert, I understand that $_GET can be used in forms as well but login.php create_account.php and checkout related files all use the post method. Am I correct? Also, can you give some specifics as to why you feel that it is not appropriate to use Security Pro code for $_POST ? I have done a lot of testing to ensure that all the bad data is cleansed and that we do not loose any good data from the forms by using the method mentioned above. Your input is greatly appreciated. Thanks
  8. Dan, That's because Security Pro is NOT supposed to cleanse anything which is form related ($_POST). It is only meant for $_GET You will need to install the following to get the forms to work: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?showtopic=313323&view=findpost&p=1477869
  9. Sorry can't help you further in terms of operations as I have not tested either of the contributions.

    Best seo addons?

    IMO Isabella, I much rather prefer to use Robert's USU5 Pro. I have tested it with over 75k products and it works flawlessly. Making modifications is a piece of cake. And it is very very stable. I haven't come across any other contribution which has interfered with USU5 Pro.
  11. In your database, you are missing the column "shipping_methods" in table "products" Please re-read the instruction for both the contributions to see how to add the column.

    Robert, We launched the first version of our new store with your new USU5 Pro. The store has a fairly large amount of products in a very complex breakdown of categories. We easily modified quite a few thing in your USU5 Pro and so far it has been very stable. Thanks for your great efforts and contribution!! :thumbsup:

    IMO, you are better off creating a different 404. What I have done is basically created a replicate of shipping.php into 404.php so that I can possibly do something in the future, such as catch the errors and show related products etc.

    Shaun, You don't have to install any other contribution. Simply add the following to your .htaccess in your main folder generally /home/xxx/public_html/ ErrorDocument 404 /404.php Make sure that you have a 404.php file
