  6. does anyone know how to keep some sort of record of the customers order and receive e-mail of the order when they choose proceed to checkout - after they pay via HSBC bank module? Without having to keep checking the sql database? my customer just purchased the way above and if it wasn't for her phoning us, we would never had known she had purchased as her order and her details were erased from admin the minute she completed checkout. Also i cannot have anything that lets me know of an order when someone leaves the checkout successfully because they still may not complete the HSBC payment part. thank you

    UK-Based: Default osCommerce Installation.

    Hi can anyone advise as to why the counties drop down does not appear on the create account page and just allows the customer to manually enter their county - which sometimes they don't and then it defaults to 'Aberdeenshire'? However it does appear as a dropdown when they go into view/change their account details. Also how would i update the counties as i have London missing? Thank you Steve My Webpage

    NewsDesk v1.48 Support

    Hi All I have just installed this contribution and although it looks very good if you are prepared to sit and make all your own news items/rss items, but i was looking for something that would install to oscommerce that would accept external rss feeds and be displayed on my site with auto updating as the authors updated their feeds. I don't think this contribution will cope or allow that will it? I know it has an external link option but that's all it is, and there isn't even a paste option in the wysiwyg, so you cannot use any stored files on your pc to paste in. Can anyone tell me where i can find a contribution to then input rss feeds addresses into that will auto show and update in my site. Thank you Steve My Webpage
  9. Does anyone know how to set up shipping fees that show automatically if someone signs up from US? These would replace the fees that are current in shopping cart for UK. Zones does not do the job because it just places another option in shopping cart for zones based rates, whereas it is not a choice, it should be a default set of shipping charges that load depending on the country chosen at sign up stage. Thank you Steve My Webpage

    Custom Computer Creator

    Hi can anyone advise on the custom creator contribution:(http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...,all/search,ccc) not this one:(http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...,all/search,ccc) I changed the category names and re-loaded sql ? great, but prices never updated etc, so I assume I must keep the descriptive and short names how the author had them and just change the main category names, so that it all works? Would this cause a problem elsewhere, by keeping short and descriptive names from authors original sql? Also what part of code, in what file do I change to ensure that the drop down boxes ALWAYS defaults to ?Please Select? as this throws off to a particular product at times? Many thanks Steve http://www.pcplanetsales.co.uk/pcplanet Steve

    Am i right in thinking that the only way to alter the build is via sql file so that changes everything incl any shipping slips and e-mails to customer?

    Custom Computer Creator

    Thank you for your reply, but i do not have any of those options in admin!! All we have is'Custom Computer' in admin which lists the category headers like, motherboard, processor, cdrom, memory etc etc. But no options within these except a category number that we can change to suit an existing store category, (for which we have to go to the category page in our store, to see what the category number is in the url). Then, apparently, all the products in that category will become the drop down list - no further control. To be honest this was done by VN2 designs, and it seems that half has been missed? Do you have a different version? Steve

    Links Manager v1.01, please help???

    Hi Can anyone help. We had an error in sql regarding Links Manager, so decided to re-install sql via links_setup.php again, but it keeps saying that it is already installed, yet we removed all elements from sql database first?????????? Now we cannot seem to get links_setup to run again without it saying 'already installed', regardless of how many times we delete tables from database?? Does anyone have the latest raw sql data that we can input manually? Thank you Steve
  15. Hi Does anyone have an updated contribution so that phpbb forum can be installed successfully to a (modded) osc store. Have checked existing contributions and they are either old and outdated with dead links or in chinese script. I know phpbb can be downloaded and installed independantly, but we wish to integrate it as one with osc so flows professionally as one site and only one login with our existing store's header, footer and layout & design. Thank you Julie
