    Oscommerce 3 and Wisiwig

    Ah, yes, I understand now... nothing to see here folks, move along :P

    Oscommerce 3 and Wisiwig

    Well, I think wordpress uses tineMCE and that inserts images just dandy :)

    Information Box Bloat

    Hehe, no problem :) I do believe it's a very concience decision to make a CSS tableless theme, but I also think that there's a theme that uses tables, so I think there's something in it for everyone. Also, I think a good deal of the internet cannot support visually challenged users, due to several reasons, being it lack of knowlegde og simply that the sites do not consider such people part of their userbase. But no matter if it's a list or break or a span, style should be defined in a class and not hardcoded.

    Information Box Bloat

    Well, I'm not gonna go into whether CSS should be important or not, but you're right that a class should be defined instead of the style being placed in the code, that's very unflexible. As for having a list, try putting "display:block;" on the links in the box, and you'll see why simply "<br>" won't cut it.

    First off, codewise is much easier on the eyses the way it is now, secondly, having it in a list makes life fun giving more options CSS wise. My question to you is: Why is this a problem?

    how to "hand install" MS3 Alpha 3

    In any case, an official dump or you're own is EXACTLY only divided by lazy reluctance. In any case it would just be a matter of looking what data is created by the install script and looking into what changes you have to make for each site, if any. My guess is that some changes are merely chioces, so if you choose som default ones to begin with like admin account etc. that should do it for you. No matter what, it's either very simple to do yourself or not possible, but as Harald did write they would provide a dump, then I can't really see what should keep you back from doing the same. Anyone who has this concern should probably take a look at what's being done instead of waiting for a dump from Harald.

    how to "hand install" MS3 Alpha 3

    Well, having to do that ONCE is not exactly hard work...
  8. Yes, I have done that for ALL my different shop versions, it's IMHO the best way of doing it. I usually have four or five statuses defined: recieved, pending, processing, shipped are the essential ones.

    how to "hand install" MS3 Alpha 3

    Well, then making a dump of a clean db your selves after an install would suffice, no?

    ERP Connection

    Doesn't it technically give you individual product numbers? I mean PRODUCT{ATTRIBUTE}? The big thing is to have quantity for each attribute. I've made this on one shop I did, there was a contrib for it that didn't take too long to put in. However, It would be cool if this was a standard option for osC_3, but exactly how it should be implemented is beyond me :)

    Currency Conversion Errors

    The cool thing would be to have this fixed in the new release, so everyone and their grandma that makes a new contrib for the new release would have it per standard

    Currency Conversion Errors

    Yeah, I have this problem too, both on ms3 AND in ms2. I never got around to solving it as the shop we used multiple currencies on switched to strictly Euro, but it a VERY big error, especially for u who import osC orders into other systems.
  13. RL2000

    Some considerations

    Also, ppl writing in the dev forum should really try the cvs version before coming with suggestions for the future, I mean, half of what I read is something that is fixed with the next release. Granted, there's no date for that, but hey, life isn't fair. And for all the ppl having trouble with certain aspects of the code: Contribute you own!

    Well, after waiting around for an answer instead of just looking, I've SVN'ed the it_IT folder with the us translations in them and will start making a da_DA folder. Anyway, I was wondering if there's any original pictures for buttons? It seems a waste to edit them if there's a psd file or something where one can just change the text on the buttons.
  15. I'm getting internal server error from the dev server? Also, I wanted to contribute to the translations(and anything else I can do) and Harald said to talk to him on IRC, but he hasn't been online since. So my question is, what's the right way to contribute? I really want to help out, I've benefitted so much from this project and as I see the need for developers is very high, I thought I'd pitch in :) Am I the only one with willing hands and nowhere to put them?

    I need a Shipping System - MyUPS

    If you want to do it file based, I think there's a contrib that has that option, so search the contrib section.
  17. Hi Well, this something used everywhere, at least here in Denmark. Some credit card vendors/payment systems won't allow you to charge fee's but it's very common here to charge for "payment by invoice", bank transfers and danish credit cards and such. There should be a percentage fee and a fixed fee. Now, there's a contrib for ms2 that adds this in order total and then hacks it's way back into the payment page to display the charge, but I feel it would be smarter to have this right in the module, just like with shipping. I'm not a guru, I mean, I can do PHP, but OOP is something I've only used in the limited way it's used in ms2, but I'm willing to do the work. I haven't looked to much at the new alpha's payment methods, as I?m kinda waiating for the next alpha, as I gather many things have changed. But my idea is simply like this: 1) Add to the class to charge a fee, both percentage and fixed. 2) add a ot module to display it.

    Payment surcharges

    Well, yes, a good deal of credit cards does not allow for this, but some do(and UK based companies can in some cases charge for paypal). I've used the ot module in the past, but then you have it hack back into the payment selection so ppl can see what they're being charged. Anyway, if you can't do it i North America, you could simply input 0, just as with shipping.
  19. I was thinking it could be clever to add the option of input fields to the shipping modules, kind of like you can with payment modules. I needed this a while ago for a site I was making where the customer was able to insert their own UPS shipping number so it was shipped on their own account. This turned out to be quite a hackjob as I was in ahurry, but it would be smart to have the option as part of the shipping class thingie. Any takers?

    Hi, I second that question? I can translate into danish, but I don't want to do it twice :) I mean, I know the dev server is back up, but are the lang files as they should be(as far as we know now)?

    osCommerce Development Server

    Very very VERY good news! Looks cool, looking forward to see the project benefiting from this!

    I need a Shipping System - MyUPS

    Well, with UPS, you can get their software Worldship, it has the ability to get the order directly from the osC database, very funky, there's a couple of posts on the forums, try searching around. As for automated tracking numbers, I use UPS ref number field to put in my customers order number, that way I made a script that could query UPS for packages with that order number and me as shipper. Also, WOrldship can be set up to send them a mail with details(UPS Quantum Notify).

    Tshirt oscommerce store

    Yeah, as far as I can see it's a product attribute, try searching the contribution section for something similar. Otherwise, try mailing the company and get a hold of the webmaster.

    UPS XML suddenly doesn't work anymore

    I don't think UPS has changed anything, mine still works fine on multiple sites. It doesn't seem to be a problem with passkey and such, more a file inclution problem. could you post the entire error message?

    Default Shipping Selection = CHECKED

    depending on how much of a hack you want to do, you could just edit the function "cheapest" in the shipping class, as that's the one checkout_shipping uses. includes/classes/shipping.php
