    @JcMagpie The OP hasn't been here in almost a month. Thanks, though.

    Site been working for a year, now broken!

    @Enzo79 What version of PHP was your host using before the upgrade? Can you ask them to roll PHP back to a prior version? Do you have a full backup of your site (both files AND database) from before you made your 'security' changes? M

    New Products Listing

    @FXBO To be honest, I did not know the answer to this. So, I started exploring ... I find it useful to use your browser's 'View Source Page' (or whatever the nomenclature is for your browser) of the actual store. Once I find the bit of code that defines an action, I then use a tool such as Windows Grep to search through all the php files, and find the specific file that has that bit of code. HTH M

    New Products Listing

    @FXBO There are 2 "New Products" ... One for Index, and one for Index_nested. Which did you change? M

    @FXBO Admin -> Modules -> Content -> New Products -> <edit> -> Maximum Display HTH M
  6. @tothcom As I mentioned, the only person that can make these changes has been absent. So we, as the community, are doing what we can, with what is available to us. osCommerce is an Open Source project. There have been a number of people/teams who have taken the osC source code and 'spun off' their own shopping carts. You may too, if you choose. However, you can not call yours "osCommerce". M
  7. @makeit4me As @MrPhil said, the 'official' v2.3.4 (and v2.3.4.1 hot-patch) is very much out of date. The osCommerce project was lead by one person that has been absent for quite some time. In his absence, the "community" has continued with the development of osC. Unfortunately, that one missing person is the only one that can make this continued development an 'official' release. The 'Community Edition' (also called osC-CE (for Community Edition), osC-BS (for Bootstrap, the platform it is based on), osC-Edge, osC-Final, and/or osC-Frozen. These are all different names for the same thing) is a big improvement over the last 'official' v2.3.4 release in a number of ways: 1) It is responsive. This means that it will adjust the screen layout depending on the size of the screen of your customer's device. This is very important in this day of mobile devices. The 'official' version is not responsive. 2) It will work with the newer version of PHP, the scripting language used in osC. As more and more hosts upgrade their servers to PHP 7.x, older versions of osC (including the 'official' version) will crash. 3) It is much more modular. This means that you can turn features on or off, change the layout, or even add new features, all without touching the core code. You can find a link to the latest version of the Community Edition in my signature below. Malcolm

    Fatal error, webhost is stumped

    @brian_cee Do you have a full backup of your site (both files AND database) before the crash? Malcolm

    Nothing happens after install

    @MrPhil Yes, the store's root (ie: /catalog). I did say " the root directory of the shop ". M

    @Subbie If I understand you correctly, you are using the 'official' v2.3.4.1 version of osCommerce, correct? As @raiwa mentioned earlier, the 'official' version is very much out of date! The osCommerce project was lead by one person that has been absent for quite some time. In his absence, the "community" has continued with the development of osC. Unfortunately, that one missing person is the only one that can make this continued development an 'official' release. The 'Community Edition' (also called osC-CE (for Community Edition), osC-BS (for Bootstrap, the platform it is based on), osC-Edge, osC-Final, and/or osC-Frozen.

This means that you can turn features on or off, or even add new features, all without touching the core code. You can find a link to the latest version of the Community Edition in my signature below. Now, having said all of that, the Community Edition has a file in the root directory of the shop called user.css. This is the last CSS file called, and thus will override all other CSS definitions. Out of the box, this file is empty. This is where you, the shop owner, put all of your CSS definitions. This way, you do not have to edit any of the stock CSS files. The user.css file does not exist in the 'official' version of osC. HTH Malcolm

    Add Zones to Shipping Zone Rates

    @jimormsbee How many shipping zones do you want? (in particular, post #4) Also this one ... Basically, do a search here in the Forum for 'Shipping Zones'. M

    New install messing about.

    @Mtareq http://www.oscommerce-templates.co.uk/ These are all from the developer who lead the Community Edition project. Not free, though . And, as @MrPhil mentioned below, the Community Edition IS responsive, out of the box. No template needed! But, if you want to buy a template instead of doing the styling yourself, check out the above site. M
