  1. @burt In your latest 28 days modules, #1 (Better Stock Messages), you instruct us to add this to shopping_cart.php /shopping_cart.php Find (approx https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/blob/master/shopping_cart.php#L155-L162 ) : <?php } } ?> </div> </form> Add AFTER: <div class="clearfix"></div> <?php echo $oscTemplate->getContent('shopping_cart'); ?> In the Ship in Cart reloaded v3.7 add-on, there is this instruction: (2) OPTIONAL if you have an older, unmodularized shopping cart and wouldn't like to update to the Modular Shopping Cart: /catalog/shopping_cart.php FIND: </form> <?php } else { ?> Replace with: </form> <div class="row"> <?php echo $oscTemplate->getContent('shopping_cart'); ?> </div> <?php } else { ?> This change is not in your version of Edge as of date 2/15/18. I acknowledge that this is just one step toward modularizing the Shopping Cart (I'd prefer to see more modularization), what would it hurt to add this to Edge now? Malcolm
  2. How Do I Edit "Contact Information" Page?

    @gilthunder It looks like you are building a new store. If so, I strongly recommend that you start over (I know, I know), and use the community supported Edge version of osCommerce (link in my signature below). The 'official' version is several years old. On the other hand, Edge is up-to-date, is responsive (it will adjust the layout to match the screen size of your customers. Very important with so many people using mobile devices!), much more modular (you can turn on or off feature, or even add new features, without editing the core code), and is PHP 7 ready. I'd hate to see you put in all of this work, and have your store crash soon when your host upgrades their version of PHP, as well as not supporting all of your mobile device customers. Malcolm
  3. New to OSCommerce

    @imtylerbanks Do you want to hire someone to assist you with this project? If so, you can post a RFQ in the commercial support area in this forum: https://forums.oscommerce.com/forum/79-commercial-support-inquiries/ If you are trying to do this yourself, you're going to have to be very clear in what assistance you ask for. Also, as @MrPhil mentioned, be sure to use the community supported Edge version of osCommerce, *not* the "official" distribution (which is several years old, and is not responsive (ie: the display adjusts to the size of the viewers screen (phone, tablet, desktop, etc))). The link to Edge is in my signature below. Malcolm
  4. *** update *** @burt has added two additional bonus GDPR modules to his 28-days bundle (as well as some other additional bonuses), making this bundle even more valuable! It's not too late to: 1) get these GDPR modules for your store, and 2) help support and move osCommerce to the next level! Malcolm
  5. It all depends on your business ... * If you sell one-of-a-kind, hand-made items (jewelry, paintings, sculpture, quilts, etc), then it is beneficial to show what you have made / sold in the past, even if that item is no longer available. Not only does it showcase what you have/can do, it may generate interest for customers to commission you to make something new. * If you sell items like used books, antiques, used clothing, etc., then it may, or may not, be beneficial to show what you had in the past. It may generate traffic from search results, but its hard to say if that will generate any additional business. * If you sell a commodity item, and that item has been discontinued, but a replacement (or similar) item is available, then keeping the old item can be very useful. Searches can bring customers to your store, where you can then offer the newer products. That all said, I do not think an automatic redirect is the best answer. If something is no longer available, just say so. If an alternative is available, offer it as a suggestion. (just my 2 cents)
  6. @azpro Have you made available your modularized product_info.php code? I'd love to see how you do this Malcolm

    @Jack_mcs Does this add-on require View Counter? Malcolm Wow, this is my 1000th post
  8. Fatal error after server crash

    @auster The best *quick* fix (assuming you have a full backup of your shop *and* the database) would be to move to a new host. Your only delay would be how long it would take for DNS to fully propagate. If you do not have a full backup of your store *and* of your database, DO IT NOW! If you don't know how, just ask. After that, you should really consider upgrading your shop to the latest Edge version of osCommerce (link in my signature below). It's not a simple in-place upgrade ... you would basically build a new store (usually in a temporary directory) and import your old data (customers, orders, etc) into the new store. If any of this is beyond your ability, there are a number of developers that can quote you for something like this. Just post a request for quotation in the Commercial Support area of this forum: https://forums.oscommerce.com/forum/79-commercial-support-inquiries/ Malcolm
  9. Fatal error after server crash

    @auster What version of osCommerce is your store running? Malcolm PS: what airplane is that in your avatar?

  11. Cart Market Share

    Should this be moved into its own thread?
  12. @burt If your suggestion works (and I see no reason it shouldn't), maybe this should be added to the core? Malcolm
  13. @momoxygene18 osC Edge is the most up to date version of osCommerce, and has many refinements over the now obsolete osC 2.3.4 version (which is several years old). It looks like you are trying to incorporate an add-on designed for Edge into an old 2.3.4 store. As I see it, you have three choices ... 1) Consider upgrading your store to osC Edge. This will mean building a new store (there is no in-place upgrade), and bringing all of your customer and product history over into your new store (best option, but much more time and effort), or 2) Find a Recaptcha add-on that is designed to work with osC 2.3.4 (second best option), or 2) Try to bring the portions of your 2.3.4.store up to the current Edge code base (resulting in a Frankenstore that no one will be able to support) (worst option). HTH Malcolm
  14. @MrPhil Are you forgetting the templates that @burt offers commercially? Malcolm
  15. If ... you are a store owner, anywhere in the world, and are running the community version of osC (Gold or Edge) ... I strongly urge you to sign up for the 28-days code bundle that @burt has here: The GDPR modules alone (days 16, 18, and 24) are worth the price of admission! (plus, you'd be helping with the development of the software that you are using to run your businesses) Malcolm
