  1. @sunshynecraftsbeads A couple of things ... 1) Which version of osCommerce are you running? All recent versions of the Community Edition (up through Frozen) are running Bootstrap v3. Only the newest experimental 'Edge' version(s) are running Bootstrap v4. 2) I tried to look up the Spacelab theme you say you are/were using. Is it the one offered by Bootswatch? If so, did you make sure that you downloaded the correct version for the version of Bootstrap you are running on your shop? According to their site, their theme is tuned for Bootstrap v4, with versions available for Bootstrap v2 and v3. 3) As others have pointed out, if you want to be able to use your user.css file to make adjustments to your site, it needs to be the LAST .css file called. So, if the instruction to install the Spacelab theme said to do this: <link href="ext/bootstrap/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet"> <!-- font awesome --> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.1.0/css/all.css" integrity="sha384-lKuwvrZot6UHsBSfcMvOkWwlCMgc0TaWr+30HWe3a4ltaBwTZhyTEggF5tJv8tbt" crossorigin="anonymous"> <link href="custom.css" rel="stylesheet"> <link href="user.css" rel="stylesheet"> <script src="ext/jquery/jquery-3.3.1.min.js"></script> <link href="ext/bootstrap/spacelab/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet"> you will have the problem that others here have described. The user.css file MUST be called last. To resolve that, you need to move calling the Spacelab .css file to BEFORE your user.css file: <link href="ext/bootstrap/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet"> <!-- font awesome --> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.1.0/css/all.css" integrity="sha384-lKuwvrZot6UHsBSfcMvOkWwlCMgc0TaWr+30HWe3a4ltaBwTZhyTEggF5tJv8tbt" crossorigin="anonymous"> <link href="custom.css" rel="stylesheet"> <link href="ext/bootstrap/spacelab/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet"> <link href="user.css" rel="stylesheet"> <script src="ext/jquery/jquery-3.3.1.min.js"></script> Or, as you have already done, you can drop the Spacelab theme all together.

    PayPal Express authorisation loop.

    @churchillj54 If you site used to work fine with the Paypal module, and now it doesn't, that usually means that something somewhere has changed. Ask your host if they updated anything, especially if they updated the version of PHP the server is running. Many hosts will deny that they changed anything, but if pressed, will finally (and/or reluctantly) admit it when they have indeed made a change. M

    CSS Button Control file

    @ken0306 Since you are running such an old version of osC, have you adapted it to use the BootStrap framework? Both @Hotclutch and @JcMagpie have expressed a concern that the 'btn' and 'btn-primary' classes are just used with Bootstrap. That said, in your first post here, you state that when you use type = "image", the item is added to your cart. But, when you use type = "submit', it isn't. If "image" works, why not use it? M

  5. @TheDukeOfHurl 1) Which version of osCommerce are you using? 2) Are you using a template on your site? If so, which one? And, was it developed for your version of osCommerce? M

    Cart not charging tax. How to fix?

    Cart not charging tax. How to fix?

    @dreaminggates 1) admin -> Locations / Taxes -> Tax Classes Make sure you have a Tax Class called "Taxable Goods". All of you products that are taxable in your state must have a Tax Class of "Taxable Goods." Confirm under Admin -> Catalog -> Categories / Products -> (all of your taxable products) 2) Admin -> Locations / Taxes -> Tax Rates Make sure you have an entry here: a) Priority -> 1 b) Tax Class -> Taxable Goods c) Zone -> in your case, 'Virginia' d) Tax Rate -> in your case, 4.5% 3) Admin -> Locations / Taxes -> Tax Zones Make sure you have an entry here -> in your case, 'Virginia' Let us know if you need more assistance.

    Navbar Layout

    @Dnj1964 The Logo and Search modules are part of the Header, not the NavBar. That said, you should be able to copy, edit, and rename the Logo and Search modules from the Header section into the NavBar section. Each module will have three files, the module, the template, and the language file. Does that make sense? M
  10. @René H4 If you search through the forum, you will find a lot of threads pertaining to PHP v7.2 support. PHP v7.2 is *much* more strict that prior versions, and many people are seeing warnings flag up all over the place. Do note that these are warnings, and not errors. AFAIK, 'Frozen' is not 100% compatible with PHP v7.2, and many (if not most) of the add-ons out there are also not 100% compatible. 'Edge' *may* be, but since 'Edge' is constantly changing, it may not be the best choice for a live shop. If you wish to deploy 'Frozen', I would suggest that you either roll back to PHP v7.1, or prepare to address any warnings or errors that arise using PHP v7.2. If the latter, you could also contribute back to the community with a list of the errors you find, and your solutions to them. HTH M

    @ce7 Also, read this thread: There is also information in this thread ... I needed to fix an 'equal-height' issue, and two add-ons were suggested. One worked for me. HTH M

    @ce7 This is all I know .... You may need to contact @burt directly for more info. M
  13. @fantomen You don't want to change the database fields, you want to change the value of the data you are inserting into the fields. I think what @MrPhil was suggesting is this: INSERT INTO zones (zone_id, zone_country_id, zone_code, zone_name) VALUES ('null',203,'AB','Stockholm') 1) Back up, back up, back up! 2) I do not know if the 'null' data needs to be surrounded by single quotes or not. Probably not. You may have to try either or both. 3) You will have to make this change to all of the records you are inserting into the database. HTH M

    New Install PHP 7.2 sizeof()

    @rebelsheep Two points ... 1) The 'official' v2.3.4.1 version of osCommerce 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, and/or osC-Frozen.) is a big improvement over the last 'official' v2.3.4 release in a number of ways: A ) 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. B ) 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. C ) 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. As I said, the community is still working on osC. Every so often, a version is released as a 'fixed' release. 'Frozen' was the last 'fixed' release, while 'Edge' is still ongoing. Since the developers are constantly testing new things in 'Edge', 'Frozen' is the better choice for a live store. As will all software, there will be bugs in any release, and some have been identified in 'Frozen'. There is an entire thread identifying these, as well as their fixes. Unfortunately, there are no version numbers associated with any of these releases, and they will all say that they are osC v2.3.4.1. The only way to know which release you have is the date on the full package. You can find a link to the latest 'Frozen' version of the Community Edition in my signature below. 2) osCommerce, in any of its versions, is not ready for PHP 7.2 (nor are many of the add-ons). PHP v7.2 is much more strict than earlier versions, and much of the osCommerce code (and add-ons) will need updating. So, you have two choices here: A ) Roll back to a supported version of PHP. If you are using the 'official' version of osC, that means v5.6. If you are using a current version of the 'Community Edition,' you can run PHP v7.0 (and possibly v7.1). Or, ... B ) Be ready to have to do a lot of code fixing. While you can get *some* support on this forum (be sure to search for PHP 7.2 posts), a lot of this you'll have to do on your own. HTH Malcolm

    @Hotclutch IIRC, @burt removed the equal height module in Frozen, having replaced it with a CSS solution. M

    @JcMagpie I just tested in on my test install of Frozen, and it works. Otherwise, I would not have posted it here. YMMV

    (At the risk of confusing things even more so ...) There is no single version called 'Edge'! Burt has been working on the Community Edition since 2014. EVERY release or update since then is 'Edge', *except* for two 'fixed' releases: 'Gold' and 'Frozen'. So, unless you know you are using either 'Gold' or 'Frozen', the ONLY way to know what 'release' you have is to look at the release date of the complete package. M

    That will give you the user name and password for the DATABASE, not how to log into the Admin portion of his site. If the developer used an .htaccess file to password protect the Admin directory (outside of the method built into Admin in osC), you can change the admin password through osC (or directly in the administrators table), but still not have access to the directory. In this case, you will have to go through your host's cPanel, and delete or rename the .htaccess file in the Admin directory. M

    @kamalaikido As @Jack_mcs asked, it is very important to know which version of osCommerce you have. That said, a few more questions ... 1) Do you have a full backup of your shop, including all of the files *AND* the database? 2) Are you comfortable using cPanel, and database tools like phpMyAdmin? Oh, and I assume that this is an active site, right? How long has it been life? Are you actually generating income with it, or is it more as a hobby site? M

    @kamalaikido Do you have access to your host's server? Can you log into their tools, such as cPanel? M

    Can anyone help this situation

    @Lord_Azure This is a long shot, but .... Do your machine(s) connected via ethernet use a different DNS and DHCP server than the ones connected via WiFi? I ask only because I had a situation where some computers here could access the internet, and some couldn't. It turned out that the machines that had a hard coded IP and DNS addresses could access the internet, and the ones that used DHCP couldn't, because my router that was handing out IP and DNS addresses had a hickup. Fixing the router fixed my problem. HTH M
