  1. @14steve14 I'll have to try this myself, as last time I couldn't get it to work. The modules (price, reviews gtin, etc) dropped below the image. I'll try again.

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    Hello @Jack_mcs @puggybelle I had the same problem and solved it by changing this line in googlefeeder.php include_once 'includes/application_top.php'; to : include_once './includes/application_top.php'; obviously do the same change in bingfeeder.php This just forces the code to use the correct directory after the chdir('../'); Why, who knows??? This seems to apply to XAMPP servers (which is my test environment), my shop server doesn't need this change. Regards Mike

    View Counter

    I'm installing this addon, view counter v1.7, to a CE frozen test installation. I noticed that the filename.php does not exist in the CE version, so I've added the following code in application_top.php require('includes/view_counter_defines.php'); But I still get the following error in reports Warning: Illegal string offset 'Country Code' in ..........admin\includes\modules\view_counter\view_counter_report_referers.php on line 56 similar errors occur in the monitor when flags are switched on. Warning: Illegal string offset 'Country Code' in ...........admin\view_counter.php on line 682 Is this addon ok for CE frozen running php 7.0? thanks in advance Mike

    bot trying to hack band end

    always best to have a static IP. Only a small extra in cost. If not you will have to edit your .htaccess file every time the IP changes. Question, are you running on a self hosted machine? If yes, then I hope not a PC!! I would recommend View counter as suggested by @Jack_mcs

    bot trying to hack band end

    Is a .htaccess file, in your admin directory, setup with : AuthType Basic AuthName "Password Protected Area" AuthUserFile /***/***/***/htpasswd Require valid-user Order Deny,Allow Deny from all Allow from 'Your IP address' and has your admin directory been renamed to something random? Mike

    CE Frozen and SMTP mail

    @crimble crumble would it be possible for you to make the function available, as with my limited programming I'm having difficultly understanding the PHPmailer class and how to add it for smtp emails. Thanks Mike

    Hooks and nested modules in CE

    @kymation@burt Thank you for your help. I just couldn't get my head round the problem even after you told me the solution. Leaving the screen and walking away for the night and it seems so obvious now. Thanks again! Mike

    Hooks and nested modules in CE

    Hi Jim @kymation I still can't figure this out. (I'm using the CE frozen version) I'm limited with my code experience. I can create a hook (e.g. 'hello world' ) and insert it on the product_info.php page, but I can't add it the product_listing.php page. I register the hook in index.php using $OSCOM_Hooks->register('product'); and call the hook in product_listing.php page using $prod_list_contents .= $OSCOM_Hooks->call('product', 'hello_world'); the fatal error I get is: Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function call() on null in D:\xampp70\htdocs\shopce\includes\modules\product_listing.php:116 Stack trace: #0 D:\xampp70\htdocs\shopce\includes\modules\content\index_products\cm_ip_product_listing.php(148): include() #1 D:\xampp70\htdocs\shopce\includes\classes\osc_template.php(146): cm_ip_product_listing->execute() #2 D:\xampp70\htdocs\shopce\index.php(60): oscTemplate->getContent('index_products') #3 {main} thrown in D:\xampp70\htdocs\shopce\includes\modules\product_listing.php on line 116 So where next. I assume because the index page has nested modules this error occurs, but I don't understand how the nested modules work. The product_info.php page is a straight forward single page and registering and calling the hook in the same file I understand. So can anyone advise please. Thanks Mike
  13. Hi, Quick question, has anyone defined a hook for use in a nested module on the index page. i.e. cm_ip_product_listing.php? I can't seem to figure this out, as I get the following error: Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function register() on null in D:\xampp70\htdocs\.....\includes\modules\product_listing.php: Adding a hook to product_info.php works ok, which doesn't have nested modules. any help please. Thanks Mike

    importing Database to new install

    I imported the whole DB was I wouldn't loose any data, even the data and extra table columns used for the addons. So when I install those addons the data already exists. But importing table by table is another option. Good Luck Mike
