  1. @kgtee thanks for the information above. I'm wondering if you have used Jssor Slider by @Jack_mcs in Phoenix or if it's one you like from a previous version? Thanks
  2. @JcMagpie thanks for the help. makes much more sense now. somehow when i extracted the files I didn't get the includes files and only got the admin files. I was looking for additional and didn't see anymore. I just extracted again and they were there. thanks for the help and sorry for the question.
  3. @JcMagpie thanks for the information on the banner add-ons above. Looks like you are the creator of most of those. I hope you don't mind me asking you a question about install on JcM Header Carousel Banner V1.0 Phoenix. I made the changes to the two files and saved them, but i'm struggling with the next instruction of "Now simply install and turn on like any other add-on". I went through the admin area and I can't find an add-on to install. Do I install through the admin area or is there something else I need to do? Thanks
  4. @kgtee @JcMagpie thanks to both of you for the response. makes more sense now. i thought i was missing something within the admin console. i'll look at the options for getting them to display or i'll add the banner in myself. thanks again for the help.
  5. In all honesty I feel kind of silly asking this question, but I just can't figure this out. I'm trying to add a carousel picture to the front of my website and banner_manager appears to be the best way to do it. In my old site v2.3.4 I modified the index.php and wrote in the code to do it. I'm trying to modify less this time and keep things more within the lines of OSCommerce. I'm currently using following versions: Apache 2.4.41 -PHP version 7.2.21 -MySQL 5.7.27 -OSCOM CE Phoenix v1.0.2.0 My question is really on how does banner_manager work. I can go into admin/tools/Banner Manager and create a banner here. I can set a banner group. But, how do I get the banner to display on my site. I have looked everywhere within the admin area to find a place to control the banners. Can't find it. Or at this point do I need to add it to the pages I want manually? Thanks for any help
  6. All - thanks for the replies. That did the trick. I removed Modules->Content->Sub Category List and then reinstalled the module. When it re-added it had a bunch more criteria with it and the error went away. Thanks
  7. I made some pretty good progress today. I got my data almost all moved over. I have all products, orders and categories moved over. I still to work on users. I kept notes and will post them once I clean everything up. I did a comparison of database tables between 2.3.4 and Phoenix on those tables that were being migrated over. I do appear to be hitting a problem in regards to categories. It seems to be related to deprecated functionality in PHP 7.2.X. I'm running v7.2.21. I thought I read that it was supported on php 7.2 and even 7.3. Is this not the case? Should I downgrade to PHP 7.1? Here is the error that I am receiving when I click on a category. Use of undefined constant MODULE_CONTENT_IN_CATEGORY_LISTING_DISPLAY_ROW_SM - assumed 'MODULE_CONTENT_IN_CATEGORY_LISTING_DISPLAY_ROW_SM' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /usr/local/var/www/xxxx/includes/modules/content/index_nested/templates/tpl_cm_in_category_listing.php on line 16 Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /usr/local/var/www/xxxx/includes/modules/content/index_nested/templates/tpl_cm_in_category_listing.php on line 16 Fatal error: Uncaught DivisionByZeroError: Modulo by zero in /usr/local/var/www/xxxx/includes/modules/content/index_nested/templates/tpl_cm_in_category_listing.php:16 Stack trace: #0 /usr/local/var/www/xxxx/includes/modules/content/index_nested/cm_in_category_listing.php(49): include() #1 /usr/local/var/www/xxxx/includes/classes/osc_template.php(146): cm_in_category_listing->execute() #2 /usr/local/var/www/xxxx/index.php(46): oscTemplate->getContent('index_nested') #3 {main} thrown in /usr/local/var/www/xxxx/includes/modules/content/index_nested/templates/tpl_cm_in_category_listing.php on line 16 Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.
  8. @Heatherbell thank you @JcMagpie I saw that link as well earlier which is what lead me to try downgrading MySQL. In reading that, it's not quite clear to me if they are treating as a bug of if this is an intended change. Seems to be some debate. If left like this it will mean an incompatibility with MySQL 8. I believe this is all correct if I'm reading the bug report correctly. Thanks for the feedback. I do seem to be up and running at this point. I have the base system working. I'm going through and making my admin changes so that they match my old system. From here I'm going to migrate over my products and try to get that piece working. From what I am reading it seems like installing Easy Populate and using that for the migration might be the best / safest way to go. I see that some have migrated tables on a case by case basis, but I have found a list yet that shows which tables to migrate and which to avoid. I'll likely try and do some kind of table comparison between v2.3.4 and CE Phoenix and see where I get with that. Thanks again for the quick responses and feedback.
  9. I downgraded my version of mysql to 5.7.X and everything is working fine. My guess is it's a compatibility issue with mysql 8. Thanks
  10. Thanks everyone for the help. I'm actually working through a local install of Phoenix now and going to see how it all looks. I'm a big fan of community software and always help to support it, so if I go this route we will definitely chip in to help.
  11. All Thank you for any help that you can offer. I'm currently running a website on v2.3.4 and I decided to give oscommerce phoenix a go on my local server. My plan is to upgrade the v2.3.4 system to oscommerce phoenix. When installing phoenix out of the box, with default database I am receiving an error: 1525 - Incorrect DATETIME value: '' select banners_id, date_scheduled from banners where date_scheduled != '' I can see in the admin error that this error is coming from this SQL (as an example) and seems to be something to do with MYSql change to date comparison. I'm wondering if this is a problem others have come across. The only thread I can find on this appears the user was running v2.3.4 and he was told to upgrade to phoenix. Are there certain versions of MySQL, PHP and Apache that are supported with Phoenix? Here is what I am running: - Apache 2.4.41 -PHP version 7.2.21 -MySQL 8.0.17 via Homebrew -OSCOM CE Phoenix v1.0.2.0 I'm hoping maybe something i'm running isn't a supported version and this is an easy change. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  12. @JcMagpie thanks for the response. i'm ok with having to go through the add-ons again and figure those out. The CSS isn't bad for me to work with. In my past I was comfortable in CSS so if needed I'm sure I can pick it up again. I know its changed a lot since the 5-10 years ago when I used to use it. You mention talking to one of the partners. How do I go about that? @Heatherbell thanks for the information. I think you have confirmed what I was thinking. I was leaning in the direction of going over to Phoenix but I wasn't sure if it was the natural progression from v2.3.4. It sounds like it seems to be just that and it sounds like you were successful with the migration. The makes me optimistic about the move. I'm thinking that I will load phoenix locally and try to pull my database into it and see how it works.
  13. All I apologize for asking a question that I have read a bunch of threads already on, but after reading the different threads I feel like i'm more confused. So, I want to make sure that I fully understand the direction to go. I'm currently running oscommerce v2.3.4. I have pretty heavily customized it, with some add-ons and some of my own work. But, this was quite a while ago that I did all of this. The problem with the website now is that it's not very mobile friendly and I need to correct that. The real question is what is the best approach? These are the two choices I believe I have, but I'm open to other ideas -- I have read to move over to the oscommerce phoenix version. This seems to be the direction that people are pushing for mobile friendly since it is responsive. However, when I look I don't see many themes available for it to customize the user experience. Is this new enough that they just aren't available yet? Should I just do my own work to get the look and feel that I want? -- Seems that there are themes out there that work with v2.3.4 are claim to be mobile friendly. They are relatively cheap and i'm a firm believer that time is money. so, if it's going to save me a bunch of time i'm willing to spend a couple of dollars. It seems that v2.3.4 is pretty old. I know i've been on it for quite a number of years. If changes are going to have to be done am I better off taking this opportunity to upgrade. Is Phoenix the natural direction to go with an upgrade? Thanks for any help with getting a better understanding of how the oscommerce development cycle is going and understanding where to move next Thanks
  14. geoffrey As a test i took two individual products and gave them each the same p.products_model, which when exported became v_products_model. I then edited each of these two lines and imported these two lines back into the system. It worked flawlessly. So, it appears that p.products_model does not need to be unique (which make more sense) but it does need to be populated in a system in order to use Easy Populate. Do you know if there is a specific reason that this field was chosen to be required. I am trying to decide of my best next course of action. I see two options.... 1) Edit easy populate so that it does not require this field populated. Not sure of scope of this project as I haven't looked at the code quite enough. 2) Populate this field in my system with a garbage value and then change the product_info.php page so that it does not display the value on the page Do you agree that these are my options? thanks again for the help.
  15. geoffrey Thanks for the reply. So in looking easypopulate.php it appears that v_products_model is p.products_model. In my system this is blank because I don't use models for our business. Because I don't use the field I am not 100% sure of its use, but I wouldn't think a product model would be unique among all products. I notice that you say 'user facing unique identifier' and I assume you say user facing because the true unique identifier would be p.products_id but that is not user facing. I am just trying to understand how people who don't have product models use this field so that they can use easypopulate. Does it truly expect this field to be unique amongst all products because the only way I see that working is by making it a auto increment number. thanks again for the help and I hope you can give me a little more information to point me in the right direction.
