    Help needed understanding gallery module

    Hi @Heatherbell and @beerbee, This should be so simple.... I have now tried both of your answers - cut and paste into user.css - uploaded my site and still nothing is happening - I have checked and double, even triple checked that it is in the right location and I have cleared my bowsers memory incase that was the issue - and still no change I read through the link you sent as well which to me just reiterated than cutting and pasting what you sent through should work If I am using a template (that I got from burt) would this mean that there is another .css file that is overwriting my user.css file? could there be anything else that you can think of that would be causing the issue?

    Help needed understanding gallery module

    Thanks Christoph, answer 1 worked great... still finding my feet on a very different platform to my original osocommerce site... Unfortunately answer 2 did not work, I found a couple of other 'solutions' as well that were very similar, I am just having no luck. is it possible that it is not looking at the user.css file? does this need to be activated as the default or final .css file somewhere ?
  4. Hi, I am trying to setup the layout of my product info page on phoenix Im using the PI Modules and playing with the gallery layout.... I have 2 questions .... 1. Can someone explain to me (or direct me to an explanation) of how the image sizes are adjusted... I assume that the main image and the secondary image are all controlled in the Thumbnail width section... at the moment my primary image is showing full size, so that when you click on the image and the modal pops us the images in the modal are smaller. I want to reduce the size of the primary image by half (I have been able to reduce the size of the secondary images as I want them) but I cant seem to get it to change - am I looking in the completely wrong area? the setup I have in the thumbnail width box is col-8 col-sm-6 col-lg-2 2. is there a way to change the colour of the swipe arrows and indicators - I have a lot of white in my product images and they often cannot be seen.

    Auto Update Currencies

    No it doesn't. - does this mean it is not related to auto update?

    Auto Update Currencies

    hey @Jack_mcs,I It is related to Auto update currencies, I am using version 1 (as I mentioned in the post this is for my active 2.3.4 site which is going to be retired soon) I thought because Auto Update currency calls localization.php this was the place to post this, sorry if I am wrong.

    Auto Update Currencies

    Hi, I am working on a new phoenix site, but have just realized that my auto update currency in my live site, which is 2.3.4 is not working. Yet it has only been a few months that it has not worked for ... At first I thought it was that my API key had lapsed, but I got that checked and put the link into a browser with my API key and it worked fine... so not sure why its not working... this is the error I am getting in the error log; PHP Warning: file(https://xurrency.com/api/gbp/aud/1?key=xxxx): failed to open stream: Connection refused in /home/creativ3/public_html/orders/admin/includes/functions/localization.php on line 19 PHP Warning: implode(): Invalid arguments passed in /home/creativ3/public_html/orders/admin/includes/functions/localization.php on line 20 PHP Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/creativ3/public_html/orders/admin/includes/functions/localization.php on line 22 PHP Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/creativ3/public_html/orders/admin/includes/functions/localization.php on line 29 if I put the link into a browser this is the response I get: {"status":"ok","code":0,"result":{"value":"1.7995","base":"gbp","target":"aud","updated_at":"2020-09-24T00:00:08Z"}} So my API Key is working.... here is the appropriate code from localization.php; function quote_xurrency_currency($base, $target = DEFAULT_CURRENCY) { if ($target == $base) return 1; $base = strtolower($base); $target = strtolower($target); $page = file('https://xurrency.com/api/' . $base . '/' . $target . '/1?key=' . XURRENCY_KEY); $result = implode(",", $page); $result = json_decode($result,true); foreach ($result as $key => $value2) { if ($key == 'code') { if ($value2 != '0') { return false; } } } foreach ($value2 as $key2 => $value3) { if ($key2 == 'value') { $value = $value3; } } if (sizeof($value) > 0) { return $value; } else { return false; } } It has been so long since I got this to work that I am having trouble working out what the problem could be - I'm obviously not the strongest coder - I can probably solve it with a couple of hours work, but if anyone with a keener eye than mine can see the problem I would really appreciate it.
  9. Hi I’m looking for good options for templates for Phoenix... I have found @burt’s templates, and think one of those will work for me, but just want to know if there are other good options out there... are oscommerce responsive bootstrap templates any use or are they too much trouble? happy to pay a good price for a good template. If anyone can direct me to any sites (assuming that doesn’t break any rules) I’d really appreciate it.

    connecting to database issues

    ok the admin issue was due to .htaccess not being updated ... and I can access the customers from there but the front of house is still having the same issues
  11. Hi, I have just asked my hosting company to set up a dev site that they have cloned my existing website and databases onto... when I go to the oscommerce section of the website - the site is being populated from the database, but when i try to log in as a customer it simply reloads the home page without logging me in or giving me an error. I created a new customer - which is now on the database - but after I created it it gave me the 'congratulations' page but the customer was still not logged in... I have checked through the config files and I think these are all in order, is there something else I might be missing to get this working? the admin side is not loading either - after filling in the login info (on the popup not on the login page) if gives me a 500 Internal Server Error. any help would be appreciated.
  12. Hi, I have installed the Payway shopping cart plugin - which was supplied by my bank but not actually supported by them for technical help. The Payway "trusted frame" set up is server to server - like paypal, where the customer is redirected to the Payway site to make payment then redirected back to the oscommerce site once payment is made. Successful transactions seem to work fine. However there is a 'return to website' button on their site - if you decide not to use this payment method it is supposed to return you to the shopping cart. however when you use this option it returns you to an empty shopping cart and OScommerce has treated it like a successful order (ie it shows up in order history as pending in both front of house and admin ) I am hoping someone has come across this issue with payway or similar add on and can give me some tips on how to fix it

    Help with Modal Addons

    Thanks @JcMagpie, is this the one you are suggesting? https://apps.oscommerce.com/89uS9&modular-checkout-pages-bs
  14. Hi, Is there a particular modal Addon that I can add to the main body of my website... rather than in the left or right box or shopping cart type sections. I have one or two places on my website (one on checkout_confirmation page, and 'Ill probably want to add one on the payment page as well) .... If there is not one for my particular need then what would be the best addon for me to modify (particularly thinking I will need a couple of them operating at once on different pages) I am using the most up to date BS frozen

    call to new function in addon

    thanks @raiwa... that was what I needed to know! Yes I am modifying one of your addons - or at least trying to - at this stage trying to create the ability to hide products from particular wholesale groups
