  1. I have installed this contribution successfully. I would like to expand on it and use it for the contact us option and tell a friend. Could someone take a look at it and help me with the coding. I would appreciate it very much. Link to Visual Verify contribution. Thank you. Lee
  2. Dear Surfalot. In your Ep Manual for your current EP version I have read it in full including the install manual. Item 5 says to contact your host to find out what the maximum upload size for your php environment is and the length of time the script is allowed to run. I asked them and they referred me to this page. Here are the details but it is confusing as some items are similar in name and size so I wanted to know if you or someone on the forum could clarify so when I set up EP.php I could set them correct as suggested by your documentation. Here is what I have. magic_quotes_gpc On On magic_quotes_runtime Off Off magic_quotes_sybase Off Off mail.force_extra_parameters no value no value max_execution_time 45 45 max_input_nesting_level 64 64 max_input_time 60 60 memory_limit 96M 96M open_basedir no value no value output_buffering no value no value output_handler no value no value post_max_size 32M 32M precision 6 6 realpath_cache_size 16K 16K realpath_cache_ttl 120 120 register_argc_argv Off Off register_globals Off Off register_long_arrays On On report_memleaks On On report_zend_debug On On safe_mode Off Off safe_mode_exec_dir no value no value safe_mode_gid Off Off safe_mode_include_dir no value no value sendmail_from no value no value sendmail_path /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i serialize_precision 100 100 short_open_tag On On SMTP localhost localhost smtp_port 25 25 sql.safe_mode Off Off track_errors Off Off unserialize_callback_func no value no value upload_max_filesize 24M 24M As you can see here for me this is from my host. It says max_execution_time 45 but it also says max_input_time 60 So which is the answer to your question on length of time the script is allowed to run? It says post_max_size 32M but it also says upload_max_filesize 24M but I have a feeling we are going with the 24M with the Maximum allowed upload size for your php environment. I know Surfalot is busy and if anyone else can answer this great that saves him time to concentrate on other things I would greatly appreciate the clarification as my hosting site could not do so. If you see any other things that are strange in what I have posted that pertain to my setup of EP from Surfalot please advise as I will next be going through the full setup of EP.php from the manual and may have further question for clarification purposes and I do use the forum search but it does not alway render and answer that is either clear or specific to my direct question that allows me to proceed without caution. Thank you. Leon

    Faster Page Loads

    The one problem I have found with this contribution which searching this thread for which I have not found a solution for is for instance when you update your payment sort order for say your 4 payments options it does not update the main screen view. You have to go back to configuration click edit then update and then go back to modules to payments then you can see the changes. Did I miss something in this thread that talked about this? Leon
  4. For those attempting to setup Paypal Express in osCommerce 2.2 RC2a and can not find out where to get the three required API's needed here is the information to make it work directly from Paypal. My Paypal Express now works after following these steps from Paypal Developement Center. How do I generate an API Signature? You need to have a PayPal Business account. If you're testing with a Sandbox test account, repeat these steps for your Sandbox test accounts and your live accounts. We recommend having a pen and paper ready, and opening a separate web browser to perform these steps. Here's How: Click the My Account tab. Click Profile at the top of the page. Click the Request API credentials link in the Account Information column Click the Set up PayPal API credentials and permissions link. Click Request API Credentials link. Select API signature. Check the Agree and Submit button. Click Done. Write down your API username and API password information. Copy the signature and save it to a file or some other location. This is your API signature. Hope this helps you. Leon Sargent

    Found it... Looking in the wrong place. Do I need to clear the where the cache info was being stored or will this just prevent it from being foo barred in the future? Leon

    Faster Page Loads

    I downloaded this contribution and installed it on osCommerce 2.2 RC2a I could not apply your patch as I could now matter what part of your search code I tried to find to locate the code in module.php I could not find it. So as for 2.2 RC2a everything seems to be working fine. I went from 22.14 second page load to 12.36 second page load. Now my next mission is shrinking down images and working on infobox calls for images to trans_pixels to cut down on HTML calls. Leon
  7. I never did get an answer on this as I don't want to start coding only to do all this work to find out it is not going to happen! I am reposting. :blink: Leon
  8. Surfalot. Your version of EP V 2.76g -- to clarify is 2.2 rc2a compatible and you can use it with either registered globals on or off? You can set registered globals on or off in the PHP files of 2.76g? That is all I need to know and I am off to coding. :rolleyes: Leon
  9. Just a question. I have been away from osCommerce for a bit... Is RCa2 coded with Registered Globals off for PHP.ini as it was known to be a tentative security hole. For I know a lot of contributions are in the process of being converted to RCa2 and still require Register Globals to be on. Leon
  10. Good Evening. Is this version 2.4 compatible with osCommerce 2.2 RC2a? Leon
  11. Question. With so many revision of Easy Populate and it branches over the years some have continued to be developed and some have ceased. So I have osCommerce 2.2 RC2a. What version of Easy Populate should I be using. If someone could supply a link to the correct and the most stable release version or the exact name in the contribution section of osCommerce.com I would truely appreciate that. Thank you. Leon Sargent
  12. Good Evening. What are the minimum required fields required for Easy Populate to function as every vendor I work with gives me different amounts of data. I can guess that Product ID, Price, Weight, Cost, Sku, Sales Tax long and short description and Available to be the basics to the function of EP. If I have the basics great if not please advise. What is the current basic version of EP that works with OsCommerce 2.2 MS 2. As EP has evolved it has been added to and allot of the extras I don't need. What is the link to the Easy Populate Support Forum or have I found it. Any help appreciated. Thank you. Leon Sargent
  13. I installed SEO 2.2e with update and everything comes up fine in catalog and on admin. When I click on a default install product link I get this. The requested URL /microsoft-intellimouse-p-3.html was not found on this server. Apache/1.3.33 Server at http://d-65-175-186-112.metrocast.net/ Port 80 I am using my ISP as the server and as my database server. Every other link works fine. I have the .htaccess file in /Documents that is my root directory for the website. I tried / and /Documents and /Documents/ in .htaccess but that does not change the error message. Anyone figured out this issue. Probably something I do not have set in admin but I have yet to find it. Leon Sargent
  14. I need to install Easy Populate. I have no need for attributes. I have Oscommerce 2.2 MS2 last version update before RC1. What is the last version of EP that I can use that does not contain attributes that I can use. Leon
  15. i have searched the contributions but I can not remember the name and the ones I found don't seem to fit what it is I am looking for. I remember when installed you would set you specials in admin when you went to the store there was a box, not an info box in the middle of the site that had specials pulled from the specials you set in admin. If you refreshed the stores webpage the specials would be replaces with a new set of specials from the list of specials you had defined in Admin there for if a customer came back the next day when the store loaded the specials would have changed. The specials changed every time the store.com/index page is refreshed. Anyone know the name or have a link to that file. Does it still exsist. Leon
  16. I have read the whole manual on EP. I did not come across anything that tell me how to fill out the attributes columns. Could someone clearify this for me. What information goes into these columns. v_attribute_options_id_1 v_attribute_options_name_1_1 v_attribute_options_name_1_2 v_attribute_options_name_1_3 There are Attribute colums all the way up to 5_2_3 I assume these can be left blank. Can they be removed. Do I have to change any config files? Leon
  17. In my Apache httpd.conf file I have this. I am using SEO. Will any of these directives cause the SEO contribution not to function? Apache 1.3.3 Mac OS X 10.4.7 php and mysql 4.x hosted locally. # Each directory to which Apache has access, can be configured with respect # to which services and features are allowed and/or disabled in that # directory (and its subdirectories). # # First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of # permissions. # <Directory /> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None </Directory> # # Note that from this point forward you must specifically allow # particular features to be enabled - so if something's not working as # you might expect, make sure that you have specifically enabled it # below. # # # This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to. # <Directory "/Library/WebServer/Documents"> # # This may also be "None", "All", or any combination of "Indexes", # "Includes", "FollowSymLinks", "ExecCGI", or "MultiViews". # # Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All" # doesn't give it to you. # Options FollowSymLinks MultiViews # # This controls which options the .htaccess files in directories can # override. Can also be "All", or any combination of "Options", "FileInfo", # "AuthConfig", and "Limit" # AllowOverride None # # Controls who can get stuff from this server. # Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> # # UserDir: The name of the directory which is appended onto a user's home # directory if a ~user request is received. # <IfModule mod_userdir.c> UserDir Documents </IfModule> # # Control access to UserDir directories. The following is an example # for a site where these directories are restricted to read-only. # #<Directory /Users/*/Sites> # AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit # Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec # <Limit GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND> # Order allow,deny # Allow from all # </Limit> # <LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND> # Order deny,allow # Deny from all # </LimitExcept> #</Directory> # # DirectoryIndex: Name of the file or files to use as a pre-written HTML # directory index. Separate multiple entries with spaces. # <IfModule mod_dir.c> DirectoryIndex index.html </IfModule> # # AccessFileName: The name of the file to look for in each directory # for access control information. # AccessFileName .htaccess # # The following lines prevent .htaccess files from being viewed by # Web clients. Since .htaccess files often contain authorization # information, access is disallowed for security reasons. Comment # these lines out if you want Web visitors to see the contents of # .htaccess files. If you change the AccessFileName directive above, # be sure to make the corresponding changes here. # # Also, folks tend to use names such as .htpasswd for password # files, so this will protect those as well. # <Files ~ "^\.([Hh][Tt]|[Dd][ss]_[ss])"> Order allow,deny Deny from all Satisfy All </Files> # # Apple specific filesystem protection. # <Files "rsrc"> Order allow,deny Deny from all Satisfy All </Files> <Directory ~ ".*\.\.namedfork"> Order allow,deny Deny from all Satisfy All </Directory> Will any of this conflict or stop SEO from functioning? If so what do I need to change if you would please. Leon Sargent

    EPA or EPB

    I was going to use EPA as my data files have URL's to the images inside the file. It was recommended that I download the .zip image file instead of using URL's so okay I can go with that. So now that I don't need EPA for URLs do I use EPB? Now it looks like EPA and EPB, I am really not sure but I think this is what I read, can when importing a data file where lets say 4 items are no longer being sold by the vendor and have been removed in the data file they will be deleted on the import of the EPA or EPB file from my stores data base? Is this information correct?
  19. I found the problem it was a Chmod 777 issue for the temp folder .. it works now ... Lee
  20. Mibble. I am not on a Windows System I am currently using OS X. I wonder this. My absolute path is this. G5/Library/WebServer/Documents/Catalog/temp or I have a temp folder in my my Documents directory as I do not use the catalog folder but I do have a /temp folder in there. My other temp directory is here. /G5/LIbrary/WebServer/Documents/temp/ I have tried the following two paths and niether changes the problem that I am having. I have tried /G5/Library/WebServer/Documents/temp/ and /Library/WEbServer/Documents/temp/ And I still have the same problem. Can you give me any further information about how to set the path locally. Thank you. Leon
  21. Good Afternoon. I have taken a copy of my hosted website and downloaded the whole thing for use on my local machine. I was able to correct the configure.php in catalog and admin to connect to my local database and to set the server information to localhost. Everything works fine so far except this one problem. I created an EP file that I wanted to import into my local machines database. I choose the EP file then click insert into database and it comes back with this information. File uploaded. Temporary filename: /var/tmp/phpcckWxy User filename: EP2005.txt Size: 40825 It does not show me the listed of files being uploaded as it did when I was remote it just comes back with the above information with no data added to the database. Could someone explain to me or help me correct the problem. Lee
  22. For some reason if a customer has a voucher balance and tries to use it at check out the the little click circle to indicate the use of the voucher balance is missing so the customer can not use his or her voucher balance. Anyone have an idea of how to fix this? Here is how I have my order total set up. I thought this might be the problem. Discount Coupons 740 ? Gift Vouchers 9 ? Low Order Fee ? Shipping 2 ? Sub-Total 1 ? Tax 3 ? Total 900 ? Any help appreciated. Lee
  23. You know looking at this code: // if the order contains only virtual products, forward the customer to the billing page as // a shipping address is not needed // ICW CREDIT CLASS GV AMENDE LINE BELOW // if ($order->content_type == 'virtual') { if (($order->content_type == 'virtual') || ($order->content_type == 'virtual_weight') ) { if (!tep_session_is_registered('shipping')) tep_session_register('shipping'); $shipping = false; $sendto = false; tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PAYMENT, '', 'SSL')); } ****** I noticed that the above code says that if all items in the cart are virtual then skip shipping and go to check out. This works great for virtual only items. $total_weight = $cart->show_weight(); $total_count = $cart->count_contents(); ************* Here the code should read something like take cart minus out virtual or no weight items and then calculate shipping accordingly. Could this be the reason that when I add virtual items with real items all get charged a table rate for shipping but if the cart just has virtual items then there is no shipping and the page goes to checkout_payment Can anyone help me out with this? Strider? Leon Sargent By the way I use SMC's Table Rate and it works with virtual items just not with the mix of virtual and non virtual items. They it adds shipping to the whole cart.
  24. Question. I am starting to work with new vedors that do not supply weight of their products. I am considering using them if I convert from UPS and USPS to Table Rate. Can I use CCCV with Table Rate with it based on Cost not weight? Will the Gift Vouchers vouchers be charged shipping if I use this option with Cost not Weight? Lee
