    Estimated Timescale

    Hi Please can you let us know what your expected release schedule is for OsCommerce 4? We keep seeing posts for more Demo zoom's but it would be great to hands on some real code. Thanks and Best Wishes Mark

    Typical "How to" questions

    How about specific country based specifications, i.e. a UK based store, a French base store, a German based store? I'd be happy to help code the UK specific ones with Royal Mail shipping, Nochex and Paypal payments. The screen shots are looking great, I'm looking forward to looking under the cover Best Wishes Mark

    osCommerce v4 demo

    Looks great. Can categories be limited to specific user groups?

    App Store or Add-on Store or...?

    Add-on, as it's adding functionality not providing a unique application.

    API for OSCommerce integration.

    Hi Mike It depends on what you're trying to do, there are several addons designed to feed your product data into amazon/ebay and the whole osCommerce app is written in PHP so you can write extensions and your own api. However there's nothing out of the box for integration with ebay and amazon. Mark
  6. Hi Lee,

    The site won't let me message you, so here's what I tried to send:

    Hi Lee


    I've disabled login so you should be able to get straight in. If you click on Products and then edit an existing you can see how Harald used variants on the Dymo. If you want to access the raw product attributes component then check it out under Mark's Debug Menu!

    I've backed up the database so if anything goes wrong I can always restore it.

    Paypal Standard Payments Failing

    Thanks so much for this thread guys. I started having issues with paypal payments not coming through and I've been chasing all around the place trying to find the issue. The old version was missing both DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA and DigiCert Global Root G2 (SHA-256) I ran araxis merge on the phoenix cert and the one downloaded from here and they're identical. Thank you. Can I suggest this gets made as an announcement in the forums so people know to update. On a slightly different issue my Paypal app says its version 5.0.10 and then pops up An update is available for this App! . Clicking the button does nothing and from what I can see on the forum it's the latest version. Anyone got ideas? Cheers Mark
  9. I'm having the same issue, i receive a payment email from paypal but it doesn't call back to the website.

    Hi Valquiria

    Just wondering, why you are offering this when Phoenix is actually on not and also why you are offering this when you're don't appear to be a project developer?

    Like I said, Just wondering....

    Hi Mark,

    The idea of my post is to have a list of certified addons and not to be a place to exchange ideas. I will create another post for that purpose.

    It would be very good if you can add to the list the addons that you test and can certify that they work correctly with the version of Phoenix that is the one that was tested.

    Regarding your other queries:

    As I am discriminated against accessing the Phoenix club, I have no way of updating from version to Unfortunately, this information is not available in the forum. Therefore I am testing the addons in and I did not have time to test them in or the next versions that may appear. It would be great if you can help me and test them and publish your results.

    It is my way of helping the Phoenix project (although I am not welcome in it). I have no commercial interest (as others have) I just want to help new users to see what addon listings exist in the market. All this information is public. I'm just ordering it for the benefit of the community.


  11. Hi Mike

    The database changes in were increasing the varchars to 255. I created an update script for Gary but he's not included it in the package. You can use the following SQL.

    /* Update to existing installations adjusting VARCHARs to 255 in length */

    ALTER TABLE categories
    CHANGE COLUMN categories_image categories_image VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL;

    ALTER TABLE categories_description
    CHANGE COLUMN categories_name categories_name  VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
    CHANGE COLUMN categories_seo_keywords categories_seo_keywords VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
    CHANGE COLUMN categories_seo_title categories_seo_title  VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL;

    ALTER TABLE manufacturers
    CHANGE COLUMN manufacturers_name manufacturers_name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
    CHANGE COLUMN manufacturers_image manufacturers_image VARCHAR(255);

    ALTER TABLE manufacturers_info
    CHANGE COLUMN manufacturers_seo_keywords manufacturers_seo_keywords VARCHAR(255)  NULL,
    CHANGE COLUMN manufacturers_seo_title manufacturers_seo_title VARCHAR(255) NULL;

    ALTER TABLE orders_products
    CHANGE COLUMN products_model products_model VARCHAR(255),
    CHANGE COLUMN products_name products_name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL;

    ALTER TABLE orders_products_attributes
    CHANGE COLUMN products_options products_options VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
    CHANGE COLUMN products_options_values products_options_values VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL;

    ALTER TABLE products
    CHANGE COLUMN products_model products_model VARCHAR(255),
    CHANGE COLUMN products_image products_image VARCHAR(255);

    ALTER TABLE products_description
    CHANGE COLUMN products_name products_name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
    CHANGE COLUMN products_seo_keywords products_seo_keywords VARCHAR(255) NULL ,
    CHANGE COLUMN products_seo_title products_seo_title VARCHAR(255) NULL ;

    ALTER TABLE products_images
    CHANGE COLUMN image image VARCHAR(255);

    ALTER TABLE products_options
    CHANGE COLUMN products_options_name products_options_name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT '';

    ALTER TABLE products_options_values
    CHANGE COLUMN products_options_values_name products_options_values_name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT '';

      Thanks Mark, that saved be time!


    2. mfleeson


      No worries. The original git update to Gary had this script in but he didn't include it in the update.

    3. ecartz

      ecartz is available on GitHub, but for updates, the SQL is here.

    Royal Mail shipping module

    My version of the code includes a fallback so that if the none of the pricing works out, it assumes I will send it via courier and charges £12.99 (hermes pricing) I've almost finished updating the pricing matrix for the this years Royal Mail pricing so I'll tack it here soon.

    Royal Mail shipping module

    Hi I have a two versions of the Royal Mail, one for UK and one for Airmail both which work with 2.3.4 BS. I'll be looking to port them to phoenix once I'm up and running development again. Let me know if you're still interested in this being available. Cheers Mark

    Paypal App 4.039 on 234BS - Fatal Error

    Tracked the issue down. My version of oscommerce is wrapped in Joomla JCommerce and in application_top is a whole load of globals. Added it to that and it worked although it came up with define errors and didn't come up with the auto-configure. Will continue to experiment. Thanks Mark
  15. Has anyone here tried installing the new Paypal App. I'm getting an error 500 after clicking install. Traced it to Fatal error: Call to a member function getDef() on a non-object in /home/testls/public_html/2016/components/com_jcommerce/includes/apps/paypal/modules/PS/PS.php on line 24 which is trying to access a global but doesnt appear to have been defined! In the function OSCOM_PayPal_PS there is a global $OSCOM_PayPal; but it's returning null. Any ideas? Thanks Mark
