  1. I have a question regarding this contribution. Forgive me if this question was already answered, but after doing a browse through first dozen of 151 pages on this topic...plus unsuccessful searches, I thought I would see if anyone here knows about this bug. Recent version of this contribution downloaded and installed few months ago. Just discovered by accident that when using FIXED AMOUNT: 10.00 that it is not taking $10.00 off total of order, but rather taking $10 off every SINGLE item in the order. Tried this out myself few times with same results. Can anyone assist me on this? Not sure if this is a setting or known bug or what, but obviously an issue.

    [Contribution] - USPS Methods

    Just got done installing USPS Methods 4.3.2 on a clients site and noticed an issue. Domestic is showing option for FLAT RATE BOX, while international shows options for SMALL FLAT RATE BOX, MEDIUM FLAT RATE BOX, and LARGE FLAT RATE BOX. 1. On front end for domestic with DOMESTIC FLAT RATE BOX checked, it is showing MEDIUM FLAT RATE box label and price? Its defaulted to medium at like $10 vs. small for $5.15? 2. How come it doesnt show the options for flat rate small, medium and large under DOMESTIC? Any help on this is greatly appreciated, as my client needs to be able to offer small flat rate for his products, and would like to improve this module to offer all 3 since each client has different needs. Thanks in advance :).

    Steve, Sorry I was unable to help out on this. I am as stumped as you right now, since this error line: SQL error Unknown column 'products.manufacturers_id' in 'on clause' Indicates the manufacturers_id is missing from the products table. Anyone else have any ideas?

    GREAT NEWS! I am currently working on another update to the automated feeds system which shall include some general improvements, but also include some never seen before feeds! The following are what is being worked on right now, but only time will tell if these will all make the final cut: 1. shopping.com 2. buy.com 3. nextag.com More updates to follow as they are done.

    Hello Steve, I am 99% sure that you have a field missing in your PRODUCTS table, which appears to be the manufacturers_id field. Ran into a similar issue with another client, unrelated to this contribution, and that was the end result. Go into your phpMyAdmin tool or other MySQL tool, VIEW the PRODUCTS table. Typically this field is between the products_tax_class_id and the products_ordered fields. If you do not see it there, then for whatever reason it was deleted from your database. Setup the field again as follows into the PRODUCTS table: `manufacturers_id` int(11) default NULL Be sure to let me know if this resolved your issue.

    Paulie stated: Not a bad idea, since so many people are using the salesmaker contribution, including me. However since I try to update these contributions to make them universal so they are not dependant upon other contributions, I would probably code this out in such a manner whereby it: A. Tries to check for the salesmaker database table. B. IF exists, then see if any sales exist / don't exist determine product price. c. IF doesn't exist, continue using existing code. Thoughts?

    I would assume this is caused since most SEO URL systems do some rework to the /catalog/includes/functions/html_output.php tep_link function, but no corresponding updates to the admin area, which is really not needed anyways. The store feed files build their links using the /admin/includes/functions/html_output.php tep_link function versus the front end one, so thus it would not create SEO friendly URLs automatically. Since I am unsure which SEO contribution you are using, and assuming that it DOES do a modification to the tep_link function, my suggestion would be one of two things: 1. Modify your admin tep_link function (not suggested) 2. Modify the contribution store feed files to pull from the frontend tep_link function instead of the admin one (not easy, but doable) 3. Copy the tep_link function from your /catalog/includes/functions/html_output.php file, into the /admin/includes/functions/html_output.php file....rename that function say 'tep_link2' anywhere in the store feed files, then try running again to see if it works okay for you. Let me know if this helps.

    Hello Jessica, Without any additional information or php error code, it is bit of a guessing game for me to try to troubleshoot for you on this. Best suggestion is for you to ensure that your /feeds/ folder is set via ftp to CHMOD 777, which is a very common reason why it may not be working. Let me know if this helps or if you figured out a solution already in advance, what you did to resolve so others can benefit from this.

    GOOGLE BASE CONTACT: This is the URL to use to report issues with your google base account. This can be used for reporting FTP problems, or issues with your bulk upload. http://base.google.com/support/bin/request.py

    FTP LOGIN ISSUE: With the revamp of Froogle, now called Google Base, their system now requires you to do the following for creating a bulk upload for your store: 1. Create a bulk upload: indicate filename, title, description, and optional URL. 2. Create a new FTP account: many people miss this one and just use the email / password to FTP into google for uploading bulk uploads. The issue I have run across today, and confirmed with 3 other customers, is that after setting up an FTP login set and including it into your admin "feed settings" section, it continued to come back with the FTP connection errors most people are reporting. My next step in troubleshooting was to attempt to use these logins via a browser and an FTP client, with logic being IF I can successfully login via browser or FTP client, that indicates the issue is most likely not with the coding but with Google. Sure enough I plugged in uploads.google.com then my username and password into an FTP client, and it rejected it. This may or may not be the reason so many people feeds are being rejected, but if you do experience a FTP error when running your feed, I suggest you take your logins and plug them into an FTP program first. If it rejects it, then report it to google. If not, then report it back here with the exact error to help us improve the code. Thanks.

    A few people have reported running into errors like the following when running the froogle.php page: Here is an explanation of this error and a solution. 1. OPEN /ADMIN/FROOGLE.PHP. 2. Search for: $OutFile = DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT."feeds/".FROOGLE_FTP_FILENAME; The issue causing this for some people is the DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT variable, found within the /admin/includes/configure.php page. Here is an example of a common definition for this variable that will toss that error: define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/home/somesite/www'); // where the pages are located on the server And here is the proper way this should be listed: define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/home/somesite/www/'); // where the pages are located on the server Notice at the end of the second example there is a / after the www. Without this / you will continue to run across this problem. You have one of two solutions: A. Change this in the /admin/froogle.php page from this: $OutFile = DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT."feeds/".FROOGLE_FTP_FILENAME; To this $OutFile = DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT."/feeds/".FROOGLE_FTP_FILENAME; B. Change the DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT in the /admin/includes/configure.php from this: define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/home/somesite/www'); // where the pages are located on the server To this: define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', '/home/somesite/www/'); // where the pages are located on the server Hope this helps out.
  12. In response to the numerous reported issues and suggestions I have received so far for this contribution, I am starting a new thread to discuss: - reported bugs - fixes made - suggested improvements Over the coming few weeks I will be making some improvements to the coding to combat against incompatibility errors many people have found with the automatic uploads, plus adding some new features in based upon your feedback. So anyone having issues or suggestions for improvements I ask that you post them here, and I will post either fixes, or notifications once new versions have been released. Thanks.
  13. Have a client who requires addition of multiple productions into each page. This is not a "family of products" type of setup. The store in question is selling bed linen sets, etc, whereby they want to show something like this: PRODUCT SET NAME General description MODEL STYLE DESCRIPTION COLOR WAS (RETAIL) OUR PRICE QUANTITY DUVET SET (this is first product in set) 12345 Single Some text [dropdown] $50.00 $40.00 [textfield] 56789 Single Some text [dropdown] $50.00 $40.00 [textfield] PILLOW COVERS (this is second product in set) 54585 Single Some text [dropdown] $10.00 $7.00 [textfield] Get the idea? Any contributions close to this or good for a core start? Thanks.

    Any luck on this item? Anyone?

    Shipping weight is doubled on the shipping page

    Do you have extra weight added to your items? Check in ADMIN > CONFIGURATION > SHIPPING / PACKAGING: Package Tar weight. That would be the only place I could guess it may be coming from. If that is 0 or null, then you have a problem elsewhere.
