    Hi Flying Kites, I am definitely viewing...And cant get tell a friend, or cross sell to work....And cant get anyone to help me either. The worst part is that I have even seen members on this board who have them working correctly on thier sites - I send them direct emails and can not even get them to respond to me. :(

    For some reason I STILL cannot get my cross-sell to work. I have visited a few members' sites that are in this forum, and I see that many have it working properly. PLEASE spare a moment to help me fix this. I have done an uninstall and reinstall twice now, and still... Did you do adjustments that you can think of? We can comare code and figure it out quickly. Please...

    Has anyone gotten their "Cross-Sell Articles to Products" working yet? I can't :(. I am in the Admin section. I click on Cross-Sell Articles. This loads the page /admin/articles_xsell.php. On this page, it lists all my articles, with columns of ID, Article Name, Associated Products, Cross-sell Actions, and a blank column. For each record, the ID shows, the name shows, and default text/link of "Add/Remove" shows in Cross-sell actions. Obviously Associated Products is blank (--) cuz I cant get it to work yet. And the last column also has a (--) and I have no idea what that is suppose to be anyway... So I find an article in the list, and click on the Add/Remove link, let's say with Article ID 40. This loads /admin/articles_xsell.php?add_related_article_ID=40. The page lists now a column of check-boxes, Product IDs, & Product names. So I find the product I want to associate with the article ID 40 & select the checkbox. There are two form buttons - Save & Cancel. I click on Save. It then RE-loads the exact same page.../admin/articles_xsell.php?add_related_article_ID=40...Nothing happens.. I do check the site however, and there is no cross-sell happening at the bottom of the article... Any ideas?

    This bb_logged_in.php thing is throwing errors...Please clarify... Originally you said that you created this file, and loaded it into catalog/bb_logged_in.php Inside the code of this file, line 17 is: require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_BB_LOGGED_IN); this is obviously calling itself again, however from a different location... Please clarify. Thanks. let's see if I can piece this back together, it wasn't that hard, just had to put together a few pieces. 1) I copied login.php to login_bb.php, put it in the same directory. 2) modifications to login_bb.php were as follows (as reported by my weak memory aided by WinMerge): find this: // restore cart contents ? ? ? ?$cart->restore_contents(); ? ? ? ?if (sizeof($navigation->snapshot) > 0) { ? ? ? ? ?$origin_href = tep_href_link($navigation->snapshot['page'], tep_array_to_string($navigation->snapshot['get'], array(tep_session_name())), $navigation->snapshot['mode']); ? ? ? ? ?$navigation->clear_snapshot(); ? ? ? ? ?tep_redirect($origin_href); ? ? ? ?} else { ? ? ? ? ?tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT)); ? ? ? ?} ? ? ?} ? ?} ?} and change it to this: // restore cart contents ? ? ? ?$cart->restore_contents(); ? ? ? ?if (sizeof($navigation->snapshot) > 0) { ? ? ? ? ?$origin_href = tep_href_link($navigation->snapshot['page'], tep_array_to_string($navigation->snapshot['get'], array(tep_session_name())), $navigation->snapshot['mode']); ? ? ? ? ?$navigation->clear_snapshot(); ? ? ? ? ?tep_redirect($origin_href); ? ? ? ?} else { ? ? ? ? ?tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_BB_LOGGED_IN)); ? ? ? ?} ? ? ?} ? ?} ?} change this: <!-- body_text //--> ? ?<td width="100%" valign="top"><?php echo tep_draw_form('login', tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGIN, 'action=process', 'SSL')); ?><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> ? ? ?<tr> to this: <!-- body_text //--> ? ?<td width="100%" valign="top"><?php echo tep_draw_form('login', tep_href_link(FILENAME_LOGIN_BB, 'action=process', 'SSL')); ?><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> ? ? ?<tr> 3) add to catalog/includes/filenames.php: ?define('FILENAME_LOGIN_BB', 'login_bb.php'); ?define('FILENAME_BB_LOGGED_IN', 'bb_logged_in.php'); it doesn't really matter where you add it, but I put it right under ?define('FILENAME_LOGIN_BB', 'login.php'); for code cleanliness purposes. You may have realized that due to some redirection issues, the forums may all be in https until you click an HTTP link. The problem is that you can't send an HTTP redirect command from https (login page) to http (regular pages) without the browser popping up a warning. So, the login page redirects you to from https (login page) to https (forums), and unless you click on an explicit http link (like somewhere in the catalog) then the entire forum area will be https. Sure, you can configure the browser not to pop the warning, but your customers are not each going to do that just for your website. So, I added another page (as you may have noticed in the code above), catalog/bb_logged_in.php, just to have the users click an HTTP link to "continue" to the forums, so that the forum links would not all be https. You probably don't want all the overhead of an entirely https forum. The code for that page is as follows: <?php /* ?$Id: privacy.php,v 1.22 2003/06/05 23:26:23 hpdl Exp $ ?osCommerce, Open Source E-Commerce Solutions ?http://www.oscommerce.com ?Copyright (c) 2003 osCommerce ?Released under the GNU General Public License */ ?require('includes/application_top.php'); ?require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language .

I think that's it! -jared <{POST_SNAPBACK}> [/code]

    Hello, Can someone please tell me what, if any, differences there are to this contribution download of "Part 1," and "Part 2"? I assumed I needed to download both packages, but looking at the files, I see everything the same...? Many thanks.
  7. The 2 separate zip files for the contribution...Are there any differences in them? At first glance, part 1 looks the same as part 2...I dont want to run any errors by re-doing work..
  8. Hello all, I am now to the point where I would like to integrate a Forum, Bulletin Board, Message Board - whatever you'd like to call it (just not my little guestbook) onto my site. My only options are for the "open-source" or "free" systems, such as phpbb...And I have heard great things about that particular system...However, when I read through the Contributions Support forum - I see a LOT of error and problem threads... I even went over to phpbb website and looked through their forums for the same type of thread, and unfortunately see the same thing... Is there anyone out there who has been able to successfully integrate an open-source/free system into their osc-site? If so, please help to point me in the right direction. Many thanks.

    I think you need to re-read my post. My install is fine and most everything works. The problem you were having with the Cart Contents thing - I do not have... My issues are very different, as stated above. Thanks however.

    Hello All, I got past the original error I was having - it was an idiotic oversight...I had not even uploaded a file..lol But now I guess I do have some legit problems I need help with. 1) I can not get Images to work at all. I have tried to "upload" one thru admin feature. The name of the image shows up in the db, but nothing shows up on the actual page when viewing. So then I went in and created a new event, and this time put in an absolute path to an image, including http:...and still get the same... 2) I don't have "manufacturers" for my site. All products are books, videos, etc. In the Admin tool, for new event, I select one of my categories of products to link to the event. The page re-loads. Sometimes products are loaded into the drop-down of products (but always listing each product like 5 times...) or I get the next bit of code to show up <!--- categ... and then thats it. Either way, when I do select a product that has loaded, it doesnt show up in the page view... 3) In Admin, clicking on Edit an event...only some of the page loads, and never shows insert, update, etc.... 4) I have also been toying with the code, etc. to produce on the page + admin tool + db, Start Time / End Time type of thing...It shows up properly in the admin tool, but not on the page...It may be the db field settings..I will toy with that a bit and let you know if I still come up empty. Please, if anyone has any advice, tips, solutions, answers or questions about the above....Let me know! :) Thanks.

    I have seen a lot of posts on this contrib - and a lot of the ones about split page results was obvious to me - as I noticed it when uploading. Most likely you already have a page called split page results and it does the function this page is trying to also do - so there is no need to upload that page for the calendar at all. However, my problem is with the Manager in the Admin. My calendar works fine and looks okay on the site. However, when I click on Events Manager in the Admin area, i get a 500 Error. "Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log." Anyone know about this?

    Yay! I figured out why no one would respond and also fixed the problem....No one would have been able to figure it out, cuz the code was fine...It was actually my screw up in the mysql table itself...I had set the "description" as the "value"...LOL...working now...

    Hello All. Could someone - PLEASE just take a stab at helping me with this Cross-Sell error I am getting? Many, many thanks.

    Hi folks, It's me again. I really hope you have some luck with that articles search feature. Do let us know when u get it working, as I think we would all love to have it - especially for those of us who are really using the articles for articles, if you know what I mean. Also, if someone could look into that sql error I am having that I posted just previously, I surely would appreciate it. It's regarding the cross sell feature. Having difficulty with it. Sure, I could just put descriptive links in the article itself, but I think the cross-selling box, etc. is much better (actually I'd probably want to do both).
