  1. Hello, can anyone tell me to how to add a field to an already created Attribute Set and have that field appear on all the products that use that set? basically i have a drop down with 4 choices and i want to add a fifth choice. if i go into my admin section, select attribute sets and the click to edit a set i see an option to remove a set element but nothing to add one. can this be done through mysql? if so what do i need to change? thanks
  2. dani, did you ever figure that out? i'm having the same problem, it seems to be only happening to textarea boxes. all the information is appearing in the shopping cart and on the email confirmation BUT in the admin section when you click on orders>edit, invoice or packing slip it is only displaying 32 characters of the information that was entered in the textarea. all the information is in the database but the admin section is only allowing 32 characters to be displayed and i can't find where to set it to allow more characters. in the read me file for this contribution is has this recommendation to limit entered text to 30 characters: BUT i'm not using that code, so i have no idea why the entered text is being limited to 32 characters. can anyone help with this? it is EXTREMELY important that this gets fixed because the store is using paypal ipn for payments and not every customer returns to the site after they make a payment, if the customer doesn't return to the store then a confirmation email is not generated. if a confirmation email is not generated then we have to rely on the info on the orders page in the admin but unfortunately all the info is not being displayed.

    Option Type 1.7 problems.

    i'm having this problem SOME times, but not every time. it's really weird, i'll get an order and every text field is on the email confirmation and invoice but then i'll get an order and all the text is missing. hopefully someone can chime in on this with some help.

    HOw to setup SSL?

    that's probably because you just copied and pasted the code the above poster supplied without entering the path of your domain. don't just put this: define('HTTPS_SERVER', ''); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', ''); define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/'); you actually have to enter the path of you SSL domain, it has to look like this: define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.YOURDOMAINHERE.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.YOURDOMAINHERE.com'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure? or like this (depending if the SSL cert is set up with www. or without the www): define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://YOURDOMAINHERE.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'YOURDOMAINHERE.com'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?

    Option Type v1.71

    did you create this Option Value: ID = 0 (or 1 but i think it has to be the first option value ID #) Option Name = (leave blank) Option Value = TEXT then at the bottom under "Products Attributes" select the product, select the option name and select TEXT as the option value

    Member Approval Help

    it's possible that you uploaded a file and put it in the wrong place. i got a similar error on something else, because i had uploaded the file that was supposed to go in includes>languages>english to the main directory, it had the same file name and i thought it was the right file. check to make sure you didn't put the wrong member.php file that's supposed to go in the admin directory in admin>includes>languages>english. either download the members.php file that's in admin>includes>languages>english and check it or re-upload in

    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    Alex, thanks for helping. after many many hours of banging my head against the wall i figured out what i did. i was thinking about what exactly i was doing right before it stopped working and the only thing i was doing was editing the text on the checkout_success.php page by editing the includes>languages>english>checkout_success.php file. that file on my computer is fine so i just logged into my ftp to download that file to see if there was something wrong with it.... and .... (i feel like an idiot for doing this and not realizing it) instead of uploading the includes>languages>english>checkout_success.php file that i had edited, i had uploaded the checkout_success.php that's in the root directory into the languages folder. so that explains why everything was all wacky. i replaced that file with the correct file that's supposed to be in the languages folder and all is now good. i've been staring at code for the past 6+ hours straight and am working on less then 4 hours of sleep. i need a nap. :D

    i have IPN turned off in the sandbox seller account and in the website payment prefs i have auto return on with a return url. i also have PayPal Account Optional is turned on but i never get the option to pay without an account. should i try replacing the checkout_confirmation.php file? i've tried setting up new accounts in sandbox, new buyer accounts in the store, etc. i can't think of anything else.

    it's a fresh install of the module. i even uninstalled it, removed the files from the server, downloaded the module and installed it again.... still no luck. i even dropped in a fresh un-modded checkout_success.php file. i was testing it out yesterday morning with sandbox and it was working fine, then all of the sudden that error on the checkout_success.php page. nothing else, just that error. i have no idea what's going on.

    Attribute Sets Contribution

    i was looking around for an answer to this but couldn't find anything. i installed attribute sets and all seems to be working fine EXCEPT when i go to apply a set to a product. if i click on the 'AS' button on the 'Categories / Products' page, i can choose which set i want but when i hit the save button i get this error message: 1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ''+',1)' at line 1 insert into products_attributes (products_id, options_id, options_values_id, options_values_price, price_prefix, sort_order) values (32,2,1,,'+',1) [TEP STOP] i also get that error when i click on the 'add AS' button on the product edit page, choose the set and hit the save button. i'm using osCommerce 2.2 MS2 and register_globals is set to "on" and i didn't click on the "Remove Set Element" check box. i can create sets but can't apply them to products.
  18. i installed this contribution on an already existing completely custom/edited oscommerce site and it works great so far (was a pain to install on an already built site but it's working :D) what i wanted to know is if the Option Type Feature contribution will work with this contribution: Attribute Sets http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...h,AttributeSets i have a ton of products and i need to find a way to simplify adding product attributes without having to go product by product. the above contribution groups a bunch of attributes into one set, then all you have to do is apply the set to the product instead of having to apply each attribute to a product. has anyone used Attribute Sets with Option Type Feature? thanks

    Shipping Problems

    you do know that UPS and USPS are two different things right?
  21. I've been testing out this contribution and so far it works great but one question I do have is how to take the product listing out of the 'box'? When the columns are displayed the table is inside of a box which is using the style sheet of 'infobox' which is the same style sheet used on all the other boxes (same border and bg color). I don't want there to be any border or bg color. What do I need to just have the columns displayed in a table without the 'box' attributes. Does that make sense? do i need to remove some code on the product_listing.php page that is telling the column view to be put into a 'box'? thanks
