  1. I apologize in advance because I don't exactly know what add-ons I have. :) After the recent USPS changes, retrieving USPS rates and having them displayed and calculated during the checkout process is not a issue. Everything appears to function properly for that aspect. Thankfully. However, what is an issue after the recent USPS changes is the USPS shipping label function in the admin no longer works. The shipping address information is no longer imported/populated into the USPS site to create a label (https://cns.usps.com/go/Secure/LabelInformationAction!input.action). Sometime back, as a result of a previous USPS change, admin modifications where made to a file called usps_ship_label_fix.php, which is the utility used to import the shipping address info into USPS.com in order to create the label. Has anyone else experienced problems with creating USPS shipping labels as a result of the 1-26 USPS changes?
  2. As of today, with the new USPS changes, has anyone been able to successfully import shipping address information to USPS.com in order to create a shipping label? If so, what changes did you make? Thanks.
  3. I'm not sure what jshroff did. However, as a quick fix that works for me, I added the following around line line 970 (just after the MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_DMST_SIG_CONF section) in the USPS.php file: $handlingfactor = 1.05; $postage = $postage * $handlingfactor; It adds 5% to the USPS cost. I only ship via Priority Mail and, therefore, do not have to contend with different handling fees for different shipping types. I would be interested to see how others are treating the handling charge.

    [Contribution] - USPS Methods

    I tried this from post 12 of http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/393466-heads-up-july-28-2013-usps-name-change-for-express-mail/ It works in terms of getting USPS rates. However, as other have reported, it does not include the handling charges. Does anyone have a solution for including the handling that are sent in the USPS shipping module in the admin?

    USPS Rate V4, Intl Rate V2 (official support thread)

    Same for me. The Domestic Handling Charges are not added in.

    USPS Shipping Labels

    The state does not appear in the USPS label form because the form is looking for the two-letter state abbreviation. However, in the case of my site, the full state name is being sent to the USPS label form. To remedy the situation, I modified Wes_SFLL's uspslabelfix.php file as follows: Added: $state_query = tep_db_query("SELECT zone_code FROM " . TABLE_ZONES . " where zone_name = '" . $order->delivery['state'] . "'"); $state_abbreviation = tep_db_fetch_array($state_query); Changed: <input type="hidden" name="form.deliveryState" value= "<?php echo $order->delivery['state'];?>" id="stateTo"> To: <input type="hidden" name="form.deliveryState" value= "<?php echo $state_abbreviation['zone_code'];?>" id="stateTo"> I hope that helps.

    USPS Shipping Labels

    Well, I'm making progress. By including <? include('uspslabelfix.php');?>, the label function now works. However, like the poster above, all of the info is imported into the USPS form except for the state.

    USPS Shipping Labels

    Unfortunately, I'm not getting the fix to work. I uploaded the uspslabelfix.php file to the admin directory. Instead of editing the admin/orders.php file, I edited the admin/includes/filenames.php file and replaced define('FILENAME_ORDERS_USPS_SHIP', 'usps_ship.php'); with define('FILENAME_ORDERS_USPS_SHIP', 'uspsshiplabelfix.php'); Now when I click on the USPS label button from the orders.php page, a new window appears with a "Ship a USPS Package" button and the order ID in the URL. When I click on the button (and after logging into the USPS.com site), no shipping info (name, address, etc) appears in the label form on USPS.com.

    Can't get UPSxml module to work

    It seems that UPS.com is working. However, as a result of the hack, I wonder if the XML rate feed will simply be restored or if the feed will be modified, requiring OSC changes.

    [Contribution] oscThumb

    Since installing oscThumb, it seems that images are very slow to load. Does anyone have any suggestions how I can make the images load faster? Could there be some type of setting I overlooked? Also, in the July 20, 2011 update to the contribution, it states: Does the entire contribution need to be updated or just the two files mentioned? Are there changes to other files than the ones listed? Thanks.

    Updated Security Thread

    I have an htaccess file for the root directory. However, I’m not exactly sure what should be in it. Are there any examples as to what to include in the htaccess for the root? I have installed the htaccess file recommended for the catalog/images directory. It contains the following: # .htaccess to prevent directory listing IndexIgnore * # This is used to restrict access to this folder to anything other than images # Prevents any script files from being accessed from the images folder <FilesMatch "\.(php([0-9]|s)?|s?p?html|cgi|pl|exe)$"> Order Deny,Allow Deny from all </FilesMatch> I have also seen the following recommended for the catalog/images directory: php_flag engine off <Files ~ "\.(php*|s?p?html|cgi|pl|ini)$"> deny from all </Files> Should I include the "php_flag engine off" in the htaccess file for the images directory? I'm confused about the term "pubic folder." Other than the image directory, what directories are considered “public folders?” I understand the need to protect the images directory from hidden executable code. Should the htacces used in the images folder also be used in other "public folders" or do other public folders require a different type of htaccess file? Sorry for showing my ignorance. I just want to get it right. Thank you for your help.
  12. I have read the install instructions. However, I'm a little confused. I have unique header tags for each page but I do not have a catalog/includes/header_tags.php file. I do, however, have catalog/includes/meta_tags.php and catalog/includes/classes/seo.class.php file, which includes references to USE_SEO_HEADER_TAGS. Is these comparable to header_tags.php or am I totally off base? In addition, the last update to this contribution is dated 23 Mar 2010. So, for the catalog/includes/functions/html_output.php code, should the code included in the contribution be used or the code displayed in post #111 of this thread be used (because it is more recent)? Thanks.
  13. [This was originally posted in the wrong forum.] I have Authorize.net Credit Card AIM installed as a payment method. When an order is created, the site sends the customer the standard text version email summarizing the order. A second email is also sent to the customer. The second is an html version email that also summarizes the order. It must be trigger somewhere in the Authorize.net payment contribution because the email contains the Authorize.net transaction ID and it only happens with credit card orders. At first, I thought that it was an Authorize.net developer's setting. However, when I switch it over to production with another account, it still produced the html version emails. Although I'm pretty sure that the setting have to be somewhere in OSC, I cannot find setting the the admin payment module for the email. Since I think that it may be confusing for the customer to receive a text and html version of the order acknowledgement, how do I turn off the html order email that is trigger somewhere by Authorized.net? Thanks.
  14. Thanks for the reply, Jack_mcs. I didn't know if there was something else I needed to do to get the desired redirects. The good news is it looks like I have the contribution installed correctly and functioning properly!
  15. Installed on my site is Ultimate SEO URLs v2.2d contribution.( Unfortunately, I do not know the “sub-version”.) It seems to be working fine. However, I’m not exactly sure what types of re-directing this contribution is supposed to handle and what it does not address. First of all, category and product pages correctly appear as: http://www.domain.com/valid-category-name-c-22.html http://www.domain.com/valid-product-name-p-44.html That’s the first hurdle! When the text portion of a category (or product) URL is altered, such as http://www.domain.com/valid-WRONG -category-name-c-22.html, the URL is correctly redirected (“301 Moved Permanently“) back to the valid URL. That’s the second hurdle! However, when the category or product number in a URL is altered to a nonexistent number, such as http://www.domain.com/valid-category-name-c-2999992.html, the page is redirected (“301 Move Permanently “) to http://www.domain.com/-c-2999992.html, a nonexistent page. The page layout is similar to other pages but merely states “Let’s See What We Have Here” in the center. In the situation of a URL being altered to a nonexistent category (or products) number, shouldn’t a 404 response (not a 301) be displayed? Also, when a product that is marker inactive/inaccessible is attempted to be accessed, the address bar still displays the valid URL, the page content is displayed as “Page Not Found” and a 200 http header response code is returned. Is a 200 code correct for a product/page that is no longer available? Should a 404 code be returned? Thanks.
