  1. I'm having problems with this contribution -- I thought it could do something, but now I'm afraid maybe it can't. I need a product's attribute to have a price that's based on whether or not another attribute is selected. Is that possible?? Example: Product = Widget, which comes in Small, Medium and Large Each size has three options: Light, Normal and Heavy Small widget $10, Medium widget $15, Large widget $20 Small light is the $10 price, Small normal is $12, Small heavy is $14 Medium light is $15, Medium normal is $17, Medium heavy is $19 Large light is $20, Large normal is $22, Large heavy is $24 Can AJAX Attribute Manager do this? (I though it could, which is why I installed it!) If not, can someone please point me to an AJAX mod that does?? THANK-YOU!!! OZ
  2. Hi... I'm wondering if someone on this thread can help me. Every time I try to test the osCommerce download function, it appends the filename of the download file with ".HTML". When I open the html file, it says this: Warning: mkdir(/home/myusername/public_html/store/pub/.kwhwzujqfmmeqnmjgb) [function.mkdir]: Permission denied in /home/myusername/public_html/store/download.php on line 91 Warning: symlink() [function.symlink]: No such file or directory in /home/myusername/public_html/store/download.php on line 92 Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/myusername/public_html/store/download.php:91) in /home/myusername/public_html/store/includes/functions/general.php on line 29 I really have no idea what this means... it's been years since I tinkered with osCommerce. For what it's worth, in download.php on line 91 it says: mkdir(DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC . $tempdir, 0777); and on line 92 it says: symlink(DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD . $downloads['orders_products_filename'], DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC . $tempdir . '/' . $downloads['orders_products_filename']); and on general.php on line 29 it says: header('Location: ' . $url); Does anyone have any easy ideas?? Please?? Cheers. OZ
  3. Ah. Thanks Mikey. But, um... what if you don't want banners? OZ
  4. Hi... Can anyone answer this? It seems like a pretty basic question, and yet I can't find an answer: How do I create text links for affiliates? In the Admin section, I see: If I click on "Banners", I can upload a Banner which has a link, but none of the other options allows me (the Admin) to upload text links and/or product links. (These are the links that would be accessible to my Affiliates on their affiliate_banners_product.php and affiliate_banners_text.php pages.) In other words: Where do the "text links" come from? How do I put them in? Surely someone (everyone?) has come across this? Please help! Thanks. OZ

  6. Fantastic contribution. Thanks for this, Steve. I haven't read this whole thread, but I'm wondering if there's a way to omit the "State/Province" box for countries that don't have States/Provinces? I'm in Australia, and New Zealand doesn't have any states, so those customers always wonder what to put in the state box (plus, if you copy and paste for invoicing/print-outs, it's got extra junk info in there). Also (and this is off-topic, but refers to the same page we're all looking at), is there an easy way to make the date of birth an optional field? Again, thanks for this contribution Steve. OZ
  7. This is probably a dumb question, but I can't figure it out. How do I create text links for affiliates? In the Admin section, I see: Click on "Banners" and you can upload a Banner which has a link, but none of the other options allows me to upload text links and/or product links. (These are the links that would be accessible to the Affiliate on the affiliate_banners_product.php and affiliate_banners_text.php pages.) Please help. Thanks. OZ
  8. FYI... I've found (and installed) OSC-Affiliate add-on authorized products... and although that allows me to set which products the Affiliate can choose to link to, if the customer buys other products, the system still gives commission for those that aren't allowed. (What kind of contribution is THAT?! Defeats the whole purpose of the thing!) I haven't yet set up Variable Products Commission (spelt "commision" on the contribs), but I might try it today. Just doesn't seem to have an interface to select commissions with. Anyone have any ideas? OZ
  9. I have a question, and can't figure out how to search just this thread on the forum, so please point me to the solution if it's already available. I only want to offer commission on certain products (our own proprietary products, and not the items we re-sell). Is there a way to select which products generate commissions? I notice that when the affiliate builds links, they can choose from all products (even products that are inactive). Is there any way to customise this? Or... alternatively... is there a way to set different commmission levels for different products (e.g., Product A gets a 10% commission, but Product B gets a 20% commission)? Please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks! OZ
  10. Is it possible to attach pricing to the user input, if the user input is numbers? For example, I want a user to submit a written manuscript. I charge $X for manuscripts up to 120 pages. Then I want to charge $1 per page over 120 pages. I've tried to do it with product attributes, where each page increment is $1, but it's very tedious. Would like to allow user to type in actual page count, and get the appropriate cost (e.g., user types in "146" pages, and the shopping cart shows the sum of $X + $26). Can anyone point me to anything (including where on earth I'd start looking to figure out how to do it myself)? Thanks. OZ
  11. It's a bundle. So they ARE two separate products. But together, there's a combo price. But together, it skips the shipping. Any ideas? OZ
  12. Question: Is there something in the coding of osCommerce that prevents a downloadable item from also having a shipping cost? If so... how do I remove that restriction? I've got Add-weights-to-product-attributes-v0.2 installed. I've got Bundled Products installed. I'm selling a bundle that has a hardcopy book and an eBook for immediate download. Problem is, whenever I attach the download to the product, the shipping cost disappears! But I still need to charge shipping on that option. And... in case it helps... even if I just create a new product entirely (without using the bundle features), it still doesn't work. That's why I'm wondering if it's in the osCommerce coding. Please help... THANKS! OZ

  14. Okay. Well... I figured out what was wrong with the bundles not working. A simple line of code was missing. (Be sure to read the instructions carefully... I missed it on the second install of the mod.) However... I'm having a problem with the Bundles mod, relating to downloads... Product A is a hardcopy book Product B is an eBook version The bundle is both! Obviously, Product A has a weight (.2 kg), and therefore a shipping cost, based on the customer's zone. Product B doesn't have a shipping cost. Here's the problem: When I bundle them, the bundle won't recognize the weight from Product A. It won't even list a weight if I give the BUNDLE a weight. It seems to ignore the weight/shipping, because it's a download. But I still need to charge shipping for the hardcopy book. Is this a bug with this mod? Or is there a work-around? ...Anyone? Please help if you can! Thanks! OZ who's desparately hoping someone's out there...?
  15. Maybe I'll try asking my question a different way. When I use the bundle mod, what could be the reasons it doesn't work? ...In other words, where should I look to try and fix this thing? Can anyone point me to the specific code involved? I create a new bundle. I select "yes", and choose the items in the drop-down lists to create the bundle. Update, update. But it doesn't register. Can anyone help me out, and point me to the code where this type of problem would occur? Thanks. OZ
