  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!!!

  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.

  3. 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:

    Affiliates

    Summary

    Affiliates

    Payment

    Sales

    Clicks

    Banners

    Affiliate News

    Affiliate Newsletter

    Contact

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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:

    Affiliates

    Summary

    Affiliates

    Payment

    Sales

    Clicks

    Banners

    Affiliate News

    Affiliate Newsletter

    Contact

    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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  11. 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!

    who's desparately hoping someone's out there...?


  12. 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.

  13. I've just read this thread to date, and don't see any answer

    to the problem I'm having, so I wonder if anyone might know...

     

    I installed this mod and got it working fine, no errors or anything.

     

    But then I installed another mod called Add Weight To Product Attributes.

     

    Now that new mod is working beautifully, but this Bundle mod

    no longer works. No error messages... it just won't hold anything.

    Creating a bundle is the same as creating any other product.

     

    If I put "yes" in its field, and add products to the bundle, they

    don't show up. And all the bundles that were previous working

    aren't working anymore.

     

    The "Add Weight" mod makes changes to:

    • catalog\admin\includes\languages\english\products_attributes.php
    • catalog\admin\products_attributes.php
    • catalog\includes\classes\shopping_cart.php

    (which you need to do manually by comparing them to the original

    files with a diff program (I got ExamDiff from download.com).)

     

    Anyway, the Bundle mod makes changes to:

    • catalog/admin/categories.php
    • catalog/product_info.php
    • catalog/checkout_process.php
    • catalog/checkout_confirmation.php

    ...so I don't see why one should affect the other.

     

    Any ideas?

     

    Please?
