    Typical "How to" questions

    I have been using osc 2.3.2 for I guess 15+ years... I have imported the data and foolishly thought there would be some default template that would give a minimal site even if it looked a bit like the old style osc I can't get past the splash screen, so I really can't tell if the product pages got imported correctly
  2. I installed again and de-selected sample data import but still have the splash screen and can't see how to see the top page of the site I only have the one sales channel, but when I click View Site it still give me the list...
  3. The import went ok. I did see that the category images were copied but not the product info images, that would be a nice improvement
  4. Yes I have been looking at that page but it does not give any background just a set of steps: DO THIS... I would prefer not trying it for the first time in my production environment... It would be helpful (for me as well as others) to know that the import process leaves the old DB unchanged Also if moving the db offline (to a test server) what is needed besides the db, maybe the config files (./includes/configurtion.php, includes/local/configuration.php) anything else? I know some of these questions may be answered in the process, but by then I'd hate to be fully committed on a one way street. Tom ps. I will look again to update my signature... I was a core dev about 20 yrs ago...
  5. Also I am running a modified osc 2.3.2 I am not sure if I added any fields to osc tables, there may be some new tables that I would expect would be ignored... Is there a download site that has all the historical official releases? I'd like to do a mysqldiff on the structures to see what I might have done in the past 20 years...
  6. Does the migration create a separate database or attempt to do it in-place? Does it need access to the old source or can I load the new code and import the old database (on a different server)? Tom
  7. Release History is no longer on that page, or any other page I can find...

    HoneyPot Captcha

    Считается, что повышенный уровень глюкозы в крови является главной причиной развития диабета 2-го типа. Однако немецкие ученые доказали: резистентность клеток к инсулину может быть вызвана увеличением концентрации в крови метилглиоксаля (MG) - метаболита глюкозы. Подробнее читайте на сайте _a href=http://dom-lady.ru_dom-lady.ru_/a_ But if I enter that text the form is blocked. I am starting to think that the javascript is not being executed on the server side If the code is assuming it will run on the client side, then it is no wonder the checks are not performed on some spammers Maybe we should just move the checks to PHP code on the form submit action, that could NEVER fail!

    Oh Yes I think we WANT to encourage them to fill it in, so we know the 'client' was not using a web browser. But if we think of AI, the very directive that tells the browser not to display the input may tell the bot also to leave it blank. You have to think like a Bot and look at what the bot sees! Your HTML code It might be interesting to see how many requests it blocks. Tom

    Well, if you think about it from the automated spammer point of view... They don't LOOK at the page, the BOT can READ the HTML see excepts below <script type="text/javascript"> function validateMyForm() { // The field is empty, submit the form. if(!document.getElementById("honeypot").value) { return true; } // the field has a value it's a spam bot else { return false; } } </script> </div> <div style="display:none;"> <label>Keep this field blank</label> <input type="text" name="honeypot" id="honeypot" /> </div>

    I wonder if changing the honeypot input to something email2 or something would encourage spammers to fill it in <input type="text" name="email2" id="honeypot" /> or <input type="text" name="email2" id="altemail" /> tom

    HoneyPot Captcha

    I am running v2.3.2 and added the changes to the contact_us page and it does not seem to reject the form if the honeypot is not empty. If I view source I do have the onsubmit="return validateMyForm();" and <div style="display:none;"> <label>Keep this field blank</label> <input type="text" name="honeypot" value="die bots" id="honeypot" /> </div> (before buttonSet) What could I be missing? I am not getting any errors from apache Tom
