  1. I'm oooh so excited to see this module option and got all the steps taken care of.  However it's still not showing up i my 'module' list.

    Version Checker pixel_trans.gif

    Installed Version: osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.3.4


    PHP Version 5.4.45


    After I uploaded the code, made the change in template_bottom "Install Module (43)" didnt change.  it was '43' before, and remained the same.  It's not in the list either.

  2. I added the banners to promote specific products in my catalog recently.


    I find however, that the banners get cut off, either cut at the bottom, or the side.


    250x300 and 728x90 banners.



    Has anyone managed to modify this module to allow side by side banners in one 'box' ?

  3. Good Morning,


    i have been installing and testing this Modular Front Page..


    i cant see to get banner rotate to working.


    i have spent the last 1hr and half looking tough 56 pages.


    and i cant find a solution why the images are not loading...



    this is what i have done


    Check to see if all the files including the js files are in the correct location.

    check the settings in admin

    used banner manager and tryed to upload a picture (Banner)

    and still northing


    so i right click on my website just to see if the java script is loading and YES it is.


    it seems to me it cant find the image DIR

    I am not sure if  you ever got this fixed.. But I just went through something like this.


    I checked through all the settings you did.


    I then realized, the banner ad(s) where turned OFF.. under 'tools -> Banner Manager'

  4. Ok, so I got the package working, and looking through it, I am trying to figure out where, I would make some nescessary changs for my chosen main page layout,


    I prefer a smaller listing of specials and featured items to be side by side (2x2 & 2x2), with new product being 4x3.


    Keep in mind it been a long time since I played with osC and Im having trouble discerning where in this package I make changes so the front page module keeps the original look with the boxes in the central area. I see there are a host of css file under a couple directories, its just not overly clear through the greping I HAVE done tryng to find the various classes and ids that seem to be being used.


    Now its possible Im missing something in how stylesheets are implimented here, and in 2.3.3 over the 2.2MS version, so Im asking for a small bit of guidance here.


    Can anyone help at least guide me to the correct locatoins??





  5. A recent set of errors on my server have prompted me to start a ground up recreation of my osCommerce.


    Instead of 2.2, Im using 2.3.3


    A quick preview of packages that I had installed before or wanted to install before, brought me to this one, a very important part of what my goal was, was to make the front page very modular, new, featured, specialty products, services, etc.


    I noticed in the package I downloaded there where no instructions, no install.txt of the sort, so what I did was just do a straight copy (very stock-fresh install of osC) and I get everything BUT the main data area (header, left column, footer) are there, no product/greeting area.


    Am I missing something? (Its been a long time perhaps 2002 or 2003 since I delved deeply into osC for a setup.)



  6. Ok, so I want to be able to setup a couple websites where it allows better sorting, Im seeing it all over the place, and I have combed through the contributions, not seeing anything that really answers to the description of what Im looking for.


    We've all seen the websites I think...


    You get to choose the manufacturer, or the product class, or the product class size, speed, etc.


    Want a CPU? choose Intel, AMD, or another, which then gives you the options of a i3/i5/i7 etc etc

    Want a Hard Drive? Choose Seagate or another and get it suddenly broken down into size, speed, formfactor, SATA version vs PATA, et al et al.

    Want a laptop? now you choose between manufacturers, cpu maker, hard drive, cpu speed and core, screen size etc etc...


    Is there a plugin/contribution that exists already, that can be dropped into osCommerce that would help me do this fairly simply? And would I have to modify my bulk import tool? ( I already suspect that to be a yes.. )





  7. I currently have UseMyBank.com module setup. Does anyone know about the usemycard services, like ukash and 3v Visa? Maybe I dont know exactly how they work, gonna look more into it however has anyone here checked them out and either written them off, or use another solution to utilize them?





  8. cool, that should help a bit.


    The idea is to have a setup of









    or something similar, with it going right across... maybe a price kinda like the 'other' listing pages




    .. going in.. dont see me in 2 hours call 911 ;)

  9. I finally got this to work in 2.3.1.


    I have a question tho and it might seem 'lame' BUT... seeing as I really only used 2.2 before this, what I want to do, is edit the New Products list on the main page, to be LONG wide listings, instead of a 3x3 box.


    Even just a list of files would help, Im looking but its just not 'clicking' .. *passes out the sledgehammer to drive it home* *grins*



  10. I have this setup on my osc 2.3.1 test site, however.. the problem I have is when I input the 'username' for the facebook page, it directs the user to my personal username, and not the actual page.


    Pages can have usernames, I have this setup






    it takes it to my.name, I want it to go to my.company


    Any thoughts?

  11. (B) FIND:



    <td width="10"><?php echo tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '10', '1'); ?></td>

    <td align="right"><?php echo tep_image_submit('button_login.gif', IMAGE_BUTTON_LOGIN); ?></td>

    <td width="10"><?php echo tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '10', '1'); ?></td>




    These lines dont exist in oscommerce 2.3.1 version of login.php ?? There are major changes I think, that require a reword of the files.

  12. So it mine, however when I add the following..


    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php .php4


    I get this


    Server Requirement Error: register_globals is disabled in your PHP configuration. This can be enabled in your php.ini configuration file or in the .htaccess file in your catalog directory


    From there I go to enabled register_globals as suggested by a number of websites.. I try this


    php_value register_globals 1

    in the .htaccess file also... it then claims I have to many redirects and does a error 500


    This webpage has a redirect loop.


    The webpage at http://www.rainbowcomputers.ca/catalog/e500.php has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.


    Here are some suggestions:

    Reload this web page later.

    Learn more about this problem.

    More information on this error

    Below is the original error message


    Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS): There were too many redirects.


    Can anyone lend any suggestions to me?

  13. FUDGE! wrong file got uploaded!


    IN login.php








    echo "<script type='text/javascript'>document.location.href = '".$origin_href."';</script>";


    In your includes/classes folder you should have the facebook.php file

    In your root (store) folder you should have fbconnect.php and xd_receiver.htm


    Those are all of the files you need.


    This works on vanilla install.


    There is no base_url in the new fbconnect.php file.


    In the facebook app you put your site url (mydomain.com)


    EDIT: The new instructions are uploaded


    I still get the same errors...


    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '{' in /htdocs/catalog/login-fb2.php on line 26


    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_NEW in /htdocs/catalog/includes/classes/facebook.php on line 4


    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '{' in /htdocs/catalog/create_account-fb2.php on line 26


    I followed all the instructions, modified the database, and I still get the same responses, again it seems to be erroring out on

    In the past I have enabled php5 using htaccess to solve problems like this but when I enable php5, it breaks the catalog overall.


    Any thoughts or ideas?

  14. Using php4, and oscommerce 2.2 (modified) login.php is pretty much one of the files I have not touched for modification.


    I get an error on this line

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '{' in /htdocs/catalog/login-fb.php on line 28

       try  {
           $info           =   $facebook->api($param);


    Line 28 is try {


    If i put the php5 addtypes in the .htaccess, the whole website stops working.



    I do note, that this contrib uses <div> and not tables... which my osc 2.2 seems to be.



    Any ideas?

  15. Not sure if anyone is still active here, but I'd like to add a little.


    I am very interested in adding actually two features for product availability.


    My problem is that I'm not good enough with PHP & MySQL yet to fly solo. blush.gif


    I have the contribution installed to show sold-out products (quantity = 0).


    I also have a Quick Stock Update contribution installed which makes it easy for basic product updates.


    Here's what I was thinking:


    I need to list a product as discontinued when I find out my distributor or manufacturer no longer will be carrying a product and I have limited stock.


    I also need to show a product as Sold for awhile before removing from the inventory.


    What I was thinking is that I would need to add two records (columns) to the products table; discontinued and sold.


    Then add a checkbox(s) on say the admins product info page to allow clicking Discontinued and another for Sold which would write to the database.


    On the product listing and product info pages where the buy now button (edited - show sold-out but de-activated button) have it check besides quantity zero, have it check the other two records (discontinued & sold).


    Would something like this be easy enough to implement?


    If I was gonna try to impliment this from scratch (and I might try it as I hate disableing products) I would look carefully at the 'product_url' entry, where you can list the manufacturer's web link for the product. IE: F150's would be linked to the Ford F150 product page on ford's website. Simply duplicate that for the 'product replaced with' link... and reduce the stock level to 0 as suggested before, this gives you a 'fast' fix for what you want, you can then look at finessing it more so later. You might consider the 'CALL FOR PRICING' add on, and increasing/modifying that to include 'DISCONTINUED'


    As a habit, if there is something I need to do, or want to do, I go looking for a module that does something similar, and then just hack the hell out of it til it does what my initial idea was.. doesnt ALWAYS work.. but ussually gets you far enough along that someone on the board can guide you along with code errors.


    I am currently hacking the hell out of new_products.php and featured_products.php in my shop, to get a 'offlease.php' listing, specific to used & factory refurbished items.


    .. specially useful with payment modules... ;)
