    New Google Sitemap Generator

    Hi, I have a problem with implementing this contrib: I have a 301 redirect for my index.htm in my root directory which points to www.myshop.com/catalog/default.php. So when one uses www.myshop.com it goes to this address. When I now copy those 2 contrib-files to the root directory (public_html in my case) Google can NOT find them. But when I copy them to the catalog-directory Google says that I have to create a new site in webmaster tools which is www.myshop.com/catalog/. When I do this and copy the files to this directory Google says "We can't currently access your home page because of an HTTP error (403)." Any ideas how I can get this working? Thanks. Albert
  2. I found out that RSS Reader 2.0 uses the function html_entity_decode to get the text of the rss feeds. This function does NOT support the character set UTF-8 when you use PHP < 5. So in my case I get my rss feed from a site which uses UTF-8 and I have PHP 4.3.10. So do you agree with me that this is the reason that this rss feed does not display German Umlauts correctly? I ask therefore because I'm only a beginner with all this PHP stuff. And if I'm right what would you suggest I should do? Thanks in advance for your help. Albert
  3. Hello, I've installed the RSS Reader 2.0 contribution but the German Umlauts are not displayed correctly. Is there one who has a solution for this? Or does anyone use RSS News 1.2 and gets the Umlauts displayed correctly? Or is there a contribution which displays them correctly? Thanks in advance for your help. Albert

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    Hi Calvin, you had once a contrib called "Google feeder" and I cannot find it anymore in the contribs. I ask for it because it had releases in 2004 and I have a snap from January 2003. Probably your "Froogle feeder" does not run under this snap, does it? Thanks for your answer. Albert

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    Hello, I have a shop in Germany with the only currency EURO. As I found out in this forum to be able to use Froogle for the USA I have to have EURO AND US-Dollar offered in the currency box, so USA customers can see prices in US-Dollar. Additionally I have to be able to send my products to the USA. The "Google feeder" contri would convert Euros to US-Dollars. Now my questions: . Does "Google feeder" take the exchange rate from "Currencies" in Admin? . I think there is a contri available for calculating the exchange rate with a cron job in Admin, right? . Would it be possible to show customers also Dollar prices, by klicking the Dollar currency box, but they HAVE TO pay in Euros? I ask this because I would not like to get paid in Dollars because when I put Dollars onto my Euro account I'd have to pay exchange fees. . Is "Google feeder" with the tax and currency conversion functions and handling correctly prices above 999 (there was once a bug) also available for my Oscommerce version which is from January 2003? A lot of questions, but I am still in hope that there is someone who can help me. Thanks in advance for your answer. Albert
  8. Hello, after searching through the forum for the groupdiscount contribution postings I still don't know the following: When I use two discount groups and a customer tries to buy a product, how does the program know which discount group it should use for this customer? Do you guys use for example an information on the home page which says something like: "Please call if you are a wholesaler before you buy to arrange special prices". So you get the call, if it's possible try to find out if she/he is really a wholesaler, enter the person's data with the discount rate and call the customer that she/he can buy now with a special rate. Perhaps with this scenario everyone wants to get the wholesale prices; the "normal" customer should not know that there are cheaper prices. Please tell me your special scenario. Thanks in advance. Albert
  9. Hello, I searched the forum, found Linda's advice to search for "shipping" and her nick "Ajeh", but could NOT find her mentioned threads about the possibility to display only the cheapest shipping method. Are there also threads about displaying payment methods depending on country code? Linda or anyone who used it, please help. Thanks in advance. Albert Kastl

    attribute sorter and copier v5.1

    Hello, I found the reason: Once I disabled the display of the attributes in category.php (because after a while it was a very long list and I wouldn't need it there). So today I disabled also the update of the attributes in category.php. Now the options stay after I change the product. But I don't know why it's now ok, because this attribute update should occur only when there is really an update. And I haven't updated any attribute in category.php so far. Albert Kastl

    attribute sorter and copier v5.1

    Hello, @Carl: If you have a snap before 01.12.03, why don't you use the newer version 5.1? It additionally contains the weight feature for attributes. Question to all of you, especially Linda: I use snap 01.12.03 with version 5.1. But when I change one product, e.g. product description, then afterwards the previous attributes of thes product disappear and I have to add the attributes to this product again in admin. Have you ever had this error? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Albert

    New UPS XML Shipping Module available

    Hello Torin, I've downloaded the modul and saw that it only works with 2.2 MS1. Is there any chance that it would work also with 2.2 from 01.12.03? Albert Kastl

    New UPS XML Shipping Module available

    Hello, I have some questions to this contribution: 1. Is it also applicable for UPS Germany, i.e. shop is located in Germany? 2. Does it handle the "outside areas" (areas which are hard to reach and therefore cost additional shipping)? 3. Does it handle dimensional weight (volume weight)? 4. Does it handle additional services (e.g. insurance...)? 5. Is it implemented with the zones module or is it an entire separate modul? Thanks in advance for your answer. Albert Kastl
  14. Hello, since I cannot compress my product pictures too much (they should show very detailled information) my first shop page with all the new month small product pictures takes very long. So here are my questions: Which of the contributions . "Image_Resize 1.0" . "PHP image resample" I should use that only the small images and NOT the big images get loaded when the shop starts? The big image should only be loaded if the customer clicks on the small one. Do the above contributions also work with the contribution "Additional images module"? Thanks in advance for your help. Albert Kastl
  15. Hello, I read in one thread that you can NOT transfer images with easypopulate to the server. You have to use FTP. Is this right? So you have to write the image file name in the image field in easypopulate, transfer the data and use afterwards FTP for the images, right? What if you have a product description longer than 255 characters? Excel 2000 can NOT handle this. Thanks for your answer. Albert Kastl
