  1. Am I getting something wrong? Well usually. But in this specific case I can't seem to get the admin >> categories >> "add new product" form to place uploaded images in a specific sub dir. :'( Yet I notice in the demo database this is the case . . . Microsoft product images are in a microsoft folder, Matrox in matrox etc. Were they uploaded by hand, then all modified/edited in the db by hand? Or is there a mechanism for ensuring that uploaded pics lob into a certain sub dir instead of all going into the base images dir? Thousands of product shots in one dir makes a hard search job, and slow indexing. Oh, am using ultra pics latest package. Works well.
  2. Sorry about delay in answering - max-execution time is the one
  3. Try extending the php timeout number by using a directory based php.ini file. Or maybe a php value directive in .htaccess (supposed to be undesirable, but seems to work).

    Tons of Free Templates

    remember to run spybot if you've been sucked in to adding links etc. Prbly there's click tracers, key stroke tracers and all sorts on the end of this disgusting little scam. Stay within the community, guys. Learn to program a little, learn to use the bits of templates that are available from your mates wthin osc. It's a jungle out there!

    Sell by Weight/Length

    Loz did you get anywhere with this? I am trying to calculate bespoke furniture on a price per cm basis.
  6. I know I've seen all this before, but can't find it, so forgive . . . it seems as though ultrapics or mopics or one of those used to generate a new images folder subdirectory if you created a new category in admin, and then, when you came to add pictures, bingo there they were. Or am I dreaming? If it wasn't either of these. Which contrib is there that generates an image folder tree to match categories?
  7. Win 2000 and ultrapics help!!! Anyone got any ideas on why the little image buttons in the edit window (ed_image.gif) would display in internet explorer on win XP but not on Windows 2000? Why, in short, the whole edit window is more like it is in mozilla than in IE? If anyone out there is using win2K, pls shout

    Margin Report v2.10

    Sorry if this is cross posted from main category, got confused with new forum layout. Been away a while. Fresh install of 2.2, fresh upload of latest Margin Report. If db managed with phpMyAdmin 2.2.3 no problem. If managed with 2.9.1 following error occurs: 1054 - Unknown column 'p.products_id' in 'on clause' select count(*) as total from products p, products_to_categories p2c, categories c, products_description pd left join specials s on p.products_id = s.products_id where pd.language_id = '1' and p.products_id = pd.products_id and p2c.products_id = p.products_id and c.categories_id = p2c.categories_id Tks Oh. Always was a great contrib. Now may be better.

    Layout and templates

    So to add a bit . . . have we got over using php classes to partially control presentation? That would clean up lots of spaghetti syndrome. I've been tearing my hair out for: dynamic content management and generation by PHP, page structure by generated html from a single, known and accessible point of focus, then style and seed content (textual content, link styles, box headers, captions etc) and any styling at all by css. Further: can we pleese have some guidlelines for contrib developers so all things of this kind go under this file set, all things of that kind go under that file set always, and consistently? I guess what I'm groping for is a stern philosophy of modular development where each part is, as far as possible, independant and discrete from every other part. Ah, yeh idiot! Download an alpha, install it on a unix box and have a play, and stop asking dumb questions, I guess, mmm?
  11. Have we finally discarded html table based layouts for the ver 3 approach?

    HSBC secure-epayment module

    HSBC secure-epayment module

    Ok, here 'tis. First it seems some of the dependency libraries that load with mcrypt and its kin were needed so even though mcrypt wasn't, by installing it and restarting Apache things got a little better, (the sample html page started outputting a hash). But I still couldn't get past the blasted "hacking attempt" response on the site and couldn't get a hash match. So I downloaded the hsbc contrib from downhome consulting, which does use mcrypt algos and it worked straight out of the box, just like it said on the tin. It may be that the hashing routines in v3.0 and V3.1 don't work properly on servers running virtual sites (can't think why and have no time to mess around with the chicken's entrails that comprise our virtuals). But if anyone can't get a result with the hsbc conrib, try this one.

    And finally a little light: traps fr young players number 20067776: just because phpinfo reports every hashing engine known to man as being installed and active, doesn't meant the mcrypt library is in the server's lib directory. CHECK CHECK CHECK!!! Further the subcontinental advice turned out to mean that we were not sending a hash at all, but instead sending the path to 'TestHash-e' where we should have been sending a hash. This is still occuring. Any ideas???

    HSBC secure-epayment module

    More on the above. According to HSBC the hash being received by them from the test page does not match the outgoing url. I assume they are using the url as part of the hashing process? I am seriously puzzled by this statement by a person from the sub continent. Can you enlighten me at all?

    HSBC secure-epayment module

    Thanks, Neil I've settled for that. Now the sample.html file is producing an order hash, but i keep getting an error 12, (store details). So I assume there is a store ID/supplied hash problem? Tks

    HSBC secure-epayment module

    Vger, if you pick up on this, am I right to avoid HSBC's suggestions about putting a LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the init, and therefore, at least on a fedora/redhat system will simply placing the gcc files in /usr/lib suffice, or do we need to path that in the mod's php itself? Then what do we do with the putenv for LD_LIRARY_PATH in the module itself? Just nuke it? Gettin' kinda puzzled here. Tks.

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    Froogle's "hedwig" server is a beast. Lot's of probs uploading from an ftp client. Could be something to do with it. Ask froogle support. They are ok.

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    Is there any code anywhere that would go into the curremcy conversion to update exchange rate at the same time? At present it seems we get the name of the currency changed, but the amount remains the same. So if a GBP store converts to USD, all the currency entries are happily described as USD, but the amount in the price field appears to remain the same. Or am I missing something?
  20. TEXT_PRODUCTS_INVENTORY_COST pops up in the admin>categories/products review window under the thumbnail of the product. Can't find anywhere it's generated and can't find it as a string. Going nuts. What to do? This what we see: leather/2005_1023_075605S.jpg Price: ?19.99 TEXT_PRODUCTS_INVENTORY_COST ?8.00 Quantity: 1 Average Rating: 0.00% Next, although the cost of goods entered in the input box in the product edit input area comes up on the preview window of categories/products, it doesn't show in the report, nor is it in the db. I am using an Ultra pics contrib by the way. Regards

    I've mangled the checkout confirm file as many ways as i can and still get a transaction error when trying to open the hsbc servlet. HSBC tells me it's a mismatch oin the order hash between me and them. Anyone experienced this? Ted

    UK Area Shipping Cost

    Could that be the tare weight setting in admin>config>shipping adding to your weight, therefore cost?. If so set it to 0
  23. For some reason the purchase details from shopping cart (which appear to be complete in the output of all the shoipping cart files) are not being passed to the database after an order is confirmed. The upshot is that the admin>customers>orders>edit screen comes up with Products 0x Model Tax 0% Price (ex) ?0.00 Price (inc) ?0.00 Total (ex) ?0.00 Total (inc) ?0.00 The email to the purchaser reflects this also, and of course, so do invoices, packing slips and all. But then, the next line picks up Total ?17.00 from the db. If I go to the database The price fields, product name fields, and etcetra in the orders table set are blank. but the total fills in ok. Could it be that some name changes have occured to the default db header titles after this, or some other mod were installed? Any ideas? (other than reinstalling everything and feeding the products database sections back in by hand (groan))

    [Contribution] World Zones 1.0

    Same issue, anyone fix it? Further why are we entering default numbers in the php file when the admin interface has a form for this, changes to which appear to make no difference. Further still, if you add a fourth level of zones, nothing shows in admin. Extremely difficult to understand the install readme English. Can someone who knows this program have a go at enhancing its clarity and completeness?

    I've been playing with base google the last few days. Anyone seen any bulk loader scripting like froogle.php?
