    Admin Load Time - strange this morning

    Hi Matt, Wish I had copied and pasted the errors I was getting. My error logs are showing things like: Error while sending QUERY packet. PID=929743 And the query was beginning with r.reviews which is interesting, I guess, since I don't use reviews in the website. Maybe that's a red herring, I don't know. All I know is it all went away when the forums came back online. I like to see the Latest News module in Admin, so I'll probably leave those things alone. I was just trying to confirm that my loading issues were, after all, related to this forum being down. Thanks! - Andrea
  2. I am using CE and PHP 7.0 My admin page was taking eternity to load this morning (mysite.com/admin) and when it finally would...there were database errors at the bottom of the screen. MySQL server has gone away. All was there except for the PayPal Live entry which shows my current balance. The public side of my site seemed to be loading fine. So, I come to this forum to discover that it is completely down. For hours. But, the moment it came back up...I had no more problems loading mysite.com/admin No more errors. No more waiting minutes for it to load. Is that a coincidence? How dependent is my site on external links to load and run properly? - Andrea
  3. After playing with it some more...I took the code from line 282 in create_account_process.php : require('includes/languages/' . $language . '/' . 'create_account.php'); And moved it down to above the section at the bottom of that file where the email is being defined, so it looks like this: require('includes/languages/' . $language . '/' . 'create_account.php'); $email_text .= EMAIL_WELCOME . EMAIL_PASS_1 . $password . EMAIL_PASS_2 . EMAIL_TEXT . EMAIL_CONTACT . EMAIL_WARNING; tep_mail($name, $email_address, EMAIL_SUBJECT, $email_text, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS); And now I have a wonderful Welcome email complete with a randomly generated password for the new customer that works! Why did I have to move it though? Like...I fixed it, but...I don't understand why I had to. Just trying to learn! - Andrea
  4. I'm using CE with PHP 7.0 I installed Order Editor first...had to clean up some of the DIR_WS stuff and whatnot, but it works fine. Then I installed Manual Order Maker and had to do some cleanup there, as well, but it works fine, in the respect that I can create a new customer account. It's the Welcome email it generates that is not playing nice. Looks like this: All of those defines are in the admin/includes/languages/english/create_account.php file but the email just will not pick them up. The language file is in the correct location. I changed the original line in admin/create_account_process.php: require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . 'create_account.php'); It now reads: require('includes/languages/' . $language . '/' . 'create_account.php'); But, no luck. The email is supposed to contain a random password for the new customer - and it does - but the email itself is a wreck. Any idea what it might be? Or is this maybe not compatible with my version of osCommerce? - Andrea

    Paypal Standard Payments Failing

    Is this an issue only affecting those who use Phoenix? I'm not having this problem on CE and have been using PayPal Standard for years. - Andrea
  6. @ce7 Yes, but...the issue we're all complaining about is that it does not work on the first page load. We're getting 'no matches' when first loading the website. Only if we click on something...anything at all...and then try to use search will it work. Please PM me with a link to your site. I want to see if it works on my first try after loading your homepage. As for the filter issue you're having...have you assigned the correct number in the module?
  7. @ce7 Well, I just took what you said literally and swapped out the catalog/ext/ files in 1.8 with 1.7 and no change for me. It's still not working on the first page load. Would love to have a link to a site that does have it working. - Andrea
  8. Can you clarify what that means? There are a lot of folders/files under that filepath you referenced. You began with version 1.8.....yes? - Andrea
  9. @ArtcoInc and @Dan Cole It's a shame...this issue of not working on the initial pageload. Once I click around my site, it works perfectly on any and all pages. But, if buyers are going to see 'no matches' on their first try...assuming they're going straight for the search box when they enter the website...that's a killer. Out the door they'll go. It looks so nice and clean, too...I really wish I could use this! Damn! Guess I'll just keep checking the forum from time to time to see if anyone comes up with a remedy...you never know! Thanks, guys! - Andrea
  10. Hi Dan - I installed this very cool contribution yesterday on my test site and I am experiencing the same as you mentioned above. What should I be looking for to troubleshoot the issue? What did it turn out to be in your case? I'm using the latest version of the contrib with CE and lots of other mods to boot. Just don't know where to begin looking for suspects. Thanks for your time! - Andrea
  11. Hello @JcMagpie This is one of the best contributions I have ever installed, been using it for months now. Question: Do I need to upgrade to your latest version or is that something related to Phoenix? I'm using this on CE with no issues. And...your messages inbox is full. 😯

    Generic Infobox

    Hi @Jack_mcs Gosh, I would be the only person to ask a question here! I've been using this contribution for quite some time and my infobox displays perfectly. I like it so much I decided to duplicate the module and create a second infobox. I basically renamed everything in the first module with the number 2 at the end. The new box is working fine, but I'm puzzled as to why the duplicate module will not pick up all of the templates, like the original module does here: You'll see two new templates for dvds also being picked up by the first module. But, the second one...the duplicate module...will only pick up one: Fortunately, I'm able to plug in my own code inside that generic2 template to create what I want, so the new infobox looks just fine, even with only one template at my disposal. I'm just curious as to why it may not be picking up the other templates, like the original module does. If you're busy, don't worry about it. I just can't figure out why this is happening and thought I would ask. Thanks! - Andrea

    HoneyPot Captcha

    Yep. I had not changed the call from verify_contact_us to verify_general in contact_us.php So excited to try the new HP I must have raced past that part. Sorry! - Andrea

    HoneyPot Captcha

    Hello @Jack_mcs I have Honeypot set up to disallow URLs in the Contact Us form, and it seems to work on my end. If I try to send one, I get this: However, I am still getting emails thru Contact Us with urls inserted. The last one was just moments ago, lots of text in another language (Russian?) and it ends with this: Всю статью читайте здесь: http://www.xxxx.blo.com/2019/11/force.html I've edited the URL, so...not valid, but you get the idea. How is that possible? - Andrea

    HoneyPot Captcha

    @Jack_mcs I don't know what you did, but THANK YOU! All works perfectly now, with captcha enabled, in both create account and contact us pages. You're one of the best contributors of all time in this forum - thank you for all of your hard work and for sharing it with the community! - Andrea
