Hello Was looking for a header tag to use for manufacturers code, im using the v_products_model tag for the distributors code , but is their one for the manufacturers code. the reason i use the v_products_model tag is its easier to find the product on their site, or is their a header tag to use for the distributor instead. any help appreciated , titch

  9. Hello Keress, this is the one i use , not sure if it is the same, works ok for me but their may be better!! dont know http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...,wysiwyg+editor if you have a new site that hasnt been changed , install is pretty good, if your site has been changed, a bit more work. backup all files before your change them. some times good to find a support thread first before installing a contrib , to see what the problems may be. derek
  10. hello, i need a small bit of info. i was setting up my site and got https going and also installed Pwa (PURCHASE WITHOUT ACCOUNT) contrib, it seems to be their. Now since im only accepting direct credit payment into my bank account, and im having trouble with the https ( im running shared ssl on i powerweb, seems to be a problem) is it easier to disable https, and if so how, iv only found threads on how to get it going. im getting trouble getting to the end of checkout in https so i presume since no paypal or merchant account i dont really need it. if i setup paypal, or is their better ones will i then have to enable https again. thanxs (beating my head against a brick wall at the moment.) derek

  13. hi all have installed the PWA contribution, which is supposed to make it so that people don't have to create an account when buying... in PWA, there's a redirect.php file, which takes the user off to order_info.php but we don't have order_info.php anywhere in the site! we have the latest default install of oscommerce. is there some extra contribution to install as well?? cheers B)
  14. Hello just a small querrie, i have been doing my store and playing with the upload files, getting my headings right ECT! Now im nearlly getting it right, but should i start fresh and get rid of all the extra settings on my site and start afresh as to get all the categories in the right order and correct way that i want or is it better to just leave them in their and just move them about till i get what i want. so as i can get all pic's and info in the right place. i havnt got to much on their now so all im losing is descriptions for products but i do have files for those any way. also is their a correct way to close the admin or logout of the store as i see no logout, or does this not matter. thanxs titch

    hello have easypopulate installed ( by a friend) but have a bit of trouble getting this one. i am setting up a computer store, does anybody have a small file(product file) that i could view( small piece) just to have a better understanding of what to try and do. i have viewed the test file but ( &^$$ bugger me , hard to get my head around that straight away.) does the file have to be txt or can it be xls or csv. Also i have only installed the contributions :back button in buy now page :osCommerce MS2 HTML WYSIWYG Editor, Product Desc, Email +_files i have manually installed some products and categories but this takes to long (2000+ products and categories) so wish to try EP. Also do you need to remove all former products and categories before using this , and is it advisable to have pictures in specific folders when uploading . thanxs for the help but obviously not a techie, but find it easier to learn by getting it going with help then breaking it down. i have viewed the test file but ( &^$$ bugger me , hard to get my head around that straight away. thanxs titch

  22. Unfortunately im having trouble understanding what is required to do this install, i know the help files are their but about understanding what is needed or being explained to be done, sorry but my knowledge on this stuff is zero. im lost as i dont understand what to do here 4. Make sure that you have a directory called catalog/temp, and that it's permissions are set to allow writes to that directory (while you're in the catalog directory, execute "chmod 777 temp"). If you have changed the directory structure of your OSC install (i.e. you don't have /catalog/temp/ in your document root anymore), then you'll need to go into easypopulate.php and change the setting of "$tempdir". i did not have temp file so added 1 to catalog my store is in catalog/admin/index.php do i change the temp and temp2 file above to tempdir".=catalog/admin. Also regarding the froogle does your site need to be on line when setting the www.yourdomain address and when setting the froogle account do i leave out the www till it is on line and can it be tested just of the database. sorry for the long message, but i prefer to install this myself , but are always willing to ask for help as required (people in this forum are always great for help, and i do appreciate it) so as to learn more about my site, but i need this EP up and running as to be able to access a business grant from my government ( new zealand) for further equipment. if i get in trouble is their somebody that could install for me if i get desperate, as time is running out to access grant. thanxs derek. also is this the best place to ask for help(hopefully not as long winded as this one) the only contrib i have installed is wysiwyg editor.
  23. hello in the process of installing easypopulate and was looking at this part below, i put a temp folder in catalog and chmod 777 was this the wrong thing to do. Make sure that you have a directory called catalog/temp, and that it's permissions are set to allow writes to that directory (while you're in the catalog directory, execute "chmod 777 temp"). If you have changed the directory structure of your OSC install (i.e. you don't have /catalog/temp/ in your document root anymore), then you'll need to go into easypopulate.php and change the setting of "$tempdir". my root im sure is catalog/admin/index.php does this mean i have to change this easypopulate.php file , went to have a look at it but seem to get this error WinSock 2.0 -- OpenSSL 0.9.7d 17 Mar 2004 [R] Unable to resolve host: I"C [R] Delaying for 120 seconds before reconnect attempt #1 any help would be appreciated
