  1. I had a quick look at your site and I have to agree with most of the other comments. There is huge whitespace at the bottom of some pages. The seo needs to be sorted on nearly every page. For some reason the index page is narrower that the full width of the page in places. I would also make more of the free shipping box on the front page. There are lots of duplications of bits such as the boxes in the left column. get rid of one or the other of them. Personally I would get rid of the left column and keep everything in the header or footer. On the index page all the drop shadows distract from the products so either lighten them or remove them. Same as the image borders - remove them. On the product pages the model module looks a bit silly and out of place where it is by the buy button. Move it up to under the product title If you could get your Categories drop down listings in the header to look the same as the Brands one that would be even better. I am not too sure about the way the login/create account link works. That flyout thing does look a little weird and the page does look cramped. As Phoenix is modular make use of the easy to change sort order of those modules. My only other advice would be to look and see what your competitors are doing, and try to make your site stand out from those. Look at your site from your customers point of view and make sure it offers what they want. So if you have product data sheets, or supplier pdf data about the products add them to the product. All that is needed is a link or an image or something that is a clickable link. Once all that is done add in all your company legal stuff such as all the policies you must need, and good luck. Dont be disheartened by all the negative comments as most of them are an easy fix.

    Store Search Bar (BS)

    Apart from the parse error in admin - modules once the module has been installed the next largest error is the following I suppose lots of that is all about files in the new folder structure on but I may be wrong.

    Your question may be better asked in this thread

    @raiwa I can confirm that this was nothing to do with your app. Please accept my apologies for wasting your time. I found another thread on the forum about a similar error in the /home/#####/public_html/#####/includes/system/versioned/, made the recommended change and still no better. Then started turning off all sorts of modules and believe it or not it was related to an older bank transfer module that had been working with no errors, and for some reason when moving this code around using the sort orders brought the error to the surface. All sorted now.

    No additional shipping or payment modules are turned on. I am looking into this as I have the feeling that to get something else to work I was advised to change one of the files in the versioned folder and I need to see what one it was. I have lots of notes somewhere so will have to go through those.

    Just checked and it appears to be for both logged in and logged out customers.

    @raiwa Many thanks for updating this module. Its really appreciated as its a great addon and saves many abandoned carts. Trying to install this on a store that was not updated from an earlier version I do have a bit of a problem though which has only come to light after installing this module. I am trying to get the shipping estimator module to show before the checkout button. When I adjust the sort order to allow this to happen I get the following error on the shopping cart page. When the module shows after the checkout button it all works fine. The settings in admin are set as they are installed with no changes. I did also notice another error when I removed the checkout button but could not replicate it again unfortunately. Is this something funny with my setup. I have tried removing and re adding the checkout button module and the error is still there. If the module is again moved to after the checkout button all works fine.

    switching the site to https

    They are both in the store front and admin includes folders. So its admin/inckudes/configure and includes/configure

    switching the site to https

    @Zero222 Please read what ecartz posted. He said change all http entries to https in both of the configure files. You may also want to add something into your htaccess files so all customer and search engine links transfer across to SSL as well. Adding something like this should work, but replace the #### for your site url. # Rewrite code for non www to www and from HTTP to https RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off [OR] RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.####.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    Hook System

    Is there not a recaptcha addon that is compatible with your versions of oscommerce. If not why not update to a better version like Phoenix.
  11. It's a bit of a job but you need to create a new product then create and add as many attributes as you want to that product. Its acknowledged that the attributes system needs improving so until it's worked on it remains a lot of work to set up. The actual download should be a zipped folder that contains a pdf.
  12. Can you not just use the product downloads and attributes system so they can print a PDF of what ever the restaurant want them to bring in.
  13. When I only used PayPal Standard I found several customers would not continue with the order. I installed a recover carts addon which helped, but only if you get the email that is sent right. Many customers do ignore the emails so I presume only placed items in their cart to find out the price. You can also see who starts the process as Paypal should have a pending transaction status which as far as I believe shows when someone has actually gone to the Paypal site and then not completed. That status also shows for any refused payment as well which you can find in your PayPal account. I find from feedback that most people stop in the Paypal process on the first page they are taken to on the Paypal site as the link to pay as a guest is not as large as the create a Paypal account area. I added a second card payment method using Stripe, and a bank transfer payment method and the number of incomplete orders did drop, but there are still several a month with both card processors, and of those only a few will respond to the recover carts email. If you have done everything else to prevent cart abandonment on your site, then Paypal is probably the stumbling block. There is lots of info online about cart abandonment and how to reduce it happening.
  14. That language define can be found in includes/languages/english/modules/content/index/cm_i_title.php. You need to remember that Phoenix has gone modular, and nearly every area on a page is controlled by a module. On the index page alone there are several, and the same with the products page and shopping cart and a few other pages. Most language definitions are somewhere in the language folder but may take some finding. Paypal I think is the only ones that aren't. As to your other error. if you have not already joined the Phoenix club here is a comment that was given there when someone had a similar error. In the file with the error they changed line 22 to if (array_key_exists('customer', $GLOBALS) && $GLOBALS['customer'] instanceof customer) { and the error seemed to go away. (Note that that code is not in the very latest version.)

    @raiwa Just tried this on and got a few errors.. I got past the first one by changing line 158 from require('includes/classes/shipping.php'); to but all the errors after that totally stumped me. All about address formats that may have changed with an update somewhere. Sorry couldnt be much help after that.
