  1. Then update it then. If you cant do it, pay someone to and give something back to the community.

    Email queuing system

    Whilst I have not seen what you are doing I have been following this thread with anticipation for anything better than is originally available. It sound like you are getting somewhere Gary. Well done. I would love to see a system where order status update emails could be written specifically for the update status replacing the standard 'your order has been upgraded to' emails. And the same with the 'new customer' or other emails. They are all a bit plain and do nothing for future sales. Like I say, cant wait to see where this leads as it sounds good.
  3. I enter my weights for products as 0.300 for 300g as that's the way the carrier does their weights. It just seemed easier to keep everything the same. I increased the decimal places to four in the database. Easy enough to change.
  4. Why not get rid of the Also Purchased box and use a cross sell mod that will only list the items you allocate. Seems much easier and may create more business. If you remove the product from the also purchased box what happens if someone buys a totally non compatible product for another reason, and you have the same trouble again.

    Email queuing system

    Interesting idea if it could be made to work. I would like to send a pdf invoice say 5 days after the items were posted which could be used to ask for a review or what ever just to extend the sales process and to check to make sure that everything was ok with the order. I bet there are more ideas.
  6. Just contact Gary he will tell you costs.
  7. @zefeena Love your rant. Most of us small businesses are in the same position. I certainly am. Here's what I did to get a development / test sore. First I created a new database and remembered the details that I used from within my hosting cpanel I then created a new folder in my root folder on my current live server. I installed the latest oscommerce version in to this folder which is possible using the standard oscommerce install files and the database details that were just created. I then password protected that complete folder using cpanel from my hosting. That stops the likes of google and other people accessing that folder. I have a host where its possible to setup different php versions on different files so I used php7.2 on this whole folder. I can now sit and play with the latest code. I can add and remove modules and code as I please and not affect my main site. I assume that eventually I wil lhave to update the database with all the products, customers and what ever when the store goes live, but that should be done quickly. If you feel unable to create the folder, database and install oscommerce try asking one of the better coders in this forum. It wont cost you as much as you think and will remove all the possible problems and stress. When the time comes I am sure for a small cost the database details can be transferred also. I did that last time and it was relatively cheap.
  8. Gary @burt Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the work you put into this. It is appreciated my some. I hope you get the support to move things forward as much as you need.
  9. Why dont you use headertags SEO which is supported, updated and maintained by the same person that also does the ultimate url addon. There is also a great support forum for that addon should you need any help. Hundreds use it and have no problems so it may be something for you to consider.
  10. What bit of the code are you actually having problems with. If my memory serves me right there is only a small amount of code to add to the htaccess file. This is the code from the install file # Begin Ultimate SEO V2.2d Options +FollowSymLinks RewriteEngine On # RewriteBase instructions # Change RewriteBase dependent on how your shop is accessed as below. # http://www.mysite.com = RewriteBase / # http://www.mysite.com/catalog/ = RewriteBase /catalog/ # http://www.mysite.com/catalog/shop/ = RewriteBase /catalog/shop/ # Change the following line using the instructions above RewriteBase /YOU HAVE TO CHANGE ME/ RewriteRule ^(.*)-p-(.*).html$ product_info.php?products_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-c-(.*).html$ index.php?cPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-m-(.*).html$ index.php?manufacturers_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-pi-(.*).html$ popup_image.php?pID=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-by-(.*).html$ all-products.php?fl=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-t-(.*).html$ articles.php?tPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-a-(.*).html$ article_info.php?articles_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-au-(.*).html$ articles.php?authors_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-pr-(.*).html$ product_reviews.php?products_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-pri-(.*).html$ product_reviews_info.php?products_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-f-(.*).html$ faqdesk_info.php?faqdesk_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-fc-(.*).html$ faqdesk_index.php?faqPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-fri-(.*).html$ faqdesk_reviews_info.php?faqdesk_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-fra-(.*).html$ faqdesk_reviews_article.php?faqdesk_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-i-(.*).html$ information.php?info_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-links-(.*).html$ links.php?lPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-pm-([0-9]+).html$ info_pages.php?pages_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-n-(.*).html$ newsdesk_info.php?newsdesk_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-nc-(.*).html$ newsdesk_index.php?newsPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-nri-(.*).html$ newsdesk_reviews_info.php?newsdesk_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-nra-(.*).html$ newsdesk_reviews_article.php?newsdesk_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-po-([0-9]+).html$ pollbooth.php?pollid=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} # End Ultimate SEO V2.2d I put this bit of code near the top of the htaccess file after all the marked out oscommerce stuff at the top. I have also removed all the bits that I dont use like the faqdesk and newsdesk stuff but I dont think you have to. Which bit is tripping you up. If its the bit you have to alter you said in another post that your files are in the root folder so you just need to change the line to RewriteBase / Hope this helps.

    Addon to show items that are on order and quantity

    Yes it is. Gary asked me a few questions about my ideas and what I wanted and has coded something. Not tried it yet but will soon.
  12. If you are using bootstrap version have a look in the language files for the page you want to alter. In the latest version of Frozen in the index language file you have // seo if ( ($category_depth == 'top') && (!isset($_GET['manufacturers_id'])) ) { define('META_SEO_TITLE', 'Index Page Title'); define('META_SEO_DESCRIPTION', 'This is the description of your site to be used in the META Description Element'); /* keywords are USELESS unless you are selling into China and want to be listed in Baidu Search Engine */ define('META_SEO_KEYWORDS', 'these, are, the, comma, separated, keywords, used in the META keywords Element'); } Its in lots of other pages, and if you create new pages it is easy to add.

    How to show customers zip code/postcode in orders

    Best 15 minutes of my time making this change. Already it has saved that when entering tracking numbers. Thanks for all the help and advice.

    getting 'easy' csv import to work

    Generaly its accepted that using all caps on a forum is classed as shouting as it is on most forums. Insulting people here will get you no where apart from on a load of blocked lists which means you will get no help from those people. As you seem quite capable you dont need peoples help or advice even when they do not know your skills and you never tell them.
  15. Is there such an addon that will show on the product page that a quantity of the product are on order, and when they should be received. I have done a quick search through the addons area and tried with google but nothing comes up. Does anyone know of such a thing.
