  1. People have to learn to accept that not even Phoenix is standing still any longer. Oscommerce did that for many years and before forward movement it was considered a laughing stock and dead in the water. With Garys input and the help of those that want to see it advance, everyone is getting a better code base. Addons can now be installed in a few clicks rather than a whole lot of manual code changes. Updating the store code is again very simple, and takes a few minutes. If you want old and outdated use an old and outdated version. Stop thinking what was, and start thinking what could be.

    Vendor Login

    Are there not already addons that allow multiple admin users. I seem to remember that this subject has arisen several times. The only thing that will need fixing is a way to split the payments between accounts without the main site owner being liable for addition personal and business taxes. I can see a potential use for something like this on my site a its hobby re;lated and people love selling what they own, but it is something that is way off in the distant time for now.
  3. Without that money the core code for oscommerce would not be changing. Its a shame that not everyone is behind moving the project forward and are out to spoil what some are working towards. But never mind, I fully understand that some people are like that, and that they, not necessarily you Zahid, hold a grudge as they are excluded from the 'club' and don't want to help improve the core code. That's their choice of course but don't run down and insult those that want to help, and don't undermine the work of those that are working to improve the code by offering free code to those that do support. It will only drive a wedge between everyone and cause a split so that those on this forum will not benefit.
  4. Gary asked Henry to do some coding but after waiting for a long time and taking a lot of abuse from henry in one of his drunken moments, nothing got done, and that was henry's fault and no one else's. Henry talked the talked, said that he could do lots but did nothing. There is a lot more to that story but I wont go into it here. No doubt he will come back here now under yet another username and start the abuse again. As for the boostrapped admin that shetch did, I think it was poorly coded so went no further. if it was good you would think that he or someone else would have continued with the development, but nothing has happened there. There could be an opportunity for someone to restart it again.
  5. Just had a similar problem installing a new copy of I found this thread. I didnt notice the hand stuff when installing which is probably my fault.

    tell a friend

    Tell a Friend got removed from the latest versions of Phoenix. It has always been considered a security risk and when Gary asked, most said they never used it or had it turned off, so it got removed. You may need to look through a Phoenix version before to find the relevant code and add it back into your version. You may also need some form of protection on the form as its a way for people to use as spam and other nasties as Jack says.

    shipping cost values

    I suggested that as the first reply to your question, so why didn't you do it then. You could have saved yourself a lot of trouble.

    if this bundle then that help

    Gary released a products bundle module in one of his latest 28days of code. Could be worth asking him about that.

    shipping cost values

    The money is the stores currency. So euros or GBP it makes no different its the way they are entered that you are interested in. The 0.83 could be cents, euros or pounds. It would be 0.83 of a euro. One Euro will be wrote as 1.0 or even just 1. Again the weight makes no difference as nowhere in your store does it require a specific weight entry. If your shippers charge you in pounds rather in in kilogrammes use pounds. All my shippers use kilogrammes. but you have to figure out and stay consistent with the way you enter the weights throughout your store. Again 1 can be either 1kg or one pound, its what comes after the decimal point that will make the difference.. What have you tied so far. Post how you have entered something in the shipping section to calculate the costs and may be I could see where you are going wrong.

    help what version

    It used to before the community edition. Phoenix now shows the correct version.

    shipping cost values

    Here is how I enter it in my shipping modules. 0.1:0.83,0.25:1.32,0.50:1.72,0.75:2.33,1:3.00,2:4.05, The first 0.1 is 100g so if you want 20g it will need to be 0.02 and 90g will need to be 0.09 the next 0.83 is the cost in GBP that's 83p And so on. The 0.25 is 250g eventually getting to 2 which is 2kg Hopefully that makes sense. You will need to write yours as 0.02:0.91,0.09:1.82, and continue adding the weight and the cost separated by a : I did also change the weight in the database to be something like decimal(5,3) wherever weight is mentioned (mainly product wieght), if its not already that so you get the correct places after the decimal point. 5:3 is five places before the decimal point and three after. I think I seem to remember that in standard osc it may only be 5:2.
  12. I will try using the postcode in the query but I think it may throw some weird results as I know I have some customers who are neighbours. I will let you know how I get on so thanks for the suggestion.
  13. Cheers Zahid that worked a treat. Not as many as I thought there would be. Most are where ustomers have duplicated addresses in their accounts. There are only about 8 that actually have duplicate accounts. Thanks for your help.
  14. Before I upload all my customer data to a new version of Phoenix, I am having a bit of a clear out of old and inactive customers. The inactive customers was easy as there was an addon ( I deleted over 800 customers who have never bought anything going back 5 years). Finding duplicate customers is proving to be a bit harder. Customers sometimes cant get the forgotten password link to do anything so create another account using a different email address, and its these that I want to find. Once found I have the addon to link both accounts together. Does anyone know of an addon or a way to check database entries for the same 1st line of the address. Once I have the customers details I can manually check the rest is the same.
  15. Only a few nights ago I created a list of current modules used on my site that would need updating and this was onre of the ones listed. Many thanks @JcMagpie Zahid. Saved me the bother of even looking at it.
