    Fake accounts

    Just installed the above. Will see what happens now. Hopefully they will loose interest soon.

    Fake accounts

    Over last few days I have started getting these types of new accounts at a rate of 10-20 a day,q and attempts to send emails. Haven't had any for a long time so it's being a real PITA. I have a maths question on the contact us form but nothing else. I have added a honey pot thing but that hasn't stopped anything just let's me know it's happening. This weekend I am going to find a recapthcha addon and see if that stops them.
  3. Thanks for that. I will update the files when I get a few minutes.
  4. This sort of got cobbled together with the help of a few people. I believe that it gave Gary the idea for the PI modules that he did as he was talking about doing something during our discussions, but I was aware that some may not be supporters and have access to those files. I have since played more with my test site and have further split some of the widths modules to allow for greater layouts, but it was such an easy change I am sure that others could do the same. What is the benefit of adding "row is product". If its worth it I could add to the current files.
  5. I have taken agreeing to terms and conditions away from the Create Account page and added it to the shopping checkout process. Makes more sense there. Even though many would not read them, they are there if they need to see them. They would not know if they have been changed from one order to the next, but they agree them. As long as I keep a copy of the terms and conditions which are dated when ever they are changed to comply with this EU legislation. I also send newsletters when changes are made but that does only get to those that subscribe to newsletters.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    I am having exactly the same trouble on my test site, my live site and a phoenix test site. The languages are not shown and only the defines are showing as if the language files are not found, on only the stripe payment module admin edit page. The payment module does seem to work fine with no errors on all the sites. Today I am going to try to restore the working files from version 10 and see if they work. If they do I will compare the files for the stripe_sca files and leave well alone.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Thanks for that. That may stop the emails arriving that they dont understand a simple form. Thats the trouble with having a client based that are of the older generation. Now to try again with the text defines in admin area.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Right. No errors in the error log files related to missing text defines or files. There were some about a 50 metatag restriction which is why I was updating the code as this problem had apparently been sorted. All file permissions seem to be the same as other payment modules. Just uninstalled the payment module. Cleared all system and computer cache. Removed all the files from my hosts and replaced them with the latest offerings from the addon area (version 12). All files were copied to the correct locations and uploaded to my hosts. When I went to install the modules all the text defines are missing still. Went and removed all the files again from my hosts and uploaded all the old module files and everything works fine. As I cant waste any more time on this at the present I am leaving the old payment module as active because its working. When I get time i will look into this further and start installing this from the beginning and see where it all goes wrong. I cant even find where the language files are referenced.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    I am having a bit of bother with the latest version of this great addon. I removed all the old files from the server and uploaded version 12 to the system and went to install and all the language defines do not seem to be working. In the admin area where the settings are changed every title and bit of text is as if the defines are not present. I have checked and double checked that the files are in the right place including uninstalling all files and uploading them again. Has anyone had the same problem and if so what did you do to get them to show correctly. Before I uninstalled all the files version 10 was working fine. I should have left it all alone.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Is there any way to get column titles on the checkout form where the card details need to be added. I have had a couple of customers get confussed about where and how to enter the required information. On looking at this the long card number is sort of easy it's the expiry date and the last 3 digits that cause confusion. If someone can tell me where the form is created I may be able to do something.

    captcha or recaptcha

    @zpupster I use Siteground to. I don't use any recaptcha apart from a question code that I found somewhere on the forum I think, but it could have been years ago.

    captcha or recaptcha

    I recently had this problem with outgoing welcome emails. All other emails generated by the store were sending fine. They were being reported as spam by the outgoing server filter. The emails were being prevented from being sent by my hosts 'spam expert' system. When I contacted the hosts I was told to read the CAN-SPAM regulations. I also needed to addd an unsubscribe link to every email being sent out by the store apparently, and also some kind of recaptcha. When I pointed out that the emails were not marketing emails but transactional emails and that they were part of the sales process and could not be unsubscribed from, and they were not part of the regulations my hosts went quiet on me and said they would look into it. In the end I changed the email title line from the original 'Welcome to', to something different and all seems to be working again, although I expect this is something to do with the hosts doing something as they were in the wrong but would not admit it. It could be worth changing the text of the email just to see.
  14. @JcMagpie Thanks. @puggybelle Thanks. @milerwan Thanks. @Mikepo Thanks. @Omar_one Thanks. This is what this thread is here for. Its good to see that others have the same sort of thought processes that I do. I fully understand about the time and investment in the old sites we all have, and its hard to give up something that is working fine if it can be altered slightly to improve it. Do we all need to upgrade I am not sure. I use an upgrade as a time to install the latest version of addons if there is one, and a time for a bit of housekeeping. Change the look, add a few more bits and its ready to last a few more years. What I dont want to do is to see oscommerce die. Its a great bit of software that in many ways is better and easier to use than many of the other offerings.
  15. I will answer my own question first. This is my thoughts on why I wan to upgrade my store. I have Phoenix as a test site that I am working on when time and finances allows. Over the years I have adapted and altered a version of Edge that is currently my live site. My current live site runs happily on php5.6 and apart from the odd blip every now and again it works faultlessly and does what it is supposed to do. It has many addons added, and some are currently not available to work on Phoenix, but I am looking for others. My biggest worry when finally updating the site is that the database update may have to carried out by someone that knows more than I do and that may cost a few pounds. My reasons for wanting to upgrade the current site is because the software used to run the site have moved on. PHP versions are faster and more secure. Some are not going to be supported for much longer. Bootstrap4 is so much better than BS3 and it is easier to make small changes to the site. Phoenix gives me more options to make the site as I want it. Its modular so its really easy to add features with only one click and change a few settings. There is no cut and paste coding for now. I am also a monthly paid up supporter of Phoenix because I want to see the project move forward and as a business I understand that code time costs money and it should not be expected that someone gives their time for free so I can earn money. Some of my profits should go back to help the coders improve what I am using for free. In the few months since Phoenix was released so much has been done and lots of new features are available. If I had a bricks and mortar store I would need to pay to keep the structure of the store clean, tidy and updated and its the same with my website. It needs to be up to date and it needs to make the whole shopping experience good for my customers.

    [Addon] Product Sort Within Category

    There is already sort order on the categories as standard unless I am mistaken.

    [Addon] Product Sort Within Category

    Sort of tried that but bits have changed and I was unsure on how to modify the old code to match the new. Now I have said that I hope I was looking in the right place.

    [Addon] Product Sort Within Category

    Thanks for that Gary, I will take a look later. I am really after a custom sort order as over the years I have added more and more products which are the same or similar to other products already stocked and listed and its nice to get them all grouped together in order within the category. Or am I missing something obvious. Its been a long day.

    user.css

    user.css is only used to change things that the store owner wants changed, and that may not bee what you want. If you are using Chrome or Firefox as a browser, they both have developer tools that you can use to find elements on a website or even view source code. Search in your browsers addons area to see what they do. I searched for bootstrap 4 themes and found sever for my Phoenix site and uploaded the whole css into the user css which totally changed the lok of the site. What I plan to do later is to remove the bits that I have not marked as changed to reduce the file size. If you search for css help you will find loads of online reading without the need to go on a course. You can do the same for SEO once you get a site live to save a few bucks. w3schools is good site as the bootstrap one but only use the site for the correct version of bootstrap that you are using.

    [Addon] Product Sort Within Category

    @BrockleyJohn Is there any possibility that this will be updated for Phoenix as its the only product sort order that I can find. I have tried to install it but the difference in code changes is too much for my pay grade to sort. I found similar code in a few files so don't really know what to change. I got all the admin ones changed.

    Additional Orders Info

    Cheers @Jack_mcs changing the suggested code worked a treat. For some reason the other error has gone. May be will have to try turning it off and back on again for other errors. LOL.😁😁

    Customer Orders Tab in Admin Orders (hook)

    Just found this addon and installed it rather than an old outdated one that did something similar. Simple to install and worked straight away. Great Thanks @BrockleyJohn

    Additional Orders Info

    @Jack_mcs Been using this addon for years and find it really helpful. I have just tried to install the latest version of this addon to the latest version of Phoenix running on php7.3. I have uploaded the supplied admin/orders.php file rather than try to cut and paste the code into a standard file as I thought it would be easiest. I get the same error as mentioned above. The actual error I am getting is There is also another error Line 526 is if (sizeof($order->products[$i]['attributes']) > 0) { Any help would be appreciated.
  24. Look in the phoenix announcements thread there has been lots of small updates since its release.

    Time for a Bottom Up Rebuild?

    Every business has startup or running costs and website development for an online business should be included. But if you are just playing at websites then I see your point it can work out expensive. I had a look at opencart and there developers release a free version of a full addon that does not include every feature as a taster. Great idea and one that should be done here, but part of every sale should go back into the pot to help pay for future core code updates and changes.
