    Add download filename to admin orders

    @burt @ecartz Thanks for the help but you may as well be speaking with forked tongue. I think its something that will be put on the list of things to do when the new site is uploaded in the next few months. I can then look into this again, so sorry Gary its on the to-do list that may be aiming your way one day.

    Location of this button

    The text for the button is found in includes/langauges/english.php. Search for define('IMAGE_BUTTON_CHECKOUT', 'Checkout'); I changed mine to define('IMAGE_BUTTON_CHECKOUT', 'Secure Checkout')

    Buy Button

    Most addons like this you can increase the number in the box either by using the plus minis buttons or entering the number required into the input box and then click the buy button and that many will be added to the cart.

    [Contribution] Ship In Cart

    I am sure it will be updated, as @raiwa Rainer has said many times when the next fixed release is available. Until then people will have to be patient. its one problems that people have created for themselves in using code that should not really be used in a live environment.

    Where is this text located.

    @Ken_Shea Apart from having a new code base (ish) which is secure and up to date, Phoenix is also really easy to upgrade as long as no core files have been touched and messed with. Everything is modular. Adding some addons is as simple as upload the files to the correct places, go to admin and install and configure. Along with the fact that Phoenix is suitable for smaller devices as its bootstrap based it will keep the great gods at google, and other search engines happy as its mobile friendly and will show the site in mobile searches. Many of my customers use a smaller device and say the site is good, and that's without upgrading to Phoenix. I fully understand about the expense of upgrading from a rather long in the tooth system, I am on an edge version with was bootstrap 3 compatible, which you have probably spent lots of time and money on making all those little changes to make the site suitable for your use. Your biggest problem will be when most hosts turn off PHP versions under 7 (many have stopped supporting these early versions already) as the site will take lots of updating then, and of course things like javascript is constantly being updated. Suppport on these forums is getting less and less for the older versions. Developers just are not wasting time on early versions, and who can blame them, so getting any help may be harder in the future. Your website is the gateway to your business and if you decide to invest in that gateway its entirely up to you. If you are happy with what you have then leave it as is. I also hate it when the fraternity say that you must upgrade, or you should upgrade. Its up to you as only you know your business and customers.

    Abandoned Cart Recovery

    In most countries and especially in the EU, because of the GDPR regulations you could not contact any customers who is not a customer or not agreed to receive mailings from you anyway. It would also be hard to send anything to a non customer without them previously giving you their email address, which requires them to have created an account.

    Problems with colimn_left in administrator

    Lots of HTTP still in the file as others have said.

    Problems with colimn_left in administrator

    Are you 100% sure that you changed all entries of HTTP to HTTPS in the admin/includes/configure file and changed the define('ENABLE_SSL', false); to define('ENABLE_SSL', true); Same should be done in the catalogue folder configure file.

    Sitemap SEO

    Glad to have been some help for a change.

    Sitemap SEO

    @Jack_mcs Jack Thanks for the great addon. Works great on There are a few errors with the boxes control page but I dont use that any way. Only thing I did was to change one line in the admin/includes/languages/english/modules/boxes/sitemap_seo.php file to define('MODULES_ADMIN_MENU_HEADING_SITEMAP_SEO', '<i class="fas fa-sitemap fa-fw mr-1"></i>Sitemap SEO'); which added a sitemap icon next to the text so that made all the admin box titles look the same on the page.
  11. I am sure if you post in the commercial support section linked below someone may be able to help. I am just a mere store owner with the coding skills of a wombat. https://forums.oscommerce.com/forum/79-commercial-support-inquiries/
  12. Its down to you really what you use. Phoenix a stable release and many addons have been coded for that. Any version under that is also safe to use but you will have to check if any updates after that version will need to be done. Easier to go with Anything above that figure should only really be used in a test environment. Whether an addon has been converted to run on this version only you will be able to find that out, as only you know what you use. If any have not been converted you are free to get it updated and if you wanted to, you could release it back to the community but you dont have to its up to you. It will be quicker to pay to get it done rather than wait for others to do it. If you are not already a member join the Phoenix club, become a supporter if you want to get some great code snippets available to improve most sites which is a bonus for giving your paid support. Again up to you whether you feel it will be worthwhile. If you have found a genuine bug and its not been found before, please report it.
  13. @burt Gary thanks for that big long post above. Its about time that these people saw all the work that has been put in by you and a few others to actually keep alive what was an outdated lump of software that had had no serious updating in 3 or 4 years (if not longer), was a security risk. Dont forget that oscommerce marketing still states that there are over 7000 free addons regardless of whether they actually work, or are even well coded. These people seem to forget that without your input they would all be using Opencart or some other software. If paid supporters get additional code to improve their stores, thats what supporting gets them. If they choose not to support they cannot expect to get the additional code, now or in the future. I think you are too generous giving away some of your work in core code updates. Without myself and 62 other people who can actually see a future for the software, this argument would not be happening. I for one am fully appreciative of all the hard work that has had to happen, and that will hopefully continue to happen. Its not just the coding as you say, its the support and the abuse that you have to take. Its just very annoying when a certain small group of people try to spread negativity and lies about what is happening, and still dont see the benefits of what that work is doing and is bringing them. These people must learn to accept that peoples time and effort should be rewarded either fully or partially. I bet they dont offer to work for nearly free. More importantly they should stop all the PMs that are sent, and yes even I receive them from a few, and start actually being positive and start helping move this project forward, and find ways of getting other coders and shop owners interested. I know if I was reading some of the comments in the posts throughout this forum I would stay away. If they feel so strongly about their principles what are they even doing here. Go and find a piece of software that you do like.
  14. I had a big long post to this but saw who replied and just cant be bothered.

    [Contribution] Cross Sell (X-Sell) Admin

    Rainer. Thanks very much. I will take a look. Hopefully it will be suitable. If not it may be made to work, or playing around and thinking way above my pay grade it may be possible to use the back end from one and the front end from another and mix and match them both to get the best of both worlds. Will give me something to do if it ever gets quiet here.

    [Contribution] Cross Sell (X-Sell) Admin

    Many thanks. Is it as easy to use with setting up multiple cross sells and reciprocal multiple cross sells, and can it be made to work with the database from this addon. I have over 2500 products with cross sells and dont really want to have to enter them again.

    Whilst I appreciate that there has been no real development of this for a long time, is anyone working on getting this ready for Phoenix version
  18. Its not free because of only the coders. Its free because a very limited number of store owners and developers, have invested in the project financially so the coders can keep coding. If everyone subscribed to the theory that nothing is for free and contributed, then the project would be far further forward than it is now. Of the hundreds of users on this forum only a small proportion feel the need to keep the project moving forward whilst others sit back, criticise and moan. If they are not happy why are they using this software? We have no idea, but probably because they get something for nothing that earns them money. We all cannot expect coders to invest their time into a project which is freely given away without being able to at least get a meagre sum for their time work and experience. They could be doing fully paid work if they choose. Nobody works for nothing. No its not. Everyone can download the code for free from this site or from Github. What people cant get is what they don't deserve. Non contributors get the basic code base, whilst those that contribute get something back for their contribution. Its those that contribute and get the updated code early that are doing all the testing that is required before a release is made to the core files that are available to download from this site, which everyone can download. It really is that simple. Contribute and get rewarded for doing so. Its not difficult. Some should be thankful that they get what they already get. it could and should change in the future. Change the record and stop whining.
  19. I may adapt this to show on my invoices as at present any order comments just sort of blend in. Something to look into.
  20. There you go. I said there would be another way of doing it.
  21. You need to find the relevant bit of code in the admin/orders.php page and add <mark></mark> after the opening <td> and before the closing </td> if you want the whole bit of text highlighted, or you could try narrowing it down to just the line that you need highlighted. I cant remember if mine is standard or whether its been changed but look for something similar to <td class="smallText">' . nl2br(tep_db_output($orders_history['comments'])) . '&nbsp;</td>' . "\n" . and change it to <td class="smallText"><mark>' . nl2br(tep_db_output($orders_history['comments'])) . '&nbsp;</mark></td>' . "\n" . Hopefully that will give you a bit of an idea where to look in the code, but I expect someone will be along soon to tell you the right way to do it.
  22. Sorry for the long post but no matter what changes I make to the user.css file on my latest version of Phoenix nothing changes. I have refreshed the cache on my hosting account by clicking the button in cpanel. I have refreshed the cache on my browser by using Ctrl +f5 and a few other suggested ways. I wanted to change the h1 tag which is the main page headers on nearly every page in the site from what it is in bootstrap to something different. so entered into the stylesheet. I also what to change the size and colour of other h tags but again nothing changes. .h1 h1 { font-size: 30px; color: #0099ff; } Nothing changed. I have also tried important to it and nothing changed. I have checked that in the hooks-shop-sitewide-styleSheets file and its in there in the right order assuming that the one listed last is selected last. Using the inspect element feature in Firefox the user css code is crossed out which means that something later than the user.css is being used and that is the _typescss is currently controlling the font size and the colour change is not listed anywhere. I have tried removing the user.css file and creating anew one on my hosting account and that does not work either. Am I doing something wrong?

    Is it a secret or are you going to tell how you did it in case others find this thread.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    @raiwa I have the following on that line. 'sort_order' => $GLOBALS[$class]->output[$i]['sort_order']); I have just downloaded your amended latest files and have uploaded that file to the site which does have at least that change in it. This may have been my fault for not updating to the really latest version. I will try some test payments and make sure that all is well.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    @raiwa The sort orders are all zero in the database. The settings in admin are Shipping 2 Sub-Total 1 Tax 3 Total 4 Sorry that took so long I had to get orders out to office, and was not ignoring you. When I updated to the latest version I think I removed the module and reinstalled it again as I uploaded all the files, but I may be wrong.
