    [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 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.
  4. On the 25th May 2018 the updated General Data Protection Regulations comes into force. Well who knew anything about that. It would appear that the EU has or is about to change the way that people collect and store others data. This apparently supersedes the Data Protection Act in the UK. It has also been mentioned that when we leave the EU we will still need to comply with the regulations as the EU has made it worldwide somehow. Has any store owner seen a sensible easy to understand website that explains how this may affect store owners, or like me have you never heard about this until now.

    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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.

    Cosmetic changes to Phoenix Home Page

    Make sure that your user.css file is the last one listed in your view source. Mine was first in the list not last, and there has now been a fix for this so look in the phoenix announcements thread if you are using Phoenix.. Also use the developer tools available with most browsers, I know chrome and firefox have them, to inspect an element to see what is controlling the area or item you want to change.

    PayPal fee changes

    Totally off oscommerce topic but ecommerce related. Who has noticed that Paypal has changed their fee structure. I noticed this earlier today after browsing another forum. In the UK they used to offer a small percentage discount if sales were above certain levels, plus a 20p transaction cost. Well no more discounts, level is set at 2.9% which is less than the usual 3.2% but I was already getting 2.9%, but the transaction fee charge has increased from 20p to 30p per transaction. Be honest - who noticed.

    Time for a Bottom Up Rebuild?

    I have said for a very long time that the core of oscommerce needs to be fit for today's market. It has to offer the features that are needed in today's harsh selling environment. It has to do everything well. Recently I have been looking for other software as a replacement module for the old Stripe payments was not available and was in the hands of Harald, so was never going to done. There are lots of carts out there, some more popular than others, but all offer standard features not available to oscommerce which are needed to run an ecommerce store and generate sales. This has been known but ignored by those in charge for years, and another thread moaning about what should or should not be included will not have any effect. There is a lot of grounds to be made up and without someone to lead a marketing push, which should generate interest from new developers and new users, then I am afraid that the project will just fizzle out. There is nothing stopping people creating modules and submitting them to be considered to be put into core, but they have to be coded first to show what they can do and they have to work. Its wrong to expect one person to do it all as much as its wrong for one person to want to do it all.

    You are right there. There are loads of members very few of which are helpers so it could have been, and should have been kept in the open public forum.

    Time for a Bottom Up Rebuild?

    That's what the Phoenix club is used for although not everyone can join. A lot of ideas have come from discussions there.
  16. @BrockleyJohn What ever you did has sorted it. @burt thanks for releasing the fix so quick. CSS changes now work.

    Time for a Bottom Up Rebuild?

    @valquiria23 we gave to agree to disagree. People cant wait for someone else to do everything. The so called team (Gary) needs all the help he can otherwise development will stop or slow. He cannot be expected to do everything that everyone wants.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    I have just placed a test order and added a comment to the order. That comment shows on the invoice at the top of the comments section. If I knew what I was doing I would look at the PayPal module and see why that only shows the customer order comments and not any of the other stuff it saves. Like I say the old module for Stripe used to do this so nothing lost. I just wondered if it could be removed. Thanks for taking the time to look.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Many thanks @raiwa for the quick response. There are some comments showing where the order comments should be n my invoice. This is the only payment module to show them. The old original module also showed them. I have circled the comments. What I dont have is an image with the standard order comments showing that a customer can add to the order process.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    I have just tested the most recent version with live and test payments and all seems to be working as it should. I did uninstall and remove the old stripe code form the site before testing so things must be looking up. My only comment is that payment details are showing again on the invoices. Is there a way for this not to show, but to be saved somewhere. In some of the earlier versions this dint happen.

    Time for a Bottom Up Rebuild?

    How big do you think this active team of developers is. At the moment its Gary on his own. No Harald nor anyone else as far as I am aware. If people want these payment modules, get them coded, tested and let those that can add to the core see what you gave done. It may get added if its good enough.
  22. @burt It was John that contacted me for more details. Thought a post here may generate a bit more help or at the very least a few ideas.
  23. I has been pointed out that the user.css file is called before the bootstrap files, rather than after. Viewing the source of the page I see <!-- stylesheets hooked --> <style>* {min-height: 0.01px;}.form-control-feedback { position: absolute; width: auto; top: 7px; right: 45px; margin-top: 0; }@media (max-width: 575.98px) {.display-1 {font-size: 3rem;font-weight: 300;line-height: 1.0;}.display-2 {font-size: 2.75rem;font-weight: 300;line-height: 1.0;}.display-3 {font-size: 2.25rem;font-weight: 300;line-height: 1.0;}.display-4 {font-size: 1.75rem;font-weight: 300;line-height: 1.0;}h4 {font-size: 1rem;}}</style> <link href="user.css" rel="stylesheet"> <style>@media (min-width: 576px) {.card-group > .card.is-product {max-width: 50%;}.card-deck > .card.is-product {max-width: calc(50% - 30px);}.card-columns {column-count: 2;}} @media (min-width: 768px) {.card-group > .card.is-product {max-width: 33.333333333333%;}.card-deck > .card.is-product {max-width: calc(33.333333333333% - 30px);}.card-columns {column-count: 3;}} @media (min-width: 992px) {.card-group > .card.is-product {max-width: 25%;}.card-deck > .card.is-product {max-width: calc(25% - 30px);}.card-columns {column-count: 4;}} @media (min-width: 1200px) {.card-group > .card.is-product {max-width: 25%;}.card-deck > .card.is-product {max-width: calc(25% - 30px);}.card-columns {column-count: 4;}}</style> <!-- fa hooked --> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.10.2/css/all.css" crossorigin="anonymous"> <!-- bs hooked --> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.3.1/css/bootstrap.min.css" integrity="sha384-ggOyR0iXCbMQv3Xipma34MD+dH/1fQ784/j6cY/iJTQUOhcWr7x9JvoRxT2MZw1T" crossorigin="anonymous"> Shouldnt the user.css stuff be after all the other bits. If so how do we change the sort order of the hooks?

    Royal Mail shipping module

    Compare your RM files with the files from a standard oscommerce shipping module as I believe they were created using the flat rate as a base. I expect there has been a PHP change somewhere. You should also be able to find out why the module does not work by looking in your php error files.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Link to latest release version Latest version Is it a case that all the files in this latest release need to re-uploaded to the site or is it just the odd one or two. Upgrade instruction would be nice.
