    switching the site to https

    @Zero222 Please read what ecartz posted. He said change all http entries to https in both of the configure files. You may also want to add something into your htaccess files so all customer and search engine links transfer across to SSL as well. Adding something like this should work, but replace the #### for your site url. # Rewrite code for non www to www and from HTTP to https RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off [OR] RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.####.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    Hook System

    Is there not a recaptcha addon that is compatible with your versions of oscommerce. If not why not update to a better version like Phoenix.
  3. It's a bit of a job but you need to create a new product then create and add as many attributes as you want to that product. Its acknowledged that the attributes system needs improving so until it's worked on it remains a lot of work to set up. The actual download should be a zipped folder that contains a pdf.
  4. Can you not just use the product downloads and attributes system so they can print a PDF of what ever the restaurant want them to bring in.
  5. When I only used PayPal Standard I found several customers would not continue with the order. I installed a recover carts addon which helped, but only if you get the email that is sent right. Many customers do ignore the emails so I presume only placed items in their cart to find out the price. You can also see who starts the process as Paypal should have a pending transaction status which as far as I believe shows when someone has actually gone to the Paypal site and then not completed. That status also shows for any refused payment as well which you can find in your PayPal account. I find from feedback that most people stop in the Paypal process on the first page they are taken to on the Paypal site as the link to pay as a guest is not as large as the create a Paypal account area. I added a second card payment method using Stripe, and a bank transfer payment method and the number of incomplete orders did drop, but there are still several a month with both card processors, and of those only a few will respond to the recover carts email. If you have done everything else to prevent cart abandonment on your site, then Paypal is probably the stumbling block. There is lots of info online about cart abandonment and how to reduce it happening.
  6. That language define can be found in includes/languages/english/modules/content/index/cm_i_title.php. You need to remember that Phoenix has gone modular, and nearly every area on a page is controlled by a module. On the index page alone there are several, and the same with the products page and shopping cart and a few other pages. Most language definitions are somewhere in the language folder but may take some finding. Paypal I think is the only ones that aren't. As to your other error. if you have not already joined the Phoenix club here is a comment that was given there when someone had a similar error. In the file with the error they changed line 22 to if (array_key_exists('customer', $GLOBALS) && $GLOBALS['customer'] instanceof customer) { and the error seemed to go away. (Note that that code is not in the very latest version.)

    [Contribution] Ship In Cart

    @raiwa Just tried this on and got a few errors.. I got past the first one by changing line 158 from require('includes/classes/shipping.php'); to but all the errors after that totally stumped me. All about address formats that may have changed with an update somewhere. Sorry couldnt be much help after that.

    Sitemap SEO

    @Jack_mcs I have managed to update the button code which seems to work where ever the button was needed in all the files. <tr> <td align="center"><?php echo tep_draw_bootstrap_button(IMAGE_UPDATE, 'fas fa-refresh', null, 'primary', null, 'btn-success btn-block btn-lg'); ?></td> </tr> I am now not getting all the pages to show in sitemap_seo_page_control.php. There is no error just no list of pages.

    Sitemap SEO

    @Jack_mcs I have just tried to install this addon to a phoenix store and have the following error in admin/sitemap_seo_page_control.php The relevant lines in the code are <tr> <td align="center"><?php echo (tep_image_submit('button_update.gif', IMAGE_UPDATE, 'name="update_pages"') ); ?></td> </tr> I take it that its due to the buttons being changed in the BS admin versions. There is also a similar error in the sitemap_seo_box_control.php and the sitemap_seo_settings_control.php. When I get it working correctly, I have also updated the front end pages to work with the new template file system if you are interested.
  10. Points and rewards is something that I want to make use of. I wanted to see what it was like so added it to a copy of my test store. I didn't think about it before but I could have added it to a copy of an earlier version. I have a few other addons that I need so have decided to upload the new store when I have all the basic bits available and after making sure that everything works ok then I will add new features when they become available. Thanks for the response though.
  11. @raiwa Rainer I have just tried to install this on the latest and received several errors when installing the headertags module as expected when reading the instructions. I know you normally do not upgrade your addons until a certain release point but thought I would just mention it. Here are the errors. I know you are busy, but if you could just look into one of the errors and point me in the right direction I could probably find the rest. Also noticed that when installing the points payment module the text in the module says Enable Cash On Delivery Module. easy change I know. I also believe that the PayPal page has also had changes made.

    Advanced Specials

    I have been using this addon for years as it make adding special products so easy. It works fine on my old site but as I am now updating to Phoenix has anyone gor this working on that new a version. I am struggling trying to change al lthe table stuff to something a bit better.

    QTPro BS

    Are you sure it has not been moved to templates/default/includes/hooks/shop/sitewide which is where many of the hooks are now placed.
  14. On my Frozen store its the same as you are describing. There is no final delete button. If you really want to delete them you may have to go into the database and delete one at a time from there but backup first.

    how to change Phoenix 1075 CSS?

    I read that as wanting to change the colour of the button. I may have misinterpreted it somehow. Sorry.

    how to change Phoenix 1075 CSS?

    Also check if your host use any cache that you can clear. If you want to change the colour of every button with the same css class search the button code and see what definition is used. You should see something similar to btn-info. That is the pre set css that controls the colour of that particular button. If you want to change just the background colour try adding something like this to the user.css file That will change the background and border colours of that particular button type. There are lots of other bits that also control that button so look for Then you will probably need to do something similar for all the other button classes and there are a few in bootstrap. If you want to see more about bootstrap have a look here https://getbootstrap.com/docs/4.5/components/alerts/

    PI Call for Price Button

    Whilst I would not use this on my store it does seem like a good idea which others may use. Why not package the whole thing up as a hook or something and release it as an addon so others can use it.
  18. I get that oscommerce was created over 20 years ago, but more than 5 years ago it was left to die. It was turned into a community project and with the guidance on mainly one coder and a few store owners it was improved. If you want to use the 20 year old version of oscommerce feel free to do so. There are lots of addons that you can find for that version that will do what you want. The hardest part will be finding the older ones that you need, but they will be there. You cant blame Phoenix for your errors and mistakes. As you say you messed up your site twice, that was your doing. You should learn from those mistakes and take regular backups saved to your computer before you make any changes. I learned that many years ago. You would only have had to start from the last backup then to put things right. Easy and common sense. As along time supporter of oscommerce I hate it when people come and bad mouth something that they are doing nothing to change, and many here will feel the same. If you dont like what you are using go find something that will work. You made a decision to use Phoenix. No one forced you to do it. You tried the others and chose Phoenix for what ever reason. Get with the flow and if there is something wrong that you feel should be updated or changed make the suggestion in a civil manner and explain what needs changing, how to change in and supply the changed code. Be proactive. You will earn respect for it, but all I think you want is something for nothing.

    upgrading php version on v2.3

    You will have to go through any addons or code changes to see if they are available for Phoenix. Most of the more popular addons are already useable, but there are many that are not. Phoenix is still currently morphing into what it wil lend up as, so there is a lot of work involved to stay on top of things once you have updated, but it will be well worth the trouble. If nothing else your new site will be responsive.
  20. Why should it be a standard feature? Just because you want something does not mean that others do. Standard features included in core should be something that nearly everybody wants, not just s few. If lots of people wanted it, someone would have already updated the older modules. Its always been the way on these forums that people have to create the bits of code they want and then release them to others. The core developers have improved the core system massively to allow other developers to create the modules that store owners need. If you need a feature for your store get it coded as I said before. Invest in your store and not expect everything to be for free. Coming here and take take taking all the time, then shouting when something is not as you want will loose you many friends. It probably already has you on several block lists and your posts will not be visible to many. People here give their time to help and code for free in the spare time they have and they will not tolerate abuse or negative comments.
  21. @SafeTBird Have you tried placing this in the Commercial support threads. There may be a developer that will code what you want for you. You can then release it back as an addon for others to use, unless you want someone to do it for you for free. See here https://forums.oscommerce.com/forum/79-commercial-support-inquiries/

    Continue Shopping

    Dont think it will ever get added into core, but is a requirement of many stores.

    upgrading php version on v2.3

    There are people that have updated an older version to work on a later version of php. I tried doing it to my current site which is running on an Edge/Frozen hybrid and there were so many errors and warnings on almost every page in both the shop and admin that I left it as it was and started developing a new store using the latest Phoenix. It seemed at the time to be the easiest, but beware that there are lots of addons that are not useable on Phoenix without being updated also.

    Store Search Bar (BS)

    @milerwan Is there any plans to update this addon to work on the very latest Phoenix I installed it on that version and had many errors showing mainly related to TABLE_CONFIGURATION. I changed all instances of that to 'configuration' but then there are lots of other warning which I have no idea on.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Just a warning to those users of this module. I had a customer place a fraudulent order the other day. He entered an address in Finland and changed the country to the UK as I only use this module to accept payments from UK based customers. The payment went through fine believe it or not. The order was not sent as the incorrect country was used which used the incorrect shipping option. I spoke to stripe about this and apparently this could happen. They have suggested a few changes to my Stripe account settings which may prevent it from happening again. It looks like the checks returned as "Unavailable" in the payment. This can happen as some banks do not carry out these checks at the time of payment. The checks in Stripe radar will only pick this up if the checks are actually failed when the checks are made. The changes I made were to what checks are actually required. Its in the Settings - Radar - Rules area in your Stripe admin dashboard. The advice from Stripe is to check any payments where the tests are unavailable. They also said that you can block a user from paying for products using Stripe, and any card information in your block list can then used to prevent the same happening to other Stripe users as the data is shared. Like I say, just a warning to be aware..
