  1. I had a similar problem when I first did an install of a test site. Check your hosting is not caching your site. Mine were using supercacher which was causing it. Once a full clear of the cache was done everything worked as it should.
  2. Or as most business will do suck up the costs. I am not too sure that the Consumer Contract Regulations allow for withholding part of a payment, but there may be clause in there somewhere. I know several business that in calculating final selling prices of goods add in a percentage for returns, so this will just get added in to that. Stripe and other payment processors are also doing the same. I also think ebay are doing the same with their fees. Its not their fault the customer cancels or returns products so why should they give their costs back. Luckily I am in a low return business. Got to feel sorry for clothes or shoes sellers.

    New Installation

    Hopefully you or your hosts will have a backup of everything to a point before you started any updates. I would like to think that you have the store backed up before you started so just delete all the file son the server and replace with the backup. Then get your hosts, or you use your backup of the database and restore that. Once you have done that everything should be working as it was, then you can either leave well alone if you are unsure of what you are doing and get someone that is sure of what they are doing to complete the update.

    Attribute Addon

    There used to be a computer creator addon that has not been updated for many years. I used it on a custom computer store that I used to run. It did exactly what you are looking for, and it would only allow options if the products were already in stock. At the time all those years ago people used it for many other things, including a custom shed website. Probably need too much work now to get it working on Phoenix. Its here https://apps.oscommerce.com/5NEUS&custom-computer-creator or there was another one that I never really got to work https://apps.oscommerce.com/FwS4E&pc-pro-creator

    Price list

    Thanks @Jack_mcs Jack. I will look at both of those. I tried doing a catalogue a few years ago and it was a nightmare from the very start so binned the idea. I got software to link into the database but it meant rewriting all the product descriptions as they were sill cut-off to a certain length. Apart from that it was not too bad but expensive to print and could not be converted into a PDF for download. Restrictions on the software without paying a small fortune and an arm and leg to get the full version.
  6. I am after a bit of help again. I have searched the addons area and cannot really find anything suitable that actually works. I have tried 3 or 4 from the addons section including some early versions. Does anyone know of a good simple price list addon that creates a page listing all the in stock products in the store with their name, model number and price. Not wanting image or anything too complicated. I cant find anything that is basic and easy to alter or change to work with Phoenix Would be nice if customers could save a file copy of the list and a print facility would be good but not a requirement nif its hard to do. Any help on getting something sorted for Phoenix would be appreciated. I am prepared to alter code to get an old addon working with Phoenix if that's what it takes.

    Price list

    Thanks for all the hints and tips. I have decided that with over 3500 products, a page of products is not that good and looks horrible. I have decided to search for an admin addon and create a downloadable sheet that customers can save and use if they want. Seems easier and saves server resources. The stock taking addon looks to do something that can be saved and converted to a PDF that looks much better.
  8. All mine end up as Shipped or Download Available. Anything other that those can be deleted as they are not completed. The incomplete ones remain as the recover carts still register them. After a set time they are deleted.
  9. I had exactly the same happen with all my payment methods. (Stripe and Paypal) Unpaid or uncompleted orders remain at the Preparing stage but still count towards any totals in the store. I just deleted all these orders and the totals were corrected. You also have to watch that if you send a refund or partial refund that does not get deducted in any of the payment reports either.

    What are all the setting you have in your admin - paypal- settings. I expect one of them is wrong. In the app can you access your balance? or you have changed the name of your admin folder and upgraded without installing the file in the correct place.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Would it not be possible to supply the full code packages for both versions. Would remove any complications.
  12. I want to see what the index page looks like with full width buy and view buttons. Lots of sites I look at now have this feature. I know it will mean altering core code. I also know I have several files to alter plus others addons that I have added. I have already added a gap between the two buttons and centred them hence a few minor code differences. This is the code that currently positions the buttons in the boxes. <div class="btn-group" role="group"> <?php echo tep_draw_button(IS_PRODUCT_BUTTON_VIEW, '', tep_href_link('product_info.php', tep_get_all_get_params(array('action', 'products_id', 'sort', 'cPath')) . 'products_id=' . (int)$card_products['products_id']), NULL, NULL, 'btn-info btn-product-listing btn-view mx-1') . PHP_EOL; $has_attributes = (tep_has_product_attributes((int)$card_products['products_id']) === true) ? '1' : '0'; if ($has_attributes == 0) echo tep_draw_button(IS_PRODUCT_BUTTON_BUY, '', tep_href_link(basename($PHP_SELF), tep_get_all_get_params(array('action', 'products_id', 'sort', 'cPath')) . 'action=buy_now&products_id=' . (int)$card_products['products_id']), NULL, array('params' => 'data-has-attributes="' . $has_attributes . '" data-in-stock="' . (int)$card_products['in_stock'] . '" data-product-id="' . (int)$card_products['products_id'] . '"'), 'btn-warning btn-product-listing btn-buy ml-3') . PHP_EOL; ?> </div> I have changed the first line to be <div class="btn-group d-flex" role="group"> Which makes the single buttons full width, which is good, or spreads the two buttons equally across the box, but where to put the break to get one above the other. I have tried all sorts and nothing seems to work. Is there a rights way to achieve this. Edit. Forgot to add using Phoenix version but code looks similar to other earlier versions.
  13. Don't you ever shut up and not have the last word.. I will ask @burt or any other other mods to remove all your irrelevant posts as its doing nothing for this thread and will only stop others finding the information they are looking for. Hopefully it will be deleted from where I posted the image near the top.
  14. For those that cannot work out where the buttons are by looking at the images, they are in the product cards modules that are shown on the index page. Because it's on the index page that means that the file can be found in the index section of the content modules. As its altering the design, the template file is the one to alter. There are other similar files in the index nested content block and also just in the includes folder. There are also similar display layouts in some addons such as recently viewed, also purchased, cross sell addons and there must be more. Hopefully that answers those that need the additional direction. I have no plans to release the full code as it's best not to alter the core code, and I am looking into adding to the user.css files to create the same effect which will save the hassle of changing core code files. Matter closed or post will be deleted or moderated to remove the off topic posts.
  15. Well copy the code that is there. I posted the code for the buttons I had and the way to solve it was posted so the way to achieve the look of the buttons is there already. Reading the bootstrap pages helped me figure out how to space the buttons using padding. It also helped be get the buttons to equally spread across the full width of the content box. What it didn't help with was how to alter the osc core code. In fact just buy using one extra bit that I could not figure out where to place and it did what I wanted. After trying it on two different lines I decided against the idea and put it back to what I already had, so the code is already posted.
  16. For what purpose? That page uses mostly standard code with a few additions to create centring and padding, and possible a bit of a margin in places. It is something specific that I wanted on my site. All the information can be found by reading and learning about BS and the different parts and shortcuts available. It could also be done by changing the user.css files but it was easier when testing to modify the core code. The only trouble with modifying the core code it needed lots of files changed where as it would only take a few changes to the css and the same effect can be achieved on all pages that use that code. All that information on bootstrap can be found here https://getbootstrap.com/. Thanks. Its getting there.
  17. For now have made a decision. No doubt it will change later. Changed it to look like this. The button widths now define the width of the module boxes now that the border has been removed (actually changed to white in the user.css file) It looked a bit silly when the buttons were stacked and some products had one button and others two. Thank @burt and @JcMagpie for your help and guidance. Now just got all the other files to change so they all look the same.
  18. Many thanks to both of you. Once I have finished getting orders ready I will have a look and see what works best. I know this is a bit cheeky, but wouldnt it be good if those product boxes/cards were modular. Just a thought.
  19. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
