  1. I am hoping there is going to be a big sales pitch coming up soon as to why I need to be able to SMS message my customers.
  2. Sorry mis read your post.
  3. There was an older addon that did this for the number of downloads but not the date. I altered the code on my store and have something that works. This is for the BS admin on the orders page. In page admin - orders after $order_updated = false; $check_status_query = tep_db_query("select customers_name, customers_email_address, orders_status, date_purchased from orders where orders_id = '" . (int)$oID . "'"); $check_status = tep_db_fetch_array($check_status_query); add // Added by Erick Cedano Reset download count if ($HTTP_POST_VARS['reset_download'] == 'on') { $order_updated = true; $comments = ENTRY_RESET_DOWNLOAD_COMMENT; tep_db_query("update " . TABLE_ORDERS_PRODUCTS_DOWNLOAD . " set download_maxdays = '" . DOWNLOAD_MAX_DAYS . "', download_count = '" . DOWNLOAD_MAX_COUNT . "' where orders_id = '" . (int)$oID . "'"); } Then where the checkboxes are at the bottom of the page you need to find Find <td class="main"><strong><?php echo ENTRY_NOTIFY_CUSTOMER; ?> <?php echo tep_draw_checkbox_field('notify', '', true); ?></td> <td class="main"><strong><?php echo ENTRY_NOTIFY_COMMENTS; ?></strong> <?php echo tep_draw_checkbox_field('notify_comments', '', true); ?></td> Replace with <td class="main"><strong><?php echo ENTRY_NOTIFY_CUSTOMER; ?> <?php echo tep_draw_checkbox_field('notify', '', true); ?></td> <td class="main"><strong><?php echo ENTRY_NOTIFY_COMMENTS; ?></strong> <?php echo tep_draw_checkbox_field('notify_comments', '', true); ?></td> <td class="main"><strong><?php echo ENTRY_RESET_DOWNLOAD_COUNT; ?></strong> <?php echo tep_draw_checkbox_field('reset_download', '', false); ?></td> To update the download count and the date just check the box and click the UPDATE button. I think thats all I did. If you find the original addon, the code should be similar.
  4. There are several addons for older versions of oscommerce that did this and worked really well. I used to have one on my older store but cannot for the life of me think of the name. It gave the option of having the previous and next buttons at the top, bottom or both on the products info page. Whether one could be converted to work with the latest version I have no idea.
  5. Why not compare your current files with a known good backup copy and see where the changes are. The answer to your question will depend on the oscommerce version you are using so until that is known, not a lot of help can be given.
  6. You may have to contact Gary directly. He is on here known as @Burt.
  7. Gary at had some easy to install headertag modules at a very reasonable price for this very thing. I use them and they work fine, I just need to add one for the paypal checkout. You will also be supporting Bootstrap version of oscommerce by buying from his site.
  8. The whole trouble with adding code that you want to the core, means that it may be something that I dont want. I may need something different and it wont all get added. The whole idea is to keep the core code clean and simple and let people add easy to install one click addons for the functionality required by each store. When you think about it it makes more sense this way. Forget the old way of doing things, its in the past.
  9. There were a few PC builders available for oscommerce. I used to use one and it worked very well. Unfortunately it hasnt been updated in years, so it probably means that it isnt really needed by many. I seem to remember that it was mainly an admin addon with lots of changes, but the front end of the store was only lots of drop down boxes on the product page, so it may not be that hard to convert to the latest BS version. You could post in the paid for help section and get quotes from developers. If enough people were interested the cost could be shared. I can say I have even seen a paid for addon on the internet for computers sales for oscommerce.
  10. This may not be much help, but in my bootstrap version those links are buttons and as we have no idea on your version a definate answer will be hard to give.
  11. Its this lack of a link that has been doing all the harm to oscommerce. I am sorry, but the official version got everything it deserved. People think its dead, and with the lack of development, even today, it still looks dead. But thats the developers choice not mine, and nothing that has been said previously has altered the fact. Its a pity really that the BS version never split from OSC as it would have proved to be very successful and even more popular than it is already, even if it may have meant a lot of work for a few, or even one. I say thanks for doing what you have done Gary.
  12. The whole process is automatic and the downloads are available on the customers return to the website after making payment. There is no email link sent as they are not required. Once set up the system does everything for you. The actual setting up of the downloads and the use of the system has not changed over the years so if you can find a tutorial on setting up downloads it should almost be the same to setup regardless of your oscommerce version.
  13. When the BS version was initially released there were no addons for it. Most of the first ones that were made available were hacks to the older versions so that it worked with the BS version. If there is no addon available for what you want, it means that no one has needed it, and spent time making one that works. It then means that you have to make the alterations required, or pay someone to make the changes required, and if you feel like it you can release your addon to the community so others can use it. Thats how open source works. There is now a general consensus that addons should not alter the core code as this makes updating the software harder in the future. This is why latest addons are modular and are one click install. Hacking core code is a thing of the past. Get out of that habit now.
  14. There are several addons available that will work with the BS version that allow you to enter a custom sort order of products which may be of some help to you. Although not what you wanted, it may be better than nothing. This is the one that I use.
  15. Have a look through the addons area. There are lots of image ones in there and some that allow you to choose the name of the folder that you want the images stored in.
