  1. I have never really looked at the time of making a payment, but I have orders that are paid using PayPal standard and once paid all the items show in PayPal, so they must get sent across. The one order I looked at had 22 items in the list. Surely Paypal are only really interested in the total as thats the payment they want.

  2. No hostility but it does annoy when people give the impression that to get support you need to join the Phoenix club. Saying that if you want to support Phoenix, get free code and addons to make your site better, and to move the project forwards then by all means join, it is worth it just for the freebies.

  3. You can get support outside of the Phoenix club easily, but it would pay to join if you want.

    I sell downloads using oscommerce. The hardest part is setting them up as the attributes system is not the best but has missed out on any updates as yet. Once set up its all fully automated and never needs touching again. I have had downloads selling for many years and never touch them at all.

    There is a very good post here on how to set them up. Just remember that this was written when oscommerce layout was different so you just need to find the correct links and all should be fine as the attributes system has never changed.

    That should get you going.

    Totally get that.  I moved it without too much ado.  I'm not too bad at the coding, and you guys have helped me so much over the years, but I have had endless problems with servers and emails not sending, and never been able to sort those things.  Just not enough hours in the day!

    I still have my b/fs shop oscommerce, so I will keep my hand in - though his isn't so important! lol


    Good luck in the future with your store. Sometimes a change works wonders for the business.

    Yes I have already make that choice of the Shiny Red Apples 

    By Unit and box attributes , but when the customer adds to the basket by Unit or by Box  it has to neccesary choose the both options , I mean it doens't have the choice to choose one or another  so thats the problem, what happens if somebody wants to buy just by box and not for Units or viceversa.


    You need to create an attribute of 1. So a single item will show first in the dropdown, then under that have your box/pack quantities. Rather than use boxes use Quantiy but make additional quantities the siee of the boxes.

  6. I can fully understand where you are coming from in wanting to host your site elsewhere. There are times that I feel the same. The costs in my time alone to keep updating the current site is probably more expensive than a monthly fee.

    There is a way to download all the database tables either together or separately in phpmyadmin, which should be in your hosting account. If you have cpanel then its all there. You can export as a CSV file and then open and check the database tables are the same before uploading them to your new system.

    Failing that there may be people that can easily export your data and transfer it to another codebase.

  7. Have you tried doing it one step at a time, or failing that create the new folder called what you want your new folder to be in the images folder on your server first, and then try creating the sub folder in the ready made folder.

    Many customers do not know where they live.

    I have had, entering the incorrect Postal Town or using the village name instead. Giving me the Post Code for their previous address, and cramming the entire address into Address Line 1 with a random entry in the City field are just a few examples.

    Totally off topic but I am glad to see that its not only my customers.

    What people say is sometimes what they think you want to hear, and sometimes does not reflect reality.  I'll dig out that code and email you tomorrow.

    I take a lot of things customers say with a large pinch of salt. Its never their fault and they do nothing wrong but still things happen that the website gets the blame for. Its as if they think it can do things on its own. I even had one customer once claim that the website must have created an account in his name using all his correct details because he never did, and he wanted the account deleted. He apparently only found out that an account was created when he received the welcome email.

    I have had one yesterday, the two payments were 4 minutes apart and the first one although completing the payment has this error.

    I would love to look furthe rinto the Stripe side of things with mine, but I am currently unable to access my Stripe account. They say I have never had an account with them. I feel I have a way to go yet but will report oin the errors if there are any when I can get access. I cant even use chat as I cannot access my account.

    I can throw you that popup thing you tested (Supp Code) early if you like to try it on your live site.
    Although it is for Bootstrap 4, it *might* work.

    Sorry Gary, been a bit busy. That would be good if you don't mind me having it.

    I have narrowed it down to just Stripe where payments are being taken twice as it seems not to be affecting PayPal, but for the life of me I cannot find out why. Customers say that they are only clicking the button once, but there may be other things that they are not telling me. Its also not every payment as many go through fine. For now I have turned off Stripe partially due to another reason with them locking access to my account but they do say that they do not know of it happening to others. Again don't know whether or not to believe them.

  12. I hope someone else is having this problem with Stripe.

    I am getting a few instances a week where the Stripe payment module is taking the payments twice. Customers are claiming that they are only pressing the checkout button once, and there is only one order per customer. Is this happening to anyone else, and is there a cure for it. I am using the latest version of the addon on a frozen store.

  13. Is there a way of making this so no core files are touched or modified. Oscommerce has come  along way and in most cases code changes like this are not required. Then may be upload it as an addon in the correct place so others can find and use it.

    I don't know how to link it, I compressed it into a zip since there are folders inside. It is a code that I bought a few years ago but in theory it can be installed in the same way that the current plugins is called osC_Product_Attribute_Filter, so that it allows me to install I made a few modifications in the code following instructions that I found in google, but after Being able to install it only shows me the price but not the attributes and the price filter doesn't work if I change it for another value. If not much can be done with what I explain, I will wait for the new version for Oscommerce Phoenix to come out. Thank you very much.


    You may have to contact the addon maker or put your hand in your pocket and find a good developer who can update it for you. A quote may be best before agreeing any work. It may not need that much altering but as most of the front end has changed in Phoenix the changes may be large.

  15. Are you sure Phoenix version has all the hooks files. I would upgrade to a later version of Phoenix. !.0.5.0 is a safe version and lots of addons were made for it, or you could go up to or higher if you really need to , but you may have to wait for addons to be updated if you cant do it yourself.

  16. Why not just create a static page that includes all the images and text. Basic HTML will do that. Failing that look online for a php based image gallery and convert that to work with an oscommerce page.

    hi Steve, @14steve14

    Thank you for your reply. I installed before and it is also fixed header, but it admin infobox all go horizontal menu, not get used to it yet....and i have version with 50+ addons installed, so i stick with version for now, and see later if can find any instruction of upgrade to newest phoenix. 

    I will try z-index you suggested, thank you!  Lyn

    I will be honest when I first installed I hated the horizontal menu but I added text next to the icons and now all is easier until I get used to whats where.
