    Help with SSL!!

    more info required Is this for your production cert ? yes - why are you raising the key - host should do this for you No - how did you raise the csr - the same process should have raised your key Charles

    Easy Populate question

    The file size is OK - model no is a REQUIRED field so it must be present for each and every product - also you must have the EOREOR at the end of every row. Charles

    New products page error

    You do not add any manual links Place the line above wherever you want the all products link to appear - you seem to have done this in your categories box As for the error I would suggest you have installed incorrectly hence the missing function - you need to revisit and go thro one line at a time Charles

    Oscommerce SSL padlock missing

    OK - Glad that change helped but when in checkout - everything should be in secure mode - this is where your customer is sending you their info :D Why would you prefer the checkout process not to be encrypted ? Charles

    Oscommerce SSL padlock missing

    your define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', 'D:/Websites/xxxx.com/store/'); is set to D: ? it should be something like define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/public_html/yourdomain.com/catalog/'); Also is the missing padlock the only problem - i.e no other errors or alerts ? Charles

    Screen resolution option

    hey amanda - how about making that processing a contrib - great stuff I think keep it as you have now - small res will not turn people away - scrolling left and right will. Also if you have less server work now - win win all round I would love to be able to do the same but for connection speed rather than resolution :D ( small/ few or No images for dial up etc etc ) Charles
  11. Hi Chemo and others I just realised I posted this on the Old support thread for this contribution - so forgive me if you read it twice Installed this today and 2 things spring to mind 1) On viewing the new cache table there is a message in phpMyAdmin PRIMARY and INDEX keys should not both be set for column `cache_id` Have I installed incorrectly - or is this as expected and does it cause any problems with the indexing ? 2) The install instructions from a standing start are very good and clear - The ony one I had a little trouble with was .htaccess - I have installed in my test site initially and the catalog directory is in /home/****/public_html/shoptest/catalog - does this mean the correct entry for .htaccess in the rewritebase is RewriteBase /shoptest/catalog/ or is it still /catalog/ because my .htaccess is located in shoptest ? Charles

    Page Cache v1.5

    OK fixed - here's the lowdown In the instal instructions in step 2 it says STEP 2 - Create a new directory at your root called "cache" Future versions will make this a setting that can be changed via the admin control panel but for now it is hard coded. If called in an URL it should look like http://yourstore.com/cache/ This works if your cart is installed in root ! - see the last sentence above. In my test store where the problem arose my cart is in fact in path home/****/public_html/shoptest/catalog - i.e not in root ! I moved the Cache directory from out of root to within shoptest/catalog and bingo problem gone. Now to test the page load speeds. Charles

    Page Cache v1.5

    Amanda Very probable - How do I get rid of the unnecessary slash ? I cut and pasted the code into application top, bottom and html - whatever so I did not manually type anything in - therefore not really sure where this error might be coming from. Charles
  16. Hi I want to add the specials box to a page outside the osC directory structure - (same server \ domain tho) I have used the outside osC contrib to add the whats new box, (and it also adds bestsellers which I don't want hence have taken out) I have looked at the randomize contrib as well Can someone point me in the direction I need to go to change one of these (or any other contrib) to display the specials box on my splash page. This is not mega urgent - but it I appreciate your help non the less Charles

    All products undefined function error

    OK Fixed - I had used the contribution packed one day early - the later package - which from the description I didn't initially think I wanted had the required fix. Charles
  18. Hi Just installed the All Products contribution But when I click on the link I get this error - any ideas why (well i know why some function appears to be undefined - but where do I define it and how do I define it ? Fatal error: Call to undefined function: make_link() in /home/simply/public_html/shoptest/catalog/all_products.php on line 96 to see this go to http://www.simplyeasier.com/shoptest/catalog and scroll to the bottom just above the copyright is a link to the all products page - click on the link and you will see the error. Charles
  19. Hi There is no thread that I can find for this contribution http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2844/ - so a general question to dhtml experts I had to hack this around a bit to get it to sit with other contributions I have installed - it now works BUT the DHTML seems to be re-arranging the array for the categories listed in the category box - net result is if you load a page the menu items are in one order - refresh the page and they SOMETIMES appear in another order. If you move from one page to another the order does not appear to be changing Any ideas what may be happening here If you want to see what I mean http://www.simplyeasier.com/shoptest/catalog Thanks Charles ps - I have a few categories and this "chaging order" may appear like a feature of the site - however I would like fixed categories if possible :D before I put the contrib live.
  20. Hi I have tried - but cannot get the menu to work in the way described in this post - although this is what I want - I guess I have 3 choices Learn javascript wait until someone does this and then apply the contrib look elsewhere :huh: Charles

    sorry - I corrected it immediately after the post - and didn't tell anyone :rolleyes: What it was was cellpadding in index for the new products table was at 2 not 0 - I could have sworn I changed it last night when I was bleary eyed, tired and grumpy. Made the change and now we are cooking with gas as we say in Suffolk Charles

    Jack The problem was when I first set up osC I added my own header logo - the instructions for doing this suggest a change to cell spacing and padding changing it from 3 to 0 :) in ALL the Catalog files So I went back and changed the table settings to a spacing and padding of 3 and bingo One last thing I noticed that the new products box is not shading correctly - I dare say I have not changed the new_products correctly although I have combed thru it and cannot find a difference to the one in your contribution. The problem is when I use any shade class the bottom seems disengaged from the box and if I use right - well that is a long way from the box. I can live (just about) with the bottom - so that is what I am using - but any ideas on what to look for? When time allows and if no-one else has done it I will update the install instructions Thanks again for just what I was looking for. Charles

    Just noticed after all that that the left border of the right column buts up against the products list - How do I create a space between the left edge of the right column boxes and my product listings ? Charles
