    Dangling Carrot (Free Gift/Discount Contrib)

    Hi all, I've got a question, which I think will need to be answered by someone with a bit of coding know-how. I have been using Dangling Carrot for some time now. It works great! One of my vendors seems to have a problem with me giving away free gifts with the sale of his products (trying to eliminate massive competition between vendors). The products happen to be the most expensive thing in my shop. So here's my question... Is there anyway to add a piece of code that will tell the shopping cart that if the total is above a certain amount that there should be NO gifts offered (instead of showing every gift that qualifies under the price threshold)? So, basically, an "if" clause that states if the ot_total > x don't offer free gifts. Or, better yet, instead of creating levels to cross (price threshold) how about ranges? So, if the ot_total is between $50-$100... offer these gifts. If the ot_total is between $100 - $200... offer those gifts (not including the ones from $50 - $100). Is that possible? In order to not show gifts for the expensive stuff I have to get rid of the Dangling Carrot all together (which is what I am trying to avoid) because the higher purchase total will include all gifts from all thresholds under it. Hopefully this makes sense to someone. I believe it is an easy piece of code, I just don't know how to do it myself. Any help will much appreciated. Thanks!!
  2. Hey Bobby, I have to say "THANKS!!" for the great contribution. I don't know what I would do without all of you guys. The sitemap works great. Everything works great! Only one question... What is the <priority> function? Not sure what that means. But, anytime a page of mine gets a priority of 0.1 I get a bit nervous. :rolleyes: Another thing. Why are people worried about whether or not you can use this service for commercial websites, when Google has this to say: Just saw that in the Google Sitemaps FAQ. Feedback on the <priority question is greatly appreciated. Thank you again Bobby for everything you do!

    Josh, I think I just dropped one in my pants! (huh?) It's awesome... BLOODY AWESOME!! (Oh wait, I'm not British) Your mod was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thanks brother!! I installed it (was a bit tedious trying to parse all the data because my site has been SUPER modified) ...and it works great. If you want, take a look (http://shop.snyderhealth.com). I only did the Jupiter Water Ionizers at this point, but I will get to the rest after I change my undies. Thanks again brother. Awesome job!!

    Just a quick mention, I am also getting a java console error message of "Error: check_form is not defined". In case that helps with diagnosing this. Thanks again.

    Hi all. This is a great contribution.. especially when it was working correctly. :'( I have no clue as to what changes I ever made in the past to stop this contribution from working, but here is my prob... The page does not refresh when a different country is selected. I have double, triple, and quadruple checked everything... Made some of the requested changes... nadda. In Firefox, I am getting the javascript console to say "Error: refresh_form is not defined" but when I do a check of the html code in "view source" I see the function for refresh_form. I AM GOING BONKERS AS I HAVE READ EVERY SINGLE LINE IN THE TOPIC AND STILL CANNOT GET THIS TO WORK AS IT USED TO!! ARGGGGHHHHHH!! :angry: Please, for the love of God, can someone (Steve?) take a look at my site and tell me what is wrong? PLEEEEEEEEEEEEASE. By the way, the site is http://shop.snyderhealth.com (click here to go straight to create_account.php) Somewhere it lies in the refresh_form stuff, but it is baffling me at this point... my eyes are bleeding. Thanks to anyone who can help. Again, this is an awesome contribution!

    Product Description 1.3

    One more thing, For this addition: if (PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION && $listing['products_description'] && PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH) $lc_text .= '<br><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tr><td class="productDesc">' . tep_flatten_product_description($listing['products_description'], ' <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $listing['products_id']) . '">' . TEXT_MORE . '</a>') . '</td></tr></table>'; Should there be brackets before and after the "if" clause, like this: if (PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION && $listing['products_description'] && PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_MAX_LENGTH) { $lc_text .= '<br><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tr><td class="productDesc">' . tep_flatten_product_description($listing['products_description'], ' <a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_INFO, 'products_id=' . $listing['products_id']) . '">' . TEXT_MORE . '</a>') . '</td></tr></table>'; } I am going to try and figure this one out.. good luck to me. Thanks for any help

    Product Description 1.3

    Hey all, I feel like I am losing my mind. Is there a place to put a small description, or is it pulling the description from the main product description? If the latter instance is true, nothing is happening. No description.. nadda. I was hoping that there would be a contribution that allows you to add a separate small description to the product lisintgs (maybe located in the admin section under the products "edit" pages). Is there a mod like this out there? Thanks to everyone for all the great work! Dean

    When someone hits your site with their proper ref code, a cookie will be placed on their computer which expires after the duration you set in the admin panel. So, if you have a cookie duration of two weeks, the cookie will have an expiry date of two weeks, causing any return to your store to credit the aff ref that placed the cookie for that customer. It does not matter where the inbound link comes from. This has nothing to do with the affiliate registered url. Technically, an affiliate doesn't even need a web site, if they can place their coded links on forums, e-mails, or PPC ads. (I would advise against allowing affiliates to take out PPC ads linking to your site... they would then be competing with you for customers that you might have gotten anyway on your own). Irrelevant... see above. ANY inbound links to your site with the proper ref code will trigger a cookie to be created on that visitors computer with your ref # and the cookie duration (set by you in the admin panel). It does not matter from where the visitor came from, as long as the address they arrived to your site at contains an affiliate ref code. This can be done with a small java script that uses the RANDOM function, which can be placed on the affiliates site. But, this is something that most people wouldn't understand, nor know how to implement. On my main site (SnyderHealth.com) I have several things that randomly rotate (using JS functions), so that every time your refresh the main page you get different stuff. It is assumed that ANYONE having their own web site has an inkling of knowledge on how to utilize the text links created by your shop. They can use their own images, their own words, their own text to hyperlink back to your page, etc. It doesn't matter what element brings them to your site, as long as their ref code is in their hyperlink. You can't spen your time teaching others on how to make a web site. :blink: Cannot be done with this contribution as it is. Does not matter where the link comes from. You have repeated this question several times already. See above. Whaddya mean? This contribution DOES e-mail the new affiliates when they register. The text for this e-mail can be found in catalog/includes/languages/english/affiliate_signup.php Have fun. This is a GREAT contribution. Not only will it hopefully generate more sales for you, but it also will generate more backwards links to your site (hopefully bumping up your page rank as well)

    Hey Scott, Is that the payment system you are using on your site? If so, is there a contribution to handle that system? I kinda need to know if I can actually implement that payment system before I start contacting them. Thanks again for your help.

    You can find the default affiliate settings (default rate, etc.) in the Configuration section under "Affiliate Program"

    Thanks Scott... Are you sure we are talking about the same graphic file? The New Newsletter button is called button_new_newsletter.gif (that's the one you are giving me) and the other is called button_new_news_item.gif. The Affiliate Newletter button belongs on the page admin/affiliate_newsletters.php, while the Affiliate News button belongs on the page admin/affiliate_news.php. It is supposed to be located at admin/includes/languages/english/images/buttons/button_new_news_item.gif, but it wasn't in the package. I will look into that payment system. Is there a module for that one? I can't find it. Thanks again brother! :thumbsup:

    Thanks Scott... I was wondering, do you have the button for the Affiliate News box (you gave me the one for the Newsletter)? I think the filename is button_new_news_item.gif I have become obsessed with getting this mod to work because I truly believe that it will help my site skyrocket in Google (especially because my keywords are non-competetive, and I already rank really well with them) and because fellow health related sites are waiting for me to finish this - as they are very interested already. :'( PayPal has gotten in the way of soooooo many mods I wanted to use. But, unfortunately, I am 37 years old and have a credit history like an Iraqi war zone, so no merchant is willing to give me an account. So, I am forced to use PayPal. I already know that the affiliate program works great (using a credit card test mod)... so it really kills me that I can't get it to work with PayPal. I know that you can pass hidden information through PayPal and have it return via the IPN, I just don't have a clue on how to modify the affiliate files to handle that. ANYONE ELSE KNOW HOW??? lol Anyway, thanks again Scott. I appreciate the help.

    A few questions. I just installed this contribution and I am very eager to get it up and running. It seems very well put together and I imagine this should bump up sales a bit (as well as create awesome backwards links) I have a few questions though. 1) Does anyone have the button image file for the Admin/Affiliates/Affiliate News (the one that says "New News Item")? 2) Same page, I have the text "EMPTY_CATEGORY" and "TEXT_NO_CHILD_CATEGORIES_OR_PRODUCTS". Does anyone know what these are supposed to say? I know where to put the Define commands, just don't know what they are supposed to read. 3) Has this mod been working with PayPal IPN? I can only use PayPal in my shop. When I do a test run no sales are being attributed to the affiliate id. All the thresholds were set to minimum and status was set to the lowest. Nothing...nadda...no sales. When I tested this with a credit card testing mod, it works great. Everything registers fine. I am afraid to go live with this until I know that it works fine with PayPal. Also, I am using an older version (something like PayPal IPN 1.0... or something). It has been working great so there was never a need to upgrade to the newest version with a zillion extra files. Does ANYONE have this working with PayPal? This is a GREAT mod.... very user friendly and functions great right out of the box (just a little personalized tweaking). I just want this to work.... DAMN IT!!! lol Thanks to everyone who takes the time to help... you guys are priceless!
