  1. Hi Guys


    This has probably been answered so apologies in advance.


    i installed today osCommerce PayPal IPN Module v2.3.3 For 2.2MS2. with a problem.


    No values are being sent. Pay pal keeps showing the "Please provide an amount and click Update Totals" Message


    Item name OK

    QTY OK

    Unit price 0

    Total 0

    Subtotal 0.


    The checkout_confimation.php page displays the amount. but in the code i can see the following input


    type="hidden" name="amount" value="0.00"


    I’m using the sandbox testing site at the moment.


    Hope someone can help me on this.



  2. If you prevent the spider session you need to make sure you have a spiders.txt file and allow the spiders of your choice if you search for spiders.txt in the contribution section you will find an usable spiders.txt file that includes all major spiders to spider your site this will also stop any bad spiders


    hope this helps


    kind regards





    i found the spider.txt file in the includes file. which lists a whole lot bots and stuff. is the only file is needed and and is the location (in includes) the only place it needs to be


    also how can i find out if OSCID are showing up google. i havent found any but mainly becuase i have just setup. but is there way of finding these suckers in google

  3. Hello,

    I have installed the contribution, but it seems not to work.

    After instalation of the contribution the urls in the store are still like /index.php?cPath=10&osCsid=06b868b529f57040904e64a255db4c99 on not with an .html page.


    Then i take a look into the admin but there is no Configuration => SEO URLs So i can not confirure it.


    I have been checking for 5 times now or i have done all good and can not find a misstake in the instalation of me.

    What can be wrong??



    does the seo url show within the config menu

  4. its cool figured it out


    should have /shop/catalog/ in the hta file .

    seems to be working fine at the moment. i will place those if statments back in


    next step google site map mod.


    also any idea why the oscid still in url


    just in the process of replacing the if statements .


    quick question been reading up on this Spider Session Remover. is this a must becuase im still seeing OSCID in the url . i thought the oscid would not appear after this mod

  5. Okay just installed Ultimate SEO URl mod Finally.


    working fine.


    a few questions you guys probably can answer.


    im seeing the OSCID in the url. can this be avoided. ie can it be removed. without having to force cookies


    should i install the Spider Session Remover or SID killer or both not sure which one to install.


    would i have to configure anything on the admin side once i have installed any of these



    Thanks nearly there now just looking into goolgle site maps

  6. Okay cool

  7. Does the db script change the tables or just add a new table


    I may be wrong but I don't think it works on Winbloze period. Like at all. So unless you got a *nix box, look up the other contrib for winbloze. I thought I read it was the cname and pname contrib....


    it won't hose your DB, just cause a bunch of 404 while trying to hit product_info.php....and maybe a few others but can't detail since my store is beyond custom at this point...


    been reading up on this mod and so many people had problems. is it easy to uninstall after with out screwing up the shop

  8. This contribution installs the database configurations the first time it runs. This is clearly listed in the install document. The changes made to the database is what allows you to see it in your admin panel.


    so that being said, I will guess that you also installed the latest revision to this contrib with the "if" statements? I am assuming this because I installed this contrib 3 days ago and think I know what you are experiencing. I would suggest installing this contrib without the latest revision to it posted. My experience is that it prevents the db scripts from getting installed correctly and you can easily add those changes later. you also need to make sure that you do every step including the .htaccess file before the intelligent installer puts the proper configs in your database.


    hopefully you are doing this on a test store as opposed to a live active store as while you are monkeying around it may cause your shop to stop displaying products.


    Thanks man


    I am using the if statements. i wil take out the if statments and try. i have had difficulites testing it out on my local machine becuase its windows and i had a few problmes mainly seeing the 404 screen. read a few posts which told me this mod works best on*Nix.


    i have backed up db and all my files so worse comes to the worst RELOAD. have you managed to ge this mod working . im also using C-dynamic met tag mod hope this wont cause any problems

  9. Actually I think it runs the scripts for you. There should be 'SEO URLS' in the configuration section under admin.


    thats just it dont see it at all. installed a copy on my local machine and i could see it but i just dont see it in admin on the live version at all.


    there were only 2 files that i had to change as regards to admin the general and catergories one. done that


    but nothing
