    Multi-Stores Multiple Shops Support

    Hi HOBBZILLA and All, For those who are having problems with insallation, I have created 3 sql files that should help you out. Upload and install the files from the contrib and then simply use the modified sql files in the package I have prepared. You will have to go into each sql file and replace #name# with your choice. Of course on the number 3 sql file, which is all of the inserts, you should do a "replace" with your favorite editor since it is so large. Since this forum does not allow attachments, and I probably have not registered, contact me at: f1peace@netzero.net and I will send it to you. Or better yet, HOBZILLA contact me so you can look it over first. (I have a 9-5 job so give me a couple days to respond) As well, I have been looking through the code of OSC and really think I have a direction for making this contrib as a TRUE MALL SYSTEM. There are a couple other contribs that I am working on integrationg such as the subscription contrib. The only thing I have to do is finish a diff so Multi-Stores defines don't get erased.. (You can find it in a search on "subscription" in the contrib section. Back to the Multi-Stores contrib and my package.. Install OSC... Copy Multi-Stores contrib files....Run my package on OSC... then run my sql package 1.2.3 for each store you want to make.

    Thanks monstrico and hobbzilla, The problem turns out to be my concept of what the Multi-Stores contrib does. I was looking for a Mall system, and quite frankly, this contrib is so very very close to being just that. I went in with Mysql control center and made a new store called Main Mall I changed the store_id in Table.configuration to the store_id of Main Mall When I create products and categories in any of the other stores, if I also assign them to Main Mall, they will show up on the home page of the mall (What's New - New Products etc.). Otherwise they only show on that particular store. See the possibilities? (I've looked at the Virtual Mall contrib but it can't get near what the possibilites are here) A vendor adds products to their shop but only want certain ones to show up on the main mall, but all the others will show on their store pages. The Mall admin can control which items he/she may want to show up as well. I have disabled the buy now button on the Main Mall to eliminate the invoice problems with buying an item from another store from the Main Mall pages. I have taken out the link to "create stores" in the other store admin sections. But it is probably preferable to delete those files so someone can't access them from the address bar. Administration changes needed: 1. When a store owner goes to their admin section, they should only see the catagories and products that belong to them. 2. When they click the Store button, they should only see their store and the "Main Mall" store options. There are a few more things, but I have not intelligently documented them as of yet. My point is, this contrib can make a fantastic Mall system with just a bit more tweaking. I've been aware of OsCommerce for some time but just now came back to it seriously. I have to look at the code further and get to understand it but with some help from others, I think this contrib can become the answer to those who want an opensource solution to a Mall system. I'll be tweaking as time permits and hope others have the same interest in a Mall system using this contrib.

    Hello, I can only display one of two shops on the main page, ie. mystore.com shows the products and categories for myshop.com/store1 in the Table configuration the STORE_ID is set to one in the Table configuration_store1 STORE_ID is also set to one. in the Table configuration_store2 STORE_ID is set to two. So therefore only the contents of configuration_store1 show up on the main page, unless I change the STORE_ID in the configuration Table. If I comment out the define->configuration in database_tables (/catalog) I get an error that that table can not be found. In database_tables.php (/catalog) I have defines set for all three configurations. In database_tables.php for each of the stores, I have defines set for only their respective configuration table. The respective stores work perfectly, with the exception of my main page. Any way to fix this without a complete reinstall?
