  1. @@14steve14 - you are far more eloquent than me. @@perbuch "Therefore I expect you will change your attitude from now." No, YOU will change your attitude when you have a few more posts and realise how much crap gets posted in this forum, and usually crap forced on us by 3rd party "developers" who know next to nothing about osCommerce and expect their clients to get help here.

    Size Search Addon

    A way to do this would be to add a new input box to each product for "size". Then you can make a dropdown (of size ranges), and link that to the advanced_search_result page. The advanced_search_result page would need a new query to deal with the SQL that would return the result. That is not an awful lot of help, but it gives you a basis on which to search for a solution.

    Product with option

    This is the basis, which I created for a client (but have not yet tested live); http://www.clubosc.com/bundle-products.html

    Product with option

    I recently coded up something closeish to that. I have not yet had opportunity to fully test it out.

    To follow the development

    It's gone quiet. No answer to questions here, no activity on github. No answers or updates on twitter. After the fanfare a month ago and the already broken promises about the future of osCommerce, it's disappointing for the community to be ignored.

    PayPal Maximum Transcation Limit

    The sending limit for Paypal is $9999. Therefore, the receiving limit must also be $9999 (less fees).

    Credit Card Module

    You did not define the TABLE_CREDIT_CARDS in the database_tables.php file(s).

  14. Sorry Daniel - but that did make me laugh. You believed words from a host??!!??

    OSC V3

    90% of those webhosting companies would be resellers of the very few "real" hosting companies. So the conclusion is not quite as dramatic as it could be. In any case, it does not matter what hosts are ready just now - if *any* people want to use 3 for a live shop, they are; a. crazy b. delusional c. mad d. hardcore php developers e. all of the above ;) It is simple to set up localhost with all the required extensions, which is surely enough for developers to get on with developing, and for potential users to test out the bare-bones code that is being released today.
  16. Ask whoever you got the template from. This is not a forum for support of 3rd party products such as templates.

    help editing "free" template

    Free or otherwise, you need to seek help from the template vendor, as this particular vendor is well known for producing templates that hack up the core code beyond belief.

    Wordpress does it well. Of course, wordpress is a simple system for writing blogs and not a fullblown ecomm system. But it might give a way forward. Agreed.

    No progress will be made until ALL coders follow a standard procedure for creating addons. And that is NOT going to happen as addon makers vary from day 1 newbies to 10 year veterans. Shipping Modules follow a standard procedure (usually). So perhaps you can create a system based around the idea of plugins/hooks?

    PHP Coding

    I agree with you Rob. The usual osCommerce way is, I think, more confusing than your preferred way which is, I think, more confusing than the way I'd do it :D I think. Well sometimes I do ;) For indentation, that's another subject entirely! I like to indent 4 spaces, thus; <?php if ($abc) { $something; } ?> Example, as I would write that differently anyway, but you get the drift. Though in html, I like to use 2 spaces; <body> <div id="this"> <p>blah</p> <p>blugh</p> </div> </body> What I really HATE seeing is this type; <?php if ($abc) { [TAB]$something; } ?> Wasn't sure how to get a tabbed indentation in the forum? I'm sure that someone has come up with some sort of indentation standard. Is there one?

    PHP Coding

    The problem (or, if you look at it like I do, "the freedom) with PHP is that there is so many different ways to do something. <div id="something"> <div id="another_something"><?php echo ( SHOW_ACCOUNT > 0 ) ? 'Was larger than 0' : 'Was NOT larger than 0'; ?></div> </div> <div id="results_div"> <?php foreach ( $big_array as $key => $value ) echo ' <div id="single_result">' . $value . '</div>'; </div> "Loved reading this thread :-)" I agree, good thread. Fun.
