    Day 26 - Login Modules Three modules, all login, in different parts of your site. Now you can choose which ones make it easiest for your Customer... Core Code Changes None Navbar - dropdown Login in the Navbar After login this changes to Side Column - can be placed right or left column After login this box disappears... Footer - matches the other footer boxes After login this box changes to This footer box is therefore, pretty much a replacement for the standard "account" footer box. Summary Three Login modules which will allow your customer to more easily log in.
  2. Add a box to left navigation

    Yes. That is the meaning of modular. You build a module, you install it via admin, it displays the box.

    Day 25 - Product Listing Modules Today I have two modules for you, both of which make changes in the module: /includes/modules/product_listing.php Module 1: View "X" Products This is a HT Module which allows you to add in breakpoints which allow people to view more or less items per page. Core Code Changes Call a Hook File, so YES. Admin Side Shop Side -AND- Module 2: Price Slider This is a HT Module which allows you to add in a slider which, when changed, will remove products that are more expensive. Core Code Changes Yes, unless you are on up-to-date Edge, in which case No. Admin Side Shop Side As the Slider is moved up and down the price...products disappear and reappear based on their price. Summary Two HT modules, both of which extend the product listings.
  4. I don't use GA so I dont know the answer... But, what customer data is sent to the Google Servers? If you can find that out, we can at least make an educated guess.
  5. Google Snippets

    @John W I never even noticed that products with status = 0 can show in there. That's not good. I'll hotfix that in the next round of hotfixes. Thanks for the heads-up

    Day 24 - More GDPR A few more Modules for the GDPR page... Core Code Changes NONE 1. Orders 2. Device Data (turn on if using a previous 28d that collects this data) 3. Reviews 4. Security Answers (turn on if using a previous 28d that asks for this data) 5. Cookies Also a "Forget Me" module for the GDPR bit of the account.php page which leads to a way for Customers to Nuke themselves. Summary A bunch more useful modules to try to cut down on YOUR workload shouhld you have EU customers who want to know their data. Over the coming months up until May, I expect shopowners will come up with more ideas of things that need to be shown, and these can be coded up as extra modules.
  7. Glad you are back up and running. You're my right hand man @ git !
  8. If it helps; Win 10 Sourcetree 1.9.10 (ancient!) Latest Putty files from link above
  9. Google Snippets

    Note that these snippets are also geo-targetted. If I search for the same phrase, I get a shop located in the EU... BTW, it is interesting that this data comes from your Best Seller List, which has no structured data!
  10. Updating the three files here ( renamed the existing ones in case I wanted to rollback)... with the ones downloaded from here: https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/latest.html Cures it. Try that and report back @BrockleyJohn ?

    Day 23 - Data Driven Replacements Nice little HT module that accepts a CSV file of words/phrases and then replaces them in the products_description... Core Code Changes NONE Admin Side Shop Side (using Popover) Shop Side (using Tooltip) How the CSV file looks, this powers the system
  12. Confirmed, same problem. Win10. Am about to update to latest Sourcetree to see if it fixes it. Will report back.
  13. TY @BrockleyJohn for some code cleanup of malformed HTML and so on. Commits https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/commit/759a1ce7ecd18a76ed5e1f2a6c879043ecdcabe8 https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/commit/1674e3c87e4393ff642ed1136185bafd7eb984bd https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/commit/206a9ca6bdb54c449556d8f8822cfa009ffd68be Biggest change here is the change of the <noscript> from HT module into a CM module.

    Day 22 - More Product Tabs I have some more Tabbed goodness for you, these are used with the 28d02 set of modules. Core Code Changes NONE Tabbed X-Sell Set up X-selling on a per product basis. Show the X-Sells in a Tab! Note: Requires a previous X-Sell system of mine, included. Tabbed Social Sharing Much better looking Social Share Icons shown in a Tab! Note: Requires a previous social modules of mine, included. Tabbed Gallery This one I particularly like as I found a way to add in more Images ... by changing 1 admin setting they can then be shown in a Tab In standard osC, you get a gallery looking like this: By turning on the Tabbed Gallery and changing 1 osC setting...it transforms into this: Summary Three useful additions to the Tabbed System! Note While coding up these modules, I did find a tiny bug in the main p_i module, this would not have shown itself with the original included modules. Bug Hotfix will also be sent tonight.
  15. Dutch forum

    Gone. I believe the "plan" is to have a Dutch channel at this Forum which will be moderated by @wHiTeHaT I am unsure when that channel is due to be opened.
  16. pffffff, as I said at the time, we can revisit this at a later date.

    Day 21 - Lower Price Into the final week with a module that allows your customers to find out how to contact you if they find a lower price. Core Code Changes NONE Admin Side (Module) Notice here that you can change the "action" which can be click or hover. You can also attach the label anywhere on the page, with a bit of experimentation it can look really good. Shop Side (Display) By manipulating the "Attach" you could add the label before or after the description, image, price, pretty much anything on the page... Shop Side (Popup) Obviously all of the ext etc in the popup is changeable by you in the language file. Summary Quick and easy way to let customers know you are open to be told about lower prices.
  18. The advice to change core code is far from ideal. Preferable advice would be; - make a hook - make a replacement module - etc I do not know if the asker has 1 product, or 100, or 1000. In any case, it takes 30 seconds to perform a database hit to update seo_title to match name. However, this little conversation is good as I can revisit my piece of code and come up with some changes.
  19. That is correct, and expected. Make your "product seo title" the same as your "product name" for each product.

    Day 20 - Security Questions I'm sure you've all experienced those questions that sites ask; What was the name of your first cat? What was your mothers maiden name? etc etc They do that to increase security, as only you know the answers you gave...and no-one else should. I have made such a thing for osCommerce. It takes 1 random question from your list of questions, it then sees if the answer given by the customer matches what they originally answered. If yes, happy days. If no, error out and refuse action. Core Code Changes YES. 3 lines of code on each form you want to protect. Everything else...no core changes at all. Admin Side (New Infobox Link) Admin Side (page for shopowner to add in questions) Shop Side (link in account.php to answer security questions) - "secure your account" Shop Side (new page for answering security questions) Shop Side (example of outputted question) - this example is account_edit.php Shop Side (example of failed question) Summary An easy way to give an extra layer of security to your customers. Consisting of Admin Page + Language File Admin Box Link + Language File Shop Side Page + Hook + Language File Account Module + Language File
  21. It was a bit tongue-in-cheek. Although I do get a lot of spam mail from one particular place I signed up to, so hopefully I can stop that.
  22. I can tell you now, that I will be causing so much trouble to every site I ever signed up to... Maybe we all should ?
  23. It's true Dan. https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbestechcouncil/2017/12/04/yes-the-gdpr-will-affect-your-u-s-based-business/#607bdeae6ff2 The link also clearly states that my previous post is incorrect. f some random french guy buys from you while he is outside the EU, GDPR does not apply. I guess: collect the IP address to prove it. That is super interesting. Do you accept Euro or GBP on your site(s) ? Yikes. Sounds like a separate checkbox needed for all external stuff; [ ] can we mailchimp you [ ] can we use Paypal [ ] can we Maxmind [ ] can we blah blah
  24. Hot damn, you're my new Hero :) As we in the UK have found out...the majority want nothing to do with Brussels.
  25. Agreed. It's going to be a very problematic system I think. I can foresee 1000s of people (those with tin foil hats on) contacting every site they ever signed up to.
