  1. It's come to my attention that we might have a problem or not, at Customer Logs In > My Account > Addresses Primary Address (and other addresses) do not show the State. See attached image; The array at the top shows the Data. The address below does not show the State. Can anyone confirm on their Bootstrap? I am about to install a standard 2.3.4 to see if the same occurs - which will be my first 2.3.4 installation in over 3 years!
  2. I'm thinking the page might not be 100% perfect, but it might be enough to make the customer happy and then not have to email shopowner, forcing shopowner to take an hour out of their day sorting it out. That's the aim, anyway.
  3. I'd guess exact the same as @14steve14 reply. You would still need a permission tickbox to store their data (for your orders). If the customer, then in the future wants to know what data you hold... I *guess* you would not have an account to search for, so how would you get the order data ? Search by name? Email? Order ID (if they have it)?
  4. It would be really cool if you emailed these two companies, asking for their advice... When/if you get a reply post it back to this thread... I *guess* you will need to have extra tickboxes asking for customers permission to send some details to maxmind/fraudlabs. What customer details are sent? I have never used either of these, so I don't know...
  5. My Account -> Primary Address

    D'oh Austria = address_format_id 5 US = address_format_id 2 Address format id 5 does not show state. Address format id 2 does show state. All seems OK.
  6. My Account -> Primary Address

    Yep, it does indeed show the State Abbreviation on USA addresses, nice spot. Could you try an Austrian address please @BrockleyJohn
  7. My Account -> Primary Address

    TY @BrockleyJohn I think I got to the bottom of it' If the inputtted address is in a country that has Zones (eg USA, Germany, Austria etc)...the State does not show: If the address is in a Country where the customer had to input the state (rather than choose from the pre-defined dropdown), the State Name then does show; This seems like an oversight. This oversight exists in standard osc (and I had forgotten just how shit standard osc looks!) and in community osc. Should we do something about it ? Or just leave as is, it hasn't caused an issue for 18 years...

    Day 19 - Recover Carts Standalone page and helpers for the Admin Side, which allows you to easily email customers to let them know they have a saved (abandoned) cart. Core Code Changes NONE Admin Side (Box Link) Admin Side (Page Layout) Outgoing Email Contents can be changed in the Language File.
  9. When I wrote this, the above was true. I had never heard of it, and I thought it was dreamed up by someone in an office with nothing better to do. Now, I do know about it. And while I still believe it was dreamed up by someone in an office with nothing better to do, I can also see that it might be useful for people to know what data is known about them. After all, it is your data, not the property of the shopowner...
  10. He has. This module was built well prior to this thread (actually built for 29d 2 years ago, but unreleased), but this thread served as the catalyst to get it completed.
  11. ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    Read the underlined and italicised bit in my previous post. Even your image shows two examples of such. Bloody Hell.
  12. Security Message

    The message tells you what to do. Tools (box on the left column in admin) > Security Checks (one of the links in that box)

    URLs are not shown by Google in a properly set up website. It is not rocket science, but if you are brainwashed into believing something else...it might seem like rocket science.

    Day 18 - Device Data A way to *attempt* to see some data about the device that the Customer used to place the Order. Consists of 1 module and 1 hook, and a helper file. Core Code Changes NONE Admin Side (Module) Shop Side NOTHING! Admin Side (Viewing Data) Click the new Tab "Device", which shows the known Data; This would be "personally identifiable data" per GDPR rules, so if you are collecting this data... would also need a GDPR module for it...coming soon ;)

    Day 17 - Sale Sticker A quick and easy way to make your customers aware that a product is on Special... Core Code Changes NONE - if on up-to-date Edge, otherwise Yes. Admin Side Notice that you can easily change the Sticker Colour. The Sticker Text "sale!" is in the language file, again easily changeable. Shop Side In the Index Page ^ In the Category Page ^ In the Product Page ^ In the Specials page ^ and elsewhere (eg search results), but you get the idea. Summary I've always found it a bit strange that osCommerce software never really made anything of a product on special offer. A decade ago I made a module that did this same thing (add in a sticker) differently, and even just last year an update of that to simplify it. Now this new module is the most simple of all, just a HT module to upload and turn on, assuming on up-to-date Edge!

    This is Out Of Date. Sites like these post stuff, then don't update it. These links were good, now not. GOOGLE DOES NOT SHOW URLs. For context:

    ALL. Let's not have personal insults. If you have a different viewpoint to someone else, that is fine. Explain why. More Personal Insults will result in sanctions being taken, which can be as simple as a note (like this post), to outright ban from this forum.
  18. CSV feed import renaming file question

    Yes. Look at these PHP functions (note this is off the top of my head, but it'll give you a starting point); glob filemtime rename
  19. Redirect to home page after account edit

    Revert that change. IN account_edit.php, look for tep_redirect(tep_href_link('account.php', '', 'SSL')); and change appropriately.

    And an IP Address module, in case you have collected IPs for each Order. Lots of shopowners collect IPs...

    Day 16 - Automated GDPR Does not matter where you, shopowner, are based in the World. It's all about your client, and if any of your clients are EU Citizens...you *must* offer them a way to see what personal details you hold about them, and offer them a way to delete out some of that data. Again...for 100% clarity...it does not matter if you are in Paris France, Paris Texas or China or Thailand or where-ever, if you sell into the EU...you must comply with EU Regulations. This new system helps to show what data you hold on logged in clients. This is a work in progress as I am hoping anyone who gets their hands on this, comes up with ideas for more modules (I can think of at least three more), but want to get feedback before more coding... Core Code Changes NONE New Link in account.php This link leads to a new modularised page. As this new page is modularised it is simple to code up more modules based on individual shopowners needs... For starters I have included four GDPR modules; Admin Side > Modules > Content Intro Just a block of text explaining what GDPR is etc. You can obviously change this to better suit your needs. Contact Details Personal Details Site Details All of the above are MODULES, so can be turned on/off from Admin. Summary A way for EU clients to view the Data you hold. This may very well be enough for their needs, thereby no need to request personal intervention from you, taking up your time. If you have guest accounts, you are stuffed. Ideas for more Modules I can think of at least a few more modules that can potentially be coded. But let's see what you guys have to say after you have this system.
  22. Please report back on your findings when on live server, as I am thinking we could potentially do something with a Hook... Default Hook: load the fa from the fa site Non standard Hook (maybe an addon or such): load the fa from your own server

    Day 15 - Batch Actions You get up in the morning and check on your admin to find you have a few new orders, or maybe more than a few! Now you have to cycle through each order, updating order status, updating the customer by appending comment, printing an invoice, printing a label... that's potentially 10 clicks per order. If you got 20 orders that's maybe 30 minutes wasted! Core Code Changes NONE New Sidebox Link New Page in Admin This standalone page recreates the "order" page but adds in Batch Actions. You invoke the batch action by ticking the tickboxes (notice them next to each order ID). At this point, you can do a number of things; Print Invoices Click the "print invoices" button. This opens up a new page which has all the (ticked) invoices on it ready for printing. Each invoice starts printing on a new sheet of A4 paper. Print Labels Click the "print labels" button. This opens up a new page which has all the (ticked) packing slips on it ready for printing. Each label starts printing on a new sheet of A4 paper. Update Order AND Send Email Dropdown a new Order Status, and (optionally) insert your Comment into the other box. Click the "update order and send email" button.... The order gets updated to the new order *and* email is sent! Update Order Dropdown a new Order Status, and (optionally) insert your Comment into the other box. Click the "update order" button.... The order gets updated to the new order (and no email is sent to the Customer)! Summary With this new system, it is possible to update 50 or more orders, as well as readying them for printing and readying them for label printing...IN LESS THAN ONE MINUTE
  24. It could be as little as one week from now, or not. Timeframe really depends upon a number of shopowners stepping up to bat, and allowing (more) time to be given by two people. Final consists of one more job, but that job is a large one; bootstrap v3 to v4
