  1. If you cannot code this yourself, then you need to find a developer who will code it for you. Or you might wait years for someone who can code to realise they need it for themself, and even then you have to hope that they would make it into an add-on.


    So, if you have the cash, get it developed, make it into an add-on and sit back and bask in the glory of lots of shop-owners using your codebase, and sending you thank you messages every day :thumbsup:

  2. Precisely what George said, nothing more to add other than to say that I have no clue what official osc documentation will arrive for templating.


    I wrote a couple of UNofficial ebooks about templating already and cannot see myself writing one about 960/osc.

  3. Yes, this is possible but is not straightforward. You need to;


    1. (obviously) set up the colour options

    2. link an image to each of those options

    3. make a smaller image for each of those options and link those to show the larger version

    4. use javascript to swap out the large image based on the colour selected

    5. use more javascript to change the selected option based on which image is presently "live"

  4. You will need to create (or have created for you) a shipping module which;


    1. the store owner can insert prices for postcodes

    2. the shipping module then picks up the postcode and charges the correct amount (free or otherwise)


    It is possible that this already exists as a contribution, you can try a search for it.

  5. Peter, I agree with everything you have to say.


    PWA has never been a solid addition to any site in my opinion - it's better to strip out some of the checkout and only "hide" other bits.


    Remember that a buyer doesn't need to create an account, he does need to give contact details and payment info though - and if an account is created from that, then it's all good.

  6. (oh and if someone knows a way to do up some code to track impressions of the sites banners on affiliates websites please let me know.)


    The only thing I can think of is to parse the img src through a PHP page which counts and updates the database as necessary. So the link will look something like:



    <a href="http://www.snowzone.net.au/demostore/default.php?ref=14" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.snowzone.net.au/demostore/image.php?image=banner_a&ref=14" border="0"></a>


    Now image.php will need to parse the ref and add an impression to the database, but will also need to send a mime type and display the image. Not simple and definately heavy on the database...


    Whilst doing this, I just logged back into Snowzone to build a banner and get this:


    <a href="http://www.snowzone.net.au/demostore/default.php?ref=14" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.snowzone.net.au/demostore/images/" border="0"></a>


    The img src is not giving an image... .jpg or .gif or .png etc...



  7. Why is it confusing to have a seperate affiliate account to a customers account???
    I think that it should be kept 100% seperate. I run an Affiliate Scheme on a site and 95% of my Affiliates are people wanting to earn a $?$, they are not interested in becoming a customer. Maybe this is a UK-centric thing though? Don't know.


    I guess i'll have to unregister the session once signup is complete to stop the problem you had from occurring. Havent had that one pop-up before...thanks for pointing it out...
    No worries, the one I presently run does exactly that - "thanks for signing up - now go check your email and log in" type of thing...

  8. The only thing I can see is that when I signed up, I was automatically logged into the Affiliate area - I didn't have to wait for my email to arrive with the username/pass combo.


    I went to build myself a banner - and my ?ref=0 which was wrong. So I logged out and back in (using the details sent in the email) and now my ?ref=14


    So that could be a problem...



  9. I installed this contrib and it doesnt appear to be working on netscape or mozilla....anyone else have this problem?




    Copied & pasted from the readme file included in the zip:


    This Contribution adds a "Bookmark" script to each page of your site.  Its an Internet Explorer only deal - and once installed *should* only show in 'IE'. It has been tested in 'IE6' - works fine.  Also tested in 'Opera', 'NS4.76', 'Mozilla 0.9.3' (where again it works as it should [it doesn't appear in these browsers]).
