    From production to local (WAMP testserver)

    I was wondering if there was a way to change php version only for the testing directory?

    Display map to track shipment progress

    My courier always sends me an email when I purchase a shipping label, so I have the email automatically piped to a php script which extracts the tracking number and transaction id from the email, updates the database with tracking number and order status and emails customer that order is shipped. Saves me loads of time. Although I like your input box idea.

    Display map to track shipment progress

    Most of the large shippers provide at least the current city via api freely and you wouldn't need to store any of that in the database. Just make the api call to get the current location, convert to Latitude/longitude via available class, pull the customers address from the database and then create the map. I think the Google Maps api is essentially free unless you are making huge amounts of queries per day.

    Display map to track shipment progress

    Or perhaps using this method after retrieving address from database and current location from couriers api. https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/mysql-to-maps
  5. I saw a website today that displays a google map that shows the current location of your shipment. I thought that rather clever. So I suppose one would just fetch the latest tracking info from UPS/USPS via api and then use google maps api to display a map with a delivery vehicles current location. I wonder if anyone has looked into this? I can envision many customers liking this feature.

    [CONTRIBUTION] Ultimate SEO URLs v2.1 - by Chemo

    I had the same issue and it turned out to be an invisible U+FEFF UTF-8 character in the ConnectDB function. I deleted this character and it works as expected.

    It's working fine now, just had to wait until I got some visitors since it's a new site. My .htaccess file didn't load because it was too large I think. I had blocked every ip range from china and there were thousands of lines. I deleted all those lines and it loads ok now. I tested the block country feature using the internal setting and it works good, although no way to delete country from database once selected. It would be great to be able to block by ASN as well. Thanks for creating this great and incredibly useful Addon. Happy new year! 🎆

    Almost have version 1.8 working. I don't see any errors but it only displays my admin clicks and doesn't show any clicks for visitors. Any idea how to debug this issue? Thanks!
  10. You can download your entire site including your control panel settings via your hosts control panel. Do a full backup and download. If you want to transfer to a new host most will transfer site for free.
  11. A stickied thread on etiquette might be in order. The concept is to ask a clear question and be respectful and thankful for every answer you receive.

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    I've been informed today that Google has a problem with one of my products and will suspend my account unless removed from the feed. What is the best way to remove or not include a product in the $sql query or resulting array? The specific product is a cannabis solid perfume.
