    We finally got rid of PayPal today for reasons to numerous to mention. We are still using Stripe but can anyone suggest another popular payment method we could add?

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    I can capture customers ip address during the checkout process when customer pays with PayPal, but this fails when customer uses stripe. Is there a way to capture the ip during order creation? Trying to capture in web hook or checkout success has failed thus far. If not, I could just capture upon account creation.

    View Counter

    It actually was getting most IPv4's ok but for IPv6 this code seems to get both when using CloudFlare. if(isset($_SERVER['HTTP_CF_CONNECTING_IP'])){ $thisIP = $_SERVER['HTTP_CF_CONNECTING_IP']; }else{ $thisIP = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']; }

    View Counter

    Does view counter work when using CloudFlare CDN? For example, I can only get customers ip using this code: $customers_ip = $_SERVER["HTTP_CF_CONNECTING_IP"];

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    A recent customer contacted me to make sure her payment went through. She was confused because in her account area the saved card page showed an old expiration date. Doesn't this expiration date get updated automatically when customers get a new card with the same account number? Perhaps she must delete this card and checkout with new card? Regardless, her payment was successful using her saved card which had the wrong expiration date.

    I found this cool code if you would like to add falling snowflakes to your website for the holidays. Just add the code to the end of the header.php page. https://pajasevi.github.io/CSSnowflakes/

    Thanks. I just signed up for the three year HostArmada plan. They are doing a cpanel transfer now.

    DDOS on shared servers

    My hosting company was recently hit with a DDOS attack on the server that was hosting my website. Is there another hosting solution that mitigates these kind of attacks? I have read cloud hosting is good...any recommendations? Trying to avoid downtime.

    osCommerce v4 Beta 1

    I also requested to be a beta-tester from day one and never was contacted. Makes me wonder who these beta-testers are. I also wonder if these super secret beta-testers will share any information with the rest of this "open source" community.

    Fake accounts

    I lookup the offending IP asn using this tool. https://asn.cymru.com/ Then I block the asn using Cloudflare CDN firewall tool. https://www.cloudflare.com/

    Fake accounts

    Searching for "http" in new account form submission has helped me the most with fake accounts. For the rest, I block ASN's and cloud servers.

    KissIT Image Thumbnailer Support

    For those of you who would like to use this addon with PHP 8 the following change cleared this fatal error. In the image.php file, change: $trnprt_color = @imagecolorsforindex ( $this->_image, $trnprt_indx ); to: if ($trnprt_indx < imagecolorstotal($this->_image)){ $trnprt_color = imagecolorsforindex ( $this->_image, $trnprt_indx ); }

    KissIT Image Thumbnailer Support

    What's the best way to deal with this error? Fatal error: Uncaught ValueError: imagecolorsforindex(): Argument #2 ($color) is out of range PHP 8 has changed the behavior of the shutup operator - it no longer silences fatal errors.
