    Hi Everyone :D First of all Rhea ... you are an absolute genius ... thank you, thank you so much for a FANTASTIC contribution. After months of late nights, sifting through contributions, adding fixes, installing and uninstalling more times than I care to remember I've finally got it right. Its working on my version of RC1, but also not without the help of the fixes mentioned here by Scott olsonsp4c. Thank You Scott for sharing that with all of us. I also got the same error on the create-account.php file and applied the fix you mentioned by commenting out the following: // $insert_id = tep_db_insert_id($insert_query); To the others that have also managed to get the CCGV(trad) successfully installed on RC1 , I do however have one very small problem and was wondering if any one else is experiancing the same. if so any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated. On the coupon_admin.php page, after adding discount coupons, I find that the coupon name is not updating. Its not really making any difference to the operation of the module but if I could get it fixed, I'd be happy. Again I say a heartfelt thank you to Rhea for all the time an effort that has been put into creating the module and for the many hours spent answering posts here in the forum and all the time spent trying to meticulously put to gether all the install notes. To everyone else that has contributed to this terrific module Thank You. :thumbsup:

    Shipping and Tax Order Totals

    Hi Everyone I'm hoping someone can provide me with a solution to a problem I'm having. I charge a flat rate for shipping and charge tax at a rate of 14 % (South Africa). We also charge vat on the shipping charge. In the admin section, the Order Totals found under the modules tab are as follows: The sub-total is set to 1 The shipping is set to 2 and display shipping is set to true The tax is set to 3 The total is set to 4 Now the problem I'm having is when a customer checks out - only the tax shows and not the shipping. I've been trying all kind of settings and nothing seems to be working for me. I'm using the RC1 version of OSC. If someone could posible provide assistance - I would be most greatful. thanking you all in advance Rose

    NEW: Anti Robot Registration Validation

    The confirmation code should be on the contact_us page. The actual page which is used to generate the code is the validation_png.php file which is in catalog/validation_png.php . You also need to make sure that in the admin section the "Activate Validation" is set to true. and you need to set it to true for the setting which says 'activate for contact_us'. If you still have problems we can do this the long way round - you can email me and I'll try my best to help you. rgds rose

    TinyMCE Wysiwyg Editor V2.0.8

    Yep - I think so too - my original post was before I found out that the stray tags were as a result of the header tags controller. Now I know but am not sure how to implement it - the code that codes into the header part of things is simple but even it apply the id/name/class tags to the <td>/php code on the page for me its not working. so obviously I am doing something wrong and its that now that I am trying to find out. What I am doing wrong and how to fix it. So far no luck but I havent given up yet. Rgds Rose

    TinyMCE Wysiwyg Editor V2.0.8

    No - no special names - just the id or name placed correctly and it should work - if you know exactly how it should be done you'd be more than welcome to share with us that info. according to the documentation the 'mode' option can be used in various ways - I would most certainly refer to it a 'special change' in order to get it to work only specifying the editor to specific textarea. This is what the docs say Option: mode This option specifies how elements is to be converted into TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor instances. This option can be set to any of the values below. textareas Converts all textarea elements to editors when the page loads. specific_textareas Converts all textarea elements with the a textarea_trigger attribute set to "true". exact exact - Converts only explicit elements, these are listed in the elements option. These elements can be any kind for example textareas or divs. Example of usage of the mode option: tinyMCE.init({ ... mode : "exact", elements : "elm1,elm2" }); Option: elements This option should contain a comma separated list of element id's to convert into editor instances. This option is only used if mode is set to "exact". Example of usage of the elements option: tinyMCE.init({ ... elements : "elm1,elm2" }); Option: textarea_trigger This option enables you to specify the name of the attribute to check if it's value is true/false. If the mode option is set to "specific_textareas", only specific textareas with a attribute by the name of the value of this option gets converted and only if it's set to true. This option defaults to "mce_editable". If the mode is set to textareas and the textarea trigger attribute value is set to false, these textareas will not be converted. Notice: This option is deprecated. We strongly recommend you to use the editor_selector/editor_deselector options instead since they validate with W3C specifications. Example of usage of the textarea_trigger option: tinyMCE.init({ ... textarea_trigger : "convert_this" }); Option: editor_selector This option enables you to specify a CSS class name that will be required on the text areas that is to be converted. This enables you to select specific text areas for convertion by adding this CSS class name to the class attribute of the text area. If this option isn't set to a value this option will not have any effect and the mode option will choose textareas instead. If you want all editors to be converted and just specific editors to be excluded check the editor_deselector option. This option also enables you to use regual expressions like myNoEditor|orMyNoOtherEditor or .*noeditor. Example of usage of the editor_selector option: tinyMCE.init({ ... editor_selector : "mceEditor" }); Example of usage in the HTML: <textarea id="myarea1" class="mceEditor">This will be a editor.</textarea> <textarea id="myarea2">This will NOT be a editor.</textarea> Option: editor_deselector This option enables you to specify a CSS class name that will be deselect textareas from being converted into editor instances. If this option isn't set to a value this option will not have any effect and the mode option will choose textareas instead. The default value of this option is "mceNoEditor" so if mceNoEditor is added to the class attribute of a textarea it will be excluded for convertion. This option also enables you to use regual expressions like myEditor|orMyOtherEditor or .*editor. Example of usage of the editor_deselector option: tinyMCE.init({ ... editor_deselector : "mceNoEditor" }); Example of usage in the HTML: <textarea id="myarea1" class="mceNoEditor">This will be a NOT be a editor.</textarea> <textarea id="myarea2">This will be a editor.</textarea> So you see - Jack - my whole script which is in my header is currently working and in my opinion needs a special change for it to work only for the textarea which I specify and that would be the product information. I do not need the editor for the product_title/description/keywords - nor do we need it to add categories but, none the less, thankyou for that snippet of valuable information in your last post. I'll be sure to save it. Oh by the way the tiny_mce_src.js is also a file with a whole lot of variables which can be set. Its not just the .js script placed in the header. Once a person knows how to work with tinyMCE properly - what can be done with it is actually quite amazing - all I want to know is how to specify the editor to a specific textarea. Rose

    TinyMCE Wysiwyg Editor V2.0.8

    The question is, is to get it to work with the header tags controller. With the script inserted into the head section, all instances of texareas will have an editor. One does not need to have an editor for the texareas which are created by the implementation of the header tags, one would only want the editor for use with the products description. the editor is also initialised when one adds another category which one does not need to have. so ... the script itself has to be configured to allow the editor to only be initialised for specific textareas and in this case it would only be the products description. to do this one has to do the following and I quote this from the article on the moxiecode forum "yes, you can limit tinymce to certain text areas only: place this on the header (the relevant items are in bold) : tinyMCE.init({ mode : "exact", elements : "txtTextArea1,txtTextArea2", theme : "advanced", theme_advanced_toolbar_location : "top", theme_advanced_statusbar_location : "bottom", theme_advanced_resizing : true .... }); your intended text areas should look like : <textarea id="txtTextArea1" name="txtTextArea1"></textarea> <textarea id="txtTextArea2" name="txtTextArea2"></textarea> what I am battling with is the adding of the id/name to the code on the categories.php file <td class="main"><?php echo tep_draw_textarea_field('products_description[' . $languages[$i]['id'] . ']', 'soft', '70', '15', (isset($products_description[$languages[$i]['id']]) ? stripslashes($products_description[$languages[$i]['id']]) : tep_get_products_description($pInfo->products_id, $languages[$i]['id']))); ?></td> my knowledge of java is lacking somewhat and I was hoping someone could figure this out ... I haven't been able to yet despite everything that I've tried. I know it can be done and we/someone could get this to work the tinymce can be used by all using the header tags controller coz at the moment it does not. rgds rose
  9. The problem that I was having as mentioned above I discovered was because of the header tags controller mod which I have installed. TinyMCE can be made to work with the header tags controller. I am still trying to find out exactly how the configure the javascript in the head section of the page. TinyMCE can be set so that the editor is limited to certain textareas. for more information on how this is done you can read the following article at Moxiecode http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=4415 you will also have to read the documentation on 'modes' which is included with the tinymce mod If anyone figures this out before I do please post the solution rgds Rose

    help with easy populate!

    help with easy populate!

    HI Duncan what version of EP are you using? Rose
  12. Hi Everyone I downloaded the contribution posted by Sputnik77 and installed it and found the installation instructions very easy but I did however find that certain features like the tables and the text color picker etc - everything that would pop up - was not working - well not working for me at any rate, so I went to the Moxiecode website and discoverd that a new version had been released. I downloaded the new version, (it has 27 plugins which can be used as opposed to the one available in the contributions section which has less) which also comes with great documentation and discovered that the Java script which has to be inserted into the <head></head> section of the admin/categories.php file has to be configured correctly for it to work properly. Features can be enabled or disabled, the layout can be changed, oen can choose from an advanced layout to a simple layout - handy if you want to use certain layouts with certain forms etc. So after a whole lot of hard work and seeking solutions to problems that I was experiancing, I now finally have the tincymce working on my site. BUT I am however experincing one small problem still. My site at the moment has no errors throughout. After I have added a product using the tinymce and I view the product description in the front end I find that I have 2 stray closing tags ' "/> ' situated right at the left top corner of the page. If I delete the product its disappears. To me it seems obvious that it has somehting to do with the tinymce. I just have not been able to find out where the problem is lying. Hopefully someone else will and will post here in the foums or at the contribution secion. So for ayone who would like to try again with the TinyMCE again download version 2.0.8 and install it keeping the same directory structure. Remember to remove the documentation files as they are not needed on your web server. Here is the java script I am using which has to be placed between the <head></head> section of the admin/categories.php page - you can also add it to the mail.php and newsletters.php page. Spending some time and reading all the documentation is well worth it. <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo (($request_type == 'SSL') ? HTTPS_SERVER : HTTP_SERVER) . DIR_WS_ADMIN; ?>tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/tiny_mce.js"></script> <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> tinyMCE.init({ mode : "textareas", theme : "advanced", plugins : "table,save,autosave,autosave,cleanup,advhr,advimage,advlink,emotions,iespell ,insertdatetime,preview,zoom,flash,searchreplace,print,contextmenu,directionality ,inlinepopups,media,nonbreaking,visualchars,devkit,paste,noneditable,layer,fullpa ge,fullscreen,", theme_advanced_buttons1_add_before : "save,separator,", theme_advanced_buttons1_add : "fontselect,fontsizeselect", theme_advanced_buttons2_add : "separator,insertdate,inserttime,preview,zoom,separator,forecolor,backcolor", theme_advanced_buttons2_add_before: "cut,copy,paste,separator,search,replace,separator", theme_advanced_buttons3_add_before : "tablecontrols,separator", theme_advanced_buttons3_add : "emotions,iespell,flash,advhr,separator,print,ltr,rtl", theme_advanced_buttons4_add_before : "visualchars,nonbreaking,devkit,separator,layer,fullpage,fullscreen", table_styles : "Header 1=header1;Header 2=header2;Header 3=header3", table_cell_styles : "Header 1=header1;Header 2=header2;Header 3=header3;Table Cell=tableCel1", table_row_styles : "Header 1=header1;Header 2=header2;Header 3=header3;Table Row=tableRow1", table_cell_limit : 100, // these can be changed to suit you table_row_limit : 5, // these can be changed to suit you table_col_limit : 5, // these can be changed to suit you theme_advanced_toolbar_location : "top", // these can be changed to suit you theme_advanced_toolbar_align : "left", theme_advanced_path_location : "bottom", plugin_insertdate_dateFormat : "%Y-%m-%d", plugin_insertdate_timeFormat : "%H:%M:%S", extended_valid_elements : "a[name|href|target|title|onclick],img[class|src|border=0|alt|title|hspace|vspace|width|height|align|onmouseover|on mouseout|name],hr[class|width|size|noshade],font[face|size|color|style],span[class|align|style]", external_link_list_url : "example_data/example_link_list.js", external_image_list_url : "example_data/example_image_list.js", flash_external_list_url : "example_data/example_flash_list.js" }); </script> I may come accross some improvements to this but for the time being this is what I am using. I may also try placing the script in a seperate file and calling for it. With regards to the little problem I'm, experiancing - if someone finds what the problems is please let us all know. Happy New Year to all. Rose
  13.

Could someone please tell me what to do to fix this? thanks Rose

    FAQ Desk Errors

    I've installed the FAQ Desk v1.01.1 and I get the following errors which I dont know how to fix. Firstly, In Admin after creating a couple of categories and then adding FAQ to a category I and if I want to delete that FAQ I get the following error Fatal error: Call to undefined function: tep_array_reverse() in /xxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxxx/catalog/admin/includes/functions/faqdesk_general.php on line 206 Secondly the three images are way outsize and and takes up 3/4 of the page. And I'm not certain what the purpose of all the images are. I cant delete them as it deletes the image completely from the server. If I disable the 3 images in Front Page settings it does not disable the images they still show up. I dont know how to fix this and would appreciate any help whatsoever. I've tried going thru the forum and havent found a solution and I uninstalled the mod and re-installed it twice now and its still not right. I would appreciate any help. Thanking you in advance.
  15. Please could someone tell me if its possible to use the two contributions together. (Easy Populate and Attributes Copier) At the moment I have both installed but find that i cannot copy the attributes from a item uploaded with EP to an item that that was added the conventional way but also with the attributes copier and vice versa without getting an error message. Now what I'm wondering if this is possible if it is then I just have to fix up the error. Please some advice here will be appreciated very very much. Thanking you all for your time. :)
