  1. I have still not found a resolution for my problem. Anytime I use the dropdown menu to sort products, it drops the session id and deletes everything from the shopping cart. This is obviously not good. Try it out here: http://kimandjason.com/shop/home-office-be...251_77_169.html (Be sure to add something to the cart first, then try the dropdown menu.) I'm surprised other people are not having the same problem. If I can't get this to work, I'll have to remove this contribution, which would stink because I love it! Somebody -- PLEASE HELP!
  2. I'm having the same exact problem. I'm losing the session ID, which is deleting products that were in the shopping cart. Help!
  3. I'm having the exact same problem. I just activated the default PayPal module via the admin the other day. My first PayPal order came in today, but the only reason I knew that is because I got a notification of payment received from PayPal. I did not receive an invoice from the store, and there is no record or the order anywhere in the admin. Please help! Thanks, Jason
  4. I'm getting this message in admin/easy_coupons.php the error is: 1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '-10, 10' at line 1 SELECT *, now() as today from coupons order by id desc limit -10, 10 [TEP STOP] Anybody know what this means? Thanks! Jason
  5. Bill, I compared all of my files with the files included in the clean install folder of your contribution. Ultimately, I think I found the problem. It occured in the index.php and product_info.php files. In the instructions of the version of Header Tags 2.5.9.1 I had previously installed, it gave these instructions: FIND: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=<?php echo CHARSET; ?>"> <title><?php echo TITLE; ?></title> REPLACE with: <?php // BOF: Header Tag Controller v2.5.7 if ( file_exists(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'header_tags.php') ) { require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'header_tags.php'); } else { ?> <title><?php echo TITLE; ?></title> <?php } // EOF: Header Tag Controller v2.5.7 ?> I ended up reversing this in both files, and it now seems to work fine. The DOCTYPE stuff is first, followed by the normal meta tag information. Hooray!!!! The only thing I want to double check is... In the afforementioned instructions from the stand alone Header Tags 2.5.9.1, it also had me make some other customizations to the catalog/index.php and catalog/product_info.php files. I left those in place, and it doesn't seem to have an adverse affect on my shop. However, I was wondering if I should try and remove those customizations as well, because I didn't see anything about those files listed in your combined install instructions. (Don't want any loose code sitting around mucking things up.) Should the index.php and product_info.php files also be modified in order to work with the Header Tags Contoller? Thanks again for all your help. It looks like the worst is behind me (crosses fingers) Jason
  6. Bill, I verified that includes/headertags.php and includes/languages/english/header_tags.php had both been set at 777. Upon trying again, the index page breaks when I add require(DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS . 'clean_html_comments.php'); at the top of includes/header_tags.php and the whole site breaks when I change header_tags.php to headertags.php in the "Files for normal template" section under Modules>STS. Same two error messages as posted above. Jason
  7. Bill, I must be missing something here. I think part of my problem is that I already had Header Tags v 2.5.9.1 installed. Then, a few months later, I upgraded my STS 2.01 to STS 4.2. This was before you came out with your dual package of STS and Header Tags. So something has been lost in the translation (on my end). I did what you said and verified that my STS template starts with the exact code as you suggested: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"> <html $htmlparams> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us"> <!--$headcontent--> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="stylesheet.css"> </head> --The sts_template.html has no extra title added to it, per your instructions. --I downloaded your combo package, and uploaded includes/modules/sts_inc/headertags.php, which was not on my server. (But header_tags.php was) --I replaced the new includes/header_tags.php, includes/functions/sts.php, includes/functions/clean_html_comments.php, and includes/functions/header_tags.php with the new ones in the combo package. --I placed the code require(DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS . 'clean_html_comments.php'); in includes/header_tags.php right above require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . 'header_tags.php'); --Finally, in the admin panel, I went to Modules>STS and changed "Files for normal template" under Default from "sts_user_code.php;header_tags.php" to "sts_user_code.php;headertags.php" This caused the site to break, with this error: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare tep_get_header_tag_products_title() (previously declared in /home/kimandja/public_html/shop/includes/functions/header_tags.php:8) in /home/kimandja/public_html/shop/includes/functions/header_tags.php on line 8 I resolved this issue by changing back to "sts_user_code.php;header_tags.php" in the "Files for normal template" I also found that my index page was broken, bringing up this error: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare clean_html_comments() (previously declared in /home/kimandja/public_html/shop/includes/functions/clean_html_comments.php:13) in /home/kimandja/public_html/shop/includes/functions/clean_html_comments.php on line 13 I resolved this issue by removing the code require(DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS . 'clean_html_comments.php'); from includes/header_tags.php So my site is still functioning, but I'm still having the same header issues and am apparently missing some step or two along the way. Hopefully this information will point to an obvious problem/solution. Thanks for your help. Jason
  8. Hello, I am having a weird problem. I use Header Tags and STS v4. I am having an issue on my site in which some of the meta tag information is being placed ABOVE the DOCTYPE declaration info. Here's how the top of the page source looks on this page (http://www.kimandjason.com/shop/index.php): <title>Kim & Jason Lemonade Stand</title> <meta name="Description" content="Cool stuff for the young at heart, including unique greeting cards, t-shirts, artwork and gifts."/> <meta name="Keywords" content="unique gifts"/> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"/> <!-- EOF: Generated Meta Tags --> <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> <html dir="LTR" lang="en"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> <title>Kim & Jason Lemonade Stand</title><base href="https://www.kimandjason.com/shop/"> This problem is occuring on every page, not just the index page. Jack over at the Header Tags forum said he thinks it's an issue with STS, so I figured I'd try here. I tried inserting the doctype info as the first line of my template, but that didn't help. Does anyone know what is causing this? Thanks, Jason
  9. Actually, the problem is with every page. The Header Tag information gets placed above the doctype info on all pages. I guess I'll try the STS thread.
  10. That makes sense. Any idea what specific file might be the culprit? I use STS and the template itself DOES have the doctype info first, so I'm not sure which file in the Header Tags contrib is the one responsible for actually inserting the header information above it. Thanks for the help. Jason
  11. Greetings! I am having an issue on my site in which some of the meta tag information is being placed ABOVE the DOCTYPE declaration info. Here's how the top of the page source looks on this page (http://www.kimandjason.com/shop/index.php): <title>Kim & Jason Lemonade Stand</title> <meta name="Description" content="Cool stuff for the young at heart, including unique greeting cards, t-shirts, artwork and gifts."/> <meta name="Keywords" content="unique gifts"/> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"/> <!-- EOF: Generated Meta Tags --> <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> <html dir="LTR" lang="en"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> <title>Kim & Jason Lemonade Stand</title><base href="https://www.kimandjason.com/shop/"> Does anyone know what is causing this? Thanks, Jason
  12. Bill, I just wanted to let you know that the tip you gave me ultimately led me to the answer I was looking for. I think I have everything working well now with my brand new redesign. Thanks for taking the time. Jason
  13. Bill, I found this article in the Knowledgebase: http://www.oscommerce.info/kb/osCommerce/G..._and_Tricks/252 Assuming that I found the right document AND I want to change the text links in the dropdown box (becasue it's not a graphic), this is one of the example codes it gives: <?php echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT) . '">' . 'CHECKOUT' . '</a>'; ?> So, for instance, one of the drop down links I've created is http://kimandjason.com/shop/kj_reviews.php How do I repair that link to match the correct format? Would the new link look like this? <?php echo '<a href="http://kimandjason.com/shop/kj_reviews.php">' . 'REVIEWS' . '</a>'; ?> Thanks for your assistance. Jason
  14. Thanks for the quick response! Here's the problem: 1) If you go to the store (http://www.kimandjason.com/shop) and add any product to the shopping cart, that product will show up in the left hand column (in the shopping cart box). 2) You can continue to add products to the cart, and they will all show up in a list in the shopping cart box in the left hand column. (Obviously, this is normal.) 3) What is not normal, however, is once you have a product or two in the cart, AND THEN you choose one of the links from the "Lookie Here" drop down menu, the browser will take you to the corresponding page, but all of the products in the cart will be dropped. The shopping cart box will show "0 items." So it's not deleting the source code, it's just emptying the shopping cart for some reason, and I'm not sure why. Thank you for lending your expertise to this matter. Jason
  15. I'm in a bit of a pickle. I have a custom drop-down menu in my template. Whenever I click on an item in that drop down list, it will go to the page just fine, but it deletes the contents of the shopping cart. I can add items to the cart just fine, but if I happen to go to any of the items in that drop down list, it will delete the cart. Here is a link to my shop: http://www.kimandjason.com/shop/ The offending menu is labeled, "Lookie Here"
