  1. Hi Malcom, Modified:) I haven't tried it yet on a clean install. If I get a chance to do so I will let you know if there are any issues. Peter
  2. @ArtcoInc Thanks, LeeFoster's is an existing Add On which is supposed to do exactly that: I tried your Add On (the second attachment with the missing file) but it would not function for some reason - I got a white screen below the navbar! Not having luck with this image search add on. Even the original header one would not work with images showing when I installed it! Peter
  3. Hi @LeeFoster I am still experiencing issues with this Add On. For feedback, I think there are a number of remaining coding issues with it, including: 1. The content_search.min.js in the ext /modules /content /navbar/store_search directory points to a "header" location for content_search.php, not the file included with this Add On, therefore requiring that the original header search on which this version was based is installed. Pointing it to the right file breaks it for some reason. So it does not seem to work without the header version of the content_search.php file from the original contribution. 2. The navbar content_search.php file above requires the header add on version of the language file, not the language file included with this Add On. 3. The defined terms in the content_search.php file all reference MODULE_CONTENT_HEADER_... not what appears in the language file with this Add On. I think this Add On has great potential. But it needs some work. The search function itself works fine. Peter
  4. @wdepot Hi, I downloaded and installed your update to this Add On. Thanks for taking the time to update it. Some feedback on items not working however: 1. filenames.php I am fairly certain is deprecated in recent versions. I fixed by hardcoding the filenames. 2. the instructions ask the user to reference a /catalog/ directory in their .htaccess file. I would assume most are installing oscommerce into their public_html folder and not using a catalog folder. 3. The pop up search help link does not work. It references a popup_search_help.php file which is missing from my installation of osCommerce. Peter
  5. Thanks for the feedback. I'm using the modular navigation bar. The default responsive navigation bar gave me the option (in Admin) to switch between fixed and floating but the modular nav bar does not appear to have that same option. I remember when using the default one I trialled both before settling for what I have. I'll give it some thought. Thanks again, Peter
  6. Hi Lyn, I would not be too concerned by this. Do you have a site map add on installed? If not I recommend that you install one as that helps tell the search engines what to crawl. You can notify google of your site map in the webmaster console. Peter
  7. PHP

    Hi, Which version are you currently using? I used PHP 5.6 from a fresh installation of BS 2.3.4 edge beginning of 2017 and recently changed it to PHP 7.1. Everything appears to be functioning perfectly. Have you tried changing the version and then testing to see if it works? You should be able to change the PHP version in the server settings. Also, see the following post which may be helpful: Peter
  8. Hi, I just updated my website for: 1. New Products Carousel Add On. 2. KISS image thumbnailer. Long overdue. Thank you @raiwa for an exceptionally useful add on! Peter
  9. Well said Frank. The businessman in me cringes at reading a topic which turns quickly into bashing by some. Not good reading for anyone coming to this forum looking to make a decision about what shopping cart software to use. I think Gary's intentions were laid out clearly in that it was intended to be a constructive discussion and where he was genuinely asking others for help. Whatever the status of new versions etc. are, I am grateful for this (free) software and the work done by everyone on it, including Gary (for an incredible responsive version) and of course, the founder, Harald. I've learned things I would otherwise never have. I have far more autonomy over my hobbyist website than if I were locked into a hosting solution like shopify (which btw I trialled before coming back to osCommerce). Add-ons are free. Gary's many add ons are fantastic and all he asks for in return are nominal "pledgies" towards the project. Of course I wish more people showed their support with their wallets rather than words judging by the measly sum that has been pledged thus far. Many people are willing to go over and beyond to help others on this forum. I have been the beneficiary of the expertise of many forum members. There are great foundations here and I look forward to osCommerce's future. I would love to help any way I can. I believe in the power of a community and this community still looks like it has a lot of support from its members. Peter
  10. Hi Jim, Thanks for the response. I did not explain the first issue well enough. The carousel does resize but you end up with the entire carousel shrinking and the same number of products being displayed. So by the time you end up on a smaller screen you have squashed products. By comparison, the new products carousel reduces the number of products at different breakpoints so by the time you end up on mobile sized screen, it only displays 1 product. To restate my question to hopefully yes / no as I appreciate you are busy: 1) is your featured products carousel designed to work in that same way as the new products carousel module (in which case something is not working in my install), or not (in which case I can attempt to replicate elements from the new products carousel module). Thanks, I will try to do so. Thanks again, Peter
  11. Hi Kymation, I just installed the front page featured products carousel add on: I would be most grateful if you could point me in the right direction on the following, as I am stuck: 1. The carousel does not collapse when resizing the screen (viewing on different sized devices). Is it meant to? If so, any ideas why it would not be doing so (things I can check to see which might be contributing to it)? Note that the new products carousel, which I have also tested, does collapse: So I am assuming that the featured products carousel should collapse. 2. Is there a simple way to create the rectangular thumbnail border around each of the products like which appears on the standard front page new products or front page featured products? I am thrown off because this carousel add on is structured differently with a "slides" class where it would normally be thumbnail class so not sure where I can make this change. The front page add-ons are exceptional and I am grateful that you took the time to put these together for our benefit. Peter
  12. Hi Gary, I think you have a great selection of themes. They are very professional and the prices are more than reasonable. Peter
  13. Solved. I contacted the hosting provider and they 'resynced' my MySQL password (whatever that means) and it appears to have fixed the issue. Peter
  14. Hi there, It has been a little while since I last posted and I feel guilty that my first post is a request for help not the other way around... My website has been functioning perfectly for several months. Just 2 days or so ago the following error popped up at the top of the screen. I have not made any changes to my website for some time so this error is quite unexpected. As a result of this error you cannot even add something to the cart. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Is it possible that my hosting providers in their infinite wisdom have upgraded their mysql version without advising me and if so, how would I go about fixing it? Warning: mysqli_connect(): Headers and client library minor version mismatch. Headers:50545 Library:50635 in /home/[username]/public_html/includes/functions/database.php on line 20Warning: session_start(): Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by (output started at /home/[username]/public_html/includes/functions/database.php:20) in /home/anc10699/public_html/includes/functions/sessions.php on line 95Warning: session_start(): Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /home/[username]/public_html/includes/functions/database.php:20) in /home/anc10699/public_html/includes/functions/sessions.php on line 95 Thanks! Peter
  15. Forgot to update - website is up and running. Just over 2 days offline in total. In the war which took place on the hosting providers' twitter page is an important lesson about public relations and keeping your customers updated.
