    Thanks for this, I will definitely give it a go when I get some time and report back. Peter.
  2. @swguy Excellent and thank you!
  3. @ecartz Great answer. I am bookmarking this one as it will come in handy in future. Peter
  4. You can set up permanent redirects to the new pages as well to tell Google the pages have moved if you are worried about losing page rank etc. I'm not best placed to advise on this and there others on this forum more qualified than I to answer this question. If you google this, you should come across some strategies which may help. Peter
  5. @Philo2005 Sure, In includes/languages/german/modules/boxes/bm_information.php Add angebot under Contact Us, or wherever you wish it to appear in the links e.g. const MODULE_BOXES_INFORMATION_BOX_DATA = array( 'privacy.php' => 'Privacy Notice', 'conditions.php' => 'Conditions of Use', 'shipping.php' => 'Shipping & Returns', 'contact_us.php' => 'Contact Us', 'angebot.php' => 'Unser Angebot' Peter
  6. @puggybelle I do not follow your logic at all. @burt has made point releases available in between major releases. Point releases are minor releases. His making them publicly available in between more major releases is a benefit, not a detriment to shop owners. You can choose to ignore these point releases and wait for more major releases instead i.e. 1.03.0, when that arrives some time in the future. Whether you choose to keep your store updated for each point release or not is completely up to you. I'm not sure what you are asking here - for burt to stop making point releases available and instead only the major releases? Why, when you get both! The power is in your hands to choose whether you update your store as updates are available, or wait until a bigger release. @kgtee That is not exactly accurate, but I ought to have explained it better. Supporters get early access to new point releases for e.g testing purposes. Again, up to shop owners if they wish to become supporters and get early access. It is optional, not mandatory. Peter

    Understood. I'm unable to assist on the coding front, perhaps someone with greater knowledge can. May I suggest this excellent add on by @Demitry which achieves the tracking functionality (but not the update field on input you are perhaps seeking). I installed it myself this week. It works perfectly, it is very simple, with some very basic core-code changes, which are appropriately commented by the author so you can easily reverse them later should you choose to uninstall: https://apps.oscommerce.com/S5MrB&order-tracking-for-bs Peter
  8. @puggybelle Hi Andrea, Phoenix is a fully-functional product based on a code base that has evolved over many many years. I am using it (as others are) for my live shop. Point releases are optional and you can wait for more significant releases instead (i.e. 1.3.0) but I would always recommend keeping your shop software up to date. It us up to you when you update. I reckon I am forced to install updates to Windows / MacOS /iOS and other software on my mac, work pc and iphone almost every week. If you sometimes hit the equivalent of the ‘Snooze’ button you can install later but at your own risk of missing out on improved features and addressing security risks. Properly maintained software gets maintained, and we are fortunate to count on @burt to not just do that, whilst improving the code base. The number of point releases should be seen as being directly proportionate to the level of support Phoenix is getting (at no charge to shopowners). This should give your greater comfort, not cause for concern. I wouldn’t want to invest in a shop whose software gets touched only once a year or less frequently
  9. Happy to help! and if you have not yet installed Phoenix, or upgraded to it from an earlier version of osCommerce, I strongly recommend it. Note the latest public release is 1.02.5. The current release (early access available to Phoenix Supporters only) is 1.02.7 (1.02.8 being worked on currently). The latest versions introduce significant refinements of the checkout pages. Here is the announcements page: Also, make sure to consider joining the Phoenix Club. In there you will find details on how to become a Phoenix Supporter, which for a very reasonable donation (to advance the code) gives you early access to new releases and exclusive access to professionally modules, which will enhance your store at a fraction of the cost of what you would pay someone to code them for you. All the best and good luck with your project! Peter
  10. @theozsnowman Welcome to the forum! The responsive admin release worked perfectly for me when I tested it recently with Phoenix. You can actually install it into a different admin folder, change includes / configure.php (within that admin folder) to point to the different admin directory, and have 2 admins, one bootstrapped, and one that standard, to compare the two. The limitation is that modules you add are not themselves bootstrapped, so you would need to modify them when you add them to your admin. Personally, I tested it out of curiosity, then went back to the standard one, as I found it original admin displays much better on a computer and I do not use my mobile routinely for admin duties. Peter
  11. Hi David, As an alternative suggestion, why don't you add these as pages to your shop instead to create a more seamless experience for your customer? Everything I can see in the link provided can be added to your Phoenix shop. I'm assuming it would be beneficial to keep your customers in your shop environment. it is easy to add new pages to the shop, just: 1. Copy a simple page(e.g. conditions.php) and its corresponding language file. 2. Rename the page to what you want to call it. 3. Change all references in the files from the name of the old file (e.g. conditions), to the new one. 4. Add content. You probably only need to modify the language file to do this. Peter

    'Account limit reached' - where is this coming from?

    I'm glad you found the cause of the problem. 👍 Regards, Peter
  15. Try the fix recommended in that post - uninstall the offending modules from admin and reinstall. Peter
  16. @Owl Sauron Hi Luis, I think you are using an earlier version of Phoenix as the products page does not link to the latest version. See this topic which explains the issue about halfway down the page: The latest public release of Phoenix is 1.02.5. Supporters have early access to 1.02.7 which introduces some fairly neat changes. Make sure to consider joining the Phoenix Club and become an supporter to get early access as well as exclusive supporters code. Also make sure to follow the Phoenix announcements page. it is not pinned unfortunately so easily missed: @burt @Harald Ponce de Leon Please may we update the Phoenix Products page to link to the current release.

    'Account limit reached' - where is this coming from?

    Hi Andrea, I found your site and was able to create 2 x accounts (called 'test delete' and 'test delete2') successfully. Regards, Peter

    KissIT Image Thumnailer

    @dculley I'm not sure I follow. When you click on the images, are you are saying they disappear completely? The infobox above is an instruction not a warning. It tells you how to set the width of content modules to help you set the layout of the page. 12 means it takes up an entire row. 6 means half a row etc. It is unrelated to the issues you are having.

    KissIT Image Thumnailer

    @dculley Works perfectly fine for me on my live Phoenix shop. I just installed it on a fresh version of Phoenix and works fine also. Check your small image size. You decreased it to 80 H x 100 W from the default 250 x 250 . Fairly certain that is what is causing the issue. I have replicated your issue on my install by using your small image size. Peter

    Date entered on product copy is wrong.

    Also, make sure when copying the products that you do not have the 'link products' option selected (unless you want to link products) as they will have the same date added. Peter
  21. Hi Tony, Unfortunately it looks like this particular add on is no longer actively supported by its author. So you might not get much luck unless someone familiar with the add on is in a position to post and help. I do not believe there is a functioning eBay manager add on that is freely available. My quick google searches indicate that there may be some available commercially but I am not in a position to verify this or to confirm whether they would work. If this add on important to you, it might be worth posting in the commercial enquiries section of the forum in case someone is able to assist you. On a related subject, if and when you consider upgrading your website, I would encourage you to consider the latest version of osCommerce, Phoenix 1.02.5. Please see the following announcement:
