  1. Thanks Jack and I've not seen a commercial area so will try to track it down.
  2. Thanks @Jack_mcs, You are definitely giving wise advice. My issue is that (a) I don't have the skills to migrate and upgrade myself, (b) it's a small business website so needs to remain operational and (c) I wouldn't know where to look for someone capable to carry out and support the upgrades. I've been with osC MS2.2 since around 2005 and have always loved it so contemplating a move is traumatic to say the least! Paul
  3. Thank you both for your comments and information.Really helpful. As much as I love my old osC site and CE is appealing, it actually sounds as though it could be time to move on to a new site and a new platform. Thank you again. Paul
  4. Hi, I have a long standing osCommerce 2.2-MS2 site that over time was pretty heavily modified. Is it possible somehow to make this site responsive so that its suitable for use on tablets and mobile devices? I'm really not keen to have to migrate to a new platform but these days responsive is becoming important. Many thanks for any input or suggestions. Paul

    Shop redirect, htaccess

    Hi, Thank you for the help so far - I am eternally grateful! I think I'm really close and after some input from the webhosts have the following: #redirect index.php to root #RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /index\.php\ HTTP/ #RewriteRule ^index\.php$ https://www.martinberrillsports.com/ [R=301,L] #redirect non-www to www #RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^martinberrillsports\.com #RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.martinberrillsports.com/$1 [R=permanent,L] RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{ENV:HTTPS} !=on RewriteRule ^.*$ https://www.%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L] The only remaining problem seems to be that http://www.martinberrillsports.com redirects to https://www.www.martinberrillsports.com. Please can anyone see which redirect is causing this and how to correct? Many thanks in advance. Paul

    Shop redirect, htaccess

    Thank you for spotting the missing ".". I have checked and it definitely should be Port 80 but when added this seems to "break" the site.

    Shop redirect, htaccess

    Hi, Yes I did current extract from .htaccess is: RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteRule ^(.*)-p-(.*).html$ product_info.php?products_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-c-(.*).html$ index.php?cPath=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} RewriteRule ^(.*)-m-(.*).html$ index.php?manufacturers_id=$2&%{QUERY_STRING} #redirect index.php to root RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /index\.php\ HTTP/ RewriteRule ^index\.php$ https://www.martinberrillsportscom/ [R=301,L] #redirect non-www to www RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^example\.com RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.martinberrillsports.com/$1 [R=permanent,L] However adding this next bit results in website not loading / crashing. RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.martinberrillsports.com/$1 [R,L] Thank you. Paul

    Shop redirect, htaccess

    Thank you for all of the help and I'm making progress. Howwever when I add the following to my .htaccess file the site crashes. RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.martinberrillsports.com/$1 [R,L] I also tried a condition from whynopadlock.com (below) and this also crashed my site. Am I doing something wrong and is the {SERVER_PORT} 80 significant in this in some way? RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} martinberrillsports\.com [NC] RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.martinberrillsports.com/$1 [R,L] Thanks in advance again. I'm very grateful for the input and help! Paul

    Moving from HTTP to HTTPS

    Thank you all for the comments. When I made the changes to the catalog/includes/configure file when the site went to checkout the pages lost all CSS, images and layout (as enclosed). Is this because I still need to make the changs to .htaccess? Thanks in advance. Paul

    Moving from HTTP to HTTPS

    Hi, With news, rumors and articles suggesting that Google is starting to de-rank sites that are not HTTPS across the entire site I just want to double check how I do this. I currently have an SSL in place so is it simply a question of amending the 2 configure.php files on the admin and frontend? Any pointers would be very gratefully received! Paul

    Manual Order Maker

    I installed this contribution after Order Editor and had a similar problem to a number of others. Upon creating a customer or selecting an existing customer and clicking on "Save" on the create_order.php page I would be taken to the create_order_process.php page which was blank. The fix in my case was to copy the password_funcs.php page from includes/functions/ to admin/includes/functions/ All works!

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    Although this thread is looking as though it gets very few visitors, I just wanted to post my solution to the problem (5.09 not working with PHP5.3) Having investigated with my host and an expert coder, no solution could be found. Therefore I went back to basics, uninstalled the contribution and then re-installed version 2.8.2 (link below) http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/1435 It works perfectly and I can always work thrugh the modifications since this older version to make any changes later. However for anyone having a problem with 5.0.9 on a PHP5.3 server then this may help! Paul

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    I have just installed 5.0.9 from scratch, uploaded the files and made the necessary amends. However, when I click on the edit button I receive a blank page (error 500). If I enter an incorrect order number I can see that the page is available and working due to the "Error: Order 4251 does not exist." I am running osC 2.2-MS2 with PHP5.3.10 and wonder if the PHP version may be the issue. I have scoured dozens of pages through the forum where there is a reference to blank pages but so far no luck. Has anyone come across this problem or can anyone poiunt me in the right direction please? Many thanks. Paul
