    Email problems OSCOM CE Phoenix v1.0.5.7

    I have the same problem! Is someone going to answer what is up with the email problems?!
  2. Hello. I have installed oscommerce many times, and have got all to work. I just installed the newest phoenix version for a new client. It looks and works great. BUT... I am having email issues. When I use another address and sign up as a customer and make a purchase, I see paypal notifications to me as client and store owner. So that works. But as a client, I never receive a store email receipt. As the shop owner, I never get an email notice that a purchase was made so I can fulfill an order. I have used 3 different email address for: 1 store owner, and 2 "send extra order emails". Nothing comes to any inboxes. The weird part is, if you sign up as a new customer, you get the welcome email. And update a status of an order, I get a client email notification of that. What could possibly be wrong? Here is some extra info: Host gator linux hosting. Tried outlook and web clients and searched through spam/junk folders. I am at wits end with this and could really use some help. Phoenix store software version
  3. I turned on downloads and do not see it as an option when making a new product.
  4. Hello. I am making an OScommerce store for a restaurant. They are selling hats, shirts, etc. Now they want a way to sell gift cards on OScommerce and the purchaser downloads and prints something out and brings to restaurant for purchases. Is there any kind of contribution like that? I am trying to install a couple of gift card add-ons, but I don't think they will work.

    Packing slip auto email?

    Is there any way to have the packing slip for an order auto emailed to an email address of your choice? You would think that would be a built in feature. Is there any contribution for that? I searched, but did not come up with anything.
  6. Hackers are a pain!

  7. Hello, I like your contribution a lot. But I added "contrib_XPricesPerProduct_1.0_1" first for multiple pricing (wholesale, etc.) Then when I went to add your contribution, some .php pages that needed to be altered had already been altered, so I needed to keep and not replace. Anyway, after a lot of hunting and replacing etc. I got both contributions to work together nicely. I just get a weird comment in the admin section in the catagories file, I believe. It says additional images under the catagories and has this text: "Warning: Variable passed to each() is not an array or object in /home/scottrez/public_html/shop/admin/categories.php on line 1259" I have included images below: What file do you think I need to edit? Should I post it here to view? Maybe you have a way I could narrow it down...

    Help with shipping issues

    Hello. I setup and alter osCommerce quite often. I have successfully used modules quite frequently. But one of my customers wants free shipping for the "Jewelry" catagory on orders over $100.00. I tried 2 modules. The first one, is known as "disable shipping option" and asks to be placed in line 80 of the shipping module php page you want to use it in. I chose flat rate. I get errors like this: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_IF, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/flagjewl/public_html/shoponline/includes/modules/shipping/flat.php on line 80 The other module is known as "free shipping by cats v1.3". This one requires change to 3 or more pages. Has anyone had success with this one, as I feel intimidated now to mess with 3 or 4 pages for one module. I want to finish this job and shipping is all that holds me back. I am sick of working on this job. These 2 modules (In my opinion) should be standard includes with the osCommerce install as many people will need such a feature. Can any one offer advice. tomw@designalot.com .

    No Shipping, Only Pickup

    It appears that phone numbers just don't come in with the emails when people order. Is there a way to add an email text field that customer can fill out while still skipping shipping and tax appears on orders? Maybe this is a tall order....

    No Shipping, Only Pickup

    I went into tax classes and there is no way to apply to all zones. It is applied to Florida, but even a Florida customer gets no tax when all items are taxable. Which preference am I supposed to set this at?

    No Shipping, Only Pickup

    I was looking for a way to skip the shipping completely, and found a write up on how to do it. But when I made this change, I no longer got state tax added at the confirmation step of the checkout. Or a phone number in the email order. I put original code back in, and tax was back but so was shipping. Any better ways to pull of no shipping, or an edit to this code perhaps? Here is the code - To lose all shipping verbage, make sure item weight is set to 0. Then, In 'checkout_shipping.php' find the lines here: (Line 50) // if the order contains only virtual products, forward the customer to the billing page as // a shipping address is not needed if (($order->content_type == 'virtual') || ($order->content_type == 'virtual_weight')) { if (!tep_session_is_registered('shipping')) tep_session_register('shipping'); $shipping = false; $sendto = false; tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PAYMENT, '', 'SSL')); } $total_weight = $cart->show_weight(); $total_count = $cart->count_contents(); And replace with this: // IFD MOD_SQUAD BEGIN: zero weight should skip shipping page $total_weight = $cart->show_weight(); $total_count = $cart->count_contents(); // if the order contains only virtual products, forward the customer to the billing page as // a shipping address is not needed if (($order->content_type == 'virtual') || ($order->content_type == 'virtual_weight') || ($total_weight == 0 )) { if (!tep_session_is_registered('shipping')) tep_session_register('shipping'); $shipping = false; $sendto = false; tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PAYMENT, '', 'SSL')); } // IFD MOD_SQUAD BEGIN ;)
