    After spending many days (weeks, months, whatever!!) trying to get this damned thing working I gave up and chucked it out the window. I tried CCC (Custom Computer Creator) and spent some hours trying to get that working too. It showed a lot more potential but I quickly realised that the *dependancy* factor is non existent. There are other issues with this mod (CCC) that I think people are deliberately sidestepping (i.e. the radio buttons with images problem). And I'm not about to throw $200 at it to make it right - or even become a JAVA guru to prove that I can do it myself. The vision and foundation of Oscommerce is open-source, its critical success factor is in the mission statement "individual commitment to a group effort". I am a proud and avid supporter of Oscommerce (and its philosophy), even though I haven't contributed much I have helped certain local and international people with their sites. I have spent an incredible amount of time on my site(s) and I refuse to hoard any of my source code, I have learnt so much from this "group effort" that it's only a pleasure for me to offer assistance wherever I can. Although I won't code for anyone for free I will however offer my source codes for free to help people to help themselves. Okay, so I ditched CCC because it doesn't work properly and the support for it went pear-shaped, whether deliberate or not I don't care - it's too much work to get it where I need it to be. I've now gone full-circle now, back to this contrib (PC Pro Creator) and made a deliberate effort to "decipher" it, simply to prove that CCC isn't the be-all and end-all of online PC Builders for Oscommerce. This is what I have discovered about this (PC Pro Creator) contrib: The *dependancy* does work. The spanish instruction "Agregar Relacion" (on the 'edit products page' in admin) I have renamed temporarily to "Select Category and Product then click here to Apply Dependance". Then for "Eliminor" I have renamed to "Click here to remove Dependance". As you apply dependances you will see a list of then forming on the 'edit products page' - its not beautiful but for now it works. The Assembly Fees issue does actually work... the authors instruction is not only confusing but also a complete lie. To get it working you need to create a new product category off the root (or "top") and then in there add your assembly fee(s) as if they (or it) are products. Then it gets a bit technical... you need to look at your tables (with phpMyAdmin for example), locate the categories_description table and browse it, locate the category that you've created for Assembly Fees and make a note of the catgories_id (a number). Then locate the file prduct_listing.php (in the catalog root) and open it for editing, look for the following line (near the end): $c_query = tep_db_query("select products_id from products_to_categories where categories_id='33'"); .... yes!!!.. it's HARD CODED!!!!!???, so change the 33 to the number you noted from your categories_id in your categories_description table, save the change and test the builder - you'll see that the assembly fees are now listed. That's all I have for now - the fact that these two (important) issues are working gives me hope for this contrib. There's still a lot of cosmetic work to do, I've already thrown the stylesheets away, making good progress now to get this thing to "look" like it belongs on my site. I will try my best to keep coming back to this forum to answer questions (for help) about my "workarounds" for Dependancy and Assembly Fees.

    [Contribution] FCKosc 2.2 Support

    oops!! ... I made a small mistake on the original FCKeditor FIX I posted... it's not FCKCONFIG.ASP, but rather FCKCONFIG.JS that must be changed. :blush: ..... the corrected instruction as follows: In catalog/admin/fckeditor/fckconfig.js *** FIND: // Custom implementations should just ignore it. var _FileBrowserLanguage = 'asp' ; // asp | aspx | cfm | lasso | perl | php | py var _QuickUploadLanguage = 'asp' ; // asp | aspx | cfm | lasso | php *** CHANGE TO: // Custom implementations should just ignore it. var _FileBrowserLanguage = 'php' ; // asp | aspx | cfm | lasso | perl | php | py var _QuickUploadLanguage = 'php' ; // asp | aspx | cfm | lasso | php -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOW, FOR THE BLANK define_mainpage PROBLEM: After playing around on my live site I found that putting the full http: address doesn't work.... Try this: In /catalog/admin/includes/functions/html_output.php: $oFCKeditor -> BasePath = '/catalog/admin/fckeditor/'; :thumbsup: You're so close now !! - don't give up.

    [Contribution] FCKosc 2.2 Support

    Just checking.... you have downloaded FCKeditor 2.3.1 from fckeditor.net, deleted the old one that comes with FCKosc2.2 (in admin), and then copied in the new one ?

    [Contribution] FCKosc 2.2 Support

    .... and one more thing while I'm thinking of addresses, and a good example ... The default folder you create for your FCK images (according to the instructions in the FCKeditor FIX 2 posts back) will then be addressed as: http;www,yoursite,com/userfiles/ ... and this folder (like I said) needs full RW access especially for FCK image uploads to work. (I hope this clarifies instead of confuses). :huh:

    [Contribution] FCKosc 2.2 Support

    A note about the basepath address in html_output.php (admin) The FCK Editor is independant of OSC, and to run it standalone you simply type in the address (like you would to get into your admin panel), i.e. http;//www,yoursite,com/catalog/admin/fckeditor/fckeditor,php ..... .... there's obviously a bunch of parameters that follow, but you get the picture (literally). :-" So, the basepath address that html_output.php is looking for is the full address of your FCKeditor, i.e. the http address I have just mentioned (without the fckeditor.php on the end of course). This applies only to HTML_OUTPUT.PHP :thumbsup:

    [Contribution] FCKosc 2.2 Support

    Try the following: /catalog/admin/fckeditor/fckeditor.php $this->BasePath = '/fckeditor/' ; I don't see anything about FCKeditor in my admin configuration.php. It may be redundant, but wait until you get FCK running before trying to delete it. /catalog/admin/includes/functions/html_output.php $oFCKeditor -> BasePath = 'http://localhost/catalog/admin/FCKeditor/'; .... OR IF YOU ARE RUNNING LIVE.. (substitute with your address) $oFCKeditor -> BasePath = 'http://www.yoursite.com/catalog/admin/FCKeditor/'; I hope that sorts it for you!!! :thumbsup:

    Thanks SEDef .... for the distress call - who knows when I would have come back here. I'm conquering galaxies by now (psh! - right!!). Sorry folks, while I've been lavishing in the land of FCK I seem to have left my fellow OSCers high and dry. The FCKeditor FIX !! The FCKosc2.2 contribution (http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2987) has a bum-copy of FCKeditor (included in the admin folder) which must be replaced by the latest version of FCKeditor, available from www.fckeditor.net Then, in addition to the FCKosc2.2 contrib instructions, the following steps must be taken to get FCK working properly. In your domain root folder (eg. HTTPDOCS, or wwwroot on localhosts) create a folder named userfiles and allow full RW access. This will be FCK?s default media library, it will store uploaded media objects here. You can also copy your own objects in at a later stage?. once you?ve seen how FCK likes to do things. NOTE: You can change the location of this ?media folder? ? for now let?s stick to the defaults and get it up and running quickly. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SET THE FCK ENVIRONMENT -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In catalog/admin/fckeditor/fckconfig.asp *** FIND: // Custom implementations should just ignore it. var _FileBrowserLanguage = 'asp' ; // asp | aspx | cfm | lasso | perl | php | py var _QuickUploadLanguage = 'asp' ; // asp | aspx | cfm | lasso | php *** CHANGE TO: // Custom implementations should just ignore it. var _FileBrowserLanguage = 'php' ; // asp | aspx | cfm | lasso | perl | php | py var _QuickUploadLanguage = 'php' ; // asp | aspx | cfm | lasso | php -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ENABLE THE FCK BROWSE AND UPLOAD FUNCTIONS -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In catalog/admin/fckeditor/editor/filemanager/browser/default/connectors/php/config.php *** FIND: // SECURITY: You must explicitelly enable this "connector". (Set it to "true"). $Config['Enabled'] = false ; *** CHANGE TO: // SECURITY: You must explicitelly enable this "uploader". $Config['Enabled'] = true ; -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In catalog/admin/fckeditor/editor/filemanager/upload/php/config.php FIND: // SECURITY: You must explicitelly enable this "uploader". $Config['Enabled'] = false ; *** CHANGE TO: // SECURITY: You must explicitelly enable this "uploader". $Config['Enabled'] = true ; -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And that?s basically it... I honestly didn't change anything else in FCKeditor (this time!!) Your main concern when doing the FCKosc 'mod' will be the html_output.php file in admin functions. If you are confused about the basepath address, here is a sample of the code in my html_output file (for my localhost): $oFCKeditor -> BasePath = 'http://localhost/catalog/admin/FCKeditor/'; For my live sites I simply replace localhost with my real wwwdotcom address.

    This is a dead croc. Incomplete installation instructions and incomplete contrib, i.e. completely incomplete. NEWBIES should STEER CLEAR of this one !! Trying for days now to get it 100%, but my PHP knowledge isn't good.

    In addition to this one CONFIG.ASP file, I have found more 'disabled' config files. As soon as I've nailed them all I'll paste the names of the offenders here. What the heck - I'll do my best on revising the entire installation procedure as well.

    [Contribution] FCKosc 2.2 Support

    IMAGES WORKING with FCK Editor 2.2 and OSCommerce - aka. FCKOSC..... I fought with this one - ending up where everyone else did - the 'images problem'. Or more specifically that message about the disabled connector in the asp file (....whatever.... one more nanosecond further away from worth remembering). In the fckeditor/editor/filemanager/browser/default/connectors/asp folder there is a file called CONFIG.ASP - open it and read the first few lines of code - see the SECURITY message - well there it is. Damn - like flicking a switch. After doing this I now have images - can browse the server - create folders - upload. Shweeet!! Cool - it's time to test the Flash support. 10/10 :thumbsup: :thumbsup: - FCK Editor RoXX - when it it worXX !! :D

    FCKosc 2.2

    I have FCK 2.2 installed and running with MS2.2. I ended up using this because the one included with DEFINE_MAINPAGE contribution didn't work for me. (I was probably doing something wrong). In retrospect I would probably install it differently next time (maybe in the admin folder, if it matters), anyway my configuration is as follows: I have FCKEditor in a folder off my root folder (i.e. httpdocs\fckeditor) In the FCKEditor folder there are two files to be edited/checked; FCKEDITOR.JS and FCKEDITOR.PHP - make sure the pathnames are correct. 'localhost' is allowable and works for me. Then there is HTML_OUTPUT.PHP in the admin\includes\functions folder - the path here cannot include 'localhost' , instead use your localhost name, i.e. www.website.com ------------------- Honestly - at the end of the day I ended up installing FCK 2.2 and I followed the DEFINE_MAINPAGE instructions carefully. Not an easy plug-in....... but what a beauty when you've got her running. Only problem I have right now is with the image uploads. Good luck !! - persevere - you won't be disappointed.
  16. I was refering to Post #120 in this support forum ('On The Fly' Auto Thumbnailer using GD Library 2.1)
  17. You hit it on the nail (pardon the pun) - thanks voidstate. I must admit this one had me stumped - I setup my local dev.server last week, and after a bit of a frustrating learning curve I had everything working perfectly - EXCEPT for the thumbnails. Strange was that the full size picture (i.e. click here to enlarge) show perfectly, but no images on any thumbnails - the sizes were right but just no rendering. This fix worked 100% - Thanks a million!!. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: B)

    Just incase anyone wants to know where I'm getting this problem. It's as per the instructions, i.e. in Admin, goto Catalog and then Define Mainpage.

    [Contribution] FCKosc 2.2 Support

    In addition to my previous comments - I have found a clue (or something) when using Firefox, before showing me the blank area I get an error 'd is not a registered protocol'. Note: if I do anything to the path I have already specified for the FCKeditor I get a 404 error, so I'm pretty sure I have the right path.

    [Contribution] FCKosc 2.2 Support

    Same here !! - just getting a blank edit area with 'define_mainpage.php' in the top-left corner. I'm sure I have the correct path to the FCKeditor folder in admin because I was getting a 404 error before. Even tried setting permissions to fckeditor.php - nada !! Is there something I need to download from the FCK website ?? - dunno - I'm about to trash this mod. Terrible installation instructions. What seemed to be a fairly straightforward mod was marred by vagueness. One of the prerequisites is phpMyAdmin, but no SQL changes were required, ?????????? - what do we need phpMyAdmin for then - to backup the database ??? - I do that on a regular basis !! :angry: - wasted my time on this one - maybe not - could it be something simple I have overlooked ??

    Fixed Width with CSS

    Make sure that the </div> is the very last thing in your footer.php (in the includes folder) and not before the last ?>. I hope that helps (although it's been a while since you posted the question).

    Awesome

    I just hate it when this happens - this post was supposed to end up with the support forum regarding the 'Fancier Invoice and Packing slip' contrib. :blush: Here are the links: Support can be found at: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?showtopic=132562 Download From: http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2861

    Awesome

    After a few days of patching this thing in and tweaking it to the way it's supposed to work. :-" - I am officially impressed. Amongst all the hacks and patches I've ever done to my site there are only two 'prize' mods installed... this is one of them. B) Well done (and thanks) to PopTheTop - you deserve all the praise you get. :thumbsup: Thanks to SuperSewest, your suggestions made the invoice problem go away nicely. :thumbsup: To anyone else wanting to plug this one in, especially newbies (like me), I would suggest a strategic approach - it's not for the faint hearted. Read the documentation carefully!!! and don't give up - this is a gem.

    Fancier Invoice & Packingslip v1.0

    Oh Carol (that song just popped into my head now) - BTW: I dig your icon - Futurama rocks!! Okay, one of your suggestions actually did the trick. I tried the style sheet thing, added the class but suddenly realised I don't know how to pull this into my code - I looked at examples and also tried to find the clues in your suggestions - nada. FYI: putting the bgcolor parameter in the <body tag didn't seem to work. BUT THIS LITTLE PIECE OF CODE YOU SUGGESTED WORKED !! - 100% in the /catalog/print_my_invoice.php file just under this piece of code... <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="stylesheet.css"> ...I added..... <style type="text/css"> body {background-color: #FFFFFF;} </style> Bingo. If I knew php well enough I would easily have been able to substitute the body { *stuff* } for the class I created in my stylesheet. Okay, if you insist, show us how easy it is. :D Thanks!! - invoice is perfect.
