    .htaccess problem

    the last step of installing Ultimate SEO is to add a few lines of code into your main .htaccess for cacheing purposes, well after adding the code the contribution works great, but after altering the .htaccess my Microsoft Frontpage doesnt connect to my server. im guessing Frontpage uses the .htaccess for rules and auth. so after adding the lines of code, it no longer works. when i take out the code, it starts working again but the site no longer works due to caching problems. does anyone know of a solution to fix Frontpage. by the way i have reinstalled the frontpage extensions and that does solve it. thanks
  3. This script is awsome. i have a few questions for those that are dedicated to this script and this thread. I tried to PM Chemo and it looks like he has been banned, anyone know about that? also, everything went smoothly and i installed the script perfectly, except for one little problem, when updating the .htaccess file, Microsoft Frontpage becomes unaccessable and cannot connect with my server. the moment i remove the lines from .htaccess, frontpage starts working again. I am guessing the lines you must add to the .htaccess are interfiering with frontpage extensions, does anyone have a fix for this? i have read this in this thread but really havent found a concrete answer, but is it true that using the rewrite method slows down the server and the average page response time? the older versions of this contribution worked with cname instead of rewrite and it stated in the older contributions install file that the rewrite is a slower method by a few milliseconds. DO you think this contributions advantages out weigh the slower page displays, my answer is yes only because it is a concrete contribution, and all of todays leading online markets are usiing this method, but what you do you think? Where has Chemo gone?
  4. im about to launch my site but spoke to my bookkeeper and he said that since my business is based in california, i must tax all california residents (simple enough). one of the first things i did was erase all zones, tax zones, classes, basically everything under locations/tax. can someone walk me through exactly how to charge californians sales tax of 8.25%. i have tried everything. i actually got it working but in a weird way. when you first click on "create account" and you fill in all your information, the state field is just a field and not a pull down menu. when you fill in all your information and lets say you put in a email that already exsists so it comes back to the same page telling you to change the email address, but now the state part has a pull down menu and the list is whats listed under the "Zones" in the admin area. i checked out the create_account.php and targeted the part that takes care of this <?php if ($process == true) { if ($entry_state_has_zones == true) { $zones_array = array(); $zones_array[] = array('id' => '', 'text' => ''); $zones_query = tep_db_query("select zone_name from " . TABLE_ZONES . " where zone_country_id = '" . (int)$country . "' order by zone_name"); while ($zones_values = tep_db_fetch_array($zones_query)) { $zones_array[] = array('id' => $zones_values['zone_name'], 'text' => $zones_values['zone_name']); } echo tep_draw_pull_down_menu('state', $zones_array); } else { echo tep_draw_input_field('state'); } } else { echo tep_draw_input_field('state'); } if (tep_not_null(ENTRY_STATE_TEXT)) echo ' <span class="inputRequirement">' . ENTRY_STATE_TEXT; ?> basically the first time you fill out the page it refers to the else, but if you make a mistake and it brings you back, it gives you the drop down menu. im pretty sure i have confused people and i bet no one is really reading this, but if you can help me out with one answer to my questions answer this, when you manually type in what state you live in, what if you type in ca instead of california, how does the script know that you are referring to california, and is there a way to making the state selection a drop down menu like the country list. thanks for anyone that has read this
  5. For some reason, tax and the attributes are not being added to the total. i have checked all settings and tried every combination of tax zones, and different attributes and it just doesnt affect the total. any one got a clue?

    RMA Returns error for 2.2 MS2

    I installed 2.5h and it all worked well from what i saw (the admin part of it was working correctly) but when i placed a fake order, and then logged on into my account and went to return the product, it went to the RMA page but the thing is im using CRE LOADED and there is a template installed. i think it has to do with creloaded and its template system. can somebody help?

    DHL Shipping Module

    ok, if i dont want quotes i dont need a shipping module. but is there a script that will automatically create a shipment directly with DHLs website after a customer has put in there order and it has been approved by me. also after creating a new order with DHL, then create a shipping label. what is my best bet? to get a script that will take care of it all if there is one, or get one that does labels, and get one that does automatic shipment creations. the most important part is creating a shipment directly with DHL after the customers credit card has been approved.

    DHL Shipping Module

    Thank you all for reading this and any comments will be appriciated. I will be shipping via DHL but i have noticed that the stock oscommerce modules dont have a DHL module installed. this is my situation, i will be offering free shipping to all my customers and all my products. i dont really need a calculator, i just want to know if it is possible for oscommerce to actually create a DHL shippment directly after the order has been placed or approved or what not. is there something that can also automatically create a shipping label. where would i find such a script. i looked in the contribution section but there is nothing for DHL, and when u search for DHL it comes back with results of Airborne express. any help would be great. thank you for ur time
