    Marketplace Category/Version Cleanup

    Hi Harald Ponce de Leon, Welcome back to oscommerce. I hope you have understood that your next version of oscommerce must be a responsive version? In the meanwhile please remove the old non-responsive version and upload a responsive demo of oscommerce on this website: https://demo.oscommerce.com My suggestion is that you put up this version on your demo site: "osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.4.1 CE" Frozen https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/archive/2341-Frozen.zip This is the best responsive oscommerce platform that is working and there is also many addons (contributions) made for this version. For every minute your old demo of a NON-responsive oscommerce is showing on https://demo.oscommerce.com/ means that oscommerce is still dead and not updated so my suggestion is that you fix this as soon as possible and this will bring back people from all around the globe to the best open source e-commerce platform ever made. The most fantastic thing is that while you had your vacation from oscommerce, programmers continued to develop oscommerce to keep it alive. Many thanks to all programmers that have kept oscommerce alive during your vacation.
  2. Hi MrPhil, thank you for your reply. This sounds very very very interesting. Regarding manual decisions, I set a % markup for each category and does not need to set a % markup for each product. On some special products that I would like to have a very competitive price on, then I always set a low % markup for each of these products. Regarding categorizing new products I do this manually because I do not know any other way to do it.
  3. Hi Gyakutsuki, thank you for your reply. This sounds interesting but can you be more specific to tell me what apps I need to be able to update products, prices and number in stock automatically that is compatible with my oscommerce version Frozen https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/archive/2341-Frozen.zip Installed Version: osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.4.1 CE Odoo.com have many apps: https://www.odoo.com/pricing and when I click on the e-commerce app there is 3 apps marked automatically. As I understand from this it seem to be working only with Odoo.com own webshop and not for oscommerce?
  4. Hi Smoky Barnable, thank you for your reply. Regarding your advice to use this module: https://apps.oscommerce.com/YfzFh&alternative-administration-system-v0-3 I have been reading about this module and I think the developer of this module have made an incredible good module with all the these features. Almost too good to be true. If I did not watch the demonstration movie on youtube I would not belive it was true. Alternative Administration System Version: 0.3, Created by John Barounis , www.alternative-administration-system.com I just say amazing work this developer have done when he created this module. But will it function with my oscommerce reponsive version? My installed Version: osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.4.1 CE Frozen https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/archive/2341-Frozen.zip I think this module is more of the kind of module I am looking for to solve my issue to keep the stock and prices updated. The function I miss with this module is that it does not automatically add new products. https://apps.oscommerce.com/EhAln&get-price-quantity-xml-update-feed-v2-1 This is how I work now to add products in short terms: I use FileZilla https://filezilla-project.org/ to download the pricefile in .txt or .csv format from the distributor. Then I open the pricefile in Excel. Then I add a number of columns to be able to calculate prices to end consumers. This takes very long time to do with 22 000 products. A smart software that would help me to mass change prices in procent and in my currency SEK and in a certain category would help a lot. Of course this can be done in Excel but first I have to sort all products in the correct categorys and to do this takes very much time. And next day the distributor have added a couple of hundred new products and no category to be found. Then new headache to start to categorize all new products to the correct category. Some smart software to mass sort products into the correct category would help. Then I make new prices for the end consumer and make sure that the stock values are added and all other information like product descriptions and much more. Then I import the file with Easy Populate into my webshop. The highest wishlist is to have a connection in real time to the distributor to keep products and stock and prices updated but there need to be a step in between so that I can add my prices to the endconsumer. I can also connect to the distributor via api solution and get an .xml file of all the products. Maybe someone on this forum have any solution on how to make all this work in a much more easy and time saving way?
  5. Hi Gyakutsuki, thank you for your reply. I can not find any product from Odoo here https://www.odoo.com/ that will update stock and prices automatically. Perhaps I am looking at the wrong website?
  6. Hi JcMagpie, thank you for your reply. I will have a look at your module link you sent me.
  7. Hi MrPhil, thank you for your reply. I have already installed Easy Populate and many thanks to JcMagpie who have helped me to get Easy Populate to function with my installed version FROZEN: osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.4.1 CE With Easy Populate I can import many thousand products to my webshop. When having more than 15 000 products in a webshop it is a must to have some form of automatic update of stock quantity, prices and products. And when categorizing all the products in Excel and then when supplier changes prices and add new products it is a must to have a tool to update this automatically. I can get the pricelist from the distributor/supplier in .xls or in .xml format. Is there someone who have buillt a module for automatic updating stock and prices and products from the distributor/supplier? I have found this module that is interesting: https://apps.oscommerce.com/EhAln&get-price-quantity-xml-update-feed-v2-1 Is this module working for my installed version FROZEN: osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.4.1 CE ?
  8. Is there a module for automatic updating stock, products and prices? Example one distributor have around 22 000 products and the other distributor have more than 40 000 products. With so many products it is not so easy to update products, prices and how many in stock and product pictures. Perhaps there is some software module or modules to make this job more easy to update all the products?

The online update packages for v5.011 and v5.014 contained a hardcoded "admin/" path to update the "admin/paypal.php" file - if a custom administration directory name is used, please delete the "admin/" directory, this should only contain one "paypal.php" file which the v5.011 and v5.014 online update packages created. v5.018 (12 Mar 2017) Express Checkout: Allow a custom stylesheet to be loaded to help with the styling and positioning of the checkout buttons shown on the shopping cart page.

  10. How to install Paypal to Frozen osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.4.1 CE
  11. I have now succeded to uninstall this module. Now I will try to install your new multilanguage module.
  12. Normally I always copy the english language folder and then rename it to swedish but in this module you have made this is not that easy. I have installed JcM Product info description_tabs CE version from 9th January 2019 So how do I add my language to this module you have made? In catalog-includes-languages-english-modules-content-product_info I can see this file in the folder product_info: cm_pi_description_tabs And this is how it looks like when I open this file: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- <?php /* Copyright (c) 2018, Z Iqbal based on code Copyright (c) 2018, G Burton All rights reserved.

I belive every person who lives in a country that english is not the main language would like to have the tabs in their own countrys language? So if you guide me how I can change the tabs text to swedish language on the swedish page and so that the tabs in english language remain on the english page I am very interested to try to do this.
  13. My site is still under development. I have not added product descriptions in english language yet I have already understood that your module was not multilanguage module. I hope that you or some other developer can make this module multilanguage compatibel because I belive I am not alone using your module with tabs and would like to translate the text in the tabs to other languages than english language? It is a great module and for my need even better if it gets multilanguage compatible.
  14. When I change language on the tabs to swedish language then it also changes to swedish on the tabs on the english page. I want the swedish language on the tabs for swedish pages and english language on the tabs for english pages. How may I solve this issue?
