    [Contribution] STS v4

    For all of those who have used the modified files straight from the STS folder specifically the "application_top.php" file and are getting SSL errors you need to make one small edit to get rid of the buggy Non-Secure SSL error. 1) Open includes/application_top.php file 2) Find around Line 43 $request_type = (getenv('HTTPS') == 'on') ? 'SSL' : 'NONSSL' 3) Replace with the following // $request_type = (getenv('HTTPS') == 'on') ? 'SSL' : 'NONSSL'; $request_type = (eregi ($HTTP_HOST, HTTPS_SERVER)) ? 'SSL' : 'NONSSL'; I hope this helps everybody who is getting the Non-Secure Errors

    STSv4.5.8 Install Script for Dummies?

    There is no install script nor is there one being planned to the best of my knowledge as to install STS is pretty straight forward. if you have any problems with the install try posting your questions in the STS4 thread.

    New York Sales Tax

    Unless you have locations in all the locations where you are trying to collect tax or your state has reciprocal tax status with these states you do not need to and should not collect tax from all these states. Instate Commerce Clause actually forbids it. I am also based in NYS, you charge everybody the sales tax for your county despite where you are located, it is listed and noted in the NYS State Tax Guide.

    [Contribution] STS v4

    Is there a way to display parts of STS outside of of osC? For instance on my site osC is located at mysite.com/store, I would like to be able to display a feature product as well as the Checkout, My Account and Shopping Cart Items through out my whole site not just in the osC area. I have a section set-up already in my template for this just in case this is possible.
  6. I have this kinda weird problem, in the Admin side at header_tags_english.php, all of the descriptions are not showing up. What I mean by this is the columns where it says allprods, index, product_info I have two options between index and product_info missing. I checked the corresponding file but do not know where to look. Could you point me in the right directions of where I should be looking to correct this problem? Here is a pic of what I am talking about.

    Two STS sites Sharing catalogs

    Search the Contribs as there is a contrib called Multi-Shops or something like that that allows you have to have mutlple stores share the same database but is each store/site is different. and it works with STS. It always allows you to specify if a certain product is displayed on one site or both.

    This Contrib Add Shopping Cart Info to Your Header Contrib 1079 should do the trick, I have it installed on mu site with STS and it works fine, I am in the process of trying to figure out how to make into a link. I have it already for if there is no products in the cart, but can not figure out how to properly get the code so that it is a link if you have items in your cart. http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1079/

    [Contribution] STS v4

    There maybe a really simple solution to this, but I can not figure out how to do this properly. I just added Cart In Header Contrib, and am trying to have the output displayed as a link to the shopping cart page. I have been able to get it to display as a link if there is no items in the cart, but all attempts if there is items in the shopping cart otherwise has been meet with failure. Here is the code inserted into the sts_user_code.php file $sts->start_capture(); $productno = $cart->count_contents(); $totalprice = $currencies->format($cart->show_total()); if ($productno > 1) { echo ENTRY_HCART_CONTAINS; echo " "; echo $productno; echo " "; echo ENTRY_HCART_ITEMS; echo " "; echo " "; echo ENTRY_HCART_PRICE; echo " "; echo $totalprice; } elseif ($productno == 0) { echo ENTRY_HCART_EMPTY; } else { echo ENTRY_HCART_CONTAINS; echo " "; echo $productno; echo " "; echo ENTRY_HCART_ITEM; echo " "; echo " "; echo ENTRY_HCART_PRICE; echo " "; echo $totalprice; } $sts->stop_capture ('headcart'); and this is inserted into the English language file with my one link ENTRY_HCART_EMPTY', '<a href="shopping_cart.php">0 Products $0.00</a>'); define('ENTRY_HCART_CONTAINS', ''Your cart contains:"); define('ENTRY_HCART_ITEM', 'Product'); define('ENTRY_HCART_ITEMS', 'Products'); define('ENTRY_HCART_PRICE', 'Total price:'); I have tried putting link tags around just about everything, but still can not figure it out.

    I hate to repost but was really wondering about this, if something was made for STS v2 in Nov 05, how compatible would it be with STS 4.5.3 for osC RC1? The Contrib in question is Add Shopping Cart Info to Your Header Contrib 1079 http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1079/

    I am really frustrated and disappointed

    What she is talking about is go to your "Admin Panel", and then click on "Tools" and then click "Banner Manager"

    I am really frustrated and disappointed

    LOL... yeah that was an easy one, I just went through all 118 pages of the manual and was readinng through post and the license that came with osC. Well it looks like your fine, you can leave off the "powered by oscommerce"
  14. Eighteen48

    I am really frustrated and disappointed

    What he is talking about now is the documentation stating that removing the "powered by oscommerce" will viod his version and basically he will not get any support. He did not ignore your post.

    oscommerce-2.2rc1's version of ipn.php

    Okay sorry about this, the 1.4 and 2.2 is the different version of Paypal IPN, check out this page http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2679/ it shows all the version of Paypal IPN basically each one you see is an improvement over the other with the assumption the number is higher. Kinda like Windows XP, you have Windows XP, then XP SP1 (Service Pack 1) and then XP SP2 (Service Pack 2) with Windows XP SP2 being the most stable and best version of the three. As for if Google checkout will give paypal a run for its money I think so, especially since for owners of store who use it and Google adverstising gets discounts and such. All ads by someone who offers Google Checkout will also state that in the ads. It has a lot going for it if they can get all the kinks worked out. I am not going to be putting together a contrib together as my knowledge is very small, I can get by and fix most errors i get, but that is about it. Google already has put out their official contrib for osC which can be downloaded from here or their site as well as, plus there is also another contrib out there and maybe another on the way. So I guess as they say only time will tell.

    oscommerce-2.2rc1's version of ipn.php

    From what I gathered was if you was to upgrade or integrate any of the other Paypal modules the best to use for the easiest integration is 1.4 and not Terra's 2.2 and that was coming from Terra herself. They are different projects, but I think they may conflict with each other or something, I have not messed around with this yet as I am working on other contributions to get my site the way I want it first customer side and then i will work on the other side of things including trying to integrate one of the Paypal modules as well as the Google Checkout Module. I think our best bet is to search the official thread and go from there, as even though I am not sure which version of IPN I am going to use, I am leaning towards Terras. Hopefully somebody else has asked the same question.

    I do not remember where at exactly I seen it, but there is documentation somehwere, I will search further for it.

    oscommerce-2.2rc1's version of ipn.php

    I asked asked a similar question when RC1 was first released, here is what I got. Hope this helps, as i still have not activated IPN or upgraded to a newer version, your best bet is to probably post in the official IPN thread and they would be able to help you with any problems you come across while upgrading to RC1

    Not to be a stick in the mud, but because you post in the wrong section is the reason why your post went unanswered. Second, removing the link to osCommerce actually violates the terms and agreement of osC and GNL or whatever it is called, and once removed you will not be given any support until it is put back on. If you want to change the look and feel of your store with little headaches and have it the way you really want it i would suggest you download the STS contrib. As to the side topic that is going on, there are less ppl who are willing to help others who need the help then what there use to be. There are some members who feel that becasue the person does not know PHP its their fault and wont lift a finger. While there has been others who when they get the chance do offer their support and help when they can. What some of you must realize, is this site has thousands if not millions of ppl registered here, and then you have thousands of posts being posted, and while some may be repeated questions, you have to realize not everyone understands exactly what is going on. For instance when I first joined here, I have read all the documentation on how to change the layout of osC, and design basics, but it left me clueless, so i posted. Even commented in my post that I read the osC manual and all the stuff online and am still lost. I got a snippy response back from a regular member oh it is easy and then refered me back to the design Basics thread, which was not any help for me to begin with. People have to remember that there is a lot of ppl who needs put in laymen terms and or spelled out, just refering to a post or giving a quick answer does not always help. And for the record, things have been on a decline in knowledgeable ppl here, heck I would easily bet that half if not more than half of the contributions here there is no support for as their creators have gone on to something else. which is understandable, but that is also a reason why post go unanswered.

    [Contribution] STS v4

    The file “catalog/includes/modules/sts_inc/sts_user_code.php” is made for your own user tags. Put the tags that you create yourself in this file. You can also create a new file in the same folder, create the tags in this new file and configure the STS modules to include this file. The “sts_user_code.php” already contains one tag:

    It is kinda hard for us to help when we do not know the error your getting as well as if you are using any pop-up image contributions with your store.

    Hi Bill, Sorry to pester you again, but I was wondering if something was made for STS Plus back in Jun 06 or STS v2 in Nov 05, how compatible would it be with STS 4.5.3 for osC RC1? The Contrib in question is Add Shopping Cart Info to Your Header Contrib 1079 http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1079/

    [Contribution] STS v4

    I have done this myself thinking I wanted this not fully HTC at the time but after installing the changes realize I did not need or want this. I had no problems with the code Bill provided. May I suggest you download the actual HTC contrib and follow the instructions in th.at

    [Contribution] Additional Images Module

    But would you say that Additional Images 2.0.0 works out of the box with osC RC1? And STS is a template contribution, does not have any time saving benefits really. The write up is for my own use, as I like have written documentation of what changes have been made call me OCD if you want. Just a matter of preference, I have used the comapre method before back when I was using phpbb, nuke-evo and other software, I find that even though it may take longer, but it is easier for me to make the changes.

    [Contribution] STS v4

    Thanks for the quick reply, one last question before I attempt the install. reading over the instructions for other Contribs for STS, and reading the User Manual, I have come to the conclusion that I should create a file named after the contrib with the required code inside and then add this file in the section in the STS Admin of files to be included. Is my assumption correct? $sts->start_capture(); if ( file_exists(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'file_name.php') ) { require(DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS . 'file_name.php'); require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'file_name.php'); } $sts->stop_capture('????'); One last thing I can not figure out is the section where I have the 4 question marks what exactly is suppose to go there? I took this example from the headertags.php file found in includes/sts_inc/ folder. Thank you for your time and patience.
