  1. Hi pretty nice @JcMagpie it works also using unicodes: https://www.alt-codes.net/snowflakes-symbols.php It is possible to put each of the the three and also the * in an array and let them get generated randomly. I did this the evil hardcoding way so might see this as a kind of inspiration: // Set the letter that creates your snowflake (recommended: * ) var snowletter=["&#10052;","&#10053;","&#10054;","*"] .... for (i=0;i<=snowmax;i++) { var snowlot = snowletter[Math.floor(Math.random()*snowletter.length)]; document.write("<span id='s"+i+"' style='position:absolute;top:-"+snowmaxsize+"'>"+snowlot+"</span>") } Best regards Christoph

    brand new oscommerce shop - help

    Hi, the user.css is the last one to be loaded after bootstrap.css and custom.css, these both shouldn't be changed. Being loaded at last your definitions made in user.css will overwrite those made in the other ones. So you could e.g. copy some definitions from custom.css to user.css and alter them. If you need to unminify a compressed css for better understanding there are several websites just google for unminify css. Best regards Christoph

    brand new oscommerce shop - help

    Hi, if there is a user.css file in your catalog folder then you are using a BS version of Oscommerce and that user.css should be the one to edit. Best regards Christoph
  4. Hi, in which way is your domain now pointing to the subfolder /catalog ? The rewrite part of my .htaccess starts this way (with examples for base): <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On # RewriteBase instructions # Change RewriteBase dependent on how your shop is accessed as below. # http://www.mysite.com = RewriteBase / # http://www.mysite.com/catalog/ = RewriteBase /catalog/ # http://www.mysite.com/catalog/shop/ = RewriteBase /catalog/shop/ # Change RewriteBase using the instructions above RewriteBase / and ends like this: </IfModule> Best regards Christoph
  5. Hi, depends where and how your site is hosted, normally you can direct the domain to any subfolder of public_html by using your providers tools for domain settings. The .htaccess file has to be moved to the subfolder (catalog) or merged if there is already one and rewrite base would be RewriteBase / then. Best regards Christoph

    Unable to have Products appear under Categories

    Hi, If I understand the screenshot correctly the selected category has no sub categories but products in it? Then something must be wrong with index.php or /includes/modules/product_listing.php, would be my first guess, have you done any changes to one of those? Best regards Christoph
  7. This can be the case with hardcoded links and as far as I know .htaccess won't do the trick, but it is not so hard to get rid of them. If you get a mixed content warning about insecure loaded elements, you could look at the page source in your browser and there search for http: and then adjust your code. You could also use Firefox and press ctrl+shift+e to start network analysis and find insecure elements. Best regards Christoph
  8. @RAC, I think the best practice now would be to go totally ssl which means regarding to the two configure files set both HTTP_SERVER and HTTPS_SERVER to https://yoursitewhatever as e.g. google plans for chrome to give a warning on every non ssl site from july on. Additionally depending on which kind of server you are there are differing ways to force ssl for everybody visiting your site using http://. have a read: Best regards Christoph
  9. Hi, what about ssl, I see you have it running on your site, but it is not configured? Best regards Christoph

    Changing the text size in 2.3.4 BS Edge

    Hi, for 1) If I get you right and you have also very long product names look here: for 2) it would be useful to know which version of oscommerce you have in use. look in your root directory can you find a stylesheet.css file there or can you find a user.css file? One of those should be the place to apply changes, which again depend on your version of oscommerce. Best regards Christoph

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    Well whatever, I have to set it to 3 because without it no tax calculation (with differing taxes for e.g. food) would be done. There is an option which is checked for, but it does not exist? By the way my middle name is PIA since now, I guess. Best regards Christoph
  12. Hi, Burt posted SQL commands, which you could have put simply inside of the SQL tab in phpmyadmin, I think you could still do it that way. Have you tried to reenter your your lengthy product names in the admin? If that doesn't work something went wrong. Best regards Christoph

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    Hi Jack, sorry, I may misunderstand you, but there is an option 3. line 402 does what I need; if (OPTIONS_ENABLED_INCLUDE_TAX == 3) { Option 2 says define('OPTIONS_TAX_CALC', (OPTIONS_ENABLED_INCLUDE_TAX == 2 ? (OPTIONS_TAX_RATE/100) + 1 : '1')); //UK. US tax rate - US is ignorded since it is 1 so maybe you meant: if(OPTIONS_ENABLED_INCLUDE_TAX == 1 || OPTIONS_ENABLED_INCLUDE_TAX == 2) $output .= "\ttax"; Best regards Christoph

    Automatically send data feed to Froogle

    @Jack_mcs, Regarding the price with tax I ended up with this: $row->price = $currencies->display_raw($row->price_no_tax, tep_get_tax_rate((int)$row->tax_id)); Another thing I had a problem with was if(OPTIONS_ENABLED_INCLUDE_TAX == 1 || OPTIONS_ENABLED_INCLUDE_TAX == 3) $output .= "\ttax"; As I have OPTIONS_ENABLED_INCLUDE_TAX == 3 the heading would a add a tab stop with title tax but the feed would not have the have tax rate (I could not find anything which would put that there in the code) nor the tab stop in it, which produced errors at merchants.google missing that tab stop. So I changed to if(OPTIONS_ENABLED_INCLUDE_TAX == 1) $output .= "\ttax"; Best regards Christoph

    Contribution for AJAX image upload

    Hi, you could try to add some information. Is this a changed admin/categories.php? If so are there commented changes in it that could give a hint? If not what is the file name? Which is the date of the file? Best regards Christoph
