    Sitemap SEO

    One more point which may seem harsh but really I'm just uninformed. What is the point of this contribution? why have all the back end code and trouble? Can't I just make a simple page with a bulleted list linking to all the pages? Or is there something else going on behind the scenes that makes this more pleasing to search engines? I get the feeling that for a site that is not enormous it may just be easier to make my own page?

    Sitemap SEO

    Hello there. I'm having a few problems with this contribution. I have it installed correctly i believe and formatted to look the way I want it. Here is where the problems start. 1) in box control I am only able to select information.php 2) in page control if I select an exclude box and click update it unchecks it again after refreshing though it does seem to have an effect on the sitemap. 3) even if I exclude everything all the links still show. if i uncheck them all I get some doubles. 4) many of the links are wrong for the product categories. is there a way to change the link?

    choosing size

    Hello, I have done this on one site already by using easy populate but wanted to know if maybe there is a better way of doing it. I need to be able to pick the sizing of the product from a drop down list. The size does not affect the pricing it just needs to be listed on the order. with easy populate i need to add a 0 next to every size in excel which is not too anyways but thought that maybe there was an easier way. Thanks for any ideas.

    Optional Related Products, Version 4.0

    Thank you for this truly excellent contribution Skittles. I have installed ver. 4.0 and almost everything is working now including all the styling. I have just one question: some of the item names are longer causing the product image to not be aligned correctly because of the center alignment of the text I believe. Here is a screen shot: So my question is where do I look to fix this problem? Thank you so much, Robert

    Canada Post Shipping Module 4.0 versus v1.1

    I would like to know this as well. Do I need to uninstall the last module or just simply update with this?
  7. I just installed the clear cart contribution: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/4114 It is working perfectly in my french cart, but in the english cart the clear cart button is not showing up. I looked through catalog/includes/languages/english.php as well as the french and they are exactly the same. Im using sts and a few other contributions on both the french and english side. Which files should I be looking to for the problem?

    Who's Online Enhancement 1.4

    Hello, I'm updating from Version 3.4 and got a couple errors while trying to execute the first 2 lines of the sql queries in the readme I get: SQL query: ALTER TABLE whos_online ADD http_referer VARCHAR( 255 ) NOT NULL MySQL said: Documentation #1060 - Duplicate column name 'http_referer' and for the second query i get: SQL query: ALTER TABLE whos_online ADD user_agent VARCHAR( 255 ) NOT NULL MySQL said: Documentation #1060 - Duplicate column name 'user_agent' I checked both configure.php files and both store sessions displayed the same thing: define('STORE_SESSIONS', ''); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql' I uploaded all the files and its working fine however I no longer see what is in the users shopping cart. anything I can do to fix this?
  10. Hello, Im not sure when this happened but im pretty sure its after I tried adding the tracking number contribution. When I try to access a product in the admin area of my site it deisplays the sql error message: 1054 - Unknown column 'p.products_dim_type' in 'field list' select p.products_id, pd.language_id, pd.products_name, pd.products_description, pd.products_url, p.products_quantity, p.products_model, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_weight, p.products_dim_type, p.products_weight_type, p.products_length, p.products_width, p.products_height, p.products_ready_to_ship, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, p.products_date_available, p.products_status, p.manufacturers_id from products p, products_description pd where p.products_id = pd.products_id and p.products_id = '228' [TEP STOP] I have read that others have had this problem because they have not uploaded the canada post sql file. So i tried to reupload the file however I receive this error when trying to from phpmyadmin: MySQL said: Documentation #1060 - Duplicate column name 'products_length' and thus it does not add the p.products_dim_type to the products table. I then removed the other parts of the sql file and was able to get the table p.products_dim_type into the database. however now I am missing p.products_weight_type! that query is not in the file so I dont know how to make it since i dont know the variables. I dont see why these columns would have been deleted either.. If anyone could please help that would be greatly appreciated! thank you.

    STS shipping subtotal

    I am not sure if this is caused by STS but I have posted elsewhere before and it has led me to STS being the root of the problem. On the order_confirmation page, the shipping method is displayed as well as the tax and total however the shipping subtotal is not displayed on that page even though it is correctly added to the total at the bottom. Is it STS that is causing this by any chance? and if so is there any fix that would address this? thank you for your time, Rob

    [contribution] Simple Template System (sts)

    ok im stupid, it says to take out all the code in sts_template.html and replace it with <?php Global $languages_id; include (STS_TEMPLATE_DIR.'template_'.$languages_id.'.html'); ?> so i did that. I also made 2 files with the previous sts_template.html code in them. one for french and one for english. i named them template_1.html and template_2.html respectively and uploaded them into the full folder. this still isnt working, im getting this error which talks about template_4.html and i have no idea where that comes from since i made no such file: Warning: main(includes/sts_templates/full/template_4.html): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/g/o/s/gostwear/html/catalog/includes/sts_templates/full/sts_template.html on line 3 Warning: main(includes/sts_templates/full/template_4.html): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/g/o/s/gostwear/html/catalog/includes/sts_templates/full/sts_template.html on line 3 Warning: main(): Failed opening 'includes/sts_templates/full/template_4.html' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/content/g/o/s/gostwear/html/catalog/includes/sts_templates/full/sts_template.html on line 3

    I changed over to the full version of sts so i doubt i would be putting the 2 seperate template files in test folder but i still dont know where to put them and what they should be called. also after adding that code i get this error when accessing the cart: Warning: main(includes/sts_templates/full/template_4.html): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/g/o/s/gostwear/html/catalog/includes/sts_templates/full/sts_template.html on line 5 Warning: main(includes/sts_templates/full/template_4.html): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/g/o/s/gostwear/html/catalog/includes/sts_templates/full/sts_template.html on line 5 Warning: main(): Failed opening 'includes/sts_templates/full/template_4.html' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/content/g/o/s/gostwear/html/catalog/includes/sts_templates/full/sts_template.html on line 5

    This looks like exactly what i want to do. I can't seem to get it working though. i put this code into the sts_template.html file in my test folder: <?php Global $languages_id; include (STS_TEMPLATE_DIR.'template_'.$languages_id.'.html'); ?> so what exactly should i name the 2 files that i want it to decide to open and where should i put them, also in the test folder? thanks, Robert

    [contribution] Simple Template System (sts)

    Hello, I have sts installed the way I wanted it, I used the $content and other feautures I wanted and put them into a frame inside my website as to keep the feel of the site throughout. I have however run into a problem: I am able to get the user to go to either the english or the french cart simply by adding ?language=fr at and ?language=en at the end of all the links that lead to the shopping cart in the respective french and english sites. the problem is that it the surrounding layout of my site is all english and I need to be able to have a comepletley french version as well. is there some way to make 2 sts template pages so that i can use my french layout as well? please help it is quite important to get this fixed. thank you, Robert
  23. Hey all, Last week i was recommended Easypopulate to make adding products with many attributes easy, and it has worked like a charm until now. I had to add about 20 more attributes to the list. the thing is when i now try to open the file in excel it tells me that i have too many colums and therefore cannot fully open. it opens up but cuts off about 15 colums at the end. excel tells me to open the file in a word editor to split the file so that i would be able to open it as 2 files in execl. the thing is i need to upload a single file to oscommerce right? i know there is a split fil feature with easy populate but thats for if you have over 300 products and so far i do not, i just have too many attributes for excel to handle. any ideas one what i may be able to do?
