    [Contribution] STS v4

    Your settings are wrong. They should be the following: Use Templates? true Code for debug output debug Files for normal template sts_user_code.php Base folder includes/sts_templates Template folder freeoscommerce_009 Default template file freeoscommerce_009.html (although I strongly recommend to change the name of this template to sts_template.html) Use template for infoboxes true

    What do you mean "thread link"? This is the support thread for STSv4.

    This is not a STS issue but rather most likely a user error on your part. You've accidentally copied the /catalog/includes/application_top.php into the admin. Be sure to follow the installation instructions very closely.

    I'd say your host DID do something or you were hacked. You should have went over your files via FTP to see when the last time they were updated. Check all root files on your server to make sure a hacker didn't do something there. Also, you could be dealing with a database problem. Try uninstalling STS via the admin and then log out. Login again to install STS to refresh the database.

    PHP Warnings while using STS

    STS already has a procedure to deal with file includes. Hint: Look into the STS Modules in the admin. Also, please post STS related questions in the proper support thread, it is the forum rules by the way. See the STSv4 Forum link in my signature below and then once you are there, click on "Add Reply" to post within that thread. Thanks!

    Russ, Good point! To be honest, I thought I included that in the documentation. Good catch! I will modify the text in the next release. I have a update to be made very soon regarding the custom infoboxes so I will make this change along with that. Thanks for posting,
  7. Josh, Since this is not the support thread for STS, I will only respond this one time here, if you need further help, please visit and post your questions in the proper support thread. You can find this thread link in the STS User Manual as well as in my signature below (STSv4 Forum). When posting in the STSv4 Forum, be sure to click on the "Add Reply" button to post WITHIN the proper thread. Otherwise, you will create an entirely new thread as you have done so here. When installing onto a new osCommerce RC2a (not version 3.x), you should simply upload all of the files WITHIN the STS folder (not the actual STS folder), being sure to keep the file/folder structure intact. The files within the STS folder are new files that are not found in a stock osCommerce RC2a. The second part of the install is to upload all of the files WITHIN the "Files for RC2" folder (not the actual "Files for RC2" folder), being sure to keep the file/folder structure intact. The files within the "Files for RC2" folder are files that are already found in a stock osCommerce RC2a but have been modified in order to complete the STS installation. After doing the above, it is a good idea to use a file comparison tool such as WinMerge or BeYond Compare to compare the files on your server with the files within the STS and "Files for RC2" folders of the STSv4.6 contribution. This will help rule out a bad upload from your FTP Client software. I have seen numerous accounts of users who claimed they had indeed upload all of the required files but in reality, they were using a poor FTP Client software program which had failed them. Now, the last part of the installation is to login to your admin, and then "Install" the STS Default Module. At this time, simply click on the install button (or Enable) and leave all of the settings in their default status except of course for the "Use Templates" should be set to "True". Installation is now complete. See you in the STSv4 Forum.
  8. Steve, STS would not have anything to do with this contribution, page load times and all.

    First, be sure you have the STS Index module enabled. Then, follow the template name structure for custom template pages. Another option is to create custom PHP code to handle this if you didn't want to create specific template pages for each sub-category (STS gives you the choice to do it eitherway). See the common template names listed a few posts above.

    I actually created my own options as images add-on and it works perfectly with STS. I don't see any reason why the one you are using would have any issues other than that contribution not being coded correctly to meet osC standards. If you are not using a content template for your product info pages, then STS would pick up the content changes you made in your standard product_info.php page automatically. Here are some things to look into: Be sure you are calling the JavaScript needed in your template pages Be sure the Ajax add-on is working with STS turned off first You could look into not having STS template any pages created by this add-on (See Below). How to exclude a page from being templated in STSv4.5.x: In the sts_default.php file, find the following code: if (strstr($scriptbasename, "popup") || strstr($scriptbasename, "info_shopping_cart")) return ''; // We don't use template for these scripts Add your php file that you want STS to exclude and it will not template that file. Note: Add the script name as follows: if (strstr($scriptbasename, "popup") || strstr($scriptbasename, "your_script_here")|| strstr($scriptbasename, "info_shopping_cart")) return ''; // We don't use template for these scripts Hope this helped,

    Luc, STS allows you to make your own home page using HTML and naming that page as so: index.php_0.html This page would then be used as your home page. You would then make sure you have a default index template named index.php.html to be used for all of your other catalog pages. This is different from the default template page (sts_template.html). The sts_template.html is used for anyother page in your shop in which you have not created a specific template for such as your privacy.php and shipping.php pages. See these posts for more information: Important Posts for the STS newbie: Post #3755: http://forums.oscomm...p;#entry1226986 Post #4326: http://forums.oscomm...p;#entry1303555 Post #4974: http://forums.oscomm...p;#entry1361366 Post #3772: http://forums.oscomm...p;#entry1227769 Post #3757: http://forums.oscomm...p;#entry1227006 Please review the above for insight on how the Simple Template System allows you to make templates for pages, categories, home page, products and infoboxes. TIP Here is a quick rundown of common template names: sts_template.html= Default template [*]index.php.html = Default Category template (used for all category pages that do not have a specific template page created for it – if you didn’t have this template, STS would use sts_template.html). [*]index.php_0.html = Home page template [*]index.php_x.html = Specific category template where x = the category ID. [*]index.php_x_y.html = Specific subcategory template where x = the category ID and y = the subcategory ID [*]product_info.php.html = Default Product template (used for all products, in all categories, if no specific product template is found). [*]product_info.php_c23.html = Product template for all products in a specific category (23 in this example – change to the category ID needed) [*]product_info.php_23.html = CONTENT template for product ID 23. All content template should be saved in the SGP/content/ folder. Review the sample content template provided in the STS template “full/content” folder. The STS Module Product Info must be enabled in order to use this STS feature. This template is not recommended unless you really know what you are doing since you would need to make modifications to it if you ever added new osCommerce contributions to your shop. [*]popup_image.php.html = Template for the product popup image. [*]index.php.mfr.html = Default Manufacturer template page (used for all manufacturer pages that do not have a specific template page created for it - if you didn’t have this template, STS would use sts_template.html). [*]index.php.mfr_x.html = Specific Manufacturer template where x = the manufacturer ID. Hope this was helpful,

    Hello and welcome to osCommerce RC2a and STSv4.6. Sorry to see that you are having problems right at the start. Be sure you are indeed uploading the modified template back onto your server in the same location. Be sure you have the correct template set selected that you have made the modifications in (the folder where this modified template resides). If the template set is using a index.php.html template, then you would need to modify that template as well. If all esle fails, refresh the cache in your browser as you may be viewing an old cached page of your site. Try viewing your site from a different computer to see for sure. Hope this helped,

    Thanks for taking the time to post back.
  14. This is most likely due to a cache issue in your browser or server. When using IE, use the F5 key to refresh the page in the browser. Also, you could try deleting your temporary internet files off your computer. Try viewing using a different computer to be verify. Also, could be due to a poor FTP Client software not uploading properly.

    Check your installation. Be sure you have indeed uploaded the contents of the "STS" folder to the correct location on your server, keeping the file/folder structure intact (meaning, do not upload the STS folder and everything in it but only upload everything inside of the STS folder. Either upload everything in the RC2 folder or make the changes to each file manually. If you choose the manual route, save yourself some time and pain by using a good file comparison tool such as Beyond Compare or WinMerge to merge in the changes manually, so as to make sure the modified code is going to the correct location. Once the above is completed, click on the "install" button for the STS Default module in the admin. Keep all of the default settings and then test your shop.

    Yes, you need to make sure you have created your links properly (to retain the session ID). See the following thread in this STS Forum: Creating Page Links

    STS: $content not showing

    What version of osC are you using? Did you upload all of the files within the STS folder as well as all of the files from the RC2 folder? Did you keep the folder structure intact? Did you try using STS using the default settings (other than the enabling the Default module by clicking on the Install button of course)? Please post this in the STSv4 Forum thread (link is in my signature below as well as being listed in the STS User Manual).

    They do, as I am viewing them now in IE. Hmmmmm.. maybe something else on your PC or your setup is causing the problem?
  19. Since you are using stop char in your variable names (recommended) you will need to make sure the following is at the top of each template page: <?php DEFINE ('STS_END_CHAR', '$'); ?> <?php DEFINE ('STS_CONTENT_END_CHAR', '$'); ?> <?php Hope this helps you out,

    The problem is not STS or IE, but with your coding in your template or CSS. This is why STS comes with sample templates. Use them and get aquainted with STS and osCommerce and then create your own templates.
  21. Jami, This is known bug from a template set (freeosc009) donated by a user. I have not been able to locate in the template set what is causing the bug but I do have a stable fix for users who still want to use that particular template set as a foundation for their site. You can find the work around here: http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/295660-contribution-sts-v4/page__st__5760__p__1514546%26#entry1514546 Hope that helped you out,

    Glad you took the time to find the correct STS thread. Wasn't that easy? Usually, with these types of issues, it is most likely that your site's configure.php files are not setup correctly (includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php). Another possible reason, you do not have the correct permissions setup on your images folder. And lastly, make sure you didn't make the rookie mistake of turning on "Use Search Engine Safe URL's". This should never be turned on as it is still in development. If you want this option, you will need to install one of the SEO contributions.
  23. Why can't you stop playing games and go to the STSv4 support thread and ask your question there. My gosh, you would think I was cutting off your right arm. Just go to the STSv4 Forum and post your question. How much easier could it be? There is a purpose for this as explained in my posts above. I even posted the link for you in my signature below as well as publishing it in the STS User Manual. Everyone wants it handed to them and not put any effort into doing it correctly. I will GLADLY provide FREE support to ALL of your STS QUESTIONS if you follow directions and post there. If not, keep complaining and Good luck!
  24. Because we get sick and tired of people NOT READING THE DOCUMENTATION. The documentation specifically points out to post all STS related support questions in the proper support thread in order to BENEFIT ALL STS USERS from the question/answer. If you would have read it, you would have seen this. Thank you. Also, if the user would do the above, they would find that the answer has most likely already been given a hundred times over within the STS support thread. An easy Google search of the thread would point that out. (see below) I provide the software and support for free so why can't the users oblige and post in the appropriate support thread? Seems fair to me. If I don't inform the erratic posters that they are not in the correct thread, other users may think this is the official STS Forum and piggy back questions to no end. Sorry to upset you but please try to follow the proper procedures. Thanks! Here are some Google search tips: Search the specific STS version 4 support thread: site:forums.osCommerce.com [Contribution] sts v4 site:forums.osCommerce.com [Contribution] sts v4 $templatedir By adding the search phrase "$templatedir", Google will search the entire STSv4 Forum thread for that phrase. Search the entire osCommerce forum: site:forums.oscommerce.com sts site:forums.oscommerce.com "insert your search text here without the quotes" By adding the search phrase "sts", Google will search the entire osCommerce Support Forum for that phrase. Search the contributions: site:http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions simple template system site:http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions "insert the search contribution name here without the quotes" By adding the search phrase "simple template system", Google will search the entire osCommerce contributions for that phrase. So...for example Do a Google search for: site:http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions Header Tags SEO And that will return the following.
