Multi_Vendor_Shipping new thread

Recommended Posts

Hello. We have a store running with MVS, but we're getting this error on occassion during checkout.

 

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/objectfe/public_html/store/includes/modules/vendor_shipping.php on line 101

 

I'm told it's an "instatiating" error that occurs on some severs it occurs and on some servers it doesn't.

 

There are a few options I've dreamed up to deal with this - a message replacing the error to refresh would be the most expedient, but of it is indeed our host and server config, perhaps there is a solid shared hosting solution where someone is running MVS - and this error doesn't occur.

 

Any recommendations?

 

Thanks.

I can't see this happening for any case except when the shopping cart is empty, and you should not be able to check out in that case. Can you give us any indication when it happens? Only with one vendor, or only with two in the order, or something else? I'd prefer to keep this from ever happening.

 

If you want recommendations, I'm running several; stores on the same hosting service that osCommerce uses (see the bottom right corner of this page.) I've never seen this error on any of my sites. Then again, my code is heavily modified, so maybe I'm just not seeing the right circumstances for this to happen.

Jim

Not sure how that's possible. line 113:

	 if ( ($this->enabled == true) && ((int)constant('MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_RATES_ZONE_' . $vendors_id) > 0) ) {

Unless your module installation got messed up, this can't really happen. That constant get's created during installation of the module. Can you check your database directly? This warning doesn't actually hurt anything, but it shouldn't happen. The zone should have been added during module installation.

 

Try removing it and installing again, and see what you get.

yea i can check the database directly what am i looking for?

Try to find this:

MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_RATES_ZONE_1

in the "configuration_key" feild. That will tell you wether or not it was added. If it is not there, then this would point back to some problem with your server, as you were having problems with adding data before.

 

Maybe, it is time to contact your host about the MySQL server.

 

Post what you find in the database.

No, when you install the module in the "vendor manager" that feild will be created in table, "vendor_configuration". If it isn't there, there was a problem during installation. I have that exact file on my test server and am not getting that message, so I am confident the problem lies somewhere in your server. Did you try "removing" the module and then reinstalling it? Something is strange about your server, it's not playing nice at all.

In includes/modules/vendor_shipping/usps.php, find all instances of MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_RATES_ZONE_ and replace them with MODULE_SHIPPING_USPS_ZONE_. There's one on Line 113, Line 115, Line 140, and another on Line 144.

 

Bugs. There's no end to them.

That's an error that was fixed in the Febr. 6 rollup version. If you are using an older version of MVS you may be missing a lot of bugfixes. You can fix this one by replacing every instance of $this->products with $these_products, or you can replace the file with the one from the Rollup version.

Jim

 

this is back in the latest release btw along with the other string i you had me replace seems this file was reverted to an old one. I got it fixed but just figured you should know..

MVS V1.0 doesn't have the file that was causing the issue at all anymore. All code from "vendor_order_data.php" has been moved into "classes/order.php" in order to meet backwards compatibity. Using "$this->" in the class is proper because it creates the "object" with the code, PHP4 was handling this fine, but 5 is a bit more sensitive, so the code cannot be "included", it must be in the class structure.

 

You should not get any errors concerning this with MVS V1.0. Let me know if you did. That would suggest much more serious.

The loop is another strange one. Did you make sure all bogus entries for the USPS module are out of the db? I would suggest going in manually and deleting every entry that includes "MODULE_USPS" and then go back to the admin and try installing it again. Maybe something from the wrong code Jim found is still in the db and is messing something up.

 

I haven't had any of these issues on any of my tests. Damn! Which file did you modify to get rid of the "$this->" errors? "$this->" is referenced by the "object", "$order". This is standard PHP class structure, so it should not be a problem.

Ok, I'm the idiot, I have been looking in the admin side. This is from the catalog side right?

Yeah, MVSV1.1 is shaping up already.

 

Let me know what you get after the re-install.

oh and yes catalog side

Hmmm... You can go to the new MVS V1.0 Demo Site and check it out. "Buy" a DVD movie and create an account and checkout, you will see the USPS module giving quotes. The other 2 categories are from 2 other Vendors, you can see what MVS does with the various modules using the system.

 

I will keep researching the looping issue, but I have not been able to replicate the issue.
