AJAX Attribute Manager support

Recommended Posts

Help!

 

 

My guess is you didn't run the SQL update that adjusts the db for the new columns. Use your admin section in your db and import the file.

Just a tip:

If you really want this addon to work, change your error reportig level in admin/includes/application.top to:

 

// Report ALL errors:

error_reporting(-1);

 

Then go into your admin and try to add/edit a product.

 

In your admin folder you should have an "error_log" have a look into it and fix the errors until the error_log is empty.

 

Next install kiss error handler and debugging (find it among the contributions) on the admin side.

 

Then go into your admin and try to add/edit a product.

 

In your admin folder you should have an "errors" -folder open the error file in it and fix all errors.

 

Good Luck!

Hello, I am using v2.8.9 plus QTpro. I have fixed all bugs in those, there were a lot of them :)

 

When a site is multilingual you have to select your prefered language to see all the possibilities with AAM.

 

No default language is set when AAM loads. So, how do you set a default language?

 

The section where it should be done is:

		<?php
	$languages = tep_get_languages();
	if(count($languages) > 1) {
		foreach ($languages as $amLanguage) {
		?>
<!--Original//-->
		 <input type="image" src="<?php echo DIR_WS_CATALOG_LANGUAGES . $amLanguage['directory'] . '/images/' . $amLanguage['image'];?>" title="<?php echo AM_AJAX_CHANGES;?>" <?php echo ($attributeManager->getSelectedLanguage() == $amLanguage['id']) ? 'style="padding:1px;border:1px solid black" onclick="return false;";':'onclick="return amSetInterfaceLanguage(\''.$amLanguage['id'].'\')";';?> >
		<?php
		}
	}
//Set default language here, id=1:
		?>

Any ideas?

or, actually, would it be easier to engineer the front end to view the existing entries as gross instead of net? (here I go thinking aloud again!)

I just tried the Ajax product attributes for 2.3.1 add on and it seems the instructions are cut short.

note.. the description of that add-on does not point to this forum thread. There is no support thread for it.

Also note, the profile page of the add-on contributor indicates he has been a member since last September but has

made ZERO posts to the forum

 

I had really hoped this worked because I have a lot of products that share identical options.

After adding it, trying to assign an option to a product via the unedited /admin/products_attributes.php

I get a mysql error, value/column mismatch on insert to 'products_attributes'

 

I also found, that while there is no mention of it, the add-on apparently adds a column to the 'products_attributes' table. Of course /admin/products_attributes.php does not know about this new column, so naturally fails on insert.

 

At this point, my only option is uninstall it.. undoing changes indicated in the install.txt , and then finally

via PHPMyAdmin

 ALTER TABLE `products_attributes` DROP `products_options_sort_order` 

 

After that I can at least assign product attributes the old fashioned way...

 

I am really hopeful someone will pick up the ball, sort out this much needed but apparently broken and abandoned add-on for 2.3.1 I'd give it a go, but am on paying projects for the next few weeks, and unfortunately, eating is favorable to not eating.

There is still a bug when using QTpro;

The field 'products_quantity' in table 'products' is not updated.

If you use the QTpro manager to update the attributes stock this table gets updated as well (and not only 'products_stock').

 

Example:

If you have two attributes and 5 pcs of each you have a total of 10 pcs in 'products_quantity'.

If you then go and edit this product and update the attribute stock to 10 pcs of each you should have a total of 20 pcs in 'products_quantity'. But it still ends up with a total of 10 pcs.

 

This could be very crucial

If you have set your store so your products become inactive while they are out of stock, then your product will be inactive in the store before its actually out of stock.

It’s become inactive when 'products_quantity' in table 'products' has the value 0, even thou you have a positive value in the field 'products_stock_quantity' in the 'table products_stock'.

 

 

Does anyone have a fix or thoughts about this?

I looked into this abit more. And it does update as it should. The problem is that if you continue and hit the "Preview" button the value in the field "Products Quantity:" over-write the the value AJAX Attribute Manager set in 'products_quantity'.

 

So it would be nice with a solution for this.

Looks like the language file content.

 

Just a hunch but. . . .

Triple check that all files were uploaded to the correct locations, and in

ASCII/txt format, not as binary files.

 

It almost looks like the opening PHP tag was removed from the language file

I installed the AJAX Attribute Manager contribution on osCommerce 2.2-MS2.

 

We too stumbled on the double attributes problem, like when putting in sizes S,M,L the result would be S,M,L,S,M,L

 

This was the case when adding a new product and rightaway setting the attributes.

But when we add a new product to our shop, first save it and after that set the attributes we DON'T get double entries.....

 

I have this problem with AJAX-AttributeManager-V2.8.9.1. I have double entries for the same option. I have done what you said. Firs of all i add the product and then i set the attributes.

 

Does anyone resolved this issue?

 

Thanks ;)

I never ran into the double attribute bug, but despite it's handiness, it is a quirky mod and simply takes some changes in how you use it.

 

In my case, we found it necessary to flush the product data and start over until we got it right. Sadly that may be the only way to get it right.

 

As the previous poster suggests, do what I call the basic product entry first, name, description, pic, price. basically everything except attributes. Once the product has been saved, then go back and add attributes.

 

Get familiar with the attribute templates. Likely some of your products have at least somewhat similar attributes, and loading a template and tweaking it for a specific product is often much faster than entering them all from scratch.

 

The original OSC product attribute page should not be used at all.

Thanks for your answer.

 

I often modify product after saved them and i usually use templates. But the user has to modify the prices or sort the options manually. When the user does it, its when the options are repeated.

 

My actual solution is to delete all the doubled option in the products_attributes table with this sql:

 

SELECT pa . `products_attributes_id` , pa . `products_id`

FROM `products_attributes` pa inner join `products_attributes` pb on pa . `products_id` =pb . `products_id` and pa . `options_id` =pb . `options_id` and pa . `options_values_id` =pb . `options_values_id`

WHERE pa . `products_attributes_id` > pb . `products_attributes_id` ORDER BY `pa` . `products_id` ASC

 

But that`s not useful. The user depends on me.

Sounds like they are adding a new option/value pair rather than adjusting an existing one...

 

Not a solution, but you could add a unique index on the 2 columns involved.. resulting in a duplicate entry error if that is indeed what causes the double entry.

Sometimes they delete some options.

 

Is this what you said?

It should be a UNIQUE index, rather than a plain INDEX.

 

I believe you have the correct column names in your 2 column index, I'd have to double check and don't have time right now to be 100% sure

 

If the table contains duplicates, when you change it to UNIQUE, an error will occur indicating which row caused the error. you should be able to delete one of the dupes and attempt the change of the index type again. Once all dupes are removed, you should never get dupes again.

please help ... I installed the latest Version of Ajax Attribute Manager to my oscommerce 2.3.1 - but it doesn't show anything under the price. Before uploading a product at least a questionmark can be seen. From a post before I read, it could be due to my changed name of admin directory. But where would I have to insert my personal admin directory name? Or might the following piece of code from a discount addon in the template_top.php mess it up?:

 

...

 

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="includes/stylesheet.css">

<script type="text/javascript" src="includes/general.js"></script>

 

<!-- AJAX Attribute Manager -->

<?php require_once( 'attributeManager/includes/attributeManagerHeader.inc.php' )?>

<!-- AJAX Attribute Manager end -->

 

</head>

<?php

// Discount Code 2.9 - start

if (basename($PHP_SELF) == FILENAME_DISCOUNT_CODES && isset($action) && $action == 'new') {

//echo '<body onload="onload();">';

} else {

echo '<body>';

}

// Discount Code 2.9 - end

?>

 

...

 

thx, Arved

I just manage to install it. Check that you are using the 2.3 install instructions cos mine looks like this....

<!-- AJAX Attribute Manager -->

<?php if ((basename($_SERVER["SCRIPT_NAME"]) == FILENAME_CATEGORIES)) {

require('attributeManager/includes/attributeManagerHeader.inc.php'); }?>

<!-- AJAX Attribute Manager end -->

 

<head>

 

Also if you get a stack code after installing. go to attributeManager/languages/English/attributeManager.php. Change the first line '<?' to '<?php'
