How Do I ……

 

1. … Change the OsCommerce in the Title?

Log into the admin then go to Configuration > My Store and edit Store Name

 

 

I did this, but the OsCommerce name is still there rather than my store name. Suggestions?

It's against forum rules to discuss work for hire so I won't comment on that. But I will offer a word of advice, in general, for what it is worth. If you are going to hire someone to do the work for you, try to be sure they know what they are doing and compare what they plan on charging you with other quotes. There are many reputable and talented people on these forums that can do the work for you. But there are also trolls that will promise the world and not deliver, or severely overcharge. I've had experience with shop owners that paid well over $500 ($2,000 in one case) to have someone install a shop with a template, only to find the shop wouldn't function correctly afterwards. And when I explained to them that the template they had was just a common one that costs around $150, they were not very happy, to say the least. So be careful.

Some suggestions:

 

Contribution specific questions should be asked in the support thread for that contribution.

 

Ask one question at a time. More work for you but less work for those giving their free time to help you.

 

The questions you asked have all been answered. If not in this thread, then elsewhere on the forums.

Hey

 

I followed the steps as you outlined below without any problem, but when I went to my localhost site and attempted to use the express checkout option, nothing happened? Does this have anything to do with the cURL Program Location, which I left as the default /usr/bin/curl?

For those with osCommerce 2.2 RC2a that are having trouble setting up Paypal Express in Payment Modules because you can not find out how to get your API's here is how it is done.

 

How do I generate an API Signature?

You need to have a PayPal Business account. If you're testing with a Sandbox test account, repeat these steps for your Sandbox test accounts and your live accounts. We recommend having a pen and paper ready, and opening a separate web browser to perform these steps.

 

Here's How:

 

Click the My Account tab.

Click Profile at the top of the page.

Click the Request API credentials link in the Account Information column

Click the Set up PayPal API credentials and permissions link.

Click Request API Credentials link.

Select API signature.

Check the Agree and Submit button.

Click Done.

Write down your API username and API password information.

Copy the signature and save it to a file or some other location. This is your API signature.

Dear Jack, thank you very much.

There is no instruction in the language pack I need.

The process of installing a new language is almost all the same for all languages, though there are some exceptions.

 

- Upload all of the included file. They should be unique.

- Go to admin->Languages and add the new language.

 

It should work at that point. As with all contributions, you need to be careful that you download a full package. Many &$#(*! people upload partial packages and that causes many problems.

Hi, I am a complete newbie to OS Commerce and I seem to be falling over at the most basic level. I have been able to add my logo and change some basic things (date etc), I have also changed the shipping methods. But I am trying to add the Purchase Without Account add-in and am having a problem. I have downloaded it and ftp the autoinstaller into my site but when I follow the instructions and typed the address into my browser it won't find the file. My provider is virtual free servers and OS Commerce was installed via Fantastico 1 click script. It was installed in a sub directorey called shop. Does' anybody have any idea where I should install this add-inn? Regards, Graham

Dear Kasey,

 

You quoted a post from me from 2008.

 

Are you asking me about the API procedure?

At the bottom of /catalog/popup_image.php just BEFORE the </body> tag ADD this code:

 

<p class="smallText" align="center"><?php echo '<a href="java script:window.close()">' . 'Close Window</a>'; ?></p>

The forum screws up the code I posted, you MUST remove the space between java and script or it won't work.

 

Always backup a file before making edits.

 

Thanks for this, how do I add a font colour and rollover colour?
