Recommended Posts

Pain in the butt back again... (w00t)

 

I really want to be able to use 2.3.3 but might have to use RC2a.

 

The site really needs:

 

I have tried finding ones that would work with 2.3.3 but was unlucky.

 

Any ideas?

There is NO GUIDE BOOK as each contribution was coded as the original developer chose to code it. If you know of a link that shows step by step how to update those 3 contributions, please post it. Otherwise, please only post constructive replies. (a.k.a MYOB)

 

ps. Please feel free to update those contributions for him at no charge, and then post them on the website for everyone to enjoy.

Thank you guys for the replies.

 

I have a thought...

 

If I attempt to add and convert the contribs, maybe I can post the error messages or what ever and see if someone could help??

 

Only problem... some didn't give errors, they just plain didn't work.

 

Wish I knew more about PHP!

Just to try. If you try and get some errors and put in some effort you most likely get some help.

 

That's some of the fun with free software, you have all you need at your hands. You just have to learn how to deal with it..

 

Just give it time, be careful when you compare, and double check for typing or copy past errors before you post for help. It most likely minor errors where you have lost some characters in copy past routines, or overwritten one you shouldn't.

 

And just to be sure, keep a good backup before you start, and don't be afraid of going back and start over again...

 

Good luck..

 

And BTW i like your line and just want to add something....:

The skill level of php required to get a decent grasp on OSCommerce is not that high. And the php between 2.2 and 2.3 is almost identical. Personally I found that the primary skills needed to get a handle on the php in OSCommerce is patience and cutting and pasting blocks of code. Once you do get a handle on some of the basic php commands, esp how to do a conditional loop through a database and to write basic mysql query statements, then you'll take much of the mystery out of converting contributions.

 

here is one of the tutorials where I started. There are tons more, just use the google:

www dot tizag dot com - focus on the php, sql and mysql tutorials at that site.

Thanks guys for the replies.

 

I have learned some osC/PHP coding while working on my MS2 2.2 version.

 

I do see some similarities between the versions.

 

Unfortunately I have tried a few "Image Subdirectory" contribs and played with them for some time now.

 

I can't get any of them to work!

 

They either just don't do anything (images still go to the image folder) or they return errors.

 

I did get one to upload "either" the main image "or" the large image to a subdirectory, just not both images.

It is easy to overlook the history tab :P :lol:

Done it myself plenty of times. :-

Will look into updating other addons for you. Might take me awhile though.

 

The variables have changed from one version to the next, this is why so many addons for OsCommerce 2.2 do not work with OsCommerce 2.3.3 and not only that but the admin side has changed considerably. The format is somewhat different, but it should be somewhat easy as well, so maybe when I'm done I'll make a general tutorial on how to update add-ons to 2.3.3 from 2.2. Of course, the real trick is to update all of the various functions,etc... that make an individual addon work in 2.2 to work in 2.3.3.

Well, I'm sure that it would be most appreciated by any member willing to try to fix it himself/herself.

Thank you Robert.

 

I have finally got an "Image Subdirectory" to work. It's not perfect but gets the job done.

 

A tutorial on how-to update older add-ons to the new 2.3.3 platform would be greatly appreciated by all I am sure.

 

My guess is it would be a hugh undertaking though. I tried researching some and just got more confussed than when I started. :wacko:

Yeh, i know what you mean. So many add on developers are getting in it for the money and forgot that the Os in OsCommerce stands for Open Source. So, just give me a few weeks to get the addons and tutorial up cheers!

hmmm, guess i can't edit the above post.

 

But anyhow, I think the biggest help to all would be a standardized addon development system so that all developers have to stick to a strict development process.

 

For example:

Build an addon folder and call upon that folder for all addons to add to OsCommerce from an admin panel kind of like Firefox's manage add-ons tab. Easy install, etc... without modifying OsCommerce's basic files.

 

Plus an updated version checker that ensures that the add on will work with new versions or if the bug fix really works.

I don't mind adding add-ons by editing files, the biggest pain is finding out it doesn't work. <_<

No problem Robert.

 

I have been playing around with the More Categories add-on but have not been successful, well unless you call breaking things being successful (w00t)

I can't for the life of me get around the categories.php file need for the More Categories add-on.

 

Been trying and trying but not having any luck.

 

Any ideas or points in the right direction?
