A slew of questions

Recommended Posts

Please forgive me- I have a bunch of questions that I haven't been able to answer by reading other posts.

 

1. Dumb one- using the FedEx shipping module, when an order is completed is your FedEx account charged automatically or do you have to process that seperately (I don't handle the packing and shipping but if they get charged twice I'll hear about it :) )?

 

2. If not, is it possible to have your the FedEx account charged automatically?

 

3. I already posted this elsewhere, but is it possible to have the package tare weight added to each package in a customers order instead of averaged over the whole order?

 

4. Where do I go to change the width of the layout? Right now it looks to be set at 100% but I'd like to give it a go at 740 pixels.

 

5. Is it possible to limit the FedEx shipping options to only 2-day air?

 

6. How do I get rid of that darned "Manufacturers" block?

 

7. How do I get rid of the German and Spanish language options (just delete them?)?

 

8. For that matter how do I get rid of any block?

 

9. How do I backup my database?

 

10. How do I limit the shipping options to only one country?


Do, or do not. There is no try.

Hint: You are much more likely to get answers if you keep it one question to a post. Very few of us are crazy enough to take on this many at once (or admit that we don't know everything).

 

1 and 2: I don't know.

 

3. Only if you modify the shipping module. I doubt that it will make enough of a difference to be worth the effort, but I could be wrong here.

 

4. Look for the Center Store Contribution. If you want to go with fixed width you'll probably want to center it on the screen, and that Contribution will do both.

 

5. Yes. You'll need to remove or comment out the other options from the code.

 

6. Open includes/column_left.php and delete or comment out this code:

    if ((USE_CACHE == 'true') && empty($SID)) {
   echo tep_cache_manufacturers_box();
 } else {
   include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'manufacturers.php');
 }

 

7. Yes, just delete the language files and the Languages box (see 8).

 

8. Go to includes/column_left.php or includes/column_right.php and delete or comment out the appropriate code. Most of them are pretty obvious.

 

9. admin > tools > database backup.

 

10. Remove all other countries from the database. You could also hard-code the country code into the appropriate pages, but that would take a bit more work.

Thanks for being crazy enough to take on all my questions at once!

 

What does "comment out" mean?

 

I forgot where question 9 came from- when I go to admin > tools > database backup one of those pink error strips appears at the top of the page and tells me "Error: Backup directory does not exist. Please set this in configure.php." I don't know what to put in config to create a backup directory.

 

cheers,

4. Use My Dead Easy Center Thingy contribution.

 

9. You need to be changing this in admin/includes/configure.php

 

 define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . 'your_backup_directory/');

 

11. To comment out a line of PHP add two forward slashes. e.g. to comment out

 define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . 'your_backup_directory/');

(which you don't want to do) you would change it to

 //define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . 'your_backup_directory/');

the // comment only works on single lines - to comment out large sections you would use /* at the start and */ at the end e.g.

/* This text would be commented out */

 

HTH
