  1. If you have a contribution installed, and it is working just fine, then you notice that there has been an update or bugfix, do you always upgrade to the newest version? Just wondering if that is what I'm supposed to do, or if it's OK to just leave them be if they're working. Cathi

    Discount Coupon Codes

    Thanks for responding. It was when they clicked continue on checkout_payment.php. I finally figured it out, after uninstalling all the changes...UGH! :'( Then I went back and looked at the original contribution. I had installed it before May 30, when you updated the install instructions. Once I corrected the minor error in the checkout_confirmation.php, everything is working just perfectly! :) I LOVE this contribution! :thumbsup: Thanks! Cathi

    Discount Coupon Codes

    Well, I had the contribution installed, and I thought everything was fine. I was able to create coupons, the order totals were correct, etc. However, if the customer chooses to pay with Paypal, (whether they use a coupon or not) then when they click continue, it just brings them back to the checkout_payment.php page. If they pay by check, it works correctly and takes them to checkout_confirmation.php. Does anyone know why this is happening? I had to uninstall it because nobody could make any orders, but now they can't use their promised discounts. Cathi
  4. HAHA...I guess you can't please everyone...I was complaining after I installed it that there wasn't a logoff button. :P Cathi
  5. OK, thanks anyway, I found it. It seems my DEFINES for PWA disappeared, so I put them back. I don't remember doing anything, but they must have gotten overwritten with their backups somehow. I've gotta stop burning the midnight oil!!! Cathi
  6. Sorry to keep adding replies, my button to edit a post seems to have dissappeared?????????? I meant to say that in the address bar it shows: mysite.com/.../catalog/FILENAME_ORDER_INFO?osCsid=65be5978fcc8105d59730a2a056d1a77 Cathi
  7. OK, this is probably a clue in my address bar... mysite.com/.....catalog/order_info.php I overwrote the order_info.php file with the one from the contribution again. It didn't help. Where else can I look? Cathi
  8. I don't know what happened!! I installed PWA and it was working perfectly. Today, I was browsing the store, and when you click on "checkout", you get a 404 error. I haven't changed anything since the last time I used PWA successfully. Well, I did add a product, but I deleted it in case that was the problem, and it didn't help. If I log-in, I can go to checkout just fine I don't know the first place to start trouble-shooting this type of error. Can anyone help? Cathi

    Estimated Shipping Costs

    I installed this contribution today, and it seems to be working great. Thanks! I also have Drop_Shadow_v1.1 installed, and thought I would share the modified code in case anyone else wants to use both contributions together. By the way, I'm a total noob, so I was really proud of myself for figuring this out....LOL :lol: I'm not sure that I did everything right, but it works. Cathi This is in the catalog/includes/classes/boxes.php file /* bof estimated shipping box contribution */ //New estimatedshippingBox Class class estimatedshippingBox extends tableBox { function estimatedshippingBox($contents) { $info_box_contents = array(); $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => $this->estimatedshippingBoxContents($contents)); $this->table_cellpadding = '0'; /* drop shadow mod-necessary to change cellpading in contentbox to 0 from 1 */ $this->table_parameters = 'class="infoBox"'; /* changed class to infobox for drop shadow mod */ $this->tableBox($info_box_contents, true); } function estimatedshippingBoxContents($contents) { $this->table_cellpadding = '1'; $this->table_parameters = 'class="estimatedshippingBoxContents"'; $info_box_contents = array(); $info_box_contents[] = array(array('text' => tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '100%', '1'))); for ($i=0, $n=sizeof($contents); $i<$n; $i++) { $info_box_contents[] = array(array('align' => $contents[$i]['align'], 'form' => $contents[$i]['form'], 'params' => 'class="TextBox"', 'text' => $contents[$i]['text'])); } $info_box_contents[] = array(array('text' => tep_draw_separator('pixel_trans.gif', '100%', '1'))); return $this->tableBox($info_box_contents); } } class estimatedshippingBoxHeading extends tableBox { function estimatedshippingBoxHeading($contents, $left_corner = true, $right_corner = true, $right_arrow = false) { $this->table_cellpadding = '0'; if ($right_arrow == true) $this->table_row_parameters = 'onclick="window.location=\''.$right_arrow.'\'"' .

  10. Thanks for the quick response. I navigated away from the store, and when I came back to it, I was a "guest" again. :) I was just worried that those customers who are paranoid about creating accounts might think they are logged in to my shop with no way of logging out. I guess I'll just wait and see what, if any, feedback I get. Thanks for all the support that you give to this contribution! :thumbsup: Cat
  11. I installed PWA and it seems to be working fine, except for one thing. I made a purchase, and now the site recognizes me as if I were logged in ("Welcome back, Cathi"). That wouldn't be a problem, except there are no login or logout links anywhere! :'( How do I get these links to appear? Cathi

    Unique Category Descriptions

    That's where I had put it. When I couldn't get it to work, I tried the Category Descriptions 1.9 instead, but I'm having trouble with that too. (maybe it's just me... :P ) I'm still working on it. Cathi

    Unique Category Descriptions

    OK, so I couldn't wait until the morning.... :-" I spent 3 hours very carefully installing http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1373 step-by-step. The instructions seemed very thorough and clear. But something went wrong. :huh: I did not get the new line that should be at the bottom of Configuration/My Store in the admin tool. If I click on a category in my store, I get this error message: 1054 - Unknown column 'cd.categories_heading_title' in 'field list' select cd.categories_name, cd.categories_heading_title, cd.categories_description, c.categories_image from categories c, categories_description cd where c.categories_id = '2' and cd.categories_id = '2' and cd.language_id = '1' I'm not sure what this means or where to look for the mistake. Thanks for your help. :blush: :blush: :blush:

    Unique Category Descriptions

    Thanks Wendy. You always answer so quickly. :thumbsup: I looked at the Header Tags Controller, but it's waaaay over my head. I think I'm going to try one of the others that you suggested. I'll have a go at them in the morning. If anyone else knows what I did wrong with the simpler one, please let me know.
  15. I installed Unique Category Descriptions. I chose that one because as a beginner, I need something simple. I followed the instructions... created catalog/includes/descriptions, modified the catalog/index.php file, then created php files for my categories in the descriptions folder. I wrote a short HTML category description in one of the files, but it doesn't show up anywhere. Then I tried encasing it with php tags in case that was the problem, but it didn't help. Where should it be showing? (above the products when I click on the category?) Was there something else I should have done? What are some things I can look for to figure out why nothing changed? Thanks!
