    AIM and SIM have reached End of Life

    John...I use Authorize.net and would be willing to contribute to the effort if you decide to develop a module for whatever service they continue to offer. Dan

    Quick Product Updates for osc 2.3+

    @BrockleyJohn John I was looking through the code in the quick_updates file to get a little familiar with it, in preparation for a few changes I wanted to make and noticed that the table defines weren't updated so I went ahead and did that. In case it is of some help the file is attached. Dan quick_updates.zip

    Harald is on the only one that can change it but it can always be uploaded as a new version. Dan

    KissIT Image Thumbnailer Support

    Yeah...sorry about that. I had seen your post in that other thread and Rainers reply where he suggested you roll back to a version where KissIT Thumbnailer is working. I thought you had done that and were having trouble. I didn't realize you were still trying to get this to work on, where it probably won't, until he has a chance to update the contribution. Knowing Rainer he will likely update this fairly quick so if I were you I'd just put this contribution aside and work on some other aspect of your build until he has a chance to do so. Dan

    KissIT Image Thumbnailer Support

    That is telling you that you don't have the hooks.php file in that directory. Sounds like you failed to copy it into the right folder some where along the way. Have a look and see if it is indeed missing and if so add it from the appropriate update or from a backup, if you have one. You can also get it from the phoenix build on github if you can't find it.

    Paypal Standard Payments Failing

    @Bordersbloke The crt update worked for me....are you using the PayPal APP? Dan
  7. DeDe does this solve the problem of it not working on an initial page load? See the following post. Dan

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    Fredi...there is no need to be on the bleeding edge....pick a point.... is probably a good spot and hang out there until things have evolved to a point where you want to step up a version or two. Otherwise proceed with caution and be patient. Dan

    AIM and SIM have reached End of Life

    John here is the actual notice that I received...using AIM as well. AIM/SIM APIs and Simple Checkout Officially Deprecated Our legacy Advanced Integration Method (AIM) and Server Integration Method (SIM) APIs, as well as our Simple Checkout option, are officially deprecated, meaning we will no longer provide any updates to these APIs. If your website or payment solution uses one of these methods, this means the following: You can continue to process transactions via the APIs and Simple Checkout Your use of the APIs and Simple Checkout is “as is,” meaning you will not receive any new updates, including new features, payment network mandate updates, etc. Because these methods will no longer be updated, you could face penalties and fees associated with transactions that do not meet mandate/compliance requirements Your transaction processing functionality could deteriorate over time If you are using the AIM/SIM APIs or Simple Checkout, we highly encourage you to upgrade your website or payment solution to use the current Authorize.Net API. This will allow you to stay up to date on new releases, network mandates, and more. Please contact your web developer or payment solution provider for further assistance or to find out whether you are currently using AIM, SIM, or Simple Checkout. For me I'm not sure I'd call it urgent but it would be nice to get out in front of the bus. I don't really want to logon some morning only to find that my main payment option is now failing. Dan

    Bill, maybe it would be worthwhile asking someone like @BrockleyJohn (who seems to know his way around the payment modules) for a quote on updating the authorize.net module. I'm sure there are others interested in getting it updated to and perhaps we can crowd fund it to make it happen. Dan
  11. It's something I might have done too, in fact I think I have. 😀 Dan
  12. Or you can just install the existing module that comes with Phoenix. At least I assume it comes with Phoenix. Dan

    Upgrading to the latest version

    Or if you're not a member of the club it's on the osC download page... https://www.oscommerce.com/Products Dan

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    I don't use this version but normally if you go to your customers list, select a customer and then create order it should take you to edit_orders.php so you can add a phone order etc. At least it does with the version I use. Dan
  15. I think I gave up on this one...faced the same issues and fate as Malcolm did. My advice...move along...it will be a time sink and not likely end well. Dan
  16. Interesting idea. 👍 Dan PS: That's one ugly thumbs up Emoji.
  17. Drop a note to Cord....I'm sure he'll point you in the right direction. Dan

    Product listing

    Thanks Rainer....you get a gold star. 🤩 That would explain it. My images are outside the images directory and needed some code added to their urls so they could be located. As a test I removed the extra code from one of my skus and it works as it should. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Dan

    Product listing

    Rainer I just installed this on a 1.02.6 site and noticed that the thumbnail images are outside of the "size" directory. See the image below....is that normal? I assume it is not. On my old GOLD site it use to sort them in one big directory and label them by including the sizes in the filenames. Adding them to a separate directory makes sense but for some reason that is not happening on my install. Perhaps it is the way I'm keeping my images in folders and sub-folders. The original images (large) are stored in a "skus" directory and then within sub-folders. The thumbnails are repeating the file structure and images okay. It is just not putting them in the 200_200 directory. Dan

    Product listing

    Dinesh I'm going to move this thread over to the support thread for Rainers Kiss Image Thumbnailer. You'll probably get help there but in the meantime what settings have you set for the small images ie Admin->configuration->images? Try increasing whatever they are set at and let us know if that helps. Dan

    Generated link Concept

    Brilliant idea and coupled with your original suggestion of changing the access point of pages like create_account I think it would go along way to solving the bot issue. 👍 Dan

    HoneyPot Captcha

    I thought that was an excellent suggestion too. I think Matt @ecartz is doing some work in this area and while it might be beyond the scope of his project it is probably worth bringing it to his attention. Which I guess I just did. Dan

    Convert a magento extension to oscommerce addon

    Yup...make sure you start out with the right version of the osC software. Dan
  24. Agree...I just wanted to make it crystal clear. Simply because it is being removed from the core doesn't mean it'll no longer be available. Dan
