  1. Thanks for the tip, I will take a look.
  2. Jeepers, what if you have stuff commented out, or how in the world would it make sure it wasn't inserting something within the wrong set of { } or something.
  3. Darn, I was hoping I would never have to cut and paste again, oh well.
  4. In looking at the instructions for installing SEO header tags reloaded http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8864 I see that the reader is instructed to 'Upload or Merge' files. Having spent a significant portion of my youth cutting and pasting snippets of code into my OSCommerce site installing add-on, this caught my attention. What does 'Merge' mean? Is that something other than manually cutting and pasting snippets of code into a file? Is there a program or something that will merge two OSCommerce files full of html, php, javascript and misc stuff? I have been unable to find a good answer googling or searching this site, and thank you in advance for direction on this.

    Mail Manager for OSC v2.3

    if (file_exists(DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES.'mail_manager/order_confirm.php')){ include(DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES.'mail_manager/order_confirm.php'); }else{ tep_mail($order->customer['name'], $order->customer['email_address'], EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT, $email_order, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS); } It sounds like you are saying the issue is that the tep_mail command above initiates. Your code looks fine, the only thing I can see that would go wrong is that order_confirm.php is not being located. I don't have this set up, but try something like this and see what happens: if (file_exists(DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES.'mail_manager/order_confirm.php')){ echo 'order_confirm found'; // include(DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES.'mail_manager/order_confirm.php'); }else{ echo 'order_confirm not found'; //tep_mail($order->customer['name'], $order->customer['email_address'], EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT, $email_order, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS); } I know this is a bit simple, but I am not a professional and this is what I know to do.

    Ray, Good catch on the variables in password_forgotten.php. You can add this correction to the mail manager contribution, or if you find anymore corrections post them back here and I will add them to the contribution. http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/9133

    In the example templates that are included in the mail manager, you will find that an unsubscribe link is included that when the recipient of that email clicks on it, it will send an email to you with the word 'unsubscribe' in subject line. You will then have to manually remove that subscriber from your mailing list. The code for this is basic html, just be sure in the email you send out you have something like this: <p style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; line-height: 16px; color: #999999; margin: 10px;"> To be removed from this mailing list click <a href="mailto:unsubscribe@[member=yourwebsite].com?subject=Unsubscribe&body=Please%20remove%20my%20email%20from%20your%20list" ><u>here</u></a></p> In this example, you would need to make sure that 'unsubscribe@@yourwebsite.com' is a valid email account you receive. It could be anything such as 'removeme@myemail.com' as long as it is a valid email you have set up.

    Thank you for spotting this. The mail manager contribution status is open, and it would be appreciated if you posted these changes.

    Mail Manager

    If you ran the follow sale letter once or twice a week, you would be sending out to all your sales and it only takes about three clicks. I am not familiar with how to setup cron job, but it is going to involve setting up something on your web server outside the php script itself.

    I mean 'shipped' not paid.

    Mail Manager

    You manually send it. Go to mail manager>bulk mail> and then select the installed thank you letter. It is one of the bulk mail letters. It is written to send to any customer whose order has been changed to a status of 'shipped' more than about 10 days, but no older than about 3 weeks. Thus if you wait three weeks without manually sending the letter you start skipping customers. I simply send it every time I go to process orders each day. It will run in the background. It will also not resend the letter to the order twice. It sends to the email in the customers order, per order. It only sends to the customer once per order, because it sends only to the email in a customer orders whose status is 'paid'. Once it sends the email it changes the status of that order to 'thank you' . You can see the programming and change what the status is changed to by going to: admin>includes>modules>mail manager>sale_followup.php and making the appropriate programming changes.
  12. Mail Manager for OSCommerce v2.3 is now available in the add-ons. Mail Manager is designed to: 1) Send all emails in html with a text alternative.

    I am willing to bet you have a couple of typos somewhere in the html. The html in the text is kinda of the typical thing you see when a < or > has been left out. The errors are being rendered, or read just a bit differently in the different programs that ar reading your preview and the mail. In other words, the preview screen is less sensitive to the typos than your mail program.

    It should work fine on 2.2ms2. You find it easier to upgrade a 2.2ms2 than to start anew and reinstall your contributions, esp if you have the design you like. The important security functions can certainly be upgrade. The detailed instructions to do this are on this site. Perhaps someone else, who knows where it is can post the link.

    HTML-mailmanager-osc_2.3.3.4, http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/9004 is a different contribution than Mail Manager, http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8120 . I have not looked at HTML-mailmanager-osc_2.3.3.4, it doesn't appear to have it's own support thread, perhaps the author, Flaggi can assist.
