The e-commerce.

Footer showing up on right side on first load. PHP Bug.


Recommended Posts



I have been trying to fix this problem but I can't. Please help.


The new version of osCommerce has a bug associated with the footer.php. If any item goes on special or bestseller or basically anything is added to the right hand side column, the footer (copy right and osCommerce logo) will show up on the right hand side. however if I reload the page it will look just fine.


One of the other users has the same problem. www.szpieg.com


Another user told me that the bug is fixable in .htaccess line 33

# php_value session.use_trans_sid 0


to this


php_value session.use_trans_sid 0


But my .htaccess is less than 10 lines and I can't even write to it even though I have set the right user permission as suggested in the support center.


Please help.

Thank you.

thank you kirk,


forcing the cookies solved the problem.


I have been fighting this problem for a week now. I can't believe how easily it was solved.

You may want to consider another solution for your problem as a long term fix instead of the force cookies. Do you realize that many people have cookies turned off so they will get a message telling them to turn cookies on for your site, which may drive people away.


There are other solutions if you read the thread above carefully.
