  2. Hi, I need to find some way to redirect people who type www.mysitename.com to www.mysitename.com/catalog .. i did a search for redirects in the forum, but got no results.. so do i just go to my cpanel to redirects and put in www.mysitename.com/index.html and www.mysitename.com/catalog? i just want to run this by before i do it so i don't do some major screw up.. please respond.. thanks!
  3. hi, would oscommerce still operate if i moved the directory from public_html/catalog/ to public_html? or is doing so forbidden? i'd like to move the directory so i can have the links/address for the products be shorter, since i send "update" type newsletter with the link to the newest products added.. for example.. http://www.mysite.com/product_info.php?products_id=1 instead of.. http://www.mysite.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1
  4. Hi! Can you tell me which script can do this.. I've always just had a mailto link on my site for people to join my mailing list, but I'd like to update it to a simple form now. I'd like the form to just collect the email address and have a button next to it for subscribing and unsubscribing to the list. TIA! PS. I use Thunderbird, but this should work as well as YAMS, right? I don't think YAMS is available for download anymore...
  5. Thanks for the quick response.. I'll submit a help desk ticket right now.
  6. Hi! I'm currently trying to add a contribution onto oscommerce that would let me integrate phpbb to it.. one of the instructions tells me to... ##################################################### Perform the folowing command at .\catalog if on a unix shell : ln -s includes/modules/phpbb2/templates/ templates This creates a virtual folder to where templates are really and is important as allow to install other templates without any modifications. If you dont have access to unix, it should be possible to implement using a the modwrite engine at .htaccess. Or just replicate the folder includes/modules/phpbb2/templates/ to /catalog/. ##################################################### HOW DO I DO THIS?!?! I've searched through the oscommerce forums with no luck and no one ever seems to answer my posts there, so I'm hoping that my host would help me out since we are family... Help a sister out! Thanks in advance!
  7. I've read the FAQs about SSL just now and it seems that if you're using the free/shared ssl then you'll get the serverxx.totalchoicehosting.com/~cpanel name instead of your domain. I'd like to have everything just be my domain name, but I am very cheap and poor. thanks anyway...
  8. Hi! I was wondering if I could get rid of this window popping up when a customer proceeds to checkout: You have established a connection with "YOUR IP" However the security certificate presented belongs to "YOUR SERVER" It is possible, though unlikely, that someone may be trying to intercept your communication with this website. If you suspect the certificate shown does not belong to "YOUR IP" please cancel the connectioin and notify the site administrator. It's pretty scary looking and I'm afraid might scare away some customers. Any chance for the fix? Thanks Aasha
  9. Hi! I was wondering if it's possible to cloak an URL. Let me explain my situation and maybe everyone will understand better.... I've installed osCommerce and am trying to use it with SSL. when i go to the checkout page the URL on the address bar is serverxx.totalchoicehosting.com/~mycpanelname instead of my domain. I'd very much like for it to be my domain name. Also, I'd like for the URL to cloak throughout the entire site, so anywhere I go the address bar will only show : www.thegeekstore.net (my domain). Is this possible? Please help! Thanks! Aasha P.S. I tried searching the forums but i keep getting error messages. so sorry if this issue has been posted before.
  10. hi thanks for responding! i've installed osCommerce on my site, it's been a few days now. modifying the pages don't seem to be too hard, but i've come across some things that i can't seem to figure out. one main example is ... adding new fields (i've added them from phpmyadmin into the osc database, but i need to have it work with osc and show up in products listing, new products, and products info pages aswell as the admin) i've found contributions for this on the osc site, but they don't work or i'm just stupid and messed it up. please help! i'm trying to have osc set up for my mailorder record store so i need two new fields for artist name and format both of which would just be plain text. please help! as always i'm panicing ... - aasha ps. here's an idea of what i'd like to have.. http://217.22.62.40/bruno/Scripts/prodlist...?idCategory=125 this is what i have achieved on my site so far.. http://thegeekstore.net/distro/default.php...dbcf482d43db707
  11. hi! i've added a new field to the osc database through phpmyadmin. the only thing i did differently from the instructions provided by sandalwood was that i named the field products_title and i've set it as varchar(64). other than that i've followed the instructions. i keep getting these error messages when i try to add a new product or view a product info page... 1054 - Unknown column 'p.products_title' in 'field list' can anyone tell me whats going wrong? or maybe an alternate way to have the new fields work? i'd like for the new field to show up in my admin to enter it in, in the product listings pages and in the product info page. i'm trying to set osC up for a music/book/movie store. so i need artist, title, format.. etc. fields. please help!!!! any help would be great! -aasha here is the code i tried to follow: >############################## STOP WAR AND WRITE CODE!!!!## ############################## oscommerce php piece of code for adding new product fields by sandalwood sandalwoo_d@yahoo.com April 2003 ############################ Sorted by Actions Date ############ #13.04.2003## ##################################################################################### ### 1.DB --------------------------------- We add new fields in osc database example: products_size, int(3), null:yes 2.admin\includes\languages\english\categories.php The Admin english label for this field ------------------------------------------------------------------------- define('TEXT_PRODUCTS_SIZE', 'Products Size:'); 3.catalog\includes\languages\english\product_info.php The Catalog english label for this field ------------------------------------------------------- define('TEXT_PRODUCTS_SIZE','Products Size:'); We do the above steps in all languages files we use! 4.admin/categories.php So we can add/edit/view the new fields in admin area ---------------------------------- ------> In $sql_data_array = array('products_quantity' => tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['products_quantity']), ....... we add 'products_size' => tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['products_size']), -------> In $product_query = tep_db_query("select products_quantity,.... we add the new field(s) ...products_size.... ------> In tep_db_query("insert into " .

  12. Hi! I just signed up a week ago and I've been uploading all my files. My site is http://thegeekstore.net and it's still not finished yet. Anyway, my question is... I'd like to get rid of the shopping cart PayPal provides me coz having a new window pop up everytime a person adds an item to the cart is just really annoying. Also, I'd like to have a cart that can automatically calculate postage by weight and also calculate the paypal fee. Also, I'd like to keep the design as it is on my site. Is this possible with osCommerce? Something you should know is that I only have experience with html and css. I know nothing of php or mysql. please give me suggestions as to where I can understand learn. Another question I have is if there's a code where I can have a 'sign up' form for my mailing list... Is there? Perhaps something that would just send me an email notifying me this person wants to sign up or just something that would subscribe them automatically? I have many more questions... but lets just start with these two. Thank you so much! TCH is fantabulous!
