    Paypal web store

    Good morning, The shop works and the whole world is sunny except a cloud has appeared on the horizon. When viewing the cart I would like an option to load a members discouunt code which would give a discount off the product costs and apply the new total before sending to PayPal. At the minute I have members logging in and then going to their own store which is a copy of the main store with different prices. It works but is an awful lot of updates for nothing. Just wondered if possible or are there any alternatives at all. Kindest regards David

    Why cms?

    Thanks for the replies, I am still not sure what to do. Is it possible to put an existing site into this framework? Is it easy to enter ones own css sheet and xhtml code? Assuming I go ahead would you all advise which one to use, seriously I need a recommendation. Kindest regards David

    Why cms?

    Good morning, I could do with some advice. I have tried to hand code my sites to validate xhtml, css,wai and 508. So far successfully. I meet many snags but with the help and advice of members of forums I keep going. Whenever I have seen a template site it never verifies and uses deprecated terms so it never entered my head to use one. Recently respected forum members on here have admited using them and in some cases actively encouraged the use of them. My questions are these, Why are you using them? What is wrong with hand coding? Would it benefit me to use one of these and which one? Is th

    It certainly does. So is the rule never a space before a ) but always a space after. I had a problem with an id earlier because of a space. Thanks very much for your help. Kindest regards David

    Good evening, I am trying to insert pictures as buttons. Everything works fine in firefox and Safari but in IE nothing. The following is the code. .star { margin: 0; padding: 0; } .star li { margin: 0; padding: 2px 0 2px 20px; list-style: none; background: url(http://www.ultimateskincare.org.uk/mulberry/images/ul.jpg)no-repeat left; } and the following is the list code Organic toner refines pores, promotes smooth, clear skin. Alcohol-free and non-drying. Balances and gently hydrates all
  7. Go to the topic in the php section dated December 23, 2009 8:07 am, this explains perfectly how to make three columns so altering the 2 to one will show 2 columns.
  8. Hope this helps. I tried the idea suggested by Falcencreative and it works perfectly. All " in the code should be replaced with ' and includes dont seem to work so you will have to write the full code. the following code was entered in every die which is a pain on a large verified form but it does work. You didnt include you footer code so I cant advise further, maybe if you publish it falcencreative will post the correct code. { die(" You haven't Entered Your First Name. Go back and Enter your First Name ". mysql_error());}
  9. I carefully studied your comments and couldnt get any where but I was looking at the public function GetShippingCost and I altered it to just echo 5. This worked so I messed about and bingo it works perfectly. below is the original code and below that the new code. nothing else to delete. public function GetShippingCost() { $total = 0; foreach ($this->items as $product_id => $quantity ) $total = $total + $this->GetItemShippingCost($product_id); return $total; } public function GetShippingCost() { $tota
  10. Close, It leaves the postage already entered even though the amount is over 50. If that cannot be solved they will have to live with it. The warnings refer to things in both files and I have tried some arbitrary deletions without success. Thanks for your attention. I find I am learning just cant always read what I am seeing. Thanks David Warning: Missing argument 1 for ShoppingCart::GetShippingCost(), called in E:\domains\s\sites4eyes.co.uk\user\htdocs\Paypalwebstore\htdocs\mulberry\functions\templates.php on line 145 and defined in E:\domains\s\sites4eyes.co.uk\user\htdocs\Paypalwebs
  11. As well as the previous file this function is in the template file. I only want postage added as follows Orders under ?50.00 ?3.50 postage Orders ?50.00 and over Free postage and packaging. function render_shopping_cart() { $shopping_cart = get_shopping_cart(); $output = " Product ID Quantity Amount "; $line_item_counter = 1; foreach ($shopping_cart->GetItems() as $product_id) { $output .= render_shopping_cart_row($shopping_cart ,
  12. I have attached theshopping cart class file. How do I charge postage based on the number of items purchased rather than the price and how do I add more items from the order page? I have had a bash and got some strange results. Regards David public function GetShippingCost() { $total = 0; foreach ($this->items as $product_id => $quantity ) $total = $total + $this->GetItemShippingCost($product_id); return $total; } public function GetItemShippingCost($product_id) { return $this->items[$product_id]
  13. Just to let you know the include thing is no go. Found an opposite way to do what I would like, i.e. keep the common code and use variable to insert individual code. This solution is better than I hoped as I only need one function for everything. This is the function begining the rest is added function render_products($area) { $output = " $i = 0; $funcname = "get_xml_" . $area; foreach ($funcname() as $product) { I also altered the call to or whatever page I want so That is the only file I have to change the function stays the same no matter how many page
  14. Still no nearer finding a solution the link is sound and I can add it before the call. could someone show me the exact include and where to stick it. Really fed up. David
  15. I now get Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in E:\domains\s\sites4eyes.co.uk\user\htdocs\Paypalwebstore\htdocs\mulberry\functions\templates.php on line 726 So I left the} above the $output and pasted the goodsbox in and got the following Notice: Undefined variable: output in E:\domains\s\sites4eyes.co.uk\user\htdocs\Paypalwebstore\htdocs\mulberry\functions\templates.php on line 78 The } is after the$output on all the other pages I have put it back and the page loads. Is there another way of loading the code? The gaffer suggested something but I wasnt sure.
  16. I now get Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in E:\domains\s\sites4eyes.co.uk\user\htdocs\Paypalwebstore\htdocs\mulberry\functions\templates.php on line 27 The template file is this and the goodsbox is the inbetween bitsIf I copy and paste the goodsbox back to the template it works. any other ways? Kindest regards David function render_products_from_FACE() { // starts the product table $output = " // sets loop to 0 $i = 0; // starts looping through products foreach (get_xml_face() as $product) { $output .= ' include("../include
  17. Still struggling. Latest effort goodsbox.php includes all the rest of my code from the first posting I get the following error Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in E:\domains\s\sites4eyes.co.uk\user\htdocs\Paypalwebstore\htdocs\mulberry\functions\templates.php on line 722 This following code is on lines 4 to 12 Advice please. Regards <?php function render_products_from_FACE() { // starts the product table $output = " // sets loop to 0 $i = 0; // starts looping through products foreach (get_xml_face() as $product) { include("../in
  18. I am not sure what the lady means. I showed all the code which is a function. I am using this function many times. The only differences are the top eight lines so I wanted to just code the top eight lines for the next function and add the rest from another file. I have tried various insert modes with no success. Regards David
  19. Good morning, Just out of interest, in the following code only the top eight lines are unique. What code would I use to file the common code in another file and insert where necessary. I have tried includes and output but nowt works. As I was advised earlier the code gets very repetitious. Thank you David. > function render_products_from_FACE() { // starts the product table $output = "</pre> <table> ' . $product->title . ' ' . $product->description . ' ' . $product->info . ' ' . $product->size . ' £'

    Thanks , I did the relative path and one link led to another until the page loaded correctly. I did not quite understand the alternative. Would this have saved time and could you put the code in context for me. Thank you once again, Regards David

  22. It did indeed. The space was in the xml file and I found lots of others so future links may not be a problem. Thanks very much. Regards David
  23. Good morning, the following link is intended to go to a specific product, however it only links to the top of the page. The page source shows Is the reason for the failure because the page is loaded from xml and if so is there a way to link to the relevent spot? Regards David

    Paypal store

    Must admit I was a bit dispirited but as you said you may be able to help if you saw the code here goes. I have two xml files catalog.xml and catalogshort.xml I have added both to the globals. The files load to my page but I cannot suss out function set_shopping_cart($cart) I have tried adding the catalogshort but failed with every attempt. I thought it would be easy but I do not know how. <?php /** Define Globals **/ define('STORE_XML_SHORT_FILE' , 'catalogshort.xml'); define('STORE_XML_FILE' , 'catalog.xml'); define('PAYPAL_BUSINESS', 'dmaxey_1261514279_biz@btinternet.com')

    Paypal store

    Thanks for looking for me. It seems strange that the author of the course didnt explain how to use multiple xml pages. I thought a page for each type of product would have kept the site more manageable and easier to edit. Seems I have wasted our time. Thanks ever so much for your help at least I have learnt lots of pointers from you which have given me more of an insight to php. Kindest regards David
