  1. I'd like to tweak the mican skin a little. I've reduced the size of our logo and would like to remove a little of the dead space above and below it. Any ideas which file this might be in please.

    PayPal 2FA

    Has anyone applied 2FA with PayPal. I'm getting rather frustrated with PayPal, and thier inability to provide any meaningful support. They keep sending me around in circles. Firstly, they suggested I install Symantec VIP authenticator, and whilst the install of the app is painless on a PC, how to configure this to work with PayPal took over a week of back and forth before I finally recieved the information required. Once the app is installed, there are two methods to authenticate Scan a QR code, or have the app provide a secure key. I can't scan a QR code as this relies on using a mobile phone, and sort of defeats the object. I'm tightening up security, but a trusted user could still log in to paypal from home and steal from us. So whats the point of 2FA using a private device. The second option works OK, where by the Symantec authenticator app provides a secure key. However, it's limited to four token ID's, and I have about 6 users in different parts of the business. Anyone else in a similar predicament. ?
  3. Actually, scratch this, I found magic slideshow plugin for small money and it's far superior to bxslider. Just demoing it now.
  4. Is there an easy guide to implimenting bxslider in to mican please. I've tried to follow this thread, but i can't make head nor tail of it. Its all over the place. https://forums.cubecart.com/topic/49585-bxslider/?tab=comments#comment-207696
  5. After a few emails back and forth with the Paypal techie guys, i've about drawn a blank He states: The module should allow you to turn express on and off? Unfortunately we have no oversight on the development of the plugins or their functionality. I can advise on the code if that’s of any help, but normally the plugins are developed by third party developers. If the module allows switching off of express, then I can't see where.
  6. I didn't leave it applied long enough to see what the 2nd part of the plugin did. I used the Express button on my first test order, and discovered that it over rides what the customer has configured as his default address. That was enough for me to take it back off very quickly. I explained the flaw in this part of the module to the PayPal guy, who said that he would mention this to thier development team, but I'm not expecting anything to come of it.
  7. Try telling that to a guy who orders 2 pallets of something, expecting it to be delivered to his work address (as it's always been for the last 10 years), and then we send a 12 ton curtain sider to his bugalow down a cul-de-sac, beacause he didn't pick up on the fact that we applied a new module. When we tried express checkout a few years ago, we had this happen a number of times. I can't risk it happening again.
  8. Some of our clients are old school, and been using our way of doing things for 10 years or more. Introducing a fundamental change like this only causes confusion. If it was like this from the start, things would be fine, but to make this change after 10 years is just fraught with problems. Could anyone point me as to which file I can play with to remove the express button.
  9. Any thoughts on why this extension should over write the databse entry in the customers account and change his default delivery address ??
  10. I've just discovered that this module is worse. As a test customer, my default delivery address is my work address. I place an order and choose the yellow express type button and using my personal paypal account. This wipes out my delivery address in the cart, not just on the order, but actually in the database. Now my delivery address in the cart has defaulted to my home address. Any customer who's not paying attention will end up having his goods shipped to the wrong address.
  11. I've been advised by PayPal to update to the Commerce API, which I've done. However, I don't like the express checkout button. Is it possible to switch this off. We've had in the past where customers will order items to go to a work address. but they are using thier personal PayPal. The express checkout would over write the delivery address, resulting in us sending the goods in the wrong direction and a disgruntled customer.
  12. The API doesn't seem to be updating orders to processing, so staff are not receiving the order notification from the web site.
  13. My bad, when we were discussing this 12-18 months ago, i was under the belief that this was a server side setting. I found this. session.gc_maxlifetime = {your value} session.save_path = "/home/{USER}/tmp"
  14. Theres a bug in PHP, well technically not a bug, it's a design feature, but it's enough to cause an issue. If a customer leaves his browser untouched or closes his browser etc, around 20-30 minutes later PHP peforms a clean up, and deletes inactive sessions. As AL suggested, this can be worked around by changing the setting 'session.gc_maxlifetime' in PHP.ini. However, what makes this difficult is that setting is a server wide setting, so unless you run your own server, you may not be able to change this. I doubt that a shared server host would change this setting just to please you, unless this can be done on an account basis, which i'll make enquiries. It seems that Plesk V11+ has a domain specific php.ini which over-rides the server wide setting, this can be configured through the Plesk control panel (if you are hosted on Plesk of course)
  15. I'm still seeing these, but not as many as i used to, so i just now delete them when they appear. I get maybe 1 per week.
  16. it's added in manage hooks, code snippets, but see your other thread for more details.
  17. this works for me. I wrote a small code a few years ago, where a customer had to reach a minimum order value before he could progress to checkout. To limit certain items, i recently modified this to work on weight, then allocated a set weight to products. In my case, it's latex gloves. each box of gloves has a weight allocated as 1.00, Any order eceeding this limit throws up an error. Go to Manage hooks, code snippets and add a new code snippet. Heres the code, based on a weight of 10 (10 boxes of gloves) <?php $upper_val=99999999.00; $lower_val=10.00; $value = number_format($upper_val, 2); if($GLOBALS['cart']->basket['weight'] > $lower_val && $GLOBALS['cart']->basket['weight'] < $value) { $GLOBALS['gui']->setError ('You Appear to have exceeded our gloves allowance - Sorry'); $GLOBALS['smarty']->assign('DISABLE_CHECKOUT_BUTTON', true); } ?> also see attached image.
  18. I thought there was a discount voucher/ promo code facility where you could set the amount of times a customer could use it. I'm looking to offer a £5 discount on all orders, but only want it where by a customer could only use it once, but it's still available for any other customer. Is this possible
  19. This seems to work to an extent. <?php $upper_val=9999999; $lower_val=12.00; $value = number_format($upper_val, 2); if($GLOBALS['cart']->basket['weight'] > $lower_val && $GLOBALS['cart']->basket['weight'] < $value) { $GLOBALS['gui']->setError ('You appear to have ordered too many gloves - sorry '); $GLOBALS['smarty']->assign('DISABLE_CHECKOUT_BUTTON', true); } ?> The lower value doesn't work as I'd expect it to, but 12 is close enough to 10, to stop someone coming along and orderin 1000. I'll have to check the database to ensure nothing else has a weight assigned before I consider implimenting it. Probably tomorrow when i'm in the office.
  20. I'm getting somewhere with my minimum order value hook which I devised a few years ago. Could you help me finish this off. I've aloocated 1kg to a box of gloves, It would be good if this would poup up when a basket exceeded say 10 or 20kg. ?php $upper_val=15.00; $lower_val=10.00; $value = number_format($upper_val, 2); if($GLOBALS['cart']->basket['weight'] > $lower_val && $GLOBALS['cart']->basket['weight'] < $value) { $GLOBALS['gui']->setError ('You appear to have ordered too many gloves - sorry '.$value.'.'); $GLOBALS['smarty']->assign('DISABLE_CHECKOUT_BUTTON', true); } ?>
  21. We do, but this guy is not a guest account. Coming back to the PPE limit. Would something like this work: We don't have weights allocated against products, If I were to allocate 1kg to a box of gloves, could I set a weight limt to an order, of say 10kg.
  22. 6.2.6, but I just personally tried the status button thing twice and can't fault it.
  23. I spotted that status button, but it doesn't appear to work, we had one order again today and I disabled him a week ago. Let me play with my test login. Odd, as I just un-statused myself, and can't login and can't reset my password, yet a troublesome profiteer placed an order today, despite him being un-statused. Strange.
