  1. Oh, I found it in my browser's cache. But now I see the file in that directory, too. Good to know! Thanks!
  2. Nope. That wasn't it. I did find on in my browser history and it got me to the log in.
  3. Something similar..?? Where would I find it? I think I found it... in the servers File Manager, the name of the directory.
  4. Um... Ok, I did that, and saw the red notification. Then I finished working on it and logged off. So now how do I get back into the admin???? When I go to website.com/ADMIN it tells me the store is offline.
  5. Yike! I had created a .htm file indicating the site was under construction and put it directly under public_html. I never noticed that after installing CC, the "under construction" .htm no longer executes! All my testing has been LIVE! I need to know how and where to allow that .htm to have priority, and where to change the referrers in the code that go to "website.com" to go instead to "website.com/index.php" Or is there another way to have the web site under maintenance to the visitors?
  6. EUREKA!!!!!! I installed PayPal Pro, got everything lined up, and was able to place and order and pay for it! I also notice that in this round the Cube Cart "Check Out" button when clicked takes me right to PayPal. Which is repetitive, but fine for now. What a journey!
  7. I deleted shipping and checkout related everything and started over and I now have the 2 shipping options I wanted. YAY! However, when I click on it "CHECK OUT", I get this: " Many thanks for your order! The order status is currently pending but it will automatically update to processing once payment is confirmed. Normally this is automated and will happen within the hour but please do contact us if you require more information. " Since I don't have any payment info in my profile, I assume this will fail? Is there anyway at all I can get rid of the default check out and just use straight up PayPal (assuming I can get it working at some point)?
  8. Wow.... ok, I'll try that. But if I disable shipping & taxes, will I lose the ability to calculate sales tax?? Is there no way in CubeCart to simply have a choice of "free shipping" or "schedule a pickup"? It seems like such an obvious and simple feature.
  9. I've got the "free_shipping" folder uploaded, but the red banner still shows up in checkout. Then I started experimenting in the Manage Extensions. -------------------- When I use this combination Name: Free Shipping Min. Subtot: 1 Max Weight: 555 I get a drop down box that looks like Fig. 1, and you can only select the 0.00 line which has no other description. Awkward. ------------------- When I use this combination Name: Schedule Pickup Min. Subtot: 1 Max Weight: 555 I get a drop down box that looks like Fig. 2, and you can only select the 1 line which is logical. ------------------- When I use this combination Name: Ship for Free Min. Subtot: 1 Max Weight: 555 I get a drop down box that looks like Fig. 2 again, but this time only offers the "Ship for Free", the "Schedule Pickup" doesn't show up. Sorry I'm being so thick about all this, but now my question is am I only allowed a single shipping method? I would like to have the ability to schedule a pickup AND ship for free. Ideally, I would like to not have to bother with shipping at all, and just have PayPal as the only checkout option, and let PayPal do the shipping.
  10. Ouch. I need to stop multitasking on this application and take a break. I have brain freeze. So, my question is... Do I upload the actual folder "Free_Shipping" to modules/shipping or just the folders and files in the "Free_Shipping"?
  11. Thanks! I edited my previous comment - we crossed paths typing. Ooops. Wait a minute... the unzip created a folder that contains a bunch of other folders that have the same name as the folders directly under the root. Do I copy all those folders to modules/shipping or do I copy the folder that they were all unzipped under? The PayPal screen doesn't show where to enter the keys. It shows the API username and password that PayPal assigned, but not the fields for the captcha keys. The captcha keys were registered with Google (as required by CubeCart?), not PayPal
  12. Thanks bsmither. I figured that on the captcha, but I can't find where go to in Admin to re-enter the keys. The screen that popped up when I did it originally got closed and now I can't find it. Ooops. Wait a minute... the unzip created a folder that contains a bunch of other folders that have the same name as the folders directly under the root. Do I copy all those folders to modules/shipping or do I copy the folder that they were all unzipped under?
  13. Thanks, and Ok, I've downloaded and unzipped it, there are no specific install instructions, so do I just FTP all the files up to the public_html directory?
  14. I registered my site w/Google Captcha and selected the v3 (challenge) Captcha. I copied the keys over, but now I can't find where you put those keys to double check them, and I'm getting the error " ERROR for site owner: Invalid key type " What did I do wrong, and where do I find the place to fix it in the Admin panel? Please advise?
  15. Hello, We will be having "free shipping" on all our products, the cost of the shipping will be built into the product. This is the easiest way for us as sales tax on shipping and the product is required and the same rate. So I integrated the PayPal module ... but I still get the red banner that says " Unfortunately there are no suitable shipping methods available for your order. " So... I don't see where I can "turn on" a shipping method, and I don't really want to install an API for it as we won't be using it. Also, when I click on the PayPal Checkout button, I get this red banner: Error: Security header is not valid Security error Unfortunately there are no suitable shipping methods available for your order. This may be because the total weight of your order is too high or we cannot ship to your country. Please contact a member of our staff for any further inquiries. Please advise?
  16. Oh, ok... my version is 6.2.6 I was talking about having the abbreviation be unique. So, like NY01, New York Monroe County NY02, New York Suffolk County ....etc. And the for each instance of the "NY"'s, the new field (which would not be a unique nor an indexed field) would be "NY". And that value would be the value that would get passed along in place of Abbreviation. You see, I wouldn't even need, for my small application, to have the new field added to Admin forms and whatever/where ever else, I would just update the field manually in table itself. That would take me about 5 minutes tops? Super easy to put into place, but knowing what modules to modify for the customers view and the variable to be passed along to the cart is my twitch. I'm going to assume if Abbreviation is the default field to pass along to payment processors, then using the new field should just be a matter of adding it to the query and replacing the code that sends that value with the value of the new field from the query.
  17. That's odd, I am getting a different result when I add a new zone with an existing country, a new name, and an existing abbreviation I get: Country successfully updated. Zone successfully updated. Zone successfully added. ...in that order. Are you running the most recent version? I just installed this manually yesterday off of the "download". Anyway, what PayPal would use is not a concern to me, if it wants to see NY then for all of the county zones in New York the new field for passing to PayPal would simply be stuffed with a value of "NY". The only thing missing for me is what .php modules (or whatever else) are using which field for the customers invoice display and for passing the value "abbreviation", I would change al those to pass the value of the new field, which I think for my purposes I would call [state_displayname]. I gotta put this down for now and let my subconscious chew on it for a while, lol
  18. I like your idea of expanding the unique key to include name! That would make a very big key, but on the other hand, I'm not concerned about it, or about performance as this store front is going to be very small with regards to products and inventory. I'm still not clear on what fields end up feeding the actual shipping address that is displayed as the "ship to" that's fed to PayPal? I was thinking, based on your explanation, that if the code pulls the "ship to" info from the Abbreviation or the Name fields, that maybe a quick hack would be to add a field to the zones called "name_print-as" (or something), load up that field with the text that would be expected to be displayed on the actual postage, and have the program (s?) that feed the "ship to"'s in carts use that field value. Then you could have NY01, NY02, NY03.... up to NY99. I only have 52 (or was it 58?) counties to worry about so that would work for me. That would be less disruption to the relational structures of the database. What do you think? Regards NY taxes... New York has legislation in process to be voted on for businesses with $300k+ annually to be required to be businesses with economic sales tax nexus. But this legislation is being misinterpreted a LOT. The goal is not to relieve businesses making less than $300k of sales tax nexus, but to close the loopholes for those at or over. (Hope that didn't dash any hopes...). [cut and paste directly form NYS sales tax guide:] New York considers a seller to have sales tax nexus in the state if you have any of the following in the state: An office or place of business (check) If employees are located in the state (check) Goods in a warehouse Ownership of real or personal property (check. (duh.... talk about a catch all?)) Delivery of merchandise in New York in vehicles owned by the taxpayer Independent contractors or other representatives in New York (And people wonder why business is bailing out of New York at the speed of light....)
  19. Hello! I understand that CubeCart doesn't currently apply sales taxes to any zones less than States. In New York state (and about 32 other states) sales tax is applied only when shipping is within the state that the store is located in. But New York state adds a deeper complexity where by the sales tax rates that have to be applied are based (mostly) on the county. *note: we can't use zip codes because zip codes are postal delivery based and any 1 zip code can potentially cross over more than 1 county. In order to try to "hack" my way around this, for the state of New York I'm entering all the counties as a state. for example: New Jersey New Mexico New York - Monroe County New York - Suffolk County New York - Wayne County New York - Yates County North Caroline North Dakota Ohio My thinking is that I can then assign the tax rate by "county", even though it's really the state name. But I want the abbreviation to be the same for all (NY). Where I'm glitching up is the Abbreviation field. When I run the SQL to dump all of the "states" into the table, it dies on a duplicate value on the Abbreviation. Yet I can't see that the field is a primary key or a unique key? I suspect it is somehow a unique key. But I don't understand why? I also notice that from the Admin control panel end, I see "New York" / "NY" as a state, but when I add a new zone via the form as "New York - Monroe County" / "NY" it responds with Country successfully updated. Zone successfully updated. Zone successfully added. But when I look at the list of zones, there's nothing new and "New York" / "NY" is still there unchanged. So it wasn't "successfully added", and I did not change the Country only the state, so neither was Country or Zone "successfully updated". :::confused look::: I'm also wondering ... what is actually going to show up as the shipping address via PayPal? ...is it the abbreviation or the name? I feel like I'm so close to the answer, it's probably staring me right in the face and that's why I can't see it, lol! Please comment and/or advise?
  20. Sweet! Thanks for the quick response. Just got out of a meeting with my biz pard, and will experiment with this more tomorrow.
  21. I just installed cubecart to day on a test site... (thanks for the very simple bug free install by the way!) and was looking around for something like a language file where I could globally change the display of the term "Manufacturer" to "Artist"? Actually, this isn't as important for the Admin side, but we'd really like that change on the customer's views and hope we don't have to dig through loads of modules to make the change. Which brings up another question... is there a "customs" folder that can be used to store changed .php files, etc. so that when upgrades are done we can compare the new files to those in the customs folders? Or do we have to do that manually?
