  1. A client in California has noticed that occasionally the tax is rounded to the wrong penny. As illustrated below, his tax rate is a flat 9% and the total of $140.04 at 9% would be .09 x 140.04 = 12.6036. This should round DOWN to $12.60. However, CC 6.4.4 is rounding it UP to $12.61. My wild guess is that there is other rounding taking place upstream that is delivering something above 12.605 to the final tax rounding or something like that but I really have no idea. Has this been seen before?
  2. My guess: Boooooom! Really, you don't have to go through all that. I don't want to hack CC just because I am a type A PITA. I can wait for everything to catch up in a future release... I swear I can... Really... ahhhhhhhhhhhh!
  3. That would be very generous of you to do. PHP 8 has only been out since the very end of November 2020, so that's just under 18 months. Lots of changes and depreciated / removed functions and conventions so it will understandably take a while for everyone to clean their code. All my stuff works fine on 7.4 too, I just am a bit impatient to work with some of the 8.1 improvements. I have it installed in my MAMP Pro testing server and develop only with that to future-proof as far out as possible so it is important that I have it on my production server, which I do for the domains I use. For CC, I can just leave it on 7.4 until all is ready and then I will clean 7.4 off the server. As always, thanks for your help and response Brian. It is greatly appreciated.
  4. Thanks Brian. Do you know if Smarty 4 in CC645? Obviously, if a single third-party component isn't compatible, then the whole thing isn't. I run PHP as a PFM Application per domain so I will keep 7.4 for the CC clients and wait for the plugins to catch up if they haven't yet. It would be great if Al specifically announces when the CC version is released that is tested compatible with PHP 8.1. (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)..
  5. Searched around and didn't see much about CC compatibility with the latest php version 8.1. Just a single post back in 2021 or so about problems with php 8.0 breaking CC. What's happening with CC and php 8.1? I am using CC 6.4.4 with php 7.4 right now (CC still recommends using php 7.3, which is now outdated), but all my data systems and some client wordpress sites are moved to php 8.1. CC is the only thing hanging me up from having 8.1 as the only php version on my server. Any info on a timeline for this would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Well, I feel like an idiot (not the first time). I was totally focused on where the coupon was applied and not on the shipping module. Uncommenting that line of code did the trick and makes perfect sense. It was right there in the shipping.class.php file, with a big flag of a comment to tell dummies like me "HEY! right here!". Sheesh. Thanks Brian for always jumping in to help. Your remark made me take a look over at the AIOS class after being so focused on the coupon class code.
  7. This is commented in the AIOS class: $this->_value = (float)$this->_basket['subtotal']; // XXX May want to remove coupon discount, i.e. // $this->_value -= $this->_basket['discount']; Could it really be as easy as uncommenting that line of code?
  8. Sorry, I realize this is not really clear. The example of what he needs is over-simplified with just the one product. There could be multiple products. The coupon in this case is for $15 off the whole order. Plus, his promotion also has free shipping for all orders $49 or more. He needs the shipping to be considered AFTER all coupons and any other discounts are deducted. The way the store works now, the coupon looks at the subtotal and the shipping looks at the subtotal ignoring the subtraction for the coupon, because the coupon also happens AFTER the subtotal. There is no consideration by the shipping for a modified subtotal because of the coupon. He will always need the shipping promotion to be on the final amount AFTER any discounts. To me, he is right, that is the way this should work or at least have the option for it to work that way. I hope that is a bit clearer on what the issue is with the current way CC handles the checkout flow.
  9. Been trying to figure out a way to get the coupon to be part of the calculation of subtotal. The more I examine the function of the cart / checkout process from the store owner's point of view and possible marketing approaches, the more I see that the coupon logic is deficient in it's ability to be used in conjunction with other marketing tools. I realize my point of view is rather simplistic since I am not intimately familiar with the code, but I have been reading through the relevant scripts and it seems that even with the complication of coupons for particular products or other variables, those discounts should be taken BEFORE the subtotal that all other things act upon, like shipping. Do you have any suggestions or ideas of how to hack this? Combining coupons with variable shipping zones / rates is pretty common for my client and seems to me to be a pretty basic marketing approach. Thanks.
  10. All in one shipping. What I was thinking was that the coupon should have the user choice of either calculating on the subtotal or as part of the calculation of the subtotal. That way the shipping or any other module can stay looking at the subtotal for their calculations. It would be a really nice flexibility feature in the coupon module.
  11. Interesting situation with a client on CC 6.4.4: He has shipping set up for a fixed rate of $7.95 for orders $0 - $48.99. He has another rate of free shipping for $49.00 - $100,000. He also has a coupon for $15 off for new customers. He needs the coupon to be subtracted BEFORE the store calculates the shipping rate. Here what is happening: Product Z 49.96 Subtotal 49.96 Certificate -15.00 Free Shipping Total 34.96 What he needs: Product Z 49.96 Certificate -15.00 Subtotal 34.96 Ship Charge 7.95 Total 42.91 I don't see a way to get this to happen. Anyone know if this is possible?
  12. OK, I got it. Once again, I got bitten by the "security by obscurity" silliness of CC. Updated the admin folder but not the old obscured admin folder before I ran the upgrade. Loaded the files manually to the new obscured folder and all is good now. I REALLY hate that "feature".
  13. No. Only Authorize.net Accept Hosted, Paypal Commerce Platform and All In One Shipping modules are enabled.
  14. OK, I see the bug you are referring to appears to be in the Print Order Form extension. I don't use that extension. I am getting this in the admin interface when viewing an order. Did I miss something in that bug thread on Github?
  15. Thanks Brian. I should have gone and checked the bug tracker but am so busy I took the lazy way and posted here. Will monitor it over there.
