Hi Paul,

It would be good if you also replaced the code in the cart page (Start pof Page and html box). There was a bug in the promo codes calculation and the Empty Cart error message. Kevin has done so and it his cart is now fine

Is there a new version to download to do this?

Thanks again for all you work and support

Hi,

This is not a cart issue, you have issues with how php has been setup in your hosting account.

Each PHP setup has a predefined path on the server where it stores the sessions details.

Seems like in your account this has not been correctly setup thus causing the issue.

I have met only once with this issue before. Since the hosting company would not solve this, i have solved it setting mt own sessions:save path. THis is done by adding a line in the config.php file, something like:


ini_set('session.save_path', '/path/to/public_html/cart_folder/php_sessions');

which will store session details in the subfolder "php_sessions" of the "cart_folder"

However this requires some php programming knowledge as you need to also modify one of the carts files to be able to include this line in config.php each time a new settings set is saved.

It would be far more easier if your hosting company can fix this (they need to recompile php with the correct session.save_path )

Did you upload the new file "set_shipping1.php" in the admin folder as suggested ?? And when i say new, i mean that i have uploaded exactly 50 minutes ago.

No, you have left the Minimum Shipping Charges to 7 and Handling charges to 6 (7+6=13)

Two of your items have shiiping 3 and 4 and the others don't have any.
Further more you have set the shipping fees calculation to be based on Cart Net Value, so the per item shipping is ignored

If in the Admin area you are setting as Origin country US and it does NOT save it, it means that you STILL have the buggy file set_shipping1.php instead of the new one! Maybe you have downloaded BEFORE the update ?

Also it seems that you have not updated the code in Start of Page and in the HTML box of the "cart" page

As i said, you also need to replace the code in the HTML box.

Since i don't know when you built your "cart" page, it would also be wise to replace the countries dropdown (it has code embedded!)

Not easily- Please understand that if i make any change i need to do it in a way that it can be done easily though the admin interface. So this implies a certain volume of work as both solutions should be available, easily, to anyone.
PS. I noticed the time stamp on my emails are one hour ahead...can I fix that?
That's because that is server time. Again, changes are required to make this adjastable through the interface.

For now, you can add this line in the thankyou page:

date_default_timezone_set('America/New_York');


Replace America/New_York with your own timezone, as found in

Should be like this:



<?php
session_start();

ini_set('display_errors', 1);
error_reporting(0);
date_default_timezone_set('America/New_York');

require 'admin/config.php';
require 'admin/paypal_settings.php';

Rest of the code............

Web Shop Plus comments and questions

Post by Sandyfishgirl » Wed Jul 29, 2009 2:57 am

Comments on the WebShop Plus - -

KUDOS to Navaldesign for the TIME and EFFORT he has put into this program!! :D :D :D
Here I go! I have spent three days building part of a web store using the WB6 Web Shop - only to find it is no longer supported :cry:

So here I am to see how this new version works. I have read every thread, it does take some time. BUT - I have seen many questions I would have had - are already answered (the big one for me is tax in my state only - - I think the 'solution' may be to build the tax into the total price of an item. NOW, if I had products that cost 100's of dollars - they would be un-fair to everyone outside of my state. I think, smaller sales, under 100 dollars is not so bad??? At local shopping markets, MANY items are sold as a TOTAL amount - no tax break-down given. I would guess ? if they are a legal business, they do pay sales tax to the state? I will.)

My second thought was, will I be able to use what I have built in WebShop in the WebShop Plus. If I read this forum correctly - it may just be a matter of copy & paste :D

I also downloaded the Webshop Plus 2 manual. I will keep it open on my desktop as I upload the new shop zip file. Much of what I have seen so far looks "kind of" like an open source shopping cart I tried and gave up on. MAINLY because it was NOT easy to see how I could implement my OWN design into the cart. I have used WB5 and now WB6 to build over 10 websites, since 2007. I will say, I ALWAYS get help and very little 'scolding' when I don't understand something, here on the WB forum.

I don't write code & only know how to read enough of it to get myself in a pickle now & then :shock: ha ha!

OK - all of that said.... One of the posts in this section mentions, by Navaldesign
Especially when the upcoming versions


Does this mean there is a newer version coming soon?

and ONE more thing (for now) someone said
Navaldesign you need a paypal button....
I SECOND that! If he does not have a "donate" button on his site - maybe there is still a way to send him a few bucks for going out of his way, making changes to your web shop?

As I am just starting this project again, I'm sure I'll be back...

Well, I am trying the new uploaded file.
This is demo and the link is : http://shop.lucknowwebs.net/
Whenever I am trying this page : http://shop.lucknowwebs.net/products.php
and clicking on "Add to cart"... I am being sent to the "Cart" page though nothing is displaying but a blank page.
That is http://shop.lucknowwebs.net/cart.php shows a blank page
Any help! :cry:

The normal webshop still exists and probably support would also provide tech assistance. But there is an abbyss between the two versions in terms of features and user friendliness.
The big question for me is tax in my state only - - I think the 'solution' may be to build the tax into the total price of an item. NOW, if I had products that cost 100's of dollars - they would be un-fair to everyone outside of my state. I think, smaller sales, under 100 dollars is not so bad??? At local shopping markets, MANY items are sold as a TOTAL amount - no tax break-down given. I would guess ? if they are a legal business, they do pay sales tax to the state? I will.
The real solution would be to have a checkbox in the cart page, that should be checked by those customers. Checking it would result in applying tax to that sale. However since this is not a built in feature a small piece of code would be required for this.
My second thought was, will I be able to use what I have built in WebShop in the WebShop Plus. If I read this forum correctly - it may just be a matter of copy & paste
You can use thevisual part, but the code in ALL pages as well as in the Cart and Thankyou pages HTML boxes, as well as the hidden fields in the products forms, are changed.
I also downloaded the Webshop Plus 2 manual. I will keep it open on my desktop as I upload the new shop zip file. Much of what I have seen so far looks "kind of" like an open source shopping cart I tried and gave up on. MAINLY because it was NOT easy to see how I could implement my OWN design into the cart.

Webshop Plus was developed starting from the original Webshop. So, it is a WB6 project. With this said, you simply open the WB pages and make whatever changes are required to give those pages the same look as the rest of your site! Other Open Source carts are not specifically made for WB so it is hard to customize the look. This is not the case here.
OK - all of that said.... One of the posts in this section mentions, by Navaldesign

Does this mean there is a newer version coming soon?
Probably... But it will be a question of simply copying / pasting some code in your pages (to add features, like in example the State Specific Tax issue) OR uploading some files in the Admin Area.

As you understand this is a free project, and as such i only implement new features when i have spare time.
