    Help me develop killer One Page Checkout module

    Is it just me, or is the beginning of this thread missing? So can't see the links to the module

    Webservice problem

    Hosts finally admitted there was a problem with the "Glue" forthe nameserver. This has now been corrected so hopefully everything back to normal - well apart for the webservice still not working which was the original problem:(

    Modules and Services - Any recommendation

    Yep, it depends on what you NEED your store to do. Because of the nature of our products the ONLY module that is essential to us is the Advanced Search module to allow good filtering based on product features. Every thing else is icing on the cake Oh, apart from a reliable payment module of course

    Value of inventory

    Correct - strangely it is titled Available Quantities

    Webservice problem

    Thanks @datakick, @tommat Checked with our host who said we just have to wait for the propagation to get across the globe - (Weeks? Really? I understood a day or two) Errors of your customers related to missing DNS-record, but at the current moment, all record represent correctly, so it seems that DNS-record still propagates right now. All DNS-record for your nameservers represents correctly. I`ve also checked your DNS-record for domains u-bolts-r-us.co.uk and graphskill.co.uk and have not found any issue. $ dig u-bolts-r-us.co.uk A +short $ dig u-bolts-r-us.co.uk NS +short ns1.graphskill.com. ns2.graphskill.com. $ dig u-bolts-r-us.co.uk MX +short 0 u-bolts-r-us.co.uk. $ dig u-bolts-r-us.co.uk TXT +short "v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4: ~all"

    Webservice problem

    Is there a specific named log I should check? Not seeing anything in any logs I have found so far. So presumabky you are saying there shuuld be no specific server related issues that allow / disallow the webservice from working? The IP address was changed a couple of weeks ago so perhaps still being populated? TBH although we do have a VPS so theoretically we are in charge of these things, it is not really my skill set. Our hosts changed the IP address and then helped with all the setting changes but not sure if they got everything right or even how to check. We do still get some issues with emails etc. IP should be :

    Webservice problem

    Can anyone help? Really struggling with this latest update: This is not a firewall issue as I have disabled the firewall Webservice runs just fine. Going to website/API and entering the security key brings these results - for example: <orders xlink:href="https://u-bolts-r-us.co.uk/api/orders" get="true" put="true" post="true" delete="true" head="true"> <description xlink:href="https://u-bolts-r-us.co.uk/api/orders" get="true" put="true" post="true" delete="true" head="true"> The Customers orders</description> <schema xlink:href="https://u-bolts-r-us.co.uk/api/orders?schema=blank" type="blank"/> <schema xlink:href="https://u-bolts-r-us.co.uk/api/orders?schema=synopsis" type="synopsis"/> </orders> In the carrier system (parcelforce) I enter and test the key and it says the settings are valid. (Presumably it does what I do manually above) BUT when we click to import orders we get a message saying there are no valid orders to import This used to work, and still does with ebay / amazon. I cannot see any error logs. Carrier is not spotting any errors on there side My only guess is that there is a server setting somehwere that could be stopping this from working. My staff are starting to shout at me as they are having to type in all the courier orders. Can anyone offer any advice as to whaterver settings could be relevant here?

    Best way to find why my site is running slow?

    I can see the SSL Perhaps the images in the slide show are a little large which will slow things down Have you enabled cache and all the CCC stuff? This will help you investigate https://gtmetrix.com/reports/www.hagebasseng.no/rkahOETb

    Webservice problem

    Hi we use the webservice to send our orders to the carrier APi (Parcelforce) So in TB I activated webservice and generated the key. In the parcelforce website I added the store url (u-bolts-r-us.co.uk) and the key and all works well, and orders were appearing on the parcelforce website Something has changed a few days ago our host changed our vps ip address which gave us lots of issues slowly being addressed. But the one issue I can;t solve is that the webservice has not kicked in So, is the webservice linked to IP address somewhere? They have made some adjustments to the server and I wonder if some module / setting has changed . If I got to u-bolts-r-us.co.uk/api and enter the key it works But in the parcelforce system i get Your " Prestashop connection settings are invalid" So 1) Could it be an IP issue -where i can I adjust that? 2) is there a server module / setting that is required for the webservice to work remotely? BTW a few weeks ago i talked about a similar issue - but then it was the csf firewall getting in the way. That is not the case this time as I have tried switching off the firewall

    States Dropdown List

    Do you even need to type it in? We don;t bother any more for the UK. All our couriers, including RM accept just the postcode. We also use https://craftyclicks.co.uk/ so customers can search for their address and do no typing at all

    Payment errors

    Update - We have been getting IPN notices from PayPal recetly and they tie in. This is strange because in PayPal we have IPN disabled and I beleive the paypal module override this feature anyway However, I think this may be related to CSF firewall. I have allowed the paypal IP address through the firewall and will watch with baited breath to see if it re-ocurs

    CSF Firewall Advice with Webservice

    Ah, it's OK. Realised that we were effectively blocking the couriers IP address. Added that to the firewall and all is now ok (until they change their Ip address and i forget what i did - haha)
  13. We have a VPS which we have WHM installed so in control of the server - although I know next to nothing about this. Recently we were under a DDOS attack. I was advised to install CSF which we did and that has helped a lot A side effect is the parcelforce API system uses the thirtybees webservice to draw down shipping details for orders It seems the CSF firewall is blocking the webservice. Does anyone have any idea what settings I would be looking at that would be blocking this service?

    Text Attribute

    I have found a beautiful module that does this for you . Very cheap at only 750 euro You can see how it works here: https://www.configurateurvisuel.fr/en/html5/746-custom-cap.html and scroll down to the accessories section to see the module 🙂 Or You could combine my ideas of attributes and accessories (for the stands for example) with this method for adding text and images https://zemez.io/prestashop/support/how-to/prestashop-1-6-x-how-to-add-a-customizable-product/
