First question I got is Which is the best iPage hosting service provider? with or without shopping cart service? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. My 2nd question... I've got an OSCommerce cart set up. I used the simple template system and it works ok up to where I want the tellafriend box. Rather than post the form, only the variable shows up. Does any one know why?.

URL: www.doctorrivka.com/shop.

Also, the way they charge for shipping is dependent on what type of product they are selling. For Instance, if it's a tape, shipping will be 4.95, but if it's a video, it will be 5.95. Does any one know of a contrib for this?.

Thank You all..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..

Thank you ozcsys,.

That fixed it. But then my next question is: Is there a way to have the Tell A Friend form always on regardless of the page?.

Also, where can I change the title of the page? I haven't been able to find it. I don't want the title to say osCommerce..

Thanks..

The tell a friend is setup to let someone tell about specific products so it should always show up on your product pages. There is probably a way to change that but I am not sure how..

You will find your title info english.php file look for.

// page title.

Define('TITLE', 'osCommerce');.

You should really click on the link in the top right hand corner and read through the docs they will help you quite a bit...

Thanks again. I've looked at the knowledge base, but it doesn't state anything about shipping. I mean it's real simple. I have tapes and videos. they each have a different shipping rate. The tapes is 4.75 and the videos is 5.75.



Shipping on Tapes are 4.75 for the first and 1 for each additional tape..

Shipping on Videos are 5.75 for the first and 1 for each additional video..

I haven't found anything that shows how to do a shipping charged based on category. I mean I could do it by giving the two items a different weight, but then when a customer adds two tapes or a tape and a video, it won't calculate correctly..

Thanks..

There is no $tellafriendbox tag for STS you might want to look at the readme for supported tags. The tell a friend box is alternated with the specials box depending on what page is being viewed and is added to the template using the $specialfriendbox tag...
