View Full Version : Geekmart install perceptions (vb3.0.8)

just a few QUICK thoughts:

The geekmart seemed to install fine, just like all other geek products :D however when I add a category/product, and then click on the item I get an error 404 page, adn the URL in the browser looks like this:


when I add in the geekmart.php I can see the product, of course, but the link from the category page brings me a link like mentioned above.

The settings were a little hard to figure out on my own, but with the help of a few posts here I think I got them figured out. I think it would be nice to have an example after each setting. It would be extra fancy schmansy to have the script fill in the "best guess" for each setting, but an example or further definiton is needed either way. For example: your home URL- is that with/without trailing slash? Is that the home URL of the geekmart.php script, or is it the Home URL of my site/forum? I have a feeling that this may be where my above problems are coming from...

I also don't see any options under "option" on the dropdown in the products pages in the ACP

Instead of a "PayPal URL" setting it might be helpful to have a "Sandbox/Live" tickbox since that setting will basically use one of 2 URL's for that setting.

It would also be nice to have a "view store" option from the ACP.

The "your Geekcart from Geekmart" phrase when adding a category is a little obscure- it would be nice to have better phrases, such as "item successfully added," etc..

any idea what could be causing this error mentioned above? I am still yet to get this setup properly.

try rebuilding your phrases

that did the trick. I should have known better - I always do that as a matter of course. Thanks.
