I had a return URL specified in my Paypal settings, so when I removed that it worked just fine.
Yes, WP eStore is a VERY smart plugin. Thanks for your help!
Thanks, Peter. I do get the updates when I notice a problem with my site (I figure there’s an update for that) or I’m browsing the forum looking for solutions and notice reference to an update (after which I check my version against the latest on the page your reference).
What I am wishing for, I guess, is a proactive notice about the release of an upgrade, with or without details, so I can check it out,
Thanks for the reply, though.

Thanks, Peter. I should have know this was already detailed…August 19, 2012 at 7:38 pm in reply to: Suppress the display of the "protect content" message #48513
Poked around a bit more and found this addition to the “protected” shortcode, which seems to work as I want:
[emember_protected for=3 do_not_show_restricted_msg=1]
The “msg” doesn’t seem to have an effect if changed or deleted. Should it stay?

Another thought (I wish there was an “edit” function on posts!)
If no workaround, then I’ll use the “/?wp_eStore_add_to_cart=11” code to redirect each product “purchase” button straight to the checkout page, which upon testing, works well.
So I guess I answered question #2.

I’ve done some further testing and found I can “chain” the redirects to get what I want. For example:
1. Product page adds product to cart, redirects to OTO page;
2. OTO page adds OTO to cart, then redirects to checkout page on separate page with my desired text.
http://howtocreateahappierlife.com/checkout/ (cart only, or with my text, no repeat of 2nd page text)
This will work just fine. Thanks for the help.
However, is there a workaround to #2 in my previous post?

Thanks for the reply. I see how it works now. I was a little confused about the cart statement.
The OTO page properly refreshes with both products displayed in the on-page card. Very clever. I’ll need to rework the page to be less confusing, but I can see it working.
1. Is it possible to direct the OTO page to a separate page with the shopping cart and different text, rather than showing OTO + updated cart?
2. I notice (and should have realized) that unclicking “redirect to checkout” is a global setting that affects all product sales. I’m guessing the OTO flow we’re discussing isn’t possible without that result. So either all my products must redirect in this way, or none can (and I’ll need to come up with another solution to the OTO flow)?

I unchscked the “automatic redirection” and it no longer redirects. to the checkout page, which is good
However, after clicking “Add to Cart” on fhe OTO page, it still does not go to the checkout page. It does seem to add the OTO to the cart, just no display.August 11, 2012 at 9:25 pm in reply to: How to add OTO and Original Product to Cart at once. #48244
I tested the text link method and it doesn’t seem to work. Perhaps you can offer some guidance. Here are the details:
Product page and OTO page are the same as stated above. Cart page is “/checkout/”
“Add to Cart” link on product page is: Click Here to Buy
According to the directions, when clicked, should add the product to the cart, then redirect to the OTO. However, when clicking the purchase link, it goes straight to the checkout page with the product added — but no redirect to the OTO.
I’ve double-checked the product ID and is correct.
There is no URL in “Button Link” in product settings, but doesn’t work if there is one.
I downloaded and installed the latest version of WP eStore and the extra codes plugin.

Thanks, guys. i think the tex link method will work for me best. I’ll test it out today!
That fixed it! Funny how the littlest things trip you up.
Thanks very much!

Coming back around to this after dealing with some hosting issues.
Yes, the docs clearly say not to mix up the parameters, something I overlooked. Silly of me….
I must say the level of support I received for this was astounding, including time spent rummaging around my site to see what I had done at hours I wouldn’t expect from support. Thanks!March 9, 2012 at 12:04 am in reply to: Error "This product does not have any downloadable content" #42454
That would be great. Reply coming to you.March 8, 2012 at 10:16 am in reply to: Error "This product does not have any downloadable content" #42452
OK, I’ve narrowed this down a bit.
Seems that on bundles, Admin Functions is ignoring the first file, whether it’s a full URL or product ID, then generating links for the remaining files.
So, any entry in Digital Content Details like this:
Generates links for just product 2 and 3.
My workaround has been to simply change the product IDs to a full URL on each instance of download details.
What a bother.
This is new behavior for the plugin. My host reports they can download the files. Safari works now (after cleaning up files and restarting my computer), but the error message remains (unless I change out product IDs).
Ideas as to why this is not working any more are appreciate, but I do have it working now.March 6, 2012 at 3:26 pm in reply to: Error "This product does not have any downloadable content" #42450
To answer your questions:
Yes, the error item is part of a three-file package.
I did follow Method #1, which is what I usually do when upgrading. To be sure, I reloaded the complete upgrade folder after deleting the old version through WP Admin, per Method #2.
There is only one copy of the plugin in the directory.
The download URL is correct per my FTP program (Fetch).
I’ve checked the download file by putting the URL in the browser’s address bar. It will download in Firefox, but throws a 404 error in Mac Safari.
It still will not generate a download link in Admin Functions.
I’ve queried my host about why the URL won’t work in Safari.
