I am not able to make this “/home/website/website.com/” work for product variations, has any of you succeeded?
It works for single products with no variations though.
@admin: I know you said to ignore it, but the errors are quite severe (visually).
The thing is, NONE of URLs in the “Additional Product Details” can be set to https.
Only the download link(s) can have https at the front.
Further, I am not sure if I mentioned this already, and I think it needs attention;
“Digital Product Variation” URLs CANNOT be set to /home/public_html/folder/product.zip, this path ONLY works for “Digital Product URL”. Worth mentioning?
@wzp: you said: “As for using SSL with the download script, I would only recommend it if (1) you have the server performance to handle it or (2) you are delivering downloads to buyers who live in a high risk environment, like China.”
What do you mean by “high risk environment, like China.”?
Can you elaborate? I am genuinely interested to learn something new.
Ok, I moving on…
I tried to figure out why some of the above player short codes weren’t working in fancy display/categories, and apparently it’s got to do with jquery or something…
So I added the following in eStore_misc_functions.php (I picked this files randomly, I felt attracted to it… no ideas though):
And now it’s working in [wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=1 STYLE=2].
So my questions are:
1) is this the right place to put the above code, or should I put this code somewhere else – where?
I tried inserting it somewhere in the php files in “eStore-extra-shortcodes” but it broke it and got errors.
2) how do I get the product description to show up in [wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=1 STYLE=3]?
I tried the 4 x players above in fancy display gallery and none of them work.
2 x of them break visually. 1 x is too big.
The only one that seems to be worth looking into is this one:
I tried [mp3t track=”email@example.com″ ind=”yes”] which is the lightest and smallest version of the short code, it doesn’t ‘break’ visually, but it doesn’t play either.
PS: it’s player example 3:
PPS: actually, this one works in “Text” mode: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/haiku-minimalist-audio-player/
First, I am please to say that I might not have to end up using the NexGen plugin, nothing against it thought, I think it’s a great plugin too.
Back on topic, mp3s, [short codes] and html5.
This is going to save the day “I think”: [wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=1 style=3]
But, as mentioned in the other thread, [short codes] won’t work with it, or to be more precise, it does not work with the “styles” that have the options to show some product descriptions.
So problem 1), is to be able to get the short codes for the players I mentioned above to work with it.
2) to get those short codes to work with the above short code ([wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=1 style=3]).
Then obviously, it’s to decide were to insert the short code, i.e; between the product name and price, above product name etc…
One more questions, how do I style the product title for the above short code? At the minute, it is italic.
All I can see is the code below: /*=== Fancy 3 css ===*/
Thank you. That’s a relief. But if you can easily update it one day to accept relative urls without the error, that would be great too.
Amendment (been cruising the forum for 2 days non stop !)
This might work [wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=1 style=3]
BUT, I am having issues with [short codes] with the other plugins I mentioned, so far I cannot preview mp3s.
Sorry if I kind of hijacked that thread, I’ll keep this topic for the other thread, I just thought it was a bit rude if I didn’t update on my findings.
PS: great art oriridraco + site.
I have got an issue:
“The URL specified in the “Thumbnail Image URL” field does not seem to be a valid URL! Please check this value again:”
The product page does not accept https OR relative links either.
I am “forced” to use http, but the whole site is going through SSL, so that’s not going to work.
I would like a grid like so, maybe 3 to 6 rows…
Small picture (click on it to take you to the product page), than just below the picture:
A title, then below the title:
maybe a short description or not… optional, then below:
I want to be able to add a [short code] for mp3 preview, then below:
A add to cart button.
Then Bob is your uncle.
I am aware of the features thank you. It’s a great cart.
How about a GRID mode for showing categories, that would be AWESOME, and being able to choose how many rows…
The thing is, it would be good to NOT have to install ANOTHER PLUGIN… (extra potential security loopholes, processing etc etc…), considering that the cart has an MP3 preview already, I though it would make great sense. Especially the iPads are becoming extremely popular and useful.
Some of these plugin have a very light code that could easily be implemented I think, I had a look at Audio earlier on, now I am going to test the last one. Brad Pitt is seating next to me BTW, he says hi.
At the minute, I am in setup/test mode, so came up with my own little “setup”, but seeing that the cart has got MP3 preview already implemented, gave me some new ideas.
Ah! Mine was about the “Thank You” page lol
I am actually deciding, wether I am going to use the Auto Return feature and PDT at all, because after careful considerations; NOT displaying downloading links on the thank you page might help preventing unauthorised Paypal access and/or related issues.
Yes I am aware of what you said. I am not talking about piracy. Anything non encrypted can be much more easily intercepted by hackers.
I have to say it again, I really like the look of this: http://www.jplayer.org/ BECAUSE it goes well my new Ikea furnitures.
PS: it also works for video apparently.November 10, 2011 at 6:43 pm in reply to: Player for Amazon S3 Protected files that Works on IPAD like Flowplaye #35559
Sorry, ignore, I didn’t realize this was for an other plugin.
