We regularly help people get OSCommerce installations set up. We sometimes write a custom piece, but more commonly adapt something someone else has started (no sense re-invention wheels right?). For a project I am working on today, I am looking for a modification for OSCommerce that will allow a customer to upload a logo or other image when they buy say, a can cozy. I found several things which look a little promising, but thus far not quite right.

I find a contribution that looks ideal:

File Upload .7 (for PA – Option Type Feature)

This is a file upload utility for use as an attribute on the product_info.php page. Using the standard HTML upload utility (FILE box with a browse button), one can upload a file and link it to a product as an attribute.

I tried it and didn’t get it functioning. It appears to be a little stale and OSCommerce has moved to osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2 Release Candidate 1, so perhaps that is causing issues. I also see that there are several bug fixes and I’ll go through those again slowly, maybe I missed something.

I also found a T-Shirt Program that looked hopeful, but before shelling out $150 I wanted to know if it is adaptable (because I am not selling T-Shirts). Anyway, I wrote them and no reply. That program is Custom T-Shirts” module for Oscommerce by Zaur Nagiev. Perhaps another user can share with me if they were able to use it in another fashion such as I want to do. I don’t really need the image preview like this product has, and yet, it might work well with or without the preview.

So any help would be appreciated!

    I did get the File Upload to work in the end. I backed up to the prior version of OSCommerce and then tried again with the help of a kind lady on the forum. I was missing that a modification was required to the ADMIN config file. I was making it to the main config file (which also needs a change).

    It is working well now. I think a couple of improvements could be made, starting perhaps with clearer instructions as there are several different versions and they are kind of merged together. Still a useful piece and I thank the contributor(s).

    Hi Don,

    I am one of the extremly frustrated people desperately trying to get file upload .7 to work. Can you let me know what you changed in the ADMIN config file to get it to work??

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    Hi
    I purchased the Custom T-Shirt Module. Found it a bit tricky to install but I contacted Zaur and he was extremely helpful and fixed the problem for me. I can’t praise him enough.
    Hope that helps
