I got it working with Paypal. I tested it on the Paypal sandbox, got to the successful payment page on Paypal. When I click on the Return to Store button. It just keep loading and never leave the Paypal page and seem to freeze there. Then, I can no longer access my site with this same browser session (even if I open a new tab). I have to close the browser altogether and open it back again in order to access my Silverstripe site.

I'd appreciate if anyone can tell me how I can fix this.

Hi there,

I've been trying to get this ecommerce module installed but keep on hitting a brick wall. I get the error:
Website Error
There has been an error

The website server has not been able to respond to your request.

This happens everytime I run /dev/build (inc ?flush=1). I have tried installing both ecommerce and payment module seperately and end up with the same result. I'm running SS 2.3.3.

I've run out of ideas as what to do - any help appreciated!

petejeveritt: run your site in dev mode, or set up an admin email, and you'll be able to find out what that error actually is.

Many thanks - you're a life saver!

I'm a bit of a newbie and wouldn't have thought of that!

Thanks again.

just got another couple of questions:

1. I'm wanting to remove the cart option as I'm installing the module for a client who hosts parties (i.e. they want to advertise their products, but not sell them via the web) how can I do this as I cannot seem to find the code that controls the "my cart" displaying on the sidebar. Is this possible?

The second question may not be for this forum, but I have put 2 images on the header and nav of the site, and SS is insistant on putting a slight grey line around them - is there any way I can get rid of this?

If you want to see what I mean check out

Many thanks,

Hi Pete,

To get rid of the "my cart" part, you'll need to find the template (.ss) file within the ecommerce templates folder that contains the "my cart" html. Make a copy of it, and put it in your own template directory. Make the necessary changes, and this will override the old template.

As for the images, I don't see any grey line.

I apologize if this has already been addressed -

I was very happy to see that this release of the E-Commerce module used jQuery instead of prototype, but blocking all the prototype js in the checkout page also breaks the AJAX validation... is there a plan to add validation via jQuery? For now I've done it manually, but it would be nice if it happened automatically.

jhirm: I believe the next version of SS (2.4) aims to use jQuery for validation.
