Mals E-Commerce nightmares and finally, a solution!
03 June 2008
Users of the Mals E-Commerce suite of actions have been having a hard time using the actions with the hash encoding function coupled with the multi-price select lists. The issue is that the cart will always refuse the link validation saying and display a simple error to the user.
Here at FreewayActions.com we've been pulling the action set apart looking to resolve the issue and over the lat few months most of all of the actions have been in parts at some point or another. Requests for help to the Mals forum resulted in a lot of helpful replies but no solution.
We were pretty much ready to give up on this when early this morning (1am) we got an e-mail from Mal himself saying that he had spotted an error in the shopping cart and that the hash encoding should now work as planned.
Sure enough all of my sample files started working again!!! Thank you Mal!
This morning I started work on revising the action parts that would need to be updated and I've just finished the first version of the 1.5b beta action.
If you are a registered user of the Mals Suite and would like to test this beta action then please get in touch.
I'm hoping to roll this version of the action out to all registered users once we pass testing and documenting the revised feature set.
