"Blank page after Start Of Order Process in 3.0 "

I installed uShop trial 3.0 and everything works fine on Navigator 4.x (Windows and Mac).
IExplorer on Mac is not working at all and on Windows98 the page after Start Order Process always just stays blank. I checked the diagnostics and it all seems fine, I have no idea at all why it's not working (as said no problems with Navigator). Please help me out!!!

In regard to the blank page, I took a look at your site and think that the problem is related to the fact that you are using a codebase other than the default "../classes/" codebase. That is, instead of the default codebase, you are using the following codebase:

codebase="../../../classes"

If you do change that default codebase, the be sure to read section 3 on the following reference page:

http://www.uburst.com/uShop/codebase.html

In short, it will basically involve setting an additional "codebase" parameter in your uShopOrderButton applet and then changing the codebase on the "display_cart.html" page that is located in your classes directory.

That is:

1) Add the following parameter to your uShopOrderButton applet:

param name="codebase" value="../../../classes"

and

2) Open/edit the "display_cart.html" page that is located in your "classes" directory and change the codebase of the uShopJSI applet on that page to:

codebase="../../../classes"

.... And that should correct your Windows 98 version of IE.


As for the Mac version of IE, we are still trying to develop a work-around for a bug with that browser. So far, our best guess is the new "Threaded" version of the shopping cart ... which can be seen in "TEST 1" at the following Mac Test Site:

http://www.uburst.com/uShop/mactest3/

TBD on that.

2 . "Change Of Codebase"

Thanks for replying, but here's another complaint:

uShopTM is a Java-based Online Shopping System that offers the ultimate in flexibility when designing your web pages!

Your slogan, right? Got to be kidding with a stiff catalogue structure like ../classes/
This means even if I do your proposed change of codebase procedure all my products need to be on exactly the same directory distance (id. no ../../classes/ if I set the general code base to ../../../classes as you propose)???

If so, I guess sales on uShop 3.0 might never take off...

You can make as many different html product directories as you want.... named whatever you want.... they all just have to be on the same directory level. See the following reference page for more information:

4 . "Change Of Codebase - The Sequel"
Posted by Thomas Schilling on Sep-07-00 at 08:07 AM (EST)
Ok, I gave it a try, I changed to:

APPLET code="uShopOrderButton.class" codebase="../../../../classes/" PARAM NAME="codebase" VALUE="../../../../classes/
as here: http://www.guitarshop.ch/en/shop/frames/cart/set.html

and oh wonder, everything seems to work alright, even though I have different codebases on some product pages like here:
http://www.guitarshop.ch/en/shop/frames/set.html I use
applet code="uShopInput3.class" codebase="../../../classes"

and on
http://www.guitarshop.ch/en/shop/frames/pedals/set.html I use
applet code="uShopInput3.class" codebase="../../../../classes"

They all show up correctly on http://www.guitarshop.ch/en/shop/frames/cart/set.html
So what's the fuzz?

But have you tried it on various browsers/operating systems? Based on what we have learned since uShop's release in 1997 is that in order to maximize browser compatibility, it is recommended to keep the codebase of all of your applets exactly the same.
