I have numerous ways to break up my research into articles.

So I hope I can create a dozen titles and find a way to test which would get the most clicks.

Any way to do this before I write the articles?

I am moving to WooCommerce and I am presently using Prestashop 1.5.  I have all of what I needed transferred over to the new site and cart.  With the exception, of the images.  Can someone tell me how I can export my images to a csv file which I can then import into WooCommerce?

I am on a Centos 6 server using php for the Prestashop installation.

Thanks,

Randal

Problems with the Etsy Platform, recently...

I have a friend who was doing well for years on Etsy, selling crafts and keeping busy, with a work backlog that was quite dependable. But then it shut off, like a light-switch.

And others I know who depend on Etsy also seem to have the volume of business shot off.

Is this a known problem?

Was there, perhaps, a software change that caused a problem that can be rectified?

Please give me as much information as you have to help me see if there is anything that can be done.


Thanks!

Looking for a Real Estate sales database

It would be pretty cool to find a database of property sales over the last 10 years (for example) in a certain city, and with the address listed.

Does such a DB exist?

I would need to get access to it so I can query it, not just do a single lookup on a website.

Thanks

What is the best time length for an online seminar?

I plan to give a live seminar that I expect will take up the morning, perhaps from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM.

But I want to offer this via the web also. It will be live, but wonder if people have different expectations for webinars?

I have been told it should be no longer than 2 hours. But this would force me to make a shorter version of the seminar, and I wold need to take out important information.

What are your thoughts about the length and if I really should reduce the amount of content?

Or, if I take breaks and let people stretch, is three hours of sitting about the same, regardless of where it is?

Thanks

I would like to create a simple on line shop.
Basically I can envisage the following.
User navigates to my shop site
Each product is on its own webpage with payment button options (eg. PayPal, Visa, Mastercard)
The payment button is clicked and then my page gets the confirmation payment is accepted.
Then I either navigate to another page for the download or send a link via email with download instructions.

OK. Hope it is clear so far.

Would Javascript be suitable with HTML for developing such a site?  A database (MySQL) would be available as part of the hosting - not certain if I need it though.

How can I hide the actual code from the person navigating to my site?  I would not want someone to be able to look at code like the following pseudocode:
If PaymentOK then goto www.MyDownloadIsHere.xyz
Because anyone could then copy the link and go directly to the download without paying.

Hi  

I have a client who needs a ticket/voucher/coupon management system for handling  

Physiotherapy sessions

 
The client has around 2000 coupons yearly and around 100 partner clinics

I will be referring to the client as company B

This is the current method:

Company A has employees with 10 coupons each,

Employee 1 from Company A calls Clinic A and orders a massage, Clinic A then contacts Company B and informs that Employee 1 from Company A has used 1 coupon.

Company B then registers the remaining coupons in an excel document, and forwards a verification to Clinic A

Clinic A then sends a verification, to Employee 1 from Company A.

 

Requested method:

The client (Company B) needs a system where the clinics can register and remove coupons from the individual employee from the different companies through a website

 
Nice to have:

The ability to send remaining coupons out to companies

A function for The Companies to be able to buy new coupons and see current coupons

I am using Site24x7 APM to monitor Magento website. It detected some exceptions messages which are "Error during unserialization", below is the stack trace:

Exception.Exception (C:\Web\Store-Production\lib\Unserialize\Parser.php:60)
Unserialize_Parser.unserialize (C:\Web\Store-Production\app\code\core\Mage\Core\Helper\UnserializeArray.php:44)
Mage_Core_Helper_UnserializeArray.unserialize (C:\Web\Store-Production\app\code\core\Mage\Sales\Model\Quote\Address.php:1094)
Mage_Sales_Model_Quote_Address.getAppliedTaxes (C:\Web\Store-Production\app\code\core\Mage\Tax\Model\Sales\Total\Quote\Tax.php:1477)
Mage_Tax_Model_Sales_Total_Quote_Tax.fetch (C:\Web\Store-Production\app\code\core\Mage\Sales\Model\Quote\Address.php:1027) 

Open in new window


Can I check what is this exception about and how to solve?

1. What does it mean and what does it affect? How to solve this?
2. If there are "Error during unserialization"exception happened, is the cause always same? Or it is case by case basis depending on the stacktrace?

This is the system specification:
Magento CE 1.9.3.3
PHP 5.6.31
Windows Server 2012 R2
IIS 8.5

One thing I love about customers is that they are divinely discontent. Their expectations are never static – they go up. It’s human nature. We didn’t ascend from our hunter-gatherer days by being satisfied.

That was my favorite part. :)

Google is promoting a new tool they've created for publishers, which appears to be a paywall service for ad-block users:
https://www.blog.google/topics/ads/helping-publishers-recover-lost-revenue-ad-blocking/

One of the more strict settings they support is essentially a hybrid of the WSJ model:
a message that blocks access to content until the visitor chooses to allow ads on the site, or to pay to access the content with either the site’s proprietary subscription service or a pass that removes all ads on that site through Google Contributor.

Here's the site dedicated to this service:

How to give web seminars securely?

When I give a web seminar, is it always possible for the viewer to record his desktop and snag a video of my desktop?

I assume it is.

I have no problem with that, unless it gets posted somewhere. Ouch!

But, what about the audio?

I suppose that would also "come along for the ride" if the person were using the web for audio. But wouldn't that be a bit tricky?

If the person was on a conference bridge using the normal telephone system, they'd need to match up the audio with the video. Also, a pretty simple things to do.

Am I worried for good reason? I hear of someone posts a video of my seminar, there is little I can do to stop it.

Curious.

Thanks.

Quickly getting sales for my in-person tours of Boston

I have a tour planned to provide an in-person view of some shocking discoveries I have revealed in my book. And I need to find quick ways to sell tickets.

Topics are very juicy... 9/11 and Boston architecture which heralded in the attacks, BEFORE 2001.

I would consider old-fashioned methods, like having someone hand out brochures in busy places. Advertising in publications, but that takes time to get established.


But I suspect the high-tech options are more scalable and cheaper.

I MAY use EventBrite to sell tickets since I want people to be able to buy tickets on their mobile devices, and really do not want ti reprograms my WordPress site, just to have a sub-optimal solution.

I will eventually need a FaceBook page, to help spread referrals. But I would consider prioritizing that Facebook page if that were to be the prime way to promote the tours.

What kinds of things should I consider when making my decision about how to promote and manage my tours?

Thanks

PayPal and/or Square?

I have a merchant PayPal account and a PayPal card swiper. And I am about to start offering in-person tours where I want to accept cash-less payments.

I need to accept as many payment methods as possible, and hopefully turn away no one.

Can I use PayPal to process credit cards without requiring someone to log onto their PayPal account?

Does PayPal accept AMEX and Discover?

If I purchased the EMV Chip Reader from PayPal, is there any reason to use SQUARE?

On a second note...

Does SQUARE offer a lower discount rate than PayPal?

I would consider using both PayPal and SQUARE if they have complementing services.

Thanks
