i assume its just a warning but it doesnt seem to be doing any harm...
i would like to know how to switch it off or fix it... here is a snippet

Simply by adding these missing variables (text and others) where they belong.

Caused by an installed VQMod extension.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

thank you for your suggestions...

however...

since

the site is functioning correcly for users and my customer I am loathe to make any change which is even vaguely risky and

I am not the original developer, I know nothing about plugins which were installed by the previous developer who (a) has not documented his work nor (b) willing to share that with me (understandably in some respects) nor do I have sufficien knowledge to attempt to correctly reinstall the plugins nor have any php knowledge to know where to set variables or how to set them...

so sadly i was looking for perhaps a way of preventing these being rported in the error log.
maybe you cannot.

add this to your catalog/language/en-gb/en-gb.php

Code: Select all

$_['text_itemsno']              = 'itemsno';
$_['text_itemstxt']              = 'itemstxt';
$_['services']              = 'services';
$_['icon']              = 'icon';
and see if that gets rid of the warnings ?

you can change the text to your liking, its a hacky workaround if you just want to get rid of the warnings

And for others like google_analytics you could simply edit the controller.
It seems you are using some old files.

Do not know from where do you have the template.
The variable google_analytics exists since OpenCart 1.5.x - therefore really old.
But you have:
2019-06-19 9:07:30 - PHP Notice: Undefined variable: google_analytics in /var/sites/t/themeatingjoint.shop/public_html/tmjb/vqmod/vqcache/vq2-catalog_view_theme_netbiz_template_common_header.tpl on line 70
Which means this varibale/value is not defined inside the controller, but the template is trying to use it.

Why this variable is not defined in the controller - I do not know.
But it should be.
As written - edit the controller for this.

Newer files?
Was just an assumption.
The whole issue looks to me not very professional.

Why can't you change it?
If you are not comfortable in editing files, hire some professional.
But this small tasks do not require any high paid pro.
No matter if it's yours or anothers template.

it is not a small job - i already have had two teams seperately check it and comment that core files and the template files have been extensively hacked...

simple changes are having unexpected effects elsewhere... besides the customer has no budget for ANY change except if the site is broken.

Which is why core files must never be modified in the first place.

Sorry, but this thread is about that few log entries.
And this IS a small job fixing them, maybe 7-12 minutes - not more.
If these two teams are not able to fix that few lousy entries, they are not worth the money!
Because they do not understand how OpenCart works.

And (!!) as straightlight already mentioned: never touch a core file!
If any of the forum readers here will ever meet a developer doing so, fire him as quick as possible!

Have you edited admin or catalog file?
Nevertheless, I recommend to hire some of the real OpenCart pros here.

If no investment are involved with your planning and support projects for your clients, then you should not consider to use an ECommerce platform to sale products and services online without a pre-determined budget to reach your goals. By using an ECommerce platform, product licensing are involved with service providers which means if you're able to spend your monthly charge via your service providers, then you are already not working for free at this point.

Straightlight
you are being pedantic but I will respond to your points...
the client had budget for development but business circumstances have changed (he has started a prison sentance.. ) his wife is running the business with heavy legal costs to deal with.
themeatingshack.shop is my test site for the business.
Yes there are costs which I have reminded her she will incur but there is absolutely no budget to pay for my time or a developers time or anything else.
I was loathe to describe this detail let alone any further detail, but I do feel an obligation to help as best as I can without incurring costs (they are fundamentally decent people) but I need to explain where I am with this project.

I do have a vested interest in using my experience with these guys to develop an enhanced product for a niche market ... but that will be at my cost.

hopefully that clarifies.
