Tribulant Wordpress Shopping Cart - Canada Post Module



Issues with Tribulant Shopping Cart, especially with Canada Post module.  Need to set-up Canada Post Gateway account efficiently and integrate it correctly with Canada Post module? I re-wrote this module to work better, like the UPS module.  Be warned that the Canada Post module has issues.
Contact me for details and stories.



Tribulant implement the following free Canada Post shipping module

"It's been a long time. I don't remember when I did/updated it. I just checked the sf.net at http://sourceforge.net/projects/canship/ : last update at 2009, registed date was 2003."  Raymond Liang, May 03, 2012

Installing RubyGems in Cygwin



This is as much a reminder for myself as anything else – as I’ve now had to do this about a dozen times between repaving my laptop, home workstation, and work machine(s).

The How-To

Don't try to install RubyGems for Cygwin using the gem that comes with the Ruby One-Click Installer for Windows. Instead, get the tarball, or zip file, and install it using the included installer script.
Since RubyGems is pure Ruby you don't have to worry about having a compiler installed. It should just work with the default Cygwin install plus Ruby and its dependencies. To install it, do the following steps:
  1. Download the RubyGems tarball from Ruby Forge
  2. Unpack the tarball
  3. In a bash terminal, navigate to the unpacked directory
  4. Run the following command:
    ruby setup.rb install
  5. Update RubyGems by running the following:
    gem update --system
Note: You may need to run the updated command twice if you have any previously installed gems.

Google Analytics Tracking Code is Broken (as of Mar 2012)




Google Analytics Tracking Code is Broken (seen Mar 2012)
{script type="text/javascript"}

  var _gaq = _gaq || [];

  _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-########-1']);

  _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

  (function() {

    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;

    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';

    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);

  })();


{/script} --- note tag change


If http://www.google-analytics.com/ga.js is not loading for you I have a fix. 

Also in the ga.js code some references fail. 

I have a fix for this - $10.00.
