  • Attribute Configuration

    Attribute Configuration


    “商品特性”能允許您在某一項產品上,預先設定可供顧客在訂購時選擇更合適的產品細節,而且有效減少收到訂單後的種種跟進工作。

    例如您正在售賣的西褲,應該具備不同的“顏色”、“腰圍”、“褲長”等,以供顧客選購,而透過“商品特性”的預先設定,您便可自定產品選擇上的各種“選項名稱”和“選項值”。

    當完成設定所有的“商品特性”後,您便可參考及使用下一節指南介紹的“商品特性管理”,逐一為指定的產品套用合適的“商品特性”。

    為有效管理“商品特性”及避免日常汲及的產品管理及訂購單出現混亂,強烈建議在開始設定“商品特性”前,細心採集相關的資料,及草擬所有特性的架構。

    這些“商品特性”建議於未進行“產品新增”及“匯出、匯入資料”前的初始設定時一併處理,而由於某一特性將來會被套用到產品售出後的訂單資料,所以商品特性一經輸入和套用,不應刪除以避免無法正確查閱訂單資料。

    進入“商品特性設定”管理:
    • 點擊主選單的“分類目錄/產品管理”

    • 點擊左選單的“商品特性設定”

    每項“商品特性”包含的資料:
    • 商品選項
      特性的“中英文”名稱,最多32個字元,請盡量簡短,例如“顏色”、“尺碼”、“褲長”(必需輸入)

    • 選項值
      • 選項名稱
        已建立的選項所屬特性名稱

      • 選項值
        “中英文”的選項值名稱,最多32個字元,請盡量簡短,例如“紅色”、“大碼”、“42吋”(必需輸入)


    針對“商品特性”的動作:
    • 增加
      新增一項“商品選項”或“選項值”,在新增“選項值”前應預先完成新增“商品選項”

    • 編輯
      修改已經建立的“商品選項”或“選項值”,例如更改名稱

    • 刪除
      將該“商品選項”或“選項值”刪除,此刪除動作只針對“商品選項”或“選項值”資料,不會把原有產品刪除

    注意事項:
    • 名稱相近的特性或選項值請盡量歸納,避免設定過於沉長和混亂的架構

    • 設定前務必預先集相關的資料,及草擬所有特性的架構

    • 不可在“商品選項”或“選項值”的名稱內包含或使用符號,以避免跳脫字元影響資料庫存取

  • E-Voucher Approval

    E-Voucher Approval


    若您的“線上商店”提供可選購的“電子禮券”,基於保障原因,必需經由管理員進行批核,以確保訂購的付款交易無誤,才存進顧客的電子禮券帳戶。

    如接獲顧客購買“電子禮券”的訂單,務必確認有關的付款交易已完成,方可批核顧客的“電子禮券”。

    “電子禮券”與“優惠禮券”的差別:
    • 電子禮券
      跟現金相同,不含任何使用限制,顧客可付款自購,或由管理員簽發

    • 優惠禮券
      可設定若干行使限制,並只能透過管理員簽發

    進入“顧客禮券批核”:
    1. 點擊主選單的“電子禮券/優惠禮券”

    2. 點擊左選單的“顧客禮券批核”

    每項“顧客禮券”包含的資料:
    • 購買客戶
      購買電子禮券的顧客姓名

    • 購買金額
      購買電子禮券的面值(銷售金額)

    • 訂單編號
      相關的訂單編號

    • 購買日期
      相關的訂單的購買日期

    確認“顧客禮券”的程序:
    1. 點擊欲檢視“待批核名單”旁的“確認禮券”

    2. 如訂購的付款方式屬“線上付款”,例如信用咭、PAYPAL(貝寶),請到達相關閘道並檢查交易是否已完成,其他付款方式則亦請檢查有否收妥款項

    3. 如付款証實無誤後,點擊“確認”按鈕,或按“返回”放棄確認

    4. 確認完成後,系統將把相關價值的電子禮券存進顧客的“電子禮券帳戶”內,並同時寄出通知郵件給對方

    5. 此時顧客已可隨時使用禮券的價值訂購產品及結帳,或將“電子禮券”轉寄給親友

    注意事項:
    • 您的線上商店必需有銷售電子禮券,方會產生這篇所述的待批核顧客禮券

    • 若需設定產品屬可供購買的“電子禮券”,只需在型號輸入以大寫英文“GIFT”為首,例如“GIFT100”,而禮券的售價便是面值,請參考“產品管理”

    • 禮券一經確認,將直接存進顧客的“電子禮券帳戶”內,無法以其他途徑改變面值或刪除

    • 顧客付款購買的電子禮券,不需通過“啟用編號”使用

    • 顧客可於同一項訂單內,包含電子禮券及其他產品一同結帳

    • 顧客可重複購買電子禮券,相關的面值將疊加於原本面值

    • “電子禮券”可視為現金,顧客持有的面值適用於所有產品而無任何限制,若顧客持有足夠的禮券面值,結帳時可全數替代應繳金額,甚至適用的手續費

    • 若顧客於結帳後仍有禮券餘值,可於下次購物時繼續使用

    • 顧客可將持有的禮券面值自用,或轉寄全部、部份面值給親友當現金使用(轉寄後的收禮者仍需按照正常程序登記成為會員及結帳)

    • 顧客持有的“電子禮券”只適用於您的“線上商店”

    • 由於沒有途徑修改顧客持有的“電子禮券”資料,所以在您的商店產品內,例如銷售的電子禮券,應註明“不可折回現金”

  • Forum Manager

    Forum Manager


    在線上商店設立“討論區”,能有效幫助提升瀏覽量,進而令產品銷售業績達至更高峰。

    專屬的“討論區”與一般外部連接的常見討論區具有很大的差別,因專屬“討論區”能跟商店風格完全配合,而且商店內的會員可直接參與討論,無需再次註冊,所以無論討論的會員與管理員均可輕鬆操作。

    由於專屬“討論區”屬實時互動,所有在線的會員都能根據自己的喜好,參與不同話題的討論,會員之間亦可表達到產品的用後感,這樣更能節省會員發出向商店查詢的數目。

    若您希望為會員提供理想的討論環境,那必需事先花點心思,開設多種不同話題的討論分區,並且多抽時間參與討論,這將能讓會員感到商店的熱誠服務。

    由於“討論區”屬實時運作,所有會員發表的訊息將直接張貼顯示,但有些情況例如會員張貼負面訊息、違法內容、不可接受的廣告等,管理員便應盡快修改文章,甚或刪除之避免帶來負面影響。

    進入“討論區總管”:
    1. 點擊主選單的“訊息中心/電子報”

    2. 點擊左選單的“討論區總管”

    新增討論區:
    1. 點擊主螢幕的“增加”按鈕

    2. 輸入相關資料,例如“主題”、“說明簡介”

    3. 選擇合適的狀態

    4. 完成後按“增加”或“儲存”,或按“返回”放棄新增動作

    每個討論分區包含的資料:
    • 主題
      討論分區的主題名稱,最長32個字元,例如“購物心得分享”(必需輸入)

    • 說明簡介
      討論分區的簡介,最長256個字元,例如“請發表您對本店產品的使用心得”(按需要輸入)

    • 狀態
      討論分區在商店的展示狀態,請選擇“顯示”或“不顯示”

    • 接受張貼狀態
      討論分區在商店的文章發表狀態,請選擇“開放張貼”或“禁止張貼”

    • 排序
      若多於一個討論分區,請安排各分區的上下排序,數字越細代表排列越高

    針對“討論分區”的動作:
    • 開放狀態
      點擊狀態列的“綠色”或“紅色”按鈕

    • 編輯
      修改已經增加的討論分區資料

    • 刪除
      將該討論分區和當中的所有文章資料刪除

    • 進入
      管理討論分區的文章

    管理討論分區的文章:
    1. 在討論分區點擊“進入”或“討論區主題”

    2. 進入後,點擊文章的“主題”或“編輯”

    3. 進入後,點擊希望管理的主題文章,或該主題的回覆文章

    4. 點擊“編輯”進行修改,或點擊“刪除”把文章刪除

    如何建立超級討論區會員(管理員):
    1. 在商店頁面,使用您的管理員專用的電郵地址,以正常的會員參加程序,建立一個會員帳號

    2. 利用這個帳號登入商店,並前往討論區發表新文章,或進行回覆

    3. 發表後的文章,在文章發表人的稱名前,將顯示標緻為“管理員”

    注意事項:
    • “討論區”的內容和主題,只屬互動性質的額外資訊,不會構成對產品銷售和其他功能的影響

    • 所有發表的文章的動作,必需由已登記的會員進行,不能透過匿名方式張貼文章

    • “討論區”必需建立完成,方能讓會員進行討論

    • 討論區沒有限制主題和文章的數量,但當中的資料將佔據資料庫和您的可用硬碟空間,所以應定時刪除過舊的文章以節省儲存空間

    • 管理員不應發表或回覆違法、欺詐、中傷、誹謗、淫褻、色情、褻瀆、恐嚇、污穢、討厭、令人反感或其他不良或過分的資訊

    • 我們不會對討論區的文章內容提供支援或維護服務,當中包含的文章與我們無關,若文章內容導致任何法律責任或損失,均由業務擁有者承擔

    “電子報”系統有別於一般的電子郵件行銷方式,由於使用電郵發放訊息,往往無法追蹤收件人是否已經檢閱內客,以至不能掌握宣傳訊息的有效性,而且通過普通電子郵件,較難建立精美的內容,同時也無法為每封電郵通訊附帶大量圖片。

    而我們的“線上商店系統”則內建設計貼心、使用簡易的“電子報”系統,除方便管理外,更具備以下特點:
    • 使用模版技術,為每項電子報提供不同的風格,而且模版由重復套用,省減每次重新設計的煩惱

    • 只要準備“電子報主題”、“標題內容”、“選擇產品”、“頁底內容”文字等,即可輕鬆建立全新的電子報

    • 系統提供簡易的產品挑選方式,無需再逐項貼圖、建立連結

    • 產品排列具備每行展示一件至三件的選擇,靈活而容易觀看

    • 每項電子報可重復發佈,並且具備發佈數量與實際檢視的比率追蹤

    • 以電子郵件寄出的電子報只包含文字內容及HTML,其他圖片仍儲存於伺服器,所以每封電子報的檔案體積十分細,不會過份佔據收件者的郵箱空間,並能有效快速開啟郵件

    • 每封電子報可附加取消訂閱的超連結,讓收件者自由選擇使用,避免引致收件者帶來煩惱



    進入“電子報”管理:
    1. 點擊主選單的“訊息中心/電子報”

    2. 點擊左選單的“電子報”

    透過浮動按鈕到達不同區域:

    • 電子報模版
      編輯修改內建的模版,或輸入自已設計的模版

    • 寄電子報
      向適合對像寄出電子報,或繼續寄出尚未完成寄送行動的電子報

    自訂或修改電子報模版的圖片路徑例子:
    所有在電子報顯示的圖片,必需正確上傳至伺服器,否則收件者將無法檢視。

    針對“電子報內容”的動作:
    • 編輯
      修改已經建立的電子報資料,例如更改主題名稱、轉換宣傳的產品

    • 刪除
      將電子報的內容、追蹤記錄、線上檢視版本刪除,此動作不會影響已成功寄出的電子報郵件

    針對“電子報模版”的動作:
    • 編輯
      修改內建的預設電子報模版風格,或修改自建電子報模版風格

    • 刪除
      將修改過的預設電子報模版回復原狀,或刪除自建電子報模版

    針對“寄電子報”的動作:
    • 繼續未完成的寄送

    • 強列建議使用內建的預設電子報模版,可令制作電子報過程更輕鬆簡單

    • 由於設置“自訂電子報模版”及修改“預設電子報模版”的HTML屬進階功能,若設置出錯,將令電子報不能正常顯示,所以強列建議由專業及具經驗者進行,而我們並不提供上述的免費支援服務

    • 除“獨立套裝軟件”及“開發版軟件”,所有線上商店均屬共亨資源,一般繳付“月費”或“年費”租用型式的線上商店,寄送電子報的行動仍受“「電子郵件」政策及「電子郵件」限制是怎樣的?”一節所述,並請遵守我們的服務條款進行任何電子郵件操作的指引,意指大量寄出電子郵件時,您必需採用分批寄發,並在非繁忙時段進行,如違反我們的“電子郵件寄出”指引或服務條款,您的線上商店將在不另行通知情況下,被停止所有運作,敬請留意

    • 由於寄發SPAM (垃圾郵件)有可能觸犯法律,請在寄出電子報時了解收件者和對像是否願意收取您的訊息,並必需在電子報內包含取消訂閱的方法及標籤

  • Transferring your website to Focus Network Company

    Transferring your website to Focus Network Company


    Already hosted with another provider? Want to move your website to Focus Network Company?

    This tutorial will outline the steps required to migrate your website and email accounts to your new account in Focus Network Company.

    • Step 1 - Backup your files
      First of all, you need to download the site from your old host. You can do this in one of two ways:
      • Backup your site through Plesk
        If your old host uses Plesk, and the Backup feature is enabled, you can download your entire site in a couple of clicks.
      • Backup your site via FTP
        If your host does not use Plesk or they do not have the backup function enabled, then you should backup your site using FTP. Typically you need to connect to your website via FTP, download your www or public_html folder (the names for this folder differ; it is the folder that contains your website).

        The tutorials below will show you how to connect and transfer files using the popular free FTP client software.
        1. Download and install FTP client software, such as Filezilla, CuteFTP, WS_FTP
        2. Connecting to your website with FTP client software
        3. Transferring files to/from your website with FTP client software

    • Step 2 - Backup and restore your MySQL databases
      If you do not have any MySQL databases, you can skip to Step 3.

      To transfer MySQL databases from your old host to Focus Network Company, there are two methods you can use:
      • Backup/Restore MySQL databases via Plesk
        This uses the same Plesk function as the file backup section does. you can backup your database in a couple of clicks.
      • Backup/Restore MySQL databases via phpMyAdmin
        If your host does not use Plesk/the backup function is disabled, you can backup and restore MySQL databases using phpMyAdmin. Follow the tutorials below for instructions on how to import and export MySQL databases in phpMyAdmin.
        How do I export or backup a MySQL Database
        How do I import a MySQL Database / Creating or Importing a Database

    • Step 3 - Upload your files to your account
      Now you need to upload your files to your Focus Network Company account. If you backed up your files using the Plesk backup feature, you can upload them easily through your Plesk by following the tutorial above ("Restoring Data From Backup Archives").

      If you backed up your files using FTP, simply connect to your account using FTP client software and upload your files into the httpdocs folder.

    • Step 4 - Create email address on your account
      Before you point your domain to your Focus Network Company account, its a good idea to create the email addresses through Plesk first. Simply create the email addresses you want on your account by following the tutorial below:
      How to setup Your Emails on PLESK Control Panel / Creating Mailboxes

    • Step 5 - Point your domain to your account
      By this point your account with Focus Network Company should mirror your account at your current host; you should have uploaded your site files and MySQL databases and created your email accounts. Once you are sure you have completed all the steps above, its time to change the nameservers of your domain.

      Login to your domain control panel at your registrar and modify the nameservers for your domain to the ones we sent you in the welcome email.

      • Below are our DNS information:

        ns1.powersx.com
        ns2.powersx.com
      How to point my existing domain name to "Focus Network Company" server?

      Once you have done this, wait for your domain to propagate. This can take between 6-72 hours, depending on your location. To see if your domain has resolved correctly to your Focus Network Company account, type your domain name into the tool below and hit Lookup. On the next page scroll down to the Whois Record section. If the Focus Network Company nameservers are listed here, then your domain name has resolved.

      http://www.whois.sc

      Check your domain name is displaying correctly, and then proceed to the next step.

    • Step 6 - Cancel your account at your old host
      Once you have updated your nameservers and your domain name has resolved correctly, you can cancel your account at your old host.

      Make sure you backed up all your files; getting data back after you have cancelled your service with a provider can be quite difficult.

    • Congratulations, you have succesfully moved your website to Focus Network Company!

  • PHP - How to define magic_quotes_gpc

    PHP - How to define magic_quotes_gpc


    You can Enable / Disable magic_quotes_gpc for php in your account by setting this directive in .htaccess in httpdocs folder:

    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc On

    or

    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off

    The magic_quotes_gpc is a function which automatically escape $_GET, $_POST and $_COOKIE variables. This cause a lot of (poorly written) PHP scripts out there which blindly rely on magic_quotes_gpc, to be wide open to various SQL/XSS-injections.

    If you run a website that relies on magic_quotes_gpc for escaping user input, we strongly recommend that you disable access to such scripts until a version fixing this bug is released.

    By default magic_quotes_gpc was turned off.

    微軟證實Hotmail個人資料遭竊取


    根據BBC(英國廣播公司)報導,微軟公司的Windows Live Hotmail遭到網絡黑客入侵,超過萬個hotmail客戶資料遭到竊取,這些資料多數來自歐洲,微軟並證實遭竊取的密碼都是正確的。

    科技網誌neowin.net說,黑客除了盜取帳號密碼之外,又把盜取到的資料全數公布到網路上,超過上萬個hotmail帳戶的細節,2009年10月1日被貼上一個讓人分享密碼的網站pastebin.com。

    Neowin聲稱這些帳戶可能是被黑或是利用網路釣魚搜集而來。網路釣魚攻擊者利用發送釣魚郵件給受害者,受害者點選後,會被導向釣魚網頁,就會洩漏了個人的機密資訊給予攻擊者,如個人的信用卡號碼、密碼、帳號等。

    微軟目前表示,他們已經知悉此事,並正在積極了解及處理中。這件事透露出網路資訊安全的疑慮,若果個人資料遭到竊取,可能會有更多後續麻煩的事端。

  • 「.tel」域名時代來臨,勢成全球電話簿

    「.tel」域名時代來臨,勢成全球電話簿


    所有個人或企業,於2009年2月3日起可以註冊「.tel」域名,作為對外溝通的渠道。這新域名特別針對流動上網,據報道,美國意大利法拉利車廠與《哈利波特》小說作家羅琳、微軟公司等等都已率先註冊該域名。

    「.tel」域名的特點是讓企業將所有聯繫方法,如電話、傳真、電郵等放在「.tel」,讓網民更方便與企業聯絡,甚至直接透過網站撥打電話或發送文字短信。企業還可以用它通過即時消息(Instant Messaging)工具、博客平台甚至語音電話(VoIP)服務等低成本通信渠道來降低其成本,從而做到既省錢又能加強客戶服務。

    「.tel」域名不同其他網域名稱的部分,在於不需有自己的IP,就能直接有完整網頁的呈現,並透過創新技術使得網頁內的聯絡資訊或關鍵字得以直接儲存,並同時被大眾所查閱,在透過其他常用軟體的支援下,點選EMAIL, MSN ID, SKYPE ID 或地址, 都能呈現極佳的互動效果。

    Telnic表示,他們會以「先到先得」的方式處理申請,預計一些極具吸引力的域名將很快會被搶購一空。

    全球網民在香港時間2009年2月3日23時起,就可到Telnic的網站 http://telnic.org 登記,每個.tel域名售300美元,為期3年,之後每年20美元。

    How do I access my webmail (Check emails using a browser)?


    You can read your mail and compose new messages even if you are far from your home or office computer. To do this, you first need to allow access to the Horde Webmail interface that is integrated with your control panel. Then you can work with your mail from any computer with Internet connection and Web browser installed, or a WAP-enabled cellular phone or a handheld computer (PDA).
    To login to your webmail use the following url:

    http://webmail.yourdomain.com

    *where yourdomain.com is your domain name.

    Login details are your email address and password you setup in your control panel.
    This is the perfect Webmail program, which comes with all our web hosting plans, so you can access your emails anywhere in the world.

    • Compose and send emails

    • Read your incoming mail

    • Email search facility

    • Address book

    • Calendar and events

    • Save work as a draft

    To login to your webmail use the following url:

    http://webmail.yourdomain.com

    *where yourdomain.com is your domain name.

    The login name is the full email address i.e. you@yoursite.com and the password is the one you setup when you created the email in PLESK.

    Login details are your email address and password you setup in your PLESK control panel or Online E-Store System.
    If you also use an email client like Outlook Express to check your mail and still want to access the mail with Horde, make sure you check the option to leave mail on the server. If you fail to do this, all your mail will be downloaded to your email client and won't be accessable via webmail with Horde. Please be aware though that leaving your emails on the server will increase your used disk space as well.

  • B2C (Business-to-consumer)

    B2C (Business-to-consumer)


    B2C (Business-to-consumer), also business-to-customer, describes activities of commercial organizations serving the end consumer with products and/or services.

    The two main challenges faced by B2C e-commerce are building traffic and sustaining customer loyalty. Due to the winner-take-all nature of the B2C structure, many smaller firms find it difficult to enter a market and remain competitive.

    In addition, online shoppers are very price-sensitive and are easily lured away, so acquiring and keeping new customers is difficult.

  • E-Mail

    E-Mail


    Electronic mail (abbreviated "e-mail" or, often, "email") is a store and forward method of composing, sending, storing, and receiving messages over electronic communication systems.

    The term "e-mail" (as a noun or verb) applies both to the Internet e-mail system based on the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) and to intranet systems allowing users within one organization to e-mail each other. Often these workgroup collaboration organizations may use the Internet protocols for internal e-mail service.

  • TIFF (Tagged Image File Format)

    TIFF (Tagged Image File Format)


    Tagged Image File Format (abbreviated TIFF) is a file format for mainly storing images, including photographs and line art. Originally created by the company Aldus, jointly with Microsoft, for use with PostScript printing, TIFF is a popular format for high color depth images, along with JPEG and PNG.

    TIFF format is widely supported by image-manipulation applications such as Photoshop by Adobe, GIMP, Ulead PhotoImpact, and Photo-Paint as well as Paint Shop Pro by Corel, by desktop publishing and page layout applications, such as QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign, and by scanning, faxing, word processing, optical character recognition, and other applications.

    TIFF was chosen as the native format for raster graphics in the NeXTstep operating system, and this TIFF support carried over into Mac OS X. Adobe Systems, which acquired the PageMaker publishing program from Aldus, now controls the TIFF specification, although it has not had a major update since 1992 (several technical notes have been published with minor extensions to the format).

  • Font

    Font


    In typography, a typeface is a coordinated set of glyphs designed with stylistic unity. A typeface usually comprises an alphabet of letters, numerals, and punctuation marks; it may also include ideograms and symbols, or consist entirely of them, for example, mathematical or map-making symbols. The term typeface is often conflated with font, a term which, historically, had a number of distinct meanings before the advent of desktop publishing; these terms are now effectively synonymous when discussing digital typography. A helpful and still valid distinction between font and typeface is a font's status as a discrete commodity with legal restrictions, while typeface designates a visual appearance or style not immediately reducible to any one foundry's production or proprietary control.

    The art and craft of designing typefaces is called type design. Designers of typefaces are called type designers, and often typographers. In digital typography, type designers are also known as font developers or font designers.

    The size of typefaces and fonts is traditionally measured in points; point has been defined differently at different times, but now the most popular is the Desktop Publishing Point. Font size is also commonly measured in millimeters (mm) and inches.

  • GIF (Graphics Interchange Format)

    GIF (Graphics Interchange Format)


    GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is an 8-bit-per-pixel bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability.

    The format uses a palette of up to 256 distinct colors from the 24-bit RGB color space. It also supports animations and allows a separate palette of 256 colors for each frame. The color limitation makes the GIF format unsuitable for reproducing color photographs and other images with continuous color, but it is well-suited for more simple images such as graphics or logos with solid areas of color.

    GIF images are compressed using the LZW lossless data compression technique to reduce the file size without degrading the visual quality. This compression technique was patented in 1985. The controversy over the patent licensing agreement between the patent proprietor, Unisys, and CompuServe in 1994 led to the development of the PNG (Portable Network Graphics) standard.
