I am sending this again because my update (edit) question did not get answered.

A couple of days ago you showed me where to find the documentation to upload a shipping extension I purchased.

Total Based Shipping
Flat Rate Shipping Slabs

I uploaded them and it went fine. The second upload is simply an overwrite to the original files. An update for 1.5.4 and others.

In my shipping extensions I am supposed to see a new choice:

Flat Rate Shipping-Slabs

It is not there and I have no answers. I emailed the developer but you know how that goes.

Please help,

Hello Simon, and thanks for your question.

I apologize if an edited question of yours went unanswered, I do see where it looks like we emailed you with the installation instructions for the <strong>OpenCart 1.5.x Total-Based Shipping - Slabs v1.4 </strong> module.

From what I can tell it looks like possible these steps were not completed:

<p class="code_block" style="width: 500px; line-height: .8em;">1. Unzip and upload the following files to the root directory of your<br />OpenCart installation, preserving directory structure<br /><br />

admin/controller/shipping/medi.php<br />
admin/language/english/shipping/medi.php<br />
admin/view/template/shipping/medi.tpl<br />
catalog/language/english/shipping/medi.php<br />
catalog/model/shipping/medi.php </p>
I took a look on your account and the only <strong>medi</strong> files I'm seeing are:

<p class="code_block" style="width: 500px; line-height: .8em;">
/public_html/medi.tpl<br />
/public_html/catalog/model/shipping/medi.php<br />

So I would guess that in your admin you're not seeing the additional features due to the files in the <strong>/admin</strong> directory missing. Please try to add those files like the instructions go over and let us know if you're still not seeing the new option.
