  2. The friendly URL will be a pattern consisting of just the product's name. But you need to have CubeCart dump all those previous names (see earlier post). If you do not want CubeCart to create a friendly name for you, you can enter in the text field whatever you want.
  3. As always, bsmither, you came though. So, my "Add category to product URL path?" is set to 'yes'. If set to 'no', what happens to the URL? Thank you very much. I really appreciate it.
  4. There is a setting in admin that has CubeCart automatically prepend the category path to the friendly name of the product. Such as: test-category-04/test-category-05/test-product-5 This is found at Store Settings, Search Engines tab, "Add category to product URL path?" The complete path is then databased. To clean all this out, in admin, Maintenance, Rebuild tab, check the " Clear all custom defined SEO URL's" and Submit.
  5. You could leave your store online and leave a message on front page informing customers and then just untick any payment processing module so that that they do not show or work so cannot accept any payments or orders.
  6. ... I´m talking about "send" button on contact form ... after reCaptcha confirmation-the form stays freezed - you can hit button how much you like - the form stays filled with information, and the button doesn´t react at all..... Without reCaptcha, everything works just fine. Would you like me to send you a private message with link to "contact-us" page? ps: - how I mentioned, this is happening only on this page after reCaptcha ... Thank you. K. R.
  7. Sorry to bother you nice folks, but I can't figure this one out. I added a new Category in Admin section. I'll call it 'B'.(number 6) My products were all under Category 'A'. (number 2). I went into the database and changed all cat_id to 6 from 2. Back in admin section, I confirmed all products were now in category 6. On the website, if I hover over the image of a product, it shows that it wants to append the old category to the URL. If I click on the picture, it has the old category in the URL and sometimes the picture doesn't appear until I reload the page. Sometimes the image appears very small until I reload the page. This happens on 3 different browsers. Again, products in admin show the new category while clicking on the product on the website shows the old category. I cleared cache, sql, and images. What did I miss? Sounds like I forgot to update something.
  8. It is impossible to give a definitive answer as it will be different for each site and even for different pages within each site, however, the generally accepted timeframe is that anything more than one to two days of downtime will affect rankings. Matt Cutts and John Mueller from Google have both made public statements about this previously. You would be much better off, keep the store open and putting up a prominent banner on all pages and changing customer order emails, stating that orders taken between X and Y dates will not be processed until Z date - that way you don’t lose ranking and hopefully not orders or future custom either Ian
  9. I am having issues with paypal gateway, it is returning customers to the cart missing the address. Has anyone else seen this issue?
  10. Does the error message say the mail was not sent, or actually that the reCaptcha failed? "the button on contact-us form" Which button? The reCaptcha or the "Send Message" button? Generally, if the visitor passes a reCaptcha test somewhere on your site, CubeCart remembers this and no further tests are required elsewhere on your site.
  11. Last week
  12. SOLVED I may have spoke too soon. After I upgraded to v6, I copied all the files from /pubic_html/mywebsite/cubecart to public_html/mywebsite. Everything seemed to work except for one small item. The 'home' icon on the home page, shows the proper URL. i.e. www.mywebsite.com. However when I click on any of the menu items, it goes to the proper page in public_html/mywebsite. BUT when I click on the home button on any other page, it goes to pub_html/mywebsite/cubecart. I did search here, but did not feeling confident of any of the suggestions. My .htaccess file in the Foundation directory simply says 'Deny from All'. I solved my problem. When the update happened, it apparently wiped out my .htaccess file and added one that said the above. I simply had to copy a corrected .htaccess file to my website and now it works properly.
  13. Just wanted to thank everyone and to let you know that all went well. With your help, it turned out to be a MUCH easier task than I expected.
  14. Hi, I have another question about form on contact-us page. I enabled yesterday ... in Store Settings-Bot Protection-Google reCaptcha v2 (the Invisible option). Everything is working just fine with reCaptcha other pages in CubeCart (examp. shoping cart), only on this page / "contact-us.html" - "contact form" doesn´t want to send a message (reCaptcha images are choosen corectly - all right) . Can you check, please? Thank you ps: - btw ... for example, when you first confirm recaptcha in order/shopping checkout page ... after that - the button on "contact-us" form works ok.
  15. Hi all, I am going on holiday for 2 weeks and just need to find out what would happen if I put the store in offline mode, in that time will the google search/ranking change in that time ?
  16. An edit to the skin: in element.call_to_action.php or content.product.php (depends on the skin). Look for: {if isset($PRODUCT.discounts)} <p>(<a href="#quantity_discounts">{$LANG.catalogue.bulk_discount}</a>)</p> {/if} Change to: {if false && isset($PRODUCT.discounts)} <p>(<a href="#quantity_discounts">{$LANG.catalogue.bulk_discount}</a>)</p> {/if}
  17. Hi All, There doesn't seem to be a solution for this so how do I prevent from displaying completely Best Regards, Peterp
  18. If you are still using the admin.php and /admin names then you don’t need to do anything for the upgrade and the upgrade itself will change these for you so you will have admin_aBcDeF.php for example. If you already have renamed versions and don’t follow that copying procedure correctly, the upgrade will rename then again and you will have two copies of each being the old and new versions. Many people have gotten in a real mess having, two, three or even more different admin files and admin directories all from different versions which then causes all sorts of unpredictable errors Ian
  19. Thank you. That clarified it for me. You, and other members of this forum are extremely helpful.
  20. Here is a slightly reworded version found on a different upgrade article: So, if your current installation has a script file named admin_aBcDeF.php (and this is corroborated in /includes/global.inc.php), then before you FTP the files and folders to your site, you must rename admin.php to be admin_aBcDeF.php. The same renaming of the to-be-uploaded folder /admin/ to be /admin_zYxWvU/ -- then FTP the files and folders so that the uploaded admin file and folder will overwrite the existing same-named admin file and folder. (Note: _aBcDeF are random letters.) Therefore, if your current installation has an actually-named admin script file admin.php, and an actually-named folder /admin/, then this renaming step is not needed. The FTP'd script admin.php will overwrite the existing admin.php, and the FTP'd folder /admin/ will overwrite the existing /admin/.
  21. According to the official upgrade KB article, this step (2) seem ambiguous. What is it telling me to do? IMPORTANT: If you renamed your admin folder or admin.php file you must do this prior to uploading the new files and your store will work as before According to that statement, If I renamed my folder or file, I must do what? If I didn't rename anything, then I should ignore that statement?
  22. OK. That makes sense. I'll be doing that tomorrow. If you don't hear back, that means everything's fine and than you.
  23. Simply follow the procedure as I outlined, then remove everything from public_html except your CubeCart sub-directory. Then move everything from that sub-directory up one level into public_html. The only thing you may need to change will be the RewriteBase directive in the .htaccess file to remove your sub-directory
  24. Thanks, havenswift-hosting. However, you're missing what I'm confused about. I've read all about upgrading on the cubecart website and here in the forums. I don't simply want to upgrade what I have. I want to install cubecart6 as my main website in public_html, replacing my current website, which is NOT cubecart in public_html. My current website has a button that directs users to my cubecart5 directory, under public_html, when they want to purchase something. Currently users go to my website, then can click through to my cubecart directory. I want my users to go directly to my NEW cubecart6 instead of having to go to my website first. I hope that makes it a little clearer.
  25. Firstly, you should rename your skin to something other than foundation - details in the support knowledgebase on the CubeCart website. You definitely dont want to do an "install" and do want to do an upgrade - follow the V5 to V6 upgrade and then simply copy up your now renamed version of foundation into the skins directory. That way your database is preserved and upgraded to V6 and in future you can upgrade core CubeCart without any danger of overwriting your custom skin. You ideally will check each release for skin changes done to foundation and then apply these to your custom skin.
  26. I sure could use some advice on how to accomplish the following. I'm running a website that is running cubecart5. In other words, my website files are in public_html and cubecart5 is in a folder called cubecart that is called from a link in my website. I want to start using cubecart6. However, I'd like to replace my website with cubecart6. In other words, I'd like to have the cubecart6 files directly in public_html, replacing my website. I downloaded cubecart6 to my home computer, made some modifications to files in the 'Foundation' skins folder and got it working just the way I want it. So, how do I replace my production website files with the cubecart6 that I have installed on my home computer? I don't want to upload all the files from a new cubecart6 package, then run update. Then upload my modified Foundation folder because that will just upgrade my current cubecart5 to cubecart6, which I don't want. I believe I want to wipe my production website files from the public_html folder, upload all files from a fresh cubecart6 package, then run 'install'. After it completes, replace the production Foundation folder with my modified version. However, if I run 'install' will that affect my current database of products? What's the best way to accomplish this and still retain my database and admin settings? Thanks
