  1. Can you believe that CubeCart has been around since 2003? What started out as a small project has snowballed powering thousands of stores globally. If you have a success story you would allow us to publish we would be truly very grateful if you could share it with us. We need new merchants to realise the potential they have using CubeCart. This will help contribute to further growth, new features and an all round brighter future for everyone. Please feel free to email me personally at [email protected] with your company name, store URL and short success story of upto say 300 words. Many thanks to you all for your support.

  2. Dear Customers / CubeCart Community, It is with regret that after 3 years of providing content for CubeCart i intend to discontinue my skins and support. As per agreement i am issuing a 30 Day Notice period which will expire on 07/02/2022 (Existing customers have also been notified via email). After this date support/updates for my skins will no longer be provided by myself. I have spoken with Al and decided to donate the skins to CubeCart for free so that they don't go to waste (for which i am greatful to Al for accepting). It is my understanding that the skins will be released for free under CubeCart who will be the new owner/maintainer of the skins. This isn't the news i wanted to start the new year on and understand this may cause some concern and disappointment but i need to ultilize my time for work and my personal life and web development no longer fits in with this. What does this mean for your site? Your site will remain to function as normal and you are free to continue to use any skin you have purchased from me for as long as you require. In the event your purchased skin becomes incompatible with CubeCart in the future it will be your responsibility to make any changes or seek a 3rd party to assist. Alternatively, switch to the re-release version once released by the CubeCart team. Where can i download the latest version of my skin before the deadline? To avoid new customers from purchasing any skins i have had to unpublish them from the marketplace, please send me a PM or Email and i'll provide details how to obtain the last version released. (Please note - Only default versions of skins will be issued, please allow upto 24 hours for any requests to fulfilled .) Any questions or concerns please feel free to reply below, send me a PM or email, Best regards,

  3. Thanks for all the help with me developing and changing my skin, your help was always friendly and responsive. I've also downloaded the manual updates and would suggest anyone else to do so if you have a Nitefox's default skin but then gone on to modify it. (Just incase you ever need to reinstall at a later date). Wishing you well in all you do.

  4. Feeling very humble. Thank you on multiple levels. Other skins and extensions have just vanished so I'm hugely grateful firstly for dealing with this so professionally and responsibly. Secondly thanks for such a wonderful contribution to the open source community. I know for sure I can pass on my utmost respect and gratefulness from a significant proportion of CubeCart merchants that may not outwardly share it. I'd personally like to wish you all the very best with you new career move in the charity sector. I hope we can keep in touch.

  5. Using a text viewer, examine the contents of /includes/global.inc.php. The file will indicate the name of the administrative PHP script and the administrative folder name that CubeCart expects to use. Be sure those names appear in CubeCart's main folder.

  8. In the skin's config.xml, find the <image reference="category">. It is set for 800 pixels on the longest dimension. Change this to 900. It will auto-scale down to fit the container (which is 848 px wide). Next, you will need to find the CSS rule (I do not know where it would be.): .cat-hdr-img img { margin: 0px auto 5px; } Change to: .cat-hdr-img img { margin: 0 0 5px; } This CSS change will remove the margin that the browser adds to either side of the image, in equal part, to center the image in the slightly wider container. Be sure to clear Cubecart's cache.

  10. rework global configuration file found in /includes/ with your new database details. setup/restore database to new location. upload all files. adjust permissions of uploaded files. as a basic test, you can validate those permissions by uploading the latest setup directory from the installer and validate they all report OK. test...

  11. Well it's been a long week. New ventures meant I needed a more suitable web shop solution than the manual input Wysiwyg web builder I have used for the last three years. I have had 'proper' shopping carts in the past, but the web has moved on a lot in recent times with far more people using mobile devices to access content nowadays. The Wysiwyg web builder meant I had to design different layouts for different screen sizes by hand, which was a total drag. I have lost count of how many shopping cart solutions I have looked at over the last couple of weeks, but found many that no longer had viable download links (never a good start) and discovered many obsolete programs still out there, that are no longer developed and with subsequently no support network. During my forays I found out that my XAMPP server that allows me to test websites locally on my own computer was utter crud after recent 'upgrades', so moved to a WampServer which is wonderful in comparison. Anyway I eventually drew up a list of potential shopping carts. The one feature I wanted above all others, was an easy checkout process. Hesitation, confusion or complexity is no good for quick cash flow. Those in business will tell you, there is no business till you have the customers cash in your hand. The offerings I looked at included Woocommerce, Zen Cart, Opencart, Abantecart and of course Cubecart. All had their plus and minus points and some features which will appeal some some people, but not others. What did surprise me though is the flaws I found with some of the bigger players out there. Woocommerce I just found weird and confusing, Zen Cart still looked very dated and out of touch with its customer base, with many of the free community shared plugins conflicting with each. Most surprisingly of all Opencart seems to have created endless problems with its 'twig' modules in version three. Even the 'fix patch' didn't work and I couldn't even get one compatible skin (theme) to install without a plethora of error messages. Would I really want that on a live server? Answers on a postcard to..... That left it as a direct shoot out between AbanteCart and Cubecart, both of which are good programs with similar features and to their credit neither of them 'fell over' during testing. Looking at the programs on my offline server setup though, AbanteCart had nearly three times the number of operating files to Cubecart and more importantly a footprint of nearly 80mB, compared to Cubecart's sprightly 27.6mB. Where that becomes important, is if like myself you have more than one site on the same server space. Anyway before this turns into a saga, I had to do a lot of research and had a few long computer chained sessions often going beyond midnight these last few days. Making a bad choice with ecommerce software has the potential to make or break a business. I decided to go with Cubecart over everything else, as I found it very easy to work with. I didn't find it a stressful experience as unlike many others, it just worked flawlessly and did what it was supposed to do. I particularly like the fact you get a core program and just add the bits you want instead of being burdened with a pile of stuff you'll never use. From the front end view, the customer has a layout that is easy on the eyes, is straightforward to navigate and the checkout process is trauma free (and quick). That's the whole point with shopping carts though (or should be). Cubecart won't tick everyone's boxes, but having done the endless research, there are a lot of products out there that simply aren't fit for purpose. Been a long week, but time for a cold beer and unwind session....

  12. The developer will probably / should be releasing a new version of the skin to take account of all of the skin changes included in this recent version. However, if you are using a modified version, then that update will not automatically apply to your store and you should chat to the developer about this. If you dont make all the front end skin changes then you wont be able to take advantage of any fixes / new functionality that has been added - you may say that you dont need this functionality but it is always best to stay fully up to date because the situation simply gets worse and worse with each upgrade that is released - this is the problem with having custom changes

  15. Email routing will automatically be set to "Automatic" or sometimes "Local Mail Exchanger" which in 99.99% of cases will be the same thing. You only need to set it to Remote if you are using external MX records pointing away from your hosting company which is effectively what Godaddy are forcing you to do by closing email ports. Some people choose to use gmail or other email service providers, but why should you have to ? Disabling php mail() is standard practice now for security reasons (WHM built in security advisor flags this as a high security risk if it is enabled !) and SMTP should always be used and configured to use SSL / TLS. Email sent via SMTP is much more secure, more likely to be delivered and not rejected or put into spam and isnt complicated to use. So much so, I would recommend that php mail() is removed as an option in CubeCart as it is very likely to disappear as an option in the near future Ian

  16. For anyone that uses git with CubeCart (or any other packages for that matter), cPanel have been adding a huge amount of functionality which will be included in V68 - see https://features.cpanel.net/topic/allow-users-to-install-websites-from-version-control V68 is already in Edge release status so most people will not have access to it yet, but V68 should be into general release in a few months (V66 has just been released in the last week) Ian

  18. The 'top menu' is the "Navigation" bar (or sometimes "Shop by Category" box). The menu is built from all the categories (enabled and unhidden) there are. There are also three special items: Home, Sale Items, and Gift Certificates. To add any other links to this group would require editing the skin template "box.navigation.php".

  19. If you have CubeCart's debug mode enabled, turn it off. I *believe* that switching off Debug mode will quiet the PHP8 Warnings (used to be Notices in PHP7). As for Google, please see: https://github.com/cubecart/v6/issues/3047

  20. Recently had to change the password on a friend's Outlook 2013 (which does not do OAuth like Thunderbird). Now, I have not actually done this for my development installations of CubeCart yet, but I have every expectation that this will work. What you need to do is to acquire an "app password" for your "less-than-secure" app (as Google puts it). See: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833 To do this, you will need a cell-phone. In your GMail account settings page, find the Security section. Enable "Two-step Verification". (This is not as bad as it sounds.) This is only to verify that the person doing this process is, in fact, you. Google will text a code when you begin the process of generating an app password. There should now be a new option in the "Signing in to Google" section for App Passwords. Select this option. On the App Password page, choose Select App, and for the name of the app, choose something like FettleBox Store (something in one or two words to describe what you are to use this app password for). Then choose Generate. The 16-digit number in a yellow banner is what you will enter in CubeCart's SMTP Password field (the banner shows spaces between each set of four digits that are not part of the password - do not include the spaces). This is all how it worked for Outlook 2013. I expect it to also work when wanting to use GMail as the SMTP server for CubeCart.

  23. We can assume that the mailer-daemon[at]localhost is a system put in place by your hosting provider. So, begin by creating a support ticket with them. There will probably be no indication about what was objectionable in the email's content, so we cannot attempt to "work around" the issue by changing the wordings of the email phrases.

  25. Determine if the following statement already exists in the templates 'main.php' and 'main.checkout.php': <link href="{$ROOT_PATH}favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon"> If it is not there, add it just before the </head> tag. Next, acquire a square image you want to use. Upload it to a free online ICO file maker, such as: https://www.icoconverter.com/ Place the .ico file in CubeCart's main folder.

  27. A 500 ISE is very likely caused by the web server disagreeing about something regarding the request. In this case, we can likely blame a security application that is screening for character strings that match known attacks. Your hosting provider will need to examine the security application's logs to see if it triggered the 500 ISE.

  31. I am wondering if, somehow perhaps a bug in the code, installing de-DE "over" the existing de-DE language pack, didn't actually overwrite the existing databased content of the email-contents with the contents of the new file of that incoming language pack. (Unlike the language phrases that exist in a file in a language pack, the phrases of the email-contents file of the language pack are all databased.) I will check on that. In the meantime, you can sort the above listing and delete all rows having 'content_id' equal to or greater than 26.

  32. CubeCart is not "very complex software" at all (try looking at Magento, OpenCart, Prestashop or most of the other packages) and is much simpler to use from an admin point of view than most. Is it missing a few things, yes of course but so does every single product out there but @Al Brookbanks does a fantastic job developing and maintaining this. There are many thousands of sites using it successfully including some with large large turnovers or taking hundreds of orders a day. The various problems you are having are likely down to how it was installed or upgraded and the hosting environment you are using @Nebojsa this is a case in point - what Brian has pointed out is something that is clearly shown on the version notes in this forum as a manual change that *may* be needed

  33. I see the problem now is that the command to start the BXSlider: $('.bxslider').bxSlider({auto:true,captions:true}); is being executed before Modernizr loads the actual script, even though the loader is above the start command. So, let's do it this way instead: In the file script.js, make this edit: From: $(document).ready(function(){ $('ul.sf-menu').superfish(); }); To: $(document).ready(function(){ $('ul.sf-menu').superfish(); $('.bxslider').bxSlider({auto:true,captions:true}); }); Then, in main.php, remove the recently added: $('.bxslider').bxSlider({auto:true,captions:true}); and change the order of filenames: "https://www.diffgif.co.uk/skins/e-tone/js/enquire.min.js", "https://www.diffgif.co.uk/skins/e-tone/js/superfish.js", "https://www.diffgif.co.uk/skins/e-tone/js/jquery.bxslider.js", "https://www.diffgif.co.uk/skins/e-tone/js/script.js" Because script.js has changed, you may need to force your browser to reload page resources.

  35. You will need to find the appropriate template. I think it should be main.php. Look for: <div id="{$SECTION_NAME}Sec"> <div class="row"> <div class="large-3 medium-12 small-12 columns"> Change the third line above to: <div class="large-3 medium-4 small-12 columns"> A few lines later: <div class="large-9 medium-12 small-12 columns"> Change the line above to: <div class="large-3 medium-8 small-12 columns"> You may need to have Smarty clear its skin cache. As it is for Large, both divs sit beside each other because their sum equals 12 columns. At Small and Medium, each div takes all 12 columns, so they stack (actually, at Small, other layout features come into play). By making sure, at Medium, the two divs sum up to 12 columns, they will sit beside each other.

  39. You installed CC5.2.16? When you say you have "migrated the store", you mean to say you did not copyany code from another version of CubeCart overwriting what was already there? If you can get into that CubeCart's admin, view the Maintenance page, Query Database tab. Don't do anything on this page - just look at the info shown just above the Query Box. This is the database server host and username. Next, click Maintenance again, Database tab. The list of tables will show the name of the database as prepended to the table name. Find CubeCart_inventory. How many records does it show? If there is 1 record, then what you are looking at via phpMyAdmin is not the same database (or database server) as what is in the /includes/global.inc.php file.

That pink for instance is probably ffc0cb It's crude and cumbersome but works.

  42. In store settings/advanced, enable debugging. Place a dummy order and check the debug log in the bottom of your browser to see if there are any errors being displayed. In the file root of your store create a file named ini-custom.inc.php and paste the following code inside. <?php # Custom initialization commands # Filename: ini-custom.inc.php # File location: main CubeCart folder ini_set('memory_limit', '256M'); ini_set('max_execution_time', '60'); ini_set('error_log', 'error_log'); ini_set('log_errors', 'on'); ?> try to place another dummy order, and then check error.log in the file root of your store.
