  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

Try this: In includes/ckeditor/config.js, at the bottom, find: config.allowedContent = true; }; Change to: config.allowedContent = true; config.coreStyles_italic = {element : 'em'}; config.extraAllowedContent = 'i[*]{*}(*)'; }; CKEDITOR.dtd.$removeEmpty = '{i: 0}'; The same added statements can be used for other HTML tags used in unorthodox ways.

  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

  17. This is the first time using this cart. Like it a lot, easy to work with and the CMS feature is excellent, my previous cart didn't have that. Didn't customize too much but happy with the way it came out. Don's Vintage Audio Feedback welcome!

  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. CubeCart version 6.4.6 is now available. This is a maintenance release with full PHP 8 and 8.1 support. This release is backward compatible to earlier PHP versions so your hosting environment doesn't need PHP 8 or above to run it.

  22. For your collection of images in the CSV file, please use this specific format (it is assumed this text string is enclosed in quotes - as shown - as it exists in the CSV file): "catalogue124/02.jpg,catalogue124/04.jpg,catalogue124/05.jpg" CubeCart will insist that images (with sub-folder path) mentioned in this string must eventually exist in /images/source/. Thus, only that distinctive part of the path/name can be allowed. Until Github issue #2923 is solved, do not have spaces following the commas, and do not use leading periods.

  23. CubeCart is very good at figuring out where it is. But this is based on what the web server tells PHP in the $_SERVER array (you can see this array in admin, PHP Info, near the bottom). Clear the cache first (as CubeCart wants to use the FQDN URL in the HTML snippet having the list of categories and was cached). So, just tell the web server (vhost file) what new domain name it is to answer to, keeping the 'rootdoc' directory the same.

  26. No that would make sense because the thumbnails are new. GD isn't very clever and will remove the orientation preference. The source image is unchanged and the browser probably does respect the orientation preference.

  27. Hey @radman The W3W compatibility notice in the admin panel is cosmetic - Providing you enter your W3W info it will work as intended. It's just in the admin panel it looks for a certain skin file to determine whether or not its compatible, however for the updates i approached it differently so the certain skin file isn't there. As for the other issues, i can only assume something might have been edited incorrectly during your update, i can't seem to load your site (503 Service Unavailable) at the moment so i can't check whats going on.

  28. Yes - in core an admin entered order is not available for payment. This is one feature that our Enhanced Admin Order plugin does offer though - take a look at all the other features here : https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/plugins/enhanced-admin-order-entry

  30. Please look at Store Settings, Features tab, at the bottom is a Miscellaneous section. Try having "Allow physical orders even if no shipping options are available" and "Disable initial shipping and tax estimates" are checked. We ask that you confirm that each product you sell -- digital only? -- has a digital downloadable file assigned to it. If CubeCart considers all products in the shopping basket as digital, no shipping is considered.

  34. Two ways: FTP the folder that was extracted from the ZIP file to CubeCart's /modules/gateways/ folder, or obtain the lightning bolt token and enter it in CubeCart's admin, Manage Extensions page. It will automagically appear in the Extensions list.

  35. Agreed - failed upgrades have been very common in the past when done via the built in upgrade option and often result in a mix of files from different versions - this will cause this type of problem. It has been covered in quite a few threads on here before and a manual upgrade would definitely solve it. Ian

  37. hello, sorry if I'm not in the right section, but I can not write in the plugin discussion section about the plugin store collection, here is an improvement that would be interesting to add. when the customer decides to make an on-site pick-up, a schedule should be proposed so that the picker chooses a date on which he will pick up his goods Thank you

  38. I'd chose CloudLinux with cPanel. Or CentOS with cPanel to save cash. @bsmither would say Windows. Either is ok really but CubeCart is more geared to Linux and I hate Windows personally.

  41. (I do not have a copy of GalaxyX, but) The Smarty code in probably all skins will be nearly the same. So, let's look at Foundation. content.category.php <h2>{$category.cat_name}</h2> {if isset($category.image)} <div class="row"> <div class="small-12 columns"><img src="{$category.image}" alt="{$category.cat_name}" class="marg-bottom"></div> </div> {/if} {if !empty($category.cat_desc)} <div class="row"> <div class="small-12 columns">{$category.cat_desc}</div> </div> {/if} {if isset($SUBCATS) && $SUBCATS} There is the category name, followed by a test for the presence of the category image. If there is an image (regardless of size), then show include the HTML to show it. Otherwise, do not include this HTML to show the image. This is followed by a similar test for the presence of the category's descriptive text. Then followed by a similar test to show the subcats. To absolutely not show the category image regardless whether there is one or not: From: {if isset($category.image)} To: {if false && isset($category.image)} Since a template has been modified, be sure to have CubeCart clear its internal cache.

  42. OK, I have taken the above two points out of your OP. 1) You can combine WordPress with CubeCart but they are not integrated as such. You can develop a WP theme to match your CubeCart skin so tha it looks like an integrated site. We have developed custom WP themes based on existing or custom built CubeCart skins and to use them, you have a choice of : (a) CubeCart at the top level with WP installed in a sub-directory (say for example /blog) and a link to that from the CubeCart menu. This is most often used where you want to have an active blog or other manageable content. (b) WP at the top level with CubeCart in a sub-directory such as /shop and this is less commonly used but useful if the main purpose of the site is to provide a content driven site that also sells things 2) That could be accomplished using CubeCart and simply needs a custom skin. The concept of having everything full width is a good one and much more modern and is something we started to do with our Retail Therapy skin (which currently just has a full width slideshow section) and the next release will have be full width by default with the current layout as an "old style" sub-theme. However, most of that example site could be done now with that skin plus two of our plugins (Multiple Homepage Documents and Manage Site Document Location) Ian

  43. Is this something you want to add above all gateway choices, or each one separately? For above all try this in content.checkout.php: <ul class="no-bullet center" id="gateway_error"> <h3>Above All</h3> {foreach from=$GATEWAYS item=gateway} If it's something separate you want, it would have to be in the plugin code somewhere.

  45. You had displayed your renamed admin folder. Since it was an image I didn't have any way to protect you other than to delete the image. For security precaution - it would be best if you renamed your admin_XXX folder within includes/global.inc.php - and then renamed your admin_xxx folder to match. You will have to change permission in order to be able to edit the global includes file. For some reason this forum software only lets Moderators add the Resolved.

  46. Hi Niall I have updated the Microdata plugin so two versions are available (for PHP 5.6 and above and another for PHP 5.5 and below) but unfortunately due to some caching issues with the Marketplace (which I have reported to Al), these are not showing. If you would like to register as a client at our site and open a ticket, I can let you have the correct version that way Ian

  47. There are file difference software solutions that allow you to compare two versions and see what needs changing to merge your edits from stock from the old version to the new upgraded version. I use BeyondCompare, but there are many others. You can see exactly what CC changed in your old version and add that edit to 6.1.5. (Al stated today that 6.1.6 would be released after the Bank Holiday - not sure if that's today or what).
