    The PHP setting 'max_input_vars' can be easily set by the user in either of two places: the .htaccess file, or a special .user.php file.

    I do not know if any web server other than Apache will honor a PHP directive in the .htaccess file, but to do this:

    Using a programmer's text editor, add the following statement at the end of the file:

     php_value max_input_vars 25000 

    If your hosting provider offers you a control panel to manage your site, there will be a File Manager, and within that tool will be a means to edit files.

    To see if the directive was honored by the web server and thus instructed PHP to use this value, in admin, PHP Info (bottom of the Nav panel), scroll to the Core table and note the value for 'max_input_vars'.

    Can it? Not all hosts allow these settings to be changed. Worth a go though.¬†ūü§ě

    A new Royal Mail integration would be great.  For what its worth the way i currently use Click and Drop is...

    • Run a sales report in cubecart for processing orders, then click export (saved to the watch folder for 'Click and Drop Desktop').
    • Sales report columns have been mapped (once, previously) so royal mail can read the spreadsheet.
    • Log into ClickandDrop website and all active orders are there, I then manually update weights etc (which if the better route for my scenario as i want to weigh, dictate box size etc after packing [i don't see the need for getting live prices from Royal Mail visible to the customer this can be pre-defined in your store shipping rules]). ZZ
    • Pay and print on ClickandDrop and then return to cubecart to manually change status to Complete.

    My route is a few steps, but has stopped me having to manually copy and paste addresses/typos etc.

    Would be great if an API could stop me manually running a sales report and could change the status in cubecart automatically. 

    It's about 90% built.

  3. The Click & Drop API allows you to upload orders (placed already) to get shipping prices and print labels in bulk. What it critically doesn't do as far as I can see is to allow your store to get real time quotes for available services based on your basket. On those grounds I can't see how this solution is of any interest to a typical CubeCart merchant. 

  4. We are pleased to announce the release of CubeCart 6.5.0 beta 1. This is a beta release and may not be suitable for production stores. If you are not interested in adding Elasticsearch to your store or if it is not available via your hosting provider we do not recommend installing or upgrading to this release of 6.5.0. 

    What's New?
    This release has just one new feature. Elasticsearch will improve and speed-up the search facility on the front end.

    How do I get Elasticsearch working?

    1. CubeCart will require Elasticsearch to be installed on your server. Please find instructions at the URL below:
    2. Once installed it can be enabled via the Advanced section of your Store Settings. 
    3. Finally, you'll need to index your current inventory. To do this visit the Elasticsearch tab in the Maintenance section of your store control panel. Once indexed it should maintain itself.

    Release Notes
    Regrettably this powerful new feature is unlikely to be available for merchants using typical shared generic web hosting. Please check with your hosting provider or server administrator.

    Many, many versions ago, I recall this being an issue.

    Lately, however, a problem that does occasionally happen is that the customer puts the last of an item in the cart (inventory is monitored), then at some point during checkout, CubeCart will verify the basket contents, see that there is zero stock remaining of that item, causing CubeCart to remove it from the basket. (Either this problem has been solved, or it is soon to be solved.)

    Please verify if the customer added the product to their basket while there was some of that product in stock. It may be tricky to figure that out. The easiest way to verify is to have a conversation with the customer.


    That shouldn't be an issue. It checks stock regularly during checkout. I believe it will check just before creating the order and reducing.

    There is a setting to allow out of stock purchases. I expect that's the issue.

    I DID still have the SemperFi Update extension active. That fixed it. THANKS AL!!

    Great I've seen this a few times. It was trying to check for updates from a server now offline.
