  1. I must admit to being rather concerned about the number of problems that are reported.

    I was looking at manually upgrading v6.1.1 to 6.1.7 but do not want to risk losing all.
    I see that my admin folder has the new .xxxxxx suffix.
    Is it possible to do a new 6.1.7 install and tie this in to my existing database without losing the data?



  2. Noodleman & ian,

    Thank you both for your advice.

    I will go through each item suggested (woorank and google) to see if things improve.

    Thanks again.


  3. Hi All,

    I have recently activated an SSL certificate for my site and changed Dashboard>settings>enablessl :  to yes.

    I hope it is a coincidence but my online sales have since bombed. Is there something I should check?



  4. Hi All,

    Would apreciate some advice.

    I use Galaxy skin but code is the same in Foundation skin.

    in: templates - content.checkout.confirm line 206 - contains  <input type="checkbox" name="register" id="show-reg" value="1" {$REGISTER_CHECKED}>

    This adds a checkbox option "I would like to create an account." (checked by default.) to the checkout page for unregistered users.

    Assuming this does not break something else I would like this checkbox to be unchecked by default.

    If I delete {$REGISTER_CHECKED} this does the trick but I am not sure if this is acceptable 'codewise' or may cause other problems?




  5. HI All,

    I have suddenly started to get a lot of spam product reviews. I have new recaptcha activated and this works fine on the contact form but does not appear at all on the product review page. CC6.08 Galaxy skin (but still the same with foundation skin)

    Any advice would be appreciated.


  6. Further update.

    After much fiddling with the settings things now seem to be working. Phew!

    My only concern at the moment is that 'pending' is not automatically updated to 'processing' when payment is authorised. (I am sure this happened in CC4)



  7. Disaster has struck.

    Have cocked up CC6 big time

    Admin still works fine but no web pages are visible.

    I installed a documents mod (have done this sort of thing loads of times) but suddenly lost web pages.

    Can I re-install CC6 with out affecting database entries or any of my uploaded images/product details? or should I first try to overwrite the files that were modded.




  8. Update.

    Checkout info seems to reach Barclays OK.

    When the transaction is processed by Barclays  the return from them goes to the checkout page again, which automatically submits the details again. Barclays then register an error because the same transaction number is submitted twice. The basket does not clear  and the order status stays at pending whether the transaction is declined or accepted.

    I wonder about these module settings:

    Back Button redirection:    http://www.myurl.co.uk/index.php?_a=gateway

    Data and origin verification URL:      http://www.myurl.co.uk/index.php?_a=gateway

    Direct HTTP server-to-server request URL (Both):        http://www.myurl.co.uk/index.php?_g=rm&type=gateway&cmd=call&module=BarclayCard


    Has anyone else got a working arrangement that uses the new Barclays back office integration?

    Any help would be much appreciated.


  9. Hi bsmithers,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yes, I am using the CC6 Barclays module together with the new epdq set up. (I only mentioned CC4 because that setup worked)

    Return URLs as suggested by module seem strange and epdq will not return to website except sometimes I have a flash view of the shopping cart "submit" page and then back to epdq. No entries in Admin>error log.

    Additional info:

    Clean CC6 install and new database. Skin = Galaxyx




  10. Help would be appreciated.
    I am having problems with epdq on CC6. Previously worked fine on CC4.
    Whether payment is accepted or cancelled epdq will not return properly back to cubecart but just hangs with error message. The gateway page flashes on screen and imediately returns to epdq payment page (automatically re submits basket contents?) Also basket not emptied nor is order status updated.

    Apologies if posted twice.


  11. Hi All,

    Is it possible to reset or remove the products shown in the 'Customers who bought this' box.

    I have set the number shown to '0' in Admin>general settings but the products are still visible.

    (Have cleared cache and browser cache)

    Any help would be appreciated.



    Problem solved. Just deleted the offending order

  12. Using a pre-named style type for a tag (<li type="bullet">) class parameter doesn't work like that. You would need to redefine the style CSS element.

    In the file \skins\Classic\styleSheets\layout.css find:

    .ul-nav, .li-nav {

    display: block;

    list-style: none;


    and change to:

    list-style-type: square;

    Thanks for your suggestion, which does add a square bullet, but it is not on the same line as the text.

    I will have to play around a bit more.

    What does puzzle me is why a square bullet list is visible in the view basket > Useful Links box using <li class="bullet">

    yet this does not work when applied to the homepage>categories box.


  13. Hi All,

    I would be grateful for any help on this one.

    In the Classic skin the top left hand box is 'Categories'

    I am trying to get this to display the contents as a bulleted list (square bullets) rather like the cart navi box

    I have changed 'li class ="li-nav"' to "li class=bullet" but this makes no difference.


    Many Thanks


  14. Hi All,

    Q.1 I have cc3 up and running and want to trial cc4.

    I have installed cc4 into a different directory and want to use the same database that is used for cc3.

    I have added a prefix (install section 4) and would expect the cc4 tables to be added to the existing database.

    Unfortunately I get: 1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax.....DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci;

    I notice that cc3 >language>en>config.inc.php has the line "$charsetIso = "iso-8859-1";" which co-incides with the database language.

    While cc4>language>en>config.php has the line "$charsetIso = "UTF-8";".

    It does not seem possible to change the language in my database (limited options in phpadmin) and I am reluctant to make changes which may stop the correct working of my cc3 store.

    My host wants another £8 p.m. to add databases.

    Q.2 I have configured my cc4 install to run with zend.

    Is this OK or should I enable Ioncube as well?

    Any suggestions gratefully received.



  15. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    I have installed a copy of CC4 on a localhost (xampp)

    After much trawling through these forums the install was eventually successful .

    I got to install screen 5 where you are given the choice of going to admin or store home and the database has updated etc.

    I have deleted the setup folder.

    If I try to open the store or admin I just get a blank browser page.

    I have copied the global.inc.php file over as suggested in an earlier thread but this didn't work for me.

    I have installed CC3 in a similar way and this works fine.

    (although I did originally have a lot of 'deprecated' errors but a quick mod from this forum hid them.
