  1. All text shown in CubeCart is held in the language files which are then databased - in Admin, look for language option and it will be a string within one of the offered sections. Finding which section a specific string is in, can sometimes be complicated. Some are relatively obvious depending on where the message is displayed but some are far from obvious and finding them either comes with experience, or manually searching the language definitions file. There is a github feature request for a search facility to be added https://github.com/cubecart/v6/issues/2671 which @Al Brookbanks is consi
  2. You will get hundreds and hundreds of undefined index notices - they can all be ignored
  3. The subscription provider handles it so no need for repeat orders but again this is a limited product range where each customer will only likely have one product each. It could be amended to work in a larger store though
  4. No, this site uses a custom bit of code within an iframe and a third party subscription provider. The integration could be expanded on and built into a plugin but there wasnt a requirement to do that in this case
  5. We have recently create a site that does this but they only deal with 3 products - see https://www.grandies.co.uk This approach currently wouldnt work very well with a much larger number of subscription products but there could be changes made to the way it works if you are interested Ian
  6. Switch to use authenticated SMTP rather than phpMail as emails have a much greater chance of deliverability. Always use an email from the domain hosting your store. After that, it is down to the IP reputation of the IP address your website is on and how good your hosing company is about dealing with issues and how often they let spammers send emails Ian
  7. Sorry, but this does not agree with what you are saying now. CubeCart works well on sites with tens of thousands of visitors a day and many hundreds of orders per day and with proper hosting setup could no doubt deal with more As I said, this will simply be down to a lack of knowledge or understanding of what information is where and how to do upgrades. This will come as you get more experience and can be helped by people on this forum This is a case in point - this is not a bug but rather the software is working as expected with your configuration - you will have the settin
  8. While CubeCart can be made to work on Windows / IIS, it was never designed for this environment and is certainly not officially supported. You would be much better off switching hosting package / supplier so you use a Linux based system utilizing Apache Ian
  9. @Al Brookbanks this might be interesting to add into core ?
  10. 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
  11. Hi Brian What version are you on ? Have you recently upgraded ? If so, did it work before ? When you say it doesnt work, are there any errors shown on screen, in the CubeCart system error log or in the PHP error_log file ? Ian
  12. Have you checked PHP error_log file for any errors - sounds like an ionCube version mismatch so do you have any plugins that only affect admin side and that are encoded (from Noodleman maybe?) Ian
  13. If you dont see it on the Features tab then you are either running an old version of CubeCart or if you think you are running the latest version, then have a failed / partial upgrade and are running a mixed version of files in your installation
  14. Simply enable it in the Store Settings. Language is configurable in the normal way through the language options
  15. CubeCart has an exit modal window which is configurable - your skin will need to support it and you will need to be running a recent version of CubeCart
  16. We will be releasing a new menu plugin for CubeCart in the near future - if anyone is interested, please get in contact
  17. I made those changes to your skin fo you straight away - you may need to remember them for future upgrades (to the skin) along with your other minor skin changes
  18. Go straight to PHP 7.4 as you are already using 6.4.X - BUT you then must ensure that memcached is an enabled module Would agree that you should do try a manual upgrade
  19. We also have a plugin similar to this https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/plugins/multiple-homepage-documents but which works on categories (it isnt in the extension marketplace) which if it works for you would mean no core file changes as all done by a true plugin
  20. There is absolutely no guarantee that any extension in the marketplace (skins or plugins) are updated or supported - there are a great number that had an initial release and the developer has disappeared. You always need to check the date it was last updated - it is possible for plugins to sometimes go many months (or longer) without needing an update but skins should really be updated with many CubeCart core updates, especially major version changes for example the recent 6.2.X to 6.4.X update I will contact you via PM regarding the other questions
  21. Take a look at @Noodleman plugin https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/plugins/dashboard-widgets-and-advanced-reports
  22. Foundation is free and is continuously updated for new CubeCart releases but it was never designed to be used as it is but rather as a starting point for development. Kurouto and minimaliser are just as old and unsupported While learning is always good and to be commended, unfortunately using old skins that arent supported and dont contain most updates from the last 2/3/4 years will cost you a lot more in the medium / long run and in addition most of these old skins, look well, OLD !
  23. That will be a massive number of files and changes. Simplest way is extract a 6.2.9 zip file to one directory, a 6.4.2 zip file to another directory and then do a diff file comparison between the two directories.
  24. @traylor23 you are very welcome ! One takeaway is that you might want to look into the frequency and accessibility of backups your hosting company is doing. Minimum has to be full off-server backup once per day but even that for busy transactional sites can lead to massive data loss. As an example, we do hourly Continuous Data Protection backups !
  25. The slideshow uses a system called bxslider and this needs to be included within the skin files fir it to work. E-tone is a very old and unsupported skin and really shouldn’t be used by anyone unless they are a very competent programmer willing to spend a lot of time upgrading and configuring it to work with the latest CubeCart version which IMHO is a complete waste of time and money. Choose a skin that is currently actively supported and developed such as ours or those from @NiteFox- for a little bit of initial outlay you will get a modern skin that works and is supported Ian
