  2. I have a few moderately successful Cubecart stores, I've been a customer for many years now, I think I started in version 2, I've flirted with other carts over the last decade, including a disastrous stint with Oscommerce but always seem to revert to the known. I've got an Opencart store on the go as well but I hate it and Magento is way too cumbersome (and I can't be bothered with all the phone calls of them trying to up-sell me), the rest (Shopify, Bigcommerce etc) are all on their systems, which I'm a bit too paranoid and or cheap to sign up to. I kinda don't know what your objective is, your reasoning is a bit flawed, I'm a business owner too so I get the caution, but I don’t understand how this is an issue here? For example, my latest store and new business venture I also had a ~£0 budget, there was a bunch of reasons why I didn't want to just spin up another cubecart. However, my final cost to launch was ~£150 there is no competitor cart you can dust off and run for 0 money and provide the same level of use. Your main gripe, the All in One shipping module, is free, there are a bunch of other free extensions that you need to install to have an operating cart (PayPal). I don't see how that's an issue, some people will only use Sage not Paypal or like me only ship to the UK for free postage, so if they don't need it, it' s not installed, software is lighter weight. Also the creator of All-in-one hasn't been around in a number of years, so the idea of giving the keys over to them, is impractical as well as a bit mad. You do highlight an interesting point though, there is almost zero reason that I can see that the All in one shipping module isn't standard at this point. It was always a bit of a glaring hole in the software that has existed since at least version 3. I personally have always needed that mod, but I assumed they never baked it into the software because didn't want to step on the toes of a 3rd party extension creator (who even at the time where few and far between)? There are some minor issues that I have with cubecart, that have been around for years that seem to just go on “unfixed”; The search function is just bad The look of the default skin is a bit dated The management of orders in bulk is non-existent (Bsmither custom made me an export or I'd be screwed) The 3rd party marketplace fairly small and it’s all on the back of like 3 guys and seems to be getting smaller over time. There seems like Quality of life upgrades that could be made that aren't because, maybe I'm the only one seeking them (which I admit could be a possibility), there isn't the development time for them or that they are waiting for the 3rd party extension to be made if the demand is high enough from a community that hasn't really existed or recovered from the switch from opensource to paid and back again *(In my opinion)*. The main strength of Cubecart is that it's very modular and it's easily customisable, the main detraction seems to be I'm not skilled enough nor have the time to do it myself and to hire someone to do it seems cost prohibitive. For Example, There are 7 paid for themes on the marketplace right now, some of them haven't been maintained in years and look straight out of the 90's, one's demo page links to a Shopify site, one is an easier way to customise the Foundation skin, which is neat but not what I’m looking for. I can go chose from 600 OpenCart themes and sure most of those are themeforest hatchet jobs straight from coding hell but hey they look pretty. So I thought to myself, “Hey, you pay money for a theme anyway, what could be the cost of just hiring some guy to build exactly what you want” now admittedly I also wanted to hire locally so mileage my vary, so I emailed 8 web designers. Two actually responded, both wanted to migrate to Magento to install some random stock skin for a few thousand. Gave up with the self promise that in 2020 I'll finally make a go at that skin I started in 2018 :D. So in closing, my own gripes though detailed and long outstanding are fairly minor in the face of the utility, low cost and ease of use that Cubecart provides. I think you are right to have your complaints, I kinda half share them but I don't agree that cost to launch is a good argument to base it on.
  3. I can't figure out what's wrong with content.gateway.php template but it's not auto transferring.
  4. Probably not, just trying to eliminate the obvious, from the error report your SSL is fine and stuff, it's just IPN postback In the extension settings near the bottom there is IPN URL (Optional): Is that filled in wrong ? Or more importantly does it match what is written in your Paypal profile. Profile > Profile and Settings> My Selling Preferences > Website preferences
  5. 1.0.7 update seems to stop the ability to update Cubecart with payment transaction data.
  6. When the customer returns to your shop from paypal it needs to be a https address as of June (I honestly thought it was always the case).
  7. It's stretching them to fit the space as the height is fixed, you'd be better off making the width fill the space.
  8. my bad it's actually in cubecart.helpers.css, i took chrome's word for it.
  9. If you make the change I listed, you can add as many as you like, works fine for me.
  10. It's not a bug, it's designed that way. I guess the idea is that mobile users would find it easier to edit quantity at the checkout, most larger retailers use this method (eg.Amazon), I'm not a super big fan of the feature, but it is efficient. You can modify the skin to make it show, it kinda displays bad though. in Foundation/templates/element.product.call_to_action.php Line35 <div class="medium-2 columns show-for-medium-up"> <input type="text" name="quantity" value="1" maxlength="6" class="quantity required text-center"> <input type="hidden" name="add" value="{$PRODUCT.product_id}"> remove "show-for-medium-up".

    Isn't paypal's big security review this month? Is your SSL cert needing renewed recently?
  12. In Foundation.css .thickpad-top { padding-top: 1.25em; } make it 0em or padding: 0; I'm not sure if it's used in other pages though, so maybe be careful with that, I haven't really come across it in my rebuild yet, but then again, I am on part 5 of 9billion.
  13. Yeah, I've started removing all the style elements from my foundation folder, just seems like it'll take forever just do it, but then again, I'll have to add it all back in later.
  14. I'm trying to build a bootstrap skin from scratch cause I'm a idiot and don't know what I've let myself in for. It'd be easier for me just to go from a barest minimum of pages, but it seems cube cart needs a set amount of files to even display as skin, there any no styling version of a skin folder?
  15. I'm sure it's possible, I just nuked my foundation skin on my test site so I'll have to get back to you on that. Edit: Nah, the foundation skin of cubecart is based on Foundation 4, sticky elements seem to be a 5 onwards thing. I tried to just "upgrade" to 6 but it seems they changed how everything works at some start cause that causes some massive error. Seems like it would require alot of work to get foundation 6 to work, I'm not sure why though as the grid system isn't greatly changed at any rate. ... even later.... Yeah, I got it to stop throwing all the errors at me, will require quite a bit of reworking as they's changed how it all works. I would consider it, but I decided for bootstrap instead as it vaguely makes more sense to me.
  16. I lied, I figured it out. In /foundation/templates/main.php <div class="row"> <div class="small-12 columns small-collapse"> {include file='templates/box.navigation.php'} <div class="hide" id="val_lang_back">{$LANG.common.back}</div> </div> </div> Make it <div class="row row-mod"> <div class="small-12 columns small-collapse"> {include file='templates/box.navigation.php'} <div class="hide" id="val_lang_back">{$LANG.common.back}</div> </div> </div> then go to foundation/css/foundation.css and add .row-mod { max-width: none !important; }
  17. It's in a container, I think you'd have to make the whole site full width.
  18. There's nothing really in the cubecart side that actually verifies anything afaik, so it'd have to be a google issue, I'd check that the domain is correct on your key.
  19. If you submit the items to google merchant and you haven't updated your feed, you'll get item disapprovals which take a few days to clear when the item is In stock again. It's really up to your self, if it's long term out of stock, you can hide it then update your feed, to prevent disapproval
  20. I'm not sure what you need, there only the two options at default grid and list, grid is pretty close to a table.
  21. the same thing would happen if they refreshed the page at certain segments of the checkout process, it creates multiple unpaid orders. It's kind of the way the process is designed, I'm not sure there is a quick fix for it.
  22. In /foundation/templates/content.category.php find the "<dd" <dd class="active"><a href="#" class="grid_view"><i class="fa fa-th-large"></i></a></dd> <dd ><a href="#" class="list_view"><i class="fa fa-th-list"></i></a></dd> change the, class="active" to whichever one you want, in this case grid view, making sure to remove it from list view. Then in the same file, look for product_list_view and product_grid_view and add hide to the one you don't want to use, again making sure to remove hide from the one we want to show, if we follow the example shown above, it'll look like this. <div class="row product_list_view hide " > ... ... ... ... .. . . . <div class="product_grid_view">
  23. a quick glance at those threads indicate it's in the works for a future version (before June?)
  24. Great Plugin, now I don't have 700 odd microdata warnings in Google merchant, upsetting me all the time.
  25. Most of the skins available on the marketplace use Foundation as a base, so I imagine they all use a similar process, my own (a butchered version of clean skin) certainly does. I'm sure it's possible to do, just would require skin modification.
