  1. I read through that whole discussion and understood very little of it. So I take it this is not a bug, but just my lack of understanding. I have it showing what I want now. -6 UTC and America/Chicago gives me accurate time/date in Admin for when a product is updated. And it gives me accurate time/date on the Timestamp edit you made for my storefront homepage to show when a product was listed and another piece of code that shows our total product listings per today's date. Thanks as always. I appreciate your efforts to teach.
  2. I normally use the Timezone setting to Ameria/Chicago in the Store Settings Advanced tab. But I noticed the time was wrong on our website (our server is in Europe). So I set the UTC Offset to -6 and now the store time is right. Is this a bug in CC 6.2.6 that the America/Chicago setting was not sufficient to show the correct store time? Or just a misunderstanding on my part that the UTC Offset also needed to be set....
  3. Thanks! I'm not sure how long it will be before Google will fix it. Will wait and see.
  4. I was testing a post on Goggle my Business and discovered our store description on Google defaults not to my description, but to the wording of the cookie disclaimer! How can I fix this?
  5. I have this in my element.meta.php file. (I use the large image in my skin code.) <meta property="og:image:width" content="800" /> <link rel="image_src" href="{$PRODUCT.large}"/> <meta property="og:image:url" content="{$PRODUCT.large}"/> <meta property="og:url" content="{$VAL_SELF}"/> <meta property="og:type" content="product"/> <meta property="og:title" content="{$PRODUCT.name}"/> <meta property="fb:admins" content="xxxxxx"/> <meta property="og:site_name" content="{$CONFIG.store_name}"/> <meta property="og:description" content="{if isset($META_DESCRIPTION)}{$META_DESCRIPTION}{/if}">
  6. You will need to take mobility issues into account if you get your links too close to each other.
  7. It's in the Common group. When I can't find which group to look in, I open the definitions.xml file and search for the term. If you scroll up from where it is, you can see which group it is in. Then you can fix it via Language.
  8. Good - this person is very upset with me LOL - I refunded payment, and they, in broken English and Korean signature, complained.
  9. Based on the whole layout of the information, I assumed a recent unpaid order was not legitimate and cancelled it. I then disabled the customer, but did not delete it. Today, the same person ordered and paid with PayPal for what appears to be a legitimate order. I was surprised - I thought un-checking the Status entry on the Customers list would keep the customer from being able to login. They did change the delivery address for the order to a USA address. But the default delivery address is still to a country we do not do business with. We have refused orders from re-shippers before trying to send toys to Korea. South Korean businesses have a reputation for buying a toy, copying it, and selling in online stores as the genuine article. Our post master advised against sending toys to them. Should the unchecked customer have been able to login again or is this a bug?
  10. I added it to element.js_head.php and it works.
  11. Google made extensive changes around then.
  12. Take a look at my use of Ask about a Product here: https://dirtybutter.com/plushcatalog/dandee-collectors-choice-white-lamb-pink-jesus-loves-me.html
  13. I stand corrected - changes in Github look more like 6.2.3. Wonder why I just now have an issue??? I remembered a discussion of adding some kind of clarifying text to make it clear which sales tax was being used - thought it was in this one. My stock install does not have 2 Alabamas. One test site does have 2 Alabama entries with different id's in the tables, and the other has only one Alabama, as expected. I can't imagine how this could have happened.
  14. I know there were changes to code involving Sales Tax in this upgrade. We very rarely have sales that require Sales Tax, but we had one since upgrading. Sales Tax was not charged. Can someone verify that your 6.2.6 is correctly figuring and using appropriate Sales Tax? I've just noticed I have TWO Alabama zones in the Countries & Zones table in my Admin. I have no idea how that happened.
  15. Each refresh of the Admin Error Log creates this entry again - on stock test store as well as my own edited stores. [<strong>Notice</strong>] XXX/sources/settings.errorlog.inc.php:69 - Undefined variable: smarty_data This may have been happening for some time, but I'm more conscious of error logs when testing an upgrade.
  16. I renamed seo_meta_keywords in the inventory table to search_keywords, because the latest commit does not have meta keywords any more. Then I had to make appropriate changes in various code so search_keywords would be the source for search results. It is working as it should. But all the testing it took to get it working revealed these errors in my keyword consistency that I would like to rectify. Some ARE coded with &#39; and most are not. Some have upper case Carters, etc., and others have lower case carters, etc. These were added gradually over the course of about 10 years, so it's no wonder there's a lack of total consistency. So all apostrophe search_keyword entries should be &#39; ??? Does case matter?
  17. Yes you can. Be sure you change both the html and the plain text version. If you have translations in use they may need to be edited as well.
  18. I am trying to find instances where certain keywords are missing in my custom table of Search terms for each product. For instance, I normally add Carter's,Carters,Carter to the keywords of any item of that brand. And I include puppy,puppies,dog,dogs in any search "index" of that animal. While doing some testing I realize I have accidentally failed to include the apostrophe version of Carter's on some items. And not all my dogs can be found with a search for puppy. I need a query of the database that would help me find the items that have XXX in the search terms, but do NOT currently have YYY. It would be great if that query would also provide an automatic way to add the missing YYY to the current list of keywords, with the appropriate comma.
  19. It's SemperFi's AskAbout a Product plugin that makes it possible to let people Make an Offer if you choose that to be available. BUT that's all it does. It just provides a good way to identify exactly what they are asking about. Nothing automatic about the offer acceptance, counter offer, or rejection at all. And there seems to be a support issue on SemperFi's plugins which may not have been resolved - hope I'm wrong about that.
  20. Since I may be the only one using the keywords this way, I will make an effort to follow your directions: "It isn't a big job to create a new database column equivalent to the keywords field, add that to the admin product source and change the custom search code to use the new field instead of the meta keywords. " We'll see how it works out.
  21. I use the keywords for custom search terms. It might be easy for Havenswift to "easily reworked", but certainly not for me. If this is done, I would have to pay @havenswift-hosting to copy my meta data to a new database record and create the CC code to utilize it. Surely I'm not the only one who uses the keywords as a place to store alternative search terms. Will the customer search for bunny or rabbit? Will they type DanDee or Dan Dee? What if they use Carter's or Carter or Carters. All brand name variations and typical misspellings should lead to the correct search results. I never used the merged global SEO choice, but I really depend on the keywords for search.
  22. I would agree with that completely, Ian. But our plushmemories "blog" became SO successful that I could no longer manage it by myself. I moved it to Facebook, where I currently have 5 Admins and 6,100 members - growing every day. Even though the plushmemories website has had NO changes at all for almost 3 years now, it still gets a large number of visits a month. The archive of information it contains about vintage toys is invaluable. I'm just trying to figure out a way to leverage that plushmemories traffic to help with our store. :) I do appreciate your advice :)
  23. Thanks for the reassurance. At this point what I really need is a crystal ball to see if the move would improve our store traffic any or not. Store name would change as well, although that is no biggie with CC - hard to say if that's a biggie with sales or not. Still weighing it as a business decision, but at least the move itself is not on the Con side now. The biggest Plus, in my mind, is that the plushmemories domain receives way more hits than the dirtybutter domain does, even though it is an archive available to the public of plush information.
  24. My toy store is currently at dirtybutter.com/plushcatalog. I'm considering moving the store to plushmemories.com/plushcatalog. Https://plushmemories.com is a WP site. I assume I would need to use a 301 to redirect traffic to the new site. The store has been open a long time, so there are probably lots of links to the current url. How much trouble with the Wordpress situation will it be to move the store? @havenswift-hosting your input here would be appreciated when you have time - NO hurry - 12AM where you are
