    Hi Brian,

    There are a few points to mention:

    The integrity of the package is reduced if the package is not full. 

    I sell more wine if the package is full

    I dont have to ask the customer to increase or decrease their order.

    So 1,3,6,12, or multiples thereof is good.

    I had a look in AIOS  index.inc.php line 51, some code using range_items may be useful?

    Line 51   $module->_settings['range_items'] = 0;

    Any further ideas?



  2. That would be very nice, however I don't know how to write this into code. I have placed wording on the front page and in the conditions, but that does not stop people ordering 4, 5,7 or 8,9,10, 11 bottles. Any suggestions would be welcome.

  3. Hi , yes I am using the All in One Shipping AIOS module. I was using Aust Post and By Price, but just AIOS from last week. I can give my customers a better price than AusPost. 

    I did try to use shipping by category for one particular item, but the AIOS was not compatible.


    Do you have a suggestion regarding AIOS?

  4. Hi Developers,

    I send organic wine all over the world and across Australia by various freight companies.

    The standard packing sizes are 1,3,6,12,24,36 .... bottles.

    I would like to have some code to allow customers to be guided to fill their packaging to the correct number of bottles.

    At the moment I have to email customers asking them if they want a bottle or two more to fill the carton at no extra charge in postage.

    I look forward to hearing if this is possible.




  5. I upgraded from 5.2.5 to 6.04 last night and I have to say it was the easiest upgrade I have ever done.  I was scared it would take me days.

    Only took 15 minutes, I could not believe it.

    I used the auto feature on the admin page. 

    Congratulations to Alan and CC. :)

  6. More on sitemaps.

    I generated a sitemap.html last week using www.xml-sitemaps.com/ and found the word " Uitverkoop" in the title.  ie


    <tr><td class="lpage"><a href="http://www.harrisorganicwine.com.au/shop/index.php?_a=saleitems" title=" Uitverkoop - Organic Wine - Swan Valley">Uitverkoop - Organic Wine - Swan Valley</a></td></tr>


    I assume this is inserted by cubecart, not the sitemap generator.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?



  7. Brian, I think I have solved the issue.

    The issue was: there was initially no h1 tags for the products. Then I changed all the content skin files ie content.certificates.php (as well as all other content.* files - at least in the Kurouto skin) and have the <h2> tag changed to <h1>.

    However in the content.product.php file there was several h2 and h1 tags. 

    Now I have changed the initial <h2>{$PRODUCT.name}</h2> from to <h1>{$PRODUCT.name}</h1> and all the other tags from h1 to h2.

    Now I am happy and the SEO should be too.

    No need to change css or the database tables.


  8. Ok, have found the files:




    and I can find h1 on line 180 of common.css

    #announcement > h1 {

    margin-bottom: 15px;
    Do I change that to h2?
    regarding CubeCart Gift Certs SEO phrases? All entered in #8 and #10.
  9. Hi Brian,

    regarding #4.  Seeing as though you have provided the code to provide meta data ... see '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>


    Now, I have changed the skin file content.certificates.php (as well as all other content.* files - at least in the Kurouto skin) and have the <h2> tag changed to <h1>.


    Now to the next part:

    (and update the CSS for h2 to include h1). Where is the CSS file please?

    And the database table, CubeCart_coupons, can have columns added similar to the Inventory table for SEO phrases. Where is this and how to change please?

    best regards


  10. Regarding Registration, Could go under Customers or Customers/Customer List or under Settings. I prefer under Customers.
    File Manager

    All good so far. :)

  11. Thanks Brian, yes I was replacing, but commenting out the old cose, that caught me out. I removed the comments and its working now. :)


    Regarding post #9,  


    The tricky thing about Searches is that CubeCart has no admin panel that deals with aspects of the Search procedure. CubeCart uses two search patterns: a "relevance" mode (lousy results on an inventory of minimal uniqueness) and a "matching" mode.


    Regardless of what mode CubeCart eventually uses to get search results, the results are treated and displayed just like a category. So, using the same technique for Sale Items, we can use for Search results. Except for the admin problem.


    On what admin page would we put the form fields for the meta_data you want to use for searches?


    Its not a question I can answer- some one at cubecart who knows the architecture would be a good start, maybe Al!

  12. Hi Brian,

    I have been following along and have now got the sales area  to work,

    however the gift certificate is blank while I am in admin and I cant use the shopping cart, all blank . (http://www.harrisorganicwine.com.au/shop/)


    Possibility is due to #8.

    "In the file /admin/sources/settings.giftcertificates.inc.php, edit near line 43:"

    I have commented out the line 15 and line 16; (see below) and added your lines. There is no code like this on line 43.


      <!--$GLOBALS['main']->addTabControl($lang['catalogue']['gift_certificates'], 'Certificates');-->
     <!--$GLOBALS['gui']->addBreadcrumb($lang['catalogue']['gift_certificates'], $_GET);-->
    Any suggestions?
  13. Hi Lyn,

    I am no expert on cubecart, but it seems to me these pages were added when SEO was not a priority. Having said that I hope that in future versions these attributes are available.

    There is a proprietary product available, however I do not know if this has a fix for these pages.

    I hope others who have more in depth knowledge provide you with some clarity on this.



  14. Brian, yes that is exactly what the customer requires. In this case they thought the gift certificate was going to be sent to them in the UK, not Australia.


    the GC's recipient's name and the purchaser's personal message and the receipients email address would confirm this..

  15. Hello,

    I received the first Gift Certificate order from a UK customer on my graded 5.2.5.


    The customer is confused as the receipt they obtain has their postal address as the BILLING and SHIPPING address.

    There is no mention of the GC addressee's email, their name or message as entered on the front page of the gift certificate.


    Is there some code I can enter to give a confirmation receipt to the customer to avoid this confusion? or has this been fixed in the latest version 5.2.10?



  16. Thanks Brain,

    yes I think I can do that, however it does not answer what can be done with no discrete title and no discrete meta description. Are these additional pieces of code that can be added?

  17. Good evening Brian et al,

    On the subject of Gift Certificates and SEO.

    Traffic Travis shows there are issues with the gift cert. seo (and many other urls) ie there is no H1 tag, no discrete title and no discrete meta description. The description seems to be generic.


    What solutions are there? If the only solution is a proprietary SEO package, are there any recommendation to a brand/name?
