  1. Hi Brian et al. 

    I have changed my site over from http://... to https://www.harrisorganicwine.com.au

    I see there are a few parts to this.

    1. changing code in htaccess to the root domain

    2. reviewing htaccess to CC6 shop with START v4 SEO URL BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY .. cant see anything to change

    3. Turn on or OFF SSL in CC store settings - does not seem to make any difference whether on or off.

    4. Test the site by changing the URl, two options removing www and using http, without 's"

    All seems to work fine, until I found out old links to the site dont have either www or https in the url. Therefore when I make some changes to the root htaccess file a few things happen.

    This is only part of the file below:

    RewriteEngine on

    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off   # Using this one stops /404 errors and adds index.php?seo_path= to the URL.
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L]

    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80  # redirect for global SSL
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.harrisorganicwine.com.au/$1 [R=301,L]

    When I add RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off etc  it  stopped the site giving 404 errors and adds index.php?seo_path=  to the url when I test it by removing the s in https


    http://www.harrisorganicwine.com.au/shop/dry-whites/chilli-white.html  becomes


    and when I remove the www.


    https://harrisorganicwine.com.au/shop/dry-whites/chilli-white.html no change,

    however if I add a wildcard redirect through the hosting panel ie, from

    http://harrisorganicwine.com.au to http://www.harrisorganicwine.com.au all I get is a 404 error.

    Any thoughts how to fix these issues as I have little experience in htaccess code.



  2. Hi, The SEO on cubecart is not up to scratch. If you run "traffic Travis" it will tell you all the parts that are missing for the best SEO.  

    As Sailing123 mentions H1 and the Meta tag title are normally treated differently. 

    I would like to see the SEO tabs on all products, categories and other pages, such as gift certificates, login, register etc with tags for SEO. 

    Meta Title
    Custom SEO URL Path *
    Meta Keywords
    Meta Description etc
    With the ability to add H1 and H2 tags also.
    I would be pleased if this issue was raised with the cubecart team.
  3. With Brian's most valuable help the situation has been resolved.

    The answer to the solution is the following:

    The names of all the parts in the following files needs to be the same. If you want the new name to be "Carrier" then you will need to check or change for this.

    1: Go to the shipping module folder containing your new named AIO .shipping, ie Carrier

    2: Open shipping.class,php and check the name is not AIOS.

    about Line 29

    class Carrier{

    3. If it is; change it to your required name.

    4. Open the config.xml file, check the name is correct.

    ie <name><![CDATA[Carrier]]></name>

    With these changes the shipping costs should show up at the check out.



  4. In the newly named copy of the AIOS module, /skin/admin/index.tpl template, you may need to also edit the first <div id="???" class="tab_content"> to hold the corresponding name of this module's folder.

    Yes, found that and changed ALL_IN_ONE to newly named copy and now the general tab is doing what it should. :)

    I changed line 8 and line 55.

    However testing the shopping cart provides the same result, ie and error, the same as before.


  5. Hi,I have followed this thread and got as far as #6

    But the settings will not carry over to the new module.


    Here's what you can do if you have direct access to the database:

    1. Enable the new module. It may be called Shipping (or whatever). Do not worry about making any settings. Click Save. This is in CC6 in "manage plugins."

    2. Access your database and find the CubeCart_config table.  I found this in phpMyadmin

    3. Find the specific row that has in the 'name' column, "All_In_One_Shipping". Done

    4. Copy the contents in the 'array' column. Done

    5. Find the specific row that has in the 'name' column, "Shipping". Done

    6. Paste what was just copied above, replacing the current contents in the 'array' column. Done

    Then back to admin and check the pricing is showing in the new Shipping module, yes the pricing is there, however when I open it I get the information of the general tab, thats nornal, BUT, if I click on the general tab the page goes blank , ie the tabs stay but the general info page is not there.

    Next, go to shopping cart, add an item and check out. 

    Woops, no shipping pricing is presented. The error reads," The following errors were detected:  

    and the rest of the message is generated by me (not sure how, too long ago).

    In conclusion, the instructions from Brian are OK, but there seems to be something missing to finalize this.

    Any suggestions?

    regards Duncan.



    • Unfortunately there are no suitable shipping methods available for your order. This may be because the total number of items in your order does not fit our packaging or we cannot ship to your country. Please check the number of items such that there is 1,3,6,12,18,24...


    In CubeCart, bring the Shipping module up for editing. Verify that the zones and conditions appear correct.

  6. Hi Nial,

    Google may index all sorts of data from your sites pages. In this case the bottom screen myfancydress.ie is your home page ie index.php  and the other page in your shop (bottom screen) may be another page.

    If you press F12 on chrome, you will see all the meta description has been added together by google. 

    <meta name="description" content="My Fancy Dress is one of Ireland's largest online Fancy Dress Costume Shop.

    I would not worry about it. Try https://www.lipperhey.com  for SEO

  7. Hi Cyberart,

    thanks for your question.

    It took me some years to find the answer, and it was simple in the end.

    I used ALL in ONE shipping plugin. AIOS is a bit daunting to start with, but once you have the hang of it it is easy.

    Typically one would group bands of items together for a given price, ie 1-3 bottles $15 and 4-6 bottles= $20 postage.

    with AIOS you can just do this: 1 bottle $15, 3 bottles $20 6 bottles $20, and if a customer adds only 5 there is an error. then just change the language file to give the message you want.(see above)

    If you need help PM me.

  8. Hi Dodgebill,

    I like the theme you have chosen for your shop with the sliding header. Have a look at my home page. Mine is made in foundation 5.

    I am not a programmer, but I see that the code you are using is not foundation based, but you have grafted the cubecart foundation code into your html . 

    Would it be better to start afresh with a foundation orbit slider code, ala : http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/v/4.3.2/components/orbit.html

  9. Hi Brian,

     "CubeCart checks the cache"; Rings Alarm bells.

    Al at Cubecart changed the cache times last month when I had an issue with the shopping cart contents.

    Even though I cleared the cache today and restarted  my PC the drop down menu only appears now on a few products, so I cut and pasted the correct category into the text boxes. I then did an export of the catalogue via google base and found the text and the drop down catalogue was the same. 

    All good.

    Many thanks Brian. 

    I wonder if any one else sees this issue.? May be Dean at SynapseGraphics.
