  1. It was actually a real payment - sorry for the false alarm.
  2. Hearing all this worries me. Have I purchased the best eCommerce software, when there appear to be so few developers out there working on plugins? All us end users want is a shopping cart that works "out of the box", and if it needs anything extra, then a plugin is what we would prefer. Most of us are not coders, just non-technical people trying to run a small business. Surely the CC authors need to be doing more to develop a more dedicated user base? I would suggest the developers make it easier to contact them to request hooks etc as this would no doubt help matters immensely. Perhaps we need a developers area/"request hook form" on the site/forum so Al can take these things on board for future updates? There are numerous eCommerce software solutions out there (I'm sure we've all tried a few already) and we no doubt prefer Cubecart and want it to improve and grow its userbase. For that we need more plugins and ease of use
  3. I enquired about signing up to become a Cubecart affiliate a few months ago and heard nothing. However, I've just received an email detailing a payout to Paypal - but I do not have a Paypal account. How do I access my CC affiliate info?
  4. Agreed - Wordpress is amazing, I'm using it as a front end on a new CC site. Plugins are easily installed and updated etc. No fuss at all. Is it simply a matter of CC5 coders not understanding the plugin/hooks system?
  5. Can a plugin be written that will do this? I though the whole point of Cubecart 5 being re-written was so plugins (rather than mods) could be installed, which would be much easier for us non-techy types who just want a website that works with minimum hassle. I now look after 4 sites running Cubecart 5 and with each CC update comes a lot of hassle with each CC update due to hard coded mods.
  6. Sometimes the site takes you to the home page, sometimes the login page.
  7. 1. Yes, homepage is landing page 2. Prices are not hidden 3. Disallow the 'ghost' customer to checkout? = Yes
  8. A pity. Plugins only for me from now on. One you have half a dozen mods installed it all becomes too much hard work.
  9. Wow that sounds perfect - Is it a plugin? I'm avoiding mods from now on. Too much of a headache.
  10. We've just done our first newsletter, but is there a way of finding out who the newsletter went out to? We have over 5,000 customers in our database and we've had no feedback to far. It seems that when we imported all our customers from an older site the "subscribe to mailing list" setting defaulted to no. Is there a simple way to change this to yes?
  11. Did you manage to figure a fix out for this? We need to be able to sell fabric in half metre increments.
  12. I need to make some changes to the Vector theme (it's too light for a client/friend of mine). Is there a wrong and a right way of doing this? I'd like to keep the original as is, so do I simply duplicate one of the style folders and make changes to that? Or do I somehow need to make a "child" theme and make changes to that instead? Most of the changes are simply colour changes via css (for now) but there may be other changes and mods as I progress with the store build. IO'd really appreciate your help on this as I don't want to mess things up.
  13. Some items won't be re-stocked. These are the items we'd like to somehow highlight as "Last Chance" offers.
  14. Is it possible to have the site automatically promote these as limited availability items and thus highlight them to customers before they're sold out?
  15. I have had to remove al the categories and start again, but now they begin at 25. Is there a way to re-set them back to begin again at "1"?
  16. Should I install this upgrade or wait for a bug fixed version?
  17. Before starting to create a database and import everything from scratch, I've managed to obtain an export of the original eCommerce site, which was running on a non-supported cms. Is it possible to import this data into the Cubecart database? It would save us a lot of time if it is possible.
  18. Possibly... I'm building a new eCommerce site for a friend's fabric company. I have the old .sql file, but it's an export from a CMS called Tovuti that is no longer supported. I've suggested that it would probably be easier to create a new spread sheet based on all the current fabric in stock and to work with that instead. So that was my reason for asking about sub categories - it would save time in setting the site up. I'm also aware that we'll need a mod for fabric by length, rather than quantity. How easy would this be to do? I asked about this here a while ago. I'll also be adding WP as a front end.
  19. OK, so main category only. That's a pain. :-(
  20. Which fields can be imported? Can Category & sub-category IDs be imported?
  21. Do you need to include the numbers after your Facebook ID?
  22. The guy at AddThis just said: Does this mean CC is adding something incorrectly?
