  2. I don't think it is being used anywhere. Only reference I've found is in mican/templates/content.homepage.php <!--<a href="{$product.url}" title="{$product.name}" class="button_black">{$LANG.common.info}</a>--> which is commented out. The image isn't in any of the V5 downloads that I looked at either. If you're worried about it stick a rather large image in for images/common/button_black.png in the skin folder and that will flush it out if it is being used anywhere but doubt it is.
  3. skins/mican/styles/common.css .button_black { background: url(../images/common/button_black.png) no-repeat;
  4. Just had the same thing happend to our V6 store which we upgraded from V3 a couple of weeks ago. This use to happen frequently on V3 thought V6 would have sorted it. Don't know what has caused it but obviously a problem somewhere. Customer placed three seperate orders first two OK then third one all screwed up.
  5. I just dump the customers table into a spreadhseet and filter the no order customers out in there. Takes 2 minutes. Not very elegant but gets the job done. And we do have some success with it so well worth doing.
  6. I think it should be £25 inc VAT for a months support no contract. Option 1 middle column. Also as you have just upgraded you may come accross other issues in the next four weeks so you will be covered. Will be £25 well spent. Technical Support is online maybe have a chat with them.
  7. There are times when you need thing sorting in a hurry and this sounds like one of them suggest you get Al on the case by signing up for a monthly plan at https://www.cubecart.com/technical-support
  8. Not tried it but would this be what you are looking for http://www.worldoweb.co.uk/2012/display-your-wordpress-recent-posts-on-a-static-page
  9. Most goods exported to the States can be zero-rated for UK VAT purposes (that is, VAT does not need to be added), as long as documentary evidence of the export is kept. Any extra charges made for freight, shipping, postage or delivery are also zero-rated. As a general rule we only need to charge VAT to EU countries unless the purchaser can supply a valid VAT number. In which case you can get a mod from Noodleman to handle this. Interestingly the other day I found out that every Spanish company has to be registered and they are not allowed to trade with non VAT registered companies. It is also difficult to validate a Spanish VAT number on the VIES website.
  10. Thanks Al. I had never written any php before, Seen loads of it on here but felt a bit bad because I didn't understand any of it. So I bought a book! The first two were relatively easy but the syndicate one made me think. I aways remember someone asking once how to order days of the week. To which the reply was give them a number and order the numbers e.g. 1 - Monday, 2 - Tuesday so it's was basically sitting thinking how to structure the code to get it to do what I wanted. Probably really easy when you know what you're doing but it was a challenge for me. Still don't understand server side MySQL stuff so maybe time to buy another book.
  11. In an atempt to learn php I have been playing around with a little project to try and get me started. My first atempt is a lottery number lucky dip generator which you can see at http://the1.webuda.com/lotto/lotto.php I then decided to try and make the same generator for the euro millions lottery which you can see at http://the1.webuda.com/lotto/euro.php To maximise the chances of winning it is obviously important to make sure that you have all the numbers that pop out of the machine on the night so to do that Ive got a generator which would be ideal for a syndicate which you can see at http://the1.webuda.com/lotto/syndicate.php This will give you all the numbers but getting them all on the same line, well that really is down to luck!! Just a bit of fun feel free to use it if you wish. Any comments to improve it welcome.
  12. Are you using Google Webmaster Tools to keep track of your sitemap? If so it will give you a list of which pages are not being found.
  13. If you have a Cubecart generated sitemap and have a lot of out of stock products it could be google trying to index these which will give a 404 error. If this is the case try generating your sitemap at http://www.web-site-map.com/ as this will only map in stock products.
  14. No idea why maybe a server issue. In the meantime you can get a free one here http://www.web-site-map.com/ if you have below 3500 links. Sometimes it will map more depending on server load. I generally use this as it doesn't map out of stocks where as the Cubecart one does.

    Stock Levels

    Thanks mojee, yes I realise that but my problem is how do I find what went out of stock since I last checked. Currently I am using a spreadsheet to identiy what has gone out of stock in last 24 hours by comparing a snapshot of the stock levels at the different times. We have 7500 products listed and unfortunatelly a lot of them are out of stock so the Stock Warning list isn't much use to us. I need to be able to identify what went out of stock since we last checked, say last 24 hours. An email when a product goes out of stock would be really helpful to identfy these in real time and maybe a list of items that have gone out of stock listed in date/time order.
  17. I know we have a stock warning feature in admin but would be helpful if we could identify when a product went out of stock. Ideally if we could get an email to admin when a product goes out of stock. Is this possible?
  18. Many thanks for the info bsmither. Will play about with it and see how I get on. I have it almost there but can't get the image to move from the top of the container to the middle. Think I will need to set a new class and try it with that as getting some odd results when I change the existing one as it is used in other sections of the page.
  19. Had a look at this a bit further and it seems the image thumbnail isn't in its own frame so maybe I need to look at creating a frame for it.
  20. Thanks for that seems like a handy utility to have. What I am hoping to achieve is to make the image frames all the same size with a white background and center the images vertically and horizontally within the frame. The images sizes are OK as they are as there does seem to be some sort of automatic resizing going on when the thumbnails are created.
  21. How would I make all the image boxes the same size like they were in V3 - V5? Need them to all be equal height and width so that all the product titles line up when in grid view. I'm using Foundation skin V6.10.
  22. Check to make sure that the product name/title in admin doesn't have a blank space at the beginning. Failing that you could try deleting and relisting the product see if that solves it.
  23. If you haven't made any changes to the database design e.g changed field names, added fields, changed any field properties etc in your V6 mirror site then you should be able to do your update without having to worry about the database tables.
