  1. Hi all I have written a routine using MySql and PHP to download and import product lists from my suppliers. It all works fine, and is basically putting items directly into the inventory via transform/staging tables, and populating image_index and category_index tables. It is pretty fast, takes a minute or so to import about 20000 products, I dont want it to take much longer. My question is, should I have done it this way, or was there a better way using hooks or builtin Cubecart features and functions? I have basically done it all from scratch. Finally, how can I turn the code that I have written into a plugin? At the moment I just put the php files on my server and run using cron. Thanks
  2. Hi I have many manufacturers, and customers will want to filter by manufacturers. I am surprised that this is not built in, but how can I add this in to the foundation theme, CC6? Thanks
  3. Hi, sorry to hijack this thread, but I also need to automatically export all my products to Google Merchant. I just want to store the feed file on the server so that google can fetch it, my prices change daily so I cannot do this manually. Will the builtin feature, or the plugin achieve this, if so can someone explain the steps? Thanks
  4. OK I can login using the server IP address, but not the name. The website itself works fine using the name. Is there anywhere to set in Cubecart what URL to expect?
  5. Hi, I cannot login at all to the admin site, it gives me the CSRF error each time, regardless of browser. This is a local site, I have full access to the server and DB. It was working fine for some time. Latest version. Any ideas? Thanks
  6. Hi The odd thing is that every single line comes out wrong with the same fields mapped to the wrong ones. But I expect that you are right, Excel is somehow messing up the encoding and cubecart doesn't like it. RE the images, that is a shame that Cubecart cannot host the images somewhere else, it would save me bandwidth and the trouble of uploading 1000's of images. Though as a plus side, at least I know the images will be available if my site is. I think I am going to end up writing my own plugins to handle the import, as I really need it automated as well, but I just want to get a manual import as a backup working first. I'll see if I can get Excel to save in proper UTF-8 encoding format. Just seems odd that CC can read it fine and I tell it to map the fields, and then it gets it completely wrong. Thanks for the help.
  7. Hi, I am trying to use the import catalog feature, without much success. I have a CSV file, seperated with semi colons. It looks perfectly fine in Excel, with everything in the right columns. But when importing, everything gets completely messed up and in the wrong fields.I think it is to do with the format of the file. I did get the import to work using the file from the wholesaler (pixmania-pro), but I need to manipulate the data in Excel and just have the items I want etc. But even with that file, the images don't load when the field is an HTML link to the image hosted online. So I have 2 issues: 1. CSV doesn't work properly, even when matching up the fields 2. Images don't work if they are HTML links Any ideas please? The CSV and the fields I have selected are attached. Thanks pixpro_feed1.csv
  8. I am after a drop shipping module too. I need to be able to import catalogs from supplies, add some margin, calculate delivery costs, etc. So Ian - I for one would be very interested in your module.
  9. Hi, I have a problem with the category menu, it is sometimes using a path which is the IP Address of the server, e.g., instead of the site name. This is the IP of the server, but results in an SSL error. I have set the store path in the SSL settings, and otherwise SSL is working fine. Any ideas? Thanks
  10. Well, not sure about that, but managed to get it almost there. I basically moved the fa-shoppingcart from box-basket.pxp. into main.ptp, into the same div as the small search and hamburger icons. Still have 2 issues: - Clicking on hamburger shows search as well - Icons overlap the logo small screens. Possibly my logo is too large? Anyway, getting there, at least it will be useable on phones and tablets now. Has anyone else done a cubecart theme using top-bar from foundation? Cheers.
  11. Hi there, having some trouble with the foundation top-bar. Works fine when using large screens, but using small screens the basket, search, and hamburger menu icons don't show at all. Site is www.barebonesuk.com, running 6.0.2, started from the foundation theme in 6.0.2. I basically inserted the top-bar code, and moved the logo, basket etc code into it. Any pointers please? My top-bar code is: <!-- Top bar--> <div class="contain-to-grid sticky"> <nav class="top-bar" data-topbar role="navigation" data-options="sticky_on: large"> <ul class="title-area"> <li class="name"> <h1><a href="{$STORE_URL}" class="main-logo"><img src="{$STORE_LOGO}" height="47" width="326" alt="{$META_TITLE}"></a></h1> </li> </ul> <section class="top-bar-section"> <!-- Right Nav Section --> <ul class="right"> <div class="row"> <div class="right text-center">{include file='templates/box.basket.php'}</div> <div class="right text-center show-for-small"><a class="left-off-canvas-toggle button white tiny" href="#"><i class="fa fa-bars fa-2x"></i></a> <a class="button white tiny show-small-search" href="#"><i class="fa fa-search fa-2x"></i></a></div> {include file='templates/box.currency.php'} {include file='templates/box.language.php'} {include file='templates/box.session.php'} </div> </ul> <!-- Left Nav Section --> <ul class="left"> <li class="has-form"> <div class="row collapse"> <div class="large-8 small-9 columns"> {include file='templates/box.search.php'} </div> </div> </li> </ul> </section> </nav> </div> <!-- End of top bar -->
  12. https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=76d84e376326fa32&id=76D84E376326FA32%21100277&v=3&ithint=photo,PNG&authkey=!AJvKJgqce0-0CtE Here is my config, seems OK to me. There is no SSL root path since there is no store directory, the whole site is the store. PS this forum does not work properly in IE11, image and URL controls do not work.
  13. Hi there I have bought a certificate and installed, site is accessible with no errors using https, but cubecart 6 won't let me enable SSL in the settings page. I select Yes, hit save, and then it just goes back to No. Any ideas? Site is www.barebonesuk.com Thanks
  14. Looks to me from the screenshots that you can specify specific products. I'll contact the developer, thanks. Would be nice to build this in to CC if you ask me.
  15. Hi, does v6 have any built in related items functionality? I am looking for the ability to configure related items for individual items, or categories, and have them display on the product pages, or checkout. I can see a commericial extension here: http://www.cubecartforums.org/index.php?showtopic=19061 Is this the recommendation, and is this site recommended and/or affiliated with cubecart.com? Thanks
  16. Can anyone tell me what format for the CSV is required? I tried to export the current products, but that just gives html. Thanks
  17. Thanks Al. By the way, great videos on Vimeo, and very impressed with CC6 so far, thanks for all your hard work!
  18. Hi I have Cubecart 6 installed, with the default theme. I want to start customising it, I really like the floating menu as per www.cubecart.com, ebuyer.com etc. So I'd like to move the logo, login, search, basket etc to the top and have it float. Sorry not expecting someone to do this for me, but can anyone point me in the right direction? I don't want to reinvent the wheel if not necessary. Thanks
  19. Thanks - yes I will try the manual install. Just also wanted something that would be updated/supported by the hosting company, but I will do this for a test site whilst in development. Thanks
  20. Hi, just wondering if anyone knows when this is likely to come out of beta, and therefore be available on installatron? Waiting for this for a new site. Thanks
