  1. Absolutely Amazing. Thanks bsmither that worked a treat
  2. Hello Everyone. I found this post which I was hoping would answer my question. Dirty Butter asked six questions, and the original poster wasnt actually building a site. But anyway Ive listed them and my answers here. What Id really like to do is have the home page latest products listed alphabetically, rather than by when they were added. 1. What CC version are you on and what skin? A. 6.2.2 - Skin e-Shift Magenta 2. Is your install stock or has it been edited? A. Not sure what he was asking, but Ive added products 3. What is your store url? A. https://elvis-online.co.uk/shop/ 4. Do you use Categories/subcategories? A. Yes 5. How many products do you want on the homepage? A. 16 6. Are you wanting to eliminate the Featured, Latest, Sale Items, and Popular sections? A. No Hope you can help. Thanks Phillip
  3. Thanks for that. Ill take a look
  4. You got that right about majento. I looked at it a couple of weeks ago and the menu options in the admin part confused me. But the technical question. If I sell a white tee shirt, can I have a drop down menu for size within the tee shirt main page ? Thanks Phillip
  5. Hello Al. Totally mean it, five stars. I had issues before but that was due to 1and1 being unhelpful pratts. Maybe 1and1 staff could come work with you or havenswift hosting for a couple of weeks, learn how to NOT read from a script and how to give proper support. Correct me if Im wrong, but dont you guys do this forum support for free ?? And its in the hope of a company buying licenses etc ? By the way, heard youve become a dad, congrats. Is it your first ? Phillip
  6. Hello Havenswift. Just for the record, Im absolutely impressed with cubecart, dont have any problems and have been impressed with the fact that cubecart looks so easy and small time, but once you start using it you find that its just as good as the big boys. Ive got my own shopfront using cubecart and dont intend to swap. I was looking at the possibility of using majento to setup a takeaway food shops online ordering system. They dont want to go to justeat, as justeat charge too much, so this shop wants it "inhouse". Obviously there needs to be sub options when ordering product A, like size and whether the customer wants all salad, or salad no onion etc. So I was going to setup majento on my site to try and figure it out, and let the shop see a running test before installing on their own host. But does cubecart allow for sub selections, IE what size pizza, and if you order that type of tee shirt, then select the size etc. Thanks
  7. Hi Everyone Is it possible to install and run both cubecart and majento on the same web hosting server ? Thanks Phillip
  8. NOODLEMAN !!!!!!!!!! You stud muffin bad boy. A Big, Big, Big "Thank you" to you chap. Spot on. If I had a copy of your theme, could I rename it and install it alongside the standard foundation ? Or would all the css files be screwed up ?
  9. Thank you Noodleman. Ill try that and see if I dont screw it up
  10. Hello Everyone. Ive now changed ISP provider because 1and1 support was dire. I had a previous post about 500 server error, which they didnt even want to look at but now Im running cubecart with pickaweb and its running sweet. But anyway. Im using the Foundation Skin, and my daft question is........ Is this the same skin as Noodlemans https://www.noodleman.co.uk/ ??? If so Id like to configure mine to be wide rather than just the middle 60 per cent, and also to make my logo stand out bigger like Noodlemans. Thanks for any help. Ive been really happy and impressed with the fantastic support from cubecart. Phillip
  11. Update. I can log into my admin page, but I now dont get any page listed when trying to see my shopfront, no index no nothing. Would anyone have an idea of where I could look ? Thanks Phillip
  12. Hello Everyone. Dont know what I did, but I had to reinstall cubecart (latest version) onto my 1&1 host site. Deleted old database and created a new one, setup cubecart, and now Ive setup shop and added products. But what Im getting is kind of the above issues that I had with my intranet, but now on my web hosting site. Ive added a box set to a section (blue ray), and gone through all the options, but the page isnt being displayed. Also when I upload artwork I get a network 500 error and the page shows the artwork hasnt been uploaded. Clearing cache and refreshing seems to do the trick, but in my artwork folder list no artwork is being listed ? Any ideas ? Thanks Phillip my website shopfront is at www.elvis-online.co.uk/shoponline Clicking on Movies > Blue-Ray doesnt show up despite adding Game of Thrones Season 1 boxset.
  13. Hi bsmither. Your answer made me upload the files to my own website, where I also have cubecart installed and a nice shopfront already running. Changing the url within the product to direct to a physical online location gets me one step closer. In the email is a link, clicking on the link opens my cubecart customer portal page (on the intranet server), an error is displayed that the file still cant be found, but there is now buttons to click for download, but alas poor oric no file. So although it doesnt work if the shopfront is on an intranet server at least Ive had fun finding out. So a big thankyou for your help. Phillip
  14. Hello Everyone. Im going to bore you here with loads of details just to ask a simple question. I have my own web domain with a shopfront using cubecart. Fantastic ecommerce guys. Ive tried x-cart and magento, and basically magento was tooooo technical, you needed to know everything, whereas cubecart has a more user friendly frontend so you dont really have to worry about the backend. Ive setup a home intranet server mainly as a backup of my websites, but I also wanted plex and a working copy of my shopfront. So far all works perfectly. The server is currently running Ubuntu 18.04 I wanted to mess with digital downloads and have uploaded four mp3 files to /var/www/html/shop/downloads/music I have setup the digital products within my store, and everything goes through smoothly, emails are sent to admin and the customer. But how do I setup the digital download link which should be sent in the customers email ? I bet 1 GBP that this is a really stupid question, and that the answer is just checking a box somewhere. Thanks Phillip I should have also added that in the digital page of the product, at the bottom is a box called "Custom File Path". Ive entered name . mp3 UPDATE. Just received the email with the download link. Openning the link in firefox opens the shop frontend with an error message The following errors were detected: It has not been possible to locate the download file.
  15. Over on the right hand side is "Copy database to:" and then underneath is a load of boxes Structure only Structire and date Data only Create db before copying Add drop table Auto increment Add constraints Switch to copied db The ones that are auto selected are Structure and Data, Create DB and Add auto increment. So I entered the db name of the db I wanted followed by _copy, hit "Go" and got the error message
  16. Ive logged into 1&1, gone to phpmyadmin, selected the correct dbase, got as far as naming the backup dbase <Name_copy> and Im getting this error 1044 - Access denied for user <dbase name> to <dbase name_copy>
  17. Hi Keat. If you can do an idiots guide for me to download from 1&1 cpanel, or whatever panel you need, and then import into the cubecart on my home server. Now you mention phpmyadmin, I will have to check to make sure its install on my server. Thanks Phillip
  18. Yes both cubecart and same version
  19. Hello Again. I have an online shopfront with a nice large database of items for sale. I have now got an intranet server running and have installed cubecart on the intranet server, and it runs brilliantly. Id like to export the database from my online shop and import to my intranet server shop. Would https://support.cubecart.com/knowledgebase/article/View/216/42/how-do-i-move-my-cubecart-store-from-one-hosting-account-to-another be the way to go forward ? Thanks Phillip
  20. OK........ bsmither thanks for the reply, kind of helpful, was way over my head, but at least it pointed me in the right direction. Did a google and the second link led me to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18740419/how-to-set-allowoverride-all I did the following : Open Putty and log into Ubuntu Server sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf <Directory /var/www/> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Require all granted </Directory> and change it to; <Directory /var/www/> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All Require all granted </Directory> Save and exit file sudo service apache2 restart sudo a2enmod rewrite to enable module rewrite. sudo systemctl restart apache2 Ive now retested my intranet site and it works now. So thank you, thats another piece of great info that I can add to my "Howto" guide. Phillip
  21. Hello Everyone. Ive setup an old box as an intranet server running Ubuntu 18.04. Ive also installed lamp, php, mysql and mariadb. I next created a db for cubecart and was then able to install cubecart v6. I can log into the cubecart admin page, setup store settings, add products, add payment plugin, surf the intranet shop, add products to cart by just clicking on "Add to cart" if a product is listed as a "Latest Product". My problem is if I want to go in to the product and see a description, I get the following error page: " The requested URL /shop/fanclub/fanclub-01.html was not found on this server. Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 80" Have i missed something, or would it be a problem with missing software from setting up Ubuntu ? Thanks Phillip
