  1. Thanks to your help Lastwolf, I almost have this working. But it seems there are a bunch of images of the same that I guess are different sizes. Cubecart seemed to create these. Then the name has for instance : image.105.jpg image.300.jpg and so on. So I thought I would just add the name in the lines without the size and the CSS would grab the right one. But unless I add the size, it does not display. So does this sound correct to you? And if so, this just means I am coding the size in for the thumbs and the big picture?
  2. Thank you, I will try and test this tonight!! I assume I just put this in the "source" tab. So href and src both point to the same image correct? Do I repeat the entire ul section for a new row of thumbs? Are the two classes : medium-block-grid-3... and image-gallery defined somewhere other in the site source code? Sorry to ask so many questions, I am a fast learner but ask seemingly 100's of questions to get there. So far my biggest accomplishment is the drop downs I made using collapseable css based on bsmither pointing me in the correct direction.
  3. I am using default foundation skin. That sounds like a great idea, I just don't know where to start to find that. As a stop gap I have created a product called frame color and am linking it from the product pages that need it. But it is cumbersome at best.
  4. What I want to do is create a document that has color swatches of all current in stock colors. I want them to be smallish, like big thumbnails but clickable to show a bigger picture of it. Can someone help me to do this?
  5. While I did not find an easy way to do this really, I did discover option sets. It seems to me this gives me the ability to add to the set and it will get added to everything that uses the set. So that works fine for what I need. It would be really cool if we could attach a small icon to the attribute such as a color swatch, but that is likely way too much I assume.
  6. I am not sure if that can be done or not. But I don't think we could have a chat conversation that way. Maybe the simplest thing is to just put my Discord info up static. then people could at least get me that way if they wanted. I will consider the invite link to join the server, but they are not my servers so I am not certain that would be ok. I will have to ask the admins first. Again thanks for the help.
  7. I suppose it could, but what I was hoping to do was be able to let someone DM me directly. Sort of like an old school AOL IM. I don't do tweeter/FB/instagram/...
  8. I have several products that all have the same color options. The colors are being updated often. The issue is I miss some of the products when updating the colors. I have already decided to create a document displaying the colors instead of adding now pics to each product. Now I want to find a better way for the customers to pick the color. In my limited coding mind, I want the option to be from a pick list drop down, that the list comes from a master list that I can keep up to date. Does this question make sense? Sometimes I leave out vital information because I know what I want to do, but get tongue tied trying to type it out.
  9. Thanks B, it would seem that I may not be able to do what I want anyway. I have yet to find a way to provide a direct link to be able to DM me on Discord unless you are a Discord member, or something like that. So I guess this will not be resolved despite your awesome help and example. On the bright side, I did learn a little more
  10. it would not hurt for sure. I was gonna try to see if looking at the existing code helped. But surely easier to get a head start.
  11. Thanks as always!! I will see if I can sort it out
  12. As the title says, I want to add a link to Discord servers in the footer where Facebook and such are. Is there a way to do this? Or will it require some code hacking
  13. everything depends on where you are in the files tab. If you are in the "root" the creating a folder will place it in the root, uploading a file will place it in the root. So if you want to upload a file to a folder named child in the root then these are the steps: while in the root on the files tab, click the create folder tab. Make new folder named child. click the files tab, child folder should now be there. double click the child folder, this should put you in the child folder now hit the upload tab. browse for the files to upload, that should be in the child folder. Click the files tab to see you have the files. click return to parent to get to the root directory. as an alternate to bsmither ftp suggestion, if you have access to your files through your host, you can directly upload the files through your host file manager. It seems to me they are then just magically there.
  14. I use the no calculated rate for the rest of the world to not allow an order if not in my shipping zone. So I am sure bsmither is correct (as usual ) that you simply need to remove the rates from the EU zone.
  15. I am not sure what to call what I want to do. But while trying to find how to code what I want, I found an example. If you look at the bottom of this page https://dequeuniversity.com/library/aria/table-responsive , you will see 4 bars/buttons/something that when you click they open and show text. I want to do this in a product description that has a lot of features. In fact better would be if the expanded thing were a table so that I could have a qty next to the item on the list. Can someone show me an example how to do this, or what to google so I can find it? I prefer to do this without JS, not because I don't like it, just not actually sure how to host that and didn't want to take on that as well.
  16. Here we are 5 years later. It seems like it is still the case that the customer can not pay for an admin created order. Is this true? If so, what is the point of the admin created order? I was hoping to be able to create a custom order for someone, I didn't want to have to create a coupon just so 1 customer could get a special price once.
  17. So are you saying I should not get it until they have updated it?
  18. Maybe this is here somewhere, but google did not find it. I want to be able to give a certain customer group a 10% discount on whatever they buy anytime they buy it. I looked at using the pricing feature for retail vs groups, but that seems a bit painful for what I am trying to do. I was originally thinking I could issue a promo coupon to the people that should get the discount, but I could not see how to restrict it to only them. Then from googling I found the customer group stuff, that has lead me here. So the question is can I somehow apply a given discount automatically to a certain customer?
  19. Thanks for that insight I too use Librecalc. I did find you can save your entire spreadsheet as HTML using the save as file function. That will save it as a table. Then edit as needed in notepad ++ or whatever and paste the code in source mode. This worked pretty well, but I did notice in the description editor the table looked really nice, but on the site it was not the same. I suppose this has to do with how my browser displays the page. I do you updated firefox.
  20. Is there a simple way to add a portion of a spreadsheet to a product description? It does not need to be a table (although it could be). I just don't want to re-type the content.
  21. Thank you, for now I have set all the min's to 1. I will try and adjust that script this weekend.
  22. Yes, some of the things do happen. I do get the email notice about the new order. But it seems I to not be in the transaction log and the stock level was not reduced. I changed when to reduce to be when order is complete instead of on payment, so at least for now the level changes. I will turn on error_log and wait. Likely I will order something to test things out myself. I am using Foundation skin. But now that I think about it, I may have been using crosshatch when it did work before in September. Thank you for the help
  23. Well it seems like I am not able to set the max purchase qty to blank to disable it. So from the product page you can only add 0 to the basket, then go to the basket to adjust purchase qty. My work around so far is to make the max something like 100, then it works.
  24. I don't really know how to look at the database with an external viewer, but no worries about that. for the stock level, if I change when it is reduced (like when I process the order) it will then work even if Paypal does not update my logs?
