  1. Thanks for the hint re global.inc.php prefix. I know what the problem is now, will correct it next time I go to the library and access the high-speed internet. I noticed a bug today in the modified store when I went to the back end to change material pricing. I figured out what was causing the problem and modified a custom file called products.materials.inc.php and that took care of it. I went there because I also saw in the error list, "unable to load content for products: materials." Hopefully by tomorrow all the errors will be finished. I'm glad I checked in the cpanel error folder as well as the cubecart admin system error log, as the errors only showed up in the folder. Then I'll download the entire store and upload it again to a test2 folder, using the library's high-speed internet.
  2. Yes it does have the new store folder specified there, I didn't write it in! shop6.2.1.test is the exact name of the folder. I may just go to the library where I can access high speed internet, and start fresh with a test2 folder, that way I can test filezilla to make sure both my downloaded copy is good and can also upload correctly. I would have to do that anyway if my store ever went kaput, so I might as well try it now to see if will even work. If it does, then I will keep a good and current copy downloaded on my computer knowing it will work if I ever have to upload it back. Since I've never actually uploaded my entire store back online before, I'm not even sure at this point if the downloads are good, so will be testing this out soon. Thanks for the info on the .htaccess file, I will check and make sure that it's updated afterward. I also have another .htaccess file same level as the old index.html file, that one just redirects from my website url to website url/shop6.2.1 and then to the storefront. I don't think that one affects cubecart, only web surfers who type in the url and don't know anything about the store folder, redirects to the store. ## Default store 404 page ErrorDocument 404 "<html></html> ##### START CubeCart .htaccess ##### ### GZIP Compression ### <ifmodule mod_deflate.c> AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/text text/html text/plain text/xml text/css application/x-javascript application/javascript </ifmodule> ### Files Expiration ### <IfModule mod_expires.c> ExpiresActive On ExpiresByType text/html "access 0 seconds" ExpiresDefault "access 7 days" </IfModule> ### File Security ### <FilesMatch "\.(htaccess)$"> Order Allow,Deny Deny from all </FilesMatch> ### Apache directory listing rules ### DirectoryIndex index.php index.htm index.html IndexIgnore * <ifModule mod_headers.c> Header always append X-Frame-Options SAMEORIGIN </ifModule> ### Rewrite rules for SEO functionality ### <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /shop6.2.1.test/ ##### START v4 SEO URL BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY ##### RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (.*)$ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule cat_([0-9]+)(\.[a-z]{3,4})?(.*)$ index.php?_a=category&cat_id=$1&%1 [NC] RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (.*)$ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule prod_([0-9]+)(\.[a-z]{3,4})?$ index.php?_a=product&product_id=$1&%1 [NC] RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (.*)$ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule info_([0-9]+)(\.[a-z]{3,4})?$ index.php?_a=document&doc_id=$1&%1 [NC] RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (.*)$ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule tell_([0-9]+)(\.[a-z]{3,4})?$ index.php?_a=product&product_id=$1&%1 [NC] RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (.*)$ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule _saleItems(\.[a-z]+)?(\?.*)?$ index.php?_a=saleitems&%1 [NC,L] ##### END v4 SEO URL BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY ##### RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/favicon.ico RewriteRule ^(.*)\.html?$ index.php?seo_path=$1 [L,QSA] </IfModule> ### Default store 404 page ### ErrorDocument 404 /shop6.2.1.test/index.php ## Override default 404 error document for missing page resources ## <FilesMatch "\.(gif|jpe?g|png|ico|css|js|svg)$"> ErrorDocument 404 "<html></html> </FilesMatch> ##### END CubeCart .htaccess #####
  3. Decided to go ahead and create a duplicate store for testing. I went to cpanel to try copying my entire cubecart version 6.2.1 folder into a test folder, cubecart-store-test. I selected all, copied, and gave the new folder name. Everything looked good, so I also created a new db and then uploaded my current db into that. And I went to global.inc in the new folder and gave it the name of the new db to use. Then I went to log in at the new folder admin and there was no login screen. I checked again, and saw that all the subfolders had copied over except one, the admin folder. So I went back and copied just the one folder over. I thought that the first folder which was admin had not been selected with the select all and that was the problem. But after I copied over the one folder, I could see that it disappeared once again. It says 755 like the other folders but it didn't want to be copied over! Then I went to filezilla and uploaded it that way. I've got the login page now, but after I entered my password, I received a can't connect page error. Softaculous says they can copy or clone a store so it can be tested this way, called staging. I was going to try that way, but this way seemed simpler to me. Is the way I'm trying to do it not going to work, or do I just have to tweak some more files besides just the global.inc ? By the way, I am getting no more errors in the back end error tab, but while I was in cpanel, I saw an error_log folder and checked it. I am getting some errors there, as listed below, but I guess they can't be that big or I would see them listed in the back end error tab. [17-Aug-2018 16:41:19 Canada/Mountain] PHP Notice: `latest` is not allowed as a key in 'CubeCart_inventory' table! in /home/user4087/public_html/shop6.2.1/classes/db/database.class.php on line 914 [17-Aug-2018 16:41:19 Canada/Mountain] PHP Notice: `doc_privacy` is not allowed as a key in 'CubeCart_documents' table! in /home/user4087/public_html/shop6.2.1/classes/db/database.class.php on line 914
  4. Softaculous installed the correct version, 6.2.1. But soon after it was installed, I continued the testing I was doing with a working modified 6.0.12 version, trying to pass the mods over to version 6.1.13. I created a new db and then inserted a db I had been using into the new one, and tried to get it working with version 6.1.13. After a certain period of time I realized I was not going to get the calc mod to function properly there, and I decided to learn more about why most of my pictures were not appearing in the listings, only a few pictures were showing up. After finding some info online about this, it appeared that there were 3 tables involved - inventory, image index, and filemanager. I started studying the index numbers in all these, comparing a product in that db with same product in the original version 6.0.12 where everything worked, including the pictures. I never really figured out how it all worked, but I noticed that some numbers in file manager were different for same product in both versions. Since the original version was working just fine, I decided to take the file manager table from 6.0.12 and insert into version 6.1.13 after clearing the table. I had nothing to lose since the half baked calc program wasn't going anywhere, nothing to lose if things didn't go right. After I did this, what a surprise, all the pictures showed up! This modified db also gave me about 100 products, arranged in multiple categories and subcategories, and in two languages. Only the calc didn't work, and the db part of the calc did work. The link on the back end didn't show up, but I knew what the url was that the link would have generated, and when I pasted it into url in the back end, I was able to access the 2 materials prices and change prices.. After that success I decided to download the latest cubecart version which was about a year ahead of the one I was trying to modify.. I did receive the correct db with latest version, and as soon as I saw there was one test product and one test category, I decided to keep that db in a safe place and create a brand new db, after which I inserted a copy of the db from version 6.1.13. I then re-adjusted the global.inc file and Voila! All products all neatly arranged in their proper category. Test item and test category vanished! I really didn't want to delete that one or manually add all my stuff.. So I was very pleased about it, and that's when I decided to get serious about getting the calc mod to work! I requested and received good documentation about all changes made by the programmer, I just had to go one step at a time, and try to make sense of it and what each part did to the program. I re-documented everythng, and also have my own mods documented. After a month or two I succeeded in getting things to work exactly as they did in version 6.0.12, including the search error. After your last post, and another before it regarding db schema, I realize what the problem is. The db schema gets changed periodically, and the one I have from version 6.1.13 is missing some tables the current version has, or some columns in some tables.. Today I went and found the original version 6.2.1 db that I kept in a safe place and copied the order summary table. Then I deleted the order summary table in the test db. Then I added the latest version order summary table into test db. Now everything works fine when I checkout and no errors in error log! Probably took care of the Mr T vs Superman error I received a few days ago too.. Contains the "custom_oid" in two places.. 09 Aug 2018, 17:43 File: [orders.transactions.inc.php] Line: [79] "SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS DISTINCT `T`.`order_id`, `T`.`time`, `T`.`amount`, `T`.`gateway`, `T`.`trans_id`, `S`.`id`, `S`.`custom_oid`, `S`.`cart_order_id` FROM `cctest_CubeCart_transactions` AS `T` INNER JOIN `cctest_CubeCart_order_summary` AS `S` ON `T`.`order_id` = `S`.`cart_order_id` LIMIT 20 OFFSET 0;" - Unknown column 'S.custom_oid' in 'field list' Taking a couple days off to celebrate, then will see about setting up a duplicate store to experiment on further, and see about getting the search page to work properly.
  5. After I talked with server people I found out Softaculous was automatically saving about 250 MB of files for me on a daily basis, for older versions I was about to delete. So I turned those off and will check back in a day or two and make sure it's stopped, then delete the 250 MB from softaculous_backups folder. While I was in Softaculous I saw some other icons and it looks like I can make an extra copy of installation there, so I will go back after I take care of deleting the unneeded backups. I added the extension info table and cookie consent table to the db, because of the error messages I was getting in admin System Error Log, and those errors went away. Today I did a sample purchase from the store and checked the error log, 2 errors came up while I was checking out, Today, 11:02 File: [settings.index.inc.php] Line: [231] "SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS id FROM `cctest_CubeCart_order_summary` WHERE `custom_oid` <> '' LIMIT 1;" - Unknown column 'custom_oid' in 'where clause' Today, 11:01 File: [settings.index.inc.php] Line: [231] "SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS id FROM `cctest_CubeCart_order_summary` WHERE `custom_oid` <> '' LIMIT 1;" - Unknown column 'custom_oid' in 'where clause' Does anyone know what's causing these and the remedy?
  6. My older version cubecart won't work to test the calc because it was never 100% functional. I went there and saw the full price in the store but during checkout the total price displayed was only the "material price * material weight" part of the formula, the opposite of the search error which displays only the premium-price part. I'm going to get in contact with the server people and find out how to duplicate my latest version of cubecart folder and make another folder with .b at the end. That way I can experiment with the identical cubecart while leaving the original online and safe. If the changes work out okay, then I can move them over to original cubecart, or switch folders and put the modified folder online and use the other one for further modifications.
  7. Good Afternoon I'm building a new sitemap today and updating my new and improved seo with shorter links. I was going and copying each new link from the url of each product, from the Generic category, and while I was doing this I realized more about what the code snippet was doing. I actually have only 22 items in that category as I originally thought. These all show initially with the code snippet switched on. The part that's a little confusing is at the bottom the More button also shows. So one would think there are more to show. After the button is pressed, 44 items appear! But the additional 22 are a repeat of the first 22! As a seller I really don't care as a buyer could very well see something they like out of the 44 as easily as having 22 to look at.. But if you wanted to polish this one up a bit, I would also have it remove the More button! About changing the calculator code, well since my latest cubecart is now working with the calculator, I'm not going to change stuff there but I will go back to another older version I have that's had the calculator engine installed and working, and has same issue with search results, and experiment over there with calc code changes first. I will experiment with the older version sometime this weekend. Thanks for your interest and expertise.
  8. Update #2 on show all items in category code snippet. Checking front end today category 1 Generic showing 22 out of 44 items on initial view, .html in browser and More at bottom. Clicking More shows all 44 items, with .html#2 in url. Category 2 North American showing 16 out of 32 items on initial view, .html in browser and More at bottom. Clicking More shows all 32 items, with .html#2 in url. Going to other categories and returning to overstocked ones shows .html#2 remaining in url and all items displayed. Even though not showing all items until More at bottom is clicked, this is working way better than before the modification code was installed, and I'm giving it 5 stars. Regarding my calculator mod, does anyone know how I can get it to calculate the full price after a search (/search.html)? The calculator engine appears to be in shop/classes/catalogue.class.php $product = $this->getProductPrice($product); was commented out and formula for calculating full price was added below that. 1) shop/classes/catalogue.class.php 1.1) Find $product = $this->getProductPrice($product); and comment it out // //$product = $this->getProductPrice($product); 1.2) Find foreach ($GLOBALS['hooks']->load('class.cubecart.product_price') as $hook) include $hook; and add below if (($materials = $GLOBALS['db']->select('CubeCart_materials', array('price'), array('id' => (int)$product_data['material']))) !== false) { $surcharge=$product_data['product_weight']*$materials[0]['price']; if ($product_data['sale_price']) { $product_data['sale_price']+=$surcharge; } $product_data['material_price']=$surcharge; $product_data['price']=$product_data['price']+$surcharge; } I'm not a programmer but it looks to me that there is another cubecart file associated with the search page, that needs to have price of product commented out and formula added below that. What is the search file that I should start experimenting with? I get the full price everywhere in the catalog and thru checkout, however after doing a search with multiple results, the "price" shows as only the price (=premium) part of the formula and leaves out the material price * material weight part of the formula to be added giving a total.
  9. I probably should have just pasted it in and pushed the button. But I saw the enable box so I ticked it, entered the 99 manually, etc. I guess if you paste and push, it reads in that top bit and then deletes it. But since it was already filled in, it probably didn't delete it so I went back and deleted that bit myself, and the code now starts with the commented section. I'll try paste and push next time to test. Update on category code snippet: I went to the front end of my store to check on how many items would display, and it didn't seem to be working. Then I found another category that had even more items in it, so I went back to the code and increased the number to 32. After going back to the first category I realized I had a lot more in there, more than the 22 items I had thought, as that was all I could see after I tapped the more button.. I actually have 44 items in the category I thought had 22, so I increased the number again, to match 44 now visible, which appeared out of the blue. Now both categories "show everything" and I have a nice #2 at the end of url in each.. I'm really glad I decided to fix this, because if I don't know how many items are in these categories, then I know the shopper/buyer isn't going to know.. My categories are no longer embarrassed to "show everything," so I hope shoppers appreciate that as much as I do.
  10. I tested the code. I could see it was trying to work because when I went to view a category I got this bit at the top of the page.. Enabled: Checked Unique ID: override_page_per@cc600+ Execution Order: 99 Description: Shows all products on one page if count is X or less. Trigger: class.catalogue.pre_search Version: 1.0 Author: Forum Conversation PHP Code: So I went back and removed that part. I changed the number to 24 to allow for some new products, but still only showed the 12. Then I decided to get an exact count of how many products were in that category, 22 and changed the number to 22. Now it works perfectly. If I ever add more stock in that category then I will just update the number. Do you know if it's possible to remove the pricing from products, only after a search which displays multiple items? I have had a programmer add a nifty calculator to my cubecart, but have not been able to contact him so I'm on my own with upgrading the calculator into version 6.2.1. He provided some good documentation of his work, and I've been trying to upgrade the calc into the latest version of cubecart, at the time was v6.1.13 but could not get everything to work properly. I decided to start fresh with cubecart v6.2.1 and took the time to not use the older pages, but only the actual changes into the current v6.2.1 pages, and finally I have got it to work. Although I'm getting a few error messages, probably they are unrelated to the calc mod. V6.2.1 works fine now with the calculator. Anyway there is one bug in the calc program which was in the original program he did, and I did not have enough time to notify him because I didn't notice it until some time after the work was done. We have an extra table in the db for material, and I set the material, for instance silver, at the current market price periodically. The db knows which product is associated with which material and cubecart does a calculation to arrive at item price = material price * item weight in ozs + the normal cubecart price which is actually the premium representing manufacturing and other costs + profit. So with silver set at $16 and $5 premium, the cost shows as $21 in catalog and thru checkout. The minor bug which I would like to solve is that if a search is done, it's fine if only one product is found because it goes to the product page and only adds this colored box at the top - Just one product was found matching 'search item' - and price is calculated as usual. But if several items show in the results, then what it does is displays the prices as only the premium price of $5! Of course when the item is clicked on, the next page will show the full price, so no way a customer could buy at the $5 price. I've never even had any customers notice this or at least say anything about it before. But I would like to figure out a way to correct it. Either by causing the search results page to show no prices, or figure out how to get the calculator function to also work on that page. I think not showing the price there might be the easiest way without the programmer's help. Thanks a lot for the code snippet. That will really help when a customer views the overstocked category, to see all, not just half!
  11. I didn't even know about the Email Tempate button.. I should check all those buttons out when I have more time! Well it works. I see I have some errors in my system log, two of them I know how to solve, I need to upload the extension_info table to my test db from version 6.1.13, and also the cookie_consent , but there are two I don't understand.. They came up just now after I did the sample order.. Everything seems to work okay despite the errors but would like to not have any! Today, 17:43 File: [orders.transactions.inc.php] Line: [79] "SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS DISTINCT `T`.`order_id`, `T`.`time`, `T`.`amount`, `T`.`gateway`, `T`.`trans_id`, `S`.`id`, `S`.`custom_oid`, `S`.`cart_order_id` FROM `cctest_CubeCart_transactions` AS `T` INNER JOIN `cctest_CubeCart_order_summary` AS `S` ON `T`.`order_id` = `S`.`cart_order_id` LIMIT 20 OFFSET 0;" - Unknown column 'S.custom_oid' in 'field list' Today, 17:14 File: [settings.index.inc.php] Line: [231] "SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS id FROM `cctest_CubeCart_order_summary` WHERE `custom_oid` <> '' LIMIT 1;" - Unknown column 'custom_oid' in 'where clause'
  12. This is not a major problem but I would like to fix it. I downloaded a foreign language and was aware of a small error in the file, as I had downloaded the language before in a previous version. But before correcting it I decided to first test out in the latest version 6.2.1 and see if I could check out both in the foreign language and in English. That was successful, and when I received the confirmation email of my purchase, I was reminded to correct the error, because the Order Confirmation said "Order COnfirmation" and that's the extent of the error. So I went back to language/email_ru-RU.xml and made the correction on line 45, changed the large O to small o. I placed another sample order and received another Order COnfirmation with a large O! Waited a day, then went back to the file to make sure it was changed, and tried again. Another large O confirmed my order. After that I went to the cache folder, didn't see anything there that looked like email or RU, it was all files from yesterday or today. I hit the clear cache button and checked again, now there were only 8 files, each with current time, but no email or RU files. I went to admin maintenance and cleared the language cache and regular cache again. Still no change in emails. I did not clear the SQL cache at that time as I'm not sure what that would do. Then I went to check the database, the table email content had this line in it: (16, 'cart.order_confirmation', 'ru-RU', 'ПОдтверждение заказа #{$DATA.cart_order_id}', etc.. And the lines above it are in 'en-GB' for example (4, 'cart.order_confirmation', 'en-GB', 'Order Confirmation #{$DATA.cart_order_id}', The lines below the 'ru-RU' ones are in 'en-US' So that looks like the cause. Would clearing the SQL cache update line 16 to current? If not, how can I manually change the database? Only need to change one letter to lower case. About the GB English, it works okay but currenty using US English and GB is not switched on any longer so may be a good idea to make these other entries US English. Another item I would like to modify is one of my categories view. I have one category with about 20 items in it, and I would like all 20 items to show, not just 12 items, plus a tiny More at the bottom. The url for that is shop/1-ounce-silver-rounds.html. When the More is pressed, the link is shop/1-ounce-silver-rounds.html?page=2 and url is shop/1-ounce-silver-rounds.html#2. The latter links show not only the 2nd page, but all 20 items, which is just what I want to display. Any way I can modify this one overstocked category to display all the items as a default when selected? Regarding a cache issue earlier about the cookie notice, I figured out it was not cubecart cache causing the problems but browser cache. I solved that one on a windows computer by going to gear -> internet options -> browsing history -> settings -> check for newer versions of stored pages -> select -> Every time I visit the webpage. After that all changes made in cubecart actually changed up front.
  13. I solved this one myself, did not change the order to processing, just waited until check had cleared and then changed to "order complete." It sent an email to the customer, and the links at the bottom both work. Hi Jay, We are pleased to say that order number 180111-155005-6192 is complete. If you have ordered physical goods they should arrive shortly. Kind regards, The mystore.com Staff http://mystore.com/shop
  14. Hi, I have an interesting situation at my CubeCart Version 6.0.12 shop. I haven’t figured out any payment processing yet and not interested in paypal, so I’m simply accepting paper checks which are mailed in. A customer placed an order on Jan 31st. After a month and no check received, I decided to cancel the order. Then about the 1st of March I received the check. I forgot about it in my wallet for a week, then deposited it this past Monday. Now I think it’s time to notify the customer as I usually do, that check has been received (processing), and will send another email when shipped (completed). Since I’m still testing things out in my cubecart shop, I have a couple of orders I placed myself in January to see how everything works. After receiving the check in the mail, the order gets changed to “processing” and an email update is sent to the customer. The processing email has a couple links in it, one is to look up the order, https://mystore.com/shop/index.php?_a=vieworder&cart_order_id=180111-085747-3900 and one at the bottom to my shop https://mystore.com/ These links are exactly as spelled out in the email, and they both work. I decided to test one of my own test orders out before “processing” the late paying customer, to see what it would look like to him and how it would work. Yesterday I canceled one of my January test orders, and I received an email that the order had been canceled. Then I selected processing. I wasn’t sure if it could be done since the order had previously been canceled, but it appeared to work and I again received an email, that looked like a regular order confirmation of “processing” Thank You Jay! Your order 180111-155005-6192 has been received which was placed on 11 Jan 2018, 15:50. Please keep this email for your records. It is possible to view the status of your order online. However the email for the “previously canceled” order turned out to be a little different.. It’s almost identical, except for the links. But this is important, because after more than a month and a half, I would expect that this customer might be interested in the status of his order, and I prepared a note in the external note section, which is what I would like him to see when he checks on the order. This is what the links look like in the previously canceled, but now processing order: http://mystore.com/shop is the written link at the bottom, link is actually mystore.com/shop and will successfully take me to https://mystore.com/shop/ The other written link, to check order status, is http://mystore.com/shop/index.php?_a=vieworder&cart_order_id=180111-155005-6192 , and the actual link is mystore.com/shop/index.php?_a=vieworder&cart_order_id=180111-155005-6192 When I click on the link it opens a new tab after which an ‘s’ is added to the http, but somehow the /shop/ bit goes missing and it comes out like this https://mystore.comindex.php/?_a=vieworder&cart_order_id=180111-155005-6192 resulting in an error - Firefox can’t find the server at mystore.comindex.php. So I’m not ready to update the real customer’s order yet, because if I do, he will receive an email and click the link and then receive an error message, that will appear that the server is down and and think I’m out of business, and will also not get the message. What can I do to correct this? I’m thinking that the previous order cancellation caused the email to come from a different template. If I could find it and modify it to produce correct links with https:// in front of them, then the links would work correctly. If I can’t figure out how to do it, then I will just send him a regular email, but would like to learn some things about using the software.
  15. For now I want to keep my shop simple and not use any api gizmos until I get it working simply and maybe never, if I don't really need them. Basically I just want to add at least 2 more links to my store, one is to the index.html that was the homepage before the shop was installed, and the other is to the MailChimp html page, which looks nice but hasn't been tested yet. So I'm thinking of putting those links at the bottom of the shop homepage, perhaps making the Follow Us into a homepage link, and the Mailing List into a link to the MailChimp signup page. The subscribe box I could leave there since it works, or remove it. This is not a major thing, just a tweak I think would be cool and make subscribing people easier.. Unlike my other problem caused by random caches in the cache folder, it looks like others have already inquired about modifying the footer of cubecart.. I'm looking at one thread now, and I may check some other threads too. Will check out the info and ideas and see what I can do. If it works, I will post here. I like MailChimp because if you keep the customer list under 2000, it's a free service and works well.
