  1. They look fine to me in Fire Fox. Maybe you need to delete your internet cookies and cache.

    New Website

    I did that once. I even had the whole CC navigation system and 'buy' buttons linking to the CC cart. It was more trouble than it was worth and I decided to make CC look like I wanted it to.
  3. After much work I finally got my computer working exactly like I want it to.
  4. A major upgrade is due sometime in April I think but it will not be released until proper testing has taken place.
  5. In your skin directory/styleSheets/style.css and layout.css
  6. Mapedit creates an html map of your image that is uploaded to the directory where your image is.
  7. That sounds great - have you got any links to how to do this (Bit lazy of me really) Stewart Not really but if you contact me through msn, yahoo or icq I'll be glad to walk you through it
  8. Hi Stewart, I think you do what you need with Cube Cart. You can create articles as site documents through the admin control panel or seperate html pages and link to them in a side box. They can even be java pop up windows. I have successfully done this in the past.

    lost password

    If you have managed to forget your admin password and for some reason you cannot get the "Reset Password" function to work please follow this process: 1. Access your database using a tool such as phpMyAdmin and browser the table CubeCart_admin_users. It should contain the list of administrator accounts to access the admin interface of your store. 2. We need to now create a file to show us what the md5 hash of the password you require should be. Using notepad make a file with content: <?php echo md5("password"); ?> 3. Replace password with your desired password. 4. Save this file as md5.php and upload it to your webserver. 5. Execute this in your browser and copy the output. 6. Edit the admin user with phpMyAdmin and paste this output into their password field. If done successfully then you should now be able to access the admin interface of your store.
  10. Stephen this has been answered many many times. But here it is again: Try this: In the includes/content/index.inc.php find this line: for($i=0;$i<count($latestProducts);$i++){ Replace with this code $across=4; $index->assign("TW",100/$across); for($i=0;$i<count($latestProducts);$i++){ if (!(($i+1) % $across)) { $index->assign("TXT_TR","</tr><tr>"); } else { $index->assign("TXT_TR",""); } in skins/{insert skin name}/styleTemplates/content/index.tpl replace all code between <!-- BEGIN: repeat_prods --> and CODE <!-- END: repeat_prods --> including those two lines above with this code CODE <table width="100%" border="0"><tr> <!-- BEGIN: repeat_prods --> <td width="{TW}%"> <div style="float: center; text-align: center;"> <a href="index.php?act=viewProd&productId={VAL_PRODUCT_ID}"><img src="{VAL_IMG_SRC}" alt="{VAL_PRODUCT_NAME}" border="0" /></a> <br /> <a href="index.php?act=viewProd&productId={VAL_PRODUCT_ID}" class="txtDefault">{VAL_PRODUCT_NAME}</a> <br /> {TXT_PRICE} <span class="txtSale">{TXT_SALE_PRICE}</span> </div> </td> {TXT_TR} <!-- END: repeat_prods --> </tr></table> The $across variable is used to specify number products across.

    Cart Transfer

    Make a backup of your database using phpMyAdmin. Download your entire store to your hard drive. At your new host, create an empty database using the same database name and upload your database to it, again using phpMyAdmin. Upload your store to your new host and change the paths (if needed) in the includes/global.inc file.
  12. This is covered in the pinned posts. Click on the Skins and Templates Questions link in my signature.
  13. A Windows server. Sorry M8 CC does not work well on a Windows server but there are posts about it so do a search.
  14. It's a unique page but I find it confusing. Your main image is linked to http://www.2manytshirts.net/cc3/# which is your home page. It's not your usual url. Your navigation system is not easy to find. I'd hate to suggest you change your design but I'd also like to see this site easier to navigate.
  15. It's good. As long as you have a web presence, your site will be spidered. This makes it easier for people looking for the products you sell to find you.
  16. You should be able to add {SESSION} to your cart box and remove the Account box. There is a mod at cubecart.org that puts your site docs in a side box. In index.tpl in your side box code, removing the &nbsp;will allow the boxes to get closer together. It is not possible to have customers order without registering. The closest you can get is the Express Checkout Mod. As to your last question: The category page layout is controlled in layout.css with thse two sections: #subCats { background-color: #EBEDFE; text-align: center; border: 1px solid #C9CEFC; margin: 0px; padding: 3px; float: left; width: 387px; } .subCat { text-align: center; padding: 8px; float: left; width: 110px; height: 50px; Play with the padding. I hope this helps.
  17. I am not going to go through a registration but your products seem to be added to my basket before registration. I am using Fire Fox.
  18. Looks like your site is being spidered by search engines
  19. You can try to add Pay Pal buttons to your products.
  20. It's telling you that your database password is incorrect in your includes/global.inc file
  21. Paul, First let me say I think you've done an amazing job in putting your site together and I am happy to hear you say that you've done hours of research. My business is SEO and any web master who doesn't research their products is in for a long haul. Your site took 27 seconds for me to load on a cable connection and like it or not there are still a ton of folks who still use a 56k connection so IMO we can't ignore them. I think you have to consider your reasons for your online presence. Is it to display animated GIF's or is it to sell a product. Whenever I lose my focus I default to the New York Times web site. Strange as it may sound, they, and other highly successful sites have a few things in common: 1. The most important information is 'above the fold'. In other words, everything you want to convey should be immediately visible. 2. Images are used sparingly and only for their immediate value. 3. Navigation is clear and simple. 4. There is nothing on the site that does not add to the mission. 5. The site is constantly changing with new content being added regularly. As painful as it may be, consider of what value are the animations on your site. Do they add or take away from your mission? Your meta key words, IMHO are not well thought out. They are too general and you will not rank well for them as they are too competitive and since most of your categories are empty you will take a big hit. We have 5 seconds to get a potential customer's attention and if we lose them, they are not coming back.
  22. Your URL is http://ccgi.vorlockfoss.plus.com/gagol//index.php. Note the //. You have an extra / probably in your path. Your site is a redirect and you will suffer in SERPS for that as well as your slow loading times. IMAGES The total size of your images is 94327 bytes, which is over 30K. Consider optimizing your images for size, combining them, and replacing graphic rollovers with CSS. SCRIPT The total size of external your scripts is 15739 bytes, which is over 8K. Consider optimizing your scripts for size, combining them, and using compression where appropriate for any scripts placed in the HEAD of your documents. CSS The total size of your external CSS is 10806 bytes, which is over 8K. Consider optimizing your CSS for size by eliminating whitespace, using shorthand notation, and combining multiple CSS files where appropriate. The total size of this page is 143215 bytes, which will load in 33.94 seconds on a 56Kbps modem. Consider reducing total page size to less than 30K to achieve sub eight second response times on 56K connections. Pages over 100K exceed most attention thresholds at 56Kbps. The total size of this HTML file is 22343 bytes, which is above 20K but below 100K. With a 10K ad and a logo this means that your page will load in over 8.6 seconds. Consider optimizing your HTML and eliminating unnecessary features. To give your users a better experience, consider using positioning to display useful content within the first two seconds.
