  1. I built a till system on to the back end of CubeCart - so it's doeable! I would love to make it available for others one day. I have the vision of a till system that can integrate with any e-commerce platform. And is also your accounting system too. I have done lots of the work - but its going to be the end of the year before I can do anymore work on it now.
  2. Probably what I should have said is "anything is possible if you have enough time (and desire)"! Do you know what format the live feeds are in, is it an api or is it a file that you download? I get sent .csv files from suppliers daily and then I upload them to my own admin system - which has a csv upload script in it. If you Google "csv upload script" you will get example code. You will need a new table in your database to store the uploaded data. And then you will need some more code to do whatever it is you want to do with the data. p.s. you might want to change
  3. Hi all, I'm looking to add store collection / click & collect to my website. The store collection plugin doesn't seem to do anything other than offer the free collection option (as a shipping method). So... I think I'll need to make the following improvements: 1. When choosing "Store Collection" the delivery address get's auto-filled with my shop address. 2. A BIG message to say "you have chosen to collect your order" and "please don't collect until you have received an e-mail to say your order is ready for collection". etc. etc. 3. An estimated time/date tha
  4. Everything is possible! I have stock feeds that I drag and drop in to my admin once a day - which updates retail prices and supplier stock levels. You would need someone to write the code for you, if you're not "techy".
  5. Hi Josh, I was fortunate enough to launch my website 15 years ago - when things were so much easier. It was so easy to launch a website and appear on the first page of Google or Yahoo back then! Nowdays you will have to pay for advertising. Google Shopping is brilliant though. Do you sell items that have a barcode, brand and part number? If so, you can advertise them on there for pennies per click. You can also do targeted adverising on Facebook (for pennies) - not that I have been completely successful with that though. For small businesses, you have to think outside of th
  6. Hi all, I like to still provide access to inactive products visible, when visited directly - rather than displaying a 404 page. (Some of these products get plenty of visitors from Google as no one else lists them anymore.) Whilst the product is no longer available to buy, we do have alternative products listed on the page - and it might just be that the product has been superceeded. I don't want the inactive products to appear in category pages. The only way I can see to do this is by overwriting line 1037 in the catalogue.class (inside the getProductData function) to:
  7. Brilliant. Found it! Like you mentioned, it was the htaccess file in /my_own_admin/ I used this for an extra bit of security before the login page.... AuthType Basic AuthName "Password Protected Area" AuthUserFile /home/*****/public_html/******/.htpasswd Require valid-user I've removed this and I'm straight in now. Many thanks for your help.
  8. The reason I can probably access on my phone is because I had the my_own_admin/index.php in a browser window already on my phone before the upgrade so, after the upgrade, I opened it up - was redirected to my_own_admin/login.php , logged in and it all works. That proves it is there but I can't get my head around how to allow it it to be displayed in any browser. Do you think I need in a line in the htaccess file or should a correct entry in seo.class do the job?
  9. If I go to /my_own_admin/login.php it just goes straight to the Cubecart default 404 page. Same with /my_own_admin/index.php (which would have previously directed to login.php).
  10. I can access the normal (CubeCart's) admin system. However, I have an additional admin system located at a different url (e.g. {STORE_URL}/my_own_admin/login.php). Cubecart obviously doesn't recognise the url so I'm wondering where I should let it know about it - so it doesn't send me to a 404.
  11. Hello, I have finally upgraded to v6. I have my own admin system which is at a url along the lines of: {STORE_URL}/my_own_admin/login.php I get a 404 error when I try to visit it now. (I can still access it from my phone - so it is definitely there). Would anyone know if it is best to make changes in: seo.class.php (I have already added 'my_own_admin' to the ignored url sections) or the .htacess file - or both? Many thanks, Chris
  12. Many thanks for that. That is a good tip which I'm sure I'll use. (e.g. to just show the breadcrumbs on product pages). For this though, my homepage has a completely different layout to the other pages, so I need to include the popular products amongst the hompepage code. On my existing site, I have a code snippet that loads my own version of the bestselling products - so I'll continue with this method for my new site. I'll change the "Number of popular products to display" setting to 0, so it prevents the Cubecart list getting loaded.
  13. Yeah, we get 1,000s of these too. It is very embarassing when a member of staff chases a customer for payment, only for them to say they have already paid (on a subsequent order).
  14. Hello, I am working on a new skin for my store. I want the "popular products" box just displayed on the home page, so have moved: {include file='templates/box.popular.php'} on to the "content.homepage.php" template. But it doesn't display now. I can't seem to find any reason, in the code, why it would not work. Any advice?
  15. Thanks for the Debug mode tip. I went back to using XAMPP. I then encountered the "can not log in to admin on localhost error " using Chrome so I switched to Firefox Once logged in to admin, I turned on Debug mode I now have the latest version of Cubecart working on my computer and can finally access both storefront and admin!
