    2) That could be accomplished using CubeCart and simply needs a custom skin. The concept of having everything full width is a good one and much more modern and is something we started to do with our Retail Therapy skin (which currently just has a full width slideshow section) and the next release will have be full width by default with the current layout as an "old style" sub-theme.  However, most of that example site could be done now with that skin plus two of our plugins (Multiple Homepage Documents and Manage Site Document Location)


    I understand linking back and forth between the subdomains for CC and WP.

    Custom CC skins are unfortunately beyond my capabilities. However, you mentioned possibly a full width layout which is exactly what I am hoping for. When do you expect that to be released? And I will look into the plugins you mentioned. Thanks!

    I hate the idea of leaving CC to go to something like woocommerce and a WP site simply because of skinning capabilities!

    Do you have a demo of the retail therapy skin? The listing for it doesn't have a demo link or anything. Also, the plugins you mentioned, their demo links aren't working.

  2. I love Cubecart and have used it for many years.

    I am in the process of starting up a new business/site but I am hoping to have more site integration. I am looking for the best CMS or HTML design that will integrate nicely with Cubecart. Is Wordpress the best thing to use for this? I do not intend on modifying the site much at all, but need something that is easy to modify if necessary. Here is an example of what I am trying to accomplish....


    I like how everything is there on the frontpage. I do not know what cart they're using, or whether or not it's wordpress etc.

    Is Cubecart capable of this? I have tried everything under the sun and I can't get my cart to look like this.

    Ensure that you force https in your .htaccess file or better still ask your hosting company to enable HSTS

    Check to make sure you dont have any hard-coded urls that start http:// as that will cause the page to be insecure due to mixed content.  Hard coding in skin template files and documents are the normal culprits


    hosting company has me on a shared server, not sure how that would work. Is there a method I can use to force https in the htaccess? Is that the setting in the store settings to enable SSL?

  4. I have not upgraded my current store to the latest version of 6.1.7 yet because I had a lot of CSRF errors even though the site is not currently on an SSL url. I now have access to upgrade to SSL for the site. 

    My question is whether or not there is anything I should be aware of before enabling SSL on my site? Will this cause any issues in my store that I need to be aware of? I am not sure I can undo my SSL upgrade once it is done. However, I do not want to be without the latest and greatest cubecart versions! 

    Any advice will be helpful!

    Did you do your current upgrade manually or via Admin?

    Do you have a backup of your previous CC and database version?

    I did a manual upgrade, my Admin upgrade now button does not work. Hasn't worked for a long time.

    I do have previous version backup of CC and database. As well as a manual download of all the store files. I download them before every upgrade just in case.

    I had the same issue initially which seems to have been caused by the page being cached and thus not including the CSRF token. The token is added via JavaScript so you have to force the page to redownload the latest JS.

    To do so, clear your browser cache and force-reload the page via Ctrl-F5 (if you are on a Windows machine).

    Hope that works for you as it did for me.

    Cleared cache, tried multiple browsers and even computers, CSRF error on all. Cleared cache, reset java, no change.

    Your renamed admin directory and admin file should not get renamed if you had followed the instructions ?

    Did follow your instructions. Had removed the old standard admin folder and admin.php file before doing the manual install. But... remember the manual install had to be done because the automated upgrade process didn't work either. May be related?

  7. I am currently downloading everything as a hard backup at the moment via FTP. I will try the manual upload, but for the record there is nothing in the error logs regarding the failure of the upgrade.

    With the new admin security, do I need to tell the system where to find the admin folder, or edit any includes files?

  8. Trying to upgrade to the latest version (6.1.5) from the previous version of v6.1.4. When I go to "Upgrade Now" and  click on it, the page starts its thinking and then results in a blank screen. If I hit the back button or go back to the main store admin link, nothing has changed. In the past if this has happened, it would take me to the install upgrade screen. However, this is no longer the case. I am unable to automate the upgrade process.

    I do not want to continue if this is a potential problem/issue in the making. Can't risk it regardless of having file and database backups.

    Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated!

  9. This may sound suspicious, but it's with good purpose. I sell items sometimes out of the store, but still process the invoices and such through the store manually. Quite often I get testimonials and reviews via email or over the phone. Is there a way an admin can add a testimonial or review to a product within the admin control panel? I only see the ability to edit/delete.


  10. So, I have been in a very niche market with my online store. It's done very well, but my methods of obtaining my inventory or very specific to that niche.

    I am looking to actually start another store more geared for the general public. I am looking into more of a retail type store that's not so niche. I eventually would like to have a physical store front, but that is some years away. My question is how does one obtain popular brands and inventory? Let's use lawn mowers as a product example. How does one go about getting lawn mowers as their inventory? There are so many manufacturers of lawn mowers out there. Do you go directly to the manufacturer? Do you have to find a wholesaler/distributor?

    I am having a hard time finding out who I need to look into to get the inventory? I don't want to sell just one brand of anything.

    Any help would be appreciated. I started with the niche market because it was easier to find suppliers, but with more general markets it seems much harder to get a foothold.

  11. My hosting service has announced they're going from PHP 5.5 to 7.0

    I may have missed it in my searches, but I want to make sure the latest version of CC is compatible with PHP7. 

    Thanks for the info!


    EDIT: I see mixed responses from July about working with php7. There is nothing special I need to do when upgrading my PHP, correct??

  12. I do not see the subfolder in the .htaccess file. This is why I was concerned and I am also getting an error now when trying to use the backup utility in the admin.

    Backup is failing and it's sending me to a 404 page - page not found that is essentially in my store front, it's not bouncing back to the admin page at all.

  13. Hello,

    Just looking to see what everyone does for their record keeping processes. Currently, I have to manually input my sales in to Quickbooks and am looking for a better way! I then print out the invoice from the cubecart store and place that into a folder for a hard copy. I see a lot of people don't even keep their orders in the system. I am just looking to see if there is a way to streamline this process, it's very time consuming and wasteful as far as ink/paper goes!

  14. Bsmither, I can't seem to find a plugin that does this, am I overlooking it?

    The boxes may need to be modified to fit the placements sizes, they're not all standard. I would like to check out the plugin to see if it will work.

    Amazon gives me an html code to place into the area in which I want the ad to show, if this plugin allows for this, it might be what I need!
