  1. https://fetchify.com/docs/eol/plugins-and-extensions.html#dates says that they have already stopped "selling" the cubecart plugin and will stop supporting it next July. They don't say why. Is there a viable alternative?
  2. I have installed this (on 6.2.5) and when I click the button, nothing happens. The page refreshes. That's all. Where should I look for clues about what went wrong?
  3. bsmithers solution works brilliantly for me. My only regret is that it took me so long to thank him for this. I can't see any reason why it shouldn't be there by default. Is there some down side to this functionality?
  4. I'm not sure whether this is the same requirement. I want to be able to see who bought products. I can get a report that lists orders, but doesn't say what they bought. I can get a list of best selling products, but it doesn't say who bought them. I can get a list of unsettled orders, but until I open each, there is no way to see what they bought. To get this information I have to go through the list of sales and click on each order in turn. Is this really not included in the base system?
  5. I decided not to bother. On reflection, I think I prefer v2 to invisible in any case. It's the internet equivalent of a cut-out figure of a policeman in the shop window.
  6. My own skin. And I think it was all done because I did it. However, it is possible that I missed some component. The fact that it works with v2 and it nearly works with Invisible, just giving an "unable to contact" error made me wonder if the outbound firewall needs an extra destination opened.
  7. Yes, it is all signed up for and set up for invisible reCAPTCHA (though that doesn't seem to stop v2 working) It uses the latest CC but not the Foundation theme. As far as I can make out, all the correct reCAPTCHA bits are in place. It is almost working. Just the failure to connect (which is pretty findamental!) It is at https://www.rosecottage.org.uk/shop
  8. I have recaptcha2 working just fine (it has never given a problem) but invisible recaptcha isn't working. The little reCAPTCHA icon appears at the botom right of the screen, but after a wait, an error message says "Cannot contact reCAPTCHA. Check your connection and try again." The outgoing firewall permits connections to www.google.com www.google.co.uk uploads.google.com www.gstatic.com, but maybe it tries to connect to somewhere else? Any ideas?
  9. I think you have brushed close past the answer. I don't want to use the html required because the CC way is more elegant. Is there an easy way to make CC require an additional field? I'll have a look at the border CSS declaration. I don't remember how or why it is like that. The phone type may not be in the spec, but it works! [later] I decided to take your advice about the required which works better than I had expected. Thanks very much. And I have switched the type="phone" to type="tel" although both do seem to work OK, getting it right is a good approach, really. No idea why there was an !important on line 278. It may be a hangover from a battle with Google Chrome's cacheing!
  10. I found a customer having problems with Stripe payment. It turned out that she had put her mobile number into the Mobile field and left the Phone field blank. And Stripe wanted a 'phone' number! I was puzzled how she had registered without an entry in the Phone field, which is required. When I tried to repeat this by leaving Phone blank and clicking Register I found that instead of a nice error message, I got a white screen 500 error. But nevertheless, the account was created, complete with a blank Phone field. For now, I've removed the Mobile field from the Register screen to reduce the chance of this happening, but the 500 error isn't right. How are missing required fields meant to be handled? The site in question is https://www.rosecottage.org.uk/shop Later: I had a bit of a twiddle about, fixed nothing, but now no 500 error. However, the Phone field still isn't being Required. You can leave it blank and still register. The other fields work just fine.
  11. So effectively, the preview shoots itself in the foot!
  12. I've added another version of this skin, which uses the same layout but a different look. You never know: someone may be interested one day!
  13. I've set up a demo store so people can look at the skin. Nothing in it, of course! However, the link to the demo from the marketplace doesn't seem to work. I think it is to do with opening an https page in a frame. https://www.iainharrison.co.uk does work, though.
  14. Sorry, I really don't understand how DVDs or Blu-Rays are any different from any other product. You put a picture, a description and a price in for any. Is there some specific feature that a CD needs that is any different? I have designed websites for record companies in the past and they never seemed to need anything specific.
  15. This is the first thing I've put onto the marketplace, so I'm not sure what is expected. What screenshots would be of use? Different pages? Tablet / Mobile views?
  16. There isn't a preview as such, because it was developed for a live site that is now ready but has no stock yet! That's why it is so cheap: this is an offshoot of a site development, not a money-making design. I am a little reluctant to publicise the site at present, because if anyone buys the test products, the payments will be taken, but the products will not be delivered! When the site actually opens for business, it will be different! Changing the colours is pretty easy: simply open custom.css in a text editor and search and replace the colour values you want. I did consider making a separate "colours" css file, but that would add another server fetch needed to render the page. The whole idea is to make it fast and efficient. Later: I've added a preview site. Later still: I've added a different version with a different look
  17. I look after quite a few ecommerce sites (mostly not using Cube Cart) and I have been watching the approach of these GDPR regulations with some scepticism. The cookie warning has mandatory for years, but that rule is mostly ignored. I don't see it as a data retention issue - customers may want to log in and see their order history for years ahead, so there is good reason to keep it. I find ebay's deletion after a couple of years very irritating: some things I buy less frequently than that. I think the issue will be the very occasional customer who will want to see a copy of what data is held about them, and possibly a small percentage of those will request deletion of their entire account record. My guess is that an SQL script for each is all that will be needed.
  18. OK, done. On the Marketplace at £5.
  19. I've just about finished the skin for my own use, but it will need some work to make it a little more generic. But I do plan to make a skinny skin available.
  20. Thanks for that. At least I'm not missing something obvious. This is an out-of-hours project with no budget. I'll just get rid of the Add to Cart buttons altogether. Don't really want people ordering without seeing product details anyway. An extra impulse sale is not worth the increased risk of a product return
  21. I'm looking for a slightly different approach. I want to simply not show a buy button for products that have options, other than mandatory ones with a single default value. Seems to me that the key is the line in content.category.php that says {if $product.ctrl_purchase && !$CATALOGUE_MODE} needs another && condition to indicate that this product has options. But I can't work out what that condition shuld be. Any ideas?
  22. Got Options sorted. The next stumbling block is reCAPTCHA "Looks like" it isn't suitable. What are the criteria and required resources to enable it? Huh! suddenly it is working. All I needed to do was have a coffee break!
  23. So an option set is just a template set of options that you can add as a bundle, but once added to a product they are just like any options you added individually?
  24. The discussion at the other end of that link ends with people being unable to explain option sets.
