  1. My solution was to remove the registration page link from my skin and form fields within the registration page. I only have the the option to create an account on the checkout, therefore users and spammers will need to place an order to create an account, genuine users will do so but the spammers wont proceed. Has worked well for me for 2 years, no fake accounts created. I believe they create fake accounts so your shop sends registration emails or password resets to their targets & used to spam people and will give your store/email a bad reputation, some users may report these emails as spam and accounts like google mail will auto junk any future mail you send or your report your site to your hosting provider for sending spam.
  2. My work around is once the address is entered go to another tab ie overview is the one I use then click either the "save" or "Save and reload" button then it seems to skip this check quick and easy also found this for registered customers sometimes its missing and this is my work around.
  3. Hi Noodleman, I was just being nosey seeing the colour scheme on the pervious comment and found that when a product was added to basket the ajax worked on the product page I was on but then when I navigated to the basket I had a message that the basket was empty? I'm was using IE 11 just thought I should let you know so you can check/investigate. Ian
  4. I had options for size and colour (two selection boxes), I tried to put them all under one option of size/colour (one selection box) removing the two separate size and colour and created a new combined one such as:- size/colour :- small orange shirt small blue shirt small green shirt medium orange shirt medium blue shirt medium green shirt "What is actually wanted is to hide the option combinations that are out. The "Hide out of stock items" is set to hide any item that has zero stock levels for that item -- meaning there are no items available for any option combination." - I thought that was what the option in the control panel did dashboard>> settings >> Hide out of stock products (Green tick) or does that hide the whole product once all options are zero? Estelle (3rd party mod) had a mod that worked really well on option stock levels for CC4, can something similar be created into the core code for CC5??
  5. If a product has different options and some of the options are zero stock they are still showing in the front office for customers to select. I have many options and currently have low stock on many and customers are guessing what's available and asking me what I actually have in stock or maybe they are giving up and shopping elsewhere. I need a option to hide these out of stock options so customers can only select what's in stock. To replicate On the dashboard>> settings Hide out of stock products is selected (Green tick) Add product options with some out of stock. log out as admin and clear history All possible options are shown in front office.
  6. SOLVED:- I have just worked out you have to make the edit direct in the database. 1. Using phpMyAdmin find table Cubecart_lang_string 2. Find string ID 513 3. click browse tab and click the pencil then add:- %s <%s> wrote to %s: --------------- %s --------------- this will make the emails work again. Note I have removed the text I wanted and will add a signature. Note:- using the languages edit in the admin will otherwise break it
  7. I see this is an old post however the problem still seems present in the latest 5.2.8. I have just tried to remove the text "This email is sent from the stores master email address but it is possible to reply directly to the sender using the reply button on your email software" from admin in languages > contact. I'm now received the email formatted as Ben224 stated "joe blogsTestName wrote to [email protected]: --------------- Dept --------------- This email is sent from the stores master email address but it is possible to reply directly to the sender using the reply button on your email software." I have opened the copy of /languages/definitions.xml using notepad++ and strangely as you scroll down the colouring of the text of the .xml file is nicly colour coded Blue, Red, Purple Orange until you get to line 669 where the file then goes all black indicating to me something is wrong and this it the same line that relates to the email content that was edited " <string name="email_content" introduced="5.0.0"><![CDATA[%s <%s> wrote to %s: --------------- %s --------------- This email is sent from the stores master email address but it is possible to reply directly to the sender using the reply button on your email software.]]></string>" try opening the /languages/definitions.xml in notepad++ to see line 669 and onwards it appears to be something with the <%s> and then when you hit the save it then removes the <%s> I have also noticed on my store and the demo store that if you revert the code back using the icon on the right hand side it inserts the <%s> but when you hit save it then removes it again. if this file is saved in the database somewhere, maybe I need to find where its stored and manually add the <%s>??
  8. Hi bsmither, Many thanks for your qucik reply I have managed to get it working successfully with your massive help on my test site. I will now implement it on my live site and hoping it will reduce the spam. your correct with the bots getting smarter and reading the text but i dont have any form of caprure at present so this should help. I have added the steps I took below:- Added owncode between </fieldset> and <div> to lines 192 and 193 open:- skins/mican/templates/content.product.php 191 </fieldset> 192 <img src="capture_image.jpg"> 193 <input type="text" name="code" /> 194 <div> save and close open:- /classes/cubecart.class.php find and replace find lines 2186 to 2189 if ($GLOBALS['config']->get('config','recaptcha') && !$GLOBALS ['session']->isEmpty('error', 'recaptcha')) { $GLOBALS['gui']->setError($GLOBALS['session']->get ('error', 'recaptcha')); $error = true; } replace with:- if (strtolower($_POST['code']) != '1234567') {die('Wrong access code, please use your browsers back button to try again. ');} replace 1234567 with your own code from your capture_image.jpg The only bug is that the capture will still show when a registered customer is logged in. However it will not function when and a registered customer can leave blank, fill randon rubbish and the review will still submit, howver this isnt a problem for me as resgistered customers are unlikly to sumbit spam.
  9. I have tried been trying to figure what happens after the write review is submitted but no joy in locating the process. I'm trying to add my own simple capture to stop spam (I find built in capture hard to read). I have a contact form online which uses the below method and has been online for a few months with no spam, so I'm hoping this may work for my cubecart reviews. I'm no coder so I play about till something works or break's but cant get my head around this issue. The current contact form I want to use the code from works as follows:- I have a standaed HTML page which goes to a .php page when submitted for a thankyou note for the submission and to process a email of the completed form. Im hoping to add the following code in the review page ( from my contact form html page). <img src="capture_image.jpg"> <input type="text" name="code" /> The capture_image.jpg will be have a image of say 12344567 for this example then after the review is submitted im hoping to add the following code in the review processing page. if (strtolower($_POST['code']) != '1234567') {die('Wrong access code, please use your browsers back button to try again. ');} I just cant locate where the review code is processed to play about with this code. I think it works well on my contactform as it seems all my spam is robots and think they get stuck on the blank die page saying to use the back button, I guess the spambots think that they have succeeded and move on at this point. Just hoping I can work this out as the spammers are getting annoying now
  10. AL, I think your deny from all will cause issues printing invoices if you don't allow your own external IP address in the .htaccess file, Reason being is I added the .htacces file to the files folder and when I tried to print an order with the printer icon I wasn't allowed to view the invoice and found the invoice was temporally put in the /files folder where the .htaccess file is not allowing me to view the invoice.
  11. Are digital downloads meant to be secure allowing only the purchased customer to access them? or are they available to download via anybody that knows the link? I have found the latter true. To reproduce 1. upload a file http://demo.cubecart.com/cc5/admin.php?_g=filemanager&mode=digital#upload 2. note the file name and log out of admin delete browser history. 3. Go to http://demo.cubecart.com/cc5/files/name_of_file.ext 4. File opens. Does this means a customer can share a download link, making it insecure to sell digital files or they can have a guess at other files that maybe in the files folder by using sequential numbering?
  12. when cliking on the customers online IP address it always shows your own external IP address and doesn't give any information about the clicked IP address of the customer. http://demo.cubecart.com/cc5/admin.php?_g=statistics#stats_online
  13. when looking at my stats I found pages were being viewed as https:// and not http:// as my site doesn't have a SSL certificate this displayed a certificate error and possibly loosing customers trust. I visited my site many times and not seen the problem but today I found the navigation bar was delivering/linking to https:// pages. I checked the SSL tab and both Enable SSL, and force SSL mode on all pages were both set to no. If anyone has same problem I fixed this by going to the dashboard > Settings > SSL and entering the SSL Store URL from https://www.yourdomain.co.uk to just http://www.yourdomian.co.uk removing the "s"
  14. Just tried to add a customer with an address and was again unsuccessful this is definably a bug, Is there instructions on how to add a customer with an postal address in CC5.2.8 Why did I downgrade my store from CC4 to CC5.2.8 . CC5 is very buggy.
  15. 1. on the tab "add customer " create a new customer. http://demo.cubecart.com/cc5/admin.php?_g=customers&action=add 3. fill out basic details in genral. 4 click save 5. click on address tab then add address. 6. click save and the address doesn't appear. may only show customer name if lucky I had a little play about and tried this method below that did work - although not very intuitive. 1. on the tab "add customer " create a new customer. http://demo.cubecart.com/cc5/admin.php?_g=customers&action=add fill out customer info then click address "DONT CLICK SAVE" 2. go to address tab and add address 3. Then save and it works. Maybe if adding a new account/customer in the admin area you should be notified to add a address before the save button is hit on the 1st page
  16. I just had to add a password to the new customer in admin then go into the front office as the customer to add there home and postal address and it shows on in back office, this should have been working to do via admin side.
  17. As title you can add a customer but not an address for the new customer in admin on version 5.2.8
  18. hmm just noticed this post on the 7th March looks like others have the same/similar problem
  19. I don't have the solution but I have the same issue with my store cc4.4.3 on 2 stores on 2 servers I noticed the problem in August 2010, every email has stopped i.e. reviews, order notification, password resets, contact form (estells mod) which is a pain. My bodges fixes are:- I have over come the contact form using a different contact form on the same server and using iframe tags to add it to the contact us page. Order notifications I rely on the Paypal payment received email to inform me of a new order. I suspect the reason for me/us is that the ISP's may have blacklisted cubecart script as the Tell a fried had a spam bot using it and sending thousands of messages a day (checked "post" in log file) I wonder if this maybe the case?? I never perused the issue as couldn't be bothered. Would be nice for a fix or to confirm if the script kiddy has caused the ISP's to stop CC mail Also it looks like Cube cart bug tracker isn't sending out emails as I tried to register but no email to ativate account arrived, I was going to post this on the bug tracker on your ticket.
