On the bottom part...?

Well, what you are seeing is called the "Tour". It gets shown every time an administrator logs in -- for each who have logged in for three or fewer times.

If you, perhaps having logged in for more than three times, yet are seeing this, perhaps your CubeCart_admin_users database record has been disturbed.

Otherwise, there is a fault with respect to getting, analyzing, or determining if the Tour should be shown.

In admin, Administrators, Edit Administrator, there is a checkbox to "Prevent welcome tour on next login?".

The Tour is supposed to be a slide show in a popup (colorbox, actually, I think), but you are showing it above as if the content is there, but not being affected by the javascript that is supposed to control it.

(You should edit the post above to de-link the "NextX" links that point to your admin site.)

I think there isn't anything wrong with the admin skin, but please check something. In the admin skin template main.php, at the very end, add:


Then, when requesting a page, the browser will popup a window. (You may need to give the browser permission to do this, and then reload the page.)

Looking at the popup, scroll to $TOUR_AUTO_START. The Value will be "true" or "false".

Looking directly at the database using an external utility, look at CubeCart_admin_users, 'tour_shown' column. Does the column exist?

In admin, Store Settings, Advanced tab, enable debug mode and enter your local IP address in the text field that follows (www.showmyip.com).

Below the admin page will be a grey debug area. Find the SESSION:, '__admin_data' section, 'tour_shown' key. The value will be 1 or 0.
