I can't get into maintenance mode .
« on: January 08, 2017, 11:02:37 AM »
I feel like an idiot but I know I am not.  I have a domain with Doteasy and  have installed AbanteCart cart with softaculous.  I can see the demo page ok, but I can not figure out how to edit the page and select Paypal for a payment method.  I could probably figure the maintenance mode, but I can't find it. I have spent 2 days pulling my hair out, and every time I go to a different module it wants my login name and password , and then it says it is wrong.    AYYYYYYYY!
It is so hard to keep track of all those different passwords, for different pages, Lastpass for a couple of years.
I could use some advice.  It drives me crazy when the instructions say how simple it is, and yet I can't do it.  Aso even when I get the cart working properly, how do I link it to my main pages?
thanks
Michael b

Honestly, I do not understand your question/issue. How maintenance mode is related to payment page?
If standard settings for payment do not cover what you need, and you still need to edit payment selection page, you need to know PHP. The controller is in here: public_html/storefront/controller/pages/checkout/payment.php

There are no different passwords for different pages. You only need to deal with admin u/p and one test customer account. Again, I might not be clear with what you try to do.

I wonder what version do you use. For me on 1.2.9, maintenance mode works correctly, if I click the link to SF from admin (top right corner)

i am using ver. 1.2.9 as well

i have it working now, i just toggled it off and on, cleared cookies each time and now it is functioning properly

thanks for the reply!

edit to add:
well it worked once and only once,
now it is back to just displaying the maintenance page

tried clearing cookies, internal abantecart cache, different browsers to no avail

but since it did work once, there must be a fix, but i can't find it

It is same for me too since the beginning. I thought maybe that's the way it is designed to work.

If maintenance mode is on and I click on the arrow in admin panel in top-right corner to go to the StoreFront, the main page loads normally, but when I click on any product or any other page , I get the maintenance mode message and I can;t go anywhere else.

I thought it is designed that way, that we can only see the homepage and nothing else even when logged in as admin.

hey rey,
i checked the documentation and it is supposed to allow the admin to see the site and visitors to see the maintenance page

at least i am not alone in this

i wonder what would cause this anomaly?

I wonder if any of you guys clears cookies or session. This mode is working because of cookie and session.

I can perfectly navigate anything in the storefront in the maintenance mode clicking of admin. Even act on behalf of customer works in the maintenance mode for me.

Yes, I have to clear cookies and sessions each time.
It works for a few times and then back to the maintenance notice even when logged in as admin.
I gave up after a while and turn maintenance on and off each time I need to see some change. It has become a habit now, I ain't even mad.  ::)

Hello. Do you have default setting in the browsers especially cookies and session related?
Also what is your antivirus/firewall? Can you try another PC?

Ah, great! Can't wait to see this fixed finally. :D

P.S. In the first screenshot on the bug tracker page on github, the domain name is still visible on the tab, you might want to blur it.
