It occurs to me you may have some confusion about what TLS is - here's a link to an article that explains it well

and there are many ssl/tls checkers available online to see what your server is reporting -
lists several

I use this one alot

or this one with a bit more in depth  details.

Admin Panel
Design > content

turn off the unwanted items -  or deleted them if you think you will never, ever want them again


You can find version 1.1.7 files at the above location

Note:  there is the complete code  and one labeled upgrade only which is used when upgrading from 1.1.6.

on the screen shot of the admin panel -  look at the very bottom the version number should be there.

Or within that admin page -  look in System> logs > install/upgrade history -  your installation version should be listed there

I believe that dashboard is v 1.2.5 or earlier.

Which version are you seeking -  the dashboard was used on several different ones.

Documentations & Manuals / coupon description where shown
« on: December 07, 2017, 10:47:33 PM »
when making a coupon there is a coupon description field - according to the manual it is suppose to appear on the storefront.  Where exactly is this suppose to show up?  I am unable to find it except with the admin panel for coupons.  The Coupon Name field is what is displayed on the checkout page.

From the manual Name: Enter a name of a new Coupon
Coupon Description: descriptive text you want to appear on the storefront

Shipping Modules / Re: purolator and dropshipping

global for commercial shippers, like Purolator, FedEx, etc.  that use a rate lookup API.

With drop shippers you just need to set your origin city, and origin zip/postal code to the one where your product is actually shipping from.  This does not use the drop shippers rates - but does the lookup based on the information within the shipper extension.  You would need to offer only the same level of service that the drop shipper uses eg.  if drop shipper does not allow for express shipping,  then you should not enable that service within the shipping extensions on your cart.

AbanteCart has changed where they have located their documentation -  try the above link for more info

General Support / Re: global attribute/product option issues
« on: November 20, 2017, 02:24:39 PM »
please review the docs about global options , with parent/ child attributes

the section you need is towards the bottom of the documentation
This should help you get it right.

First off,  is your PayPal account a business account rather than a personal one?  If it is,  then you should check with PayPal to see if your country is able to accept credit cards.   If it isn't you need to upgrade to a business account,  or make a new business account -  you can have both a personal and business account,  but they cannot have the same email address.

To the best of my knowledge,  all levels of business accounts have an option showing in the lower level of the checkout screen to use a credit card without having or making a PayPal account.  But I think there may be some issues with some countries due to a high level of credit card fraud in the location.

Hope this helps you a bit.

AbanteCart v2.0 / Re: Started 2.0 development
« on: October 24, 2017, 04:51:14 PM »
2.0 suggestion:

 How default extensions are deployed:  a different mechanism for obtaining and installing the core default extensions should be consider for the 2.0 versions.

Examples of current issues:
In the case of extensions like FedEx, Stripe, etc.  the APIs can have changes enacted by the companies that render the current version non-functioning.
Although we all like to think our coding is infallible, at times it is not and there needs to be a fix to an existing extension, again the current default version is non-functioning.
Default versions within the Admin panel have no easy way to update to a working version.  Having to wait until a new version of AbanteCart is released may not be quick enough or Admin may not wish to update at the moment.

Expecting novice users to understand how to pick a code line from GitHub and fix and existing file is often overwhelming.
Expecting AbanteCart users to always update to the latest cart version to get a working default extension is also overreaching.
Proposed Solution:
Core extensions deployed and available within the marketplace with a free price still. Also consider having updated API versions (FedEx, Stripe)  the work for several AbanteCart versions.  Perhaps a core/default section in the marketplace? 

Thanks for reading,  and hopefully considering a different way of handling default extensions.

did you see this one?  says it works up to 1.2.10  so if you are running 1.2.11  you should contact the developer of this extension prior to buying.

You also could just add each article as a content page -  and then under your category just add the title and the page link.

eg,  Category  Articles
Description  could look like this:

2017 January
       Making Your First Million (linked to the article URL)
       Spending Your First Million  (linked to the article URL)

2017 February
       Finding my Second Million

On your Category page edit -  you have the ability to add lots of words in the description field.  Also,  you alter the layout if desired.

If you are proficient with databases you can build your first one completely out  and then look at the database table(s)
and replicate. 

If you are not proficient you will create a huge mess to fix.  :)

the banner is part of the core AbanteCart coding.   Look at the above link to see how an out of the box site also has the same features.

And here is the docs for the how-to
