I'm dredging this topic back up to the top, as it appears it was never implemented.

Given the height/length of the product edit page, having the Save/Cancel buttons at the top of the page in addition to the bottom of the page is a necessity.

Can this be manually changed easily, or is it too involved of a change?

Thank you.

EDIT: I figured it out, thanks.

Solved. Thank you.

Could you please tell me which .tpl file is the one to edit for the "general" data entry section for products? I can't make heads or tails out of all the physical files and when I search for control names shown in source, I come up empty.

Thank you.

In an effort to streamline data entry and product creation, I would like to either hide or move to the bottom of the page, those fields that I do not plan to move.

Are there any recommended best practices in this regard? I assume the only way to do this is to edit the code in one of the .tpl files. Is that correct?

Thank you.

FYI, this is a thread from 1.5 years ago. No need to bring the issue up again, IMO.

My first thought when I saw this in my unread posts list was that the forum was being moved and that content would be lost, and I got several posts in before seeing the date.

Please don't bump ancient threads just for the sake of doing so.

I would prefer to hide with CSS rather than editing the .tpl file, but I cannot figure out which div or span to hide, since it only appears on hover and I can't use the browser element viewer to see which element it is.


Is there an easy way to disable/hide the white "View" band with an i icon that shows up any time you hover over an image on a category page or home page? It's distracting and completely unneccessary, since clicking on the thumbnail image opens the listing page anyway.

Thank you.

Given the sweeping EU requirements, my assumption was that this functionality would be included in AbanteCart Cart off the shelf, not a paid marketplace plugin.

Also, the screenshots do not show the cookie opt-in functionality for the storefront when people visit the store for the first time, only in-account data after they have created an account. Can we see what that functionality looks like before purchase?

New Features Discussion / GDPR Opt-in popup?

Are there any plans to create a GDPR cookie/personal data opt-in popup functionality for AbanteCart? It's 12 days until GDPR goes into effect, and I'm surprised that there's no discussion anywhere on this forum, given the number of EU-based participants here.


I couldn't figure out how to do this in the admin: How do I get cumulative cost and price (worth) totals across the entire product catalog? It seems that some sort of inventory reporting mechanism would be useful, including category subtotals. For example, if you wanted to see how much the items in Category X cost you or what the asking price was for all items in Category Y.

Thank you.

That's the workaround I've been doing. Hopefully a persistent add products button can be part of the next UI.

I wasn't sure which category to post this in, as it could be support, a new feature request, or a customization issue.

This is more of an interface streamlining question.

When I have added a new product and have made my way through the tabs for that product and I'm ready to move on and add another product, I am forced to go back out to the product catalog list page because that is the only place the "+" button to add a new product lives.

Being forced to jump back out to the product listings page is an unnecessary extra step. What would be very helpful would be to have that blue "+" button to add a new product be visible within the individual product interface, regardless of which tab I was currently on, so when I'm ready to move on to the next product, I can do it from there.

Or if there were a way to have the "+" button also exist outside the product interface. For example, the icon row at the very top of the screen, is there any reason that one of the icons there couldn't be to add a new product? It would save time when working on the inventory.

Is there an easy way to accomplish this?

Thank you.

Bumping this thread, since I didn't get a reply to my last response. Thanks.

I have the vast majority of the domains I own on a VPS, but for the purposes of this ecommerce project I wanted to get something separate. Since I initially wasn't sure which cart system I wanted to go with, I wanted a package that included Softaculous, so I could install, customize, backup, uninstall, reinstall, and experiment with different carts (AbanteCart, Prestashop, Cubecart, Open Cart, Magento, OSCommerce, etc.).

My other requirements were SSD, allocated RAM, a decent amount of diskspace and bandwidth, free SSL, and SSH access to be able to tweak without having to do everything via sFTP.

After doing a fair amount of research at and testing sales responsiveness and technical acumen prior to making a choice, I opted for HostRush. I signed up for their "Rush-1" package at $23.99 per year, pricing locked in moving forward. It has all the features on my wantlist (24GB SSD, 1.5GB allocated RAM, unlimited bandwidth).

I haven't gone public with my storefront, so I cannot speak as to the performance under traffic, but I installed and uninstalled probably a half dozen ecommerce installations in my experimentation and have encountered no performance issues. Everything has been spritely and nimble. No outages (that I'm aware of at any rate) thus far.
