Customization help / add a link from product to custom form
« on: August 24, 2017, 08:15:54 AM »
I have a product that is a special order item - set to "call to order" which directs the customer to our contact page. I'd like to change the "call to order" link to direct customer to a new custom form.

found this old thread:,4412.msg19286.html#msg19286
but wasn't resolved

Is there a way to do this?

Also, how would I add/load a custom response page/message once the form is submitted?
I've tried adding a new "Content" page. Added the link "thank-you" (with and without /) for the Forms Manager > "Success Page" and upon submitting the form get "The page you requested cannot be found."

even tried putting the full url path for "Success Page" https://...../thank-you

And because the thank you page is a "Content" page - i now have a link in my footer to this page. not desirable. Is there a way to create a new page that is doesn't show up as a link in the footer?

Clearly I'm missing something here - maybe many things :(


General Support / Re: Tax Rate by County (FL)
« on: August 17, 2017, 11:23:21 AM »
I have the same issue for tax rates based on county/zip codes in Ohio - with hundreds of zip codes.

I'm not an coder, but I imagine a table of zip codes/tax rates could be uploaded to the database? Assuming this is an option, would further coding be required? in other words once the tax zones are created how does the checkout process know to pull the tax into the cart based on the customers zip code?

BTW i'm using weight-based-shipping only.

Thanks in advance for any guidance

Seems to have resolved - after setting up USPS and PayPal extensions  :-[

General Support / Force agree to Return Policy at checkout not showing
« on: August 06, 2017, 05:58:20 PM »
Hi All -
Not sure if this is me - I think this was working at some point... ???

I have settings> Checkout> Checkout Terms: ON for Return Policy. The problem is at checkout text appears "By clicking Confirm Order, you accept and agree to all terms of Return Policy" at the top of the page (as opposed to down at the bottom near the "Confirm Order" button). It is correctly linked to the Return Policy page (popup) but there is no check box available to force customer agreement.  :o

Changing to other content options
disabling and creating new Return Policy page

BTW, agree to Privacy Policy with check box is working for customer: Account Terms when creating an account

Not sure where else to look at this point - thanks for any guidance

Customization help / Styling Dropdown cart

Moved the dropdown cart block to the right of the page - and the little triangle at the top of the dropdown is now misaligned (I know not a top priority :o) and would like to remove the little bugger if possible. Is this in a style sheet? See image below.

Thank you for that!

Would like to edit the text as well - need to remove "AND NEWSLETTER" and modify text below (see image).

the email option(s) are already ticked - and cannot be unticked

I found and edited im.xml as well as notification.xml. (were the only places a word search found) made the edits and uploaded to server - cleared cache - but text is still the same.

Apparently i can't insert the code as its being flagged as an external link - images attached...

thanks in advance for your help

Thank you for your response.

I've seen this on another storefront as well... I cant find the link in my history to show you unfortunately.

But here's the URL


General Support / white space under footer
« on: March 05, 2014, 10:32:35 PM »
I'm using AC 1.1.7
A white space (margin) appears below the footer (In Chrome +/- 0.25 inch; in IE almost 0.5 in)
I've examined the footer.tpl and don't see any likely suspects. When I use my browser to inspect the element I see this...

<p style="position: absolute !important; text-indent: -10000px !important; font-size:1px !important; margin:0; padding:0; height:1px;">
    <a style="margin:0; padding:0; height:1px; font-size:1px !important;" href="" title="Powered by Abantecart eCommerce Solution">Powered by Abantecart eCommerce Solution</a>

<a style="margin:0; padding:0; height:1px; font-size:1px !important;" href="" title="Powered by Abantecart eCommerce Solution">Powered by Abantecart eCommerce Solution</a>

How can I remove this margin?

Thanks in advance for your help

Template Support / Re: Text on sub-categories not centered under picture
« on: February 16, 2014, 11:37:41 AM »
Having similar problem with text not centered under Categories images. I made changes to category.tpl as suggested with no change in alignment. I am using V 1.1.7 and realize this fix may be intended for 1.1.8. If this indeed makes a difference can you suggest a fix for V 1.1.7

I noted in viewing my source code, a reference to... <li class="span3 align_center">

Your code references... <li class="span2 align_center">

So I  changed this reference also - but still no success.

link to original fix:

Much thanks for your help

Thank you for your prompt reply. I'm afraid you've already lost me :-[

this goes in a DIV on the pages you referenced?

Also, the code checks whether a customer is logged in - will it also display the customers name?

General Support / Show customer name after login

Using V 1.1.7
Revisiting an old post.
Original post:,1039.msg3954.html#msg3954

After logging in, I'd like to be able to have the customer's name appear in the header of every page. Something to the effect; Welcome "Customer Name."

The customers first name does appear on the customers account dashboard.

In... storefront/view/default_html5/template/pages/account/account.tpl
is the code... <span class="subtext"><?php echo $customer_name; ?></span>

In... storefront/controller/pages/account/account.php
is the code... $this->data['customer_name'] = $this->customer->getFirstName();

Would either of these work? The question is, now what? Is this a simple matter of creating a new block? If so what additional HTML/code is required?

I'm fairly novice so would appreciate if someone could walk me through this.

Many thanks in advance.
