Support / adding quantity to cart.. more than is available
« on: August 14, 2017, 06:25:43 AM »
Just wondering if there is a setting somewhere that I'm missing.
On my product page under the description it tells me I have 1 available, but it quite happily allows me to put more than that number into the quantity box and to click "add to cart".
Then it shows me the shopping cart page and tells me that the quantity I want is not available.

Is there a setting somewhere than will check available quantity ( as displayed on the product page) against the quantity requested when I click "add to cart" ?.

Thanks in advance

Hi Folks
I'm trying to install abantecart to my hosting server (vidahost).
I get the main screen displayed, where I have to tick to accept the license condition and click continue, but when I do, the screen stays blank.
I've looked in errors.txt and all that in there is a warning that....
AbanteCart core v.1.2 cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started ..... public_html/abantecart/system.config.php:2) in ..... public_html/abantecart/core./helper/utils.php on line 1198

line 1198 of utils.php says ..
1196 function redirect($url){
1197   if(!$url){ return false; }
1198   header('Location: ' . str_replace('&', '&', $url));
1199   exit;

Anyone got any pointers ?
I've read up on the problem and there are a lot of replies about checking for whitespace, but I've already installed this on my localhost (uniserver) without any problems, so really am at a loss to understand why its not working with vidahost.

...ok update !
After searching online I added ob_start(); to core/helper/utils.php
The installation completed without a problem...I expected to see some output error message, but nothing !
Just to make sure I hadnt messed up, I took out the ob_start line, tried to install and again.. blank page with the complaint about headers.
Put ob_start back in again, installs fine without issue.
Now I am totally confused !

Documentations & Manuals / Need detailed info on import fields
« on: December 19, 2014, 04:33:08 PM »
I've installed abantecart onto a test server and want to copy my live Magento products to abantecart.

Is there a document that will tell me what each import field is / what the values are..

I've created a few products in AbanteCart and exported them so I can see what needs to go where, but things like this....


Could really do with knowing what all that means :-)


Version 1.2  fresh install....
Go into back office and try to start customising currency etc, (nearly) every time I select something, I'm bounced back to the admin login screen, have to click login, then I'm taken to the page I was working on..
Have uninstalled, reinstalled, cleared cookies, cleared cache... nothing helps !
Confused (and starting to get annoyed !).

Any advice gratefully received..

General Support / Homepage Banner Block is messed up !
« on: December 18, 2014, 05:27:18 PM »
I've just installed the latest abantecart and the banner block on the homepage is "split"
I've done nothing apart from install it.
Havent seen any other people mentioning so it must be something my side, but as I say, all I've done is install it !
Any thoughts ?

Support / Also viewed or customer also looked at ....
« on: July 22, 2014, 05:48:47 AM »
I cant seem to find a "Also viewed" block.
I would like to show, on the product page the items that the customer last looked at.
Also is there a "Customer also looked at..." block ?, that would be useful so customers could see what items other customers looked at.
Are these available in Abantecart or maybe they're called something different ?

Support / Global attributes - size and colour
« on: April 25, 2014, 06:59:25 AM »
I've created a product and am using global attributes.
I've create a parent, with 2 child attributes, one being size and the other colour.
The size attribute has 4 size and the colour attributes has 4 colours.
When I view the product on the front end, I just see one drop down box which shows a long list with the following...
Small / Black
Small / White
Small / Red
Small / Green
Medium / Black
Medium / White
etc etc etc

What I want to see is two drop down boxes, one for size and one for colour so the customer can choose that way.

Am I setting it up wrong, or is this how it works in Abantecart ?

Support / Product combinations
« on: April 18, 2014, 12:36:00 PM »
Hi Folks,
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong ?
I've created a parent attribute called SandC and created 2 child attributes SSSS and CCCC
Ive populated the SSSS attribute with Small and Large and populated CCCC with Black and White

I've then created a product, added the SandC option
Changed the option values using the dropdown to get the values I want
Up to here... fine. (see pic6.jpg)
YET, as soon as I click save
It changes to .. well... have a look at pic7 !
The values disappear.
I've tried it quite a few times, uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times but getting the same results.
Its version 1.1.8 installed via softalucous
Any thoughts anyone ?

Support / Validation of fields when creating a product
« on: April 11, 2014, 05:50:19 AM »
I'm able to create a product by just entering one character in the Product Name field and nothing else in any other field. Is that right ?
There appears to be no checking on SKU or MODEL !


Support / Model or SKU ??
« on: April 09, 2014, 10:54:05 AM »
Can anyone tell me why the order_products table holds MODEL but not SKU ??

I'm extracting order information to feed into my standalone inventory system, which is keyed on SKU.

I'd have thought SKU would have been better to store than Model.

(apologies for all the posts with questions)

Support / add new product price includes tax
« on: April 09, 2014, 05:23:41 AM »
It looks like when I add a new product, the price I enter is assumed to be excluding tax.
Is there a setting somewhere, so the price I enter actually includes tax ?

I'm having to sit here with a calculator and work out the excluding tax price every time I add a product.
It would be a lot easier, just to enter the price I want to charge the customer.

General Support / breadcrumbs not complete ?
« on: April 06, 2014, 11:29:23 AM »
I've just installed Abantecart and must say.. I love it !.
We have magento as our production system but am always looking for something "easier" and prettier, and this certainly is both !.

Question about breadcrumbs...
I have set up some categories
Main cat (as shown on the menu bar)
... sub1
... ... sub1a
... ... ... product 1
... ... ... product 2

When I drill down to product 1 the breadcrumbs show "home > sub1a" when I click on the product, breadcrumbs become "home > sub1a > product1"

I'd have expected to see "home > main cat > sub1 > sub1a"

Once you've hit the product you can only breadcrumb to the category the product is in, not up to previous categories.
Have I missed a setting somewhere ?
