Customization help / Max characters text box
« on: December 22, 2016, 11:24:37 AM »
Hi Guys

A couple of product which we offer on our site have an option to add engraving.

At the moment I have a textbox on the product page where the customer can enter the message that they want to have engraved.

Does anyone know of a way to limit the characters which can be entered - for example:
Max 20 characters with the 20 displayed and counting down as characters are entered - I'm sure you've seen the sort of thing I'm talking about.

Shipping Modules / Royal mail
« on: December 20, 2016, 07:46:30 AM »
Hi Guys

I have just enabled the default Royal Mail shipping extension and it is working great. I put a product in the cart go to checkout and there is a drop down list with the available options. However, whichever option I select, it doesn't actually add the amount to the total - just get sub total, then shipping remains at zero, then total equals the sub total.

Anyone got any idea why please

Extensions and Add-Ons / MailChimp
« on: December 14, 2016, 12:24:42 PM »

Does anyone know if the Mailchimp extension works on V1.2.8. It says 1.2 so I'm guessing not but just wondering if anyone is using it successfully?

Templates / Banners
« on: December 13, 2016, 10:46:43 AM »

I am using V1.2.8 with the default template and I have a couple of problems with the banners in Banner Manager.

1. I believe that the graphic banners are only displayed on mobile devices. So I set up 2 graphic banners to be Main page banners and set the sort orders to 1 & 2. However, only one shows up when I view the home page and it never changes/slides to the 2nd one. Is there an additional setting that I am missing to enable multiple graphic banners.

2. The default template is responsive but the text banners are not. For example, when I view the home page on an iPad in landscape, the banner shows up fine but if I rotate the iPad to portrait the banner resizes and the text covers the product image. Is there a way to fix this because if not the only other option I can think of is to use images with the text already on and link the whole image instead of just the button.

Customization help / Related products
« on: December 12, 2016, 07:15:23 AM »

I am using Version 1.2.8 and was looking at changing to a template which had a "Related products" tab - the default one doesn't seem to have this feature. Unfortunately, most of the available templates are not compatible with the latest version of the cart and I don't particularly like the ones that are.

So, I was going to get the Foxy customisation theme which looks like it offers pretty simple customisation.

The questions are then:

1 - what is the general opinion on using this customisation theme? 

2 - Is it possible to add a "related products" tab and if so how easy is it and how do I go about it?

This is an edit - just realised that I can easily add related products - sorry for the confusion, I'm new with this cart. I would have deleted this post but couldn't see a way of doing it.

I would still be interested in oppinions on the Foxy template though :)


Installation and Configuration / Disabled Countries still show in cart
« on: December 08, 2016, 12:29:37 PM »

Another question.

I have disabled a stack of countries as I only want to allow shipping to the UK, Europe and the US. However, when I place an item in the cart all countries are still in the drop down menu as an option.

Not only is this not what I wanted or was expecting but it actually causes the checkout to break. I am using (trying to use) weight based shipping which works fine but only on 3 countries - France, Uk & USA - if I select one of those 3 options at checkout I then have to pick a zone before the shipping cost is calculated and added. If I pick a country other than those 3 then the cart effectively crashes by putting no price either for the shipping or the product. If I then go back to the UK option for example, it still doesn't show any prices. The only way to fix it is to click the update cart button.

This is obviously not good and presents a double problem - too many countries in the drop down and a crash if the wrong one is selected.

Does anyone know how to fix this please?

Installation and Configuration / Weight Based Shipping - countries
« on: December 08, 2016, 10:17:51 AM »

I have recently installed Abantecart and am in the process of configuring it.

I installed the Weight Based Shipping extension and it works great - except - I can only seem to install 3 countries. So far I have France, UK and USA - I want to add options for the whole of the European Union.

Is it possible to do this or can I only have three countries?
