Support / Re: Redirecting? URL Issue?
« on: April 20, 2019, 03:12:00 AM »
Thank you, I've just done that.
Will wait to see if it helps.

Just for interest, the error message in the log is as follows:

I decided to test this out a bit before comparing files as suggested.
The problem seems to be fixed after turning off a category and then turning it back on again.
Most bizarre!

Support / Redirecting? URL Issue?
« on: April 16, 2019, 10:56:52 AM »

I wonder if anyone knows why my site is up to... well...  >:(

Have a look at
Works fine.

Now test the categories. Most work fine.
Try the WORK/BUSINESS category and hover over a product - you will end  up with a URL of and a session ID.

Same happens with SPORT-SOCCER but not any other SPORT subcategories.

Once it has that URL, then all the category links etc all have that URL, where they were fine before with

Does anyone have a suggestion?

Built-in Features / Out of Stock Different Options?
« on: December 11, 2018, 07:52:54 AM »

I wondered if there is a way to have different options with products:

1. Standard products - I don't track stock so they never go "Out of Stock"

2. Custom products - may have 1 or 2 on hand otherwise they are made to order.

So if I track stock on option 2, then at the moment it blocks from ordering when stock is 0.
Otherwise if I change DFEAULT STOCK CHECKOUT to ON then it allows adding to shopping cart and a purchase, but there is no warning that this item is then being made up specially and may take a bit longer.

Any suggestions are welcome - I may just be missing something that makes this possible.

Thank you!

How-to questions / Moving Hosting Companies - BACKUP/RESTORE?
« on: November 24, 2018, 08:07:49 AM »

As per the subject, I am moving hosting companies for many reasons.
Anyway, I have read,426.0.html for help, but it isn't very comprehensive.

I'm pretty PC savvy but just need some guidelines.

1. I can't do a backup within Abantecart - all 3 steps fail
2. I can't do a backup from CPanel as the existing host doesn't have that option.

I have exported my database

I have made FTP file download of the existing installation.
I have a backup from Softaculous of the whole installation as a .tar.gz file

New installation done on the new host but I notice they are one version ahead of my existing one, i.e. the latest version.
Used Softaculous as with the existing host using same database name (well, it was tamsco_aban619 and it is now tjncoza_aban619 because the host changed that).
Does that make a difference?
Demo products, order and customers deleted but no edits to countries, taxes etc yet.

Now how should I proceed from this point?

All advice greatly appreciated!

Thank you, clears that up for me

How-to questions / Missing Link?
« on: July 26, 2018, 03:18:14 AM »
Please have a look at my work website

On the home page I have the SPECIALS | FEATURED | NEW PRODUCTS blocks showing.

Now I am wondering if the heading should be a link.
For example SPECIALS See Products On Sale is showing but there is no link to anywhere to see all products on special.

Is this normal or should there be a link?
If a link, why is it not working? I have SEO links on and working (see any product or category and it works.

Thank you for your help!

How-to questions / Re: Product price based on global attributes
« on: July 23, 2018, 04:11:34 AM »
Thank you. That would be great to have as option.
Have a look at Zencart, from what I remember it is an option they have.

How-to questions / Product price based on global attributes
« on: July 19, 2018, 06:24:22 AM »

Is there a trick to have a product price based on default global attributes? Example:

* Small size = $5.00
Medium = $6.00
Large = $7.00

* No = $0.00
Yes = $2.00

* is the default option.

So the actual product price is set to $0.00 and the two default options would add up to make a price.
On the main home page or even in the product page, it will show the price as $0.00 and not add the size price of $5.00.
It only shows on the product page under Total Price.

Any help would be great.
Thank you :-)

Built-in Features / Re: Multiple Product attributes setting
« on: July 12, 2018, 07:14:07 AM »

Same problem here.
I want to offer clients the following:


... and so on

I can list these options but if I include attribute images, then it will either show a picture of (for example) a gold medal or a picture of a red ribbon.

The only workaround is to have options as:

and so on.

Is there a way to have the global images show up with multiple images?
So a gold medal and underneath is a red ribbon?

.htaccess file is as follows:

# 1. To use URL Aliases you need to be running apache with mod_rewrite enabled.

# 2. In your abantecart main directory rename file htaccess.txt to .htaccess

# 3. Edit file .htaccess. If abantecart is installed in yourdomain/ subfolder change configuration line  RewriteBase /  to  RewriteBase /subfolder/.
# Example:   use RewriteBase /store/
# Important to have / at the end of the line.

# 4. if htaccess and mode_rewrite still does not works - check and set apache2 webserver directive AllowOverride All for your virtual hosts

Thank you for the reply.

My hosting company has replied as follows:

This seems to be disrupting the re-writes rules for newsletter redirect to mailchimp url.
You might have to consult a developer or abantecart support to resolve the apparent redirect conflict.

How-to questions / Permanent Redirect Issues
« on: May 24, 2018, 05:13:51 AM »

This is a new problem I'm having, never was an issue on Zencart so I am puzzled.

I want to redirect a specific URL for newsletter signups as follows: =>

Done the redirect as a permanent redirect in CPanel but it doesn't work. I always end up at my Abantecart site with the error page.

Any suggestions?

How-to questions / Tax Included Message
« on: May 23, 2018, 03:23:31 AM »

I tried using AbanteCart feature Localization Taxes to show prices with tax included, but I end up with rounding errors compared to my Quickbooks system prices. So since I am only selling in this country with tax included I have deleted the tax rate and just have the prices shown.

What I need to do now is add a message that informs customers that all prices are inclusive of VAT.

Any suggestions?

Funny, that is what I thought. But it doesn't work even though other things were imported with the database and they do work.

Ok, looks like I'll have to fix them manually rather.
