Customization help / Changing Menu Icons
« on: December 09, 2014, 04:18:56 PM »
Hi guys,

I am using the latest version of Font Awesome (4.2.0) and am having issues using this updated library to replace the current AbanteCart menu icons. Does anyone know how I am supposed to go about replacing them? For example I tried editing the resource path and resource code for the account icon but nothing happens and it always defaults to icon-lock.

I'm already using the fa fonts on other areas of my site with success so this has me stumped! Any help is really appreciated!

I feel really silly right now but I guess it's probably because I've been at it for hours and my brain started to shut down.

Yes the alpha channel on .png files work, I'd just forgotten to remove / disable #FFF from background in the various image css locations.

Sorry for the trouble!!

Hi handoyo, thanks for replying but I am referring to masking using the alpha channel of a .png file, which is different from using rgba to affect the opacity of the image as a whole. Plus with css I am only aware of the webkit solution which doesn't work with all browsers.

The e-commerce software I was previously using had a global toggle whereby if a .png file was being used, its alpha channel would be applied. I think I mistakenly assumed this would always be the case with .png, and am now looking to find out where I can use this in AbanteCart.

For example this works in AbanteCart with the store logo, but not catalog catagories images.

Hi guys, I was wondering which image settings make use of .png alpha channels as it seems to be mostly ignored? Tried with category logos, product images, banner slider image and some other images that reside in the resources folder as .png files but they don't make use of the alpha? Thanks!

Hi Basara, there are no layout related errors in the log. However I do have an App Error - Template default is not found - roll back to default in C:\wamp\www\abantecart_1.1.9\core\init.php on line 415 (dated from when AbanteCart was freshly installed).

I started working on banners today and have encountered multiple issues:

banner_block cannot be removed from layout - Settings in Layout section not being properly saved (if I refresh the page the banner_block shows up again sporadically).

Unable to delete banner_block from Blocks section or set status to 'Off' - Caused by blocks being detected as still in use in Layout, related to issue above.

I am working on default_html5, and have disabled AdBlock Plus and NoScript so that all scripts on localhost can run.

Thank you for responding to my inquiry, abantecart. I will research more on extensions before I start modifying any files.

Reading those manuals you linked, I don't think using datasets is suitable for me as all product information needs to be stored in a single csv file for ease of use.

EDIT: Thinking about it a little more, I am wondering if I will need to also modify AbanteCart's import and export functionality as well to work with and display these additional fields?

Hello everyone,

I am a new user of AbanteCart and am looking to customize aspects of my admin and storefront. Before I do, I would like to seek the advice of board members more experienced, to see if I am on the right track.

Currently I need to add custom features to the product description tab (instead of having them appear on a separate tab like in extension Product Features or Attributes) so that they appear together with the default features Availability, Model and Manufacturer. Some like SKU and Length are already in the database, others like Year of Release and Country of Release I need to create. Products will be bulk uploaded with import and export functionality as per normal.

In order to achieve this, it seems what I just need to do is as follows, but I feel that I am missing something (or doing something wrong):

1) Manually add new columns for required features to products table through phpMyAdmin.
2) Modify admin/controller/pages/catalog/product.php so that features can be edited through backend Edit Product page.
3) Modify storefront/controller/pages/product/product.php so that features appear on frontend product description tab.

Additionally, before I start working on these files, I will make a copy of them as well as backup the database. But what does 'Layout and dataset load XML' do? And need I make a copy of all the datasets in Datasets Manager as well?

Thanks for your time and help!
