Is there a way to make the first thumbnails as in the  in before you click to go yo that product bigger ie the box size its 88pix at mo but I want them to be lets say 100 by 200 px. I know you can do it in system but it seems just to change the image.


Hi All

Moved my site using backup cpanel uploaded to new part of server on a new domain (same provider)


unpacked it make url as it should be on new domain (however have made it a subfolder) so '' and found content page links broken, were 404 ing or trying to root to original url

Everything else works page wise. did not try to make a new product yet etc as assume I have a DB problem. I backed up SQL from old domain and uploaded it to new one hoping that would resolve the problem and it would then work its way around.

I did something similar with Worpress and a migrate plugin and created a new database and all was good. Is this a similar thing with AbanteCart cart. I dont mind going through the new install route but then hoe do I then up date it to my original site

What do I need to do. I did not install a new AbanteCart as i read in the forum that you didnt need to do that (am I wrong?). I have changed the CSS extensively but thats all in the template which is copied and working.

It gives me an 'index_php?/content/content=id_6' well something like that as I have redirected it again so as the all the pages work till i resolve it  :-[

any ideas


Can anyone help?

Sorry for this I probably should know unless I deleted the page/ form. But I cannot find how to set my 'contact us' page up with a form etc. Or is there short code I put in to make it when making a new page?

Where is it, and if I deleted it accidentally in the the menu list how to I find it or re instate

Am using Template2

Sorry again  :-\

and Thanks


General Discussion / Increase logo size and area
« on: July 04, 2014, 12:45:10 PM »

Is there a way I can increase the logo size for my site (template2) I am wondering if I can increase the container for it in CSS and thus increase the allowable size.

Any thoughts

Thanks for your time in advance



I've been tweaking and changing and am have loads of fun stripping down my store front, but I'm a little stumped.

I want to increase the width of my slideshow (Template2) to the right edge of wrapper. As you will see in image the static banner has happily gone to wrapper width from central block but my slideshow hasnt. Have messed with side width in Photoshop to 773px as thats the wrapper width and it seems to centralise the slide but not fill. Got slideshow set 1000px aswell. Have tried to find a resize in slideshow2.css but wasnt sure what code to change, or is it in the normal stylesheet.css or a block.css constraint?

Any ideas. Thanks in advance




Noticed that if I have a long product name it flows under the price. Which size settings do I adjust or is it a but of CSS again

Thanks for your help in advance (see attachment)

General Discussion / Floating store front central onscreen
« on: June 16, 2014, 10:09:29 AM »

I decided to set the width of the storefront width to 1000px in appearance but I found it stays left in window once you have. Is there a way to float it centrally once width is set. Do I have to edit CSS.

Thanks in advance


General Discussion / Where does the 'before order' download show?
« on: June 09, 2014, 10:31:00 AM »

I want to add a PDF to the product page for free download as specs on the product. I have gone through the download docs and activated everything but it isnt there. I'm scratching my head. Followed the instructions. Does the customer have to be logged in first as I dont need this to be the case, anyone help  :-[

Template Support / Add a downloadable pdf to description
« on: June 05, 2014, 05:42:01 PM »
Super Help :P

How do I add add a downloadable pdf to a description of a product as I need the clients/ buyers to get the specs on a product. Uploaded PDF to resources in media on the product page of said product and it mapped to the product under mapped image...Thought I had done a work around by copying URL of preview/download to description box as a link, but it bounces a 401 as I assume an external client pc (etc) that is not admin logged in can't access my server.. fair do's, that's hackable, I did a copy URL text to make the link in the description but how do I allow viewers to click and open PDF.... Tried on other laptops PC's and mobile devices and getting
{"error_title":"Login Error!","error_text":"You are not logged in. You will be redirected to login page","show_dialog":true,"reload_page":true,"error_code":401}

Do I then have to store them externally so they are accesable on a open folder in my server..  Confusion... Dont have this prob on Wordpress with PDFs.

I assume I'm missing something obvious

love abantecart, a very fast.. fun.. and tiring learning process, what am i missing.... thanks guys

Using Template2

Please advise

Thanks and  any thoughts




Love abantecart have rocked trough it pretty quick and its great... BUT. Have come to a buffer.

How do I add a pdf link download in the description. I did a work around and it worked but only if Im signed in. I want a customer to be able to download the pdf from the description.

I realised later on trying (not signed in to admin) that it wouldnt download because i wasnt signed in I assume because I was allowed priviledges as admin on my machine. So my work around was null.



This may have been answered but I havent found it yet :-\

Can I change the font colour of the product link above the price and buy now text from orange to something else, I'm using Template2, I've changed some other things in CSS easily in the main stylesheet.

Is there a way of globally changing the colour in CSS

Thanks in advance


I figured it out. If you want to change this colour. Go to the boxes.css

If you right click inspect element (using chrome) and look on the styles tab to the right of the window you will see the existing colour and essentially click on the boxes.css link to view stylesheet and where it is in the stylesheet. Copy the colour Hex code (text) and do a ctrl f and paste the code in to find where it is. Then copy a new hex colour code in as it is there. See below in red

.list .list_item img { border: 1px solid #ebebeb; }
.list .list_item .title { height:34px; overflow: hidden; }
.list .list_item .title a{
   font: bold 11px Arial, sans-serif;
    color: #30ad9e; //#ff7e00

What I did was quote out the original colour just in case I want or need it back.
