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!

Customization help / Inquiry about .png alpha channel usage
« on: November 06, 2014, 10:57:58 AM »
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!

General Support / Multiple Related Issues - Banners and Blocks
« on: November 05, 2014, 09:25:11 AM »
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.

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!
