Documentations & Manuals / Manuals for how to use Extensions?
« on: December 03, 2013, 10:23:07 PM »
I have bought a couple of extensions and struggle with some of them on how to use.

For example I just purchased the Rewards extension.  I see a number of places to configure it but I have no idea what setting a value does.  Some documentation with extensions would be really nice else I'm loathe to by more and end up not being able to use them.

Support / Copy default_html5 template to customise
« on: December 03, 2013, 09:43:55 PM »

I'd like to modify mainly css for the default_html5 template.  I'd like to first copy this template to a new template and make the mods in the copy.  This way if I screw things up (very likely) I can just switch back to the default, make another copy and try again.
I installed the developer extension as I thought it would help me do this.  I did make a template using it and it made a copy but things aren't quite right.  for example blocks have their title displaying even though in admin it shows they are turned off.

Also I see when I use the developer extension it creates the new template under extensions folder where the original default_html template is under storefront/view
Can I just copy default_html5 to another folder under storefront/view (named something like my_template) and be ale to use it?
You may have gathered I am not a developer so this is probably a stupid question.  I do know how to inspect elements and mess with css though which is what I'm trying to do with my 'new' template.
I hope I'm making sense as to what I'm trying to do! Any guidance appreciated.

Support / Re: Discount based on group
« on: December 03, 2013, 09:27:35 PM »
There isn't much detail about what it does in the extension store.  Does it allow for rewards system as well as other promotions?
Why would I buy that over buying both the rewards extension and the group extension?
They really need to provide more details for extensions sold in the extension store, they'd probably sell a lot more.  A youtube vid of it in use would also help market these extensions.

Support / Discount based on group
« on: December 03, 2013, 07:47:25 PM »
I'd like to offer discounts or free shipping to customers based on which customer group they are in.  I can't see a way to do this other than edit every product to add a group discount.  This is not feasible due to the amount of products I have.  Plus if I wanted to change the discount I'd have to go back through every product again.
I'd just like to have a blanket discount, or free shipping for anyone in a particular group.
I see in the extensions store there is an extension called "Customer Group Update (Customer Loyalty)".  Would this do what I want?  Or is there someway to do it without the extension that I am missing?

Another option is to instead use the Reward Points extension. Does anyone have experience with this?  Does it work well?

Support / Modify listing block
« on: November 28, 2013, 09:45:54 PM »

I am using the listing block to display manufacturers (brands).  I created a new block and selected Data Listing, for source I selected Custom Manufacturers from the drop down, and from 'Use block wrapper (appearance)'  I chose popular_brands_content_bottom.tpl

What I was expecting like is a single row of icons with arrows at each end to scroll through the list.  and it did work like that until I added more manufacturers.  Now it looks like the attached image.  Also when I click on the arrows they just point to a # anchor so doesn't do anything except take me to the top of the page.

Ideally I'd like a band listing that autoscrolls in a slow animation until someone clicks on an icon.  But for now would be happy just to have this as a single row of brands scolled using the arrows.  What went wrong? 

My site is here if you need to Inspect Element

Now working after removing and re-installing.  But functionality looks very limited.  After creating a new template all items are greyed out except for Languages and Other (under the Hooks section).

Awesome!  I wish everything was that easy.  Thanks!

Support / Move installed cart to a different folder
« on: November 27, 2013, 04:29:26 AM »

I would like to either move my install from where it is to another folder, or just rename the folder it is in.  I'd rather not have to do a fresh install as I've done a fair bit of customisation.

Can someone provide guidance on how I can do this without screwing everything up?

The main reason i want to do this is because I had an install of Prestashop before moving to Abantecart.  Google knows more about where that is (for example a search for my site points to the /shop/ folder where Prestashop was installed but I have Abantecart in /abantecart/ folder so seeing that google search already brings up links pointing to shop in the /shop/ folder I'd like to just rename my /abantecart folder to /shop.

I hope I'm making sense here! 

Yes I installed the devtools as per the instructions.  That is I put the developer_tools folder in the extensions folder, went to extension manager and clicked on the button to install it.  I then enabled it so the little switch shows as On. Shows as installed and activated in extension manager but no develop tab anywhere to be seen

It says in the instructions above - "Now you will see new tab "Extension Developer Tools" in the system section" - not for me.

Support / Re: Products Purchased Report not working
« on: November 25, 2013, 04:57:27 PM »
yes status of orders was set to 'complete'. 

Doesn't work for me.  I followed the steps, put the developer directory under extensions, went to the admin panel and installed the extension.  All of that worked fine, the extension says it is installed but I don't see the interface anywhere.  I do not get another tab under System (or anywhere else)  like it says in the documentation above. I'm using v1.1.7

New Features Discussion / referral program
« on: November 23, 2013, 12:11:22 AM »
I'd like new customers to be able to tell me how they found out about my store when they create an account.  And if another customer told them I'd like to reward that customer with a discount.  is this something that the Affiliates extension that is in the extension store can do?

As an aside I just like to say the descriptions of the extensions in the extension store are pretty sparse.  It is hard to know what some of the extensions do or if they are worth the money.  Would be good to see a demo of them or a you tube vid or something.

New Features Discussion / Picking slip for orders
« on: November 23, 2013, 12:08:04 AM »
it would be good to be able to generate a picking slip for orders that has information about where the product is in the warehouse or from which supplier to order it (URL on the pick slip).  I looked but didn't see anything in the extension marketplace that does this.

Support / Products Purchased Report not working
« on: November 23, 2013, 12:03:43 AM »
I have had some purchases but when I run the Products Purchased Report it only shows one item purchased which was an item I purchased as a test.
I looked at the Sales Report and it shows an incorrect number of sales also. 
In fact I'm not really sure what these 'reports' are for as I can't save them, and they don't give much information, and I can't create any custom reports.  Is this section a work in progress?
