General Support / How to set cookie domain
« on: November 08, 2016, 08:13:56 AM »
For some reason, credit card data is not passing to my language subdomains (which are hosted by a company other than my web host). The company explained that I need to set cookie domain so the data transfers from to My coder says I cannot simply change the url to a relative one because it is generated with built-in function: According to him, this function generates the URL based on server configuration:

I posted a question the other day in this forum and one of the core developers suggested replacing "null" on line 364 with my domain name. I tried this, but it didn't work:

How can I set cookie domain in AbanteCart? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

According to the translation service provider, the problem is caused for not having cookies set up in the domain name. I posted a new question in this thread:,5156.0.html

It looks like you are using redundant information in this section: <span size="2" color="white" style="color: white; font-size: small;">

As far as I know, color should be defined as style, not as a separate entity. I would change the code to:

<span size="2" style="color: white; font-size: small;">

Is there any way I can see all of the items which have "Featured" set to ON without using my SQL DB?

Yes, you could create a new category named "Featured" (don't place it under no other parent category). Next, go to your store Admin and look for your new category under Catalog > Categories.  Click the Edit pencil icon (then General if you are using v 1.2.8 . Click the Layout tab at the top and select the plus sign (+) next to Content Bottom. Scroll to select the Featured block and save your selection. You should now have a new tab named "Featured" in your storefront.

NOTE: You can set the number of featured items under System > Settings > General.

Compare html form in both languages maybe something translated by third party broke form or form values

Hi, Basara. I compared the html and didn't find any difference between both forms except that the one in Spanish added an action="" attribute. The action value is blank in Spanish and it doesn't show at all in English. Might this be the cause of the problem? I checked online but couldn't find an answer to my question.

I use a third-party search engine in my store. I can get the entire site indexed, including the information pages. I wrote about this in another post:,4899.0.html

« on: September 27, 2016, 07:55:08 PM »
Hi, I have increased my font-size and now the testimonial goes out of line Can someone tell me where is this coming from I tried changing width on flexslider.js but it doesn't work

Check out the settings for #testimonialsidebar in /store/storefront/view/default/stylesheet/style.css
To edit the content of the Testimonials block, log in to store Admin then select Design > Blocks. Look for "testimonials" under Name.

I'm getting an error message when trying to check out in a language other than English. Today, I placed a test order in Spanish and got this error message: "A valid amount is required." (See attached screenshot.) A customer in Quebec reported the same problem the other day when she tried to check out in French.

I spoke with and they said this error is not coming from them. In fact, they have no record of the order attempts.

What's causing this issue and how can I get it resolved?

We will try to put an extension override in here for 1.2.9 or 1.3
Let's keep this post open and we will come back once we will have a code change here.

Thank you. It would be great if you could include it in 1.2.9.

General Support / How to override specific templates?
« on: August 25, 2016, 08:42:44 AM »
I want to override email template (`/template/mail/order_confirm.tpl`) via my extension, but AbanteCart doesn't allow to do that for some reason. Also I'd like to modify products list, before sending email, but I don't see any `Init` or `Update` hooks inside the Order Model which performs sending (`admin/model/sale/order.php`), so I can't do that. The only `hk_confirm`
hook is called before products list generation, so it doesn't help.

General Support / Alternate path for shopping cart a good idea?
« on: August 24, 2016, 12:26:32 AM »
A developer is working on a extension for me and he came up with an alternate path for the shopping cart. The path was changed from index.php?rt=checkout/cart to index.php?rt=checkout/cart_sp. Is this a problem at all? Any potential drawbacks with using an alternate path?

For some reason, I'm not getting the correct display in the fax field when I go to Sales > Orders > Order  Details. See attached screenshot. Which template should I restore to fix this problem? Or is the problem being caused by something else?

General Support / RESOLVED: How to delete unwanted extensions?

I downloaded some extensions from the Marketplace but I changed my mind and decided not to install them. How do I get rid of these unwanted extensions? They show as "ready to install" but there's no delete button.

General Support / Re: How can I set up an automated email response?
« on: August 17, 2016, 07:57:32 AM »
When a customer signs up to the newsletter, they do not receive a confirmation email. Is it possible to send an automated response to anyone who signs up to emails?

Hi Jay. I believe you can do this by adding a new "order" status to System->Localisation->Order Statuses, then create a cron job to work in conjunction with promo sender:

Promo Sender lets you select from the status list the customers you want to email. You could have a new status named "subscriber", "subscribed" or anything along those lines. You may need to assign the status manually, though, for each subscriber. I'm not 100% sure that Promo Sender will work for your particular setting. I suggest giving it a try.

Thank you for checking. Not sure what's happening on my end. On certain product pages I see the correct favicon; on others I don't!
