Extension Support / no BS5 clone available dev tools
« on: January 20, 2024, 05:20:25 PM »
Installed dev tools.
Cloned Default with no problems.

Activated Bootstrap5 then went to:

System>DevTools>Clone Template>Template Mgr
The Bootstrap5 doesn't have clone option
Clicked Edit, no clone option
Clicked Settings, no clone option

Template drop down doesn't list BS5 as a choice to clone

I have AC v1.3.4

I uploaded Dev Tool folder to public_html/extensions
installed via Extensions All
Activated the extension.

Think I figured this out...

After downloading dev tools 1.3beta
open each folder till you find the DevTools folder
upload THAT folder(only that folder) to

Then I can see it in All Extensions
click install (little arrow)
Turn it on

Go to  System>  Should see Dev Tools
Go to Design>Templates
Click the double page icon(bottom right on the Default picture)
follow instructions on screen

I didn't notice an option for cloning Bootstrap5...maybe someone else knows??

I have one more question:
Why download all those folders if we don't need to upload them?

I still can't see the dev tools in Extensions All.

Is there something I need to do to activate it?

All I did was Upload code folder to extensions folder

all permissions were already set to what you listed above

Went to extensions All
not there

cleared cache and browser
still not there

I think maybe I need step by step...haven't worked on coding in many years

I'm using default template

My apologies for not "getting" the steps right.
And thank you for all your help.

How-to questions / Need to learn CSS?

Need to learn CSS?

Check out this page:

i filename=trycss_website_layout_navbar

copy and paste code on the left
click the "RUN" button
See the results on the right
make changes and hit the button again, over and over

Play around with the css and browse the whole site.(there's a Home button, upper left) You are guaranteed to learn some CSS and html and javascript...
They have a lot of info relating to web development.

***I had health issues that wiped some of my memory, so I go there often myself. Gone are the days of bookkeeping and easy website tech. Web development is super hard now, but I keep on keeping on. And I make lots of notes. ;)  :)

Edited to ad:
Use cpanel, scroll to File Manager


That's where most of your design settings, css is.

dev tools from here: https://
downloaded > unzipped >

have tried to install v1.0 v1.2 v1.3(beta)

filezilla - uploaded using "auto" type setting for filezilla

uploaded folder code >> icebuggy/public_html/extensions

set permissions to 0777

don't see this anywhere: directory for cloned template
don't see this anywhere: For template extension clone, you need to set temporary /extensions/ directory to 777
don't see this anywhere: core template clone set /storefront/view/ directory to 777

Tried setting folders I thought were right, to 0777
went to my site admin/extensions/install extensions
dev tools isn't there.

This is from the ReadMe file:

It is important to make sure that developer_tools directory and directory for cloned template have complete rules to write files (777). For template extension clone, you need to set temporary /extensions/ directory to 777 and for core template clone set /storefront/view/ directory to 777

now I'm stuck, step by step from here would be greatly appreciated.

AbanteCart Version 1.3.4

Thanks in advance.
