Existing features / Banner Manager defect ?
« on: October 18, 2012, 12:15:45 PM »
I'm getting this type of error in large amounts:

Code: [Select]
2012-10-18 11:50:38 - App Warning:  ADispatch blocks/banner_block construct FAILED. Missing or incorrect controller route path  in /home/something/public_html/core/engine/dispatcher.php on line 45
I've installed and reinstalled the banner manager module - to no avail.

What would cause this??


Installation and Configuration / Robots.txt routing?
« on: October 18, 2012, 12:13:31 PM »
I'm seeing the following error reported:

Code: [Select]
2012-10-18 11:50:38 - class not exist:  Error: URL: /robots.txt Could not load controller ! Call stack: Parent Controller:  |  < dispatch, argument :  < dispatch < build, argument : index/home < _route < processRoute, argument : index/home in /home/something/public_html/core/engine/dispatcher.php on line 180
2012-10-18 11:50:38 -

robots.txt is the usual text file located in the web root.

Any suggested method to address this??


General Discussion / SEO Content Optimization Problems
« on: October 12, 2012, 01:42:16 PM »
I am seeing a few application related problems in content optimization on Webmaster tools.

The problems are duplicate title tags and duplicate page descriptions.

The reasons for this include use of the same title tag for paged content (page=1 and page=2 have the same tag) and the replication of some query string functionality (apparently using path=1 and category_id=1 to point to the same content).

A couple of useful adjustments which could be made would include:

1. Replace references to the path variable with the appropriate object ID - category_id in this case.
2. Add page number to the title tag on paginated pages.

Not necessarily big problems - but some potential to stand out in the crowd in terms of search optimization..

Are there any instructions or usage documentation available for the Extension Generator?

If so, where would they be found?

Can someone please correct the Extenstions misspelling to Extensions ?



General Discussion / Import / Export Design
« on: September 04, 2012, 07:54:12 PM »
One problem I have with import / export on Abantecart is that the product export seems to be so wide when exported to CSV or Tab Delimited forms.   Had a bit of trouble understanding why this might not seem a problem to developers until I had a chat with an associate today who had installed a version of the osCommerce import / export contribution which did the same thing.

Now I recall that we generated a version which chunked product imports and exports so that attributes were NOT in the same file and languages were on separate lines in order to keep them down to a dull roar and make the files more manageable....


General Discussion / Hard coded folder paths?
« on: September 04, 2012, 07:14:28 PM »
I tend to do manual updates on my sites.  For some reason I sometimes see references to attempts to access an update.xml file in our server wide tmp folder.  As we don't generally allow access to the tmp folder itself, this is not good.

I don't see where this location can be configured anywhere...


I am attempting to setup some product attributes / options and have run into problems with price handling.

The instructions read as though the option "price" field is a modification of the base product price.  Whether the modification acts as a price increase or decrease appears to depend on the setting of the prefix.  The current user documentation reads:


Prefix: If you wish to ADD the extra amount, i.e. $2 MORE for this option, select "+" If you wish to DISCOUNT this option, select "-"

However, the actual prefix settings in 1.0.3  read either a dollar sign
or a percent sign

In either case, only the base product price is ever entered into the cart.

The sample product I am working with can be seen at:


Can someone clarify what is supposed to happen here ??


General Extensions / Placing Asynchronous scripts globally
« on: July 22, 2012, 12:26:27 PM »
I've been looking at the developers documentation.

We need to place an asynchronous script (two separate script tags, one initializing things for the other, which provides the final service).    The method provided for placing scripts seems to only support adding scripts into the header.

Am I missing something here??


General Support / Backup Fails with Cannot pack error
« on: July 02, 2012, 10:53:38 AM »
Attempting to backup existing 1.0.2 install before upgrading.

Receive error:

Error: cannot to pack /somepath/admin/system/backup/manual_backup_2012-07-02-10-40-20.tar.gz Exit code:


1. Correct English would be "Cannot pack to" rather than "cannot to pack"
2. No exit code is reported.
3. Path is writable to file owner, but not to group or other.


Support / Manual Update Instructions ??
« on: July 02, 2012, 10:23:32 AM »
I have not found any instructions for doing a manual upgrade of an existing site.

Given that Abantecart does track install and upgrade activities, there would seem to be more steps than simply uploading the files and running the sql file.  Any pointers???


Support / Password reset error
« on: July 02, 2012, 09:44:06 AM »
I get the following error on attempt to complete password reset:

Fatal error: Cannot access protected property AMail::$hostname in /home/lifesolu/public_html/dev/admin/controller/pages/index/forgot_password.php on line 141

Please advise.


Existing features / Data Import Date Formats?
« on: June 27, 2012, 07:42:25 AM »
What formats are acceptable for date inputs in imports?  I see a couple of varieties used...

New Features Discussion / API request
« on: June 26, 2012, 08:03:34 PM »
Can we get the quantity on hand checks encapsulated and hooked?  This would be most helpful for a project we're working on..

(particularly concerned with add to cart and cart validation in checkout)


Existing features / Data Import / Export actions?
« on: June 26, 2012, 07:48:48 PM »
I see some references in the documentation for Data Import / Export that an XML ACTION tag is required to insert new products via this system, and get the impression that this would be required for CSV and other delimited files as well.  Can someone verify this, and advise as to any column heading requirements ??
