General Support / Re: editing when using multiple languages
« on: October 05, 2013, 11:06:39 AM »
Thank you for the information.   I would like to continue the conversation just a bit as I still have some confusion here.

First let me say,  I am not opposed to paying for the Google,  my concerns were more along the lines that the explanation on the extension doesn't tell one about that necessity.  And that until a couple of months ago Google API1 was a free service,  then they changed to API2 and made it only a paid service.   It's the concern with being tethered to Google services as they are prone to changing their way of offering services. 

Next,  there seems to be something that is installed with abantecart version 1.1.7  that does do translation if the settings are done correctly - setting them to on in the correct places.  It does function upon editing of a block.  So what is that?  How does it differ from the Google API2?

If one installs the Google,  how could one roll it back to what's initially included in abantecart?  It is just a matter of turning off the extension and changing the setting in Text Translation Method: back to the  Default method is a straight copy of source language text  on System > Settings?

Thank you for more details on this issue.

Hello,  I have a bit of experience with SSLs in another environment. Here's what I know about shared SSL.

Shared SSL is not recommended for e-commerce sites, because customers expect to see your domain in the URL.  And if you attempt to use your domain name with the shared certificate, it is not guaranteed to work. Even if visitors can see your site, the shared SSL warnings will make customers uncomfortable submitting their credit card information through your website

If you require an SSL solution,  you should purchase one that is issued just to your domain.  Your hosting provider will be happy to sell you one and they most likely will install it for you also. 

There are all price points and security available - you need to define why you need one, and then compare pricing and features before buying.  Just do a search for SSL and you will learn a lot.

Hope this helps a bit.

Template Support / Re: image on category pulldown
« on: October 04, 2013, 05:45:04 PM »
No it's not cache issue.  I added this comment on the original post = but I think you were answering while I was adding :)

Oh,  I figured it out maybe -  It picks up the image associated with the last sub-category.   So now my question would be how to change that to choose the one I want to use.

So in this case I have three sub-cats,  if I arrange the sort order so that the one I want to show graphic is the last one,  it works.
But that is an unusual way to handle.

Template Support / image on category pulldown
« on: October 04, 2013, 05:04:06 PM »
Using version 1.1.7 with html5 template.   Where do I edit the graphic that shows on the category pulldown?  I have added the image and it shows on the grid for the category,  but I can't seem to get it to display on the pull down.

I want to replace the 'camera' shot. 

Thanks for the help.

Carl,  I am just beginning to understand multi-store setup myself.   But I do know that you can set up users for each store and restrict those users to what they can access.

It is found in System > Users   and then you can setup User groups and/or users.

That gives the Master Admin control.

Additionally you can control any of the categories, products etc  by either having the checkbox for the store on or off.
So if you have product 1 and select Store A and Store B,  both will see product 1,  but they can each set their own pricing.
If you have product 1 and only select Store A,  Store B won't see it in their products listing.

Now what I am still looking to figure out is if Store A sees there is  Store B in the dropdowns.  I think they do,  but haven't tested completely yet.

Hope this helps a bit.

In regards to  "Google Translate API 2" extension, Google says it is only available as a paid service.  Important: Google Translate API v2 requires billing information for all accounts before you can start using the service. To sign up for billing, sign in to the Google APIs console and click the Billing tab.   Seems like that detail should be disclosed in the extensions description prior to purchasing.

There also seems to be a Google Website Translator which is free.  Is that what is installed in Abantecart currently?
If so,  why would one want or need to move to the paid service?

Ok  I've attached a screen shot of my settings:

Note - that there is nothing in Text Translation Box except 'Copy Source Language Text'

I tried editing
Home :: Languages :: Edit  Language - EspaƱol
I tried loading (button at the bottom)

I don't see where to get the Google API for Espanol,  it doesn't appear in the extensions store - so maybe directions to how to do that will solve the issue.

If I put something in fresh (not edited)  I get both English and Espanol,  but edit doesn't seem to function correctly.

I am missing something -  I just don't know what

Thanks for keeping at it.

By accident  I actually clicked on the graphic rather than the "view larger Image" link under the graphic. 

 All is well if one clicks on the graphic.   I have reported the issue to Algozone in case they want to fix it.

Thanks for trying to help.

Ok,  I found the language settings,  it looks like some things translate - others do not.

For instance,  I changed the Testimonials Block (on the footer of the html5 template) on the English -  to Events and changed the text. but when I switch to Spanish it is still Testimonials, but in Spanish.

On the Categories -  I changed one on the demo cart,  the English is presented on both languages?
I added some description in the category -  it shows up on the English home page,  it shows up in English on the Spanish Edit pages,  but doesn't show at all on the Home page when Spanish is selected. 

How to I get all those places to translate?  How do I get it to be consistent in where it translates?

I seem to be having difficulty getting the correct settings to get edits to work across selected languages or perhaps I don't understand what exactly the language translator works.

  Do I have to edit everything in both languages?  Is there no translation that is done automatically?   English is my primary language and that is what I want on the site to be grammatically correct.  But if the language can use a translator for the Spanish, pulling from the originating English input is what I am looking for.

I have version 1.1.7 and am using the html5 default.  I installed the demo info, thinking it would be easier to edit while in the learning phase.   It has English and Espanol installed and that is what I would like for the final site.

In changing the categories -  I can get the English to edit correctly.   But I can't get it to change on the Spanish side.

I have Autotranslate Status:  and  Override if source language text was changed: both set to ON.
I have tried various combinations, but can't get it right.

Thank you.

Small suggestion:  perhaps it would be good to add that information to the documentation at

Extension Support / extension store - unable to view larger images
« on: October 02, 2013, 01:27:17 PM »
Hello,  I know that the extension store is "managed" by Algozone.   But here's the issue I am finding,  I can only find Templates on   So if I want to explore additional extension - it has to be by going thru the Dashboard to the extension store.  That is okay,  BUT  once one clicks on more information about an extension  it's impossible to enlarge an image to determine what it might be able to do.   All browsers,  FF, Chrome, IE  give same results   

I've a attached a partial screen shot so you can see. The same results occur on all places for enlarging the image.   

There are some extensions that I have interest in,  but am hesitant to purchase as I can't determine by the extremely small amount of information rather it will do what I want to do.   I am reporting this here since this is the preferred avenue to get to the extension store - thought you might like to know.

Thanks for whatever help you can provide here.

I tested adding a mutli-store location.   Now I need to delete/remove a store from the line-up in the admin panel and all of it's associated info within the databases.    But can't find any way to do that on the admin panel.  Directions please.

I did find another question on this from early Sept,  but it remains unanswered, so there's at least two of us who need help.

Thanks for your help -
