Support / Postage Options

I want to force certain customers to have to use one service depending on their location, in this case, N.Ireland & the Scottish Highlands to use Royal Mail.

The problem is with the highlands. I have added the Highlands as a country and that seems to be OK to a certain point. It works fine when I am using the Flat Rate option but it just won't work through the Royal Mail extension, even though it is turned on for All Locations.

All my Northern Ireland options work fine.

One screen shows with my Flat Rate
One shows my Flat Rate turn on and as you can see, there is no Royal Mail option
Finally, the third one shows Northern Ireland which is how I want the highlands to be.

I hope this makes sense.

Support / Banner display on phones

Not to worry. I found a website that gives a code to make my banner responsive.
I can't see a way to delete the post.

Hello  :)

I have a banner on my site in the Main Page promo block. It looks fine on my laptop, but I'm wondering why it isn't displaying correctly on other devices.
It's a long, horizontal banner and on my phone I have to scroll to view it in full.

I'm sure it's probably something that I have done wrong!

If you need to check it out, the site is

Sorry for the delay. I've had a few days away.

Thanks for your suggestion but this didn't work. I had already tried it a few times and it's the same on different devices, including igcognito.
I have checked the sizing in the css via cpanel and it has reverted back to the original size for some reason. Unless I was looking at the wrong place.

There must be a way for this to not happen? With the template I have, I can include my own css coding but what is the code that I need for the body text?
I don't know much about css, unfortunately.

I know I keep asking questions, but being completely new to Abantecart I'm sure it's expected.

Anyway, I recently changed my main template text to a larger size (I think I put around 20px) and I did this change through the CPanel. Basically because I wasn't sure how to do it within the admin area.

Today, I have noticed that my website is now displaying the original size text which is basically really small (around 14px I think).

The template that I have actually has a section for inputting some css - would this be a better solution for me? And if so, what is the css code that I would need please?

Of course!
I forgot that I set up the admin notification settings.

Thanks for replying. I would have replied to you sooner but I forgot to turn on the notifications.

But anyway, I had double emails as admin when customers bought items.

I have sold a few items through my website and each time, I am getting the same order confirmation via email twice.

Does anyone know why this is happening?

I have had a quick look at this and I don't think it's going to do what I need it to do.
This only seems to be good for the products that I choose. That's not what I'm looking for.

I want the latest products to display on the front page in the order of the date that they were added and for it to do it automatically. If I was to use it this way, I feel that I would manually have to add every single new product that I add and I don't have the time to do that.
Maybe I'm wrong.

I think that the option mentioned earlier by someone else would be a good option, but I'm can't figure out how to actually do that solution.

Thank you. I'll take a proper look at this as soon as I have some time.

Thanks for replying.
Would you be kind enough to give me the directions for doing that?

Support / How to get products to show in a particular order
« on: February 19, 2022, 02:21:07 PM »
Hi, I have my Abantecart site up and running and I'm adding products (160 out of over 620 in total!)

I have my home page listed using the 'Latest Products' block and I have the settings set to show 'Date New to Old' but it's not quite the way I want it.
I would like my products to display based on the date the I have entered in the 'Date Available' box.

For example, let's say that the Date Available was 12 December 2021. When I add this product, I don't want it show on my home page (or Latest Products as is the case) above something that has a date of 12 February 2022.

Is there a particular way for me to do this?

I'm now trying to install the Page Builder extension but it won't let me because I don't have version 1.3.3 but when I click on update it tells me that update is only available for stores with purchased history whatever that means

Thanks for replying.
Since I made my post, I had realised that all the CSS that needs changing is in that file.
The only thing that I managed to change was the colour of some of the text in the header to black and the background to white, but I couldn't figure out how to change the 'Log in or Register' colour.

And that is about as far as I got.

I don't mind editing the file, but it's a matter of what it is that I'm looking for. I have never managed to quite figure out how to use the inspector tool. Also, the link to the Chrome one on that page you guided me to is a broken link.
I'm not sure if that CSS extension will help, because I don't know nearly enough about writing CSS coding.

Basically, I think I just need a nice guide to show me the relevant parts to edit and the absolute most important thing at the moment is hiding those icons in the drop down menu.

I might take a look at some of those templates although I was trying to not spend extra money just yet.

I really do want to use AbanteCart. I don't want to use Prestashop or WooCommerce and I don't want to have to pay for the likes of Shopify and I already have paid hosting. I really feel that there should be easier control of simple things such as colours (I'm in the UK, hence the spelling!)

I have done searches and some have thrown up nothing and some have given answers but my changes don't seem to work when I hit save on the files. I have looked through the various files where I think things will be, but I only know basics.

I can see the potential but I need to make some changes that I feel should be simple and all guidance will be appreciated. Basically, I really do need to get the layout right and to get my site back live asap.

I'd like to change the colours of both top menus to white background/black text
I'd like to remove the icons from the drop down menu (text only)
I'd like to change the colour of the text for the product listings on the home page to black

And on the product pages
Change text colour to black
Hide the larger box with the price displayed in favour of the 'Total Price' (but make that a little bigger)
Change the colour of the 'Add to Cart' to black/white
If possible, hide the Qty box simply because all my stock are one-off items

I can't post external links to show you an example, unfortunatley

I really would appreciate the help and I would be happy to make a donation when I have it set up just about how I'd like.

How-to questions / Hide Icons
« on: February 15, 2022, 04:49:01 PM »
I am totally new to Abantecart. Had a complete nightmare getting it installed but that all seems to be good now.

How do I hide the icons that appear in the drop down menus? I personally don't want or need icons to show. I like my menus to be clean with text only. I've had a good search around but I can't find that option anywhere.

Thank you.
