I have created a new form where one of the fields is of type "file".   When I click submit on the form, I get an email with all of the other information but the file is not attached? (not sure if it is supposed to be attached in the email or whether it is uploaded to my file system.
On the form creation page - the field:   "Upload directory name (admin/system/upload/) is set to "admin/QuoteRequest".  (I  assumed this is where the file would be stored.   (I created a  directory called "QuoteRequest" in the admin dir.)

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? I am using version 12.4. with the default template and am currently in maintenance mode.
(note I  also have a max filesize of 10 mb) configured for this field - The file I uploaded was only 2 mb.

Support / What if any code changes that I make will survive upgrade?
« on: October 19, 2015, 12:42:39 PM »

I am relatively new to AbanteCart and webpage development in general. I have set up my e-commerce site using the existing code and configuration tools 9e.g. layout, blocks, modification of language definitions to change text mesages etc.  However, there have been a few instances where changes via the admin interface are not sufficient to get the look I want.   For example, I  have modified the file:

public_html/AbanteCart /storefront/view/default/template/pages/product/product.tpl.

in order to show the available amount of inventory for the given product.

In searching through  the file structure for abantecart, I see that there are some files (e.g. category.php ) which has the following note at the top :

   Do not edit or add to this file if you wish to upgrade AbanteCart to newer
   versions in the future. If you wish to customize AbanteCart for your
   needs please refer to for more information.

However, i do not see this message on all files - so I'm wondering if someone could help answer  the following:

A) which, if any, file changes survive upgrade?
B) If File modifications like the one above do not survive upgrades, how does one go about making changes in a way that will survive upgrade?

(BTW, the above comments suggest going to to find out, but I'm not sure where on I should be looking for info on customizing my AbanteCart instance.)


 I have the following documents - Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy and Return Policy.  Is there a way to select multiple of these documents to Account Terms and Checkout Terms? so customers are forced to agree to both documents as opposed to just one?  When I look at Checkout Terms and Account Terms under System->Settings->Checkout tab, It seems that I can only select one document each.

Running version 1.2.4.



I am fairly new to AbanteCart.  when I log into admin,  I see the following buttons on the left hand side. Two questions:

1) What are these buttons for?    Moving them to the right  does not lead to any noticeable difference in the displayl/  Hovering over the buttons does not provide any indication as to what they are.
2) i presume the current states as shown in the pic is "off",  Sliding to the right changes them to "orange" which suggests the option is "on?"

I am currently in Maintenance mode doing some testing on my website.  My website is configured to allow for Guest Checkout.
I placed an order as Guest checkout with "notify customer" selected.

If I look at the email sent to the guest customer, there is link in the email which allows them to see their order.

e.g. :
To view your order click on the link below:
<my website url>/index.php?rt=account/invoice&order_id=14

If i click on that  link, it takes me to the account login page instead of showing the details of the order.

e.g. above link is redirected to the following link:
<mywbsite url>/abante2/index.php?rt=account/login&token=3545ac7ade93a988f46bdfeb037f49a1

Any ideas as to why this would be happening?

BTW:  I have version 1.2.4 installed

General Support / How can we change the font, styles available for content
« on: September 28, 2015, 12:20:57 PM »
The editor available withing Design->Content Manager is limited.  I cannot change the font or size.  Ther eis just "Styles" and "Format" pull down menu - but even when I select the text to be Heading 1,  it doens't seem to really change the size when I look at the website.  Anyone know how to make other fonts and sizes available in the editor?

btw - I'm running version 1.2.4


Configuration / how can I bulk modify the status on pages
« on: September 24, 2015, 03:33:08 PM »
I am new to AbanteCart.  The default installation has a bunch of products showing - I want to disable their status  (i.e. Status=off).  I see there is a way to select all items but how do I actually change all of them to have status= off?    I want to do the same with Countries and currencies as an example.   Does AbanteCart have this functionality? If so, how do I use it?


I need help - just installed AbanteCart yesterday and set "Maintenance mode"  to on.
I am logged in as admin but when I click on the icon in the top right corner (storefront), i get the maintenance page and not the default page.
Please help me - I  need to be able to build my sight without having to constantly move out of maintenance mode.

I am new to AbanteCart and looking for help.  I have found the location for uploading my store logo: (Design-> templates -> Edit template. I am using the default template.    Uploaded a .png file of my logo..

I left all other settings as the default (e.g. storefront site width = 100%.  I see various widths, heights - but  am not sure what they mdean (eg.. grid Image height and width,. 

Currently my store is off line and so when I go to it,  I see the maintenance page.  The problem is that my store log is absolutely giant and the default text is showing on top of the logo.  How can i  reduce the size of the logo so that it only shows at the top right corner. 

(Please note  - I just installed Abantecart - so almost all fields are default. I've got CV1.2.4. installed.

Any help would be much appreciated.
