General Support / Banner Block Problem
« on: August 20, 2013, 11:33:55 AM »
I created a new store and DID NOT add sample data or products.  Now I am trying to create a banner block but it will not show because even though I keep turning it on, it keeps turning back off???  What is happening and how do I fix it?

    Yes I did make that customer a wholesale account, but this is the store I had all those problems with when I upgraded, I did it incorrectly and apparently messed something up, here are the problems I was having after upgrading:,949.0.html,983.0.html,977.0.html

I think I may have to uninstall and start over, I don't want there to be problems once the store goes live, right now it is still in production. 

Did you set account that you login with to Wholesale group?  I tested yesterday and it works. You will see price break on product detail page.
Possibly, we need to make listing pages to show this as well.

      I did what you said and it is not showing me the discount price, it still shows the regular price.  If I use the specials it shows the discount price but it says sale and I don't want that.  This is the store I had a lot of problems with when I upgraded so maybe something is messed up, I'm thinking of deleting it and starting over.

I just discovered that functionality you describe is already supported by AbanteCart.

You can set price break by quality in Product ->Promotions -> Discounts
Add discount to the quantity and set Wholesalers group.

Only customer with Wholesalers group will see this discount after login.

Is this what you suggest?

Great I look forward to it!

Thank you. We have planned to add more B2B features in the cart. This will be coming in the near future.

It would be nice to be able to have two sets of pricing, one wholesale that a customer could only see once logged in ONLY if they are a wholesale customer and one retail which would display on the site for all to see logged in or not.

It would also be nice to have the option to have the wholesale pricing be the main pricing for stores that only sell wholesale, in that case the prices would show but only an approved wholesale account could purchase so the customers would have to be approved by admin to buy.

Is anything like this in the works?

Wow that would certainly make it easy, where do I go to clone my store, I haven't seen that anywhere in admin?

Just a thought..I have 2 different types of items. I have a gift catalog with gift products and I also have oil paintings that I do. I wanted to keep them seperate, so I have a web page that is my main page (I make that with Web Easy). it contains 2 sides, one for gift catalog (this goes to my AbanteCart cart setup), one for my paintings(re-directs to my webeasy site). The customer chooses what to look at. I am thinking you could do the same sort of thing, only have 2 AbanteCart cart "stores" set up, one for regular customers , one for wholesalers. On your main page, have a link specifically for regular customers, and another link that says something like "Wholesalers click here". Each link would redirect to the correctly priced store. I believe you can clone your store for the 2nd one and only have to change the prices on your products in the 2nd store to the wholesale prices. Just a thought.

I've been a web designer for over 17 years and tried many, many, many carts, some I have liked but then the developer stopped working on them and they disappeared.  I have seen this cart around for a while and finally decided to give it a try ... boy am I glad I did that, I LOVE this cart!!  It is very professional looking, pretty easy to use for the most part and anything I did have trouble figuring out has been quickly answered when posted to the forum.  This is the best cart I have seen in a long, long time.

The new responsive template lends itself to many different looks and makes it easy to come up with different designs if your clients can't afford to buy templates (most of my clients are animal rescues and they have no money to spare), love it, love it, love it!!

My first two stores using it:

Customization help / Re: Not Add Content Page To Menu But Have It Work
« on: August 16, 2013, 10:54:20 PM »
All's well. I made my own contact page to use with a custom form.

   I do want the ones that are there so I came up with a work around that will work for me.

I made a category called Foster & Adoption Stories and have it turned on but am not adding products to it.  Instead I changed the wording for the "You have no products listed" to something generic (the clients tag line), since there won't be any categories with no products, it doesn't matter what that say's.  I couldn't leave it empty because it kept putting text_empty, even when I deleted that it would put it back.

So now I added a block I created with links on it to the center as my content and the links on the page go to pdf's I created and uploaded for the stories.  I think that will work fine for me.

Just thought I document what I did in case anyone else is in need.

Since I have you here, I can't find where to edit the layout of the contact us page, can it not be edited for layout?  What I mean can it not be edited individually for layout?

Thank you for your help, I must say I am really liking this cart, it is a very nice program and I will be using it exclusively for any client wanting a shopping cart.  Nice work AbanteCart people!!

New page for the stories is:

You need to edit  template file to filter what you want to show: /storefront/view/default_html5/template/blocks/menu_bottom.tpl

You can disable it in layout as well if you do not want it at all.

Is there a way to do this in when using the responsive template?  I too need this feature ... using version 1.1.6 with the new responsive template.

« on: August 15, 2013, 08:19:34 PM »
OK, those are what I have as my settings and it still is wrong ... guess I have to wait for the fix.  Thanks for your help.

You need to edit language entry for date_format_short and date_format_long  in System -> Languages -> Language Definition

See screenshot.

Note: there is a small bug in 1.1.6 with storefront selection, it shows both admin and storefront. Will be addressed in 1.1.7.

OK, this key system->localisation->language_definitions was already changed in admin ... sorry but I don't know what purge means, how do I do that? 

mmm... what about changing this key in system->localisation->language_definitions?
Other way ....You can purge table language_definition and clear cache too to see effect.

    OK, changed the file you recommended and it didn't work, date is still the same.

Any ideas where I can change the way the date displays on the site, I want it to look like this:  08/13/2013 instead of  13/08/2013?

date format takes from languages/english.xml file. key: date_format_short.
You can set your own format. See details here
but... it's off topic... create a new, please.

Support / Re: File Upload Option Looks Weird??
« on: August 14, 2013, 05:52:56 AM »
      Anyone figure out a way to fix the odd way this looks, I have upgraded other stores and this didn't happen, so I obviously messed something up, here is another screenshot:

It is firefox 23.0, AbanteCart version 1.1.6 but I had a big problem when I upgraded, I did something wrong and got a ton of errors, I am attaching the error log, looks like I am still getting errors, got some today.

PS.  It is a .txt file

Anyone have any idea why my file upload looks so weird ... I can't think of anything I did to cause this??

Pleas post what browser (and version) and  Abantecart version.
