Customization help / Need a little guidence
« on: September 08, 2017, 08:19:57 PM »
While this is obviously still very much a work in progress, I am getting the hang of it. I have uploaded a pic of the top part of my site, what I want to know is the following, if you look at the pic, in order to do what it outlines, am I correct in thinking the only way is to remove the social icon block at the top, then use that column to insert a Html Box?

I would like to put a kind of description of my site, and what it does at the top and center it. I have only just started learning CSS so not ready to go too deep into code :D. The other thing I wanted to know was, at the moment I appear to have 3 columns, I would like 4 in that area but having said that It is more important to me to have my site responsive for phones.

Anyone got any ideas? and and please ignore my logo, i also hate it and will change it!!

192KB upload!! man that took some doing getting the file down to size :P

Templates / Unable to instal the theme developers tools
« on: September 07, 2017, 04:42:12 PM »
I am sure this is likely down to something I am not doing correctly.

I have tried to follow the docs to the letter. So the following is a complete breakdown of what I have done

I followed the link to github and cloned the package

I then unzipped this on my local machine

Inside this folder I found the following files..............

developer_tools_extension-master    inside this folder was the following folders




I couldnt find any mention of the version to use in the docs, so I made the assumption that as i had used the latest stable version, then I would choose the V1.2 File

As i have no way to zip files as gzip.tar and the extension loader would not take a zip file, (i zipped up the correct files inside this folder, and not just the complete 1.2 folder).

So i used FTP

inside the folder 1.2, I navigated to the Developer_tools folder and uploaded that and its subfolders.
I then set all permission of the correct folders to 777.

I am unsure if I should have actually uploaded the entire structure including all the other folders inside the V1.2 folder, the docs seem to suggest you navigate to the extensions folder and upload the developers_tools folder and its contents.

Having done all that, if I then goto the design/templates part in the admin panel and click on the clone button, i just get taken back to the doc links, nowhere can i find anyway to clone the default template.

I only wish to clone the files so I can alter the look and not loose it when upgrading, at some point in the future I may also try and alter a few things, i dont want to do this without a back up template, incse i get myself into a situation.

So far on the main template I have had no issue changes a few small CSS things

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I also have a ftp set up if someone wants to double check what I have uploaded and done.

Thanks in advance.

I also tried running the install.php file directly via the browser, but just got a file not found, i am under https:// though

General Discussion / Hi and Thank You
« on: September 06, 2017, 09:37:46 PM »
Just wanted to say Hi and a big thank you for the software.

I am 17 and started my business around a year ago (full time), its tiny at the moment but I wanted to open a online shop, I looked at loads of packages but nothing seems to fit.

Then I came across AbanteCart Cart, looks like it will do everything I ever wanted and then some!! Its likely I will be on here alot asking questions, i have read the docs but me and the web have issues :D.

Once I have stopped my site looking like a bomb hit it (i been customizing!), I will post a link. Sorry in advance for any stupid questions I will ask.

I nearly didnt use it because the numbering system fooled me, For some odd reason I was sure the latest version didnt support embedding of products!! Then I discovered I cant count properly and embedding is supported!! that and multiple stores sealed the deal big time.

I am aware the sensible approach is to hire a developer to make the few changes I want, however even the lower figures quoted are around a years turnover for my little business, so I am going to have a go myself until I can afford a pro :D.

Not that I think the prices quoted were high, its more a case I am a very small start up business.

Sorry for the waffle, and thanks again for high quality free software.

one small thing however, i couldnt sign up with my normal email address, apparently the validation dosnt take some of the newer TLD's into account. On my set up is there anyway I can add more TLD's? I dont want customers put off signing up because they cant use say .service as a email address. Thanks again
