General Discussion / South African Stores
« on: May 10, 2017, 04:38:10 PM »
Anybody from South Africa (apart from us) using AbanteCart? Got any thing to show off? or warnings for the rest?

I figure if we all join together we can benefit from a collective knowledge of how SA works, also get some buying power for dev work that we'd like to have done... e.g.: wouldn't it be nice to have a few local courier options? or possibly some different payment gateways?

We could assist each other to all collectively grow our eCommerce businesses and keep the awesome product that is AbanteCart going strong in SA.

Customization help / Quoting Sytem
« on: October 11, 2016, 04:42:46 PM »
We often get asked to draw up a quote for business customers that cannot simply buy online but rather have to go through the bureaucracy of adding us as a vendor, providing a purchase order etc..

To draw up a quote we currently manually place an order via the storefront and then from the admin area save the invoice as HTML and modify it to say "Quote" and send it on... this is simple enough but if we get a very large quote then the order (which isn't committed to by the client) reserves all of the stock and actual clients buying via the store front cannot complete their orders, furthermore we only promise to hold stock for 7 days on an order so if the customer hasn't paid the Quote value then we cancel the order and restock the products one-by-one.

Does anybody else face this business problem, if so, how do you handle it?

I'd love to go so far as to automate it but I dont see any items on the marketplace that match my need and I dont have enough time (or skill) to develop this from scratch.

Customization help / Grey out Product Options when out of stock
« on: April 28, 2016, 11:22:56 AM »
On the default_html5 template (perhaps others too) the product options show the number left in stock or "Out of Stock" if applicable.
I'd like to disable (grey out) the radio button (or checkbox) when items are out of stock.

I had a look at the /storefront/view/default_html5/template/pages/product/product.tpl but I see the code for adding the options is pulling data from an Array (as seen below)                                     
Code: [Select]
<div class="controls">
<?php echo $option['html']; ?>

I have managed to get the item to disappear altogether by modifying the controller at /storefront/controller/pages/product/product/php but thats not what I'm looking for... Id really just like a way to have the radio button not selectable (but still visible) so:
Code: [Select]
<input id="option4131085" type="radio" value="1085" name="option[413][]" disabled>Black Modular R34.00 Out Of Stock rather than
Code: [Select]
<input id="option4131085" type="radio" value="1085" name="option[413][]" >Black Modular R34.00 Out Of Stock
Any help will be appreciated

Extension Support / Template Engine Array Issue
« on: April 19, 2016, 05:11:32 PM »
Im seeing thousands of these errors in my error log:
2016-04-19 23:10:18 - warning: AbanteCart core v.1.2.6 in_array() expects parameter 2 to be array, null given in <b>/home/user/public_html/store/core/engine/extensions.php</b> on line <b>835</b>

anybody know what that is and what could be causing it?

General Support / Safari / Apple Issues?
« on: February 03, 2016, 05:02:13 AM »
We have had 4 issues with customers trying to make use of our site when using the Safari browser, I have listed two of them below as those are the ones that I have details of... I cannot replicate it but I'm hoping that somebody either has a similar problem or can advise.

We are running V1.2.5 and the default_html5 template.

Issue 1: PayPal Standard Summary rather tan Invoice
When the user attempted to checkout using the paypal standart payment method he kept getting re-directed to the paypal summary page and not an invoice that he could pay. this happens whether he was logged in to paypal or not.
Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5
Google Chrome Version 47.0.2526 (64 bit)

Issue 2: Registering / Ordering as Guest Safari Error:
The customer gets the following error (attached)
I dont know the OS or Safari version but I know that when she used Chrome it worked.


Payment Modules /
« on: December 21, 2015, 09:47:17 AM »

Im really looking for anybody to help me out with integration ( they dont yet recognize Abantecart as a big enough community to serve and I'd love to do the dev myself but time is a major issue (as I'm sure it is for all of us trying to run our stores) would anybody be interested in a bit of freelance work or at very least some collaboration so we can get working on this together.


General Support / Combined Products into Kits
« on: November 25, 2014, 09:53:37 AM »
Not sure if this is the right subare to post this question but if not... please move me to the right place.

I have an electronics store and I group products into kits for easier sales (especially when people are not technical)
the problem I face is: I need to keep track of stock.

If I include product A into Kit 1 and I sell 5, I need product A's stock level to be decreased... is this possible? if so, how?
Note: the same applied when you provide product options (where the options are additional stock items)
