This started out as a request for help on the Social Media Buttons. It has since degenerated into slanging match on topics other than the original post.

zehammer - If you have a problem with an extension you purchased, take it up with the extension developers or stop using the extension. Either way keep your rants off the board.

Oh and to point out your not the genius you think you are, I suggest you get used to using a gammer and spell checker. Examples from your last post:- since instead of sense, here instead of hear, iterate = VERB - perform or utter repeatedly.

Oh and before you reply and start to slang me off, I have a very smart ass, thank you very much.

Now where is that block list?

So much drivel, so little time/

Changing the colours of the Social Media Icon is a css issue.  You could use Firebug to identify the entry and change that.
If you get stuck ask again and I am sure someone will help

Hi All,

The problem was between the keyboard and the seat.  >:(

The cause of the error was a trailing space on the api username.

The joys of copy and paste  ;D

Thanks for the help, the sandbox hint was really useful

Hi all,
Paypal Express is showing an error related to the headers.
Says incorrect api details, but these have been verified by paypal.
Is there a problem with the extension?
Any fixes or suggestions welcome.


Customization help / Parts & Labour
« on: February 24, 2017, 07:42:07 AM »
Hi All,

I have been asked a question about Abantecart and I can't figure out if it can be done.

I have a friend who runs a small car renovation workshop. Part of his business is selling old and rare motor parts for old and vintage cars.
He has no problems selling the parts but wants to be able to offer a parts and labour solution for small repairs.
He wants the customer to place an initial order and for him to be able to update the order with any parts needed for the job and for the labour charges (which aren't known in advance).
The cusomer then completes the order and pays for the job when the work is done.
At the moment he is having to adjust his parts stock from his current shopping cart and invoice the job seperately via his accounting package.

Anyone know how to do this in Abantecart

Thanks in advance

I appreciate this matter being put to the bug tracker. Lets hope they can provide a fix fairly quickly. 

At the moment the only mainstream shipping extension that works in the UK is the Royal Mail, and that has its issues.

Abantecart is really good product that is easy to use and encourages customers to buy, but being unable to ship those sales without problems is a major draw back.

After all the support that the forum has offered over the last 3 months, this is a major stumbling block.

Still I need to persevere a little longer, and give the devs a chance to fix the issue.

Cheers Guys

I am using v1.2.8.
Still having the same problem with the UPS Extension.
Hopefully someone will help me solve the problem.

This is the error message I am receiving:-
UPS error: Wrong State Code! in /.......................cart/extensions/default_ups/storefront/model/extension/default_ups.php on line 193
I have contacted UPS Tech Support, who like most support organisations are pretty lax when it comes to 3rd party software.  Their response is:-
.......State / Province for U.K. locations is generally not a required field by UPS.

Do we know what UPS API Abantecart implemented?
As the UPS plugin is developed \ connected to Abantecart by them, based on UPS API, they might have set up other required fields or values, which we do not have information of (for instance UPS API does not have specific "customer classification code), only them.

I am hoping that someone UK based has made this work and can tell me how, or failing that if the Devs can supply answers to the API questions that UPS are asking.

So far I have been unable to make the UPS, Fedex and Parcel Force Shipping modules work in the UK.  This pretty much rules out International Sales and is spoiling an exceptional product.

Looking forward to a response

I am using ver 1.2.8

Trying to set up the UPS module but having problems with the Origin State/Province Field. 
There is no 2 digit code for the provinces (Counties) in the UK. 
Have any other UK users made this module work, and if so how?
Any help appreciated.
Thanks in advance

« on: February 05, 2017, 07:10:55 AM »

Unless I am mistaken - the contribute button goes to with a financial link at the bottom of the page.  This goes to:- where a paypal amount can be donated on a sliding scale or a cheque sent (bottom of the page).

Why not just chane the contribute link to go straight to the contribution page

Sorry no.  The message was displayed in the message envelope at the top of the admin screen and is as shown in my first message
