Topics I've Started

Extra Store

22 November 2017 - 09:00 PM

This is something Im unsure if Im doing it the best way.


At the moment we have various schools that we supply with uniforms, and the school wants the parents to come to our website and order items themselves and pay via card, and then come collect from our store.


At the moment we do it like this

We set a category up with all the products for the school, only about 10 products,mystore .com/ schoolname (we then disallow google this in robots.txt.) and brand that category with the school logo and info and products etc.


the problem is these products are duplicated from the main categorys and are also at a good discounted rate for the school, but are still open to everyone who stumbles on them really, as they are not applied to user groups as this requires each parent who buys for the children to log in and be "activated" to that usergroup so it can be virtually impossible to do that for every parent.



I knwo how to set up categories and products for usergroups as we do that for other companies where there is only 1 or 2 "buyers" so usergroups work fine for them.


Do I create another store,? to avoid these "discounted" products being seen by "joe public" I have ultimate licence, if so do i need a new web address just for the school etc.

Is it worth creating another store for only 10 products, payment methods/shipping etc.


Can one be created where it is a generic log in to view, so that the teacher can give all the parents the same log in, then they can pay using there own cc details etc.???


Slightly confused as to what is best




Drop Tables Before Copying

19 November 2017 - 11:53 AM

When copying live database to dev database do you always have to "drop" the tables first, seems the only way I can do it.

Is it not possible to just overwrite with new one?

I cant remember where to specify what file types I allow customers to upload as a product option, for them to create custom products.

product options tooltip.


I have 1000s of product options and now want to go and add some info to the option as per screenshots




I can do this one by one, but will take a looooong time. the info is the same for all my options. Is there any way I can do it via import or db.




New Design Finished For My Site

09 November 2017 - 07:08 AM

Had the alt team come up with a new design for my hi visibility and personalised workwear site in the uk.

It also uses their product designer, which I have been using for a good few years now.


Still the odd teething problems and lots more products to add to the designer, any comments/issues anyone finds I would welcome any feedback
