Custom Development Of Banners, Social Media Imagery, Photo Editing And Logo

05 January 2018 - 09:47 AM

Hello,we need help with the graphic development of our webstore that is based upon the UniTheme by Alexbranding.


There is a lot I can do myself but I lack the skills and sometimes just the time to develop suitable banners for our webstore and it all has to align with our envisioned house style.

We have been around since 2005 and actually in an other form since as early as 1997 - 98.  Along side renting out webspace on unmanaged servers and virtual private (unmanaged) cpanel servers we own two webstore both of them based upon the latest iteration of CS Cart (V4.7.1SP2).


For one of them we need help, preferably a partner in graphic development who is familiar with the quirks (in the good sense) of CS Cart and the UniTheme made by Alexbranding. 


Right of the bat I need someone who can help me create banner templates for both the home page, the AB landing category pages, sometimes help with photoediting for blog post images and product photo editing, in the near feature social media design, print flyers and product label development.


First priority, new templates for product and or brand banners for the homepage, socalled social media facebook quote / meme, template for a deal of the week photo.


We use constant contact for our emails so it would be a pref if you have experience with that environment.


Please contact me or reply in this thread.


Yours truly,



Trouble With Laoding Product Features In Promo Editing

03 January 2018 - 11:15 PM



We experience issues with regards to applying product features as part of conditions set in promotions.


See screenshot - https://i.imgur.com/bmhT728.png


What can be the issue here? Is it is server side and so what php.ini setting or is het purely an issue with CS Cart. What could it be?


When we try to apply a condition for a promotion which relies upon a certain product feature that not all product features are loaded and we see what you see in this particular screenshot (Loading...).


We have already increased the PRODUCT_FEATURE_VARIANTS_THRESHOLD in the config.php file

define('PRODUCT_FEATURE_VARIANTS_THRESHOLD', 240); // if number of product feature variants less than this value, all product feature variants will be retrieved, otherwise product features variants will be retrieved by ajax

Moving Cs Cart Store With Second Storefront - Addon Domain Issues Cpanel

13 December 2017 - 11:24 AM

There are instructions for moving your cs-cart from server to another. How well documented I cannot find the same instructions for  a store using a second storefront / addon domain.


The previous installation was on a Cpanel server and we moved it to a new Cpanel server. Should I now follow the same procedure as when we first installed the second store front as a addon domain or is there secondary procedure ?

Image Blogpost Visible But Not In Blog Article Overview

26 November 2017 - 12:56 PM

We moved our store from one server to another and now for some reason when adding a new image

to a new blog article this image does not appear in the blog sitemap masonry but do appear in the blog article itself.


Where might I look for a solution ? I have already checked the ownership (permission) settings.

Redis Configuration Issues -

24 November 2017 - 11:10 PM

Enabling Redis setting in the config.local.php file

// Cache backend
// Available backends: file, sqlite, database, redis, xcache, apc, apcu
// To use sqlite cache the "sqlite3" PHP module should be installed
// To use xcache cache the "xcache" PHP module should be installed
// To use apc cache the "apc" PHP module should be installed
// To use apcu cache the PHP version should be >= 7.x and the "apcu" PHP module should be installed
$config['cache_backend'] = 'file';
$config['cache_redis_server'] = 'localhost';
$config['cache_redis_global_ttl'] = 0; // set this if your cache size reaches Redis server memory size

// Storage backend for sessions. Available backends: database, redis
$config['session_backend'] = 'database';
$config['session_redis_server'] = 'localhost';
$config['cache_apc_global_ttl'] = 0;
$config['cache_xcache_global_ttl'] = 0;

If I change 'file' at line 118 to 'redis' my store closes.

Not sure why but on my server when I lookup if Redis is enabled I see this

# for phpver in $(ls -1 /opt/cpanel/ |grep php | sed 's/ea-php//g') ; do echo "PHP $phpver" ; /opt/cpanel/ea-php$phpver/root/usr/bin/php -i |grep "Redis Support" done
PHP 55
Redis Support => enabled
PHP 56
Redis Support => enabled
PHP 70
Redis Support => enabled
PHP 71
Redis Support => enabled


So why does CS Cart V4.6.3 not work with redis as backend cache ?
