#323341 Product Preview Takes Me Straight To Home Page.

Posted by termalert on 05 January 2020 - 07:16 AM in Issues & Troubleshooting

Thanks TTapio but I am scared of tinkering. I will just do manual SEO stuff because I only have 2 products.

Again, thank you very much for trying to help.




#322551 What Would Cause html?sef_rewrite=1 in URL?

Posted by termalert on 08 December 2019 - 02:30 AM in SEO

Same thing happened to me. All my 'preview' page links plus 'preview' new products went straight to my home page

When I hovered over the preview link I would see

https://www.mydomain...te-windows.html at the lower left ( which looked weird of itself )

yet when I clicked I was taken to my home page

https://www.mydomain.../?sef_rewrite=1

 

All the solutions in this thread messed with my head and as I only have

3 main product lines I disabled the SEO add on and all is well now.




#322540 Product Preview Takes Me Straight To Home Page.

Posted by termalert on 07 December 2019 - 12:24 PM in Issues & Troubleshooting

It appears that some form of buginess in the SEO add on has been giving

others problems so I thought I would disable it.

All my 'previews' work now.

 

As I only have 2 main product lines I can manually add the SEO stuff to
them and my pages.

 

I will leave this haunted SEO add on disabled for good.

 

Crapped me off that it just went buggy out of the blue but in fairness

to CS-Cart it most likely had to do with my web host fiddling with the htaccess file.




#322416 Product Preview Takes Me Straight To Home Page.

Posted by termalert on 04 December 2019 - 08:17 AM in Issues & Troubleshooting

Version 4.3.9 Using PC.

When I clicked on edit or added a product and clicked Preview from the drop down I could
see what the product would look like at my web site.

 

Not any more. All I get is my home page loading.

 

When I hover over the preview link I can see

https://www.mydomain...te-windows.html at the lower left

yet when I click I am taken to

https://www.mydomain.../?sef_rewrite=1

 

In fact any attempt to 'Preview' be it products or pages takes me to my home page. 




#322173 Products Not Displaying In Store.

Posted by termalert on 26 November 2019 - 04:56 AM in Store Design & Templates

Some file must have gone missing when my host tossed all my existing store

files into a folder by mistake then put them all back to root ( due to my making too vague a request ).

All fixed.

 

This web host really does go above and beyond. 

 

Hello,
 

Thank you for contacting us.

The default rewrite rules to the index page were missing, so I have performed some research and copied the ones from this forum:

#322172 Products Not Displaying In Store.

Posted by termalert on 26 November 2019 - 03:35 AM in Store Design & Templates

All appears well 'finally' since my store was given a new domain name.

A few problems because I didn't configure the store ( via admin ) with

the new domain name.

Admin area now working well, store front loads and all products displaying in admin.

Just one slight problem.

All the products that were displaying before in the store are now giving me

 

Not Found  

The requested URL was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

 

Just discovered that no home pages links ( Contact Us etc ) are are working
and giving the same error.

 

 

I must have forgotten something but just can't figure it out.




#322152 Where Did My Cloned Theme Go ?

Posted by termalert on 25 November 2019 - 09:13 AM in Store Design & Templates

Thank you so very much. Simtech should commission you to write their manuals.

#322123 Where Did My Cloned Theme Go ?

Posted by termalert on 24 November 2019 - 07:39 AM in Store Design & Templates

I have moved our main store to Shopify to qualify for BNPL systems.

 

I am going to use my old CS-Cart for another business.

 

Tried to change logo but couldn't.

 

Needed to clone the theme.

 

Did that following the manual now I can't find the bloody
thing in my themes area.

 

Shame the manual doesn't tell you what to do AFTER a clone is created.
Hang on...it does but what a load of confusing rubbish.
There are too many occurrences of manifest.json 

 

PLUS....
Why are there 3 groups of 9 identical themes in my themes area ???

 

Sometimes it's hard to love CS-Cart but I still do.
 




#321535 Request For Either Zippay Or Afterpay Addon

Posted by termalert on 07 November 2019 - 07:33 AM in Wishlist & Feature Requests

tbirnseth.

A happy day it will be if I can come back to CS-Cart.

I could buy a great theme and heaps of 'non-monthly' add ons

AND have a much faster cart for a lot less than I am shelling out now.

Maybe banks might be stirred into action by all these BNPL schemes

and approach integration from a different angle.




#320504 Request For Either Zippay Or Afterpay Addon

Posted by termalert on 03 October 2019 - 08:41 AM in Wishlist & Feature Requests

I currently have our CS-Cart parked on our old server.

I was not happy about having to move to Shopify just to get AfterPay

but there was not much by way of choice.

All the features that are native to 'out of the box' CS-Cart are paid add ons

at Shopify. Totally crapped off but the choice was taken out of my hands.

 

Nice to see a  ZipPay add on has been developed but in our case Zip wanted

nothing to do with sites that sell second hand goods.




#319784 Request For Either Zippay Or Afterpay Addon

Posted by termalert on 13 September 2019 - 06:34 AM in Wishlist & Feature Requests

It all boils down to different business models.
You guarantee your merchants goods and AfterPay lays
it off on the merchant.

Apology for getting a little hot under the collar.

Wishing you all the best in these times.

While waiting on LatitudePay we have onboarded with AfterPay as they were so much easier to deal with than your mob. 




#319515 Request For Either Zippay Or Afterpay Addon

Posted by termalert on 06 September 2019 - 08:14 AM in Wishlist & Feature Requests

Thanks Maclean_cherry for telling me the real reason our application was rejected.

"Hi there, it looks like this was rejected because you're selling second hand clothes online. Because we guarantee against customer disputes we can't extend it to second hand clothes."
I guess a customer purchasing a new item for an event with every intention of fabricating a return reason will be guaranteed. Good luck with that. 

 

To anyone reading.

If you plan to use BNPL and sell second hand clothing...forget it.

#319508 Request For Either Zippay Or Afterpay Addon

Posted by termalert on 06 September 2019 - 03:16 AM in Wishlist & Feature Requests

I don't doubt that given the number of applications your company receives that 'most' of it must be automated.

 

PM sent. 

 

It's a crying shame that you guys never played with Australian CS-Carts. There are just too few of them I guess and the population will only keep shrinking due to no plug ins for Australian BNPL.




#319494 Request For Either Zippay Or Afterpay Addon

Posted by termalert on 05 September 2019 - 08:58 AM in Wishlist & Feature Requests

Insert Zippay firmly inside your terminal orifice maclean cherry. After spending 2 solid weeks with 17 hour days populating and configuring a Shopify site for my wife your pathetic mob knocked her back and didn't even so much as intimate the reason why. LatitudePay is going to tear Afterpay and Zippay a new a-hole. The sooner the better.

 

btw on a side note CS-Cart's Reward points system puts ALL others to shame.




#318822 Problem With Exporting A Products .csv File.

Posted by termalert on 17 August 2019 - 04:37 AM in Issues & Troubleshooting

That did it. Thank you very much.

Copied and pasted the description html into a shop product file and it looked a bit messy so

replaced all these ' ' things ( that were scattered through the html ) with a space and all went well.

Thanks again The Tool for filling in the gaps that should be included in a trouble shooter.




#318820 Problem With Exporting A Products .csv File.

Posted by termalert on 17 August 2019 - 02:09 AM in Issues & Troubleshooting

A complete mess. Using OpenOffice Calc to open file.

Even tried exporting from SQL Database but still get the Product Description

broken into many columns.

#318819 Problem With Exporting A Products .csv File.

Posted by termalert on 17 August 2019 - 01:55 AM in Issues & Troubleshooting

I am just using an out of the box cs-cart.

Tried using the default semi colon but it is still a huge mess.

Selected 6 products.

My product description was segmented across 6 unnamed columns and

most of the column headers didn't have corresponding data types underneath.

I don't really see how this export file can be used for any useful purpose.




#318808 Problem With Exporting A Products .csv File.

Posted by termalert on 16 August 2019 - 03:51 PM in Issues & Troubleshooting

When I create the file the Description is broken into many columns

and not one single column containing the entire description.

Is there a setting to prevent this happening or is this just the way it is ?

 

Also the .csv file is messy with some values not lining up with the correct header.

eg The Product Description is broken up into pieces under Price, Cost Price, Retail Price & Sale Price.

Looks like the only option will be Zippay for CS-Carts in Australia.

At 5th August 2019

#318485 Afterpay

Posted by termalert on 04 August 2019 - 01:19 AM in General Questions

It's such a shame stevethi.

CS-Cart is just so feature rich out of the box but the pressure is most definitely on to get with the flow.

I have no idea why Australian CS-Cart users have been left out in the cold for what have been years now.

Maybe there are simply not enough of us to worry about.

We keep getting offers of 'custom' integrations but this means big bucks ( not for some but most certainly for me ).

Given what I have seen though, a custom integration would most likely be knocked back by Afterpay anyway. 




#318470 Afterpay

Posted by termalert on 03 August 2019 - 05:17 AM in General Questions

OK...Now I am wondering how many Australian CS-Cart user will have to

seriously consider saying good bye to their beloved cart and do what

they have always resisted. That is go to Shopify or Bigcommerce.

Yes, I know that they charge extra for what CS-Cart users currently

get included but the pressure is on to get with the flow or stay in a

stagnating pond.




#318469 Zippay - Australian Cs Cart

Posted by termalert on 03 August 2019 - 04:20 AM in General Questions

Is this one for real ??

https://marketplace....or-cs-cart.html

Most likely for real but Afterpay have indicated that 3rd party add ons will be knocked back :(




#318468 Zippay - Australian Cs Cart

Posted by termalert on 03 August 2019 - 04:12 AM in General Questions

The current situation for Australian CS-Cart users is that there is no buy now pay later

that integrates with CS-cart. Unfortunately this means that there is greater pressure

for Australian CS-Cart users to abandon CS-Cart in favour of alternatives like Shopify or

Bigcommerce.

I know that bundled add ons that come free with CS-Cart are paid extras with eCommerce

alternatives but the pressure is still there.

Is there any way that Simtech can approach all Australian CS-Cart users and pass the hat around

with a view to making an add on for say AfterPay or Zippay ??

This might involve all users upgrading to the latest CS-Cart but there must be a way.

Having a custom add on is quite simply beyond the means of most CS-Carts users.
