#235367 Short Description Always Blank

Posted by djhosken on 20 November 2015 - 09:27 PM in General Questions

Hi, I am trying to display the short discription on my category pages. In previous V3xx this worked fine. But, for new version 4.3.4 "$product.short_description" is always blank? I have added following lines to the tpl files I want the short description to appear in:

{$product.short_description nofilter}

But, nothing is displayed. Have checked in debugger, and "$product.short_description" template variable is always blank.


Do I have to enable "$product.short_description" to be populated with data somewhere? Seems like the php code is not copying the short description to this variable.

#233594 eBay integration

Posted by djhosken on 27 October 2015 - 09:33 PM in Upcoming features

Hi, here is the list of improvements in Ebay add-on we are working at:
Configuration & Management:

  • Ability to assign Ebay category with CS-Cart category - so in one template there could be products from different ebay categories (at the moment one template can export products only to one Ebay category)
  • Each template will have a link to all products assigned to it. We will add Ebay template to products search in Admin area.
  • We will add ability to add products to template using mass-editing feature and "Add Products" picker on the template page.
  • We will add new field "Ebay price" - so you will be able to set different product price for Ebay.
  • All Ebay fields for the product (price, name, description) could be updated with mass-editing and Import/Export.


  • You will be able to export a certain products or all the products from a template.
  • On the manage products list - there will be a new column Ebay status for the products that were exported to Ebay.
  • The Error log will have all the details about export. After each export you will get the notice how many products were exported successfully, how many products had warning or errors.
  • Integration of Ebay actions: add/relist/revise/close item.

If you have some thoughts regarding you are welcome to post it here.

Uservoice ideas:

Mass-editing of Ebay properties - https://cscart.userv...scription-to-th
Add Ebay fields to Export/Import - https://cscart.userv...lds-to-the-avai


Any update when this new eBay addon will be available?

#233474 Changing currency rate changes old order invoices ?

Posted by djhosken on 26 October 2015 - 05:42 AM in General Questions

Has this been fixed yet? I am in the process of upgrading our store, and this was one of the few really annoyiing bugs contained in CS Cart. Can not believe it hasn't been fixed yet. All that has to be done is that the currency and currency rate should be stored with each order. Else, there is no way to reproduce old invoices with correct values. Clearly a bug.

#233472 Is Localization Still Supported

Posted by djhosken on 26 October 2015 - 04:23 AM in Store Design & Templates

Thanks for reply! I would like to know if it is wise using it for new developments though? In this official CS Cart post from 2016/06, Imac from CS Cart replied:


This is depricated feature in CS-Cart.
We recommend use storefronts instead of localizations.

#233464 Is Localization Still Supported

Posted by djhosken on 25 October 2015 - 11:44 PM in Store Design & Templates

Hi, I am upgrading my store. Used localization in previous version to show selected banners in some countries, and not others. For example, when customer is from Australia, will ship "Free shipping above AUD50" and other banners. Seems like localization is however not supported any more? Is this correct?


Seems like can still enable it in "config.local.php" file. Can someone please let me know if I should use this feature, or will it be completely removed in future releases? I works really great for current version 4.1.5, and I use it for all sorts of stuff. Showing banners, price with GST for Australian customers and other stuff.
