#160987 CS-Cart 4 Beta is Released

Posted by wartornskull on 29 April 2013 - 11:04 PM in News and Announcements

wartonskull > your reply > Thanks - should be fine I know but have had issues with AuthType Basic protected sub-directories conflicting with the SEO/SEF re-writing. Had to perform workaround to get it to work.

Yeah I had the same issue the other day when setting up a test store, if you disable the htaccess protection temporarily while you enable the SEO addon then re-enable the protection everything should work fine, at least it did for me. Just wouldn't enable the addon with the protection active.

#160730 Can't activate SEO addon

I've noticed this issue also tends to occur when you have the website behind basic access authentication for development / testing purposes.

EDIT: Oh whoa....sorry for the old topic bump.

#160658 CS-Cart 4 Beta is Released

Posted by wartornskull on 25 April 2013 - 03:33 PM in News and Announcements

Just a quick question... will this beta instal/operate etc. in an .htaccess protected top level directory using AuthType Basic?

i.e. /home/user/public_html/[protected by .htaccess]

Keen to try it but will need it 'hidden' / protected...

Yeah it should work fine mate, you will just need to amend the root .htaccess file with your auth details.

#157882 Despatch Bay

Posted by wartornskull on 16 March 2013 - 02:55 AM in Developers' Corner

I also have several clients who use Despatch Bay, I've integrated it into several systems now just not any cs-cart instances unfortunately, so I probably won't be much help but it would be nice to see despatch bay integration added to cs-cart as its become widely used here in the UK.

#136246 Searchanise

Posted by wartornskull on 11 May 2012 - 12:52 PM in Upcoming features

Next, in addition to search requests, Searchanise processes all navigation requests(clicking on a category or a subcategory link) as well, which drastically reduces the load of the hosting server where CS-Cart is running. And our goal is to make it much much more cheaper to run a fast store with Searchanise rather than to use an expensive hosting to process high loads generated by search and navigation requests.

I too strongly disagree with this move, yeah its nice to have the option for using a 3rd party service to provide search results for people who may not be able to afford a half decent VPS or dedicated server, but saying that both VPS and Dedicated Servers are so cheap these days it shouldn't really be a problem.

I could see how this 3rd party service would be great for people on shared hosting, but another problem is that many shared hosting environments have cURL disabled (which I'm guessing is how the Searchanise works) which means they wouldn't be able to use Searchanise anyway.

With regards to the above quoted text about how Searchanise handles navigation requests, is this just for the search box? or will Searchanise handle the standard site navigation? because if thats what you mean't then again I strongly disagree with this move and sure hope you provide a fallback for people like myself who will not be using Searchanise.

Basically it feels to me like your trying to force/push people into using your new Searchanise service which for many reasons is the wrong thing todo, I've got no problem developing my own "Quick Search" module (which I am already doing as I'm integrating Solr for the faceted navigation and search) but when it was already part of CsCart for so long I don't feel like I should have to, In fact the Quick Search that was left in CS-Cart 3 RC5 or whatever version it was worked fine without any issues all it needed was a few css tweaks and that was all.
