Totally Strange Behavior By Multivendor

Hi,



I have been creating stores and their products in my multivendor shop. all of a sudden, everything is behaving strangely, among:


  • Store “x” has 5 products created but only displays 2


  • I create a product for store “y” and it does not display
  • In the categories list in each vendor's page, when you clic on a category with a number of products (5), I am taken to that page but it says no products were found



    Anyone has experienced anything like this? I am afraid I will have to re install if it has to do with a bug or something.



    please help. Much appreciated

What is your cs-cart version number?

Thanks for your prompt reply. Version is 4.2.3. I did get a notice by cs cart saying there was a new version and I just installed it from the admin panel, but now strangely enough, when I enter the admin panel I get:



Warning[color=#C09853]Auto cache update enabled.[/color]



[color=#C09853]Modified files are tracked in real time (including the files modified directly on server) and re-cached.[/color]



[color=#C09853]Store performance may be slightly affected. Recommended to disable on production in the [/color]Themes[color=#C09853].[/color]



How do I fix this? Thanks a lot

You can turn off Rebuild cache automatically by going to the Design->Themes page if the site is live. Version v4.2.3 is the latest one for now.

New version of the same release? Is cs-cart up to their old tricks again?

If you are ready to provide us with the temporary FTP access, we can examine the issue. Thanks

What tricks would those be?

I am getting lots of “Access denied” even though I am signed in as super admin and even with a fast internet connection, it takes forever to load pages in the front and back sides. This really is a pain.

In 4.1.5 products assigned to specific usergroups are not displayed even to the super admins. May be you face the same issue in the new version?

Re-releasing archives named with the same release number but with different content. Hence you never know what you really have. Used to be common practice but they stopped quite a while ago. However, with the silence on the forums lately it would appear they are very busy and may revert to old behaviors to save face and not have to make an immediate 4.2.4. I can see upgrading the upgrade script on the fly. But the content of the system should remain the same.
