I took the plunge earlier today and it fixed a slew of problems I was having with IE.

Way to go CS-Cart!

Now they just have to integrate Thickbox and it'll be just about perfect for me!

I just upgraded from 1.3.5 SP1 to SP2 this morning. Everything appears to have worked perfectly! I did have a few simple mods in SP1, but nothing major.
Cs-Cart v1.3.5 SP2

Report back after you have tested everything. You may have a different point of view. LOL


Posted 07 January 2008 - 07:17 AM #15

I upgraded from cs1 to cs2 and all went as planned.

The install stopped at one point, and I had to do it again, but it worked the 2nd time. Probably lazy network..

I also forgot that my mysql database address is localhost not my url.... ding dong.....

Part from that works fine.

Don't upgrade yet as there seems to be bugs acknowledged by support.

Edit: To be fair they're now looking into it and recognise there are some bugs and are fixing them now :D
1.3.5 SP2 - Was Bugged...but support really pulled through on this one :D
