#165069 Category Images v4.0.1

Posted by knoxbury on 09 July 2013 - 02:17 PM

Please add this back in CS-Cart! In fact category images should be IMPROVED, not REMOVED! I wish the category images would show next to the subcategory names when in a main category.


#140210 Order Variables

Posted by knoxbury on 09 July 2012 - 03:35 PM

I need to retrieve the Order Number and the Customer Email Address on the order confirmation page. Does anyone know what variables I would use to retrieve this information? For example, {$order_info.total} would return the order total . . . now what is the equivalent for order number and customer email (from the order)?

1) The release delay is just the beginning of the problems with a 3rd party service.

2) Searchanise will not support "redirect" which is an absolute MUST in any search addon. Magento and paid search services always include the ability to redirect the user to a certain page when a certain term is typed.

3) Searchanise is product level only and will not return categories. Again, a must in any decent search.


Too bad CS-Cart won't listen to customers. I'm stuck in one of the sites I have, but my next ecommerce site will definitely not be run on CS-Cart, mainly because of bad decisions like this and Twigmo.


#136476 Searchanise

I also don't see what all the fuss is about. Searchanise is an option (you don't have to use it), cs-cart thinks it's a good product, and people have to pay a little bit of money for it. If it's good, I'd be happy to do so but I have to say I'm also not really a fan of having my software run on another server even though there is a safety net (normal search will be used)


The fuss is that the default search functionality is not good at all compared to modern standards of search. For example, I still can't redirect a specific search term to a specific page like competitors allow. And so with limited functionality in the default install, Searchanise will basically be required de facto because of the need for better search. And the problem with Searchanise is that it's a 3rd party that runs on a different server and will eventually be an ongoing expense.

CS-Cart should focus on building a great all-inclusive cart. And if they want to offer services, then offer a hosted edition.


#118365 How Do I Change This?

Posted by knoxbury on 27 July 2011 - 02:44 PM

Thanks, that works great. Also, I was experimenting with putting the google plus one button in this space, but when I do, it causes a smarty error. Any idea how I could get the google plus one button to work in this area since it's a script?

Never mind, I just figured it out . . . encompass the plus one code with the {literal} tag.
