String Of Brackets On Profiles.manage Page <<<<<<<<...

I'm seeing this on all my customer sites profiles.manage page.  Seems to be a single '<' for each line of the listing.  Anyone know where it's coming from?



Support For New Security Threat In Ez Admin Helper

28 April 2019 - 06:42 PM

I noticed on a couple of my client sites the presence of a new malware file.  It is located in the document root of the store and is called 'adminer.php'.   Comments read as follows:

/** Adminer - Compact database management
* @link https://www.adminer.org/
* @author Jakub Vrana, http://www.vrana.cz/

* @version 4.2.5

We have added support for diabling this file to our EZ Admin Helper addon.  It is available in version 4.9.33.  If you are a current EZ Admin Helper addon customer, you should be upgraded automatically in the next couple of days.  If you want to force the upgrade, you can use the following URL


which will force the upgrade to happen immediately.


If anyone wants to (or has the time to) unpack this file and publish what it does, feel free to contact me and I'll get you a copy.


New Feature To Ez Admin Helper

24 April 2019 - 03:34 PM

We added a simple, yet useful feature to our EZ Admin Helper addon.


The profiles.manage page (list of users) now shows an additional column titled "Recent activity". Each row for each user will have a 'Logs' link in that column.  Clicking it will take you to the logs listing filtered for that user only, most recent to oldest.


At $39.95, this addon is the best bargain for helping administer cs-cart.

The documentation (does not include this change) can be found at: https://ez-ms.com/docs/ez_maint.pdf

And the addon product details page is at: https://ez-ms.com/ez-maint.html

Marketplace link is: https://marketplace....t/ez-maint.html


Other great features of this addon are:

+ Ability to run any of the below tasks on a schedule of your choosing.

+ Optionally will email results

+ Can be run "on demand" as well


Operations/tools that can be run are:

+ Clear cache

+Clear template cache (V4 only) 

+Clear thumb cache 

+Clear logs (can specity days of retention - default is 30 days) 

+Clear statistics  (can specity days of retention - default is 30 days)

+ Clear carts

+ Backup site

+ Optimize database

+ Backup database

+ Update currencies

+ Monitor files

+ Force reset or user passwords 

+ Change admin url

+ Check detailed images (V4+ only - Cleans up unused images from images tables)

o Check security intrusions (V4+ only)

+ Sync orders and users (V4+ only) (moves orders for anonymous orders to users if they are registered)

+ Archive orders (V4+ only


As you can see, most everything you do on a regular basis is on one page and can be scheduled to run while you sleep or can be run on demand by one click.


Current version is 4.9.32.  If you are an existing customer, you should get updated automatically in the next day or two.  If not (or you're anxious) you can use the admin url parameters of


And it will upgrade you on demand.



Where Did The "rebuild Cache Automatically" Setting Go In 4.9.3?

Used to set this during development on the Design/Themes page but it's no longer there.

What am I missing?

Ez Tax Reporting Addon Updated

15 April 2019 - 06:45 PM

We've updated the EZ Tax Reporting addon.  Printing of the report is now supported.

Product details: https://ez-ms.com/ez...-reporting.html


It's that happy time of year in the US and Canada.  This reporting makes it easy to see sales taxes you owe broken down by the tax jurisdiction.  If you use our EZ Tax Jar addon (https://ez-ms.com/ez-taxjar.html) then all your tax responsibility is done for you. Both in the site wide tax report that shows both vendor and merchant tax liability and (depending on configuration) within TaxJar itself.  In the MVE version you can filter based on Merchant or Vendor tax responsibility.
