#322173 Products Not Displaying In Store.

Posted by termalert on 26 November 2019 - 04:56 AM

Some file must have gone missing when my host tossed all my existing store

files into a folder by mistake then put them all back to root ( due to my making too vague a request ).

All fixed.


This web host really does go above and beyond. 



Thank you for contacting us.

The default rewrite rules to the index page were missing, so I have performed some research and copied the ones from this forum:


which resolved the issue:

#310435 Can Softwaresuggest People Be Trusted ?

Posted by termalert on 25 December 2018 - 10:23 PM

Thanks johnbol1. It was possible that someone could have used my license number

to activate a cart and it might have 'appeared' that it was me doing it. I know I could

prove that I owned the license but my store could have been shut down temporarily. 

Contacted support and they re-issued my license and blocked the old one.

Potential problem solved. Note to self to take care in future.

Thank you. I will give it a shot when I feel brave enough :)

#300317 Can't Find The Order Confirmation Page.

Posted by termalert on 17 April 2018 - 02:46 PM

I know there is an order complete template but there is no way I would have edited THAT.

It's all in code ( which is something I don't touch ).

It's not a web site 'page' either.



Sorry to have troubled you guys. The text was in one of the 'blocks'...D'OH!!

#267676 Update: Critical Vulnerability In Phpmailer Library. Should Be Fixed Asap

Posted by termalert on 05 January 2017 - 12:15 PM

BarryH. My cart ( 4.3.9 ) php mailer suddenly stopped sending order notifications even though the right boxes were ticked.

Maybe it was the patch or a recent upgrade but not 100% sure. Out of the blue it just started working again...lol

#267556 Update: Critical Vulnerability In Phpmailer Library. Should Be Fixed Asap

Posted by termalert on 02 January 2017 - 10:42 PM

Whatever the reason for my php mailer not sending emails, it occurred after the cart was upgraded.

This is a fact. As to why I am only guessing.

#265012 4.3.3 To 4.4.10 Manual Import Problem.

Posted by termalert on 27 November 2016 - 12:21 AM

Hi guys. This time I will not spit the dummy and wipe out

my fresh install of 4.4.1 in a separate folder.
I am exporting data from 4.3.3 and importing into 4.4.1 


A question.

PHP 5.6.28

4.3.3 is running at great speed but not so 4.4.1
Does CS-Cart tend to run more slowly in a subfolder on shared hosting ?


A problem with manually importing products and images.

I have only imported two files to test with.

A single product and it's images ( no features or any other data ).

Product imported OK but only the main image gets imported.

Pair type M but not Pair Type A.

All url's are correct and images all visible in browser.

#262013 Problem With Paypal

Posted by termalert on 21 October 2016 - 09:09 AM

The buyer has probably used the back button after making payment.

It can screw things up badly.

Did you have CS-Cart set to send you emails of orders placed ?

If so ..keep them because they will be your only record.

It's not the fault of CS-Cart, just the way PayPal and CS-Cart talk to each other.

We got around it by setting a landing page in PayPal settings ( at PayPal ) so

that the buyer is taken back to your store automatically.

#232015 Cs-Cart Top 6 Reasons To Choose It

Posted by termalert on 06 October 2015 - 11:36 PM

Well, I spat the dummy and started up a trial at Bigcommerce.

After years of hosts blaming CS-Cart and vice versa I just wanted

some peace. I tried it before over the years ( as well as others ) but it can't hold

a candle to CS-Cart.

Bigcommerce fell short of CS-Cart in so many ways that I decided to stay.

CS-Cart really is the best value for money that I have found out there.

#230491 Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.3.4 Released

Posted by termalert on 19 September 2015 - 03:22 AM


when can I expect to see 4.3.4 in my upgrade centre.

'Refresh packages list' still revealing squat.

Not that I intend to upgrade myself.

Just wondering when I can call on my trusted new helper.

#229017 Reward Point Report.

Posted by termalert on 07 September 2015 - 02:56 AM

Maybe it's just the way my head is screwed on but I can't see an easy way

to find the total Reward Points across all users. Sure I can check each

individual customer's total usable points but I can't see a way of getting

a total for all users. 

#228609 Cs-Cart And Multi-Vendor 4.3.3 Released With Upgrade Center Improvements

Posted by termalert on 02 September 2015 - 01:18 AM

Sign of the times. We all want something NOW at the cheapest possible price.

I prefer slow, steady and stable any day of the week.

Give the guys a chance to beta test the latest version.

The crew at CS-Cart are most certainly very good at what they do

when they get the time but they are not true gods.

Having said all this I would much prefer no new bells and whistles

but have the guys go for a rock solid version with a routine for examining

our server for compatibility, stability and speed. 

#223386 What Feature Do You Think Is A Stand Out For Cs-Cart ?

Posted by termalert on 17 July 2015 - 01:13 PM

'Promotions' is hands down ( for me ) CS-Cart's USP.
( that's Unique Selling Point ).
It is just plain brilliant and no other cart I have ever tried
can even come close to it's versatility.
What other carts have I tried ?
Shopify, Volusion, BigCommerce, Zen Cart, OScommerce, Cube Cart,
PrestaShop, AShop and X-Cart.

#220601 Subscription License Package 3 Monthly Instead Of Annually.

Posted by termalert on 27 June 2015 - 12:36 AM

$195 for 12 months subscription license is great value but 3 monthly would make it more affordable.
How about options like $195 annually, $120 for 6 monthly or $65 for 3 monthly.

#220025 Why Exactly Was Statistics Deprecated ?

Posted by termalert on 23 June 2015 - 07:58 AM

Fair comment but Statistics was onsite and more fun. I agree that compared to GA it is most likely a toy
but I liked it. You shouldn't take toys from children...lol
