#303182 Cs-Cart Ultimate : Import / Export

Posted by Katrin Kopytina on 26 June 2018 - 01:18 AM


In the CS-Cart version 4.8.1, there is NO opportunity to make the EXPORT Theme.

Please return this function: EXPORT Theme, the function is very necessary.



#213856 Your Image Size Setting On Bigpicture_Template.tpl, Version 4.3.1

Posted by Katrin Kopytina on 10 May 2015 - 04:42 AM


I really liked the new template - bigpicture_template.tpl for the product page.
There are CS-Cart 4.3.1

I saw that my settings (from Admin Panel) for a big picture does not work!
Settings defined on page administrator - ?dispatch=settings.manage&section_id=Thumbnails

I want to share how to resolve this issue.

Open bigpicture_template.tpl
In directory:

Replace string:
{include file="views/products/components/product_images.tpl" product=$product show_detailed_link="Y" image_width=420 image_height=390 thumbnails_size=55}

To the string:
{include file="views/products/components/product_images.tpl" product=$product show_detailed_link="Y" image_width=$settings.Thumbnails.product_details_thumbnail_width image_height=$settings.Thumbnails.product_details_thumbnail_height thumbnails_size=55}

Now my settings for the icons work !

And do not forget to clear the cache for the changes to work.


#213855 Advanced Search Item Is Not On The Page "product Search"

Posted by Katrin Kopytina on 10 May 2015 - 04:08 AM


The "Advanced Search" item is not on the page "product search"
I think the advanced search is an important part of the page "Product Search."

I compared the template search.tpl for page "Product Search" version 4.2 and version 4.3.1

I made a change the template for the page "Product Search" to return the item "Advanced Search."

Open the template - search.tpl

Then, add the strings:
{if $search}
	{assign var="_title" value=__("search_results")}
	{assign var="_collapse" value=true}
	{assign var="_title" value=__("advanced_search")}
	{assign var="_collapse" value=false}

{include file="views/products/components/products_search_form.tpl" dispatch="products.search" collapse=$_collapse}

After string:
<div id="products_search_{$block.block_id}">

Now "Advanced Search" item is on my the page "product search" !

And do not forget to clear the cache for the changes to work.

#189173 CS-Cart Marketplace Is On!

Posted by Katrin Kopytina on 11 August 2014 - 12:09 AM

Suggestions for improving the Market - http://marketplace.cs-cart.com/

Main page should not be static.
Visitors should see that the market "is not dead."
Please create showing new products at home page .
This can be either block "New products" or can be sorting by new products.
Now, visitors will not find new products.
Items on the main page seems to remain there for life.
These products enhance and increase your rating and views, just because it's home page.

Please create Filter for products by type of business.
The shop owner is inclined to associate design (theme) with type of business.
We encountered in practice that shopkeepers can not present your product in a different design.
Many popular online marketplaces have Filters by type of business (Apparel, Food, Jewelry, Spare Parts, Tools, Photo Video etc.).

#176264 CS-Cart And Multi-Vendor 4.1.2 Released, Brings Google Chrome Fix, Security I...

Posted by Katrin Kopytina on 29 January 2014 - 08:24 AM

We have moved our themes from version 4.1.1 to version 4.1.2 for 1 hour.
There were no problems.
Now live demo for themes works on version 4.1.2

When migrating from version 4.0.3. 4.1.1 to require much more time. Because we have made our changes to some template files (.tpl). And we changed the content of live demo, added and changed blocks and styles: OwlCarousel, Features: our-brands, Block Benefits & Guarantees etc.

Thanks for the new features introduced in version 4.1.1 !

#176149 Styling Product Images

Posted by Katrin Kopytina on 28 January 2014 - 01:24 AM

Add the file Less, you have chosen (example facebook.less),
after line:
the following lines:
/*** view category: products_multicolumns ***/
td.preview-image {
  border: 2px solid #ccc;
td.preview-image:hover {
  border: 2px solid @menu;
/*** view category: products_without_options ***/
.product-container.list .product-item-image {
  border: 2px solid #ccc;
.product-container.list .product-item-image:hover {
  border: 2px solid @menu;
/*** view one product ***/
.border-image-wrap {
  border: 5px solid #ccc;
.border-image-wrap:hover {
  border: 5px solid @menu;

Then the image products will have a gray border, but when you hover blue (as menu color).

Thank you for your comment to our free templates.
Special thanks for your interest in our commercial templates. As well as a deep and systematic analysis of their strengths and weaknesses.

Please explain more specifically what is included in your concept of good quality template?

- Using the Google Web Fonts?
- Complex Patterns (fabric, plaster, wood)?
- Scene backgrounds?
- Torn and jagged edges of blocks, and buttons?
- The effects of raised characters and dent?
- The effects of shading units and menus?
- A variety of JQuery scripts?

Do I need to apply all possible techniques together in each template. Or just individually. What are the best patterns to trade - simple or complex. Whose work in the template should be more - a designer or programmer?

It is very important to know the views and needs of potential buyers. To improve our skills and improve the quality of templates.
