#344959 Moving Old Products To More

Posted by JohnCarroll on 02 January 2022 - 03:56 PM

Hi CS-Cart team,


I have a big problem. The server has slowed down due to the large number of products. On the other hand, this number of products have no special use and many of them are old. But our products are unique and we need their history and we can not delete them. Is it possible for you to specify an option in the product called Archive? To move the product there ?! In this way, the tables of the product and its accessories are lightened. And old products are removed from the main list of the site. On the other hand, whenever a user wants to access a particular product through a specific search or invoice, there is no problem. And it is possible that the Google index and Yandex will not be lost. And the product link is live.


Thanks your kind attention!

Is there a possibility to attach (upload) a (PDF) document to an order (for the administrator). Background: an invoice created by an external system is to be attached to CS Cart order by the administrator.


Looking forward to your answers!

#333211 Making Cs-Cart To A Private Shopping Website

Posted by JohnCarroll on 05 November 2020 - 12:48 PM

Hi all,


I am working on a new project - a shopping website- which will be closed to all normal visitors. 

Only logged customers will see the categories, products, prices, pages, etc. 

Normal visitors will see a simple page and login panel etc. 


New user will be only invited with a special link ( or all registrations will be approved by admin).


I wonder if there is a add-on or any method to convert Cs-cart to this kind a shopping club.

#324588 Is It A Bug In 4.11

Posted by JohnCarroll on 11 February 2020 - 11:35 AM



in all previous versions there was a field to manually set "Initial order ID"


It should be in in Settings-General, but in 4.11 its not there. https://healthix.eu/images/111.jpg



Any Idea, is it a bug or we are not able to set order ID manually anymore?

#315918 Meet Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.1 With New Checkout And Product Variations

Posted by JohnCarroll on 31 May 2019 - 07:06 AM

I see that you already had a discussion with Ilya regarding it (and Darius mentioned it too). I think it all depends on how many people express interest in something like this.

This is something I need, I sell a lot of goods to companies and the majority of the time the shipping/delivery address is different. This includes fields like first name, last name, phone number


Without the ability to define different shipping/delivery address fields then the latest version of cs-cart would not be suitable for my needs and there would be no requirement for me to extend my license.


Regarding the phone mask I think the new format is going to confuse my customers and cause shopping carts to be abondanded

#283694 Facebook Store Implementation

Posted by JohnCarroll on 31 August 2017 - 11:17 AM

If I recall correctly it you can connect your cs cart store to your facebook account. But I cannot find the how to DIY implementation anywhere.

Was I wrong, do you have to pay a license to CS Cart (Simtech) or do you need a specific addon ??


Try this: http://docs.cs-cart....cebook_app.html


Says it is free here: http://blog.cs-cart....-cs-cart-4-4-1/

#277279 Free Shipping

Posted by JohnCarroll on 20 May 2017 - 04:14 PM



I have some products with free shipping that I need to

exclude from some shipping methods and locations.


The items have a weight more than the maximum set in my shipping methods

but when customer is calculating shipping costs in basket all shipping methods still show up. 



Thanks Tony

#269485 Abandoned/live Carts Default Sorting

Posted by JohnCarroll on 27 January 2017 - 05:11 PM

How can I change the default sorting to sort by Date in Descending order.

I believe on prior versions the file was located public_html/app/controllers/backend/cart.php

but the same file in the current version is so much smaller.




find: $sorting = db_sort($params, $sortings, 'customer', 'asc');

replace with; $sorting = db_sort($params, $sortings, 'date', 'desc');


it is on line 8449 on cs-cart v4.4.2

#233326 Cs-Cart Categories V2 Vs V4

Posted by JohnCarroll on 22 October 2015 - 10:43 AM


I've got a problem with the categories URLs. Since for some reason cs-cart version 4 has categories shown withouth .html suffix and ended with a "/" and my older cs-cart v2 have htmls, mapping several houndreds of categories  from one URL to another would be a huge pain. Is there a work-around this problem?

I'd prefer not to do 301s, but just make cs-cart v4 add the .html by standard.

#208225 Paypal And Resellers

Posted by JohnCarroll on 18 March 2015 - 08:25 AM

I tried to buy a 1yr licence a couple of weeks ago, as soon as it took me to Bluesnap payment page I cancelled the transaction, too many complaints against them charging cards when they are not authorised to do so.

Not updated my licence yet and will not do so until CS-Cart offer a better payment method.

#164330 Style the Registration Form

Posted by JohnCarroll on 25 June 2013 - 10:36 PM

I am styling the registration form and I would like to add a css class to the password and confirm password text boxes. On most form items you can add it in the admin customer/profile fields. But password and comfirm password are not there. Can someone please tell me where I can find them?

you will need to edit the template file which is /skins/<your_skin>/customer/views/profiles/components/profiles_account.tpl

#160831 CS-Cart 4 Beta is Released

Posted by JohnCarroll on 27 April 2013 - 08:17 PM

Is there any documentation for addon developers?
Going from V2 to V3/Ultimate was a disaster. If V4 is not compatible with V3 from an addon perspective, it's going to take a long time and several price increases to manage 3 different versions (2, 3, 4).

Please advise.

Need details like DB schema changes as well as deprecated functions and new methodologies to be used in place of deprecated functions/classes.
