#197755 Little annoying quirks that have been in cs-cart forever and should be fixed

Posted by Onkel_Sid on 24 November 2014 - 01:10 AM

It irritates me that CS-Cart seems to code only for US customers. With the new "Call Requests" you must enter the phone number in a very special way. The same applies when you check out of the store. Phone number must be entered with 10 digits, or you'll get an error message. Hey, not all your customers are in the United States.

It would also be helpful if you could somehow separate themes and addons when you do a search. If you search for "banner" or "Checkout" you will get lots of hits with themes. If you are looking for an addon for banners its just frustrating to click thru all the themes.
And how about moderating the themes that are published on the site? A lot of the themes there are basically duplicates, with just small changes of colors. The same theme with 5 different header colors should be one theme. Anyone can change the color in the theme editor anyhow.

CS-Cart should really fix this. The topic been discussed in other threads on the forum. Sending passwords like this is illegal in several countries.

Any chance you can make the gallery work with reponsive templates?

#186893 Error Uploading Images

Posted by Onkel_Sid on 03 July 2014 - 09:08 AM

Thanks for answering, but this doesn't solve my problem.

Im trying to upload images directly in to the product-pages, not importing products, where i think your path would be the right one.

#186727 Error Uploading Images

Posted by Onkel_Sid on 01 July 2014 - 09:23 AM

Anyone else getting Error when trying to upload images to a product using the Server-button?

I have my images in: var/files/1

...but keep getting an error if the image is placed inside a folder, if its not in a folder it works. I have tried changing the permissions of the folders from 755 to 777, but still the same error. Uploading using the Local-button and URL-button works fine.

Im on 4.1.5

Bought this addon from 1clue.com


...and needed some extra features and tweaking. 1clue did offer great service, fast response, and a working product in a few days. Recommend their services 100%.

Very nice. If you could add an option for a caption-text over and/or under the thumbnails i know some ways i can use this add-on and would consider buying it.
And how about the possibility to add a link to the image?

There should be an easy way to edit the "My account" menu on top. Lots of stores dont use Compare or digital downloads, but it it is still visible in the drop down menu. As far as i know the only way to remove it is to comment it out in the template file. There should be a button or something in admin to enable/disable Downloads and Compare from that menu.

Also, who came up with the great idea to put a small CS-Cart logo in the Shopping Cart menu?

#178868 CS-Cart vs Zen Cart vs osCommerce

Posted by Onkel_Sid on 06 March 2014 - 12:22 PM

- The norwegian language pack that was included in CS-cart 3 was really bad, i had to rewrite almost everything, Language packs for OsC are much better.

I hope CS-cart will continue to evolve and become a faster system with less bugs, better language packs and more useful addons.

If you think the language pack was bad, you could contribute to make it better here:


Log in, and click on 4.1.3 and your translations will be included in the next version. The reason its probably better in OSC is that more people are helping out.

#177907 What To Do To Make Basic "search" To Look For "all Words" In...

Posted by Onkel_Sid on 20 February 2014 - 10:02 PM

To set quick search to search by "all of these words"

1. Open the file: /app/functions/fn.catalog.php

2. In this file add the following code:

if (empty($params['match'])) {

$params['match'] = 'all';


above this one:

// Search string condition for SQL query

Save the file, and replace the one on your server with the new one.

ALWAYS remember to backup.

You can ask our tech support to upgrade your store. In this case, you can be sure that everything will go smoothly.

How about updating the Knowledge Base with some instructions on how to upgrade in a safe and secure way. Then your support team can focus on more important things. The instructions in the Knowledge Base is for version 1.3.5 and feels a little outdated.

It would be helpful if someone from CS-Cart could confirm/unconfirm if the var-folder shold be allowed/disallowed in the robots-file.
