Importing v2.2.4 to v3.0.2 misses products, orders, etc.

28 July 2012 - 08:31 PM

2.2.4 community import to 3.0.2 Ultimate does not import everything. The message says "Import successfully finished" but not true. I have increased memory to 90M and execution time to 50000 - but don't get any error messages anyway??. Tried 6 times now - even tried it with a new installation of 2.2.4 and only a couple of products and one order and that doesn't get imported fully.

Parts imported successfully are: Categories (structure and description/metadata but no images), shipping, payment methods, product features, banners, taxes, locations, website-content.

Failed to import: Products, product combinations, product images, category images, orders, order items, users, profile fields, global options, promotions, SEO rules.

Also it looks like settings, countries and order status' weren't imported (although they may not be anyway).

Sorry for the long list - hopefully this will narrow-down where it went wrong (perhaps there is a security setting that needs to be removed for the import to work). Still, strange that the resulting message is "Import successfully finished".

Does anyone have any ideas (please!) or also had this problem as I had allocated this weekend to setting up 3.0.2 and would very much like to start making some progress.

Configuring payent methods for each currency

18 July 2012 - 09:49 PM

Does anyone know how you configure a payment method so that it is only available for a specific currency that the customer has selected? E.G. to only accept cheques in Sterling and not Euros?

Also, with Paypal Pro you select the currency when setting up the payment method - so you need to create multiple Paypal Pro Payment methods - one for each currency - but then they all show up for all currencies :confused:

Is this a bug in 3.0.1 Ultimate or is there a setting I have missed where you configure which payment methods show for each currency?

Sales Report Table - Product Name Too Short To Identify Product

13 April 2012 - 05:30 PM

With the sales report having a table view of products, it only shows the first 20 or so characters of the product. Many of our products start the same and therefore it is impossible to see which product is which.

Is there a way to either extend how many characters are shown or, preferably, to replace the product name with the product code?

Multistore Language

29 December 2011 - 12:55 PM

I have installed english and french and in the "languages" page it shows both languages "active" when all stores are selected. When you select an individual store, only English is shown as an available language - french does not appear. How do you enable languages for the individual stores?

Should you add language to URL when first building a store

29 November 2011 - 10:45 AM

I have had a start with CS Cart Community and am in the process of building multiple sites which will in the future be upgraded to professional or, more likely, multi-store and have different languages for each page (I will be translating all pages and product text) and want each language to be associated with different regions. Is the recommended way to show the language in the URL so that search engines can easily identify which pages are relevant to which regions? I notice if you do this on the community edition it changes the pages for English (I would have thought that the show language would be just for the additional languages, so you could add languages without impacting on your current store - but it doesn't appear to work like this).

If I will have to change all the pages / links in the future, I would rather start now by showing language in the URL, however when I tested this I did have a lot of concerns about how it worked i.e. existing links to pages without the language in the URL were serving the home page when numbers or other characters were in the URL. This will also require .htaccess redirection to move existing pages to ones with the language in the URL, which didn't work as it was adding ?sef_rewrite=1 to the end of the URL (and bug fix to CS Cart for showing the home page for old links). Although it would be a pain, I would rather build the store in the format recommended for future language expansion (but cannot understand when you expand to add languages that CS Cart also adds the language to the existing store).

Would it be better if CS Cart was able to show languages in the URL for just the additional languages so existing stores can add languages without changing existing URLs and links? If CS Cart was to work like this in the future, we can build the store now without Language in the URL and then use this option when adding languages, without changing the existing site (which appears to be the logical expansion of a store).
