Changing LESS Styles With My_Changes Addon

07 November 2013 - 06:00 PM

Hello All,

I am trying to change some css styles for a theme I am working on in cs-cart 4.0.2 and am a little confused by the new LESS CSS used.

I have added my LESS CSS file following the cs-cart doc found here: http://docs.cs-cart.com/my-changes and have the following files created:

design > themes > basic > css > addons > styles.less
design > themes > basic > templates > addons > my_changes > hooks > index > styles.post.tpl

In "styles.post.tpl" I have the following code:

{style src="addons/my_changes/styles.less"}

In my "styles.less" CSS file I pasted the CSS from the "scheme.less" file, just to make experimentation easier. The "scheme.less" file I found in

design > themes > basic > css > scheme.less

Now for the issue, whenever I make a change to my styles.less file nothing changes on the site. I have cleared my browser cache, the cart cache and anything else I can think of....

Am I missing some vital step here or doing something wrong?

4.0.2 Form Builder Quirks / Bug?

21 October 2013 - 11:20 PM

Hello All,

I am having a few issues with the form builder and I was curious if anyone else is having similar issues.

1. When adding select box options, it sometimes, only allows for 5 options. If I try and add any more, sometimes it will delete one at random to add the latest one.

2. All changes to the "Form submit text" is ignored. I have cleared the admin cache, added &cc to the admin url and cleared the browsers cache and the form submit button still says the default "Submit".

Anybody have any ideas or thoughts?

4.0.2 Post Template Hook Did Not Override the Default Styles. Fixed .... O RLY?

07 October 2013 - 07:20 PM

Change log for 4.0.2 states:

Addons: CSS styles connected via a post template hook did not override the default styles. Fixed.

Nope, just added the my changes css post template hook and tried switching the body background color and it is overwritten by the default styles still.

Firebug shows that my custom css is being added to the standalone stylesheet, but unfortunately it isn't being placed at the very bottom, so some default cart styles are overriding mine still.

Brand new install of 4.0.2 with my changes add on.

4.0.2 Bootstrap16 & 12 CSS Files Not Used Anymore?

07 October 2013 - 05:03 PM

Hello All,

I was attempting to follow this KB article on making cs-cart responsive on a new install of 4.0.2 and my instillation has no "bootstrap_grid_16.min.css" or "bootstrap_grid_12.min.css" in the directory:


All I have are the following directories and files:

design > themes > basic > css > lib > bootstrap > less:
-- grid.less
-- layouts.less
-- mixins.less

I am assuming that version 4.0.2 ditched those files and now uses .less?

4.0.2 Install Fails Silently

06 October 2013 - 09:31 PM

I am attempting to do a first time install of cs-cart 4.0.2 and have followed the installation steps to the letter and when I click on the "Install" button in step 2 the modal with the progress bar pops up briefly (for like a second) then disappears. Nothing else happens. No error, no warnings, nothing...

I have tried the install in 3 different browsers and all have had the same result. I have also tried to install with the demo data and without it.

The host has confirmed the file permissions are set properly and I have verified all of the DB info and other settings...

I am completely baffled and out of ideas anyone have any thoughts on what might be going wrong here?
