Free Pickup Option On Items Which Have A Shipping Freight Fee

10 September 2018 - 06:36 AM



We have a slight issue with some of our items which are long and expensive to ship. 


For these items we add say $10 to the "shipping freight" option in the item details. 


This adds $10 to the total freight amount and works well. 


However, we also offer "free" pickup for local customers, these customers often purchase items and select local pickup option which is setup to be free under shipping methods. 


For those items which have extra freight added, the extra freight gets added to the total even for local pickup. 


Now we have customers calling us up and wanting to place orders over the phone because they dont want to pay the extra fee... which they shouldn't. 


We would like all orders placed via the online shop which makes things much easier when picking up etc.


Is there a way around this? 

Show Products On The Same Line Within Category

30 April 2018 - 02:00 AM



I want to show "group" certain products on the same "line" when using "GRID" view. 


Grid view is the nicest for our store so we are using it by default and disabling the other views. 


The issue we have now is that sometimes a customer will not see another product of similar type which is on the next line. 


We have a grid of 4 products per line. 


I have enabled manual sorting by position and edited the positions. 


The problem is that sometimes if there are two similar products on position 8 and 9, the 8th product will be on the 2nd line and 9th on 3rd line (4 items per line...)





Line 1 (product 1, 2, 3, 4)

Line 2 (product 5, 6, 7, 8 )

Line 3 (product 9, 10, 11, 12)


I want product 8 and 9 to be on the same line, however there are other products in the category and they are in positions 1 to 7, they cannot be moved anywhere else due to how we setup each product type. 


So ideally there would be functionality to insert a blank line (product?) into spot 8 to move product #8 to #9 and put it on the same line as 9 etc. 


To overcome this I've created a blank dummy product which sits at position 8 and this moves product 8 to the 3rd line (becomes product 9) so its together with product 9 which is now product 10...


I would have to do this in each case where products are not on the same line for each category. 


This means creating quite a few dummy products per category if the category has over 100 items etc. 


Cannot find any addon like this... any suggestions? 

Inodes Increase Since Upgrading To 4.7.1 (From 4.6.3)

27 February 2018 - 12:19 AM



We upgraded from 4.6.3 to 4.7.1 on January 29th and since then our INODES usage has exploded and we are having to clear the cache every 2 weeks or earlier. 


Seems the new version is caching a lot more files than before and our limit is 250,000 files.


What can be done about this without going to the next level of hosting plan which is double in price.... Inodes is the only issue as space is ok and we are hardly using any of the hosting resources. 


On 4.6.3 we were constantly at approx 130,000 inodes for months without clearing cache. 


Since upgrading to 4.7.1 the indoes jumps from 77,000 after clearing cache to over 200,000 within 10 days or so.
