I am afraid all points are not possible out of the box. It can be done with additional custom development work only


Thanks for the quick response. Do you know if there is anything already made in the app-store?  I couldn't find anything when I looked yesterday.

In Topic: Vivashop - Your Ultimate Responsive Cs-Cart Theme

18 June 2019 - 12:56 AM

This is not a theme bug. This functionality is based on the default CS-Cart code used on the list view of the category pages. So we have just added this functionality on the product pages as well.

The entire product short description is displayed with HTML tags. If the short description is missing, then the product long description is striped of HTML tags, then truncated to a smaller size. If the tags are not stripped, then there is a high probability of leaving unclosed tags during the truncate process which will affect the rest of the page. If the long description was not truncated then the full text of the description would be displayed and this could be very long for some products.

Is it possible to turn this off so that the long description does not show if short description is missing?  I found a work-around but I have to manually edit over 3,000 products.

In Topic: Meet Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.1 With New Checkout And Product Variations

I just wanted to add to the request to keep the billing address.  I am just getting started with CS Cart and have spent a lot of money to get up and running so I'm really not happy to read this discussion and fear losing my investment because the cart will no longer do what is required.


My store is in the US and for fraud protection we require the billing address be entered and matched to the bank's records.  If it doesn't match then the customer is declined. I have both b2b and b2c customers and both will frequently use a different ship to address.  I think the issue could easily be resolved with a check box that says shipping same as billing or just automatically make the shipping same as billing and if it's not then a check box that will open up for a shipping address. I see that on 98% of the online accounts I create.  As a customer, if I am shipping to a different address than my billing address I am not upset to have to enter two addresses at checkout.  However, if they are the same I like the ease of it just automatically populating the shipping fields.


I currently use authorize.net and PayPal for my processors.

Dear angelflores,
At this time, this modification can only be done through theme file customizations or through an add-on. In a future version of our theme we will be implementing an option to display either the subcategory slider or the default CS-Cart columns.
For now you may display the subcategories in 4 columns by following this guide (note that this guide was developed and tested on the current VIVAshop version 2.14):
Open the file: 


On line 62 you will find the code:

{if $subcategories}

Select everything until and including line 97 which contains the code:


Replace it with the following code:

{if $subcategories}
    <div class="clear-both subcategories">
        {foreach from=$subcategories item="category"}{strip}
             <div class="ty-column{$columns} space-bottom">
                <a href="{"categories.view?category_id=`$category.category_id`"|fn_url}" class="ty-center">
                    {include file="common/image.tpl" show_detailed_link=false images=$category.main_pair no_ids=true image_id="category_image" image_width=$settings.Thumbnails.category_lists_thumbnail_width image_height=$settings.Thumbnails.category_lists_thumbnail_height class="animate scale ty-mb-s"}
                    <span {live_edit name="category:category:{$category.category_id}"} class="ty-block">{$category.category}</span>

You may alter the number of columns by adjusting the $columns variable.
Save the file once you are finished and clear your server cache by adapting the link: yoursite.com/youradmin.php?cc&ctpl

Kind regards,


Has this option been implemented in version 2.26 or do we still use the template edit provided?

Hello Cindy


Maybe this our addon will be useful.



Best regards



Hi Robert,


This looks like it might work.  Could you answer a few questions about it?


1) Can I have this add-on applied to a product that also has standard options/variants on it?

2) Can I apply more that one instance of this add-on to a product?

3) Can I set up a text box that has a one time additional fee? Meaning if they order 10 of the item with this add-on filled in it won't be 10 x $5.00 it will only be $5.00.  It's basically a one time set-up fee.

4) Can I allow the customer to select an image to engrave?

5) Do you have a live demo?


If you'd like to see how I have it setup on our current shopping cart use this link:



Thank you,
