Disregard - I found that last little piece I was missing. Thank goodness.

#330260 V4.11.1 New Owlcarousel Image Viewer

Posted by Angeltown on 05 August 2020 - 02:35 PM

About the issue with OwlCarousel in particular. Of all the image viewers that existed in CS-Cart by default, OwlCarousel was the only one that adhered to modern web requirements. Other default viewers were at a disadvantage to OwlCarousel (for example, they didn't support swiping on touch-enabled devices), and that's why they were removed.

There are plans to look into adding other image viewers. Currently, it's planned for December, unless something changes.


It is now AUG 2020 and OwlCarousel is the ONLY option in CS-Cart 4.11. We are a digital ART website and OwlCarousel is so unattractive it's actually embarrassing to use it. Next time you might want to find good solutions BEFORE you remove a bunch of features people are using - even if you're removing them for legitimate reasons.


I need an update on the status of whatever alternatives you're adding, please. 

#288705 Admin-Only Product Categories

Posted by Angeltown on 15 November 2017 - 03:21 PM

If not, how best for store admin to choose unique sets of vendor products to present to customers?


We have used product tagging in the past, but they have recently been effectively removed from the application.


Surely the need for product curation is not unique just to our shop?



We created our own massive set of product categories that we call "collections". We use it to curate coordinating products created by a single or multiple vendors. We maintain it completely manually though. 


How hard would it be to simple add a matching classname to the category controls?


Then we could just hide all the individual category controls we want from vendors using just css.


What I did was add a bit of code to the template that notes the category ID in the class, then used css to hide the ones I want hidden. Not ideal but it definitely worked. 


Using that approach, you'd obliterate the boundaries between business logic and presentation.  Not a good way.


Proper way would be to add a property to categories in MVE thatindicates the vendor permissions.  I.e. hidden from, read-only, read/write (default read/write).  then utilize the get_category/update_category type hooks to honor that flag appropriately.


We'd love to do it that way, for both vendors & admin, but do not know how. There is a SIGNIFICANT need for a much more comprehensive user group based permissions system. The default permissions options are seriously inadequate for large teams with very specific, limited roles. 


The built in inclusive categories restrictions (now in Vendor Plans) is likewise unsustainable even by import / export. We have thousands of categories that change often. The only way it would work for us is if we could only list the categories we'd like to exclude, rather than include. Also we don't allow vendors to put products directly in our parent categories; the ability to block that automatically would be fabulous. 


Considering how many people post on this forum asking how to hide specific things in vendor / admin, it really surprises me there isn't a great add-on available to handle all of these permissions issues. We'd certainly buy an affordable add-on, but our budget for custom work goes to more critical functionality issues rather than things like this that are simply highly inconvenient.

#209374 Subcategories On Cs-Cart Marketplace

Posted by Angeltown on 28 March 2015 - 07:34 AM

As a customer that has recently been browsing & shopping that area, I'd like to add the function that's most needed is the ability to search only add-ons or only themes. If you can do it now it's not obvious how. I've searched several times and I get very tired of weeding through themes to find the add-on we need.

#208593 How To Make Bigger The Mini Thumbnails Size

Posted by Angeltown on 20 March 2015 - 09:27 PM

Does some one can show me how to make bigger the mini thumbnails image size on the product detail pages please?(see image for the detail) I could find any setting on the admin back office for this one.

For some strange reason there's not an admin setting for the mini thumbs. Go to Design -- > File editor, then :
templates / views / products / components / product_images.tpl

It's the very first line (you can see I've changed mine to 95 from the default of 35) :
{assign var="th_size" value="95"}

And in the default responsive theme they're also restricted by css size, so you have to add a custom css rule as well :

.ty-product-thumbnails__item { width: 95px;}

#207423 How to enable by default reviews to products on cs-cart v3.x

Posted by Angeltown on 09 March 2015 - 06:00 AM

Edited : /design/backend/templates/addons/discussion/views/discussion_manager/components/allow_discussion.tpl

changed :

<option {if $discussion.type == "B"}selected="selected"{/if} value="B">{__("communication")} {__("and")} {__("rating")}</option>
to :

<option {if $discussion.type == "B" || !$discussion}selected="selected"{/if} value="B">{__("communication")} {__("and")} {__("rating")}</option>

and :

<option {if $discussion.type == "D" || !discussion}selected="selected"{/if} value="D">{__("disabled")}</option>

to :

<option {if $discussion.type == "D"}selected="selected"{/if} value="D">{__("disabled")}</option>

Thank you! Worked beautifully in MV 4.2.4
