#311005 My Cs-Cart Is To Slow

Posted by poppedweb on 12 January 2019 - 09:44 PM


I didn't want to do that since it was a key element of the query, but did it to see what would happen.  Query time went from about 8 seconds (for the stripped down query above) to just under 3 seconds.   So that does help -- BUT, i also have to take out the ORDER BY PRODUCT.   Below is the EXPLAIN plan for the query without the Product Description table.


Well, seeing that it is still not using an index, I suggest you contact us here, so we can take a look at what we can do for you: sales@poppedweb.com


With 15M products, you will need a quantum computer...


No, he should actually add indices / indexes to sort his table and use a cluster to distribute them across the stack accordingly

#307789 Modern Updated Vendor Admin Panel?

Posted by poppedweb on 17 October 2018 - 08:05 PM

CS-cart's admin interface looks old, tired, antiquated 


Any ideas about modern vendor admin panel?


I am surprised this hasn't been done for CS-cart




Anyone modified it? Integrated bootstrap admin panel?


A backend doesnt need to be all pretty and stuff, it just needs to work and be developer friendly. No animations and shenanigans.

#307621 Different Invoice Templates To Choose From

Posted by poppedweb on 15 October 2018 - 08:23 AM

This can only be done via the database. 


Just add a new entry with the following sql statement (execute in PHPMyAdmin).

  cscart_template_documents (`type`, `code`)
  (packing_slip, default_2);

#307482 Meet Cs-Cart And Multi-Vendor 4.9.1

Posted by poppedweb on 11 October 2018 - 06:36 PM

We searched the bug tracker but couldn't find the bug report you were referring to. Could you please give a link to the bug report (or, if you reported the issue via Help Desk, the ID of the ticket)? Then I'd be able to comment more on this matter.

I assume you're referring to this entry:

[!] Responsive admin panel: Design: Templates: One of the scroll bars was next to the wrong area. Fixed.
As far as I can see, that bug was fixed on September 5th after a report made by another person on August 21st.

Yes, the 45-day countdown begins since the moment the bug receives the Confirmed status. We now have a page on our site that explains where the timeframe comes from. The Under Review status is supposed to be reserved for cases that require a longer and more thorough investigation. It is supposed to be used sparsely, and only when a situation calls for it. We've taken some steps to that end, and as I can see, in the past few months there were fewer and fewer bug reports to get this status.



I first mentioned this directly in the thread of the responsive admin panel on february:



Next I mentioned it again in the bug tracker on april:


#307403 Meet Cs-Cart And Multi-Vendor 4.9.1

Posted by poppedweb on 10 October 2018 - 02:29 PM


Thank you,


I do see that the template editor double scroll bar has finally been fixed, I wonder however why it took such a long time, I submitted this bug at 28 February 2018 - 07:39 PM. Please do fix these insanely long times to respond to such simple issues.

#306203 Changes On My_Account.tpl Won't Take Place

Tried now, made no difference.


Maybe you have an add-on that overrides that particular template?

#304609 Urgent Security Issue

Posted by poppedweb on 27 July 2018 - 04:46 PM



As far as I can see eval or similar functions are not used on usernames, hence this wouldnt be a security risk. You can always ask CS-Cart this question, provided you give them access to the required information. Next time, please dont use a misleading title like this, this indicates you have a 'urgent security risk' instead of a 'possible security risk', see how that changes the enitre meaning of your post?


Kind regards,

#303064 Would You Advise Hosting Csc On Digitalocean?

Posted by poppedweb on 22 June 2018 - 01:55 PM

What about people like us who dont have system administrators in our team and want managed solutions? Is Digital Ocean recommended for us? Or are there server management providers for Digital Ocean droplets?




We would be happy to manage your droplet and configure it the way you desire to. We mostly use our own platform but if you want to keep control of your own server then that's perfectly fine. If you're interested, drop us a line at: info@poppedweb.com.


Kind regards,

#302388 Would You Advise Hosting Csc On Digitalocean?

Posted by poppedweb on 05 June 2018 - 06:04 PM

I am considering to move from my dedicated server to digital ocean.

Would you advise for or against this? Please explain why.

Does anyone have experience with CSC on digitalocean?

Are there companies of repute that specialize in managing CSC on DO?




We use DigitalOcean for our development and project tracking software. There is just one thing to keep in mind, if you do host your website overthere, I strongly advise you to use the compute optimized droplets since their performance will be significantly higher.


If you need any assistance, please drop us a line: info@poppedweb.com

#302091 Best Seo Add-On

Posted by poppedweb on 29 May 2018 - 05:21 AM

A very valid question that inadvertently highlights a fundamental flaw in the current cs-cart.

I don't feel like the Lone Ranger in expressing my humble opinion that SEO/SEF/SEM should be an integral part of Cs-cart.

Relying on Third Party addons for Critical function is an un-helpful. Cs-cart architects obviously don't share this opinion.

I don't think there would be many cart owners out there that would want less than the best SEO available.

Now I need to become an SEO expert so that I  can choose the right addon(s) !




Most of these issues are theme related (e.g. not tagging descriptions, images, etc.), hence CS-Cart doesnt update it. They only upgraded their themes and never have started from scratch (which they should really do). That will be the only way to fix this issue.


However, I would like to remind you that most ecommerce platforms come with no to little SEO capabilities and that these advanced seo tools (except for the JsonLd) isnt necessarily required for SEO. With unique content and a lot of social activity, you may come a long way!


Kind regards,

#300780 Alexbranding - Premium Cs-Cart Template Unitheme

Posted by poppedweb on 25 April 2018 - 11:55 AM


Hello here's Yvana  

A quick question to especially alexbranding before I pull my hairs out..  
Our designer created a .gif based banner, but when I upload it as an AB:advanced banner it doesn't show as .gif but is converted to .png.

What went wrong? I have no idea where to c hange this! 

AB: Advanced





Go to Settings > Thumbnails and change 'Thumbnail format' accordingly. Also, I think code customization would be required as in this particular case, CS-Cart should directly use the source, instead of the 'thumbnail' it generates nonetheless.


Kind regards,

#300045 How Good Are The Cs-Cart Themes Sold In "themeforest.net"

Posted by poppedweb on 11 April 2018 - 03:09 PM



I have seen several good themes in themeforest.com:



But I am not sure about how good they are .. any idea or experience ??




I really can't tell. I have seen proper themes and very bad ones. Same applies to add-ons, some didnt even take the time to properly integrate everything and used preg_match / preg_replace to put their own elements in there (which is basically the worst thing to do). 


The only thing you can really do is buy it there and when it doesn't fulfil your expectations, ask for a refund.


Kind regards,

#299714 Do You Use Control Panel To Manages Servers Yourself?

Posted by poppedweb on 04 April 2018 - 06:55 PM



Really don't know about this one. We have created a bunch of bash scripts which do most of the work for us. They do everything from backing things up, clearing the cache, optimizing database.


Furthermore, the general CLi fits better in the workflow of our company. We all use linux due to its more stable nature and because we are able to run certain programs locally (instead of doing all kinds of funky stuff on windows). Lastly, we also use linux as it is way more secure.


So I guess it really depends on your developer. A control panel can be useful, but using / learning the CLI has more advantages over the long run.


Kind regards,
