In Topic: Guests List Added To Profile

Different profiles is not really what is needed but just different shipping addresses. CSC created  when they indicated you can have a profile for home and one for business, is two different profiles under the same email address... which is in my humble opinion very rare if not non-existent. You don't want your boss to be able to review under your professional email address what you are buying for yourself and you don't want mixing up your personal email address with business related matters... well some people do ;)


I reviewed again and from a customer point of view and the actual setup is really not clear and easily understandable. I would really like to see as suggested by imago a section for different shipping addresses with aliases. That seems to be an easier to understand interface for customers.


Just my two cents.

Ok. After a thorough review I must admit I was wrong and OrangeGirl and eComLabs were both right. You can indeed create different shipping addresses. The current setup is not entirely clear and will not be to my customers. What is needed I believed is a clearer and better interface for customers.


My sincere apologies to both eComLabs and OrangeGirl!

Hi OrangeGirl,


What CSC achieves is to save ONLY one shipping address at a time, if you change the shipping address for a second shipping address the first shipping address is lost, since it has been replaced by the second one you just entered.

I think Imago got it right, all Shipping addresses entered should be saved in a separate section with a list available at checkout time showing aliases and a check box next to each above or next to the "Ship To" section allowing customers to ship to an already existing shipping address or add a new one.

Hi eComLabs,


This is what I had been using but got frustrated since on the customer side you can only enter a different shipping address for immediate shipping but cannot save it for later use, forcing customer to re-enter it next time around. There is a lot of reasons, after having used XCart for 14 years, for me to switch to CSC... but somehow CSC fails me on this. I am also surprised to see that after reviewing carefully all the add-ons around no one thought about this one.


Hi Webkul,


No offense but the meaning and purpose of these forums is be educational and informative for everyone. So if you would like to share your thoughts on this specific subject could you please be kind enough to share them here.

Thank you all.

In Topic: Where Are Customs Themes And Layouts Saved?

08 March 2019 - 11:58 AM

Thank you eComLabs.


I had found a list of layouts in the db. But I thought there had to be more than than.
What is interesting is the fact that only 10 fields define an entry for a layout with no data as far as I can see defining grids and blocks size and positions. Where is that data stored?
