#314592 Vendor Profile Registration Field

Posted by imago on 21 April 2019 - 04:45 PM

 

i am using cs cart multi vendor 4.9.3 and i  want to translate Apply for a vendor account forms but i can't find the file in my cs cart
 
also this Russian words don't exist into Languages

 

If you mean the additional vendor information, it can be translated in the Vendor information block, see Design :: Layouts -- Vendor Application Form for all the languages on your marketplace.




#314256 Shipping Costs

Posted by imago on 10 April 2019 - 05:10 PM

 

if you system is not behaving this way, then there is a problem.

 

There is no integration with shippers. Everything is manual. Each vendor should set up their own rates for the different shipping zones. Or let the admin define which vendor is to use the zone, like in the products created by the admin for the sake of this or that vendor. This however we cannot do. Even in the new upcoming permissions table vendor can only view the Rate areas and Taxes, not manage them. If you can develop an add-on to allow vendors define their own shipping zones (aka Locations, or Rate areas in 10.1.x), I will gladly buy it.

 

To help you understand our predicament, here is my short review for Capterra

and my full review on our corporate website




#314244 Is It Possible To Have A Profile Field Visible To Staff Only? (Customer Notes)

Posted by imago on 10 April 2019 - 12:36 PM

No way to do this out of the box. It would be nice to have such field not only for staff but for the sake of the vendors to know the degree of reliability of this or that user. Kind of customer feedback and business rating.

#313607 Variations 2.0 In Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.1

Posted by imago on 24 March 2019 - 06:23 AM

a merchant may want only 2 methods of providing "Size". ( I.e. 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 18, etc.and XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL).

 

Actually, there will be a multiverse of Sizes:

 

Hats Size

Shirt and Blouse Womens Size

Shirt and Jacket Mens Size

Children Clothes Size

Trousers Size

Socks Size

Mens Shoes Size (EU, US, UK, JA, CH)

Womens Shoes Size 

Children Shoes Size

Bike Size

Ring Size

Wrist Size

Elbow Size

Book Size

etc., etc ad nauseum

 

Each of these Sizes has its own variation logic and standards/unit measures. Classes of classes within subclasses of the general idea of Size...




#313157 Cs-Cart Progress: February 2019 Video Report

Posted by imago on 13 March 2019 - 10:22 AM

Developing a new edition when the MVP is still work in progress with many unsolved issues and lots of addons either in BETA state or not working because of internal incompatibility - is not a good idea. Either you discontinue MVP - if it has not succeeded to accrue a substantial client-base of, say, 100 users, - or make it more attractive to the potential buyer by adding multi-stores to its base functionality.

 

Developing product variations looks like solving cases in higher mathematics when the basic arithmetics of MVP is still not working...




#313058 Possible To Hide Certain Shipping Methods?

Yes, there is an addon presumably doing this

#312682 Addon: Suggestive Search

Posted by imago on 25 February 2019 - 10:16 AM

Hi,

 

Does this addon support multi-lingual website

 

It gives me a great pleasure to confirm that. This feature is one of the biggest achievements of the add-on. It works with multiple languages, even when the languages have their own domain. Moreover, if you look for a term in one language, it may return products in other languages if the search term is contained in the meta descriptions or keywords. So it's kind of intelligent translation service.

 

Works also with the last 4.9.3 SP1 update.

#312105 Multiple Tags Problem

Posted by imago on 11 February 2019 - 08:52 AM

 

 

Maximum 10 product tag is not enough for products.

 

Scenario:

 

I have one 3d Adjustable Door Aluminium Hinge

 

If i use 4 language on my website:

 

  • English Product Tags:

3d Hinge, Adjustable Door Hinge, Aluminium Hinge,Door Hinge,Adjustable Hinge

  • Turkish Tags:

3d Menteşe,Ayarlı Kapı Menteşe,Alüminyum Menteşe,Kapı Menteşe,ayarlı Menteşe

  • France Tags : impossible to add because limit already full.
  • German Tags : impossible to add because limit already full.

We can add picture tags thats good but for product tags you have to find a new way i think.

 

Install the SEO Tags Friendly or Extended Tags addon and you will have the instrument to translate the same tag into French, German and English. Try both addons and see which one is better for you, komşu. The second has more functions...

 

It's a lot of work, but there is no other way. Having the product in German and the tags in French is not an option.

 

Once you translate the main tags for your products they will show up automatically in the tag selection tab when entering new product and will appear in all languages, no matter what language tag selected.

 

PS. The cart-power addon is not compatible with the Alexbranding Filter SEO, if you use that one by chance, and has to be disabled.

#311760 Subcategory To Different Categories

Posted by imago on 31 January 2019 - 07:35 PM

No problem. I would do it only as explained. If you need to replicate only these 100 products, use again myPHPadmin

Filter by the present category, export, replicate all fields and in the replicated part change the category_id with the new in root B, replace the M type with A type, and import.




#311530 Robots.txt For Multiple Domains In One Mv Installation

Posted by imago on 27 January 2019 - 12:30 PM

Here is the story
 

We can have multiple robots.txt from DB for Multi-Srorefronts ONLY edition of CS-Cart. Not for Multi-Vendor Editions. Our store is MV Plus. Technically we can have only ONE storefront.
 
BUT, there are addons allowing the vendors to have their own frontend on different subdomains. Crippled addons, because they only add a subdomain in the cPanel and redirect it to the vendor store in the MVE - mod_rewritten or not. When you click on a product, you are transported back to the MVE.
 
We have developed a method to generate different frontends for the different languages, and as long as you don't change the language, you stay on one domain.
 
Here comes the problem - the language specific domains are essentially parked domains and share one root with the main domain.
In order to do what you suggest, CS-Cart have to develop a Multi-Vendor Multi-Store Multi-Frontends Edition...
 
Judging by the multiplication price logic of CS-Cart, this edition will cost probably $10,000.
 
My solution costed me $100.
 
What remains to be done is creating virtual robots.txt for each domain. When I manually create a robot.txt and put it in the root, it will be valid for all domains, because there is no way to give contradictory instructions or domain specific instructions, say, e.g.
 
User-agent: *
Disallow: /*sl=en$
Disallow: /sachgebiet/
Disallow: /предмет/
Host https://www.mysite.en/
 
User-agent: *
Disallow: /*sl=de$
Disallow: /subject/
Disallow: /предмет/
Host https://www.mysite.de/
 
User-agent: *
Disallow: /*sl=ru$
Disallow: /subject/
Disallow: /sachgebiet/
Host https://www.mysite.ru/
 
Or this is possible? 

 
Solution to the problem:
 
Add this line to htaccess in mod_rewrite section

RewriteRule ^robots.txt$ robots.php

Compose robots.php according to your needs, so that one language must exclude indexing of pages from the other languages

<?php
  header('Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8');

  if($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']=='www.mysite.de'){
    echo 'User-agent: *
    Disallow: /*sl=de$
    Disallow: /книга
    Disallow: /book
    Disallow: /books/

    Disallow: /adm
    Disallow: /con
    Disallow: /login
    Host: https://www.mysite.de/
    Sitemap: https://www.mysite.de/sitemap-de.xml
    ';
  } else if($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']=='www.mysite.ru'){
    echo 'User-agent: *
    Disallow: /*sl=ru$
    Disallow: /buch
    Disallow: /book
    Disallow: /books/
    Disallow: /gebiet/
    Disallow: /genres/
    Disallow: /genre/

    Disallow: /con
    Disallow: /login
    Host: https://www.mysite.ru/
    Sitemap: https://www.mysite.ru/sitemap-ru.xml
    ';
  } else if($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']=='www.mysite.com'){
    echo 'User-agent: *
    Disallow: /*sl=en$
    Disallow: /книга
    Disallow: /buch
    Disallow: /adm

    Disallow: /store_closed.html
    Disallow: /login
    Host: https://www.mysite.com/
    Sitemap: https://www.mysite.com/sitemap.xml
    ';	
  } else {
    echo 'User-agent: *
    Disallow: /
    ';
  }
?>

Create a language specific Google map by hiding the other languages, download it, change the .tld and upload accordingly as sitemap-de and sitepap-ru to the root of your main site.
 
That's it. You have now three separate robots.txt in one docroot:
   mysite.com/robots.txt
   mysite.de/robots.txt
   mysite.ru/robots.txt
 
PS. The default CSC robots.txt will be ignored, no matter what you put in there.
 
Open to suggestions how to make the disallows more relevant.
