Topics I've Started

Newsletter Images

04 November 2007 - 03:25 AM

How do I code the images so that they are not attached to the email? I click "show content" in my email provider to see the images -- that works. But the images are attached too.

I would like to have the images just download from the server. It works when I send out an email using hotmail, however, the images attach when sent through cs-cart's newletter set-up. Any ideas?

Product Configuration Price and Discount

16 October 2007 - 05:01 AM

I submitted this to help desk, but does anyone know the answers. A couple of people I think are having trouble with these issues:

I'm running into some major obsticles with how Product Configuration works.

I am using it to create product kits. Example: Mad Hatter Kit (name of configurable product) has the option to select from the following items - red hat, blue hat, green hat. The base price of Mad Hatter Kit is $0. As products are selected it adds up - red hat $5, blue hat $3 = $8 price for Mad Hatter Kit (product). Great!

But then I want discounts based on amount spend - $25-50 = 5% off, $50-75 = 10% off and so on. I think you can see the logic - the customer gets discounts as incentives to putting more items into their kit, getting them to buy more.

1. This doesn't work in the discounts - I got the fields added in the product discounts tab in the admin, but what do I change "order_total" to apply only to the product rather than "order_total"?

2. Even with just a 5% "product discount", the code is not recognizing my Mad Hatter product (the config. product) as a product -- this is a bug, since it is a product at the end (after all items have been selected -- the product is the sum of its parts, as one unit). How do you fix this?

3. It doesn't show/apply the discount on the product detail page (Mad Hatter) as sub-products are added (the red hat, blue hat, etc) (the discount does show on non-configurable products). Shouldn't this be the case here.

Then on Checkout - Order Details. The checkout_configurable.tpl file was not displaying the name of the config product - Mad Hatter. I fixed this by placing {$product.product|escape:html} in the file. This is a bug?

It also only lists the base price of the of configured product (Mad Hatter) - but not the price with all the sub-products in the kit -- the actual cost of the product configured ($8.00 is what should be the cost of Mad Hatter for this order). It does Subtotal correctly. This is a bug I assume.

Please advise - I think the main issue is the it's not recognizing the configured product as a stand-alone product (with all the sub-products added in).

thank you

Security Manual

16 October 2007 - 04:59 AM

Please help with the follow security measures:

1. My site is www.site.com/cscart/.... I'm assuming this might not be a good idea. How do I product the site better?

Do I need to creat a sub-domain. http://secure.site.com? Is it actually a sub-domain and another folder then the public_html folder? Should be hosting service advise me on this topic?

If I do move my "cscart" file, will the connection to my database be messed up?

2. What permission am I suppose to set the files - I know this was address, but it's not clear in one place.

3. Anything else?

Thank you

product configuration Base Price

My base price is not changing with the adding of additional items in the kit. (I'm using a check box). Any ideas of where to look?

Hover for text description

25 August 2007 - 09:47 PM

I know there was a similar thread before, but I can't seem to find it.

In product configuration, I have made mulitple columns with images for each selectable product (in my case to add to a kit). Instead of going to a popup for the description, I would like a "hovering window" to come up when the mouse hovers over the thumbnail (not a separate pop up page) with the product description text. The point is that people can browse quickly without a popup each time they want to know what the product is.

Anyone remember this thread?
