Is CS-Cart ready for new USPS API updates?

20 April 2011 - 03:39 PM

I just received a notice from X-Cart that they have released patches

USPS API update patches (RateV4 and IntlRateV2)
Dear X-Cart Customer,

We received a notice from the USPS regarding their new APIs named RateV4 and IntlRateV2. The USPS notice states that "Rate, RateV2, RateV3 and IntlRate will be retired in May 2011, requiring all integrators to migrate to the latest versions".

Therefore, we have released the update patches which will help X-Cart users to update their carts and migrate to the new APIs RateV4 and IntlRateV2.

The USPS API update patches are available for the following X-Cart versions:
* 4.4.0-4.4.2
* 4.3.2
* 4.2.3
* 4.1.12


Exempt products from free shipping ?

15 April 2011 - 04:56 PM

My turn to ask for help with something here.

I'm trying to prevent some products from a free shipping promotion because they require additional handling.

Setting a "Not In" promotion condition doesn't seem to work but, I'm not sure if this is a bug or if I'm not doing it properly.

I actually need to add more functionality to this so it will only charge shipping for the exempted products in the cart but I need to get this working first.

Thanks

MOD: Add word counter to meta descriptions & keywords

23 March 2011 - 01:16 AM

This has been requested a couple times so I decided to throw one together.

This modification will add a simple word counter under the Meta description and (optional) Meta keyword input fields when adding or updating products.

Posted Image

Tested only on version 2.1.4 with IE8 and FF3.6 and 'not completely' so be prepared to revert if needed.

Requires:
1 template edit
1 file upload

Known issues:
When loading a product with existing words in these fields the counter will show 0 until a key is pressed in the field...
reserved
reserved

Possible issues:
May conflict with other javascript especially if you have other product option related addons.

Instructions:

Upload jquery.meta_counter.js to the /js directory

(Option 1) Skip to Option 2 below if you want description AND keyword word counters


========= Meta Description Counter Only ===========

Template Edit

Open skins/yourskin/admin/views/products/update.tpl

Add this to the top of file
{script src="js/jquery.meta_counter.js"}
{literal}
<script type="text/javascript">
    //<![CDATA[
    $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#product_meta_descr').descrCount();
    });
    //]]>
</script>
{/literal}
find this line in same file
<textarea name="product_data[meta_description]" id="product_meta_descr" cols="55" rows="2" class="input-textarea-long">{$product_data.meta_description}</textarea>
add this directly below it
<p><span style="color:#FF0000">Word Count : <span id="meta_description_counter">0</span></span></p>
Save file
