In Topic: Caxid templates / technologies review

12 December 2011 - 03:00 PM

I'm glad for you and for your good experience with CAXID, mine was awful with them and obviously I'm in my right to expose it and warn others before it's too late.
Today, at the very moment I'm writting this, they're chatting with me thru skype in a dialect I can hardly understand, totally broken English (notice I'm not even an English speaker myself)
I am now demanding a fixed template or my money back and they reply "sorry, we out of station for past 5 months. Please, we make new work cscart"
I continue to ask until I get a clear idea of they they are trying to say and I will translate it to you. He was trying to justify the lack of replies and the fact they totally ignored me by saying they were "out of station" whatever that means. The funny part is I bought the problematic template directly from their website, got it wrong and then was asked for money to fix it, all within the past month. They seem not to be "out of station" for asking for more money to fix a template that was supposed not to have troubles in the 1st place.
On the other hand, "we make new work cscart" means they are willing to take a new order from me for a cscart project.
Yeah, right!

I must warn you about this Caxid company. It is an Indian company constantly changing programmers, a total disaster to work with, some of them can not communicate correctly in English thus understanding wrong the work to be made. I hired them for a job and once was enough.
Recenttly I decided to purchase a template, no code work involved, just the template, so I thought it would go ok.
The template was all wrong, the sliding banners was not working and columns were not aligned well so I asked them to fix it, they asked for more money to fix it, I angrily refused and never heard from them again. I even opened a paypal dispute to make them answer and nothing happened.
Paypal, as usual, closed the dispute without returning the money because they do not middle in non-tangible goods.
Paypal is paradise for scammers and unprofessional designers.

Be aware, hiring Caxid for any job including tempaltes is wasting your precious time and money.

If you go into phpMyAdmin, on the main screen you should see a setting called "MySQL connection collation". For english this setting is "utf8_general_ci". Since I am not familiar with your language, I am guessing that yours should be either "utf8_spanish_ci" or "utf8_spanish2_ci".

If you go into the tables, will see the encoding/collation of the table next to it.

yes, I did it and I have for most tables "utf8_general_ci" and for a few others, oh my God, I have "latin1_swedish_ci" Swedish???!!!! How did that happen?
Summing up, I do not have in any utf8_spanish_ci, which I suppose it's the problem, my store is solely in Spanish.

I'm sorry to ask again for orientation: how do I change all tables to the proper setting? I know very little about mysql, and I do know one must be extremely careful when dealing with it.

I can't wait for your reply , thanks for the help, I hope this is useful for so many other non-English cs-cart users

note: just sent you a PM with the link to the file
