#299570 Issues After Upgrade To 4.7.2

Posted by The Tool on 02 April 2018 - 08:26 PM

Update:  I couldn't save the file in cPanel's editor because it kept saving as gb18030 and changing the code.  I ended up having to edit the file via ftp.

Well. to stop the bleeding, I added the following to htaccess and disabled the search block in layouts.  It isn't ideal but at least I don't have to close the store.

# Search abuse temp block
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \bsubcats=Y&pcode_from_q=Y&pshort=Y&pfull=Y&pname=Y&pkeywords=Y&search_performed=Y&q=\b [NC]
RewriteRule ^ - [F]

#297033 Rename The Image Files Of Products With Alt Text

Posted by The Tool on 01 March 2018 - 07:44 PM

So you're saying that if your have an image named "abcde.jpg" with an alt text of "My preferred image name" that it isn't as good as "My preferred image name.jpg" with an alt text of "My preferred image name"?


I think it would be best to spend your resources elsewhere.


By the way, it's not that difficult nor time consuming to convert image names.  Most of the time would be spent on downloading and uploading.  But then you still have a problem with newer products/images.


Edit:  Also, that should be the vendors responsibility not yours.

Why is it that you can install/test other carts but you need to pay someone to do an install of CSC?

Because it's like trying to put the square block in the round hole.?

It looks like you're missing the field marketplace_id in the cscart4_addons table.  Run this query to add it.

Most do not have access and/or know how to access error log files so the easiest way for them to retrieve errors is by using the tools provided by CSC.


So really there is no True or False answer to your question.
