Confusion About Search And Filters

24 September 2020 - 04:03 AM

OK I've got a search and a filter set up but I'm very confused about filters -


What I want is to give the user filters for dimensions and price. If I go to the "filters" area, I can add a price slider and a something called "size". So ok, there are my two filters. Both are set for global, no specific categories.


When I go to my categories layout manager, if I add the filter block and set it to display both of those filters, only the price filter actually shows up. Everything is active, on, etc. I get the one to show, but not the other... what the heck?


Ok, just to test things and see if I'm crazy, I set up the same thing on the home page (this time using the "filters for homepage" block). Same thing as before... I go to add both of my filters but... the price filter is not available to choose? What?? Only the "size" option shows up?? Ok... well, just for testing, lets add that... so I do. And sure enough, the "size" filter is there on the home page. Except.... the drop down options it provides the user are strange... I have no idea where its pulling the options or how to adjust them. It seems like its trying to provide some (not even all of them) of the variations available on one single product. Is this where it tried to populate the list from?


So I'm all turned around here, anyone able to point me the right way? I feel like I should know how to get what I want done but it just doesn't want to do it.

Filter And Search

23 September 2020 - 01:38 AM

I'm trying to accomplish the following:


- allow my customer to go to a devoted page and fiddle with parameters (price range, dimensions, other customer parameters) to filter products

- allow my customer, once in a particular category, to filter products therein by (more or less) the same parameters


Whats the right combo of tools/add-on/options/etc to accomplish this?

Search Add-On That Cooperates With Age Restriction

22 September 2020 - 03:59 AM

Hi everyone -


I'm using the built in age restriction for one category. I have a few questions:


1) Any way to make the age restriction thing a drop down menu to choose your birth date, instead of just entering a typed-in number?


2) If a user has their b-day entered in their account and it's above my age limit, is the restriction lifted automatically as long as theyre logged in? I thought I tried it and it still made my user enter their age, despite their b-day being saved in their account as well above my age limit, but maybe I'm missing something.


3) I want to add a search add-on but I can't seem to find one that mentions anything about age restriction - I need something that, if they have not put their age into the system yet, it wont return anything from the age-restricted category. Is this even a thing?




edit: eh... this may be better in the cs-cart specific area :neutral:

A Couple (Mostly Probably Simple) Questions

01 September 2020 - 04:05 AM

I've got my site pretty much ready to roll but I've got a few things that I'm stumped by. Wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction


1) I have Stripe as my payment system. If I use the inline, it works fine. If I use the gateway, it properly takes someone to the gateway. However, after that, when its supposed to take you back to my site, it takes you to some random page and my website returns a 404 error. How do I control where the gateway dumps you afterward?

2) I can't figure out how to add a second address input to my order taking screen. I just asks for "address" and I'd like to provide a second and maybe third line to the order form.

3) Any way I can get rid of the phone number input requiring you to put a 1 before a US number? 734-555-1234 comes out as +7(345)551-234_ and considering I don't sell internationally, this is annoying.

4) I have a certain category that I'd like to offer a 10% discount if they order two items from that category, and 15% if they order 3 or more. I only want the discount to apply when items from that category are added, and the discount only applies to items from that category regardless of what else is in the cart. Is this possible? I don't want to spend an hour trying to get this set up only to finally realize it's not lol.


To be clear, lets say category(cat) 1 is the special category with the discount


ex1: cart = cat1, cat1. ---------------->10% off full cart

ex2: cart = cat1, cat1, cat1 ---------->15% off full cart

ex3: cart = cat1, cat1, cat2 ---------->10% off just the first two

ex4: cart = cat1, cat2, cat3 ---------->no discount

ex5: cart = cat1, cat1, cat1, cat2 --->15% off just the first three


Appreciate any insight. Thanks!
