What happened to hte larger image pop up? I don't see it in the demo neither at customers side or Detailed Images upload in Admin.

Also will the new FancyCats mod version work with 4.1.8? Anything to speed up the pages.

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

One of the reasons I chose X-Cart was that it was suppose to be easy to upgrade without aving to start over. Please forgive the naieve question, but does this mean that, after about one month of use, the skin that I purchased for 4.1.11 and the modules such as configurator, and several others are now obsolete?

I just got the store up and running and it's doing well, so I won't try the upgrade till after the holidays.

For those of us who don't know the difference between Smarty and CSS, could someone explain in simple language what this means to upgrading our stores?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Rob!

You won't be able to upgrade to 4.2, as it uses a completely different template system. You'd need to install a fresh copy of 4.2, and import your upgraded (I assume they will release an upgrade patch for the DB) database into the new DB.

Hi,

I assume x-cart still uses smarty templates, but now, instead of using table layouts, x-cart will have css-based layouts. This creates much cleaner code that is more search-engine friendly, and, it's much easier to read and modify.

Would that be any different than purchasing one of those 100% css skins?
