Default Small checkout problem

When checking out, fill in the personal information checking the box for "Shipping same as Billing address".

Then go to next page in checkout process.

Now click at the top of the page to go back to personal information. The "Shipping same as Billing address" check box is no longer checked.

Shipping same as billing address should be

ship to a different address ?

and the shipping address fields hidden. The less a user has to fill in or see the better

- a more user-friendly and intuitive checkout procedure (Fast Lane Checkout module);

What's the chance of getting this new module HotFix'ed into the 4.0.x branch? That would be a VERY nice addition and a long-time coming.

Thanks,
Brian

I click "continue to move to step 4 and ..

IE, page jut hangs, wont load.

in FF i get this error msg
"Redirection Limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested page, This may be caused by cookies that are blocked"

Either way, I cannot checkout.

Hmm, could you provide some more details on this?
Is real time shipping rates calculation enabled? Did you setup HTTPS for the checkout?
Thank you.

Default where do we send/post the bugs we find as I have found one

Does any one know where to post the bugs for this new v4.1.0 beta as I have found that when you move an item from the wishlist to the cart it remains in the wishlist.

I'd say post the bugs in this thread until X-Cart says otherwise.

Default found 2 bugs in 1/2 an hour who did the alpha testing!!

found another bug - this time found that if you select check as a payment method and you do not fill in any of the fields it will still accept your order!!

Yes! It would be very nice to have cleaner html and more readable templates.

Thanks for releasing this and letting us provide feedback. Do you have a rough date in mind when you hope to release the final version? Q1 of 06? Some of our customers are very concerned about wholesale variants which is probably the #1 item in this new version.

Hi All

My quick observations of V4.1.0 from the distribution files are:

1. Pages generated are not XHTML compliant (all HTML tags must be lowercase and must have closing tags).

From the demo site (http//:www.x-cart.com/demo_preview/ ) given in a previous post:
I am running Mozilla Firefox which has a plugin that checks the HTML validity of pages.
The demo site has 24 errors (serious HTML compliance) and 158 warnings (usually titles for tables and images - not critical but would be nice to make compliant)

Some search engines will not spider pages with errors, so this could become a serious issue in the future.


Here is the link to the W3C validator for the xcart demo:

Here is the link to the CSS validator for the xcart demo


Also in config.php a Blowfish key is generated during the install process:

Quote:
#
# The variable $blowfish_key contains your Blowfish encryption key automatically
# generated by X-Cart during installation. This key is used to encrypt all the
# sensitive data in your store including user passwords, credit card data, etc.
#
# NEVER try to change your Blowfish encryption key by editing the value of the
# $blowfish_key variable in this file: your data is already encrypted with this
# key and X-Cart needs exactly the same key to be able to decrypt it. Changing
# $blowfish_key manually will corrupt all the user passwords (including the
# administrator's password), so you will not be able to use the store.
#
# Please be aware that a lost Blowfish key cannot be restored, so X-Cart team
# will not be able to help you regain access to your store if you remove or
# change the value of $blowfish_key.
#
# It is quite safe to use X-Cart with the Blowfish key generated during
# installation; however, if you still want to change it, please refer to
# X-Cart Reference Manual or contact X-Cart Tech Support for details.
#

If we setup a test site and wish to import an existing live database - do we copy the blowfish key across from the live site to the test site (as a new one is generated on the test site when the software is installed)???


Here are the competitor's verifications:


I am just trying to help with QA.

Regards
Ing. Stephen Hatton
