Just to clarify. You're saying that the patch can be applied completely as it was sent by x-cart, plus the two changes you describe have to also be made, here: skin/ability/customer/main/product_details.tpl, right?

My cart is heavily modified so I do a file comparison between the new x-cart files and my current files using Beyond Compare. So my steps are:

1. Compare new x-cart patch files vs my current x-cart files.
2. Compare new x-cart patch /skin files vs my current Ability files.
3. Apply new x-cart changes to my existing files so that the only difference between the 2 are any manual changes either by me or by the 3rd party mod.
4. While in Admin --> upload the updated files then apply the patch.sql

When I compared the x-cart patch /skin files vs my Ability files the only file that affected me was skin/ability/customer/main/product_details.tpl

To be safe you should do your own comparison using a tool like Beyond Compare.

Thanks for this suggestion and thanks elmirage001 for the Beyond Compare suggestion.

Looks like Beyond Compare has a key advantage: FTP support.

But now on the .co.uk site all the text for the product descriptions, the static pages and dropdown menu text in the header, there may be more are all white. Hence, you can't see any of the text !

The text is black on the original site. Any ideas ?

This is really annoying. Any ideas folks ?

To
Code:
value="{$smarty.get.slot|escape:"html"}"

There are 2 places this happens in this file.

Minor note: it appears that the code that has to be changed in this Ability TPL skin file differs slightly in the 2 places mentioned.

First case: {$smarty.get.quantity} becomes {smarty.get.quantity|escape:html}

Second case: {$smarty.get.slot} becomes {smarty.get.slot|escape:html}

Thanks again for the help.

So Ability will not be supported with 4.6.1?

Anyone have reason to think the upcoming move from MySQL 5.1 to MySQL 5.5 will have adverse affects on stores using Ability template with x-cart v4.4.5?

No way. I'd be really surprised if there was.
