Hey Bill,

If you go into your X-Cart admin and click on Images Location and try go down to Images of Type E, try changing it from wherever it is storing the images to the other option. So change from Database to File System or vice versa. If that doesnt work please submit a ticket at our support system.

Thanks Jon,
I switched it to File and that worked. I do have one other question: I was under the impression that it would place thumbnails on the homepage etc.. I don't see any option for thumbnails. I disabled putting "recent entries" entries on the bottom of the homepage as it takes up too much space with a 450x450 image. Also in the entries I would have thought the images for the related items would be thumbnails. Currently they are full size images, which detract/distract from the main entry. Do I have to make a choice between either uploading a thumbnail or a full size image in admin? Hope my question is clear lol.

Bill

Well for related products I could edit your .tpl to show smaller thumbnails for the related products, that uses product_thumbnail I should be able to get it to use same size as other thumbnails.

As for the actual entry images you should resize them to the size you want before uploading them to the entry.

Thanks Jon,
I've only done a couple of entries so far. I'll play with it a little longer and see how it works out.

Thanks
Bill

Hello,

Does xCMS allow you to define where the pages and such are? Like have the main site (example.com) load a CMS page and then have X-carts default root page be in something like /shop/ ?
Also, is there anyway without requiring modification to make the search feature search the articles?


Edit:
Got the second answered by Jon via support ticket, which was a 'No'.
For root, I looked on the demo and saw no way to do so, so that's also a no.

I installed xCMS a couple of days ago and just have to say THANK YOU Jon! It's only been a couple of days but I can't image not having this mod (along with CDSEO Pro).

For way over a year I had my site wrapped around Wordpress but it always felt like a square peg in a round hole. xCMS seamlessly integrates with x-cart and together with CDSEO Pro I'm finally satisfied I have the tools needed to surpass my competition for top SERPs.

Thank you for creating such outstanding mods for all of us!

Paul

Hello Jon,

Just got your xCMS ,,,, great product!

there are 1 or 2 minor issues but if have logged a ticket a few days back.

Apart from that, one quick question, I have the "related news" appearing on the home page on the right hand column and under the featured products section which is all good. i have created an article and related it to a certain category and when i go to the category page all appears ok in the right hand column , once again all good ,,,,, my question is can I get the "related article" to also appear at the bottom of the category page in a similiar manner as "recent article" does on the home page?

i have attached a pic of what it looks like on the home page.

thanks in advance

We're behind on support tickets right now but are working hard to get caught up. Make sure you've supplied FTP information in your ticket to help expedite a solution.

You would have to duplicate and rename the side menu content for the category, then make the appropriate changes to the display to display the additional information and include it accordingly.
