Default Remove Product #ID from product detail title

Remove Product #ID from product detail title

How do I remove the id number from my product title in the detail pages.
Current display is: "product name #xxxxxxxx"
I want: "product name"

Open /skin1/customer/main/product.tpl and look for this line (near the bottom):

Code:
{include file="dialog.tpl" title=$product.producttitle content=$smarty.capture.dialog extra="width=100%"}

Change it to:

Code:
{include file="dialog.tpl" title=$product.product content=$smarty.capture.dialog extra="width=100%"}

Default How can I add html tags to certain fields like extra fields

How can I add html tags to certain fields like extra fields etc

the reason you cant is because xcart stores a list of trusted variables as a security measure. yuo can add to the list etc by doing the following...

First alter the database tables
The table you want to alter is xcart_extra_field_values.

Change it to text or varchar intead of char(255)

you can do this by running this sql command with phpmyadmin or via the patch update page in your admin
Code:
ALTER TABLE `xcart_extra_field_values` CHANGE `value` `value` TEXT

Then edit the provider/product_modify.php file and add the additional field name in the array: $trusted_post_variables

You'll find this at the top of the file, the field needs to trusted before X-Cart will allow HTML to be entered into the field.

Here is the full code snippet you need to add the field name to:
Code:
$trusted_post_variables = array("product_lng_descr","product_lng_full_descr", "product_new_descr","product_new_full_descr","descr", "fulldescr","posted_data","js_code","javascript_code");

Default How To Increase or Alter order number

How To Increase or Alter order number

go to the patch / upgrade section of your xcart admin area and submit this code via the SQL queries form


Code:
ALTER TABLE xcart_orders AUTO_INCREMENT = xxxxxx;

set xxxxx to be the order number you wish your orders to go from.

ps, make sure this number is bigger then the last order number in your cart

Default How To Move Your Site To The Root Directory

How To Move Your Site To The Root Directory

Lets say you have your shop set up as something like this

http://www.yourdomain.com/xcart

and you would rather it were set up more like this

http://yourdomain.com/

########################################

Firstly, set all your images to be stored in the database if they are not already. This will make more sense later, stick with it......

now either by using you FTP client or via SSH copy all the files from the folder that they are currently in back to the root directory of your server. more often then not this will be called something like public_html

next up you need to open your config.php file and look for the section (not far from the top) that asks for the location of your store.

look for

Code:
$xcart_http_host ="yourdomain.com"; $xcart_https_host ="yourdomain.com"; $xcart_web_dir ="/xcart";

and change it to

Code:
$xcart_http_host ="yourdomain.com"; $xcart_https_host ="yourdomain.com"; $xcart_web_dir ="";

now go back to the images location section and set the images to store in the filesystem again.

And thats that......

you can always remove the thumbnails that are stored on the filesystem before moving your files once you have moved them to the database. This is a good way of flushing out all the old unused ones and makes sure there are no duplicates in there wasting space. They will all be replaced once you set the images to store in the filesystem again later
