Admin homepage bug.

The recent Mailchimp patch notification 'Hide' link doesn't work.

Quote:
Other updates:
Mailchimp subscription is broken A patch is available.Hide <-- not working

Instead it links to https://bt.x-cart.com/view.php?id=50227#211226


Edit: SQL patch hides it...
Quote:
INSERT INTO xcart_config (name,value,defvalue,variants) VALUES ('applied_patches',',bt_50227-ver1','','') ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE value = CONCAT_WS(',',value,'bt_50227-ver1');

Seems to be a v4.7.10 bug in the Advanced Customer Reviews module, add review form.

Error:
Quote:
stars_cost is not defined

In skin/common_files/modules/Advanced_Customer_Reviews/vote_bar.tpl this code is commented out...
Code:
var stars_cost = {$stars.cost|default:1};
Reviews can't be added unless it's uncommented.

not sure if you have it planned for the next update but the socialize module should remove google + references since it is EOL.

Google has announced that Google+ for consumers will be sunset. As part of the sunset, all Google+ web integrations will stop serving on March 7, 2019. This has the potential to affect website layouts and/or functionality if no action is taken by website owners.

We've been up and running on X-Cart 4.7.10 PHP 7.2 using Phil's reBOOT 4.7.10 template for just over a week now and we couldn't be happier. We're running around 15 to 20% faster but the best surprise was the gains showing in Google Search Console for impressions and clicks. I'm attaching an image showing both the impression/click data and a GTmetrix comparing my site vs my 2 biggest competitors and my friends X-Cart 5 site who's also in my small niche. (FYI - my X-Cart 5 friend is still working on his site so I expect his results to greatly improve in the future.)

Thank you so much to everyone on the X-Cart team, and to Phil for his reBOOT template!


I hope showing this will help more XC4 users decide to upgrade.

Not to give you a cold shower but you have to remember these are just numbers. They don't do you much good unless you compare identical pages claimed to be optimized the same way.

If your page has 2 images on it, your site doesn't call any external services, fonts, etc and the competitor site age has 20 images, uses FB, Twitter, etc - the comparison is like apple and oranges.

GTmetrix will not tell you all this and will not take it into account. Also you have to take into account the hosting and its optimization.

XC4 will always be faster than XC5 on the same server under same environment. It is the platform itself.

And lastly - none of these page speed services uses real user connection / device to test pages. They try to set it close to this but still not real people.

However - keep using them and try to follow as much as possible whatever makes sense for your website/platform to adjust and improve. Comparing to others is sort of useless but using it to improve your site virtual load times - it is good.
Sometimes they point out issues you won't see or encounter yourself or your dev.

The improvement you see with Phill's theme is because the XC stock one sucks. Qt after so many years and posts still does CSS extremely wrong and this has an affect on sites. XC CSS is so bloated it is a nightmare to use. Applies to both XC4 and XC5.

Anyway. Good job.

Attachment 5313

You inspired me.. WHILE I did not upgrade fully to XC4.7.10, I took the optimization parts from 4.7.10 to improve the template loading since my install is very customized..

parts I used include:

1) files in \include\templater\plugins\
2) modded the skin\common_files such as meta.tpl and customer\service_js load..
3) added the new config values for speedup_js and speedup_css

added the \include\lib\vendor folder for the new minify

disabled the reboot minify script..

Page speed insights improvements for 4.7.7 and Reboot:

Before:
25 - desktop
4 - mobile

very bad!

After:
72 - Desktop
30 - Mobile

better.. could use improvement..

some inner pages hit 89 on desktop for page speed.

I code alot of sh*t and don't recommend trying this at home..
