@mworsnop

Do I understand you correctly that you want your home page to display all of your products as it would be a category page? If so, I can explain how you can write such mod.

Tony.

Yes just like if you clicked on a category, and then clicked on list view by recommended.

Hi Mark!

I see. I will be happy to help you with this mod next week. I have added a reminder to myself, but feel free to bump me after March, 20, if I forget.

am I to understand that if you want to not show all the categories on the home page I need to write a module? You say this is simple, but I haven't found one single thing about xcart 5 simple. The should be a check box, show or not show categories on home page. I don't want to write a module and redeploy store for every single change of this software.

Default Re: How to edit main page in X-Cart 5

why can't we have

if home
do this
else
do this

why can't we have AltImagesDir. from a front end / designer perspective this software is a nightmare. What I like about xcart was as a front end dev / graphic artist developing a skin was relatively simple... now there is a 20 step preocess just to make a skin. xcart 5 may give you PHP / backend gurus FULL CONTROL but I'm so so lost :/

It might be BASED in PHP but the code it so darn convoluted I dont know how to mess with it. I bought it becasue it is PHP but had no idea they had all the other "crap" mixed into it. If the modules were php based too that would make sense. But so far I have yet to see a flow chart diagram of this system and how its supposed to work.

All I know is I have been trying for almost 3 weeks with tech support and they dont bother to reply or when they do its a bogus answer because they dont know what to do.

On Monday they said they fixed 2 things. Well they didnt. I did. They didnt login since Friday morning and it didnt work until I spent most of Saturday trying to find an answer. So that is BS

My current problem I am going to start writing my own code to finish the job that XCart is supposed to do.

Shaking my head...

sigh

Hello @ARW VISIONS,

1) As for showing categories on home page, did you try to enable this option in the Catalog > Front page section in admin area:
http://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image/23359/470c4e14b2d9c7dc93bfbcbf7c219f3e

I feel, you can achieve desired results without any modification.

2) As for customization of X-Cart 5, I agree that after X-Cart 4 X-Cart 5 might look quite cumbersome, but developers who got used to OOP paradigm really loves its architecture. They do not want to work with X-Cart 4 at all.

Anyway, we are ready to help you learning X-Cart 5. We can achieve it only if you think about each unknown task as "Well, how can I achieve that?". If you think about each unknown task as "Gosh, I want X-Cart 4 back", then we will not be able to help you. In this case, X-Cart 4 is probably the better option for you. Why hurt yourself if you know X-Cart 4 so well?

So, if you want to learn X-Cart 5 architecture, please ask questions and I will be happy to help you.

Tony

Sorry @mworsnop for such poor impression about dealing with upgrade problems. I am glad we have worked out everything at the moment.
