  Export function
Posted by: davidb - 06-24-2018, 09:54 PM - Forum: General Support - No Replies


I'm using the export function for the first time to try and understand it so I can try and speed up new product entry.

I'm using the export to XLSX function for products but I try to open the file in Excel on a Mac (15.22) and I get a some content is unreadable error with an option to "Open and Repair".  It then becomes a read only file with the "unsupported" content displayed but not saved. I assume from this that it means I won't be able to import an updated sheet back in.

Does anybody know what version of Excel (or similar), on a Mac, works with the export/import option as obviously my version of Excel on the Mac doesen't ?

I've tried with OCE versions 1.8.4 and 1.10.2 both with the same error.

  1.11.0 upgrade testing
Posted by: davidb - 06-17-2018, 05:43 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (3)

I'm trying to work out what is going wrong with my upgrade from 1.8.4 to 1.11.0 so I've been experimenting.

I installed a clean version of 1.8.4 with no demo data, I just added 1 product for checking and then went through the upgrade to 1.10.2, cleared the cache and that all appears to be ok.

I've now just upgraded that version to 1.11.0

All appeared to go ok. I logged in to the dashboard, got the permission denied message, updated the user group permissions. However when I tried to login again I get the following error:

Warning: simplexml_load_file(): http:// wrapper is disabled in the server configuration by allow_url_fopen=0 in /var/www/web/admin/model/localisation/currency.php on line 164Warning: simplexml_load_file(http://www.floatrates.com/daily/gbp.xml): failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /var/www/web/admin/model/localisation/currency.php on line 164Warning: simplexml_load_file(): I/O warning : failed to load external entity "http://www.floatrates.com/daily/gbp.xml" in /var/www/web/admin/model/localisation/currency.php on line 164

  Search by Products' Tags Fix
Posted by: Sp1ke - 06-15-2018, 07:51 PM - Forum: Free Contributions - No Replies

There is an issue when searching by tags. 
Let's say that you have a two words tag (word1, word2) - when click on it you goto to search page with this URL:
the result is that the search shows all the products that have this tag but also all products that contain any of the two words. Which is not 100% right.

That is why I build the vqmod file to solve the issue. It works both for the Tags module and for the tags link(s) in product pages. You may download and use this one for free. Note that this is tested only in ver 1.11.0. 

I just want to make clear two things:
1. It returns the right results BUT is not showing the tags in the search input box ("Search for" input shows nothing).
2. Remarks or questions are welcome but please keep in mind that I am not a professional programmer...just helping a friend with her company website.

  Search by Product Tag Bug
Posted by: Sp1ke - 06-13-2018, 09:09 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (4)

In frontend product displaying page ver. 1.11.0. 
I have a tag with four words, let's say:
word1 word2 word3 word4. When I click on the tag I goto search page with this URL part:

because of the search term: 
I get 15 results - for any product that contains even one of the 4 words.
If i manually change the URL and make it:
I get the right results - the 2 products that are using this tag.

I had a look in file:
and I saw that in line 859 has an if statement:
if ($product_info['tag']) {
inside the if statement the right link call is written. Line 867:
'href' => $this->url->link('product/search', 'search=' . $tag . '&tag=' . $tag, 'SSL')
but something make it not appear (or change it later) in the actual link reference at the frontend.

  Auto expand description and related products
Posted by: davidb - 06-13-2018, 08:43 PM - Forum: New Feature Requests - Replies (4)

With the new update the product tabs are closed by default.

Is it possible to enable it then when you view a product that the Description is already expanded and also Related Products is expanded as well. 

Also how easy would it be to change the order so the review tab is at the bottom?

Many thanks

  Icons below products
Posted by: davidb - 06-13-2018, 08:31 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (1)

Hi again

I'm testing on a test shop upgraded from 1.8.4 to 1.11, currently testing on the Beta version but I had noticed this bug before using the release version. I wasn't sure it was a bug but I've just looked at the demo shop.

On Safari there are no icons showing at all below the product. Chrome shows a square outline and Firefox shows a square outline with 4 characters inside it -  see below ( I zoomed the window as I could see something inside the square but I was not sure what it was).

  Frontend search returns No results - Fix
Posted by: Sp1ke - 06-10-2018, 08:09 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (2)

Search returns no results at "index.php?route=product/search" (frontend).

Open "catalog\view\theme\default\template\product\search.tpl"

Line 161 (omit the quotes): 
"var search = $('#content input[name=\'search\']').attr('value');"
Change to (omit the quotes):
"var search = $('#content input[name=\'search\']').prop('value');"

Line 170 (omit the quotes):
"var category_id = $('#content select[name=\'category_id\']').attr('value');"
Change to (omit the quotes):
"var category_id = $('#content select[name=\'category_id\']').prop('value');"

And the issue is fixed...

  Main Image Label
Posted by: davidb - 06-10-2018, 02:59 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (8)

I'm testing the 1.11 update before applying to our live shop and I've just tried to add an image into this field and I'm sure it is doing what it did in a previous update. As soon as you add an image the product image is squashed vertically. I will try and find the original discussion/cure but I thought this would have been added into the latest code.

  Admin filter not working
Posted by: Sp1ke - 06-08-2018, 10:41 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (2)


Testing version 1.11.0 and found out that the filter is not working in administration for Categories and Products. It seems that returns No Results. I also tested on the demo admin page and still returns No Results.

(Later update...)

I just notice this:
Try to search in demo admin site products with Name: ipod. The returning search page URL is: 'http://demo.villagedefrance.net/admin/index.php?route=catalog/product&token=33e9c0112bb8aa27a5f05504eb453096&filter_status=undefined'
And No Results message appears on the list.

I manually changed the URL with that: 'http://demo.villagedefrance.net/admin/index.php?route=catalog/product&token=33e9c0112bb8aa27a5f05504eb453096&filter_name=ipod'
And BINGO! the ipod products appears on the list.
So something on the code returns filter_status as 'undefined'. Can be checked why is this happening?

  Extensions Update
Posted by: Tango - 06-05-2018, 03:48 PM - Forum: Extensions and Modules - No Replies

Please note that with the release of OpenCart Overclocked v1.11.x, the majority of Themes and Extensions in the Marketplace, stopped working and need an update.

This needs to get fixed as v1.11.x is the way forward.
