  1. Hi sephzero, Here's what you need to do: 1. Create subfolder(s) in the upload directory (eg upload/carpets) 2. Upload the images into the subfolder(s) 3. Use the url of the images in the subfolders in your .csv for your products, either using absolute path (http :// www . domain . com/upload/carpets/image1.jpg) or relative path (../upload/carpets/image1.jpg) On your 2nd question: Yes, it's a good method if you need to update a lot of products and using OpenOffice's Calc spreadsheet program, CSVed or uniCSVed, all of which are able to save, open and edit csv files. If you're updating very few products, you can just update in the BO.
  2. Hi Marc, From your description, here are the few things which cause the problems you encounter: 1. You created your csv file by conversion from Excel and attempted to upload it from BO. 2. You use Excel to open csv files by default 3. The csv file you created and attached in post #1 is ',' field seperated (converted by Excel) 4. You didn't change the field seperator to ',' in BO >> Tools >> Import when uploading your csv file (when it's directly converted via Excel). The default field seperator for Prestashop CSV is ';' To avoid the problems you experienced, it'll be much easier when you use OpenOffice's Calc (spreadsheet) program, which is equivalent to Excel. Reasons are: 1. You can create spreadsheets exactly like in Excel but much more user-friendly when converting, opening and editing CSV files. Calc convert spreadsheets to csv files with ";" seperated fields by default. 2. You can open CSV files directly using the appropriate field seperator, view and edit them in seperate columns.
  3. OpenOffice is similar to MS Office and it comes with a database program (equivalent of MS Access). You can download the latest OpenOffice here.
  4. i went to my admin folder which i have change the name to "dudeking" and the problem is i cant find the "adminOrder.php" file plss help im really a newbie sorry "AdminOrders.php" file is in admin/tabs folder. In your case, it'll be dudeking/tabs .
  5. May I know is this module compatible with PS 1.4 stable?
  6. Hi Rayan, I guess nobody knows how to help without details from you other than your mention of "CANNOT BE SAVED" error. Is it the CSV format or uploading and importing process that you're having problems with? Have you searched and read the threads related to CSV formats, upload & import? If you haven't, please do or see: 1. http://www.prestashop.com/forums/viewthread/86913/ 2. http://www.prestashop.com/forums/viewthread/92016/ Take note that when you are importing products via CSV (obviously file format must be in .csv extension) from BO, you have to select the correct "Products" choice from the drop-down menu. Attached are 2 CSV files - 1 for product, another for product's combinations I just checked the Sample file which you attached. First of all. I am using a separate cell for each coloumn. I am not using ; as a separator. I will post the images and then you can see the error properly. For eg:- You Wrote Products ID; Product Name; Price in one cell What I wrote is Products ( Different Cell ) Name( Different Cell ) Price ( Different Cell ) I hope u understand what I am trying to say. Rayan, May I know which Spreadsheet program are you using? I'm using OpenOffice's Calc to create the data before converting (and saving) it in CSV format. If you're using Excel to open the file, it'll show the data in one cell. When you open the csv file in semi-colon format using OpenOffice Calc, it'll show in different columns not one. When you open it using Notepad (plain text program), you will see the data in strings and rows, seperated by ";". When we create data in spreadsheets (in both Excel and OO Calc), we input them in different columns, but both programs convert data into CSV format differently. OpenOffice Calc is more user-friendly when it comes to Spreadsheet-to-CSV file format conversion as it creates CSV files with ";" field seperator by default.
  7. Hi Vincent, I've tested it. Live Edit in PrestaShop 1.4 final is stable so far. It's really a great feature! It's so much easier to change the blocks' positions now
  8. Hi Zenith, I've sent you a PM. Please advise where went wrong. Thanks.

  10. Hi Zenith, I have downloaded the version 2.1 and used it for PS1.4 final version, but I get blank sections below the 4 boxes (New Cat, New Product, Stats, New Employee). Are there any changes to the codes in 1.4 stable's AdminHome file?
  11. You can use the custom text fields to allow customers input their own measurement/choices. And this feature can be used simultaneously with the drop-down product attributes. Attached image shows where you can find it.
  12. 1. I'm not fully sure whether the paid addons/modules are open source but the free ones are. All addons and modules are actually PHP and TPL files which you can download and save. These addons are open for modifications and sharing among the community. As for the paid addons, you can modify or customise to your specific requirements by requesting the module's developer to do so or hire another developer for the project. 2. Yes, Prestashop definitely can do that - either list the product with attributes or without. The customer can choose the quantity of the attributes and add them to cart. You can even add custom text boxes and file/image upload features for the customers to input texts and files. 3. Inventory control is very easy. You can freely add, subtract and monitor your inventory. You can execute stock adjustments from the products editing tab in the Back Office (admin panel) and gather stock movement/sales from the catalog and stats tabs. 4. There isn't a bridal registry feature or module in Prestashop out of the box, but there is a paid module where registered customers can buy gift vouchers/cards and send them to friends/guests. To better understand and experience what Prestashop can offer, I suggest you install Prestashop and give it a try. Or you can go to the showcase and demo where there are many types of online stores and check out the variety of features.
  13. Angora: Thanks, I have submitted a bug report and a dev have started to look into it. Daniel: Glad to hear it's working fine for you. Perhaps it's some of my settings which cause the problem. I'm waiting for the dev's feedback.
  14. You can preview Javascript, HTML and CSS changes with Firefox v3.6 browser and it's addons Firebug and Web Developer. Alternatively, you can also use SeaMonkey browser too, with it's WYSIWYG HTML editor Composer natively built-in. You can also install Firebug addon to Seamonkey since both engines are the same. There's also Firebug Lite version as extension/addon for other browsers. If you prefer to use standalone open source programs, you can try NVU.
  15. I have updated my Prestashop to the most recent 1.4RC6 and got pretty excited about the new Live Edit feature which allows drag and drop page layout ability like Wordpress. However when I started using it, I received this error in a dialogue box: TECHNICAL ERROR: unable to unregister hook Details: Error thrown: [object XMLHttpRequest] Text status: parsererror Although I'm redirected to my store's FO, able to execute drag and drop & deletion of modules, I'm unable to save the changes. Attached below is the image. I noticed that the admin's cookie key is required (from the file /admin/tabs/AdminModulesPositions.php) in the codes section for the Live Edit feature. I have set my Preferences option Check IP on the cookie to No. Is there something I missed out that caused this problem? Need changing of permission or codes in a certain file? Or is it due to the peferences setting for the cookie?
  16. SSL from COMODO is quite reliable and reputable. It's an added advantage and assurance you can give to your customers who are particular about online payment security and privacy compared to none. It's not really a large competitive advantage though as most online retailers have SSL, but you can reframe it as part of customer service/care/experience which you show concern about. Having SSL is also good as some payment gateways require SSL before authentication and smooth use of module is required (eg Paypal API module if you're using PS 1.3). As for credit card payment gateways, please check with the gateway vendors whether any SSL (and cert level) is required. This will help you in your planning and budgeting. If SSL and dedicated IP are offered as part of a webhost package, you can consider them as a good choice if it's reasonably priced. Do compare the price of the value-added plan against the total cost of similar webhost plans (without the extras) + SSL + dedicated IP which you have to subscribe seperately. If the value-added plan gives better value-for-money, then I suggest you go for it. SSL prices, if acquired as standalone, can be higher or comparable to 1 year's webhosting cost.
  17. There are several factors to consider when choosing a webhost and webhosting plans: 1. Location (country, state) of webhost and their servers. Servers located locally or within the same country means faster loading for local online customers. It also means it's easier for you to reach and communicate with the webhost tech staff. 2. Server specifications This is very important as this allows or restricts what programs or scripts you want to install & use later on. Be sure to check on this thoroughly with programs you want to run on. Specs to check on: Type of server (Windows or Linux), PHP version, Apache version, which SQL database & version 3. Webhosting Plan specifications You have to know a) How much webspace you need/want, How much (minimum) bandwidth per month is required c) Number of databases are offered for the specific plan and how many do you need d) Are there any open-source scripts that are easily installed from the server admin panel (eg Wordpress, Joomla etc) e) Is the price reasonable for the subscription period AND the plan specifications? f) Is the plan specification able to take higher traffic and webspace load than what you expected/projected if sales and visitors traffic increase? 4. Webhost reliability and level/quality of tech support One of the most important aspects to consider. After sales tech suppport is very important when you encounter problems or questions you may need to enquire with them. Are they easy to reach and are they able to answer/solve the problems within a reasonable time frame? Personally, I chose neither of the 2 webhosts you mention as I'm not in the same country as them (and their servers), nor satisfied with the plan specifications they offered. You may want widen your choice to 3 or 4 webhosts/plans and choosing the one you feel is most suitable. I'm currently using one of Vodien's shared webhosting plans.
  18. My question is simple :Is DEDICATED IP ADDRESS Compulsory for Prestashop Answer: NO. Prestashop works fine even with Dynamic Shared IP, usually meant for residential broadbands. PS: Just remember to: A) Do the relevant code modifications if you're using PS1.3 or set Check IP on the cookie to No in Preferences if you're using PS1.4 to avoid auto-logout from admin panel.
  19. In Prestashop 1.4, Tabs is moved to Employees as shown in the image in attached.
  20. Do your suppliers give you the price lists in Excel / OpenOffice Calc or CSV file formats? If that is so, you can use BO's import feature to do that.
  21. You can create your updates using OpenOffice Calc or MS Excel, convert it into CSV and import the updates. This will update the weight or price of all the products in the file in one go.
  22. You can use the contents in these threads as reference: 1. http://www.prestashop.com/forums/viewthread/86913/ 2. http://www.prestashop.com/forums/viewthread/92016/
  23. Seems like it may be caused by the module Mail Alerts. Did you set a Quantity Threshold for Out Of Stock?
