  2. Hi everyone, Confused or what, I need a basic explanation of how it works. 


    Ok, I have added 'shippers'


    Royal Mail UK

    Royal Mail Airsure



    I have put the dimensions on the product, which can be sold to UK, Europe, USA, Australia


    So how/where does Prestashop work out a shipping price as there does not seem to be a way of adding the different prices


    ie. item being shipped to UK         =   £1.55

         item being shipped to USA       =  £8.50

         item being shipped to Europe   = £3.90


    and where do you enter packing as this will vary according where it is going   


    I must be missing something here, but I am finding it very frustrating



    Many thanks Paul




  3. Yipeee!, text for the slide - edit in translations, why cant people just make life easy and point it out.


    Now to change the pictures, will post once I find out


    and if there is an 'editor' where do I get the editor everyone is talking about?


    Still like the theme, nearly dumped it, giving one more go



    Just found this theme and it looks as if it is just what I need, installed reasonably well, hopefully the only question:


    1. Where/How do I edit the Slider???

  4. Hi, I have tried before and will try again, when using 1-click even the lates ver I get:


    Analyzing the situation ...Shop deactivated. Now downloading (this can takes some times )...Download complete. Now extracting[Ajax / Server Error for action unzip] textStatus: "error " errorThrown:"Service Unavailable " jqXHR: " "



    the process indicator carries on but nothing happens, If I go away from the page it warns me upgrade is still in progress

  6. ok,


    so trying the basics here:




    Category is Jams


    Description is Strawberry Xtra Jam


    Weight 227


    price 3.1



    so the headers:








    Price tax incl.





    so what is Name *


    and is my headers correct?






    regards Paul

  7. Hi, I have spent the last hour trying to sort out the headers in the file and keep getting errors when I import


    ID Category Name Description Weight Price JA001 Farmshop Jams Strawberry Xtra Jam with Marc de Champagne 227g £3.10

    JA011 Farmshop Preserves Blackcurrant Preserve with Rum 227g £3.10



    should be simple, but it is being a pain, a description of what header is what would help, all I could find was this example:

    ID;Active (0/1);Name *;Parent category;Root category (0/1);Description;Meta-title;Meta-keywords;Meta-description;URLrewritten;Image URL;ID / Name of shop


    surely the header Name does'nt need the * ???


    any pointers or advise please



    many thanks Paul

  8. ok, I have a customers website which I will be changing over to prestashop.I


    installed a earlier version into a subdirectory and was going to play with it

    and then make it live. New version comes out so I deleted the old one and

    re-installed. Now when I go to the sub directory adim using my browser it shows

    in the url /newshop/admin/install/


    but all I get is

    Not Found


    The requested URL /newshop/admin/install/ was not found on this server


    any ideas? many thanks in advance /-- Paul

  9. Hi everyone, I have several sites with Prestashop running as a second page, this is for 2 reasons, 1 I have no clue on using cms and the way Prestashop edits the 'front' of the shop, 2 is that most of the sites are small company's and I need to show a lot of info on the 1st page.


    OK, is there a way of creating the login for an existing customer, and create new customer

    on my html page?



    Hiope that makes sense?



    /--- Paul
