  1. Unfortunately maybe my version is too old. If you click on that link you provided, there's no option to download it - and from my backend when I do a search for it - nothing comes up. I do have a notification on my backend that says "You can update to PrestaShop - download now" and the button takes me to the link you posted. I can only assume that for newer versions it's a default, but for older versions it required to be manually downloaded, and for some reason Prestashop have taken it away. I have tried to email support but to no avail. I had been meaning to transfer to shopify for a while, but this has unfortunately forced my hand.
  2. Hi all, I have had Prestashop for a long time and never upgraded it, however now due to still running an older version of 1.6, I am getting inundated with the spam bots - and now my host provider is threatening to deactivate my hosting if I don't get it resolved. A basic captcha doesn't work, so upgrading to seems to be the best option. However, when I goto this link - the option to download the module is not available: https://addons.prestashop.com/en/data-migration-backup/5496-1-click-upgrade.html Anyone know why it's no longer available? And does anyone have a copy kicking around I could use please? Thanks Luke
  3. Where have you gotten the 1-click upgrade module from please? I tried the addon page but although it loads there's no option to download: https://addons.prestashop.com/en/data-migration-backup/5496-1-click-upgrade.html
  4. Hi team, Has anyone got some advice on where to look for a visual overview of where all of the hooks are located? I know this has been asked previously, and there was a link provided to this document: http://doc.prestashop.com/display/PS15/Hooks+in+PrestaShop+1.5 However it still doesn't give a visual representation of where the hooks are, and Live Edit mode is confusing as hell. Essentially it's because for a new site I am working on, I want to be able to add in custom text boxes / content, and be able to position them wherever I want on the page. However with a test module and site I am using, I specify a hook for the text box, and 9/10 times it doesn't appear where I *think* it should based on the hook location (Header and Footer seem to be the only easily discernable locations at present). If anyone has any tutorials/reading materials that I can look at, I would really appreciate it. Many thanks Luke
  5. Hi all, I am looking for some recommendations on a theme(s) with a specific piece of functionality, and I am finding it very very hard to find. Essentially - I am looking for a theme that has an inbuilt dynamic text box on the main page, so that I can put in my own custom HTML code, or just news updates, etc (an example of this is www.yoyoshop.co.uk - this uses OpenCart instead of Prestashop, but the text at the top saying 'Welcome to YoyoShop' and the bit of blurb underneath is actually in a simple text module. I can edit it from the back-end, embed videos or whatever I like into it, and I can also move it around the page (for example I can put it between the Best Sellers block and Featured Products block if I want to. I know that there are a couple of dynamic content/text box addons that you can get from the store, however having another Prestashop site already, I have found that with prebuilt templates, a lot of them don't cater well to having additional addons installed (in fact one company whos template I currently use said it's essentially impossible to add any additional addons that alter the physical look of the template - due to how it's encoded). As such, I thought it might be easier to try and find a template that already has one of these text boxes present on the main page, to save messing around with downloading multiple templates to test the various text box addons to find out which works. If anyone can link/recommend to some templates that feature this, I'd really appreciate it. Many thanks Luke
  6. Hi everyone, This is a bit of an odd question - but hoping someone can comment. Originally I had the default traffic module running on the dashboard - the one that shows in Prestashop when you first install it. It didn't really show a great deal of detail, just simply Visits / Unique Users and the traffic source always showed as direct - and I wanted to see if I could get some more detailed info. After clicking on it, it suggested I install Google Analytics, and after a bit of a faff, I managed to get my analytics account set-up, create a project, get it all authenticated, etc etc. Generally my website stats would show around 20,000 visitors a month, so that's several hundred every day and has been consistently like that over the last 10 months. Now, however, after 24 hours it's only showing 55 visitors to my site? Granted google analytics seems to be working - in that it gives more info on source traffic (i.e. if it was direct, from google, from bing, etc etc) but I am wondering why this figure is now so low? Has anyone else experienced this? I had often thought that maybe the reason for the data being so high was bots/random traffic hitting my site, and now with google analytics maybe it doesn't show all of those access attempts? If anyone could comment it would be greatly appreciated The site in question is www.yoyovillage.co.uk Many thanks Luke
  7. Hi everyone, So having ran my prestashop store for 9 months now, I am trying to get more into the nitty gritty of how it all works so that I can customise the there I am using a bit more (as it's far from perfect). One thing I am trying to do is be able to add in some kind of blocks into my theme where I can put a bit of dynamic content (or even just simple pictures that link to other pages). My website is www.yoyovillage.co.uk I am trying to attain something like on http://yoyostore.cz/ where you can see they have seperate blocks for 'New Arrivals', 'First Yoyo', etc. Is there a module anyone can recommend that will allow me to do this? Or is it even easier then that and something I am just missing? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Luke
  8. I have been looking for an addon like this FOR AGES! Thank you soooo much! Works exactly how I want!!
  9. Hi guys, Apologies if this is the wrong section to ask this - but I have a question relating to Prestashop's inbuilt SEO My primary domain is www.yoyovillage.co.uk - however I have additional domains that also point to the server my site is hosted on (www.yoyovillage.com for example). Now when you do a search for anything relating to yoyo shops, or uk yoyo store, etc, the default URL that is displayed in Google is always www.yoyovillage.com, even if I do a google search for www.yoyovillage.co.uk - although it's displayed, it says "Did you mean www.yoyovillage.com"? Although this ultimately isn't an issue, as either way they get to my site, I would kinda prefer the .co.uk to display by default (being a UK based store) - anyone have any idea how this occurs and if it's possible to amend? Or does google just prioritise .com over .co.uk? Many thanks Luke
  10. It's in the subject www.yoyovillage.co.uk
  11. Heya Tuk66, Thanks for the comments And yeah it's meant to be slightly off to the right - it was a part of the template I purchased hehehe
  12. Hi guys, My store is finally live! Thank you to all the various members of the community who answered my questions and were able to get me to this point. The store isn't perfect, but I would love some honest, constructive feedback. My skills are limited so any changes I would need to probably look at amending code within the CSS file (something I have been able to avoid to this point) - but any feedback would be greatly received Many thanks Luke
  13. Hi guys, So I am using a custom theme (this might be the issue right here lol) and the theme has an image hooked into the 'Top column blocks' section of the site. I am trying to apply a link to this, but it's not working. I have tried using a basic mouse over, and even just the image with a URL link, but when I visit the section on my site, and move the mouse over the image, there's no option to click it. (The hook section is to the right of the main image, and image I am trying to apply a link to is the UK Players Forum image) Is this maybe a section of the site where only images can be placed, and nothing else? If so, does anyone know how to amend this? If anyone can assist it would be greatly appreciated Many thanks Luke
  14. Hi JDub, I was trying to achieve the exact same thing, and thanks to your guidance I managed to do it, al-be-it in a slightly different way. The thumbnail images for the subcategories (the ones that are 125x125) I found were the ones labelled as (for example) 11-medium_default.jpg so all I did was simply make a 125x125 thumbnail equivalent (as to be fair the thumbnails I wanted were actually drastically different to the menu bars I had used for each sub categories main page) so for this category thumbnail it now looks like the below, compared to the others which are simply squashed versions of their subcategory banner: Many thanks for your post bud - saved me having rubbish thumbnails! I think it's ridiculous though that Prestashop doesn't give you this option - ironically the category page in the back-end actually has a 'thumbnail' image option, but I have no idea what this is for or where it goes! Luke
  15. Many thanks for the reply However forgive me if I sound like a numpty - but I can't browse to that page, and I can't find a config option on the back end. So does that mean I have to download that file via FTP and manually edit it? If so that's fine, however if that is the only way to do it - I don't understand why Prestashop would have taken out that function from their software? Many thanks Luke
