Sorry found a extension called total order discount so if a visitor spends £100 in the cart or more they automatically get £5 off

You need to clarify this. 100 or more is in the cart or 100 or more paid in previous order?

I need to make < base href = " < ? php echo $ base ; ? > " /> in my header become my sites URL. Everytime and allways.

The php echo in header.tpl makes this my sites URL when I visit my site but my problem is that another site is making a mirror-site out of my site and somehow pointing the php echo to that false URL making every link on there site having their URL in it with links to my products and images. Instead of www.mysite.com/myproductpage it is www.fakesite.com/myproductpage. But it is stil my site, place a order and I get a order. The problem is that they only link to this site in Google search and when following the link with my company name and productname you se porn!
I noticed that my sales droped and customers asked me if my site was hacked. My host say my site is clean of malware and that this other site probably is using an invisible frame with my site in it. They can not help me....

If I am able to write http://www.mysite . com in the php echo instead of letting the php echo fetch this from somewhere else. I think I would be able to stop this fake site from using my site for clickbait.

I have been searching this forum and google and youtube for the last week to find an answer, does anyone have any idea how to force the base url to be my sites url and no other? Or any other way to prevent a live-frame mirror of my site?
I use an old OC and was happy with this since my ranking at Google is really high, many of my produts are top 3 at Google. No 4 is the fake site that uses my company name and the name of my products, it is easy to click the wrong link....

Is there a easy way to find out what IPs are visiting my OC shop? Maybe I can block the IP that is visible when the fake site is using that mirror in the site. My host say they can not help me and that there is no logs with Ip numbers.

The "funny" thing about this is that I probably can verify this fake site as my own at Google webmaster tools because if I but the verification code in my www.mysite.com/verificationcode it is also visible at www.fakesite.com/verificationcode. Then I might be ably to
temporarily block access to the search results in Google search (for 90 days at a time) But that is my last resort, I do not want Google to think that I own spamsites and I want to solve this and prevent it from happen again.

I do think that it is a OC issue since the header that I see when visiting the fake site (not using Google search) are identical to my my header with the only difference that the base URL is diffrent.

Can I somehow use my base URL that is not generated from somewhere but instead that I use my site URL permanent at the php echo?

(...) for review, it should not be a problem, to add an EDITOR
Thanks for these links.

I admit that I did not consider the solution to add globally a new code editor.

I will examine this option, on the basis of the possibilities offered by these links.

Let's assume this kind of case: an owner of a shop create a specific product which is a sort of assortment for pre-booking future downloadable products. When the downloadable products will be available, he would want to add these new items to the previous order, so that customers of the pre-booking assortment would be able download each element from their own accounts.

Is this kind of handling achievable and what could be the better way to proceed to this?

Hi, I'm trying to create a module like Customer Online for Opencart v.2.3.x. I've created all necessary files for Quickview and Reporting, but when I try installing it, i get Success message and the module is still uninstalled.
I've granted permissions for necessary modifications, but still the same.
Is there any files like dashboard in common directory or something else that should be modified to let me continue with installation process?

I developed a opencart website for a client and he wants it so that if £100 or more is spent then the visitor automatically gets £5 off

Is that possible to do in opencart

Thank you in advance

Η γρήγορη απάντηση είναι ότι οι πελάτες δεν θα ξέρουν την ύπαρξη του κουπονιού αν δεν τους ενημερώσεις με κάποιον τρόπο.

Δηλαδή, εσύ φτιάχνεις το κουπόνι το οποίο είναι διαθέσιμο σε όλους και πρέπει να το "επικοινωνήσεις". Για παράδειγμα μπορείς να φτιάξεις ένα Banner στην αρχική σελίδα για να το ανακοινώσεις ή μπορείς να στείλεις ένα newsletter ή να το ανακοινώσεις στο facebook. Δεν υπάρχει κάποιος αυτόματος τρόπος να μάθουν οι πελάτες για το κουπόνι μόλις το δημιουργήσεις, αν αυτό είναι που εννοείς.

Αυτό που νομίζω ότι έχεις μπερδέψει (με βάση αυτά που ρωτάς) είναι ότι το κουπόνι ανήκει σε κάποιον συγκεκριμένο πελάτη. Αυτό δεν είναι αλήθεια, τα κουπόνια μπορούν να χρησιμοποιηθούν από οποιονδήποτε. Οπότε στην τελευταία ερώτησή σου, ισχύει ότι μπορεί κάποιος να το πει και σε άλλον αλλά αυτό δεν είναι στην ουσία δώρο γιατί δεν το πληρώνει... είναι έκπτωση που κάνει το κατάστημα. Οπότε ναι τα δώρα είναι άλλη ιστορία και είναι τα vouchers όπου ο πελάτης αγοράζει μια δωροεπιταγή και το σύστημα την στέλνει στο email του "φίλου" του που θα την εξαργυρώσει.
