OpenCart News and Updates

I have upgraded from to and all working fine with no errors in Error Logs of admin panel, however, I have no stats on my dashboard. I have re-uploaded all the dashboard folders and dashboard.tpl files from the original files on my server, removed all old files/folders from OC1.5.x, setup API and added in the setting, selected all items in user group section and saved, check theme, setting and still have the same issue.

When I go to Admin>Extension>extension>Dashboard and click on install of any of the stats, I get "Success: You have modified dashboards!" however the stats stays disabled.

I am really puzzled, does anyone know what is the problem?

My website started to give error immediately, it was working yesterday, the website is:

And the error is;
Fatal error: Call to undefined function utf8_substr() in /home/lkmncom/public_html/catalog/model/tool/image.php on line 11

And I cannot login to admin, too. I write down the username and password, then it shows blank (white page). When I check the error.log, it writes the same error;
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function utf8_substr() in /home/lkmncom/public_html/admin/model/tool/image.php on line 11

Thank you in advance for your help.

thanks for reply

actually,I have solved the problem,not need to install any extension

just to add a new Geo Zone for a country,such as name it "shipping to American"

Steps to create a Geo Zone
Log into your OpenCart Dashboard.
Go to System > Localisation > Geo Zones.
Click “Insert” in the upper right corner to create a new Geo Zone and fill out the fields. ...
Click “Add Geo Zone” button and Select the Country and Zone from the Drop down menus(in my case ,I donot select any zones)
Click "Save" in the upper right corner.

go to extension-shipping-Weight Based Shipping
now you can select "shipping to American " on the left list,and then add the rules for shipping fee.
this setting only show one the checkout page when a registered customer's country is American.

share in case someone has the same issue.

Just thinking out loud but I have 2 languages installed, English and Thai. Could this have something to do with it? Cant find anything specific to this problem out there.

-error log

That's the error log. I tried adding cgi.force_redirect = 0; to the admin php.ini file, but it didn't help. Hosting service said there were not prerequisites for running opencart.

You've got something going on that can't be debugged like this. A domain needs to be seen and access may be required. I think you're best to restart your install. If a clean install doesn't work, it's either your FTP program settings or your hosting company that is an issue.

hola rjcalifornia, muchas gracias.
no puedo hacerlo, parece que soy bastante limitado.
lo único que pude hacer es replicar el menú de categoría (con sus subcategorías, <li>) en home, pero no puedo hacer que me muestre los productos debajo de las mismas.
muchísimas gracias, saludos!!!

I have installed Export/Import on

When exporting "products" using default settings

I added one product change but when trying to import get error below.

You have to define the missing option values values first, before using them in your products import.

If I tick these options and export and then re-import there is no errors? But un-ticked and causes errors as mentioned.

Use option_id instead of option name in worksheets 'ProductOptions' and 'ProductOptionValues'
Use option_value_id instead of option_value name in worksheet 'ProductOptionValues'
Use attribute_group_id instead of attribute_group name in worksheet 'ProductAttributes'
Use attribute_id instead of attribute name in worksheet 'ProductAttributes'
Use filter_group_id instead of filter_group name in worksheets 'ProductFilters' and 'CategoryFilters'
Use filter_id instead of filter name in worksheets 'ProductFilters' and 'CategoryFilters'
