Okay I am having a couple issues.

I want to do a buy something from category 83 or 79, get something from category, 80,81,82 or 107 for 40% off.

So I added this:

       $this->add_cat_to_cat(83,80,"%", 40);
       $this->add_cat_to_cat(79,80,"%", 40);
       $this->add_cat_to_cat(83,81,"%", 40);
       $this->add_cat_to_cat(79,81,"%", 40);
       $this->add_cat_to_cat(83,82,"%", 40);
       $this->add_cat_to_cat(79,82,"%", 40);
       $this->add_cat_to_cat(83,107,"%", 40);
       $this->add_cat_to_cat(79,107,"%", 40); 

It discounted the 40% for the first item, but then I added another item from category 79, and another of the discount items and it did not include a discount for the second one :(

Good morning,

I am not a developer, please be kind. The Specials feature appears on the homepage as if should to members of the public however, when a customer logs into their account, the specials feature is blank and customers cannot access the deal I am offering. They don't see it in the specials area and when they click on the particular product they only see the regular price. Can anyone tell me why this is happening? I've checked the settings and the offer is made available to all customers. Using version

I have read and searched. No luck. Spent 2hrs on it so far :(

I have store A in Nevada and store B in Texas. Right now they both share tax rate for store A. How do I assign each store a tax rate? Because right now, someone in Nevada buys something from Texas, their charged with store A tax rate. Need them separate.

Please explain in detail. I am a newbie. It will help solve this.

Thanks in advance.

SSLv3 is no longer secure, most hosts will have had this enabled and you should check that it is no longer being used on your server.

TLS 1, 1.1 and 1.2 are now the only ones that are considered to be secure.

Dhaupin has already created a good thread about ways to disable here

If you have shared hosting, just message your hosting provider who will fix or confirm it already has been fixed. If anyone has any good links about helping with this please post below.

I'll sticky this topic for a week.

There is a Google post about their WebTables data extraction found here http://googleresearch.blogspot.com/2014 ... s-now.html

It makes alot of sense, they are relying on tables as a trigger to pull specs and things. Its pretty clear from the example that it is just a table with no markup, plain Jane. There is no data highlighter or syntax for specs anyways. Looking at how they (as well as Wikipedia) set up the table(s)...they dont seem to use multiple <thead> or <tbody> and opt for <th> in 1 single tbody for inner-table delegations. Seems worth exploring a bit.

First question, has anyone gotten their product specs to show up yet in Google with default attrib table? In products, the specification tab renders the attributes. Here is what the default OC structure looks like (multiple thead and tbody, no th):
<table class="attribute">
         <td colspan="2">Attribute Group 1</td>
         <td>Attribute Name 1.1</td>
         <td>Attribute Value 1.1</td>
         <td colspan="2">Attribute Group 2</td>
         <td>Attribute Name 2.1</td>
         <td>Attribute Value 2.1</td>

Second question, in order to more closely mimic examples and Wikipedia tables, should the specs table structure look something like this? We know this structure can trigger these extra datas in serp...its unknown whether the OC style does the same. Adding classes can help distinguish the cells for other things like MS or Yahoo:
<table class="attribute">
         <th colspan="2" class="group">Attribute Group 1</th>
         <th class="attrib">Attribute Name 1.1</th>
         <td class="value">Attribute Value 1.1</td>
         <th colspan="2" class="group">Attribute Group 2</th>
         <th class="attrib">Attribute Name 2.1</th>
         <td class="value">Attribute Value 2.1</td>

This can be achieved by changing the if ($attribute_groups) that creates div id="tab-attribute" in product.tpl(s) to something like the following. It seems too liable to use vQ for this swap since other tabs, attrib mods, and whatnot may wreck offset/index:
  <?php if ($attribute_groups) { ?>
  <div id="tab-attribute" class="tab-content">
    <table class="attribute">
        <?php foreach ($attribute_groups as $attribute_group) { ?>
          <th colspan="2" class="group"><?php echo $attribute_group['name']; ?></th>
        <?php foreach ($attribute_group['attribute'] as $attribute) { ?>
          <th class="attrib"><?php echo $attribute['name']; ?></th>
          <td class="value"><?php echo $attribute['text']; ?></td>
        <?php } ?>
      <?php } ?>
  <?php } ?>

At first it looks a little wonky, so editing some css areas to include <th> too should fix it:
 td, th, input, textarea, select, a, #header .links, #header .links a, a.button, input.button, .box .box-heading, .htabs a, .manufacturer-heading, .product-list .price, .product-list .price-tax, .product-info .price-tax, .product-info .price .discount, .product-info .cart .minimum, .attribute tr th.group, .attribute thead td, .attribute thead tr td:first-child, .compare-info thead td, .compare-info thead tr td:first-child, .checkout-heading, .product-info .price .reward {
   line-height: inherit;
   font-size: inherit;
.attribute tr th.group, .attribute thead td, .attribute thead tr td:first-child {
   color: #000;
   font-weight: bold;
   background: #F7F7F7;
   text-align: left;

.attribute tr th, .attribute tr td:first-child {
   color: #000000;
   font-weight: bold;
   text-align: right;
   width: 20%;
.attribute tr th, .attribute td {
   padding: 7px;
   color: #4D4D4D;
   /* text-align: center; */
   vertical-align: top;
   border-right: 1px solid #DDDDDD;
   border-bottom: 1px solid #DDDDDD;

If youre looking for how to utilize the new automated spec snippets, this may help. Hope that makes sense!

perhaps you can just use the featured products module and make the changes i did with index.php.

please read my post :


perhaps is useful, and very easy to do.

Thank you so much. I have left a voice mail with the hosting company and hope they will get back to us. I figured these were issues that the hosting company need to address. It is a shame that GoDaddy doesn't support PCI Compliance...

The only thing i can help you with that. I was have a project with Vulnerabilities (not opencart project) but i didn't have a lot of time to fix it.
That vulnerabilities need to get fixed by your hosting company (but they don't have to do it).
My reccomendation is to move to webhosting.uk.com as I did. They care a lot about PCI compliance.
Otherwise if the server is on a shared hosting account the hosting company will not help you.
Those vulnerabilities you mention some of them maybe just need to get update and will get fixed. As I mention you the most of companies don't provide PCI Compliance support.
Godaddy for example which is a big company they don't provide.
Hostgator they provide but they are slow....
I recommend you webhosting.uk.com . I was have a dead line of 5 days. I was have more than 20 errors and it was work for more than one month and webhosting.uk.com help me alot
