OpenCart News and Updates


I'm running a live site on OpenCart I'm getting a lot of missing orders (where order_status_id = 0) and they are reserving inventory. These orders will be followed by a completed order for the same customer (order_status_id = 15), so I am pretty sure that they are duplicates.

When I try to delete the missing orders by filtering by status then using the trash icon, I get an SSL cert verify error message (SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed(60)!). But my SSL cert is valid.

Can I just delete the orders via the database and reclaim my inventory that seems to have been reserved by the missing order? If so, what should I delete? The order and order_product records? Or is there more to ensure that inventory is restored?

Or should I just upgrade from github? I'm a little confused about that. I can download the files from github, but I'm not sure if that would introduce database issues (due to new or changed fields).

Advice would be much appreciated.

Hello, pls who can help me out, I mistakenly delete some files from my website w.....................

I assume by files you mean php scripts ? Did you do any custom changes to the files before you tried to install the new extension? If not, then you could download the appropriate version of opencart and upload the deleted files once again.
As always it is BEST to take a complete backup before attempting to do stuff like these.

When I turn on error messages in admin I get the following message:

Notice: Undefined variable: category_id in /home1/garrysun/public_html/vqmod/vqcache/vq2-catalog_controller_product_product.php on line 40

When I look at the file: vqmod/vqcache/vq2-catalog_controller_product_product.php there is no category_id variable.

Where could this be actually coming from? I know I tried to add the category_id to my product.tpl and did so successfully. Could it be in a model or controller? I can't tell from the error message.

Sorry for the delay, been quite busy lately. Hmm thats weird, its still doing the same thing. Scripts are being loaded without the WWW. As long as its set to the correct www or non-www in both config files, or the settings of any multistore, it should make OC create all that stuff right. Have you tried this without your custom theme to see if it does the same thing?

And redirect loop means its stuck in its own rule. The htaccess rule you made is pretty close, try this one instead and see if it works out for you. It should, but then again i dont use co.uk :)
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^thermalprinterpaper\.co\.uk$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ "http\:\/\/www\.thermalprinterpaper\.co\.uk\/$1" [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{HTTPS_HOST} ^thermalprinterpaper\.co\.uk$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ "https\:\/\/www\.thermalprinterpaper\.co\.uk\/$1" [R=301,L]

The back-slashes in that snippet are used for "escaping" the character directly after. So a period, it could wonk things out unless you "escape" it from other things a period could do. A \. means "stay a period, dont act like anything else". Also in that format you would need 2 of them, 1 for HTTP and 1 for HTTPS. Hope that works for ya

OpenCart's backup feature doesn't save the database structure unfortunately so you'll likely have problems.

General Support • Re: API for Opencart

20 November 2014, 11:58 pm
Well without modding out the OC login system it may be a bit tedious, especially trying to get cross domain "logged in status". Instead, it may be easier to look for oAuth support. There was an API mod i missed that apparently supports remote/oAuth catalog+customers: http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... n_id=18650

For external pages using OC logged in status, def look for oAuth. A homebrew single login system could open possibility of breach or MITM style exploits.

I admit that in our systems ive only touched the surface of the OC login system, but its clear to me that the default methods needs a boost like oAuth before being able to handle multi-realm logins/sessions.

hi all

i would like to know how to add a new position in the information part of the website.

right now if you go to catalogue > information > data
you can set the position to bottom.

i would like to add a new postion called 'top'

is there anything out there that might be able to guide me in the right direction on this one ? been trying to do this by editing the admin controler and language files with little success thus far. not so sure what needs to be done in the admin/model file...

Buonasera a tutti,

è la prima volta che mi avvicino alle statistiche ed ho scelto google analystics per avere le informazioni di andamento del sito.
Ho creato l'account e mi è stato dato uno script da aggiungere a tutte le pagine (così ci stava scritto)
Ma in realtà io vorrei monitorare tutte le pagine dove sono presenti i vari prodotti.
Adesso questo benedetto script dove devo inserirlo???

Grazie per il Vs. aiuto.

as a temp solution (until I can get it the way I want) I commented "white-space: nowrap;".
not a nice compromise but it's ok. CSS code below.

#menu > ul > li ul > li > a {
   text-decoration: none;
   padding: 4px;
   color: #FFFFFF;
   display: block;
   /* white-space: nowrap; */
   min-width: 120px;

Good Luck!

thanks for your reply Ernie!
In OpenCart (clean installation), the menu is contained in the <div id="menu"> tag which in turn is contained within the <body> tag... no luck there

apparently it is not uncommon with CSS issues, especially involving internet explorer.

i'm starting to understand why one of the stylesheets in OpenCart says "God I hate Microsoft"

arrhg, why must windows 7 ship with ie8!

do I really need to hard code the widths for each category div individually? how dynamic!
