So glad to have finally found a post that has the exact problem I have.

I have enabled seo in admin and I have in my .htaccess file RewriteEngine on - is that write?

If I put in seo keywords on any of my category or product pages, I get the 404 error page not found.

I'm going crazy trying to fix this as I've tried to find what my issue is but have failed to do so.

Stupid question: exactly where should the .htaccess file be located? Is it supposed to be in the root directory or is it supposed to be in the actual 'store' directory? My website is a subdomain - does this make a difference?
This is my website: www.designsbydj.com.au/shop

Would be happy to show my .htaccess contents if required - I've no clue when it comes to that!

Can anyone PLEASE help???? Thanks SO much!!

I have the default template/theme running, 1.54 version and have a Frames category with sub-categories of Wall & Panels. The Wall and Panel categories both have an image uploaded for those categories. When I click on the main menu "Frame", I want both wall and panel sub-category images to show there on the "Frame" section.

How can I show the pics of the sub-categories and not the 2 text links only ?

Here is the url... http://paulalfordphotography.com/ocart2/index.php?route=product/category&path=70

Yesterday, I purchased template monster template #50758 (Home Decor - Responsive) from the OpenCart website. Since I had valid data already entered in my store (Opencart version, I decided to try the "Update" procedure (instead of full install) and that really messed up my store. So, I totally removed my store (using Softaculous removal procedure), and deleted all files and databases that remained.

I then used the FULL INSTALL package to reinstall OpenCart plus the template (including sample data). Everything appeared to work correctly. I can even modify existing category and inventory descriptions to substitute my own "real" items. HOWEVER, when I tried to add my own new inventory category, it would not let me save my work. Similarly, trying to define a new inventory item also did not work. There may be other problems, but I'm too frustrated to try anything else until this problem is resolved.

I tried contacting TemplateMonster for support, but they claim not to have my order on file (despite me sending them my OpenCart purchase receipt). I tried contacting OpenCart but have not yet received a reply. At this point, I am totally stuck and nobody appears willing to take responsibility and help me.

Has anyone seen this type of problem before and do you know what I should do to correct the problem?

Thank you for any assistance. I realize it's turkey day in the US, but not everyone lives in the US :(

Hi all theme developers,

As it is a bit harder to create theme settings for Opencart 2.0 than 1.5.6. (since this->config->get cant be called from the template files), we decided to figure out a solution to store large amount of settings to be used in the template files. Our solution don't require modifications to the catalog/controller files.

Instead, all it takes is a few line of code in index.php. Then, you can use all values stored in the theme panel directly in any of your template files.

Our plan is to create a starting kit for theme developers. The starting kit will contain:

- An admin module, with well commented code, containing the following elements:
- Simple text input, both single language/multilingual
- Custom blocks using the editor, both single language and multilingual
- Select lists
- Google webfonts selection
- Image uploader
- Image selection, for background patterns etc

This is aimed to be used for theme developers to create advanced themes without using tons of vQmod scripts. With the kit, it will be much easier to create theme settings.

So, the question is, is it worth doing this sort of extension you think? Any interest to use it?

I should have provided a link to my website:


Also when I log into the backend it is just a blank screen.

Ik ben op zoek naar een oplossing voor verkoop voor bv 10 dozen maar waar ook een pallet(146 dozen) tegelijk te bestellen is. Het mooiste is als de klant op de optie pallet druk dat erbij quantity gelijk het aantal dozen staat in dit voorbeeld 146.
Zijn hier oplossingen voor of modules kan niks vinden op het internet.

alvast bedankt,

Ben op zoek voor een Opencart installatie naar een popup die een boodschap geeft dat er nog producten in de winkelwagen staan bij het verlaten van de webshop (dus het wegklikken van de shop).
Sommige klanten bestellen producten en bsluiten dan toch niet af te rekenen maar het scherm van de webshop af te sluiten.
Suggesties zijn van harte welkom.

Yes, of course... Thank you! ;D

I really should have known this as I made some changes to this table for another modification I was working on.
