Re: ISBN leading zeroes removed by Opencart

Thanks so much for your detailed reply, Butte, I will give it a go. I know there is an ISBN field in the admin part of the site, under 'Catalog', 'Products', 'Data' tab, and this includes the leading zero - but I don't know how to get that ISBN to display on the product page. Presumably, since that ...

ISBN leading zeroes removed by Opencart

Hi, I've been using this modification to add information about books I have for sale in my store: http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=139&t=50476 but when I import my book product details from my Excel file, Opencart removes all the leading zeroes on the ISBNs. When I export my products, I fin...

Re: Thumbnails not displaying in list nor grid

Should opencart be generating product thumbnails automatically? Or do I have to upload one for each product? I already have five full size images for each product, and they all work correctly on the product page, but is Opencart supposed to be generating thumbnails from one of them for each product,...

Re: Thumbnails not displaying in list nor grid

Is there anything about this in the help file? I have checked but can't find anything. If I have to manually add one image from each product, to my Excel file, I can do that, as long as I know it won't be a waste of time.

Re: Thumbnails not displaying in list nor grid

What I have worked out is that OpenCart generates the product page thumbnails only when you actually visit the product page for the first time, and then puts them in image/cache/data. So presumably it would normally generate thumbnails for the list and grid views the first time you view either of th...

Re: Thumbnails not displaying in list nor grid

Hi, I don't want to post my website publicly, sorry about that. I've uploaded all my images to image/data, and all the images display correctly in each product page, (I have 5 images for each product) i.e. the server is creating thumbnails from the large, 800px wide images I uploaded to image/data. ...

Thumbnails not displaying in list nor grid

Hi, I can't see any thumbnails of my product images in either the list or grid display, is there somewhere in the control panel that I can turn them on? (I'm sure I haven't turned them off though! I've only had OpenCart installed for a few days.)

Re: Can't search for the word 'image'

Thanks Butte, I found what I wanted using Google search, I think the forum search is a bit rubbish to be honest, but this can lead to people asking questions that have already been answered, so it's really important that it works well.

Re: Can't search for the word 'image'

Hi Butte, I'm pretty sure I tried it in quote marks as well, but I can't verify it because every time I try to search now I get the following message:

"Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. Please try again in a few minutes."

Re: Excel - how can I increment cell data with number and te

Thanks for your help Butte, but I found the solution on another website, I put this formula into cell A1: ="DSCI" & TEXT($B$1 + ROW() - 1,"0000") & ".jpg" and then put '650' into cell B1, then just dragged down the corner tab of cell A1 until I had the number of image names I needed, worked perfectl...

Re: Can I import multiple images per product?

I've worked out another way to do what I want, but I can't work out how to get Excel to generate the cell data I need, I'll start another thread about that, as it's a different sort of problem. Please ignore this thread.

Can't search for the word 'image'

Why is this? I want to search for 'image size', and it comes back with results that say 'image ignored' and just gives me results with 'size' in them. Why?

Can I import multiple images per product?

Hi, I'm using the free Import/Export extension, and I have five 800px wide images for each of my 200 odd books, as part of my Excel spreadsheet. Is there a way to import these images? Each cell is something like this: http://www.mysite.com/image/cache/data/demo/DSCI0941.jpg; http://www.mysite.com/im...

Re: Can I use Paypal without a monthly fee?

Hi Johnathan, many thanks for that, I didn't expect it to be so easy! I thought I would have to go through all the nightmare rigmarole I had to go through with X-Cart seven or eight years ago - this method is way better!

Trying to upload book list to OpenCart

Hi, I am trying to upload a spreadsheet of a list of books I have for sale on the first OpenCart site I've set up.

Re: Can I use Paypal without a monthly fee?

Hi Jonathan thanks for your reply, I've set up a business account, how do I add the API to my Opencart site?

I noticed that Opencart isn't on this page:
https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/shopping-carts

Why is that?

Hi, I am setting up a simple website to sell some secondhand books I no longer need, about 200, and I have already created an Excel spreadsheet with all the books' details, including author, title, publisher, date, ISBN, price, and five images for each book.

Grey text on grey background

Why is the Opencart site using such a ridiculously low contrast theme? You have light grey text on a light grey background, do you even know WHY? OpenCart's default template is light grey text on a white background, with virtually invisible borders and horizontal lines - WHY? Does your designer actu...
