Re: Frequent Website Visits (SPAM?)

Having blocked the IP's above last night, I woke up this morning to find that when I search my website on google, it doesn't display unless I search the full website, e.g. http://www.brand.co.uk. I used to only have to search "brand". Could this have been google crawling my website after all, and ma...

Re: Frequent Website Visits (SPAM?)

order allow,deny
deny from 159.203.211.
deny from 45.55.0.172
deny from 162.243.139.251
allow from all

Thats seems to have them all covered, does that sound like it would work on?

Just google for "block bots in robots.txt and htaccess" - there're plenty different solutions to try and ...

Re: Frequent Website Visits (SPAM?)

And btw, even if I did manage to block them all, what if it turns out to be a google bot? If I block that, then the google bots will be unable to crawl my site. That can't be a good thing?

Re: Frequent Website Visits (SPAM?)

Today thousands of bots crawl the internet. It's quite hard to define, which one is crawling your site. But you can block it both in robots.txt and .htacess files. Thanks for your reply, how would I go about blocking it though, I am presuming you would block it by the IP address, but if you look ab...

If it is, how do I stop them? And ...

Enable GZIP Compression (No Effect)

According to GTmetrix, I needed to Enable gzip compression. Firstly, I went into the admin panel and set the compression to 4, then tried 6. Both had no effect at all. I then submitted a ticket to my hosting provider to see if anything needs activating there end. I had a reply to say he has added th...

PCI Compliant?

But what if you are using for example, Paypal, or Stripe, that you enter your card details, without being directed out of your website. EG. You enter your card details on my website checkout page, but the deta...

Re: Editing display names of shipping methods

The language text for shipping methods is in /catalog/language/english/shipping/. Shipping methods with multiple rates per geo zone (like Weight Based Shipping) pull their text from the geo zone name. Johnathon, I have seen a few replies from you advising people to go into the English > Shipping fo...

Re: No Fee Checkout?

0.8% is for Bitcoin: My Stripe Payment Gateway does allow you to accept Bitcoin, but Stripe takes 0.8% of the payment (up to a max of $5). In terms of UK cards, I haven't heard of any issues with them. Stripe started in the U.S., but is a world-wide processor available in a bunch of countries, so I...

Re: No Fee Checkout?

ALL credit card processors will take a fee. The only options for no-fee payment methods would be (1) bank transfer, which requires the customer manually wire/ACH money, and is included with OpenCart by default, or (2) use something like Bitcoin, though you'd have to find a payment gateway that does...
