2.- Installation
  • Download and unzip microCART.zip file
  • Upload all the files in your site keeping the same structure. eg cart.php must be on the same level as your forum.php
  • CMOD 777 the directories:
    • microcart
    • microcart/photos
    • microcart/photos/thumbs
    • microcart/photos/tmp
    • microcart/editor/files
    • microcart/editor/flash
    • microcart/editor/media
    • microcart/editor/photos
    • microcart/pdf
    • microcart/fonts
    • microcart/images
  • Login to your admincp and import product-microcart.xml
3.- Configuration
  • First of all you need to setup microCART General Options. The most important option is to set the path to the directory where you'll store the files. For security reasons you must create a directory over the public area. Then write the full path in the options. Don't forget the trailing slash at the end. Example:
    • /home/username/downloads/
  • Setup Usergroup permissions. Available options are:
    • Can access the store
    • Can order
    • Can Moderate. Please note that, as a way to bypass the limitation of having vB editor in admincp, I've moved the product descriprion, system messages and agreements to fronend. But only those who can moderate can access this area, and only for modifying the text. Nothing more.
  • Setup Categories and Subcategories for your store.
  • Setup your Agreements (at least one)
  • Start adding products but from AddOns and Services. It will helps you to save time, as when at a later time you add a main product, you can choose the addons.
  • To work properly with HTML editor you need to edit settings.php locating at: microcart/editor/assetmanager/ and set the corrects paths.
4.- Product Options (Configurations)

In version 1.0.3 has been added support for configurable options. Not just simple text choices, but options that can increase/decrease the total price. That's why you need to pay extra attention on entering these options to avoid pricing mess.

First of all, you can find these options as "Extra Options" on the droplist on the right of each product (AdminCP). By choosing it you'll get a list of all available configurable options for the specific product. You can Edit and Delete it, or you can change the display order. Click "New Extra Option" to add one.

There is no need for explanation of title. Write there anything that you want. Examples of configuration options are: Color, Size, Ram, Hard disk etc. So let's write Size. In the box below you must add all the available options keeping the format:
Amount|Name

Examples:
  • 0|Normal : This option dosen't changes the product's price and it will appears as: Normal
  • 15.30|Large : This option increases the price by 15.30 and it will appears as: Large (+$15.30) ... The currency symbol is the one that you've setup. DON'T NEED TO ENTER CURRENCY SYMBOL HERE
  • -7.50|Mini : This option decreases the price by 7.50 and it will appears as: Mini (-$7.50). ONCE MORE: DONT ADD CURRENCY SYMBOL.
5.- Product Terminology
  • Price: Is the normal price that you're selling a product (eg 49.95)
  • Discount: Is the amount that you're giving as discount. eg if you place 4.95 here the price will appear as $49.95 $45.00
  • Special (Bundle) price. Currently not in use
  • AddOns. Are products that someone can order in the same form (eg Installation, Brand Free etc).
  • Special Bundle. Currently not in use
6.- Understanding Shipping Zones
To understand Shipping fields (Base weight, Base fare, Extra weight, Extra fare), you must know how the companies (at least the most of them) are working. They're saying: Till 3 kilos the rate is $15. More than 3 kilos you must add $3 per 500gr (1/2 kilos). In this example you must setup:
  1. Base weight 3000 (in grammars) or 3 (in kilos)
  2. Base fare 15.00
  3. Extra weight 500 (in grammars) or 0.5 (in kilos)
  4. Extra fare 3.00
  5. Please note to use the same as the definied in the general option weight unit. Setting in options kgr and here grammars is the best way to mess your shop.
7.- Friedly notes
  • Please let my copyright link in place. Thank you.
  • When rating, please remember that you're rating the script and not me as a person. Thank you.
  • Don't spam this thread with comments about my personality. Comment my work only. Thank you.
8.- Demo9.- Warning

The included HTML Editor is commercial, so you can use it ONLY within microCART directory.

One of my users is getting a weird issue, after adding something to cart he is presented with a screen which has the following Tabs.

Dashboard
Downloads
Products
My Details.

The Breadcrumb says Shop > My Account

He is unable to add items to cart, and pay for them.

Please advise.

Thanks

The my account page is for products they have paid for not where they can buy products from.
So if your member is trying to buy products from that page they are in the wrong place.
As thats an over view of products paid for.

So, how do they end up at this page? i cant see any links to it? If i follow the steps hes doing i.e. clicking on "add to basket" i go straight to basket, he goes to this my account area.

Whats the direct URL to this accounts area?

Yes, micheal332001....as i only would sell only Services and for the others if i would sell skins or documents yes i would like it to be turned on. this would be very beneficial for many users/clients.

Thank you for your reply,

Can someone please help. I have installed everything and it seem's to have installed without a hitch. I have a few products added. However, I get some error about a security token missing when trying to add to cart. The usergroup has permission to purchase.

I should have mentioned I downloaded the MICROCART_114_2802011.zip version.


I also notice when clicking the "add to cart" button, it's taking me to http://www.mysite.com/search.php?do=process

Why? Please help

Can you elaborate a little on how this works, as this may be the reason my Screenshots aren't working.
* /home/username/downloads/
Do I put an actual username in there? in the file it's listed as: /home/***username***/downloads/
Do I need the *'s??
Thanks, Mike

Mike, you need to put your path there. The path to the directory that you are using for the downloads. You don't need the *'s in there, they did that to give folks to the idea it needed to be changed with your actual username on the server.

ok, created it without the *'s and it's one folder under my forum and used my username like this: home/forum/username/files and I still can't get my screenshots or thumbnails to appear.
Thanks for the input. Folders are chmodd to 777 I'm out of guess's


UPdate: I found that the Thumbnail for the screen shot is going to forum/microcart/photos/thumbs. The thumbnail is there. The Screenshots are ending up the photo's folder but... Size is 0kb. This tells me that the ABOVE path is for Downloadable files for purchase on a per user basis and not for pics.

So, why would the images get uploaded but at 0kb? What's holding it up? yikes

Thanks for the help... hope developer hops on here tonite!
