@admin and susnos: Thanks so very much! Very helpful. In the process of updating the whole look and feel of the site and switching over to Athahualpa which accepts custom CSS a bit more elegantly (i.e. without losing it with an upgrade! I’ll give these a try.
Yipes. I’m an idiot. Forgot I asked this a long time ago. Never pursued it.
Anyone else with same question, answer is here
You all are amazing. Time for another donation. Thanks so much!
In all honesty, I searched every css file I could find and I can’t find the phrases in question.
It w/b nice to have all the eStore emails customizable from Settings…in all your copious spare time! But I know there are far more important problems, so if I could just know the css file to change and where it’s hidden (I’m using the basic editor built into the WP plugin section of the dashboard. If there’s a better one, I’m all ears!)
When I make a manual sale, the subject for the notification email generated by estore is:
Product sale notification
These require me to contact the buyer and make payment arrangements.
When I make a paypal sale, by far the majority of sales, the subject for the notification email is:
notification of product sale
I have my email program separate them now but got into some trouble at one point because I didn’t know how to recognize the manual sales. Now…I’m a bit dyslexic and would just like to have the manual sale subject include the word manual. It’s a psychological thing. If there’s a way to do this from the settings, I looked right past it.
Oooo…thanks. The video certainly helped me understand what she’s up against, if nothing else.
Kentuckyslone: thanks for the input! It’s not a complete shift of website…my buddy has done that a lot. It was this attempt to get the tables to port over to a new installation. I think, maybe, the little video might answer our problem.
Thanks for the quick replies. You guys truly are great.
I’m working at a bit of a disadvantage here as I’m not dealing directly with cPanel. My partner’s doing that and she’s on the far side of the country and we’re both writers, not web-designers.
I’ve been using eStore for two years now (thank you!) to sell ebooks of my backlist along with two other authors. We’ve learned a lot in those two years and we wanted to give the store a whole new look. We’re trying to migrate our store to a new WP installation on the same domain. We wanted to keep the extant store live while we designed the new site in the background, then do an overnight switchover to the new store by redirecting the index page. We’ve tried migrating the entire site but the tables for plugins don’t seem to come with the posts…at least after the migration of the cvs file, we have our posts and our pages, but neither NextGen nor WP-estore can find their databases. We’re trying to figure where the problem lies.
My partner says that it’s beginning to look as if moving/migrating/mirroring is going to be more trouble than it’s worth because the new database on the fresh installation is called WRD5 and the old database is WRD1, which means *every* table and image pointer in the WRD1 database would have to be changed from a WRD1 prefix to a WRD5 prefix.
a) Does this make any sense to you? b)If so, is there an easy fix you can suggest or should we simply do all our planning on a dummy site and then shut down for however long it takes to redesign the page?
Sorry if I’m displaying my complete ignorance in this question, but thanks as always for whatever help you can suggest.
Oh…duh…Sorry…very tired. (That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.) I was thinking about the “instant download” return page you get when you actually make a purchase.
OK…got it working, but I have a different problem. This would allow anyone who knew someone’s email to download everything they’ve purchased! I was hoping for something which checks the transaction number, the way the one you use on this site does. Is there any way to have it check that as well as the email?
Nevermind…I finally got it to show up in the plugin page so I could activate it. I deleted and re-FTP’d twice…then it finally showed. I’ve installed a lot of plugins and never had a problem like this. I don’t blame anything about the plugin…just the installation of my blind sandbox site. I’ve just started using it. Going to talk to my host-handler. Thanks!
Yes…that’s where I downloaded it, but how do I install it? Do I just unzip and upload to the eStore folder? Or does it need a separate folder and separate activation? Thanks…
“eStore plugin then download and install the “Extra WP eStore Shortcodes” plugin and you will have access to more shortcodes:”
Thanks so much only…um…I hate to show how dumb I am but…how do I install the extra shortcode package? I looked in the zip file for a readme file….obviously this is something I should know…sigh…August 11, 2011 at 8:25 pm in reply to: Is it possible for a customer to save their shopping cart for later? #35084
Yes…this would be really nice! Add my vote!
While we’re finding out where to modify things… I’d really like all my “variations” boxes smaller with a different, smaller typeface. Also, on the display for the NextGen gallery, I’d like the type to be left justified rather than center. Where would I find these variables?
This is my site: http://www.closed-circle.net/WhereItsAt/?page_id=5#DTB
Yay! Will look forward to it. Any way we can get a notice when you’ve got it?
