Thanks so much, I’ve got 59 buttons to create!
I see I’ll have to go in and redo the languages, no biggie, thanks again.
Thanks for the reminder about backing up custom pages. I’ve only changed the text for the product search window (changed it to no text) and the ‘visit to the shop’ text under the empty shopping cart to something else in all the language files. Can I replace your copies of those files that come with this update with my backups without affecting the new pagination code? Thanks.
OMne more uick thing. IThanks for the reminder aout backing up custom pages.

Okay just read your article, so everything will go smoothly, I’m sure. Thanks for doing this!
Okay, I must admit it’s a bit scary for me. There are so many hours, days of work in my store. I’ll back everything up and then do it. Is all my product information stored in the plugin folder?
Sweet, thank a bunch.
Okay will do. After I click product search, the page reloads to the top of the page. Is that theme related? Is there a way to get the page to reload at the place where the results of the product search are displayed (I’m almost done, you won’t have to put up with me much longer:))
That makes perfect sense, and that’s the way I thought/knew you designed it to work, but for some reason I’m not getting it to work. I have a product-a piece of music- that has been checked off in its product description as being in multiple categories, one of which is called symphonic. I have placed the shortcode on the music store page [wp_eSore_product_search search_category=1]
I save the page, go to that music store page, type symphonic in the search window and it returns no products found. Is it because the product is in multiple categories? Ironically, when I type in the category that coincidentally has id 1, the search window returns all the products in that category. I tried the same procedure, substituting true for the number 1 in the short code, same result. I can work around this but I guess I’ve done something really obviously wrong that I’m too close to it to see.
That’s great thanks! I guess I’m not clear on the concept of category search. I understand using sortcode to return all the products in one category (I’m already doing that) I’m thinking people want to search multiple categories when they look for music i.e fast, romantic rock and roll. If I try to use the search window to search for “symphonic” category (in my store that’s id 5) okay good as long as I have search_category=5. But if another customer comes along and wants to search rock and roll using the search window (my store’s category 12) then I have to add another search window for that category. Am I misunderstanding? I can’t use the category shortcode to search all my categories at once depending on the terms typed in the search window. I thought I could use the shortcode like [wp_eStore_product_search search_category=5, 12, etc] Perhaps I shouldn’t use this method to search genres of music. It’s sort of an unusual product, like searching for clothes by color, I guess.
Yes but I haven’t turned it on yet. It seems the problem was with my template pages. The gent who wrote the code sends his apologies, all is well now. You know how it is, we amateurs, we panic.
Just wondering if there’s anything going to happen with being able to use shortcode to search multiple categories. Having the buy now button is not critical (to me) nor is, at this point, multiple search terms (which it seems is quite complicated). I’m asking because I’m about to go live with my site after cataloging over a hundred different products (music) and if they can’t be searched by category through the search window, I have to add some other key words in the product description to to trick the search window into operating that way. I already have set up pages that list a particular category and have provided links on the store page for that i.e. click here to see all the music that is of the genre rock and roll. So I have a workaround, and I realize you can’t be expected to write a custom app for every individual user, just wanted to know if it’s in the plan so that I know what write in my product descriptions. Thanks.
I think I’ve figured it out, it seems to be in i18n, and the translation files cat, spa, eng, fr, ita, ger, heb, nld
Ijust changed the text in the code of the cart.php back to the original .ESTORE_VISIT_THE_SHOP so now it displays correctly. But I’d sill like it to say “I Heart Music” I guess there’s another area where that visit the shop phrase is verified, henc, the error. Anyway I can do that? thanks.July 9, 2011 at 1:42 am in reply to: php function for shopping cart display in child theme template #34112
Wonderful, thank you.
