Backups are important, but who wants to do them manually? Zen Cart AutoBackup automates the process, so you can rest easy knowing your backups are taken care of.
AutoBackup uses your hosting service’s cron facility, so it runs without any manual intervention needed. You can set retention periods for backups so that a certain number are kept for every daily backup, every weekly backup and every monthly backup.
Search has long been a pain point for ecommerce vendors. Take a look at some of the ways I have addressed search in Zen Cart, including creating custom pages for frequent searches, adding fields to the products table to permit searching, using jQuery, and designing custom sideboxes.
More options for you to sell a bundle and make a bundle! My new Kitbuilder for Zen Cart module is the latest entry in my series of Zen Cart Bundling options. KitBuilder allows you to build “kits” of related products (without attributes), which are all sold together with a single click. Kitbuilder even comes with a kit marketing plugin that allows you to show off your kits in a centerbox on your home page.
But the good folks at nailessentialz pointed out a problem: if you edit an order placed before today, the lookback period should begin and the point of the order, not at the current date. (This would be relevant for stores that set a lookback period units value of “Days”, “Weeks” or “Months”, rather than “All.”)
For example, if the current day is September 12, and the Lookback Period Units is “Days” and the Period Count is “10”, for an order placed on Aug 27 20:43:50, the lookback window is from Aug 17 20:43:50 to Aug 27 20:43:50. The old code would have computed the lookback window as September 2 – September 12.
This can be done but there are a lot of variables involved. (If it was a simple mod, I’d package it up as a simple mod!) So I offer it as a service. It’s called Free Shipping Recalculation. It recomputes your free shipping threshold based on the subtotal after discounts.
Free Shipping Recalculation works, whether you are using Admin->Modules->Shipping->Free Shipping Options or Admin->Modules->Order Totals>Shipping to set your free shipping threshold.
This video demonstrates the creation of product packages (groups of individual products) that can be sold as a discounted group with a single click in Zen
Cart, using my mods Discount Chooser and Extended Family.
