POWERSTORE 2 product listing and email confirmation challenges....

POWERSTORE 2 product listing and email confirmation challenges....

Hello WebAssist Technical Support or WebAssist Forum Member,

My name is Budhi and I am a new WebAssist Forum member.
I have installed PowerStore 2 properly at my webhosting and entered 2 product items for trying the PowerStore products store...

There are 2 problem I am facing new and need your advice :confused::

1. Even though there are 2 items which I can see using admin username & password. These two items can't be seen in registered user online webpage at all.

2. I have uploaded PowerStore 2 not at root directory of my webhosting i.e. mwstore/...
When I did register into the store as an online user, even though I received email confirmation but when I click the link to acknowledge it, the link gave me an error message i.e. "page not found..."

Can you help me in both of the situation above, I have tried to look for QA but so far I could not find any answer yet.

Thank you and I am waiting for your advice soon.

You will have to set the products to be live. Go to the admin section and click to update the product. You will have to check the option next to Available online to make the online user be able to view the product.

What is the url that the confirmation email sends to you?

add the mwstore to the $WAGLOBAL_Root_URL, but leave the others the same.

Editing the menu you can use Menu Writer.

You can use SiteAssist to create a template and then apply the template to your pages. There's a how to on this on the PowerStore Support page:

Its under the Archived documentation titled Customizing your PowerStore site Design

Another PowerStore How To questions...

Thank Jimmy for your advices, I have add subfolder to my URL Root Global parameter, and it's work fine now.

Relating to using CSS menu writer and Site Assist Professional extension products that can be used to make local modification correspondingly to PowerStore 1/2 I have another question to you.

I do not have PowerStore 1, in this situation what should I do?

I have new question;
1. How do I change the US currency to Indonesia currency (Rp.)
2. Beside the currency how about the separation characters in thousand and decimal position i.e. the comma and period. from $1,234.56 to Rp.1.234,56
3. Also the date format from mm/dd/yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy.

Thank you so much for your kind support to my challenges.

I am waiting for your good advice soon.

Waiting to hear from you...

Hello Jimmy,

I am still waiting to hear from you relating to my previous questions:

1. Using my CSS Menu Writer and SiteAssist to modify Power 2 design layout tutorial....
2. Changing Currency of Power 2 specific to Indonesia users;
1. Currency become : Rp.
2. Date become: dd/mm/yyyy
3. Amount mask become: 1.234,56 (reverse the dot and coma position).

Thanks so much for your attention and guidance...:)

You will have to find the USD currency code and replace it with the Indonesian currency code.

Using the extensions to modify the PowerStore v2 should be very similar to modifying it in v1.

Do you have eCart? Changing the currency would be easier with eCart.

Where do you want the date changed?

In the future, if the original issue is resolved, please make a new thread to keep things organized. Thanks.

Continuation of Currency Changes etc...

Thank you Jimmy,

Next time I will closed the thread and make a new one for a new request, sorry about my ignorance.

I do have eCart3 and eCart4 Web Assist extensions, but I have not used it yet.
How do we combine PowerStore 2 with eCart4 function, is there any tutorial to read?

Relating to date, my assumption, date format will be used in Check Out printout/screen display. But right now in my PowerStore 2 testing environment, I have not set my merchant accounts i.e. with PayPal/Visa/MasterCard so I can't see my "Check Out" screen of PowerStore 2 yet.

Because of this situation, I have another related question to you which is about "Can we set parameter in PowerStore 2 so that it only send email message with detail transaction content to certain email address we assigned when there is a transaction occurs, instead of using any credit card? this is kind of indirect sales situation" Do I need to post this question in a new thread?

Thanks, I am looking forward to hear from you soon..
