Footer

If you click on the links at the bottom of the public page, you get a 404 if you don't have Powerstore installed in the root.

In the change content Footer section, all of the links are run together. This is confusing.

Yeah... I just noticed that, too!

I wonder how users will typically install this. My guess is that inside another folder will be ideal because of the fact that the directory has to be made writable.

It makes it much easier to keep the store separate from the main site.

I get a lot of hackers trying to get to the install files of common cart systems as well. Putting it another level down stops all of the hacker scripts from finding anything useful.

That was exactly my concern. I went ahead and installed the beta in its own folder.

I think the footer code will just have to be edited to assume the root and path correctly. I am going to make a few changes to the PHP code to see if I can dynamically create the correct path.

Ok... so the footer issue can be rectified right in the admin area... I didn't see it at first, but it is part of the editable content.

At first, the links have paths like this: "../privacy_policy.php".

So, I just made the links relative by removing the folder up command.

It looks as if the the same link paths were used for both the "front-end" and the "admin" sections. For the admin section, this path will actually be accurate.

But for the front end footer, WebAssist needs to adjust the install package to make the front-end footer links relative to the main folder that the PowerStore resides in.

Regards,

Brian

Hey OG and SOJO,

The footer links being broken issue has been fixed and is now working gloriously. Thanks for letting us know about it.

As for the footer sections running together in the CMS, it's the sad downfall of CMS not showing our CCS in the HTML Editor.
