Zen Cart 1.5.7 Release

Sure as I live and breathe! I sent out an email newsletter and only a few hours later, they released the version! I still will not update carts – I always prefer to wait at least 6 months so that most bugs can be fixed first. But I’m really happy with this release and as it works on php 7.4, it may be that some folks gotta have it now. The release announcement is here: https://www.zen-cart.com/showthread.php?226873-Zen-Cart-v1-5-7-released! The first set of changes I’ll list here for… Read more

In Times of Crisis

I don’t know about you but being forced to stay home, as we are at high risk during these perilous times, gives me the opportunity to review, regroup and innovate my digital life.

If I’ve installed a template for you, please contact me or create a support ticket to arrange for an update. (free for maintenance customers). It’s not major but enhances cart security, taking advantage of pieces of Zen Cart 1.5.6. I also removed the COWOA – checkout without account – from the template so now no core files are changed. This makes the… Read more

How to Switch WordPress to SSL

Securing your WordPress site is quite simple. After your secure certificate is installed, go to Settings > General. There are two blanks for the WordPress address and the site address which may be the same. Just add in that s to http in both and save. If your site has switched to mandatory SSL, you’ll have to make those changes in the database. This really isn’t hard but can be scary. If you can access phpMyAdmin (cPanels all have that link – some hosting companies hide it), go to your… Read more
