It should certainly be possible to have products with spaces in their name. Actually, a number of the demo products have such a space.
Could you make a screenshot? Is quantity above zero?
Without checking this: Reference is an arbitrary string, isn’t it? Often seen like demo_1, demo_2, etc. It’s just a coincidence that this string happens to be a number in your case.
Product IDs are pretty much unchangeable. One can change them in the database, of course, but this would break relationships to pretty much all other tables. If you insist on a particular ID, delete the product and re-create it via CSV import. Regular product creation doesn’t even allow to set a particular ID.
Agreed, Wikipedia has its own mindset. A mindset which isn’t always obvious to mere humans. I’m occasionally participating there and as such, gained a few privileges. Not much, but something. And I also engaged in a couple of deletion battles, which gives a lot of insight into how these Wikipedians think and act. On top of that, distinct language wikis also come with somewhat distinct mindsets.
In German Wikipedia it’s perfectly fine to have unfinished pages in user space, as long as it doesn’t stretch the ruleset too much (e.g. by being straight advertising or a pure link collection or a copyright violation).
As @DavidP says, having a WP page has quite some benefits. Wikipedia kind of defines what’s relevant and also what’s true these days. About everybody looks there, first.
A few keys for success:
That said, I can’t find this page in the deletion logs. User Inetbiz was created in 2010, its user page deleted in 2015 for advertising. Sub-page thirty_bees exists, but has a one-edit history only. Wikipedia never forgets, so where is this page?
User pages are fine for drafting and development, but they don’t show up in search engines. To get an article into the regular space, its subject has to be notable. What that means? See the ruleset: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability_(software) and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Software_notability
To be honest, I currently can’t imagine what might go wrong.
Nevertheless, here are some steps which might get more insight. Each step is a separate attempt, you can try one after another:
Using your browser, remove all cookies for that domain. Recently an issue with garbage in an old cookie was discovered (and fixed).
Try with a very simple password, like
1234567890. It might be an UTF-8 issue or something.
Try changing encryption algorithm in Backoffice -> Advanced Parameters -> Performance -> Ciphering. Default is Rijndael. Safest one is PHP Encryption library, Blowfish is for compatibility (I think).
Uninstall all modules not coming with thirty bees. Then look into
/overrides and remove all files ending with
.php, but not named
index.php. Overrides are one of the most often seen causes for weird behavior. If you can log in then without the hack, add them back one by one; this will restore overrides; exercise logging out and in each time to find the nasty one.
I see all the issues people have on here with payments and emails and those sort of problems would kill my stores, it’s just too big a risk to take.
I wonder whether the distinction is that these issues get reported here while they exist unreported in PS.
thirty bees’ track record of fixing issues in a timely fashion is pretty good, IMHO. Regularly, only a couple of hard to diagnose bugs survive more than a few days. PS’ bug tracker is full of issues unresolved for years, so people might have simply given up on discussing them.
When you are on the edit page of your combined rule you need to add the states one at a time. That is click the “add new rule” button, add the state, save, then repeat for however many states you have.
This actually sounds like something which should go into the thirty bees distribution. Could you make a list of which taxes are required?
TB needs a large user base that is willing to contribute by contributing code, bug fixing AS WELL AS money in some sort of way.
I’d exchange this ‘as well’ with an ‘or’. The traditional open source model worked with many people contributing, contributing with the community in mind, and that worked well. It still works in a couple of projects, like e.g. Linux or Git.
With many code contributions coming in, maintainers just have to sort all the solution, review and apply them. Much less work, code contributions certainly have as much value as money, perhaps even more.
