Installation

  • Step-1
    Before starting installation take a backup of following files in your store
    • Admin/menu.sitemap
    • Admin/breadcrumbs.sitemap
    • Admin/Products/ProductMenu.ascx
    • Admin/Products/ProductMenu.ascx.cs

  • Step-2
    Copy all files from Website folder to your store where AbleCommerce is installed. Copy all files to the corresponding directories in your store. For example copy everything from Website/ConLib/ folder to ConLib folder of your store and so on.
    Note : If your 'scriplets' folder is inside 'App_Theme\Current_Theme\' folder then follow these instructions
  • Step-3
    If you previously customized Admin/menu.sitemap and Admin/breadcrumbs.sitemap files you will have to manually update these files. Otherwise you can simply replace these files with the files provided in the ProductTags installation. To manually update these files follow these steps

    Here is the code that you will have to add to menu.sitemap file. You can add this code anywhere in the main <siteMap> node.

    <siteMapNode title="Add-Ons" LookId="TopItemLook" roles="*">
        <siteMapNode title="Product Tags" url="~/Admin/ProductTags/Default.aspx" />
     </siteMapNode>


    If a node named 'Add-Ons' already exists you should just add the sub nodes code as follows

    <siteMapNode title="Product Tags" url="~/Admin/ProductTags/Default.aspx" />


    Here is the code that you will have to add to breadcrumbs.sitemap file. You can add this code anywhere in the main <siteMap> node

    <siteMapNode title="Add-Ons ">
        <siteMapNode url="~/Admin/ProductTags/Default.aspx" title="Product Tags">
        <siteMapNode url="~/Admin/ProductTags/AssignedProducts.aspx" title="Assigned Products" />
    </siteMapNode>


    If a node named 'Add-Ons' already exists you should just add the sub nodes code as follows

        <siteMapNode url="~/Admin/ProductTags/Default.aspx" title="Product Tags">
        <siteMapNode url="~/Admin/ProductTags/AssignedProducts.aspx" title="Assigned Products" />


    Similarly if you have also customized Admin/Prodcuts/ProductMenu.ascx and Admin/Prodcuts/ProductMenu.ascx.cs files then you will need to merge changes. Please read ReadMe.pdf file available in download package for more information.
  • Step-4

    Run the SQL scripts on your database from InstallScripts/DB/ folder. As a precaution always take a backup of your database before running SQL scripts.
