Problem with Shopping Cart Discount FunctionAuthor: Nigel B.
I have an online health shop that has many product pages and I use the discount and coupon code function very often for my customers.
The problem is that now and again when I set product discounts, the Valid from and Expires on function causes the software to change every extention from .html to .php on every single page that the discounted product in on - and this is many pages. I cannot change the extention back to .html (because it is greyed out - see pictures) unless I delete the relevant discounted product(s).
I then have to delete the products in the shopping cart, save, change all the extentions on every page back to .html (as they are no longer greyed out), and re add the products.
This has happened before and is very annoying and frustration as I have to spend huge amounts of time correcting the mess.
The other problem it causes (if I don't spot it soon enough) is that it duplicates all of the affected pages. So I have duplicate pages with the same content - one with a .html extention and one with a .php extention. This is a NO NO in Google's eyes with duplicate content and bad for S.E.O. as I have put alot of work into this websites S.E.O.
I'm seriously hacked off with this Shopping Cart!
