Hi there! I'm also new to the portal and am super excited to have it on the web. So far, I absolutely love it. One quick thing, though: all of my items say that I've sold 0 items, even though I've been selling pretty steadily. Is this just because I can't copy and paste my sales history? Does syncing the shop front just update the quantities without updating the amount sold?

Thanks!

You're welcome!

Right now, the only way to update it is via sales history. There's been a few requests to implement a method that bypasses sales history so it's in the works.

A possible way i see it is to allow the user to restock as normal. Sync at that point. And when it comes to calculating sales, the user is required to first run another sync of the shop front with a checkbox that directs Portal to process sales history as instead of the normal process of updating instock values.

This process will work unless the user has restocked some items back or changed prices without the initial "sales history" sync. That way, I can use the differences in the shop stock and what's listed in portal to generate sales history

I haven't yet gotten the chance to import my portal, but I'm looking forward to it. The way you mentioned the sales history, though, it sounds like there isn't emulate sales anymore. Is emulate sales still an option in the new portal? (I suppose that I'll find out when I import and get started, but I'd like to know.)

By the way, thanks for all the time and money you put into this. It's really a fantastically helpful program, even for someone like me who runs a shop on a much smaller scale than many of the mallers here.

It is currently not an option yet. But it will eventually be implemented as described above unless someone has a better idea.
The emulate sales button that is used in the portal didn't really take off as far as i know so i probably wont port that directly into X2.

My first priority was to get the core to an usable state and then add on new features. It took longer than expected since I had to look into potential security exploits and performance issues since when it's all done, the item database table will easily grow to over a million rows. (the counter service is currently sitting at just over 500k rows) and that's just the counter.

Luckily i figured it by setting up our own custom cache and that has made the load so much lighter.

This MySQL server has been running for 7 days, 4 hours, 49 minutes and 30 seconds. It started up on Aug 20, 2012 at 12:13 PM.
Query statistics: Since its startup, 25,338,168 queries have been sent to the server.

heh.

Minor adjustments: When on a X2 page, the left sidebar is invisible so you can position the neo window and X2 a bit more easily.

I'm getting an error message of : ErrorYou must have a valid active profile before you can access this page. Please visit management.

This is on my item DB page, Sales history page, and sync front page. I have not started to put my items in. I just deleted my edibles profile and those were the only items in my database.

Do you have a solution?
