Ubercart Settings Tips

After your initial Ubercart installation, we recommend you take the following steps:

  1. Setup a store administrator role (or roles if you want varying levels of access).
    • Browse to Administer > User management > Roles and create the role.
    • Click "edit permissions" in the row for the new role. Click the checkboxes for the permissions you want to grant to this role and click submit.
  2. To help yourself and store administrators navigate the site, turn on the Store Links block.
    • Browse to Administer > Site building > Blocks and select a location for the Store Links block. Save the changes.
    • (Store Links block does not display well in Internet Explorer! Watch out!)
    • Click the configure link for that block. Scroll to the "Role specific visibility settings" section and click the checkbox for the store administrator role. Save the changes.
    • (While you're in the blocks admin area, you can go ahead and setup your cart block along with the catalog block if you enabled the Catalog module.)
  3. Browse through the Configuration menus and adjust the settings to meet your needs.
  4. Adjust product node type settings.
    • Browse to Administer > Site building > Themes > Configure where you can uncheck the box to display post information on products.
    • Browse to Administer > Content management > Content types > Product where you can adjust the comment settings for products.
