X-Cart App Store is an environment separated from the store that allows maintaining the software core and add-ons. It ensures overall store security and stability, especially when applying updates. Provided the upgrades of the software core and the add-ons management run separately from the rest of the store, an administrator reveals any malfunctions of a store Admin area and a storefront and rolls them back first thing after applying the updates.
To access the App Store, click on the My Add-ons link in the menu of your store Admin area.
This opens a special environment out of the Admin area where it is possible to install new and manage existing add-ons, as well as apply minor and major software upgrades (applies to X-Cart Enterprise only). By default, X-Cart App Stores opens in the same tab.
To return to the Admin area or open the storefront, use the corresponding links at the top of the page. The Admin area opens in the same tab, while the storefront - in a new one.
The main menu of X-Cart App Store consists of five sections:
App Store: This section is a room for X-Cart site App Store where you can find and buy new add-ons for your store.
Theme Store: This section displays all templates available in the X-Cart App Store
My Apps (opens by default by a click from the Admin area): This section displays all add-ons installed in your store, both enabled and disabled, including any custom add-ons ordered with X-Cart WebDev.
Purchases: This section contains a list of purchased add-ons with a possibility to install them.
Updates (available in X-Cart Enterprise only): This section displays the updates available for the software core and add-ons.
The search bar allows finding a necessary add-on through all sections. Some of the add-ons require exact matching, so if no results display check for any typos or try to re-phrase the request.
