In X-Cart 5.4.x and earlier, X-Cart App Store is an environment separated from the store that facilitates the software core and add-ons maintenance. It ensures overall store security and stability, especially when applying updates. Provided the software updates 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 application.
To access the App Store, click on the My Add-ons link in the menu of your store Admin area.
You will see a different environment where you can install new and manage existing add-ons and apply minor and major software upgrades. 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 opens in a new one.
The main menu of the X-Cart App Store consists of five sections:
App Store: This section is a room for the 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 the possibility of installing them.
Updates (not available in Trials): 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.
