Coupons are items, that shop administrators can create and provide to customers (for some reasons). Using this item, the customer receives discount for the current order. Cuponst are NOT assigned to products or the cart. They can be used on any cart that matches the requirements, the coupon has. Consider them as extra item, added to the shopping cart that reduces the total price.


To use the coupons in Your shop, You have to do follow these two steps:


  1.  Add the coupon macro on the cart page of the shop;

  1.  Define the coupons that will be used in the shop online administration


Information about the fields in the coupon settings page:

ID - something like a label or name. You define the coupon and this is what users fill out when they have it. 
Order Minimum - The minimum amount the order has to be. If order amount is below this number, coupon cannot be used.
Order Limit - How many times you can use this coupon (0 means no limit)
Order Count - How many times coupon is used. It can be edited (if problem occurs or something else). 

(Note: Order count field may not be there)
Valid From - To - (the start/end the coupon can be used).

Create forum-like blog

Quick tutorial about how to make your EZG blog into a pretty good forum.



Few notices


  • Although it's not clear at the beginning of the video, every time new View is added. 
  • My layouts were in other language at first, so in the video you will notice few text changes, but in the uploaded files all should be English-labeled.
  • If you add category and subcategories, and then add posts to subcategories only, it won't let you click the main category on the front page. You must have at least one post in the main category too.
  • The "write psot +" button allows you to write to a different category, but it will pre-select the current one automatically.
  • The styles and the layour are very basic and definitely not for production. I highly recommend altering all the views and the frontpage to something that will fit your site.
  • In the fron page template css (vertical TEMPLATE button -> bottom (css) tab) there is a bit of a code that handles the front-page categories listing. Use/alter/remove this to make your categories list looks appropriate.


I used presets here, but you can instead use these: Forum modules archive

Unzip the archive into a new folder. There are 4 modules inside the archive:

  • frontpage
  • post
  • cat(egory)
  • search

Each of the modules has 3 files. For the impot you need the "rfv" files.

Just right-click -> Extra -> Import and select the proper file.

  • open Macros Field panel and drag-and-drop the macros you need


Example (Notice : you can also load example layout via right-click --> load page template -> search template)



%SEARCH_OBJECT(%counter% %title%

% category%




%HEADER% will parse --> Results: searchstring

%NAVIGATION% will parse --> 1 2 3                    1 of 18 pages navigation

%counter% --> number of page results

%title% --> page title of result
