Dashboard not showing on latest release.

Dec 14, 2009 at 10:44 PM

I am new to this module, but I like it, if I can only figure out why the Dashboard doesn't show. I did run across some info that said I needed to update some regex settings, but I can't find exactly where I need to do that. Do I need to add a rule in the DNN host settings area and if so what is it, if anyone knows? I am using DNN 4.09.03 and the latest stable release of the store and so far that seems to be the only issue. I am hoping it is easy to style and from looking at the demo store it has real potential. Any help is much appreciated.

Hi Beth,

That's normal at the moment, the dashboard has been put there with the idea of making a summary report in a future release.  At the moment it's just blank.

Thanks, I was worried something was amiss. Reports would be a good idea too. I think zen cart, if I remember correctly, has at-a-glance charts but it has been a while since I used it.

Yep the Zen Cart dashboard is a good model for this and if anyone has the right SQL skills and some time spare, please get in touch... we'd love to get a few reports happening there.

Some handy reports would be:

New orders and orders in various states, new customers, most/least active customers, products, products archived, on special, featured, newest/oldest products, page views, visitors, most popular products viewed/sold, least popular products viewed/sold, coupons active/used/not used... and with most items linked thruogh to their relevant data.
