  1. No matter what I do I cannot get the red “x” under dashboard store upgrade to go away after entering my user name and API. Gold Cart says activated under plugins but at dashboard store upgrade Gold Cart continues to say “The gold cart is currently deactivated.”

  2. Just wanted to say thanks for this post. It’s hard to believe, but nowhere in GetShopped’s documentation does it have a clear, easy to follow upgrade guide like this one. Thanks again, you’ve saved the day 🙂
