  • Class not found - The plugin file for Commerce is either missing, or there is more than one located in the Plugins folder (C:\Program Files\Fishbowl\plugins). To obtain the plugin file, either reinstall the plugin from the Small.Plugin.png Plugin module, or copy/paste the plugin file itself from the server computer (same file path mentioned above).
  • Unable to create orders due to unlinked items - On the Orders page of the Small.Commerce.png Commerce module, click the red Unlinked status on the right of your order to manually link items per-order. Alternatively, open the Channels page of the Small.Commerce.png Commerce module, then click the red number in the Unlinked column. Use the red icon on the left to manually link products from the channel into Fishbowl.
  • Stuck scheduled task - Restarting the Fishbowl Server will usually resolve this. If not, trying inactivating the task within the Small.Schedule.png Schedule module by highlighting it, then clicking the Edit Icon Button.png Edit button on the right and unchecking the Active box. Occasionally you may need to shut down the Fishbowl Server, open the task manager (ctrl + shift + esc) and end the Java Platform SE Binary task, and then restart the Fishbowl Server.
