Global Configs


Global Configs can be accessed at Configuration → Advanced → GlobalConfig Parameters or Configuration → Store Maintenance on the 'Global Configs' tab.

These settings affect how ALL stores in the MultiStore install function. For information on settings that can vary by store, review AppConfig Parameters.

GlobalConfig Name Description
AllowAffiliateFiltering This setting determines whether Affiliates function on all stores or if they can be mapped per store. If this is set to TRUE, Affiliates can be mapped specifically to stores.
AllowCouponFiltering This setting determines whether Coupons/Promotions function on all stores or if they can be mapped per store. If this is set to TRUE, coupons/promotions can be mapped per store, and customers will receive an 'Invalid Coupon/Promotion' message if they try to use a coupon/promotion on a store it is not mapped to. See this page for Promotions (versions 9300+) and this page for Coupons in previous versions. Mapping information can be found here.
AllowCustomerDuplicateEMailAddresses This setting determines whether customers' email addresses must be unique, or can be re-used. Allowing duplicate email addresses can cause confusion between purchases, and make accounting more complicated as multiple customer records may have the same email. We almost always recommend that this be set to FALSE, unless 'AllowCustomerFiltering' (see below) is set to TRUE.
AllowCustomerFiltering If this is set to FALSE (recommended), a customer that registers on one of your MultiStore sites also becomes registered on all other stores in that instance. Their login, addresses, order history, etc will be shared across all of the stores. If set to TRUE, the customer must register independently on every store. Setting this to TRUE requires that 'AllowCustomerDuplicateEmailAddresses' be TRUE as well.
AllowEntityFiltering If this is set to TRUE, entities (categories, manufacturers, departments, etc) will only show up on the stores that they are mapped to. See this page for more details.
AllowGiftCardFiltering This setting determines whether Gift Cards function on all stores or if they can be mapped per store. If this is set to TRUE, Gift Cards can be mapped per store, and customers will receive an 'Invalid Gift Card' message if they try to use a Gift Card on a store it is not mapped to. See this page for more details.
AllowNewsFiltering If this is set to TRUE, News Articles will only show up on the stores that they are mapped to. See this page for more details.
AllowOrderOptionFiltering If this is set to TRUE, Order Options will only show up on the stores that they are mapped to. See this page for more details.
AllowProductFiltering If this is set to TRUE, Products will only show up on the stores that they are mapped to. See this page for more details.
AllowRatingFiltering If this is set to TRUE, customer product Ratings will only appear on the store they were created on, even if the product is mapped to multiple stores.
AllowShippingFiltering If this is set to TRUE, fixed Shipping Methods will only appear on the stores they are mapped to. If this is set to TRUE, make sure that every store has at least one shipping method mapped to it or customers will be unable to check out on stores without a mapped shipping method! NOTE that Real Time Shipping rates cannot be mapped per store!
AllowShoppingcartFiltering If this is set to FALSE, customers can add products from multiple stores to a single cart, and check out on any of those stores. Note that 'AllowCustomerFiltering' must also be set to FALSE for this to function.
AllowTemplateSwitchingByLocale If this setting is set to TRUE, the stores in this install will be able to switch to another skin when a customer chooses a locale.
AllowTopicFiltering If this is set to TRUE, Topics will only show up on the stores that they are mapped to. See this page for more details.
