Remove Order Messages from Bigcommerce

Finally figured out how to do this, here’s information;

STEP 1: Go into “Design” > choose “Edit HTML / CSS” then choose the template “account.html.” You can remove the following three codes from the HTML. Don’t worry, if you don’t like the way it looks you can always revert back to the default original HTML. (Remove ONLY these codes and NOTHING else).

%%Panel.SideAccountMenu%%

%%LNG_ViewMessages%%

%%LNG_ViewMessagesDescription%%

STEP 2: (optional) *IMPORTANT – If you really want to keep that “Manage Your Account” side panel (%%Panel.SideAccountMenu%%) but you just want to get rid of the other “View Messages” section inside of it, then simply open that panel in the same HTML / CSS editor. It is called “Panels/SideAccountMenu.html.” Then remove only the following two codes and nothing else. Remember, if you don’t like the changes you can always revert back to the default by clicking “revert to original.”

%%LNG_ViewMessages%%

%%GLOBAL_NumNewMessages%%

STEP 3 (VERY IMPORTANT): Customers who have previous open tickets will still see a link in their old emails where they can access the message center directly. You can remove the message system completely by editing: “account_inbox.html” and removing only this one single code:

%%Panel.AccountInbox%%

NOTE: This step disables the whole account inbox message system from the customer’s end. Steps 1 and 2 only hide the message system links from the site (but NOT from past emails). If you ONLY want to do step 3 you can, but then customers will still see the message center links and when they click these message center links NO message center will appear.

So, theoretically, you can just do step 3 but it may confuse customers without step 1 and 2 hiding the links. I suggest following all 3 steps!

I Can No Longer Eat Store Bought Pierogis

You won”t be able to either after trying this recipe. We”ve created the perfect pierogi that you can make with relative ease in your own kitchen. The ingredients are easy, and work is fun – even for kids to help out with and they don”t take very long to cook. Trust us, these are the best pierogi”s you”ve ever savored.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Red Potatoes
  • Pinch Salt
  • Fresh Ground Pepper
  • Some Butter
  • Some Milk
  • 4-6 Garlic Cloves
  • 4 Stalks Green Onion
  • 2 TSP Ground Cayenne Pepper
  • 6 Strips of Bacon
  • 1 Cup Ground Up Cheddar Cheese
  • Fresh Basil
  • Fresh Parsley
  • Spanish Onion for Cooking with pierogis
  • Wonton / Potsticker Wraps from any Grocery Store
  • Sour Cream for Dipping

Prep Time:

  • 2 Hours

Cook Time:

  • 30 Minutes to an Hour (slow cooking is best!)

Directions:

  1. Cook 6 strips of bacon until nice and crispy, set aside on paper towel.
  2. Boil Potatoes for approximately one hour to one and a half hours.
  3. Drain boiling water from around potatoes.
  4. Add some butter, milk, salt, pepper to potatoes and begin mashing the potatoes.
  5. Mash mash mash, make those mashed potatoes. You want them super creamy.
  6. Set your mashed potatoes aside to cool down a bit.
  7. Mash up bacon into small bacon bits (we put in a ziplock back and crumbled with our fingers)
  8. Cut up green onion, basil, parsley, garlic, and grate the cheese then add add all on-top of mashed potatoes
  9. Mix everything together in your mixing bowl so you have a crazy mashed potato concoction.
  10. Let the mixture sit on the counter for a bit to mingle the flavors and solidify a bit for easier stuffing.
  11. Put a large pan on the stove, and turn up to medium-high heat
  12. Add some vegetable oil and cut up Spanish onion to your large pan.
  13. Begin simmering onions while you make the pierogis.
  14. Add about a tablespoon of filling to your wonton/potsticker wrap and gently fold over and seal the edges. This part is a little tricky but after you do one or two you”ll know how much filling to use and how to close them properly. If they won”t close properly, you can use some flour and water as glue on the inside of them to hold them shut.
  15. Once all your pierogi”s are ready to be cooked, fill your heated pan with the oil and onion with as many pierogi”s as you can.
  16. Cook slowly until golden brown on both sides.
  17. Near the end, turn up the heat to add crispyness to both the onions and pierogies. We find the onion tastes best if a little blackened.
  18. Serve with Sour Cream and Parsley for dipping.
  19. Enjoy!
