In Topic: Faster login with bootstrap modal

27 April 2017 - 03:40

@ndiggity

 

The security issue has been discussed previously and best solution was to only use the login modal on a fully SSL'd site.

 

I like what you're trying to do here but you need to remember that there are a number of areas on the page that need to be updated after user login. The navbar which you have already addressed, but there is also the footer, customer's order history box needs to appear if enabled and if the shopping cart box is being used then that also needs to be updated. There could be more.

 

Having the pages load using ajax would be a cool thing, but the only time this is going to happen using your code is when no redirect is required. In my opinion, then what is the point of using ajax at all since there are still a number of areas of the page that need to be updated (as mentioned), even when there is no redirect.

 

The point of the login modal was to eliminate an extra page load (to the login page) when logging in, which has been achieved. Trying to eliminate another page load seems like a good idea but that won't work anyway if a redirect is required.

In Topic: After VAT MOSS now Australia is doing something similar.

This was always going to happen, and is just the begininig (as per the last paragraph of Steve's Tamebay link).

The Australian government has been speculating for quite a while now on how to recoup lost GST revenue from the increasing number of overseas transactions.

So you can expect to see these measures cover transactions for physical products as well, some time in the future.

Thanks, but I'm certain there are people here more worthy of MOTM.

In Topic: [Addon] Twitter Typeahead Autocomplete Search for osC 2.3.4 (BS and nonBS)

Sorry for late reply.

I remember reading somewhere in the forum that the admin setting "Use Search-Engine Safe URLs" was still in development and not the best option to use (I think this is still the case and not sure why it is still there, but I could be wrong). Preference is to leave that off and install another SEO URL's add-on from the add-ons page, such as this one http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/9544.

 

cheers

Have confirmed that "Typeahead Autocomplete" (latest bs version) works with the "Ultimate Seo Urls 5 for Responsive Oscommerce" add-on in the link provided above. The only issue is the SEO URLs add-on requires a number of core changes.

 

cheers

I found the problem. The setting "Use Search-Engine Safe URLs" was set to true in Configuration -> My Store. When I turned that to false it started working.

 

Is it possible to have search-engine safe urls and still have the add-on working?
