Remove obsolete html. replace images with icons. Re-positioning of several buttons, search-fields and drop-downs. perhaps this list will go be extended Have Fun!

    No doubt! Admin is very important. Reporting, machine learning, marketing like email campaign, integration with Sendgrid/MailChimp and etc. That stuffs are important for conversions. How many of you actually use the products_view data? And how many of you know products_view indiscriminately tracks robot clicks (at least the last time I checked it) too? Just imagine if the "admin" would collect all the clicks and etc of a user session and gaining insight on visitor habits...it's gonna be in admin.

    I am not familiar with the addon you mention but my Category Images addon may already do that.

    I just want to mention,... We bought a code package that we wanted and needed. And additionally that money was helping a person to do what would take months or years to be done within few days/weeks. It's like you buy something online and at the end of the checkout process it says "we will donate 5% of your purchased amount to the cancer research institute" so you got your item and help a good cause. I don't see the big fuss about asking people to purchase code or an item and additional with that they would help move something forward. It's not like we gave money and didn't get anything for it in return. We bought a lot good code for it AND got osC moved forward. This should actually show that some few people are actually willing to pay for good code and not just get everything for free. That is why we always said it is vital for osC to have a market place where devs can sell code/apps so that you osC devs have a source of income and motivation to continue as fast as possible. I never saw anyone getting paid only to move osC forward. That is clearly a missunderstanding.

    Speeding up your website load times.

    Just for my satisfaction, I removed the call to FontAwesome. I then tested the page again; Pingdom: https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/bFNGAJ/http://template.me.uk/frozen2bs4/specials.php Requests down from 14 to 13 Loaded time reduces from 0.674s to 0.582s GT Metrix: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/template.me.uk/HDTZvPTi Pagespeed stays at A 100 Y Slow moves from A 98 to A 99 Loaded Time reduces from 2.0s to 1.5s Page Size down from 396kb to 119kb Requests down from 15 to 14 Conclusion Shave milliseconds off the page load time. Worth doing? Maybe for some shopowners, but not for core.

    I was testing the differences between the js and svg and css versions. Don't know why I left it on js..... good spot guys! Changing to the .css version: Pingdom https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/djjgqq/http://template.me.uk/frozen2bs4/specials.php Reduces load time to 0.488s GT Metrix https://gtmetrix.com/reports/template.me.uk/xZZMH1i8 Reduces load time to 1.0s That is blazing fast!

    Yes, it's true, I do not understand anything in programming, but it's my personal wish that we all join in moving forward this project and here is where I'm making my effort to unite everyone, trying to forget the past and think about the future. I will respect your wish and I will never mention you again, but I still think in a positive way trying to help unite people. peace and love Valqui

    Not entirely true, it can still be merged, but may be with a little more work... From Ben Parker: "with power also comes great responsibility..." It's time for unity...I doubt there'll be much income generating possibility until a more sounded user base.

    From my side, assuming that you are directing this at me, whatever people think they see and know; there are no differences. wHiTeHaT wants to do his project, so he should do it. I suspect many shopowners shall be very glad to finally see a bootstrapped admin.

    @burt Cheers Gary. I contacted the customers, explained what I needed to do as the items were still in their baskets, and completed the sale using a COD payment method. Luckily they both understood. I have the Master Password addon installed which made this so much easier. I also suspect it was a PayPal blip as it had not happened before, and has not happened again since. I certainly knew I had not altered anything as suggested by one idiot. Its just annoying when it does happen as there is no easy way to rectify what should be something simple. May be an idea for an addon for next years 28 days if that happens..

    Faviconit Header_tag addon. For Frozen A simple header_tag that installs the standard faviconit links. Just copy the files over as provided and install and turn on. Go to the “JcMJcMfavicon” folder and replace the files with your own icon files which you generate from http://faviconit.com/en That’ it enjoy.

    Speeding up your website load times.

    Now I am always skeptical when people tell me they have a new way to speed up my website! However it can some times be true and help. So here is one simple way to do this using your .htaccess file. Its explained In depth in this article. https://varvy.com/pagespeed/cache-control.html First lets bench mark your site as it is so we have something to compare the changes against. Use this link to do this. https://tools.pingdom.com/ Once you have a load time make a note. Now open your .htaccess file and add the following code. # One month for most static assets <filesMatch ".(css|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|js|ico)$"> Header set Cache-Control "max-age=2628000, public" </filesMatch> This is basically telling the browser of any one coming to your site to keep stuff in the cache. The article goes into more depth about this and how it works. Now save and close your .htaccess file, that's it. Now press f5 key to clear your browser cache, or go to settings and clear it. Now go back to https://tools.pingdom.com and run the speed load test again. Has it made any improvement? If yes then your all good and enjoy the faster loading of your site. If not then never mind just remove the code from your .htaccess file. I have seen small improvements on every site I have tested. If you alrady have this set in your .htaccess file then you dont need to do this.

    check if the attached module works for you. just place all your generated faviconit files (images, xml etc) into the shops root. i took the standard code from faviconit.com and placed it into the header_tags module. so if you have no advanced faviconit.com options it should work. ht_favicon-module.zip

    Is there any reason for using the all.js? I replaced it with all.css locally and it looks like it working faster! <link rel="stylesheet" href="/ext/fontawesome-free-5.1.1-web/css/all.css"> This cdn also looks to work smother than the v5.0.6/js/all.js .......cdn <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.0.6/css/all.css">

    Day 17 - Sale Sticker A quick and easy way to make your customers aware that a product is on Special... Core Code Changes NONE - if on up-to-date Edge, otherwise Yes. Admin Side Notice that you can easily change the Sticker Colour. The Sticker Text "sale!" is in the language file, again easily changeable. Shop Side In the Index Page ^ In the Category Page ^ In the Product Page ^ In the Specials page ^ and elsewhere (eg search results), but you get the idea. Summary I've always found it a bit strange that osCommerce software never really made anything of a product on special offer. A decade ago I made a module that did this same thing (add in a sticker) differently, and even just last year an update of that to simplify it. Now this new module is the most simple of all, just a HT module to upload and turn on, assuming on up-to-date Edge!
