    I think you may get passed back to gary's last reply. Whilst its gary that is doing the hard work, it the store owners and developers who have supported him over the years with his 28 days of code modules and the Phoenix supporters. Without either of them oscommerce would not be here today. If it had been left to those that want something for nothing and are not happy with that so they want more, then there would be no oscommerce.

    Documentation Initiative

    'Nothing ventured, nothing gained' --- In order to achieve, you need to act and take risks. I think we can all agree that the existing documentation is a bit dated. A lot has changed since it was written and it is in bad need of an update. Doing so will no doubt require a ton of work but if we crowd source it, I'm sure we can come up with something useful for the entire community. If you want to help out and give something back this is your chance. It's an opportunity for everyone to get involved. I think a good place to start would be to document what each of the menu options, on the admin side, does. As a start and example, here is what Fredi Rubinshtein and I came up with. Navigation Bar and the NavBar Modules If you agree that something along this line in needed and would like to help out just pick a menu item and post here which item you've decided to tackle. We don't want to duplicate the effort. I'll try to keep track of who is doing what and create a bit of an index. For those tackling a menu item please try to follow the example and provide a brief explanation, with screen shots of the steps involved and what they do. It would be nice if we ended up with a document that looked as if it was part of a single effort. Let's do this. Dan

    I provide a fairly regular, small updates; With actual step by step instructions on exactly what to do to perform the update; upload X uninstall Y delete Z I also provide a zip file of just the changes. I also link to diff (comparison) files. I also provide direct SQL as and when needed. With a large update, say once a year...you'd get none of that. This way...you have a choice; You can perform the small updates as they come out, or you can ignore them and just do a large update when that comes out. It makes no sense, to me, that anyone would be upset by having more choice.

    @Demitry You'll find additional information about it in the Phoenix club...sign up there if you haven't already and you'll find a thread describing what it does and an explanation of how it works. Basically Gary has split the product information pages up into modules that you can control the placement of from the admin side....in addition to the normal sort order you can select whether something is placed at the top, left, right, perhaps center and bottom of the page. You can also control the width the item occupies. It in effect gives you total control over the placement of items on the product information page. It's a must have and should give you a good idea of how to achieve what you want. You'll need to become a supporter to get the actual code but you can at least have a look to see if it is the sort of thing you're trying to achieve. Supporting Phoenix is something everyone using osC, in it's various forms, should do. If it's not in a shop owners budget it needs to be. Dan

    Most users I think do not wish to become a slave to a constant upgrade merry go round. As before most will just pick a point in time and install it, make the mods they need to make a usable working live shop and stick with it. It's wonderfull news that supporters are getting aditional code and early access to new versons. I'm sure they are very happy with this. However I don't see the point of you constantly posting this out side the closed club! It's of no use to anyone who is not part of the closed club. If they are part of the club then they will already know about it. osC forum has never been a place for hard selling! I'm sure people can make desisions without it beeing constantly pushed into their faces. This second hand cars sales (chugging) approach is not a nice look for osC 😊 but if that's the route chosen then so be it.

    @puggybelle Hi Andrea, Phoenix is a fully-functional product based on a code base that has evolved over many many years. I am using it (as others are) for my live shop. Point releases are optional and you can wait for more significant releases instead (i.e. 1.3.0) but I would always recommend keeping your shop software up to date. It us up to you when you update. I reckon I am forced to install updates to Windows / MacOS /iOS and other software on my mac, work pc and iphone almost every week. If you sometimes hit the equivalent of the ‘Snooze’ button you can install later but at your own risk of missing out on improved features and addressing security risks. Properly maintained software gets maintained, and we are fortunate to count on @burt to not just do that, whilst improving the code base. The number of point releases should be seen as being directly proportionate to the level of support Phoenix is getting (at no charge to shopowners). This should give your greater comfort, not cause for concern. I wouldn’t want to invest in a shop whose software gets touched only once a year or less frequently

    Before anyone starts I am fully aware of the PI modules available to some supporters, but some may not be supporters and may want a different layout to their product_info.php pages. For ease the PI modules should be obtained by becoming a supporter of Phoenix by paying either monthly or annually. I spent a while trying to change the look of my product pages in Phoenix but could not get the effect that I had in Edge. This is down to a change in BS4 compared to the older BS3. In BS3 it was easy to place modules next to each other in the product info pages just by using the sort order and content widths, but that functionality was removed with BS4. What this mod does is to replace the content block of code found in product_info.php from one to four blocks. One full width across the top, two in the centre side by side and one full width across the bottom of the page. Different widths of the centre two blocks can be altered in the product_info.php page code. It does change the code in the core product_info.php page and there is a need to create some new folders in the product info modules and languages folders. Once done any new module created for the standard product info page can be used with no changes. To fill the full width of the two centre blocks you should use a content width of 12. New blocks can easily be added to create greater page variation by adding similar blocks to those now found in the product_info.php file, and creating the new folders needed. Existing new blocks can also be moved around the page by changing product_info.php. Totally stand alone with one core code change to product_info.php. Has been tested on Phoenix 1.0.2.5 only but may work on other versions. Will not work on pre Phoenix code. Some of the modules in the images may not be available to non supporters.

    @vanzantz those two exploit reports are from the same bloke and they are not verified. I think they are wrong, he doesn't understand what a boolean-based sql injection attack is or for that matter how to test for a sql injection vulnerability of any kind. FWIW I am confident your tool is reporting a false positive and the code is perfectly safe. I can find no report anywhere that integer casting is not proof against injection. You always end up with an integer, so you can never get anything but found or not found for a match to the review_id and you can't add anything to the sql statement. Of course it's possible he's just a better hacker than I am a coder 😉

    I believe it is intentional to ensure customers spear ahead to checkout and not to be distracted by other things. 😀

    Ultimate Seo Urls 5 Pro

    @peterpil19, I tested my updated version from the 2018 EDGE shop on Phoenix 1.0.2.5. It works error free (error reporting set to ALL) The last uploaded package R2.09 (october 2018): throws errors. I believe my version is based on Release 2.08 Some update for the href lang tags of the latest version have been added, all seems to work correct. But I didn't do a very exhausted testing. Here the package including the modified files for Phoenix 1.0.2.5: Ultimate_SEO_URLs_5_Phoenix_beta.zip Here the link to the GitHub repository of the complete shop: https://github.com/raiwa/Responsive-osCommerce/tree/Ultimate-Seo-URLs-5 The instructions are not updated, just upload the "drop on top" and "compare_files" modified files. If you have a test shop and would like to give it a try and others too. The href lang tags need a multilanguage store with at least 2 languages. I'll try to contact the author to see if he would like to upload this as an update. I really have no time to give support for this.

    If you join the club and look through that thread someone might have commented about using it on EDGE...I'm just not sure. You could always ask there as well. Phoenix is just an improved version of EDGE so my guess is that it would work or could be made to do so fairly easily. Dan

    So you want to go to https://www.attias.ch/angebot.html and have it look like https://www.attias.ch/ishop/conditions.php (with different text of course)? If you're OK with changing the name to angebot.php, you could just make copies of the conditions page files. angebot.php from conditions.php includes/languages/german/angebot.php from includes/languages/german/conditions.php In the new file, change require('includes/languages/' . $language . '/conditions.php'); $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link('conditions.php')); to require('includes/languages/' . $language . '/angebot.php'); $breadcrumb->add(NAVBAR_TITLE, tep_href_link('angebot.php')); and in the language file, change define('NAVBAR_TITLE', 'Conditions of Use'); define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Conditions of Use'); define('TEXT_INFORMATION', 'Put here your Conditions of Use information.'); to reflect what you want to show, e.g. define('NAVBAR_TITLE', 'Unser Angebot'); define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Unser Angebot'); define('TEXT_INFORMATION', <<<'EOTEXT' <h2>Briefmarken</h2> <p>Schweiz ab 1850 Einzelmarken/Sätze ab 40 % SBK</p> <p>Rayon, Strubel, Sitzende Helvetia, Stehende Helvetia, Ziffermarken, Tellknaben und Brustbild, Freimarken, Werbemarken, Pro Juventute, Pro Patria, Blocks, Zuschlagsausgaben, Automaten-Marken, Rollenmarken, Porto Marken, Zusammenhängende, Zwischenstege, Kehrdrucke, Dienstmarken, Stempel Neuheiten, Schweizer Neuheiten, Schweizer Spezialitäten, Jahreszusammenstellungen, Abarten, Postfrisch , Gestempelt, FDC's, Vollstempel, Ersttag Vollstempel, Frankaturware etc...

There are also contributions like Page Editor , but it doesn't look like that's been updated for Phoenix. If you have budget, you could pay someone to do that. Either post in the Commercial Support Inquiries forum or PM @burt to see if he has something like that for Phoenix Supporters (annual fee required). If it's important that the name end in .html, then you could configure Apache's mod_rewrite to do that.

    Cost and Gross Margin in Admin Thank you for this add-on. It is very useful. I combine this add-on and the little mod submitted by YePix, and now I get the following info displayed. Now, whenever I enter a value in any of the 3 boxes, the margin will update automatically. A big thank to you. I am willing to share the code with you if you require, though I believe you are able to do the same yourself. Cheers!

    What a load of old tosh. As this is someones first post I can only assume that they have been put up to it by someone. I can only guess who as its been a buzz for that one person to be negative and cause trouble where they can. A person that likes things for free and does little to give back. I hope those mentioned take little notice of the negative comments from someone who clearly does not know what they are talking about. Without the work put in by all those listed as expert programmers osc would not be what it is today. Some of those named have moved on and good luck to them in what they do but without then we would all be worse off. May be those that instigated this post would like to give the same time to the project as others have in the past, then we can all see where we are in the future.

    It seemed for a number of years that the future of osCommerce was in jeopardy as new development was moving at a slow pace. However thanks to osCommerce users and community members it seems that an enthusiastic programmer community is now contributing to updating the program at a rapid rate. Three cheers! To valquiria23 for being an amazing encourager, and I wish you the very best. It seems that there are now 43 Phoenix-compatible add-on’s in the Apps Marketplace Showcase that has been submitted by incredibly gifted souls such as JcMagpie, raiwa, peterpil19 and others, so “Thank You All For Your Hard Work, Dedication, And Talent.” One can only imagine what unique feature add-ons will be coming shortly from other expert programmers such as Harald Ponce de Leon, Jan Zonjee, G Burton, Gergely Tóth, Daniel Brinkmann, John Doswell, Stefan Kanitz, Ingo Malchow, Henri Schmidhuber, Dan Cole, Fred, Jack, Jim Keebaugh, Lambros, Malcolm, and Phil.

    Lee, I believe that you’re referring to the same Product Information System that Dan mentioned. I’m currently in the dark when it comes to that particular topic. However, I completely support any and all initiatives that would make this software easier to customize …and especially, for the non-technical user.
