    Hi All.. The forum software has just been updated to the latest software version, and there are heavy duty tasks still running in the background that will probably take until tomorrow to complete. This includes reindexing all topics and postings (searching will not work until this is complete), reindexing status updates and activities, recounting statistics, and merging the German forum postings into the new German Community club. The user accounts from the German forum have successfully been merged into this community. This is a start to adding international support to this forum using the Clubs feature of the forum software to separate foreign communities from the main English content. As the forum software update included changes to the user account integration with our main websites, logins and new signups were disabled during the downtime (preventing App Marketplace downloads, sorry) and are now fully functional again. Please post here any quirks you may experience regarding the forum software update or user account issues from our main websites. Thanks! PS, I'm fine. Thanks to those who contacted me in the past. Announcements will be published soon.

    28d 2019, let's move the Project forward...

    Thank You to the handful of good guys who felt able to take a chance on them getting some good modules and code without actually knowing what they'd get. You are stars. Each day in February I'll be adding in a new module/code. Hit the "FOLLOW" button to be notified whenever I reply to this post. Demo site is running Bootstrap v4, but ALL 28d offerings will have BOTH a BSv4 version AND a BSv3 version. If you are a very old version (eg Gold, or early somewhere in between Gold and Frozen), the BSv3 version is for you, but you'll get both in case you do ever update to the latest codebase. If you have general questions, or particular questions about each days offerings ... please post them here or PM me.

    Bootstrap 4 in

    Bootstrap 3 will be around for years - no point overthinking that, so forget it. The main "problem" will be upgrade php. Some people say php7.2 is working fine, others report it is not working fine. At the end of the 28d, dependant on support thereof, I hope to have gotten enough time in hand to get the following done and complete; make sure shop and admin are ready for 7.2 (at the very least, possibly 7.3 if I can swing it) -> no warnings and no errors product class -> rework relevant modules to use it But as with all things, one step at a time, and right now that step is trying to get some time in hand to actually do "stuff".

    Product Page Layout

    Totally do-able, it is exactly as @raiwa says. Gallery 10 6 Name 20 6 Model 30 3 Price 40 3 Attributes 50 6 Buy 60 3 Reviews 70 3 Description 80 6 You are constrained by the DEPTH of the Gallery, so place a minimum height on this using CSS which would be placed in user.css @media only screen and (min-width : 768px) { div.cm-pi-gallery { min-height: 1000px; } } Change the min-height on this to better reflect your needs. You will then also need to amend tpl_ files for product_info, at the very least; remove clearfix from reviews button tpl restyle price as it would look weird as a h* Prior to the extra tpl_ change for price, you would end up with something like: Of course, how this would look in XS...is debatable, and that is why you can micromanage the layout using those tpl_ files if you so wish. My system for these modules uses only the SM layer.... however, that micro-management is where things get really complicated really quickly and hence why I did not put that level of management into Core.

    28d04 - Qty Input This module displays a Quantity Input on the product_info page. Core Code Changes: NONE. System is 100% modular. If on Gold, you *might* need to update one file to bring it to a more modern standard. Demo: https://template.me.uk/28d2019/product_info.php?products_id=25 Look for the Qty Input next to the Buy Button... Interested: PM Me please as without shopowner support, osC is no more.

    Frozen to BSv4

    I don't expect this will be a publicly available thing; its a showcase of what the Responsive could (and should) have been had we got as far as Final. It will be available to some shopowners if they want it, but that will only be the handful of shopowners who are the diehard supporters of my efforts. Put simply; this is made to flatten my bsv4 learning curve.

    28d10 - Hooks... I have Two Hooks for you today... 1. Checkout Progress Steps... This Hook changes the checkout progress bar so that it looks like this: Core Code Changes: BS4: NONE. Just upload the New file to overwrite the existing Hook. Language file included so you can change the words as you like. BS3: Checkout pages to include Hook. 2. Carts Merged... There is a situation in osCommerce where the customer can potentially checkout with unwanted items. It goes like this, customer logs in and adds item(s) to their cart, then logs out. She comes back a while later and adds in another item, then clicks checkout. At this point, she is redirected to checkout_shipping.php and it is possible to not notice the older items in cart (until the checkout_confirmation page). This Hook solves that by redirecting back to shopping_cart (after login) and adding a warning message; Core Code Changes: BS4 & BS3: 1 line of code for new Hook file inclusion. Want them? Message me.

    28d03 - Discontinued Message This allows shopowner to add a "Discontinued" message to products. Core Code Changes: NONE. System is 100% modular. Demo: https://template.me.uk/28d2019/product_info.php?products_id=25 Look for the Big Red Message, it should be fairly self explanatory. Interested: PM Me...

    28d02 - Product Tab System This allows shopowner to add a TAB content module. Each Tab is then a Child module which displays relevant data... Included Child Modules: Gallery, Shipping, Conditions, Product URL More Child Modules to follow. Basically any data can be put into a Child Module, so let me know your ideas. Core Code Changes: NONE. System is 100% modular. Demo: https://template.me.uk/28d2019/product_info.php Look underneath the Buy Button for this: Interested: PM Me...

    28d01 - Social Links This is a Content Module and a few child modules which display your social links in a modal (popup). Core Code Changes: NONE, totally modular. The Child modules can easily be re-arranged using Sort Order etc. Demo: https://template.me.uk/28d2019/ Look at the Footer area for this: Interested: Please PM me to discuss how you can support the Responsive Project.

    Hello everyone. After 2 years of work I managed to finish (at last) the site that I made to a relative of mine, in production. I like to receive your reviews, opinions, criticisms and suggestions before I enable it to the public. The site is: www.ferreteriaideal.com.uy I would also like to thank all those who helped me in this process directly and indirectly: Harald Ponce de Leon - for creating oscommerce. @burt - for creating the Community Bootstrap Edition EDGE. @raiwa - for creating the EDGE version in Spanish and its great addons. Also for excellent support that he gives them. I need to mention @Jack_mcs, @Tsimi , @kymation , @auzStar and many others for their great addons and support. But the one who deserves special thanks is Zahid @JcMagpie for his help, willingness to help and the passion he has for oscommerce. I learned a lot from him, from his publications on the site and the advice he gave. It is important to mention its great addons that contributes to this community (which every time unfortunately is shrinking due to lack of leadership). Anyway, I thank all those who interacted with me in the good and bad times, because from everybody I learned, although I only keep the positive. Kisses and I hope you have an excellent weekend Valqui

    Feedback for raiwa

    If you buy an addon you are buying software without instalation service. Each addon package includes instructions for instalation. However you’ve got free support through 20 mails including one free customization and advices for problems unrelated with the purchased add-ons. You have never engaged me any job and didn’t pay for any request.

    BS4 admin

    Made a GitHub repository for converting the oscommerce's admin to bootstrap 4. based on @burt 's oscommerce-CE [Frozen] repository BS4 Admin (<- click to download) TODO: use direct library instead of CDN Finetune buttons. 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!

    Just a little light hearted fun for the festive season. 😊 JcM Festive Snowfall V1.0 CE BS4/3 A simple add-on to let you add some festive cheer to your website. Will give a falling snow shower all over the website. Can be configured in admin to set quantity, size, speed, color and shape of the snowfall. Again totally standalone with no core code change. Simply copy all files into relevant sections and go to admin modules /content and install. Has been tested on CE BS4 and CE BS3. Again can be seen running on the test sites. https://chilleddisplays.co.uk/ Enjoy.

    Decided to take a further look at what the competition are doing to make it easy to for customer. I’ve already looked at checkout so decided to look at the front end. How easy is it to sign up and make an account? Well the results were quite surprising. It looks as if osC is out of step with many of the market leaders. Put simply our first look for the customer is very off putting compared to most others. Lets just have a look. Shopify Magento WooCommerce OpenCart osCommerce I think anyone looking at these would see that our create account page is clearly out of step and could be seen as very off putting! Do we really need all that info up front! I think the competitors have clearly seen the need to make the first contact the customer has as low key as possible. Woocommerce have taken this a step further and removed the create account all together from the front page. You just shop and go to check out and then you are simply given a simple tick box if you want to make an account. I think it's clear from this that we have to update our create account process as it could be off putting to new customers. We could just do what Wooo do and get rid of it from index and just make it a simple selection option on the check out page. I think that combined with the ideas for streamlining the checkout could make osC a much better experience for customers.

    This is a difficult one, but let's think about it; I'm thinking the simplest way would be; Create new Product: "MASTER", this would have the bundle price, description etc New Page in admin which allows you to select a MASTER, then add SLAVE(s) to it. SLAVES are your usual products. This Master/Slave relationship would be contained in a new DB table. You could even hold quantity in this Table (eg this master needs 2 of this slave, 3 of this slave, and 1 each of these slaves) So far so Good. Shop Side (product_info), detect if the product is a MASTER If yes, display the SLAVES (like is done on a normal product that shows "also_purchased") Customer Adds to Cart the MASTER and checks out. At the end of the checkout ALL customers *should* end up on checkout_success A small module here to reduce stock of SLAVES based on that Master/Slave relationship table. Per our conversation, you know I've made (in the distant past) something similar which was abandoned as pretty much unworkable. That was back in 2010/2011 before we had much (any?) modularisation... and the problem was reducing stock when people went off to pay. Now we are a bit modular...I think it can be done; New Page in Admin for selecting which products are Master Same page (or maybe a different page) for attaching Slave(s) to Master(s) New Module Shop Side to display Slaves when customer is looking at a Master New Module for reducing Stock at checkout_success It *should* be doable with no Core Code Changes, if it is kept fairly simple.
