    Forum Changes

    Hi All.. The forum was down for maintenance today for backend work and to streamline the forum structure. Many of the support forums have been merged (eg, OSCOM v2.x support, installation, upgrades, tips and tricks, ..), and some have been vaulted (eg, OSCOM v3.x, development, ..). The encyclopedia sized forum rules have also been streamlined and now point to the policies on our main website. For a test run, the Clubs section is being shown more prominently on the front page of the forum, showing the last 3 active clubs. This may change again in the future where all discussions are held in Clubs to further streamline the forum structure, and to experiment with entirely new forum front page experiences. Announcements will soon be made regarding the following: v2.x Community Editions Apps Marketplace New Me Website OSCOM v3.x New channels for v3.x discussions will be added to the forum when the announcement is ready to be made. On a personal note, I apologize for my lack of presence in the forum - I have been focused entirely on coding. Many thanks to the moderator team keeping the community civilized. My resources now allow me to do both, so watch out 👀😃 and catch me in the Public Chat area again from this week on.

    I think it would be great to make a package (called frozen 2 or as you like) that has the new admin of @shetch and the Frozen version with its bug fixes so that new users can download them in one place. What the community lacks are periodic updates to show that the software is alive. I do not know if this is the best place to post it, but the work of @shetchis fantastic, it's the cooler in oscommerce for a long time and it would be great to integrate it into the Frozen package. What do you think? Best regards. Valqui

    php 7.2 - updating CE

    With a big thanks to @Heatherbell I have a day next week and a day the week after to commence work on; fixing php7.2 warnings and errors translating old x.x (some of which relates to php4!) php code to newer 7.x formatted code In the meantime, if anyone sees any more errors/warnings please reply to this thread stating what the error says and where you found it (eg an URL) or how you made the error appear (eg only happens when pressing edit on XYZ module) and so on. As much details as you can give would be very helpful.

    JcM Product info No stock buy button CE A simple add-on to let you display buy button on product info page. This button will change if stock is zero and prevent the product from being added to cart. Again totally standalone with no core code change. Simply copy all files into relevant sections and go to admin modules /content and install.

    modal info popup

    had a quick play myself, and got it to work by moving the java script part to the bottom of template bottom. would it be easier to make to convert it to a header tag module, unless you can get the java script code to go below the bootstrap java script? also is their any point in checking that it is being loaded on a https connection

    modal info popup

    I had a look at the add-on and it needed some fixes to get it to work on CE BS3, I assume you already made those as you say you have the admin side working. I too got the admin working and the output works fine as far as getin geting the info from admin, can even display it in a modal which is trigered by click. The problem is with bootstrap "show" function for modal. I can get it to work fine on a simple page but it fails to trigger when used in CE. I think this is an issue with the js script not beeing called at the right time or having duplicates calls on the site? Which ever it is it's this bit that is not working the rest is fine. I'll try and look into the "show" function a bit more when i have time.

    JcM Current Bestsellers Box V1.0 CE A simple add-on to let you display a Current Bestsellers Box on your site This allows you to set the number of days from which the best sellers are selected. If no sales made in that period nothing is displayed. So you could set it to show best seller in last week, month or year. Again totally stand-alone with no core code change. Simply copy all files into relevant sections and go to admin and install.

    Where to start for newbie

    It's probably useful to point out that something being "open source" does not always mean it is "free" (as in no money). That's a misconception that a lot of people struggle with. We all run businesses, we all know there is a cost. https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/releases => Frozen Install it and have a play with it.

    No Hooks in Bootstrap?

    I haven't followed this thread so I'm not sure if it is the hooks that bother you or that the CE version is not the official version. If it is the hooks, then they will still be in the next official version since Harald is the one that initially added them and it is very unlikely, probably impossible, that he would remove them from the next version. If it is that the community version isn't the official one, you should understand that whenever an official version is released, it will take quite a while before it is useful. Based on previously released official versions, it would be a good six months before it would be useable as a live shop. So even if an official version was released today, if may not be useable as a live shop before the next Christmas season. So waiting for an official version would hurt your site far more than switching to the CE version and that should be the most important factor to consider, in my opinion.. Just something to think about.

    Very good suggestion Valquiria . This will be the next step for real support of our favorite software osCommerce. I fully support this idea! It is time to defrost?

Mod as you like. Have only tested on CE BS3 but shoud work on 4 as well. running on test site https://justfastfood.com/ JcM index Popup V1.0.zip

    osCommerce website given refresh

    Just for a bit of fun I decided to install official osC and make it responsive! yes it will re-size to which ever device you use to look at it with. It took all of 10 miniutes to do. It was just to show that it is posiable and not as hard as people may think! No the test site is not perfect but then nither am I 😊 it was just a quick hack to show that it's not such a big deal. The profesionals are much better and doing this trust me. Also please dont confuse responsive and Bootstrap, yes Bootstrap is responsive but it's more that just media queries, it's a full framework. So take a look at the test site on your phone or tablet and go from landscape to portrait and you will see official osC in a basic responsive form. https://www.jcmagpie.co.uk/ Yes I know I have not sorted out the images! it's just to show that grid 960 can be made responsive.

    php 7.2 - updating CE

    I've a little bit of time in hand and it seems like this is the next necessary thing to solve, the use of php7.2. But I need your help to point out any problematic area so that attention can be given to them. To help...you'll need an installation of CE (any flavour that is Frozen or later) running on php 7.2 - with error reporting dialled right up. To set up error_reporting to show everything that is wrong: includes/application_top.php Find: error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_STRICT); Change to: ini_set('display_errors', 1); ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1); error_reporting(E_ALL); admin/includes/application_top.php Find: error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE); if (defined('E_DEPRECATED')) { error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED); } Change to: ini_set('display_errors', 1); ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1); error_reporting(E_ALL); Save both files. Obviously...you DO NOT want to do this on a live shop as it will show errors to your customers, so hopefully a few people have a test shop to play with... Now if you browse your test shop...all warning and errors will appear. Thank you in advance. Please copy/paste the following as a reply: URL: WARNING/ERROR:

    Bug fixed to make product description show properly. You can simply replace the template file, or uninstall and replace files and reinstall. Sorry was just poor editing on my part. Full Pakage has been uploaded to apps.
