    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.

    Bootstrap 4 in 2.3.4.1

    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.

    Addon Feedback

    This is a great idea. Feed back should address funtionality, compatibility, etc. And not include personal attacks, snide remarks and so on. Feedback that goes personal should be removed. No drama please, I get that enough in today's politics.

    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!

    Addon Feedback

    Agreed. I've (and even my family!) has been the target of personal abuse from members of this forum and it sucks. So yes, personal attacks and snide remarks would not be welcomed - from the feedback giver. If the OP then resorts to personal attacks and snide remarks, it's another warning sign not to use that addon. And I do consider this as a snide remark: "if you think you can do better, do it" but I maybe in the minority of thinking that?

    Bootstrap 4 in 2.3.4.1

    Main class chnages between BS3 and BS4 😊 Plenty of people have already applied BS4 to osC. Main question is if you have already built your site and its up and running with the add-on's working fine, do you really want to go through all that again just for BS4? But if you are just starting out and don't need any add-ons then why not you might as well.

    Sorry but that is not a valid reason. I would never choose a cart system because their forum software is up to date. I rather have an old(er) forum software but the latest and greatest osC system regularly updated and taking care of. Yes he indeed did but once again nothing happened. Not sure what his time frame or deadline is since he does not communicate it. Regular updates to the project. Showing up in the forum from time to time, in short(er) intervals. As Ambassador besides getting a larger message inbox upgrade maybe a few more perks like editing your own posts even past 15min. The money should go into the development of the osC cart system. Meaning you pay the coders or team members for their work to keep them motivated. Could be also achieved with a better Market place where paid apps could be sold and osC could take a certain % from the sold apps. With that they could finance whatever they need and offer good, professional apps with support. I really don't want to sound like a broken record but the issues are all still there and nothing has changed. Maybe Harald got fed up with us after his last visit but what did he expect? Flowers and a pad on the shoulder for neglecting this project? We offered help and a temporary solution to keep osC somewhat alive, it has been denied. I don't care if I can now show 50 different smileys or only 10. Merging the forums should not be his priority and if there is a big picture behind all this then he should simply communicate it on a regular basis. Regarding donating money, I mean if someone feels that giving money as a sign of appreciation then sure go ahead. But if you expect to get something more because you become ambassador or the project development moves faster forward then you are mistaken. A simple "thank you" as Steve just posted will also suffice especially if it comes from someone that is daily here giving help and support in the forum to others for free.

    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.

    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.

    Content Modules Tabs

    This addon is a direct replacement for the content section in admin->Modules. My content section has too many modules to deal with so I wrote this to allow displaying them via tabs. There is a similar addon by piernas but it is much more detailed and, for me, doesn't make dealing with the many modules in my shop any easier. This compatible with all oscommerce shops that have a Content section in admin->Modules. A screenshot is included.

    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.

    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.
