    @Antonio Garcia and others. Its very easy to sit on these forums and criticize what others have done, and not actually support the code. You openly admit that you are using old defunct code, and that you haven't updated to the latest official version, let alone the BS community version. Its because of people like you, that some members of this forum are changing their outlook on the OScommerce project, and moving away. If you really need answers to your questions about the official version and the direction it is going, you should ask the man in charge. You will not get an answer, as many of us have been waiting for over 7 years for one. Before you wind up and annoy anyone else, think before posting on this and other forums. You will learn that your opinion does not matter to those that care about this project. If you want to help the Team, volunteer to the people in charge and help where help is needed, and a lot of help is needed. Failing that shut up and accept what you get if you get anything.

    btw: What can someone do, who can not code in php but is interessted in Oscommerce moving forward? If you want to be of use from a developer stance, you would need to run a seperate webserver etc and have been able to use github to at least test new code. but i think thats quite difficult for a non coder. So most people would only be able to help by buying modules/services and maybe be helpfull in the forum if possible. I am hanging around as much as possible on Oscommerce discord btw. trying to help if i can (people ask funny questions there.. ;) ) well, Oscommerce 2.3.4.1BS will be good for some years i guess. Look how long 2.2MS2 was running :) So, it's great to have that, now. i think it is up to us to build/share some modules around it (if you can), help people in the forums, help developers to make a living by buying their modules and services, to eventually attract more new users/shopowners and keep the flame alive. :)

    First to all I DON'T want to create a kind of war "coders - shopowners", ... you (from my point of view) are not 'staff' as the rest of Team group (I don't want that someone from Team group be offended for my angry coments) ... and I only try to give you my personal feelings. May be today I see al grey... sorry for that! I try to recapitulate the complains that I read in the forum from the past (mainly I agree with it): - osCom 3 0 => almost done, not complete. A lot of work by coders made with no reward to him. This code is dead from years... ... & no interest from shop-owners because they don't know how upgrade and don't know if it works well. So I see that there are 'code for fun' (good, of course!). The time tell that almost nobody use it (a better code, but...). It seems as someone made a spaceship without ladder... - osCom 2.4 => first attemp, later abandoned, latter again coding... but also people tell that's it's incomplete (burt ask for your 'products class', and another talk that attributes is not finished). Of course, NO compatibility with previous versions, no clear way to update. How many contributions are made for 2.4??? It seems that coders don't care because OR no interest for shop-owners (2.4 is good, the 'future', no?) OR simply don't have fun doing it. Again a beautifull castle where people outide can't enter into it. osCom 2.3.4BS => made with a lot of work / time / discussion made by some TEAM members involved (and a lot of good people, trying help) and then? This it's not in a prominent place where be easy be donwloaded. I can't add the famous 'big button' to the index.php of oscommerce.com. Only I can it put in my signature... As I said, people download a WRONG package, later problems and people like you (or some volunteers, thanks BrockleyJohn & others) need to remain a million of times that the 'official' was good some years ago but today is not the right version. Do you think that 'The staff' respect the work made by burt, you and a few more people (both of you from Team group)? Can you imagine the 'current' version of woocommerce only available in the signature of some users? Can you find (good/comprensible) documentation about 3.0, 2.4 or even 2.3 series here? Do you think that, if there are almos NO information how oscommerce works is because shop-owners don't need or may be because after 'complete' the code, "there is no need to create a documentation" that explain the changes? Even new coders need it. A place where see it whitout the obligation to be a kind of ninja searching for forums or criptic links in oscommerce... The problem is Halard? It seems that he left us Valentine's Day... With no promise about 'resurection' or return for the 'end of times'... He asked for "osCommerce Ambassador for life", a few tried to help (we 'like' oscommerce)... and then? No parties, no a single message telling that I earn a free holiday trip in Laponia, etc. I only want / hope he is well without problems. I only would like to ask Harald tell you or burt or the others, "I want let my empire to the best". If not, we will stand here (or left 'our house' for a lot of time) feelling a little confused. The problem is the Team group? Where I can find what is the coordination between team group? How many are active? Can you tell me when / how many times you meet? What was the last time? What is the matters that you agree? I know that some will be discret/secret but the rest of us are waiting for the next steep. I can see if ubuntu will do this or that, or wordpress will implement in next version X a page editor, or Magento will add in next update 1000 new php files to print a single 'Hello Word'. Where I can read something like that in oscommerce? Why not a clear roadmap? Are you agree with next Burt comment? I agree with it, but I feeel a litle disilusioned because this comment comes from the Team of this... Now, time to goto window and see the sunset...

    I imagine you need it INSIDE the drop-down menu, right? Right now I'm busy, I'm sorry, as soon as I can, I get to it.

    Something fast Edit catalog/includes/modules/boxes/bm_manufacturers.php Search lines 65, 66 and 67 $data = tep_draw_form('manufacturers', tep_href_link('index.php', '', $request_type, false), 'get') . tep_draw_pull_down_menu('manufacturers_id', $manufacturers_array, (isset($_GET['manufacturers_id']) ? $_GET['manufacturers_id'] : ''), 'onchange="this.form.submit();" size="' . MAX_MANUFACTURERS_LIST . '" style="width: 100%"') . tep_hide_session_id() . '</form>'; Add below $data .= '<a href="' . tep_href_link('allmanufacturers.php') . '">' . MODULE_BOXES_MANUFACTURER_BOX_ALLMANUFACTURERS . '</a>'; Add to language file catalog/includes/languages/english/modules/boxes/bm_manufacturers.php define('MODULE_BOXES_MANUFACTURER_BOX_ALLMANUFACTURERS', 'All Manufacturers'); It would be necessary to polish the code but as it is something quick... Best regards from Spain

    before we used community-supported responsive 2.3.4 BS Edge. some one told us " osCommerce is outdated. If this business owner wishes to continue his eCommerce business in next few years, it would be a good idea to replace osCommerce with a solution that has cleaner future." and thats so true and we start to looking around for another cart . but when the community-supported responsive 2.3.4 BS Edge build and created by @burt we get hope back in osCommerce just because of community-supported responsive 2.3.4 BS . and we wished that everyone from coder, dev, shop owner, help @burt and community-supported responsive 2.3.4 BS to be a official osCommerce or at least to let the BS community version alone and not be against it.. long life community-supported responsive 2.3.4 BS @burt Thank you once again for all your hard work.

    @Antonio Garcia Imagine there would be a official marketplace where developers could offer professional modules.. and.. they would offer updated versions of their modules for updated versions of oscommerce. would you buy the updated versions of the needed modules to move from one oscommerce version to another? i would, but my problem is, that i have created alot of code myself and did not document that very well. Ok, with Oscommerce 2.2 you had no other chance as to change core code almost everytime you would use a contribution. But even if i did document the changes that have been made, it would still and is alot of work to get all functionality back when moving to 2.3.4.1BS for example. And thats what i have seen in 2.3.4BS, that for the first time, even for hobby developers, it is possible to do quite alot with modules without changing core code. But this took and takes time. To understand how 2.3.4BS is doing things. And now that i am finally almost finished acomplishing what i could do with my rusty old 2.2MS2 (updated to UTF8 etc), i have a slightly feeling that the BS Version is going to be abandoned as soon as it is finished. To me, since the BS Version started, that was the new Oscommerce to me. I have never looked into what is going on with a 2.4 or 3.0 as this was all in development and alpha state and i had no idea if it would ever come to life. So, years after 2.3.4BS started i am still working on keeping it up2date by just following the changes that are "merged" at github. At least i am trying to, since i have no idea how it is done the right way with github. What i do, and i know this is not the way to keep updated the easy way, is looking what has been changed and using Beyong Compare if necessary. Beside that i had to learn about php composer, to make it possible to use external libraries and to make things like phonenumber validating with libphonenumber and making verification calls using twilio, using a pdf library to offer downloadable pdf invoices or integrating the new maxmind api for fraud scoring into 2.3.4BS. Still need a system that checks other fraud stuff, like total order amount over ip/account/etc etc. All that i have in my old and rusty 2.2MS2. Made it possible there over the years with much "blood, sweat and tears". So when 2.3.4BS started i decided to jump on it with my little skills and try to bring what i have had with 2.2MS2 into 2.3.4BS. still not completly finished yet. In the meantime google is almost killing my old shop that is still running due to all the changes to their index and mobile first etc. So, even if i am not yet ready to jump over to 2.3.4BS i am extremely thankful that Garry and many others took it into their hands and created Oscommerce 2.3.4BS. i am an "old dog" and it is getting harder to learn new tricks ;) but what i know a little is Oscommerce and i decided to keep it that way. I like to be able to make changes to my shop myself. At least as far as possible. And i needed to make those changes, as most shopsystems did not have what i needed for my shop back then. I am sure, i would have been lost with many other shopsystems and would have not been able to make changes there like i do with Oscommerce. Over the years i learned a little php and oscommerce. that is what i can handle. I am thankful for any developer who is giving his time and effort to offer a better Oscommerce or new modules to the community. i am thankful for Garys xxdays of code and i wish there would be a Gary store (or a marketplace in general) with all his cool stuff, so more people would buy from him. I am thankful for every developer who helped make 2.3.4.1BS a responsive reality! And i am thankful that Harald made the old 2.2 and all following versions as well as the payment modules and stuff he created. So, the Question is. Why did you choose Oscommerce? Why do you still choose Oscommerce 2.3.4BS? And is Oscommerce still a shopsystem with a bright future where developers can make a living and customers/shopowners find what they need and can run a succesful shop?

    Regarding Privacy Policies, I was sent an email by a co....interestingly it has "before" (aka now) and "after" (gdpr). aybe have a look and see if you can get inspiration from it; BEFORE (in force now): https://www.fasthosts.co.uk/terms/privacy-policy AFTER (in force from 05/25): https://www.fasthosts.co.uk/terms/privacy-notice To my mind the gdpr version is a lot more clear, and is all common sense. Looks good I think.

    Thank you Antonio. The description on column ordering is ridiculously undocumented on the bootstrap site. The total documentation is: ****Easily change the order of our built-in grid columns with .col-md-push-* and .col-md-pull-* modifier classes.*** I have figured it out however - the issue has nothing to do with the sort order config built in OsC - although the sort order config allows you to give a starting point. The missing part bootstrap should "re"-emphasize is: you cannot re-order columns on smaller screen - you MUST re-order for larger screens (yes I know... bootstrap is "mobile first"... and therefore should have realized my error... a quick google search however I quickly realized I'm, by far, not the only person who missed this critical part). So, use the config sort order to order your columns on smaller screens - THEN use the push/pull features to re-order your columns for larger screens. So - on xs screens: [500] with col-sm-4 col-sm-push-8 [501] with col-sm-8 col-sm-pull-4 BUT on screens sm and larger would become [501] with col-sm-8 col-sm-pull-4 [500] with col-sm-4 col-sm-push-8 Exactly what I'm looking for!

    @John W The new certificate works fine John and fyi...you don't need to change the gateway either. Mine is still pointed to secure instead of secure2 and everything seems to be working as it should. Dan

    Yes, that's where I got my copy. They recently have changed a couple times, and I haven't tried the lastest version. @Bobber Does the latest work for you?

    Let me say something about this. I intend to release a "final". Very soon. Just a few bugfixes to go to do with php7. After that there will be no help (from me) on this forum, not for bugfixes, not for general advice, not for nothing. Those good guy shopowners who have supported my efforts in the last four years will still get help but it will not be at this forum (you are one of these guys). Those shopowners who have just stood on the side while the good guys helped out...will be getting as much help as they have given; none.
