    Change index page

    I'm not sure what you mean by "correct blog" but I think what you are looking for is the Featured Products addon.

    Increase Shipping Weights via SQL

    update products set products_weight = 1.1 where products_weight < 1; You might like to take a backup of the products table (in phpmyadmin) prior to doing so.

    JcM Index Banner carousel Animated V1.0 This is an Index add-on that lets you place a carousel banner on the index page of your site which can be animated if required. It will show up to 8 banners. It allow start and finish dates to be set for the banners. This can only be done for the last 7 as the first must always be active for carousel to run. Banner will only show when start date is reached and will turn off on end date. The date must be entered in correct format. Simply copy over all files install and turn on like any other add-on. The overlay text for each banner and images can be set in the language file. You can also select which pages it is to be shown on. The animation is set by the header tags add-on which must be installed once only. It’s a bit complicated to explain but if you play with it you will figure it out. Each banner can have its own animation as can the 2 text groups on each banner. You can also use the animated class’s on any other add-on if you wish by simply adding the required class. That’s it enjoy. It has only been tested on Phoenix only. Can be seen working on this custom test site

    Thank you everyone for your input, it is greatly appreciated, Special props to Burt for giving us Phoenix! I have made my decision to proceed with my Frozen conversion to and I will list my reasons below: 1. Given the previous slow rate of oscommerce updates, it is great to see active updates with phoenix that are quick and easy to apply, hence to start with the latest, even if I take a month while converting my database the updates will be minimal and quick so I wont be left behind. 2. After to doing an update from 2.2 to 2.3.4 upto Frozen, I found that the only modules I ever used were Quick stock update, modified specials (like a quick bulk update for specials), Ckeditor with Linuxuk Pages to edit pages, IP Trap, Store Mode, Honeypot Captcha and the now old Australia Post module (which I no longer use as I have setup zone rates finally.) I used to have alot of addons that were never used and not maintained by the original authors and since I am not a coder, I found it far too difficult to try and make them work. With such a small set of addons, some of which are now drop in without core code edits, along with various site tweaks, the setup process should be quite straightforward and will keep me up to date and secure. 3. Even without the addons listed above, I can still get the store up and running as the core of oscommerce is there, which is to be live and get sales. It is rather interesting to look at my previous store versions and see how bloated I made it with addons that just never got used, and I hope I now have the essentials which will keep me going. I will be converting my database as per Burts guidelines, doing comparisons between each db table entry exept for the config files then uploading to the new store, then doing configuration. Again I want to thank everyone for their input, I will hope that this will help other people to make the decision to take the leap as to what will suit them! Cheers all! On an off topic, I was about to donate to Phoenix pro, but just lost my "real" job as of today due the corona virus, so my apologies Burt, my donation will have to wait until a bit longer.

    I would also point out that the original question was not if people should stop updating when they test an update and find it breaks an App (what most of the discussion suggests) but whether, starting now, someone should install or some older version. It is certainly possible that there are Apps that are broken in that are not broken in, but it is not definite that the (unknown) Apps that the asker needs are more broken in than in And it may be that some of things that that particular shop needs are easier to do in than In my opinion, it would be better to start with first and figure out what is and is not possible with that rather than start with the assumption that (or some other version) would be better.

    My suggestion; make a new thread laying out your concerns so that they can be addressed. I would prefer that you do that in the club (so that it is easier for me to reply without getting dragged into "drama" that some users like to create, but it's up to you).
