    Email queuing system

    Real life feedback/ideas from shopowners lead me to this change; With one extra line of code in the main module I made this a reality, so now it's possible to use the {{TAG}} system in the Title as so: and when received looks like (eg) this: Pretty damned cool!

    Gone over most of this and it works like a charm. Was easy to install simply follow instructions and should have no issues. I simply copied ove my old config and .htaccess files and was able to log into new admin. I kept it simple by renaming my old admin and naming the new one the same as the old so no config changes needed. Not going to post link to admin! so here is a short view of what the new admin looks like. I would recomend taking a look and using it. Oh and you can show your appreciation for the work done by simon by looking at the bottom of his text in the app's market 😊 buy him a beer or 2. Thank's Simon

    Email queuing system

    I've now created a module for order_success to replace the standard order success email that osC sends. If anyone wants to test it: https://template.me.uk/outgoing/ and progress all the way through the checkout. You'll get an email sent by this new system - so PLEASE use a real email address... This system is looking like another game-changer.

    Email queuing system

    We also now have Filtering (for the outgoing Queue). Now easily see individual customers or slugs. As an example, let's say that the Queue has 200 emails in it waiting to go out over the next 3 months. Examples of use; You want to see all "birthday_greetings", select that slug from the dropdown and press go. You want to see all emails that are going out to a particular customer. Select that customer and press go. You want to see all "review_requests" going to a particular customers. Select slug and customer, and press go. This thing is getting better and better...

    php 7.2 - updating CE

    I'm slowly but surely, as and when I can give time, updating the software. Thanks to all who are helping the software to move forward 👍

    So first backup and then backup ant then once again backup! Now just to be safe make a copy of your database. phpmyAdmin select your database then go to operations tab and select copy database to ...... you should then have a copy of your db. test any SQL scritp on a copy first. so use this to set product_status on all products with price over or equal to £299 to 0(turned off) update `products` set `products_status` = 0 WHERE `products_price` >= '299'; tested on CE and MySQL - 10.1.38-MariaDB-cll-lve

    You could give it a go by doing as suggested above by jcmagpie => a new admin folder to run alongside your real admin.

    International SEO

    Every time SEO Urls has been metioned I've heard "there's no point on using it nowadays". Well this is a true example of why these are still useful and why oscommerce has a poor localization. If you have a multilingual shop and you want it to be correctly indexed you really, really need a SEO addon that rewrites urls for each language. BTW I've been tweaking the latest versions of SEO urls 5 and there's a glitch with hreflang tags not being correctly shown until session is set - so spiders can¡t see it. I'll fix it and upload again in case someone wants to use it.

    Email queuing system

    Whilst I have not seen what you are doing I have been following this thread with anticipation for anything better than is originally available. It sound like you are getting somewhere Gary. Well done. I would love to see a system where order status update emails could be written specifically for the update status replacing the standard 'your order has been upgraded to' emails. And the same with the 'new customer' or other emails. They are all a bit plain and do nothing for future sales. Like I say, cant wait to see where this leads as it sounds good.

    Email queuing system

    Yes - the system does not yet replace the usual outgoing emails - but I am certain, in the near future, something like this system has to be put in place for all emails. Template-able Emails - it has to be the future!

    Email queuing system

    Code has gone out to two testers. Depending on feedback given over the next week or two, should see this system into the wild. It's close...

    Email queuing system

    It sends to whoever the shopowner is targeting with the individual modules. In the example modules I've come up with, that's all customers... I am certain this system is the acorn that will grow into what CE will use for emails in the future.

    php 7.2 - updating CE

    As PHP 7.2 is now fairly well established (and PHP 7.3 is starting to show up), any thoughts on how "Frozen" could be upgraded to work on 7.2 and up? If there are a lot of changes to make, perhaps general guidelines would be in order, rather than an exhaustive list of fixes (or even an add-on!). This would still leave a lot of work to be done by shop owners, but it may be the best we can do. Add-ons will be yet another issue. I presume that Edge is/will be PHP-7.2 ready out of the box, but there are still a lot of people on Frozen just because it's nice and stable. That's the one that I install for clients. Once Slushee comes out (next freeze of Edge), that is at least PHP-7.2 ready, I would assume that any further work on Frozen would cease. And oh, how about calling the next one osC 2.3.5? It's obvious that HPDL is never going to accept any of Gary's work as the official product, and he's probably never going to release another osC, so why not ease the confusion?

    JcM Product info description_tabs Select Have been updated to version 1.3 to make them multilingual. I am not going to update any other version of this so if you need multilingual then turn off curent version and uninstall module and the deleat files. Then simply copy over new files , install in admin and setup. For those who are using these but have mofified the code! well it's up to you to compare the changes and update if needed.

    lso I think you are a bit confused! osC is not magic! it will not auto create language files 😊 Yes the tabs at the moment are single language only as I made them for my site but all stock data used is stock osC and it's up to you to add the alternative text. This is you english page showing Swedish stock text This is your Swedish page again showing Sweedish stock text. Ig noring the tabs ( thats all down to me ) I can only assume yo have not added english text in you products in admin? To use osC as muliligual you have to add text in admin for every language you use. Also every time you change a product info you must make that change to all languages. which is a real pain in the butt! Hence I recommend using the Google Translate add-on. https://apps.oscommerce.com/mYuUD&info-box-with-google-translate-bs4

    Not posiable with current tabs. It's on a long list of thngs to do. You will have noticed I have been updating the ones people have asked for so this will join that list and when I have time it will be updated. Or you can do it your self, its not hard it's simple case of adding a language file and moving the defines from the class to the language file. This will mean that you then have to edit a language file in order make changes rather than simplely in the admin module edit. This should only be affecting new content such as tab names and such. All stock content is still mulitlingual! Or you can support the CE software and buy Burt's 28days as I belive it has tabs in it.

    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".

    Thank's for the feedback. Looks like a silly copy error. JcM Product info Share or Contact V1.3 Has been updated to fix file location and taken the opportunity to make it multilingual.

    JcM Back to Top Header Tags-V1.0 A simple header_tag module to let you place a back to top button on your site. You can configure the button in admin. This is a standalone add-on and makes no changes to core files. That’s it simply copy all files of the into relevant sections and go to admin modules /header tags and install. Has been tested on CE BS4 and CE BS3
