    Shipping table is now a real table :)

    Today I decided I got angry for the last time updating a table rate based module. Afer several tryouts to change the shipping rates just to see I had a typo in the values string -damned colons- and having to manually calculate the net prices for each row from the gross that came from the table provided by the courier... I had enough and modified the table rate module to show a real table where you can see what you're doing. Uses some javascript to update net/gross, add or remove rows and do some basic checks. It can be adapted to any other module that uses the same system. Note: The net pice is caclulated based on the tax class from the module. It will apply only to the countries in the module's zone and it's not savet to database but calculated on the fly. For this column to work you need to set up the tax rate first, save and enter the module configuration again. Here is the file: https://apps.oscommerce.com/wyYLv&sgipping-table-module-update @burt you can replace the stock one if you consider it fits the community project.

    Admin responsive sidebar with bootstrap

    This is a admin sidebar that replaces the stock menu. It can be expanded or condensed on a column of icons. It also adds bootstrap framework to admin. Hope you enjoy it. Please comment here if you have any improvements or find any problem. Download: https://apps.oscommerce.com/ebjVY&admin-responsive-sidebar-with-bootstrap

    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.

    Slim Checkout for BS

    Slim-Checkout Common opinion is that the checkout process should be as "slim" as possible. This means to hide all page elements which are not strict necessary to show to the customer a simple clean layout, so nothing disturbs his attention from the purchase process. This add-on allows to do it by simple settings in a Header Tag module. Git Hub Repository: https://github.com/raiwa/Slim-Checkout/tree/master What it does: - allows to hide elements on checkout pages - optional hide on checkout pages (checkout_shipping.php, checkout_payment.phpheckout_confirmation.php and checkout_success) - optional hide also on shopping_cart.php - select each group to hide (navbar, header area, boxes, footer and footer suffix Installation: - copy all new files - install and adjust Slim Checkout Header Tag testing , Bug reports and suggestions very welcome. rgds Rainer

    Shopowners Club - Core Suggestions

    Are you a shopowner? Help make the core osCommerce software better! This is the place where you can let the osCommerce team know about an idea (or ideas!) to improve the core software. First a definition: "core" osCommerce software is the package that is downloaded and installed by default. This isn't the place to write a wishlist of addons you'd like to see in the base osCommerce. Don't forget that lots of functionality is able to be added with addons that can easily be uploaded and turned on due to the modularity of osCommerce. The last thing we need is a bloated package full of "features" that will never be used by a large majority of shopowners. If you have an idea for an app, post it here. What is welcome here is ideas that can, for instance, make it even easier for addons to be installed. Perhaps you (or your developer) have found developing and adding a particular addon is too difficult because you need to dive into core code. In that case, let the developers know! Perhaps you can't find ways to turn things on or off. Or something you want to do is way too difficult because of the way the core code is structured. We as shopowners who deal with the day to day running of stores and have the knowledge as to how osCommerce can be improved for both us and our customers. This is our opportunity to have some input into the direction of the software. Anything to do with the core code that would make your life easier as a shopowner, let the team know by posting it here.

    Email queuing system

    Great, it's looking good... Burty signed up today but didn't complete a checkout - Email will go out in 5 days asking if there was a problem *** - Email will go out 31 July with birthday wishes (21 days prior to his birthday) Dan signed up today and gave his birthday, and completed a checkout - Email will go out 27 April wishing him a happy birthday (approx 3 weeks prior to birthday) - Email will go out 10th May (60 days) asking for a review - Email will go out 10th March 2020 asking why he hasn't ordered for a year *** Rene completed a checkout today - Email will go out 10th May (60 days) asking for a review - Email will go out 10th March 2020 asking why he hasn't ordered for a year *** Steve completed a checkout today - Email will go out 10th May (60 days) asking for a review - Email will go out 10th March 2020 asking why he hasn't ordered for a year *** *** - these emails get cancelled depending on customer interaction. As an example, let us say that Burty logs in 2 days from now (13 March)...and completes a checkout...what happens: no_checkout is cancelled as he has now checked out request_review goes out in 60 days (so May 12th or so) from the date of sale winback will go out about 13th March 2020 asking why he hasn't bought anything for a year (remembering that this would be cancelled if he did log in inside that year) Pretty cool little system ? I'm pleased with how it's turned out. You may have noticed I made a "no_checkout" slug - it took less than two minutes, no core code changes - all plugged into the system automatically. BOOM! That is the future of osCommerce.

    Addon Feedback

    @JcMagpie These are your addons and support threads and the community will benefit from them. Please reconsider offering public support. I know it can be distracting having to read posts from "professionals" that feel threatened by you, but I think it's best to not take the bait and simply ignore/report inappropriate posts.

    Addon Feedback

    The interest of a forum is to be able to read both the question AND the answer. We are rarely the only one to have a problem. Find the answer on the forum, it helps a lot, lived experience. If the answer is made only by PM, it does not help the community at all.

    Addon Feedback

    Certainly, a member of the forum may have been the straw that makes the vase overflow, but it should not be seen as a personal attack. I think some here forget what OsCommerce is all about: allowing shop owners to have an online store. Competition is often due between shop owners who have the same activity. The customer will not necessarily choose the lowest prices, but he will choose a site where navigation is fast. A site can be fast thanks to a good host, but also because its code is clean and optimized. A code with lots of code errors (html, php and / or mysql) will slow down the site, creating random errors that will be displayed to the client. And that's not good at all. To be able to report a badly realized addon is not to declare the war to its author, but to render a service to all the shop owners who will install it. A shop is not a toy, it is a source of income. I think I remember that in his HPDL roadmap came the idea that addons should be checked before publication. This joins burt's idea in a way.

    Addon installer concept

    Now that oscommerce community version allows more an more addons with no core code changes I feel an uploader/installer would make things simpler and also help a lot those newcomers that does not have the knowledge to ftp files. We don't have a repository adapted to it, but we could ideate a simple system that allows to upload a zip file by browser, uncomprees it, do some preliminar checks like if the addon is currently installed and is compatible with the system and with copying files/making registry entries when user press "install". Been playing with the idea of something like the paypal app updater and came up with this: Would like to get feedback from developers about it. It would need, of course, that developers agree with packaging the addons with a certain structure and provide with a file that performs the tasks. Do you consider interesting to make a similar system?

    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.

    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.

    Frozen bug list

    I've been thinking of doing the same. Here are some changes that should be made (not all are mistakes): 1 - In includes/modules/content/product_info\templates/tpl_cm_pi_price.php, the variables in sprintf are in the wrong order. Change <h2 class="h3 text-right-not-xs"><?php echo (tep_not_null($specials_price)) ? sprintf(MODULE_CONTENT_PI_PRICE_DISPLAY_SPECIAL, $specials_price, $products_price) : sprintf(MODULE_CONTENT_PI_PRICE_DISPLAY, $products_price); ?></h2> to <h2 class="h3 text-right-not-xs"><?php echo (tep_not_null($specials_price)) ? sprintf(MODULE_CONTENT_PI_PRICE_DISPLAY_SPECIAL, $products_price, $specials_price) : sprintf(MODULE_CONTENT_PI_PRICE_DISPLAY, $products_price); ?></h2> 2 - In languages/create_account_success.php change priviledges to privileges. 3 - In languages/shopping_cart.php change two instances of "don't" to "don\'t". 4 - In languages/shopping_cart.php change "immediate deliver" to "immediate delivery". 5 - In includes/application_top, add the deprecated flag to prevent future warnings and disable display errors since it is a security hole by changing error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_STRICT); to error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_STRICT & ~E_USER_DEPRECATED); ini_set('display_errors','0'); 6 - In includes/template_top.php, change the version number to the current one because some icons being used won't work in V 5.0.6. <script defer src="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.0.6/js/all.js"></script> to <script defer src="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.0.9/js/all.js"></script>

    Shopowners Club - Core Suggestions

    Many of you may be thinking..."whut?" but ... I promise you ... Core Code Changes are possible. Every single change I (and others) have made to the Community Edition, is a Core Code Change. Typical examples; @Tsimi and I found a bottleneck in /includes/application_top.php. Fixed! @BrockleyJohn wanted some extra getContent calls. Done! @raiwa wanted auto included hooks. Done! more examples if you want them So long as what is asked for, makes sense...

    ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    I just quote from google All what google says is they recommend or say it is good practice to make the URLs read-friendly so that customers/users can read or use the URL as link or navigation guide. It doesn't say one word that it will improve your SEO because of that. Google just says you should keep it organized. Another quote Again, no mention of SEO benefit. Visitor friendly does not equal better SEO or SEO results. Lastly, everyone can do what they want with their shop site it is their website and they should know what their customers might want. Look at Amazon, eBay or some other big shop they all have different URLs, some long, some short, some easier to read, some are super long and complicated. Important is that the "real" SEO stuff in your shop is working as it should then you'll end up getting good search results. So what @burt said isn't wrong at all. User friendly URLs have nothing to do with SEO.

    This addon minifies the shops css file. If multiple files are selected, it will combine them all into one file. This can reduce the time it takes for the shop to load. Depending upon the size of the css file and how many there are, the page load speed can be reduced by several seconds. It works in any oscommerce shop. For the 2.3.4 shops (both official and Responsive versions), the installation just involves uploading files. For older shops, one change may be needed.

    Slim Checkout for BS

    @raiwa Well done! We appreciate all the hard work you put into your addons and projects but please do me a favor and don't work too much/hard. In the past I/we have lost 2 very good friends from this forum and the last thing I remember was, they were working hard on some addons/projects and it could have been just mere coincidence or just fact that they overworked themselfs till their body gave up. You maintain multiple addons, you work with me on the Point and Rewards module, Sloppy words cleaner and, and, and.... Long story short, watch your health and take enough rest so that we will be able to enjoy you and your work for many years to come. That goes for all of you out there. osC is nice and all but it won't bring you anything if you work yourself to death. Now back to work....
