    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".

    I think it would be great to make a package (called frozen 2 or as you like) that has the new admin of @shetch and the Frozen version with its bug fixes so that new users can download them in one place. What the community lacks are periodic updates to show that the software is alive. I do not know if this is the best place to post it, but the work of @shetchis fantastic, it's the cooler in oscommerce for a long time and it would be great to integrate it into the Frozen package. What do you think? Best regards. Valqui

    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.

    @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.

    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.

    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.

    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 👍

    Would it be of interest to the shopowner community if public feedback was given on addon support threads? Feedback could be from other shopowners and from coders. I'm thinking things like: This addon uses incorrect HTML This addon is not multilingual This addon should use addBlock not addContent This addon is excellent in all regards etcetc

    Back to CONSTRUCTIVE Addons Feedback. Let's try it. Feel free to start giving constructive feedback on Support threads. I am certain that addon makers will thank you for it. Addon makers: if the feedback is not constructive or is just personal rubbish, report the post using the usual mechanism.

    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.

    php 7.2 - updating CE

    With a big thanks to @Heatherbell I have a day next week and a day the week after to commence work on; fixing php7.2 warnings and errors translating old x.x (some of which relates to php4!) php code to newer 7.x formatted code In the meantime, if anyone sees any more errors/warnings please reply to this thread stating what the error says and where you found it (eg an URL) or how you made the error appear (eg only happens when pressing edit on XYZ module) and so on. As much details as you can give would be very helpful.

    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!

    Email queuing system

    Adding in those extra {{XYZ}} tags has caused problems. Main problem being on the admin side when adding an email into the Queue, the extra {{XYZ}} tags over and above the basic (always available) ones were impossible to add. That's now solved after much banging of head on keyboard. So, I think it's now good to start being properly tested - over the weekend I'll upload the new files to the demo site, clean out the queued emails and ask for testers (once again, sorry)...

    Email queuing system

    And here's the Slug page, aka email templates... So, just one more thing to do...send out emails at about the right time, and make sure the emails use the merge_vars as shown (anyone who runs Mandrill will understand merge_vars). But in this relatively simple system, assuming an email was going out to Donald Duck, the word {{FNAME}} would be replaced with "Donald". So, next step is to tie it all together and see if the concept works...

    Email queuing system

    These two (especially the reviews one) are game changing for shopowners, in my opinion. I'm trying to make another game-changer based on the ideas in this thread and have gotten it sort of working; In this example, a new customer "Donald Duck" just signed up...he gave his birthday as 10th November 1960; send at (birthday) will go out 21 days prior: 20th October send at (shipping follow up) will go out in 21 days from now send at (request review) will go out 30 days from now That's the basis of this system. I will also create an admin page where shopowner can easily see the email queue and delete/add emails. This is a complicated project, but I have it under control. Any more ideas for emails to go into the Email Queue?

    Addon Feedback

    Support threads can/should also be a channel to improve and build on to the add-on to make it better for the community. So of course feedback and suggestions should not only be allowed but encouraged. However telling someone that their addon is garbage is absurd and discourages others who would like to contribute for fear of public ridicule. This is an open source and community environment. It's tantamount to a teacher telling a student to be quiet because his question is stupid. There is no teacher here...no hierarchy that I can see. We all can learn from each other. Some coding "expert" demanding code changes is laughable. The concept is offer polite suggestions and move on. If you don't like an addon don't use it or better yet create your own....or even better simply work together. The personal insults/posturing is getting old. I'm tired of reading them.

    Just a little light hearted fun for the festive season. 😊 JcM Festive Snowfall V1.0 CE BS4/3 A simple add-on to let you add some festive cheer to your website. Will give a falling snow shower all over the website. Can be configured in admin to set quantity, size, speed, color and shape of the snowfall. Again totally standalone with no core code change. Simply copy all files into relevant sections and go to admin modules /content and install. Has been tested on CE BS4 and CE BS3. Again can be seen running on the test sites. https://chilleddisplays.co.uk/ Enjoy.

    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.
