  1. We recently had a web develop integrate Braintree to our OsCommerce website, however we keep getting card declines. some payments go through but most are declining. We have tried with having 3D verifucation turned on and off but makes no difference.

    Would anyone be able to advise if they have had the same issue or know a way of solving this problem.

    Greatly appiciated.

  2. New add-on available...

    Has been made in to a header module as it’s easier to keep it on the top of the display on small screens. Other than that the rest is the same as the box version.

    You can also set the sub-cats display depth in admin. Other than that the rest is the same as the box version.

    That’s it enjoy.

    Has been tested on Phoenix V1.0.5.4 only.

  3. @Wal The subcats will require you to make a change to the code. In


    around line 39 find


    and change the number to the level you need like


    This will then when you click on a cat once when you go back to the menu a second time will show the sub cats

    So this


    will become this... see the 2 subcats now shown?


    At some point I will get round to adding the level set into the admin so users can change it without needing to edit code. However I think that will have to wait untill things get better around here!!

  4. 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

    Amber for Low

    Red for No Stock

    Has been tested on Phoenix only.

    That’s it Enjoy!...

    Example: our  client`s store with 40000 products placed in Malaysia based on solomono oscommerce

    Had a look at that and the USA store and very impressive. Both preform much better than I expected with a full load of add-on's and high products count.

    Will be intresting to see how your CE version turns out. Will be good to have another option on the forum.

    Looking fowared to trying it out.

    cutting corners like this is not going to work. No big company running a webshop is going to manage products this way.

    Has nothing to do with cutting corners it was a commercial desision based on user experiance and feed back. Result was simpler for us to handle products and much simpler for customers to find and order what they were looking for.

    If complex attributes is what you need then that's fine everyone has own needs and ways to achive these.

    Nobody deals with this module, so I will look for other options.


    One of the reasons these old add-on's have not been updated could be that very few people use them? I stopped using even simple attributes many years ago. We insted opted to simply have each veriant as a true product. This has the advantage of giving your site more content which google will like. Yes it takes a bit more time but not much and it's best to make an effort to make the content individual rather than just cut and paste.

    I know this is not an option for everyone... on the plus side saw a big drop in wrong orders! one of the issues we always had with attributes is people either used the default or did not even look at the option and assumed what they needed was not available. The number of times we had a email or call "but I need a 1.6m version?" yes just use the drop down to see all the options! 😊... 


  9. A simple add-on’s that allows you to display stock links in the footer of your site with more display flexibility.

    It’s a simple no core change add-on so just copy files over go to admin and install and setup. It uses the stock Phoenix links

    The display of the links can be set in admin to be row or column.

    When set to row and seen on a small screen display will show only one link at a time as they auto scroll by. Touching the link will stop the scroll.

    The add-on includes one additional link to a price list. This is optional if you don't need it then don't use it. As with all stock links they can be added to or removed in the language file.

    That’s it enjoy.

    It has only been tested on Phoenix only.

    Row display,


    Small screen display



  10. A simple add-on to let you place promotional offer tabs onto your site index page. This let’s you make a splash on your home page. Show your imagination and display you best offers in a creative and stylish way on the home page of your site. Lets you put 4 tabs on to the index page which can contain anything you like. Again totally standalone with no core code change. Simply copy all files into relevant sections and go to admin and install.

    1. If the selected text is very long, in mobile view the text is lost. Attachment an example. How can i fix it?

    Yes long text is always going to be a problem with Boostrap and mobile devices... I have not found a good solution to this. It is always going to be a compromise!

    If you wrap the text then you have a big block on a small screen? If you tuncate the long text you lose the mesage 😊, may be one of the experts has a solution. For me I built in a compromise which you can adjust as required.

    in the template file you will find

    @media screen and (max-width: 600px) {
    #sale2  {
        font-size: 1rem;

    This works for normal short message which fits as shown on my site. If you need a longer message then you can adjust this as required. So if I make the test twice as long...


    this is what you have on large screen. To make it work on small screens just change to this...

    @media screen and (max-width: 600px) {
    #sale2  {
        font-size: 2vw;

    and on mobile you get... As i said it's a compromise.


    For Frozen? I do not know I have not tested any Phoenix add-on on frozen. Most people will have Frozen BS3 so I do not think they will work not with out making changes.
