  1. We're proud to announce the introduction of a new App endeavor with the release of PayPal App for osCommerce Online Merchant! We've worked in close collaboration with PayPal to not only bring you updated PayPal payment modules but have also bundled all PayPal modules, including Log In with PayPal, into a single App package for an even tighter integration with osCommerce Online Merchant to enhance both sellers and buyers experiences with PayPal. The PayPal App is optimized for and will be bundled with the upcoming osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.5 release and can be installed on existing installations from v2.2RC2a to v2.3.4. The PayPal App has been architectured to preview and showcase the direction we are taking the new osCommerce Online Merchant v2.4 series in and how the new series will allow you to install and update Apps on your online store through the Administration Dashboard. The PayPal App includes an online update feature that can update itself with a click of a button that will be part of the core in v2.4 for all Apps to take advantage of. We are also extremely proud to be one of the first self-hosted e-commerce solutions to allow the PayPal App to configure itself by securely retrieving the PayPal account API Credentials for you. This is currently available for US and UK sellers and allows you to sign into or create a PayPal live or sandbox account to retrieve the API Credentials from. This makes it extremely easy for new PayPal sellers to start experiencing the PayPal payment methods through a sandbox account and to create a live account as soon as they are ready to accept payments - directly from the osCommerce Administration Dashboard. In addition, the PayPal App includes: - Updated payment modules - Payments Standard: Support for Payment Data Transfer (PDT) payments - Payments Standard: Stock management in IPN notifications - Order Administration: Capture full or partial authorizations, refund full or partial transactions - API Logging: All parameters sent in and received from API calls are logged Documentation for the PayPal App is available at: http://library.oscommerce.com/Package&paypal The PayPal App can be downloaded for free at: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/9184 We look forward to your feedback on this announcement! Please post your feedback to this topic and any support related enquiries to the following channel: http://forums.oscommerce.com/forum/54-paypal/

    2.4 Series

    Hey Guys.. No download release yet, but... as has been noticed, the v2.4.0 Administration Dashboard is being worked on to also bring it up to the same level of awesomeness you have all worked hard on for the shop frontend. Although we're working hard on this, it will take a little bit of time to get all of the administration pages updated. To help test and bug fix the shop frontend and administration dashboard further, v2.4.0 will start as a beta release series for testing and development purposes only. The first set of releases will focus on new installations first and an upgrade procedure for existing v2.2/v2.3 installations will be provided in later releases. The first v2.4.0 beta release includes a core online update feature to 1-click apply update packages. v2.4.1 will be waiting for you as soon as v2.4.0 is pushed out to help test the online update feature. There are still a lot of changes pending so the following rules will apply for the online update feature: During the beta release phase: any file in the catalog and admin directories are applicable to be updated and will overwrite any local changes made. (Eventually all files will be updated once we move from the GPL license to the BSD license) After the beta release phase: any file apart from the catalog root files and shop template files will be applicable to be updated and will overwrite local changes made in other files (eg, in functions, classes, modules, and admin root files). If a manual update to a root catalog file or catalog template file is required, this will be described in the release announcement. As soon as we're ready to leave the beta phase and push out a production ready release, the version number may end up being v2.4.32 and will be marketed as "v2.4". To reach that goal as fast as possible, we will only be requesting feedback on testing and bugs until the first production ready release is made. Feedback for improvements and new features will be welcome after this to include either in the next v2.4.x releases or in v2.5. We have already accumulated a lot of feedback and ideas so we're now focusing on testing and bug fixes. The online update feature is just about ready. As soon as this is pushed out to github, all the development branches will be merged together and v2.4.0beta will be pushed out with a new announcement in the forum (with information about the App framework). Here's a screenshot of the administration dashboard online update page to tease and wet your appetite:

    Forum Software Update (31st July 2018)

    Hi All.. The forum software has just been updated to the latest software version, and there are heavy duty tasks still running in the background that will probably take until tomorrow to complete. This includes reindexing all topics and postings (searching will not work until this is complete), reindexing status updates and activities, recounting statistics, and merging the German forum postings into the new German Community club. The user accounts from the German forum have successfully been merged into this community. This is a start to adding international support to this forum using the Clubs feature of the forum software to separate foreign communities from the main English content. As the forum software update included changes to the user account integration with our main websites, logins and new signups were disabled during the downtime (preventing App Marketplace downloads, sorry) and are now fully functional again. Please post here any quirks you may experience regarding the forum software update or user account issues from our main websites. Thanks! PS, I'm fine. Thanks to those who contacted me in the past. Announcements will be published soon.

    osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.3.4

    osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.3.4 is a general maintenance release focusing on improving core features and the Database Tables "Convert to UTF-8" action introduced in the previous release.

  8. We're extremely proud to announce the next osCommerce Online Merchant release series is rolling out now starting with the beta release of v2.4.0 Joli! This is a developers release that has a rapid weekly release schedule to finalize the framework API and to build on to the v2.x series with quality production ready releases. v2.4.0 Joli Beta includes the community led effort by Gary Burton to modernize the frontend with a responsive Bootstrap template called Sail. This not only aims to improve the customer experience on the site frontend to encourage and improve sales, but also on the site backend with a more user intuitive interface to work with the business side of sales. The OSC\OM framework that was introduced in the v3.0 developer series has been backported and invites developers to start migrating their add-ons to the new self-contained App infrastructure that not only allows for more secure and easier installations of third-party software, but also online installations and updates through the Administration Dashboard (coming in a later beta release). This involves a tight integration into our new App Marketplace that will be launched in the near future. v2.4.0 will be the only public release of the v2.4 beta series - all weekly updates during the beta phase will be delivered through the online update feature to get the online update feature tested on as many server configurations as possible. There are still a lot of changes planned during the beta phase that will break the framework API and is the reason for the beta release series. All changes between releases will be documented to keep developers up-to-date and to help them finalize their Apps for the production ready release. We're committed to Open Source and are continuing our goal of moving from the GPL license to the MIT license. This is the first release in the v2.x series to be completely licensed under the MIT license. osCommerce Online Merchant v2.4.0 Joli Beta can be downloaded at: https://www.oscommerce.com/Products The PayPal for osCommerce Online Merchant App is bundled with this release. The Braintree for osCommerce Online Merchant App can be downloaded separately at: https://apps.oscommerce.com/?Download&paypal&Braintree&2_4_0 It will be possible to install and upgrade Apps directly in the Administration Dashboard in an upcoming beta release. Documentation for this release series is available at: https://library.oscommerce.com/Online&oscom_2_4 Discussions on this release series can be found at: http://forums.oscommerce.com Known issues and bug fixes can be found at: https://github.com/osCommerce/oscommerce2/issues An online demonstration of v2.4.0 Joli Beta can be found at: https://demo.oscommerce.shop/24/ We’d like to thank the community for helping us out with the development of this release and for their continued dedication and support, and especially thank Joli for the good times he shared with all of us in the community. This release series is dedicated to you pal, you will always be remembered.

  10. Hi All.. Attached is a patch that makes the PayPal App v5.010 compatible to v2.3.4 BS. It would be great if this could be tested and feedback provided so it can be pushed out in the online update channel. The PayPal App should be first updated to v5.010, then the contents of the zip package should be copied to your catalog/ directory, overwriting 9 files. update.zip Thanks in advance!

    Forum Software Update (31st July 2018)

  12. Harald Ponce de Leon

    Progress Update

    Hi All.. A quick progress update regarding what we've been working on recently. A new Community Team is being formed to help moderate community submitted content and to help with community relations and issues. This not only helps the developers in the team to focus more on code development and less on moderation, but also broadens the voice in the team when community related issues arise and are addressed. This new approach to the team is being ironed out and we'll be glad to invite more active users in the community to help out once everything is running smoothly again. For the curious, those we have initially invited can be seen on the forum staff page. An internal build of v2.3.5 has been in testing and this weekend will be spent fixing the known issues. A majority of reported issues and pull requests at Github have been addressed and will also make their way into v2.3.6 (the Community Bootstrap edition). These releases are planned to be the last in the v2.3.x release series to place all resources on v2.4/v3.0. Accommodations will be made if the community wish to continue working on v2.3.6 for future v2.3.x releases. More information about this will be announced with the releases. The next test builds will be made available to Ambassadors for a wider testing audience. Both releases will be officially pushed out this month. The forum software has been updated to the latest release series and introduces a new Clubs section to the forum. We've moved our partner announcements forum channels to the Clubs section where our partners can customize their own club sections further with logos and additional discussion channels. We're planning on adding multilingual Clubs in the near future, and also community requested clubs (eg, for community release editions). The upgrade of the forum software version was originally postponed due to changes made with user accounts and the integration we have with our main website. This also plays a role with the marketplace integration in v2.4 where user accounts are required. An online update for 2.4 will be pushed out soon to test the marketplace integration and user account logins/creations with. Release dates for v2.4 will be provided when the marketplace integration online update has been pushed out. Two new websites were planned to be launched in Q4 but are being pushed back to Q1 2018 to push our next releases out first. The new websites are for a proper commercial support inquiry / job marketplace website (to replace the not-so-user-friendly forum channel here in the forums), and a new user profile website (for Ambassadors) to highlight ones profile across all of our websites (submissions from our forums, live sites, and apps marketplace websites), with the focus on the person behind the screen name. Hope everyone has a great festive season!

    2.3.4 to

    v2.3.4.1 is a hotfix release that addresses compatibility with PHP 7 and MySQL 5.7. This is the changelog for the release: * Improve detection of MySQLi during setup. * Update session handler functions to return correct return value types. * Ignore E_DEPRECATED PHP notices. * Set empty MySQL sql_mode for compatibility across MySQL versions.
  14. This is strange as the minimum cURL and OpenSSL version requirements for TLS v1.2 are supported (judging by your screenshots). Do test transactions work with PayPal with "Verify SSL" set to True and "SSL Version" set to either Default or TLS v1.2? It might just be the test connection script failing under your environment.
  15. Just to clarify that statement, the SSL certificate used on the web server (to serve https) has nothing to do with the ssl libraries curl have been compiled with into PHP. Optimally, Verify SSL should be left to True. Try setting the SSL Version from Default to TLS v1.2.

    2.3.4 to

    If you're already running on v2.3.4 without any issues, there is no need to update to v2.3.4.1. It would be better to update to v2.3.5 to apply the latest security fixes, compatibility fixes, and bug fixes. You will also have the option to update to v2.3.6 when you're ready to move to the bootstrap series. v2.3.5 will not break compatibility with existing addons - it's a maintenance release that will finalize the v2.3.4 release series and is planned to be the last release of this series. v2.3.6 may break compatibility with existing v2.3.4 addons due to moving to bootstrap. The 2.3.6 version label will be added to the Apps Marketplace once it's released so updated addons and Apps can be clearly labelled.

    2.4 Series

    Yes it does. It falls back to mysql_* if mysqli is not available.

    2.4 Series

    @MrPhil Pitchforks and two update channels Permissions to gather pitchforks has been granted. In addition, two update release channels could be implemented: "stable" and "latest". Normal releases call out the "stable" update channel looking for updates to apply. A setting can change this to "latest" to call out the latest update channel where changes pending a normal/stable release can be pushed to.

    2.4 Series

    Hi All.. v2.3.4.1 has just been pushed out with the MySQLi setup detection fix and PHP 7/MySQL 5.7 compatibility updates. This is a silent release as v2.3.5 and v2.3.6 will be pushed out soon that has these fixes already incorporated. These minor fixes were a major showstopper for new installations - far greater than I had thought of. I'm still working hard on "the big picture" and achieving my goals for this year, and sometimes need a f* tonn of pings to address these "minor" code changes. I apologize for that and urge you to keep pinging me in the future when similar showstoppers arise. v2.3.4.1 does not address bootstrap/edge, that is what v2.3.6 is for.

    new tab app inside forms

    This is what I get when I submit that form: array(13) { ["pages_id"]=> string(2) "37" ["pages_title_"]=> string(7) "fsgrstg" ["page_date_start"]=> string(0) "" ["page_date_closed"]=> string(0) "" ["sort_order"]=> string(1) "0" ["id"]=> string(1) "0" ["user_question"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(0) "" } ["language"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(1) "0" } ["google_choice"]=> string(1) "0" ["facebook_choice"]=> string(1) "0" ["telegram_choice"]=> string(1) "0" ["bot_response"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(0) "" } ["bot_language"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(1) "0" } } It looks like the fields are submitted.

    2.4 Series

    Guys, the next updates will be pushed out this month. v2.3.5 and v2.3.6 will be out this month, and v2.4 will be out next month. The community bootstrap edition Gary worked on will be moved to the official v2.3.6 version.
  24. cheapest() will stay in there as Apps may need to access the cheapest rate (eg, to show "Shipping from $x").
  25. The same commit that will go in v2.3.6: https://github.com/haraldpdl/oscommerce2/commit/2bb09c92eb3738057fb5f5473fad196825bc47bf
