  1. Thanks

    Yes. Be sure to use my addon instead of the worldpay module delivered with Phoenix because that still has an unfixed bug in it and you'll get blank order emails. The addon also brings people who cancel back into the checkout process, and records more info on the order history.
    addon: https://apps.oscommerce.com/brAIY&worldpay-hosted-payments-extended

    If you are not using the PI modules in Phoenix I have uploaded an addon to enable this type of page layout with only changing one file and creating a few new folders. Really easy to instal and use and can still use any standard content module that is created for the product info page.
    Addon can be found at https://apps.oscommerce.com/wilqp&better-product-info-page-layout-phoenix

    - Removed database table constants.
    - TODO: Allow to processs links outside root folder (ie. ext/directory). This is useful for addons like Twitter typeahead.
    Can someone test the atached files before uploading to addons?

    I think the best I've heard was someone bought a laptop in July and tried to return it as damaged in December as it was an 'xmas' present they'd not opened it until xmas day.

    I have had a few funny return requests in the past.
    1. Customer contacts me and asks why the parcel they received was empty. They then insinuate that someone in the picking department must have stolen it. I explain that I am a one person business and I will check the certificate of posting to see what weight was registered when posting. The phone went dead never heard from again.
    2. The item is faulty. I ask that the item is returned  with a copy of the original invoice as proof of purchase. They refuse to return item, and I refuse a refund. Upon checking their details I find it was 13 months after they purchased the item. Never hear from again.
    3. A customer accused me of sending a short coil of wire. He bought 10m of wire which is hand measured and cut from a large reel. I ask for the item to be returned with a copy of the invoice and it does actually come back but its in about 8 short lengths. The copy invoice is not even one of mine, but one of my competitors who I get along with. We both laughed about it now, but no refund was given.
    Customers do at time try it on.

    Most folks are good, decent and honest.
    However, here are a couple of my favorite customer scam attempts...
    Customer:  I bought this item for my dog and it's too small.  Please send the next size up.
    Checking sale records we find the purchase was months, sometime a year or more ago.
    Response:  I'm sorry that happened.   Please return the item clean and original condition,  with tags attached and we'll process for you.
    Result:  Never hear from them again.
    Customer:  The item you sent is broken/damaged.  How do you plan to make this right by me?
    Response:  I'm sorry that happened.  Please send pictures of the damaged item and the original packing.  Thank you.
    Result:  Never hear from them again.

    altoid reacted to BrockleyJohn in NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!   
    I have just uploaded v1.2.6 for CE Phoenix to
    It includes some bug fixes to edit_orders.php and the header_tags.php module.
    Bug fixes include those reported by @artfulweb and some of the php7.3 compatibility issues that I came across in a quick fire-up
    The thrust of the changes is that the hooks system is slightly different in Phoenix so the modified orders.php is different, some more constants have been hard-coded and checking if variables are set has been added before checking if they are arrays.

    altoid reacted to mfleeson in Moving Data from previous Osc to Phoenix   
    As part of my experimentation with Phoenix, I wrote the following database script to move my current live data into Phoenix so I could see what it did. I thought I'd share it for anyone who's needing to move a live store to test or vice-versa. Any questions/comments please let me know.
    For this script to work, load it into your database tool and search and replace changing old_db to the name of your current live site (or origin data), select the new phoenix database and run the queries there.
    A couple of things I noticed moving from a 2.3.4 to Phoenix.
    Check your old sites categories_description table.  Some older sites do not have categories_seo_description so this will fail on the select. change to '' in select.
    Check your manufacturers_info table for 'manufacturers_seo_description',and other seo fields and if it fails change them to '' in the select.
    If you get an error Data truncated for column then it means your old table has larger text length than in phoenix. Adjust phoenix field length and re-run query.
    A lot of old products table do not have products_gtin fields, modify field to '' in query
    Test Move SQL.sql

    A lot of triviality, but if things are bust they need to be fixed.  Anyone can raise an issue at Github, chat about it to find the best resolution... then if necessary they can fix & push, that's the beauty of an open codebase allied to people who care about Phoenix being the best it can be.

    Dear All,
    My website has been upgraded to Phoenix  (latest version).
    It was previously Edge BS3 (pre-frozen).
    Main improvements are:
    1. much faster
    2. new features in Phoenix (sitewide hooks, modular shopping cart, product_info pages, improved modules etc.) make life easier.
    3. Bootstrap 4 has much neater ways of doing things than Bootstrap 3. Shorthand classes in particular make things cleaner and simpler. Bootstrap 4 is also mobile first.
    A special thank you to @burt for accepting my request to assist me with what was a very quick 'migration'  to Phoenix. This involved starting off fresh with Phoenix, making change and cleaning up all my blundered custom 'coding' from my BS3 installation.
    Thank you also to @burt for keeping the project alive.
    I have done a lot of comparisons recently against other open-source and commercialised shopping cart software. I  also habitually look closely at any website I am on as I am sure many others here do.  Phoenix holds its own against most others. You can get a nice-looking website up and running fairly quickly from scratch.
    Happy as always for any feedback or areas of improvement.
    Note: I could not edit my original post on this board for some reason, so happy of course for them to me merged if a moderator obliges.

    At this moment, today...Phoenix is the only viable option for a shopowner who wants a php7 ready and responsive version of osCommerce.
    I work on Phoenix every day, pushing it forward as best I can and I have a good group of shopowners and developers backing me up and giving ideas and advice.  If I wanted to start up a shop or to update an older osC version, I would utilise Phoenix and become involved in where it goes next.
