  1. Are you contemplating to do the same with the ADMIN area? If only involves 4-5 files of change & 1 hour of work, I think that I worth the task. I LOVE the new bootstrap 4 admin area but it need a carefully search of the duplicate code in the admin/includes and revamp with B4 all the remaining (non default) pages... and also it should be fine for Gold, Edge, Frozen, Phoenix, and the rest of the variants (as the admin is almost identical).

    require('includes/application_top.php'); //<-- you need find this line and insert the code bellow // includes your function file here require('includes/module/store/st_addon.php'); Insert this code in product_info.php file...
  3. @JcMagpie Thanks for the addon and for the work fixing the bugs found! @multimixer Thanks for report the issue and take your time reading / understanding / finding bugs in the code written for others. @valquiria23 Gracias por tu amable optimismo! (Thanks to be positive, as always!) My quote: "Write code as if it were to be read by a psychopath who knows where you live ..." (Unknown for me, may be Winston Churchill, Napoleon, Einstein or may be Carl Sagan...)

    Español pack para OsC Responsive BS EDGE o Gold

    @valquiria23, perdona por la intromisión. Me parece que no eres Española, sino que nos hablas desde el otro lado del Atlántico, ¿Me equivoco? ¿Has visto muchas cosas en la traducción de Rainer que no diríais igual en Argentina? (eso de 'acordate' me hace pensar que 'vos sos de ahí'...) Por curiosidad, de uno que vive en Madrid...
  7. Dear Phil:

    Sorry for disturb you.

    I send to you this private communication because of the nature of the subject and because it seems that I think that 'you are the boss' in this field.

    I would like to ask you if you know that someone worked in a (may be a false news, I don't know) in a possible 'security breach' in osCom (dated 20 April) ?

    Please see here, in the 'Harald Ponce de Leon's file':


    As Harald seems to be absent from 14 Feb.... :wacko:

      WTF!!! :wacko:

      Forgive me, you and the rest of  the "scrutinizing eyes".

      May be my mistake is not a mistake at all!!!

      (Now, I will send to you, in a private msg, the race predictions of next week...)

      All the best.


    3. MrPhil


      My race predictions: a black man moving into his new apartment will be arrested on suspicion of burglary. Two Native American students on a college tour will be arrested for not being in their place. A black Yale student will be arrested napping in the common area of her dorm. :( Oh, you wanted next week's! That was last week's.

    How to develop a mobile multilevel slide menu

    .... and you modded your web with foundation, bootstrap 3, bootstrap 4, W3.CSS, material design ? If you used bootsrap 3, please see this link (or google it) : If you did all the changes from <tables> to <divs> this should be trivial for you!!

    Addon installer concept

    Yes, I saw these scripts and also I think that they should be a good starting point. All these functions packed in a generic class plus another zip class that handles read/copy, etc may do the work. (Guau! How easy is make code whitout write it!) In the other hand, I'm a 2.3 hooligan, so in the next osC football match competition I like play with the 2.3 team, with the number 4...

    Addon installer concept

    May be I'm wrong but I think almost the 60% osC installations are 2.2. Why they can't update? We all know why, right? 30% 2.3, why? Some new shops with a version with an ongoing increase of goods contributions that does the life easy. The effors that some of you for adapt from 2.2 a lot of contributions confirm my suspects. 5% with 3.0 -> only for intrepid people 5% with 2.4 -> only for intrepid people. Good coding but with very few contributions, I think. IF in 2.4 is easy to add contributions, don need this code/contribution, but 2.3 needs it as wordpress need it or magento needs it, or open cart, etc. A scrip that does a backup to your database is essential. A script that install contributions and help you to keep them updated in a easy way is also essential.... of course in the osC version that I needs... Shopowners want to sell products and don't think in php to much. We like to open our IDE, run our local server or our beyond compare to spend a single evening find why 'this' or 'that' code don't work...

    Addon installer concept

    Estimado Piernas: Happy with your proposal!!! How we can help you? It needs to be into core? nooooooooo if it does the life easy to shopowners they simply use it (as they use others contrib). Here, as ALWAYS, we need find a place where find the instructions to make the zip an the extra files to 'order' the installation. My point of view: A contribution needs to add new files and EDIT old (core or not) files, so: * zip file with all the files needed from a /catalog/ dir. * in the root (not in catalog) a .php file that does the install. why not installer.php? You put it the list of 'steeps' for make the installer: -check ver, files permisions, existence of files, etc but also the hooks for add/edit the new code. In a second step, 'We' need study the way to make a log of the orders that 'installer.php' did, may be using a variation of 'Contribution Tracker'. In a future these orders may be executed in reverse to 'unninstall' the addom. I suggest you that you see here: https://apps.oscommerce.com/JWbl5&core-code-of-the-autoinstaller-script https://apps.oscommerce.com/Profile&247516-pektsekye They do almost the 75% of the needes you listed. The only drawback is that the 'list of steps' is written BY HAND in a xml file. If you make a class or a sort of functions that can translate a list of human readable actions (located in an array, for example) to a xml file you will do it! Whe array has 'verbs' that trigger a kind of functions like that: $instrucctions_array = array ( 'action' => 'insertCode', // <-- this verb will trigger the actions listed below 'file' => '/admin/customers.php', 'line' => 56, 'beforWhere' => '<div class="located place">, 'codeToBeInserted' => '<p>A buen precio va el tomate</p>' ) tep_insert_in_cofiguration_table ( $paramName, array $arrayOfBeautifullParams) if needed... tep_insert_in_configuration_table ( $paramName, array $arrayOfBeautifullParams) if needed... tep_insert_in_file_this_code tep_uncomment_in_file_this_code tep_add_in_file_this_hook tep_edit_language_file_with tep_write_in_log_when_installation_is_sucessfull Another suggestion: STOP adding in classes params that almost never are used. Where need we to know the value of MY_N_MODULE_VERSION_NUMBER ? In the modules.php page? If not the infinite number of define()'s will be as crazy as useless, I think) https://generatewp.com/plugin-readme/?clone=test-plugin-readme-txt-file
  12. Very good entry! My sort reply is 'easy'. ...the long one: Watching the others alternatives of osCom that are the winners... https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=today 5-y&q=oscommerce,magento,prestashop,shopify,%2Fm%2F0xpxtgc - Easy installation of contributions / languages / templates. The customer upload a zip file and install it. May be the code used for update the core flies used in 2.4 may be a starting point. Also is needed to decouple core files for 'new files/folders' from app's / contributions. Isolate the core from contributions, isolate the application core from representation (templates). No more search in the branches of directories of directories of directories from our lovely osC for add/edit/delete apps, contributions, languages files or templates files, the ussual issue when someone try to install a new contribution. - Easy installation, creation of templates and avoid coupling/dependency from a framework (bootstrap, jquery). Avoid insert html classes into code that works only in bootstrap. No more js into php, no more css into php, no more echo "<div class="btn"..." or class="col-", etc. If not we can't update to bootstrap 4 easily (right, Gary?) or foundation or material desing or even try to add classes to a new template unless you search into classes or may be a page file or may be an configuration param... - Options/attributes: Need to rethinking how handle grouped options (a T-shirt red XL, printed in back/front), add EAN, weight, dimensions - Admin: Some efforts to make a responsive admin are not fully public (even unkown) for a lot of customers. It's a good news that this will be solved according the 'official roadmap'. Tables that can be sorted (customers, categories), ajax (?), a page for install contributions, etc. - How to handle modules: I think that the recent 'ultra' modularisation of page-components into 'modules' is good but I think someone must start thinking the best way to handle 250 modules in a easy way. The 'modules.php' must be redesigned, Piernas is doing a good try but I think that is only the first steep of a needed complete remodelation of this file. Seeing the admin side of wordpress may help us to thinking in make 'bulk changes' in params instead one by one. - A easy way to update database from previous versios to 2.3: Need for an 'official' script to make an automatic update from previous versions. A recurring issue for a lot of shopowners that would like to try. Yes, I know, there are a sql script, or is easy if you know that mysqladmin exist but is not the regular for a shopowner. The current oscommerce have some scripts that do something with the database but NOT an update from previous versions. If they are in core and they are almost usseless (may be someone uses it ONE time in their entire life) why not add another script of the same nature? - Try to make parallel programing to avoid drastic disruptions from versions: I think is time to learn something from the past. Why 2.4 or 3.0 are a fault versions? Good coding (may be a little cryptic) with new programming paradigms but nobody's use it because the lack of contributions (well, frankl uses it, I know ). I think that 'sometimes' the official osCom development is good for learn PHP but core-developpers don't care if people will use the new or not. You can develop/code as you can/want but is good to see that the others are doing to try to keep customers/coders close. For example the 'new' feature for updating core versions (2.4) must be implemented in 2.3. ... and another NON related comments: - When 2.34 edge will be into the official download page? To much good work hidden in oscure forums links supplied for users... The 99% of people don't use this web as us (searching in every corner for news) but they need a easy way to be informed. - When a (decent) wiki where developers can read how to code, which functions classes exist (to avoid reinvent the reel) ,how name functions, conventions about dir namming, class naming, etc. etc.? - When a (decent) language area where people can contribute to update/edit/download languages apart the english? - When a decent app's area where you can check if a app/contribution is good for you, the osC verssion that can support, the rating by ussers, link for forum, link for bug / suggestions? Why I CAN'T search for UPS or API or CSS?!?!? (please!!!!! decrease the minimun search characters for make the search in the app area)
  13. May be a seller wants something like that: http://devheart.org/examples/jquery-customizable-layout-using-drag-and-drop/3-implementation-in-a-real-design/index.html even a 'simplified' version of: http://neokoenig.github.io/jQuery-gridmanager/demo/simple.html No more numbers, % or know if bootstrap has 12 or 14 colums. I think. I think that prestashop does somethink like that (a 'live editor' for the front page). A 'live previev' (in products_info or even index - including columns) will be 'the paradise' of all (including coders) :thumbsup:
