  2. Upgrade, or change cart?

    I hate to agree with this out loud... But I too as a shopowner have used many number of these $hitty addons.... why, despite the poor execution, the "idea" was good. And some of those same good ideas have now been turned into well coded modular addons that do now fit the current "community" modular ethos (of no core changes). The point is that yes, OsC has 7,000 addons... and many (most) of those 7,000 addon are not well coded. HOWEVER, as a shopowner there are maybe 4,000 or 5,000 GREAT ideas! This is a great resource! And the ideas that have NOT yet been rework into modular addons hopeful now will - to work with the next versions and app store. As a secondary point, almost all those same ideas have now been used, and reworked, into addons for Shopify.... See where I'm going with this? The great resource OsC has provided the ecom world, has been used against OsC to now dominate the world.... it is sad, but true.

    Plus 1 Woulda saved me 15 mins last night.
  4. As a secondary solution - which actually works a little better (if you are using any column wrap built into bootstrap) is to re-order via javascript. So, I extended the main div class for the descriptions and price templates... and then add to the price template: <div class="col-sm-<?php echo $content_width; ?> description"> <div class="col-sm-<?php echo $content_width; ?> price"> <script> var wasMobile = true; $(document).ready(function moveColumn() { if ($(window).innerWidth() < 767 && wasMobile) { $('.description').detach().insertAfter('.price'); wasMobile = true; } }) $(window).on('resize', moveColumn); moveColumn(); </script>
  5. Thank you Antonio. The description on column ordering is ridiculously undocumented on the bootstrap site. The total documentation is: ****Easily change the order of our built-in grid columns with .col-md-push-* and .col-md-pull-* modifier classes.*** I have figured it out however - the issue has nothing to do with the sort order config built in OsC - although the sort order config allows you to give a starting point. The missing part bootstrap should "re"-emphasize is: you cannot re-order columns on smaller screen - you MUST re-order for larger screens (yes I know... bootstrap is "mobile first"... and therefore should have realized my error... a quick google search however I quickly realized I'm, by far, not the only person who missed this critical part). So, use the config sort order to order your columns on smaller screens - THEN use the push/pull features to re-order your columns for larger screens. So - on xs screens: [500] with col-sm-4 col-sm-push-8 [501] with col-sm-8 col-sm-pull-4 BUT on screens sm and larger would become [501] with col-sm-8 col-sm-pull-4 [500] with col-sm-4 col-sm-push-8 Exactly what I'm looking for!
  6. Hey all, I'm looking for a tip - I had built product info content modules (previous to their inclusion in EDGE) and everything has been great. However, I'm looking for to optimize a little further and I'm stuck. Currently I have 3 modules with the following sort order: [description-500] [price-501] [image-502] And would like to re-order these based on the SM viewport to: [price-501] [description-500] [image-502] I was initially thinking I would be able to use the bootstrap columns to re-order (push and pull), however the module sort order would seem to override this? Any clue - maybe a header tag script? Or will I have to break into admin/modules.php?
  7. If there were an “app” store where you could buy, one click install mods - would this still be true? I think not.... (I know it’s been discussed... many... many times, and recently those discussions have made “some” progress) Just for a second - think about how many discount modules could be sold.... or your MailChimp addons... True, however.... if we can get to a “stable” position with the community version and an install mod feature: maybe more coders would come help? (Pipe dream... I know). You won’t get any argument from me there...
  8. Just trying to present a shop owners opinion here............ And as a shop owner, there are options when it comes to ecom platforms: Shopify - fantastic, built ready to go.... any addon you can image.... BUT you will be nickle and dimed TO DEATH - mostly by shopify and their per-transaction fees Magnito - you better no what you are doing BigCommerce - see shopify On, and on and on..... Unfortunately, the easy to use, ready to go, out of the box platforms - are essential pyramid schemes. Where you are signing up for life and pay a per-transaction fee - the more successful you are the more successful they are. And I for one, would not have been able to scale our business into multi million dollar ecom business - without an open source platform like OsC. That doesn't mean FREE.... I would be willing (and have) to pay for ANY (almost all) addons - as long as I don't have to sign up for life to a per-transaction fee. The good news - I beleive the community is going the right direction... Just remember, PROGRAMMERS (please take note), for OsC to survive it MUST present a better option than what is currently available and popular. And this means is: easy to use, ready to go, out of the box AND scale-able. To my last point - @wHiTeHaT I'm not smart enough to know if making product_listing modular would make any difference in the long run.... but as long as easy to use, ready to go, out of the box AND scale-able are there - I will be happy.
  9. Agree Agree Agree Agree Agree And yes it is loaded in addon's like featured_products - but, if made modular could featured products not also be made as a module (in place of a page)? Not to mention products_new and specials....
  10. Ok, yes technically it is a module 😉 However it is NOT “modular” - and other than the 1/2 dozen configurations there’s not much that can be done without hacking at minimum the product listing if not the core. Don’t get me wrong - it’s no deal breaker. But as a “wish” - it would be nice to have. And thinking about the dozens of addons and modifications in my store, many touch the product listing... and it would be nice to manage these - as I do (now) product info content modules. We need to start looking ahead at other carts and building upon the leaps and bounds of features they’ve “built in” in the last 10 years while OsC has watched on the side lines (I don’t mean the community.... I mean OsC “official”) the ecom world change. All the features now available in “newer” platforms are (and always have been) available for OsC... as long as you don’t mind hacking the code a little. JMHO, modularity is key to the future. Make EVERYTHING a module (ok maybe not everything).
  11. I would like to add a 5th suggestion... based on another recent thread. 5) modularize the product_listing.... The current configs are very basic and in its current form there is no way to extend the config without hacking into the core. Example: adding a qty to the the buy button, adding attributes, adding product descriptions to grid view (currently suppressed with CSS), extending the sort order... and much MUCH more.... (there are dozens of product listing addon's currently). Buy making the product listing into modules we could more easily customize without hacking core, I presume??? Thoughts?
  12. @Tsimi that is nicer than the one I shared with him..... putting the attributes right in the product listing....
  13. @cs36 I have this done but it requires a change to application_top, products_listing & product_info (unless you are using the absolute latest EDGE that I believe is now using product info content modules).... changing the core is the only way I know how to to accomplish this... and its frowned upon. I won't share it here... but feel free to PM me...
  14. Addon installer concept

  15. Addon installer concept

    Sadly, there is know one steering that (2.4) ship. I’ve (as a shopowner) abandon the idea it will ever come - my only hope lay with the community versions.
