    acidvertigo reacted to osCommerce-Official in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)   
    Many users of this forum asked if osCommerce v4 will be free. And in this post, besides explaining how on-site SEO will work, we have yet again emphasised that osCommerce v4 will be free and open source.

    acidvertigo reacted to osCommerce-Official in Multiple Design Templates and built in Designer   
    osCommerce v4 is coming with support for Multiple Design Templates and built in Template Builder. 
    Template management doesn't require any PHP coding, and is done via the back end of the website. 
    It is possible to create, import, and export multiple design templates. This opens ways for professional designers and developers to offer their osCommerce templates for sale in the future App Marketplace - announcements to follow.
    Design templates are managed and modified via the back end of osCommerce, using a special built in Designer.
    It is possible to edit template settings in several ways (visual editor and CSS editor).
    It is possible to add, move, and delete various widgets from any page of the osCommerce website. 
    Additionally, all documents (invoices, packing slips, emails) can be edited if required.
    It is also possible to create copies of the existing pages. For example, there can be 2 or more product pages, and different products can be assigned different designs of the product page.
    Support for Responsive design is implemented, as well as an additional optional Mobile view for each template.
    The system allows both professional designers and end users (i.e. shop owners) change the look and feel of the osCommerce online store without going deep into the code or even without HTML knowledge. Of course designers and developers are able to modify widgets or create new widgets to extend functionality of osCommerce v4
    Have any comments or questions? - please feel free to post them here.

    acidvertigo reacted to Hotclutch in App Store or Add-on Store or...?   
    Add-On or Plug-In. There are other free and opensource projects that use these names for extensions so i would call them that. Also "contribution" would be a fine description for the free extensions like in the past.

    Hello osCommerce users.
    AAS is now "GitHubed". You can find the project here! You are free to report any issues e.t.c.
    Plus I give you for free an AAS module "Products Attributes". You can get it http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/9135
    With that module you can easily submit and manage any product's attribute through an easy menu. Search for the product, and jump directly to the innovative Attribute Manager Screen.

    acidvertigo reacted to Harald Ponce de Leon in Looking For Testers: New PayPal App   
    Here's what happens when the App is opened the first time on the Administration Tool -> it migrates the configuration parameters of the older bundled PayPal modules to the new App configuration. Although the modules are now configured through the App, the sorting of the modules are still performed on the Admin -> Modules -> Payment page for consistency with other modules that are installed.
    The new On-Boarding feature is a first for a self-hosted solution. PayPal have given us permission to include this in the App. This allows us to forward you to a PayPal account creation page on PayPal's servers and to retrieve your API credentials for you. This also works with existing accounts as PayPal will detect this and request you to log into your account.
    The privacy page documents what is happening behind the scenes.
    Feel free to test with as many new or existing sandbox accounts :)

    acidvertigo reacted to Harald Ponce de Leon in Looking For Testers: New PayPal App   
    Hi All..
    The PayPal modules will soon receive a big update by bundling all of the modules into an "App" and also prepares backend changes that extend the functionality of the Administration Tool.
    The App will first spend a short period being tested before the first official production-ready release is published. If you would like to help test the App, please be sure to do so on a test or backup installation first.
    In addition to updated modules, some new features of the App include:
    *) Order Management: Full and Partial Captures + Full and Partial Refunds (a replacement for admin/orders.php is required for OSCOM versions up to v2.3.4)
    *) Transaction Logging: All parameters sent to PayPal and received from PayPal are logged.
    *) On-Boarding: Allow the App to retrieve your PayPal API Credentials for new and existing Live/Sandbox accounts (currently only available for US/UK configured stores)
    *) Online Updates: Update notifications and one-click updates (requires minimum PHP 5.2 and Zip)
    *) Automatically migrates and configures older PayPal modules
    Online updates will be pushed out during the testing phase to help test the online update functionality.
    The App is striving to be as backward compatible as possible to our earlier releases. A replacement admin/orders.php file is available for OSCOM v2.2rc2a to v2.3.4.
    If you would like to help out and have a test OSCOM installation to test on, please read the known issues below and the README.md file in the download package (README.md is a normal text file) which describes manual code changes that must be applied.
    The following url will download the latest version of the App:
    The following url will download v4.000 of the App (to test out online updates):
    Please post your experiences and feedback in this topic.

    * Payflow missing from PayPal Payments Pro (Hosted Solution)
    * The result of Admin Order transactions should be improved added to v4.039 (09-Dec)

    i upgraded the sqlite cache system to sqlite3. From my tests it works also on php 5.4.
    Here the changes:
    On ultimate_seo_urls/cache_system/sqlite.php

    protected static function createDatabase() { if ( !is_readable( self::$sqlite_db_file ) ) { self::$db = new SQLiteDatabase( self::$sqlite_db_file, 0666, $error ) or trigger_error( 'Failed: ' . $error, E_USER_WARNING ); self::createTables(); } else { self::$db = new SQLiteDatabase( self::$sqlite_db_file, 0666, $error ) or trigger_error( 'Failed: ' . $error, E_USER_WARNING ); } }
    change to:

    protected static function createDatabase() { if ( !is_readable( self::$sqlite_db_file ) ) { self::$db = new SQLite3( self::$sqlite_db_file, 0666, $error ) or trigger_error( 'Failed: ' . $error, E_USER_WARNING ); self::createTables(); } else { self::$db = new SQLite3( self::$sqlite_db_file, 0666, $error ) or trigger_error( 'Failed: ' . $error, E_USER_WARNING ); } }
    and around line 128 find:

    $replacements = array( sqlite_escape_string( self::$cache_name ), sqlite_escape_string( $rawdata ), date( "Y-m-d H:i:s" ) ); $query = str_replace( $targets, $replacements, $this->insert_query ); self::$db->query( $query ); }
    change to:

    around line 168 find:

    self::$db->query( 'DELETE FROM usu_cache' ); self::$db->query( 'VACUUM usu_cache' );
    change to:

    self::$db->exec( 'DELETE FROM usu_cache' ); self::$db->exec( 'VACUUM usu_cache' );
    at the end find:

    self::$db->query( $create_query ); } } // end class
    change to:

    self::$db->exec( $create_query ); } } // end class
    and on ultimate_seo_urls/main/usu5.php
    find on line 308:

    $row = $result->fetch();
    Change to:

    $row = $result->fetchArray();
    Hope it can help
