  1. Hmmm ... another question for you guyst ... which features will help you sell more or more profitably and will allow you to sponsor some development to get your wishlist implemented ?
  2. Horizontal Megamenu

    the sort order is missing from your configuration, probably you need to add the field into your product listing first for it to be available as sort option under mega menu.
  3. Will v2.4 still have the language directories and files in it, or will the setup/maintenance of language constants be database based. I somehow recal it having a database based design at some point ? The roadmap doesn't mention anything about this.
  4. Upgrade, or change cart?

    My deciding factor would be if there is a migration path from old osCommerce to new , being it osCommerce or to alternative cart. Granted the big changes, some re-learning would be needed either way. Then the question is , in new oscommerce or alternative cart, if you have the same freedom and easy of making changes at minimal cost.
  5. I just have a thumbbar category with an extra manufacturer filter and the first not in stock piece customized to distinguish temporarily not in stock vs completely sold out. Google hj3460 and you should find an example it in the listings (at least it is pretty high up on my google search)
  6. I'm addicted to Burts code. Whenever he puts something out in the dark winter days, I need to have it :D and I'm not even running the BS version. But since it is coded up nicely, I can also adapt it easily to my needs.
  7. Geotargeting

    I really prefer a separate country and language selection like all big brands do nowadays
  8. I wondered if there are any and it made me smile :D

      Someones got a secret webcam installed at my place!

    3. MrPhil


      I've got my laptop's webcam turned off, but just in case someone manages to bypass that and turn it on, I have it (and the microphone) covered with a piece of electrical tape! Me, paranoid? Who sent you?

      Just because you are schisofrenic doesn't mean the world is not after you to get you ! :dry:

  9. @tgely ping me again in 3 months ... overwhelmed with work (store shutdown and warehouse move, another part time job with office move, and private house move ...) no time to tinker now.
  10. I attended local seminar about GDPR by our accounting firm and their security and audit department. Basically GDPR lays out common sense for security measures to protect the privacy of personall data of your customers. Plus you need to document who the consumer can contact for personal data (verification, correction or removal) Adres information that you keep with the orders in the accounts is not sensitive data. If you start to profile and keep track of the age of their kids and stuff then you can become in the grey area of things. If you have a doctors practice with medical records that is a big difference from an ecommerce operation. So you need to do common sense to ensure data theft is not possible (securing logins, pasword policy, no usb stick backups, servers behind lock). Make sure that (paper) processes are documented and paper records are destroyed so that private and sensitive personal data can not end up in the wrong hands. Also in a bigger setting with sensitive data, staff should only have access to the (sensitive) data that they need to know. Eg the janitor should not be able to access medical records to be blunt about it ... :D I personally think it is a good effort to raise the awareness, it is just peoples reaction is over the top if they don't understand the concept of sensitive data and overall risk mitigation. Edit: big caveat, if you sell personal data then you are in trouble :D
  11. how about spelling out the where clause with numerics without the year and adding the specific year end and year begin as extra where or where statements besides the typical date ranage ? (%c and %d) not using any year reference in the where clause. Sorry, I'm still pretty busy, might have some time tonight ...
  12. Google Shopping for Clothing INTEGRATION

    a GTIN is an EAN and burt has code for that added in the responsive version if I remember well. Should not be too hard to find that piece of code and apply it to your 2.3.3 as the responsive bootstrap version has not really touched on the admin side of things.
  13. Admin to Bootstrap NO HTML changes

    I think this is an excellent compatibility fix. It modernizes the backend, allows you to integrate newer bootstrap styled pages, and gradually get rid of the old stuf - if and when time allows. I can see removing old stuff from the most frequently used pages, and not bother with the less frequently used pages and let jquery do it's magic.
  14. Clearance Price addon

    As for storewide discounts, I have a category discount setup on our shop. We are in clearance mode for the physical shop - I defined different % for the top level categories. Modified the product page to show the discounted price. Only drawback is that it is not shown on the listing, nor in the shopping cart. Not perfect, but workable till I have a products class implemented with all the pricing logic.
  15. Build a LAMP Stack for OSC

    forgot to mention, that RPI is just on the local network. It is an easy way for a unix environment where you have full control vs a cheap host.
  16. Build a LAMP Stack for OSC

    on the other hand, it is a great piece of info to show off what you can and are knowledgeable about. The kind of thing I like to do on a raspberry pi just for the fun of it :D
  17. This contribution allows you to: * List products (alphabetically) for selected category displaying the special price and implied discount * Add a % discount to all products in selected category * Add, change or remove a special price for an individual product in the selected category It is multilangual, conforming to osCommerce TABLE conventions and only makes changes in the admin. This is an easy install, just a few files to edit and load of main php and language files. It is based on the specials admin contribution (206) Demo with screenshots included in the package
  18. [Contribution] Admin Specials by Category

    I just have the specials page sorted by specials_id desc, so newly added show first ... would that work for you ?
  19. Networking databases?

    I assume you have somekind of caching going for eg configuration and other static parts of your website so you don't hit the database that often ?
  20. html5 input types

    fyi https://mobiforge.com/design-development/html5-mobile-web-forms-and-input-types this triggers the appropriate mobile keyboard
  21. html5 input types

    i did check some account file didnt see it, should have checkef better Good job @burt
  22. I have 1) an image resizer that creates resized images on the fly when the requested size does not exist. Might have been KISS I'm not 100% sure - there are different ones, but essentially you get original image123.jpg and image123-120px.jpg, image123-360px.jpg kinda thing 2) adaptive images script to generate smaller / lightweight versions where appropriate - especially usefull for HD images also taking retina displays into account http://www.adaptive-images.com/ I personally prefer the on-the-fly bit, makes it easy to make changes to image sizes without having to worry about generating all images in batch. I have been known to dump lots of images in directories, and use easypopulate to update the products_image field. A batch approach would need to be able to handle such a situation. You can not assume especially when building a new site that all images are uploaded one-by-one through an interface.
  23. Batch update orders and print invoices

    As a FYI, i have added a field to the order table to keep track if the order has been printed or not.
  24. Batch update orders and print invoices

    I currently have batchprint_noPDF with tickboxes that allows for statuschange and another update-o-matic that takes a list of order ids, status update and comment to email to every order listed. For me it is not a problem as I print the order for orderpicking first, put them in order processing status - people just get the status update. At that time I don't know yet if there is a problem or not with the order, so I rather not add any message. The list of order ids in the update-matic is the same list I use to generate the shipping labels (for belgian and dutch posl), so the email basically says, shipping with xyz soon, and give tracking instructions for the specific carrier. And for DPD I have a nice csv upload that @burt provided that takes care of the emailing too
