    Adding new field to orders - Best Practices

    Moving to a more dynamic fields model could be a way to go, this would allow the option to create extra fields/labels in admin that would automatically be used in all the required instances.
  2. You can not edit/remove add-ons, you can only add in new packages. The old entries and files remain available for download as an archive for those who wish to checkout old versions. If there are major changes you might instead want to add it as a separate new add-on. If you have other needs and can not get hold of the site webmaster, you might try contacting one of the moderators and ask about information/assistance.

    Development of OSC 2.4

    A final version of V2 should be released, responsive with bootstrap and then that should mark the end of life for v2. (possibly with some running bug fixes and php/MySQL compatibility patches) Then all resources should rather be focused on a brand new V3, using a modern modular codebase and structure. (should ofcourse also among other have a template system)
  4. The "upcoming" OSC V2.4 have a neat auto "prefix" functionality which works just fine with hard coded table names.
  5. Opencart 2+ has an interesting system in place for core modification, its called ocmod. (and/or and extension called vqmod) In short what it does is make a copy of the core files where modifications are done according to an xml instruction file, then the copy file will be used instead of the core file. This makes adding extensions and updating the core fast and easy. Its not perfect, has restrictions and conflicts do happen, but its still an interesting way of doing things and might give some food for thought.
  6. there should be a hook command for adding stylesheets and js file links to the head section, that would be the preferred way. That would also allow for "auto" minifying and combining scripts/css.

    Dark Background Oscommerce Template

    Dark Background Oscommerce Template V1.2 What's changed in V1.2? - Misc. checkout color changes. http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8990
  8. For multi currency shops...yes
  9. My suggestion would be to make an official V 2.3.5 , where the only major change from 2.3.4 is that jquey ui is replaced by Bootstrap 3 to make it mobile responsive. This would give oscommerce responsive design in the current official stable version right now and then the development of the new 2.4 could proceed at its own pace.
  10. have a look at the sponsor shipping page for a possible USPS solution: http://www.oscommerce.com/Services&shipping
  11. I for one do applaud Burt for all the work being done, I might not agree on all decisions and choices made for the new version but its great to see something being done in advancing oscommerce into the modern area.
  12. Changing the folder where thumbnails are stores is an easy task, its just to change 1 define in the instructions. Change to for instance and then just create a folder named /thumbs/ within the /images/ directory. For those who don't want to make a new folder...they could instead change it to: or alternatively

    What do you think?

    I was more thinking about a checkbox along the lines of the "Notify Customer" and "Append Comments" , which would be independent of whatever status you set the order too.

    What do you think?

    there should be an option in admin when adding a comment if it should be "public" . If "public" it will show in the customers order history, if not its only shown in admin.
