    Where to start for newbie

    Not at all, any advice appreciated. So far I've learned a lot here, from very post made and tips provided. I have narrowed it down to use Frozen which I understand is from 2018 the latest and some patches for it. but latest apps and templates still confuse me, which for which and where they go. Also good point from Steve about mobile friendly, but as yet I have to find a free template for that as yet. Also the problem has been resolved about blank boxes in the admin, and it was php issue, however still no best seller box on the right side pane, I assume it will appear once orders are filled?

    Thanks for that, my file looks nothing like that only half the size, also log file is not anywhere, also the php problem has been found will look at that too. MrPhil just simply used the patch utility that comes with Ubuntu, it did all the required striping and patching, it really is a good little utility. I think you right about php issue, while the version is PHP 7.0 it might have a conflict or error somewhere, this is only test and learning site and not a production site, I want to get it right before publishing it online. Once again thanks to everyone here and hope you all don't mind newbies questions.

    Installed from that site the stable one downloaded and it installed fine, then go to Admin then Modules > Boxes, I can see Install module box with 10 available, when I click that button I see no modules listed in the next page. If I remove an installed module the number of available goes up but in next page that too is no longer there, and can't be installed. Thanks

    Yes I do that, it seems something is broken either at my end or at the git as I see the modules but every time click on them I see white blank page.

    What I download does not look same as demo, lots of stuff is missing like right hand menu and styles and look and feel is different, header and footer not the same either. I use git clone and not zip file, for most up-to date of it.

    Burt is there any chance you could let me have access to Frozen 2 BS4? I can work with that and it's really looks good, pretty please. Much appreciated for all you do. The one in the demo here https://template.me.uk/frozen2bs4/index.php

    Yay it worked, I think. Download the Frozen from your sig and also patch frozen.diff file unzip and copy the diff file in to frozen dir and cd in it, apply patch with command as follows. sudo patch -p1 < ../Frozen.diff (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file advanced_search_result.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file checkout_shipping.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file create_account.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file admin/modules_content.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file includes/application_top.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file includes/template_top.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file includes/languages/english/create_account_success.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file includes/languages/english/shopping_cart.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file includes/modules/address_book_details.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file includes/modules/checkout_new_address.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file includes/modules/product_listing.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file includes/modules/payment/moneyorder.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file includes/modules/social_bookmarks/sb_facebook_like.php (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.) patching file install/oscommerce.sql ]

    @ burt Thanks and I'll have look at those, and I agree with business and costs and am not saying people shouldn't make money, I am all for it. But I am trying out an idea and not sure it will pan out and can't afford to the costs at the moment, however I know if the web design is not up-to par and if it looks as if it was stuck in 2003 it's not going to succeed. If it does work out then I'll will need to take it to next level and would be able afford coders here. I also think if something more was provided doesn't mean money can't be made, people are generous if they are successful, and if they are not then they won't be using it after a while. Thanks again, but can't Ubuntu patch program do it? I normally use that to patch diff files.

    Thanks for all that. I have narrowed down to two options, to either user the frozen or official 2.4.0 which has PayPal app, but the community one is 2.4.2 but has no Paypal. Also if I understand right bootstrap means it's files are online linked and not local? MrPhil, how do I apply that diff patch? is it applied before or after the install? Yes I did google but every time I follow instruction on any template change, I end up breaking it
  11. Hi all. I've just been reading but I don't know where to start, the more I read the more confusing it gets. I am currently testing it on my localhost ubuntu server and all is working as it should but which version to use I've tried everything from official and community supported, not being coder just can't find a decent one with good templates. Oscommerce being opensource why can't I find decent templates that are easy to install? the one I could find are too old or don't work due to my limited coding skills. Would anyone be kind enough to upload oscommerce with pre build in template that looks and feels modern and sleek? That I can install and test? Thanks and much appreciated.
