    FYI, thought this would be of interest.

    Google have similar tools to show percentage of mobile use. If someone uses Analytics and is not using a mobile version they should look to see what numbers are viewing their site using a smaller device. It surprised me when I initially looked. Knowing your desired customer base also helps.

    is osCommerce safe to use?

    The Phoenix version is the latest community version. It is available for download from the main oscommerce downloads page of from various peoples signature links.

    is osCommerce safe to use?

    I would only use the Phoenix version. Other versions are no longer being developed or maintained or are really old and could be insecure. As far as I am aware there are no vulnerabilities with the Phoenix version.
  5. Not too sure language errors are essential and a priority as most store owners would need to change these anyway. I went through nearly every language file and altered something just to make the site different to many others. Saying that they ought to be right.
  6. Isnt there a cards module already in the footer or was that something I added to my site.

    What to do with .com and .co.uk

    Cheers @Jack_mcs. What you have said makes sense about the names boing similar so a simple redirect may be the way to go.
  8. As many will already know I have a .com oscommerce site up and running. I now been able to buy the .co.uk. What should I do with the .co.uk. Some have suggested just having a redirect to the .com which seems a bit of a waste, whilst others have suggested having a fixed page website with things like information pages and practical advice rather than have all the links on the oscommerce site. Sort of turn it into a blog type site if that makes any sense with links to the old site. What would be best for the business and the website whilst also considering SEO. I may even use it for testing a copy of Phoenix for now.
  9. Totally off topic I know but there is nothing stopping you, or anyone else, creating a package that makes changes to the core code to comply with country specific legal requirements. If everything was kept country specific it would make loading them and updating them easy as each countries requirements changed. A package that would alter things like address layouts, tax values, date and time formats, and all sorts of other changes would be a start to making the code international.

    Royal Mail shipping module

    Thats the addon that I use for my RM shipping. I do only send out either large letters or small parcels up to 2kg so it was easy to adjust the price brackets to suit my site. There is no parcel size option as used by RM now but it can be made to work. I have set the site to show different options depending on total cost of the order as RM compensation is so low now, (over a certain cost only signed for shows) but again have no problems. Customers love that it is easy to use and selects to what is available depending of weight and order value. Any orders over 2kg use a courier module that was in the earlier version of this addon, but for some reason was removed. Just get the files from an earlier version. Its just a shame that there is no third zone for international postage which is something that I may look into creating. Updating prices is easy once you get the hang of the way they are listed.

    Marketplace Category/Version Cleanup

    But would you use it if it was released as official or for your sake of your pride would you still not use it.

    Expired Product Not Removed

    You may struggle getting people to test this as it includes many core code changes, which many people do not like doing now. If you could figure out a way of building this as a quick install module, then you may get support.
  13. Starting at the beginning. Did the customer actually pay for both orders. If so did they get a PayPal confirmation email and can you see the payment received in your PayPal account. If the payment was successfully was an order number/invoice created in the PayPal payment area. If there was is this invoice number missing form your oscommerce sales area. Does the customers cart empty or are the items still in there. As a second order has been placed this may be hard to find out, but the customer could tell you about the items when they created the second order. The next bit is about the module you are using in oscommerce. Are you using the PayPal App or one of the older payment methods. I expect that the customer was not returned to the correct page on your site. They may have just left the payment page as they thought they had finished.
  14. I think we will have to wait and see what happens in the near future. I think we could all agree that it cant be any worse than what is currently officially available.
  15. Have to agree with @Dan Cole that any errors should be sorted out before anything is released as official otherwise there will be complaints that something is not right and should have been sorted out first. Saying that as Frozen was once Edge someone may have mentioned these errors before so there has been time to get them corrected.
