  1. I would not use that version. Go to https://www.oscommerce.com/Products and download the Phoenix version that is available and use that. The version you have has not been updated in years and is not recommended. Phoenix is modular and its so much easier to add features.

    PayPal 5.018

    Are you sure there is an update after v5.018 as my phoenix store is showing as using that version. I do know in one of the Phoenix version updates some files were updated which can be uploaded over the original files, but I am sure there was no full update available.

    Product Listing Grid Distorts Images

    Removing one of the dimensions should make the image better as only one dimension is being forced to resize. I would make all the images the same size and try again.

    Product Listing Grid Distorts Images

    Make all your images the same size. Try not to force the browsers to adjust the size of the images. Generally square images work better. If you really are using 2.3.3 its really old and there is a better system available. Look in your admin area for image size settings and remove one of either the horizontal or vertical image dimensions. That will allow images to be either a fixed height to the image proportions, or a fixed width to the image proportions.

    [CONTRIBUTION] Sloppy Words Cleaner

    Rainer Bit of another silly question. Is there a way to remove any spaces in the phone number. We have customers contact us and leave a phone number on the answer machine but no names. We have search added to the telephone number module but some customers have been adding spaces in the numbers which makes searching very difficlt. Wanting no spaces for any new signed up customers as can remove older ones using sql I hope.

    New management and osCommerce v4

    I believe that phoenix and oscommerce v4 will be two totally different ecommerce platforms, and rightly so. Phoenix will be for those that liked the old oscommerce and wish to keep with the same sort of thing. If it can only get all the development done in one go, and then let coders create additional code that does not constantly need to be updated every few weeks it should do well. V4 deserves to be new and totally separate, its just a shame that it has to be born off the remains of what was once a great piece of software. V4 will have more challenges ahead as it has a bad reputation to overcome just by using the name oscommerce. The owners must know what they are doing in getting ride of one lot of code, and one lot of users, completely and replacing it with something that is not even compatible. Brave people.

    App Store or Add-on Store or...?

    I always think of apps as complete working programs that are made to be standalone and do a job. Addons is exactly as it says, something that is added to something else hopefully to improve it. Addons for me
  8. Sound interesting. What product is it as I may be interested as OScommerce is now under new ownership?

    Batch Printing without Frames or PDF

    There is a supporters code available for batch printing things like invoices and packing slips. You will need to negotiate with Gary @burt for this. It is well with the costs as it saves so much time.
  10. Do your homework. Their website does mention what is available in the package.
  11. Just be aware that this is a commercial product and will cost loads of money to get the features that you want.

    osCommerce 2.3.4-1 EDGE

    Ok so what is missing from Phoenix that would make it work in the EU and all the countries in there? Lets discuss and see if we can improve the product that you will not use.

    osCommerce 2.3.4-1 EDGE

    So why dont you make those changes and then make them available to other users to improve their user experience. Keeping things to your self helps no one apart form yourself, but that is the latest trend within these forums I feel. My site has been customised to suit my business needs, and its taken a long time to get it to where it is today. The older versions on the site have been online for over 12 years now, and believe me there have been many changes. Many of the changes I paid for over the last few years have been used by others as they are now supporters codes and are available for the benefit of others. Thats how things improve. Any Phoenix installation can be altered to suit, so the attitude that Phoenix can only be used in certain countries is the fault of those businesses in the countries where people cannot be bothered to improve what they have. Your fault no one elses. The core coders give you the building blocks, all you have to do is to put them together to suit you, or you could just let others fund it and do it for you.

    osCommerce 2.3.4-1 EDGE

    Finally upgraded to a whole better system in November. One click installs and no core code changes makes things so much easier to work with. Only advice would be to plan out the upgrade and stick to a version, and not try to keep with the latest.

    UK VAT settings

    Dont say that. Its complicated enough as it is, or may be its because I am new to it. Last time I ran a VAT registered business was way back in the 80's so its changed a lot. Covid has a lot to answer for, either that or its my choice of businesses. I never knew selling into the model railway sector could prove so fruitful. Its all these people sat at home with nothing else to do. Still I am making the most of it whilst it lasts.
