  1. So, should I try again to get 10 shopowners interested enough to allow me to take August off and get Frozen to BSv4 completed and released? 

    Or not bother with that and just do the work as and when I have time...which means waiting for months, even into 2019.

    What's your thoughts on this matter?

      Will you open it up to all shop owners including those who try to support you whenever they can?   If so, I think, that should get you required support to make it happen.   If not, it probably won't happen quickly.

  2. That sums up my thoughts on it, perfectly.
  3. I really don't know. It should be easy, but some people just don't see it. Shopowners will need to decide which version they want to use, hunt it down and install it as it WILL be an external extra. It won't be.
  4. I imagine then that most osCommerce users are exempted as (in my opinion and understanding); barely any will have Gross > 25m usd I personally know of two (osC based) businesses that do this level of business barely any have customers > 50k Again, one of those shops (above) is near to that number Sell personal info? WTF? I am certain no ecommerce business owner stoops that low.
  5. Well, we disagree on that and as it's me making decisions and I am saying "the future is modular", it is time to stop with the ethos of "more in core". There will be *less* in core, for the reasons already mentioned. If these people are running a business they will choose the best product that fits their need and not the product that costs nothing. If they choose a different cart: good luck to them.
  6. Content module coding help

    They can be blank, as they are extended in the __construct function. Look at the first 6 lines under the class cm_footer_conditions_modal { and The 6 $this-> in the your cm_footer_conditions_modal() / __construct function.
  7. Content module coding help

    These two things let tthe script know what it is and where it should be.
  8. Content module coding help

    It would be so cool if more people would ask these sorts of questions instead of just doing what they think is right. Kudos to you. which are lines 2 and 3 ? use basename(__FILE__) to call the template, and rename the template file appropriately (see code in point 4) the first function name in a class cannot be the same name as the "parent" class name (in php 7) use __construct or put an empty function in as so; function blah() { } You are displaying here: if (in_array(basename($PHP_SELF), $pages_array)) { $oscTemplate->addContent($template, $this->group); } so you might as well load the whole thing here; if (in_array(basename($PHP_SELF), $pages_array)) { ob_start (); include('/includes/modules/content/' . $this->group . '/templates/tpl_' . basename(__FILE__)); $template = ob_get_clean(); $oscTemplate->addContent($template, $this->group); }
  9. .css is faster loading, not by much though. If you're happy with the svg/js stick with it.
  10. Sometime in the future. You'll remember I asked for help to move things forward faster...which would have meant a month of full time developing. I didn't get the help I hoped for, so things move at the pace of a very part-time developer. Maybe one of the wannabe coders will make something for you.
  11. I was testing the differences between the js and svg and css versions. Don't know why I left it on js..... good spot guys! Changing to the .css version: Pingdom https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/djjgqq/http://template.me.uk/frozen2bs4/specials.php Reduces load time to 0.488s GT Metrix https://gtmetrix.com/reports/template.me.uk/xZZMH1i8 Reduces load time to 1.0s That is blazing fast!
  12. Just for my satisfaction, I removed the call to FontAwesome. I then tested the page again; Pingdom: https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/bFNGAJ/http://template.me.uk/frozen2bs4/specials.php Requests down from 14 to 13 Loaded time reduces from 0.674s to 0.582s GT Metrix: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/template.me.uk/HDTZvPTi Pagespeed stays at A 100 Y Slow moves from A 98 to A 99 Loaded Time reduces from 2.0s to 1.5s Page Size down from 396kb to 119kb Requests down from 15 to 14 Conclusion Shave milliseconds off the page load time. Worth doing? Maybe for some shopowners, but not for core.
  13. I'm 100% sure that things will be removed from Core, in order to make it; easier for "Team" (hahaha) to support easier for coders to code new stuff easier for shopowners to have a choice of what they want I can't imagine any scenario where osCommerce gets more things added. As for GDPR things: There is already a very good GDPR system available for these (as you put them) "business people who don't want to be computer wizards" .
  14. Made one for next iteration of CE (bootstrap 4 version). You'll be able to backport it when I release it.
