  1. Here's what I want to get done to set the Community Version to a "Final" release; 1a. Modularisation of index Title e2828ca 1b. Modularisation of index_nested Title b84136f 1c. Modularisation of index_products @BrockleyJohn to come up with ideas 2. Modularisation of product_info Started this years back. Needs some modules created. Strip Schema dfe5c47 Schema 82a5cfa Buttons d2a5dc4 63fc4ee f1a3dd9 Date Info Options Description Gallery Product Price Product Name 3. Bootstrap v4 Updating full shopside to BSv4 4. php7.2 Updating full shopside and full adminside to be 7.2 compliant. I think we are mostly there on this. 5. getContent calls and Hook calls Discussion needed What I don't have plans for, so will not happen; Everything else Why go "Final" Too many shopowners and developers wanting a fixed release; almost all feedback tells me rolling updates are not welcome. After "Final" No further changes will be made other than, occasionally; security tightening bootstrap implementation errors html errors Date for "Final" I was hoping to get it done by the end of this Month, as this month is osCommerce's 18th birthday. I can tell you that this self imposed target will not be met. As per the last four years I'll simply forge ahead as and when I can with the help of a couple of trusted lieutenants.
  2. @BrockleyJohn I think I'd prefer to get as much out of the page and into the module. This way makes it easier for other modules to interact, be built etc.
  3. I do not envisage modules on any page that is not already part or full modularised. That does not mean that the call cannot be added ready for third party bits and pieces. It's taken four years to get to where we are now. Let's get it Final and move on.
  4. Sure thing, stuff is not set in stone. I think that some of you know that pretty much whatever you want can be added/done. Other guys have no input at all, they can ask all they want and get nothing.
  5. @Dan Cole @raiwa @BrockleyJohn I don't foresee a modular shopping cart in "Final". It is still in a Branch; https://github.com/gburton/Responsive-osCommerce/commits/Shopping_Cart_Update
  6. Plan to keep it very simple. Working from the bottom of the page up and putting the data into Modules (as I did for the "also_purchased" module). Could potentially do index_products, depends on what you have and if it fits in with the rest of it.. Pre Placed Hooks: probably not.
  7. Third installment of the 28d Project. I missed last year for reasons, but this year it's back. I'm running it slightly differently to previous versions, as this time there will be no option to buy each days package - that was frustratingly difficult to manage - sorry. Instead there will be a very simple "buy now" price for everything, and that will go up in price as February goes by, therefore those who can buy earlier...pay less...and those who buy later...pay more. Hit the [Follow] button in the right hand corner of this page as I shall be updating this post as the days go by. Should anyone wish to pre-buy...thank you for your consideration and support. PM me and we can arrange it. Don't know what the 28d Project is? I make code available during February (each year, usually). This is code that I have created or updated and make available for an all-in price. Had a couple of questions by PM; Edge Compatible: Yes Gold Compatible: Yes(ish), you might need to update some files to the Edge version, I will point these out in the individual "readme" for each. Certainly nothing to be worried about! PHP7 Compatible: Yes Official osCommerce Compatible: No, sorry Core Code Changes: Will be kept to an absolute minimum, you guys know I hate to change Core and I know you guys hate Core Code Changes...but sometimes, it is, unfortunately, unavoidable. Progress: I have 21 things coded and ready for finalised checking. 1 thing is being live tested by a shop. 6 or 7 things more to write; ideas would be welcomed for small to medium things Thanks for all the PMs and Feedback so far!

      Lets call cookies! I wont taste my hat.

  10. I had this out for testing on 28d package, results of testing never got back to me, so did not release :( Didn't know you had already made it @BrockleyJohn !
  11. None of my code goes into that Apps download area.
  12. ps, split the last two posts off and into this thread as this thread is the more important (and visible) thread. Hope thats OK @14steve14
  13. Hoping that [sooner rather than later], these sorts of ideas will come up for discussion and then whatever is decided needs doing...can be coded up in time for the GDPR start date.

    A weeks worth of bonuses brings to a conclusion this years 28d project. A massive THANK YOU to the shopowners who were able to see what I've been trying to do and got behind me. Help and support is available for you guys as and when you need it. For the other hundreds (1000s?!?) of shopowners and developers who felt unable or unwilling to get involved, I say this;

    Bonus #7 - Latest Orders A shop-side Box Module that displays where in the world your latest order came from. Looks cool (I think) and I believe anything like this gives comfort to potential customers, them seeing that other customers are using your shop. Admin Side As you can see, you can turn on/off the "time" function (I call it "ago") and you can turn on/off the flags. Shop Side

    Bonus #6 - Video Tab New Tab that shows one video per product. Could be an unboxing video, or whatever. If you want to be the awesomest shopowner ever...it could be a video of the Red Woman from Game of Thrones. Admin Side New Page for assigning video to product. Works only with Youtube at this moment (see Question below). Admin Side New box and links for these helper pages Shop Side New Tab showing the Video Question Is Youtube enough, or should there be other video hosting options? Created in response to @bruyndoncx great idea, thank you. Delivery: Tomorrow

    Bonus #5 - Product Redirect Message Allows shopowner to easily set up a redirect from [old] product to [new] product. Perhaps your old product is out of stock? Perhaps you just want to make shoppers realise there is a better alternative? Perhaps you are running low on stock of old product? I'm sure there are many reason how and why this could be useful to you. If a product has no redirect...the message does not show. Core Code Changes None Admin Side (new link in box) Admin Side (page for setting up redirects) Shop Side (message in product_info) Conclusion Simple way to let your customers know of a different alternative. Your Task Think of ways in which this can be extended to better suit your own needs. You, shopowner, know your demographic better than anyone else. Sending out Tomorrow.
  18. Ah I had forgotten about Gergely's thing. When using that, would you not (eventually) lose the [old] entry from the search engine listing ?
  19. Simple is good. Please check your email inbox...get back to me (by email)...
