    Does osCommerce work "out of the box"?

    I don't know Opencart in-depth, though I do know Dan (owner of opencart), we had some conversations in the past. I can tell you that it has differences opencart isn't phoenix and phoenix isn't opencart, so both of them will have things you don't want and both of them will have things missing that you do want. Phoenix only takes a minute to download and install, so best is to do that and try it. If there is then something you do want, but is missing...then ask for more advice on the best solution and I am certain that Phoenix users will give you their view. I think you already tried a test order on the demo install - how did you like it ?

    Does osCommerce work "out of the box"?

    It's gone a bit sideways, so let's try to get back on track... @waynec444 the best plan would be a quick installation of Phoenix which will give a general idea if it may be suitable for your needs. Once you have tried it, and you (will) see missing functionality that you need...post back and you will, no doubt, get some advice on what addon(s) to add. If you keep in mind that the general ethos of osCommerce (and especially Phoenix) is a lean core, allowing shopowner to do many things without having to go deep into changing core codes. Bear in mind that there are a *lot* of addons, so opinions on the "best"/"easiest" will vary.

    Possible changes, something to think about; move HT module to Hook change tpl_ file of core code rather than create new modules - the tpl_files are specifically created to allow shopowner to change them... for navbar for box That would (potentially) be three fewer things to have to install. I haven't installed it, so could not say if this is do-able or possible. You'll know better.
  6. Change its code. If it is the Supporters Hook...you can ask for support via Email (or go and grab the update from the Club).
  7. This is just a tiny step towards "no core code change - admin side"... How are we finding v1.0.3.0 in general ?
  8. Oh, and importantly...a BIG thank you to everyone who made v1.0.3.0 a possibility. For the code, for the ideas, for the screenshots, for the diagrams, for the chit-chat and for the support. Chapeau!
  9. I will make a v1.0.3.0 upgrade .zip at some time over the weekend and release as usual on the upgrade thread. In the meantime please install it as a new "test" shop and have a play, I would be particularly interested in feedback on the new admin/categories.php page
  10. OK, in the demo site...I think one line of code to add into the checkout_confirmation page and you have the same there. No big deal, no need for so much core code change. As below;
  11. Your first image is (I think) a screenshot of the Phoenix Demo ? If so, that shows a piece of code that (I think) does it, not?

    Are you certain you are using osC ? I've just found (I think) your live shop and it is using Prestashop... Are you maybe changing over to osCommerce from Prestashop ?

  16. Bear in mind that this particular count does hammer the database - which will impact on load time. I don't know by how much and would say it would vary slightly server to server, so it may be worth doing a benchmark, before and after...
  17. I'd suggest to read your own signature Are you a store owner or a programmer? If the former, support the programmers. If the latter, support the shopowners.

    Facebook Shop Module

    My advice is, always; make for your own needs if possible try to do it without core code changes this simply makes things easier in the future for upgrading also makes it easier to share with others If it was me; I'd create a spreadsheet with the ID and full name of the taxonomy - spreadsheets are easy to keep updated if google decide to change taxonomies... I'd create a dropdown box using the spreadsheet data this box would do exactly as your input box performs, just update the category_id appropriately Keep It Simple.
  19. I don't quite understand why you would need to call them individually? Can you explain more that?

    Facebook Shop

    You might want to link to some more reading (eg at facebook). I've done lots of facebook things, but I have no clue what FB still use, what they have deprecated etc. A quick summing up of my own mods shows; FB tracking FB comments (for products) FB responsible social link FB comments (for the osc blog) FB catalog (uses an XML of products) I know there's more but I gave up looking...

    Making Phoenix Invoice look a bit better

    Anyone is welcome to fork the main github repo, and send PR's when ready. So long as the changes are coded in a way that; makes sense coded to a good standard modular (if possible) I look forward to seeing more people get involved in the actual codebase at Github.
