  1. This is going to be an ongoing problem for the foreseeable future for anyone on osCommerce 2.3.4 (and earlier) and for anyone on very early versions of the Community Edition. As hosts start to enforce php7 (as it is more stable and more secure than php5, and by the way php8 is soon out), we will see more and more shopowners who have run their shop only thinking about "today" rather than also thinking (at least a little) about "tomorrow" and what would happen "tomorrow" if their site went down for a day/week while they scramble about trying to get help with an outdated version or moving to a different platform etc. The Community Edition has been available for over 6 years now - that's a lot of "tomorrow" time

    SMTP with authentication on Phoenix

    I'd suggest you have. As my ethos and concept is the very bit I have underlined in your quote which is what you say you support. As for oscmax, leave that word at the door from here on out. I gave up on that when it became apparent that disrespecting copyright was the MO of its illustrious disappearing act owner.

    That's news to me, but there we are. I've never had a `conceptual interaction` with you (that I can remember).

    how to change Phoenix 1075 CSS?

    It's unclear what the OP wants as the image shows a white background changed to grey but the text asks how to change the "btn" (which is the button class). Complicating factor that none of us should have to deal with; it's an addon causing problems OP, can you ask again and be more clear?

    Edge VS Frozen

    As Matt states, more or less the answer is Yes. Edge was nothing more than a construct - it was never released or tagged (ie it wasn't a "thing") - it was simply the latest code at a given moment in the timeline of the Project. There was far too many complaints about "Edge" from people who could not understand that Edge was simply a construct; Phoenix was born to solve that, which has versioning (1.x.y.z) so users (should) know where they are and what they are doing. For example, if you go to Github now (or to the downloads page at the osCommerce site) you can download quite easily version - it is tagged and released. If you were to go hunting at Github (and it wouldn't take much to find it), you could find the latest changes which will be in v1.0.7.8 - you could download that now (and consider it "edge"). Make sense ?
  7. v1.0.7.7 is tagged and announced;


  8. Change of attitude required.
  9. Change your attitude. Do you think that "the developers" have time to read this sort of crap? If you want it, make it or get it made, then share it. That's "open source".

    It makes no sense to add something like this to Core Code. That just means more that Matt and I have to support, and (as you know) the support for the Core Team is coming from some businesses but not enough that we can make core Phoenix a "addons" project. We prefer to change the core to enable easier implementation of addons for shopowners, but that means that good addons are harder to write, so addon makers must be supported. The concept of modularity means that addons like this are easy to install, and the support of them is nothing to do with Matt or I. Everyones a winner.

    Order breakdown in Paypal Standard

    So long as you have the Order ID (so that you can tie up Paypal payment to the Order in your shop), I don't really see the issue ?

    I would just like to state that all the help given in these forums is given by other users of "Oscommerce". "Oscommerce" is the software you use at no cost to you. So, it looks like the help you've received is commensurate to the help you have ever given.

    Moving to another platform

    Every business owner must do what is right for them. You must understand that if you are leaving osC behind, we won't help you to move to a new software. That task is; for you to DIY for you to pay to get it done (eg cart2cart transfer) for the cart you are moving to to provide the transfer tools in some way

    Shipping Shipping Help Help

    Correct. You have illustrated why osCommerce is on its knees; Businesses who appear as if by magic only when they need help/advice. I have just looked back through your posts and there is not a single one where you take the time to help anyone or give advice etc, but you are quite happy to have your business subsidised by other businesses here. If you don't give, you don't get. One hand washes the other etc. Classy. Go right ahead. Don't be surprised if that backfires on you.
