  1. @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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. @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
  5. 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.

  8. 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 !
  9. None of my code goes into that Apps download area.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  16. Ah I had forgotten about Gergely's thing. When using that, would you not (eventually) lose the [old] entry from the search engine listing ?
  17. Simple is good. Please check your email inbox...get back to me (by email)...
  18. My thought is, always, to try to keep things as simple as possible. Doing things that way...gets a useable "thing", but that thing because it is quite simple is usually also easy to further change. makes sense, no? Do you think the above (simple!) "redirect" idea could be useable for you ? Will send on bonus imminently.
  19. I'm still coding some bonuses, and this might be one if we can think of a way to code it "simple" but also "useable".. Caveats It's important(ish) that when a URL is in the search engines...that URL stays as it is. With that in mind 1. new admin page where you can make "redirects", eg; Blue Widget -> Purple Wodget Red Doofer -> Pink Doofus 2. content module for product_info, this grabs the redirect and outputs a message "discontinued but we recommend..." So, if they end up on the "Blue Widget" page, they see; <div class="alert alert-danger"> <p class="lead">This product is discontinued...</p> <p>We recommend our <a href="abc.com/product_info.php?products_id=123">Purple Wodget</a> instead...</p> </div> That is workable and simple... And, no core code changes...
