    Your BS4 version is looking good bud!

    Do you have this available in https://github.com/gburton yet?

    Are there projects / items I or others in the community can help with @burt???

    I don't expect this will be a publicly available thing; its a showcase of what the Responsive could (and should) have been had we got as far as Final.

    It will be available to some shopowners if they want it, but that will only be the handful of shopowners who are the diehard supporters of my efforts.

    Put simply; this is made to flatten my bsv4 learning curve.

  2. New progress bars are now on the Test Site.  Obviously if you wish to see them, you need to be checking out.  If you are checking you need an account, please at least use a real email address so that my server doesn't bounce back undeliverable messages at me, thanks.  I hate seeing people test stuff and using (eg) wenvjowe@venvoevn.com type of bullcrap.  

    Hooks System

    For anyone who knows a bit about the Hooks system, this has had an overhaul so that it is now possible to pass parameters through hooks;

    EG: checkout_shipping.php

        echo $OSCOM_Hooks->call('progress', 'progressBar', [Parameters]);

    And on EG checkout payment all you need to do is pass through a different Parameter, and that increases the display of the progress bar.  Henceforther shopowners/developers can have two or more pages using the same Listener...just passing thru a different Parameter.  And, even better, no limit on the what Parameters you want to pass through to your Listeners. #forward #we #go

  3. New Progress Bars for Checkout

    • Hooks system is updated to accomodate this. 
      Now all you have to do is change 1 hook file and your changes are reflected on each page that has the progress bar.





    + Points:

    1. Removes about 10 lines of .css
    2. Can now affect all pages displaying the progress bar by amending one file (eg if you wish to display something else)

    - Points:

    1. Not as pretty as the older layout?

    Always moving forward, even if steps are small.

    Did you ever check to see if this could be adopted for guests?


    I didn't.  But if one was to use my guest notifications module from 29d20 (February 20 2016)...it should not
    be difficult to recode a portion of the above to make it fit.

  5. I extended this into a full module.  Quote from a real shopowner;


    Thanks! Quickly implemented the Notifications Module. Works great ... I did not ever pay any attention to notifications at all ... Now checked the database and there are 15559 entries in the products_notifications table!!! So - 15559 customers ticked the box "Notify me" on checkout succes .... And they NEVER - EVER received a notification 😭😂 ... That's what can happen if you run a shop/business that changes into a roaler-coaster!


  6. These tester tools are all flawed but do give a helpful indications;

    Two broadly similar (info) pages:


    Two broadly similar (product list) pages:



    • New bsv4 site loads in more modules than the Old frozen site.

    Next Task:

    • rip out the full jquery build and instead use jquery slim build.
      requires some changes elsewhere to allow scripts to use slim (eg the images popup thing on product_info)

    As @Jack_mcs said, as the screen size changes, the width of the banner image changes, but not the height. As a result, the image becomes distorted.

    In addition, in the footer, as the screen size changes, some of the text in the buttons (particularly the 'Existing Customer' button) overflows the size of the button (see screen shot below).


    You can also see a scroll bar across the bottom of the screen shot, indicating that something did not fit correctly into the screen size. I see this only in the SM view.


    This is hopefully solved.

  8. Todays task is to try to make all the places where a product shows (in a list) look the same.

    I settled on this look:  


    The places where a product shows (in a list) is (linked to Frozen so that you can see the differences);

    You can see that in Edge/Frozen the lists look broadly similar.  I want them all to look exact the same in Frozen2BS4
