    How can i automate a SQL update query?

    This is the way to go. If something needs to happen every time an order is placed...why not do it as (eg) a checkout_success mod. EDIT: I have just noticed that the OP is a spammer. I have removed the hidden spam link, booted from the community - will leave the thread up as it's actually an interesting question.
  4. You might like to speak with Rezoyen who, it appears...sits right next to you... <cough>spammer alert</cough>
  5. It's as Matt explains. show/explain a use case does it make future core things easier is it adoptable by 90% of shopowners Feel free to send a PR @ github . To respond to your question; so far as I recall there never has been a hook call in admin/includes/application_top.php - did you add this yourself for your own shop?

    As far as I know, no Danes have yet made an updated translation pack for Phoenix. If you are able to do it...that would be great. It means downloading Phoenix and copying the "english" folder, renaming to "danmark" (or whatever), then translating all the english words in all the files. How the software grows is shopowners like you doing this. So far; spanish, russian, french, german - all done by shopowners.

    Here's a great example, and you can find many more across the forum. There has never been a problem with talking about other carts, so long as the discussion includes osCommerce; In that thread, there are just two hidden replies (only admins and moderators can see these) - both of these replies had external links. It's always been that way. External links (which are usually just spam) get nuked. One of those hidden replies is from dear old John (Joli), who we all remember as being one of the most active osc supporters there ever was.

    There is absolutely no problem with discussions about other carts, so long as the discussion is in the context of us here at osCommerce. For example, there would be absolutely no problem in someone asking; At the moment I am using "whatever-cart", I'm thinking about changing to osc...does osc have XYZ feature? And no problem in someone replying; It doesn't have XYZ, but if you install osc and then download this addon...you will then have something very like XYZ There is a problem in that person given advice such as; Keep using "whatever-cart" It's a matter of common sense. Does the reply that is being made "help the situation" with regards to osC gaining positivity. If yes: post it. If no: dont post it.

    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.
  17. 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).
  18. This is just a tiny step towards "no core code change - admin side"... How are we finding v1.0.3.0 in general ?
  19. 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!
  20. 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
  21. 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;
  22. 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 ?

    @Garret Krampe let's stop with the drama. I think we all understand that you made a series of sub-optimal choices, now you have to take a 30 minute step back and try to rescue the situation; how long is the timeline until you need a working site of that list you posted which are "super important must haves" and which are "want it, but not immediately" Once you have those in place, then decide which piece of software comes closest to your needs in the short term. That may or may not be a version of osCommerce. As an Aussie, I am certain you will get this as humorous; Man Up Princess
