    burt got a reaction from DivebombInc in Installation issues   
    Phoenix is the official Community Edition of osCommerce, which (in short) means that it is made by the Community and looked after by the Community - that is Shopowners, PRO developers, amateur developers and even some who do not use this software (as they know that the work we do benefits their cart) - all doing their best to make the Project thrive.
    Solomono has no input on and no connection to Phoenix. 
    I suggest you try both.  That will answer a lot of your questions.

    Try it.  If you like it use it.  They are a partner of osCommerce.
    Know that if you need support for a 3rd party offering, you are tied to them as that is not allowed on this Forum, so you have to get support by whatever mechanism they themselves provide.

    Hook advice:  make a product_info hook utilising the injectBodyEnd listener.

    burt got a reaction from cdetdi in When is /ext/.../standard_ipn used?   
    As far as I recall, it depends on one thing; whichever "signal" gets back to the shop first.
    If the customer arrives back before the IPN...
    -or-
    If the IPN arrives before the customer.

    Which version of Phoenix are you using? IIRC, this was an error introduced in 1.0.7.0, and was quickly fixed in 1.0.7.1.

    You will need to contact a good developer and get it re-coded to suit your needs. 
    If what is made is better than core, maybe you would then allow us to replace what is in core with your new version.

    burt got a reaction from hungryfrank in Problem making a.simple redirect hook for admin   
    There is no ability to perform a redirect in admin.  Good news for you is that we are in the process of adding in pre-placed hooks now.
    What you need to do is add in a callout, in admin/includes/template_top.php and test it. 
    Then let me know where you added and what you added and how you tested it...and it might become core code.
    If any of the items in bold are not provided, it definitely will not become core code.

    burt got a reaction from ArtcoInc in Full Width Admin Dashboard Module   
    That would not be possible with a core code change in old versions.  The old style page requires each module to be 50%, and this is done using a table, where the modules have no influence over the layout.  In effect, this type of coding is as old as the Ark as the "controller" is the page, not the modules.
    Modules are saying:
    Here's my Content
    Page is saying:
    Here's the slot where you are going.
    In the recent update, I recoded the page and all the modules to give the modules control over the layout.
    Modules are now saying:
    Here's my content and here's my width.  Jump.
    Page is now saying:
    Yes Sir.  How high?

    burt got a reaction from PiLLaO in SMTP with authentication on Phoenix 1.0.5.0   
    Searching for SMTP in the code base, gives this:
    INSERT INTO configuration (configuration_title, configuration_key, configuration_value, configuration_description, configuration_group_id, sort_order, set_function, date_added) VALUES ('E-Mail Transport Method', 'EMAIL_TRANSPORT', 'sendmail', 'Defines if this server uses a local connection to sendmail or uses an SMTP connection via TCP/IP. Servers running on Windows and MacOS should change this setting to SMTP.', '12', '1', 'tep_cfg_select_option(array(\'sendmail\', \'smtp\'),', now());
    We then search for EMAIL_TRANSPORT which appears to be unused.  I checked back to an ancient 2.3.4 and finds a bit in the email class function that sends.  I don't recall when it was removed, but even so, it did not do anything (in terms of sending via SMTP) anyway - all it does is format the email in a way that SMTP understands. 
    Never used SMTP, never want to.

    To those absolutely brilliant 63 supporters, you know that you guys allowed (and are allowing) Phoenix to fly high and by extension keeping osCommerce on life support.  To the others who have not yet been able or willing to start supporting...or just did not realise what it takes to run something the size of Phoenix...perhaps this post opened your eyes.
