    Smoky Barnable reacted to Jack_mcs in Jssor Slider   
    A new version has been uploaded with these changes:
    Added code to delay javascript to make it compatible with Phoenix. Changed code to be compatible with the new advert system (Phoenix only). Changed code to allow text to be shown on the banners. Moved the jssor images to the correct location to match the code.

    Thanks a lot for answering Jack.
    I know these guys won't give an answer. They have such a principle.
    Harald's updates required a lot of work, but were very simple. Updating in connection with the transition to the SSL was also not very difficult. Updates related to changes in the PHP version were also not very difficult. Most of the users did all these updates themselves.
    Order from professional coders. It is possible, but if you need 1-2 modules. When you need to update an old, large, multifunctional store in which there are many modules, everyone refuses such work. I made applications to almost all the leading coders of OsCommers, but everyone refused my order. I have kept the applications and answers to them in my archive. The main answer is "sorry, I have a lot of work and I don't have time to deal with your store ..."
    The problem is big.
    Today's concept - a stable breaking of the kernel code once a month, creates additional problems. Which coder would dare to adapt an existing store for a phoenix? What guarantees can the encoder give to the customer?
    Nothing wrong. Life is a difficult and difficult path. We will go forward, even if there are artificial obstacles on the way.

    Any serious shop owner should really just learn PHP.  It really isn't difficult and quite empowering. You should never have any fear of changing the core. Putting yourself in a position to be reliant on a developer is rather foolish in my opinion.

    Walls are OK depending what side you're on, right.  EG:  The illegal occupation of the West Bank by Zionists.
    Again, for clarity, because some people are so clouded by other issues;
    1 (repeat ONE) person was denied access to the Club
    Fewer than 5 have been removed for reasons other than activity - just being troublesome as is evidenced in this thread, or sharking for clients.
    A couple of people removed themselves, these sheep should not now be bleating that they have no access.
    Live with your choice(s), people.

    Smoky Barnable reacted to MrPhil in Would you upgrade your store to the latest Phoenix   
    I have some clients using older osC versions that I upgrade to Phoenix. I'm fine with that, except that there are a number of silly errors in the code that I need to fix at each Phoenix release, and I'd really like to see GB incorporate the following changes into (or soon after). They are in two attached files. One is 'fc' (file compare) format, which Linux tools may be be able to read, but each change should be manually examined anyway.

    Smoky Barnable reacted to Druid6900 in Would you upgrade your store to the latest Phoenix   
    Well, I'm looking (not seriously) at Phoenix.
    My store works the way I want it to, looks the way it needs to and I doubt that I'll be installing any more add-ons since my current store has a minimal amount of them.
    Now, if I migrate to Phoenix and some of the add-ons don't work, like, for instance, Canada Post REST with dimensions shipping module, then what do I do?
    Since the module was abandoned by the original author, GreaseMonkey and I have, pretty much, been keeping it going.
    If any of the other add-ons don't or can't work in Phoenix, then I have a net loss and have, really, gained nothing.
    I started back when MS2.2 first came out and there was always a way to upgrade to a higher version of OsC, whether it was a database upgrade script (hell, I'd settle for some detailed instructions) or someone who uses a given module and made the leap (and was programmer enough to modify and release it into the wild).
    Phoenix has none of that. "You can do it too" isn't helpful at all.
    The add-ons I have, I need, or I wouldn't have them, so why would I want to move to an environment where I wouldn't have them and why would I want to re-install them all (if possible) if I already have an environment where they ARE installed and they DO work? 
    I've never been the type to require the "latest and greatest" merely because it's the "latest and greatest". If I have to give up things to use "the future", then, again, it's a net loss.
    As long as I can migrate to a version of PHP that keeps me ahead of ones that have been discontinued, then I'm fine.
    This isn't a hobby or part-time thing for me, I run my full-time business on the version I have (2.3.4 BS Gold) and I see no compelling argument put forward to move to Phoenix. It's just too much trouble for too little gain.

    I started using osC over 18 years ago, paid a deloper to set up the sites and he did a wonderful job and I was very happy with results. He based the sites on 2.2a which at the time was the current version. Over the 15-16 years they ran all he ever did was a couple of security patches. He never once insisted i change to a newer version and as I had no problems with the sites I never did.
    I only took the desision to move to edge a few years ago based on some poor advice from an old host. They insisted PHP5.6 would no longer be available. Moved to new host with edge and new host says you can use 5.6 as long as you like, it's up to you.
    All sites now on Edge with BS3 and they will be staying on this as they are running fine are stabel and have been modified to give me all the functonality I had in my 2.2a sites.
    Will i change again? not sure maybe if and when V3.O comes out but no rush.

    Oscommerce has served me well for a long time, and I'm very grateful, but I don't feel able to do any programming or maintenance anymore.  I just want to concentrate on my business and a ready made shop, with a monthly fee, and SSl, payment processors already set up, is ideal for me now.

    Its not just the oscommerce.  Its all the peripheral stuff.  My website went off-line today, because error logs got to big they consumed all the memory and that was that.  I didn't know whey it had happened and the host deleted the logs, so all is well - until next time.  it just seems endless checking, and messing, and I'm doing nothing but work.  The shop and hosting are all one, so if my website stopped working, I'd hope that firing off an email to someone would suffice - which I could do from anywhere without needing to sit at the computer for hours.

    Smoky Barnable reacted to ecartz in When is /ext/.../standard_ipn used?   
    Just to highlight something that others have noted in passing but may not have stated explicitly enough.  If you want to test the IPN path, then don't go back to your site after making the payment.  Because if you just click quickly through everything, chances are that you get back to the site before PayPal sends the IPN.  So act like a customer.  When you get to the screen that says something like "Click here to return to the merchant", close the browser window.  Then your test will work like their order.  Because some customers do exactly that. 
    Note that both the IPN and the click through flow use the paypal_standard file.  The IPN file also has some logic of its own.  This contrasts to the logic triggered from the checkout_process file.

    You will see some of the items above have a red star (*).  This is IMPORTANT new functionality.
    All of the above has been done to modernise osCommerce and allow addon makers to make addons that change no (or very little) core code.
    By doing this, shopowners have a much easier life.  If shopowners have a much easier life, developers have a much a easier life.  You can see the circle joining.
    So, I refute your claim that Matt and I (and others) have wasted our time and effort.  I refute your claim that the above is useless.
    While the above was happening over the months, we gained 63 supporters from July until now.  1 supporter pays for 1 hour of coding time.  Do you believe that all of the above has been done in 63 hours?  I know that I have put in hundreds of unpaid hours since July, and I suspect Matt is the same.  The same goes for raiwa and brockleyjohn - unpaid hours devoted to their addons, yet able to find time to help out giving hours to core code.
    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.
    I'll end with two images;

    which shows that Matt and I, between us, have about 1650 contributions in 18 months.  That number excludes;
    all the time and effort spent answer questions and giving support here at the forum and by email. all the spam busting we have to do all the times we have to read abuse and idiotic comments by PM, email, and in this forum all the other modules that we give away for free and the support that this takes and most importantly, our actual real life jobs that we have Maybe this post has opened a few eyes as to the reality of the situation we find ourselves in???
    You can either continue on as you are and end up not being a part of anything, or you can change the path you are walking on and support Matt and myself over the coming months and years.  Open your eyes, and start thinking outside your little bubble.

    Unfortunately, Burt, you are doing a bang-up job of doing that all by yourself.
    I would have been willing to donate both time and money to your project, but because I've been preoccupied lately with a moving into a new house and getting everything reorganized, hadn't been on here much for a while. It is more than a little disingenuous of you to complain that "nobody contributes" when you have never bothered to give a link to where I might contribute or what size of contribution you wanted; instead you removed me from your private Phoenix club, even though I don't think I've ever been one of the "whiners" that you keep complaining about - until now, anyway, and I think that I have reason.
    I'm sure that now you'll claim that I'm one of your "enemies" club that you always fantasize about, but nothing could be further from the truth. I'd very much like to see this succeed, but it's obvious that I'm not wanted in your private clique.

    I was not going to post in this thread again, since I sort of chimed in with the complaints.  However, my complaint was centered around the frequency and speed of updates and my inability to keep up with a live store.   I've since come to the conclusion that as a Phoenix Club member, I'm more directly exposed to the development environment than ever before and that was what was frustrating.  Perhaps back in the day, 99% of us would never have been exposed to that and we were happy to implement major upgrades when they were announced (or not, as the case used to be).  So, I'm trying to find my place, learn along the way, and hope that I can perform the major upgrades when they occur, as in,, etc.
    However, I do not know why anyone would think "Access to the code is severely limited." Perhaps becoming a Supporter allows one access to certain code, but the fund-raising is absolutely necessary for any of it.  The basic Phoenix is still left untouched, consistently updated, and completely transparent.  Meanwhile, there are many add-ons that are universally available and some of the key Phoenix Supporters/Coders take it upon themselves to keep them updated - for free.
