    PHPList integration to OsCommerce

    I have a few questions about this mod that I hope someone can answer: 1) Is the information flow both ways (someone uses phpList to opt out leads to an update in Zen Cart, and when someone opts out of Zen Cart it updates phpList) 2) Is additional information available within phpList (country, name etc) 3) Is there any reduction in the phpList functionality such as bounced email recording and automatic unsubscribe etc. Thanks for your experienced comments.

    fixes to PhpBB contribution

    Hi all, To help someone contemplating the move to osCommerce and phpBB I thought I would share my 2 days of experiences. Following extensive investigations in to the use of the phpBB contribution I have chosen not to use osCommerce (phpBB integration is essential for my website). The phpBB integration works. I have it up and running and the instructions are complete. I think that installing it on a fresh copy of osCommerce helps as well as adding the Prefix for Database Tables: http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...l/search,prefix However the overhead in upgrading phpBB from version 11 (currently the version supported in the Contrib files) to future versions (currently version 18 is on the phpBB site) is too huge. I did some diffs on some of the phpBB files and it scared me! Additionally the integration is not supported well and the files are all over the place. I suggest that anyone contemplating the move to phpBB integrated with osCommerce think carefully before doing so. I think that the Zen Cart integration which is build in as standard (although does suffer from a number of minor flaws) and which leaves the phpBB code untouched - working solely by sourcing the database tables - is a better and more effective solution. If it had not been for the inability to upgrade phpBB without extensive work I might have been swayed. Cheers, Scott

    PhpBB2 2.0.15 Contribution Support

    Hi everyone, Sorry if this has been asked before but is there anyway that I can import existing phpBB users into this mod? I have about 7000 who I'd love to have (immediate) access to the store. :-) Has anyone upgraded their installation of phpBB beyond version 15 (I notice that version 18 is out)? What was your experience like: easy or hard? Did you upgrade the database with the phpBB sql files or were adjustments required? Thanks in advance, Scott

    Another question (coming thick and strong today aren't they!?): Has anyone upgraded their installation of phpBB beyond version 15 (I notice that version 18 is out)? What was your experience like: easy or hard? Did you upgrade the database with the phpBB sql files or were adjustments required? Cheers, Scott

    In the instructions that say: 3- Customize your forum at http:/.../catalog/admin/bb_default.php (OSC ADMIN-->Tools-->Configuration) What does this mean I have (tried) to navigate to the OSC ADMIN-->Tools-->Configuration but there is nothing there about phpBB (I just use the link instead as above but am I missing something?
