Contributions Database

Recommended Posts

It is great we have contributions but you can spend hours wading thru them to see if there is something to match your needs and it is only going to get worse.

 

Why can't we set up contributions in an osCommerce store as downloadable products and have them properly categories and searchable?

 

also we need to separately see:

 

1. New contributions (new not updated)

2. Updated contributions (updated not new)

3. Best sellers

4. Cross sell

 

We could have the customer add products feature so people could add their own.

We could also have product extra fields and set it up so every contribution has the same descriptive format with some mandatory fields instead of relying on people to explain them properly in an intro. We would also rate how hard they are to install: simple, medium, hard, complex based on average skills.

 

We could do quite a bit actually.

 

This possible?

am I the only one that has trouble with finding things?

 

I mean you search on a word and you get matches that don't make sense.

 

The new contributions list is a mix of new and updated ones.

 

Some contributions are so flaky we should have a rating system and get them removed

 

On that note, some contributions are so old they don't even apply anymore.

 

If this was all in an osCommerce store using downloadbale products, the searching would be a whole lot better.

 

It is easier to search for contribitions using Google than actually in Contributions.

You have some good points, and you're not alone.

 

Good improvements have been made in recent months, but it is generally accepted that more improvements are desired. The team has noted previously that more improvements will be made, but for now I think we'd all prefer MS3 first. :)

I am not interested in MS3. I have a huge investment in MS2.2 which most of these contributions pertain to so does everyone else here.
