osCommerce for WordPress : WP-osCommerce

Recommended Posts

WP-osCommerce allows you to integrate osCommerce into an existing Wordpress website. No need to change the look and feel of your WordPress website. WP.osC integrates transparently into the existing WordPress website and matches your WordPress theme exactly.

 

In other words, the main aim of WP-osCommerce (WP.osC) project is to allow osCommerce to use the WordPress Theme system.

 

The first release candidate of WP-osCommerce is planned for January 2009.

I have just visited your site, and I think the layout and design of this is absolutely incredible. Do I really have to wait a few more weeks before I can dive into this? I would love to start integrating my site right away!

Thanks ... sorry but you’ll have to wait until next week. I work actually on "admin panel", so each category or subcategory will contain several products and/or several articles.

Hi.! Nice idea and hopefully brilliant :) considering I use both osc and wp and I like them both.

 

But my question is... can you install to wp.osc the contribution provided here? And if you can, are they easily implemented in the whole... thing? I mean everything, from Ultra pics to more boxes and so on...

Or is it just the basic osc and that's all?

 

Any way, congratulations, good job! A combination between osc and wp should be great for search engines if you know what to do with it :))

Hi Roxana :) Thanks.

 

Please excuse my very delayed response. I didn't see your message until just now.

 

You can use all payment modules with WP.osC . For other contributions you will need to make some changes. (very easy if you are familiar with PHP and osCommerce).

If you have already installed oscommerce (original version) and wordpress you can also use a wordpress plugin (developped by me) to display on your WordPress blog's post/page/widget:

 

- New products

- Random products

- Top 10 Best Sellers

I have to ask you a few questions about WP-osCommerce.

 

Is it capable to use the same Wordpress theme as a blog you specify?

 

I tried to do this for wposc.sndeco.ro and sndeco.ro/blog and I didn't managed. I've installed WP OSC the exact way you've described on your web site and still no luck.

 

I've edited wposc-configure.php with the database connection informations collected from wp-config.php and selected SYMBIOSIS mode. it shows me a blank page.

 

If I select STANDARD mode and another theme than the default one (crafty for example) it shows me this error.

 

Any ideas how I can solve this problem?

Is there any way to add your sidebar from Wordpress into the Wp.Osc sidebar. Or if you can't where can you modify what appears in the sidebar? I do not want Languages and Currency to appear in the menu and want to link to pages in the Wordpress Blog.

 

Thanks

Traci

Hi sndeco,

As described in " Theme Development" section you need to adapt your wordpress theme to WP.osC, using a set of functions.

You may need to read the followings docs:

 

- Theme Development

- Function Reference

 

Hi tjoppru,

- you have a set of functions in includes/functions/wp_database.php allowing you to access WP database.

- you can exclude languages and currency in sidebar (or everywhere you want).

Example :

osc_list_user_pages ('title_li=<h2>'._c(STORE_NAME).'</h2>&exclude=5,6');

will exclude languages and currency.

Hi klaconcepcion,

 

You have 2 ways to use WP.osC :

 

1) in association with a wordpress blog (symbiosis mode) : in this case every time you change your WP theme, your WP.osC theme is automatically updated.

 

2) without wordpress (standalone mode) in this case you need to activate a theme by editing include/wposc-configure.php and changing :

 

define('ACTIVE_THEME', 'default');

 

in both cases you need to adapt a theme to WP.osC before using it. (contact me via WP.osC site if you have really problems with this)

 

Docs:

WP.osC > How to > Switch to Standalone Mode

WP.osC > How to > Switch to Symbiosis Mode

Hi klaconcepcion,

You can have one or two databases.

WP.osC uses a template system , all template files are located in "themes" directory. According to your theme you may have one or several columns (sidebar.php, ...) .

When I try to checkout with Paypal Website Payments Standard I get a blank page when it gets to checkout_confirmation.php. If I upload the OScommerce file it works but does not carry through the wposc theme and is missing the button to process. Is there something wrong with this file or is it the module? I have not modified either file.

 

 

Sorry I fixed the problem. It was an error caused by trying to install a Gift Voucher Module earlier.

Just so I'm clear, it's going to take more than uploading the themes I use in WP to the WPOSC themes directory. I'm going to need to modify those files?

Are there any recent discussion on this topic? I'm looking for instructions on how to make a wordpress theme become a os-commerce theme. I have a wordpress site already, would like to integrate os-commerce into a page on the site. Any help or points in the right direction would be awesome. I have a deadline coming up quick. :) Thanx
