A major add-on to you is not required for someone else and who would finance this work?

 

It is down to the developer to give clear concise instructions and to test it on a clean install. Most do this very well and most people installing them, follow the instructions to the letter. The problems occurs where the add-on does not work, the documentation is wrong, installation instructions were not followed or the add-on clashes with another already installed.

 

If you install a contribution on a modified site, bonne chance!!

Are you saying why havn't they all been tested, well they have by those that have used them, you need to research anything your going to add first, then you'll get an idea how good they are. wink.gif

 

If your suggesting someone should give there time to test all of them & report, well volanteered, you just nominated yourself a task!! biggrin.gif

Your categories issue is due to failing to follow the instructions to the letter, make sure you apply all sql commands, not just the first one!!

 

i followed the instructions to the letter
clearly you did'nt, but then everyone says that when it don't work first time!!

 

Your catergories issue will be the same problem (failed to follow exactly) perhaps How do I install a contribution http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?showtopic=343384&st=0#entry1432157 will help you.
