Responsive osCommerce - Bootstrap

Recommended Posts

Hi Mateusz,

 

I do not think it is time yet to publish any language packs for this release until it gets an official release, or become more stable. I think it is best to publish it here or on http://addons.oscommerce.com/for now.

Meanwhile, can you help me fix my machine translated Polish language package for 2.3.4? Can I use your human translations?

When it is corrected, it can be used by many, and it will be simpler to go from a corrected version to the next release, or the bootstrap version.

Hello @@burt,

 

Comparing gburton/Responsive-osCommerce and osCommerce/oscommerce2/ I see some some differences that can be merged in order to have a simplest diff between these projects. For example:

  • while loops to foreach
  • copyright dates on comments, for example: includes/languages/english/modules/order_total/ot_loworderfee.php 2002 to 2015
  • $HTTP_GET_VARS to $_GET do you want to mantain it because compatibility reasons?
  • you can suggest to me more

Are you interested on it? I can do it.

One thing I really don't understand is why all the $HTTP_XXX_VARS haven't been converted.  It can be done with a couple simple regex and I've been running it for a long time that way.

Another one:

  • Better loading of totals on order.php: adding "class" column to query and etc.

My time and effort is worth more than I receive in return.  

 

Hence my development effort has had to stall while I do "real work".

Hi

 

So this is a really stupid question, but I've just installed the "Edge" version of this on a test server, but for some reason I can't see the headers.

 

My site seems to start at the top of the Categories box.

 

I saw somewhere that this sort of thing can now be changed from the Admin section, but I couldn't find anywhere to change it.

 

My site:

http://test.sundance.com/shop/

 

Saying that, I'm not even 100% sure that the footer is there either...

 

Did I install it wrong? 

 

Or... ?

 

I tried googling this, but didn't find an answer.

 

I've been quite happy hacking along with the older version of OsCommerce, but we needed an update so I thought I'd start over with the responsive one.

 

Thanks.

 

Chris.

Admin - modules - content...then click on install modules in the top right eg. navigation bar.

And for future askers of the same question:  read the README.md file, paying particular attention to the "installation" part.

Thanks @@burt.

 

I don't know how I missed that.  Probably because I didn't look.

 

I feel suitably chastised now ;)

 

It does all look very different.  I'll have to have a play and get my head round it before I make a live shop.

You are not the first to miss it, and you won't be the last.  

 

Any ideas, how can I make it more prominent ?

 

I remember back in the olden days (2.2) some instructions were printed on the index page, after the basic installation.

Perhaps we could go back to that sort of idea.

 

Thoughts?

Add a new first page to the installer, with some text saying "Read the instructions first" and a link to an HTML version of the instructions. Then a button at the bottom labelled "I have read the instructions" that starts the installer.

 

Probably a good idea to come up with some more friendly text, but you get the idea.

This may seem daft, but how about chaging the wording on the "Welcome Guest" bit, or maybe add a bit to  "Welcome to Default osCommerce" on the basic default install?

These are both bits that will, or at least should, be changed when a site is developed / deployed

 

It was at this point that I noticed that I was missing something (like the headers and footers).

 

Even if it's just a link to a webpage somewhere?

 

If it helps, I can knock up a PDF that has screen grabs on how to run the whole install for both the Gold and Edge version?

Well, I did it.

 

There's a PDF here:

http://ftp2.sundance.com/Pub/temp/How%20to%20install%20oscommerce%20BS3.pdf

 

and the doc here:

http://ftp2.sundance.com/Pub/temp/How%20to%20install%20oscommerce%20BS3.doc

 

When I went through the install of the Edge version a few days ago, I'm sure that before I was asked for a name for what I wanted the Admin directory to be changed to, but when I ran though it for this documentation, I wasn't asked.

 

Is that a server setting, or something that I just imagined?

 

Also, the final page of the EDGE install doesn't mention stuff like deleting the install directory, changing the permissions of the config files etc.

 

I hope this help someone.

Nicely done Chris! :thumbsup:

Curious though, in your install manual you describe how to change the admin name/folder. Why is that?

I have installed sure more then 50 test shops by now GOLD and EDGE and I always could enter the directory name on the 3rd page where you have to enter the admin username and password and so forth.

Here an image as proof.

 

Wonder why you don't get/see that part of the installation.

This depend on folder permissions and server configuration

<?php
  if (osc_is_writable($dir_fs_document_root) && osc_is_writable($dir_fs_document_root . 'admin')) {
?>
      <div class="form-group has-feedback">
        <label for="adminDir" class="control-label col-xs-3">Administration Directory Name</label>
        <div class="col-xs-9">
          <?php echo osc_draw_input_field('CFG_ADMIN_DIRECTORY', 'admin', 'required aria-required="true" id="adminDir"'); ?>
          <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-asterisk form-control-feedback inputRequirement"></span>
          <span class="help-block">This is the directory where the administration section will be installed. You should change this for security reasons.</span>
        </div>
      </div>
<?php
  }

?>

I thought I saw that on one of the test installs I did, but couldn't see it when I came to do the guide.

 

In the end it’s possibly better to leave the guide as is, and then people will get a pleasant surprise when they find out they don't need to do that bit?

 

I'm glad to see that I wasn't going mad though.

Very Nice Chris!  But, I have a suggestion.  One is you refer to "/var/www/sites/" but for many it will be "home/username/public_html/".

Thanks for that.  I'd forgotten that this was a choice I'd made when I set up my server.  It's the little things that will get you.  I'll update the files next week.

I'll try and dig out the relevant locations for Ubuntu, Centos and Windows. 

 

Are there any more popular OS's that would have a different path?

 

Chris.

Centos and Redhat I think are always "home/username/public_html", but i'm not positive.  My windows apache is "htdocs", but i install Apache, php, and mysql separately and not part of a package like wamp. 

 

One other note is severs runing as a cgi like Mod_Suphp can run php files more securely at 600 and 400 for config.  I don't know if you want to include that or not.
