hehehehe great minds think a like.see here
Now that I know what your using. also the fact that I changed the theme. I have lots of input. lol
This was an Idea that I was thinking about. But the osCommerce 2.2-MS2 set up is a lot deferent thin GL that I just keep them apart.
Now let me first tell you that I am looking at this as a person that wants a community, homepage, or news page first and adding the osCommerce to bring in income, but don't want to change the hole GL into a store. If you was just wanting an osCommerce site. Thin why add it to GL. see my point. lol
In the files.
osCommerce comes with 2 config files. one for the store and one for the admin.
Was you able to put these in the plug in file area?
The reason is, I just fell better if there is just no way that someone can find and/or look at them and get my passes to my database.
Better yet I rather it get that info from the GL config.
Also on languages.
I don't see the box that changes the language for the osCommerce (this is a good thing) But did you get it to work and change with the user prefs?
I see that you went with English only for the site.
Also you may want to add currency type to user prefs.
Also I see that the account page is not coming up.
I foresee problems with that. one of the big problems that may get overlooked and I want to make sure it don't. That page well now have to work under a SSL Url. Because according to what pay service you use. You may have info in there like payment info.
Also working as a community.
People like to use (like me) usernames.
But when you pay you well need a real name and other info.
Now on to the Admin.
Lets say this the easiest way I can.
If you did do a full integration with the admin. Thin you deserve some praise cuz that well be a big pain in the ars.
I am just guessing here because I am not an admin on the page and can't see the setup.
But if you just added a link to the main admin of osCommerce that well be good to.
Maybe even easier to understand.
But that well still need to be kept under a pass worded area.
But if you did do a full integration. Thin that means you can specify who can get in there.
Now on to what osCommerce can do and did you get it to work for GL.
The one thing I like about the osCommerce site is (hehehehe) you can spy on people see what there doing and were they are.
Did you get that to work with GL pages also.
And on that note. You can see and edit files in your server from the admin in osCommerce. Well that now work on the GL pages?
Now to the look of the store.
Say you come to my site. I don't want the first thing you see is "well you bye this". My site is a community first.
Placement of boxes.
Can you turn off and on the "New this month"
on the front page. Say like the center box with the forums. It well need to also need to have a way to place it were you want like the forums box can.
Also a smaller limit for how many items can be shown.
Say like if I was to add it to my site.
3 rows of items on the main page of my site is just to much. It well make my main page a mile long. lol
Also the other boxes that I am sure a lot of people well want an option to add to there main page, like Bestsellers and Specials.
Also something that osCommerce 2.2-MS2 don't have but I well really like to see added is discount codes.
Well that's it for now.
I well just like to say that. If you get this fully intergraded with GL.
I fill this well be one of the major downloads for GL and well make GL a hell of a lot more popular.
