Nope it's not sorry. There was just too many issues with specific server settings, and a total of $0.00 in donations didn't help. osCommerce is a hugh pain, as I am sure those who have downloaded the plugin and tried to get it working have noticed. If anyone knows a better open source commerce solution I would be interested it converting it to a geeklog plugin, but alas I don't want to fuss with the mess that is osCommerce anymore (too many headaches with too little return).
Yes I am mental.

Sorry to hear this, I understand your position. I feel that it doesn't have to be oscommerce or zen-cart, which has a lot of features - just a simple shopping cart system that works well with GL's user management and can link up with Paypal.

Thx, mugen

Cube Cart Rocks but he charges to remove his attribution off the bottom of the page otherwise it is fully functioning and open source.

Great little cart system.

Thx for the suggestion, I'm testing it and really like it, much more than oscommerce or zen-cart. If I had mad skillz like some of you, I would make this a GL plugin

I would love to have a plugin version for GL. I have spent all day screwing with an zen-cart site and it is doing some crazy stuff. All i was trying to do was do a security update.

You spend all of your time trying to figure out the mess of the code and can not do anything creative with it.

I am going to give the cubecart a try, I would rather pay anything that screw with thing any more

UPDATE: I just installed cubecart and it is great, the forums are helpful, the templates are completely separate, it would make a good candidate for a plugin.

It is not open source though, you would probably need to get permission from the author or not distribute the source code of the cart.

Zen-Cart and OS Commerce are really 'too much' for most users. I also spent hours for a simple update, and days for figuring out the configuration.....and most of the extra modules are not mature as well...

This is one of those things that everybody wants, yet no one is really willing to work on. I bet you could make a killing by writing one, and charging like $50 for it. If only I knew php well enough. I've used the OSCommerce plugin in the past, and with enough tweaking it works, but because OSCommerce isn't as clean as geeklog, it has issues, mostly with templates.

There is a paypal store plugin out there that someone does charge for. Search for that.

We do need something. I got the OSC plugin to work a few years ago but it required quite a bit of work. Now I am afraid to upgrade GL on that site for fear I will break the cart.

It would be nice if we could have a basic cart that would accept payment modules from OSC or another cart so we don't have to reinvent the wheel.

I was able to install the OsCommerce plugin but I get tons of errors like these:
PHP Formatted Code
An error has occurred:
2 - Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/.peke/jastanle84/stoodup.net/admin/plugins/store/configuration.php:34) @ /home/.peke/jastanle84/stoodup.net/lib-common.php line 843

Can anyone tell me what these errors mean?

Try talking to Vinny @ http://vinny.furiafamily.com/. He is really helpful and is working on this at the moment. Big Grin

Sure, it means admin/plugins/store/configuration.php caused output to be written to the client on line 34. Geeklog usually doesn't send any data to the client until the very end of processing. I'm guessing this file is in the OScommerce part of the system and since it's not a normal part of geeklog it may not be written in a way to avoid making output at inopportune times.

That's what it means. How to fix it? I have no clue as I don't use that plugin. But I hope that will get you to go look at line 34 and figure why it is making output. Configuration files should not cause output.

As for the reasons the support site is down; I made a ton of graphics, icons and did quite a bit of work creating the site, and a specific geeklog developer apparently believes he owns the rights to exclusively use "GL" in his plugin names, and doesn't want anyone else to use "GL", I don't want to piss anyone off so I dropped the site.


Question: did this person claim to own copyright on "GL-", or did he claim trademark? The difference is extremely important. Copyright law does not protect names or titles. If he doesn't have a registered trademark, he has nothing, and you have every right to use GL- in your plugin.
I have no idea what I'm doing.

Ah, OSCommerce, how I hate thee... Those errors are because the oscommerce pages all have <head> tags. Basically you need to go in and clean up each and every page in the plugin to remove a fairly large chunk of crap. Total pain in the ass. Once you get the plugin up and running (GL version 1.3.9 is the latest I've got it working with) it works pretty well unless you want to implement a template change, in which case, good luck.

You could do all that stuff or you could remove the:

PHP Formatted Code
<?php header ('Content-Type: text/html; charset={charset}'); ?>


from your geeklog's theme header.thtml file. No idea what it's there for but removing it fixes the problem with osc and doesn't seem to effect anything else.

True, you could remove the header info from geeklog. I don't know why I never thought of that...

I've read and searched the relevant sites. And, outside of oscommerce, I can't find anyone who has done a block or a plug-in for doing an on-line store. Is there anything out there?<br /><br />Btw, I attmpted to download the oscommerce thing, but apparently that url is wrong or the site is down. I've tried for a few days now.<br /><br />Thanks,<br />Rustylw



I purchased a cool Paypal plugin from Vinny here:

From what I've seen of Vinny's PayPal plugin it works great with Electronic downloads. I still need something more robust than that, plus I only have physical product that I ship out to customers. I may take another look at Vonny's plugin after the next couple of releases.
