Logic Behind Using utf8_bin for DB Text Collation?

I'm a little confused as to why utf8_bin was selected to be used for DB columns such as first name, last name, product name, category name, etc. This marks those columns as binary text columns, which sorts those columns in typically undesired ways. Probably the worst of these cases is how lowercase ...

Re: Cart2Cart..

I just used them for the first time last week actually. I now highly recommend them. I did a migration from Volusion (saas ecommerce platform) to OC, and was very pleasantly surprised. Everything moved over exactly how it needed to. I just had a couple issues, but they were caused by the cart I was ...

Re: GIF Transparency Lost on Resize (Patch Included)

Why don't you post this patch as a VQMod file instead? It's a pretty handy way of patching the core code and, especially if you're not handy with patch files, a lot easier to apply the changes. The patch file is here for OC maintainers to quickly apply the fix to the official code, so everyone bene...

GIF Transparency Lost on Resize (Patch Included)

I'm duplicating this post from the bug tracker entry since it seems to mangle patch text (should be easier to use patch attached here). Bug Tracker Entry: http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=support/bug/info&bug_id=165 Description: The current image library properly handles resizing JPEG and PNG...

Re: Flexible Template System

Well take a look here: http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=24196 under item 4 That compares the 2 systems (old and new) the best I could think. If all the "extras" are defined in the layout.php, then it will be available to move anywhere you want it to be in the layout.tpl I see what you ...

Re: Flexible Template System

So you're an x-cart fan.. we get it. That's not what I said. Where are you getting your definition of MVC I've never seen a definition that states that all variables from any controller need to be/are/should be exposed to every view file, and I've never seen it work this way in practice. There is n...

Re: Flexible Template System

What is going to happen is that there is going to be one main layout.tpl instead of having to modify every individual page if you want to do two column vs three column or something like that. Do you mean layout.tpl defining the structure of the "content" div instead of home.tpl, product.tpl, catego...

Flexible Template System

The way the template system in OC 1.4.x is setup, it doesn't actually behave like a true template system. Certain variables are only actually available in specific template files, and the template file structure is very rigid and hard-coded. To illustrate my point here, I've put together a quick dia...

Re: Regarding Google analytics

B) That code is visible in the bottom of the index page of opencart. What can I do to fix the problem? Now... why would ANYONE want their UA id seen to the whole world?! I want this fixed too but... how, without conflicting with google getting my stats? That's exactly how it's supposed to work. It'...
