Contact

I haven't found a way to contact Jonathan

I've tried reading up about it but get lost in it all.

I'm OK with html and css and stuff like that but when it comes to programming it's a language that I'm less familiar.

Isn't there a complete idiots guide to installing modules etc?

I'm a bit nervous to change anything as I'm not so program savvy.
I don't want to alter or add too much in case I mess up.
Is there an easy walk through help for those less familiar with programming languages?

Working with version 1.4.9.4
I am using weight for shipping but I'm struggling to get it right because the first items are always heavier than additional ones.
I cant seem to find a structure to incorporate everything
I'm not sure if I'm able to use per item shipping instead
Any suggestions?

I guess I should have figured that one out for myself

Re: Wy web hosting cant/wont turn off Magic quotes GPC

It's easy to say change host but I am locked into a 1 year contract at £15 a month and can't get out until January.
I really can't afford to pay for another hosting on top of this
Is there really no other way to make Opencart work without turning magic quotes off?
