Re: Is Open Cart better than VirtueMart for Joomla! ?

I think it is very difficult to compare a shopping cart solution with a Joomla component. I did try out some solutions to migrate from oscommerce to xxx.. OpenCart was my favorite solution until I did find virtuemart. It integrates into Joomla, so I have both: a good cms and a ecommerce component wi...

Re: Virtuamart comparison with Open Cart

The big advantage of virtuemart is that it is a Joomla module and it hangs somehow inside the CMS. Thanks to Joomla it allows a lot of things which OpenCart as a standalone shopping cart solution cannot offer. A big disadvantage is the lack of multi language capability and the slow performance with ...

Re: OpenCart as a Module for SilverStripe

I do not want to promote Joomla or something else. OpenCart should stay OpenCart as a standalone solution. Not everybody needs a CMS around the shopping cart. But I do not agree that Silverstripe is the better CMS. You can call Joomla bloated but it is XHTML strict like OpenCart. Silverstripe is jus...

Re: OpenCart as a Module for SilverStripe

I think there should be a forked version of OpenCart as a Joomla module in the same way as virtuemart does it. Virtuemart is a lot slower than OpenCart and it has some nasty coding inside, which does not fit into Joomla. Joomla uses MVC like Opencart (Virtuemart does not MVC and it just hangs someho...

Re: Deutsche Sprachdatei

Wird in der Layout-Konfiguration das header.tpl immer aufgerufen d.h. ist das Layout so, dass immer der header mit drin ist? Versuch mal in der CSS Datei folgenden Zeichensatz mit einzufügen: Arial Unicode MS also beispielsweise dort wo dies steht: * { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; } Da...

Re: [HOW TO] - Welcome Message / Customer Name in Header

thanks Fido, I'll try it out. To Qphoria, what about a more severe version (the dominatrix style) to treat customers. We change the 'welcome customer' to something like: Take your feets from the table and get down on your knees. And just a few changes in the language entries. We could name the payme...

Re: [HOW TO] - Welcome Message / Customer Name in Header

Qphoria, why should it crap the code? It is as simple as that: add a field into the customer table and name it: gender and give it char(1) . Put a requested field into the create account ba making two radio buttons or a dropdown with two entries. Add a little piece of code into the admin section to ...

Re: Professional Templates... where?

But, could someone help me with that: http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=7111 Did just publish a conversion script from oscommerce to OpenCart under Contributions. Has anybody here an idea how to tell OpenCart to validate osc customer passwords too, so the customers don't need to ask for...

Re: Professional Templates... where?

Before evaluating OpenCart I did translate or better did try to translate Prestashop. They use those fixed size buttons and my language for example says for cart Einkaufskorb. So there are some letters more which do not fit into the button. Think in the case of buttons it is possible to change the c...

Re: Any scripts for migration?

Just did publish an oscommerce migration tool (sorry until now only customers and orders). http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=contribution/contribution/info&category_id=8&contribution_id=276 It works but there is one problem. OpenCart uses another password algorithm, so until now it is impossib...

Re: [HOW TO] - Welcome Message / Customer Name in Header

It would be even more amazing, if OpenCart would have a table entry for the gender of the customer as requested field. So we could use the gender and the lastname to greet the customers. Actually if we take the lastname we do not know whether it is a female or male customer. It would be also useful ...

Re: Professional Templates... where?

Hi imaginetech, thank you for accepting my excuse. Maybe it is because my native language is german, so that I do not understand exactly what you mean. This is the case with your language compatibility. If I understand it right you mean the php echo part .... Yes, that is a limit but it is a limit i...

Re: Professional Templates... where?

Dear Daniel, I think for template conversion, OScommerce templates (we talk about OSC 2.2.RC2a) are not the best solution to do so. In OScommerce there is no strict separation of code and design. I use a modified Template Monster template. And it is necessary, if you install a contribution, to chang...

Re: Professional Templates... where?

I am actually using OS Commerce for live shop purposes. If I use OpenCart as shop system, I' ll make a donation to Daniel. But I make no donations for css hacking. As already told I can do it with css edit myself (for Mac users) or with wordpad (for windows users). And if no designers offer sophisti...

Re: Professional Templates... where?

Well, it was imaginetech who told about the language problems. And I do not see those limits with the MVC engine, where the theme has just something to do with the 'V' and nothing with the 'M' or 'C'. Prestashop uses Smarty, what I personally do not like, because it slows down bigger shops. But in t...

Re: Professional Templates... where?

imaginetech, You want to misunderstand me, right? To tell it again: Prestashop uses MVC too but with smarty. It is completely multilingual. But lets continue about templates for OpenCart. As a customer I do not care about how a template designer does it with the language compatibility. If you change...

Re: Professional Templates... where?

Hi imaginetech, I did post that link to give an example and I am not a web designer. I do not care about how difficult or not difficult it is to make such templates for Opencart. That is not my problem. It is the problem of the web designer, who gets paid for. I expect those skills if I pay for some...

Re: Professional Templates... where?

Qphoria,

take a look at that. it is free and it is for Prestashop. And if it would not be freeware I would indeed buy it. That is what I mean with creative design. It is by far more than editing the css.

Re: Professional Templates... where?

Hi Qphoria, it is clear that it is not possible to download a wordpress theme, put it into the themes folder and use it. But that way is a lot easier than to start from scratch (like those psd templates). Wordpress themes are somehow php ready and easier to adapt than a simple html template. Of cour...
