Earning a living with OpenCart

Today I was reading this forum when I stumbled upon this post : So should developers start charging more for supporting OpenCart in Joomla? ;) That sort of made me think about this: to be honest, developers should start charging more for everything about OpenCart. Unlimited and forever support, cust...

Re: What is the largest shop so far, any scaling issues?

In my current project, we don't have huge amounts of products but had other challenges: - Customers living in one country order products to be delivered to customers living in another destination country. - B2P portal for resellers. Cart needs to support a reseller living in one country ordering a p...

Re: SEO companies for OpenCart - ideas, discussion

Yes those are spammers, even blindly spamming the same ad twice in this thread. -------------- Said that, in general, there are 3 components to placing well to search engines. Usually the SEO wannabe will read a number of sites. He'll read he's meant to minify resources, to re-compress images to opt...

Re: OpenCart code analysis and suggested improvements

I agree, a balance is needed. It shouldn't be all about changing numbers on a static analysis report. But at the same time cyclomatic complexity does represent a real hurdle in understanding and maintaining code. Have you ever tried to work on the Cart class or the admin order editor? It's difficul...

Re: Deprecated: mysql_connect():

You have 2 issues, and probably the first is not what causes the most issues. 1) Your host has upgraded PHP. Newer versions have deprecated the old "mysql" PHP driver so now it shows a warning blurb. There are free mods to disable it or to (more correctly) make OpenCart use the newer "mysqli" (yeah ...

Re: OpenCart 2.0 and vQmod

The issue is actually fairly simple and even Daniel has no power to it: Demand and offer. If OCMod won't provide what the majority feels its needed to deliver professional mods, then OCMod won't take off. All what we'll have will be: mods starting as OCMod. Then one day the mod maker wants to add ne...

Re: OpenCart code analysis and suggested improvements

I'd like to add a couple of considerations. When developing my extensions, I also use my own PHP Unit tests and indeed some OpenCart functions are hard to stick into a test. I agree on most of what's written here but I'd also caution against going "all out" in that direction. One of the best OpenCar...

Re: Developers deleting extension comments

Why is this allowed? We are paying money for these extensions, people should be able to read every comment, good or bad. Allowing the extension authors to delete comments at will allows them to hide the fact they provide poor service and a substandard product. I wish I could do this with my custome...

Re: How to pass a form value properly from Checkout to Confi

It's not the easiest of the tasks. You have to create a list of every model, view, controller and language file used in any combination of possible user actions from the starting step to the last step where the modification should apply. In every model you have to add a field (if it has to be stored...

Re: New European VAT Rules for Digital Goods - Please Read

Europe are digging their own grave. So many braindead clumps of laws while the economy is sinking.
I hope they'll learn to live by eating paper, because that's what Bruxelles is good at creating.

Re: [RELEASED] Override Engine for OpenCart

I haven't tested it yet Jay's VQMod 2.5, but I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work with the OE on OpenCart 1.5.x. As regards OpenCart 2.0: I only tested it with our own VQmod which works fine with the OE. After 1 week of continued functionality in production code (100+ vQMod XMLs running on ...

Re: [RELEASED] Override Engine for OpenCart

I think you are talking about the catalog/model/checkout/order.php where the original has this: // Send out order confirmation mail $language = new Language($order_info['language_directory']); $language->load($order_info['language_filename']); $language->load('mail/order'); The version with the Ove...

Security scan shows XSS and SQL injection vulnerability

Hello, I have run a security scan (Qualys) on an OpenCart 1.5.6 installation and it detected a number of minor issues but also two major vulnerabilities: XSS and SQL injection. Now, I can't upload the massive report it generated but I can show a sample of what it has detected. One of the OpenCart de...

Re: Adding 2 fields to Address (including checkout)

Thank you so much! The last link you posted is a good start to what I need to do. I'll start with that, then I'll have to figure out where there is missing code. In fact, I have counted how many times the "address_1" string appears througout OpenCart. Out of all the address class fields, I picked it...

Adding 2 fields to Address (including checkout)

Hello, I need to add two varchar fields to che checkout, those fields are an extension to the customer address record. I expect to have to modify the oc_order and oc_address tables at a minimum. Now, despite I think adding such fields is a common need in OpenCart, I haven't found a single howto or t...

Re: Nasty shortcoming affecting all callback based payment m

Thank you! Now that I recall, I have installed the Override Engine and it alters exactly that line with this code: // Send out order confirmation mail $language = $this->factory->newLanguage($order_info['language_directory']); $language->load($order_info['language_filename']); $language->load('mail/...

Nasty shortcoming affecting all callback based payment meth

Hello, I'd like to ask to who knows well OpenCart 1.5.6 if they have experienced this "structural" issue and if so, if they fixed it or if some recent version fixed it. Basically, we have customers from all over the world, paying with credit card, Paypal and bank transfer. Now, I have noticed (pleas...
