Re: OpenCart v1.4.9 RC3 Available for Public Testing!

Quick question. Is version 1.4.9 just a beta 'test bed' with a view to jumping from 1.4.8.b straight up to 1.50, or is the idea for it to be a formal release within its own right? I know the original plan was to bring 1.50 out around the end of August and so appreciate that timescale will probably b...

Re: Why use OpenCart?

The only bells it rings are "time to bring the crazies back to the looney bin". The only 'crazies' are the clowns that bring out new versions that you can no longer use the older themes with. Rather than focusing on what other cart producers are doing, why not strive to be different? Otherwise you ...

Re: Why use OpenCart?

Why does the topic of themes keep coming up? It has nothing to do with the cart itself. It's simply up to you to make or find a theme. Perhaps the fact that the subject of themes keeps coming up should start ringing some bells perhaps?? Making a theme is not an easy proposition for many folks. Open...

Re: Question regarding openCart installation

Download OpenCart for free from this site. On your web hosting first set up your database. Upload OpenCart to the web hosting space using ftp into the public html folder. Run OpenCart by typing your domain name/folder name and follow the instructions. Have a pen and paper handy to write down a user ...

Re: Web hosts. Who's good and who to avoid

For UK based hosting, I have found catalyst2 to be one of the better offerings for low priced hosting. http://www.catalyst2.com One to definitely avoid is Apthost. One of their employees put malicious code on their servers, which they stated on their own site. Sadly they didn't do a good job of clea...

Re: Welcome to Bugsafari's OpenCart shop!

It's clean, it's functional, you have good photos and sensible length product descriptions. All the information a potential purchaser could want is all in there. All the essential elements for doing good trade on the net. :)

Re: IMacro's Scripts Site

I am actually a great follower of fluid width sites. My philosophy being 'if the screen space is there - fill it up'. :) My first reaction to your site, was I didn't know where to look first. ??? It all seems rather too busy on there. Whilst not wanting you restyle your entire site, some clarity bet...

Re: Question regarding openCart installation

OpenCart is very easy to install. The first step is to name your database, assign a user and set permissions, preferably using a tool like phpMyAdmin. Most hosting accounts will have this tool installed. You then just run the OpenCart program and it populates the database and sets up OpenCart for us...

Re: Progress Towards 1.5.0

You mean pants wetter design ;) More the fact that Zen Cart still haven't released their new version in over two years now, osCommerce seems to have stopped moving forward altogether, Prestashop only appears to work with some versions of mysql (great only if you own the hosting), Magento from every...

Re: Progress Towards 1.5.0

Tell you what Daniel, if all those elements are going to be in version 1.5.0, you will blow Zen Cart and Prestashop right of the water, plus many other cart solutions too. ;D

Re: Why use OpenCart?

but oc template is still very simple to understand to do major changes to the templates. you can either change colors or adopt any complex design what so ever to it with ease. I think the essential difference with programs like Zen Cart. is that there are several templates already available, many o...

Re: Progress Towards 1.5.0

Like many other folks, I find OpenCart easier to work with than Zen Cart. I haven't made the transition to OpenCart on a live shop yet, as I miss the one inbuilt feature of Zen Cart, the shipping estimator on the cart page. I think that all carts need to show the potential customer what the shipping...

Re: How does Paypal Express work?

Comparing regular PayPal standard against PayPal Express, I must admit that my own preference (as a shopper) is towards regular PayPal. I feel uncomfortable about givng 'authorisation' to debit my PayPal account, until I know what the shipping and other charges are going to be. It's a bit like givin...

Re: How do I centre (center) the header image?

Thanks again for your help Webvet. I forgot to mention that I was using fluid width, rather than fixed pixel width. Having said that, I had a mess around in the area of the area of the stylesheet you indicated and modified the code to get it to work. It 'appears' to be working #header .div2 { positi...

Re: How do I centre (center) the header image?

Thanks for that Webvet, it has removed all the links I wanted out of the way.

Just have the problem of how to centralise the header image now.

If anyone knows how to get the header image into the centre of the page in this later default template, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks..... :)

Re: Why use OpenCart?

That's not to say that we can't try to go above and beyond other carts. That is exactly the attitude to have to push the product forwards. ;D The folks over at Coffeecup came up with a novel idea last year, by creating a separate designer program to complement their little cart offering. It allows ...

Re: Why use OpenCart?

It is funny that every once in a while the discussion on the default template comes up. Most store-owners seem to know how important a "own" look is but they refuse to invest money in a custom template to get that look. Because OpenCart is fee they want this special look for free as well :-[ I can ...

Re: Why use OpenCart?

Opencart is one of the best structured and easy to code for carts out there. just because you lack the skills to do basic php tasks then don't blame opencart! I am not talking about me Daniel, I am talking in general. If there is this plethora of skilled Opencart template builders out there, then h...

Re: Why use OpenCart?

I'm having troubles with what you are saying. It is not up to OpenCart to give more then 1 template for free, neither to give difficult to build payment modules away for free. That is up to the community. Everyone is free to build a template and provide it for a fair price or a small amount. The go...
