Might be good to have the number of reviews in tooltips (title tags) for the stars. e.g.
4.8 based on 12 reviews

can't remember if I have mentioned this before but I think for me personally (and a customer of mine) free delivery to certain postcodes and multiple VAT rates.

I have a customer who is currently using TradingEye who's charges are too high... they sell solid fuels charged at 5% VAT and compost, kindling, coal bunkers etc at 20% VAT also the deliver to certain postccodes as standard so no delivery charge is added but if someone up country orders say a ton of coal then they will want to add set postage costs.

This is already possible. You just need to set the tax classes appropriately.

This works only for the menu, not for the subcategories listed in main content area. For that,

Thanks for the reply and I apologize for my aggressive approach - it's just born from frustration - you must be referring to 1.5.3.1 as I don't see those options in 1.5.2.1 - as stated previously I'm waiting for 1.6 - My original point was purposely provocative to receive attention by the developers - OC has MAJOR bottlenecks - Sub Category retrieval for one - also new thinking and logic should apply too - some things just don't make any sense with the cart. For one - it has not been geared towards a large category or product count - yet it boasts that these are unlimited. Maybe they are but speed is never mentioned! - Don't forget - to embark on a new cart takes a great deal of time and energy - not to mention money spent - and then find that there are silly let downs that can easily be fixed. Here in lies the problem - THE BRIDGE BETWEEN REAL WORLD COMMERCE and Developers idea of it is a BIG ONE! Don't get me wrong OC is slick in appearance - lots of good modules out there too - but for every good module there are 10 bad ones and OC doesn't police this. There are also very bad developers taking custom projects on for people and not delivering - but charging in advance. I have been stung already! - 1.6 needs to do something radical with this cart and my suggestion is ARCHITECTURE - it seriously needs looking at.

Fantastic idea. Actually I was looking for this the first time I looked at OpenCart. And I can only agree.
Then I just submitted a feature request for better product administration, too http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=110&t=69527 The system offer a lot of options, but then, having to find your way to where these options are being used, is very tedious and time consuming, opening a lot of individual pages and sub pages, one by one.

I think, that all would shoot OpenCart right to a front place! ;)
Thank you for your consideration.

I can only agree!
Coming to add-ons, that's why I hold back from paying for add-ons. In fact, there are some developers, you need to "buy from their store" even the FREE modules but then you never hear from them. Never get a download link, nothing... how do you think I think about "Buying" from them..! I have no idea what they think but money doesn't just rain.
Hence, a developer review panel might be a good idea too and developer who want to "sell" their products, should need to have a security deposit in escrow with OpenCart for any disputes!

Mind you, I engaged "Companies" for some development, paid a lot of money in advance and never received a thing. We lost tens of thousands! Someone asking money in advance will not even get a handshake and goodbye any longer ;)

Their should definitely be some sort of control panel for OC to get rid of the "fast and easy money maker developers" delivering only buggy add-on which in turn, falls back "Negative" on OpenCart as well. At the end, it's all revolving around OpenCart, and negative and angry clients will never post about "this" developer but about OpenCart! !! right? !! ;)

Thanks

If the Facebook login to post reviews were just one of the options, and keep the current system of post, so i think its good too.

Facebook comments are not indexed by google, while the current system is. Then, if you just use FB comments you will loose content that helps your SEO "score".

Another thing.. i will keeping looking about a extension/function to create surveys directly inside opencart to cross with customers / purchaces informations.. if there is (i didnt find yet) could some one alert me? Thanks, keep this good work for 1.6 guys! :)

Facebook comments and Facebook login to post reviews are 2 different things. e.g. Disqus and IntenseDebate allow Facebook login to post comments but both are indexed.

The requested functionality simply increases credibility of the reviews by showing real name and photo of reviewer (and linking to profile page of reviewer). And it makes easier for customers already logged in to Facebook (a large and increasing number, especially in the West, especially among young people) to post comments.

Don't know of one that does that, but this one allows sending mails http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... ion_id=573

ok, so I have fallen in love with Opencart, it's way more accessible to me, an average user, than say Magento (which I also use, and find a ball-ache) I have built two new sites with OC, and do NOT miss Magento. to all of you who've dev'd this, major hat tip!

here's my 2pth - I agree with all the above.

[*]DB cache
[*]Java/Css Cache
[*]URL rewrites - automatically, whenever you change a URL.
[*]RSS made easier
[*]XML sitemaps as XML sitemaps
[*]Mailchimp Integration
[*]a blog - optional install, perhaps - that runs on a second DB?
[*]PDF invoices - with logo pull in and email-able to client/customer.
[*]bulk (tick box?) enable disable in admin of products
[*] searched for products display in admin
[*] bulk dump of pdf pick and pack lists as well as invoice.

will add more. But overall, I am blow away by this all!

Ability to integrate a MUCH more dynamic and robust MEGA MENU navigation system - both horizontally and vertically. (i.e. the ability to integrate various modules - such as user login/register, mini-product display w/ add-to-cart, video, custom-html, etc.)

This is an area where other open-source options such as Magento or Jooma+Virtuemart have the advantage.

two things I would very much like to see added to the next version;

1. The ability to redeem vouchers or coupons at checkout. This is currently only able through a 3rd party mod, but it's almost impossible to find were to do it otherwise. In every webshop this is a standard feature, just not in opencart for some reason.
2. Dependent options. For smaller webshops this isn't a really big thing, but if the webshops grows it will soon become neccesary.
