Hi,

What arguments would you use to persuade a client to upgrade from 1.5 to 2?

He's not keen!

Thanks,

1) Bug Fixes
2) Security Fixes
3) Faster
4) Responsive front and back
5) All of the additional features out
6) 1.5.x is going to die off sooner than 2.x!

But, honestly, exept for Responsiveness, wich can be added to v.1.5.6.x without a problem, I have not been able to locate anything so far, looking much different, code-wise, on the Inside, plus, some of the old missing things, like simple width/height image Tags, do still not exist. Or an built-in Option, to change from INSIDE /CSS/JS/Image Linking to SubDomain Hosting/Adressing, in order to speed up overall Performance, is missing as well.

Worse, trying to add a simple external Image Link somewhere, by Use of the build-in Editor, makes one wonder, why filtering has been made so tide, that a simple thing like this is not longer possible, by default.

And due to the FULL 'Intergration' of (responsive) Bootstrap CSS-Styling, it leaves less or no Chances, to individually re-create Parts of the Layout, without fundamentally learning and so understanding of the basic OC2 Layout Setup first.

And when it comes to Performance, I really don't see a great progress, compared to v.1.5.6.x, it even takes just about the same Modifications, to make it work, as it should, and could, by default, I assume:

But I don't want to play destructive, or critical, in any way, it's not my Business, after all. I just figured, to repaint your sunny, sky-blue ALL WELL DONE Message a little... ;D

Nothing personal, just Facts!
And if you don't hear me anymore here, I probably got banned, because of this... :P
