The issue, if you are still having it, with the forums banner wrapping is within how your browser settings are. I use all browsers, except FireFox, and have no issues. I don't use FireFox because it has always had some issue with the display of some sites. For some reason it acts as if it does not always recognize the resolution coding that is written into the site designs. Never had this issue with any of the others though.

Hi Daniel,

One suggestion regarding the Extension comments. Currently the order is only ASC (oldest first) and since the comments are few it's ok, but extensions with large number of comments probably it's better to be DESC, so you can see the latest entries first. Especially if you are extension owner, you are interested from the latest ones, and at least my understanding is that newcomers should see that the extension has good and responsive support.

So my suggestions are:
Add links/buttons in the comment tab where visitors can select their desired order (optionally this selection can be stored in a cookie).
Add a field in extension form where owners can set what should be the comments order. The default could be ASC, so it will remain the same as now.

I hope you find my suggestions reasonable :)

Hi Daniel,

I've been using the Images part of the Extension publishing interface a lot lately and couldn't help but notice a few things.

1. Replacing an already uploaded image is not possible. If you want to show a slideshow with specific order this means you have to reupload all your images again to keep the order after the update. Which brings me to my second observation:
2. When displayed, the images on the extension page are sorted by no particular order. Or maybe they sort by time and date of upload? If so what happens if you upload multiple images at the same time? Just tested it, image from position 2 is bigger than image in position 3, gets uploaded slower and ends up in position 3 on the extension page below the banner. Still, the order becomes unpredictable after a couple of edits of the images in the back end, mostly because they sort one way when you use the Add Image button and a different way when you open that tab again after publishing the extension.

3. The JPEG recompression kills the images. Wouldn't it be better to put a max file size limit of 200-300kb for those 500px square images and let the publisher/developer manage the quality himself?

Following these observations I would suggest that we need a proper way of modifying/updating product images and a way to specify their order of display. This kind of control will lead to people using them more creatively like the things they do at the AppStore for example — slideshow of images that tells a story. The visual medium is far more effective than text for selling extensions and will lead to higher commissions for opencart.com and higher sales for developers if they are able to fully control it.

What do you think?

Daniel, I don't know if this is easily fixable now, but a lot of extensions still have tags that were pulled automatically from the product description, which means they come up for a lot of search results for which they shouldn't. I think if developers haven't added tags by now, then the field should be cleared. Not sure if that's doable with a database query, but it would likely help improve the relevance of search results.

I would say the search of extension is always UNPRECISE relative to the number of extensions now.
I recommend putting ONE search word only as if you put 2 words for search (OR), the result gets bigger and so on...
The images of extensions are too small, impossible to read titles, labels, buttons and guessing the behaviour.
A zoom or full size would be appreciated.

Hello Daniel,

We have just released Garmento Responsive Premium OpenCart Template. We'd be very happy if you include it in the banners list. Here is how the banner looks.

Your image thumbnails are "really" hard to see. :) The ones on the extension page.

You mean the clarity? I think I should compress them before upgrading them, maybe they wont be that way anymore. Ill try now.

Perhaps yes. I always just upload .PNG's or make sure the jpegs are compressed at 100 quality :)
Yes, they are just really hard to see the details.

Look at my extension and notice the difference:

I agree with eka7a on Search.
There is 5 shipping extensions with word "Colissimo". You can see all them if you select 'Shippping".
But if you do a search with "Colissimo", result is only 2.

Extensions images are really too small. Should have their height displayed equal to the inner window frame.
I already see that on other sites so it's possible to code.
