@peteneon - stop hijacking a thread because the mods and admins are taking part in it, this is totally off topic and annoying, you will get more of an answer if you start a new support topic!
@Storeexecute - If you think you can do a better job than Daniel then be our guest, I very much doubt Execute cart will compare and have the same level of commitment, community and longevity.
@Daniel - Great work dude. Ive had a quick poke around at it and will be testing it out today. Just remember to listen to the valid points and take peoples requests etc into account. If a mod is good enough to become part of the core (in my opinion many are) then re-write the code in your style and add it, who cares if it means you have to acknowledge somebody elses contrib....even if it was done personally (if it was me I wouldnt be bothered about acknoledgment of my contrib as I would feel its the least I can do to a great open source project). The main reason I mention this is that some great modules use core hacks that if incorporated would not have to be re-installed when updating, saving time for everyone. There does have to be some kind of new release and bug system, so people know where they are. I respect the fact that its your baby and I dont mind the fact you want to do all coding and work, but if it meant help from others here for the greater good of the project then why not accept it. We should have an Opencart Camp!!!! Im sure Q would fly over and be a guest speaker
. Im donating today as your hard work should be rewarded, just wish I could give more....Im so rookit!!! As Im just a lowly designer I very much respect the brains of coders!
@Everyone else - Chillllllllll. Remember that this is Daniels project, it isnt a democracy, he doesnt have to listen to you if he doesnt want to (this can be frustrating i know). He has made a commitment to making Opencart free and opensource, what have you commited? Im guessing over hald the people on this thread probably havent made any kind of contribution to the project at all. Over all guys I think we should be happy we have such a great product to work with and that Daniel does read and listen to our comments, OK he might not act on them and do what we want all the time but he does sometimes and bottom line is you all still get a great FREE product with great functionality which is improved moreso by people like Qphoria, readyman, fido and others.
I want everyone to do something for Opencart today and help Daniel out. Start a thread in another forum saying how great it is, or write a review on your blog (Im writing another one today), donate some money, link to this site from yours, contribute a mod, moan at your host to get Opencart listed in their CP's for auto download (Im still working on mine). Everyone on this forum can do atleast one of these things today I know it!! http://www.effutio.com/category/opencart/
Also agree with Superjuice, good points well made, I hope people listen
Heres to Opencart and I hope it has a great year!!
