1) Will there be a release of OC that will be XHTML and CSS compliant out of box?

2) Will there be mod rewrite (pretty url) option?

Thank you for your answers ...

1) I'm working on a valid template for myself and gonna send it to Daniel, then it's up to him...

2) I think it's been discussed numerous times but I can't remember what the problem was. I played with .htaccess a bit:

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on 
RewriteRule ^product_([0-9]+).html$ index.php?route=product/product&product_id=$1
this would change:

Code: Select all

Code: Select all
No when the product_id would be alpha numerical, you'd could make the url pretty...
edit: you'd need to change 0-9 to a-z then

I tried the above rule with the latest version (v1.2.2) with no luck.

I only tested this on 1.1.9, had no time yet to see if it works on the latest too.
But as I understand it should cause problems anyway, but I'm don't remember what exactly...

That would be SO nice, to have "pretty" url's! Please include that in the next build....

PS// Isn't OC written in XHTML Strict?

I've been searching far and wide for an awesome ecommerse platform and I found it! openCart is the dogs danglies!! Except!! It's not XHTML 1.1 valid... even the French got that right (prestaShop)...

Would it also be possible to also have a download with no template and just the PHP so we can quickly add our own templates? For example: just give us the <?php echo $header; ?> and not the messy HTML. That would be choice!!

Oh and NO in-line styles please!


PS: Daniel, I'm willing to fix all the xHTML validation errors for you guys...
