I've been working on a custom OC 3.0 project for a few months. During this time I feel I've learned the innerworkings of OC fairly well as part of my task was building a fairly complex custom module. I've also purchased numerous extensions in order to add functionality and save time. All told, I'd say about 50% of the time the extensions don't work and of those, most are unsalvageble or downright useless. Others have big security holes or are constantly phoning home or both. And it's not like I'm indiscriminate. I make sure to buy only those that are recently updated and have some positive comments. But still - mostly garbage. I just finished fixing a non-functioning $20 mod that was riddled with typos. How does this junk make it to the market?

I will say I've had great experience with the mods from Jonathan at OpenCartX. But the marketplace is a minefield of crap.

End rant. Thanks for listening.
