This can hardly be called a "road map". Especially for a non-geek.
Well, Fellows, I have the feeling, that you sometimes forget, that OC is not Microsoft, but
still belongs to the 'small business' class, when it comes to the number of employees.
And it also depends on 'free' assistance, by those, eventually creating parts of their
income too, by offering paid extensions.
But it's generally risky in Life, to depend on fully independent assistance, because only a
small fraction of them will remain, and even active at the forum, for free, over an extended
period of time, confronted with ever the same...
Non-Geeks and Newbies might not be aware of this, and/or don't even care about. But most
of them are not aware of much anyway, when it comes to Opencart and/or 'Code' in General ...
Rather than a RoadMap, a Page full of Warnings would most likely be much better, to get
their Expectations down, to somehow realize, not to have found free Heaven, to get rich
quick, and without the slightest Knowledge, on how such a Software works.
Such can be found on my Demo Site Main Pages, and one would not believe, how dramatically
it shrinks the amount of 'Dreamers', partly expecting OC to solve all their (financial) problems
for good. And all that only due to some crazy Freaks, just waiting, to support them, obviously
just to prove their goodness to some God and/or the World...
A simple ('neutralized') sample, obviously proven to work:
Code: Select all
PLEASE NOTE, that NO free Support is included and/or part of this free Offer, and/or can be expected. If no free assistance to Users is available at the OC Forum and/or Facebook OC Sites, paid Support might be required, if one likes to change existing things, or to add some Extensions.
Custom Bootstrap Themes Extensions might be built different from default OC Theme Style and Files related, and 'global' OC Forum Knowledge might not always work out, and/or is not available for free at the Forum, if [b]any[/b] Custom Coding is part of an NON-DEFAULT Opencart Installation, regardless of the OC Version and/or Theme used.
This needs to be clearly understud, fully accepted, and agreed on!
The whole OC Concept is not a free Gift from heaven, and not used, to create Fun, but Income, for most everybody involved! The Opencart Package comes for free, for Developers and End-Users, and/but that's all, you can expect, for nothing in return!
All open-source OC Code included comes as tested and matched, and/but without further Warranty, Obligation and/or Responsibility, from either Side.
Please NEVER overwrite and possibly kill a working Installation, but install and test a new OC Software Version in a separate Subdirectory first, or you might end up in Tears!
Just a crazy Idea from an old Nut
