Hello everyone,

What are everyone's must have extensions/modules?
I don't want you to just promote what you develop, but what you really feel every shop should have to make admin and/or shopping easier?
I understand all shops are different and therefore needs will be different, I'm just curious as there are literally thousands to choose from.

For me personally, my Admin ones would have to be one that let me customise the left navigation - this has made things much easier and quicker. The other admin one would have to be one that auto refreshes the cache after every change - it not only saves me time, but it's auto, so i never forget and then get poopy when things don't work lol

Ummm as for shopping ones, probably the quick checkout and one of those payment plan types (ie: afterpay/zip pay etc), oh and I like the little welcome messages customers get when they log into their account :-)

Have a great day/night everyone, wherever you are :-)
Luv Brontè

Well, some of your Wishes can be fulfilled for free, it might only depend on the
OC Version you use. :D That's, why I would never use later Versions, no free Mods ! :laugh:
Shown below are v.2.x - v.3.x Versions only!
Good Luck! ;)

Thanks Ernie, but what I am asking is what are your must haves?
What extensions do you think every shop should have?

Well, I am trying for 4+ Years already, to 'compose' the ultimate Admin Solution, but a
major Problem is, to then make all those Extensions work with other Extensions, as well
as the wide range of differently coded Themes. And if something like this ends up with
~100 VqMods, among a range of additional Modules, like in my Case(s), one cannot
longer expect additional Extensions, to just do their Job, without beeing reworked, or
even partly combined, first.

But as long as one has no 'finalized' idea on a Front Side layout Content, it's rather
complicated, to decide on what's best, since a Shop Site Design also depends on the
Products, one likes to offer.

Exept for strictly admin-related Functions, like a Database Editor, VqModerator,
OcMod Editor, Source-Code Editor, Language Editor, Cache Cleaner, Copy-Option,
e.t.c., among extended easy Customer/Category/Product handling, a well-done
'elfinder' based Image-handling tool, and a couple of Security related things. In
addition to some good SEO- and Reporting -Tools.

My Admin bases on the famous OpenShop Extension Idea, and it already had a lot
of Goodies built-in, to give me an idea, where to start best. And, as you mentioned,
it took me more than 4 Years, to test most seemengly usable Code, but it's impossible,
to keep an oversight, after a while. For someone, requiring a Shop to go online soon,
it would not work this way, I am aware of this.

That's about, what I can say to this ! ;)
