Coding is really difficult

After having more than three years out, with the last 18 months being almost totally offline, coming back to coding is really difficult. It’s very surprising how quickly one forgets the simplest tasks – things that over the course of the last 20 odd years I’ve done 1000s of times….which have just gone *pooooffff*….

Phoenix Cart – Price Breaks

With no core code changes it is now possible to set up price breaks per product. A typical example would be; Buy 1 for $9.99Buy 3+ for $8.99Buy 10+ for $5.00 and so on. I suppose it might be a good use for wholesalers or for those shopowners who sell multiples of products. Admin Side… Read More »

Look at what you could have won…

I’m really glad I tried my best to keep osCommerce alive and somewhat relevant. Some people are not glad. It’s demoralising to see these images posted on the osCommerce forum – plain and simple, it’s bullying behaviour.

Have a play with it and see if you like it.… Read More »

Bootstrap 4 Build, take a look

While I’ve been laid up, I took that time out to work Bootstrap v4 into Frozen. Here is osCommerce rebuilt. Differences are not massive, but to my eye it looks cleaner and tighter. BSv4 is leaner and meaner than BSv3, which has meant an average 10% increase in Speed. Let me know your thoughts!

Rumours and whispering

Rumours about inactivity, and not caring anymore…spread by people who have a motive. Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes. In actual fact I am taking a little break from the osCommerce forum, as simple as that, which is not the same as “inactive”. While I am taking this little bit of time away, and when I… Read More »
