osc v3 – something brewing? 1 day to go?

I’ve never seen more than 1 Team Member on… and today there have been 3 already! Something brewing regards the promised release of v3 of osCommerce do you think? Forget “mother” as that’s just a generic team member who does nothing. The other two, “Yuen” and “Odom” don’t do much except to look after the… Read More »

osCommerce Multiple Images using Fancy Box

The other day I spent some time “doing up” a site. I had a list of to-do’s and was basically given carte-blanche to do whatever was needed to make it work… One of the requests was the ability for some products to have more than 1 image in the pop-up. I know that there are… Read More »

FAQ: remove infobox corners

osCommerce is kinda coded a bit clunky – we have to take into account that the majority of the codebase has not been updated in around 8 years. For this reson some things are done in osCommerce, which now, as webdesigners, we laugh at. But 8 years ago, it was almost cutting edge… A question… Read More »

A post that is not about osCommerce! Apologies to regular readers for the lack of posts – here in the UK we’ve been having “severe” weather problems with snow (which is something that we are simply not used to). My ISP decided to give up and has only in the last couple of days been… Read More »
