Only 1 product at a time in osCommerce

Over at the official osCommerce forum, someone asked about the possibility of only allowing a buyer to select 1 of each product.  My answer was to amend the display of the shopping cart and the shopping cart class… It’s fairly easy.  What I am going to show you is amending the display using HTML and… Read More »

Yes, things are delayed – official from osQuantum

After all the debate and hysteria over the past 12 months from Rhea Anthony et al, over at oscanswers, oscommerce project, osquantum and their supporters and detractors, the official word is that the release of the much vaunted osQuantum is to be “delayed”. That’s a pity as I was looking… Read More »
