Another one to allow you chaps to support the Project. Received overnight;

would love a box like the review box to show random testimonials

And so, here it is. A new sidebox module that shows a random testimonial from your site…which installs just like any other box; upload, go into admin, turn it on. NO CORE CODE CHANGES.

Dropdown Search. Help support the Project.

New Navbar Module which introduces a dropdown search. This is good for EDGE which has the Core Modular Navbar. Simply upload the new files and go into admin and turn it on. Done.

Looks like this in the Navbar:

ds_nav1

And when the search icon is clicked:

ds_nav2

And in the Admin Area;

ds_admin

So, as you can see it’s a new search facility designed for saving space until the search box is needed. Quite nice I think.

And so, you want it…how do you get it…you can get it by donating just £3.50 to the Responsive Project. Donation link, thank you. Donations allow me to spend time moving osCommerce forwards. THANKS.

Product Info Modules

In the latest osCommerce incarnation, it is very simple to create standalone modules which are installable and editable from within the Admin section, this means no core code changes to install addons that add “flavour” to a page. Let’s take a closer look at some modules that are available for the product_info (p_i) page – and remember…NO CORE CODE CHANGES!

1. Social Icons
Adds in a new system of Social Icons, that require no javascript, and is therefore stunningly fast-loading. Modules include: digg, email, facebook, g+, linkedin, pinterest, reddit, stumbleupon, tumblr, twitter.

2. Stock
Shows the product stock in a really nice layout.

3. Products Xsell
Dedicated admin page to set up Xsell products. These show on the relevant p_i page.

4. MP3 Player
Add MP3 tracks to your products, show a MP3 player in your p_i page.

5. Product Tabs
Tabbed layout for extra product data

6. Product Compare
Adds a button that powers a product comparison page.

7. Extra Product Fields
Shows product data on p_i page

8. Linked Products
Shows a link to any linked products

9. Facebook Comments
Allow people to comment on your products

10. Multi Tier Xsell
Same as #3, but supercharged – get 3 levels of Xselling!

11. FAQ System
Get lots of questions about your products? Solve that with this module.

12. Public Tagging
Aka Folksonomy. This is the way to create a faceted search system, with no work on your part!

13. Link to Parent Category
Ever needed a “show more in this range of products” link? You got it!

14. MRRP
Show the Manufacturers Recommended Price

15. Product URL
Missing the old functionality? Bring it back, sing it back…

16. Related Products
Maybe #13 doesn’t cut it? Instead show the products from the category…

17. Slaves
Set up slaves. Show them.

18. Personal Page
Link to a page that allows shoppers to save products into a wishlist

As you can see, with just 1 piece of extra code in product_info.php (included in Responsive osCommerce) it is simple to supercharge your product_info page. The possibilities are endless, and are only limited by your lack of imagination.

If you have an idea for a module that shows on the product_info page, comment below.

Responsive Template “Jesse” for osCommerce – Bootstrap…

Here is the very latest template for the Responsive osCommerce:

jesse-large

As you can see, the layout has just the main column. The sideboxes are not useful anymore, as everything needed can now be found in the header and footer.

The template comes in a very easy to install format. Simply upload a few new modules and turn them on, with NO core code changes. It as simple as going into your shop admin and clicking a few buttons.

The only file that is changed is the “new products for month” module on the index page – this has a slightly different layout to the standard responsive layout – of course, this is an option that you might choose not to install.

The base colour scheme comes as standard in 2 shades of green, along with two shades of grey. These colours are incredibly easy to change, just find a colour you like and change the user.css file to match.

It also comes with carousel module which is linked to the Banner Manager in admin – again making it incredibly easy to set up sliding banners.

Demo

Want to see the Demo? Have a play with the site, maybe open it in both your normal computer and your mobile phone or tablet. This will give you a flavour of how responsive the template is.

To use this template, you need to be using the Responsive osCommerce, the standard osCommerce will not do.
