The e-commerce.

'must have' addons


Recommended Posts



I am setting an oscommerce site up and am wondering before I get too far down the line if there are a 'set' of addons which anyone thinks makes sense for all (or most) site to have?


Things like easypopulate or similar come to mind - may not be useful at the start but who knows when it would come in handy.


Is using a template system sensible?


Just a bit of advice from anyone would come in handy - I know it all depends on what you want as an individual but people may have definite opinions on what and what not to have.

The security add-on are must haves. Following the post installation steps is a must do. Everything else is just icing on the cake (except SEO and feeds maybe.)


Templates are nice and makes it easy for non programmer types. Add-ons also provide nice features but you have to remember that the more you add on, the more the chance of something going wrong due to add on instructions normally being based on stock files and not files with multiple add ons installed. Extra care must be taken each time you install an add on.


No one can say backup too often. Both files and db.
