Upgrading a heavily modified store

I am currently working on a new store which will be using oscommerce. I am planning to do some heavy modifications to the look of the store. Am I correct in assuming that this will pose a problem for me if the need to upgrade the software arises in the future? Because it's not a template based system?

You are correct.

NOTE: As of Oct 2006, I'm not as active in this forum as I used to be, but I still work with osC quite a bit.

If you have a question about any of my posts here, your best bet is to contact me though either Email or PM in my profile, and I'll be happy to help.

The good news though, if you really are going to be doing heavy modifications, like me, then you will get a much better understanding of osC and upgrading might be a pain, but perhaps you could just copy and paste snippets of new codes to replace older codes, without messing everything up.

 

I must admit I won't be so happy to upgrade to MS3 though... it ain't easy modifying everything!

Some users find it easier to keep up to date through CVS - so their store code develops as does the codebase - this can occasionally hiccup with a bug, but the core developers have been outstanding in addressing issues as they arise.

 

Another method is to use a file comparison utility such as Beyond Compare - only making necessary changes - this still requires some nous on a heavily modified store :blink:
