Considering trashing my current setup...


vcache

Recommended Posts

I am considering trashing my current setup ( I will be keeping the images - especially the ones I created/modified) and starting with a fresh setup (reason being I screwed up a paypalipn installation and I can't seem to get rid of the issues it has raised)

 

I realize that if you ask 100 people their opinion on something, you will likely get 100 different answers...

 

 

that being said...What I would like to know is what contribs I should install...and whatever contribs I decide on will be installed before I make my modifications...

 

Here's what I would like to have, if possible...

 

* Integration with Paypal's IPN feature

* A way to easily move multiple products to a different category

* A daily, weekly and monthly orders summary

* Secure admin section with login and password

 

 

I also eventually would like to accept credit cards directly on my site (something I can install and 'activate' later...

 

 

Basically I would like to get the contribs installed on a fresh installation of OSC and *then* do any modifications I need to do to the site...

I think your best bet is too just install those contribs that you may find useful. However there are a heck of a lot of them that just don't work, and trying to get support is like trying to get blood out of a stone. So here's a list of some of the contribs that do definately work and can be put in together.

 

Barcode v1.0

Copyright update

Down for maintenance v2.1

faq system

footer ip

Gift voucher

 

 

and here's a few that I would like, but they just don't work properly, or the install instruction ask you to edit files that you don't have.

 

human_confirmation_v1.1a (don't get any errors when you don't fill in the textbox)

tep_advanced search (kept getting error call to undefined function, when using "improved search")

and I think Order status history caused a problem, but can't remember what it was.

Well...I know for sure that I would want to use Gift Voucher because of the monthly give-aways I plan to have.

 

Don't *really* need the other ones (although I may get Down For Maintainence)

 

I also plan to see about working with my supplier to see if I can work out having orders sent directly to them (since my supplier also uses oscommerce I'm thinking this *should* be possible)...this would save me a TON of time over having to manually enter each order...

Ok...current setup has been trashed (I *do* have a backup, of course...just in case)
