Question OpenBay Pro Poll
Posted by: villagedefrance - 02-19-2018, 12:45 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

Hi all,

I seriously need some feedback on this:

Should OpenBay Pro remain part of Overclocked Edition?

For those of you that don't already know, here is a couple of facts about OpenBay Pro:

- It is not Free;
- It is not PHP 7.1+ compatible *;
- It is big in size and has a lot of language files **;
- It has not been updated for v1.5.6.4 for a while;
- It doesn't seem to be commonly used. Any of you use it?;
- Support for Overclocked Edition is unlikely to be available.

*: I should be able to change that if it is to stay.
**: A lot of extra work for translations into other languages!

I personally would like to remove it from Overclocked Edition, for all the reasons mentioned above, but also because I would like to slowly move away from OC, focus more on essential cart features and make the code even leaner and faster.

So there it is, please tell us what you think.

  Thoughts about GDPR
Posted by: Tango - 02-18-2018, 08:28 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (9)

Recently we got ourselves another "fun" EU regulation called General Data Protection Regulation.

The more I read about it, the more I wonder how does it affect our stores...

What are your thoughts about this?

  Admin Notification and Shortcut
Posted by: Tango - 02-11-2018, 11:14 PM - Forum: New Feature Requests - Replies (4)

Found another nice mod, that makes life easier for the admin by showing the most important notifications, right in the top menu.
It streamlines the admin workflow, by keeping important tasks at a distance of a click. Smile

In my opinion, it needs to get included in the core.

  Admin Log Extension
Posted by: Tango - 02-11-2018, 10:42 PM - Forum: New Feature Requests - Replies (2)

With OpenCart's ability to have multiple users, it would be nice for us to have an Admin Log to record all user actions.

So I've found this nice free extension https://www.opencart.com/index.php?route...n_id=20605

Would it be possible to adapt it and install it by default into OpenCart Overclocked?

  OpenCart Security

Recently I've been researching stuff about the level of security offered by OpenCart and found the following issues that worried me:
https://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?t=147282 and https://blog.sucuri.net/2016/12/unrestri...login.html

My question is, were these 2 issues fixed in OpenCart Overclocked?

  The Menu Manager
Posted by: villagedefrance - 01-22-2018, 12:33 PM - Forum: F.A.Q and Tutorials - Replies (1)

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to say a few things about the Menu Manager in OCE, how great an flexible it is.

The Menu Manager in OCE allows you to custom build an unlimited number of menus for your shop.
Not only you can have one or more different menus on every page but you can also use a different Menu Module for each one! We will come to the Menu Modules in a second, but first I need to explain a bit more about the manager itself.

The Menu Manager:
It is a stand-alone feature in OCE. It allows you to construct multiple lists of entries with or without links, internal or external, with an unlimited number of sub-categories (children).
As opposed to OpenCart, the menu does not automatically display all the Categories, which is a limitation in my view. In OCE you have to build it by choosing what you want to show in it. Total freedom but a bit more work. That means that if you add more categories to your store, they will not show automatically. You will have to go in the Menu Manager and add a new entry in your custom menu in order to display it.

The Menu Modules:
There are 2 Menu Modules by default in OCE, the Menu Horizontal and the Menu Vertical. They are stand-alone modules that feed from the menu lists created in the Menu Manager and display them using their own style (CSS 3) and optionally jQuery/Javascript. I made these two menus as default examples. They are LTR and RTL ready and have two themes, light or dark (matching the Custom Footer) and can also use 30+ basic colours too.

The choice of Menu Modules is not limited in anyway!

You can make your own Menu Module with your own colours, styles and scripts. It can be anything, horizontal, vertical, ticker, dots, carousel ... anything! Which ever module you choose it simply needs to get the data from the Menu Manager. Et voila!

I believe that these custom features makes OCE better than the rest and gives developers and website owners the tools to make their shop standout.

If you have any questions about the Menu System in OCE, feel free to post below.

Thank you for reading.

  Yahoo Finance gone?
Posted by: villagedefrance - 01-15-2018, 04:45 PM - Forum: General Support - Replies (6)

Hi guys,

It looks like we have a problem Sad 
Yahoo Finance is no more it seems and the store currency rates are not being updated like before.

This is the thread on the OC Forum: Currencies not updating
The ECB and Google are now the only options left, but both are far from being as reliable as Yahoo Finance.
The ECB is only European and Google only accept 1 currency at the time.

I am going to try to come-up with a way to fix this, but I would appreciate some help.
If you encounter a PHP script for updating currencies in your browsing travels, please share it.
... or if you happen to have a custom script of your own that you are happy to see implemented in OCE, let me know.

This is an essential part of any shopping cart using multi-currencies so we MUST find an answer.

Thank you.

  New french law against VAT fraud
Posted by: gob33 - 01-11-2018, 02:36 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

For short, starting 2018, a new french law oblige french merchants to use a software that meets the requirements of inalterability, security, preservation and archiving of data for control by the french tax administration.

This applies to e-commerce softwares.

All important records (orders, invoices) must be made inalterable, secured, journaled, archived.

The management software itself must be then certified NF525 by two organizations accredited to deliver a registered certificate.
The process is complex and expensive (~30.000 EUR)

From January 1, 2018 the company is liable of a fine of 7 500 € per management software, accounting or cash system concerned, in case of a control by the DGFIP (Direction générale des Finances publiques).
The company then has 60 days to comply, otherwise the fine can be applied again.

So basicaly, all open source e-commerce softwares are illegal in France starting 2018 as they cant be certified to the sense of the law.

NOTE: A recent page in english describing the new law for french merchants.

I recently added a SSL certificate to my site. I altered the 2 config files and activated SSL on the server tab.  Everything appears to be working until I try to access the login page when I get a blank page and too many redirects.  Presumably this part of the overclocked version would be the same as the original so searching for causes there will point me in the right direction?

Any thoughts please.

I'm running version 1.8.4 (upgrading once I've got niggles like this out of the way)

Thank you.
