  • OpenCart Upgrade - Cruising Electronics

    Don was quite capable at configuring opencart, but was aware that his version was getting old. At that time, v2 of opencart was circulating but it seemed still too new to adopt for this site. This was probably over-cautious and if there had been "must have" features we would have explored the possibility further. I wanted to be careful to have a smooth transiation and not to interrupt the running of the site for any length of time. So I cloned the site onto my laptop, and had a dry-run of everyt...

  • OpenCart, Thickbox image not displaying in IE

    I was using the JQuery v 1.3.2 which was bundled with opencart. The web has a few mentions of this problem, but they recommended tiny changes to the CSS and/or Js. I happily tried those but they didn't fix the problem.I noticed that the demos on the Thickbox web site worked for me, so I used their copy of JQuery which was a recent one. However.... (bah) then the tab display failed. The default tab (for the "Description") remained invisible until clicked. Very boring. So, on a hunch, I re...

  • Medipharma E-Commerce Sites

    Initially I planned to write these mostly with my own PHP plus a small open-source PHP tool for a shopping cart. However, almost by chance, I stumbled across PHP opencart. I was very fortunate to discover this great piece of kit. It is fantastic for the small and medium site which wants to present and sell products. I managed to get both sites built with very little bother in about six or seven working days. Out of the box, opencart has a reasonable array of options without making life very com...

  • Artspiration - Art E-Commerce site

    Some of the artwork is traditional media, but a lot is generated by software, including my bespoke applications. opencart was perfect for the showcase and handling purchases. It is an open-source PHP CMS. It uses a straightforward template system, easy to understand. I have found several cases where I wanted to make small customisations, and it has always been easy to locate the right spot to adjust. The "out of the box" W3C compliance is good, so helping to ensure consistent display across br...

  • E-commerce for Training System

    At very short notice, I got a complete e-commerce site running for a company selling online training. (Cannot be named for reasons of confidentiality). Again, I used the excellent opencart system written in PHP. I am always pleasantly surprised how this system accommodates so many requirements so quickly and reliably. In a short time we had loaded many training products, catered for tax and shipping in NZ, Australia and worldwide. We made 3 "stores", one for each zone, and all using one set of p...

  • OpenCart Zones

    For a customer I had to configure opencart zones (aka GeoZones) for all countries of the world, some 230+ in opencart by default, once you include the really pesky unmemorable ones. This meant matching countries to zones and making sure none got duplicated or missed. First off, I made my GeoZones: New Zealand (home ground), Australia, UK & Europe, South Pacific, East Asia & North America, and Rest of World (ROW).  Yes of course East Asia is not near North America... I think this is beca...

  • Dave's IT CV

    ... been very impressed by the ease of templating in Silverstripe, combined with bespoke database development, without being forbiddingly complicated. Earlier,  I was using PHP Zend Framework (ZF) for Colenso and Westpac. A few years ago I installed opencart ecommerce projects and implementing Paypal to manage online purchases for an educational software company. Prior to that, I was involved in two dollops of Paypal integration: for PharmaHealth I have created a Shopping Cart for online sal...
