In Topic: How Can We Improve Cs-Cart?

20 October 2017 - 07:18 PM

You can only have both email and posted GC - these days I only want email GC. Could cscart give admin the option to use one or both.


I wanted to add explanations to customers about the fields to complete on the storefront  because I could see mistakes would happen.


eg To: (the name of the person you are sending the gC to)

From: (the name f the person or group sending the GC)


email (the email to send the gift certiciate to or send it to yourself and forward the GC on to the recipient)



Ideally I would like to add an image or a set of images for customers to choose from e.g. happybirthday, congratulations, thank you, merry xmas.


This could all be done with a single override file for the form and possible small extension to the controller.

I'm guessing you want to provide a different message in the GC based on what image the user clicked on for type of GC.

Feel free to click the link in my signature and provide requirements and I'll be happy to give you a quote.

In Topic: 4.2.3 Time To Upgrade, But Need Someone To Do

My five cents.

First of all there was a big work done to improve CS-Cart performance in 4.3.1 http://blog.cs-cart....art-4-3-1-beta/
And it's not a marketing stuff or something. We spent a lot of time on it, these result are real.

But not much in the past 2 years that is not related to underlying system stuff like PHP-7.

Also I worry about security, am I fine with my 4.2.3 version?  And finally I just need a fresh new look, my site looks like it was made in 1995  :-)

Not been many security updates other than the Google Recaptcha since your version.  And that can be applied as an addon.


Not sure you can blame the design issues on cs-cart.  Spend a couple hundred dollars to buy a nice theme and a front-end person to tweak it to your needs.  it should last you through many version upgrades if it's done right.


Consider the cost and learning curve of a new platform....
