Hi there fellow members,
I need to say something that is in my mind since 3.x appear, [color=#808080]at the beginning i was a little disappointing with the 960 grid, i was thinking that i will stock into 960grid but is for from the trough, as a developer and i must say that i developed allot of stores and not only stores with cs-cart but i don’t make even one update because is allot of custom code in there and an update will break the skin,[/color] so coming back to my proposal, why don’t cs-cart company try to distribute a [color=#ff0000]FREE cms CS-CMS[/color] for example, is not more than a week off work, just remove, orders, products, categories, promotions and everything is connected to shop, you only need pages and maybe create an addon that can add images to pages and have a pages list and the rest developers will do and so [color=#ff0000]the community will grow[/color].
The developers will love the cms and they will start to develop addons for cms and also for cart and if one of them to have a button [ UPDATE TO CS-Cart - $345 ] and update to that a full shopping cart, here is more work to do depend on how you remove cart at the beginning.
- more developers
- great stuff to add on shopping cart
- bigger community
- can be o great competitor to WordPress and Joomla
- skin has to be compatible from version to version like WordPress and Joomla
- maybe is a different target for the company
I love CS-Cart engine core and hooks sow why don’t increase community with a totality free version, is already/almost very well documented but for the shopping cart i can understand that is a marketing decision, because money are coming from the support and is normal?
[color=#ff0000]BTW: I love CS-Cart as a developer[/color]
Look forward to comments.
