Cart items sort order

20 May 2010 - 08:37 PM

The developers are adjusting the sort order of the shopping cart items so that the last item added is at the top (newest to oldest). I am curious what order most prefer - newest to oldest (last item on top) or oldest to newest (last item on bottom).


Categories added to the UserVoice/Ideas forum

30 April 2010 - 10:48 PM

The Ideas forum now has categories - you can assign a category when you create a new idea/suggestion. Hopefully, the category structure will help both customers and the developers to see related items and also to see what types of requests are most in-demand. I have assigned all the existing items with a category; please let me know if you see anything terribly miscategorized.

If you have not yet voted for anything, now is a great time to let the developers know what new features you would like to see in future releases. If you have voted and are out of points, enter your request in the "Wishlist & Feature Request" forum - I will be adding those items to the Ideas forum as time permits.


Should CS-Cart deliver a 2.0.15 update prior to version 2.1

17 April 2010 - 10:30 PM

zeke has posted that a beta of version 2.1 should be available in Mid-May. I am not sure how optimistic this ETA is but I wonder how others feel about having an interim 2.0.15 delivered ahead of 2.1.

There are currently about 25 patches in the Bug Tracker which have not been delivered in a production release. The most important of these fixes addresses a Paypal Express problem (http://forum.cs-cart...w&vbug_id=1860). There are another 7 bugs confirmed but not yet fixed and another dozen or so unconfirmed bugs

There is also a required change for Authorize.net which went into effect yesterday (4/16) and is required that all merchants be in compliance by 6/30/2010. This issue affects merchants who accept MasterCard or Discover (http://forum.cs-cart...ew&vbug_id=1861)

At first I was thinking that I do not really want a release before 2.1 but, after giving it more thought, I think it might be a good idea. I think that they should work at addressing as many bugs as they can in the next couple of weeks and then package them up for a release at the end of April/beginning of May. Then they can deliver a 2.1 beta late May or early June (using their same optimistic schedule).

I am curious what others think.


"Buy Together" needs major changes

12 April 2010 - 05:57 AM

Currently, if you use the "buy together" option, you are unable to change the options for any item except the primary item from the cart page (checkout.cart).

More fundamentally, the "buy together" option is just not very functional. For instance, create a "Climacool bundle" with a 10% discount from the following demo data:
Adidas Mens ClimaCool Jacquard Argyle Polo   $54.95
Adidas Mens ClimaCool Mesh Polos             $49.95
Adidas Mens ClimaCool Short Sleeve Mock      $54.95

In the storefront, the primary item is displayed with the full bundle cost. This means that the $54.95 Jacquard Argyle Polo now shows a price of $143.85. This is confusing. "Buy together" needs to be implemented as a proper bundle where the item added to the cart is the bundle (e.g. "Climacool bundle $143.95) which then contains and displays the associated items at their discounted prices.

You also need to be able to adjust the options for the bundled items from the cart page.

Print packing slip by supplier

10 April 2010 - 11:51 PM

When the supplier addon is active, you should be able to specify the supplier and create a packing slip with only line items from that supplier.
