    Default osCmax v2.5 Beta-1 Released

    A new blog entry has been added:

    [drupal=395]osCmax v2.5 Beta-1 Released[/drupal]

    <div class="posterous_autopost">Beta 1 of osCmax v2.5 was officially released Monday. This is a pre-release for testing, and while it is quite stable, it is not recommended production use just yet. After a few weeks of beta testing, if all goes well, v2.5 stable will be generally released for production. For those following development, you will notice that the version number has changed a bit from what we had been using. Due to the large amounts of changes to the code, we wanted to reflect that more accurately with our version number designation, thus the jump to v2.5.

    We encourage everyone to download the new version for testing, as it is a major change in osCmax and you will want to get familiar with all the new features and changes.

    All I have to say is WOW. Installed and testing and very impressed. This is going to give the base OSC and Cre a huge run for their money. This is what an e-commerce solution should be.

    Thank you

    Installation was easy. Nice job.
    However, I am new to osCmax. After installing all I see is a blank page. I modified mainpage.php through the admin panel, and I still only see a blank page. Something here is not very intuitive as I have yet to see how the storefront looks.
    Please help.

    I have a suggestion on the new products page. The are 2 ways to access the new products page from the default home page, one from the "What's new" box at the left column and one from the main content area where shows the latest products. When the "What's new" link or the" New Products for November" link or the arrows next to these links are clicked, it goes to index.php?new_products=1, the products are displayed as order by name. It doesn't make sense because I'm expecting to see the latest products but it shows the products from A-Z. It's better to display the products order by date. Anyway that I can change it?

    Yes - it can be changed.

    However, at the moment the code adds the sort order of date_added after the other sort orders. As such, the name overrides the date added - if you had two products with the same name they would be in date order.

    // Add new products limit and order
    if (isset($_GET['new_products']) && tep_not_null($_GET['new_products'])) {
    $listing_sql .= ", products_date_added";
    }
    It may be worth the development team adding "Latest products" to the drop down menu in the listing pages to allow them to be sorted by date on the fly ... if this was done then you can select the sort by passing the variable in the url.

    Have a look at the bottom section of the query build in catalog/index.php - it will depend on your comfort coding in PHP ...

    I just install the beta and so far this is what I found out:

    1. When clicking easypolulate in the admin section, the search tab bar on the top loses its tab.
    2. In Slideshow, It would be good if we can have upload button


    I'll update more on my finding soon

    Note: I had a series of problem but I soon found out that the my local server system is the culprit . I'm using Mac OS X Snow leopard with MAMP 1.9.4

    Don't forget to use the BugTraker so that we can keep track of any problems and fix these issues - I have added this one for you.

    Thanks for pointing it out.

    The blank page syndrome is addressed in the wiki and possibly in the installation process too.
