View Full Version : Call for Mods : Have you hacked in a mod to your shop?

08-07-2004, 11:25 AM
Hello OSCmax usesrs. I am requesting mod submissions for OSCmax.

Have you hacked a mod into OSCmax that you think should be included in the next release? If you have, and are willing to contribute to OSCmax, please reply here.

These mods may be included in v1.8.


Your mod should be packed up in a zip file or tarball
Your package should only contain the files modified by your hack
You do not need to include instructions, unless you deem them necessary

If you are interested in contributing your mod to the cause, please PM me or reply to this message.

I am willing to give you the files for my one page checkout, I don,t know how useful it would be though and still needs some work. Would be a good mod to fix up as i have gotten some requests for this.

I am not sure what was done to the files as I had a programmer do it for me.

Let me know if you want to take a look at the files.

The site with the modded checkout is at

Sure, that would be a great addition. Zip the files and email them to me and I will see what I can do.

I've added 3 mods for Australian customers.
2 payment - BPay & Direct Bank Transfer
1 shipping - AusPost - uses Australian postcodes.

Would you like these from Down Under?

Ideas From the Deep has implemented many mods into our version of OSCMax, but we have not really been able to separate them out for contributions as of yet ... we keep meaning to, but something more urgent always seems to be happening :)

I would be happy to contribute what we have, but I would have to do so in a non-mod manner (ie, backup of site or similar). If this is of interest, let me know. (And, of course, I'd be happy to answer questions about what we've done... we have tried to comment most of our mods to some degree in prepping to release them.)

Some mods:

- order emails have email address in body and order # in title
- Instant serial # purchase (ie, for shareware titles)
- Multi-storefront store (ie, multiple stores with one inventory and one cart)
- Improved Shipping, Warranty & Returns, Privacy Notice, Conditions of Use, Contact Us
- Invoice # to AuthorizeNet to avoid "Non Qualified" surcharge
- Zip Code moved to US friendly location on entry/edit pages
- Default purchase method (ie, AuthNet, PayPal, etc.) auto-checked on payment page
- Do not show shipping page if total weight of products purchased is zero (ie, download)

I'm sure there is more as well.

I have just put another mod into my shop. It is so you have the product attributes listed under the product pictures on the product_listing.php file.

It is at www.fridgemags.com

Check it out and let me know if you would like this file.

Lane, if you want to pack up your shop into a tarball or zip, you can pm it to me or email it. I can do a file compare to find the files you changed. Thanks!

fridgemags - You know I do. Whenever you get a chance pack it up an pm me.

Thanks, and lets keep em coming :)

Ok I am still building my first site but I did make one fix that I made into a contrib and it was done using your MS2 MAX 1.5. It is a contrib that fixes a problem with typing in states in customer registration and address changing.

State Abbreviation fix:

Contribs I would like to see in the next version:

UltraPics - MS2 Image Addon Pack!:

Contribution "LinkPoint CardService International Payment Module":

All of these I find to be very useful, though the Image Pack is difficult to install correctly. My contrib is a very easy fix more or less. And the credit card module is useful for people whom already have credit card machines in there business. So what do you think???

i included installation instructions in the last linkpoint update for OSC-MAX. It takes me less than 3 minutes to install this module :) Maybe thats because we do it like 6 times a week for clients!

Merchant Partners / Pay Me Now payment module:


Recover cart sales:

PWA_0.82 for oscMAX1.7 (http://oscdox.com/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t-4262.html)

This is a working version of the How Did You Hear About Us Mod that was made for the normal oscommerce package. I have created new instructions with how i got it to work under max 1.7. It is tested and loaded on two shopping carts of mine.

Sorry i did not post this sooner like i said i would, been busy :)
