    You do bring up an interesting point though; templatisation. Particularly template switching - do Stores really change their look enough to warrant this ? That's a genuine question as the same is asked at the other forum..

    Totally off-topic, so answered on the other forum.

    It is not the ability to switch template but the ability to apply a template to a bare bones store that is key.

    Using BTS my live store looks nothing like basic osCmax but the framework allows me the flexibility to provide a completely customised front end.

    Without a Templating System osCommerce is useless - all stores are bound to look the same or takes ages to customise ... v2.4 out of the box looks shocking ... this is why all the template stores do so well making rubbish that doesn't work but looks good.

    The overall goal is to provide solid functionality to non-technical users within a templated store to allow them to purchase a "look and feel" they like.

    Anyway - that is my 2ps worth and since Ridex said "topic closed" I should shut up now!

    Regards,
    pgmarshall

    Now, back on topic...

    Has there still been no sign of Michael_S?

    Maybe its just me but it seems kind of strange that he would just cold turkey walk away from oscmax.

    A couple of weeks ago, he got in touch to say he'd be back but I reckon it was his ghost.

    Still no sign from Michael_S?

    I am still getting requests for donations from his account. Where would said donations go at this point?

    Nope.

    Those emails (like the osC latest contributions on the forum) will be automated. Given the increase in spam appearing here, then it looks as though little maintenance is being done to the forum too. If you still wish to contribute to the upkeep of the forum, then that is of course, up to you.

    I would really like Michael_S to resurface and help release 2.5.4 officially ... or at least hand over the keys for someone else to do it!

    I have put hundreds of hours of work into osCmax (partially for my own store) and I would hate to fork off on my own project ... especially given the work I am doing on BootStrap.
