    Default Mobile Website Options for Oscmax

    We utilise a current html static mobile version for our Oscmax sites (ie point of contact only and sample products shown) however clients are now looking for solutions/options so their clients can actually browse and purchase their current products online via mobile phones utilising the current products that show on the desktop.

    Personally I wouldn't shop via a smart phone ( mobile phone) however clients think they need this option. I see there are a view threads around in regards to mobile sites however they do seem dated eg december 2012 and nothing concrete seems decided.

    Question: Is there a mobile option that anyone is currently using successfully with the standard OSCMAX or an option that redirects automatically to a new mobile theme utilizing the current database with the ability to browse and purchase products online as per oscmax configurations.

    Look forward to any assistance.

    kind Regards
    Giga

    Even though I'm not a mobile person myself (in more ways than one), I have actually been thinking on this subject. I'm a fair bit along this road but more pressing matters are slowing progress..

    Thank you Ridexbuilder for your prompt response.

    Like you I too am not a mobile person (at least buying and surfing the net ) prefering a tablet or desktop however, it would appear that this is something that more and more people are looking at and or require. I feel that Oscmax and its community needs to look at providing an option for mobile phones and purchasing via mobile phones to keep up with the other shopping cart competition. They seem all to have this option. Unfortunately I am technically challenged otherwise I myself would try to contribute.

    Your online store - mobile version : looks great however obviously as you stated a little ways from being completed. -

    Has anyone successfully installed and utilised the following:
    oscommerce addon osCommerce Community Add-Ons or this Mobile OSCommerce | CSS-OSCommerce

    Thanks again - look forward to your responses.

    Regards
    Giga

    Hey Ridex or others who have implemented mobile into their Oscmax. Did you use the IOSC contribution or are there any other alternatives? Like so many shop owners I am considering adding mobile to our shop but I would like to gather a little intel before I get to work. With so many addons included in the awesome oscMax I mostly want to find out what is out there that works with the least amount of headache.

    Thanks!

    The link that I gave uses "IOSC" contribution but my concern is with the ongoing maintenance of that particular project.
    There is an impetus on using bootstrap for osCommerce and we (PGM & I) have begun to put together something but is currently stalled.
    Server-side issues have worn/are wearing me out for now but I hope to return to this very soon.

    If Michael_S could return to the fold, after such a long absence, then we may be able to work from a more stable base i.e. osCmax 2.5.4 (official). His input and steering would really help. If all the community could give him a shout, then perhaps, just perhaps he could find some time.

    Seems like he just can't be bothered anymore. Which is an issue when there is only one person in control of everything.

    Guys, pgmarshall is now handling the release of 2.5.4 (which looks to be posted live already) and he has my backing to continue development as he, you and the community see fit. He has the same ability to publish releases and package them up as I do and full access in the svn repository to create branches, tags and export packages.

    Regarding not responding on twitter, I felt it was inappropriate to open a discussion with a 140 character limit with someone other than Giles. I wanted to contact him directly and have a more in depth discussion regarding my status and handling osCmax.

    I know I have been absent for good while, and it is not by choice. I do apologize, but hopefully this will keep things moving in a positive direction. I appreciate the patience!
    Michael Sasek

    osCmax 2.5.4 is now available via auto-installation using Softaculous!

    Thumbs up Re: Mobile Website Options for Oscmax

    Wow! Fell off my seat there.
    Just as well that I packaged it all up then.

    Pick yourself up Ridex! Dust yourself off!

    Your work on 2.5.4u was invaluable and we need to keep driving this project forward. I have put a fair amount of work into a BootStrap template but have slightly side tracked by the need to provide the solution as a stand alone sales order app on a Windows 8.1 tablet - works a treat by the way - no need to pay HandShake $70 per month ... anyway more about that later when I have it finished.

    We still need to get 2.5.4 upgrade only out there and then I can release the work I have been doing on making more of the content part of BTS.

    I would just like to keep this project alive and current ...

    All the best to all
