SMFShop 3.0 now out!
« on: January 18, 2007, 06:58:06 pm »
I'm proud to annouce that SMFShop 3.0 is now out! The code has been cleaned up a lot, and it also has a few more features. All the features I listed in the Feature highlights in new version of SMFShop topic are present, along with a few more.

Changes in this release
Major:
 - Lots of code cleanup
 - Category support: You can now categorise your items
 - Permissions: You can disable access to the shop for certain membergroups
 - Bonuses per character and word: Give bonuses to a user depending on the number of characters or words in their post
 - Bank deposit/withdrawl fees
 - Option to not delete item after use: Great for items you'd like members to keep
 - When editing an item, you can now edit the item_info (custom info entered when adding the item)
 
Minor
 - Several minor formatting changes
 - Fixed problem with SMF 1.1's "Find Members" popup
 - Bold the current section on the left menu
 - In "10 Richest Members" list, have links to their profiles
 - When sending an item to someone, show an error if they don't exist
 - Allow floating point values for interest
 - And several other (minor things)... See the full changelog at http://server.daniel15.com/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/smfshop/trunk/svn_changelog.txt?revision=78

Download it from the DanSoft Australia site, as usual :).

Note that I didn't have much time to look for bugs. All the large bugs have been fixed, but there may be some smaller bugs (especially with the upgrade package). Please tell me if you encounter any problems ;)

I hope you enjoy this release, I spent ages on it :)
EDIT: Here's a nice Lines of Code graph (yes, I know release-2.3 is at the wrong date, that's my fault :P):

:D

Hi Daniel,
Congrats on the new launch but -
Here's an error I got when I tried to upgrade
9.     Execute Modification     ./Sources/ManagePermissions.php     Test failed
Also, I uninstalled my earlier SMF shop & tried the fresh install. Still I got the same result.

I've made a slight change to both the fresh install and upgrade packages, and the ManagePermissions.php edit should no longer fail. Please redownload the package, and try again.

Dan,

Outstanding software.  I really like the thought process behind it.

Not to critised your work, but I just saw a few things that might be beneficial to everyone.

Back End:
In Category Management, once a Category has been added, there's no way to change the Title.  No Edit function.  So basically I see it as, if you don't like the title and there are a lot of Items in that Category your SOL.  You have to make a new Category and then move "All" of the items in the old one to the new one.  Thus creating so much extra work.

Under the "Add/Edit/Delete" Items section when editing and item, the button is labeled "Edit" that saves the changes.  My thought is the change this to "Save Changes" or "Save" to conform to theme of the rest of your package.  Also a Cancel button that returns you to the "Add/Edit/Delete Items" section could be a great feature.

Front End:
Under "Shop Home" would it be possible to have the Categories Coded in between the "Welcome to" and the "10 Richest"?  Good Idea, bad idea?  I was thinking it might provoke shoppers to quickly look for a specific item.  I go on the less than 3 clicks theory.  It amounts to if they've got to make more than 3 clicks to find what they want, they loose interest.

Once in the "Buy Stuff" section.  I know it's possible in HTML Code, but when select a Category or one of the other sort features, this could automatically process/active that selection.  Versus pressing the "Go" button, it would just "do" your request.

I realize that this suggested would be a lot of code, but a Search feature would be awesome.  Put it over in the Shop Stuff window, it would search all entries, Name and Description for "Whatever".  That would be sweet.

EDIT:
Are user not supposed to be able to add in there own items?
END EDIT

Please don't take this the wrong way Dan.  I happen to enjoy it when people make suggestions to me about my web designs.

I do like your product, I wish I could emplement it as a real $$$ Shop.  Maybe I can, I'm just not seeing it.   But I'd love to have Paypal links for everyone to use or maybe a Pay with Cash option.

Anyway, thanks for the great product.

where do i get the original 2.3 package?

found the 2.3 download i had from before but says its not compatible with smf 1.1.1

all i want is to get the shop back. by upgrading i whacked my whole shop out. messed up the load.php and fixed that. when i try to go 3.0 fresh install it gives me a load of errors.

do you have 2.3 for 1.1.1 (i need to get back in business).

these are the 2 errors i get from 3.0 fresh:

11. Execute Modification ./Sources/RemoveTopic.php Test failed

15. Execute Modification ./Themes/default/Display.template.php Test failed

jdv, I'm not sure what could be going wrong for you, I successfully upgraded 4 test installations. Would you be able to try upgrading manually? If you upload the Upgrade package to http://server.daniel15.com/smf/package.php, you can see exactly what you need to do.
Old SMFShop versions are available here: http://www.dansoftaustralia.net/downloads/1/SMFShop.html

Sorry I can't help you more, but it's 2:00 AM here. I'll see if I can help you tommorow.

It's a sub template in Shop.template.php. Make sure that your Themes/default/Shop.template.php file was updated.

minfinger, thanks for your comments :)
