I don't think so. I did look at it. I have asked the author how the invoice looks. This is the most important issue for me. I searched the Marketplace for 'combining products' and similar searches. From reading his reply to another user it looks, that the invoice is NOT the way I want it to be.
PS. Here PrestaShop wins ;-)

Try load controller file in footer.php file. The code like this :
$data['name_module'] = $this->load->controller('extension/module/name_module');

We are having intermittent issues with checkouts.

Problem #1:
1. Customer makes an order.
2. Customer makes second order.
3. Second order has same items and total and first order. Date, time, order # is all different.

Problem #2:
1. Customer makes an order.
2. Extra items are present in orders.

How can I fix these issues?

I find myself constantly questioning my decision and why I don't just join the rest of them and move to Magento.

Is OC not fulfilling your needs? What specific issues (besides version release frequency) do you have with OC?

I come from another framework where we have a new version release every two months. Most developers are going away from the framework I come from simply because it is hard to keep up with changes, specially when those changes break plugins compatibility. I don't have a problem for upgrading versions (patch releases or security fixes).

IMHO, I believe the version release cycle for OC is fair and good.

I would like to ask how to create a webshop like this https://lilysfloristforster.com.au. Should I buy an extension? or can I find it for free? Any idea?

You could easily achieve that with OC and the Journal 2 extension

https://themeforest.net/item/journal-ad ... me/4260361

It also come now with 12 theme already installed. Chances are, that one of them would do already what you are after, out the box...

Díky za info. Rozhodně mi to pomůže při řešení problému. Nicméně již jednou jsem se obrátil na jejich podporu a nebyl jsem spokojen, takže jsem problém musel řešit jinak. Poslední dobou přemýšlím, že opustím od jejich jednostránkového řešení košíku, protože jsou s tím akorát problémy.

I've been a mijoshop developer and site builder for a long time... I've recently made the decision to move entirely to OC. However, I find myself constantly questioning my decision and why I don't just join the rest of them and move to Magento.
I notice that the last OC release is now coming up to 5 months old.

My concern is... am I investing in a framework that will never reach it's full potential? I love OC and what it can do... however if the project becomes stale, then it will die.
I feel that it needs a true OpenSource community behind it with more developers so that Daniel is not relied upon so much.

Ik heb enkele weken geleden OC volledig opnieuw geïnstalleerd in de hoop dat ik fouten uit mijn oude installatie kwijt zou raken.
Dat is gelukt maar nu heb ik nog meer (andere) fouten die zelfs nog lastiger zijn.

Zo is een van de fouten een steeds weer groeiende hoeveelheid afgebroken bestellingen terwijl er niets afgebroken wordt.
Ik heb (om Paypal te testen) drie bestellingen gedaan en afgebroken. Als ik dan bij afgebroken bestellingen ga kijken staan er meer dan twintig. Dat gebeurt ook bij klanten.
Mijn bestelnummers vliegen er doorheen en ook de administratie raakt verwart.

Wat kan hiervan de oorzaak zijn? Ik gebruik OC defaults maar heb de kleuren in de stylesheet aangepast. Dat kan toch nooit de oorzaak zijn?
Er zijn nog meer problemen maar laten we bij deze beginnen.

Wie kan / wil me helpen?
