Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *

What id like to see

Front End

1) Send users a welcome email with an email confirmation link in it before there account becomes active

2) a 'Your Account' interface which includes the following:

2a) The ability for logged in users to be able to view there Order History(all there orders without having to put in each order number) and list these as pending and Shipped etc and once shipped i would like it to include the tracking number with a quik link to the website
2b) Ability for the user to change there e-mail address
2c) To be able to see there info such as billing/shipping address and then click another link to edit it instead of going straight to edit.
2d) To be able to change there password
2e) To be able to logout of there account

3) a small part somewhere on the template showing you are logged in and giving a welcome message.

4) To be able to select different shipping methods based on the total amount and the weight. eg recorded for under 30. Special for under 250 Special rate 2 for 250-1000 special rate 3 for order between 1000-2000. and then i have a table of the different weights and there prices which could be implemented into this.

6) Be able to create different user groups with different prices. in my business i run different prices for special customers etc

7) to be able to have a accept terms page before confirming the order

8) wieght in Kilograms for UK

9) be able to click a remove link on the basket for items

Admin end

1) For me to recieve a printable packing list once the order is placed
2) Intergrate Royal Mail Shipping for UK
3) Better products/Categories view where you can create a catergory then add the product to this category/sub category istead of having one option for products and one option for categories. instead of this product is displaied in there categories etc
4) being able to put my own logo and company slogan etc on the invoices for customers

Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *

It would be nice to develop a feature that automatically generates an order has shipped e-mail when completing the order in admin. Many times when I shop online this seems to be common practice. First I receive an order confirmation, then once the order has shipped I receive an e-mail with order tracking details as well as links in the e-mail to real time order tracking information.

Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *


I would recommend that you write a sniffer function in your cart code that, if CGI or Perl fuctionality is not achieved or is not accessible, it should Print a blanket statement saying... "Your server does not support CGI or Perl script", followed by whatever else gets spat-out on the screen when Perl is not working. And if the server "does" support it, and script processing is achieved, it will activate code to hide that statement. And once the cart is up and running, give the user the option, in the Admin interface of the cart, to turn off the CGI/Perl support sniffer function. This would sure help you guys trouble shoot whether Perl & CGI scripts can even run on the server that you are trying to provide support for. And it would be easy code to write. Just make it the first check point for the application when the page is loaded.

Pretty good idea ay?

Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *

How in the world do you expect to have a script run that checks if the server can run scripts or not. If Perl isn't working right or setup right on the server there is no way you can run a Perl script to have it check and see if Perl is working.

Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *

Well ... I agree and I disagree at the same time on this last subject. In order to do this, each ISP would have to give their support as well and not everyone will do so for third party scripts.

Also, it'd require each specific modules to call the server (since the 6.0 version will be done by specific modules for each users) and that could have an impact. If I hear otherwise, I'd like to know a better version of this if I'm wrong. smile

M J,

You aparently didn't read my posting correctly... I never said that a "" script will run the script support check.  Your forum meter says you're an "advanced" member.  If you are an actual programmer just think about it for a moment...  You could actually write a simple with "" variables that can call on a simple cgi or Perl process.  And "" the cgi or Perl process doesn't return the expected value "" print the results to the browser saying that CGI or Perl is not supported.  This would be quick and easy code that can be written and tested within a few hours, if a good development team were put to task.  And I mean a team of 2 or maybe 3 knowledgeable developers.  All standard browsers support the simple javascript calls that I'm referring to.  And yes, you can post request objects to CGI or Perl using Javascript.  I know these things because I used to develop for a large ISP called Bluestar.net.

Good programmers mix their platforms.  And it's good to do that as long as the platforms used are widely accepted and compatible.  And javascript is a standard and widely used tool.  Good programmers also think outside the box.

I've been doing this stuff too long to be shot down so easily...

See?  I'm not as silly as you thought huh?

Oh, and Scoutch,  this is a checking process that would have nothing to do with ISP support, other than the fact that a test script of this nature will immediately let you know whether or not the ISP is supporting Perl and CGI for that website.

Cheers,

DDemay

Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *

Please, let's not fight over this. To answer to your if statement strategy. If we apply a Javascript command to check the server, it won't have any garranty that  the information will be sent successfuly since it involves browser issues.

Meaning, if someone has Internet Explorer, another one has Netscape and finaly another who has : Opera or Mozilla ; it could have an impact in the language. Which is why, a module would be required in this case.

Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *

By all means, I'm not fighting at all.  I was simply responding to a challenge. 

.  It is my experience that there are simple and standard Javascript function calls that are definitely recognized by "all" browser platforms.  And I do mean "All"...  I've done extensive tests that have proven this.  You only get into trouble when you write complex processes using browser specific javascript code.  Things have come a long way since Explorer 3 and Netscape 4, 5, etc.

Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *

i dont know if anyones asked for this or not...
but it would be great if the email-a-friend form was in a seperate window and once a link was clicked on the product page, it would open in a popup wink
it would also be great if every product page could have a reviews section where only customers have the ability to comment on the product wink

built-in advanced search features would be very great too :! so that the user can specify and find exactly what theyre looking for within minutes.

thanks,
nabz

Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *

I'm not having a go at anyone nabz.  I've headed development teams and have experience with utilizing and knowing what resources are most optimal for web processes.  So if I've dented anyone's ego with my input, I'm sorry that interpretted it as an aggresive act. So lower your defence shield dude.

If anything you're the one striking out at me.  I haven't made any harsh statements toward Scoutch.  He has been trying to help me with another issue and he is very much appreciated by me.

My "Good programmers" opinion is merely my opinion.  If you are offended by that then I recommend you take a chill yourself and stop trying to pick a fight.

If you will recall, is the one who's comment was a challenge to my knowledge as a programmer.  And I was simply responding to his challenge. 

Scoutch, I opologize to you "and you alone" for the direction and misinterpretations from my input and suggestions on this subject.

Chill nabz!!

Apologize accepted but please, like I said, let's not post a 1000 opinions in the bad section of this forum. If you want to do so, go in the : Opinions section (the 2nd link of the forum intro page).

Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *

ddemay,

That sounds pretty cool. Sorry I was gone yesterday, I would have responded sooner.

I was wondering if there was something I was just missing, or if you were some noob that didn't know what he was talking about. So I figured if you were a noob it would shut you up, and if not you'd explain it better. On reading your first post I was having a lot of problems making any senese of what you were really talking about, and the second post cleared that up.

It sounds like you've either done this before or have a pretty good idea how to implement it. I myself have not spent much time with javascript, but I would be interested to see how something like this would work.

It would be nice if it was able to tell you if Perl was working, and then if it was, the Perl script tell you if certain modules were not installed.

If you need any help trying to get this done please let me know. You can always PM me.

Re: New Zuma Suggestions * Here *

Hello MJ,

It's all good..  thanks for your input..  If I ever get time to take a shot at writing a javascript object to do what I scoped out , I will post it.  But it's not likely in the near future because of work overload on my end.  I'm referring to the work in my sound studio, not programming tasks.  I figured writing that sort of module should be up to the CCP folks.  I'm not being paid...wink

But I will give suggestions for free..  lol!!

Oh, and Nabz...   no hard feeling bud.

anyways, i thought ddemay was actually angry when he was replying to your message because of your reply [bottom of message] :p
