    I uploaded a new Prestools version: 1.24n. It contains a new version of the image plugin too. The new version fixes a few issues with image edit: - you could not add an image to a product that didn't have any images. - when you marked a newly added image as cover it wasn't registered as such. As a consequence the product ended with no cover and you didn't see an image in the backoffice product list. - when you made the image field editable and the cover image was not the first one it displayed on the first position the cover image too. The editing is now more wysiwig as it makes that you to always have an active cover product. If you find any more problems please let me know.

    @rubben1985 gave me access to his back office, so I had a look at the issue. Indeed there was some weird stuff going on. For example, cache was not flushed when you clicked on Clear cache in Performance tab. My investigation showed that this problem was caused by missing /cache/smarty/cache directory. Recreating this directory using ftp seems to fix the issue (pending confirmation from @rubben1985) Thirtybees codebase never checked existence of this directory, so this issue is hardly 1.1.x injection. But it's an issue nevertheless -- the system should recover from this situation. The fix is already committed in bleeding edge

    New: the Image Edit plugin. It enables you to add and remove images in the product-edit page. You can also change their order and choose the cover image. It looks like this: The "X" button allows you to delete. Right below is the field for the cover selection. You can add images both by clicking the add button and selecting a file and by drag-and-drop. Changing the order goes by drag-and-drop too. As usual in Prestools all changes are only implemented after you submit. When you add an image it is uploaded to a temp directory below your Prestools directory. When you submit it is moved below your /img directory. Image (re)generation of formats like 123-small_default.jpg does not take place. You will need to that separately in Prestools or the Thirty Bees backoffice. As usual with new modules this one will be free to download for a few days on this location. People who have bought the full Prestools package can just download the latest version. It is included there. Note that this will only work on Prestools 1.24l and newer.

    Hmm, why another fork? Wouldn't it be better to gather all forces and try make TB better instead of two different versions?

    These recommendations were discussed many times on the forum, for example this flame from two years ago. Unfortunately, not much was done in the last two years, other than code implementation. Stable and nice codebase is important, of course, but it's not what will attract users. When I look at the last two years, I see a lot of wasted opportunities. There should have been massive campaign to attract ps16 merchants when support for their platform was ending. There was none. Third party developers with ps16 modules should have been contacted, and some incentive should have been offered to them in return for maintaining their modules compatible. For example, their modules could have been highlighted in the 'modules' page in your back offices. Again, this didn't happen. And since then, most of these developers either completely migrated to ps17 platform, or quit the presta-world completely. And there are so many other things that could have been done. Instead, the platform stagnated. The only area that was worked on was codebase. And that just not enough. Two years ago, I wrote: I wonder how accurate builtwith.com data are - they track ~576 sites Now, this web tool tells us there are 509 active thirtybees sites. These two years should have been the best time for attracting new users. Instead, we lost some. This inactivity is what drove my decision to quit. I have no problems working for free on an open source platform. I have problems seeing this work being wasted. If the situation changes I might revert my decision. But I don't see how it could change, unfortunately. Also - I don't want to 'take over', as some of you suggested. While I'm flattered, I don't want to do that. I would really hate doing all those things that I've just complained above. I'd be terrible at that, I'm sure.

    I did some investigation, and this area is pretty fuc*ed up. There is a column total_paid_real in order table that tracks how much money was actually paid. This column has been deprecated for a very long time, because this information is primarily stored inside tb_order_payment table. However, for backwards compatibility reasons, this column is still there, and thirtybees tries to keep it in sync with records in tb_order_payment table. Needless to say, it does this very poorly. The issue I've mentioned in my previous post is just one problem. There are others, for example currency issues. Some code expects this column to be in shop currency, other code expects it to be in order currency, and this can lead to totally wrong amounts (apples and oranges added together) We need to fix this. The first item is to remove all *read* usages of this column from core. Core code should always use data retrieved from tb_order_payment, and not use this deprecated column at all. Then, we should fix all *write* usages, so modules that depends on this column continues to work. Unfortunately, even with all of these, we will still have consistency issues, only not so frequently. It's just not really possible to keep things in sync. For this, we should have some scheduled task that automatically fix the data. https://github.com/thirtybees/thirtybees/issues/1161

    I am generally very open about things with our community. Some people might not like the answers I have given at any given time, but I have always tried to be forthright with them. I am unsure where you recent hostility against me or thirty bees has come from. You contacted me last year about partnering on a project roll out. You asked several different questions / opinions and I told you what I thought. You mentioned you might want to invest in thirty bees, but never anything past that, until you contacted me a week or two ago just to tell me to fuck off basically. You were mad because your bug reports were not handled satisfactory. Here is the last conversation for the people reading and wondering. But yes, I am up for whatever works, as long as it works for our mission and our community. I am not up for scaling module prices based on how much business a shop is doing. I am not for selling code that thirty bees produces. From the start of this company / project those have been the values. I might not be capable of piloting the company or project much longer, but I am not going to turn it over to someone that will exploit the community. These people have been awesome to me and thirty bees over the last several years and I am trying my best to leave them in capable hands with my integrity intact.

    @datakick I was going to write you in private but I think this community deserves to give their opinion but also to know what others think too. I honestly think that you (and the rest of the actual actives contributors), should "take the the helm" and create the new staff. Without all of you (and specially you in the last months) there is not TB because community is great but we need someone more involved than standard merchants. Community growth around a solid core. I can understand Lesley is ill and we hope he will recover soon, but it is also true that we are in a professional environment and any project needs a leader. Why not you? You have been the leader anyway this last period. It can be at TB or a TB fork if necessary. I am not developer, but I am quite decent in management and marketing (that was always the biggest problem for TB growth). I would gladly give my inputs (there are so many easy things to fix in the communication and branding...), even collaborate with designers from my team for free. Not talking about intensive work, but more that testimonial, for sure. If you think about the possibility, I think could be an inflexion point in TB history

    I am not really part of this team. I don't have any shares and I am also not paid in any means. In fact I am a merchant that contributes more to this project than most others do. I have asked Lesley in private, how is it going and he didn't respond. So either he needs recovery time or he just doesn't want to talk about it. I understand, that you get a little nervous, when the initiator of the project is absent. On the other hand, you could use the time to improve your store or to contribute in some way. As I said in another thread: bleeding edge right now is stable like no other tb/ps software before. In general we (merchants) expect this project to go further. But we can not even find out together, what the most important todos are.

    @Smile I can understand the feeling of @wakabayashi and I suppose some others. What we hope for (i talk only for me but I have the intuition is the same for some others), was not only to tell us if you would continue with TB name or another one new, but what was going to change and what we could we expect from this new path. People has been waiting for these news a lot of months. Now a communicate to tell, TB is going to continue but wait again up to 2 month more to know the details.... The feeling is: ok... I know plans take time, but the plan I suppose (i hope) has been developedduring this time. I suppose, most of the changes and roadmap were not going to be alterate because of the name... why not to communicate them to the people? What is going to be the revenue business model? What is the draft of the roadmap (even if it changes)? is the new image/website has been prepared? when is going to be released?, What about people concerns about 1.6 limited in time compatibility?....

    No, it would not. It would be a huge step back - from seo perspective, from accessibility perspective,... Alt tags are very useful. If you really need them go away, you will have to edit your theme and remove them.

    Hi all, we have some news on the future of Thirty Bees! https://forum.thirtybees.com/topic/4194-thirty-bees-future-announcement/

    @datakick New Bug with TB 1.1.x and Panda: Got a strange new bug after I updated my 1.1.0 site with Panda to latest TB Bleeding edge: On Product list / Category page: For some reason the Left Column disappears when a Sub Category is selected. Main Categories are fine. I noticed that the var left_column_size is set to 0 instead of 3. Weird, as this worked before the update. Because I know the Left Column should always show on the Category page, I've created the following to 'fix' it, albeit temporarily. And obviously this isn't a real fix, as it doesn't address the cause. Just helps for now. <!-- /// No Left Column on Subcategory Fix /// --> {if $page_name == "category" && $left_column_size == 0} {assign var='left_column_size' value = 3} {/if} <!-- /// *** *** /// ---> Insert the code before: {if isset($left_column_size) && !empty($left_column_size)} Thought I'd point this out. I have notified @Jonny as well.

    @Traumflug There is also another thing. There are not many people wanting for TB to rise for one simple reason: Having to maintain compatibility for 2 shops. A lot of devs dream of 1.6 being put to rest (yes, they also hate Prestashop 1.6), as 1.7 takes over. Maintaining backward compatibility with 1.6 (and/or TB) is additional work. So basically it's not personally aimed at TB or you guys, it's aimed at lowering costs and maximizing income. Because of state of 1.7 I'm seriously thinking about changing my business model. I don't want to be held responsible by my clients for bugs in 1.7. Still, my clients I migrated to TB expect FROM ME modules for prestashop to work or fix them. Their mentality is like: "If I had Prestashop, it would surely work". So either I go on war with them or comply with their insane requests. It's a shame, but this brings a lot of regret to devs like you and me. PS: Also, when I recommend thirtybees and explain all differences, I'm being held responsible for recommending it to clients. Some people are insane, and blaming their decisions on others. And saying "Prestashop would be better". That's where "brand" part comes in.

    @Chandra you are mixing two things. The settings on Order Statuses has impact on 'Order Status Changed' email only (ie. Awaiting bank wire email) What you are talking about is the 'Order confirmation' email, and that has nothing to do with order status. This email is always sent, and it contains all current information available. I guess we could change the current semantics, and attach invoice to 'Order confirmation' email only if current order status has the send invoice checkbox enabled. However, I'm sure there would be plenty of merchants that would not want this behaviour by default.

    For hunting down small bugs (or my mistakes) I always have 3 installation of thirty bees on the server. All latest bleeding edge One is live, one is exact copy of live shop for testing, and 3rd is always the clean stock thirty bees installation. So if something does not work on live but it works on stock install, i can compare testing shop with clean stock, and make adjustments or fixes until it works 100% like stock. Only after that, I apply it to the real live shop.

    Hi. Yeah, but you don't need Warehouse 😀 Thankfully, one of the best and insanely feature rich and customisable PS themes, Panda, has been updated for TB and is actively maintained by the Theme developer @Jonny Which is great and it gives you the "AAA" quality theme that you need for TB that is actively maintained and updated.

    So I finally got this sussed! Go to Positions ->Click Paypal Modules and this brings up all the hooks associated with. Under DisplayFooterProduct, which hooks modules to the front office product page and this is where you unhook the Paypal module and it removes it from the product page! 😎

    I know this topic has already popped up multiple times. Still I believe it's very sad, that we have launched a crowdfunding project, which is almost not used. Who is using it on a live or teststore? Who wants to use it, but couldn't make it work? I followed the instructions on https://docs.thirtybees.com/native-modules/elastic-search/, but they are just too unclear to me. If I could make this work for myself, I would improve the docs and probably also the module.

    When someone wants to build a module from Prestools product-edit I would be happy to cooperate. The most popular mass edit module on Prestashop Addons (https://addons.prestashop.com/en/fast-mass-updates/19965-bulk-mass-editing-products.html) looks like it took quite a lot of inspiration from Prestools. If such a module was made both for Thirty Bees and Prestashop it could pay for itself. As I see it mass edit and cronjobs are areas that have a broad appeal and could help TB too. One of the latest additions to Prestools was image edit that allows you to add images by drag and drop. You need to generate thumbnails afterwards as otherwise it would take too much time. However, for Prestashop 1.7 that is not necessary as it generates its thumbnails on the fly. It might be a good things to have such a thing in Thirty Bees too. Also for mass import by csv. Many of the latest additions to Prestools concern maintainability: integrity checks and cleanup procedures. My main inspiration was that I had to deal with some old shops with quite a lot of decay. As I see it, such old shops should play some role in the discussion about stability.

    Gerade ist mir die Ankündigung auf der Bundespressekonferenz über den Weg gelaufen, ab Minute 1:50: https://www.jungundnaiv.de/2020/09/02/bundesregierung-fuer-desinteressierte-bpk-vom-2-september-2020/ Da werden unter anderem einige Änderungen im Steuerrecht vorgestellt, 2 Minuten lang. Darunter die Änderung, dass Plattformbetreiber in Zukunft für die Mehrwertsteuer haften, nicht mehr der tatsächliche Verkäufer. Das dürfte wohl für Shops eine Änderung bedeuten, die als Vermittlerplattform agieren, z.B. Amazon. Auch eine Änderung bezüglich der Steuererklärung. Die müsse man nicht mehr in jedem EU-Land einzeln erklären, sondern könne das alles in Deutschland machen. Allerdings war mir bislang keine Pflicht bewusst, in Frankreich, Polen oder Spanien Steuern zu erklären.

    I'm not sure, but maybe from Module -> Module position. Choose 'Block Image Slider' in 'show' dropdown, it will list where it is showing. I think you have to add a new hook in product page. (sorry if it's not a real answer, but some message is better than no message :)

    You need to change the third party module behaviour for how it injects itself into that page. "sort of" in the name was added because it does not work on native install without used override. Mixing third party hacks and modules can always bring out some issues 🙂 where both work when installed separately, but having issues if installed together.

    Yes, these are hard to catch. Usually a problem with one of the used Smarty templates or PHP code loading this template. First steps to find the issue includes finding a trigger to reproduce the problem. Which page to load to get another entry in the error log. Being able to reproduce a problem is the key to fix it. Did you perhaps edit templates? Replace them temporarily with their originals to find out whether this changes something. Another fairly simple procedure is to disable overrides. Does this remove the log report? Then the problem is triggered by one of the overrides. Next step would be to disable modules until the log entry vanishes. This narrows down the problem to just this module. Bug hunting is much like one of these early adventure games, where one had to look here and look there, collecting hints and ask questions in order to find the door to the next room. Then going on to the next room, finding more hints and more doors. At the end there is the glorious last room, where fixing just a typo magically morphs an error log entry into a newly appearing feature. There are more expert procedures, of course, like injecting PHP debugging code or attaching a debugger. For those which feel comfortable with it. Still the same kind of adventure game, just a bit faster.

    I think there will be an official announcement soon. We are almost at the end of the contract negotiations, there are just two points left in the whole contract. They should be cleared up by early next week and we can start preparing to make an official announcement about things. So progress is being made and it is moving forward.

    moin zusammen. auf das Risiko, dass dieses Problem bereits lange gelöst ist. 🙂 Für mich sieht das nach ner Kleinigkeit im CSS-Code aus. Soll heissen: Das FAQ-Modul möchte einen breiteren Rahmen zur Anzeige nutzen, als das Theme an der Stelle vorsieht/erlaubt. Ich würde da mit den Webdevelopertools der meistren Browser mir mal den Bereich näher ansehen und feststellen, welcher Parameter, welche Abmessung da zu groß ist. die meisten Tools erlaubern auch das ausprobieren anderer Werte uns sagen Dir auch, in welcher Datei du die Ampassungen vornehmen muss. in diesem Sinne Viele Grüße Klaus / Lockesoft

    Correct. We switched back to standard and all is ok. Just means customers can’t add card details directly on the website, but on reflection because of PCI compliance was probably better for us anyway.

    No. That's nothing critical, as its only related to "Advanced Parameters/Email/Email subject template" field, which is missing "[{shop_name}] {subject}". You have to add it manually. Now after upgrade, install core updater, update to latest bleeding edge. Apply fixes in Core Updater / Database schema (for developers) (second tab) Install Datakick consistency check module and check with that. Than you are ready to go. It's always good that you do all the upgrades and fixes on spare copy of your live shop, so you can check if everything works as it should.

    Hello @datakick It's really sad to read this 😭 I don't know, what this means for the project (maybe the end), but I understand your decision. It's really not up to you alone, to drive this project forward. I want to thank you a lot for your work/time, that you invested for free! I learnt so much from you! 👍 Are you leaving ecommerce as a whole or are you still coding modules and doing customize jobs? Regards Emanuel

    To add a technical datapoint: page caching of any kind can only cache the HTML part of the page, the initial page load. That's where all the PHP voodoo gets executed. All the stuff after that initial page load, CSS, JS, images, whatever, isn't subject to page caching, no matter how it's configured. And one can easily measure how long this initial page load takes. Instrument #1: use Curl on the command line. Like: time curl https://librairiezbookstore.com/ Instrument #2: browser's developer console. Open it, click on the 'Networking' tab, then reload the page. This generates a list of all the resources loaded, look at the very first one. It should report loading time. With both instruments I get between 540 milliseconds and 590 Milliseconds on librairiezbookstore.com. That's what one can gain. Very good setups take like 350 milliseconds, so even the best imaginable page caching could never improve page loading performance by more than 0.2 seconds. If one sees more improvements for the complete page load, it's the result of content no longer displaying.

    Who cares if it is late a few weeks? It is a small, dedicated team. I would rather it be late than buggy. Worst comes to worst, you can always painlessly experiment with the 1.1.x version. We are getting more than I ever got under the old model. I can be patient. I would rather have something that works than a mountain of hidden bugs like we used to get... The team here has its heart in the right place. They are responsible and meticulous. I am willing to be patient. They will let us know when they are ready for prime time.

    @30knees this actually got me thinking about combination selection. I come up with the idea of having some sort of intermediate page for products with combinations (well, some of them). If customer clicks on product, this page would be displayed instead of standard product page. It would work somehow like category, showing all combinations within product. One attribute could be primary to let visitor quickly decide on some main characteristics, in your use case it could be gel or capsules. If he click on any of this, standard product page with pre-selected attribute would open. Or he could scroll down and see all possible variants of the product. Something like this: This flow could be interesting for some products I believe. And it shouldn't be that hard to implement as a module. Just a morning brainstorming session to get me started my week :)
