A few questions about Thirty Bees from those interested in migration.

Recommended Posts

Hey,
I have a store with t-shirts printed on PS 1.6.0.9. The whole seems to have been around for a few years, but it's time to refresh the store. Because the store has various modifications in the code and no one remembers what and where it has been changed, we want to try a fresh installation. We were considering upgrading to PS 1.7 (looks cool, but a lot of disappointed people, and there were bugs right after the installation), PS 1.6 in the highest version (supposedly old, good 1.6, but has already treated us), and now I found Thirty Bees (looks nice, and I found information on the Internet that it's 1.6 pimped up) and I have a few questions. Unfortunately, the Polish internet lacks any meaningful information.
In our store we have about 5000 designs of t-shirts. Each shirt can be in women's or men's cut. In at least 7 colors. 6 sizes. And the pattern itself can have one of 10 colors of the print. A nightmare in the standard PS version. When we started after the introduction of 1000 designs, the database had enough and the store began to slow down dramatically, and the loading of the product took a lot longer.
Question 1. Does Thirty Bees use the same mechanism for creating and storing in the combination database as PS 1.6?
In PS 1.6 we solved this problem by buying the Attribute Wizard Pro module (a comprehensive solution to the problem of clogging the database with combinations). According to the manufacturer, it works with TB.
Question 2. Do PS 1.6 modules work with TB? Somewhere I saw information that I did, but I prefer to ask at the source.
For catalog management (products, categories and all the rest) we use external eMagicOne Store Manager for PS. I have sent a request for cooperation with TB and I am waiting for a reply.
Question 3. Do any of you have any experience with this program and TB?
Finally, question 4. Will there be documentation in Polish or a forum section in this language?
Regards
Michael

I can answer question 2. The good news is that it do work with TB. The bad news is that they have no plans officially supporting TB. Also they have blocked some features for 1.6 in their mobile app.

But the more we are who ask them to support this project the better.

@1 yes, the same one as in PS1.6, and the same one used by many SaaS e-ccomerce.

@4 what exactly would you like to have documented in Polish? don't get me wrong but software language is English, whenever we like it or not. Polish translation of thirty bees is still unfinished, but I'm trying to deal with that. probably there are a few active users in Poland so even if there is Polish subforum, you won't receive any response for a long time.

there are a few companies in Poland who make modules for presta, some of them even noticed existence of thirty bees and checked their modules to be working perfectly. but some of them are not interested in that, because they are busy enough making money on PS1.6 and PS1.7.

Regarding translations.

https://crowdin.com/project/thirty-bees

You can register there and start translating the language you use. To make approval of translated content you can ask moderators to give you rights for approval or I can approve the translated content if you are sure everything is as it shold be.

As far as I know, if only translated, but not approved, it will not be included in next thirty bees release.  I try keep my language always at 100%/100% (slovenian).

There is also a Crowdin module which you can use to make translations directly in store and translated strings are then automatically inserted into crowdin.com translations. Translations made with module are not meant for translating the store directly as they are not applied to the store - they only upload strings to crowdin.com

I usually translate on crowdin.com and than with the help of the Crowdin module I check how they look in live action, and apply changes if needed, so once language is in next release no fixes are needed.

So if you are doing polish translations, you should approve the translated parts.

I will do approving process when all texts are translated, glossary filled and so on. Most of actual thirty bees Polish translations come from PS1.6, which was build by various people during many years. it's full of inconsistencies and outdated therms which are not used in Polish e-commerce today. and not mentioning this politeness from English which should not be followed blindly but it is. this translation needs serious proofreading.

sorry for offtopic @viktorson.

No problem.

I agree on the translation of PS 1.6 I have made corrections there myself because some content seemed out of place to me.

Thank you for the answers.

As for the translations, my question was because I had no idea if there was anything in TB at all in Polish, and the necessity to translate the entire store was out of the question. After asking this question, I installed PS 1.6 and migrated it to TB. And all in all I learned that there is a PL translation.

Unfortunately, not all modules with PS 1.6 work in TB. I installed the top menu change module and TB broke (template) and did not help returning to the classic menu. So I managed to install and break TB within 15 minutes :).

@cienislaw

Did I understand correctly, are you from Poland? Do you work TB professionally or hoobistically?
