Haven't tried this version, but It's great that someone's put Zen Cart (the best) on to XOOPS.

Great Work Carlos!

Hi Carlos

looks great, well done

the links on your dev site are pointing to

Yes, it is nice to see XOOPS starting to integrate e-commerce. Great work.

Is there any way to integrate the XOOPS user dbase so people don't have to double register? Or is it already there and I have missed it?

is this yet another dead ecommerce project for xoops? or is it alive and well? i have been sifting through all the mess in the module repository and found this to be just about the only one that migth be worth using if its still supported? i too would like to know if a double log in is needed to run the zen cart.

seems very alive and well
not sure how long it took them to get out a upgraded release after the latest version of zencart
but was days rather than months

all works well, theme intergration
no dual login but not a showstopper to me

full credit to the devs of this, as one of modules that keeps XOOPS a worthwhile choice

I started to modify the 1.26d version of this module some time ago and added a few hacks to integrate this better with my site.

I haven't looked at this latest version, but added the unified login hack, plus some extras to enable the zencart user to be set up automatically on user registration on the site which involved some core file hacking. I also needed to change a few files so that if a user changes his password it is also changed in the zencart table.

I also added search to the module to return products if a user searches on terms including product name, description, etc.

If anyone is interested, I will post further details here of exactly what I've done.

Yes, please share the details. I would like to know the mods. YOu may also want to post on the developer's web site forum as others there may find it useful.

Thanks in advance for sharing.

Hi everyone.

I think its great that someone integrated Zen Cart with Xoops.

I am having a little problem though. When I go to my webpage it still has the login information and all other blocks from Xoops. When I tried to remove them, my webpage didn't have the XOOPS blocks anymore but my entire Zen cart was right aligned. I tried changing the alignment for the Zen Cart block under the "top page" under blocks but to no avail. Could you tell me how to get my zen cart to look just like the demo ( That would really be appreciated.

Thanks all in advance!

xadmin is OK -this works on frame in XOOPS administration ...

but bug is little in /xadmin/index.php (my vex. XOOPS 2.0.13) - in url you must add "/"

case "admin":
'<iframe id="glu" src="'.XOOPS_URL.'/modules/shop/admin/" height="600" width="100%" onload="resize_iframe()"></iframe>';

I would be careful using Zen Cart XOOPS Integration, because the version is outdated and vulnerable for attacks. The shop I installed was hacked pretty soon. So...
