1 Little wish for VM3
« on: August 16, 2014, 15:09:24 pm »
Hi there,

5 little things I think could really improve VM3

1. Payment images in cart/checkout page (you guys added the shipping logo/image but I don't see any for the payments)
2. Changeable images based on custom fields (done)
3. Cart/Checkout page, I would suggest a re-style similar to OpenCart as it's easier and better for users (I'm happy to help out with this if needed)
4. Downloadable/service products (done)
5. Responsive captcha's and tables (especially the cart table as it doesn't fit mobile potrait, again happy to help out if needed)

I know you guys don't have much free time but I do implore you to consider making these changes as I'm sure they would help others and increase functionality. I have to say that VM3 already is a hell of a lot better than VM2 and with a few additional features I think it could easily be the best cart for Joomla.

Thanks,
Richard

2. Changeable images based on custom fields (say you sell a t-shirt and then a user changes colour to red then they should see red t-shirt)

all ready works with child products  (generic variants) - see http://test.gjcwebdesign.com/j2524/index.php/mister/tshirt-detail

4. Downloadable/service products (lots of people need this feature and I can't see it in the core, I may be missing something though)

this has always been a pay for extension in VM2 series

Very cool, didn't realize we already had interchangeable images with variants and a paid for downloads is good enough for me. The other 3 would be good to see in the core, do you agree?

3. So easy to style to whatever is required for the site. Most users either use an OPC or want a VM1.1 style checkout function - as now available on VM2.6.8

Down to 1 - I always add images in my payment modules - e.g. http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=120274.msg409686#msg409686
the code is there for plugins

I know I can add images either through php or css to the cart but in the core would be nice for other people.

Jenkhill, is this option also going to be available in VM3? I've not noticed any settings other than 1 page checkout. If so then yep it's down to 1 wish :)

Was thinking about the easiest way for making the checkout page table responsive and was thinking perhaps to hide the "Price:" field upon an @media max-width. What do you guys think?

It is in the core of the plugins api - other devs just have to use the code possibility that is there
