I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  2. Automatic OpenCart update mechanism

    A WordPress-like one-click update from Dashboard would make OpenCart much more popular, and keep more stores relatively up-to-date.

    Naturally, this should come with compatibility check, fault-detection and rollback.

    I think Prestashop has a feature like this.

  3. SEO, EASY PRODUCT EDIT, Category Tree

    1) SEO

    We really need a SEO addon by default with options like these

    Product SEO URL format: Category-name/sub-category-name/product-name
    Category SEO URL format: Parent-Category/Category/page2/
    Page SEO URL format: parentpage/page/
    Other SEO URL format: /item
    Use single URL for all languages: checkbox

    Product EDIT:

    We should be able to easily edit product name, price, list price, and quantity right from product page on admin panel instead of going through each product to edit those things.

    Category Tree

    Instead of auto complete category name we should have the actual list of all categories presented to us instead of autocomplete.

  5. Have a built-in import export tool

    Every store has products, prices and clients. Easy ways to import and export them seems like a basic necessity

  6. Multilingual SEO URLs

    OpenCart should allow
    - Switching language via URL
    - Making default route URL's prettier
    - Changes default common/home URL's to default to just /
    - add language specific SEO-keywords to all products, categories, information pages and manufacturers

    So, URLs take the form
    http://domain.com/shop/en/english-seo-keywords-for-product

    In fact, Jay Gilford's multilingual URL bundle is pretty awesome. http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=7180

    Please include that in core. With Jay's blessings, of course.

    Tracking / consignment handling can be done many different ways. We will review this option later and consider the options, ideally it would integrate with the shipping gateways API’s if possible.

  8. Multilingual Reviews

    Sites that offer reviews across countries have dealt with and resolved the issue of multilingual reviews in a pretty good way - show reviews in current language on top before showing reviews in other languages. http://www.tripadvisor.com.sg/Hotel_Review-g274887-d1185721-Reviews-Firstapartments_Inn_City_Center-Budapest_Central_Hungary.html

  9. 301 redirection on old url alias

    When you edit the SEO url alias of a product, category or manufacturer, it will be great if the old one were not deleted from the database but just pointing to the new url.

    So if a search engine looks the url it save, it will not lead on a 404 error page but on the new url threw a 301 redirection.

  10. Bulk Product Edit

    Bulk Product Edit

    We should be able to edit multiple products at once

    For example select about 100 products and click on edit button to edit prices, product name, categories, sku, shipping, details etc

  12. Amazon-like "You Save"

    Savings are important for customers. Showing only the old price and new is not enough as it requires customers to make mental calculations as to how much they are saving.
    Amazon understands this - that's why it shows the savings separately http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CX5P8FC/ref=br_imp_ara-1/179-1035819-2800748?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-hero-1&pf_rd_r=0YFM6R2R090AJAR40480&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=2039920302&pf_rd_i=desktop

    This is useful for many OpenCart installs as evidenced from my popular extension
    http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=8319

    I have already written the code and submitted a pull request that adds savings ($ and %) information below the price on the product page if a valid special price exists for the product.

  15. Add option to set languages and currencies per store

    At the moment, OpenCart offers Multilanguage, Multicurrency and Multistore. Awesome!

    Please add the option to restrict certain languages and currencies to certain stores.

    This would be particularly useful if, say, in Europe I want to have a store for each individual country in my target market of 5 countries, or in USA I want to offer Spanish store on one domain and English store on another.

  16. Product Bundles

    The possibility to create bundles of products. When you purchase a bundle, the qty is subtracted on each of the products in the bundle (but not the bundle itself). The price on the bundle should be calculated directly from the sub-products, or entered directly on the bundle itself. This could be a setting. In the cart, the bundled products could be displayed like options are displayed today.

  17. Hide admin menu options user don't have permission to use

    This is basic to create a good interface, easy to users understanding what they can do in admin panel. So why show every option and then tell user he doesn't have permission to see that page? Just remove this link if the user can't access it.

    A simple solution here is creating a library to control the menu and some functions to mount the menu before show it and the library checks every option to determine what to show on screen accordingly to user permissions.

  18. Translation engine

    The way OC handle language files is very poor, like the code above you need to set the texts manually one by one. Why not use Gettext or another solution more simple and automated. By the way, many parts of OC could be better automated, to do not repeat code.

    $this->language->load('account/account');
    $this->data['heading_title'] = $this->language->get('heading_title');
    $this->data['text_my_account'] = $this->language->get('text_my_account');
    $this->data['text_my_orders'] = $this->language->get('text_my_orders');
    $this->data['text_my_newsletter'] = $this->language->get('text_my_newsletter');

    OC has been starting to use Crowdin to manage language packages. It’s usage has not yet been adopted properly but it is being done.

    The latest version of OC language library will also contains a method called all() which will return all language strings loaded.

  19. Show total savings on checkout.

    The ability to show savings NOT ONLY on product page but ALSO be calculated during the checkout process. I don't think I need to go in why this is so important, as I am sure we are all aware of the importance of showing a customer the money they are saving by purchasing now and through you does for increased sales.

    Example:
    SUB TOTAL: 224.99
    TOTAL SAVINGS: -34.99
    TOTAL: 190.00

    The majority of every major brick and mortar retailer shows the total savings either before and/or after the sale (on the receipt) for a reason. It should be one of…
