  1. Multiple Manufacturers per product and manufacturer categories

    For my industry it is absolutely essential - a customer needs to be able to look up a manufacturer or brand and see the associated drill down categories under that manufacturer (Manufacturer Mapping) so in other words 1 product could have more than one manufacturer or category associated with it - see Smartstore.net or NOPcommerce to see how this works

    • Add cache control and gzip compression in htaccess

      Add cache control and gzip compression in htaccess
      I don't understand why this is not included by default, due it's easy to implement and have a good impact, but for notice this you need to research by yourself about compression, cache headers....
      suggestion -> add this by default

      • SVG support

        I think it's a great time to include supporting of SVG inside core of OpenCart. Why?

        1. All modern browsers supporting SVG;
        2. SVG can solve issues images blurring on Hi DPI;
        3. All you need todo that - allow filemanager upload and use svg file.

          • Why does 3.0+ information text appear all on one line in code view?

            PLEASE put it back like it was so that lines of text on the front end also appear as lines of text in the Code View. One line of code is an absolute nightmare trying to edit, add, or make a change.

            • More streamlined image manager in Version 3

              Getting ready to begin a project that has nearly 5000 products. The current image manager is slow and doesn't list the products in order. Search is also case sensitive which makes it really hard to find things.

              • Headlines, better SEO, better UX

                Hello,

                can you please add input for <h1> headline?
                In example case you want:

                - title for menu
                - another title for <h1>
                - another title for <title>

                I think that this three types of title are really good have.

                I posted it on github yet, but Daniel don't want discuss about anything :) https://github.com/opencart/opencart/issues/5737

                • Shortcodes

                  Hi,

                  I want place some my dynamic content only to the one information page (I have multisite etc).
                  How can I do it without iframe? I think that great thing in this case are shortcodes.

                  Can you, please, look on this solution: https://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=marketplace/extension/info&extension_id=15550 and think about something like this to official install?

                  • Big refactoring of backend code, make opencart code modern for developers!

                    Missing things:
                    - Dependency Injection
                    - Managing extension and core via composer (no 3rd party code in developer's GIT repository)
                    - Database migrations solution
                    - Forms solution like https://github.com/nette/forms
                    - CLI management (migrations, generating dummy products, cron jobs, ..., custom commands)
                    - Cron job system, something like crontab with events
                    - Caching solution
                    - Abstract database layer for using another drivers than mysql, comfortable and allway secured queries

                    Think more about future, backend developers.

                    • Mod clear/refresh button in main menu bar

                      It is a pain to always have to go back to modifications and use the clear/refresh buttons there. I would love to see these buttons moved to be always visible say in the main menu bar next to your profile so you could click on them no matter which sub menu you are in.

                        • Make recurring profiles relative (%) and keep add to basket for normal price

                          I really like the option to use recurring profiles. But they depend on the product price and now I have to make all kinds of variations of these profiles as they differ per product. Would be easier to have for example a percentage?

                          Also if recurring profiles are being used, I'd still to have the option to just buy the product at normal price, but when activated now I always have to use a priceplan (can't it just be both?)

                          • Optionally go to shopping cart page after add to cart

                            Right now, the add to cart action keeps you on the same page. Some shopowners may prefer to redirect to the shopping cart page instead. This has been done as an extension several times, but keeps breaking with new releases of OpenCart. Perhaps adding it to the core would be a worthwhile project.

                            • Regex Search with Add after OR before

                              if we want to add our codes after OR before many lines e.g. :
                              $this->load->language('(catalog|soconfig)/(mvd_|vdi_|m|)product
                              this regex search working in vQmod and the XML file is very small and same code will be after OR before each of:

                              $this->load->language(catalog/mvd_product
                              $this->load->language(catalog/vdi_product
                              $this->load->language(catalog/mproduct
                              $this->load->language(catalog/product

                              in many files, in vQMOD it's easy ! but we would like to make OCMOD as much easy as vQMOD.
                              you know in vQMOD the modification like that will be maximum 20 lines (depend on module function), one file name (file path) tag , one search tag, one add tag . The advantage is…

                                I'm not sure if OC is supposed to be for non-techies, or coding noobs - I thought that was one of the original intents but I could be wrong. I'm on a non-techie. From my perspective, the biggest problem is that almost every time I run into a problem, I can search for hours to find answers and usually don't. It's incredibly frustrating, and I've almost quit OC altogether. I don't know if there are others like me out there, which obviously determines what happens with this idea.

                                In my opinion, developers are the heart and soul of this or…

                                • API IP addresses to support ranges

                                  The IP address list needs to also support ranges instead of only singular IP addresses. e.g. xxx.xxx.xxx.0/28

                                  It's really not always practical to have to list every address individually when connected from a pool of servers.

                                  • API List orders (filtered by date and/or status)

                                    It appears the API is very limited in functionality. Being able to list orders (ideally filtered by date and/or status) would be extremely useful.

                                    Currently the only way to get the orders via the API is to request one order at a time by ID (route api/order/info) starting with ID 1 and incrementing until you hit a 404 and hope no IDs have been skipped or deleted. And to keep doing that every time you poll the API, not a good solution.

                                    • API List order items

                                      Being able to get the info of an order without any details about what was actually ordered is currently not of much use. Need to also be able to get the product and quantity via the API.

                                      • API Get product info

                                        It would be good to be able to get some basic product information via the API, in particular SKU and MPN are of interest but other fields would be good too.

                                          Post instructions for modifying config.php files in the documentation to get site to run by using SSL. There is no help for this in documentation or in the forum. i found at least five different versions of how to do this, none of which worked on my site. Clear, specific instructions would be greatly appreciated.
