    Default e-commerce

    Hi All,

    I use NOB's shopping catalogue and find that it is much too slow to update
    It takes me at least 10 minutes to to open a catalogue page and 10 minutes
    to open the catalogue. So, to make a change it takes me 20 minutes just to
    get to the field, and it only allows for one image per item. That brings me
    to my question. Has anyone used Zen Cart with NOB or used it alone? Or, is
    there another way within NOB around this?

    I use Mal's as my store, and that works just fine.

    Thanks for your help,

    Barbara

    I've used NOF's cart for limited items and it never takes that long. It
    should load in a couple of seconds. . How many items do you have in the
    store?

    If you're going to use a third party shopping cart then you're going to have
    to build a template to match the NOF site (if you decide to have a NOF front
    end) and that could take a bit of jigging around. Not impossible and gets
    you involved with digging into the shopping cart software but (maybe) not
    for the faint hearted. Zencart is OK and works quite well. Depends on what
    you want. There are many engines like that but they all have their little
    differences in operation or appearance.

    Hi,

    I must have around 350 products and growing, with at least 20 catalogues.
    Is there an advantage to keep the NOF as the front end?

    Thanks for your help.

    I would think that may be the problem. You could try backing up your site as
    a template and then optimising it.

    The e-commerce engines generally come with a few templates and there are
    normally more that you can buy. It depends on whether you want a completely
    unique look to your store or are happy with it probably looking like a lot
    of others that use the same template as you.

    Hi Ian,

    Each time I tried to optimize it took forever and things got screwed up.
    It's too fragile and it didn't help much. I'll check out Zen cart, if it's
    not to difficult,
    Maybe I can now have some "zen" in my life.

    Thanks for you help,
