    Default 138 mods tested on 139

    Dont know if the Devs mind me posting this.. but then if they dont they can delete it or move it somewhere else as its not so much about 139 bugs or out.

    I have started testing Add-ons and although i have ONLY just installed and played... it might be helpful to some others out their that have no backbone (like me) when it comes to upgrading.

    ON a clean install of ZC139 the following mods seem to work just as well on 138a
    (in fact the sites seems a fair bit faster than a 138a.. but then that could just be excitement)

    Image Handler 2 - No problems as yet
    Zen Lightbox - No problems as yet
    Module Manager Revision 185 - No problems as yet
    JUst another Xsell Mod - No Problems as yet
    Category Dressing - No problem as yet ;clap;
    Display Inc/Ex Tax or VAT Prices - doesnt work properly (but then that could be me not installing it right?


    dont know about you lot but im at the gym at 6am and im funked... i will play more over the next few days and test the following

    Admin Profiles (kuroi)
    Ask a Question (SWGUY)
    Ez Pages Metatag Fields (Ebspromo)
    Simple Google ANALytics (EConcepts)
    Encrypted Master Password (Dennis Sayer)
    Login As Customer (Sid Smith)
    Edit Orders (Scott Turner)
    Invoice (SWGUY)
    Login Spruce Up (Tony Cradwick)
    Add customers from Admin (Crunch)
    BORED OF TYPING... LOADS MORE...

    Unless other already know the craic.. (god i have no life)

    tu'rar (geordie for goodbye)

    Funny - I *almost* created a thread like this myself.

    So far, for my stuff:
    - Quantity Discounts and Better Together both work with 1.3.9.

    Random question, but will it matter what order you install the mods in?

    for example, what if the mods work in the installation order MOD A, MOD B, MOD C, but don't work in the order MOD B, MOD C, MOD A.

    Does it matter which mods you build your 'foundation' with? or am I just being silly?

    Either way will work as long as you merge changes as you go. If mod A makes changes to the shopping cart template and so does mod B, you cannot simply copy the shopping cart template from mod A or mod B to your template directory - you have to merge the changes each one makes to your final file. A good rule of thumb is:

    a) If a file in a mod is a template file (override file), does it already exist in your cart? If so, merge the changes in.
    b) If a file in a mod is not a template file, does your cart already change this file? (Compare it with a fresh download to determine the answer.) If so, merge the changes.

    Keep a fresh, unmodified download somewhere on your computer for reference and use a comparison tool such as WinMerge. And always make a backup!

    Legitimate question. If two mods both alter the same file, then their versions of the file would have to be merged, no matter which order they were installed. If they don't interfere that way, it shouldn't matter.
    It is conceivable that there could be database changes that would make a difference, but if so, at least one of the mods will likely mention the dependency, or there will be discussion of it in its support thread.

    Yo..

    UPDATE
    i originally reported that:
    Display Inc/Ex Tax or VAT Prices - doesnt work properly (but then that could be me not installing it right?

    I am very pleased to say that it was me being rubbish again!

    All works great!!!
    (with one small tiny thing of Admin Setting * show price with TAX = FALSE *, Still shows the price with VAT on the product listing, but then that happened for me on 138a.. personally im over the moon.. If this is a sign of something bigger not working.. then im not bright enough to work that out)

    Shane, what config are you testing on?
    MySQL-version, PHP-version etc.
    Wondering because I'm running PHP5.3.1 and most add-ons I use I have to rewrite for getting it to work. It's easier to know which add-on is already compatible with php5.3

    Hi arjen,

    I never thought about that.. Here are the details for my server.

    Server OS: Linux 2.6.9-78.0.13.ELsmp
    Database: MySQL 5.0.67
    PHP Version: 5.2.9 (Zend: 2.2.0)

    so far, i have not come across any mods that dont seem to work, but i have only had the chance to try about 5 (in first post). I believe kuroi is having a far more indepth chat with someone about 138a mods running on PHP5.3... somewhere in this 1.3.9 BETA program feedback forum... (i think)

    What mods have you tried that have not worked on php5.3+ ?
