Ye, although you might want to make sure and wait for another commenter to confirm this as I am on the fence. Better yet, why don't you contact the iPage guys because they can give you help better...
Wow... seems we're collecting here ;-) I too came looking for the holy grail ;-) And while I am thrilled to find that there is a movement on a documentation project, I am almost paniced at the though of having to learn this very involved, but obviously well done script without current documentation. I am a web host and designer and well.... that's my job..
I have a video production background before THIS life and am now creating multimedia pubications (between contracts) for the PC. For example, I have a basic tutorial included in a small ap I have released for those who use cPanel. I won't post the link here, because this is no place to advertise.
But anyway, if you guys would like to start compiling some data in a very specific format for the purpose, in a month or so (I am currently booked til then...) I would be more than happy to create an EXE quickstart. What I will be doing is creating screen grabs of each area and embedding documentation for each area of the admin. Therefore, if we could have an area on this forum specific to this project, and post ONE thread per area/function, to be linked to the said function via hotspot over the screen grab, that would make the process go very smoothly....
MY knowledge of osCommerce at this point is next to nil... but after digging around in admin for the past two days, I can tell you that's gonna be temporary. This script is excellent and I fully intend to make it a full time addition to my bag of tricks..
Glad to have found both the script and this forum... A hefty THANK YOU goes out to the author(s) I'll be lurking as I can....
Just found the WIKI doc page. Wow.... great!!.
IF the author(s) and userbase still wish to eventually compile to exe as per above, please express your interest... and I would of course need permission to use the text found in the WIKI pages for such....
GREAT resource... and I breath a bit easier now too.
I for one would LOVE to see a very nice start-up wizard/tutorial for OSC. It's popularity is growning and I noticed Mambo is also making accomidations to integrate OSC in their product..
Please GO FOR IT!!!..
What I can do is edit the english language- that's me skill. Give me your pages of muddled instructions and I will try to make sense of them.....
Ok... well... If the WIKI project is to be the core of such a project, then we obviously need the permission of the owner... I am newbie round here, so I don't really know who that is (yet). Will the owner of WIKI please stand up.
As soon as we hear if this will be permitted or not permitted, we can take it from there. If the author would prefer, we can create the application to load the text directly from the web iPage site (from within the software as a browser object), this way the information would always be up to date... Of course including the information in the software would save on bandwidth though.....
It will be about three weeks to one month before I could start my end of the deal.. but we'll need at least that long to "story board" the product, obtain all necessary screen grabs, and if we won't be permitted to use the WIKI for this, write orginal copy.... etc..
I'll keep my ear to the ground on this one..
Melinda (modom) and/or Harald (hpdl) would be the "owners" of the Wiki project. Contact info is on the team page..
Thanks... I'll see if I can drop them a heads up for a reply here ;-).
Forgive me for jumping in here- I have been talking to Johnson, and I would like to offer my writing/editing services to the project..
I'd especially like to work on a basic modification how-to for newbies- in many ways I am still a newbie, and I am always looking for answers to basic questions. many a time I've found my answer over at that *other* site, you know- the one that offers a highly modified version for download. In the meantime, the forums here are overloaded with "how do I change the header image" posts. It's time we did something about that. If I can be of any service, PM and email me, please!.
Read my post below yours...could use some help with this re-organization...
