So we now have an account with UserVoice, I have personally used them for a long time on another project and it is a great way of getting community ideas and seeing what the community thinks of them.

Click here to fee the OpenCart UserVoice site

I would like to point out some very clear rules about this.

Spam is automatically filtered, removed and you will be blocked - no one has love for spammers
Look for issues that are related / the same before you create a new one. If it exists add your suggestions and add votes!
VOTE on topics that benefit everyone, not topics that can/should be done as a 3rd party extension.
Please do not get offended if your suggestion is declined!
Be polite, do not troll people for making suggestions / having an opinion.
THIS IS NOT A SUPPORT SITE!
Unless it is a screen shot of an example, absolutely no web links allowed in the comments.

We are at the point where I believe that community input into improvements, features etc are vital. If a topic gets enough support I will review and pitch it to Daniel.

Why you should (or should not) install SSL certificate for your web site. After reading this good summary with pros and cons i decided i need it on my e-commerce sites.

 

Opencart has built-in support for redirecting pages to https, so some tasks listed in cons will not be hard.

 

If you decide to have one, you may get it as cheap as 6€/year from http://partneris.lv

Hew SEO strategies again? It means that you can work on your site's SEO forever :) Sometimes i think - you just need to provide the content on your site just as if were you would like to use it yourself... The best possible way, in very good language (very good language also uses synonims). For that you need to have a real skills in writing (or outsorce them) :)

 

Would be great, if someone could tell where to find info about languages other than English. Is Google really doing the same for all languages at once?

To stop the fraud we developed a click fraud tool that monitors your online advertising and alerts you to fraudulent activity.  As we scale our tool we’re inviting new businesses to join on a rolling basis. If you’re interested in trying the tool you can add yourself to the queue here:https://fruition.net/click-fraud/
