The site was badly hacked and had deeply imbedded malicious code that was going to cost more to remove than completely rebuild the site.

The good news is that we have had the opportunity to install the newest platform of Os-commerce 2.3.

We have added many new features like:

Shipping cost estimator - No need to create an account you can get a price every time you add a product by just hitting the "Shipping Estimate" button.

Post code look up - Speedier and more accurate account creation with this handy post code look up plugin.

The entire world wide zone plugin - As it says.... The entire list!

Shipping module - This will give a more accurate and greater choice of shipping options.

Stock control plugin - As you will have read from previous posts our intention is to be able to give live stock levels. Well this is the third stage and will now enable this to happen.

A new internal email system - One of the biggest problems is communication. This new plugin should solve the update process problem.

Newsletter module - Regular updates that can easily be removed if required.

Track and Trace - This module will allow quick and accurate track & trace of your dispatched orders.

Any feedback or questions please just drop me a line....

Kind regards,

David Radcliffe

Our migration for the Virtual Private Server to our brand new Dedicated Server did not go to plan.

The first installment of our system update was a disaster! The move was scheduled for a few hours offline whilst name servers propagate. A few hours became just short of 4 weeks. Although we are back online now, not everything is right. We have missing plugins, we have corrupt files, we still have a site down.

However, not all bad news as we have just successfully finished our level 4 PCI compliance and hackerproof testing. Our sites are now 100% secure as is our sever, our payment gateway and our databases. Couple this to our $50,000 Identity assurance guarantee from COMODO, you can not go wrong.

The next step is to get the websites back up and fully functional so that we can start the site updates.

The first task , the one that you will not see, is going to improve the websites admin section and back office functions. This will be completed offline and then installed in the early hours of the morning to reduce downtime. What we are intending to do is join all 4 of our e-commerce websites back office areas into one easy to use management admin site. This will be completely bespoke and designed to enable Limited to customize the functionality as the business develops.

Once completed one of the major improvements will be stock control, this new management admin site, coupled to our EPOS system (details in December 2010 update) will allow us to show actual "LIVE" stock levels, re-stocking dates when stock is depleted and availability for special orders across all of our sites.

The second task on the back of management admin site project will be the update of the and websites.... We aim to keep the same simple overall function and feel but will be giving each a new modern look.

Kind regards,

David Radcliffe

The system is extremely comprehensive and offers a full range of impressive features that will automatically manage this challenging process.

Each stock item of our 50,000 plus range is given it's own unique code. This is stored in the system and details are added - such as stock level, low order value, description, manufacturer and of course price.

We can print off numerous reports or charts based on many varying factors like popularity, stock level, VAT value etc....

This will help and improve all aspects of the supply process....

Kind regards,
