OpenCart Ecommerce Developer

Opencart is a favorite ecommerce development platform. Here are a few tricks I’ve picked up along the way.

A Satisfied Client

Hillary has worked on my site, for many years and has done an amazing job quickly and affordably. Response time is very fast and the work quality is professional.

Slow Site?

By default, OC shows the product count for each category but most sites disable this. Even if it’s disabled, the queries run and loop through each category and count each product. As long as the sites don’t have more than say 50 categories they should run fine.

Image Compression

Here is where you can change the image compression. /system/library/image.php Line 38-ish… public function save($file, $quality = 90) { lower from 90 to 70

Autocomplete Remover

Available for all our OpenCart installations if clients prefer the old selection method over new AutoComplete feature. Can be downloaded from our account.
