- the FF bug is fixed, as far as I can tell.
But - when placing an order and the confirmation e-Mail is being send, the complete description of the article is send, in case of a detailed description of a book (or several) this could be a rather long e-MAil. In the Previous Version I turned this OFF, so that only the Headder / Main title of the Article was in the e-Mail.
The confirmation email now uses the same settings as the product list and cart do. So the "Maximum description lenght" option and the "Pricelist format" option in the settings screen now both also apply to the confirmation mail.
I would prefer a VAT field for each item (books for exaample are 7% in Germany while "normal" stuff is still 16%, from January 1st it will be 19%.
The VAT should be calculated for each item - Also what happens to the VAT on the Shippimng costs. If the merchandise has a VAT of 7% the Shipping charges are also calculated by 7%, and if merchandise has 16% shipping is also 16% (strange German law, but the shipping costs will have the same tax rate as the shipped items).
So - it would be useful to have the tax "adjustable" for each article and the shipping charges should then "use" the tax-rate of the articles.
What tax rate should the shipping costs have if I order a book (6%) and a TFT(19%) at the same time? Individual tax rates for products could be done.. but I don't see how the shipping rates should be calculated with mixed orders.
I don't think it is necessary to havean option to turn OFF the tax in the prices in the Article listing, since it is European Law that in internet businesses (B2C) all given prices should be with all applicable taxes. And - in addition - the user should be able - within 1 mouseclick to see the appropiate shiiping costs for these articles.
This means that you should have an internal link to a page which states all the shipping costs for the articles. If someone wants to give shipping costs by weight - each and every article should then have an indication for the weight, so that the total could be calculated.
Weird Laws - but thats the way it is.
Turning it off is useful for people who want to sell personal items, like on eBay. They don't need to calculate tax for selling personal stuff without profit. Thats why the option is build in.
When disabling the postal service in the shipping section you get an SQl error
I tried it, but I don't get that error. Weird?
Just a tiny problem
the "open-folder" icons are 50x50 pixels, which turns them rather fuzzy, you should try the set the default icons to 32x32 which gives them a much smoother appearance and in addition the size of the picture in the cats should be made resizable, otherwise one should have to resize all picture before uploading.
I will change it to 32x32, and see how it looks. By the way, if anyone has better graphics, please post them or send them.
Thanks for all the notes!!!!!
