PHPList is an amazing piece of software if your looking to send mailshot from your server, what makes it even better is the fact it’s 100% free!

OpenCart is an awesome eCommerce system, however there are a few shortcomings due to the apparent lack of knowledge the OpenCart development team have (or perhaps the incompleteness of the OpenCart software?).

Quite a few years ago I was having difficulty with sending HTML emails, on some clients they worked fine but for others they would come through all garbled. so I decided to research a correct approach, which I implemented into a function. A little while later I wanted to also send file attachments in the […]

 

Recently I had a weird problem where I was setting up two sites to use Barclays ePDQ, however the post back URL for both sites were completely different so I could not simply format a PARAMVAR so ePDQ would post to the right place. I finally concluded that I needed a central location for ALL […]
