Hey acidic, everybody,
Thought I’d chime in here since I’m working on three MODx/FoxyCart sites at the moment, so I could offer some help here...
all the "tutorials" i’ve found i have followed, though there seems to be a missing piece somewhere, since the tutorials were a bit incomplete.
I know there are a few around, but which tutorials have you followed? - From your point of view, what would you find most useful tutorial wise? - would it be blogs like Net Tuts coving MODx and FoxyCart or more internal Wikis and Knowledge Bases?
As seeing more code. Where to place my snip’s, TV, and other things into the right spots would be very helpful.
I have got a copy of Luke’s (from Foxy) "pre-configured" MODx/FoxyCart install, and I’ve also tried FoxyBack
... which is more of a backend manager, which pulls your orders and transaction details into MODx - however, this doesn’t do any of the basics like Ditto, phpThumb, the chunks and templates - all of that would still be required.
Its early days for FoxyBack and the pre-configured install, so I personally like your way of going about it, building up the store structure so its unique for the project is probably the best way to go about it at this stage...
Generally setting up an eCommerce MODx site is a big task, and the broad basis are hard to cover, but I’m happy to help out in certain areas, where have you been having trouble?
foxy cart is awesome so far.
