Concrete5 Bank Transfer eCommerce Payment Method
Want to offer bank transfers as a means of paying for goods online? There's no way to do this in Concrete5 eCommerce, unless you hack the default gateway.

The problem with hacking the default gateway, is that an update to Concrete5 eCommerce will overwrite your changes. Bank details are embedded in the code, which means that if the customer changes their account, I have to update the code again. All of this can be avoided by using a modified version of the gateway, which can be configured in the dashboard with the right details.

Don't Ask Me To Think, I Was Hired For My Looks
Newer Is Not Always Better

We have been developing an application which is in the final stages of testing, and all was going well, until the client tried it out on Internet Explorer 8. This came as rather a shock, since the application was written to web standards and validated using the W3C on line validator. We'd tested it out on IE8 as well, so the reports of it looking a mess were rather a surprise.
