This is my first forum post. After scouring the internet for a integrated, standards-based shopping-cart, checkout solution, I have landed here. I am looking forward to a pleasant long-term, lasting relationship! I liked the philosophy, site design and information provided on the main site. Kudos.
So ... I signed up and am quite literally - just getting started.
My first two questions pertain to the sample code that was presented quickly upon login.
The site to which I will be adding an online commerce solution is nicolpawn.ca
(XHTML-strict standard's built site based on a customized version of an O/S blogging app - b2evolution.net
(1) jQuery Versions:
The version of the minimized jQuery in the sample code is 1.9.0. We are already utilizing jQuery on the website, but it is an older version - 1.3.2. Is there posted anywhere (searched the forum & doc, but didn't find it - hence my post) a matrix of jQuery version dependencies? (i.e., will FC1.1 run off of 1.3.2 or must we load 1.9.0 and then deal with any/all conflicts with the features that utilize the jQuery (banner slideshow "NivoSlider", video handling "JW Player" & custom-made js for "blown-up" links in the paintball articles)?
And in preparation for immanent upgrade to FC2.0 ... what version of jQuery does THAT use?
(2) Self-hosted <HEAD> files:
The three adds to the head file to get FC1.1 up and "running" include a CSS, minimized jQuery and colorbox.js files. I assume that the CSS and JQuery files are fairly static, so it makes more sense for me to download and load those off of the site's webserver (plus I plan on heavily modifying the CSS). What about the colorbox.js - is this static - or are developers constantly making changes/fixes/additions to the scripts (i.e., would there be any/much value in hosting that file locally too?)
(4) Guest Checkout:
Can a visitor make a purchase without registering. (i.e., is there such a thing as "guest checkout"?)
Thanks in advance for answering my questions!
