I would also be interested to hear comments about integrating existing code with SS. Is there a recommended way to convert say a shopping cart into SS? Can a third party forum, or say OSCommerce, coexist next to SS on the same site? Or do modules need to be built from the ground up?

SS is a wonderful CMS with a lot of potential. (in my opinion)

OScommerce is a wonderful and stabil shopping cart software with a lot of modules.
and i don not like the layout from OSC as well as most sites as well as the admin part
and i use it because it's easy for me and coders too add / change something

what i like is that the productpages are editable trough SS

And i don not know what the best way is for doing that , thats the reason for my questions

about the forum
may be it's easier too add features at the forum in staed of building a bridge between between phpbb and SS

i found an open source software for email marketing. It's original developed by a mayor german email company. (they stiil do some coding)

A smaller compnay (a daughter of them) use this software also and trough this company it's possible to send emal in a flat rate contribution.

in my case i like to start small and after enough subscriptions i can easyly switch to that company (

My problem is that i don not know anything about coding. I just know need this and must look like xxxx and must to this xxxx

and then a i place a bid at and things get coded

but in this case i need more information so ll suggestins are welcome

thanks in advance
