osC Add-on: Quick UK Localisation

There might be thousands of existing add-ons for osCommerce 2.2, and it’s even true that many of them work on 2.3.1, but sometimes there isn’t what you need and you have to get on and do it yourself… so I did.

Initially aimed at converting an already-installed store (eg. from cpanel / Fantastico etc), this add-on has been extended so that you can overwrite the downloaded osc install and then run it in one step.

It basically converts the installed store and sample data from being US-based to UK-based, including date format, currency, address format. It sets up a European tax zone, changes ‘state’ to ‘county’ and leaves this free-text.

If you might need it, you can get it at osCommerce addons and see what it looks like in my development store. If you’ve got questions about it, please use the support forum, unless you want to ask me for paid help in implementing it, in which case get in touch directly.
