Sep 06, 2006 @ 06:44:07

On the High Performance PHP blog today, Justin Silverton has posted a few thoughts on why he thinks "oscommerce is a nightmare".

He quotes from the oscommerce.com site about what their goal for the software is and the methods they're working at to achieve those goals. Then comes his reasons for not wanting to use their software - five of them on differing subjects:

  • no separation of logic and presentation
  • difficult to integrate into an existing design
  • security
  • cannot have multiple sizes of image previews
  • admin navigation issues
He offers a bit of explaination for each of these, backing up his opinion with a few facts.
