@elmirage001 - Hi Paul, we are exactly like you, 12 years with x-cart 4, heavily modified and using PhilJ's excellent reBoot skin
It's a great platform and should never be allowed to disappear. It's great that support for x-cart 4 will continue.
Like you a move to x-cart 5 would mean losing the ability to "tweak" stuff when we want to do something quick and dirty!
I am just a little surprised that x-cart licenses can no longer be purchased
If support is continuing then why not carry on selling the platform
I have a couple of new projects later in the year that I want to use x-cart 4 on. Just seems a bit of an odd business decision to me
Kind regards to all
