2016-03-16 - [Change] Added vendor rating (calculated based on the average rating of all the vendor's products). #XCN-6232

It adds credibility and thus makes purchasing experience even more pleasant and safe for customers.

Really don't understand the logic here. First its not vendor rating is it? Its vendors product ratings average, two completely different things. So the vendor will get 1 star if all the customers rate the products 1 star? Why not have rate the actual vendor? The way they can decide on delivery time, how well the products were packed etc. You have company logo and company name and then you pull the product review data? It doesn't make sense. You should be listing product information in that case. It doesn't even state the reviews are based on the product reviews, it appears as though its company reviews. It just lists a total number of votes under the company name. Thats not fair on the vendor who sells DVDs that all the latest DVDs may be bad. The vendor will get 1 star review when they might be a superb seller.

Very good notice, Richard!

Initially we implemented this functionality for our marketplace which we are going to use very soon for XC4 and XC5 addons. Since our vendors (developers) offer their own products (addons), it means that aggregate rating will show average rating of the addons (==developer) popularity.

So it works with e-goods and property rights (like painting and so on), but definitely doesn't work with manufactured products at all. However, we decided to add this mod available for all the customers, even it can be used for certain business only.

In further we will improve the rating behavior and will implement vendor rating itself.

Has anyone gone from 5.2.13 to 5.2.14? Did it go smoothly?

You really should duplicate your site and run the upgrade on the copy. Test. If all works - run it on the live site. Even if it doesn't work on the live site for some reason you will have the dev one so you can swap them.

Default Re: X-Cart 5.2.14: Vendor rating, Order messages, Bugfixes

I have difficulties trying to make a development copy. My site is in the public_html directory. If I use ssh, I can do this:

tar -zcvf storebak.tar.gz -C /home/ocha public_html

Then I move it to a temp directory "/dev": mv storebak.tar.gz /home/ocha/public_html/dev

When I unpack from there, directory structure turns into this:

/home/ocha/public_html/dev/public_html/

Very confusing. Is there a guide anywhere that shows how to make a developer copy, step by step?

Code:
tar -zcvf storebak.tar.gz -C /home/ocha public_html

You create an archive of the public_html directory, that's why it creates public_html inside the directory where you try to unpack the file.

Try this:
Code:
cd /home/ocha/public_html tar -zcvf [your-path]/storebak.tar.gz .htaccess *

I did that, it created the file storebak.tar.gz in /home/ocha/public_html/dev

Now to unpack this, I assume I...

1) cd /home/ocha/public_html/dev

2) tar -zxvf storebak.tar.gz

Correct?

As Alex said yes. Yes you will unpack in the dev directory. Make sure after that you modify htaccess and config files for the change of root.
