Thanks for all the advice.

Unfortunately it is heavily modified and whilst I could (relatively) easily get it to work with PHP7 whose EOL comes this year, I think it is quite different getting it to work with 7.1 and 7.2 to the point where I think XC5 is really the only way forward for longevity and ease of updating. I guess I need to aquaint myself with XC5's 'flawless upgrade feature' to see if it really is very different to what XC4 offers.

Upgrading from 4.6.x to 4.7.x is pretty simple compared to other version jumps. You can also patch 4.6.x to work on php 7. Feel free to email us if you want to discuss further.

Does anyone offer a x-configurator / product configurator / product wizard plugin for XC5?

Thanks Alex,
That module does not allow the customer to configure, just allows them to buy a group of product.
It's a shame that there are no modules for configurator, that means nobody with xcart 4 that uses x-configurator can move to xcart 5.

You are right, it just allows to buy a bunch of products.
Frankly speaking, Product Configurator isn't a very popular module, which is mostly why something as complex hasn't been developed for X-Cart 5 at this time.

I was an early adopter of XC5 and I hated it at first. The first 2 years the automatic update would get stuck at least 50% of the time. Sometimes really bad, I'd be down for days. However, I don't think I've had any lock up during an update in the last year or two, so I do believe that part of it is working great, at least it is for me. Updating is a breeze now.

Product Configurator - I was a big user of that in XC4, that was a sad disappointment and I lost a lot of sales because of the lack of it. They made it sound like I was the only user of it, apparently not.

Just my opinion - I don't know how it is now but migrating from XC4 to XC5 was my worst nightmare. If I had to do it again, I would just start building a fresh version of XC5 in another directory and start from scratch there instead of migrating. Then perhaps you might be able to migrate some stuff like products or customer data or orders, but I doubt it will be completely smooth. Trying to migrate was HELL! A lot less work to start fresh really.

Do you mean product options? (I use this all the time in X-cart 4!!) or do you mean Product Wizard or something else?

Thanks, I'm considering the big upgrade.

Product Configurator = Product Wizard
Same module just different name, name depends on the XC4 version.
