93 programmers of choices to make in order to make their code play well with
94 IC - for example, if they want to have a field in the DB for images,
95 advise them to name the column 'image' because other tags (they might or
96 might not later use) take that as default value. etc...

128 - Check if redhat/tarball paths are correct
129 - explain syntax accepted in profile files
130 - Fix ImageDir and include one picture for example
131 - <Racke>I name three things that IC users often didn't acknowledge:
132 namespaces (CGI, Values, Scratch)
133 parsing order ([L], variables, lists) - interpolation
134 inventing syntax doesn't buy you anything
135 IC is _not_ a programming language
136 - how to delete item from cart in all possible ways
137 - give examples for the tasks in 'do yourself' section (in progress)
138 - give good practices about filtering, security
139 - see problems from old docs/TODO notes on iccattut

177 icstart - Getting Started Guide
178 * FAQ for each demo catalog (foundation, construct, barry, artstore)
179 * FAQ for each database (DBM, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle)
180 * FAQ for each payment processor (CCVS, Cybercash, Signio,, etc.)
184 $Session->{source} bzw. [data session source] comes from:
186 http://host/cgi-bin/cat?;;thesource (old MV 3 way, still works)
187 http://host/cgi-bin/cat?mv_pc=thesource (current way)
188 http://host/cgi-bin/cat?mv_pc=RESET (clears it, for debugging)
190 Otherwise mv_pc does double duty as a cache foiler, and is a meaningless,
191 incrementing integer.

195 iccattut:
196 Switch to new payment settings instead of mv_cyber_mode etc.
197 To add
198 Discuss profile.order verification options like 'zip=zip' and then explain why we don't actually use that one much unless it's for a U.S.-only store
199 Problems?
200 [on-match] gets used if search returned no results on an empty search string. Why?
201 Doubled-up CC verification errors:
202 No error message is given in [error] if required form variables weren't passed at all (vs. being simply empty)
203 No error message if profiles.order can't be found
205 Discuss using images (from old mvdocs):
206 A public Web directory for inline image graphic files is needed. Interchange does not serve the images, only the HTML tags calling them. A useful convention is to place all buttonbars, backgrounds, and icons in the /images directory, with the catalog items located in the /images/catalog directory. Regardless of the directory structure, an I<absolute path> must be used. Relative paths are unacceptable. Use the I<ImageDir> directive, which places that as the absolute path in front of all relative IMG and INPUT SRC, and BODY, TABLE, TR, TH, and TD BACKGROUND specifications.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
