Hi All,

Newbie question here most likely. I see that the install of Hotcakes comes with DNN 8.0.3 as a single (what seems to be) an integrated package.

So is there a very tied integration between Hotcakes and DNN8.0.3? Or can Hotcakes be added to a newer DNN version as a 3rd part module as we know it from DNN? I would be interested to add Hotcakes to a DNN 9 site.

Thank you,
Aderson

Since there are new changes on the horizon and a new playing field with Hotcakes 3X being both open-source and freeing up past 1x and 2x licenses, can we consider going back to calling and mentioning DNN by name as D N N instead of "CMS"

I'd love to be able to search the Hotcakes forums for issues of whether Hotcakes supports D N N 9 instead of just the number 9...

Hello Ryan:

It's important that this forum focuses on Hotcakes Commerce only. The majority of people that currently use Hotcakes and that will use Hotcakes in the future are not familiar with the underlying CMS. This has been the case since the product originally launched. Any naming of the CMS has been very limited anywhere on our websites or marketing materials. As for what's supported, you can find that quite easily in the documentation.

Please see the last link in the Requirements section:

I agree with the focus direction... but to have the forum system auto replace D N N with "CMS" implies that it's a term that we should not use such as a foul language filter would replace. Originally, too, there was a political drive to why D N N was removed from references, documentation and conversations.

So while I can understand the focus for the non-developer users and wanting to make sure they have a 100% awesome experience, I would imagine it's time for a community-lead discussion on the point and perhaps the consideration of, at the least, not auto replacing/filtering D N N out of discussions. Especially if they end up being technical in nature... I'd think that D N N would seem appropriate to mention in those conversations.

Hello Ryan:

Thank you for the ongoing discussion on this. You're right about the filter implying the term shouldn't be used. This clearly was the intent. This website and community are solely dedicated to Hotcakes Commerce as an e-commerce CMS. I know this is an adjustment, but the communities are not the same. This decision is a critical one to ensure continued focused growth and support our own community.

Thank you for the note Will.

BTW, I just replied today because the notification email ended up in the spam folder.

Also, sorry for the "CMS" word. I wasn't aware of the subtleties yet.

Cheers,
Aderson

FYI... You may or may not have heard, but we're going to begin releasing a module package in addition to the standalone solution, starting with the next release. With this being the case, we're going to need to allow for the "other" CMS name to be allowed in the forum. In addition, we'll be adding more forums that will be specific to the other CMS that currently cannot be named.

Is the module package version for DNN 9 already available?

If not, what is the roadmap/planning for the module?
Is it already in Github?

That's a good question Idas!

Yes, it looks like the module version has been posted to GitHub:
https://github.com/HotcakesCommerce/modules 
But there's not been a release yet.

I know that Shaun and Arrow crew had to deal with the hurricanes down in West Palm Beach Florida and that there was surely time lost there, but be encouraged that the modules location has the most recent update by Shaun 7 days ago, so there's been recent posts!

As Ryan mentioned, there have been some unintended delays caused by weather. We've since found a couple of show-stoppers that needed to be addressed before we can push the release out. I just got an update on it a few moments ago, and it sounds like we're getting close to being able to test the package again. I hope to begin testing the 03.00.01 release next week.

This is an open source project. Maybe we can help.

You're absolutely right and we'll always encourage that. This specific update is already actively being worked on though. I received another update on it yesterday. Thanks!

Is 03.00.01 already on the github repo?

I pulled yesterday and did a build, but looks like it built out a 3.0.0.0.

I have some minor work to do to clean things up in GitHub, and I plan on doing that this weekend. I apologize for the delay. The release process was done much differently this time versus any other release we've had, and we're working out the hiccups with our process.

Hi Will,

Any updates on DNN 9.x compatibility?

All versions of Hotcakes Commerce appear to already be fully compatible with DNN 9 as far as we can tell. The only issue we see is that Hotcakes lacks the persona bar integration necessary in DNN 9 to make the store administration experience be fully usable. Development efforts are already underway on resolving this issue. You'll likely see this resolved in Hotcakes 3.1.0.

Will,

Given that, for a first time user would you recommend waiting for 3.1 (assuming the time frame isn't the day after eternity...smile?

You don't have to wait. The only issue would be that there won't be a built-in way to navigate to the store administration until version 03.01.00 is available. There are many ways to address that, including bookmarking the administration dashboard, and placing a permission-protected button on the site that leads to the same page.
