Hello everyone,

I'm a PHP dev with a client that wants me to setup an OpenCart store. I've installed the latest v3.0.3.6 code from the Github repo but continue to find bugs and errors. Is OpenCart v3 a per-release beta? Is there a stable code base that works? Is there a test suite I can run after downloading to make sure everything functions properly before continuing development?

There seems to be a lot of "known" issues, with solutions and fixes on Google searches, but I just need something that works to get this shop running.
Any help and recommendations for choosing the right version will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Newbie

From the 3.x branch use 3.0.2.0

Well, they all do :laugh: but latest Github DEV Versions usually
are not yet error-free, regardless of, what Software brand it is. ;)

Hopefully OC 3.0.3.7 will be soon released, based on github's 3.0.x.x_Maintenance branch. The last 2 releases (3.0.3.6 and 3.0.3.5) are useless.

Well, it still won't keep one of those forever-upgrader-Nuts from trying. :drunk:
It was the #1 reason for me, to remove 99.999 percent of my FB Postings in the
OC-related Sites, it just makes no sense, to waste time with dreamers+believers,
always expecting latest to automatically also be best. :laugh:

I am not sure if you know what you are writing?!
Just a sample why 3.0.3.6 is NOT fine (beside this, this bug exists in the whole 3.x branch):
