OpenCart: Remove Powered by Opencart

Today I am inserting a new Opencart extension I have created.

What does it do?
Remove Powered by OpencartRemoves the copyright message: “Powered By OpenCart” and its link from either or both of the following:
* Order message (At the bottom of the email the client gets after ordering something from your store).
* Footer of the site

This extention is based on VQMod so just drop the xml file to the vqmod/xml directory and that’s it!

Remove Powered by Opencart from OrderChoose your pick:
– SEO (one link less on every page can really help seo)
– Site’s Visibility (Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder)
– Just because it annoys you…

— No changes to any core files
— Survives upgrades (upgrade your store – the extension will still work – no need to ‘babysit’ it)
— I will send an update email to the purchasers after any important update

Daniel doesn’t mind removing the “Powered by” ad, but he asks the users to be fair and donate to the script development – I think it’s a fair advice…

OpenCart: Optimize & Speedup

The first Open cart plugin to enter my site will be:
(VQMod) Optimize and Speedup your open cart ( great for SEO )


This plugin is very important to any opencart store owner if he has an opencart store versioned between: v1.5.0 – v1.5.2.1

If you have an opencart matching that version then this plugin is a must!


==What does this extension do?==
In a nutshell – causes your site to load faster.
Which enhances your customers’ experience of your site as well as satisfies some of google’s page-load speed-test algorithms,
which causes google to evaluate your site in higher respect (a faster site gets more authority from google since the “Panda” rollout)
which causes your site to appear higher in the search results!

Personally I think this extension is a MUST!! for any site owner, and especially to those stores which contain many categories/subcategories.

==How does the extension do it?==
It reduces the number of database queries done on any given page.

As a thumb rule, the more categories you have, the more load time is reduced using this extension.

For the specifics please go to the “Documentation” tab.

Please note that as a side effect – no quantity totals will be displayed near the category names (not a big loss IMHO).

Please look at the images to see the pages without the quantity counter.

==Will I need to edit any core files?!==
This extention is based on VQMod so just drop the file to its respective folders and that’s it!

No changes to the database or any core/template file.
