Godaddy Hosting Configuration Change Affects Paypal Payments
I never never never never recommend anyone host a zen cart website on a godaddy.com server. (Other types of websites are fine I am sure - just too many problems with the zen cart program). Today an announcement was made on the zen cart forum that explains that a new upgrade to godaddy's hosting configuration now makes paypal not work on zen cart websites hosted on their servers. The fix for this issue can be found here: http://www.zen-cart.com/forum/showthread.php?p=612520#post612520

Zen Cart SQL Injection Risk
The Zen Cart development team has just posted a bug fix for all current versions of zen cart that have their magic_quote_gpc turned off in their server/site's PHP settings. To check and see if your magic_quote_gpc is turned off, log into your admin, go to Tools then to Server / Version Info and do a search to find magic_quote_gpc which is under PHP CORE. All websites on my dedicated server are fine, because magic_quote_gpc is turned on globally on the server. To find out more about the fix for the bug, please visit the Zen Cart Forum's Announcement Area.

Authorize.net Changes Effective 10/1/08
Authorize.net is making changes effective October 1, 2008 which affect the size of Transaction ID values returned when payments are processed. The Zen Cart Development team has provided a patch for this change via your zencart admin as follows: (please make sure that you change the table name to add the correct prefix such as zen_authorize.net - if you have 'zen' as a prefix on your tables.) ALTER TABLE authorizenet CHANGE COLUMN transaction_id transaction_id varchar(20) NOT NULL default '';

PCI Compliance for Zen Cart Stores
I have had people raise concern about the new PCI Compliance laws as to whether zencart is considered PCI compliant. So... I checked around and had one of the abuse and security analysts from where my dedicated server is hosted and here was his response: Your business is PCI compliant as long as you are not storing Track 1 CC data which consists of the full CC number, name, expiration date. As long as this information is not being stored, you are fine. Using a payment gateway to put in payment information allows you to avoid PCI compliance as this is passed on to the payment gateway.

Extra Sidebox Banner Box Mod Added
I just finished writing a modification for zencart 1.3.8 that allows you to have an additional banner box in one of your sideboxes.  This really comes in handy if you have already exhausted the supply of sidebox banner boxes that comes with zencart and do not want to have to use rotating banners. You can find this mod by clicking here
