Extension not working: enabling compatibility patches for OMF

Sometimes OMF has to be patched to work correctly with specific extensions and themes. This is a guide to applying compatibility patches in OMF.

OMF  Basic

In OMF Basic you can enable/disable compatibility patches directly from the OMF Admin panel. Here's how to do this:

  1. Go to OpenCart Admin>Extensions>Modules
  2. Find the OpenCart Mobile Framework Admin panel. Choose “Install” if it isn't already installed and click “Edit”. 
  3. On the Compatibility tab tick the patches that correspond to the extensions you're using and click “Save”.

OMF Lite

This example covers enabling compatibility mode with the Shoppica theme.

Please note: The process is absolutely identical when it comes to other themes or extensions.

The steps are as follows:

  1. Locate the /vqmod/xml directory.
  2. Open zzz_omf_system.xml with any text editor.
  3. In the file locate the line that marks the beginning of the Shoppica section i.e.
    <!-- Shoppica v.1.x -->
  4. Read the instructions below that line in the file and delete the corresponding "REMOVE ME" lines.
  5. Don't forget to save the file before closing.
