If you did not notice in the last week we have made all of our paid modules free. One of the paid modules we have made free is our Flex Layout module. This is one of the modules that I think is under appreciated in our library. I got the idea for this module by shopping on a big US store's website. In seeing the different categories and some of the product pages, I noticed that they were different. Some of the pages had a different layout, especially categories with fewer products in them. This made me want to create something [...]

You might have noticed I have not been blogging as much lately. Its because we have had our hands full launching a new project. For the last several years we have been discontented with PrestaShop. It hasn't had any new features introduced, just bugs. Then 1.7 has come along, it does not install on most hosts and it is not near stable. So stable that it has made us rethink our business around PrestaShop. We are still going to support PrestaShop and PrestaShop site's, but at the same time we have been developing thirty bees. thirty bees is our answer to [...]
Is your PrestaShop site secure from hackers? In e-commerce security should be one of your top concerns, because in the end it can cost you everything. Over the last few weeks we have dealt with over 100 security breaches in PrestaShop sites and it does not look like it is slowing down yet.
