This site has been replaced by the Wiki.


This page includes plugins and extensions to add additional functionality to the Register. Most of these items can be "installed" by running the update-sysStrings program in $LaneRoot/backOffice/utilities/ . To overwrite the value in register-key, type $LaneRoot/backOffice/utilities/update-sysStrings register-key < the.new.file.

You should backup the database before modifying anything in the sysStrings table!

Most of these plugins lack documentation--sorry. ;) -jb

Price Tables (3/$1 pricing)
The plugin is in the register-initMachine code below. You need to add "pt#" to the product's extended field, where the number is the pricetable number. Also, add the amounts to the pricetable table (for example, "0.34 0.33 0.33" for 3/$1).

Credit Card Authorization via TCLink
This is a sample credit card authorization system that uses the GPL'ed TCLink module from TrustCommerce.

I'm willing to write wrappers like this for other open source or public domain gateways/clients.

Foreign Currency Tender
A sample foreign currency tender. You can create as many duplicates of this as you need. The exchange rate is "hard coded" in the plugin.
