State of the Game #178: Checkout Complete

Welcome to another State of the Game!

This week I finished up all the cart, checkout, giftcode, and user account systems on the website! It’s a BIG step and now I am ready to start the migration process over from the old site. I will be moving all the content over [with some help from my amazing wife!] and hooking up a transition from the old user accounts to the new ones.

Then, it’s just a matter of putting in a bunch of redirects from the old pages to the new ones and then transfering the domain name to the new IP address! It’s getting close!

There are some outstanding content issues as well, mainly just for formating the site correctly for people on phones.

The last real big hurdle is the bridging of the account systems. The most likely thing that will happen is a mass password reset, but I would like a better solution than that.

This week I will be focused on finding that better solution! See you next week!
