Nice if Alegro could be integrated in Joomla:
- with a bridge like JooCart for OpenCart.
- through JFusion

I had a look at the JooCart.
You'll have to explain what the advantage is?
All I could see is it has a template switcher.
We already have that. We can also move modules around the cart in admin and do it by page.
What more does it do?

These products permit to integrate a soft into a CMS (here Joomla, worldwide used).
JFusion is an interface (API) extension for Joomla with predefined classes and methods to interact.
JooCart is a custom commercial bridge between Joomla and OpenCart.
Basicaly, when someone register in the CMS, he is also stored in the shop tables as a new customer.
Links in the CMS go to the home shop, but integration can be deeper (shop page inside content, templates of the CMS, ...).

I say that because it could be profitable to Alegro to go on this segment.
(CMS + shop) is often asked by users. They present their news/forum/... in front plus a shop part.

Tables abstraction make that easier to install in the same db.

I'll take a look at it. I do have Joomla installed on one of my servers, just never did anything with it.
Something to play with in my spare time.

Having some Alegrocart banners for advertising will be good. Standardized sizes here

Testing 1.2.7, i thought of 2 points:

1] When displaying lists (like countries, zones, ...) it would be more practical to have page links in the right bottom corner like in forums (first, previous, 1, 2, 3, .... 15, 16, next, last) instead of the box on the top left.
Standart user have good practice of forums so page controls fall immediately under the mouse. Code could be borrowed from a forum.

2] Rewriting the engine by adopting a PHP5 framework and no more using PHP references.
Opencart has done that since v1.5.
An approach could be to use the CodeIgniter framework and separate engine and Alegro own shop code.
The benefit is it is close to OpenCart's code and so modules could be easily transfered/adapted.
