We have released FoxEE 109 build 053. This update fixes issues with pricing options inventory control, changes the way passwords are handled and removes the password tag from the email templates.
Passwords created in the FoxyCart checkout form are no longer overwritten by a automatically generated password. The password the user creates on checkout will be transfered to EE upon member creation. *Note that FoxyCart store version 4.0 does not support the SHA1 hash, if your system is set to SHA1 then use store version 5.0.
FoxEE 109 Update
We have released a new update to FoxEE 109. This release fixes a bug with pricing options only allowing the first five options to appear and a bug with the "addtocart" method="link" tag.

Introducing the Resources Module
The Resources Module is a robust file management system for ExpressionEngine. It is an alternative to the included file upload feature in the Weblog modules Edit and Publish tabs. The three main features include encrypted file storage, the grouping of resources and resource file handling.
Resources encrypts your files in a secure directory using a MD5 hash, limiting access to unauthorized users. This is done automatically when you upload your files either through the control panel or the resource form tag. Authentication will only happen if the file is accessed from the resources module by an authorized user.
You can create resource groups and group childs that your files belong to, then add member groups to it. You can also add individual members in addition to your selected member groups. This allows you to specify exactly who can see what.
Creating, organizing and restricting your files is extremely easy. The Resource module includes two ways to upload a file, through the resource tab in the Publish/Edit panels or on your front end with the resource_form tag. The form tag includes an AJAX controlled interface that allows users easy access to their local directories. You can assign the allowed mime types to resource file categories and use these categories with your resource groups. Resources also includes versioning of your uploads as well as password protection. If you are doing versioning there is an option to notify the group members of the new version via email, including individual email templates per group. You can also restrict the file size, image dimensions and duplicates within the resource settings panel. Settings are assigned to weblogs so you can have as many individual settings as you like.
Built to work with other HCC modules like the Collaboration Module and FoxEE, the Resource module provides you with lots of flexibility and options.

HCC Development launches it’s online store
HCC Development is proud to announce that we have officially launched our on-line store using FoxEE and FoxyCart. The FoxEE/FoxyCart combination has given HCC Development a low cost, feature rich e-commerce solution to sell our web based software products. FoxyCart relieves us of having to maintain a PCI compliant server to handle credit card transactions and provides us with a JSON powered data feed to pull information into our website.
Setting up our on-line store was easy using the FoxEE module - literally less then an hour to make all the settings and and get up and running. The FoxEE/FoxyCart integration also made it easy for us to make advanced template designs, including cart, check out and receipt templates as well as HTML emails. Additionally the member control is seamless - after our customers purchase their downloadable software product they are automatically logged in and directed to their download page.
