Compatibility, Bundling, and Status Notes:
Compatible with VPCart V4.5 to V8
Needed for all Big Yellow Zone products that use VPCart.

One of the core BigYellowZone modules for VPCart, this module is the fundamental building-block that allows other BigYellowZone modules to work properly across different versions of VPCart. It sets up various values which aren't otherwise known from VPCart (such as your actual database type as opposed to simply the database connection type)

It also has a file structure which allows you to easily bolt-in additional BigYellowZone modules (or your own customisations) so that you don't need to make many alterations to your core/generic VPCart Files.


Technical/Developer Information:
This module must always be installed before any other BigYellowZone VPCart module. Please make sure that you keep this module up to date on your site. Your site should always have the latest version of this module before you install/upgrade any other BigYellowZone modules.
