Axel Pfaender's web store

In an unlikely turn of events, I took on a Wordpress project this month as well. Take one look at this guy’s stuff and you’ll know why. Behold Axel Pfaender’s web store. It was started by another developer, so don’t blame me for using the Shopp plugin. I had to make some significant changes to Shopp’s core and UI files to make it play nicely with Germany’s value-added-tax laws. The same would apply to a number of other EU countries as well. Anyway, the site is also multilingual, and I learned a lot about how internationalization works on the back end. Cool stuff. I’m just fantasizing about porting this whole thing to Rails though…
