  1. Hello,

    note: The bootstrap colorpicker is not part of the opencart source and it is not included in your extension, so if you want it to work, please compile it to your extension.

    note 2: your ocmod.xml does not meet the instructions way opencart handles

    Besides these, your posts are very useful and helps a lot if anyone wants to learn. I will contact you to work together.

  2. Very useful and good looking, but spoils First Input Delay metrics on mobile. When activated, it raises FID from 10ms to 250ms which throws the site in yellow Core Web Vitals zone.
