I am a php developer, now I’m going to have to learn python J

I was going to try to port them, but I know that version 7 is complete for what we need right now…how difficult is upgrading versions?

Hi Barry
Just to point out that if the reason of selecting 7.0 is that modules you require has not been migrated to odoo, I would recomend that you expend the cost-effort of migrating them, better than trying to migrate after an instance being in production.
At the end it would be more efficient.
You could ask for skilled people in community or partners that could help you on that. Migrating modules from 7.0 is quite easy and not so costing.
My 2 cents

We have scoured the web, looking for just the right crm/erp product to use, even looking at commercial solutions.

For what we have planned, nothing compares to the functionality we’ve found to be inherent in the community download of odoo/openerp.  we actually need several of the modules from the 7.0 branch that haven’t been ported yet, so we plan on starting with that version, and upgrading at a future date.


that being said, the new web functionality in odoo v8 is remarkable.  I can see it assisting us in offering our channel partners a website with our product catalog, that they can in turn include in their websites….even ordering, while giving that reseller credit.

We will also have different rules for products, and skus(offer different discounts, etc…depending on partner level, etc..)

now, I read the free ebook, and that recommended using partners functionality to differentiate resellers.  so far, odoo v8 only has the ability to do a single website though per installation, does it not?


I’m considering looking to bridge installations of odoo together, exporting our available products, maybe even syncing the products table at the database level.

has anyone done this level of integration before?

are there plans for a multiple website structure, instead of the single website in v8?


Should I just look at the EDI module, and then be the supplier for the channel partners odoo installation?
