so on a couple of my sites, and client sites, we use payfast for payment with marketpress.
payfast has a php file or two, that we can upload to the payments gateway folder, and voilla, we can take payments.
however, every time there's a marketpress update, the payment gateway simply falls away.
as i'm using the automated one click sexy update feature inside hub, i really don't notice when there's an update, i just get an irate grumble from one of my clients, and then i know i'm the lucky winner of re-doing the payfast upload and extract, and "activating" the gateway on each of the sites.
so - here's my question.
i have the php files that does the heavy lifting, it was already created. but - how do i make this gateway into a completely separate plugin, that still engages with marketpress even after an update?
the way i understand it, marketpress looks in the gateway folder, and regurgitates whatever it sees there. and as long as marketpress is going to update everything in that folder too, it's going to overwrite the gateway every time.
writing a separate plugin in a separate place, won't tell the gateway folder that there's something else sitting in a separate place, so it's not the .php files that are weird, it's the location where marketpress looks that will be the problem.
how do i get past that?
