modifying the inventory system..

Hi There!

 

I am looking to make a pretty unusual modification to the way the inventory function works. I need a mod that will do the following:

 

1. take inventory out of stock when a customer hits the "add to cart" button (instead of after checkout)

 

2. Return inventory to stock if the customer empties their cart or after 24 hours if they have not checked out.

 

Any ideas if this is possible in OSC? And if so, where should I start? LOL I know virtually no php... just enough to install mods/additions/etc

Although you really need to carefully consider the logistics of what you are asking for.

For example, what would happen if I open 10 browser windows to your store, stock up my cart in each one, then close them all down?

There's just too many ways for this to go belly-up that makes it unwise unless you consider it essential.
