Found a fix for my needs - a little different

Not posted correctly, intended to REPLY - the original post was here: http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/index.php?sho...69entry635069



I've been looking all over for contributions and/or documentation.


Here's what I need (this is for SHIPPING):


DOMESTIC (Meaning USA and Puerto Rico)

$2 dollars for first item and $1 for ea additional one


INTERNATIONAL (Meaning All Other Countries)

$4 dollars for first item and $2 for ea additional one


How can I do this?


I already have the contribution that adds: First Item $X, Additional Items $Y

You can see that contribution by clicking HERE


But how can I specify that I want First Item $X, Additional Items $Y for Domestic & a different rate for international?






In your first post you put a link to the FirstItemPlus contribution, which is what I actually need - but I need 4 different ones. All I did was:


copy, rename and give a different title to the language firstitemplus.php file


then edit the TITLE and DESCRIPTION fields and change the name of the file to the new one [firstitemplus2 instead of all firstitmeplus instances]


then copied and renamed the modules file, and changed all calls from firstitemplus to show firstitemplus2 for example].


This allows me to have as many different types of shipping as I want with first item plus additional costs as I want - - USPS, USPS Priority, UPS ground, International, etc etc


Again, probably not very elegant but it works for me - considering that I'm a newbie not all that bad me thinks LOL


Couldn't have even thought of it without reading through the extensive posts in the forums and contributions section - super community assistance here - THANKS TO ALL!
