Help needed for new feature


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

I would like to add a "people who bought this product also bought these products" box to my shop. Unfortunately, I am a bit of a newbie with osCommerce and havent found anything helpful in the documentation.

 

My idea is to log what everyone buys and then create link tables for the products, but if i do that, I'd soon have 1000 tables or so in my database and I wanted to know if there wasn't some feature in osCOmmerce I havent found yet that permits me to do much the same. I really like the Amazon idea (if they had the idea) and use it frequently myself when I shop on their website, I hope you all know what I mean and can help me out please!

 

Thanks in advance :)

For what exactly should I search? How would you call such a feature?

what exactly do you mean?

 

I mean oscommerce comes with an also purchased module!

 

The following contrubutions can be used to enhance it....

thanx, I didn't see it anywhere in the documentation so I thought I had to code it myself :)

 

I am a little confused though, what does this mean?

 

includes/modules/also_purchased_products to show all the products purchased by a certain customer and not by order

 

What I have in mind is not customer related but product related, did I understand something wrong here or do they mean something completely different?

I think what that modification is saying is that it changes the module so that it shows other products bought by customers who have bought this product BUT not necessarilly bought at the same time!! (hope that makes sense).

 

I can't see why you'd want to do that but obviously someone found it important enough to contribute a modification!!
