Created way to add weight to attributes - Sorter and Copier v5.1a


Recommended Posts

I am no programmer so bear with me for those who need the weight function to work in "Sorter and Copier". You will need ver. 5.1(a) with the updated file catalog/admin/products_attributes.php


Now, retrieve the contribution, "add weight to product attribute", which can be found here.




The only thing you need from this contribution is the file catalog/includes/classes/shopping_cart.php


Make sure you HAVE altered your database tables per Linda's contrib. (Sorter and Cop...). No need to alter per the add weight to product... instructions.


Now do this...


Open up the prior mentioned shopping_cart.php and do a find and replace for this entry.


Find all instances of: options_values_weight

Change to: 'products_attributes_weight'


That is it...


It was much too cumbersome for me to use the add weight to... contribution since it required wading through hundreds of attributes in to original attribute manager script and change them one by one. Ughhhh... I already had Linda McGraths (early) version of Sorter and Copier installed but couldn't get the weight function to work even with an upgrade so I formulated this fix, and it works great!!!


Hope someone benefits as I did.
