QTPro Attribute Model Number Contribution


Recommended Posts



I recently realised that I needed to make a contribution that allows me to add Model Numbers to all my product attributes (e.g. for a size 7 Nike trainer). First I added a column (products_attribute_model) to my products_stock table.


I decided the easiest way to update the model numbers would be to clone the stock.php page and then modify it such that it updates products_attribute_model rather than products_stock_quantity. However, it appears that the coding of this page won't allow any non-numerical model number to be entered. I have tried stripping out any code that I thought might be causing this but I wasn't successful. If anyone knows how to modify the following short section of stock.php code such that non-numerical model numbers can be submitted I would be very grateful!







} else {



if ($VARS['action']=="Add") {

$inputok = true;

if (!(($VARS['product_id']) and ($VARS['product_id']==$VARS['product_id']))) $inputok = true;

while(list($v1,$v2)=each($VARS)) {

if (preg_match("/^option(\d+)$/",$v1,$m1)) {

if (($v2) and ($v2==$v2)) $val_array[]=$m1[1]."-".$v2;

else $inputok = true;




if (($inputok)) {



$q=tep_db_query("select products_stock_id as stock_id from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_STOCK . " where products_id=" . (int)$VARS['product_id'] . " and products_stock_attributes='" . $val . "' order by products_stock_attributes");

if (tep_db_num_rows($q)>0) {






tep_db_query("update " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_STOCK . " set products_attribute_model=" . $VARS['quantity'] . " where products_stock_id=$stock_id");


} else {

tep_db_query("insert into " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_STOCK . " values (0," . (int)$VARS['product_id'] . ",'$val'," . $VARS['quantity'] . ")");
