In-stock only filter for 2.3


Recommended Posts

I have implemented Show soldout items for 2.3 and also Add in-stock only filter. This has added a working filter to advanced search in my shop. it is meant also to add the filter to categories and manufacturer displays but this doesn't work at all for me and was problematic for others as well, going on this topic.


I'm also interested in implementing the filter in the basic search box. This can clearly be done, going on this topic and I see the filter is still working in Puggybelle's shop.


Another option would at least be to sort the soldout items at the bottom of the list.


I'm not a coder so I'm dependent on a revised addon in this area and wondered if someone was working on it.

By pattern matching I've managed to get the filter working in the basic search box. My code in bm_search.php now looks like this:

 class bm_search {
   var $code = 'bm_search';
   var $group = 'boxes';
   var $instock;
   var $title;
   var $description;
   var $sort_order;
   var $enabled = false;

   function bm_search() {
     $this->instock = HEADER_INSTOCK;
     $this->title = MODULE_BOXES_SEARCH_TITLE;
     $this->description = MODULE_BOXES_SEARCH_DESCRIPTION;

     if ( defined('MODULE_BOXES_SEARCH_STATUS') ) {
       $this->sort_order = MODULE_BOXES_SEARCH_SORT_ORDER;
       $this->enabled = (MODULE_BOXES_SEARCH_STATUS == 'True');

       $this->group = ((MODULE_BOXES_SEARCH_CONTENT_PLACEMENT == 'Left Column') ? 'boxes_column_left' : 'boxes_column_right');

   function execute() {
     global $oscTemplate;

     $data = '<div class="ui-widget infoBoxContainer">' .
             '  <div class="ui-widget-header infoBoxHeading">' . MODULE_BOXES_SEARCH_BOX_TITLE . '</div>' .
             '  <div class="ui-widget-content infoBoxContents" style="text-align: left;">' .
             '    ' . tep_draw_form('quick_find', tep_href_link(FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH_RESULT, '', 'NONSSL', false), 'get') .
             '    ' . tep_draw_checkbox_field('instock', 1, false). HEADER_INSTOCK.
             '    ' . tep_draw_input_field('keywords', '', 'size="10" maxlength="30" style="width: 75%"') . ' ' . tep_draw_hidden_field('search_in_description', '1') . tep_hide_session_id() . tep_image_submit('button_quick_find.gif', MODULE_BOXES_SEARCH_BOX_TITLE) . '<br />' . MODULE_BOXES_SEARCH_BOX_TEXT . '<br /><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_ADVANCED_SEARCH) . '"><strong>' . MODULE_BOXES_SEARCH_BOX_ADVANCED_SEARCH . '</strong></a>' .
             '    </form>' .
             '  </div>' .


This is a great advance! Now all I need help with is to get the category and manufacturer filters working. I've compared my index.php code with the examples in the previous topic and can't see any notable differences.
