URGENT: Various problems


Guest

:whaasup:

 

Hi there,

 

unfortunately nobody replied to my last 3 or 4 posts. I hope I am not an outlaw :cry:... Please give me a hug or even better read this post ;-).

 

I am getting close to live date and I have still a view problems I couldn't solve yet. So I give it another try...

 

1. I would like to display the full category of each product. This would be especially helpfull for the new products. I am talking about a similar function as the "breadcrumb" but for each product within an overview. (e.g. if I have a product "xyz" in DVDs >> Action I want to display next to my product "Category: DVDs >> Action)

 

2. I would always like to show all products in a list, if you click on the category, no matter what level. E.g. if I have a category "DVDs" with 100 DVDs in it, a click on this category should show all 100 products (of course those will be seperated into x pages). Within the DVDs category I have let's say an "action" category which inlcudes 40 DVDs. If you click on this category the list will only show those 40 DVDs. Those 40 DVDs are part of the 100 total.

 

3. I would need kind of "sub products". Let me explain: I have a photo story and I want to sell each photo seperately as well. These single photos should be only visible when called from the actual photo story details page. So when I have 200 single photos I do not consider that I have 200 seperate products even that customers should be able to buy them seperately in the end.

 

Please tell me if you need more information regarding the above points. I know these questions are quite difficult, but I have seen that are some osCommerce gods out there.

 

Thanks for lighting up my mind :idea:

 

Best regards

 

Matt

Ooops forgot one...

 

Please don't "ignore" my previous post, when I add a point here ;-)

 

I have downloadable products, which generally work fine, but if I click on the "buy now" button I get forwarded to the details page instead of adding the item to the cart automatically. The download option is my only attribute, so there is not need for this extra step.

 

Is there any way to bypass this?

 

I've found the "How To Make The 'Buy Now' Buttons Work With Options" within the FAQ section and tried method 2 which didn't do any difference at all. Maybe a mistake on my side or I am looking at the wrong thing here?! (http://www.oscommerce.com/community/faq,5-24/q,47)

 

Thanks again,

 

Matt

Since this is already the breadcrumb in the products detail page, where are you looking to implement this functionality?

There is a contribution that I believe is called All Products List or something like that. I think that it provides the functionality that you are looking for.

I do not think that this is possible. If each of the pictures are not defined as a separate products, then osC will not be able to check them out. Then again, perhaps I am misunderstanding what you desire.

A quick thought would be to modify the code that generates the Buy Now link to go to the shopping_cart.php file instead of the product_info.php file when the item is virtual (i.e. downloadable).

Hi,

 

Since this is already the breadcrumb in the products detail page, where are you looking to implement this functionality?

 

I would need the breadcrumb for each product. This has two reasons.

 

1st I believe it is a valuable information within the new products page, because it is not always obvious in which category the product resides. It would be great to have that also as a link so people could click the category next to the product and then get all products out of this category.

 

2nd, I am displaying products in a different style regarding which category they are in. I am achieving this at this moment by analysing the product name. I believe the better way would be to find out the category in the first place.

 

 

There is a contribution that I believe is called All Products List or something like that. I think that it provides the functionality that you are looking for.

 

Are you talking about http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...ions,137/page,2? This shows a list off all products, mostlikely for spiders. What I am looking for is a way to limit the results displayed for each category, having in mind that the categories above always include the the items underneith all subcategories. I don't know how else to explain.

 

 

I do not think that this is possible. If each of the pictures are not defined as a separate products, then osC will not be able to check them out. Then again, perhaps I am misunderstanding what you desire.

 

OK, let me explain again. I have photo sets as my products. On the details page I would like have a link "buy photos seperatly". To show these seperate photos somewhere else wouldn't make any sence.

 

 

A quick thought would be to modify the code that generates the Buy Now link to go to the shopping_cart.php file instead of the product_info.php file when the item is virtual (i.e. downloadable).

 

I've tried that. The button calls the default.php. There a function checks wether the product has attributes or not. If I disable this function the products is put in the cart directly (as I want) but unfortunately the attribute is not added to the product, so it is not downloadable anymore.

 

Regards

 

Matt
