    I'm still coding some bonuses, and this might be one if we can think of a way to code it "simple" but also "useable".. Caveats It's important(ish) that when a URL is in the search engines...that URL stays as it is. With that in mind 1. new admin page where you can make "redirects", eg; Blue Widget -> Purple Wodget Red Doofer -> Pink Doofus 2. content module for product_info, this grabs the redirect and outputs a message "discontinued but we recommend..." So, if they end up on the "Blue Widget" page, they see; <div class="alert alert-danger"> <p class="lead">This product is discontinued...</p> <p>We recommend our <a href="abc.com/product_info.php?products_id=123">Purple Wodget</a> instead...</p> </div> That is workable and simple... And, no core code changes...

    Bonus #5 - Product Redirect Message Allows shopowner to easily set up a redirect from [old] product to [new] product. Perhaps your old product is out of stock? Perhaps you just want to make shoppers realise there is a better alternative? Perhaps you are running low on stock of old product? I'm sure there are many reason how and why this could be useful to you. If a product has no redirect...the message does not show. Core Code Changes None Admin Side (new link in box) Admin Side (page for setting up redirects) Shop Side (message in product_info) Conclusion Simple way to let your customers know of a different alternative. Your Task Think of ways in which this can be extended to better suit your own needs. You, shopowner, know your demographic better than anyone else. Sending out Tomorrow.

    I would advice to never delete a product - in my experience the old / inactive / discontinued products do very well for mr G (why? short HTML? I have never had a clue ..). We use the discontinued product to point to suggested alternatives. We have a modularized product_info.php for Discontinued produsts (for which we use an extra product status : Eg 0 = inactive / 1 = active /- 2 = discontinued). The modularized page we can also use to show attachments for the discontinued product - because that's often why customers use the discontinued model in their serach in the first place. And we can point to alternative categories or products of the manufacturer ... So al lot of possibilties!

    Hello, What's the function of save "products_stock_attributes" in "orders_products"? I can not find the use, but I think it will be there for something EDITED: the reason is "tep_remove_order" Best regards :)

    My thought is, always, to try to keep things as simple as possible. Doing things that way...gets a useable "thing", but that thing because it is quite simple is usually also easy to further change. makes sense, no? Do you think the above (simple!) "redirect" idea could be useable for you ? Will send on bonus imminently.

    I had so many problems with customers and recaptcha, this is what I did. Not had a complaint since and really easy to code.

    @ArtcoInc And what an important 1000 post it was. I would have expected something like "HURRAY! Post #1000!"

    Bonus #4 - Price Changing On The Fly Works in every currency. Lots of people wanted this... Core Code Changes None Video (watch the price as the select options are changed) This is one of the modules that was sent out for testing, and was late in coming back to me. This will be sent out later today or perhaps tomorrow.

    Bonus #3 - Country of Manufacture I've made a way to allow the shopowner to add "country of manufacture" to each product. Any product with an assigned country shows a little label like this; There are some core code changes, but only in files that you wish the label to show; - index module - product listing module Admin Side, for assigning countries => no core code changes
