  1. I'm working with a client on their OSC store. They are in the business of conferences and wanted to be able to sell each session separately, all together, and then in packages of 6 (or another number of choice). Selling each separately is not an issue as that is what OSC does. :P All together is no problem either, just make it its own product. The "mini-sets" though is where it gets annoying. Because I can't update their site for the rest of my life, I need a way that they can easily make "mini-sets" with a custom number of choice (i.e. 2,3,4,5,6,etc). The idea is that they'll be able to pick any 6 sessions for a lower price. Currently, I've done this by using the attributes system. I've made 6 Options (Selection 1, Selection 2, etc.) and then I've made each session a value and added it to each option. This isn't a big deal for me because MySQL queries can make it easy.


    So with all that said, if there isn't already a contribution that would suffice, what I would like to do is create a script that reads the product names of a particular category, makes them into attribute values, and then inserts them into the option of choice. Now I know this is very possible, and potentially very very easy; however, I honestly have no idea where to start. :( :P Any help would be much appreciated. :)

  2. So I looked through the contributions and didn't see this, but it seemed like something that should be there...


    I want to limit the number of options that a customer can choose. I'll show you my example: http://ind.sethms.net/store/product_info.php?products_id=35


    I need customers to be able to pick only 5 options for this product, no more, no less, BUT I need them to have more options available to choose from. If you take a look at the product I linked to, you'll see what I mean. I know that this can be done very easily with javascript, maybe a bit of php...however, I'd also like this to be variable so I can have a different number of options for other products.


    There maybe a better way of doing this, but I was just trying to make use of features already in OSC.


    Thanks for any help.



  3. I have the SPPC mod installed, and am using it to price items based on the amount bought in a category. The mods seem to clash some, particularly in one spot, but I'm not sure how to correct it. I was wondering if a) there is a solution...as in maybe some one taking a look for me or B) if there is another mod that accomplishes the same thing.


    Thanks :)

  4. So I looked around the contributions and I saw a mod that sorta does what I want, but not exactly. I need a mod that will let me offer a product (such as an mp3) for download, like iTunes, while also being able to sell a hard copy. There is a mod for downloads, but it doesn't support other product options.


    Thanks for any help.

  5. I've looked quite a bit through the contributions index, but I figured it'd be wise to ask here. I'm using this shop for a client's site. He wants to be able to offer a special price for packages, like 6 CDs for $XX, to encourage people to buy more than just one. The thing is, he wants customers to be able to pick the CDs they want, so lets say there is a conference series of 18. He wants customers to be able to pick the 6 cds they want and then buy them at a discounted price.


    Is there a mod that would make this possible? Thanks for any of your input. :)
