Search by Price Infobox

Recommended Posts

Search By Price Infobox contribution

 

Search by Price Infobox allows the shopper select from a price range in an infobox. Ideal for a gift shop type application. Each language can have different price brackets to allow for currency differentiations.

 

No database modifications required.

 

 

Version 2.4 allows you to select from a dropdown list format or text list style format.

 

Installation document updated to be easier to follow.

 

 

Known issue: Items special prices not taken into account so if an items price is usually 24.99 but is reduced to 19.99 it will still apear in the 20-30 bracket not 10-20. I hope to release a bug fix in the next few days.

Hi,

 

I installed this long wanted contrib. Very cool. However i have a little issue with it.

 

When i select for example: 10 to 20 euro products, it also shows products that cost more than 20 euro`s. For example 22.99.

 

Any way to fix this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi there

 

Are you using one currency or multiple currencies? Ditto with languages?

 

I did not encounter this on either the modified store I installed on first or the clean MS2 store I tested the mod on before uploading. Both of these were using single currency & language though.

 

LMK and I'll test with if necessary.

Hey thanks for this great Contribution.

 

Anyone else having problems paging to the next page in a listing?

 

I installed the price infobox contrib and all looks good. However when a price range has more than one page of items I am running into a problem...

 

When I click to page to the next page of the listing I get re-routed to the first listing ($0-$10 listing).

 

 

I tried changing my product_listing.php as I have the product listing module installed(shows items like the new products listing in 4 columns). I reverted back to the out of the box oscomerce product_listing.php but that didn't work...

 

So if any one else is having this problem give a shout here.

 

thanks ever so much

Well I answered my own question...partially

 

Apparently this contribution doesn't work so well with the Search engine safe URLs checked in the admin...

 

Does anybody have a work around for this??... as I'l like to use the safe URLs AND like the new contrib.

 

thanks in advance...

Once again I answer myself...

 

Should anyone have a problem with the paging due to Search engine friendly URLs here is the fix

 

 

in your catalog/includes/column_left.php (or right if you chose the right column)

 

change the:

 

include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'shop_by_price.php');

 

to:

 

if ((USE_CACHE == 'true') && empty($SID)) {

echo tep_cache_shop_by_price_box();

} else {

include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'shop_by_price.php');

}

 

That's it!

 

 

now this cool contribution should work with Search engine friendly URL's checked true (in the admin)

 

-ax

I like this contribution but I have several problems. It shows all my items "Out of Stock" and no "Buy Now" button.

I removed the buy now and quantity columns to temporarily (I hope) take car of that.

Has anyone gotten this contrib to work with Products Short Description v.2 and Stock Status in Product Listing v1.22?Far Horizons Gifts & Decor

Hello,

 

I need assistance. I would like to limit the price search to the manufacturers.

 

How do I make that?

Hi there,

 

A nice contribution. Is there any way it can be linked to show only the products in a particular price range from the category the customer is currently viewing, rather that the whole site?

 

Thanks

 

Dave

You could most likely modify it so that it would show the products in that category that are within a certain price band. You'd need to modify the shop_by_price.php file in the includes/boxes folder to pass the category name into the shop_by_price.php page in the catalog folder.

 

You would then edit the sql query to limit it by the category id.

 

Does that help at all?

Hi all.

 

I'm battling with the format of the currency - I want to remove the cents (.00) on the product prices within the Shop-By-Price contrib. Is this possible? eg "From $50 - $100" instead of $50.00, etc.

 

Can anyone guide me? Sorry for being such a newbie... :-"

 

Graci,

Lei

Hello, Dave and everyone.

 

PHP coding is very new to me. Have you been able to include codes that will add Specials in the appropriate shop-by-price search-results page?

 

Your help is much appreciated.
