Hi Zap

 

Jep you are right, that s important and I forgot to say.

I have only the text fields option type feature installed.

So I am not sure wether it works with the other contribution.

 

An other Problem is that i can t exclude affects on the runin Oscommerce.

I think there are non but i am not sure.

 

Other experiences with this feature are welcome.

 

Kind Regards

Hi

here is another important addition.

When you link a product option to a product you must NOT have a product option value defined.

But after linking you must define one.

This is very improvisational but it works.

Sorry that I didn t found out an easier solution.

 

Kind Regards

I have this contribution setup so that when a person enters something into the 2 text fields the price is supposed to go up 20 dollars each time. Well there's a slight problem with that in that it doesn't add the price to the total on the shopping cart page?

 

The shopping cart also doesn't display the products_options_name either. It just shows what is entered into the field not the actual name of the field filled in. Does anyone have any idea why it does this or if this is a bug or maybe how I can fix this?

ttoomey - Are you using the ConteZero contribution? If so, I'm not sure that anyone has the text fields working along with other option types. I myself haven't tried, so I can't verify that personally.

 

If you're using the Chandra modification, then I think some folks here could probably tell you how to fix your bug.

 

Let us know and mebbe even post you product_info.php options code here so we can take a look at it.

Sorry. I looked at your code quickly, but I'm not using the Chandra mod myself, so I couldn't compare it to mine. Anyone who is using it have any feedback?

feel free to do a test order the shop is not live. As you can see it shows up fine on the product info page but once getting to the shopping cart page the product_options_name dissappears and it does not upgrade the price to be 40 dollars more for filling in both fields.

 

The product_options_name also disappears in the invoice and packing slip pages too, and the checkout confirmation.

 

Do you recommend I use the other contribution? please respond asap I got a lunch meeting tomorrow with the big boss on this thing.

I am followwing the post from teksigns on page 2 for product_info.php

 

i was wondering.... i am using lindas sec1_0b and i wanted to ask in comparing the files, should i or should i not do the following:

 

the product_info.php

:

// show weight

if ($products_options['products_attributes_weight']!=0) {

 

the new recommendations state:

if ($products_options['options_values_price'] != '0') {

 

which should i keep ?

personally, my shop doesnt' care for about weight, but still is there something i should use ?

 

thanks.

Option Type text not showing in email?

 

I've installed the 1.4 contrib, and the text value stays up until the order confirmation, but when the emails go out, or the user checks their order history, all that is displayed is TEXT.

The thing is that i've been reading this forum (all 17 or 18 pages) and its soo confusing because people are jumping from some1 else contrib to this contrib. I ask if any1 has a good copy working, to please zip it and share with the rest of us.

 

Thanks.

you must have a problem in your db, make sure your 0 sql entry is the TEXT option in the product_options table

 

plus when making the actual setup in the product attributes administration you have to make sure you set the product_options_value to the TEXT row in the drop down box, I had the same problem and this fixed it.

Hey there, aboyz -

 

Well, you can get the latest contributions from the downloads section here:

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions

 

As far as getting these specific contributions, you can get Chandra's here:

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,160

 

and ConteZero's here:

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,766

 

NEITHER OF THESE HAS BEEN UPDATED TO WORK WITH MS2! In fact, both of them had issues working with MS1 and recent CVS snapshots as well. You could probably get them to work with MS2, but don't expect it to be just a matter of following the instructions and cutting and pasting - it will be a head-scratcher.

 

There is, however, an updated version of the attribute copier that does support MS2:

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,772

 

Unless you're in a rush (which you might be), I recommend you wait a little while and see what the community comes up with. I think that this is one of the most requested features in osC, and I hope that someone with some contribution experience will release a super option manager that will make all of us sigh with relief when we see it. In the next week or two, I wouldn't be surprised to see a number of new contributions or "Updated for MS2" revisions.

Will this allow uploading a file to update the attributes fields for items? I'm currently using Easy Populate (does that do it by chance? If so, what's the field name, and syntax for that field?)

 

Looks like I might end up writing a script on my own to add the items to the database.

I have Chandra's contribution working perfectly with 2.2-MS1.

 

Here is a store under development if you would like to see it in action.

 

http://ladybugbooks.net/default.php

 

This is a personalized book dealer. Each book has 10-15 text fields.

 

Payment modules are on so don't complete the order, but you can go as far as the confimation page to see the options listed. The store goes live in a day or two.

 

I am only using the text options, haven't tried the radio or check boxes.

 

Let me know if I can help.


God Bless,

Tracy Gibson

Has anybody read these options into the database via a script (like Easy Populate - which obviously doesn't do options) yet? If so, how did you do it? I've found no good way to, so I'm writing a script that will submit to the database for ya!

So like do any of these work with snapshot 5/18/2003 ?

Please do let me know.

Any1... please..

 

thanks.

 

I got Chandra's contribution working with the 5/18 snapshot and Linda's SEC 1.0b contribution without too much problem. If you are looking for just adding text box attributes, then you shouldn't have too much problem integrating the two. There are some queries that Linda has modified that you would need to add Chandra's changes to, so you need to watch for those.

 

If you are wanting check boxes and radio button attributes, you are in for a lot more work, since several have tried but I'm not sure if anyone has succeeded and if they have, they haven't graced the community with an updated contrib.

If all you want is radio buttons and checkboxes, then you can make the ConteZero contribution work with that snapshot (see my posts above for the edits that made it work for me). But if you want radio buttons, check boxes, AND working text fields, then you may have a challenge on your hands. Speaking as someone who is using the ConteZero mod, I would advise you NOT to use that one if you want to make text fields work.

Yes. I require only the text fields.

Which queries do i need to make this happen.

What do i need to do to integrate them.

 

Thanks gpraceman, for all your assistance.

Thanks too every1 else too..! :D
