Alternative Administration System: Categories/Products

Recommended Posts

In 0.2.1 is there a add new product function included?

 

No. Its more complicated to be done via ajax because of the images and extra images upload...

That feature will be developed in a future version. When I have more time.

Notes about AAS:

 

When you have enabled the manufacturers column display, then AAS queries all the available manufactures and cache them. So if you go back to the default osc and add new or edit the manufacturers, those changes will not appear in the AAS because of the cache. You must logout and then login again. I made it like this because I don't want on every page refresh AAS to call the select manufactures query.

 

The same thing happens with the tax_class_title

 

But in next version I will put an option in the config.php where you can disable cache or a button in the settings dialog which will clear that cache.

 

There is also a "small bug", which occurs when you have not select a manufacturer for a product and have enabled the manufacturers column display.

Those "manufacturer orphan products" wont be displayed by AAS (if you have enabled the column manufacturers).

 

Currently testing - debugging the AAS v0.2.1, If you want to test - debug it before I release it, contact me.

 

Thank you.

I have just installed your addon and I am getting an error for everything I try to do within the A.A.S. section. I get the following:

Error: cannot find language file:

ext/aas/languages/english/aas.php

 

However the file is in file manager in proper location. I went through all instruction again to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Hello Tracy.

 

This error occurs because you have selected a different default language other than english. If so that error occurs. So go back to the default osc admin panel and change your language to english and then go back to AAS.

 

I know its frustrating and in the newer version if you use a different language than default (english) and there is no language file for AAS then load the default english and not produce that error.

v0.2.1 progress info:

 

fixed almost every bug found.

 

Improved code.

Now you can set manufacturer to none and class tax to none.

In v0.2 when changing a setting on the fly it was stored in $_SESSION for example: $_SESSION['entriesPerPage'].

In v 0.2.1 all session variables are stored under $_SESSION['admin']['AAS'] for example: $_SESSION['admin']['AAS']['entriesPerPage'] that way when you logout those variables are unset.

Default language english is loaded when AAS cannot find a proper translation file.

Added products expected plugin as requested.

 

When version 0.2.1 will be released it will be also available in git.

I checked to make sure but I only have english. I am no expert but not a complete noob either and I can not figure this out. I even resaved english as the language just to be sure.

When you complete a search, you cannot tell what category that product can be found.

 

Yes that's true. I ll find a way to display that information. Perhaps you may have to click on a small icon to display a tooltip popup...

Popup works for me. To display the category it belongs to.

 

Will the new version have a different way of handling images? As you know, the default way is slow loading, and the addons available for thumbnailing do not work well in the administration side.

Perhaps I can build my own thumbnailer for making AAS loading images faster.

The thumbnails will be probably saved under admin/ext/aas/images/products/thumbs with the same filename but resized.

 

It would be much easier if by default osc used that feature. But....

Well is there a way to make KISSit work for the OSC admin side? We got so far, it's just that the class does not create thumbnails for the admin side, but it does call it properly

Hope you enjoyed your HOLIDAYS

 

Almost got KISSit working, just need it to be able to create the thumbnails that are not already present for the administration side.

 

Also, would help for a different layout to load new attributes. Drop down for the + or - directly in front of the number. An autocomplete for 2 decimal places on the attribute change amount. I'm not sure what the button does under the Attribute Options selection. It is a toggle.

Make it more noticeable the "

Filename | Expiry days | Maximum download count"

It is hard to remember that when there are a lot of different attributes for a single product.

 

Disallow Duplicate Attributes. When you Add A New Attribute, it auto selects the first attribute available. Causes mistakes when you have 5 attributes and 3 end up being the same Attribute.

Hi,

 

Great admin system, I have installed it on my 2.3.3.4 store, on php 5.4.21 and it seems to be working great.

 

One thing that I cant seem to correct is the tax class dropdown, I use Taxable and non taxable - but the dropdown is only displaying the taxable option - Have I missed something here?

 

Please see screenshot below

 

Many Thanks

Will the order change the order on the Catalog Frontend?

 

No, this is only for admin section and its only for finding attributes easily when have lots of them and want to edit them.

 

If wanted to be able to change the order in the frontend then it needs additional code (in products_info.php and in aas and a new sort_order field in products attributes table).

I will probably implement this as an extension...

Hello Attila.

 

I assume you use the version 0.2 which has some bugs that are corrected in the upcoming version 0.2.1.

If you want I can send you the 0.2.1. beta so you can test it and report me any bugs found.

 

But I am curious that bug should not happen... SO, please contact me in my skype account or in my email to check - test it again together...

 

Thank you.
