Seperate Pricing Per Customer v3.5

Recommended Posts

Pricing per x quantity is another contribution. The one I briefly looked at, added columns to the table products (the table where products_price is found). The prices for customers_groups are in another table: products_groups.....

 

To have the functionality of pricing per x quantity added to this one (I believe there are several different ones) will probably mean a substantial rewrite of the code - not looking forward to that.

Thanks for your fast response!

 

I may have made it sound more complicated than it really is... the wholesale folks buy by the case, but not all the cases have the same quantity in them. So I need a way to just display some special text that only wholesale customers would see, that tells them how many is in a case... but it would just be one price per customer group, not actually adding x quantities. Does that clarification make sense?

 

Thanks!

Installation issue with my Categories box, otherwise the software is great! I keep getting this error.

 

1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax near '-_db' at line 1

 

show table status from xxxx_-_db (xxx is the name of db)

 

[TEP STOP]

 

the url it is trying to access is http://www.xaudiocovers.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=25

 

A little background, i did the manual install and had a few hicups along the way but otherwise it went smooth, long but smooth. But since, I all ready had my Linkpoint Contrib and mulitple product images working sufficiently i decided to go the manual route.

 

With my lack of knowlege on what is happening without having a specific location to look for I am at a loss.

 

This is a live site and I need to get it fixed ASAP, otherwise I will be forced to roll it back.

 

Any help will be appreciated.

1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax near '-_db' at line 1

According to the mysql website this statement was added in MySQL 3.23. Could it be that you are working with a really old mysql version? If so, that means big trouble, because this contribution depends on a few features that were added to the 4 series of MySQL, which I assumed would by now be generally used.

SHOW TABLE STATUS works likes SHOW TABLE, but provides a lot  of information about each table. You can also get this list using the  mysqlshow --status db_name command. This statement was added in MySQL 3.23.

Well i just verified that i am using the following MySql from the site admin panel

 

Welcome to phpMyAdmin 2.5.6

 

 

MySQL 3.23.58 running on localhost as jstumpf@localhost. Now where should i look? Thanks for the help. I have no idea or even concept of how to start to try and debug this error.

 

I only have two contribs installed. Linkpoint and Big Images

I ran the following query in PhPAdmin and got these results. same as my previous post, notice that the error is being caught on the hyphenated character.

 

Database xaudiocovers_com_-_db running on localhost

 

 

Error

 

 

SQL-query?:?

 

 

SHOW TABLE STATUS FROM xaudiocovers_com_ - _db

 

 

MySQL said:

 

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax near '- _db' at line 1

 

[Documentation]???[back]

 

Now it seems to me that the way my hosting company names it's databases might be causing the problem. Is the naming convention wrong for the DB?

Janet,

So I need a way to just display some special text that only wholesale customers would see, that tells them how many is in a case... but it would just be one price per customer group, not actually adding x quantities.
I think that wouldn't be too hard to do. For that you would have to add php to the product description (like <?php if ($customer_group_id != '0') { echo 'Buy by case of 8'; } ?> ) and then make sure that the product description is eval'ed before echo'ed. This has been discussed a number of times on the forums:

Instead of an echo you could also include a file that contains the html/text that you want to show the wholesale customers.

Greetings All!

 

OK, I installed this contribution early last week, found that first bug, fixed it... but then I became extremely busy, so I haven't had time to look into this issue until now:

 

With regards to the shopping cart box that you see on the upper right... whenever I add a product there now, the product shows up, but no price, and the total shows up as $0.00 all the time.

 

I'm assuming that this isn't the way it's suppossed to be? I mean, the $0.00 total is an obvious problem with my install. But I was wondering if it's suppossed to show a price next to each item as well, or is that not displayed and all we're suppossed to see is a total?

 

 

Thanks!

Excellent! Thank you for the leads. I'll check them out and see what I can accomplish with this contribution. It sounds perfect!

JanZ,

 

Thanks i just tried that approach on my PHPAdmin and it works great, now all i have to do is make the mod in database.php if adding the back ticks do not work in the congif file first.

 

Love this stuff, many thanks.

 

According to http://www.unitedforums.co.uk/vb/archive/i....php/t-675.html it should help if you put backticks around the table name (personally I don't even know where they are on my keyboard ;) ). The "problem" code is in the new functions in: includes/functions/database.php

No, you shouldn't see $0.00 as a total, but you do are supposed only to see a total.

 

With SPPC there is no deviation from the standard behaviour of that box (at least not intended ;) ).

JanZ,

 

My site is up and running now thanks to your input. I marked the code mod for other unfortunate souls who may have their database names embedded with Hyphens (hosting company derived).

 

I can now test the Contrib, will keep everyone posted.

Well I have it installed and the hardest part was removing reference to SPPC 3.5 :'(

But I have a weird problem. When I go to custmers in admin it showes I have none. I have since set up fake custmers and nothing. I can see the orders and custmer info in the order screen but nothing in the custmers section????....I'm stuck :(

I am looking for help integrating this great contrib with two others:

 

Printable Catalog

My Webpage

 

Quick Price Updates

My Webpage

 

Wondered if anyone installing this contrib had modified these two to work along side. I've looked through both and am just too much of a newbie to figure out how and where to add code for the right queries from SPPC...

Has someones installed this mod to make it work with OscMax package?

 

If so, I would like to get in touch, I am having a few problems with (most of the time) the BTS template mod that isn't always obvious for implementing the new SPPC module and have a few questions.

If there isn't anybody around installing this mod on oscmax, maybe someone is trying to install it with the BTS template mod?

 

Thanx.

 

I just finished the install and am debugging it now. The "What's New" box is broken but I've seen that others are having the same problem.

 

Most of the files in catalog/ have to be broken into the two pieces that BTS is set up for - one in catalog/ and the other half in catalog/templates/templatename/content/. I've got all of the files modified and broken down into the proper directory structure and would be happy to email it to you to use or at least reference if you'd like. Send me an email if so...

Well after reading the post a quick bug fix took care of the problem :thumbsup:

 

 

Now for the last question ( I hope) I have scrolling specials installed does any one know how to incorporate that box into SPPC? right now the scrolling special shows all the curent specials with all the different prices??

Any help would be great.

You will have to change the mysql query of that mod, no way around that. It should take the customers_group_id into account. Look at includes/boxes/specials.php from SPPC 4 for inspiration ;)

Ok thanks a lot I'll give it a try. :D

BTW I also have featured products. Any suggestions on that?

Sorry, don't know that contribution. Should be solvable though, through changing the mysql query. Probably something similar as the new products box I suppose.

Hi everyone, this is a very nice contrubtion, well done!

Can anyone point me in the direction to change scrolling special box and Featured products to work with SPPC? I am lost and really don't understand what part of the code is mysql querry. if someone can give an example or if needed I can attache the two files.

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

look for tep_db_query thats the query command.

the stuff inside the ( )'s is what the query is suposed to "do"

 

basically look for the word query in your file.

that's the area you will need to modify.

As suspected the code for the query is really very similar. Just changing a few names and chopping of: limit " . MAX_RANDOM_SELECT_SPECIALS) is enough to get you going:

// next line original code
/*  $rp_query = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, pd.products_name, p.products_price, p.products_tax_class_id, p.products_image, s.specials_new_products_price from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p, " .

 if(!tep_session_is_registered('sppc_customer_group_id')) { 
 $customer_group_id = '0';
 } else {
  $customer_group_id = $sppc_customer_group_id;
 }

 if ($customer_group_id == '0')  {
     $rp_query = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, pd.products_name, p.products_price, p.products_tax_class_id, p.products_image, s.specials_new_products_price from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p, " .

WOW!! Thanks it works! I should be able to figure the featured product and I will post it when it is done.

 

Now.....one last problem. Retail is not the default group. I think the problem is this part of the install I didn't understand:

INSERT INTO customers_groups VALUES('0','Retail','1','0');

I don't know how to do it. I have the custmers_group table but I can't figure out how to add values to a table >_< . Thanks for the help! :D
