Great idea!

How do you add one or more categories instead of adding each product one-by-one?

Cheers!

Thank you!

This addon isn't set up to do that. Unfortunately you have to add each product individually. Sorry.

Thanks,

Brandon

How do you do this with v3?

G'day Brandon,
The biggest issue with the included Related/Random Product block is that it loads ALL block products impeding on the performance and speed of the page. There must be a way to be able to load these 8 random products without impeding the performance of the site! (your add-on!)

Would it be feasible to modify your add-on so that it can add 'related products' in bulk? For example, selecting a category or sub-category and randomly selecting 8 products?

Currently if you setup 100 products to have half a dozen related products, when you perform a product upload, you must manually modify these 100 products again and add the newly added items. Most clients never bother doing this again as it is just too labour intensive.

I am hoping to obtain a more 'intelligent' add-on that can achieve this smoothly. Whether free or commercial, I would obviously be happy to reimburse you for your time!
Cheers!

Thank you!

Well now that 3.0 is out, I'd imagine that this will need to be redeveloped anyways. I'm definitely not against any improvements. Only loading the products that are displayed is a great improvement. Also, being able to select a category would be great.

Are you moving to 3.0 or are you wanting this for 2.2.4?

I can see what Alt-Team says about making this work for both. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. I'm cool with getting this upgraded and modified for 3.0, but it seems kind of silly to do it for 2.2.4.

Any other thoughts?

Thanks,

Brandon

I / we haven't upgraded any clients nor our own site (yet). I thought it best to allow v3.0 to 'mature' before taking the leap and investing time and resources to migrate, update, document processes, and train / retrain customers.
Also there was no tool available to migrate customer products, pages, content and other data (Migration Tool T.B.A.). Given the EXIM in v2.x.x has never handled comprehensive export of all fields for products, orders, customers, pages, settings, add-ons, etc - I would envisage this to take quite some time. (CS Support said it would require more credits for them to internally develop and cater for our requirements).

But I certainly think taking this to the next version is a great idea - perhaps even place a small price tag (v3 edition) to support updates and your other projects?

I'm not aware of how much has changed in the layout, hooks and structure of the code for this add-on to - so cannot judge how much time is required to maintain both versions.

I would indeed be pleased to see these changes made to the v2.2.4 add-on (however 'silly' :P) and where time or money permits, development on a v3.0 add-on.

Thanks for your time!

Cheers,

Thank you!

Why isn't this already installed in the latest version 3.0.1 of CS Cart? A rather important feature for any web store , which CS cart ignores?

Probably because there will always be 100's of things like this that many people would like to see implemented.

This is great addon, but it needs to be coded for v3 + additional options like :
- show products from selected category (-ies);
- show products from same category only ( when wieving product in group A I would like to see randon products at the botom but only from group A, same for products for other groups like B, C, D etc... )

And I would pay for this as well... if needed..

I'm not so sure you can get it free anymore. I'm pretty sure alt-team has it now and is charging.
Regards,
Jim
