#250092 Free Addon To Create Individual Product Codes From A Single Product Code (For...

Posted by bytraper on 10 May 2016 - 03:14 AM

Jack,

It's not an addon we bought from them, its an addon we paid them to create for us, to be able to do whatever we like with. I have no problem with them selling it, but I am annoyed that they didn't ask us first. It wasn't their product to sell.
 

I always give away stuff I pay to have made to help grow the community and I appreciate other store owners that do the same. The whole idea behind us paying to have it created was to solve a problem that we had and to also help others that may be in the same situation as us. When you give back, you help the cart community grow.

 

The more people that use the cart, the bigger everything gets and the more that is available for all of us.




#249798 Free Addon To Create Individual Product Codes From A Single Product Code (For...

Posted by bytraper on 05 May 2016 - 04:59 AM

Hi Guys and girls,

we had this custom module made specifically for us by Cart Power (excellent work by them I might add) because we needed to be able to sell a single product, using a single code which was actually made up of parts with multiple part numbers. Think of a souped up version of "Buy Together"

 

For example, we sell a motor and a gearbox, but the problem for us is that while it's all under a single part number, its actually made up of the motor, the gearbox, the coupling, the spider and the rubber boot! All these parts have their own codes which we need to account for with each sale of the item.

Normally this isn't a problem because your accounting package will take the code and break into its individual components, but if you use something like Xero then you'll find by default it can't do this.

 

The problem began for us when we purchased Xero accounting software, which is hooked directly into our cart. The inventory management in Xero by default is VERY weak, but there are third party modules available to increase the capacity of the inventory management but these cost a small fortune per month to use (the cheapest being $150 each month!)

Obviously we didn't want to pay that when we could have a custom module made for us, and so we decided to go this route and had the module custom built and can do the part number management from the cart's side.

 

The module works really well and will work with cs-cart V4.3 through to the latest version of the cart.
It may work for earlier versions of the cart (v4.1 or 4.2), but it hasn't been tested under any version below what we were using when we had it built (4.3). 

 

It was really well made by Cart Power and all the bugs we could find in the module were all fixed by Cart Power, so I think it's pretty well free of bugs now. If you DO find bugs however, please report them here so that I can have the module fixed.

 

In the spirit of helping the community, we are giving it away to others who may need this as the development costs for it were very high, and so we hope that it may be useful to others to help you save some money if you need a solution (just like we did)

 

Installing it is as simple as copying the files to the standard directories. 

If you use this a thank you would be nice and will make us feel better for the amount it cost us!

#209030 Fix If Your Product Position Numbers Are Randomly Changing Or Not Saving (4.2.4)

Posted by bytraper on 25 March 2015 - 02:30 PM

This bug has been driving us nuts since we upgraded from 4.2.1 to 4.2.4
We sell motors from 6w through to 100w, but since the upgrade, all the positioning information was somehow corrupted.

So we would have 40W, then 6w, then 80w, then 45w, then 65w etc etc and everytime we tried to change the positioning using the numbers, cs-cart would seemingly randomly throw everything into different positions and change the numbers by itself!!!!

Here is a fix for that

Download
fn.catalog.php from app/functions/

Make a backup copy.

Find this in the fn.catalog.php
if (in_array('categories_filter', $params['extend'])) {$category_filter_avail_cond = str_replace('?:categories', 'categories_filter', $category_avail_cond);$join .= " INNER JOIN ?:products_categories as products_categories_filter ON products_categories_filter.product_id = products.product_id INNER JOIN ?:categories AS categories_filter ON categories_filter.category_id = products_categories_filter.category_id $category_filter_avail_cond ";$condition .= fn_get_localizations_condition('categories_filter.localization', true);}

Now change it to this:

if (in_array('categories_filter', $params['extend'])) {$category_filter_avail_cond = str_replace('?:categories', 'categories_filter', $category_avail_cond);$join .= " INNER JOIN ?:products_categories as products_categories_filter ON products_categories_filter.product_id = products.product_id INNER JOIN ?:categories AS categories_filter ON categories_filter.category_id = products_categories_filter.category_id $category_filter_avail_cond ";$fields['categories_position'] = $sortings['position'] = 'products_categories_filter.position';$condition .= fn_get_localizations_condition('categories_filter.localization', true);}

I have confirmed with cs-cart that this is a bug in the current version of the code, but others have had this problem too, so I don't know why they didn't post the fix. C'mon guys help each other out, if just one of you had posted this fix, I wouldnt have had to wait a week and a half for cs-cart support to tell me this!


Thank you for your message.

I am glad that the issue is resolved now. Yes, the problem is caused by a bug in the current CS-Cart version.

Thank you.




#194786 Cs-Market Review

Cs-market
These guys are currently building us a shipping mod.

They are gradually fixing it up each time we post the new bugs to them. It takes them time to do this.
It is frustrating, because they fix one problem and create two more.

Sergey is a good guy to deal with.
