In Topic: Category Structure

29 April 2014 - 09:42 PM

To give this real life context. One of our big products are seats. We sell them for multiple industries that have little product crossover, so creating 1 category of “seats” wouldn’t be appropriate. Or at least as far as I know it wouldn’t be… maybe the best way is to handle that with a filter? I guess thats why I'm reaching out to the CS-Cart community. :grin:

So for example, I started building it out like so:


Tractors

-Seats
—Seat Covers

Lawn care
-Seats

Construction equipment

-Seats

Semi

-Seats
—Seat Covers



I'm not sure of the best way to give a unique name to to our simple categories (such as “seats”) in each industry. This is only one example of category crossover that doesn’t share product crossover.
 Thats why I’m wondering if I’m supposed to be doing something like “Tractors > Seats > Seat Covers” as a single category (This is how OpenCart has it set up in a demo), or nested as the above example. I'm also confused about if this needs to be done in the category name, or if it just needs to be a uneque SEF URL in the add-ons tab.

Does anyone who uses CS-Cart use git?

Thanks raff! I don't think I would have ever thought to look there.

In Topic: Product Features

03 April 2014 - 02:10 PM

That is the solution I found, but as I mentioned its a total hack, its confusing and not usability friendly. It would be nice (and best) if I could edit the current features tab to contain an html block.

What I ended up doing is disabeling the default features tab and creating a new product tab named 'Features' with an HTML block. However, now it's not visable in the features area and the field for features is gone while editing the product. I can add info to it through 'block settings' link in the Product tabs area of the product editor. This is far from intuitive and will become a large pain point when less technical staff take on roles of adding/editing content.
