Hi,

I am new to the OpenCart product and looking to implement it for a charity I help with. I am looking to do the following right now:
  • Have a different email header on order confirmations from that of the image in the store. Right now it looks like it uses the store image and I don't want that
  • Pending on a product that is purchased (could even be by category) I want to include different information or have a different email sent. What is the best way of handling this? Is there a field I can use on the product?
Is the best way to do this all through a module of some sort? email manager?

Thanks in advance.

- catalog/view/theme/<your_theme>/template/mail folder

It would be more than editing a simple field. The Opencart cart core file handles the products in the cart page by products, quantity, option, recurring with a token. Adding a category ID relatively would take extensive coding to achieve your request. To buy sometime, I would rather suggest to look into the Marketplace for an extension. If none can be found, you could also post a new inquiry into the Commercial Support section of the forum to get this done as a custom job.

Thanks for the reply.

Are you saying for the email header that there is no way to manage that within the admin side itself (besides using the company logo) that it needs to be hard coded within the template? if so I am fine with that, just want to make sure there wasn't a better way.

Thanks

Correct, they are hardcoded.

- catalog/view/theme/<your_theme>/template/mail folder - look for these lines:

Code: Select all

<div style="width: 680px;"><a href="{{ store_url }}" title="{{ store_name }}"><img src="{{ logo }}" alt="{{ store_name }}"
