I have just purchased this excellent mod for a new ink cartridge website.

In its original form I can not use it as it requires a year, from too, I just need a printer model name in one box, can you help me alter this in admin/product?

Live Long and Prosper!

well honestly the admin portion would be the easiest part to mod. The hard part is that it mods every query in the store, and those would all have to be changed. if you are just wanting to use a single year for each one just put the same year in both fields. If you use the import you can just do one then copy the whole row over.

@alex1 yes it requires vqmod. If you don't want to use vqmod you'll have to use the vqmod file as a guide for what to change.

My problem is that I want to put a printer number in that box, say R300 or BC10 and it it will not do that, what do I need to change to facilitate that.

Your help would be greatly appreciated in doing this.

hmmm well that's not going to be all that easy. in the admin it's escaped as an int, and the database field is an int, so those would have to be changed. Even more problematic is that all the queries are set to do greater than and less than for the years.

Xsecrets do you think that you will be able to do the alteration?

As I PM'd you I will pay to have it altered as its outside the mod designed function, its just frustrating that a great product like opencart does not have the type of filter that I require for selling ink cartridges and yours is so close, you could market it as Manufacturer/Brand/Model.

Anyway let me know if you can help.

Yeah I'll get back with you. I'm doing alot of work on it this weekend that might help facilitate what you want. I'm making it so that you can apply the filter without having to select all three options because I've had several requests for that, and I'm going to add the engine because I've had several requests for that. Once that's done I think it would be fairly simply to have you use the make/model/engine and just skip the year. The queries will work themselves out fine once I'm done, and after that is should be a pretty simple template change to remove the year dropdown.

Hello, after what seemed like a lot of searching for a YMM solution. I like yours the best across a lot of different shopping carts. So I did the paypal thing and installed it this morning via wamp aka localhost. Nice!

I want to ask a question...

Does it require a lot more code to pull off YMM as opposed MMY? When I envisioned my site I had always thought the drop downs would be like the big boys. aka...
Year
Make
Model

I knew I was buying MMY from you so that's not an issue at all. I just want to understand from a dev's point of view why all the different open source systems only have MMY.

well the way I wrote it everything flows from make. once you choose make then it pulls up models that are in that make. once you choose model it pulls up a year range that matches the make/model It doesn't pull only years that match it just goes from the first year match to the end, so it's not perfect, but not terribly likely to have no matches. And in the new version that I just uploaded the engine works the same way it pulls engines that belong to that make/model combo. The problem with doing the year first is that then you would have to define your begin and end range somewhere, and it would likely contain many years that are not going to be covered by the make/model that you will eventually choose, so you would be more likely to filter and have nothing left to show.

So after that long winded explanation yes it would be a bit difficult to change, and in my opinion hurt the customer experience.

Thank you for the insight on your module. Your post certainly helped me understand your perspective. I didn't want to change your module I knew going in the way you built it. I was just trying to understand the why, which is the customer experience. I am all for getting them to the correct part then the check out. Very cool man...

Would I be able to get a copy of your new release?

where did you purchase the module? from the extension store or my site? If you purchased it from the extension store it should be available to download, if you got it from my site the new file did not get pushed to old orders, so until it's fully tested and replaces the old release just reply to your order email asking for the new version and I will mail it to you.

that's pretty amazing. I had no idea. I can't believe it's number 3 even before the magento mod. I just added that mod a couple of weeks ago.

if you purchased from my site you will have to email me requesting the new version till it is fully tested and replaces the old version, as I have no way to push it out to old orders. If you purchased from the extension store you should see the v2-beta.

well it should work in it's current state. I have a few people using it now, and not too many issues. I fixed a couple of bugs this morning, and I have one more thing that I need to do tonight, but it's not a show stopper.

Well It wasn't really a bug, so much as one portion that had not been updated to work with some of the new features, but it's been updated and uploaded now. Currently There are no known issues with the new beta version.
