Some of the products I am working with have a chain of options 5 levels deep, and the problem is that some of the lower links in the chain depend on more then one of the previous options.
This first two options are always available: "Note" and "Size". The next two are where the problem begins: There will be some "Type" with some "Gauge" available for every "Note" and "Size" but not all "Type" and all "Gauge" for every size.
Type is Chrome, Steel, Synthetic/Aluminium and Synthentic/Silver
Gauge is Light, Medium, Heavy.
Not all combinations of Type and Gauge are available for all Sizes of all Notes.
In size 4/4, all Gauges are available with at least one Type for all sizes and Notes
In size 3/4, Type Chrome is only available in Gauge:Light for Note:E whereas Types Steel, Synthetic/Aluminium and Synthentic/Silver are available in Gauges Medium and Heavy for certain other notes
To make matters worse, there is one more dependency beyond that: the "Ending" option (Ball or Loop)
The problem is there is always multiple dependencies in both directions. It seems it would work if one of the following were true:
) Multiple parent options were available for selection: or
) If it was possible to exclude certain sub options from certain parent options, i.e. no "heavy" gauge under E > 3/4 > Chrome (excludes, like negative keywords in Google AdWords); or
) Combinations of parents could be made into pairs and then child options assigned to those pairs.
) Duplicate size option "grids" could be created in parallel that had the same name and similarly named values but different collections of child options applied to those values, i.e. Size_A for for Note_E, Size_B for Note_E, and Size_A and Size_B have different Types assigned.
I'm sorry if my explanation is not clear, it's a simple problem but seems difficult to describe. Out of 5 options, not all combinations of Options 3, 4 and 5 are available for all combinations of 1 and 2.
I'm attaching a screenshot of the table that dictates what combinations of child options go together.
It's almost like I need IF / AND statements. Show Gauge:Heavy if Type = Chrome AND Size=4/4 AND Note = E . . .
Any recommendations welcome, and I would consider commercial support as well.

Create a diagram of how the options are supposed to be laid out and send it to the support email address and I'll see if I can give you some suggestions.
But if I use an old version of OpenCart coupled with your extension and a previous release of OptionsBoost wouldn't that essentially be the same setup as when the two were compatible? I'm just looking for the capability to image swap, I don't care about the additional SKU fields etc. How difficult is it to make those two functionalities play nice with each other?

You offer a download for OC 1.5.1 but you stipulate compatibility for OC 126.96.36.199 or later - is it compatible with my 1.5.1?
Is there a way to hide the (+£1.00 etc) from the options drop down?
thanks in advance

I am so grateful that I have found your extension its nearly what I am looking for. I just have two questions.
1. Is it possible to have your extension but based on QTY rather than on the parent option?
2. Would it still work if I removed the qty box, if so how would I remove it?

Hope this helps?
Code: Select all
A required option must have at least 2 different parent option values!
For example I need that for every size, chaing color every price will change.
Medium red = 9
Medium yellow = 10
MEdium white= 11
Small red= 8
Small red = 6
smalle white= 13
all prices are continuosly changing. is that possible?
Like filling a table of prices.
