My ISP used to have an automated upgrade, now they dont, and I remember the last time there were a lot of hassles and down time addressing from 1 to 2. Are there any marketing or reporting adding in to version 3 worth the hassles?

Question: If you have products that come in different sizes, on the DATA tab, I put in a total qty on hand, select YES to subtract stock, and select out of stock status "2-3 days". THEN on the OPTIONS tab where I want the stock subtracted to keep track of stock of each size, so I select YES and have a quantity in the field.

What setting would allow for an out of stock (0 qoh) item to show as a selection available on the web site so it could be ordered?

Right now with these settings, if QOH=0 that size isnt available online. I would think it would show up and allow an order but say 2-3 days.

How do you set the DATA page stock fields, and the OPTIONS tab fields if you have 0 qoh, and you can drop ship something, but want to reflect 2-3 days, but show all sizes available and for stock to be subtracted?

And other than just adjusting quantity into stock, is there a P.O. placed and received option?

Thank you

Regarding product features, v2.x and v3.x do not have any differences. Only past encountered bugs, backward compatibility re-work, re-addressing of TWIG files, implementation of TWIG files are pretty much involved in the v3.x releases for ease of developing as well as for XSS security over the theme / template files.
