Need Dependent Options working with Options Boost or Similar

Hi All,

We have the "dependent options" module, and this is so that we can sell different sized (leg length & waist size) jeans on our store, but we now have come across an issue with automating stock-keeping, and we really need something like options boost, so that we can add SKU's & Barcodes of our products for different sizes.

Does anyone know of any way that we can accomplish this? I didn't want to go ahead and simply try to install options boost when it says there are known conflicts between the 2...

Some help would be extremely appreciated, as i'm sure other stores must have come across this same issue...

Regards,

Luke @ Designer Man

We have Colour Picker Dependent Plus (http://marketinsg.com/colour-picker) but it isn't adding SKU at the moment. Will be looking to add in optional SKU in the near future (perhaps in a month). You might want to keep in check for the new features if you require it

We really need it basically just for the SKU & Manufacturer Part Number requirement. Maybe we should go ahead and try and work around the conflicts of dependent options with options boost... :-/

They may "unofficially" work. rph used to include a file that would allow the 2 mods to work together.
However, I recently updated Options Boost to make it MORE compatible with other mods. Functionally it is the same, but the code is more inline rather than overwriting, so it may help make integration easier now. But it also may not. And I'm not sure rph still includes that vqmod script to make them work toghther.

I have been working on adding chained options to options boost but I may wait for 2.0 to release it as a new mod with additional features because it's a larger job and thus costs a bit more. I should have it working by weeks end and perhaps I can offer it as an upgrade to boost for now for a nominal fee to existing owners

Qphoria, if you could, drop me a mail at: luke . potts @ live . co . uk
If we could come together and get such a module working for us we would be over the moon! Right now we've got a lot of niggly hassle and it's time-wasting and extremely annoying. Haha.

Thank you very much for your time,

Luke
