I need to have multiple choices about flat rate.

Like it

- Ordinary Shipping


any way to do it via admin or something easy?

any solution will be appreciated

Would anyone be willing to explain how to do this?

I'm using the install for php4 and I would also like to be able to add other shipping options.

Thank you.

can't say what the exact steps would be, but i would imagine you could duplicate the flat rate module and just name each one differently, setting a different flat rate amount.

I've done it and it works

I've renamed the fallowing files
- shipping_flat.php (admin\controller) in shipping_flat2.php
- flat.php (catalog\extension\shipping) in flat2.php
- shipping_flat.php (admin\language\english\controller) in shipping_flat2.php
- shipping_flat.tpl (admin\template\dafault\content) in shipping_flat2.tpl
- flat.php (catalog\language\english\extension\shipping) in flat2.php

In every renamed file, I've replaced every part of code containing "flat" with "flat2" (I've done it automatically with dreamweaver)

In the admin panel -> extensions -> shipping ->insert this new extension with the parameters
Extension Name: Flat Rate 2
Description: Flat Rate Shipping 2
Code: flat2
Directory: shipping
File name: flat2.php
Controller: shipping_flat2

Remember to go in admin-> configuration -> users -> user group -> top administrator to set the permissions to modify and access the new extension

I hope it'll be useful! :*

I've given a look to my post because I didn't remember it.... what can I say? It works for me - I think that or you haven't followed all the passages or maybe the "problem" could be that I haven't done it locally but on the internet.... someone else has tried it? does it work or not for someone else? other solutions?

Trippy posted the right instructions for this.

If you are getting a blank screen, then either you haven't fully followed his instructions, or something else has gone wrong.

Have you checked your server's error log?
