How to accomplish this with Virtuemart???
« on: June 10, 2018, 23:16:15 pm »
Hi there all.

First off I'm using Joomla 3.8.8 and VM 3.2.14

I'm building a florist website and setting up the shopping cart now.  I saw this on another website I want to create on this florist website but clueless as to how to do it.  ANY help?  Hints?  I want to allow the end user to pick the price and addons like in the screen shot provided below.

Any pointing of direction would be great, Thanks ahead of time for the help.  See the screen shot I have added.

Hi

This can be achieved in two ways:
1. This is simplest and can be achieved by making custom fields and then apply them to a product. You have to prepare your custom fields with options list available for a product, like-variant of a product, and additional topping/add-on over a product.
2. If you have a general list of topping/add-on and you want to apply those list in bulk over some product(s), so that you don't have to manually work again and again then you can take help of any third party developer.

Hey thanks ANANT and for the other post as well.  I didn't see a name on the other post though, sorry.

So it can be done, NICE!!!

Where can I go to learn more about how to set up custom fields?  I'm a newbie at virtuemart and don't do much programming at all. 

ANY help would be great right now.  Point me in the right direction and I'll run from there.

Hi,
 In Virtuemart (Products sub Menu) >Custom Fields, add a new custom field :
Add the title
Select Custom Field Type
Any card Fields using price/options need "Cart atribute" : YES
When your Custom Field is declared, you can see it in the product customfield list.(last tab in product edition).
Select the field in the list for each field to add in the product
