Product_availability_data not shown for child product
« on: March 10, 2008, 18:58:21 pm »
Hi all,

It seems that the VM1.1 nightly built from yesterday, 9.3.08, does not work properly for showing the product availability data of child list product in the fly page. When I have 2 childs, and select one of them in the dropdown menu from the flypage, the stock and availability is not updated (or better not shown). In the VM RC1, it was working. I tried to select the same parameters  in the product configuration but without any success

I do not know is this a bug or a configuration problem...

I use Joomla 1.0.15

Thanks for your reply.

I'm using 1.1.3 and if I show the child products in list style, there are no availability images displayed. IS this a bug or a "this is the way it works"? The availability icons show fine if the child products are not displayed in the list at the end of the parent product. But the drop down for the child products was always a usability issue for our users.

Hi ptogel

Did anyone have a solution for this? I cannot see any availability information on any products whether listed as a single product or item of a parent. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi
I found a solution to my problem. This code was missing from the fly page.

public_html/components/com_virtumart/themes/default/templates/product_details/*choose the fly page to add this code to*

<td><?php
           if( $this->get_cfg( 'showAvailability' )) {
              echo $product_availability;
           }
           ?><br />
     </td>

This added the availability gif. You can move the position by adding the code at dfferent points in the line.
