Adding this would not be a problem. I would not give your money out for a hack though. Reason being: When updates to VM are applied, this could (and would) more then likely overwright the altered files, thus needing the code re-inserted with each update (if the source coding were to chage for some reason, the hack might not even work anymore needing someone to recode it). If VM would add the code addition to their source, this would not be an issue then.
The Hack, Although a good attempt, is not really a decent solution for a product builder. And If I could just get a decent product builder integrated in this "e-commerce solution" then I wouldn't update it as long as it did the job..
** Ok rather than talking philosophy on this like everyone has before , and nothing ever getting done .. ***I HAVE A PROPOSAL**
**** Rather than hope someone develops this, I am no longer going to rely on this to happen, even with the offer of decent money, there still has been no takers. ..
**** Lets bring in some new blood and perspective into this project , By getting a Developers from Elance.com***
Lets Pool Our donations together and place a bid on ELANCE.com for this project. I think that we have a better chance with going with somone who develops code everyday and has a new perspective on virtuhacking.
*** DO NOT OFFER TO DONATE UNLESS YOU ARE SERIOUS, BECAUSE I AM***
I will open up a section of one of my websites that will keep track of who is willing to donate what. Please place what you can donate here, as well as fallow up with a personal message to me with the dollar amount and how I can get in touch with you when it comes to bid time.
This will at least get the BASIC functionality that we need in order to use virtumart until we can ALL move to Joomla+ Magento.
If you have any more suggestions please feel free to post them. In the meantime, May I suggest that Virtumart not claim to be a ecommerce shopping solution until it has the essentials.
All those willing to donate on this project, You must be ok with me posting the finished product up here for free download to anyone else who may want it ... within a few weeks anyway. Those who donated, should get it first.
Thank You guys -- now lets actually get some problems solved, and stop with the philosophy.
