Inquiry Manager and Add to Inquiry Release 0.7 Beta
« on: October 31, 2005, 03:47:33 am »
Hi-

We have hacked mambo-phpshop 1.2 stable-pl3 to the following:

--No Credit Card at Checkout
--All text in site to reflect the wording "Inquiry".
--Ability to add comments about each product in the Inquiry Manager (Cart)
--Ability for Admin to turn price on or off for each user individually. (Future update will include price or no price for each product)
--Various updates to move this product toward being the perfect Quote or Inquiry application.

Note Future upddates include:

--100% AJAX GUI- Will work with Joomla default template
--Manufactuer Log-in Area to allow suppliers to add/edit product prices and see similar products from other suppliers. If a product has been added to the catalog with NO PRICE then an email is automaticaly sent to the Manufactuer to remind them to log-in and update the pricing for their product. (We have more than 350,000 prducts from 3000+ suppliers but we have no prices so as we add new products to the Catalog we want emails to be sent to the suppliers so they can add prices which save us from writing mass amounts of emails and phone calls).

We are looking to make our code additions as a standard for VirtureMArt. We need someone to take our code hacks and make stable for future updates.

We need to strip our sample data but if someone wants a copy please contact me via this forum.

Current version is running:
Joomla 1.0.3 with mambo-phpshop 1.2 stable-pl3 and all mods

NOTE:

We are working on designs to speed up the Database Quiries.

We want to load PHPSHOP/VirtueMart with more than 350,000 products. Speed is a major factor.

We are adding 100% AJAX interface to Joomla/PHPSHOP and at the same time wish to update the way PHPSHOP makes quiries to the DB.

Any ideas at all on how to speed PHPSHOP up in terms of DB calls....please post your ideas, comments, here.

This would be the next great news after the marriage of eCommerce to CMS.

Thanks for the Matt's effort in creating this fork, also thanks the original developer's effort in VirtueMart.

This should be strongest opensource B2B tools in the planet which far wins osCommerce.

So the only thing left is speed!

Just hope this could be build as a feature of the standard VirtueMart, so that we could enjoy all future updates.

By the way, Matt.  Could you kindly upload it to joomla so that we could download it?

Sincere thanks once again  :D

Hi-

Im the project manager but I did not actually make the modifications.

There are some DB edits as well. Minor additions for the auto-save comments, etc. So we need to edit out our code edits and additions.

We are also making a switch to go to go between the Inquery manager and the standaer virtuemart. We will try to make a way to keep track of updates.

Then we will turn this over to VirtueMart team. Hopefully we can work with the VirtueMart team to make this a standard for the next release.

Future modifications like AJAX and Faster DB Query system will need the VirtueMart seal of approval if we want to make this something the entire community can benefit from. We can pay to have any cool addition as long as it makes some business sense.

Regards,
Matt
