Lots of stuff and improvements have been done recently for the modules Cherry Picker and VM Breadz.
It may even be called
 - a new version is released.
 
Let’s take a look on new features.

1.  Now Cherry Picker has a comprehensive support of Multiple Values as Parameter Type. It is very handy in situations when one parameter of a product has multiple qualities.
  For example: your store is selling dresses. And a certain dress is multicolored – has white, red, yellow colors. In old version you would have to choose only one dominating color and assign to Parameter -> Color. But now it is possible to have all colors in parameter Color and this dress will be searchable in any color a visitor has selected. So now it is more versatile for you to decide what products a customer should see under certain criteria.

2.  Display Cherry Picker on a Frontpage or any other non-Virtuemart page, or even in a parent category with ALL filters of certain Product Type.
  So now you can invite a customer to your store even earlier with no need to dig in the depths of categories. What you need – is to create another copy of Cherry Picker,  assign Product Type ID and select where you want this module to be displayed in Joomla Menu Assignment.

3. Choose to display a total number of products selected.

4. Has a Static or Dynamic Pre-text. Dynamic means – a category name will be used in pre-text: “Select products from Televisions”.

5. In VM Breadz you may choose a type of breadcrumbs:
- regular:   Sony > 1080p > 22”
- with names:    Brand: Sony > Resolution: 1080p > Screen size: 22”

6. A couple of pre-installed themes.

7. Other little code improvements.



Note: If you are using <Previous :: Next product> hack, please re-download shop_browse_queries.php.

There is only one change at line 215.

Sorry, sorry for inconvenience. The hosting company is having some problems, but they promise it'll be working soon.

UPDATE: The site is back!

Im using latest version of Cherry Picker. Comprehensive support of Multiple Values as Parameter Type is just awsome work  ;D! However im having trouble setting one specific thing. For example: I have shop with celular phones. I want to setup filter so user can select from Brand (nokia, samsung,..), Properties (mp3, gps, etc) and design. I would make 3 copies of CP modules and each of them define the right Product Type ID.

Problem occurs when i try to filter out for example Nokia with MP3 and GPS support. In short: i can't select multiple parameters if they are in seperate module with different type ID  ???. I know that i could solve this if i put everything in same Product Type ID but i would realy like to seperate one Product Type ID from the other.



So.. I guess question is: Is it possible to keep my configuration of modules as it is and still use it as mentioned above?

Here is an example how i would like to make my filter: http://www.mobitel.si/telefoni-in-naprave/aparati.aspx?mo=0&te=0

If you read product types manual, I wrte there that it is not recommanded to assign more product types to a product or a category of products, just for this reason!

Hi Maksus,
Question about CP: I'm selling clothes. Is it possible voor customers to select for instance colour red AND colour blue so they see both?
Regards Mirco

Hi Mirco,
If you mean to select two parameters from the same parameters group, then no. That's not quite efficient I think, at least. But if you mean that your clothes have two colours (red and blue) then yes, it'll be searchable under any of two.

Hi Dan,
Been busy lately. From latest - There is a slightly modified Horizontal version of ChP, so you can now place it on top or bottom of page. May be pretty handy)

I was only checking in, to make sure you are around to hear some news: VM 1.5 will also have Product Types, I know because I had some words with Roland the man.

So you better check out the VM 1.5 development. Pretty soon we will have the first beta release.
