First impressions:
It gave me a message when i installed new version 2.0.3c

"Warning, the Safe path is empty, for safety reasons it is very important to create a folder in a path not accessible by an URL, create also a folder invoices in it to store your sensible data secure. Our suggested path is for your system D:\Ampps\www\vmfiles"
- If user create that directory he/she needs to create a blank index.html file too, right?
- I'm in a localhost ampps server... but if any user have this in a webhosting he needs to change the value of chmod too?
- Why the com_virtuemart.2.0.3.c.zip doesnt install this folder automatically (by default)?

(it's really necessary to take this action to VM2 work? My fathers invoices will be provided by a different software on their PC. We'll just use in the future the VM2 to receive costumer orders by e-mail... humm..)

and also find this things not solved yet on 2.0.3C : http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=99052.msg329013#msg329013

PS: to test this i've add the folder "vmfiles" and also add the link in Configuration > Template > Safe Path: D:\Ampps\www\vmfiles   ... Then i saw that the VM2 create another folder called: "vmfilesinvoices" here D:\Ampps\www\vmfilesinvoices ... strange!? two folders to the same thing?!

Best regards

Hi ,
Joomla 2.5.2
Just for me - 2.0.3 c

My small cart shows the right final price .

My main shopping cart now has errors - The product is shown and is correct but now I have no - shipping cost showing, no payments,  nor a final price.( right at the bottom)

However the - invoice sent to the customer has the correct price and shipping showing.

* Just as a test I went into configuration and turned on all 'show Following prices' just to check - I still have no shipping, payments nor total in cart.

It did round a product of  $199.95 to $200.00 which is correct in Australia.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I turned on bug for administrators to find the issue ( the message appeared Fatal error) - I could not get into the back end of my site - at all .

the only way was to reinstall my whole site and data base - (very scary) - lucky I did the right thing before testing "2.0.3 c -  I then purchased the same item I did before and every thing worked well - I am back using version "b" - sorry - but I can say the rounding appeared Ok.

Just a passing thought ?

Now  some of us on the new version are getting this message:

Warning, the Safe path is empty, for safety reasons it is very important to create a folder in a path not accessible by an URL, create also a folder invoices in it to store your sensible data secure. Our suggested path is for your system .....

THis needs a clearer explaination of what to do? I have created for joomla other CMs systems ( folders) outside of the public folder for a variety of reasons - But what does this mean?

Use the childs http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=98648.0 !

This means there are no more stockable customfields like we need for example with shirts "XL", "L", "M" ?
In version 2.0.1 they say that this was possible with a customfield of type "plugin", and then select "VM-Custom, stockable variants". With this way we get the dropdown we need but there are still bugs.
They don't get fixed i think ?
So new features get a higher priority. There was a new feature with the "Notify me" button, don't work, but still isn't fixed. This is how it goes?

That is fine, it works. but how do you remove the parent product from the dropdown list? and why is there a radio button before the dropdown list? that is the biggest problem I have!
Title: Re: New pre subrelease VirtueMart 2.0.3. UPDATE E
Post by: John2400 on March 17, 2012, 06:46:30 am
2.0.3 e version Update has corrected the main cart price issue.
The vendor email now has at the top - "COM_VIRTUEMART_CART_MAIL_VENDOR_CONTENT"  exactly as written ? It this supposed to be there?

Thanks.

* I see that Corymp speaks of two issues -  one the Radio button -- I continue to struggle with the parent/ child products

* to get rid of the parent-- The idea is that if you create the parent and then say two child products . You then  have three products real ones.  The idea then is to go to the parent and unpublish your parent. Then you have to go to your child and put them in a category.  Parent disappears and the child appears.

I agree - I then see the child and it has a few options in it - the child appears for me with a radio button and the choices underneath it -  I would like to see the child and next to it is a simple drop down box - with my choices underneath - the radio button looks ?? wrong. Are we creating this incorrectly?

TBoele - I see you are still struggling with this - Me too-

* The solution now might be a youtube video tutorial, powerpoint step by step. - I'll have another go tonight to make varients with control stock- I actually use the T shirt option to practice.

Post by: TBoele on March 17, 2012, 08:23:26 am
Yes still struggling with it, but i'm not the only one if you look at the forum. Nobody knows how to setup the stockable customfields and there is no clear manual. So that's why people ask questions and complain about the customfields. Does the VM Team don't understand this ?

Everytime you ask a question about the customfields they direct you to http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=98648.0
That isn't any help.

Are product like tshirts (colors and sizes) special products? I don't think so. The color and size stockable custumfield is very basic for a good webshop.
And with version VM 2.0.3E this is still not possible!

@Milbo : Did you try it yourself to create a product like a tshirt with different colors and sizes like the way you suggest ?

@John2400 : did you already put a tutorial on youtube ?

The idea is that you use Child products. However, even the Generic child variant is used, I can't create similar dropdown list than with cart variant showing the price of child. See pics.

Hi maxispin,

I presume that you use the name 'Shirts green cost $20.00' and the drop down box is set like you have shown in the images.

We often used the name of the varient and included the cost in typed text.

I think we should move these discussions to the forum area I actually put something here:                 http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=90833.new#new

Hi,

first of all, the changes look very good, especially the direct input of the final price.
Makes it a lot easier for small shops like ours, where only the boss has the cost price anyway ;)

I'm still testing, but there is one big issue already:
The discounting option is just completely gone.
(http://www.abload.de/thumb/pricing_errorr2uxl.jpg) (http://www.abload.de/img/pricing_errorr2uxl.jpg)

One small issue is, that the joomla-tabs are all doubled.
(http://www.abload.de/thumb/tabs_error98ug5.jpg) (http://www.abload.de/img/tabs_error98ug5.jpg)

I'm looking into it a little further now, maybe there went something wrong with copying the whole site and database from one part of the server to another,
but for now it is not looking like that.

in version 2.0.3. E the manually typed in "reduced price" is not working any more. In backend the "reduced price" field is not shown, only the label for it. When using the new calc-function, the "reduced price" is even killed in database.

A small update:
The doubled tabs seem to be a "local" problem, my collegue doesn't have them on his laptop (both using firefox).

What i don't get is why we now have to choose between discounts and input of final prices... :/

Proposal

Please reference this page -> http://test2.firenl.com/store/eliquid/tobacco-flavors/flue-cured-tobacco-detail

To set up generic child variants as displayed in the above link, I followed these steps:

1. Create a parent product called Shirt and give it a category.
2. Create children products of shirt (small, medium, large) Do not give these children a category.
3. Create your custom field, type = generic child variant. Title = Size. Cart Attribute= Yes.
4. Add this custom field to your parent product.

When you view the product, all children will show in one dropdown. when you select an item in the dropdown, it will send you to the product details page of the child product selected.

The major issue still present is that the dropdown box is wrapped in a radio button element. which don't make sense.

These are the things that are missing right now:

    1. I would like an option for children to inherit the product name from the parent
    2. I would like an option to hide the parent product's price.
    3. Show child product price visible in the dropdown
    4. Remove the radio button from the dropdown
    5. Remove the parent product from the dropdown
    6. Create an option to hide add to cart button from parents, you should not be able to purchase a parent

As workaround to remove the radio button, you can set this as the last line in your template's stylesheet:

   .product-field-display input { display: none; }

As a reference to how we arrived to these proposals, please see this thread -> http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=90833.0 (http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=90833.0)

Shopping cart issue with version"E"  new issue

When I add a product to the cart it appears ok the small cart recognises the cost but If I purchase several items the large cart only recognises one  product and also I cannot change the quantity by updating in the large cart.

But the final price is correct.

shipment and payment OK - but I'm not using a calculated shipping by weight - so that might need checking too.

It is not longer needed! It was before just a method to overwrite the price fast, for small shops not using VAT and so. But now you can just use the check and let the systme calculate for you the costprice.

I had that set all along. but this is not exactly a custom field. It isn't displayed like a custom field.  this is displayed like   if (!empty($this->product->customfieldsCart)) does the positions work for this? Anyway I take that back about this being the biggest problem. I would like to see the other issues I stated dealt with first. Your solution do not work to remove that radio button. unless I could do say    <?php if (!empty($this->product->customfieldsCartSorted['ontop'])) ?><?php foreach ($this->product->customfieldsCartSorted['ontop'] as $field) {  ?>

I have tried this but there is still the radio button. So far I can only remove it with styling the element to display:none

Please respond on the other items in my post. and refer to my website and notice the page titles when a custom child is selected. The title should be the same as the parent title.
Title: Re: New pre subrelease VirtueMart 2.0.3. UPDATE E
Post by: Milbo on March 18, 2012, 20:41:54 pm
If the title should be the same is a matter of taste and seo philosophy.

Second you should learn and understand the trick of positioning customs. You can set the customfields everywhere in the productdetails area. I think you use template overrides. When you install a fresh vm with sampledata you have it out of the box.

Milbo what good is a product page with the title "Red"? Are you buying Red? or are you buying a T-shirt in red? a matter of taste? That is why I requested an "option". It should be up to me if I am worried about seo philosophy. Besides. In order to make it work now, I have to add custom aliases to all my child products anyway because I have several products with the same attributes. I don't want to have the name of the product along side every option in the dropdown. That don't even make sense. 

second, I do indeed understand the trick of positioning customs. Are you referring to this thread? -> http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=99225.0 (http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=99225.0). I am using it to position Specs in the tabbed area of my product details page. But as I said again, this "trick" doesn't explain how to do it for customfieldCart just for customfields. are they the same thing? We don't know because there's no documentation on it.

If you know how, it would be nice if you were to explain a little better how this works. You only have to explain in detail once. Full steps, and explain what the outcome is supposed to look like.

Corymp, my titles are shovel red and not just red. I also think that you use template overrides. Please try first virtuemart without template overrides. Please, there are so many errors atm just caused by wrong template overrides.
Title: Re: New pre subrelease VirtueMart 2.0.3. UPDATE E
Post by: corymp on March 19, 2012, 19:16:22 pm
I understand, I am rewriting my template overrides. But we are still limited to Shovel Red, Shovel Green, Shovel Blue.. etc. in the dropdown which looks odd and takes up space. Plus ATM, The parent has an Add to cart button and price. Which is wrong if you are in fact going to buy the children. I have found some workarounds, but it makes much more work handling products in the back end
Title: Re: New pre subrelease VirtueMart 2.0.3. UPDATE E
Post by: Milbo on March 19, 2012, 20:32:33 pm
You can use the parent itself, or you can unpublish the parent and give one child a category so that you can browse it. I know,.. manuals will come.

What I've done though is named my products like this:
Parent: 24mg
Child: 16mg
Child: 11mg
Child: 0mg

I've added a string custom field position "product" and added the position to to my template override to replace the product titles. I would then add my custom title to that in the back end for each product. It works flawlessly.

This outputs the drop down the way I like and all titles show the product and not the product option. The current option is shown in the drop down.

I next need to find a way to pull that same custom title from the product and display it on the category page.

This is the way it should be set up by default IMO.

If you could entertain my solution by looking at my output. You can see it here -> http://test2.firenl.com/store/tobacco-flavors/flue-cured-24-detail (http://test2.firenl.com/store/tobacco-flavors/flue-cured-24-detail)

Post by: corymp on March 19, 2012, 23:09:20 pm
Another thing I noticed, not sure if it's a bug or not. I understand that When you add a title to a product and save, it sets the alias automatically. This is troublesome in my case because it will not only set the alias on save, but if the product has children, it will reset the alias of all children at the same time. For someone who creates custom aliases this is a huge bother. Is there a way in next release to   set alias if empty? instead of always setting alias?

Right now if I make a change to the parent of my child variants, all the aliases will be reset rendering any links or ads from other places useless

If I could append the the parent title to the front of the slug in the code below instead of appending the current date to the end, we could save our parent and the aliases for the children would be for example in my case, flue-cured-tobacco-16mg instead of something like this 16mg2012-03-19-23-29-15_

vmtable.php line 417
Code: [Select]
if(!empty($existingSlugName)){
if($i==0){
if(JVM_VERSION===1) $this->$slugName = $this->$slugName . JFactory::getDate()->toFormat("%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S").'_';
else $this->$slugName = $this->$slugName . JFactory::getDate()->format('Y-m-d-H-i-s').'_';
} else{
$this->$slugName = $this->$slugName.rand(1,9);
}

The slug must be unique and not empty. Atm we use the falllback to add a date, we may think about to use the variant. It was meant that you define yourself your slug.
Title: Re: New pre subrelease VirtueMart 2.0.3. UPDATE E
Post by: corymp on March 20, 2012, 13:06:25 pm
That's the problem, I defined all my children with my own slugs and its fine until you edit the parent. when you do, it reverts the child slugs back to 'childproductname . date'

It is not recognizing that I set my own slug

Hi
I did a clean install of Joomla 1.5.25, then installed 2.0.3E, then 2.0.3E AIO. The AIO won't install:
Code: [Select]
Fatal error: Class 'plgSearchVirtuemart' not found in X/administrator/components/com_virtuemart_allinone/script.vmallinone.php on line 307
Also, the Virtuemart component places itself second in the components menu - between Banners and Contacts. I believe that its sort order is based on COM_VIRTUEMART instead of Virtuemart.

Thanks

Milbo already wrote an answer about that:
It is not longer needed! It was before just a method to overwrite the price fast, for small shops not using VAT and so. But now you can just use the check and let the systme calculate for you the costprice.

In my opinion, this is again good for big comanies with a lot of equal products, but makes it a lot more difficould for the little "manually operated" shops.
They just finished adding all discounts manually with the "old" method and now they are just ingored in the new system and we need to redo all discounts to fit the "new" system.
We'll do it, but it didn't make my colleagues very happy ;)

We did try the system with the "Tax and Calculation Rules" before, but it seems that all discounts are added as standard to all products per default. So i needed to change all "Apply generic rules" to "apply no rules" regarding the discounts. Is there an option to change the default/generic discount rules to not use any discounts?

It is not longer needed! It was before just a method to overwrite the price fast, for small shops not using VAT and so. But now you can just use the check and let the systme calculate for you the costprice.

I am a bit lost. If the discount field/function is removed, how the shopkeeper is able to show customers a discounted price and how much the customer will "save"?

I think that rules are not the right way to do that on a small scale because they are using fixed values/percentages, and as discussed before there need to be some psychological attractiveness value (PAV) if it's consumer business in a local market. Of course, you could have a fixed discount (a rule) for all products but that is not a normal case. Usually each product have their own discounted price (because of PAV). (Naturally you could have sales for all products running all the time, but that is called cheating)

E.g.
Normal price 100e      [set by shopkeeper in Day 1]    [Shown to shopper in Day 1]  [Shown to shopper in Day 2]
Discount price 59e !   [set by shopkeeper in Day 2]                                               [Shown to shopper in Day 2]

You save 41e!           [calculated by VM    in Day 2]                                               [Shown to shopper in Day 2]

I have so, tried E-version and switch back again to D.
I have to explain a bit more detailed: for us (and for many many others in Germany I believe), the sales prices of most articles can be calculated by rules (base price + x), but there are some manufacturers, who don´t accept this and force us to use "their" sales price! So only in these cases, we do need to overide the calculated price with manual price.

I am in the same boat as these users. Some business doesn't have generic calculation rules that can be applied to many products. Instead of that, the business uses the discount field to give it a desired discounted price. This price is determined based on PAV. Bottom line, the user needs to have the ability to manually overwrite the base price. This is very critical!

Please keep us posted regarding the design around this feature. Thanks.

2.0.3 'G"    2.5.3 Joomla ( updated version)

The large - cart shows the right total but if I change the number of products in the cart -- it gives the wrong total price in the far right column for each individual product.

The total is correct at the bottom of the cart.

Also -  I have lost the ability in Ask a question in products _ (if you fill in a ask a question) the vendor receives an email but the buyer no longer gets a copy.
* added to this is that the vendor - gets the message - the email is from the vendor - so you cannot click reply - http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=100125.0
Just so you know _ I have a contact page through joomla - I sent an email to myself through that link using the same email addresses and then 'send me a copy too'.  I received both buyer and vendor copies. So my server was doing the right thing.

* In the shop configuration _ i was able to set the product to 1 item - I bought it so there were no items available -  click across all the items of "when the product was out of stock" - each has their own issue except show no product. - notify did not notify anyone including the vendor. It did not work.

I agree on the other users about calculation system

The calculation system must be very open. so we have as many options as possible.

I also need a feature where I can make discount from manufactor.
so all products related to a certin manufactor gets discount.
by this feature it is possible to make a very fast disount.

eg: manufactor sony 10%        (all products related to this manufactor gets 10% off)
         -------       samsung 20%  (all products related to this manufactor gets 10% off)

because if i do it like now i only do all products or categories (vm 2.02) or i have to go in on each products and select calculation rule which take a very long time.

Hmm I am sorry, I dont get the problem, especially for germans.

It is quite easy to enter the retailer price. The costprice is then not your actual costprice, it is then the price you must stay below. Hmmm.

Manufacturer depended will be added, quite soon. I am also missing it. Just a pattern thing.

You can also just say, do not use any calculation rules, or you can set a fixed rule. You can also just use unpublished categories to create an hidden price structure.

Updated version H --

* The ask a question is almost right except  - the steps.
* If I fill in and 'ask a question' >> it goes to the vendor with my question. The vendor sees my email address in the message but if he/she clicks reply. It comes up with a reply email of the sender but when I clcik sent it sends it to the vendor instead.?

So simply - the buyer will not get an email if the vendor simply hits reply - even though it looks like the buyers email is in the address bar.

The vendor must clcik on the address in the email only to resend a message.

Also - the buyer should have the option " send me the message too" on the ask me a question pop up box.

_______________________________________________________________________

If I purchase a product and confirm I get a good email -  both buyer and vendor

If I add a comment the vendor then receives a message "COM_VIRTUEMART_CART_MAIL_VENDOR_SHOPPER_QUESTION"  at the top of his invoice - there is no message contained in the email. The buyer gets his/her own message .

I still see the line in the receipt or invoice email that has the price set in the wrong line - the actual price number needs to be one line above?

I think there is an easy way to do this in Joomla 2.5.x. Go to the Joomla Plugins and enable "Plug-in Manager: User - Profile".

I still have those errors with the unique indexed slugs with my own import script and csvi too. It is still not possible  to create subcategories with same name for different main categories. Same thing happens with products too. In my case I did try to import about 400 categories and around 20 000 products. The import works fine but because of the slug unique index, about 30 categories are missing and about 2000 products. If I set the slug in the language files to just index (not unique) everything works until I use SEF URL. VM 2 obviously tries to recreate slugs, it starts messing up the database by deleting all those categories and products, which have no unique names. It does that by deleting just inside the language tables. Result: I have all categories and products in all the product and categories tables except the language tables. So VM fronted does not work any more. My first thought was, that my own script works wrong. So I did export and import with CSVI. Results are the same.
I think the whole router function is problematic. It relies on the slugs, instead of the only unique thing, the categories or product id.
In my case if I want to use Joomla 2.5 I have to migrate to another shopping cart solution. VM 2 is not the right thing for bigger shops with some automation scripts.

Shipping weight plugin does not show shipping when maximum weight is not specified within the backend config. (VM 2.0.3H all joomla versions).  I believe it should ignore the weight when the maximum is not specified.

Does anybody have a known solution how to cure 500 HTTP error (Internal Server Error) when I checkout from cart? I use VM-Payment,Standard plugin and I tried almost everything to solve it by settings but without success (change vars in fields). I didn't try to change DB prefix to jos_ but I read it doesn't matter because it's fixed. Hungarian language is in use in VM and it's running on Joomla 2.5.3 with three languages: HU, EN, DE (PHP5.3.10 and MySQL5.5.10).

Disable SEO and see to what address you go, and if is something like this "index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=cart" .

Hi. I'm using the same J2.5.3 and vm 2.0.3H and the Cart its working fine (for me) in my layout.
Try to see your CSS with Firebug whats happen with your template/layout...
for example your "Totaal" is align on Left side and in my template it's at right side like you could see: <td colspan="4" align="right">Total: </td>

@Milbo

the Price div is now created in /administrator/components/com_virtuemart/helpers/currencydisplay.php

with this line of text:

return '<div class="Price'.$name.'" style="display : '.$vis.';" >'.$descr.'<span class="Price'.$name.'" >'.$priceFormatted.'</span></div>';

Can this be moved to the views folder to the file "default_showprices.php" ??

Because when you now try to change the layout of the price you always have to edit the "currencydisplay.php" and loose your changes with every update.....

No Otto,
every price has its own id and name, so you can use css to style it. The Position is done in the template.

The stockable variants are still completely fubared.

Setup 1:
One parent product, price 4.99.
3 child products, X => +0, Y => +0, Z => +1

Result 1:
On the category page, the price is shown as 4.99, the base price, as expected. Click on the product, and the product flypage gives the price as 5.99, ie. the "Z" price, even though the dropdown defaults to "X".
Changing the dropdown automatically changes the displayed price back to 4.99 for EVERY variant. Even when changing the variant to "Z", the price goes grey and gets "changed" to 4.99 (ie. stays the same).
When adding any of these variants to the cart, the price in the cart is always 4.99, regardless of which variant is chosen.

Setup 2:
One parent product, price 4.99.
3 child products, X => +0.5, Y => +0.5, Z => +1

Result 2:
Similar to above except price always stays as 5.49. Basically, the prices always stays at the LOWEST variant price.
When added to cart however, the price for all variants was 5.99 (ie. the price of the highest priced variant).
One other thing that I noticed is the in the cart, the SKU displayed was the SKU for "X" for all variants, even though the description shown was correct for each variant.

This is not only incorrect behaviour, but completely unusable behaviour. Let's try to get this fixed for 2.0.3. This is basic behaviour, the more advanced custom field problems could wait until 2.0.4.

OpenGlobal

PS. There is also a javascript error given in the console when the page loads, it may be related but I haven't investigated:

"$.setproducttype is not a function"

J2.5.3
VM 2.0.3.E

I have defined two payment methods: 1) Standard Payment (Bank Transfer) 2) PayPal and two different shipping methods.

When the user is still anonymous, then in the shopping cart:

Shipping:   
no selected shipping method is shown yet --> WHICH IS CORRECT

Payment:   
PayPal is already pre-selected ---> WHICH IS WRONG! The payment alternative can then be selected at the checkout.
But at this stage, nothing should be shown, as it also gives the user the impression that there is only Paypal available.

Is this a bug?
Title: Re: New pre subrelease VirtueMart 2.0.3. UPDATE I
Post by: lipes on April 03, 2012, 17:42:06 pm
#A)  the Final price is also strange :S
i write "5" or "5.0" and always get this value: "4.999999" not the 5 € .. if someone want to pay 4.99 will pay 5 ? its the same value :S

This is too bad.. now to get Product Final price we cant insert only the field "Value" € and hit "Save & Close"... this option doesnt work!

#B) To Calculate the costprice and get the final price now we need to hit the 'check box' .... and then we could Save & Close.....
Why not detect if user click to change the value (edit/update) on the form field of Product Final price and automatic hit that check box ... for users Save the result without losing their time again and see that the price wasnt updated? in Vm1 this worked :/
seems this is like the file/image upload process too..
if we need to upload any file/image and Dont hit the upload button (2nd step no automatic.. of course we want to upload or not we were going to call the file on our disk) .. the file doesnt upload .. and we need to go back again and do all the job twice..   x|

it's not possible to push and apply the code (javascript or something else) from VM1 and apply that in this areas of VM2 that we need to have a more userfriendly system?! please :/

#C) in Product Details the Option product-short-description doesnt Work  (+/- solved .. not in vm default template configuration)... 

You could test it by put some text like... "Hello World ... Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. etc.. etc... etc................."

there is no limit on short description words ... short could become larger description too in this default way (\components\com_virtuemart\views\productdetails\tmpl\default.php):
 
Code: [Select]
       <div class="product-short-description">
    <?php
    
/** @todo Test if content plugins modify the product description */
    echo nl2br($this->product->product_s_desc);
    ?>

        </div>

UPDATE Solution: gived by BanquetTables.pro
Code: [Select]
<?php echo shopFunctionsF::limitStringByWord($this->product->product_s_desc40'...'?>
<?php ?>
    Tks Banquet!!! :)

#D)
Its (or it will be) possible to call the Manufacturer Logo ( manufacturerImage of that produtc) in Product Details?

<img src="/images/stories/virtuemart/manufacturer/resized/<?php echo ps_product::get_mf_full_image( $product_id );?>"> ? like in vm1 ?


#E)
There is no (re) Captcha integration in form of the "Ask a question link" ...

tks

*The larger shopping cart calculations - will not update the number of items nor the cost correctly - purchase a few items and test changing the amounts. ( chrome, explorer, firefox)
*If I purchase a product and confirm I get a good email -  both buyer and vendor
If I add a comment the vendor then receives a message "COM_VIRTUEMART_CART_MAIL_VENDOR_SHOPPER_QUESTION"  at the top of his invoice - there is no message contained in the email. The buyer gets his/her own message .
*I still see the line in the receipt or invoice email that has the price set in the wrong line - the actual price number needs to be one line above?
Orders and invoices _ (back end ) fixed -looks good to me.

Total:   1,87 € (tax)   10,00 € (Total)

So this option dont work for me with the minimum purchase value. This is for final Price ?!?? I only work with final price :/

#B) To Calculate the costprice and get the final price now we need to hit the 'check box' .... and then we could Save & Close.....
I do not understand your problems here. There is no upload button for the media. You can directly enter your costprice, or calculate it with the check, or use the override with another check. So what is the problem with it? The Js sounds interesting on the first view, but I think it will also lead to confusion

#D)
Its (or it will be) possible to call the Manufacturer Logo ( manufacturerImage of that produtc) in Product Details?

You can do that already, the command is always the same, regardless the object is a vendor, manufacturer, category, or product.

#F) I've configure The minimum purchase value to 10,00 €.
In my cart I add 2 test products with the value of 5,00 €
Total:   1,87 € (tax)   10,00 € (Total)

So this option dont work for me with the minimum purchase value. This is for final Price ?!?? I only work with final price :/
The option is for the whole cart, not for a single product. Or better said, per vendor.


#G) I've done one update in my contact test account.. I hit the save button and i get this msgs:

imho this happens only to vendors using the FE. Is not really normal, but should not interfere. It is meant for multivendor later.

OK Alatak - so that was caused due to my previous testing, now I understand. That means, the "fresh" user will not have something preselected, unless he already made a purchase before... Good to know - thx for letting me know. :)

Milbo: Hi, good afternoon.
A: Humm.. ok ok .. its like a 'pi' problem 3.14............... "it never ends".. ok lol! :)

B: I was just giving a suggestion.
(http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/5569/javascpt.png)
Indicated that it seemed identical to the "file/image upload process" like i'd write.
The suggestion was when users click on that 'green area' (image above).. that some script will do automatic the confirmation without people lose their work or  pressing that buttons/radiobut/checkbox to confirm (again) what we already want to do/add/update (like in VM1).

D: i was again giving a suggestion for the manufacturer logo be by default in template :P
 I'm trying to find that solution, but it's complicated..

UPDATE: SOLUTION to ADD MANUFACTURER LOGO in Products template:
http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=95818.msg333197#msg333197

E: Will we have Catpcha in "Ask a question" link? cant find your answer to this question :/

F: But in my whole cart i only have this 2 products (5€ + 5€)..
when i click "Do the checkout Now" button and then appears one system message saying:
"The minimum purchase value is 10,00 €."
But this is strange because in Total is already 10€!!! lol o_O it's a crazy thing!!

G: ok! :)

H) (new) -> Every time that I add a new Manufacturer Logo (upload an image) in the 'Description' Tab -> Manufacturer category Name field.. the VM add (without my permission) one Manufacturer category name .. The worst of all is that we cant Delete that or Add multiple categories names to that manufacturer brand ...

I) (new) -> I dont understand whats happening with the 'Shopper Fields' i cannot change the order, the pagination doesnt work, the arrows dont worl, if i click on 'reorder' the new order doesnt save because it apears one popup saying: "You cannor change the order of items, as an item in the list is Check Out" .. i uncheck all box's but when hit 'save' again VM automatic check same box again with the same popup msg ... argh  ???

The stockable variants are still completely fubared.

Setup 1:
One parent product, price 4.99.
3 child products, X => +0, Y => +0, Z => +1

Result 1:
On the category page, the price is shown as 4.99, the base price, as expected. Click on the product, and the product flypage gives the price as 5.99, ie. the "Z" price, even though the dropdown defaults to "X".
Changing the dropdown automatically changes the displayed price back to 4.99 for EVERY variant. Even when changing the variant to "Z", the price goes grey and gets "changed" to 4.99 (ie. stays the same).
When adding any of these variants to the cart, the price in the cart is always 4.99, regardless of which variant is chosen.

Setup 2:
One parent product, price 4.99.
3 child products, X => +0.5, Y => +0.5, Z => +1

Result 2:
Similar to above except price always stays as 5.49. Basically, the prices always stays at the LOWEST variant price.
When added to cart however, the price for all variants was 5.99 (ie. the price of the highest priced variant).
One other thing that I noticed is the in the cart, the SKU displayed was the SKU for "X" for all variants, even though the description shown was correct for each variant.

This is not only incorrect behaviour, but completely unusable behaviour. Let's try to get this fixed for 2.0.3. This is basic behaviour, the more advanced custom field problems could wait until 2.0.4.

PS. There is also a javascript error given in the console when the page loads, it may be related but I haven't investigated:

OMFG! I hadn't realised that you were seriously being as complacent about this version as everybody already thinks.

When I would be complacent, I wouldnt answer you. There wouldnt be any forum pre versions and so on. What the hell you guys are talking about. The first thing you should learn before blaming other people is to look in the mirror. Learn what an opensource project is and how it works. We do not have the duty to write code for some people who think they need it. An opensoure project works so that people write what they need for their own purpose (own shop, client,...) and contribute it. Before you answer read this http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/fs-motives.html and http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/selling.html .

And yes we do atm not work on the "stockable price varants plugins". That does NOT mean that we do NOT work on the "stockable variants". Guys, you must be able to read precise and yes this statement is from the leader of the virtuemart team. This is a quite free world. The main rule for an opensource project ist: "Dont blame the other, do it better, do it yourself". What means this? When I say we do not work on it, what means that? That it is not allowed to work on it?

So who of you guys has ever contributed to virtuemart? Who paid us? Who of you contributed code? So why do you think you can propose anything? What gives you the right?

I tell you something maybe new for you: "As long you do not invest your engergy for the virtuemart project, you have NO right to propose anything!" I hope that is clear guys. Anything else is just barefaced. In earlier days the people were happy to get something free and to get something free they can use to earn their living with it. But why does a free software implement that you think you can demand something. I never understood that.

Makes you wonder what this "hero member" IS working on????

Yeh, quite easy, we do what the people pay for, because we must live from something, we have family, we want to eat. When no one is paying for fixing the problem of the stockable variant plugin, but paying for other fixes, why we should write somethign no one is paying for? It seems to be not worthy enough. It costs maybe 200 euro on the open market to repair it.

Like we thought already. They just ignore the whole stockable parent/child problem.

And this it typical again for people who demand, demand, demand. They are even not able to look for what they demand. IT IS ALREADY THERE ! You just ignore the provided solution, is that my problem, that you are not able to browse and understand the sample data? The main reason we do not work on the stockable variant plugins is that it is the wrong way todo it. So guys, before blaming around, stop being arrogant, learn first about what you want to complain. It is really ridicolous. People who never did something for the community demand from the community to fix something, which the community does not need anylonger. Could you even be more barefaced, I really wonder.

Milbo, please stop with the attitude. It's not helping VM and it's not helping the community.

We get it. We understand it's open source, we understand it's GNU. That's why we're trying to help. Yes, some people have shown a bad attitude, but as the leader, you need to be bigger than that. Don't sink to their level.

Some of us are finding the exact locations of bugs in the code and are publishing the code changes required on this forum in the hope that it will make it into the official code.

But VM2 is showing signs of being disorganised. There are so many duplicate threads on this forum that it's becoming almost impossible to keep track of what's happeing to bugs that we've found.

Please can we have an official list of known bugs and their status, and maybe a prediction of when they will be fixed. Or even better, can we have a bug tracker. We need somewhere that we can just link duplicate forum threads to to say "Yes, it's a known bug. End of discussion."

A bug tracker doesn't need public write-access, but public read-access would be hugely beneficial.

I think a lot of the community are getting annoyed because we can see so much potential with VM2, but it's so much hard work to get involved in the community. It's so much hard work to find out what is happening. Information is all over the place in lot's of different forum threads.

A troll fight in the forum is not the way to make VM2 the best e-commerce software. Let's get some structure back.

LoL Openglobal. Sorry, but what you say is naiv. We have 10k visitors a day. People open new threads even there are already 3 threads about the same topic on the first page. How do you want prevent this? Delete the posts? Then the people go, when you organize it, it a lot time costs time. Same for the tracker. It costs also a lot time, I dont have the time for it. We use the forum as tracker and the swarm is itself pushing the important stuff to the surface. A tracker would be directed from above, no community thing, you would like that more? It is less democratic.
 It is not hard to contribute. Just do it. Post your stuff in the forum, it wont get ignored. You are already known for writing a looot. The only result atm is that you found one bug in cancel payment. Thanks for this. But you cost more time, when we answering your great insights, then you give us.

The system is quite easy, when we feel you are a plus for the community, you get invited. But atm it is negative bilance. When you think it is hard to join the community, then you underestimate by far the whole size of this. You underestimate how much effort people put into. Also interesting is that people in the team almost never demand something which they would not do themself.

I think you've missed my point. This is going to happen with every Open Source product. you cannot prevent it, just manage it. At the moment, we are having to follow those "3 threads" to keep up to date on a bug. It would be much better if we could just point to a bug tracker entry to follow. We don't need to be able to write to the bug tracker, but if we could read what's happening, that would be a huge help. Instead of trying to keep 3 forum threads in sync.

We use the forum as tracker and the swarm is itself pushing the important stuff to the surface.

That's good from a developer point of view, but I don't think the community gets it.

It is not hard to contribute. Just do it. Post your stuff in the forum, it wont get ignored.

One of the things that is causing a lot of the bad attitude on the forums is that so much is getting ignored. Or, at least appearing to be ignored because we can't see an official bug tracker.

But you cost more time, when we answering your great insights, then you give us.

If we could see an official bug tracker, we wouldn't need to waste your time because we could see the official status of bugs.

For example, the "cancel payment" bug. I received no feedback when I reported the bug, could not see any way of working out whether it was being worked on, or whether the developers had even acknowledged that it was a true bug. I got bored of waiting so spent several hours trawling through code I was not familiar with and identified two possible fixes. Only when I published my findings did I find out that it had already been fixed in the next development release.

The community doesn't like having it's time wasted either.

I'm worried that the community is becoming very much "them vs us".

When you think it is hard to join the community, then you underestimate by far the whole size of this. You underestimate how much effort people put into.

I completely disagree. I can see that a phenomenal amount of effort has been put in. I just think it should be better organised.

I'm NOT saying that I think I could do a better job. I'm saying that I really want this to work and I'm worried that the negative publicity might destroy the project.

I have an idea.

If we can't have a bug tracker or an "official bugs" page, maybe we could have a new forum for official bugs.

In this new forum, no new threads can be created, but people can update existing threads. When a thread in another forum has been identified as a true bug, an administrator can move it to the official bugs forum. This thread with then be the definitive thread for that bug. Anybody who raises an identical bug again can just be redirected to the official thread in the new forum....

This way, the swarm can feed into a controlled forum.

That is an interesting idea openglobl, similar to the 3rd party forum. But for now I think we should get used first to the second forum for the dev version. And we want to use the bugtracker, but not for all problems.

Just when we developing,.. we often create smaller bugs, which are fixed almost with just knowing them. For this a tracker is overkill. On the other side we have sometimes bigger bugs, we cant solve within some minutes. We will see.

Hehe, I forgive you :-)

This is just a symptom of the underlying problem though. The public doesn't need to be able raise bugs in the bug tracker, but if there is one single definitive place where we can read the information (eg. a read-only bug tracker), mistakes and duplications will be much less likely.

I agree and understand  both. We have to contribute, collaborate whenever possible and be able to wait when we cant do that progress like we want/need/hope... No one is a system machine! eheh :)

So I want give to all Develop Members that keep this forum/site some suggestions (to apply or not) by fixing the tiny top #navPyra like in the image
(http://img638.imageshack.us/img638/3128/suggestions.jpg)

what do you think about this?
In my opinion the fast search is crucial to have less "spam posts" (like i did sometimes.. sorry!!!) and in a fixed position will be wonderfull to users! Like the others items to draw the attention of all for Donations to Developers of this Great and Fantastic Project, and to Commercial Jobs...
I also put one link to issues... but like Milbo explained us there is no many full members that can control all list's.. So you could link to a fixed post in this forum .. but why not recruit any other member that can help with this?
this it's only some suggestions!!!
