Change value for absMaxProducts
« on: March 01, 2013, 22:05:02 pm »

in product.php the VMConfig use for some functions a property absMaxProducts:
$maxNumber = VmConfig::get ('absMaxProducts', 700);

Is the default value somewhere stored so that it can be changed?
- I mean to change the absMaxProducts default value ...

I know this is a very old post but it was the first result when I searched for how to configure absMaxProducts so I think it's a good place to report my findings.

As far as I can see, this parameter cannot be set in backend configuration. But since I don't like to hack the code, I did some testing and I was able to manually add this value to the config table.

I.e. in table #__virtuemart_configs edit the field config add this at the end:

Code: [Select]
or whatever value you prefer. This has been tested on VM 3.0.18.

Looks like something that should be in hidden config.

right, zanardi your method deletes the value in the moment you store the config once.
