Contribution Talk: QPBPP 1242

Whenever I use a pre-existing contribution, I’ll make a short blog post to let you know how the install went, and how easy the contribution is to install.

Quantity Price Breaks Per Product (aka QPBPP)

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1242

The task was to install this on a very highly modified shop. This shops admin category page has at least 5 other contributions code changes, some custom coded by me, some added by the client. Hence I could not just “drop in” the files.

I had to merge the files one by one, by hand. Using winmerge makes it rather easy, however I decided to simply follow the install instructions as they are put together quite well…

In use, it works flawlessly. I managed to easily add price breaks to the product.

Overall

Ease of Install: 6/10 (good considering the shop is highly modified)
Ease of Use: 8/10
How it looks: 3/10 (it’s ugly in the extreme, I modified a file to change this)

Changes I would like to see

The NEW files added to a folder so that any new files can just be dropped in, without accidentally over-writing existing files.

Extra Info

I have modded the PriceFormatter.php file to output the price breaks in a cleaner fashion. If anyone wants this, please let me know, feel free to “beer” me for quicker service. Burp.

  1. I have been using this mod. It is a very good mod. I expanded it to include an ajax call to update the price on the website if someone updated the quantity. the mod is straight forward to work with.

  2. Chris – that’s so long ago. I’d need to find it. Beer fee would be good. Email me on oscshops at gmail dot ccom
