Here’s a little project I completed some time back but updated today. The essence of the project is to create a new osCommerce page that acts like the “contact_us” page but allows the person contacting to let the shopowner know precisely what he or she is interested in.
So, I made a copy of contact_us with some extra details (name, email, enquiry, location and then a chained selector system based on manufacturer, product and size). Think in terms of a shoe shop which sells a range of manufacturers and model of shoe.
What is a chained selector?
So, the person first selects the manufacturer, the second dropdown is then populated ONLY with the products from that manufacturer, the third dropdown is a size dropdown. Now the customer can fill out all the info and the shopowner can email them back to let them know where/how to purchase.
All pretty good and works well.
I then came up with the idea of showing the image of the product based on the inputs. So, when a person selects the info, an image of what they have chosen appears. Does that make sense?
Here’s a video in action;
Let me know what you think…
