  1. I had set that up already with the categories. Was hoping to have a tool to capture the speed surfers who, if cannot locate what they are looking for within the first few seconds of being on your site, simply move on to the next. When I had logs to view the browsing traffic on another site I noticed some shoppers that would type in a product name, search result not found, and they left. And we had the product they wanted had they used the categories to drill down it just did not show up on a search since the syntax of their query did not match the product name exactly. I was debating removing the search but this would be such a helpful tool for our customers. I would even settle for having the search return values from the meta keywords under a product so I can specify all variants of a product name but man that would be tedious work.
  2. Preferrably, I would like the basic search to hit on it since some novice web users will not fiddle with advance searching: they simply want to type in their model that needs a part and if it comes up empty handed they move on. If the search would query the meta data under the category field by default then I could have more freedom to specify variants of a product name based on user logs to ensure our customers can find what they are looking for.
  3. Hello all, I think I found a temporary workaround to an original issue where I have inventory items tied to non-inventory items for reference purpose. The temporary workaround for my predicament is to create all the inventory items (for now creating inventory items as sets in some cases), then add them under their respective categories (categories are non-inventory items names) so that shoppers can know that item is for their model of non inventory item. Unfortunately my temporary workaround cannot use the search function since the category name does not show up under the search results. Any way for me to include the category name (or have the search feature query category meta data) so that those shows up under my search results? I have the box unchecked in the back end to hide empty categories and this still does nothing. I'm still hoping the next revision of the cart can allow us to configure non-inventory items under our actual inventory products with a quantity field for that inventory item used in said non-inventory device, and perhaps a way for the cart to also reference that non inventory item throughout the checkout and order process.
  4. Yes bsmither has it. But there are other instances where there might be 2 or more items linked or quantities of identical item. Another example would be a battery type for a Schwinn Fly FS that takes a pair of batteries. Those batteries also go into a Schwinn S600 but instead of 2 of that battery it takes 3. I price and inventory each battery individually. So if i make a non inventory item for those Schwinn electric bike models it would be nice to be able to have product options to allow us to add all non inventory items in a list That use that part and the quantity of that part needed. So when that non inventory item is added to the cart it makes a call to those fields for inventory item details and multiplies the price, weight or other calculation values.
  5. Hello everyone, I was wondering if there is some way, without altering code, that Cubecart can allow the linking of merchandise to a non-inventory item. An example would be if you were selling a gear that goes on several bicycle models on the market but are not selling the bicycle itself: So you want the customer to be able to add that gear to the cart and purchase it all the while having reference to the compatible item it goes on while in the cart. I see the options matrix has potential for this but if I have 200 different bicycles that the gear fits and my supplier decides to raise the prices on me, I would have to go in and alter the price for all 200 of those non-inventory bicycles to stay current rather than just changing it under one and having it propagate to all other gear prices. Hope this doesn't sound too confusing but is there a way I can accomplish this easily?
