Out of stock Urgent

Welcome Uzair007! Glad to see you made it to the forum.

 

Is this message to be shown on a "per-product" basis? That is, only "Widget", currently out of stock, can be delivered in 8 weeks. The out of stock product, "Wabbit", however, cannot.

 

If this message can be applied globally, then there are at least two edits: the skin template file content.product.php and the class file catalogue.class.php.

 

In content.product.php, find where you want the message to appear, and add:

{if $CTRL_OUT_OF_STOCK}Put your message here.{/if}

In catalogue.class.php, near line 220, starts the logic to set the 'out' flag that indicates whether a product is out of stock.

 

The 'out' flag is initially set to false. Then, a test is made to determine if this product must be handled according to its stock level -- 'use_stock_level'. For this to work, you must enable Use Stock Level in the product's Edit screen.

 

If we are using stock levels to allow/disallow purchasing, there follows a pair of nested tests -- is the stock level zero, then if so, is an out of stock item allowed to be purchased. If not, set 'out' to true and 'allow_purchase' to false.

 

We need to set 'out' to true regardless of whether to allow an out of stock item to be purchased.

 

Near lines 221-228, find:

if ((int)$stock_level <= 0) {
  // Out of Stock
  if (!$GLOBALS['config']->get('config', 'basket_out_of_stock_purchase')) {
    // Not Allowed
    $allow_purchase = false;
    $out = true;
  }
}

Change to:

if ((int)$stock_level <= 0) {
  // Out of Stock
  $out = true;
  if (!$GLOBALS['config']->get('config', 'basket_out_of_stock_purchase')) {
    // Not Allowed
    $allow_purchase = false;
  }
}

For completeness, also near lines 889-896, find:

if ((int)$stock_level <= 0) {
  // Out of Stock
  if (!$GLOBALS['config']->get('config', 'basket_out_of_stock_purchase')) {
    // Not Allowed
    $product['ctrl_purchase'] = false;
    $product['out'] = true;
  }
}
Change to:
if ((int)$stock_level <= 0) {
  // Out of Stock
  $product['out'] = true;
  if (!$GLOBALS['config']->get('config', 'basket_out_of_stock_purchase')) {
    // Not Allowed
    $product['ctrl_purchase'] = false;
  }
}
