Plugin update: Related Products – 1.9.6

The 1.9.6 Plugin update for Related Products adds support for an ‘Add to Cart’ button appearing beside suggested Products. This button can be toggled on/off within the Settings page.

I’ve also put some work into filtering out unsized Product images with Related Products now checking that the appropriate Product thumbnail image exists prior to displaying the suggested Products. In a future Plugin update I will include support for managing the Product image thumbnail sizes for suggested Products.

It’s a short list for this Plugin update but there’s some goodies sorted in this release, if you’re running WP e-Commerce 3.8 I recommend updating to 1.9.5.

Related Products gets minor update to 1.6.1

This minor update to Related Products renames ‘Disregard Related Products for this product’ to ‘Use automatic selection of Related Products’ and adds per-product basis for ‘Disregard Related Products for this product’.

As discussed on the Support Forum I’ve renamed ‘Disregard Related Products for this product’ to ‘Use automatic selection of Related Products’. In doing this I’ve added ‘Disregard Related Products for this product’ which works as intended, disabling all Related Products functionality for that Product.

I’ve finally cracked the ‘best’ way to detect the Product details page, this support will move forward in WP e-Commerce 3.8.

Related Products gets easy manual Product selection in 1.6

I’ve been laying low last few days learning about the depths of WP e-Commerce to integrate my Plugins even better, take a look at what I’ve come up with in 1.6!

You can now manually assign related Products to each Product using a simple check box selection system, no more custom Product meta! I’ll be embedding this customisation across all of my Plugins as I continue to learn more and more through my experience with the Instinct team. Oh, and I’ve also filtered out the Product being displayed also showing up in the Related Products list!

Give it a go, read the Product detail page for Related Products or for existing customers download the latest release today.

Related Products turns 1.5

The migration from custom Page Templates is almost done – only Wholesale Pricing and Bulk Product Manager remain – so I’ve embarked on my next mission, adding configurable Admin page under Store > Upgrades, Related Products and Printable Invoices are the first Plugins in this series!

The positioning of the Related Products element within the Product detail template (single_product.php) can now be managed from a drop-down option within Store > Upgrades > Related Products. I’ve added support for manual positioning through the template tag wpsc_the_related_products(); make sure you set the Position to Manual if you plan to manually place the Related Products element. I’m in the process of going through and updating documentation to explain how to manually specify related products as well as other goodies for this Plugin.
