Special Offers section

Post by CMS » Fri Aug 27, 2004 1:12 pm

Is it possible to create a Special Offers section by Supplier or, by Dept, Type, Supplier ?

We have already managed to create a Special Offers section using the [SPECIAL OFFERS] entry in the T2T Notes, but want to display the information in a more user friendly format for our site visitors.

We are now running Norcat v3.2.01 and have reconfigured our settings as follows: Section List - Dept, Type, Supplier, Description - Desc only.

You can use the "|" separator in those T2T notes entries to break the alternative location of a product into sub-sections.

E.g. Instead of just

[SPECIAL OFFERS]

You can have one product with the Notes containing

[SPECIAL OFFERS|SKIING|JACKETS]

and another product might have

[SPECIAL OFFERS|SKIING|BOOTS]

Now you will get a top level section

SPECIAL OFFERS containing sub-sections
--SKIING
----BOOTS
----JACKETS
reconfigured our settings as follows: Section List - Dept, Type, Supplier, Description - Desc only.
This will work fine as long as your customers are shopping by Brand. You may want to go back to your original way if that leads to too many sections (or not enough like products per section).

Remember that if you re-configure your section layout then you will have to alter all these Alt Section and Skip Section entries too.

There is a button on the main Norcat page that will list all products with an Alt Section entry in the Notes field.
