How to show savings in Featured Products

Submitted by IG on Thu, 2018-04-12 09:49 in

Hi David

I have created an additional field "old price", which I managed to show in Featured Products.

In addition, I would like to show the savings (price - old price) in absolute terms.

For example: (price = 100 usd) (old price = 150 usd)

How can I show the savings of 50 usd in Featured products?

Cheers, IG

Hi,

In your Featured Products / Each template, use %SAVINGS% as the placeholder and then edit pto_featured.php and look for the following code at line 145:

  $each = str_replace("%PRICE%",$pto_config_currencyHTML.$row->minPrice,$each);

...and REPLACE with:

  if ($row->old_price > $row->minPrice)
  {
    $savings = "SAVE ".$pto_config_currencyHTML.pto_common_decimalise($row->old_price - $row->minPrice);
  }
  else
  {
    $savings = "";
  }
  $each = str_replace("%SAVINGS%",$savings,$each);
  $each = str_replace("%PRICE%",$pto_config_currencyHTML.$row->minPrice,$each);

(if old_price isn't exactly what you have used for the old price field name, modify the two instances in the above replacement as required...)

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
David.

Works perfectly. Thank you very much.

Is there a way to see in the backend, which products have the biggest savings?

Hi,

Sure - in the backend / Price Tapestry installation ( e.g. /pt/ ) edit search.php and look for the following code at line 83:

    $orderByDefault["rating"] = "rating DESC";

...and REPLACE with:

    $orderByDefault["saving"] = "(old_price - price) DESC";
    $orderByDefault["rating"] = "rating DESC";

(as above, if old_price isn't exactly what you have used modify as required)

Then browse to

/pt/search.php?q=bw:&sort=saving

(bw: is the "begins with" search operator, and without anything after the ":" it returns all products...)

Cheers,
David.

Hi David

How can I show the savings on this page: /pt/search.php?q=bw:&sort=saving

Cheers, IG

Hi,

If you edit search.php and first change the replacement above to add the sort so that instead of:

    $orderByDefault["saving"] = "(old_price - price) DESC";

...you now have:

    $orderByDefault["saving"] = "saving DESC";

Then look for the following code at line 234:

  $sql = "SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS id,COUNT(id) AS numMerchants,MIN(price) as minPrice FROM `".$config_databaseTablePrefix."products` WHERE ".$where.$priceWhere." GROUP BY search_name";

...and REPLACE with:

  $sql = "SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS id,COUNT(id) AS numMerchants,MIN(price) as minPrice,(MAX(old_price)-MIN(price)) AS saving FROM `".$config_databaseTablePrefix."products` WHERE ".$where.$priceWhere." GROUP BY search_name";

Finally, in html/searchresults.php look for the following code at line 59:

  <span class='pt_sr_price'><?php print tapestry_price($product["minPrice"]); ?></span>

...and REPLACE with:

  <span class='pt_sr_price'><?php print tapestry_price($product["minPrice"]); ?></span>
  <?php
    if (isset($product["saving"]))
    {
      print "<br />Saving ".tapestry_price(tapestry_decimalise($product["saving"]));
    }
  ?>

The saving will then be displayed below the price in search results...

Cheers,
David.
