    Default Re: Salemaker only works for entire store

    Resting was designed for sites that do not have master_categories_id as they import their products and do not use the Admin ...

    If you already have master_categories_id in your products table ... then you do not need to reset them as they are already there ...

    What you should do is determin, based on your Category structure, what Category "owns" the product so that you can set the Master Category ...

    If you walk down aisle A in the store and find a widget on sale for $10 off ... then walk down aisle F in the store and find the widget ... it should also be on sale for $10 off ...

    Just because it is not in its "main" aisle does not change its price ...

    You need to determin what Category owns your products so when you put a category on sale ... the product goes on sale everywhere regardless of the Linked Categories that it may be in ...

    NOTE: You can also use the updater on the bottom of the Multiple Categories Link Manager to set a given Category as the Master Category for all Products that are in that Category ...

    Thanks, Ajeh, I think I understand that better now.

    I guess the problem is we want to put the subcategories on sale as well -- is there just no way to do this? Like for instance, we want all our "blue" items on sale, whether they're widgets, gadgets or doodads. The way it's working, we can't put the "blue" category on sale, but we can make a coupon that works for all the "blue" products. We would much rather be able to put the category on sale.

    Is there no way to do this without moving all the blue widgets, blue gadgets, and blue doodads into the "Blue" as it's master category?

    You can put any Category or SubCategory on sale ...

    You just need to assure that if the Categories are:

    Widgets
    Blue Widgets (only holds blue ones)
    Red Widgets (only holds red ones)
    All Widgets (has all widgets)

    That the Blue Widgets is the Master Category for those Products and that they are Linked to the All Widgets category ...

    Now when Blue Widgets are on sale, they will be on sale in both the Blue Widgets and All Widgets categories ...
