    $6,000!?

    How about you talk to your boss =)

    Kim, are there any plans for Zen to implement a solution like this?

    I wasn't bumping because of that code - seems like there's a lot of interest in a configurator solution and I figured someone here would come up with an answer sooner or later - hence the bump

    I second the bump, if Zen cart would offer a full featured PC configurator solution I would buy in a heart beat!

    Absolute gem of a script dude well done.

    However, we have discussed offering the script for sale.

    In your opinion, what would you think a script like this is worth?

    My boss obviously thought it was worth over $6000, because that's what he paid to have it written.
    We am considering a zencart contribution/module for our new online store which is in development, I would be happy to release the code to the community once it is completed no problems, time scale unknown sorry, however our site is in the final stages, and we have requested quotes on freelancer sites.

    Love zencart well done people.

    Dear all,

    I was working on this idea, and with a little help we can have a pc configurator.

    HERE's MY DEDICATED THREAD FOR THIS TOPIC:
    http://www.zen-cart.com/forum/showthread.php?t=70184

    I made a copy of product_listing.php from includes/modules and named it pc_configurator.php

    Then, in the tpl_modules_product_listing.php, I made some changes so if the category I created and I want to use as configurator is showing, then we load the new file from modules -> pc_configurator.php instead of product_listing.php

    I also added some new classes in the stylesheet.css to use for this purpose and some new...... SEE BELLOW SOME STEPS I MADE AND IF SOMEONE THINKS HE CAN HELP.....LETS TRY IT.

    You can see what the diference is, comparing to other categories of my web site:

    Compare this category with any other to see the difference:

    http://www.lebrand.gr/eshop/index.ph...&cPath=116_137

    Well, if I name this category PC CONFIGURATOR, and the add products with general names , to be the items, like CASE, HDD, VGA, FDD, DVD-RW DRIVE, MOTHERBOARD etc, then I can add ATTRIBUTES to all these parts with specific brands and charachteristics and prices, so then I have my configurator done.

    The only thing remaining, is to show the cart on this page and prices change dinamically when I choose diferent attributes. Then I use the button "Add Selected Products to Cart" . THE GOOD THING IS THAT :

    CUSTOMER CAN DELETE A SPECIFIC PART, AFTER HE HAS ADDED IT IN THE CART AND GO BACK TO CONFIGURATOR TO SELECT ANOTHER.

    WE CAN EASILY MAKE A PRODUCT WITH MANY-MANY ATTRIBUTES LIKE THIS:

    http://www.lebrand.gr/eshop/index.ph...products_id=26

    TO USE IT AS A PC CONFIGURATOR BUT CUSTOMER COULD NOT DELETE A SPECIFIC PART. HE SHOULD DELETE THE PRODUCT AND BUILD IT FROM THE START !!!

    THE NEW WAY IT IS EASIER !!! LETS MAKE A TEAM TO HAVE IT DONE !!!
    Code:
    define('FILENAME_PC_CONFIGURATOR', 'pc_configurator.php');
    Code:
    ALTER TABLE `products` ADD COLUMN `pc_configurator_sort_order` int(3) NOT NULL default '0' AFTER `metatags_title_tagline_status`;
    
    ALTER TABLE `products` ADD COLUMN `pc_configurator_cpu_type` int(1) NOT NULL default '0' AFTER `pc_configurator_sort_order`;
    
    ALTER TABLE `products` ADD COLUMN `pc_configurator_part_name` varchar(64) NOT NULL default '' AFTER `pc_configurator_cpu_type`;
    
    ALTER TABLE `products` ADD COLUMN `pc_configurator_compatibility` int(1) NOT NULL default '0' AFTER `pc_configurator_part_name`;
    
    ALTER TABLE `categories` ADD COLUMN `pc_configurator` int(1) NOT NULL default '0' AFTER `categories_status`;
    Code:
    INSERT INTO `configuration` VALUES ('',  
    'Activate PC Configurator / 1=on 0=off', 
    'PRODUCT_LIST_CONFIGURATOR', 
    '1', 
    'Set this to 1 if you are going to use PC Configurator. This will cause attributes to show on Product Listing<br /> PRODUCT_LIST_CONFIGURATOR', 
    8, 20, now(), now(), NULL, NULL);

    Code:
    INSERT INTO `configuration` VALUES ('',
    'Display Category/Manufacturer Filter on PC Configurator / 1=on 0=off', 
    'PRODUCT_LIST_FILTER_CONFIGURATOR', 
    '1', 
    'Do you want to display the Category/Manufacturer Filter?<br /> PRODUCT_LIST_FILTER_CONFIGURATOR', 
    8, 21, now(), now(), NULL, 
    "zen_cfg_select_option(array('0', '1'),");

    Code:
    INSERT INTO `configuration` VALUES ('',
    'Display Product Description PC Configurator / Set chars', 
    'PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_CONFIGURATOR', 
    '1', 
    'Set the maximum charachters to display for product description on PC Configurator.<br /> PRODUCT_LIST_DESCRIPTION_CONFIGURATOR',
