    Idea or Suggestion Back In Stock Notifications

    Hi,

    It gives us great pleasure to release a new Zen Cart module - one which we feel many of you will find very useful!


    Back In Stock Notifications

    The Back In Stock Notifications is an extremely handy module which lets customers subscribe to a notification list for a product that has gone out of stock.

    The subscription process is completely automated, customers don't have to have an account to subscribe themselves, but if they do the subscription is automatically associated with their account.

    Once a product is back in stock, an e-mail can be sent to all those subscribed to the notification list for that product, using the convenient admin utility.

    Read on to check out all of the features... we're sure you'll find them very comprehensive!


    Features

    Fully-automated, dynamic subscription display
    • As soon as a product goes out of stock, a message asking customers if they want to “be notified when this product is back in stock...” is shown where the Buy Now button would have been.


    • A form is also displayed directly on the Product Info page to encourage a quick and easy subscription! It is pre-filled if the customer is logged in!
    • If a customer is already subscribed to the Back In Stock Notification List for this product, a message “You have requested to be notified when this product is back in stock” is displayed instead of the subscribe message. The form also isn't added to the page.
    • If a customer is not logged in when they subscribe to a notification list, the subscription is automatically associated with their account.


    Fully-automated unsubscriptions
    • If a customer has an existing account with the store, they can manage their Back In Stock Notification subscriptions directly in their “My Account” section.
    • Customers who have subscribed to a notification list, but don't have an account with the store, can click on a link in their subscription e-mail to unsubscribe, or browse to the unsubscription page on the website and enter the code they were sent in this e-mail.


    Intuitive, comprehensive admin utility

    The admin utility allows a store owner to view existing subscriptions, send subscription notification e-mails and delete old subscriptions. The options it provides are as follows:

    • The current list of products with subscriptions can be viewed. This allows the store owner to quickly and easily see which products customers are interested in as well as the current stock level for each of these products.
    • The current list of products with subscriptions can also be viewed with additional information about the customers subscribed and when they subscribed.
    • A “Test Run” of the subscription notification mailing can be run. This will let the store owner see who would have been e-mailed, and about which product(s). The first e-mail that would have been sent is sent to the store owner so that they check if the e-mail is formatted correctly before the actual run!
    • The actual, real run of the subscription notification mailing can be run. The subscriptions for the completed notifications will then be automatically removed from the database.
    • Subscriptions for products which no longer exist can be expunged from the database.


    Intelligent notifications
    • If a customer is subscribed to several notification lists and a mailing is going out which includes more than one of these products, the notifications for that customer will be combined so they will only receive one e-mail. This looks more professional and minimises any irritation or thoughts of spamming!

    We hope you like this module - feedback is greatly appreciated (As are donations)!

    From the changelog:

    You've either:

    messed up when modifying tpl_product_info_display.php.

    or

    A PHP error is occurring within the added code from that template. Are you sure you've uploaded class.CeonXHTMLHiTemplate.php? If that file was missing the PHP code would fail and break the page as it has on your site.

    I've released a new version of the software as I found a very minor bug when looking at this for you... please download the new version and use the tpl_product_info_display.php from within it and make sure you've uploaded all the files.

    All the best...

    Which version of the module are you using?

    The reason your page is not rendering properly is that something within that block of code is failing and PHP is exiting. More than likely the require_once statement which comes after the line you mentioned is not finding the file it needs.

    If you insert the following lines after the initial <?php // BEGIN BACK... line, the error message should be displayed:

    PHP Code:
    @ini_set('display_errors''1');
     
    error_reporting(E_ALL); 
    Please post that error message here.


    All the best...

    Hi Conor,

    This is the message.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_NEW in /home/electrop/public_html/includes/classes/class.CeonXHTMLHiTemplate.php on line 682

    Link: http://electropath.ca

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Thanks for following up on this.

    Argh! You've found problem with the module... I missed out a single PHP 5 keyword in that file... commented several out but missed that one. You're obviously using PHP4 so it failed to parse the file.

    I'll release an updated version soon. I'd appreciate it if you could simply try this in the meantime:

    Open:

    includes/classes/class.CeonXHTMLHiTemplate.php

    and change line 682 to the following three lines:

    PHP Code:
                            $extract_more_parts false;
                            
    printf("Couldn't find start tag for %s!\n"$part_name);
                            
    //throw new Exception("Couldn't find start tag for $part_name"); 
    Please let me know if that gets things working as expected.

    If it does, I'll repackage the module up as 2.2.2.

    Sorry once again about the oversight!

    All the best...

    Conor
