    Default Product notifications for Sold out products

    Hi all

    I've spent a few hours looking through the forum but can't find the answer and I bet that it's something really simple.

    Basically I want people to be able to enter there email address to enquire about sold out stock (ie when it will be back in stock, or lead time if it needs to be sourced).

    I'm sure I had this on a previous version of zen many years ago but at the time I didn't need it so I must have turned it off.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    You said you want them to enter an email, and you suggested that they want to actively ask directly about the product status. In that case, perhaps the "Ask a Product Question" plugin might be what you're looking for?

    If you're talking about the built-in support for "product notifications", any logged-in customer can subscribe themselves to specific products, and will be notified when *you* manually go and create a newsletter to send to people subscribed to that specific product's subscribers. This is something *you* must do very intentionally.

    Check out ceon's Back in Stock Notifications: http://www.zen-cart.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=773. It works great!

    Thanks Dr Byte

    The ask a question mod might be the perfect solution.

    Take Care
