    If you are using the get_discount_info() function from 1.1 to advertise your better together discounts and you are using add_cat_to_cat(), please edit ot_better_together.php and change line 286 from $disc_link .= to $disc_link =

    Do not use the dot equals assignment for creating $disc_link. So the whole else block should look like this:

    Code:
    else if ( ($li->flavor == CAT_TO_CAT) &&
                    ($li->ident1 == $cat) ) {
                  $match = 1;
                  $disc_link = '<a href="'.zen_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, 'cPath=' . $li->ident2).'">'. zen_get_category_name($li->ident2, $_SESSION['languages_id']).'</a>';
               }
    This will be fixed in the next release.

    Hi, Scott -

    I'm putting this together on a new site, but had a quick question:

    has there been a mod to this contrib to allow for a picture instead of/in addition to the text link to the other product?

    "Buy this, get that for 25% off!"

    is cool, but I'd like something like



    "Buy this, and get for 25% off!"


    Ideas? Possible?

    thanks -

    Hello,

    I've installed the better together module and it works just fine in most cases.
    However, I've got problem in the following (real-world) tax nightmare case :
    - The product and its linked product are in two different tax classes. I can add both products to the cart and get the correct discount, however if ...
    - I add a third unlinked product to the cart (from a third tax class!) ...then I get a wrong discount.

    I guess the discount should not be re-calculated when I add an unlinked product.

    My shop displays prices with tax included, and I've set the better together module to "include taxes"=true and "re-calculate tax"=standard .

    Am I missing something ?

    Nope. This is just an ugly problem. I wrote a pretty long explanation of some of the issues:
    http://www.thatsoftwareguy.com/zenca...sales_tax.html

    Try the Group Discounts module in Zencart and see if you like the tax behavior they used. It was changed in 1.3.6 to use a ratio of the prediscount to post discount prices as a multiplicand to determine a new "adjusted" tax. As mentioned on 31 Oct, if there is sufficient demand, I may fold this algorithm in as an option.

    UPDATE:
    Waited a few minutes and reattempted. Downloaded fine. I've been intermittently observing the above errors when downloading from ZC DOwnloads area lately. Never observed such errors before. Something possibly on my client side or is it a server/host/network issue?

    New sample possibilities in v.1.2
    // Buy item 12, get a second one free.
    // $this->add_twoforone_prod(12);

    // Buy any item from category 10, get a second identical one free
    // $this->add_twoforone_cat(10);
    define('TWOFER', 'Buy this item, get another just like it free!');
    I like BT v.1.2. Thanks for the update Scott!

    Will eventually need to add some buttons to display the BT special offers on the product pages, instead of just the BT text links. Maybe a generic button like: "Discount/Special Offer" then below the button display whatever BT text link applies to the particular discount: e.g. "Buy this item, get TestProduct 2 at 25% off". Or could get really complex and call different button images depending on the type of offer. ;-)

    Also on my radar:

    I'm also using qhome's Tabbed Products v3.8 mod. So just like 'Reviews', 'We Also Recommend', 'CrossSell', and "Ask A Question' it would be cool if 'Better Together' could be integrated into the Tabbed Products mod tab structure. Possibly have a separate tab for Better Together offer. Or even better put objects from 'We Also Recommend', 'CrossSell', and 'Better Together' mods all on the same tab? Just some ideas...

    If using this Better Together feature creates some sales will talk shop owner into springing for the BT extension and Discount Previews extension.

    First I need to roll the new 1.36 shop out and quit the continued detailing, customizing and adding features. Anyone else with the same problem ;-)

    Glad it's working well for you. One thing I forgot to mention in my last post is that the marketing text returned from get_discount_info() has been improved for users of add_prod_to_prod when the first and second parameters are the same (this is a buy one, get the second at a discount type of promotion). For instance, if the third and fourth parameters were "%" and 100, the previous message was

    Buy this item, get a <item name> free.

    The message is now

    Buy this item, get a second one free.

    (and if the third and fourth parameters were, say, "%" and 50, the message would be "Buy this item, get a second one at 50% off").

    The message is unchanged when the first and second parameters differ.

    I think this is a bit less awkward sounding.

    Good luck,

    You could use GD to cook up a button dynamically with the discount verbage on it. A good little project for someone. :)
