    Default the download radio button

    Hello
    I wonder if anyone could point me in the right direction - I feel this is a look and feel issue-
    I'm very happy to have got my downloads working, but is it possible to hide the words 'Please Choose', 'Download Zip' and the radio button? It seems silly to ask the customer to make a choice when there is no choice to be made and may just lead to confusion. Doubly so when all my products are downloadable assets anyway. I arrived at this by following tutorials on how to get downloads working.
    TIA for any help

    Default Re: the download radio button

    Just rewrite it to figure out when the radiobutton is in fact an attribute with a download and the only possible choice and whether it should always be selected or not and when it should set it as a hidden selected data that more or less does what the selected radio button does when it is showing ...

    sure ... you have to re-write all of the code for this and not break the existing code ...

    It is on the list of things to do ... but no idea when we will get around to it as it is not at the moment a high priority ...

    Thank you for the reply Ajeh. Alas I am not in a position to write or re-write any kind of code so I'm afraid I didn't understand it either (or rather I understood it but not how to go away and do it!) :)
    Lol, I'd hoped there would be some attribute choices I can switch off to achieve this or perhaps a few lines in the manual I could follow :)
    Cheers anyway.

    Afraid there isn't anything built into Zen Cart at this time to make this easy for you ...

    At some point we will get to it on the famous list of things to do ...

    Default Re: the download radio button

    Hello Folks:

    I am new here, beginning a port of my prior e-commerce solution over to Zencart.

    I found this post, that deals with this problem:

    I'm very happy to have got my downloads working, but is it possible to hide the words 'Please Choose', 'Download Zip' and the radio button?
    Specifically, when you have only one download type to choose from, it would be great to have this option vanish.

    Has the suggested code fix noted midway in this thread been incorporated into the current version of Zencart? I am using the latest of of now, 1.3.9h.

    I have tried using a radio button, with only one option, and the code fix proposed in this thread does not seem to be incorporated as far as I can tell. I checked the code as well, and the changes proposed do not seem to be incorporated.

    Yet... the Zencart PDF manual shopping page actually seems to have this fix applied, which is a bit ironic:

    http://www.cucumbermedia.com/store/i...&products_id=4

    I have found that if I mark the attribute value as 'read only' instead of 'radio box', then at least there is no single radio button presented, but the text is still shown.

    Any new input on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Dan Pronovost

    Be careful ... READONLY Attributes do not get added to the shopping cart as they are READONLY and just meant for display purposes on the product _info ...
