Just a note to you about the tutorial "ocPortal Tutorial: Custom structured content (via catalogues)". There is no content for eCommerce Catalogues even though the Table of contents under your listing 1. d. eCommerce catalogues indicates there is (or should be) info about using catalogues for eCommerce. If there was content, the content would be found at http://ocportal.com/docs/tut_catalogues.htm#title__11

I only found it because I was interested in the eCommerce potential of ocPortal and looking for more info.

Thanks, content should be..



ocPortal can have special eCommerce catalogues, which integrate with the ocPortal shopping cart. These catalogues provide the following special functionality:
  • special templating for tidy product display
  • easy adding to the shopping cart
  • tax calculation
  • discounting
  • stock counting
  • view tracking

An eCommerce catalogue always assumes it has a number of special eCommerce fields as the first fields in the catalogue. The default 'product' catalogue is configured like this and thus can be used as a reference for creating more product catalogues, if desired (few users will, however, require more than one product catalogue).
If an eCommerce catalogue is not correctly configured errors will occur.
The special eCommerce fields are:
  • title
  • code
  • price_pre_tax
  • reduction_start
  • reduction_end
  • stock_level [allows blank, meaning 'not stock counted']
  • stock_level_warn_at [allows blank, meaning 'not stock counted']
  • stock_level_maintain
  • tax_type
  • weight
  • description

I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.

Well, we have a basic inbuilt cart, otherwise there'd need to be some coding involved.
