Re: Marketing

It would be really helpful to include a detailed description here about what this contribution does ... "these are the extra blocks originally developed by jorditr" isn't very meaningful to most people. And if someone is looking for a "Best Sellers" block, how will they know to install this contrib? It would be nice to reference the original threads on this subject and the announcement of the change: http://www.ubercart.org/forum/announcements/3953/new_marketing_contrib_m...

Re: Re: Re: Marketing

Great module! I was using it before it was seperated from core. I seem to be missing the pictures it was creating in the block 'best sellers'?! Now it "only" gives me the title, add to cart etc. In our case, it worked very intuitively to have an image showing the product image in the block also. Has this been "depreciated"?

The Best Sellers block (as well as the Special Offers block) uses the same theme function as the regular catalog. If images are showing up there, they should show up in those blocks. Maybe imagecache needs its presets flushed? Don't know why they would suddenly break like that.

Re: How can I change the Block name?

The same way as all the others: under Site building > Blocks click the configure link to edit the title on the form.

In my case it showed then both...the Title I have entered PLUS "Special Offers" under it

Ah, sorry. I forgot that this code did things differently. You can change the title under the "Marketing settings" page. I can't decide if it would be better to change the block title under the block settings or the module settings, but I'm inclined to leave well enough alone for the moment.

Re: Marketing

This is great, thanks. Caused me some confusion when the blocks disappeared from my front page after I upgraded to the release candidate, so it's good to have them back now.
