Package Discounts for Zen Cart

If you want to provide a discount for a kit or collection of items (also known as a package discount), you can now do this using Zen Cart Free Gift Chooser. This capability was already part of Big Chooser, but it now has the convenience of an admin panel.

Free Gift Chooser for Zen Cart now does discounts!

Zen Cart Free Gift Chooser Mega Module version 1.1 now supports discounting by dollars or percentage in addition to free (100% discount). You can even create a final price discount for a group of products.

Free Gift Chooser supports the most common types of discounts people were building with Big Chooser – but with the convenience of an admin panel, instead of having to code the discounts in by hand.

Table Discounts Updates for Zen Cart

Zen Cart Table Discounts now has two new constraint filters (ways of ensuring that only certain items are discounted):

  • set_constraint_attrfilter, which allows you to ensure a constraint has a particular attribute set to a certain value
  • set_constraint_name_includes, which allows you to match on a substring of the product name

Mixed Content Error in Firefox when using CKEditor in Zen Cart

If you have upgraded to FF 23 and suddenly your CKEditor is not working (in admin->catalog->categories/products), take heart: it’s a one line fix to get it back again. Edit

<your renamed admin>/includes/ckeditor.php

and change the inclusion of jsapi to not use a protocol, i.e.

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”//www.google.com/jsapi”></script>

instead of
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://www.google.com/jsapi”></script>

and you should be all set. You will NOT see this issue in FF 22 and prior, only FF23 (and perhaps higher).

NOTE: The latest CKEditor package in the ZC Plugins area already has this change in it.

Numinix Fast and Easy Checkout and Gift Wrapping

A client asked me to install my Gift Wrapping module on his site, which already had Fast and Easy Checkout. In doing so, I found and fixed some bugs in Numinix’s FEC integration of Zen Cart Gift Wrapping.

These bugs are fixed in the latest version of FEC, but it’s a pretty big upgrade if you already have the mod installed, so my fix might be easier to manage.
