How do I configure the module to permit purchases from the wish list?

(2003/06/18)This can be done by adding checkboxes to the wish list page resulting from a search (ie. the "search results" page) and an "add to basket" button at the bottom. The customer, after finding the wish list of their friend, can check which items to add to their basket, the quantity to purchase, and click on the "add to basket" button and the products will be added to their basket. This configuration is set up by default upon installation of the module Each customer with a wish list is given the option of having the quantity of items in their wish list reduced when a purhcase for them is made. In addition, they can select to have the item removed from their wishlist when the purchase quantity reaches the amount they had put in the list.

As you will see in the documentation, tokens can be used in the various templates to display buttons, fields, data, etc.

The ugprade that added this feature adds a few tokens to dislay the checkboxes to select to add the product to the basket and the "add to basket" button. In the main token on the "My Wish List" page and on the "Search Results" page, the token %purchase% can be used to display the "add to basket" button. In the "products template" for both of these pages, the checkbox to add the product to the basket can be shown with the token %addtobasket%. It is set up to have these boxes on the "search results" page by default. In addition, the token %purchased% can also be used in the "Products Template" to display the number of products already purchased from teh customer's wish list.

So the new tokens for the main template on both the "my wish list" and "search results" page:

%purchase%: displays the "add to basket" button

In the "products" templates for both the "my wish list" and "search results" page:

%addtobasket%: replaced with checkbox to add that product to the basket
%purchased%: replaced with the number of that item that have been purchased from the wishlist


Note that the "update" button on the "My Wish List" page has the same functionality as the "add to basket" button on the "search results page" (ie. it will add the products to the basket if the "add to basket" checkbox is checked").

Related to the ability to purchase from the wish list, several options have been added to the Options/Settings tab:

Reduce quantity when purchased: This is the default used if the customer does NOT have the option to select this themselves (and the default for the checkbox when they first are shown the option). If checked, the quantity of the product in the customer's wishlist will be reduced when items are purchased from it.

offer option to customer: if checked, the customer will see the option to select this setting themselves on the Customer Account page.

text for prompt: the text that is used before the prompt on the customer account page.


Delete item when quantity zero: This is the default used if the customer does NOT have the option to select this themselves (and the default for the checkbox when they first are shown the option). If checked, items that have their quantity reduced to zero by purchases are deleted from the wish list.

offer option to customer: if checked, the customer will see the option to select this setting themselves on the Customer Account page.

text for prompt: the text that is used before the prompt on the customer account page.

Note for customer account page: this field (which can text or HTML) can be used to configure text that will be displayed above the Wish List options on the customer account page.
