Price breaks and template controls in osCmax
In the upcoming osCmax v2.1 release, new product pricing features have been added to allow for quantity price breaks. These price breaks can be set per product and per customer group allowing you to specify different price breaks for each and every item in your inventory. Additionally, you can specify different price breaks for different customer groups, such as retail, wholesale, etc...
This new pricing feature allows for 10 levels of price breaks per customer group by default, but any number of breaks can be easily configured via the Price Breaks configuration screen. Additionally, product quantity blocks can be set to force products to only be purchased in set quantity blocks. Discount groups can be set and minimum order quantities can also be set.
Ongoing efforts to make design changes easier for non-technical users are now starting to show up everywhere in the admin panel. While osCmax maintains its flexibility for power users, we now offer easy admin panel controls to move design elements modules and structural features around for those not comfortable looking under the hood.
Adding to the info-box manager there is now a full section dedicated to managing template elements. In the template section of the admin panel, the Template Setup section now has controls to manage choice of template, template switching (ability to switch templates via URL), default store width, default alignment, left and right column widths, show/hide left/right columns, and AJAX search suggest on/off.
Next, there is now a Page Modules controller that manages the various modules in osCmax. Examples of modules are the new Slide Show module, Articles, Also Purchased module, and Featured Sets. Modules can be turned on and off via this new control panel. Their sort order is also controlled here, so you can now easily re-arrange the different page modules without having to edit any template files.
The Page Module controller also allows for easy addition of new modules to the management system right through the admin panel. Of course, the module will have to already be installed on the system (files uploaded and appropriate code changes) in order to take effect.
