View Full Version : Expired Products

Expired Products adds the ability to flag products with an expiration flag and date. This is very useful when selling things like tickets to events.

This contribution is loosely based on "Products Date Expiry" created by Axel Erpenbach (http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2064/category,all/search,events). Axel's contribution uses sql queries to filter out expired products. This is a fine method of handling product expiry, but has the downside of requiring that all products be marked with an expiration date.

Rather than filtering out expired products using an expiration date when fetching the data, Expired Products sets a field (products_does_expire) to indicate that the product does or does not expire. This allows you to pull all the products and then filter the results within the code.
