Thread: customer groups

  1. #1

    Default customer groups

    I just made up some new customer groups.

    I wanted to make some "specials" and I have to choose from my dropdown menu for which customer group to make that special for. So only when those customers log in, they will see their special price for a particular product. Is there a way to have specials for everyone, like the way it used to show up on my website before I added customer groups?

    No. you have found a defect in the design of specials. There is no "all groups" option.

    Is this something that should be addressed for the next version?

    Actually, this will require changes to a number of files.

    Since customers_groups.customers_group_id starts at 0 for retail you would have to make -1 = all groups

    Then in specials.customers_group_id you would have to make sure you could write a negative number (currently and int(11) )

    Then in specials you would have to add an <option> for that -1 value in the <select>

    Then on the users side, when you check for customers_group_id you would have to add a piece to the query that gets all of that customers_group_id and any specials with a customers_group_id < 0

    That would just about do it.

    [assumption made is that the query is doing the selection of special using the group_id value, it MAY be in an if-then loop and if so you would add the check there. I just don't have the time to check it out now]

    Joan, if you want to make this addition and submit it to the mod, go for it.
