I am trying to add a section to magento customers called showroom. I was trying to mock the way customer address are setup/used. I was able to get it working by adding and editing in the magento core files,but now I want to migrate the code to the local code folder to allow clean updating. I was able to override the model/customer, model/entity/customer and other files that are in the core files; but I had added customer/model/showroom.php, customer/model/showroom/abstract.php, customer/model/showroom/config.php, and have not been able to get them to work in my local code folder.
I am not sure how to set up the /etc/congig.xml “models” node to use the new files. I am not sure if I should use rewrite or not.
when the code was all in core/mage/customer folders I just added
If any one could point me in the right direction I would be greatly appreciative.
P.S. Just to reiderate I have no problem rewriteing core files, my problem is adding the “NEW” customer_showroom model information to the customer code.
