I have followed magento since the first announcement but didn’t had the time to really experiment with it. I’m evaluating magento right now before migring already in production website to a new frontend/backend solution in order to manage front catalog, shopping cart and marketing.
Do you one of us think it’s possible to extends magento functionnality to make something like that :
a product = model + sku + product description, caracteristics, attributes, pricing, shipping + total photos
I don’t want any process that convert my photos, I just want to find a way to configure my templates or shop config to link photo sets to sku with a common pattern url, cause i also want to know the photos url in other websites or in our intranet sale management soft…
For example patterns urls could be like that :
photo_prefix = http://photos.myshop.com/photos/
photo_thumb = photo_prefix + model name + /(increment depending on the total photos amount) + sku +_thumb.jpg
photo_small = photo_prefix + model name + / (increment depending on the total photos amount) + sku +_small.jpg
photo_big = photo_prefix + model name + /(increment depending on the total photos amount) + sku +_big.jpg
Do you think the better way is to write a new module, to hack some parts of core code + database like you do ?
Do you think it’s relevant for some other of us or are we really a few within the same questions ???
