Catalog Price Rules “By percentage of the special price” not an option

Catalog Price Rules do not appear to allow discounts based on the special (sale) price of an item - only the original price. Anyone know of a way around this?

Thanks.

Go to admin: Catalog->Attributes->Manage attributes.
Search for the attribute with the code ‘special_price’, Edit it and set the value for ‘Use for Promo Rule Conditions’ to Yes.
This should do it.

I see a “Use for Price Rule Conditions” setting there, and it is currently set to Yes. I do not see a “Use for Promo Rule Conditions” setting on that page. Currently running Magento v. 1.4.0.1.

Thanks.

You are probably right.
I checked on an 1.4.1.1 instance.
Unfortunately I don’t have a 1.4.0.1 version to test
You can try upgrading to 1.5.0.0.

Even I tried setting use for promotional rules as yes from admin - Manage Attributes for special price. Still catalog price rules discounts doesnt work for special prices. Any clue why its not working or how to make it work.
