I tried implementing the reward points from phparch book and it doesn’ work.
I need to do something similar, but I can’t find help on the forums, wiki, or anywhere else.
I’m also trying to do this via modules and not altering core.
1.) Assign a value to products.
2.) Accumulate that value when product orders are complete.
3.) Add a link on the dashboard menu and a page to show them their points.
1.) Which event do I need to subscribe to in order to capture order? How in my config.xml can I subscribe to it.
2.) Whats the best strategy for altering the customers dashboard w/o breaking upgradeability? Where does the design for this reside? How do I set up config.xml to implement this?
Hope this is clear and not a jumbled mess. The reward pionts module from the book was near perfect except it added the points values on the main dashboard page and not as a menu link, and it just didn’t work when I implemented it.
