The main point was if I remember correctly that a plenty of input fields for quantities look a bit messy and a customer might be confused what should he put there.
If you can provide a screenshot or nice HTML of how you think it should look like we might consider adding this in future releases.
Same thing needed here - can’t understand why it’s included for the other options but not for each check box - in fact there should be another option along with the drop downs and radio buttons to have a ‘user quantity’ option would be the way to go - surely it makes sense? I suppose doing this makes it a fine line between a bundled and a grouped product but you can’t create a grouped product that contains more than one group can you?
If anyone is still interested in this topic. I went ahead an implemented the logic and the blank template for this issue. I won’t be putting it into an extension, however, if you would like a copy of the source files, you may reply or PM me.
== INSTALL NOTES ==
The extension is constructed under the assumption that your are using the the “Default” > “Blank” theme. So if you are using a different theme, you will need to copy the skin/template files to the proper theme location. Also the CSS included is just a snippet from the blank theme’s styles.css file. The layouts DO NOT include the extra.css file, so you will either need to copy the contents of that file to a CSS file that is included or add it to a layout file. The CSS is unverified in IE and may need some adjustments to work completely with any other theme.
It uses the normal admin interface for adding “Bundle” products. Simply log into your admin panle (Ex: <http://url.toyourstore.com/admin>), and go to Catalog > Manage Products.
From their you can Add or Edit an existing Bundle. Once you have the product open, click the “Bundle Items” tab under Product Information; this is where you can add/edit bundle groups. For this extension, only bundle groups with Input Type = “Checkbox” have been modified. They show the User Defined Qty column now, which allows you to select whether or not a Qty box will be displayed next to the listed bundle item. That Qty box allows customers to override the Default Qty setting for the bundle item. As a functional implementation, the Qty input box will be disabled in the frontend until the user checks the box.
This sounds great - I’m having some trouble getting this through Rapidshare - any chance someone could upload it here or PM me please? Wondering if this will work with adding a bundled item via the querystring including the quantities?
