Chapter 2: Installing and Using NetStores
If you sell products that are normally ordered as combinations of several items (for example, a typical computer purchase includes many components and options), you can use NetStores's gen-conf interface. This interface helps customers select an appropriate combination of items.
"Order configured products (gen-conf)" For an online example of this interface, see http://www.netstores.com/dwos-bin/gen-conf?sws5.html+integrix (use "1" for the account number and "captain" for the password. This page helps customers configure a workstation. They can choose things like the CPU speed, monitor size, and whether they want additional options like a floppy drive and cables.
./dwos/data/store-abbrev directory similar to the example provided in the
./dwos/data/integrix/sws5.htmlfile. Use whatever HTML you want to format the page, while following these rules:
<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION=/dwos-bin/post-form>
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=func VALUE=frontend> <INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=mmcust VALUE=store-abbrev>
where store-abbrev is the directory name for your store in the
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Submit Request">
<INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="category" VALUE="item1_no" checked> item1_description <INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="category" VALUE="item2_no" > item2_description <INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="category" VALUE="item3_no" > item3_description
Add the "checked" attribute for the item you want to be checked when the customer first sees the page. category is a name you give all the items in the radio field. (You might want to match these name to the name in a list file (.lst) you use for your gen-srch interface. item#_no must be the unique key value for the item the customer will receives if they select this field. item#_description can be any text you want to use to identify this item.
<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="category" VALUE="item_no" > item_description
category is a name you give this individual checkbox. All checkboxes should have different names. item_no must be the unique key value for the item the customer will receives if they check this field. item_description can be any text you want to use to identify this item.
