Please find MYPRICES COMPONENT after installation in your JOOMLA Admin Area Components Menu.
First you should define some CATEGORIES.
Add a new Category by pressing the NEW Button.
Name your Category, you may leave the alias free, it will be set by Joomla automatically. If this Category is a Subcategory you may adjust the Parent Category.
Language settings and Descriptions are optional. You should not use any special characters or spaces in your category names. German words with ö,ä,ü should be avoided as well as ñ, á, é, ó, ú in spanish pages.
Your category names are used to address the listings in your plugin code later on, these names must not be readable towards your customers as they will not get them to see. You may also use names like "list1", "list2" etc.
Save the category.
Categories are important to select different prices.
You will have the option to display different pricelists in your content, each pricelist will be called by the category title.
Category = "MyServices" for the courses that you offer
Category = "Rental" for the equipment you rent out for the course participants
Now add your prices
After you have defined the Categories you may now add your prices to the listing.
Add a new price:
Now you can name your price, e.g. "Bungee Jumping Course"
Select the Category
Select the type of price
- something to sell
- a service like the Bungee Jumping Course
- something for rent
- or a supplemental price (In the Pricelist this price will automatically be displayed with a "+" before the price)
You can have 2 main prices and an additional suppelement price.
Usually you will only use the first price. Your listing then will look like this:
In some cases you have 2 different prices e.g. one per day and another per week, so you can use price and 2nd price. The header title of each price will be defined late in the plugin. Your listing will look like this:
| Bungee Course
|| 250 €
|| 290 €
"Supplement for Price" and "Supplement for Price 2" is a text that will be displayed superscripted behind the price as a reference which you can refer to later in your content. This would look like this:
1) Bungee rope included
If you use a Supplement Text and Supplement Price, this will be shown in two extra columns. It can be used to display extra charges and it would look like this:
| Bungee Course
|| 250 €
||+ 45 €
The sort order is important to order your listing, you may use 0, 1, 2, 3 ... as well as a, b, c, d ... or other. If you do not give a sort order, all your prices will be listed in an alphabetical order by the title.
The description is optional. It can be displayed below the Title and would look like this:
