Hi Holub,

Interesting idea (it is a good alternative to people manually making a downloadable catalogue) - looks good
Seems perhaps options and variants are not noted / shown for each product in pdf - it would be nice to add those as well.

Cheers - Asiaplay

Default Re: PDF Catalog Generator Mod (beta testers required)

Thankyou.

I've installed the mod, very easy. Only 2 files to upload and no code to change.

Will the final version have more configerable options. At the moment the pictures are hige, some items take up one page which makes for alot of pages of someone was to print it out.
Out of stock items dont appear in the list either.
I have a catagory with one item in, which is out of stock. The catagory is still there but the item is not due to it being out of stock.
I'd want the catalogue to list all products, wether in stock or not.

Once you click create PDF, it takes a few seconds as you'd expect and you then get prompted to save or open the file.
Would it be possible to code in a place to save the file. So you can have a link in the shop front do download PDF, then when you re-generate the pdf for new stock it automatically saves to the location. Saving time in uploading the new file.
