Lightbulb "Track Package" with Google for "Order Shipped" Email notification

I decided to make a change to the way the tracking information shows on the "Order Shipped" email notification. This is useful for companies that ship using UPS, FedEx, & USPS without using the modules. We typically offer "Standard Shipping" for a flat rate but we utilize all three shipping methods.

Step 1
Insert the following code at line 2123 of file
Quote:
/Classes/XLite/Model/Order.php

PHP Code:
/**
     * Get the link for the google tracking information
     *
     * @param string $trackingNumber Tracking number value
     *
     * @return string
     */
    
public function getGoogleTrackingURL($trackingNumber)
    {
        return 
$this->"https://www.google.com/search?q=".$trackingNumber;
    } 

Step 2

In your admin console, go to:

Quote:
Store Setup -> Email notifications -> Order Shipped

Click the "Edit via Webmaster Mode" button.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the label "Tracking numbers:"



Open the editor and change the code in bold below:

Original Code:
Code:
{## # ____file_title____ # # @ListChild (list="tracking.info", weight="10") #} <p style="font-weight: bold;">{{ t('Tracking numbers') }}:</p> {% for number in this.trackingNumbers %} <div> {% if this.order.getTrackingInformationURL(number.value) %} {% if this.order.isTrackingInformationForm(number.value) %} <form method="{{ this.order.getTrackingInformationMethod(number.value)|raw }}" action="{{ this.order.getTrackingInformationURL(number.value) }}" target="_blank" > {% for name, value in this.order.getTrackingInformationParams(number.value) %} <input type="hidden" name="{{ name }}" value="{{ value }}" /> {% endfor %} <span>{{ number.value }} - </span> <button type="submit">{{ t('Track package') }}</button> </form> {% else %} <span>{{ number.value }} - </span> <a href="{{ this.order.getTrackingInformationURL(number.value) }}" target="_blank">{{ t('Track package') }}</a> {% endif %} {% else %} {{number.value}} </a> {% endif %} </div> {% endfor %}

New Code:
Code:
{## # ____file_title____ # # @ListChild (list="tracking.info", weight="10") #} <p style="font-weight: bold;">{{ t('Tracking numbers') }}:</p> {% for number in this.trackingNumbers %} <div> {% if this.order.getTrackingInformationURL(number.value) %} {% if this.order.isTrackingInformationForm(number.value) %} <form method="{{ this.order.getTrackingInformationMethod(number.value)|raw }}" action="{{ this.order.getTrackingInformationURL(number.value) }}" target="_blank" > {% for name, value in this.order.getTrackingInformationParams(number.value) %} <input type="hidden" name="{{ name }}" value="{{ value }}" /> {% endfor %} <span>{{ number.value }} - </span> <button type="submit">{{ t('Track package') }}</button> </form> {% else %} <span>{{ number.value }} - </span> <a href="{{ this.order.getTrackingInformationURL(number.value) }}" target="_blank">{{ t('Track package') }}</a> {% endif %} {% else %} <span>{{ number.value }} - </span> <a href="{{ this.order.getGoogleTrackingURL(number.value) }}" target="_blank">{{ t('Track Package') }}</a> {% endif %} </div> {% endfor %}

Make sure to click the "Save Changes" button!

Step 3

Re-deploy Store

Quote:
System Tools -> Cache Management



The track package button will open a new tab and navigate to a google search with the tracking number. Google will automatically detect the carrier based on the tracking number and offer a link to the carrier's tracking page.

Note: You will probably have to repeat step 1 after a core upgrade, unless XC decides to add this to the core in future updates.
