Attention green.png Important Information:

It is important to check what theme is used in your store. Plumrocket Demo Themes do not require any adjustments when this Magento Cart Reservation extension is being installed, which means that you can continue the installation process without making any changes in your code. But if you are using a different Magento theme, be sure to make the following changes in the code.



Code for displaying cart reservation timer on Product Page

To add cart reservation timer anywhere on the product page, edit the corresponding html file:

 theme_path/default/default/template/catalog/product/view.phtml

by adding the following code:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('cartreservation_product') ?>


Code for all product types on Product List page

For grouped products find the file that can be reached at this access path on your server:

 /app/design/frontend/THEME_NAME/default/template/catalog/product/view/type/grouped.phtml


Step #1. Find and replace these two snippets of code. First find the code:

<?php if ($_product->isAvailable() && $_hasAssociatedProducts): ?>
 <p class="availability in-stock"><?php echo $this->__('Availability:') ?> 
<span><?php echo $this->__('In stock') ?></span></p>
<?php else: ?>

<?php if ($_product->isAvailable() && $_hasAssociatedProducts): ?>
 <p class="availability in-stock"><?php echo $this->__('Availability:') ?>
<span><?php echo $this->__('In stock') ?></span></p>
<?php else: ?>
 <p class="availability out-of-stock"><?php echo $this->__('Availability:') ?>
!!-<span><?php echo $this->__(($_product->getIsReserved()? 'Reserved': 'Out of stock')) ?></span></p>-!!
<?php endif; ?>


Step #2. Next, find the second snippet of code in the same file

<?php if ($_item->isSaleable()) : ?>
 <input type="text" name="super_group[<?php echo $_item->getId() ?>]" maxlength="12"
 value="<?php echo $_item->getQty()*1 ?>" title="<?php echo $this->__('Qty') ?>" class="input-text qty" />
<?php else: ?>
  !!-<p class="availability out-of-stock"><span><?php echo $this->__('Out of stock') ?>-!!
</span></p>
<?php endif; ?>

and replace it with this one either:

<?php if ($_item->isSaleable()) : ?>
 <input type="text" name="super_group[<?php echo $_item->getId() ?>]" maxlength="12"
 value="<?php echo $_item->getQty()*1 ?>" title="<?php echo $this->__('Qty') ?>" class="input-text qty" />
<?php else: ?>
  !!-<p class="availability out-of-stock"><span><?php echo $this->__(($_item->getIsReserved()? 'Reserved': 'Out of stock')) ?>-!!
</span></p>
<?php endif; ?>



Code for Downloadable product pages

Attention: Skip this step if you are using Plumrocket Private Sales Theme.

For downloadable products find the file that can be reached at this access path on your server:

Find the code:

<?php if($_product->isSaleable()): ?>
 <p class="availability in-stock"><?php echo $this->__('Availability:') ?> 
<span><?php echo $this->__('In stock') ?></span></p>
<?php else: ?>
 <p class="availability out-of-stock"><?php echo $this->__('Availability:') ?> 
!!-<span><?php echo $this->__('Out of stock') ?></span></p>-!!
<?php endif; ?>

and replace it with this one either:

<?php if($_product->isSaleable()): ?>
 <p class="availability in-stock"><?php echo $this->__('Availability:') ?> 
<span><?php echo $this->__('In stock') ?></span></p>
<?php else: ?>
 <p class="availability out-of-stock"><?php echo $this->__('Availability:') ?>
