Hello,

Sure! you'll just have to :
- Go to the page "Hikashop->System->Emails"
- Edit the "HikaAuction : Auction outbid notification" email
- Edit the "Preload version" code and change these lines :

$vars = array(
	'LIVE_SITE' => HIKASHOP_LIVE,
	'URL' => HIKASHOP_LIVE,
);

By :
$vars = array(
	'LIVE_SITE' => HIKASHOP_LIVE,
	'URL' => HIKASHOP_LIVE,
	'PRODUCT_URL' => $front_product_url,
);
- Edit the "HTML version" and add the that code where you want to add the link to your product page :
{VAR:PRODUCT_URL}

Added the preload and html code. When I click the link in the outbid notification email, it says that the product is not found.

I setup the auction items under a separate folder under the "root". Did this so that the auction items would not show on my online store. Is it possible that this is the reason the link isn't working?

Just tried adding it under products category - and that doesn't work either. Hopefully you can help Mohammed - go live in two days. Thanks in advance :)

Hi,

So what is the link that is generated in the email ? And what is the real link to the product page on your frontend ?

Hi Hika Auction Team,

I know it's the weekend, but I could really use some help. We go live with our auction in a day. I need to get the product link working on the outbid notification. Here's what the preload hikaauction outbid notification - preload version shows:

defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted access');
?><?php

global $Itemid;
$url_itemid = '';
if(!empty($Itemid))
	$url_itemid = '&Itemid=' . $Itemid;

$texts = array(
	'MAIL_HEADER' => JText::_('HIKASHOP_MAIL_HEADER'),
	'MAIL_TITLE' => JText::_('AUCTION_EMAIL_OUTBID_TITLE'),
	'MAIL_MESSAGE' => JText::sprintf('AUCTION_EMAIL_OUTBID_MESSAGE', $data->product->product_name,$data->price),
	'HI_USER' => JText::sprintf('HI_CUSTOMER',@$data->user->username),
	'ORDER_END_MESSAGE' => JText::sprintf('BEST_REGARDS_CUSTOMER',$mail->from_name)
);

$front_product_url = hikashop_frontendLink('product&task=show&cid[]='.$data->product->product_id . $url_itemid);

$vars = array(
	'LIVE_SITE' => HIKASHOP_LIVE,
	'URL' => HIKASHOP_LIVE,
        'PRODUCT_URL' => $front_product_url,
);

The link that shows up in the email is incorrect. Can anyone help? Thank you!

Hi,

Try changing the line:

$front_product_url = hikashop_frontendLink('product&task=show&cid[]='.$data->product->product_id . $url_itemid);
to:
$front_product_url = hikashop_frontendLink('product&task=show&cid='.$data->product->product_id .'&name='.$data->product->product_alias .$url_itemid);
(supposing that the alias is properly set in the product's settings).

Including the detail on the product...as you mentioned you were assuming the alias was setup properly.

This is the product setup. Item id =622



249= hikashop menu id, not the auction (the link shows 249).
The auction menu id=1181

We go live in a couple hours. I'm guessing this is not an easy solve? Also wondering if the email titles not functioning has something to do with the issue?

Hello,

Can you :
- Go to the page "Hikashop->System->Emails"
- Edit the "HikaAuction : Auction outbid notification" email
- Edit the "Preload version" code

- Replace that line :

$front_product_url = hikashop_frontendLink('product&task=show&cid[]='.$data->product->product_id . $url_itemid);
By :
$front_product_url = hikashop_frontendLink('index.php?option=com_hikashop&ctrl=product&task=show&cid[]=' . $data->product->product_id . $url_itemid);

We go live in a couple hours. I'm guessing this is not an easy solve? Also wondering if the email titles not functioning has something to do with the issue?


Actually we already fixed that issue through the last HikaAuction version, you'll just have to download it through our website, and install it.

Thank you for your feedback !

Dancing a jig!!! Thank you so much - it works!

On the email - I have version 1.2 - I believe that's the latest...I checked my subscription to download, and it still shows 1.2. Is it different?

Thank you all for your help! :)
