This document offers the basic knowledge for installing , configuring and using the Product Builder component.So in order to work we have to create a set of Custom Products and Groups.After the installation go to the "Custom Products" view and press "New" to create a new one.Name: The name of the group will be either the group's header or the 1st option in the products list.Custom Product: is the “Custom Product” in which this group belongs.
Default Product: A group can have a preselected product. In case of non-editable group every virtuemart product can become default.Default Quantity: The quantity of the group by default.Display Quantity Box : Display or not the quantity box.This is used to search individual products of that group, if it has a lot of products.The used search engine is quite advanced and is the same used by our Custom Filters extension. The search engine can be configured from the component's configuration.
Even if a Custom Product has an image and a Description, we can set them not to be displayed in the front-end. If you intent to use the 'compatibility check' in your products the 'Compatibility' should be set to yes. So if you are using more than one languages in your e-shop, you can create multiple instances of a custom product for the different languages you have.
