Extended Options

Extended Options
When you want to sell a product which has some variations – for example different size, colour or length – in the default settings of OpenCart it is difficult to orientate between these more options of one product. Even though you sell one product, physically it refers to many different products which vary in a specific attribute. This module enables you to assign for every variation of a product its own stock status and model. It will help you, because it’ll display in customer’s cart and also in his order. So, you will easily know which option (model) of the product you are supposed to send the customer.





Q: Can I use this product for more than one option group?
A: No, the models of product may vary only in one option group (for example only in colour). If you desire to create more option groups for one product, contact us and we will come to an agreement.

Q: Does the module work for more products or just for one?
A: It works for any product you choose. As an administrator you just add more options of the product.

Q: How do I know which model has the customer ordered?
A: Easily, it will display in customer’s cart and in his order.

Q: Is it compatible with my version of OpenCart?
A: All our modules are compatible with the current version of OpenCart. We endeavour to keep our modules updated to the newest version.

Q: It is not working. What should I do?
A: Feel free to contact us either in the comments section below the extension cart, or via our e-mail support@startujemeweby.cz. We will answer you usually in the 72 hours horizon. We will gladly help you to eliminate your problem.

Q: How does it work?
A: Have a look at the How to install? & How to use? section.

Q: May I use it for multiple domains or multiple stores?
A: This module is possible to use for infinitely many domains or stores for free.

Q: What language does the module use?
A: This module can operate in two languages – English and Czech. If your e-shop is in Czech language, the module will also run in Czech. If you use any other language, the module will functionate in English.

Q: With which templates is the module compatible?
A: We guarantee 100 % compatibility for the default template of OpenCart. Your own templates or adjustments might require small changes to guarantee complete functionality.



Download the module from OpenCart Marketplace. Now, there are two ways how to proceed – automatic installation or manual installation. Automatic installation is easy. But sometimes, when the hosting is not supported, you must install the module manually.


Automatic installation


1. Open your Administration of OpenCart. From the menu on the left side choose the category “Extensions” and the subcategory “Installer”.
2. Upload the module you downloaded. The module will be installed.
3. From the menu on the left side in the category “Extensions”, choose the subcategory “Modifications”. On the right side click on the “Refresh” button. This step is important for the installation to be successful.

Automatic installation completed. And how to use?
4. Go to “Catalog”, choose “Products” and from displayed products choose the product which you want to add options. Click to “Edit” this product.
5. Then you to “Option” section and click on blue button “Add Option Value”. By this step you will create a new option of the product. You can create as many options as you need.
6. And at last fill in the “Stock status” and “Model” for every variation of the product.


Manual Installation


1. Extract the downloaded module to any folder in your PC.
2. Open the chosen folder in your FTP client.
3. You will see the file “install.xml”.
4. Rename the file “instal.xml”. For example, rename it into this form “module.ocmod.xml”. The first section “module” is fully on your choice, you can name it any way you like, although the name must be unique – do not use a name of the file, which already exists in your PC. And the second part “.ocmod.xml” must be named exactly in this format. Otherwise the installation will fail.
5. In your FTP client move the “module.ocmod.xml” file from your computer to the FTP server file called “system”.
6. Open your Administration of OpenCart. From the menu on the left side in the category “Extensions”, choose the subcategory “Modifications”. On the right side click on the “Refresh” button. This step is important for the installation to be successful.

Manual installation completed and how to use?
