Out Of Stock Recommendation When Out Of Stock

Out Of Stock Recommendation When Out Of Stock
Why this extension?
This 2 in 1 module recommends looking for similar items when product is out of stock and disables the Add to Cart Button and replace it with Out of Stock (On Product Page Only).
    1) This does not show for products that are in stock.
    2) If the product is out of stock and does not have a primary category, it disables the add to cart button but does not show the notice.

Once you click the recommendation link, the module then takes you to the product primary category (Selected by you on product edit page in admin panel) for similar items filtered by In Stock - Only
This ensures that the customer lands on similar products that they were interested in, this time in stock so they can happily make a purchase.
This notice can be potentially be added anywhere on the product page

Notice on product page when out of stock

After you click the links you are redirected to the category page

This module is great for any store that wants to point the customer to similar items when the product they are looking at is temporarily out of stock.

This module was made in .ocmod format so it doesn't override core files
This module was tested with the default 3X theme only
Works with multi-store
For custom theme or personal adjustments, please contact us, we charge a small fee.

Use Case
This is totally separate from the normal category and is not a replacement for it, you should always fill in both.
For example a Nikon Camera would be in the following: Cameras, Electronics
For primary category you should only add camera to refine the scope.
When this Nikon Camera goes out of stock, it will recommend the Camera Category specifically and not Electronics etc
