MODx inventory? modifications??

Has anyone modified the snippet to post back all the xml data back into a database from the store? Or maybe just the contact info for mailing updates and reminders?

Just checking here first, didn't have time to re-invent the wheel.

    What exactly are you looking for?

    We have an integration with Campaign Monitor, if that's what you're talking about... once you get the XML parsed, you should be able to do just about anything you want to.
  • The snippet for inventory is well done. I can poke at it and get it to do what I want. I was just making sure someone hadn't already done it for MODx. As always I am under a time restraint.

    Not sure if this is what you're talking about, but I know at least one (actually, I think two, but for sure one) person has done a simple XML -> MySQL dump. Would that help? I've asked them to comment on this thread if they have the time.

    That'd allow you to store all the data you'd need so you can process it later. Might be useful in some situations.
  • Hi Bwente,

    I am launching a site today that does just this, integrating MODx with Foxycart. I'll be making it consumable code for everyone in the near future, in the meantime just email me at [my username] at gmail and I can send you the basics.

  • Well, no tabs, but you get the idea. This should do the trick.
