appending info to product when added to cart (4 posts)

    Hi, I have a page with a bunch of photos on it.

    I want the person to be able to purchase products (let's say a t-shirt) with any of their photos. I need this to be scalable so I can't create hard coded products. What I've done is grab some identifying info from each photo and use it in a query string as it progresses through the site.

    So starting at the products page each photo has a code.

    From there if the person picks a photo (#123) it goes to a product page with many products, t-shirts, keychains, etc., this MyProducts page is the same for all photos except it has the query string attached - http://mysite.com/myproducts/?code=123 which tells me what photo the person is shopping with.

    If the person wants to buy a t-shirt, clicking on the t-shirt image will go to the t-shirt page with the addition of the query appended to the url - http://mysite.com/shop/t-shirts/?code=123

    So far so good.

    Now if they add a t-shirt to the cart I need the product to be called T-Shirt-(123)

    How do I take my identifier and add it to the product name when added to the cart?

    Thanks for any help.

    I'm trying to use a filter action to add this info to the product_id

    In my custom plug-in I have the following

    /*ADD QUERY STRING TO PRODUCT WHNE PLACED IN CART */
    add_filter ('woocommerce_product_title' , 'nfp_add_id_to_product');
    
    function nfp_add_id_to_product(){
        $code = substr($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'],5,12);
        $realcode = str_replace(array('-0', '-1'),array('-A', '-B'), $code);
        $product_id =   $realcode . '&' . $product_id ;
        return $product_id;
    
    }

    But all that gets passed to the cart is &, so I'm guessing the filter happens after we leave the page and cant' grab the query string.

    Any ideas of what I could try.

    I also tried an add_to_cart action but I don't feel like that is going to be completely useful.

    Thanks.

    I've confirmed that the $realcode is correct (12345-A)

    function nfp_add_id_to_product($title){
        $code = substr($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'],5,12);
        $realcode = str_replace(array('-0', '-1'),array('-A', '-B'), $code);
        $title =   $title . '-' . $realcode ;
        return $title;
    
    }

    Seems like this should change the title of the product throughout - for instance "Keychain" should now become "Keychain-12345-A" but it isn't doing anything.

    add_filter ('woocommerce_product_title' , 'nfp_add_id_to_product');
    
    function nfp_add_id_to_product($title){
        $code = substr($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'],5,12);
        $filename = str_replace(array('-0', '-1'),array('-A', '-B'), $code);
        $title =  $title . ' - ' . $filename ;
        return $title;
    }

    This will add the string to the product name on the product page.
    It is called Keychain - 012345, hooray
    Except it doesn't carry through to the cart boohoo

    I'm working on this action hook also, but so far I can't get it do anything . . . I'm not sure what the variable should be. If anyone has any clue I'd really appreciate your input.

    add_action( 'woocommerce_.$product->product_type._add_to_cart' , 'add_filename' );
    
    function add_filename($product_type) {
    	$code = substr($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'],5,12);
    	$filename = str_replace(array('-0', '-1'),array('-A', '-B'), $code);
        $product_type = $product_type . ' - ' . $filename;
         return $product_type;
    }
