YAK - Yet Another (shopping) Kart (9 posts)

    YAK is a simple shopping cart allowing a blog post to be associated with a product, adding a buy button to such posts, and providing a page for displaying orders, entering address details, confirmation, etc.

    At the moment there's no integration with a payment merchant (like PayPal), but that will (eventually) be added.

    The info page for YAK can be found at: yak.sourceforge.net

    Update: PayPal is now supported (although it's still a little experimental).

    Feedback welcome, particularly features you'd like to see added...

    sounds pretty cool, though I haven't looked too deeply.

    Note that my CG-QuickPHP plugin would also work very well in combination with YAK, given the function calls look to mostly be 'template tags', simple one-shot functions.

    Alternately, a custom YAK page/post template would work well. I've started learning how to have a plugin substitute a different template on the fly...

    Oh, another idea just struck me -- it'd be good to put 'products' into a particular category (and subcats), as it'll give you a filter so they don't show up as normal posts, and it'll give you the ability to use a category template for viewing products 'differently' than blog posts...

    (having spent a lot of time on CG-Amazon, and recent work on enhancements, I think about this stuff a lot!)

    Just a quick announcement:

    The latest version of YAK (0.7) now includes support for downloadable content (in experimental form). It can be downloaded from here

    This may seem like a silly question, but does it support multiple products on a page? I have a list of products, and I'd like to add a button for each one.

    This sounds interesting.

    I might actually get around to having a play with it some time.

    Still, keep up the good work :)

    Best,

    Josef.

    To Jaxia:

    You associate a post with a product (so you could have detailed info about the product on the post) -- so there's no reason why you couldn't have links to each of those posts/products on a single page.
    You can also set up a product list page, which automatically lists all the products you have available.
