$59.00 is reasonable, but I'm not sure they have what I'm looking for.
What I need is this, Break Designs Attribute Manager: http://demo2.breakdesigns.net/index.php ... egory_id=1
This would be perfect, if I knew 100% that it would work with Joomla 2.5 and Virtuemart 1.2. It's cheap, about 17.00 - 18.00 US, but if it doesn't work then I'm just giving away the money. I've e-mailed them and I'm waiting to hear back. I wish i could test it, and if it worked I would pay them. No option for that.
They have a more expensive extension named Product Builder, which does work with old and new Joomla, but it does not do what I need done by itself. It's about $45.00 us. There's 1 demo where it's used with Attribute Manager...but all I really need is Attribute Manager.
There's an extension builder that goes by VMLab I found at the Virtuemart forum. He has an Attribute Manager. I e-mailed him last night. He's working on something now for Virtuemart 1.2...no time frame. About the same price as the Break Designs version. No website, he e-mails you the extension and if it works you pay him. Sounds what I'm looking for, if the graphics part works.
If you look at the Break Designs Demo link, what my friend wants is an add to cart that will have a picture to the side of the golf club, and the picture changes as you make selections...The picture is a picture of a driver. if you select a white club head that part of the picture changes, or if you select an Aldila RIP Phenom the shaft in the picture changes, if you select a Lamkin 3Gen grip the grip on the club changes.
That's what the add to cart option at this website does, and it where my friend got the idea: http://hotrodputter.com/order_now.aspx
I made up my mind last night, I'm loading inventory on his site with 2.5 and virtuemart 1.2. If no one has an extension right now with this setup, I will convince him to use it without it for now. Personally I like Virtuemart, and it;'s add to cart system is fine. So you don't have the graphics he wants standard. Safety is better than flash. I'll build it standard for now, and add an extension when one is available. Maybe I haven't heard from Break because it's just not ready for Virtuemart 1.2. Maybe VM Lab will be the one to do it?
Any other suggestions please let me know. I really appreciate all the advice.
