    I've added "spec_min" to the product template there is a (perch) "min_qty" in the variants template. As all the variants will have the same min_qty I thought setting for the product would mean that I wouldn't have to swap it out depending on which variant was selected.

    I'm pretty new to this side of perch so please excuse the dumb questions… but when you say print out the array, how do I do that?

    So I have…

    Should I now be able to use <perch:content id="spec_min"> to display the value of "spec_min" within the namespace "productvalues" or have I misunderstood. Also when I use…

    1. <?php print_r(PerchSystem::get_vars()); ?>

    To see if the value of "spec_min" has been set, nothing is displayed. I was using this to see if the variable was being set

    How do you use getElementById in javascript with ids that get appended by a perch identifier?

    E.g in "shop's" cart the product quantity input field gets appended with a unique identifier (number) for the product .

    1. <perch:input id="qty:<perch:cartitem id="identifier" />" min="" value="<perch:cartitem id="quantity"/>" type="number">

    For processing purposes, the units of qty are CM (Centimetres) but I need to show the qty to the user in M (metres), so I need to apply a conversion to the value of this input (which will be hidden) and display the result in another input (qty_m - which will need to be paired with qty by sharing that same identifier). To do the conversion I was hoping to get the value of qty by using getElementById however the ID isn't qty it actually be qty:# (unique to each cart item)

    I have three product options that a user can buy/select; sample, a returnable sample and a length of fabric. If the user selects to buy a length of fabric they can enter the length required in a input field next to the radio button, this is not a perch generated input field just a standard hand-coded one. I'd like to fill the "placeholder=" and "min=" attributes with the value of the minimum order quantity for the product. This value is available in the perch:shop namespace but when I use <perch:shop id="spec_min"> nothing is inserted. Any thoughts as to what I'm doing wrong or is this something that simply can't be done?

    I have some product samples in Shop that retail at £0.75 and shipping is free £0.00. Registered trade customers can order totally free samples. In the admin Trade customers are assigned a tag "trade" and this is used to apply trade pricing. The problem is that in the cart retail customers see shipping, correctly, as £0.00 however for trade customers Shipping is blank.

    Any thoughts as to why this is occurring would be much appreciated.

    Anyone know how to add custom css to the embedded strip form, I'd like to make the imput fields match the look and feel of the other forms on the site.

    Within the form tags of the embedded form there is a set of empty <style> tags how can I populate this with my custom styles? Any thoughts much appreciated.

    Hi Byron Fitzgerald,

    Having a go at implementing you're stripe solution. I think I've got it all setup but when I click the payment button nothing happens. I suspect that i've not got the js hooked up correctly. When I click the button is the card details form meant to pop up like the stripe form?

    Time is running out!
    I received notification from Stripe the other day that full enforcement of SCA will begin on 31 December. Is there going to be a first party fix for this? I'll willingly go down the @Byron Fitzgerald (Stripe Update for Shop) open-source solution, so my client can still trade from the 31st December onwards, but I would like to know if this is going to be addressed by the Perch Team first as I believe Byron's solution involves making changes to core files.

    A timely response would be much appreciated.

    is there a better way to write the following (seems kind of clunky)?

    1. <perch:if id="sku" match="contains" value="-S-">
    2. <perch:if id="imageVariant" match="contains" value="-or">
    3. <li>
    4. <a href="oranges/<perch:variant id="slug" type="slug">"><img src="<perch:variant id="imageVariant" type="text">" loading="lazy" alt="Fabric swatch: <perch:shop id="title">"/><span><perch:variant id="title" type="text"></span><span class="colour"><perch:variant id="colorVariant" type="text"></span></a>
    5. </li>
    6. </perch:if>
    7. </perch:if>

    You could potentially create a Perch template to write/export content in the format that you want?

    Why? You can use a template to output the content in the format you need, then use something like curl or wget to request the file and save it to disk.

    Could either of you elaborate on how this is done, I've just been asked by a client if its possible to output sales figures from shop.

    Drew that's sounds positive …the frustration comes from not knowing what the future holds, leaving developers and designers with no option but to look for alternative solutions, all of which take time to evaluate and test. All I and others ask is that you keep us informed as to where we stand going forward in a more regular and timely fashion.

    After a temporary blip … when long standing compatibility issues where fixed (much appreciated) … its reassuring to know that normal service has now resumed i.e. total lack of communication from the perch team - Its great to see "customer service" (read contempt for users) being taken to new levels - Cheers!
