Shipping by Rules for VirtueMart

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Plugin development ceased, all plugins made available freely (GPL)

With great sadness we have to announce that we are ceasing development of all our VirtueMart, WooCommerce and Joomla plugins. Effective immediately, all our plugins -- even those that were paid downloads -- are made available for free from our homepage (GPL license still applies), but we cannot and will not provide any support anymore.

It has been a great pleasure to be part of the thriving development communities of VirtueMart as well as WooCommerce. However, during the last year it became painstakingly clear that in addition to a full-time job, a young family and several other time-consuming hobbies at professional level (like being a professional singer) the plugin development and the support that it requires is not sustainable and is taking its toll. It has been an honor, but it is now time to say good bye!

Translation of rules and exclusion of specific... 06 Nov 2013 15:55 #1

I have two questions regarding VM2 Shipping by Rules, Version 3.3

My installation is Joomla 2.5.14 and VM 2.0.24

Is it possible to contain translation constants inside the rules? For example, instead of:
Name=Rule 1; 10000<=ZIP<19999; Shipping=4.5

to enter
Name=COM_VIRTUEMART_RULE_1; 10000<=ZIP<19999; Shipping=4.5


COM_VIRTUEMART_RULE_1="Rule 1" defined within a language file.

Furthermore, is it possible to exclude specific products from the shipping calculation through the plugin?

Thank you!

Thanks for the suggestion about translatable rule names. They are currently not translated, but I have put it on my TODO list for future releases.

Regarding the exclusion: Do you mean to exclude certain products in the sense that the shipping cost should be calculated as if the product wasn't in the cart? Or do you mean that if a certain product is in the cart, then the plugin should not allow any shipping at all?

The first is not possible, my plugin always takes the whole cart and calculates all cart attributes (amount, weight, etc.) from all articles in the cart without excluding anything. The second is possible with the advanced plugin by a rule part
"your-excluding-SKU" in SKUs
