Required Delivery Fields 2 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 0  
I am using this component in a small local restaurant and I'm pretty well versed in PHP and Javascript.

How can I disable the required fields in the delivery form?

I'd like to offer delivery, but give my customers the option to skip filling the form if delivery is not required.

When the delivery step is enabled, the form is automatically filled with billing data. So customers can skip this step completely and are not required to enter additional data.
If for some reason you want to disable the server side validation for required fields in the delivery form, you have to remove the code in the file: root/components/com_instantpaypal/views/checkout/view.html.php line 104 from:

Code:

if(strpos($r,'bill') !== FALSE || strpos($r,'user_email') !== FALSE) { $this->class->redirect(JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_instantpaypal&view=checkout&layout=billing'), JText::_('COM_INSTANTPAYPAL_CHECKOUT_COMPLETEFIELDS')); break; } elseif (strpos($r, 'del') !== FALSE && $this->cart->virtual === 0 && isset($this->options->params->deliverystep) && $this->options->params->deliverystep == '1') { $this->class->redirect(JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_instantpaypal&view=checkout&layout=delivery'), JText::_('COM_INSTANTPAYPAL_CHECKOUT_COMPLETEFIELDS')); break; }
to:
Code:

if(strpos($r,'bill') !== FALSE || strpos($r,'user_email') !== FALSE) { $this->class->redirect(JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_instantpaypal&view=checkout&layout=billing'), JText::_('COM_INSTANTPAYPAL_CHECKOUT_COMPLETEFIELDS')); break; }
I don't see any advantage or sense to modifying this

We deliver food locally (within 30 miles), but we also have people who pick up their orders at the restaurant.

Setting shipping required per item is impractical for these purposes.

The only solution I can think of, is...

  • set all items to shipping required

  • give customers option to skip filling shipping form if delivery not required

  • add delivery charge to shippings if delivery required



If anyone has a better idea, I'm open to suggestions, but this seems to be working for the moment.
