Overview of registering new routes in nopCommerce

Categories: nopCommerce

ASP.NET routing enables you to use URLs that do not have to map to specific files in a Web site. Because the URL does not have to map to a file, you can use URLs that are descriptive of the user's action and therefore are more easily understood by users.The ASP.NET MVC framework and ASP.NET Dynamic Data extend routing to provide features that are used only in MVC applications and in Dynamic Data applications. You can find more information here.

You can also look into this example that explains the ASP.NET routing. The ASP.NET Routing module is responsible for mapping incoming browser requests to particular MVC controller actions.

nopCommerce follows the IRouteProvider interface which is used for route registration during application start-up. All core routes are registered in the RouteProvider class located in the Nop.Web project.

Categories: nopCommerce

There are times when store owners would like the customers to receive emails from different email addresses. nopCommerce offers various message templates that are sent automatically based on various actions on the store site for example:

- Customer gets an email notification after placing an order (it is a message template)
- Item shipped notification (it is a message template)
- Welcome email that a customer receives after creating an account / registration (it is a message template)
- Password recovery email if any user / customer forget his/her password (it is a message template)

All these emails are basically common message templates that are saved in the database and they are being used repeatedly for different customers (simply using their account information).

Overview of type property for specification attributes in nopCommerce

Categories: nopCommerce

Until now, the functionality of adding specification attributes for any product only allowed store owners to display attribute values as simple plain text. Now, with the release of new nopCommerce 3.5 version, a store owner can easily add specification attributes values in several types like:

(Options)

- Custom text

- HTML text

-Hyperlink



nopCommerce product specification attributes



It would be very useful to have a "type" property that would define the way the value will be displayed in the product detail: text (default), link, download, or HTML text. Thus it will give a lot of flexibility for attaching user manuals, brochures, (example in "folleto" tab) , specification tables, Excel sheets, etc. or making links or displaying specifications with more flexibility.



P.S. Note that link, color square, image, etc can be supported by "HTML text" type. So there's no need to add support for all of them
