    Hi,

    I've set up gift certificate templates that allow people to offer Sewing lessons.

    These same sewing lessons are available for sale in our virtuemart shop.


    Problem is that i see gift certificates that have been issued when someone has actually purchased the sewing lesson product.

    It could be that i've got the setup backwards. Would it help if you get an access to the site ?

    Hi,

    Sounds like you set up the sewing lesson product as a gift certificate.  If you find it on this screen published, then yes that is what happened: awocoupon->tools->gift certificate products

    Now what are you trying to do instead?

    OK.Yes, i'd done it backwards...

    10 extra Stupid points for me.

    Thanks for pointing out the very obvious. Haven't tested it but it makes sense now.

    Side question,

    on the IncludeProducts/Categories/etc section...

    Are Parent/unpublished products and/or categories usable in these filters?

    I have setup quite a lot of template products and 'Types' categories to set up virtuemart just how i need it. Are these unpublished products & categories, and parent products usable as filters?

    i.e. If i set the unpublished template 10 lessons product as the only thing that can be bought with a specific gift certificate, can all its published children be purchased with the certificate ?

    For virtuemart, just the first level.  So if you have this structure:

     - A
         + B child of A
         + C child of A
               - D child of C
         + E child of A

    And you set up a coupon for product A, the coupon would work on A, B, C, E.

    cool thanks.
    No matter is the products are published or not, the parent ones (-A in your example.. ?)

    Yes, the parent product being published does not matter.
