Some problems with customer selection and product scope when creating coupons.

    Dear Sirs

    we are currently using Awo coupon pro on Joomla 1.5.26 with VM 1.19

    We offer pre-orders (exact same as regulard confirmed orders) on our site ( and want to be able to offer a general discount coupon to the people who pre-ordered some good X If the shipment date announced slips - all of this has to be done manually.

    We therefore proceeded with the creation of a coupon (Gift Certificates do not allow for customer restriction we understand) offering a discount on all our goods to a select group of users.

    Two problems:

    1. How do we select the whole store (without selecting all goods individually) - minor issue

    2. Many of the people who ordered are not in the customer list, and the list is odd (a mixture of usernames and emails)

    2 is a serious issue - could you please advise asap? We can send you temporary admin access details if necessary

    1) If you do not select any products or categories, etc, it is the same as selecting everything
    2) The customer list is pulling the username of joomla users. The customer would have to be registered in order to appear on the list. The username is being displayed. If you are seeing emails, then the user using the username as an email or you have some type of plugin that is forcing the username as an email. You can see the logic that pulls the customers here:
    www/administrator/components/com_awocoupon/controller.php, around line 1201 should be something like this:
    case 'user':
    $sql 'SELECT id,username as label FROM #__users ORDER BY username,id';

    This is the information that is displayed when you select the 'view all' button for customers.
