I'd like to know if is possible to have the order # showing up on the purchases page. The idea is that when someone buys concessions or tickets from our movie theater's website, their order # shows right on our website's purchases page http://www.venturecinema.net/account/purchases/ so that our staff can easily enter the order # on our system for tracking purposes.

The idea is to expedite this process avoiding having the client or our staff members to go in and get the order # from the purchase receipt sent by email.

Thanks,

Hi Eduardo,

Just to make sure I understand what you're needing - you say your staff will be viewing the purchases page.  The purchases page (yoururl.com/account/purchases) is specific to the customer who is logged in so that they can see just their purchases.  It doesn't show all the purchases made on your site.

They would have to be logged into the site as an admin, but you can find that in the site's dashboard, Exchange > Payments.  All the transactions are listed there with their order numbers.  

Let me know whether or not that's what you're needing.  

Thanks,

Elise

Thanks Elise, what I meant to say was that when a client buys something from their smartphone at the theater while waiting in line, they can show our staff members their order # directly from their purchase summary at http://www.venturecinema.net/account/purchases/ instead of needing to go to their email address and look for the email notification, and I'd like to know if is possible for me to add the neccesary code to make this possible, or even better, to make this availabe in a future version of iThemes Exchange.

Thanks

Elise, I still need help on this topic; I'd like to see if is there any way to manually add the necessary code to show the order # directly on the purchase summary at http://www.venturecinema.net/account/purchases/

The idea behind it, is that when someone buys any concession items from their smartphones, that the client can easily show their purchase summary and our staff members can quickly see the order # without having to log in.

Thanks

Hi Eduardo,

If you go into /lib/templates/content-confirmation/elements, you'll find order-number.php.  Copy this file then create the following directory in your theme:  /exchange/content-purchases/elements/.  Upload your copy of order-number.php there.  

In /lib/templates/content-purchases/loops/, you'll find transaction-info.php.  Copy this file and in your copy, add 'order-number' to the end of the array you find there.  So it would look like this:

<?php foreach ( it_exchange_get_template_part_elements( 'content_purchases', 'transaction_fields', array( 'transaction-date', 'transaction-status', 'transaction-total', 'order-number' ) ) as $detail ) : ?>

Then, in YourTheme/exchange/content-purchases/, add a file called loops and upload transaction-info.php.  This should display the order number below the other transaction information.

Give that a try and let us know how it goes.

Thanks,

Elise

Elise, thanks you very much, it works great! the only concern I have is that if these files will be lost every time I perform a theme or plugin update?

Hi Eduardo,

If you upload it into the exchange directory I had you create in your theme, it will not be overwritten when you update Exchange.  If you just edited the Exchange files directly, they would be overwritten when you updated Exchange.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.  

Thanks,

Elise

Hi Elise, today I found out that I lost the modification I made to show the ORDER NUMBER under the PURCHASES page when I updated my THEME to a newer version. Then I just simply re-do the modification and is working again, however, I'm wondering if the EXCHANGE developers could consider working on a permanent solution.

This information is critical for our staff members due that this way is fast and easy for them to verify and track the customer's purchases without having to have any printed invoice or needing to open their email and search for their paypal payment confirmation.I hope you consider adding this capability and the near future.

Thanks,
