alterations to WordPress and WooCommerce
Specification of alterations to WordPress and WooCommerce
Site is hosted at Dreamhost.com where payment and shipping gateways and site templates are established.
In essence the product name must be altered from what is displayed on the product form and product catalog. That alias must be clearly visible as the product name to the customer in the cart, at checkout and passed to the payment processor.
Alias for product name
The product entry and edit forms allow for the entry of a product alias name
The product name alias does not display to the user and is a hidden field on product form.
The product name does display on the product form as static text on the template as to receive formatting applied by the theme for the product name.
Product/alias names are stored on disk as a delimited file or in database. There are less than 20 products but must accommodate more for future expansion.
Name-Alias table must be included as part of the normal WordPress backup. We prefer the table to be a file placed on the disk for ease of backup but leave final decision to the developer to ensure the best method.
The alias will be passed to the checkout form as the product name and will be visible to the customer as the product name in the cart, at checkout and passed to the payment processor.
