PrestaPricing 7.1 & 7.2 : faster, support of warehouses, CKEditor...

Published : 10/21/2016 08:29:22
Categories : Sitolog news Rss feed

Note : now available version 7.2, bringing in addition the compatibility with PrestaShop 1.7.

Power and speed

As we did with PrestaCategories about 6 months ago, the majority of the most complex scripts of PrestaPricing have been rewritten to accelerate its execution time.

The launching phase :

If with the small bases of less than 500 categories this step was painless, those managing sites of 5000 to 50000 famillies had to wait several minutes for the entire tree to be read and displayed. Now only the first level of the tree is loaded at launch, the other levels are loaded on the fly when the needed.

But even on very small databases, you will enjoy the comfort of running categories refresh in seconds.

Test scale, connecting on a site of 40,000 categories:

Temps de lancement

The mode of operation for this launch speed and all other accelerations described below is called "progressive loading".

Is chosen at the time of connection and can be changed from the main interface at any time:

Check "Select reading mode" to open this window and select this new method or the old one (preserved for old versions of PrestaShop 1.3):

We also advise you to turn on "Do not ask again..."

Once connected, you can switch from one mode to another (it is recommended to stay in the new mode as much as possible):

Choix du mode de chargement progressif depuis le panneau de controle

Some of the others features running 10 to 100 faster :

-Creation and deletion of products

ex : bulk creation of 10 products in 80 categories (800 new products) : 0.7 s instead of 1min 30 s with v7.0.

-Reading of accessoires.

-More globally all features acting on a large number of products in one single operation.

New HTML editor (CKEditor)

As for PrestaCatégories 6.1, the internal HTML editor has been replaced by the very popular CKEditor :

CKEditor dans PrestaPricing

You can switch at any time between thre version of CKEditor (basic, standard, complete). You can even install your own customized version.
Bonus : it is capable of reading and using the CSS classes of your PrestaShop template. A 100% WYSIWYG editor.

More than one hundred of available (most are free) pluggins on the site of CKEditor. Ex : advanced bulk images upload pluggins.

For more information on customization possibilities, please consult the online help of CKEditor at .

Note : the three versions of CKEditor are coming with Sitolog Application Connect from version 7.2.c (installed automatically in the same directory on your server).

The most demanded : management of the warehouses and stock movements (PRO version only)

If you ever tried the advanced stock management mode in PrestaShop, you already know that the idea was promosing but the implementation really bad and buggy, to a point it is not usable. So many of you have asked Sitolog to think and implement in PrestaPricing an interface to managed quantities in warehouses.

Was not easy, but after many months of design and coding, we are pleased to announced that you'll now be able to managed products-warehouses associations and quantities movement in bulk via PrestaPricing.

The setting :

Configuration du mode de gestion des stocks avancés


-Turning on or off globally the advanced stock management mode. With a major difference with doing it in the back office : turning the mode off is not resetting to 0 all quantities, you are not loosing your inventory.

-Selection of the warehouses to display and work on. Either all of them, only those of the shop or only one.

-Choice of the period used to compute the quantity sold, used to compute the coverage (number of days before facing out of stock situation)

-Choice of the quantity type (reel, available, usable) used to compute the coverage.

-Cells in the coverage colums are color coded/ REd if the number of remaining days reach a limit that you can define youself.

New columns to display and edit warehouses associations and quantities :

Choix des colonnes de gestion des stocks avancé

All fields used and dispaly in the back office warehouse tabs are included in PrestaPricing. With major difference : they are all present in the same table to make the work much more easy and intuitive.

You can bulk associate product and combinations to warehouses, configure they management mode (manual or automatic), their location and indeed their quantities (physical and usable for orders).

It also provides useful informations like the real, available, back order quantities and the stock coverage, the stock valorisation, the weighted average price...

Affichage et traitements des stocks avancés dans les entrepôts

Stock movements :

A right clic in any of the warehouses quantities colums, open the stock movement windows. It acts on all the selected lines in the products or combinations tables.

You can increment stock, decrease it (partially or completly), make transfers (partially or completly) between warehouses :

Mouvements de stock

When adding stock, the wholesale price can be determined automatically, using the same than for the previous adding, or the price defined for the default supplier of the product or any other supplier, the basic wholesale price, a defined price...

When the selected price is not yet defined and/or null, the program can automatically pick up the next one in the option list.

On top of this you can apply a discount rate.

The tool is capable to automatically convert the manual quantities or items into physical stock in warehouses (turning on the advanced mode on products in the warehouse with PrestaShop back office is reseting all quantities to 0).

You can easily convert or transfer physical quantities to usable quantities in the same or another warehouse.

Current limits (V beta 7.1) :

-Quantity removal is possible only in WA type of warehouses (not in LIFO and FIFO type of warehouses).

-The CSV/XLS import is not yet compatible with the advanced stock management mode.

New "Suppliers" tab and table

Since stocks advanced management uses the concept of supplier prices, and as a product can have multiple suppliers, it had become necessary to also provide an interface to make mass-associations between product and suppliers and to choose for a batch the default provider. Alos required to to easily create and modify prices, currencies and supplierreferences on product and / or variations:

Table d'association des produits aux fournisseurs

Note that MagicEdit tool is available in the supplier reference column (for example to generate series of references).

It is also available in the supplier price column, allowing for example to copy the wholesale price column into the supplier price column.

Notice the small button to copy with one click hundreds of product's reference and / or prices into their combinations. Casually, it's another hundreds of hours saved.

New richer interface for bulk adding of new products

Now allows you to pre-fill the names and references with a pre-defined value (concatenation with the name of the category or brand), prices and all the important parameters (activation, quantity, weight, manufacturer, default supplier, status , online, on sale, taxes, ...). Another huge time saving when filling your articles catalog:

Ajout d'un lôt de produits

Many other new features. Here are the main ones:


The "Warehouse associate" column of the table of products in three States (Yes, no and partially). Partially indicating that some of its combinations are associated with the warehouse, without being associated to the current shop
The addition of specific price does not refresh automatically table of combinations in order to keep the selection of common lines and to chain generations. Instead the refresh button flashes (but only if necessary, IE if the table contains columns relate to the price discounts).
The size of the fields of the pre-filters from the tables is no longer limited in number of characters (instead of 1024)
The HTML editor is replaced by the famous CKEditor. True WYSIIWYG. Reading the site CSS files. Choice of the version of the HTML editor and its plugins.
PHP 7.0 support
The movement of stock allows to transfer the amounts managed manually, in stock in warehouses (while Prestashop strives to 0 by default when it goes into advanced management mode).
Table of suppliers, a new button to copy data from the product to its declinations (reference provider, provider purchase price, currency) (bulk: several products, suppliers and combinations with one click).
Bulk stock movements (add, remove, and transfer of the stock). Option to remove all or transfer all stock.
New tab and table to associate products and declinations to suppliers, edit of the supplier reference for each linked supplier, the price of purchase per supplier, choice of currency, choice of the default provider.

The change of the default provider in the product table, creates a line for each of the variations in the product suppliers table if it does not exist
Change of the provider by default via the import, create a line for each of the variations in the product_supplier table if it does not exist (to be consistent with the behavior of the back office of PS)
Support of FTPES (explicit TLS) connections on servers without authentication (encryption only) or certificate invalid.
Removal of stock in warehouses, of deleted combinations when the product is no longer in advanced mode of managing stocks.
In all tables, by default search tool is now a "contains" search instead of a "start by" search.

Support of tables memorizing the information of stock movements for products for which the quantities are managed in the warehouse. Add a line for each change of stock in warehouses.

Two new items managed by the xls/csv import: supplier price and its currency.
The transfer of inventory between warehouses also works to and from a same warehouse, to convert the stock available for sale in stock not available and vice versa.

Bulk adding of stock of products or combinations in warehouse.
Buk transfer of stock of products or combinations between warehouses. With the possibility to transfer all or a portion of it. With option to include or not the quantities available for sale. With the possibility of select how much will be available for sale in the warehouse of destination.   Note: can transfert out only from warehouses of type WA.
Detecting the presence of CKEditor on the server
When adding stock in mass (products or combinations in the warehouses), you have a great choices for the automatic or manual selection of the purchase price.

In such a case, although the product has no variation in this shop, it is not possible to change its quantity.
The language used for the mapping is now defined in step 2 (instead of using the language chosen in the control panel of the main window).   When you change language in step 2, the existing values of attributes and features list is rebuilt.
