Description: Ubercart Limited Time Offer adds functionality to Ubercart to make a product available for a limited time in a variety of styles - time of expiration, time remaining, active countdown, and etc.
This module may be useful for those who want a simple, easily managed way of marketing products through their Ubercart site by offering products for a limited period of time. The module is themeable and allows for a number of customizations in general and per product class (product content type).
Little is required to use this module. Additional settings will appear when you create a product that allows you to make it a "timed product". That is, by checking the box under the Limited Time Offer settings fieldset and choosing a date, your product will automatically expire and become unavailable at the time you specified. Your product is not unpublished. It is still viewable.
* Date Pop-up
Install as usual, see http://drupal.org/node/70151 for further information. This module also includes full uninstall functionality. However, it is still a recommend best practice to backup your Drupal database first.
Help and Configuration
The modules comes with Help page content and a Read Me file. No configuration is required to use the module, although configuration settings are available to customize your use of the module - see LTO settings under Store Administration >> Configuration. To make an existing or new product a Limited Time Offer, simply choose the option you would like under the fieldset on the node add/edit page.
Versions: As much as possible, I will try to keep updated information on versions summarized here on the project page itself.
If you are customizing/overriding the JS file AND you are displaying a node through a module (i.e. such as displaying a node through Views) - you will want to use the development release as it fixes a file path issue that emerges in the specific scenario above. Other than that, the development release only contains documentation, description, label, and similar changes - no additional fixes or functionality differences.
Update on Versions
If you using or planning to use the development release, please note that the July 10, 2010 time stamp is not correct. No code has been committed that recently. This is a general Drupal issue affecting almost all modules on Drupal.org: http://drupal.org/node/850340
I try to devote as much as time as possible to community contributions, module maintenance, and additional development. But I also work independently to earn a living. If this module has helped meet your needs or you would like to see additional development, please consider making a small donation. Thank you!
Current maintainers: Matthew Winters (WebNewCastle) - is generally available for paid consulting and development.
