Hi.

I guess that the company, who developed you site, was using existing s-shop component for Joomla (otherwise they would not tell you that they should add weight and size). What's bad with such components - they can't be easily customized and most probably your developers are right (they know this system better).

But what you can do is to add size and weight to all items equal to the same value (say 1), just don't show dimensions and weights on a web, but include shipping cost. Ask your developers is it possible (I guess this can be done with less efforts).

Regards,
Arty

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
