This Week in devot:ee #13 - April 12, 2012

This week: Keeping calm and carrying on.
We're working on things that didn't make it out the door this week. How's that for transparency?
People Who Bought This...
One relates to top purchased items, and a method of suggesting items that you might be interested in purchasing based on what is in your cart. It's our version of "people who bought this also bought this." We hope it might either help you realize something is out there that you weren't aware of, or at the very least be a convenience feature for those of you who commonly add the same combos of add-ons to your cart. We might just save you some clicks. This feature should be out by this time next week.
We know you want them, we know you need them, and we're working on it. But, like most features on devot:ee, half the time we can't use add-ons as they come out of the box. Cartthrob (the shopping cart add-on we use on devot:ee) has a packages feature, but because we sell items for so many different developers, we can't use the native Cartthrob Packages without resorting to great trickery, so we've started putting our own thing together. There is no ETA, but we'd love to buy a 10-pack of Structure or a Playa/Matrix/Wygwam pack like anyone else.
