Obsolete Product Redirect for AbleCommerce 9
Keep products active for internal searches and external search engines, but let the customer know where to find the current product.
Have you wanted to keep old products on your site because they deliver search engine traffic? This plugin keeps old products active in search engines while directing the customer to the newer product. Within the obsolete product, this plugin adds displays an icon and a hypertext link to the new product.
If an obsolete product is added to the basket, it is automatically replaced with the newer product. A text message is displayed over the basket telling the customer that the new product has been added to the basket.
Easy to administer... Entering the SKU in the 'supercede' field makes a link to the new product visible in the obsolete product's page. The merchant can either keep the product visibility 'public', which includes the product in navigation. Or, the visibility can be set to 'hidden', which removes the product from your site's navigation, but still allows prospective customers to click through to the page from search engines.
