Advanced Ordernumbers for VirtueMart

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Plugin development ceased, all plugins made available freely (GPL)

With great sadness we have to announce that we are ceasing development of all our VirtueMart, WooCommerce and Joomla plugins. Effective immediately, all our plugins -- even those that were paid downloads -- are made available for free from our homepage (GPL license still applies), but we cannot and will not provide any support anymore.

It has been a great pleasure to be part of the thriving development communities of VirtueMart as well as WooCommerce. However, during the last year it became painstakingly clear that in addition to a full-time job, a young family and several other time-consuming hobbies at professional level (like being a professional singer) the plugin development and the support that it requires is not sustainable and is taking its toll. It has been an honor, but it is now time to say good bye!

Numerical Order number 23 Dec 2016 11:43 #1

Hi there,

Would it be possible to get a 5 digit numerical in sequence? If it could begin with 24421 then 24422, 24423 etc. it would fulfil my requirement.
Is it possible to do that?

Thank you,

Dear Django,
Yes, you can easily use a 5-digit numerical sequence for your order numbers, beginning with 24421. The corresponding number format would be:
(I.e. five # indicating the number of digits and the initial value after the colon).

Alternatively, since your initial value already has five digits (ie. you don't need any leading zeroes), you can also simply use the format
make a test order (which will create the counter) and then manually change the counter in the plugin configuration to 24420 (the value of the PREVIOUS order, so that the next number will be 24421).

Best regards,

PS: You can try it out yourself at our demo installation at demo.open-tools.net/
