Supported OpenCart Versions:

What does it do:
This vQmod automatically adds other products from the same category into the related products tab.
For example, if you are looking at Nikon Camera and in the same Cameras category you have a Sony, Canon, etc.
The related products tab will randomly display those other products.
No Configuration. Just plug-n-play.
* vQmod only. No files to edit or overwrite
* Plug-n-Play. Just drop it in and it does the work for you
* It adds to your existing related products. If you manually link 2 other products, it will fill the rest of the available slots with random products from the same category
* Configurable in the xml file.
* Is NOT theme dependent
* Automatically omits the current product from being related
* Should not affect other product mods as it is mostly standalone code.
OpenCart has an option that lets you create brands and assign them to your products, but that’s as far as it goes. If you ever ordered a salad in a restaurant, you may have asked what the house dressing is or perhaps your local pub has a house brand on tap as well?
Everyone knows there is always a house brand to be had that can be less expensive most time since it’s also known as a generic or no name brand.
Don’t just resell products, sell your own house brand products!
Promote your own house brand in Open Cart with the House Brand Module.
The House Brand Module works exactly like the Featured Module.
Randomize / Shuffle products on every page load (this method does not make extra calls to the database. It loads many products at once and then shuffles them before being displayed).
Products get centered inside the module for better styling.
Add as many products (set limit) as you wish to have displayed.
Set the width and height of the image.
Add the module to any layout.
Choose the position of the module (Content Top or Bottom and Column Left or Right).
Upload and go — requires no modification to core files or the database.
Compatible with almost any custom theme.
Create an unlimited number of modules all over your site.
Send contents of folder to OpenCart installation. Don’t worry, no files are overwritten.
Admin, Extensions, Modules – Click Install next to House Brand.
Click next to House Brand.
Choose which products will be displayed in your module by using Autocomplete.
Click the button on the bottom right hand side.
Works like other modules on the site such as Featured.

This mod generates and uses a random Order Number and Invoice number, that is related to the Order ID, so that clients or competition will never know exactly how many orders your store has processed!
When you search in admin, you can search by order ID or by order No, which is the random generated number and it will show the same results.
On the front-end, the user only sees the new generated number for Order and Invoice, and not the real order ID or real Invoice ID.
The real sequential Invoice ID is kept for accountant reasons. The invoice random number displayed to customer is a string that works like this: invoice prefix + order random no + generated sequential number, for example: on order 80728 invoice is INV-2012-00807281
This module is under development.
1) Please back-up your database!
2) Please run the SQL queries located at the beginning of the XML file, between comments.
You have to replace the table prefix 'oc_' with your own database prefix.
3) After that you can install the mod, as the columns have to already exist in the database.
