Link products together in Zencart admin

This is the situation

I have studio photo backgrounds. Each studio background comes in 2,72m. But i want to also offer the same backgrounds with a size that it not specified but that customers choose by himself.

This means that in admin where the studio backgrounds on 2,72m are in folder [Backgrounds], i want to create another folder (for example called [Variable background sizes]) where the same backgrounds are shown but the products title and descriptions are different. If a customer buys one or more white background, no matter from which category, the qty is reduced from both categories automatically.

The built allready module which comes with zen cart only allows you to link products together, but if you update a text in one of the products, the other linked product also changes with the same text. This is what i want to prevent.

Also, if two products are linked with each other and i want to edit the text for one of theme, i want to have a check button which asks if i want to make the edit only in where i am editing or both linked products.

Scenario is as follows:

1. I go to Admin->Products->Studio Background

2. The list of products are shown for example:

White background [url removed, login to view]

Blue background [url removed, login to view]

3. I go one folder level up and create another folder called: Background variable sizes. Now i have both [StudioBackground]


[Background variable sizes]

4. I go back to catalog [StudioBackground]. I click on the copy link button for White background 2.74m. It asks me where i want to copy and link the product to. I choose the folder : [Background variable sizes] and click on "Copy and link".

5. Now the product "White background 2.74" is shown in both folders. I change the title and the product description in the new linked product (White background [url removed, login to view]) which now is in [Background variable sizes].

6. I dont check the button: "Do update in both places".

7. I click update and now i have two same products, but different texts. Also the two products which are linked can have different weight, prices etc

8. A customer buys from the folder [Background variable sizes]. Both places are reduced with the qty that the customers buy.

If i want to delete in one place, the link first must be deleted. Then i can delete a product without affecting the other one.

This link module must not affect the allready built in module. It must be seperate.

Full Payment will be done after end project. Also the feedback to you will be after i have tested it out.

I have some other features that i want to add in also. So i hope for a friendly relationship and honest one. If we become friends, then you can get bigger projects also.

Good communication skills are important. Also talking on skype will be faster communication, but it is not a demand.

I need someone who is familiar with zen cart.

I have attached a file showing the button which i needed.
