SP Promoted Entries ComponentModulePluginExtension Specific Addon

Promote entries to the top of the Catalog!

"XTDir Promoted Entries allows to promote specific entries according to a priority (order)."

A powerful concept to feature entries, and organize an "Advertising Catalog". (Paypal Paid Orders are supported)

In a nutshell
--------------

The business objective is to manage the catalog to advertise entries as ads, but keeping a "Consistent Directory Structure". Entries are promoted according to Promotions.

Promotions can have a section or category scope; and there are three types of promotions.

* Manual Promotion, you can define a default value for these entries. E.g. order number 888. You can also manually assign an ordering to specific entries. E.g Neo Electronics, order number 7.

* Dynamic Promotion, the ordering is assigned to entries that have a specific value in a field. E.g. field_premium=option_premium.

* Paid Promotion, integrated with SobiPro Paid Fields, you can configure Paypal Notifications (IPN) to receive the payment event and activate the entry with a specific ordering. E.g. Neo Electronics paid for a logo, order number 555; the entry is marked as paid promoted.

-- Advertising Algorithm

The App has several ways to show the results list. The Ordering defines the order of the entries shown and it's determined according Promotions.

Promotions can have a section or category scope; and there are three types of promotions.

---- Manual Promotion, you can define a default value for these entries. E.g. order number 888. You can also manually assign an ordering to specific entries. E.g Neo Electronics, order number 7.

---- Dynamic Promotion, the ordering is assigned to entries that have a specific value in a field. E.g. field_premium=option_premium.

---- Paid Promotion, integrated with SobiPro Paid Fields, you can configure Paypal Notifications (IPN) to receive the payment event and activate the entry with a specific ordering. E.g. Neo Electronics paid for a logo, order number 555; the entry is marked as paid promoted.

---- Multi-armed bandit Algorithm
Promoted entries can be sorted by Multi-armed bandit (Top 10% Random, 90% ordered by Hits). The rest of entries are shown in random order. The same algorithm used by Google Adwords.

This addon dont do what he says, if you have a category with multiples pages,it wont promote the entry to first page,will just promote in the page that the entry is showed
Owner's reply

The product features are based on SobiPro available API (no change on core files).

In this case, the opportunity to change the entries list is in every page, but we can't change the global list of results.

We are working on a new version to allow multi-level priorities. We are going to re-check if it's possible to change the global list of results.
