Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use this package without ezPayPal?

Not in the current form. A future version that can work independently of ezPayPal will be released soon.

How do I create a new report?

The ezReports module is written with extensibility in mind. With a bit of PHP knowledge, it is child's play to add another report. Follow these steps to make your own report.

  1. Make a copy of a look at the sample report chart-product.php in the module folder (ezPayPal/pro/ezreports).
  2. Rename it to chart-<something>.php. Let's say you call it chart-myreport.php.
  3. Edit chart-myreport.php and change the report name near the top of the file (line 9 in the current version.)
  4. In the data section (after if (isset($_GET['data']))), define your own data.
  5. Save and upload the modified chart-myreport.php to your server, to the same location as chart-product.php.
  6. Your report is ready and deployed, and will appear in the drop down menu when you start the reporting engine.
