I'd like to be able to show the VIN number on the details page. I do see the field in the db, but I'm at a loss as to how to get this to show.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Currently, the VIN is just used for internal administration purposes since most dealers do not want to show the registration details.

The easiest fix would be to mention the VIN in the "more information" field. If that's not practical, please contact us with your requirements (e.g. where/when you'd want it to appear) and we will get back to you with a custom-coding quotation.

I was hoping to be able to use the vin field, and at the end of the more info field I would have a url like
mysite.com/index.php?vin=|VIN|
and the link would dynamically be updated when the item details is shown.

Make sense?

I of course could do this manually, but I was hoping that this could be automated.

It should be possible to automate it, but it'd require a little recoding to ensure the VIN is available to client.js and used in the appropriate place. Please contact us directly with the requirements and I'm sure we can do it for you.
