I am looking for a way to alter the related products functionality to relate one category of products with another. For example:
I have 4 categories: Spoons, Cups, Bowls, Straws. When you select a product in spoons, I want the related products to only display things from the Bowls Categories. And when you select Cups I want only items from Straws to show.
I have tried using tags, but I have tens of thousands of products to go through and that would be a nightmare. I have also tried other plugins including WP Related Items (WRI) by WebshopLogic but it does not offer this feature.
ANY help on how to about tackling this issue is greatly appreciated.
I probably have to write my own plugin to do this but I dont have a lot of experience doing that.
