I am trying to set up ubercart (drupal 7).
We sell a number of products including Pamphlets. I have defined a product kit for a group of pamphlets.
 I have, of course defined taxonomy terms in the catalog vocabulary both for pamphlets and also for all within this including the product kit.
What I want to do is to display the group AND all of the pamphlets (including those in the group) so that customers can purchase either individual pamphlets and/or the group.How can I do this? Am now wondering if I should use views and filter by taxonomy term.

I would definitely advise using Views. I'm guessing the product "kit" is simply another node (or entity) that defines relationships to the products that it bundles together. If that's the case, you should be able to easily set up a view to return these kits in any number of ways. Considering how you want the view to work, you'll likely have to create and modify a few Views templates (specific to that particular view) to get the desired look and feel.

Thanks.
I have looked at the default ubercart product display view uc_products. Looking at the filters in this view I assume, as the SKUs of the Pamphlets all start with "P" I can filter these by "starts with" but how can I ALSO include the set of Pamphlets (currently in the product kit)?

Hi,
Thanks to your help I have solved it.  You helped by suggesting views.
Realised also that the product kit is a product type so all I needed to do was to filter by product or product kit and they're all there!
Thanks again
