An e-Marketing Spot can be configured to specify an exact number of recommendations to return. This is not occurring for content recommendations when the DM_ActivityOrder flag is set to true to cause the marketing runtime to return the recommendations in the exact order specified in the activities (do not group product, category, or content recommendations together). The following steps illustrate how to reproduce the problem: 1. Create a web activity to return two content recommendations 2. In the e-Marketing Spot JSP, have the following configuration: <wcf:param name="DM_ActivityOrder" value="true" /> 3. In the page including the e-Marketing Spot, set it to return only one recommendation <c:param name="numberContentToDisplay" value="1"/> 4. Activate the activity, and view the e-Marketing Spot on the storefront. Observed results: The e-Marketing Spot will display both content recommendations. Expected results: Only the first content recommendation should display in the e-Marketing Spot.
USERS AFFECTED: WebSphere Commerce users on v7.0 using Management Center Marketing 'Content recommendation' web activities. PROBLEM ABSTRACT: E-Marketing Spot may not display the correct number of content recommendations when the DM_ActivityOrder parameter is set to true BUSINESS IMPACT: Content recommendations may not display properly on the storefront RECOMMENDATION:
The marketing runtime code was fixed to respect the DM_DisplayContent parameter when the DM_ActivityOrder parameter is set to true. ------------------------------------------------------------- The latest available maintenance information can be obtained from the Recommended Fixes for WebSphere Commerce technote: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=3046&uid=swg21261296
