This is awesome, thank you. I wish I would have discovered it a couple of weeks ago!

I got it to work, but when you click on the link I am getting this error message:
Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /store/files/options/mailing-service.jpg on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Check your file permissions for that file (if linux, use the chmod command).

You may have to create an .htaccess file and put in it:

Quote:


Allow from all

and upload it to your files/options directory.

It did end up having to do with the htaccess file. Thanks for your help, it is now working.

Re: Add a pop-up information box to describe a product option
 
This looks like EXACTLY what I have been searching for.

Is there a limit to how much text you can include in the popup window? Can it popup a window that has images in it?

For example I want to have a link on my jewelry website beside the "Choose Chain Style" that pops up a window showing little pictures of the 8 different chain styles available. Can that be done with this mod?

Thanks in advance for any answers!

All the Best,
Jennifer

It's an html file, so it can be whatever you want :)

Clicking that will open a pop-up window to display more information about that option, similar to the little question mark next to the CVV option on checkout. Tested in 4.0.18, not sure about older versions.

First, create a new folder in your files/ directory called options. Make it writable.

Open up skin1/modules/Product_Options/customer_options.tpl and find this line of code:

Code:

<SELECT id="po{$v.classid}" name="{$poname}"{if $disable} disabled{/if}{if $nojs ne 'Y'} onchange="javascript: check_options();"{/if}>
{foreach from=$v.options item=o}
<OPTION value="{$o.optionid}"{if $o.selected eq 'Y'} selected{/if}>{$o.option_name}{if $v.is_modifier eq 'Y' && $o.price_modifier ne 0} ({if $o.modifier_type ne '%'}{include file="currency.tpl" value=$o.price_modifier display_sign=1}{else}{$o.price_modifier}%{/if}){/if}</OPTION>
{/foreach}
</SELECT>


Just after it, add this:

Code:

{if $v.classtext eq 'Option Name'}
<a href="#" onClick="window.open('files/options/option-name.html','','scrollbars=no,resizable=no,width=300,height=400,menubar=no,toolbar=no');return false;" target="_blank"><img src="{$ImagesDir}/question.gif" border="0" style="vertical-align: middle;" alt="Click here for more info" /></a>{/if}


Replace the following pieces with your information:

- Option Name - this is the name of the option such as select color, select size, etc. as it appears on the product detail screen next to the option drop-down. It is case sensitive, so make sure you type it exactly as it appears.

- option-name.html - replace this with the html file you want to include in the pop-up, or use an image (i.e. imagename.jpg). Be sure to upload the .html or .jpg file to the files/options directory you created

- width= , height= - these the the width/height of the pop-up window. Adjust accordingly.

- alt= - this is the text that will show up when the customer mouses over the question mark image (in Internet Explorer at least).

- question.gif - this is the default x-cart question mark image. I always create my own to go with the style, so adjust this accordingly as well.

The code above will add the image/link to the option specified only. To add it to additional options, use {elseif} statements like this:

Code:

{if $v.classtext eq 'Option Name'}
<a href="#" onClick="window.open('files/options/option-name.html','','scrollbars=no,resizable=no,width=300,height=400,menubar=no,toolbar=no');return false;" target="_blank"><img src="{$ImagesDir}/question.gif" border="0" style="vertical-align: middle;" alt="Click here for more info" /></a>

{elseif $v.classtext eq 'Option Name2'}
<a href="#" onClick="window.open('files/options/option-name2.html','','scrollbars=no,resizable=no,width=300,height=400,menubar=no,toolbar=no');return false;" target="_blank"><img src="{$ImagesDir}/question.gif" border="0" style="vertical-align: middle;" alt="Click here for more info" /></a>
{/if}


Now this can get really clunky if you have a million options to add a link to, but it works well if you only have a few universal options. It will NOT work if you have a different image/html page to link to for each individual product, such as if you have different color charts for each product.

If you want to link to a unique image/html page for each product, you can use this:

Code:

{if $v.classtext eq 'Option Name'}
<a href="#" onClick="window.open('files/options/{$product.productid}.html','','scrollbars=no,resizable=no,width=300,height=400,menubar=no,toolbar=no');return false;" target="_blank"><img src="{$ImagesDir}/question.gif" border="0" style="vertical-align: middle;" alt="Click here for more info" /></a>{/if}


So if you are veiwing the details for a product with ID # 8, clicking on the link next to the 'Option Name' option will link you to files/options/8.html.

Make sense? Post here with any questions and I'll answer them. Enjoy!

This is exactly what I need but it seems to work only on "Price modifier" and not on a "Custom text field".

Is it possible to make it work on the Custom text field?

Yea, you need to add the code next to the text field code instead of the select code.

Oops!! Didn't read this post before posting my previous question.

How or where do I put the code next to the Custom text box?
