Default Re: Add a pop-up information box to describe a product option

Is there any way to use the content from a static page that is created within X-Cart in the pop-up? I figured I could make the pop-up simply be the static page that is created in X-Cart, but instead would like just the content of that page.

Any ideas?

Looking at the original code and instructions...

Quote:
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,resiz able=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.

.. it shouldn't be too difficult. Just copy the html code from where the static page is created in x-cart, paste it into a good text editor, name it accordingly (i.e. 8.html), and upload it to the files/options/ directory. If you try to link the popup to the static page directly you may end up having your entire site in the popup window (I haven't checked this, but it seems like that is what would happen).

This would not allow for selecting WHICH pages to pop up so they would all pop up. To make it so you could choose you would need a mod. Let me know how it goes and if I can help.

Default Re: Add a pop-up information box to describe a product option

I want to display an image that is unique to the specific price modifier selected in the drop-down menu. I presented this code to my developer who claims that it is not written to offer that option. Is anyone aware of code that offers the option that I have described?

Great Mod! I would be interested if you can release a version that allows you to have a "learn more" link or whatever I wish to call it on category pages and manufacturer pages or on any pages on my site for that matter.

For example: if you click on a category from your category list on storefront or sub categories it must allow you to put a popup there to allow you to tell your customers a bit more about the products / services that can be found on that page. Would be even greater if the popup can be picked up as part of the SEO for that page.

This would be a great space saver as it would allow you to say so much more without having to keep it sweet and short.

Below is an example image of a manufacturer page, have a popup there and you can provide a whole page of info in the popup instead of just bit of info as you can see. But it will all be pointless if the info inside the popup does not form part of the SEO for that page.

You might just want to try using Product Variants, as each variant can have its own image.

See the section, "Managing Product Variants" on this page of the online reference manual:
