I thought the product variants could allow you to have different images for each price variant. Since that code is already there a developer could use it to make your pop ups. I have a really great resource that could make this happen. Let me know if I can help!

There is a limit to the number of variants that can be used. We deal with too many products to use variants except when absolutely needed and therefore must use product modifiers. If you look at our site under access doors-custom configurations, you'll understand my issues.

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.

Thanks! I looked at the image you provided as an example. We could develop such a mod and in order to make it "seo valuable" the "pop up" could be developed so that the "pop up" is "seo valuable" as long as the pop up link starts with "<a href=" then a URL, then the other stuff you want (ALT tags, size tags, CSS, etc), and finally a closing "</a>". As long as you follow this, a search engine will usually be able to follow it and pass on link popularity.

Additionally, if you are looking for actual "on page seo value" it is possible to "Show and Hide Text in DIVs with CSS and JavaScript". This would create an expandable text box that would accomplish the same thing but rather than a "pop up" your viewer would see a nice text box expand. Now you could take this same technique one step further and throw in a little AJAX to make the content appear to "pop up" rather than "show/hide" but I think the "show/hide" is cleaner.

Let me how I might help!

I understand. Too many variants load the database and slow the site. The thing is if you modify the product options to do what you want with the images you will basically run into the same issue. That is why it is not practical to do if you would have too many "options" with unique images. If it were to be done at all I would stick with my initial suggestion.

I think this should be a feature included in X-cart out of the box. It's a great feature that many others e-commerce cart has it.
Anyway, anybody know how to make it work on 4.6 ?
Thanks !

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

I'm trying to implement this very useful Mod in my 4.6; I'm not a PHP guy, so I found two problems so far:
1- The image ( question.gif ) shows on the next line, not next to the option I want to use ( should be minor thing but ..(CR). )
2- when I click the image ( question ) it gives me a 404 error
( page doesn't exist ), I checked name with the one I uploaded, many times, but it can't find it.

I copy part of the code on my customer_options.tpl, which is 3 rd party template.
Maybe someone know what I'm doing wrong, and point me right.
Thanks !
