Since it uses DHTML the content is there for the spiders to see, you just won't until the layer is made visible.

I know this is probably a whole other mod, but it's linked to this. Does anyone know how to add another piece of information? For instance, another tab with "Additional Information" or "Part Numbers," to a specific product. I know how to add another button and link, but I'd like to add information to each product.

Thanks

One solution to this would be to add all of the additional information under the product details.

then modify the product details page to only displat the short description, then add the tab in the tabs menu, make a detail.tpl, call the detail.tpl via the tabs. In the detail.tpl, is where you would have your product detail description. Start off with the short description adding all additional info.

This is one way I have done this and it seems to wirk quite well.

I'm not quite sure how to call the information via the template. What would be an example inside the detail.tpl?

This is basic description: {$product.descr}

the detailed description is: {$product.fulldescr}

Place this inside of a small table on your detail.tpl file:

Code:
<SPAN class=>{if $product.fulldescr ne ""}{$product.fulldescr} {else}{$product.descr} {/if} </SPAN>

remember to pull out the full line of code in the description area of the product.tpl, and just leave the {$product.descr}

This way you have a shot description, yet all of the details will show in your detail.tpl.

the array is set up so that if there are NO details, then it will display a repeat of the short description.

Clear as mud?
