Default Link from product to another shopping cart

Is it possible to add a product to the store, but not allow customers to add it to their shopping cart? I would like to list a product in a category, but I want to add a link to another site where people can actually buy the product since I won't be carrying it.

Thanks for your help!

Yes, this is possible.

I have done this modification before by using one of the extra fields in the product table to hold a affiliate add to cart link url and then put a check into products.tpl and product.tpl to change the add to cart for a buy now button.

The buy now button has a href of the extra field param url.

I hope that isn't too much code speak for you.

Give me a shout if you want the mod done - would take about an hour.

So, you code a check to look for a link entry in the extra field, and if there's something in that field, then print the Buy Now button instead of the Add to Cart button? I'm going to try to hack away at that and see if I can figure it out.

Thanks so much for your help!

no probs.

I used:
Code:
{if $product.param00 eq ""} Put the normal add to cart stuff here {else} {include file="buttons/order_now.tpl"} {/if}

I used param00 but use whatever you feel fit.

you will also need to either switch off extra fields and add the param00 update box to the product_modify template in main or amend modules/extra_fields/product.tpl to stop it displaying the url in the product details.

Default Could you please elaborate?

Hi,

This is exactly what I need as well. Can you please give me a little more detail on what you did? I didn't follow this very well.

Thanks,
Jon

This is an example of product.tpl from a 3.3 version shop just to show you where the code went. I have commented the code for you:

Please post your code between {code} {/code} tags (substitute { with [ and } with ]).

Hi

I used one of the param fields to hold this info - you seem to be referring to a field in the product table called PartnerLink. Unless you have added this to your products table and amended all of the php scripts to store a value into this, it wont work.

replace $product.PartnerLink for $product.param08 and it will work.
