View similar products in this category - idea

Hi all

 

 

I would like to create a link in product_info that allows a shopper to view more products in the category of the product that they are viewing...

 

e.g

 

Someone clicks on one of the featured products on the welcome page...

This product is close but not the correct model they require...

Currently it is not very apparent to the shopper how they can view similar products (i.e more in this category)

 

Anyone know how to do this ? ....perhaps the breadcrumb trail code could be modified ??

 

 

Thanks

John....

John,

 

Take a look at the contribution called "Family Products". It lets you associate realted products into a display similar to featured products.

Thanks for that Kim, however I am not looking for something as complicated.

 

I simply want to create a link in product_info that lists the other products in the same category of the one that you are viewing....

 

This of course would not need to be maintained etc

 

 

e.g

 

Click here to view other products in this category

 

Anyone else ?

 

Thanks

John

Then just add a link back to the category for that item.....

 

<?php echo tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, "cPath=$current_category_id"); ?>

We have links like that to find our products in a different format (CD,VHS,etc). It was easy to add a link that uses the search page to find the similar products. You can see an example here.

In olden times the men were made of iron and the ships were made of wood; now it's the other way around. :wink:
