Default external link

Post by Matze396 » 23 Jul 2020, 16:09

Hey,

i am using phoca cart only as a product gallery, so i didnt need the cart itsself.
Instead of the "Add to Cart" button i am using the button with the external link. Is it possible to set a default link-value for it? It would be easier for me, because it`s the same in 99% of the use-cases.

Best wishes,
Matze :)

Hi, for now there is no such feature, so this needs to be customized directly in php code :-(

Hi, you can set default values in XML:
administrator\components\com_phocacart\models\forms\phocacartitem.xml

E.g. on line 25, set default attribute:

Image

Then this value will be pre-filled when editing products

Thanks!

I can find the folder but not the phocacartitem.xml.
There is only a file for submit, checkout,...

Can i add the file manually - like that:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<form>
	<field name="external_link" type="text" class="inputbox" default="www.google.de" size="40" label="COM_PHOCACART_FIELD_EXTERNAL_LINK_LABEL" description="COM_PHOCACART_FIELD_EXTERNAL_LINK_DESC"/>
</form>

Hi, it is a core file and without it you will be not able to edit products in administration. So the file needs to be there.

Thanks a lot Jan! It works!

It was my fault...i searched in the main component folder and not in administrator/component.
