Title: Multiple instances of "related categories" customfield: is this possible?
Post by: SteP[IT] on February 11, 2015, 10:33:03 am
I'm in the needing of listing in product view some product related categories, but once per field (each related category must have ist own label followed by the category link...).
I have simply tried to clone the "Custom prototype for related categories" field, renaming it as per my needing, but it does not show the field in product admin interface. Is there a way to get multiple instances of this field working in any product?
Thank you in advance
Regards

Yes it is possible, and even already planned. That is the reason, that you can create the custom for related products more than one time now. In vm2.6 we hide it.

OK, thanks: I'll wait for that new feature, and in the meantime I'll look for a workaround by templating it as per my needing :)

Just create a second custom for related products and give it another position, create an override using that postion. That works already. The problem is to fill the product customfield with related items.

The problem is to fill the product customfield with related items.
But, how to avoid this problem? Really, it will be very helpful .
Otherwise it seems like: "Now there is a new pocket on your pants, it's very deep. But we sewed it."

We have to change the JS quite a lot. It is not really trivial

I understand it.
Importantly, that work is being done and it gives hope.

Can this ever be realized?
How to fill the product customfield with related items for another positions?
Maybe, some commercial plugins can help?

As far as I know, you can already do it. Just create first a new prototype and try to use it.

d0ublezer0, the problem is to add the ID of related product, not to declare the custom related.
But what is your need. Simply display other products and categories in another position?

It's possible to do a plugin for this, i already have similar code to do the plugin.
pm me if you dont find a solution, i can write the plugin in 2 or 3 hours maximum.

Yes, i need more than one related products mapping, displayed in other position.
I want to be able to specify several product sets to the main product:
Similar products.
Complementary goods.
I know, how to display them, but there is no solution how to fill them and manage later..
