Add to cart button for futured products on the home page.
« on: June 02, 2012, 23:10:36 pm »
I am sure I am not the only one but I couldn't find an answer to this.

I would like to simple have a add to cart button on the front page. I know how the template override works but don't know what code(s) to copy. I can I do this for joomla 2.5.4 and virturemart 2.0.6?

Update..

for vm 2.0.6

copy from /sites/pondies/dev/components/com_virtuemart/views/productdetails/tmpl/default_addtocart.php


Code: [Select]
<div class="addtocart-area">

    <form method="post" class="product js-recalculate" action="index.php" >
<?php // Product custom_fields
if (!empty($this->product->customfieldsCart)) { ?>

    <div class="product-fields">
<?php foreach ($this->product->customfieldsCart as $field) { ?>
    <div class="product-field product-field-type-<?php echo $field->field_type ?>">
<span class="product-fields-title" ><b><?php echo JText::_($field->custom_title?></b></span>
<?php if ($field->custom_tip)
    echo JHTML::tooltip($field->custom_tipJText::_($field->custom_title), 'tooltip.png'); ?>

<span class="product-field-display"><?php echo $field->display ?></span>

<span class="product-field-desc"><?php echo $field->custom_field_desc ?></span>
    </div><br />
    <?php
}
?>

    </div>
<?php
}
/* Product custom Childs
 * to display a simple link use $field->virtuemart_product_id as link to child product_id
 * custom_value is relation value to child
 */

if (!empty($this->product->customsChilds)) {
    ?>

    <div class="product-fields">
    <?php foreach ($this->product->customsChilds as $field) { ?>
    <div class="product-field product-field-type-<?php echo $field->field->field_type ?>">
<span class="product-fields-title" ><b><?php echo JText::_($field->field->custom_title?></b></span>
<span class="product-field-desc"><?php echo JText::_($field->field->custom_value?></span>
<span class="product-field-display"><?php echo $field->display ?></span>

    </div><br />
<?php ?>
    </div>
<?php ?>

<div class="addtocart-bar">

<?php // Display the quantity box 

    
$stockhandle VmConfig::get('stockhandle''none');
    if ((
$stockhandle == 'disableit' or $stockhandle == 'disableadd') and ($this->product->product_in_stock $this->product->product_ordered) < 1) {
 
?>

<a href="<?php echo JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=productdetails&layout=notify&virtuemart_product_id='.$this->product->virtuemart_product_id); ?>"><?php echo JText::_('COM_VIRTUEMART_CART_NOTIFY'?></a>

<?php } else { ?>
<!-- <label for="quantity<?php echo $this->product->virtuemart_product_id?>" class="quantity_box"><?php echo JText::_('COM_VIRTUEMART_CART_QUANTITY'); ?>: </label> -->
    <span class="quantity-box">
<input type="text" class="quantity-input js-recalculate" name="quantity[]" value="<?php if (isset($this->product->min_order_level) && (int) $this->product->min_order_level 0) {
    echo 
$this->product->min_order_level;
} else {
    echo 
'1';
?>
" />
    </span>
    <span class="quantity-controls js-recalculate">
<input type="button" class="quantity-controls quantity-plus" />
<input type="button" class="quantity-controls quantity-minus" />
    </span>
    <?php // Display the quantity box END ?>

    <?php
    
// Display the add to cart button
    ?>

<span class="addtocart-button">
<input type="submit" name="addtocart"  class="addtocart-button" value="<?php echo JText::_('COM_VIRTUEMART_CART_ADD_TO'?>" title="<?php echo JText::_('COM_VIRTUEMART_CART_ADD_TO'?>" />
</span>
<?php ?>

    <div class="clear"></div>
</div>

<?php // Display the add to cart button END  ?>
<input type="hidden" class="pname" value="<?php echo $this->product->product_name ?>" />
<input type="hidden" name="option" value="com_virtuemart" />
<input type="hidden" name="view" value="cart" />
<noscript><input type="hidden" name="task" value="add" /></noscript>
<input type="hidden" name="virtuemart_product_id[]" value="<?php echo $this->product->virtuemart_product_id ?>" />
<?php /** @todo Handle the manufacturer view */ ?>
<input type="hidden" name="virtuemart_manufacturer_id" value="<?php echo $this->product->virtuemart_manufacturer_id ?>" />
<input type="hidden" name="virtuemart_category_id[]" value="<?php echo $this->product->virtuemart_category_id ?>" />
    </form>

    <div class="clear"></div>
</div>


to your desired override file and location. e.g. I put mine on the featured front page.
original...    components/com_virtuemart/views/virtuemart/tmpl/default_products.php
overide/my desired override file... templates/yourtemplatename/html/com_virtuemart/virtuemart/default_products.php   (note: this has to be created)


I didn't want the plus and minus signs so I comment that code out

<span class="quantity-controls js-recalculate">
      <input type="button" class="quantity-controls quantity-plus" />
      <input type="button" class="quantity-controls quantity-minus" />
       </span>

For some reason in order for the minicart to show the product name I had to take out "this->"

<?php echo $this->product->product_name ?>" />
<?php echo $this->product->virtuemart_product_id ?>" />
<?php echo $this->product->virtuemart_manufacturer_id ?>" />
<?php echo $this->product->virtuemart_category_id ?>" />

That may or may not work for you.

check for missing divs and that's is it.
