Catalog detail

cache#

Enables or disables caching only for the catalog detail component

client/html/catalog/detail/cache = 1
  • Default: 1
  • Type: boolean - True to enable caching, false to disable

Disable caching for components can be useful if you would have too much entries to cache or if the component contains non-cacheable parts that can't be replaced using the modifyBody() and modifyHeader() methods.

decorators#

excludes#

Excludes decorators added by the "common" option from the catalog detail html client

client/html/catalog/detail/decorators/excludes = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - List of decorator names
  • Since: 2014.05

Decorators extend the functionality of a class by adding new aspects (e.g. log what is currently done), executing the methods of the underlying class only in certain conditions (e.g. only for logged in users) or modify what is returned to the caller.

This option allows you to remove a decorator added via "client/html/common/decorators/default" before they are wrapped around the html client.

 client/html/catalog/detail/decorators/excludes = array( 'decorator1' )

This would remove the decorator named "decorator1" from the list of common decorators ("\Aimeos\Client\Html\Common\Decorator*") added via "client/html/common/decorators/default" to the html client.

client/html/catalog/detail/decorators/global = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - List of decorator names
  • Since: 2014.05

Decorators extend the functionality of a class by adding new aspects (e.g. log what is currently done), executing the methods of the underlying class only in certain conditions (e.g. only for logged in users) or modify what is returned to the caller.

This option allows you to wrap global decorators ("\Aimeos\Client\Html\Common\Decorator*") around the html client.

 client/html/catalog/detail/decorators/global = array( 'decorator1' )

This would add the decorator named "decorator1" defined by "\Aimeos\Client\Html\Common\Decorator\Decorator1" only to the html client.

client/html/catalog/detail/decorators/local = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - List of decorator names
  • Since: 2014.05

Decorators extend the functionality of a class by adding new aspects (e.g. log what is currently done), executing the methods of the underlying class only in certain conditions (e.g. only for logged in users) or modify what is returned to the caller.

This option allows you to wrap local decorators ("\Aimeos\Client\Html\Catalog\Decorator*") around the html client.

 client/html/catalog/detail/decorators/local = array( 'decorator2' )

This would add the decorator named "decorator2" defined by "\Aimeos\Client\Html\Catalog\Decorator\Decorator2" only to the html client.

domains#

A list of domain names whose items should be available in the product detail view template

client/html/catalog/detail/domains = Array
(
    [0] => attribute
    [1] => media
    [2] => price
    [3] => product
    [4] => product/property
    [5] => text
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - List of domain names
  • Since: 2014.03

The templates rendering product details usually add the images, prices, texts, attributes, products, etc. associated to the product item. If you want to display additional or less content, you can configure your own list of domains (attribute, media, price, product, text, etc. are domains) whose items are fetched from the storage. Please keep in mind that the more domains you add to the configuration, the more time is required for fetching the content!

Since version 2014.05 this configuration option overwrites the "client/html/catalog/domains" option that allows to configure the domain names of the items fetched for all catalog related data.

  • client/html/catalog/lists/domains

metatags#

Adds the title, meta and link tags to the HTML header

client/html/catalog/detail/metatags = 1
  • Default: 1
  • Type: boolean - True to display the meta tags, false to hide it
  • Since: 2017.01

By default, each instance of the catalog list component adds some HTML meta tags to the page head section, like page title, meta keywords and description as well as some link tags to support browser navigation. If several instances are placed on one page, this leads to adding several title and meta tags used by search engine. This setting enables you to suppress these tags in the page header and maybe add your own to the page manually.

  • client/html/catalog/lists/metatags

name#

Class name of the used catalog detail client implementation

client/html/catalog/detail/name = Standard
  • Default: Standard
  • Type: string - Last part of the class name
  • Since: 2014.03

Each default HTML client can be replace by an alternative imlementation. To use this implementation, you have to set the last part of the class name as configuration value so the client factory knows which class it has to instantiate.

For example, if the name of the default class is

 \Aimeos\Client\Html\Catalog\Detail\Standard

and you want to replace it with your own version named

 \Aimeos\Client\Html\Catalog\Detail\Mydetail

then you have to set the this configuration option:

 client/html/catalog/detail/name = Mydetail

The value is the last part of your own class name and it's case sensitive, so take care that the configuration value is exactly named like the last part of the class name.

The allowed characters of the class name are A-Z, a-z and 0-9. No other characters are possible! You should always start the last part of the class name with an upper case character and continue only with lower case characters or numbers. Avoid chamel case names like "MyDetail"!

partials#

image#

Relative path to the detail image partial template file

client/html/catalog/detail/partials/image = catalog/detail/image-partial-standard
  • Default: catalog/detail/image-partial-standard
  • Type: string - Relative path to the template file
  • Since: 2017.01

Partials are templates which are reused in other templates and generate reoccuring blocks filled with data from the assigned values. The image partial creates an HTML block for the catalog detail images.

prodcode-default#

The default product code used if none is given as parameter

client/html/catalog/detail/prodcode-default = 
  • Default:
  • Type: string - Product code
  • Since: 2019.10

To display a product detail view or a part of it for a specific product, you can configure its code using this setting. This is most useful in a CMS where the product code can be configured separately for each content node.

  • client/html/catalog/detail/prodid-default
  • client/html/catalog/lists/catid-default

prodid-default#

The default product ID used if none is given as parameter

  • Default: Standard
  • Type: string - Last part of the client class name
  • Since: 2014.03

Use "Myname" if your class is named "\Aimeos\Client\Html\Catalog\Detail\Seen\Myname". The name is case-sensitive and you should avoid camel case names like "MyName".

standard/subparts#

List of HTML sub-clients rendered within the catalog detail seen section

client/html/catalog/detail/seen/standard/subparts = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - List of sub-client names
  • Since: 2014.03

The output of the frontend is composed of the code generated by the HTML clients. Each HTML client can consist of serveral (or none) sub-clients that are responsible for rendering certain sub-parts of the output. The sub-clients can contain HTML clients themselves and therefore a hierarchical tree of HTML clients is composed. Each HTML client creates the output that is placed inside the container of its parent.

At first, always the HTML code generated by the parent is printed, then the HTML code of its sub-clients. The order of the HTML sub-clients determines the order of the output of these sub-clients inside the parent container. If the configured list of clients is

 array( "subclient1", "subclient2" )

you can easily change the order of the output by reordering the subparts:

 client/html/<clients>/subparts = array( "subclient1", "subclient2" )

You can also remove one or more parts if they shouldn't be rendered:

 client/html/<clients>/subparts = array( "subclient1" )

As the clients only generates structural HTML, the layout defined via CSS should support adding, removing or reordering content by a fluid like design.

standard/template-body#

Relative path to the HTML body template of the catalog detail seen client.

client/html/catalog/detail/seen/standard/template-body = catalog/detail/seen-partial-standard
  • Default: catalog/detail/seen-partial-standard
  • Type: string - Relative path to the template creating code for the HTML page body
  • Since: 2014.03

The template file contains the HTML code and processing instructions to generate the result shown in the body of the frontend. The configuration string is the path to the template file relative to the templates directory (usually in client/html/templates).

You can overwrite the template file configuration in extensions and provide alternative templates. These alternative templates should be named like the default one but with the string "standard" replaced by an unique name. You may use the name of your project for this. If you've implemented an alternative client class as well, "standard" should be replaced by the name of the new class.

The output of the frontend is composed of the code generated by the HTML clients. Each HTML client can consist of serveral (or none) sub-clients that are responsible for rendering certain sub-parts of the output. The sub-clients can contain HTML clients themselves and therefore a hierarchical tree of HTML clients is composed. Each HTML client creates the output that is placed inside the container of its parent.

At first, always the HTML code generated by the parent is printed, then the HTML code of its sub-clients. The order of the HTML sub-clients determines the order of the output of these sub-clients inside the parent container. If the configured list of clients is

 array( "subclient1", "subclient2" )

you can easily change the order of the output by reordering the subparts:

 client/html/<clients>/subparts = array( "subclient1", "subclient2" )

You can also remove one or more parts if they shouldn't be rendered:

 client/html/<clients>/subparts = array( "subclient1" )

As the clients only generates structural HTML, the layout defined via CSS should support adding, removing or reordering content by a fluid like design.

standard/template-body#

Relative path to the HTML body template of the catalog detail supplier client.

client/html/catalog/detail/supplier/standard/template-body = catalog/detail/supplier-body-standard
  • Default: catalog/detail/supplier-body-standard
  • Type: string - Relative path to the template creating code for the HTML page body
  • Since: 2019.10

The template file contains the HTML code and processing instructions to generate the result shown in the body of the frontend. The configuration string is the path to the template file relative to the templates directory (usually in client/html/templates).

You can overwrite the template file configuration in extensions and provide alternative templates. These alternative templates should be named like the default one but with the string "standard" replaced by an unique name. You may use the name of your project for this. If you've implemented an alternative client class as well, "standard" should be replaced by the name of the new class.

config#

Associative list of configuration options used for generating the URL

client/html/catalog/detail/url/config = Array
(
    [absoluteUri] => 1
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: string - Associative list of configuration options
  • Since: 2014.03

You can specify additional options as key/value pairs used when generating the URLs, like

 client/html/<clientname>/url/config = array( 'absoluteUri' => true )

The available key/value pairs depend on the application that embeds the e-commerce framework. This is because the infrastructure of the application is used for generating the URLs. The full list of available config options is referenced in the "see also" section of this page.

For SEO, it's nice to have product URLs which contains the product names only. Usually, product names are unique so exactly one product is found when resolving the product by its name. If two or more products share the same name, it's not possible to refer to the correct product and in this case, the product ID is required as unique identifier.

This setting removes the listed parameters from the URLs of the detail pages.
