Catalog lists

basket-add#

Display the "add to basket" button for each product item

client/html/catalog/lists/basket-add = 
  • Default:
  • Type: boolean - True to display the button, false to hide it
  • Since: 2016.01

Enables the button for adding products to the basket from the list view. This works for all type of products, even for selection products with product variants and product bundles. By default, also optional attributes are displayed if they have been associated to a product.

Note: To fetch the necessary product variants, you have to extend the list of domains for "client/html/catalog/lists/domains", e.g.

 client/html/catalog/lists/domains = array( 'attribute', 'media', 'price', 'product', 'text' )

  • client/html/catalog/domains

cache#

Enables or disables caching only for the catalog lists component

client/html/catalog/lists/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.

catid-default#

The default category ID used if none is given as parameter

client/html/catalog/lists/catid-default = 
  • Default:
  • Type: string - Category ID
  • Since: 2014.03

If users view a product list page without a category ID in the parameter list, the first found products are displayed with a random order. You can circumvent this by configuring a default category ID that should be used in this case (the ID of the root category is best for this). In most cases you can set this value via the administration interface of the shop application.

decorators#

excludes#

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

client/html/catalog/lists/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/lists/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.

global#

Adds a list of globally available decorators only to the catalog list html client

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

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

local#

Adds a list of local decorators only to the catalog list html client

client/html/catalog/lists/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/lists/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 list view template

client/html/catalog/lists/domains = Array
(
    [0] => media
    [1] => price
    [2] => text
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - List of domain names
  • Since: 2014.03

The templates rendering product lists usually add the images, prices and texts associated to each product item. If you want to display additional content like the product attributes, 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!

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.

text-types#

The list of text types that should be rendered in the catalog list head section

client/html/catalog/lists/head/text-types = Array
(
    [0] => long
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - List of text type names
  • Since: 2014.03

The head section of the catalog list view at least consists of the category name. By default, all short and long descriptions of the category are rendered as well.

You can add more text types or remove ones that should be displayed by modifying these list of text types, e.g. if you've added a new text type and texts of that type to some or all categories.

infinite-scroll#

Enables infinite scrolling in product catalog list

client/html/catalog/lists/infinite-scroll = 
  • Default:
  • Type: boolean - True to use infinite scrolling, false to disable it
  • Since: 2019.10

If set to true, products from the next page are loaded via XHR request and added to the product list when the user reaches the list bottom.

items#

decorators/excludes#

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

client/html/catalog/lists/items/decorators/excludes = 
  • Default:
  • Type: array - List of decorator names
  • Since: 2015.08

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/lists/items/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.

name#

Name of the items part used by the catalog list client implementation

client/html/catalog/lists/items/name = Standard
  • 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\Lists\Items\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 list items section

client/html/catalog/lists/items/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 list items client.

client/html/catalog/lists/items/standard/template-body = catalog/lists/items-body-standard
  • Default: catalog/lists/items-body-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.

It's also possible to create a specific template for each type, e.g. for the grid, list or whatever view you want to offer your users. In that case, you can configure the template by adding "-" to the configuration key. To configure an alternative list view template for example, use the key

client/html/catalog/lists/items/standard/template-body-list = catalog/lists/items-body-list.php

The argument is the relative path to the new template file. The type of the view is determined by the "l_type" parameter (allowed characters for the types are a-z and 0-9), which is also stored in the session so users will keep the view during their visit. The catalog list type subpart contains the template for switching between list types.

standard/template-body-list#

client/html/catalog/lists/items/standard/template-body-list = catalog/lists/items-body-list
  • Default: catalog/lists/items-body-standard

standard/template-header#

Relative path to the HTML header template of the catalog list items client.

client/html/catalog/lists/items/standard/template-header = catalog/lists/items-header-standard
  • Default: catalog/lists/items-header-standard
  • Type: string - Relative path to the template creating code for the HTML page head
  • Since: 2014.03

The template file contains the HTML code and processing instructions to generate the HTML code that is inserted into the HTML page header of the rendered page in 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.

It's also possible to create a specific template for each type, e.g. for the grid, list or whatever view you want to offer your users. In that case, you can configure the template by adding "-" to the configuration key. To configure an alternative list view template for example, use the key

levels#

Include products of sub-categories in the product list of the current category

client/html/catalog/lists/levels = 1
  • Default: 1
  • Type: integer - Tree level constant
  • Since: 2015.11

Sometimes it may be useful to show products of sub-categories in the current category product list, e.g. if the current category contains no products at all or if there are only a few products in all categories.

Possible constant values for this setting are:

  • 1 : Only products from the current category
  • 2 : Products from the current category and the direct child categories
  • 3 : Products from the current category and the whole category sub-tree

Caution: Please keep in mind that displaying products of sub-categories can slow down your shop, especially if it contains more than a few products! You have no real control over the positions of the products in the result list too because all products from different categories with the same position value are placed randomly.

Usually, a better way is to associate products to all categories they should be listed in. This can be done manually if there are only a few ones or during the product import automatically.

metatags#

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

client/html/catalog/lists/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/detail/metatags

name#

Class name of the used catalog list client implementation

client/html/catalog/lists/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\Lists\Standard

and you want to replace it with your own version named

 \Aimeos\Client\Html\Catalog\Lists\Mylist

then you have to set the this configuration option:

 client/html/catalog/lists/name = Mylist

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 "MyList"!

pages#

Maximum number of product pages shown in pagination

client/html/catalog/lists/pages = 100
  • Default: 100
  • Type: integer - Number of pages
  • Since: 2019.04

Limits the number of product pages that are shown in the navigation. The user is able to move to the next page (or previous one if it's not the first) to display the next (or previous) products.

The value must be a positive integer number. Negative values are not allowed. The value can't be overwritten per request.

pagination#

enable#

Enables or disables pagination in list views

client/html/catalog/lists/pagination/enable = 1
  • Default: 1
  • Type: boolean - True for enabling, false for disabling pagination
  • Since: 2019.04

Pagination is automatically hidden if there are not enough products in the category or search result. But sometimes you don't want to show the pagination at all, e.g. if you implement infinite scrolling by loading more results dynamically using AJAX.

partials#

pagination#

Relative path to the pagination partial template file for catalog lists

client/html/catalog/lists/partials/pagination = catalog/lists/pagination-standard
  • Default: catalog/lists/pagination-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 pagination partial creates an HTML block containing a page browser and sorting links if necessary.

promo#

decorators/excludes#

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

client/html/catalog/lists/promo/decorators/excludes = 
  • Default:
  • Type: array - List of decorator names
  • Since: 2015.08

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/lists/promo/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.

decorators/global#

Adds a list of globally available decorators only to the catalog list promo html client

client/html/catalog/lists/promo/decorators/global = 
  • Default:
  • Type: array - List of decorator names
  • Since: 2015.08

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/lists/promo/decorators/global = array( 'decorator1' )

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

Adds a list of local decorators only to the catalog list promo html client

client/html/catalog/lists/promo/decorators/local = 
  • Default:
  • Type: array - List of decorator names
  • Since: 2015.08

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/lists/promo/decorators/local = array( 'decorator2' )

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

Name of the promotion part used by the catalog list client implementation

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

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

size#

The maximum number of products that should be shown in the promotion section

client/html/catalog/lists/promo/size = 6
  • Default: 6
  • Type: integer - Number of promotion products
  • Since: 2014.03

Each product list can render a list of promoted products on top if there are any products associated to that category whose list type is "promotion". This option limits the maximum number of products that are displayed. It takes only effect if more promotional products are added to this category than the set value.

standard/subparts#

List of HTML sub-clients rendered within the catalog list promo section

client/html/catalog/lists/promo/standard/subparts = Array

client/html/catalog/lists/sort = relevance
  • Default: relevance
  • Type: string - Sort code "relevance", "name", "-name", "price", "-price", "ctime" or "-ctime"
  • Since: 2018.07

Configures the standard sorting of products in list views. This sorting is used as long as it's not overwritten by an URL parameter. Except "relevance", all other sort codes can be prefixed by a "-" (minus) sign to sort the products in a descending order. By default, the sorting is ascending.

standard#

subparts#

List of HTML sub-clients rendered within the catalog list section

client/html/catalog/lists/standard/subparts = Array
(
    [0] => items
)
  • 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.

template-body#

Relative path to the HTML body template of the catalog list client.

client/html/catalog/lists/standard/template-body = catalog/lists/body-standard
  • Default: catalog/lists/body-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.

It's also possible to create a specific template for each type, e.g. for the grid, list or whatever view you want to offer your users. In that case, you can configure the template by adding "-" to the configuration key. To configure an alternative list view template for example, use the key

client/html/catalog/lists/standard/template-body-list = catalog/lists/body-list.php

The argument is the relative path to the new template file. The type of the view is determined by the "l_type" parameter (allowed characters for the types are a-z and 0-9), which is also stored in the session so users will keep the view during their visit. The catalog list type subpart contains the template for switching between list types.

template-header#

Relative path to the HTML header template of the catalog list client.

client/html/catalog/lists/standard/template-header = catalog/lists/header-standard
  • Default: catalog/lists/header-standard
  • Type: string - Relative path to the template creating code for the HTML page head
  • Since: 2014.03

The template file contains the HTML code and processing instructions to generate the HTML code that is inserted into the HTML page header of the rendered page in 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.

stock#

enable#

Enables or disables displaying product stock levels in product list views

client/html/catalog/lists/stock/enable = 1
  • Default: 1
  • Type: boolean - Value of "1" to display stock levels, "0" to disable displaying them
  • Since: 2014.03

This configuration option allows shop owners to display product stock levels for each product in list views or to disable fetching product stock information.

The stock information is fetched via AJAX and inserted via Javascript. This allows to cache product items by leaving out such highly dynamic content like stock levels which changes with each order.

url#

action#

Name of the action that should create the output

client/html/catalog/lists/url/action = list
  • Default: list
  • Type: string - Name of the action
  • Since: 2014.03

In Model-View-Controller (MVC) applications, actions are the methods of a controller that create parts of the output displayed in the generated HTML page. Action names are usually alpha-numeric.

config#

Associative list of configuration options used for generating the URL

client/html/catalog/lists/url/config = Array
(
)
  • 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.

Destination of the URL where the controller specified in the URL is known

client/html/catalog/lists/url/target = 
  • Default:
  • Type: string - Destination of the URL
  • Since: 2014.03

The destination can be a page ID like in a content management system or the module of a software development framework. This "target" must contain or know the controller that should be called by the generated URL.
