decorators#

excludes#

Excludes decorators added by the "common" option from the product frontend controllers

controller/frontend/product/decorators/excludes = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array ( )

  • Type: array - List of decorator names

  • Since: 2017.03

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 "controller/frontend/common/decorators/default" before they are wrapped around the frontend controller.

 controller/frontend/product/decorators/excludes = array( 'decorator1' )

This would remove the decorator named "decorator1" from the list of common decorators ("\Aimeos\Controller\Frontend\Common\Decorator*") added via "controller/frontend/common/decorators/default" for the product frontend controller.

global#

Adds a list of globally available decorators only to the product frontend controllers

controller/frontend/product/decorators/global = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array ( )

  • Type: array - List of decorator names

  • Since: 2017.03

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\Controller\Frontend\Common\Decorator*") around the frontend controller.

 controller/frontend/product/decorators/global = array( 'decorator1' )

This would add the decorator named "decorator1" defined by "\Aimeos\Controller\Frontend\Common\Decorator\Decorator1" only to the frontend controller.

local#

Adds a list of local decorators only to the product frontend controllers

controller/frontend/product/decorators/local = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array ( )

  • Type: array - List of decorator names

  • Since: 2017.03

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\Controller\Frontend\Product\Decorator*") around the frontend controller.

 controller/frontend/product/decorators/local = array( 'decorator2' )

This would add the decorator named "decorator2" defined by "\Aimeos\Controller\Frontend\Product\Decorator\Decorator2" only to the frontend controller.

name#

Class name of the used product frontend controller implementation

controller/frontend/product/name = Standard
  • Default: Standard
  • Type: string - Last part of the class name
  • Since: 2017.03

Each default frontend controller 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 controller factory knows which class it has to instantiate.

For example, if the name of the default class is

 \Aimeos\Controller\Frontend\Product\Standard

and you want to replace it with your own version named

 \Aimeos\Controller\Frontend\Product\Myproduct

then you have to set the this configuration option:

 controller/jobs/frontend/product/name = Myproduct

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 "MyProduct"!

show-all#

Require products to be assigned to categories

controller/frontend/product/show-all = 
  • Default:
  • Type: bool - FALSE if products must be assigned to categories, TRUE if not
  • Since: 2010.10

By default, products that are shown in the frontend must be assigned to at least one category. When changing this setting to TRUE, also products without categories will be shown in the frontend.

Caution: If you have discount products or variant articles in selection products, these products/articles will be displayed in the frontend too when disabling this setting!
