This extension allows you to handle from backend the creation of multiple product link types (relationships), as if they where regular product attributes.
So you can add a products attributes to an attributes set and create a new type of link to fill on the product edit page.
It provides an easy way to choose where to show each related product listing in the product page, and also as a CMS widget that is very easy to use, and also very customizable.
Here is a video that shows how to add a new attribute to create a new product link type (relation).
That new relation will be shown in the product edition as a new tab where you can choose the products to relate.Click here to watch the video of how to add a new attribute.
What you need to do is create a new attribute of the type "custom product relation".
a - go to the menu "catalog" > "Manage Attributes"
b - click on "add new attribute"
c - fill the form with this:
catalog input type for store owner: yes/no
default value: no
product link type: yes
d - go to the tab "manage label options", and just add "My Relation" on them
e - click on save button
a - go to Catalog > Manage Attribute Sets
b - click on the attribute set "default"
c - drag from the left list "unassigned attributes" to the right list in the group "general" (the item will be at the bottom so scroll the list)
d - click save the attribute set
after that you are ready to use the new custom product relation.
a - enter to Catalog > Manage products
b - click on the product that uses the "default" attribute set name that you want to add "Associated PDFs"
c - on the general tab select "yes" for the option "My Relation"
d - go to the tab "My Relation" and click on the reset button, or just search the pdf downloadable products that you want to associate.
e - select the products from that grid
f - click on save
When the extension is installed, it automatically creates a new product attribute accesories that is added to the default attribute set. . You can create many of these, or modify this one if you like, it is just a default example.
This new attribute has the following options:
The extension allows you to create a specific widget for the new product relation types so you can add the list in any of your pages.
The widget allows you to set the title, choose the product, choose the attribute of the relation, set the template from a list of predefined templates and enter the number of column (for specific templates)
It is also possible to add new templates options by configuring your local.xml, that way the widget will list those new optionsClick here to watch the video of how to add a Custom Relation Product List widget
In the section 2.0 - Adding new attribute I explain how to create a new attribute. But that attribute has only the options to “show” or “hide” the relations.
The module allows you to do more specific customization, as you can see in the default attribute “accesories” you have more than just two options to show the relations.
You can create more attribute similar to this one.
Follow the same instructions than in 2.0, but with this changes
Step 2 - c Choose “Multipe Select” instead of “yes/no”
Step 2 - d Add as many option values as you need and fill them like in this image:</b>http://i.imgur.com/P34SnGE.jpg
When you add the options you want to allow administrators choose for this attribute, you will have to set the Admin label, which is what they will actually see on the select. and you have to add in the storeview value some instruction the option should execute.
Here is an explanation about the instructions that are posible to add in that place:
on each storeview value you can put one or more instructions separated by comma, i.e. position:left, after:-
each instruction has the sintax: instruction:value
- position. The postiion let you choose other place to locate the product listing. By default it will add it to the right column, but with this instruction you can change that default behavior.
Is actually equivalent to add in the layout something like:
So this give you pretty much control for the relations on your custom template.
- before/after. The before and after instructions are the same that are used in magento, the value "-" just mean all, you can also specify a specific block id in there as you would in an xml layout file.
- title: Sets the attribute "title" for the listing block (Intellimage_CustomRelations_Block_Catalog_Product_List) if none is set then the Attribute value is used ("Accesories", "Associated PDFs", etc)
- template: Sets the attribute "template" for the listing block, by default the listing block is "catalog/product/list/any.phtml", in here you can specify another template you want to use (or have the option to select) for this relation.
