Shopp Product Page Browser – Plugin

Try out our new Shopp Product Page Browser – plugin.

In short, the plugin will add the shopp(‘product’,’browser’) tag to your Shopp environment. All you have to do is add the tag to your Shopp product.php template file and it will display a link to the previous/next product.

This can be done by use of default Shopp tags too, but we were looking for easy access for non-programmers.

We’ve added a settings page in the Shopp Extra Menu (Shopp sppb). This will make it easy for everyone to make changes to the generated links. The downside is, the settings will apply to your entire Shopp webshop. We’d love to hear whether or not you like this approach.

Features:

- set the phrases used for 'Previous' and 'Next'
- set to use product thumbnails instead of 'Previous'/'Next'
- set the size of the thumbnails
- use preset size for thumbnails (1.3 version only)
- exclude categories 
  ('Previous'/'Next'-buttons will not appear on those Shopp product pages)
- exclude products 
  ('Previous'/'Next'-buttons will not appear on those Shopp product pages)
- set maximum number of products in category

Where to put the tag in product.php?
The choice is yours, but a good spot would be just above the else-statement at the end of the file.

Read the readme.txt file for more instructions. The code to add to your Shopp product.php template file is different for version 1.0.2, 1.2.5, and 1.3 of our plugin.

Remember, your products need to be in categories.
