How to add your own Shopp tag

How to add your own Shopp tag

After working with Shopp for some time you will be familiar with the shopp(‘object’, ‘property’, ‘options’) tag that is used all over the Shopp templates. These Shopp tags make it super easy to customize the display of your webshop. There are a lot of tags built-in, but what is even better… you can create your own tags!

Shopp Featured Images

A plugin to add featured images to your products on the product editor page.

Featured images are part of WordPress and mostly used by themes.
Once saved, your featured image becomes part of WordPress.
You can use it the same way you would use a featured image of a common post.

This plugin by default will replace the display of a coverimage of your product with your featured image.
This means you can have the featured image in the category listing, and other images (including your original coverimage) on the product page.

You can disable this feature by adding this code to your functions.php

add_filter('shopp_auto_featured_thumb', 'do_not_replace_coverimages');
function do_not_replace_coverimages() { return false; }

Shopp Customized Related Products

Adds the feature to select related products per product in the Product Editor section.
Enhance Cross-selling.

On the settings page of the plugin you can set:

  • Products per product
  • Products per row
  • Selection default (Tag or Category)
  • Category Orderby
  • Category Order (ASC/DESC)
  • Hide Empty
  • Tag Orderby
  • Tag Order (ASC/DESC)
  • Alternative Category in case no related products have been set yet
  • Title

In the Product Editor a new section will be present at the bottom of the page.

You can display the selected related products in the webshop by adding a new shopp tag (shopp(‘product.custom-related-products’)) to your product.php template. A good spot would be at the end of the page between the ‘endif’ and ‘else’ command.

This new tag works like any other Shopp tag, you can add options to override general settings.

There is a template you can copy to your /your-theme/shopp/ folder and adjust like any other Shopp template.

Shopp Product Exporter

We have created a Shopp Product Exporter plugin that will export your product details to a CSV file. The exporter works properly on Shopp 1.3.x or higher installations. We do not expect it to work with older Shopp versions.

This plugin will export all fields that can be set in the Shopp Product Editor screen.

The Shopp Exporter plugin exports the following properties*

  • Add-on(s)
  • Category name (and substructure)
  • Comments
  • Description
  • Details
  • Donation MIN
  • Donation VAR
  • Download (file name)
  • Exclude Taxes
  • Extra fee
  • Featured
  • Height
  • Image (file name)
  • Inventory
  • Length
  • Name
  • Not Taxed
  • Pingbacks
  • Price
  • Processing time MIN
  • Processing time MAX
  • Product Identifier (for use with Importer)
  • Publish
  • Sale
  • Sale price
  • Separate Packaging
  • SKU
  • Stock Quantity
  • Subscription trial
  • Subscription trial interval
  • Subscription trial period
  • Subscription trial price
  • Subscription billing cycles
  • Subscription billing interval
  • Subscription billing period
  • Summary
  • Tag(s)
  • Tax
  • Type
  • Variation(s)
  • Weight
  • Width

*all properties are related to the Product Editor screen of Shopp. For example, we are not exporting comments, but the setting for comments (on/off).

A few things to keep in mind.
The plugin exports the default fields you can fill out on the Shopp Product Editor screen. So it doesn’t export comments you may have on a product page but it exports the comments on/off setting. This also goes for settings like tax, ping, sale and so on.

If you have a plugin active that adds custom fields to the Shopp Product Editor screen, these custom fields will be EXCLUDED from export.

The plugin is developed with the structure of the Shopp Product Importer plugin in mind. On the Shopp Product Importer settings page some settings can be entered as default for all product. Because of that some fields will not be exported if the value is the same for all products.

Current version: 0.8

Shopp Auto Capture Payment

By default Shopp will authorize only on payments. The merchant can manually capture payment when products ship. This is confirm the rules set by Visa and Mastercard.

When merchants want to auto capture payment right away they can add a filter to their theme’s functions.php. To prevent merchants from having to get their hands dirty on coding we created a simple plugin that will do the same thing.

One more benefit, you will not lose the functionality on theme updates or theme change.

Shopp Cleaner

We have created a Shopp Cleaner plugin that will remove the traces of deleted products.

When you create a Shopp product, a lot of information is stored.
When you delete a Shopp product, not all stored information is removed.
The same goes for discounts, tags, categories.

The Shopp Cleaner plugin will

  • remove entries related to non-existing products from shopp_meta, shopp_price, shopp_index, shopp_summary and terms tables
  • remove unused images from shopp_meta table, and filestorage folder
  • remove entries related to non-existing discounts from shopp_price table
  • cleanup terms, term_taxonomy, term_relationships table
  • cleanup unused Shopp Tags
  • Start from scratch. This option will remove all entries related to your products, categories, tags, prices, terms but will leave your Customers and Orders untouched.

The Shopp Clean plugin should ONLY be used on Shopp installations version 1.3 or higher.
