UGAL's product catalogs have just been updated with a new functionality: linked products. Linked products are links to other products that are displayed at the bottom of a product page under a "See also" header:
Linked products can be used for example for a list of accessories, or a list of other products that visitors of a page should consider.
Manage linked products
When you edit a product, a new tab is available to manage its linked products:
To add a new linked product:
- Search for the product to link on the right hand side of the page.
- Click its name on the list to link the selected product.
Once you have linked a few products, you can change their display order by drag and dropping them on the left hand side of the page.
Linked products display options
Two options are available to display links products on the product page: with or without photos. To change the setting, head over to the product catalog properties page, and choose the display style you'd like to use:
Attention custom themes
The HTML output for linked products requires a few lines of CSS code to display properly. All UGAL standard themes have been updated to support linked products, but if you use a custom theme fro your website, it needs to be brought up to speed. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance updating your custom theme.
This is our first functionality update of 2013. We hope that you will like it!
