Product page

Submitted by PeterLegit on Tue, 2015-01-27 20:49 in

Hello,

Just wondering if I have to create a seperate page for each product I want compared.

Also, how do I get products to be compared to each other? I have 4 of the same products with slight differences in the name. How do I get these products to be compared?

How do I get a custom price table, including the merchants logo, product name, price, and the link?
Right now my price table is very basic. For each product page it has a small image, small description and a small links.

Any help appriciated..
Thanks.

Hello Peter,

The script will automatically create a single page for each compared products - and products are compared by name, so if you have the case where there are 4 versions of the same product with slight differences in name then you can use Product Mapping to bring them together.

Once you have mapped the products (and re-imported all feeds as Product Mapping is only applied at import time), then your product pages will have a price comparison table exactly like you describe - the the logo (see Merchant Logos) / name and price and Visit Store link...

Cheers,
David.

Thanks for the support. However, I think I may have phrased the last question wrong.

This is the result I am getting... {link saved}

I want to know how to change the style of it and add the currency symbol to it.

Heres an example... {link saved}

Sorry for the confusion,
Thanks.

Hello Peter,

I see you're using the WordPress plugin (PriceTapestry.org for WordPress), so firstly about the currency symbol, you can set this from wp-admin > Settings > PriceTapestry.org. Scroll down to the External section, where you will see the setting box for $config_currencyHTML (the names are equivalent to the configuration variables in standalone Price Tapestry). In the box, enter

€

...or as required.

As you will also see on the same page, is the template that makes the price comparison table. Scroll down to the Templates section, where you will see Prices - Before / Each / After. This is where you can modify the actual HTML generated, but more likely you will want to style via the CSS, which you will find on your site as

/wp-content/plugins/pto/resources/pto.css

The first thing I notice, is that your WordPress theme is overriding any padding or spacing on the cells in the price comparison table, so the first thing I would suggest, is in that file look for the following beginning at line 70:

.pto_search table {
  width: 100%;
}

...and REPLACE with:

.pto_search table {
  width: 100%;
}
.pto_search td {
  padding: 20px !important;
}

At the same point you will see other style aspects of the prices table, which you can adjust, or add other styles as required.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
David.
