youtube plugin not working in PM template only 8 years 4 months ago #7881

Hi,

you should better define a new "custom field" layout position for that Youtube plugin, then you can show the plugin in anywhere you would like within the product details page.

Here is a tutorial to define a new custom field layout position (in my example i will use "youtube" but you can use anything you want or create as many as you want)

1- Open this PHP file:
/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/html/com_virtuemat/productdetails/default.php

2- The PHP lines you need to include (to load the "youtube" position) are these:
  <div class="clear"></div>
    <?php if (!empty($this->product->customfieldsSorted['youtube'])) { ?>
    	<?php $this->position='youtube';
		echo $this->loadTemplate('customfields'); ?>
   <?php } ?>    
   <div class="clear"></div>	 

Where ever you put those lines, the custom field with the "youtube" layout position will be shown in there.

If you want to show it inside the "Product Description" TAB after the "product description" text, then the location is here:

If you want to show the plugin above the "Add to Cart" button, then the location is here:

You are going to pick a location and include the lines within the "default.php" depends on wherever you want to show the plugin.

THEN!!.
Open the "youtube" custom field and type "youtube" to it's position. (so this plugin will be loaded only within the "youtube" layout positions that you just defined on the default.php file)

(or alternatively you can use the pre-defined layout positions, they are ontop and onbot. But creating a new layout position will make much more sense, so it won't conflict with other things)

Case solved. Topic is closed.
