I thought I’d re-post this here as it’s probably more appropriate!
Does anyone know how I can add an additional checkbox/parameter to the specific settings of an appearance type when editing blocks?
What I want to do is take the products_multicolumns.tpl from the views/products/components and pass the buy_now.tpl call within it show_features=true so that the features for a product are displayed with the other info.
I’ve currently achieved this using hooks (created a product_multicolumns_list.override.tpl in addons\my_changes\hooks\products and customised the code to add this parameter to the buy_now.tpl call.
That’s fine and is does what I want but now where ever I use the products_multicolumns.tpl appearance type for a products content type, I get my override - and I don’t always want to!
So… my question boils down to:
- Can I create my own appearance type for products? and how. I’ve tried just copying the products_multicolums.tpl and renaming it but it doesn’t appear in the appearance type drop down.
- Can I add another parameter to the specific settings values for an existing appearance type?
I got as far as following the admin code to the update.tpl in admin\views\block_manager but could see how the select dropdown options where being populated.
thanks for any pointers/help
