i am writing a plugin that hooks into the vendor page.


My first question is: which template is responsible for the Vendor Page? If my store adress was cs-cart.com, then each "vendor x" has a page at cs-cart.com/vendor-x, cs-cart.com/vendor-y. Which template is this? If I click "more" on this page, I am redirected to dispatch companies.view of the company ID.


Second question: on dispatch=companies.view, there are some tabs that say "description", "reviews". I want to add more tabs there. However, I dont understand how the common/tabsbox.tpl determines which tabs are displayed. Is it not possible to use the companies:tabs hook to add more tabs?

This plugin is not bad, but unfortunately it uses the Website Tab which I have disabled for my Vendors.


Still very helpful. Thanks very much!

What menu area it uses is probably defined in it's [ADDON]/schemas/menu/menu.post.php file and should be able to be easily changed.


Most likely the template you're interested in is:design/themes/responsive/templates/views/companies/view.tpl

You would use thehook 'companies:tabs' to add additional tabs to the page.

A vendor's products are shown using the products.tpl template in the same directory.
