Why is there a checkbox with the product-slider in the related-product area of magento.

I can not seem to be able to select it in the Themler UI. So I can not format it.

Does it have a function or is this a bug?

See attached pic.

Hello,

The checkbox next to each related product functions correctly on my end: please try checking it in Live Preview. In Themler the checkbox can be checked by right-clicking it and clicking Open Link:

Relating styling of the checkbox - currently it cannot be styled in Themler. However this possibility is planned to be added in future. Please follow Themler updates.

Hi Nettie,

the checkbox is to select multiple items and add them to the cart. Then you probably need to have a button in your slider?

Hi Nettie,

no problem. For now I just hide it with additional CSS code.

As you can see I have raised a number of issues the last few days. I have a few customers now, for whom I use Themler to create as much as possible. (Wordpress/Woocommerce/Magento). And I am pushing to the edge of the functionality of Themler.

The option to include CMS code has helped a lot, to keep most of the development within Themler. Without the need to change files after I am done with creating the theme. This is a huge step forward in maintainability.

I have some ideas on functionality that would almost reduce the need of editing things outside of themler. Shall I put my ideas in a separate item? Also some ideas on billionphotos.

Regards
Jurjen

Hello Jurjen,

First of all thank you for you interest and input! We really appreciate it. I would recommend you to create separate topics for different suggestions as it would be easier to communicate on each topic and to vote for it if necessary.
Relating the issue in question: our developers have explained that it should work in the following way: when the products in Related Product are marked in checkboxes, than by clicking the "Add to Cart" button next to the main product, they are added to cart together. Currently developers are working on fixing the issues so that it works as described. I will let you know about any news on it.

Hi Nettie,

thank you. I suggest you remove the checkbox if no button is used in the design.

Hi Jurjen,

The idea is to make it possible to add one or more extra products alongside the main product without any need to navigate to another product pages. However yes, I suppose, the "Add to Cart" buttons will be removed from this block. In my view, without a checkbox it would be not so easy to add extra items to a main one and to accept it as a single purchase (for a customer) - for example, when showing some accessories as Related products. Please correct me if I'm missing the point.

Hi,

I think the idea is OK. The implementation to use a product slider is not such a good idea in my opinion.

It would be of great value of if you can create a product list function as a block type. This block you can then include on pages. With settings you could create the select statement. (manufacturer, category, etc).

Also custom templates with a custom name would then be a great asset to magento themler.

For instance for creating a page that list products of a certain manufacturer, or a page to show all manufacturers.

I do not think people will select multiple products from a slider. That is not common in webshops. Add to cart with javascript or AJAX is more common.

Just a few thoughts.

Hi Jurjen,

  1. As for Related products and your suggestion in general - thanks for this. I have forwarded it to our developers for consideration.
  2. We are working on Custom Templates for Magento. The feature should be available in some of next updates. Custom Templates can already be used in Wordpress, Joomla, Prestashop and Drupal.
