Hi Hikashop Support,

I'm trying to edit the layout of a product page. Making changes in CSS isn't enough, as I want to change the structure of these pages. From what I understand, I will need to edit a "Views" PHP file. Is this correct? If yes, what is the name of this file?

Alternatively, is there a way of getting more options in "Layout on product page"?

Many Thanks.

Hi,

You can edit the view files of HikaShop via the menu Display>Views.
To know which view file is used where, you should activate the "Display view files" setting under the Advanced tab of the HikaShop configuration. You'll see around each view file some dotted line along with the file name and view name corresponding to the area so that you can easily find it in the Display>Views menu.
You'll also see that when you edit the product / show_default.php view file, you'll be able to change its name with an input field and that will create a new layout that you'll be able to select in the "layout on product page" setting.
