Good evening everybody

I need extra information for wholesalers in products

I have created a custom text area field in the product table.
its name is: pro_omschrijving
it has the right user group access settings

My question:
Which view do I need to edit to make the field visible just above the main description on the product display page.

Thanks in advance!

Dick

Hi,

Turn on the "Display view files" setting of the HikaShop configuration and look at your product details page again and you'll see which view file is used for which area.
It will probably be the product / show_default.php view file that you'll have to edit.

Hello Nicolas

Yes, it was the file I needed but unfortunately my knowledge and skills of PHP is not sufficient enough to get the field visible where I want it.

I solved it with a workaround:

Since I only needed a handful different texts I put these in custom modules.
> With Regular Labs' "Advanced Module Manager" I assigned these to the user groups.
> with {loadmoduleid …} I show the modules in the description field of the product.
This works even better as I cab have an image in the module as well.

Thanks for your time
