Hello,
I would like to place a link on any product page where a potential customer can send an individual e-mail with questions about the product etc.

Linking the existent contact form is not the problem. But is it possible, to transmit the product-no as subject (or a specific string which i can pass through) like "index.php?route=information/contact&subject='Hello world'" ?

Thanks for your help!

This is possible with a bit of coding :)

Step 1, edit the product page:
Open catalog/view/theme/your_template/template/view/product.tpl

Search for this code:

Code: Select all

      <div class="image-additional">
        <?php foreach ($images as $image) { ?>
        <a href="<?php echo $image['popup']; ?>" title="<?php echo $heading_title; ?>" class="colorbox" rel="colorbox"><img src="<?php echo $image['thumb']; ?>" title="<?php echo $heading_title; ?>" alt="<?php echo $heading_title; ?>" /></a>
        <?php } ?>
      </div>
underneath add:

Code: Select all

<a href="index.php?route=information/contact&subject=<?php echo $heading_title; ?>" class="button">Ask Question about this item</a>
That should display a button in your product page. That code can be moved about so it is in the place you want it to be. You can change the text to whatever you link within the link.

Step 2, altering the contact controller:

Here you want to tell the contact page there is some more data that is to be email. You are also telling the controller thta if there is no product subject, then the subject is to be changed to the original subject used in OC.

Open catalog/controller/information/contact.php
Search for this code:

Code: Select all

$this->data['entry_captcha'] = $this->language->get('entry_captcha');
and underneath add:

Code: Select all

if (isset($this->request->get['subject'])) {
$this->data['subject'] = $this->request->get['subject'];
}else{
$this->data['subject'] = '';
}
then replace this:

Code: Select all

$mail->setSubject(html_entity_decode(sprintf($this->language->get('email_subject'), $this->request->post['name']), ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'));
with:

Code: Select all

if(isset($this->request->post['subject'])){
$mail->setSubject(html_entity_decode(sprintf($this->request->post['subject'], $this->request->post['name']), ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'));
}else{
$mail->setSubject(html_entity_decode(sprintf($this->language->get('email_subject'), $this->request->post['name']), ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'));
}
Step 3, editing the actual contact form:
Open catalog/view/theme/your_template/information/contact.tpl

Search for this code:

Code: Select all

    <?php if ($error_email) { ?>
    <span class="error"><?php echo $error_email; ?></span>
    <?php } ?>
    <br />
and underneath it add

Code: Select all

    <b>Subject: </b><br />
    <b>Question about item: <?php echo $subject; ?></b>
    <input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Question about item: <?php echo $subject; ?>" />
    <br /><br />
The wording can be changed within the <input /> and <b> tags. The wording with in the <b> tag is what the user sees on the contact oage, the value within the input field is what is actually in the email.

I hope this helps,

Let me know how you get on :)

This solution is for 1.5.x only. I am not familiar with 1.4.x, I'm sure it wil be something small.

Did you edit all the files accordingly?

Hi thanks for the code works really well, just a question is there a way to add price in subject I tried to add <?php echo $price; ?> but it wouldn't show the button at all then.

Cheers

Thanks Peter, I've using your hack for years, now I had to rebuild my shop and I didn't find your code so once I got it I built the vqmod for more comfort on modifying files. Great work.
