Hi All

I have found several topics about how to remove "compare products" link, however
I would like to add it somewhere at the top, lets say between "my account" and "Shopping cart"
so customer has an easy access to comparison list.

I have seen a topic for Open Cart 1.5.x. Unfortunately it does not work for OC 2.0

Forgot to mention, that I use default OpenCart 2.0.1.1 theme

Any advices please?

You can edit the file catalog\view\theme\default\template\common\header.tpl, find

Code: Select all

<li><a href="<?php echo $wishlist; ?>" id="wishlist-total" title="<?php echo $text_wishlist; ?>"><i class="fa fa-heart"></i> <span class="hidden-xs hidden-sm hidden-md"><?php echo $text_wishlist; ?></span></a></li>
and add below code after that line

Code: Select all

<li><a href="<?php global $url; echo $url->link('product/compare'); ?>" title="Compare Product"><i class="fa fa-exchange"></i> <span class="hidden-xs hidden-sm hidden-md">Compare Product</span></a></li>

Thanks for advice, working now :)

However it appears in English only, so it is not translated
in other languages.

Any ideas?

Hi,
Is your store multilingual or just one language?

You can try to replace with code below

Code: Select all

<li><a href="<?php global $url; echo $url->link('product/compare'); ?>" title="<?php global $language; echo $language->get('text_product_compare'); ?>"><i class="fa fa-exchange"></i> <span class="hidden-xs hidden-sm hidden-md"><?php echo $language->get('text_product_compare'); ?></span></a></li>
and go to each language file, for example catalog\language\english\default.php, add code below at the end of file

Code: Select all

$_['text_product_compare'] = 'Compare Products';
Note that translate the ablove text in each language.

Working now!!! Thanks a lot!

In my case the main problem was, that after placing code, you need to go in admin panel of OpenCart -> Modifications and press on "Refresh"

Also the code provided <<< $_['text_product_compare'] = 'Compare Products'; >>> must be inserted at the end without
spaces before.


..................
$_['error_upload_7'] = 'Warning: Failed to write file to disk!';
$_['error_upload_8'] = 'Warning: File upload stopped by extension!';
$_['error_upload_999'] = 'Warning: No error code available!';

$_['text_product_compare'] = 'Compare Products';
