I have a specific category called "artist. I would like to add that category name to the product details under the product title along with the other default details. It would be hyperlinked to that specific category page (similar to how the brand works) so it would look like:

Brand: Somebrand
Artist: Joe Artist
Product Code: 123xyz
Reward Points: 100
Availability: In Stock

Only products that are included in that one particular category would have this additional link - others would not. I've tried many different snippets of code but the closest I could get was to make it display any/all category names, unlinked, based on the breadcrumb path to that product. I know that there are "author" extensions which have a similar functionality to what I'm looking for, but I've already got an artist category page for each artist and would rather not create an additional (duplicate) page for each artist, which is what the author extensions do.

Any ideas?

Unaware of what you use, I found one free OpenCart v.1.5.6.x Solution for this, wich could be
made to match your Request:

Custom Link in Products:
http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... n_id=21139

Or then, make each Author to be a Manufacturer, and present it's Link by Image and/or Text,
if a Product matches:
Manufacturer image on product and manufacturer page:
http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... n_id=10954

Manufacturer Logo on product page:
http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... n_id=15726

Good Luck
Ernie

Hi Ernie,

Thanks! I forgot to mention that I'm using version 2.0.3.1. That first extension link looks interesting - maybe it can be tweaked for compatibility with the new OC version - I'll check it out. I'm already listing Manufacturer for something else so that probably won't work.

Any other suggestion for 2.0 are welcome.
