You can also modify the way your product is displayed by creating your own template which will be used to render the product.
Please follow those instructions, we don't recommend you to modify the hikashop plugin directly otherwise your changes will be overwritten when you update HikaShop.

The name of the file should be hikashop_product.php

Create the custom template as explained here, on the created file you can access to the element $varFields that contains all the needed data.

You can display:

  • the name of your product: {product_name}
  • the description of your product: {product_description}
  • the price of your product: {finalPrice}
  • the product picture :  {pictHTML}
  • the url of your product: {link}
Using all those variables, you can create your own product template.
For example:
Show/Hide php code
View source
<div class="acymailing_content">
<h2><a href="{link}">{product_name} {finalPrice}</a></h2>
{pictHTML}
{product_description}
