This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.

How can I display additional product data in wt_cart?

Note: The described method below is not the best way anymore. We have added a new solution which is described in the chapter Add new fields to wt_cart.

Maybe you want to display one image for each product in wt_cart. This can be easily achieved by adding some lines of Typoscript code to your installation. We assume that your product table stores the name of the product image, you've created an extension Typoscript template and you're using your own HTML template for wt_cart.

Add the following lines to your extension Typoscript template:


plugin.tx_wtcart_pi1 {
  settings {
    fields {
      product_image = CONTENT
      product_image {
        # name of your db which stores your products
        table = tx_myext_tableName
        select {
          # uid of sysfolder where your products are stored
          pidInList = 7
          max = 1
          andWhere.cObject = TEXT
          andWhere.cObject.field = puid
          andWhere.cObject.wrap = uid=|
        renderObj = IMAGE
        renderObj {
          # width of image
          file.width = 85
          # height of image
          file.height = 65
          # upload folder of your product extension
          file.import = uploads/tx_myext/
          file.import.field = image
          # select first image
          file.import.listNum = 0
          altText.field = title

Furthermore you have to add the new marker ###PRODUCT_IMAGE### to your HTML template for wt_cart.
