Inserting Same Additional Info Block to Products in Category

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am adding products to my store. There are 3 main categories. I would like to add 'Additional Info' under each product in each category. The products have the same Additional Info but if I want to change them I have to change them all individually.

Is there a way to make one file of Additional Info and pull it into all products in that category? So I can simply change one Additional Info section and it updates all?

Thanks

Mark

There isn't a "feature" that can do this, but a developer could write some code to achieve this, pulling in content according to the product's category. That said, it will depend on the content that you want to add. For example, it may be a few simple lines of text or it may be structured content consisting of different blocks.

Thanks.

It doesn't need to be dependant on category. It's just that if I have 30 products with the same Additional Info and I wanted to change a common detail I would need to change 30. 

If you share link to a product + describe text you want to add, we can give the code to add text to 30 products

Hi @tuanphan

I'm hoping to do the same thing, but I notice that SparkyMark didn't provide you an example to create the example code.

I'm wondering if it would be possible to do it this way:

1. Create an individual page with the text (formatting included), and leave it unlinked on my site.

Example of what I need: https://www.whoishenri.com/product-information

2. Embed the content of this page through a custom code block on to every product's "additional info" section on the product page (I've tried using the SS embed feature to do this, but it won't work).

Example product page to display content (it's currently manually inserted on to this page to show you what it would look like): https://www.whoishenri.com/full-collection/p/crisp-sunshine

Thanks!

Hi @tuanphan

Update...

I've created the following <iframe> code and deployed successfully in the "additional info" section on the product page: https://www.whoishenri.com/full-collection/p/crisp-sunshine

It is now successfully bringing in the information from https://www.whoishenri.com/product-information

Quote

<head>
  <style> iframe { border: none } </style>
</head>
<body>
  <iframe src="https://whoishenri.com/product-information"
          scrolling="yes" width="100%" height="700" allowfullscreen sandbox>
    <p>
      <a href="https://whoishenri.com/product-information">
         Fallback link for browsers that don't support iframes
      </a>
    </p>
  </iframe>
</body>

The remaining challenge I wonder if you could help me with:

  • I don't want to show a scrolling option on desktop/ tablet. But I need to have scrolling="yes" so that the iframe doesn't cut off at 700px on mobile and cut off the information.
  • Is it possible to have a responsive iframe without scrolling?

Thank you!
