Hi to all OpenCart expert,

I am currently using OpenCart version 1.4.9.3. I want to add another tab next to the Additional Image on the product page. It is call the 'Q&A'. This is for the customers to ask question related to the product. I will be able to answer the question in the admin and both the question and answer will be post in the Q&A tab. The concept is like the review tab but without the rating.

I am willing to pay for this and here are some screenshot for the idea. I copied the review page and photoshop it. In QNA-3.jpg, The Question and Answer should be separate which are mark with an red arrow.

Hope that somebody can help with this and thank you in advance.

The product page should look like this :
QNA-1.jpg

This is the Q&A Tab - QNA-1.jpg (172.53 KiB) Viewed 4347 times

QNA-2.jpg

This is the Question Box. It is same with the review but without the rating - QNA-2.jpg (113.64 KiB) Viewed 4347 times

And here are the screenshot in the admin. I photoshop the review dropdown and it should look like this :

Thank you again.

This is the same type of thing I am looking for (though I want mine to be a "Specs" tab).

As each product would have it's won Specs / Q&A, I would be fine if the admin panel allowed for editing either within the product, or in a separate area as OnNets has specified.

There is more than one interested in this, so if anyone's feeling up to the task or knows how to do it and feels like helping, it'd be much appreciated!


Thank you,
Jared

I would recommend using something like DISQUS. I added that on my site a while back (I have to re-add it to my new theme) but it worked great and was very easy to plugin. I'd actually like to switch to DISQUS for the extension store comments

This would not work for a specs tab though, would it? Sorry, I am just not that familiar with Disqus and am not sure how this would work...

Hi Qphoria,

I don't think DISQUS is what I want. My Q&A is a straight forward "customer ask - I answer" format.

Actually the review is something similar to my Q&A. I wonder if you can teach me how to:
1. Remove the ratings on every review tpl and php file.
2. Add html on the review box in admin->review.

I not very good at php but I can follow step by step instruction for copy and paste.

Thank you.

That's fantastic! Looks really good, nice work. I'm sure that your customers will be looking at that quite a lot.

Can I ask which files you had to modify? I just want to make a specifications tab, but do not know how.


Thank you,
Jared

Hi jared,

If you need to add another tab, then I don't really know how to do it. But if you want to use the review to modify, here is the file you need to look into :

1. admin/controller/catalog/review.php
2. admin/model/catalog/review.php
3. admin/language/english/catalog/review.php
4. catalog/controller/product/product.php
5. catalog/model/catalog/review.php
6. catalog/language/english/product/product.php
7. catalog/view/theme/YOURTHEME/template/product/product.tpl

However if you want to use the review to modify and don't want the rating, then you have to remove those (rating/star/good/bad) from all the product, category, manufacturer, search, featured, latest, special....... guess you have to search within the opencart file to remove this. That's why I said have a lot to modify.

Hope this help. Please let me know if you need anymore help. Will help the best I can.

Ah, I see. Ok then. I will certainly keep this in mind for when I am more prepared to really tackle this issue!

That looks fantastic! How much would you charge for a "Specs" tab? I'd just like to be able to enter dimensions and technical specifications for each product on their product page, so that customers can know exactly which model and configurations they are getting. I would just want to be able to use the standard editor to make content for each product in this area.


Thank you,
Jared

If I understand you correctly, Jared, you want to duplicate the Description tab functionality for a new tab named Specs?
