I'm not sure if this is what you're after, but we've got an addon which can show chunks of products wherever you want in any format you want. We call it our "product showcase" addon:


If you buy/use it, please note step 7 in the readme file which gives extra notes on how to be able to use template logic from within panels (ie on any page) -

This step is only relevant if you want to display ShowCased products in your side panels. If you're only using ShowCased products in the main contents of specific asps (eg "default.asp") then you can skip this step.

If you want to show a set of ShowCased products in a side panel (i.e. on every page, for example in the top panel to show the latest 10 products), then you will need to do the following.

The ShowCase products logic uses the file "shopfileio.asp", which is not included in "shop$db.asp". This means that wherever you want to show ShowCased products then the main asp file which you are browsing must have "shopfileio.asp" included either in the file you are loading or in one of the files which is already included.

For this to work without having "shopfileio.asp" included twice in some of your asp files (so that you can use the ShowCase in your side panels) you need to:

1. Delete shopfileio.asp includes
Do a text search in all your files, and wherever you see this line you should delete that line:

<!--#include file="shopfileio.asp"-->

This will normally be in the following files, but you should check elsewhere too:


2. Delete byz_showcase_products.asp includes
Do a text search in all your files, and wherever you see this line you should delete that line:

<!--#include file="byz_showcase_products.asp"-->

This will normally be in the following file, but you should check elsewhere too:


3. Add shopfileio.asp and byz_showcase_products.asp to shop$db.asp
At the bottom of your shop$db.asp file, you need to add the following lines:

<!--#include file="byz_showcase_products.asp"-->
<!--#include file="shopfileio.asp"-->

Once you've done this you can then use the ShowCase product functions anywhere in any of your side panels or in custom pages that you build without having to add the includes to the individual files.
