Avoiding the pop up


Hello again,

On this page I have the product browser http://www.abstackle.co.uk/ and if I search for an item using the search box the results are nicely displayed in the page.

Now if you go to this page http://www.abstackle.co.uk/about_us.html and search for something, the results are displayed in a pop window (which I'd like to avoid)

Now I'm pretty sure there is a bit of code that I've seen here that can be added to the about us page to force the search results to display in the page that's containing the product browser. I've looked and looked for it but I can't find it :-(

Can anyone point me in the right in the right direction?

Thanks

Hi,

I am trying to get rid of the pop up box that appears when someone searches for an item. Problem is, I do not have the Product Browser, but instead have each category on each webpage. How do I get rid of the pop up box?

What if you dont have the product browser installed on your website, but instead have each category per webpage. How do you prevent the pop up window? This is my website www.derobelingerie.com

Hello,

Thanks a lot for your question!

I have checked your store and seen that the search works fine and the results are open in the same window, not in a pop-up (please see the screenshot: http://take.ms/bk3Ia).

I believe you have already fixed this, and please let me explain the solution for our other users who might face a similar issue and visit this thread.

The thing is that Ecwid always opens the search results in a pop-up window when there is no product browser on the page where the search widget is located.

In order to avoid this pop-up, you should use the "ecwid_ProductBrowserURL" option. With this option Ecwid works like this: when a visitor uses the "Search" box widget on a page with no product browser installed, they get redirected to a special page where the Product Browser is installed and Ecwid shows the search results on that page.

So you can just create a new page on your site and install a product browser there, so your customers will be redirected to that page for the search results.

To set "ecwid_ProductBrowserURL" option, you need to add the following JavaScript code to all the pages, where Ecwid widgets are installed:
Code:
 
<script> var ecwid_ProductBrowserURL = "PB_URL"; </script>
where PB_URL is the full URL of the page where your product browser is installed.

When this is done, the search results will be open on a separate page, not in a popup.
