Store opens in pop-up. How to open the store on a page instead of the pop-up?

Last updated
When you add store widgets, like search, minicart, categories menu, to a site page separate from Product browser widget – the main store widget, the store will open in a pop-up. This pop-up contains the whole store and works just fine. But in some cases it is more convenient to open the store on the page instead of the pop-up.
It is possible to setup Ecwid in more convenient way, when your product browser is installed on one page, but you have minicart/vertical categories/search box on all other pages of your site with the help of ecwid_ProductBrowserURL option.

How Ecwid works by default:

  • if a visitor uses the "minicart/vertical categories/search" box widget and the product browser is installed on this page, all actions will be made in it.
  • if he/she does it, but the product browser doesn't exist on the page, the pop-up window with the product browser will be created on this page
In order to get rid of this pop-up, you should use the ecwid_ProductBrowserURL option. If it's set up, Ecwid works in such way:
  • if the visitor uses the "minicart/vertical categories/search" box widget and the product browser isn't installed on this page, he/she will be redirected to the page where the product browser is installed and then the necessary actions will be performed.
For example if a customer searches for a product on the page without a product browser, s/he will be redirected to a page with it and then Ecwid will show the search results on this page.

​How to set up this option

In order to use it, you need to add the following JavaScript code to all pages, where Ecwid widgets are installed:

<script>var ecwid_ProductBrowserURL = "PB_URL";</script> 
where PB_URL is the full URL of the page where your product browser widget (i.e. your Ecwid store) is installed.
For example: 

<script>var ecwid_ProductBrowserURL = "";</script>
