    Hello!

    I would love to add a "SHOP PRODUCTS ON THIS PAGE" section that is similar to the one at the very bottom of this page, except I'd like the product name to be visible underneath the image, instead of only on hover: http://www.atelierdore.com/style/claire-thomson-jonville-x-pallas/

    The images and title of the image underneath should both link out to a new browser page of the product that's clicked. These products would NOT live on my own website, they would be products of other websites that I'm promoting. There should be slider arrows so the user can scroll through them all, just like on the website I shared above.

    Is it possible using any of the Kalium widgets?

    I've tried everything...making a custom grid, adding an image carousel, etc. and nothing achieves this same functionality.

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi Montana,

    Can you please send me a screenshot of that area that you are mentioning so I can tell you if that is possible with Kalium or not?

    Thank you!

    Kind regards,
    Ylli

    Hi Ylli,

    See attached screenshot, and thank you! So in summary:

    1. Unlike in the screenshot, I would like to have text (ideally the "Title" of the photo) sitting underneath each image. 

    2. Each image will have a different, unique link to a product on another website.

    Hi,

    1— You can choose the default layout:

     
    (view on a new page)

    so then your products will show like this:


    (view on a new page) 

    2— I think that you want to make affiliate/external product, to learn how to do that please see this video:

    Have a great day!

    Kind regards,
    Ylli

    Hello Ylli,

    Thank you for the response! Unfortunately, I don't think WooCommerce will work as these are not MY products.They are OTHER peoples products. If you click on this link and scroll down, you'll be able to see exactly what I mean. 

    http://www.atelierdore.com/style/claire-thomson-jonville-x-pallas/

    I simply want to display multiple images in a carousel format, each with a different link that will lead to products on other people's websites. 

    Does that make sense? 

    Appreciate your help,

    Montana

    Hello Ylli,

    So, I went ahead and tried your Product idea. See below page where I'm experimenting with it.

    It works in terms of how it looks, but not the link. 

    I don't want it to link to a product page, but rather directly to the "buy product" link that's associated with it on the product creation page. So, you should click on the camera, for example, and go directly to the external link in a new tab.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks!

    Hi Montana,

    I understand what you asked. You want to sell products that are in other shops, so when clients click the product, it will send them to the site that you have added the link for that product.

    Please see the video for my second question and you can also read the article that I send to you below the video.

    Have a great day!

    Kind regards,
    Ylli

    HI Ylli,

    I watched the video you sent and it doesn't explain my question:

    "I don't want it to link to a product page, but rather directly to the "buy product" link that's associated with it on the product creation page. So, you should click on the camera, for example, and go directly to the external link in a new tab."

    Please go to this page (https://almasdelsol.com/product-test/) > click on the product > it goes to another product page that looks like the screenshot in the attachment. 

    I DO NOT WANT THE USER TO SEE THE PRODUCT SPECIFIC PAGE IN THE SCREENSHOT.

    I want them to go DIRECTLY to the external link, and not have to go to a product-specific page like this.

    So, the flow should look like this: 

    1. Click on the image in the carousel.

    2. A new tab will open with the external link.

    Does that make sense and if yes is it possible?

    Thank you again!

    Montana

    Hi Montana,

    Thanks for your explanation. Now I understand exactly what you're asking. I searched for it and it seems that WooCommerce doesn't offer this option but there is a plugin that can do this job for you.

    Here is an article WooCommerce - Redirect external products offsite (disable single listings) that has a code that can promises that does the same thing but I'm not sure if it still works because the post was made in 2016. Anyway you can try it.

    Also here is a plugin WooCommerce Improved External Products and as you can see in the description it says that the PRO version of the plugin offers ability to open external products in a new tab from product archives.

    If you're looking for professional help in this matter, there's always someone available for such tasks on the WP Kraken or Codeable. Pricing and timeline are always straightforward there and that's the main reason for recommending those services.

    I wish you a great day!

    Kind regards,
    Ylli

    Hi Montana,

    I'm very glad to hear that the plugin did the jobAnd i'm sorry that I didn't understand exactly what you wanted to achieve from the beginning.

    I wish you a great day!

    P.S: If you like the theme, it would help us a lot if you could give us a five-star rating on Themeforest from your Downloads tab.

    A huge thank you from Laborator in advance!

    Kind regards,
    Ylli
