Use another template in runtime


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I am listing a gallery of products and each product, there is the possibility of seeing a rapid or enter the product and see it in detail view. 

I have the following structure 


and would like to pass on to the product in a segment to display quick view 


There any way to use another template in runtime?

......But what is not as changing the template assigned to the page I'm invoking (at runtime)

Is this even possible? A template is tied to a page and its content is mapped to the fields attached to that template. If a page were to use another pages template these relations would be lost....I might be wrong here. Anyway, I don't really get what you are trying to do. Why would you want to use another template at runtime?

actually you can just show different content based on the request type; so if you are doing a quick view, then you show that with Ajax; if you are linking to the page you show the page code;

i'm doing that here:


and here:


so on your template:

<?php if($config->ajax) { ?>

show your markup for the quickview here

<?php } else { ?>

show your normal page code

<?php } ?>

so you don't need the quickview part of the URL
