How to add custome page in opencart

What you need:
– Basic PHP knowledge
– Basic HTML knowledge
– Text Editor

Required files to create a custom page:
– Controller file
– Template file

Optional files:
– Model file
– Language file (I will be using it in this example here)

Controller file

Create a file name ‘static.php’ in /catalog/controller/information/

Code: Select all
<?php
class ControllerInformationStatic extends Controller {
private $error = array();

public function index() {
$this->language->load(‘information/static’); //Optional. This calls for your language file

$this->document->setTitle($this->language->get(‘heading_title’)); //Optional. Set the title of your web page.

$this->data[‘breadcrumbs’] = array();

$this->data[‘breadcrumbs’][] = array(
‘text’      => $this->language->get(‘text_home’),
‘href’      => $this->url->link(‘common/home’),
‘separator’ => false
);

$this->data[‘breadcrumbs’][] = array(
‘text’      => $this->language->get(‘heading_title’),
‘href’      => $this->url->link(‘information/static’),
‘separator’ => $this->language->get(‘text_separator’)
);

$this->data[‘heading_title’] = $this->language->get(‘heading_title’); //Get “heading title” from language file.

if (file_exists(DIR_TEMPLATE . $this->config->get(‘config_template’) . ‘/template/information/static.tpl’)) { //if file exists in your current template folder
$this->template = $this->config->get(‘config_template’) . ‘/template/information/static.tpl’; //get it
} else {
$this->template = ‘default/template/information/static.tpl’; //or get the file from the default folder
}

$this->children = array( //Required. The children files for the page.
‘common/column_left’,
‘common/column_right’,
‘common/content_top’,
‘common/content_bottom’,
‘common/footer’,
‘common/header’
);

$this->response->setOutput($this->render());
}
}
?>

Template file

Create a file name ‘static.tpl’ in /catalog/view/theme/default/template/information/

Code: Select all
<?php echo $header; ?><?php echo $column_left; ?><?php echo $column_right; ?>
<div id=”content”><?php echo $content_top; ?>
<div>
<?php foreach ($breadcrumbs as $breadcrumb) { ?>
<?php echo $breadcrumb[‘separator’]; ?><a href=”<?php echo $breadcrumb[‘href’]; ?>”><?php echo $breadcrumb[‘text’]; ?></a>
<?php } ?>
</div>
<h1><?php echo $heading_title; ?></h1>

YOUR OWN CONTENTS

<?php echo $content_bottom; ?></div>
<?php echo $footer; ?>

Language file

Create a file name ‘static.php’ in /catalog/language/english/information/

Code: Select all
<?php
// Heading
$_[‘heading_title’]  = ‘Static Page’; //Add as many as you want, but remember to call for it in the controller file before you can use it in the template
?>
