These shortcodes will be used for Joomla Article layouts, since Joomla layouts cannot be managed by J2store. Joomla has developed and maintained these shortcodes.

While Product pages/product list layout are supposed to display product and being maintained by J2store, they already has had PHP code in the view files for displaying elements and products.

But, Core Joomla layouts and article layouts don’t. Therefore, we need the shortcode for Joomla layouts. These shortcodes will not work in product layouts of J2store.

Notice: If you add more shortcodes to J2store pages (processed in the products), it will result in force the processing/invoking J2store and performance issues.

Additional shortcodes

Beside the primary shortcode, you are also possible to use these additional codes inside {j2store}{/j2store}, every code should be divided by a | symbol

To place this shortcode, please remember to change Add to placement mode by going to J2store > Configuration > Cart tab > set Add to cart placement as Both or Within article using tag, then Save the changes.

For example:


It will work in all place modes of Add to cart. Notice to use these codes carefully for improving performance.
