Wondered if there is any way to add links within the catalogue of products. It would be helpful if links such as 'more info' or 'full spec'. could be added to allow a new page to be opened with expanded product information / more pictures.

Hello Paul

Unfortunately, there is not a way to do this with the default Catalog of Products widget. If you wish, you can set up your own template and incorporate this by using text links to subpages and your own customized PayPal buttons.

You will need to create the store layout using the various widgets such as the Text, Picture and HTML Widgets. The reason for this is because it's not possible to remove the "Buy Now" button, or to add your own HTML created button to the Online Store Widgets.

I know this might sound like a lot of work, but what I would suggest is that you utilize the Column Divider Widget to create your product layout. What you can do is drag the Column Divider Widget onto the page and add Text Widgets to either side with product title and/or description, add a Picture Widget with your product image, then add the HTML Widget and paste your PayPal button code into it. The Widgets can be arranged in the Column Divider Widget in whatever way you would like, such as Picture Widget and Text Widget on one side, and HTML Widget with the PayPal button on the other etc. You can then add another Column Divider Widget beneath the first one and create the same layout for your succeeding products.

Here's information on how to:

Create Links
Create subpages
Create PayPal buttons

I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
